GERMANY CAN OFFER
WAR'S EFFECTS NOT SEEN
Licutcnant-ColoncI George A. White
Compares Frcncli Towns Willi
Those in Fatherland.
An interesting description of con
ditions in Germany is contained in a
letter just received in Portland from
I-ieutenant-Colonel George A. White.
It was written on February 5 at Koln,
and contrasts the German cities and
villages with the ruined towns of
France and Belgium. Lieutenant
Colonel White, wno has been serving
on the staff ot General Pershing, gives
no information as to when he expects
to return to this country.
The letter follows:
"Left Chaumont late last month after
two hurried trips to the peace confer
ence at Paris, where I had business.
.Started late and the first night got no
further than Nancy. The next morning
moved on up through the Port a Moris
son country to the fortress city of Metz,
crossing the Moselle river at that point.
Metz Held bjr French.
"Metz is held by the French and the
only Americans there are a few mili
tary police who keep an eye open for
any Americans who ' might wander
away A. W. O. L. (absence without
leave.) This town struck me as more
French than German in its outward
aspects. It dates back beyond the
Roman era and in comparatively re
cent times has changed hands as be
tween the Germans and French. Unlike
Nancy, which shows the effects of many
boche air raids. J.Ietz displayed few
evidences of the numerous air raids
our avions are supposed to have made
upon it during the late summer. In
fact there was nothing in Germany so
far as 1 could see to suggest that the
war had gone hard with them.
"We stopped for lunch at a little
German town held by the French the
cafe was filled with French officers.
The waiters, were Germans at least
residents of Lorraine. The French are
not especially tolerant of the German
language in this area, which is part of
old Lorraine which France now gets
back. When I addressed a waiter in
German and began ordering something
to eat he looked about him in a
startled way and responded in French.
Later he leaned over my shoulder and
spoke German in very low tones. He
said he had just lately been released
from the German army after four years
French . Cannot Forget.
"No need for anti-fraternization or
ders here, apparently. The French are
not inclined to forget their ruined bor
der lands in a hurry. There was no
ovidence that they cared to fraternize
with the German section of the popu
lace. German stores were conspic
uously placarded forbidding allied sol
diers to enter. Inadverently I stepped
into one and tho clerk nearly had a
nervous chill ushering me out.
"Next we stopped at Luxemburg,
with its bristling fortifications dating
back to mediaeval and ancient feuds
back in the days when the French and
Spaniards used to take Luxemburg
when wanting something better to do.
An elaboraten system of fortification
is laid out.
"We saw a few specimens of the
Luxemburg army comic opera, soldiers
with white epaulettes. The army num
bers about 250 men and they could
easily be assigned to the cast of the
"Chocolate Soldier" without changing
their habits or uniforms much.
"At Trier or Treves wc spent a night
this was the first German city in
which we had a force and a headquar
ters. We got accommodations at a lit
tle German hotel and got our first
taste of German comforts heat and a
bath. Everywhere the Germans keep
their houses and stores warm. The
i'rench cither require little heat or
can't afford it. Unless in an American
barracks enjoyed by the few troops not
in billets with the natives, I have yet
to -find a warm place in France since
the winter cet in.
Bath Tab la Diaeovery.
"We moved on to Wittlich for cupper
and then to Cocheiiu, where we were
put up for the night by an old Ger
man couple whose only immediate in
terest in life appeared to be that of
making us comfortable (probably as
per instructions). It was quite novel
to find here a bath tub with, at least
"The bath tub is not an institution
In France it is probably not prohibited
by statute, but restricted by custom.
Perhaps there is truth in the report
that the bath tub industry in France
is throttled by the perfume industry.
Next morning we proceeded up the
wonderful Moselle valley to Comblenz,
headquarters of the army of occirpation
(American). The valley of the Moselle
is rarely beautiful as it leads towards
its point of confluence with the Rhine
at Coblenz. It is plied with ancient
appearing sailing craft hauling sup
plies for the natives. The river is
smaller than the Willamette at Port
land. The cenery is like that between
Oregon City and Salem, except that
agriculture is intensified a hundred
"Kvery foot of land 13 cultivated, the
steeper hillsides being terraced even
where almost perpendicular. There are
few farm houses, the farmers living in
small towns and settlements, a survival
of feudal days. Here and there a
great castle sits atop a rocky hillside,
harking back to the flays when might
alone epelled local security. These old
castles now would hardly survive a
half dozen well-directed shots from a
heavy field gun. But of course they
are all intact only in France and Bel
gium have castles, cities and towns
been laid in waste.
Troops Are Comfortable,
"In Coblenz tho headquarters troops
were quite at home. Here they have
taken over the leading hotels and such
comfortable homes as they pleased in
which to billet troops. The army is
entitled certainly to exact comforts
from a people who have caused them
so much suffering, and the Germans
seem to be disciplined to this fact.
"At Hohr, half a dozen miles the
other side of the Rhine from Coblenz, I
camo across the 148th field artil
lery here the regimental headquarters
had taken over tho mayor's residence.
Taken over everything from tapestries
to oervants and were quartered with all
the comforts of luxury-loving million
"res. The men were comfortably bil
le'ted in the town. Jt was a hard place
to leave (unless to go home) and the
soldiers are surely entitled to its com
forts for winter quarters, for the last
time I saw them they were in the
remnants' of Cunel in the Argonne
