PxVGE ELEVEX BRAVERY IN llCTIOi I 15 L FDRMEHPHD I Miss Stimson is Chief of A. E. F. Staff of Nurses m One of the Americans who became a 1ito on the battlefields of France is Henry Bash, who is well kndwn in Phoenix, lie spent several years hr'i during which time his head quarters were the Arizona club. He became a- lieutenant In the aerial ser vice. He was a classmate at Ann Ar hnr, Michigan, of Kben Lane of Phoe nix, who became a lieutenant in the army soon after war was 'declared. V.nth of these men are well known in I'hoenix. Therefore, the following ar ticle that appeared in the Press of Huntington. Indiana, will be of inter est to Mr. Hash's I'hoenix friends: LIEUT. HENRY BASH WOUNDED FIVE TIMES: SAFE IN HOSPI TAL; MACHINE FALLS IN FLAMES "Huntington county's contribution to the list of heroes of the great world war was officially confirmed last even Ins when Mr. and Mrs. C. K. Bash re ceived the first detailed information concerning the location of their son, Lieut. Henry E. Hash, who was re ported missing in action in a letter irom a friend on November 2S. Of ficial notice was received on the 27th in which it was stated he was in a ierman prison camp. The "telegram received by the Hash family last niffht lollows and. conveys 'the idea that T.ieut. Hash participated in a. fierce struggle while assigned investigation work. "The message received from the war department? reads: '"Your son. Lieut. Henry Edwin Nash reported found at Longwy in hospital, five machine guiv bullets in left leg, both bins, riaht ch- lnnl rie-h forearm. Machine brout,'nt down in! flames. Despite serious wounds he is ! very cheerful and should, recover. Hos pital now in charge of Americans. I "'HARRIS, Adjutant General.' I In Active Service "Lieut. Bash is probably the only i aviator in active service in France from j Huntington county and th's dis tinguished action will rank him among 'he daring airmen of the 1'nitrd States in the war. j "Although the telegram details the extent of Lieut. Hash's serious wounds, it. is felt there are still very optimistic Pots in the situation, for he is now I in tne care of America ns. and is him svlf in a cheerful and hopeful attitude. "It is probable that Hash was wounded and. brought down in the burning plane on October for this is the date specified in a letter from Lieut. James E. Ainslie. a friend ol ; Hash's when he stated the latter was i chosen by the colonel to go on a spe cial mission. This special army com mand work which the aviators were doing was, Ainslie explained, a verifi cation of points on the front lines, lo cation of possible counter attacks and 1 new enemy works. "He also stated that in order to get this information it was necessary to fly at a very low altitude, from 150 to Sim) feet, thus endangering them to the; fire of machine guns from the ground. This accounts for the seriousness of Lieut. Bash's wounds, which were' probably received from a ground, ma- i chine gun. ; Location of Longwy "The town of I-ongwy whore it Is ' stated Lieut. Hash is l-icntcd. unit i which yas probably the scene of his' battle, is a French ,tfO n. ilun in tne! hiifds of the inririans' ami is about j midway between Metz and Sedan,; westward only a f.-w miles Irom Lux- i mburg. This confirms the opinion of i Lieut Ainslie that I'.a:h aril his pilot! flying due east, were cot:L't:sed in their; locations as they were forced u fly at j such a low altitude and entered on j German territory. I "This report also brings to liuht the mention of an aviator, Arthur DimWn of the fist Aero squadron who was left behind by the. Germans on Octo. ber 21, and officially addressed Hunt ingdon. Ind. The report confirms in every detail, excepting the name with the story of Lieut. Hash, and it is be lieved there was a confusion of names, is there is no knowledge of a Dindeen in this county. "The Hash family is awaiting further detaJled information concerning their son's condition, and the telegram gives them hope that there will be a com-, plete recovery. The fact that it ha.s been six. weeks since he was injured, seems to point to tin! fact that he is on the road to recovery. Remembered As Hero "Lieut Henry Bash will be remem bered in time to come as one of the foremost heroes of the nation's fight ers, as one of the bravest men in ac tion from Huntington county, and the example of the sacrifices endured by the men of our country for the cause of liberty and right" o Tt makes no difference what your 'wants may be you can have them'sup jdied by using and reading The Repub lican Classified pages Arizona's Lead imr Advertising Medium.

