Couldn't Imagine what kind of money 1 was getting when the change was being dished out but soon Identified It. You sec we use even' sort of money over here French, Belgian, Italian, Spanish, and of course, up here German exclusively. That makes me a grand total of IM real money that I now have In my money belt, having managed to hang onto dollar bill as a sort of souvenir -Hr rest for tired eyes when I should become too tired of looking at tho fanciful paper that serves as money over here. Again boarding the train, we pulled for St. Nazalre, following the coast nrctty closely from Brest. The sched ule became a little mixed up and we arrived there late, but not too late to "do" all the American places, an nex some more literature, and still have an hour or so to do as wc pleat ed. St. Nazulrc Is not ns nice u place as Brest or Bordeaux, cither--the people who live there arc not of such n good class and most of tho "scum" of the ocean gathers there from time to time, so It has a bail name even among the French. Still It was Interesting, nnd a little side excursion to n resort on the coast about ten miles from Nnialre was a welcome diversion. The buy was beautiful, with u coast somewhat sim ilar to the New England coust. high and rocky and the waves came up und broke with u mighty dusii.

There were the ordnance depots, and all sorts of ordnance American, French, German, etc., was gathered there. Now I fear that I am getting a tit tle bit lost In the maze for It seem that we also visited Glevres that day, and I think It was you have my notes" so I can t determine for cer tain. At any rate we visited It about that time the huge camp that I men tioned in a letter home a long time ago. It Is seven miles one way and from three to four and five another. You can imagine it takes a sizeable force to man the place, and something like 66,000 soldiers are employed there. It is the ration storehouse, or food storehouse and a huge refriger ating plant also Is located there. Again we used a "box car special flat car, rather" to tour the place, the tour being confined mainly to rides .up and down the several nun- I red miles of railroad tracks in the ramp and a hasty dip into the meat reeling piam. From there wc went to Is-sur-TItle. one of the big reeuiating stations for the A. E. F. There thcy.nlso have miles of trucks and there trains were sent from Glovrcs to bo shunted on up tu the front and to the various rallheails held by the Americans. There alsu Is a huge cam n. but to my way of thinking It Is a dreary sort of place, out on a flat, with no town of any size near, so there elaborate amusement facilities weie provided ny me various uellnrc organisation. mere also were the central bakeries for the A. E. I'., where l.COO.000 lbs. uf bread could lie baked and shipped out each day. Wc were guests nt a peciui theatrical perrurmunce the vening wc were there, and saw the first real girls across the footlights that we hud seen on any stugo of the A. I-:. Fm (Put is is not A. E. P.. you know). Needless tu suv thev made one giand hit, and were nully very goixi, unc pour lone mun with an the uggiegutlon of entertainers wasn't al lowed to deliver his sood at n'.l. He was how In! down and the girls had to give the entertainment. At Is-sur- lille there n so is n "rest camir where they ever got iho name "rest cumin' for some uf these wuvsidc stutions is past human comprehension, Yet at that place It Is nut a bad camp ut all. There leave men are "regu latorthat is, distributed to the leave areus that urn open, and tho ents arc fine, the best at any camp in r runce. Chuuniont. the caiiltal of the A. . P.. then attracted us fur two duvs. Besides giving our minds 11 treat with well iirejiureil lectures nnd talks on the 1), h. in the war. wc could also treat our bodies to 11 hath ns in travel nir uround the wuv we had been doing huthlng time Jvns rather limited. And wldie we had time to bathe ut several places where we had stopped und some of us did, tho i renrli public buth house is not con- lucted on the plan of those in Amer ica they move slower thun we nrc ucctistomed tu doing, and in other wuys no not come up to our standard Chaumont is not much of a town. us tuwns gu, yet it is u qunlnt old iace, lamous tor Its castin 01 the old Duke dc Clmmnaltrn. etc.. und a verv wonderful railiuud viaduct which is said tu be ono of tho largest in Eu rope. 11 is n marvel 01 the stuns muson's nit. and carries trains out over 11 most bcuutlful vulley. The town is iuuo Ameiiran in many ways nr course, yet I was surprised to see how little attention was paid to living iiuarters ui the men stutiuned there. They were comfortably housed, uf course, hut had only dirt flouis, und, tney sain, lime ur nt.

