poor opinion of Fritz as n fighting man.
They were unanimous, tho attache de
clared. In stating that the Germans
were long-dlstanco fighters only. As one
ot them said:
"They are not so bad when they are
50 yards away with a machine gun, but
at close quarters the German soldiers
are no good."
Marine after marine assorted that
when he and his comrades got Into ac
tual fighting contact with tho enemy
there was no fisht left In him. Then
the Germans would throw down their
guns, and, waving their hands over
their heads, cry out "Kameradl"
Feel Contempt for Huns.
"Our men," added the attache, "gave
me the Impression of looking with ut
ter contempt upon the German soldiers,
who can fight only when they feel that
they have the protection o artillery
and-gas, and surrender when It comes
to hand to hnnd fighting.
"Far from feeling the slightest dread
of the enemy, every man expressed
eagerness to get out of hospltnl and
return to the front. Every one of them
wanted n chance of getting even with
the Germans for hnvlng been gassed
"The men were Justly proud of the
record that the marines had made, and
their morale appeared to be of the
very highest quality. The cheerful
ness of all, Including some Infantry In
the wards, may be summarized by the
remark of one recovering from gas:
'Why,' ho said, 'there's nothing In It.
When all of us marines get going, wo
will wipe Fritz off tho map, and we
will eat our next Christmas dinner at
home at that'"
A British officer who has seen much
of the American marines nt their head
quarters In France, and seen them at
work against the Boche, writing on
what he describes as "an instructive
glimpse at the American war spirit
nnd American efficiency in the field,"
"On tho roads to the front there Is
perpetual movement Ilundreds of mo
tor lorries, each ono packed with
French soldiers, pass us in quick suc
cession on their way to another part
of tho line. Again and again we pass
bodies of American troops on the
