' IlLA'CKARD IN HOSPITAL Rumors have been flying thick and fast of late concerning the condition of Marshall Blackard Ever since he was reported to be in a hospital in England I have heard at least a half dozen different reasons for his .hospitalization but" none seems to be logical. Perhaps the most persistent was that he had suffered the loss of an arm and a' leg-. His mother, Mrs. Idell Blackardj received a letter from him yesterday that was written Auij. IV. He tdld her that lie was all light; (hut he hod suffered a recurrence with his chest and expected to be "all right soon." Capl- Gene Bradly, who was with him in France, wrote that Marshall hart been sent to a hospital back In England and should- get" "all right", but added that "he would not be sent back' where he was." What he meant . by the statement is not known., of course, due to strict cen^ sorship, . . . Mrs'. Blackard pins her hope that Marshall' isn't seriously Injured oh the fact that it has been ihor e than a month since he has been In the hospital and has' received no word from the War DeOTrlment.