In fact, tho mure I miu uf how other soldiers Nlvcd the, better satisfied I was with my own Ivm condition. Here wc lire uuaiteied better nml have everything better tiuin tiie oil leers nail with us ft LlmuKcs. So ended tho tour of the Services uf Supply. Much refreshed, we stalled lor me name iront, making the rirsi stop nt Chateau Thierry. There 11 convoy of ,16 Cadillac Eiirhls waited tho party and wc drove over the whole of tho buttlcfield made famous by th" Americans. Vuux, Bclleau Wood, Flsmes. etc.. etc.. winding tin that eve ning at Solssnns. where the train wus waiting us. The speedometers showed wo had covered !-'. miles that day, Tho roads were wonderful In many places that is about nil of the wink that has been done. Tho battlefields uro practically as they wero left whin tnc Armistico was signed. And sou venir hunting is rather a dangeiuui business. You're liablo to get ono tliut will break your anutomy up into souvenirs lur inter comers. Tho battles around there must have been furious. Ilelleau Woud is turn and shattcicd, and tho ground full of holes, UlKCUt'ilcil clothing still lies hero and there, caught In tho shutter ed trees, whllo walking is dono only with great difficulty. VVhnt It must havo been during the battlo Is past Imugiiiutlon, ns it taxed sumo 01 us "soft" fellows even to walk over the pluce. Members of tho grave regis tration service wero hard at woik in trio American cemetery there, where must of tho marines who fell in that fight w III bo buried. Towns were laid In ruins, yet when one thinks of tho hell that raged thereabouts less than one year ago, ono marvels that even ono stone Is left upon another. So ssons was slow ly emerging from its stupor nnd work ui repair was progressing at a rupn rate, come 01 tne places louked ut, terly boneless however, vet the in habitants, those who wero left and had been ablo to find their way buck "home" were happy Just to be there. The spirit of the French people is a never falling source of wonder to me How thev fought, nnd how they died And how they can still smile it s an past me 1 From Solssons we made the jump to Toul, passing through much ruined country and also fflimnsing the Rhelm City and Cathedral where the Hun committed one of his darkest crimes. We all wanted tu get out and walk up to the cathedral, but our schedule would not allow the stop. Still we can say that we have "seen tne watheiirai." At Tout wn l iln't h.ivn our (Tail I- lacs, had motor busses, however; nine or ten passenger affairs, that served iuite as well, and wc started on a tour of the St. Mlhlel sector. Tho first place we visited was Schryinre I can't spell the fool word, but it s pro nounced "&ay chu bray, hitting tho "chu" rather lightly. That's where the Americans made their first hit, and there are evidences of hot fight ing about the place. The village lies in a valley right below Mont Sec. which was held by the Germans, That is, the village did lie in the valley. There's scarcely aaythlng left of it, and (he total population numbers only two ur three forlorn old women, sev eral dogs and some S. 0. L. Ameri cans who arc engaged in various ac tivities near there, then to Mont Sec, where wc saw the German dug outs, etc., and the wfeck of several other towns. This Mont Sec Is some mountain, too, nnd give's a command ing view of the whole territory for miies about. I am afraid I will get "lost" and give sume inaccurate information from this noint if I try tu truce our limrneylngs sten by sten from here, nuiiire 11 tu say that wc made lij miles by bus tliut day nnd caught up with our train nt Commercy that night, That night wc went to Clci munt on Argonne, where our Moved Ci.illllacs were waiting and we started nn three days' tour of the Meusc-Ar- gimue 1'iirest. I he train trailed alum; us pent it cuuid, meeting us une night ut Dun sur Meuse, where wc slept und ut Sedan where wc spent the sec ond night, then at Verdun where wc hitardc '. it the third night for the trip iniD iierniany. r?iniciliinglikc three hundred miles wn- traveled by auto in tho Argnnne And there nnd nt Verdun we suw war in its rem aspect. I rould not des mho the turn country If I tried, for niii fan to give any ndenuate pie tun' of th desolation that wo en countered tn some places. Wc visited such placvs ns Montfaucon, Stenny, liuruncy. itrnnil rre. llenumnnt. .i dan, Dun, mentioned nliove, Vnipinis, which Is no more1 being simply a