"The French are good soldiers, and I they will hold the line. The boche will never get to Paris." This is the belief of Herbert C. Graves, who wrote to his.mother, Mrs. HerbertC. Graves, 324 Eleventh street southeast, while under fire during . German attack. Graves formerly was a second lieu tenant of cadets at Eastern High School, but enlisted when war was declared. He Is now "somewhere In France" doing his bit as a cook In an ambulance unit. "This war is a funny war," Je writes. "Sometimes It is men, guns, cavalry, all moving for twenty-four hours on the straight, and then again it is peace and quiet for days. "At night one can easily see the flashes of the star shells. They il luminate the ground in much the same way as a lighthouse flashes rays of light on the water. "I like to watch the battles between the German planes and our anti-aircraft guns. The planes look like tiny specks, and we know at the battle by seeing small clouds of white smoke in the air, as the bursting shells ex plode directly over us and we duck for shelter, for, as we used to say. 'What goes up must come down.' And some times we see black clouds of smoke farther away. Then we know the German anti-aircraft guns are at work. "Today about fifteen German planes were seen at one time and expected an attack, but we later found out that they were only up for observa tion. "There are a lot of wonderful eights oyer hers, and I, will always remem ber that I was a member of the A. E. F." Fi i SAYS SET. GERMER "America Is In this war to win and everything that you folks at home do Is one big help to the boys at the front," writes Sergt. John D. Germer. a crew captain of aviation in France, to his sister, Mrs. A. G. Henny, of 209 Fifth street southea.L Germer enlisted February 0 and was sent to Camp Sevier, Greenville, N. C. where he remained until May 21, when he sailed for France. He cays: "The Red Cross gave the boys a donation of tobacco; came in very nice, too. Some real American smokes. I have not met anyone I knew In the States, but the fellows I have been with In the aviation serv ice the past eight months arc such a fine bunch of fellows it seems as if I had known them from boyhood; a fine lot of fellows, all of them. "I don't believe I v. Ill care much for the city life any more. I have been outside Just long enough to want plenty of room and fr"sh air. I am having a good time and never felt better in my life. I would not mind spending thp winter over hcr Just as long as I hear from home. I don't want to return until It's all over on this side." 2 U. S. FLYERS KILLED Dale V. Campbell, U. S. N., of Port land, Ore., and Letter A Barnctt, U. S. N.. of ML. Pleasant, Tenn., were killed in a seaplane accident in France August 22. John I McArgle, V S. N. it. T.. of Willmettc. 111., died August 22 from a compound fracture of the skull, the announcement stated. up k nm.iu win NOMrunmflfHK WRITE 0 I HOME DLKSHELP Editorial "Well, I see ray w"k is non essential, and I am a non-producer," said a, man to us, "and I must go to work." t He is wrong. He has the wrong viewpoint Nobody ever did or ever will say that ANY occupation is USELESS in peace times unless it be the mak ing of things with which to kill our fellow beings. But, just now the only thing of importance is the winning of the war. And, anything that does not have to do with the winning of the war is not an essential occupation. Get that straight in your mind. Keep before yon the fact that labor classifications made NOW have nothing to do with the usefulnes of your work un der normal times. When orders come from head quarters, let us just hitch our belts a little tighter, grin, and do the things we are told to do, so this war may be over the sooner. m A Leading Designer Sends Us 75 Sample Hats to Sell at $7.50 .Sl9" Hats that would have ' : .. i o "?$ ing u ed in navy 1 M V 4 v. 1. w.
