NEWMAN NASH IS A SUICIDE AT TWO RIVERS Shoots Himself at Tourist Park This Afternoon- Note Says He Feared Dementia Newman Nash, city police justice and for some months engaged in the insurance business, killed himself by firing a shot through his brain shortly before 2 o'clock this afternoon. Nash's act was committed at tourist park in Two Rivers, which he had visited alone and no direct cause for the suicide is known. Feared Loss of Mind. A note found at the side of the body, although unsigned, has been identified as being the handwriting of Mr. Nash and indicated that he was fearful of his health. The note said: "My mind is leaving me. Better death than to endure this." The body of the unfortunate man was found by a boy passing through the park and it is believed that the fatal shot had been fired but a short time previously. Mr. Nash had not been at his office at police headquarters this morning, but was seen about the city. Mr. Nash has been prominently identified with civic affairs and last fall was a candidate for county register of deeds on the Democratic ticket. For some time he had been engaged in the real estate business and at one time in the printing business with his brother, Noel. Decedent is survived by his widow and two children. He is about 40 years of age. He was in the U.S. navy at one time. Manitowoc Herald News, Thursday, May 26, 1927 P.1 ******* FUNERAL OF NEWMAN NASH HELD SUNDAY Rash Act Believed to Be Result of Effects of Service in War Funeral services for Newman Nash, whose tragic death, self inflicted yesterday, was a great shock to the community, will be held Sunday and will be conducted by the Robert Burns post of the Legion, and the local post, Veterans of Foreign Wars, both of which he was one of the organizers. Mr. Nash held office in the state organization of the Veterans of Foreign Wars at time of his death, being judge advocate. The body will be at the Beduhn & Goetz parlors until Saturday when it will be taken to the home for private funeral services on Sunday. Mr. Nash was one of the best known men of the city, a son of the late William F. Nash, founder and editor of the Chronicle here. He was born September 11, 1888, and at age of 18 joined the U.S. navy and made a cruise around the world, and served four years. Returning here he was associated with his father and brother in the newspaper business until eight years ago. Served in World War. Mr. Nash served overseas in the World war and friends believe that his rash act is the result of injuries and having been gassed in service. He gained the rank of lieutenant at Fort Sheridan and then served 17 months overseas. Mr. Nash eight years ago organized Troop C of the 105th Cavalry, Wisconsin National Guard, in this city, which organization functioned for three years and disbanded like other troops in the smaller cities. He gained the rank of captain of the troop and was considered one of the best national guard officers of the state. Deceased leaves his widow, formerly Tina Schultz, two sons, Kenneth and Jack, and one daughter, Nina. He also leaves his invalid mother, Mrs. William F. Nash, four brothers, William Nash of Waukesha, Garret of Dubuque, Iowa, and Noel and Lyman of this city. Two sisters also survive him, Katherine Nash and Mrs. Arthur Lohman. He was a member of the Cocobola camp, Modern Woodmen, B.P.O.E., Veterans of Foreign Wars and the Robert E. Burns post, American legion, the latter two organizations conducting the burial. Rev. T.A. Hawkes will officiate with interment at Pioneer's Rest. Manitowoc Herald News, Friday, May 27, 1927 P.8 ******** TWO RIVERS MAN TELLS OF SERVICE WITH WAR Y, OVERSEAS Newman Nash, of Two Rivers, who has been serving with the Y.M.C.A. overseas and who has visited most of the big battlefronts, tells of his service, scenes he has visited and many interesting incidents in a letter just received by his brother Noel Nash, editor of the Two Rivers Chronicle and through courtesy of Mr. Nash the Herald-News is able to give the letter today. It follows: American Expeditionary Forces, LeMans, France. Wednesday, December 11, 1918. Dear brother: Now that the armistice has been signed and the censorship rules have been modified, we are allowed to write to the folks back home and tell them what happened and where we were the past year. I shall give a brief summary of the places and the different fronts that I have been on since my arrival in this country. We left New York City on January the 10th, sailing on the White Star Liner Olympic. We had no convoy across the pond, as this ship keels and can run away from any sub in the German Navy. This ship was converted into a merchant cruiser and carried four six inch naval guns forward and four aft. All lights were extinguished at night from sun down to sun rise. During the day ship drills were held at irregular hours. The reason for this irregularity of drills was that in case of the real thing we would not be taken by surprise. We were very fortunate on the trip over and did not sight a sub. One the morning of the 17th we sighted the coast of Ireland and believe me, it was a welcome sight to see land, as the strain of the trip on one’s nerves was very hard. That day we steamed thru the Irish Sea and the following day we docked in the wonderful sea port of Liverpool, England. That same day in the afternoon we entrained on an English train and made the trip to South Hampton. We passed thru a very pretty country, and one would not have known that the war was on from the appearance of the country. At South Hampton we again embarked on a small channel boat by the name of Madras Queen. This