hole in 11 hill which Is now two hills In place of one, nnd many, many other places leading me to the realization that this wus some war and that man), many things hud happened In it while I wus too busy in another Place tu keen mi with the times, in rldentallv we saw many places mat famuut in the Frnnco-Pnisslnn War of l.s.ll, i.nd some uf us while lying ut !eilan, made a little "unuuthoiized trip" five miles or so over the borders ur llelgiuin, so wc cuuld suy wc hud been there. At mun of these places we crossed and ivcrossed the famous Hindenburg line, uml one mujor In the party kept worrying over the "money ho w:..i liming" In the miles and miles, yes hundreds uf miles, of linrhed wire entanglements that covcieil the land scape us fur ns the eye could reach. It was left as It was, being broken only where the road builders had round It necessary to brrak It. And the winds carried the scent of death, sometimes nearly overpowering. It will be many and many u day before much of that country can lie mutlo habitable again. Wc ulso dinned Into retreats of tho Germans quite wonderful undei uround places. Muny of the ruads und tuwns still were coveied with tho shreils of the camouflage that came to be such un urt in this war. And thousands of German prisoners were puttering about here mid there trying to put Into pluro the havoc that they had wrought. It seemed 11 mutter of simple justice that they should be so emnloveil. .Sedan Is mure Gcinuin than French, duo to the four veais occununcy by 1110 ticrmuns, ami even suiise or the trench suli lers in reply tu uuestiuns would Miy "Ju, Ju," instead uf tho customury "(Jul, Oul," ur "SI, SI." Sedan Is not a nice "French" city nt all. In some of the towns In the ruined area, wc noted that little damage hud been done, und found that they hnd been "pleasure resurts" for tho Gor man soldiers, iiiuny 01 mo nouses still wore the German letteiing uf tho sort of entertainment that could bo fuund within. Ono town especially struck us. hvcry House had been civ en sume girl's nnmc it was not a lurgo tuwn, only two or inrec streets, and we-ilrovu down two of them. Here wn "Bertha's llaus," "Minnie's Hnus," Gretel's Hnus," etc.. etc. It was not hard to Imuc no the enter talnment that was provided there. Wc hud sumo dlscusslun ns tu tho method of allotment, and finally decided that the commanding uilicer or the com nany nrobnbly sent so many men to "Bertha's llaus," etc. As to whether llortha and tiretol nnd Mlnnlo were French or German, frco to fol ow that modo of life or held In slavery, wo hud no way of telling. And from tho looks of tho women fulk ubout tho placo when wo went through there wo were certain that all of the Ber thas and Minnies und Gretuls had long been gone. Ims only gives you an insight nlo how things wero conduct. cd behind the (,'eimnn lines und that is why I dwelt at such length on this paragraph, Sedan was nractlcallv untouched by shell fire, the bridges, being tho heav iest sufferers, as that town was used aj a recreation spot tor tho wcrmam Many of tho inhabitants had been al lowed to remain thoro in peaco dur ing tho whole of the German occu pancy. My principal Impression of Verdun are miles and miles of shell racked and tortured ground, dotted with thousands of little wooden crosses, tho Tri-colors of Franco flying from the center pleco of each cross. Not an inch of that ground but what had been struck not once, but hundreds of times by shells, great and small. Where once stood noble forests, now all was desolate, tortured ground. Tortured ground is the best term I can find to describe it. And the area reaches for miles, and miles and miles, The city is situated In a basin, or flat region surrounded on all sides by hills, a river running through the cen ter of the town. That there Is any thing left of Verdun Is the biggest mar- to 1 or nil, witn me pussii.ie exception that the people of that city, still num bered among the living, arc able to come back and smile. Wo also visited the Citadel, a nulto wonderful under ground city. There arc 12 kilometers of tunnels under the ground, and at places they are 60 feet deep. Also there arc quarters for the offlceri, non-coms, men, etc., quarters for .10, 000. There are mess halls, chapels, bakeries, store rooms, theatres, etc., down there. Tho tunnels remind me very much of the Paris subways not quite so large, but tiled, electric light, cd, welt ventilated, dry