New York, Jan. 20.—How the first
Americans were killed or captured by
the Germans is a story that has not
been fully told. Two accounts of the
fight received at the headquarters of
the National War Work Council of
the Y. M. C. A. throw considerable
light on it.
A French boy who fought in an ad-

and who helped to bury James T.
Gresham, of Evansville, Indiana;
Merle Hay, of Gidden, Iowa, and
Thomas F. Enright, of Pittsburg,
sent a brief description of the fight
to his grandmother who gave it to a
Y. M. C. A. worker in France, Alfred
M. Brace, Professor of Journalism at
the University of North Dakota. At
the same time, Chauncey P. Hulbert

survivors of the fight to their quar-

the Americans, but I assure you we
were in a quiet section till the mo-

same time attacked us also.

Robt. Fischelis says that a Hoover
is needed in the drug business to pre-
vent druggists from buying and
hoarding. Not only is the price of
many important drugs getting un-
reasonable, but worse yet, it is im-
possible to buy them at all. Mr. Fisch-
elis thinks that if every retail drug-
gist is forced to buy in small quanti-
ties, that there is more chance of
there being enough to go around.
