How Soldiers Spent Holidays
in Germany Told by Weil-

! Among the very interesting letters
received from overseas, is one from
Sergeant William K. Wilson to his
mother, Mrs. Franklin C. Wilson.
Twenty-first street and Parkhill

with the Headquarters Motor Section,
Fourth Corps Artillery Park. He der
scribed graphically his Christmas day
in Germany. Among other things he
"First, let me say that we had a
very enjoyable day, a most enjoyable
one considering our absence from
home. I should have very much re
gretted spending it in any other place
than Mayen.
"Our Christmas festivities began
the night before when we were in
vited to a luncheon at 7 o'clock In
the second floor flat by Herr Gadzka
and his Fh-au. It was most enjoyable
and odd in a way. for the only one
of .us four who can speak German at
all with any kind of intelligence is
Sergeant Fox and none of the others
spoke English. But we had a-fine
time for Herr Gadzka is above the
average in intelligence and I suppose
earns a very healthy salary which
permits him to furnish his apart
ment in a very tasty - manner and
clothe both wife and two children in
the best of clothing. Aside from we
four whom I have enumerated in a
former letter, bliere was present
Gadzka and wife, a young lady who
resides nearby and the miss from the
first-floor flat.
Celebrate Chrlstmne
'Cookies, tea or wine, ham sand
wiches and the favors of candy taken
along by us formed the wherewithal
of the occasion. The party was over
at 10 o'clock when all descended to
the first floor to assist in the trim
ming of the tree, after which more
cookies and cocoa were served and a
general good time was in order. We
were entertained by a chorus formed
by the 'Deutschers' in the party and
the melodian who really sang very
well their Christmas carols among
which is one well-known in America,
namely, 'Heilige Nacht.' The evening
ended at 12, when we again ascended
to our third floor habitat only to find
that they had preceded us there and
placed a large tray of cookies and
some other pastry delicacies on our

afternoon before Christmas and con
tinued throughout the entire night
with the 25th a clear, crispy morning
and a bright sun.
"We, as usual, started for the of-

away, but only got as tar as the

our morning's repast of cocoa and

This very little Frau Bchmltz is a
wonderful baker„of "pastries and after
the months we had seen with only
bread or hard tack we certainly con- i

but the supply.is limitless, it seems.
We were presented with much
ter, with our presents, each of the
fellows receiving a ring with the
Gtermtfn colors and a German cross
enamelled thereon. It will prove a
very attractive remembrance of the
occasion, but is really only very
cheap. We were now in a sort of
quandary for we had nothing to re
turn so we protested our great hurry

turn to present them with our pres

its receipt I felt like a millionaire
but will hold it like one also.
"At 12 o'clock we again returned to
I the house of SSclimitz for our Christ
mas dinner, served in wonderful style,
consisting of baked rabbit and the
usual 'fixings.' It is such'a pleasure
to sit down to a table witli china
dishes and a table cloth. The foou
was well cooked and delicious and
we disposed of it in a true American
style, consuming it in vast quantities,
for we ail have the rosiest of appe
tites, until it was well after one when
we had to excuse ourselves and pro
ceed to our own Christmas dinner at
our own kitchen. We were all pretty
well stuffed but not so much that we
could not clean up some dessert.
"Jones, my side sergeant invited
me for a ride in the side car of one
of our motorcycles and we drove out
to a castle nearby, 'Schlosse Burres
heim, situated in the hills, about
three kilos from the town. The
road led through forests of ever
greens, which were now covered with
about six inches of snow and present
ed a picture which I shall never for
get. Jn and out, around the moun
tains now snow-covered, to the en
trance of this old castle but could
not gain admittance because a oom
pany or American troops are now sta
tioned there and the guard would not
permit us to enter. That, however,
did not deter from the wonderful
scenery surrounding and we spent
the balance of the aftijrnoon in just
gazing about and pushing the cycle
out of the snow drifts. This castloe
was formerly the property of a Bel
gian Graf but'has not been occupied
for years.
Ridicule for Knlser
We returned to the billet and again
were invited to partake of a lunch
with Herr Gadzka arM his wife. After
the meal we fiiayed chess and other
amusing card games. Jones conceived
the very brilliant idea bringing !
down from our room a bundle of
American magazines, given us by the
Red Cross and forthwith the fun
stnrted for the magazines were thick
with cartoons of Hindenburg, the
Kaiser and the Crown Prince, all !
caricatured in every conceivable !
ridiculous form. That started things
arguments in half-German, half-Eng
lish. all, of course, was taken in the
spirit which it was intended and we
all got the greatest amusement from
these comics and the books were just
polluted with them. Herr Gadzka
proved himself a good scout and de
rived as much pleasure from the car
toons as we did but the females, es
pecially one, got peeved, but it soon
wore off.
"Herr Gadzka Is Interested In coins
and I, too, although just casually as
he dragged out a box containing rare
German moneys, some dating back to
1632. And so the evening passed, we
exchanging German for English and
vice versa, not coins but words. He
is anxious to learn English and we
German, so he has requested that,
when ew have no place to spend our
evenings, instead of remaining in our
rooms to come down to his very
comfortable library and chat.
"These Germans make their Christ
mas extend over a period of two davs
| instead of One, so that today is as
much a holiday as yesterday and none ]
of them work. We. however, were I
on the job and remained there all day
with plenty to do.
"This snow of yesterday was the
first of any moment this season and
In going down to the office yesterday
morning the entire town lined the
streets, snowballing everybody, to
which our fellows joined so that we
were pelted by both soldiers and in
habitants on our way and we re
turned the Arc. A statue of the
Kaiser, a bust of him, I should say,
stands in a small park at the junc
tion of two streets and of course that
too came in for its share. The Kaiser
was duly 'strafed' *and his counte
nance plugged with beauty spots.
"The siTatue is quite gigantic and
could not be pushed over by the men
so we are endeavoring to get the
gang together some night, throw a
noose around his neck And have one
of our Quads pull the thing over into
the creek. It may mean court mar
tial but we must pass it every day
and the idea of that despoilcr repos
ing in peace on that piece of granite
is more than we can endure, so 'To
hell with the Kaiser."
"We have many times wondered if
there is some ulterior niotiye behind
all this generosity of the Germans
but our deductions always let us in a
circle, so to speak. Are they doing it
because of the impression they ex
pect to make, in the expectation of
having the Allies deal with them
more leniently at the Peace Confer
ence? Or is it with the idea of allevi
nting that existing repulaiveness and
hatred for them in the hope of op
ing n future market in America tor
their manufactured goods? It's hard
to say but I know it is almost gen
eral, this cordial treatment by these
Huns. They <ion't like that term nor
do they' like Ttoche for we have tried
them with both and they usually re
sent it.
"The Major went to Coblenz the
other day and upon his return had
the orderly bring from his ear twen
ty or thirty helmets he secured there.
The Germans had their storehouses
loaded with these very highly impres
sive spiked helmets In preparation
for their entry into Paris but never
got there and so how the same hel
mets are returning to the States as
souvenirs. We just spent a number
of hours dismantling some to brtng
along if possible. The place sunds like
a small boiler shop for the fellows
are taking them apart with punches,
all being riveted togethef."

World Shortage of Wool
To Make Clothes Costlier
Dictators of Fashions For American Men Declare For

Atlantic City, Jan. 29.—0h, man,
clothes are going to cost more!
Executive committeemen of the Na-t

gloomy prophecy that prices'for fine

Assurances have been received
from London, it was officialy an

wholesale quotations for fine fabrics
for one year at least, probably two
and possibly three years.
