I saw many of these deportees
from Lille in the fields about Charle

tributaries beautiful fields of the
Ardennes made ugly by German ef
ficiency." Bending women and girls

group with its armed slave driver in
the field gray uniform that to
bring kultur to all the world. There
were other groups, without slave
drivers, in the Ardennes fields.
These were the native women and
old men and children of the region
working in the little potato plots
assigned to them out of their own
fields. These little patches they were
allowed to work on shares, half of
the crop to help keep them from
starvation, half to help keep alive
and strong the field gray apostles of
civilization who were killing their
absent husbands and elder sons in
the trench lines a score or two of
miles farther west and south.—

There is an urgent demand for
American prisoners of war on parts
of the west front, notably the Toul
sector, where German commanders
have offered a reward of 400 marks
to the boche who brings in the first
Yank, as has been learned through
a captured order. Another inter
cepted mandate threatens to place
an entire regiment on patrol duty
unless immediate results are forth
Just why it should be deemed nec
essary to resort to such extraordin

forts on this line in other sectors
were a bit disappointing to tlie
Huns, it was inferred, tor an illus
trious member of the Prussian war
party, in a recent published inter
view," averred that the average
American soldier didn't know what
he was fighting for: and quoted one
doughboy as saying the war is over
Alsace, and that Alsace is a big lake.
