MINOR IN THE SHOT-TORN VOSGES WAR ZONE
f" '' "
"Churches make fine marks for the gunners," writes Cartoonist Robert
Minor from the Vosges war zone in eastern France, where the fighting
between the French and the Germans has been continuous since the begin
ning of the war. "This fine old church tower is in the village of Cerbeviller.
The French undoubtedly used it as a watch tower to spy on the Germans.
So the latter turned their great 77s on it The tower was hit eight times.
The mystery to me is why the first shot did not bring it down. Most church
steeples in America would have tumbled at one shell from a tremendous
77-gun. But, of course, over here, the men who build put them up to stay."
