The work | of exhuming the bodies of the I American soldiers who died as prisoners of war in Germany has developed such difficulties that some uncertainty attaches to the identity of the few which have been unearthed from among the unnamed German and other dead In the cemeteries near the old prison camps. j Many of the graves were un- i mdrked and the names of the men 1 buried, in some places were un- I known, so that much guesswork entered into the task of the American graves registration service, in charge of two American Army officers, which has superintended the operations. "The bodies exhumed comprise what are thought to he the remains of American soldiers who died in Germany," said a member of the registration service. "We have shipped fifteen from Leipzig to Antwerp for transportation to America.
