YANKS VISIT TOWN OF CAPUA Shakespeare Never Got There But They Did By GEORGE TUCKER Capua, Italy, March 1--(Dea y e d ) -- ( f P ) -- W h e n Shakespeare decided on Capua as the setting :or "Romeo and Juliet" he could hardly have supposed that American doughboys would one day ang the streets of this little town crying "Romeo, Romeo, where for art thou Romeo!" to every pretty ;irl who passed. They came here, most of them, without a ureat deal of appreciation of Shakespeare and thai mostly associated with school ant thereby with a certain unpleasantness. They know better now There are many pretty Juliets in Capua today, and balconies, too But most of the Komeos wear G clothes. Pvt. Frank Trybula ot Soutr Bend, Ind., can tell you some thing about it. "Romeo?" he said to Sgt. Tor Ferric of Republic, Pa., "He wa rial lovesick bird who used to ing to the babe on the balcony. iO · on, Tommy, and tell them :bout that babe you are singing o."

Tell hem about Annie," yelled Pvt. jester O'Shields of Pauline, S. Car. Ferrie was trapped and he knew it, and he said: "Me and Annie are going to get married after May 9th. I met her .n Naples and she was so pretty I fell in love with her, but I didn't Bropose until after I left her. jjuess I ; was too embarrassed." He said he was going to take Annie back to Republic after the war, back to Tommy's Lunch which he o\Vned before the arm got him. Capua today must look a grea' deal as It did in Shakespeare's lime though as Pvt. John C. Smill of Greenville, Tenn., pointed out Shakespeare never saw the town "That's the chief difference uc Iween us anil him," Smith said "lie never got here. We did.' Pvt. James F.
