Cpl. Redman In Germany JELbs Inspiration to Send
Us A Bit of News. Another Yank Tells of
Receiving Home Made Socks.
Batteries B and E, 135th Field
Artillery, have rejoined the 37th
Division in France. Tins means
that the battery men will sail for
home whenever that division
The word came in a cablegram
received Monday morning from
Lieut. Col. George Greenhalgh.
The cable reads:
""Left Pierrefitte the 4th for
Segre, near Le Alans. All well.
Serge is where the 37th Divisipn
is located at present. Its next
move -will doubcless be for a port

Earl Laumann, with the 61st
Engineers, in far-away France,
was fortunate in receiving a pair
of socks knit by a local Red Cross
worker, Clerus Hoffman, and here
is his letter of appreciation :
Rennes, Ille et Villaine, France,
Dec. 30, 1918.
Dear Little Friend : Early yes
terday morning, about three
o'clock, upon being from duty and
due for my regular weekly bath, I
thought that it would not be a bad
stunt to take it early in the day
when things were not so busy, and
so I made a dive for my barracks
bag and got a clean outfit to put
on. Well, I took the bath in water
that felt like ice and the air like
the weather in Greenland and, be
lieve me, I shivered worse than the
first time that I heard the big
shells play tag with me. Well, the
worst came when I found that I
had to take my sock off to take
out the contents, which I found
was a note explaining that a little
soldier boy in the old Burg had
made that particular pair and it
sure made me' feci proud to think
that I was the lucky one to get
them. If you were unable to wear
"Uncle Sam's" buttons you did
more than a lot of fellows who
were able to do their share but,
failed. Well, I got my clothes on at
last and returned to the barracks
and hit the hay, but did not go to
sleep directly as my thoughts were
too interested with the things that
might be going on in Perrysburg.
Yes, we all get homesick at times,
especially when you see the lucky
fellows going home by the thou
sands each day.
We had a wonderful Christmas
dinner and we sure did it justice ;
for dinner wo had roasjgeese;
dressing, mashed potatoes,( peas,
cullaflower pumpkin pie, Granges
and candy. The regimental orches
tra, played popular pieces through
out the meal. It, rained and sleeted
all day as usual, but we are used
to that now.
I can hardly tell you how I ap
preciate these socks as they sure
are'the necessary article with us at

present, as next month is the real
I cold month of the year I sure
hope that you are in the best of
health and happy. Give my best
to all in the old town and tell them
that I will be home before long and
in the best of health.
Your sincere friend,
Co'. B, 61st Ry. Trans. Corps, Am.
Exp. Forces, Rennes, France.
Jan. 19, 1919.
After reading the letters in
your paper from the boys over
here and there, I decided to try
my luck. After spending two
months in No Man's Land be
tween Verdun and Etain, build
ing communication lines across
the devastated countries, we
moved to civilization once more
and are now rebuilding a German
line towards Berlin. Have got
as far as Diedenhafen (Thain
ville.) Don't know if I will get
any further, as we hear a rumor
we're to be relieved soon and
start home, but one can never be
lieve what he hears in the army.
Here's hoping it is true.
These German towns and cities
are clean, the farms look fine and
construction work is up-to-date".
At the city of Hayange there
are several large steel mills, also
iron ore and coal mines. The
people are mostly German and
think a good deal of the Ameri
cans. I have a nice German girl
here ; her father runs a cafe. (I
get my beer free). We are
quartered in a very large stone
house with gas and electric
lights, steam heat, water, and
have nice beds with real mat
tresses, all comforts of home
even moving pictures. Believe
me, these Germans like their
kraut: there is a big kraut fac
tory near by, and acres of cab
bage, which is still growing, and
people are seen gathering it ev
ery day. We can get all the
kraut we can eat, three times a
day, also plenty of beans. Can't
complain much about ourfmess
as we fare pretty good. For
breakfast we get round rubber
dirks called flap-jacks and a little
New Orleans sorghum to make
them slip down and a little trans
mission grease mixed with gaso
line, which is called coffee, for a
rench. Otherwise everything
tastes almost like mother makes.
Got a chance to see the boys
from home who are with Col.
Greenhalgh. I was glad to meet
them seemed almost like being
home. I think they will be home
soon, from what they say.
I am as Ever,
CORP.FLOYD D. REDMAN,

Edmund Schuster, with the
135th F. A. Band, in a letter to
Charles Witzler, says :
Still resting on our "arms."
Band plays reveille, a concert and
retreat daily. I surely hope we re
cive orders soon affecting our re
turn. Blive me, this inactivity is
getting on the nerves, but we will
be home Soon, so I believe we caii
stand it until then.'
A bunch of Jerries are working
on the railroad near here, so my
spare time usually finds me over
there picking up souvenirs or get
ting information. They will give
most anything for tobacco, so you
can bet that I get all the trinkets
the Boche has before I give, him

boys in a hard fought contest in a
small, cold building in Rudolph.
Rudolph played hard and fast,
the result of which they held the
lead at the end of the first half.
In the second half P. H. S. took
a different view of the situation
and downed the enemy to the tune
of 22 to 15. Capt. Thornton, Bal
lantyne and Sheldric scored for
P. H. S. girls, handicapped to a
great extent by the absence of
several players, were defeated.
The girls were game through and
put up a good fight. The score at
the end of the game was 35 to 12
in favor of Rudolph. Wilma Wag
goner and Eleanor Lownsbury
scored six points each.
Bowling Green Reserves play