little tub I shall never forget, as she is certainly the champion high diver on the channel. After six hours of sea sickness, we arrived in LaMarve, France. We remained at LaMarve that day and the following morning we went to the historical city of Blois. At this place I visited the beautiful chateau which played a very important part in the early history of France. We were billeted in a large French barrack which was built of stone and dates back to Napoleon the first. After a few days we again boarded a train and left Blois for the city of Langres, France. This trip was very interesting as we passed thru the much beautiful part of France. Of course all French railway trains are the slowest things in the world. It took us two days and two nights to arrive at our destination. At Langres the Army School for the American Expeditionary Forces was to be opened. Here we remained for one month and a half. About February the 15th I was sent to the front for the first time. The front that I went to was the Arras and we had the pleasure of being in the line with the Australians. While doing my trip in the line, I had my first experience of going over with a raiding party. This is the way the party is picked out. Word came down in the afternoon that a raid would be pulled off and that our company was to do the trick. Of course no officer cares to volunteer for this job so the captain has them draw lots. The lucky or as I call it the unlucky one, then goes out along the trench and picks the men he wants to go with him on the job. About 11:30 we started out of the trench, thru our gap in the wire, this wire is the barb wire entanglement that is in front of the trenches and helps to protect the line. We walked about 50 yards and then crawled for 75 until we got up to ‘Fritz’s’ wire. Here we laid quiet for several minutes, which seemed ages to me. Lieut. Farrel, who was in charge of the party, after making sure the enemy was quiet, gave the pre-arranged signal and we went thru the gap of Fritz’s wire. We left a man remain at this gap, so that we could find it in a hurry in case things got too hot for us. Crawling forward until within a few yards from Fritz’s trenches we made for them on the jump and landed inside. Two men went down the trench to the left and two to the right. Their job was to hold up anything that would come down and try and spoil our little fun. The rest of us made for the communication trench. Here we ran across a dug out and of course we did the usual thing and called down to Mr. Fritz to come out. We managed to get six of the tribe and as things were getting warm we could not wait for the rest, so we did the next best thing and threw a hand grenade into the dug out with the best of luck. Believe me we did not lose any time in getting out of his trench and back to our lines with our prisoners. We no sooner left this trench than a machine gun down the trench to our left opened up and we could hear the crack of the bullets over our heads. I think that I made the first 75 yards to an old sunken trench in less time than it takes to tell it and I noticed that I was not alone as they were all there. We got into our gap. This gap was not the one that we started out from as it is foolish to return by the same way, as Fritz has his own ideas about this gang alone. When we were safely inside our trenches the men were told that they could lie down for a bit and each was issued out a portion of rum. Believe me they earned that little drink. The prisoners were turned over to the intelligence department. This department is the best in the land to pump information. These prisoners were a rather good looking bunch of men and they talked very freely. That morning at “stand to” rum was again served out to all the men. February is a bad month over here. I remained in the line this time until the 25th of the month and then went out for a few weeks rest. This trench warfare is hell on one’s nerves. I could feel my nerves tighten up like the strings on a string instrument and relax when I was out a few days. The worse part of this warfare is the shelling at night and in the morning. Fritz is very prompt in his morning calls with his artillery barrage, and he tries his best to get your goat. The only thing you can do is to call him names and rely on your own artillery to do their best in returning his call. If you have never had the privilege of hearing a 9 point 2 go whistling over your head, or a trench mortar shell singing “home, sweet home,” you have missed something worthwhile. At “stand to” in the morning all rifles of the men are inspected and each man stands on the firing steps looking over at Fritz. This takes only a few minutes and then “stand down” is given. The men then have breakfast and lie down to sleep. There is very little sleeping at night, as much work has to be done then. Such as rebuilding the wire that Fritz has blown to hell the night before and building new stuff. This is no daylight job as he could make things very unpleasant for you and the rest of the party. The meals are all brought up into line for the men in large cans and buckets. The liquids such as soup and coffee are in large thermal cans, (illegible) tea about as well as the British and drink large quantities of it. The night that we were relieved from the line, Fritz certainly tried his best to make things as uncomfortable as possible for us. I guess he succeeded in doing it, as I was mighty glad when we were out. When out of the line the men are drilled daily in such things as close order and open order drills. This goes on until they go back into the line for