GREAT WAR SERIES The Spoken World is to Home Morale in War Times what Ammunition is to our Soldiers on the Battlefield. Information Inspiration Patriotism MARIE ROSE LAULER The Spirit of the Women of France SERGEANT ARCHIBALD MUNRO Eighteen Months in German Prisons ELWOOD T. BAILEY From Transport to Trench Three Authoritative Speakers Direct From The Front. WORLD'S GREATEST CONFLICT PRESENTED FROM THREE DISTINCT ANGLES REDPATH Great War Series MARIE ROSE LAULER The Spirit of the Women of France SERGEANT ARCHIBALD MUNRO Eighteen Months in German Prisons ELWOOD T. BAILEY From Transport to Trench Marie Rose Lauler MARIE ROSE LAULER As long as the memory of the world endures people will honor the heroic women of France and Belgium. The outrages visited upon them by the ravaging Hun, their unquenchable spirit in the midst of overwhelming woes will never be forgotten. Marie Rose Lauler was a French school girl in a Belgian convent when the war broke out and she tells from a woman's standpoint the story of the German advance through Belgium, tells of the barbaric atrocities committed upon women, old men and children and recounts also the story of her own imprisonment by the Germans, her escape and recapture, and finally how she came to the United States of which she was and is a citizen, although at the beginning of the war she had never been to America and could not speak English. It would be difficult to imagine a more damning indictment of Germany and German Kultur than is found in the story of this young maid of France. Simply and in words made charming by the quaintest of accents, Marie Rose Lauler recounts a story which incontrovertibly convicts the Hun of the most revolting barbarism. It is wonderful story. This young French girl, scarcely twenty years old, tells of the greatest happenings almost in all history, tells of sorrow and grief and pain and then right in the midst of it all, with true Gallic spirit, she gives utterance to flashes of wit and humor that lighten up her recountal and makes one glimpse something of the indomitable pluck and courage of her people. The story of Marie Rose Lauler is one of the great narratives of the great war. Sergt. Archibald Munro SERGEANT ARCHIBALD MUNRO After eighteen months of almost unbelievable suffering in German prison camps, Sergeant Archibald Munro, one of the first thirty thousand of the Canadian troops to fight on the fields of France, tells his thrilling and vivid story on the Great War Series. Sergeant Munro was wounded at Ypres. For twenty-four hours he lay helpless in no man's land and then was captured by the Huns. He tells us the things about prison life in Germany which we have all been wanting to know. From him we learn from one who has himself suffered the vilest of insults and the most inhuman tortures at German hands, just what the Huns are doing and have done to American and allied prisoners. Sergeant Munro is a great human document. He is a young man, but he has lived a life time. When the history of the great war is finally written there will surely be an all absorbing chapter dealing with the sufferings and heroism of such men as Sergeant Munro. Elwood T. Bailey ELWOOD T. BAILEY Elwood T. Bailey, just back from six months in France, England and Italy, comes to tell a story of personal experiences involving phase after phase of the great war. Life on the transport and in and behind the trenches, air and submarine attacks, all figure vividly in his great lecture, From Transport to Trench. For 32 consecutive days Mr. Bailey was in the front line trenches. He was with the American Marines at Chateau Thierry when they turned the tide and repulsed the great German advance. He was gassed and rendered insensible and it is because of injuries thus sustained that he is now back in the United States. Mr. Bailey was in charge of the welfare work on the transport on which he went to Europe and his work over there was to speak in the different army camps. He talked to over a million soldiers in France and learned by intimate acquaintance how they live, what they say and think and how they fight. A great feature of this lecture is Mr. Bailey's description of the life and spirit of war-time England. He tells also of the spirit of Italy and how Italy opened up the door to Berlin. Mr. Bailey is a vividly eloquent speaker. Endowed with a keen power of observation, he brings to his lecture wonderful descriptive ability. Few can tell more interestingly or more understandingly of the soldier and his problems.