anil a small narrow guage railroad trade through them for carrying supplies. My al ready great admiration for the Frenc'i people is only increased after seeing with "my own eyes" the sacrifices that they, mado about Verdun, You can read about them urtil you are black In the face, but their true extent can be realized only by seeing them. 1 note with pain and surprise and not u little sorrow that too many Americans aic nrone to look rather condescendingly upon the French. They say every other Frenchman wears a urotx de Guerre, while very rcw Americans wenr or can wear n D. S. C. True. But every French man deserves u Croix do Gueire If for nothing else thna the fact that he is still alive. That is a noteworthy fent tu have conic out of this war alive. And then, too, the French mode or thinking Is a thing that no Ameri cun ran or ever will be ul.le to under stand. We can't understand them, any mure than they can understand these "crazy Americans." I urn cer tain n Frenchman thinks Just ns much uf 11 Croix de Guerre und that th" .'inbleni means just us much to him us does the I). S. I . In description that can be written any way, so I will let it go at that. Yet in all the atupenduous under takings that we saw and Inspected and that were explained to us, two departments were shrouded in a mer ciful veil of silence. Tho less said about them the better or that was the impression I gained. They wero the mail service and the air service. By the air service I do not mean tha officers and men trained and ready to carry on tneir hazardous work, ina fault was higher up than that. We had the men. That was demonstrated at Coblens and had been demonstrated to me every day hero at Trier. Thesn American boys could fly until they actually put the birds to shame. As a matter ol ract 1 have seen crows como to earth and hide their heads In shama after trying to keep up with the American flyers, .hut, and here a the rub. all uf this wonderful flyint; was being done and is being done la machines turned over by the Germans. There should be a lot of explaining dono by somebody, before tho public is asked to swallow the pill of what wonueriui mings me American Air Service did In the war. They did won ders ns far ns they were, in borrowed machines the French and English lending us all of the paraphernalia for flying that they possibly could without endangering their own Interests, Wo saw boxes and piles uf boxes nnd crates, etc., etc., which we were told contained "nir service property" but were rushed by with no chance to query Into matters very deeply. The mall service was ignored ut terly and completely. With a purpose I iiiii sure, for that has been handled In n manner that never can bo ex plained nway, und just who Is to blame Is not known and probably nev er will be known, Sam Illy tho, I hi lleve, In a recent (to us, but probably long forgotten tu you,) issue of the Saturday Evening IVM, said tho "Government seemed to have a noil- The trouble with too many AmerM "v' ",n'u. .f,,r f!llIln l"n In tho cans. alde from their hnblt of form ing snap Judgment, is that they have seen only one or two little sectors of this country and they Judge It all by that section. It Is only by getting off und getting a bru.nl view of the situ ation that one ran come to a full re alization of what France Is. The world will never know huw much It owes to France or how much France has suffered. Here I hnve lieen telling ynu nil along that my "notes" were on the way home tu you, und they ore not at all. The pnstofflrc here refused to honor the order permitting me to send them home not refused exactly, but refused tu assure mo that they would reach their destination, That only adds one more grievance to my nl ready long list nguint the dratted Post Office system ur lack of sys tem, us you will. But so much for that here, as I mean to come back to it later. We then went into Germany. Of course, it wus nil old tu me, but I found much enjoyment in seeing how tho situation impressed the lellows rrom l-rnnc;, and especially those from General Headquarters. That wax Utter Hum a trip Into foreign climes. I could glory n little and swagger n bit. us 1 cusuaiiy urusneu u lew unending iicrinnns rrom my path, or when wo hopped u Mroet cur and rode scot free. or when wc did uny number of other things thut we as Americans are nc customed to doing In Germany. Yet the country was more dlstasteruily beautiful to