War is precisely what General Sherman said it was, but peace is worse, ac cording to .Private William Fogel, Co. B, 107 th Machine Gun Battalion.! Fogel has a bride in France, but government "red tape" keeps her there, he says. In a northern town in France, Fogel met the one girl for him. In his "pigeor/* French he carried on a courtship. The fair daughter of that sunny country was receptive and when, he popped the eternal question, he was accepted. The wed ding followed in due course of time and Fogel was the happiest little doughboy with three service and a wound stripe in France. When he left for the good old U. S. A., Fogel says, his bride ex pected to come ten days later. How- she was refused the right to come to America. When she tried to get a passport, government regu lations required that the young wo man prove beyond doubt that she had some one to support her in America. She asserted that she had "a big strong husband in America." But she had nothing to prove it. Her doughboy husband unwittingly carried the marriage certificate along with him. This is the orrly word he could get from her. Other ca bles have not found the bride. In the meantime, Fogel Is using every, effort at his command to manipu-l late the lever that will pull down the bars of red tape, or at least make an opening wide enough for his bride to slip through.
