What Pershing's Fifty Think
Of Kaiser Bill
Here are some of the high lights of the speeches which Persh
ing's Fifty made before a tremendous audience at the Liberty Hut
last night:
"If you'll send over airplanes to get the Boches out of the
trenches, jour boys will do the rest. We'll lick them in 4Q dnj3."
Color Sergt. John J. HefTernan, Washington man.
"I'm. glad, I was in the gun crow that fired America's first shot
in this war. We're- fighting for the liberty of the whole human
race BUT we don't include the Boches in that category!" Corp.
O. D. Varilla.
"Our boys, with only six months' training, have stood toe to too
with the Kaiser's best the Uhlans, the Prussian Guards, the best
trained men in the German army and we gave them hell in a good,
old-fashiend Yankee manner." Sergt. E. B. Creed.
"Wakaup; America; realize that we're in-the-warto-the finish!"
Private Morrow.
"I'm certain that thirty-five Americans can lick any seventy-five
Bpches. The Germans are the yellowest dogs on earth." Corporal
Cosgrove.