me than ever. Here everything so painful y order v and painfully neat in comparison tu tho chaos through which we hud Just come 111 ! ranee, 11 increased my already lusty hnte fur the Germans, mid ( lunged for bombs with which to muss up 11 few of their places, and felt like throwing out some uf tho poor "starved" (7) creatures potteilng about their neat, ordetly yards, They ought not tn be allowed to havo 11 home. And us for being starved! Most of them have n regular series of chins, hugo bellies and waddle from side to side us they walk. There Is nothing new to tell ynu ubout Coilenz, except in thut placo of "ucuto food conditions" we hud the most ubundnnt feed thut every was set before 11 bunch of luimnns. It took un hour and u half to cat tho stuff, without u stup, uml when wo finally were released with a pound or two of Ice cream liberally sprinkled with strawberries, rverybody wus too full for utterance. We cuuld just luuk helplessly at each other. Cologne, on the Ithlne, then back to Cublcnz, meant the end of the trip for ino, und wc hnd u very inteieslng trip on the Ithlne. Another LIGHT lunch on board tho steamer and then three or four hours .to wonder about tho prize German city. Germans seem to think more of Culogno than they do uf Berlin, (but 1 still want to go to Merlin). There tho hatefully beauti ful cathedral through Its glory wo could sec tho wounded structure at lihclms and hundreds of other wound ed structures scattered throughout France. And wo marveled that the Germans still had the guts that's thu only sufficient word 1 can think of to presume to worship a God. Tho other beautiful buildings, und hear tho hatefully beautiful bells tho samo bells that rang out in triumph when tho I.usitnnla was sunk that's what German bells, and they have multitudes uf them always remind me of. Theso samo bells that peal so beautifully at ull hours of tho day and night now, are the same bells that pealed triumphantly ut news of the sinking of tho Lusltanin. And thero nt Huuptbahnhof was our well trained little train waiting to take us back to Coblcnz, and it dropped mo off there. So ended tho most won derful trip I ever had or ever expect to have, Of course, I had to come back to Trier, and that deed was accomplished the next day. The ono impression to be gained from the trip was that of the atu penduous undertaking of Uncle Sam, and of his stupendous success in accomplishing that deed. Also to gUe a better perspective to the work oc comnllbhcd by our Alllefl. British as well as French. It is too big to at tempt to describe sad that's the, best mutters that came close to the sol dier." He wus spooking of the mall service nnd of the pay machinery-- some soldiers still around here haven t Ih'oii paid for months and months and months, and )ou know tliut Is n vital mutter that sticks In a fellow's craw. lie wus promised his pity, so mucit per month, and he bus to pay his bllU to the government, promptly, usually uheud of time, etc., etc., yet that samu government lets mm go hang fur hU pay. Ain't right I he same mantle of char table o- crecy was drawn over the mull service. The least said nlmut It the better. But the nut getting mull and the not get ting paid will be remembered much longer than sume or the other thine: we did over here. Wc evidently dldn'c have uny mail service wc all thought we didn't have or hnd no reason tu believe thut we did have so the man of ignoring it, only confirmed tho opinions that munt uf us had ul ready loimeil. In line with this genius for falling down on personal mutters, It is being luiioweii here in 1 rier ut present. Thole are several uigunizatiuns still here. We are ono of them. Thero ure rumors of moving "tout sweet." etc., yet un top of that they ure send ing us COO putients today, the train is due at the stntlon across the way in fifteen minutes the telephone boy Jut said, and I am to help receivo them. Does thut louk like we ure tu bo toot swectod home? And in the face of our being here, wc number around 400, this new lot will bring tho pa tients' total number to something over 1,000, und with several other organ izations here, (principally M. P.s Wu must bo a hard lut), tho govern ment has urdeicd the Immediate dol ing down uf ull welfare uiganlzutlons in this area, We have no mure shows ut the I 'est Halle, nu mure "dough nuts" nt the K. uf C, nu more shows mid books uml Ice cream, etc., at tho Bed Cross. The K.
