Lorraine Cross newspaper dated March 6, 1919

This web page contains the four pages of the Lorraine Cross newspaper dated March 6, 1919.
The Lorraine Cross newspaper was published by the 79th Division of the A.E.F. while in France.

The Lorraine Cross newspapers you see on this page were saved for future generations by Roy Leslie Sawin, who set all the column heads. He passed away in 1958, but fifty year later, Diane Sanborn, his Great-Niece, found the papers he had carefully saved, and took the time to scan them in for this website.

We are indebted to both of them because these newspapers are very rare
and not available anywhere else on the entire Internet.

r Although a drizzling rain did its best to spoil the occasion, a ~arge crowd of officers and enlisted men turned outfor tbebig Division Horsesbow held at Pierrefffte last Thursday.
~he show was attended by the division commander and rnany olGoers from the Ninth Corps and the Second Army. Ma jor-G e n e r a I Kulu^l, commander at that time of the Ninth Corps, was on hand, and exhibffed the keenest interest in the division's display ol horses and equipment. He expressed himself as very well pleased, both with the condit~on of the animals, and witb th,a evi~ent interest the m^pt^l ~rr~f C taking ^In the sbow. ^i
Brigadiar-General Johnson, at ^Ihat li~Do co~nn~audor of ^Ihe division, comunendod tbe ^Fhow, as follov s:
" Tho Division Co~nmander doeires to express hi^q approciation of tho fino ^Fhowing which was made at ^Ihe Divisional H,,rse Shuw yosterday. The Division ha^F^Iahoredunder a heavyhandi

"The poorest exhibit", by tho way, waseu^lered in the S 0. L. class. N

The enthusiasm and support which wa accorded THE LORRAINE CROSS tro
its first appearance made it evident tha sooner or later it would have to expand,
t not only to get out a bagger edition, but to print a paper big enough to do justice to the many activities that are now- going on in the Seventy Ninth Division. Both th press of the 304th Engineers, and the me who operated it for us, were worked ove time last week in order to keep up with th increasing demand for the paper; butwhe the final count was made, we found tha we were exactly eight copies over our lis of subscribers.and the limit of the pres had been reached.
We had scouted around down in Pari in an effort to find out what could be done hut the arrangements that we could mak there all seemed to be too impracticable t consider. We finally made an agreemen with A. Collot, 15 Rue Entre-deux-Ponts Bar-le-Duc, to print the paper, and fro
now on will be in a position to 6et ou enough conies to enable every man m the
- divi ion who wants the paper to get it
' ~ When we were in the throes of re'or^t~a^l^l · . ization, we decided at first to preserve the smaller form of THE LORRAINE CROS In wh;cl^l we printed the previous issues and to increase our space by adding to th number of pages. The considerations wer partly sentimental, for we thought that a a memento of the days in France, th men would like to have the original for in which the paper first appeared preserv ed.- Furthermore, it would certainly b more convenient to mail home But whe we came to figure it out, we found we woul
- have to make a small book each week, s we abandoned the idea, and adopted tb present form.
But as the first four issues will probabl be wanted by the men of the division, t preserve for historic reasons if for no others we are going to set them up in facsimil and run off enough copies to enable eac subscriber to have one. Our compositor will have to vvork on this during their spar time, so thatvve don't knovv just h,ovv soo vve shall be able to distribute them. I may be three or four vveeks before vve ca release the re-printed edition of Vol. I, No 1. But vve shall see that everybody ca
- have, if he likes, a complete file of TH LORRAINE CROSS. There vvill be n
· extra charge for these copies, but vve shal limit the distribution of them to our sub scribers,
It is a matter of general satisfaction tha Major-General Joseph E. Kuhn, the Sevent Ninth's commander during all its training and fighth~g, has come back to us after hav i^pg commanded the Ninth Corps for th past month.
~~ General Kulm has so long headed th
· Seventy Ninth that it seemed strange

It is high time that truck drivers operating in the area of this division were called to time for their mud splashing proclivities. One of the most familiar sights that we know of these days is that of a chaullear, passing a column of troops on the road, putting on all the power he's got and dashmg by the column at express speed.
On a muddy road, H^le result is always the same. Gobs of mud and filthy water ^ny to the right and left, and the Doughboys
tedding along are all mucked up. Now o one wants to make any threats, but it
his practice keeps up, it is suggested that bunch of Dou^Fhboys may forget their
arch discipline long enough some one of ese days to step out' of the column and ush a truck or two into the gutter. That vvouldn't be very nice for the opera or of the truck.
And splashing of mud on our uniforms. ard as the very devil to keep clean anyvay.isn't very nice for us. Take it easy, boys, vvhen you're passing column. Outside of the mud feature,
ou MIGEIT just happen to hit somebody
ome time.

_ ,67... BOOST COLYUM - Our Boost For This Week goes to the men of the Signal Corps. A11 thru the tough fighting this old Division had, the men of our own 304th Field Signal Batallion kept on the job and didn't miss a chance to show the stuff that's in them.
Keeping the wires open when the G. I. Cans and their little brothers are dropping around isn't any cinch job. Any infantry liaison officer Can testify to that. But, our wires were kept Open.
Functioning normally with radio, when gas and ot^he^l^r shells are dropping around, isn't any cinch, either. But, our raido men fm^lctioned normalIy. Nothing that Sig^L^la^l^s can be called unon to do is a cinch iob. BUt, Old Boy Signals makes good.
