I lie terrorization proceeding a rush
of the ISIack Wat eh. Scotland's famed

effect it has upon the Germans is told
in Dr. Rosweil Peak's latest letter
home From "somewhere over there."
Dr. Pettit says Sum Withe's article on
what, might happen in the Mississippi i
Valley ''struck him in the chest'' with
its potent possibilities of bringing the
war near to home. He also has some-j
tiling to say of lioehe butchery, ltut
above all else he says that when thei
big show starts in the spring hoj
knows the Yanks will give a good ac- i
counting of themselves and that noth
ing will stop them. His letter follows:

Dear Father:
Your letter of Dec. 31st reached

serious.
I have received several pacing'.)
of Ottawa papers during the pu -(,
week and was quite interested in
rending several of my letters u you.
I am sure thai t have no objection
to you publishing them if they jr;
of general interest. I also recek
several copies of the Saturday Evening-
Post, it's ail war, war. 'va-,
isn't it? When the (usually ! is
start coming in it will begin to 'n ve
a personal interest to those at
home, but I must say that from
what I ran gather from the paper
and magazines, the American ,peo
pic are show Inn a wonderful spirit
and I can't help feeling proud I hat
1 am an American, When tin; big
show starts, probably this Spring,
I know the Yanks will give a good
