Editor, Michigan Daily:
Recently The Daily contained a very
interesting, short and meaty commun-
ication signed "Pro-American." May
your readers have the pleasure of
learning the name of the author of
that note? The day of masks is past.
The large, and ever increasing body
of Pro-Americans must be yearning to
know their brother's name that they
may welcome him into their ranks.
Let us then, know the name.
Pro-Americans all have the courage
of their convictions. I am sure that
it must have been an oversight on the
part of the writer in question to have
thus failed to sign\. his name, for a
"Pro-American" never writes any-
thing for the press to which he would
not willingly affix his own name, the
name whereby men know him. I feel
confident therefore that "Pro-Ameri-
can" will welcome this opportunity
to let himself be known. So let us:
have it.

The Marne region saw the approach,

story was by no means ended when
the Germans had withdrawn enough
