Stew; Bits of Choice
With the First American Army In
France, Nov. 21.—Two hundred and
V • fifteen American soldiers who had
been held prisoners of war by the
Germans were brought into the town
of Revlgny yesterday. J
"You ought to have heard us give
them Heinies the eld raspberry when
we left up yonder," said Sergeant
Walter Sampson, of Chicago, who
was one of two men left of his pla
toon of Company E, 136 th Infantry,
after a charge.
r "They had us at Montmedy first,"
said Sampson, "but our bombers
came over and bombed h out of
the plaoe, so we went on strike and
refused to work around a railroad
that bombers were aiming at. Then
they took us That's where
we were when The fighting stopped.
"We knew the finish was in sight
because the German privates kept
telling us what was going on outside.
Every day they'd be around saying
the war was going to end next day;
they were tickled to death about
it, too.
"There was one mean. Prussian
sergeant—a little short guy—who
was always yelling at us, 'Raus |
Amerikanei, and we started a song |
for his benefit.
" '1 wish I had that son of a gun
at the end of a bayonet right now,' "
interrupted Fred Sona, of New York,
who was with the 113 th Infantry.
" 'He was certainly mean.' "•
"They didn't have much to eat
themselves, them Dutchmen didn't,"
said John Powell, of Campbellsville,'
Ohio, the only man from the First
Division in the party which repre
sented about fifteen American divi
sions which weraon the line of the
Argonne-Meuse drive.
"I'm going to dream about 'Dan |
I Patch' stew and barley soup as long
as I live. Dan Patch stew is horse I
flesh," he explained. "It was meat j
from horses that had been killed in
battle. You could see Ijow it had been
torn by shells." ■
"They treated us better than they
treated the Russians or French" said
Sergeant Herbert Birchard, of Oma- j
ha, who was a member of the 89th |
Division. "They had about 1,000 j
Russians there. They booted them
around pretty fierce all the time.

close was signed. The town was the scene of much heavy fighting during the great war.
even though Russia was supposed to
be at peace with them."
"How was I captured?" Birchard
grinned. "Well, I strayed over into
the German lines one night. I saw a
lot of guys laying on the ground
sleeping, and I thought they were
our own men; so I 1 went around
shaking them and telling them to
wake up. Finally I heard one guy
say 'Vot iss?' The next thing I knew
about forty Dutchmen were around
me." *
"Those Russians certainly got a
rough deal," said Corporal E. Farfot,
of Richmond, Va., from the 116 th
Infantry. "When we refused to work
around the railroad where the
bombers were dropping explosives
the French prisoners also struck, so
the Russians had to do all the work
there. They worked us on the roads,
and when they did work us they paid
us six cents a day."
