No Points THURSDAY, FEBRUARY I, IMS Wire Came Just 5 Days Too Late By HAL BOYLE With the 517th Parachute Combat Team In Belgium, Jan. 25-(Delayed)--(JP)--In a regimental command post envious soldiers read a telegram: ·"Corporal Blank holds a letter appointing him to the U.S.M.A. in 1945 x x x " It was one of those things hundreds of soldiers dream about--an appointment of a frontline fighter to the United States Military academy. The telegram continued: "If found physically qualified x x x will be returned to the United States to undergo training x x x " The chance of a lifetime! No more crawling through freezing sapw under mortar fire. No more shivering at night in lonely foxholes--and no more "C" rations. The soldier was a parachute corporal who had fought .'through Italy, Prance and Belgium. A runner took the telegram to a fonvara company with instructions to bring back the corpora] immediately with full equipment --ready to start at once for home and West Point. But no .happy corporal came back. The runner returned with this brief message from company headquarters: "Corporal Blank was killed in action at Trois Fonts, Belgium." The telegram had come 5 days too late. Any good battlefield commander prizes the regard of his men above any recognition that higher headquarters can bestow. That is'why Capt. Earl E. Ehly, former Philadelphia physical education instructor,-treasures a letter written by a wounded man in his company to the commander of the 517th parachute combat team. "Dear Sir," the letter said. "I am in hospital now with a fractured 1 skull. .Being an enlisted man under your command I would like to bring to your attention the kind of officer you have under your command. "The officer I am referring to is Capt. Earl E. Ehly. Here were bis actions while we were engaging the enemy at Soy, Luxembourg-. We were advancing: against a heavy concentration of small arms fire, mortar fire and 240- millimeter artillery fire. Capt. was hit in the ler. and as 1 HIGHEST PRE-WAR QUALITY TENDER IN 5 MINUTES A Delicious Treat with Poultry or Meat CAN'T MISS WITH THESE QUALITY FOODS CAMAY Toilet Soap 3 *r 19c Cream Style Sweet Corn He No. 2 Can .

Ehly, neglecting his wounds and the mortar fire, crawled to me and gave me first aid treatment and words of encouragement. I wrote this letter of my own free will." The letter was signed with an enlisted man's name. The letter--which means more to Ehly than the hero's ribbons he wears over his left pocket--didn't add what the boys who patched up the wounded at the aid station r e m e m b e r . Capt. Ehly wouldn't permit them to give him blood plasma until he was personally shown that the supply on hand was sufficient for all his wounded men.
