"DONT LET THE GERMANS TAKE YOU PRISONER," IS THE SPIRTTBOYS LIKE To Hare Their Mothers Display: It Serves Tliem to Meet Big Tasks They Are Having Over Thcr«. The spirit the mothers "back home" in America display towards the" participation of their sons in the war is going to prove a mishiy factor in sustaining them in the great struggle. When the parental injunction takes the form: "Whatever you do, do not let tbe Germans take you prisoner," the effect upon the person to whom it is addressed, if he be a soldier in France, is certain to be most stimulating. This is strikingly illustrated in an incident in which a mother and son, both known to many Connellsville people, figure. In one of her letters to her son. Sergeant N. A. Briscoll, of Battery B., 17th Field" Artillery, with the American Expeditionary Forces in France, Mrs. Catherine C. Driscoll, used the words quoted, -In reply Sergeant Driscoll wrote: ''The Spartan mother has become proverbial, but in all history there is no line to excel that ot your, 'whatever you do, do not let the Germans take you prisoner. 1 With God's help I'll try to satisfy you. "Last Tuesday was a red letter day in camp. Mail came in in bagsful, and best ot all there was something for me. Gee! it's great to receive letters. If you all knew what a letter means to the boys in France, you'd spend half your (jnie writing to them. It's a keen disappointment to see. a bag of mail-come in and receive nothing.