A large number of these troops have passed through the city, while considerable forces will remain here temporarily.- The people of Coblenz got their first glimpse of American airplanes today, several of the machines flying over the Rhine toward the bridgehead boundary and then returning. The officers and clerks of the third army arrived here this morning, fol lowed by trucks loaded with equipment and officers' supplies. The largest .hotel in Coblenz, over looking the Rhine and the two bridges, where most of the troops cross the river, has been taken over as quarters for third army officers. The head quarters of the third army are estab lished in a government building ad joining the hotel. By noon the third army was in com munication with the back areas by telephone, telegraph and wireless. Church Goers Watch During Sunday various detachments of infantry and artillery passed through Coblenz on their way to join the divisions east or the Rhine. Church goers viewed the marching troops with much. Interest. Late in the afternoon the third division, which had been along the Rhine south of Coblenz, marched through the city headed by a band, each musician mounted on a gray horse. The third division crossed the Moselle north of Coblenz, where it has taken up a posi tion along the Rhine in support of the troops within the bridgehead. All the larger hotels here have been taken over by the Americans for bil leting purposes, as well as many of the public buildings, which are being used as offices. German officers, who had remained in the city to turn over war material to the Americans, soon completed their task and proceeded across the Rhine in automobiles, flying white flags, to join the German armies beyond the bridgehead lines. Weeks of Occupation Throughout the sector held by the Americans, the men have settled down to what may be weeks of occu pation. Ems and Xassau are two im portant towns which have fallen to the French who were sent into the American sector, but Xeuwied, a big industrial center, and all the other towns in the northern half of the sec tor are held by the Americans. The Americans have followed the policy which characterized their first days of occupation. They have pro mulgated no drastic rules to govern civil life and in every way have en deavored to make the inhabitants feel that they will not be molested so long as they do not interfere with the mili tary duties. On this first Sunday the results of this policy were shown. While the people of Coblenz still are somewhat resentful in their attitude, the resi dents of the smaller towns evinced none of this hostility. Dressed in their Sunday clothes, the Germans attended church service and appeared pleased te find among the congregations.- in some of the places, a few of the en listed men. In the afternoon the children in the villages made love frankly to any of the soldiers who would permit it, clambered over the trucks and de manded their turn to snuggle into the seats on the guns in the artillery parks. And they were tinreproved by their parents, who smiled their tol erance.

Bands Attract Crowds Wherever bands were in action, the people crowded the street corners to listen to the music, instead of hurry ing to their homes, a situation that did not exist when the invasion of German territory was begun two weeks ago. Applications for leaves of absence are already largely on the increase, but it is notable that the men are not ask ing for permission to visit distant points, but merely to make excursions into the picturesques Rhine regions, where almost every valley is guarded by the ruins of a medieval castle. Occupy Royal Castle , WITH THE AMERICAN ARMY OF OCCUPATION, Monday, Dec. 16. (By the Associated Press) The ' royal castle in Coblenz, known as one of the former emperor's summer palaces, now is under guard by American troops. The palace stands on the banks of the Rhine, a stone's throw from the business center of Coblenz. The palace is surrounded by "royal gardens" and contains many articles of historic interest, in addition to sil verware and other belongings of Wil liam I, who once occupied the building. Since the arrival of the Americans there have been several attempts to remove some of the valuables in the palace. Therefore, it was decided that the guard should be placed around the house as a precaution against the fur niture and other things inside being disturbed. -The palace was built by Prince Clemens Wcnzeslau. The building was started in the year 1778 and was finished eight years later.- It was re modeled in 1S45. The royal barracks within the pal ace gardens is occupied by American troops, but thus far the Americans have not entered the palace itself. o It makes no difference what your wants may be you can have them sup plied by using and reading The Repub lican Classified pages Arizona's Lead ing Advertising Medium.
