CONNELLSVILLE BOYS IN FRANCE LIVE ON FINEST THE NATION CAN PRODUCE Further baring the details of her fall; Mrs. Sarah Irwta, alias Mrs. Sarah Wright, star witness ,in the case of Patsy Medio charged with the murder of Raymond Bartelli at Dawson last December, this morning admitted on cross examination that she had pretended to the Italians, .Medio and Bartello, that she was of Italian parentage. She said she told them that her rather was a Frenchman and her mother Italian but that she had been reared by Americans. Her defense was that she told them almost anything because of f rt ar of her life. Mrs. Irwin was called by the commonwealth at 1.30 o'clock Tuesday j afternoon and sat on the witness chair continuously until 5.20 .-o'clock. On direct examination Mrs. Irwin testified that she went to housekeeping with Bartelii about the middle of November at Dawson and that the relation existed until the first week in-December when Bartelli disappeared. . She testlfled that Medio was a frequent visitor at the bouse and that on the'day in qxicstion the two left about .4 o'clock in the afternoon and returning a short timo later left again at 5 o'clock. When Raymond returned, she testified,' he was very pale and threw himself across the bed-in the upstairs room. About 15 minutes later, she testified, she heard a noise downstairs and Patsy called for Raymond. - Bartclli got up and - went down- Stairs, she said, and a short time later, she heard loud talking. Mrs. Irwin said, she took the lamp and went downstairs. Upon opening the stairway door, she said, she saw Raymond sitting on a -chair beside the tablo and at one end of the table Patsy stood over him -with a revolver pointed within a few inches of his head. When she had gor.e up about three Continued r^om Pace Ona. with the Americans Iravo made them extremely wary of coming in contact with them. It ia only when a clash cannot be avoioded that the Hung risk an encounter, and then their brag fighting units are selected for tic attack or defense as the case may be. There is everywhere throughout France the feeling that once the American army has attained the strength deemed necessary thsre will be a reversal in the order of battle and that movement will be started which will eventually crush the Hun army, out of existence or force its unconditional surrender. There is little wonder, Mr. Harry's friend says, that Germany, inspired by fear and dread of what tho Americans will do tocher armies, is making superhuman efforts to break through the lines and annihilate the French and Britisn armies before the Americans are on tho ground in full force. But "they shall not pass," was the Verdun as it is now before Paris. That it is even more effective now than it was in 1915, 'the French are willing to give large credit to the Americans who, as the Marines about Chateau Thierry have shown, know how to keep the "not" in its place in the historic phrase. The location of the 15th Engineers is not being revealed, hut it is known that they are close enough to the front to hear the roar of battle, wait- Ing as impatiently as other units for the time when the command will b6 given for them to get into the game. When that time conies they will know where tliey are going and the Huns will know why they are coming.
