Three years. They paid a price for freedom; they gave the nweetest year of their young lives to achieve what was found impossible by the allied power of Europe. At Chateau Thier ry they proved their mettle and worth by vanquishing the soldiers formerly referred to as the pride of Germany. They carried on to Sedan and the final hour. They assisted in the reconstruc tion of France and Belgium. They were found to be so trustworthy that they were allowed to assist in the guarding of the Rhincland. Great pots of printers' ink will be spread about the heroic sacrifices made by "our boys" today in the pa per of the land It looks good to the average citizen who fcno.vs not hint; about what a wonderful time the boy had over there. They will probably stand along the side lines this after noon cheering their favorite teams to victory at some football game. Armistice day! What a name, what an assortment of meanings it will hold for the human family. Some will see in it a solemnity equal to Decora tion day and July 4. Olhers will looV on it only as another holiday to cel ebrate with their favorite brand of "moonshine." Then, again, there will he some particularly little fray haired mothers who will slip off into a room and take from underneath everything else a little package that might contain a pair of little shoes, a else wno can deliver the goods?
