woods arc simply torn all to pieces.
We saw many German dead and some
Americans that they have now had

would send me up to that Reck of the

realizes that be Is doing something
to help win tho war when he la up
there. Kveryone Is busy almost da

kicking. Ail any one thinks of is
getting a few more "bosches." We
only stayed about 8 hours In Paris
this time and slept most or that time.
I wish they would get everyone of
those slackers in tbat country and a
lot that I know in Spokane. I can't
