SUPEL MEN ARE BUSY
FIXING YANKS' SHOES
(By United Press.
Coblenz, Feb. 25.--(By Mail.)-
Frdim fighting American soldiers in
the Argonne to voluntarily repairing
shoes for these same Americans is a
long jump. Several score discharged
Gernman soldiers have made it.
In their withdrawal from the
Rhine the German army left behind
about 80,000 pounds of shoe leather,
and a large quantity of shoe machin
ery. Maior Lewis Landes of the
salvage department conceived the
idea of using the leather and ma
chinery to repair the footgear of the
troops in the occupied area, thereby
saving the shiipping space necessary
to shipl the shoes to France and back
again. So he set up a big repair
shop with about 100 German em
ployes hired in Coblenz. About half
of these are demobilized soldiers who
were glad to get work, even at re
pairing the shoes of their enemies.
