Describe Brutality of the Huns. Paul Bidez, of RocKmart, Ga., who will be recalled by football enthusi asts as a star fullback with Auburn a few years ago, has written a letter back from the French front, where he is serving as a member of the fa mous Rainbow Division, the first national guard force to join the Per shing expeditionary army. Young Bidez is the brother of Royal V. Bi dez, of St. Elmo. After usual preliminaries in a let ter to his mother, the soldier writes thus of German horrors he has seen: There are many things that I would like to write you, but can't but I am glad that I am here; ' were I back in America with no one dependent upon me, I don't believe that I could look any honest man or pure woman in the face and not hang my head in shame. For I have seen child ren 8, 10 or 12 years old with their hands cut off at the wrist and their eyes gouged out. I have seen girls 14 and 15 years old with their breasts cut off; I have seen young women 19 to 20 years old with babies in their arms a German rapist the fath er. . As long as there is a real man living in the states we must fight until those wrongs are righted, so I am glad that I am Jiere and you m'us$ pot worry. can say to the World our doctrines and our laws must be respected and every American allowed to trade and travel in every known land. v 1 11 I
