TALE OF A SHIRT
English, Indiana, Saturday, Dec. 14-Mrs. Omer L. Robertson, wife of a soldier in France, several months ago made one shirt for the United States Army Quartermaster Department. At the time her husband was at home. He laughingly remarked he might have to wear the shirt when he joined the army.
Not long ago Robertson landed in France. He drew supplies of clothing and one of the shirts issued to him was that made by his wife. He has returned to her the tag she placed upon it when sending it to the Quartermaster Department.
