NEWS of the Boys in the Service

Mr. and Mrs. Edw. Nitzschke of Remsen are in receipt of a letter from their son, Lyle Nitzschke, in Belgium, announcing a meeting with his cousin, Warren Nitzschke, son of Mr. and Mrs. O. H.  Nitzschke.  He said he was sitting alone in a corner when he was tapped on the shoulder, and there stood Warren.  He was given a day off and the cousins had a splendid time. The two were then located within 10 miles of each other and said that while in England they were by 60 miles apart.
