flgt. Harold W. Taylor of the head­
quarters company of the :ti.°.tli on«i
jieersi tells an interesting story of the
late days of the war.
The Tribune is indebted to John C.
Taylor ofvSteele for the following let­
ter from it is son, who was an emplove
of the i-'irst National bank of Ris
nia"ck when he enlisted in the ."'.K'.th
eng'neers at Camp Dodge, in which
regiment his brother. Allen T. Taylor,
was corporal in the headquarters com­
pany. The 352nd infantry mentioned
in the letter is the regiment with
which Major George H.
RUSK.
vice
president of the Bismarck hank, is sta­
tioned.

pear Folks:
Have started1 many letters to you
lately hut don't think have sent one

crtie if I only get one sheet, done.
suppose that, you know that most of
the censorship has been taken off and
so will try and give you a little of
our trip since landing in France. We
are the .113th engineers. We started
on Friday, were 13 days on the water.
there were 13 ships in our convoy and
there were 313.000 troops sent over in
the month that we came in, so to start
with all luck was against us. but we
are still nearly all here and still "rar­
ing to go." but this time to the states.
so don't be afraid to seat 13 at the
table or anything else after this. We
left Southampton at 1 p. m„ crossed the movement
channel in a little T'nited States boat
that sure was built for speed. The
channel was fairly rough, hut the
"Yale," which boat it was, came over
without much of any protection, it be­
ing far too fast for any submarine.
"We rolled out the next morning, or
rather, crawled out. from under the
benches, etc.. in LeHarve. France, and
were marched up to what is known as
a rest camp on top of a high hill and
stayed there one day. then we were
loaded on half-grown box cars and
started out. Two days later we land­
ed in a beautiful little city in south
central France, where we were used
like kings, and spent about three pleas­
ant weeks. This place is Les T,a umes.
in Alecia, and when we pulled
into
town the 3T2nd infantry hand met us,
and I don't think that music ever
sounded so good to any one as that
music d'd to us, as they were the first
of our 88th division that we had been
able to find no to that time. It isi
Bill Lund's outfit.
From there we went to TTerriconrt,
Via box cars, and marched from there
throncrh Relfort to the front. On the
last night of the trip to the front we
made 18 miles with battle packs, rifles.
pas masks, helmets, ammunition, etc..
In six hoars. We stayed in French
billets covered with steel sheeting, and
the first morning, long before we were
ready to get up, they started in and
woke ns up with shrapnel pounding
on the roof and we were a sore but a
very Interested bunch. We were di­
rectly. between Germany and Relfort

the wife of Representative Medill Mc­
Cormick, senator-elect from Illinois,
and the daughter of the late Mark
Hanna of Ohio.
Mrs. McCormick is said to have in­
herited a fpinntit.v of political acumen
from her father, who for many years
was chairman of the republican nation­
al committee.
"My father believed women should
lake an active part in the affairs of
the world ami insisted that I become
assistant in his office," she said. "I
worked early and hue during the cam­
paigns, 'punching the (.'lock' with con­
sistent regularity.
"I know that with that fern in the
window, democratic women will say
that these headquarters look like an
undertaking establishment. Rut wom­
en simply must, have flowers or plants
about." said Mrs. McCormick.
"The executive committee was ap­
pointed to serve with the republican
national committee. Women are now
going to take part in forming the poli­
cies of the republican party. We tire
going to help to select the representa­
tives of the party instead of merely
being asked to aid in the campaign of
those already selected."
others are in pretty good repair, but

we arc in now was left in a big hurry,
so is in good shape. One of-the fel­

with the Metz line and we are all
enjoying pretty fussy lights now.
Some of the fortifications around
here, especially toward Metz, sure are
wonderful, and in Fritz' hurry home
to the fatherland to see his father, he
left a nice sample of nearly everything
that is known to (he artillery world.

but if I can't will try and carry it

We made i!7 miles one day when we
were coming into this section and on
such hikes as that every ounce counts,
and a Dutch helmet is some heavy. I
also have some bucks in tlie First Na­
tional of Bismarck and want hiui to
find out. how much it is and draw it

so if they blow in without us. don't
worry. I think they will beat us home
by quite a while.

BIG RAILWAY
BROTHERHOOD
NOT IN PARTY
Cleveland, O., Jan. *2.—The leaders
of the three big railroad brotherhoods
declare thoy have not been consulted
concerning affiliation with "The Inde­
pendent Labor party," which was or­
ganized recently in Chicago by the
feredation or'labor of that city. It
was reported that the heads of the
brotherhoods here would be asked to
join the movement to organize trades
unions of the country for the 1920
presidential campaign.
William G. Lee, president of the
Drotherhood of Railroad Trainmen,
said he had not been consulted about
the project and besides, he explain­
ed, he had no authority to frame po­
litical policies for the brotherhood.
"We have men of all political
faiths in our organization, which is
non-partisan," said Mr. Lee. "The
question of affiliating with any such
organization as the proposed labor
party would have to be decided at the
triennial convention."
Wardren S. Stone, grand chief of
t'ae Brotherhood of Locomotive Engi­
neers and Timothy Shea, acting pres­
ident of the Brotherhood of Firemen
and Enginemen, also said they had
not been consulted about the new
