POISON 400 PRISONERS
Paris, March 23.-The first daylight
air raid on Paris came today. The
people of Paris crowded the streets,
and great numbers of people were
watching for an aerial battle.
Since the "all clear" signal was not
given, it was thought that something
new in the way of a raid was ex-'
pected. This was not explained until
a statement was issued saying that
the delay was due to bombardment by
long distance cannon.
The "all clear" was then sounded
and the normal life was resumed.
Pieces of shells on examination were
found to bear rifling marks which
proved that they had not been drop-,
ped, but had been fired from a gun.

camp of Brandenburg, known as the
'hell-hole of Germany,' were inocu-

they thought they were being protect-
ed against a 'black typhus' epidemic
that never existed," said Gunner De-
pew last night in Hill auditorium In
speaking of some of the horrors he
found in German prison camps.
For many months, Gunner Depew,
'who is a Chicago lad, was a prisoner
of war in Germany until he was re-
leased through efforts of Ambassador
James W. Gerard. Only one post card
of his, Depew said, ever reached this
country, that one being written by
ambassador Gerard about him to the
American government. The rest of
his fellow-prisoners' mail was torn
up by German officers, often before
the very eyes of their captives.
Officer Breaks Girl's Wrists
A shudder ran through the audi-
ence when Gunner Depew described'
how a German officer, who had been
nursed back to life solely by the un-
tiring efforts of a French nurse, broke
the girl's wrists by twisting them,
when ordered to shake hands with her.
"He did not need to be court-mar-
tialed," said Gunner Depew, "every
man in the hospital, no matter how
badly wounded, leaped up immediate-
ly to properly repay him."
"No medical attention was given to
prisoners of Germany at Dulmen,
where nine out of every ten men were
wounded," said Gunner Depew, "ex-
cept to supply them with water." De-
pew was a member of the crew of the
Georgic, captured by the adventur-
ous German sea-raider, Moewe. He
has received the French "croix de

Gunner Depew talked very informally
to the audience and kept his hearers
constantly amused with humorous
stories of the things he encountered
in his fighting experiences. He was
introduced by Lieutenant Laurence of
Flint, who told how Depew's father
was among those who were sunk with
