Ist Army when they reached a German prison camp, near Ltrnburg, Germany, and freed U. S. soldiers whose story of suffering is better told by the camera than by many thousands of words. Too weak to work in the Nazi labor gangs, they had been hos- pitalized. Crude wooden beds, such as are shown here, awaited them and daily rations were meager. Left to right above are: Lt. Charles Berry, Gates MilLs, O,; Sgt. Leonard Nevius, Washington, D. C.; an unidenti- fied man and T/4 Herbert Borden. New York MJI~. Minn.

A super-size pique beret with cross bars of green and red. gives the costume a sophisticated French touch.
