"Your letter of January 4 to the commanding officer
asking for particulars concerning your son's death came yes
terday and was given to me.
"Aubrey, joined the company just before the Chateau
Thierry fighting. I was in command of the company then
and continued in that position until after the armistice, so I
knew him very well.
"During all the fighting Aubrey did his part well. He
' was afraid of nothing and the others all looked up to him.
I do not remember a time that I met him that he was not
smiling, no matter how trying and terrible the conditions.
He was a friend of everyone; everyone liked him.
"In Bellau Bois, which is north of Verdun about 20 kil
ometers, the Bosche put over a small counter attack on Oc-
tober 28 and drove back some of the men from another com-
' pany who were trying to hold the line. The companies were
very small there, so small that a battalion was not as strong
as a full strength company. I went to where our battalion
was staying in support, and called for volunteers to help in
getting the old line back again. I was nearest our own com
pany at the time and Aubrey was the first man to reach me
with his chauchat (French automatic) ready. In a few min
utes we were rushing the line, Aubrey beside me. A ma
chine gun bullet struck him and. he dropped. I could not
stop then, but just after the affair was over and the line
retaken, 1 went back to look for hirrt and found him lying
where he had fallen with a bullet hole through his chest.
As the fire was too heavy there he was not buried until two
days later, when Chaplain Rollins and Father O'Connor of
the regiment buried him with prayers in a little cemetery
near where he had fallen.
"Your son was a brave man and besides my knowing
him well, he attracted my special attention on several occa
sions by his action under fire. I should have promoted him
had he only come through this action. He was cited in orders
three different times for bravery in action.
"Aubrey was a straightforward, brave little man at all
times, and I feel that J cannot praise him too much. I have

assistant forester, who was sent
to Alaska early last summer by

is that the same thing is the mat

of the world that it "is suffer

Editor Statesman: I am sur

about the action of some commis
sion In deciding to remove Mr.
and Mrs. Gilbert from tho state
boys' industrial school. As a wo
man I am glad to see that one
state official opposes the change
for which no one has ever given
a reason of any sort whatsoever
All who. have ever visited the in

acquainted with the work Super
intendent and Mrs. Gilbert arG
doing with the 10 boys give it
the highest commendation.
It seems it has been decided
that the school should be run on
the cottage or seggregation plan,
and that is given as the only rea
son for a change in management.
To bring this into operation an
expensive commission travels all
over the east to visit industrial
schools and bring back a new man
and his wife, as though this were
a new idea. Now, what are the
facts, Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert have
been advocates of seggregation
and in fact have seggregated the
older and the younger boys. Mr.
and Mrs. Gilbert were trained in
the same Iowa industrial school
at Eldora where the proposed new
superintendent and his wife come
from. Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert live
in the same building with the boys

are to get $5000 a year. At pre
sent I am informed he gets $2500
a year, and bis wife is not em
ployed. A home is to be built for
them when they come to Oregon
that will cost several thousand a

convicts are worked, and the old
reform school is to bo used for a
home for dope fiends. The site
is also condemned by the report
of a federal official who makes
a special study of reformatory
wor kfor boys.
Why have they changed over in
favor of the condemned site? Is
the commission afraid that the
architecht will not get his $15,

it is not rushed through before
the next legislature? If thev
