Herman, of 635 Sixth street northeast, now In i France, In & letter to J. A. Esklns. I 111 C street southeast, tells of the j test of steel through which Persh ing- heroes have passed on the j fields of France. j "Oar forefathers of revloutionary and civil war fame can look down ; with pride upon the youth of ! America battling- In France." he writes. "They are more than up holding our valorous traditions. I cannot say too much for them. 1 only wish those at home could see them, quiet and determined. And t after the battle coming: out of , something worse than hell, you'll j see them smiling-, though their hair . is matted, their eyes are red. and me mua is caxea on tneir laces and clothing-." He states that they can get plenty of smokes over there, but that maga zines and other reading- matter Is what they lack. Continuing- he says: "Since I last wrote. I have been through lots of experiences. The last letter I wrote In the S. O. S. zone, or rear, but since then I've been in the zone of advance. "Although this affair Is a horror from beginning to end, I've never for a single moment regretted that I ask ed to be sent across. "It's a mighty big thing-. Men come to know things that they never knew before. They come to know the big ness of a man's soul. They learn what real sacrifice means, and that death, in a Just and righteous cause. Is a most glorious death. They die a man's death and facing the enemy. "ToU have been reading for the last two weeks of our wonderful offensive, and how we gave the Germans their second defeat on the Marne. It was a great fight, and they were driven pell-mell across the country. It wasn't any voluntary retreat. I tell you. They were In a mighty big hurry to get out. We captured ton- end tons of ammunition and supplies. and thousands of prisoners.

The submarine which torpedoed the British troopship Persic, with Ameri cans aboard, was evidently destroyed by the transport convoy. The Navy Department is reticent on the subject today, especially as Great Britain has asked that news of the torpedoing be issued first from London. Secretary Daniels, according to the committee on public Informa tion members, had not been advised by his officers concerning the esse up to the time that press inquiries reached him yesterday, though It is known that the Government had the Information previously. The Persic was beached, and will be salvaged easily. r TkU la war af equipment Men are easenttal bat without equipment tbey are uaeless.