another trick. When I left the Australians, I was sent to a school to study gas warfare. This was a two weeks course and I enjoyed every minute of the time that I was there. From this school I was sent to join the 77th Division of New York and worked with them until May 29th when I was again sent to the 28th Division as an instructor in Minor Tactics, the new open warfare formations. Here I remained until June 15th when I was assigned to the present 30th Division. This division is composed of men from South and North Carolina and Tennessee. The men are the finest bunch of soldiers that one could lay eyes on and they have certainly made a name for themselves over here. On July first we started on a hike into Belgium. This took us four days and the morning of July 4th we entered into Belgium. Gee, that was some hot day. We marched to within a few miles of the city of Ypres and here we camped in a large British camp. The following week we started for the line in front of the city of Ypres. I had my first view of the stuff called “kultur.” This beautiful city is nothing but a bunch of holes and bricks. The Hun shelled this place continuously from the beginning of the war, up to the time that he was driven back, a few months ago. Nothing remains of the beautiful Cloth Hall, that one read so much about. This place has not a wall standing and the old cathedral is to the ground. The streets are not passable, as shell hole after shell hole has been made in them. Nevertheless, the Hun could never got into this place if he had carried on the war for a thousand years. While in the trenches at this place, we had some very exciting times, as the shelling was something fierce both day and night. But we were about this time sending over ten shells to the enemy’s one, so you can see that his position was not pleasant. About a week after we were in the line. This outfit did the trick and took Kamel Hill, of course we lost a few men, but it was worth the sacrifice. From Belgium we traveled again by rail back to France and stayed in a little village by the name of Pressy, for about two weeks. One morning we got a notice to be ready to move within a few hours by “lorries” in American language that is ? trucks. We got aboard these “lorries” the whole regiment and I think there must have been several hundred and rode for 18 hours, when we arrived in the city of Preron?, France. Here we rested for two days and then we went into the line in front of the village of Villert. This place is between Saint Queatin and Cambrai. The first night in we certainly caught hell, for enemy shelled us with everything they had, from gas to high explosives. The first officer to go “west” that night was a captain in D company to my right. A large piece of shrapnel hit him on the head and tore a hole thru his steel helmet and blew away part of his head. He died on a stretcher before they could get him back. During the morning many more of the lads were killed. On the evening of September the 24th we went over the top and straightened out our line. We pushed ahead about 800 yards that night in the rain. Gee didn’t Fritz get sore at us. He counter attacked but we were on the job waiting for him and made it too warm for him. On the morning of September 29th which was the date of the real big show and I am telling you it was some show. At 5:55 we went over the top with tanks and all the extra machines of death known to man. A heavy fog had settled and this made things rather bad for us, but the men were in fine spirits and wanted to get after Fritz. The artillery barrage that cleared the way for us that morning was something great. It was said that that barrage was the largest that had ever been laid down on any front and I am ready to believe it. Well, we started at 6:10 and followed our tanks keeping to the rear of them about 40 yards. They did fine work for the infantry, putting out of commission machine gun nests and the likes. At about 11 o’clock that morning we consolidated on the other side of the Hindenburg line and it was with a sad heart that I heard that many of my men had gave their all for their country. Lieut. Erale, who was in charge of the company that morning, was killed just after we started. I guess he went only about 50 yards before he was hit. He certainly was a dandy fellow and I felt sorry to see him go. I was then the only officer left and from that date on and I had charge of the company. While at this place I had the chance of visiting the wonderful tunnel that the Hun had built. The things that I saw I will not tell you in this letter but shall wait until I return home as it would not look good in writing. You remember what the newspapers said about the Hun, cooking his dead to extract the grease, well I saw the outfit. It was in the tunnel. Fritz certainly intended to remain in this place for the winter as he had the place fixed up in great shape. The following morning we went over the top again and captured the village of Monthrane. When we entered the village we found it was still occupied by the French. That is, there were only the old people left. Three days before the main body of women murderers left. They took the young women with them for what purpose, you can best think. These people were so glad to be delivered that they ran out into the streets from their cellars and threw their arms around our necks and kissed us like long lost brothers. They then showed my men where some of the Huns were still hiding in cellars and believe me, we made short work of them with hand grenades. One old lady about 60 years of age was lying dead in the street, her breast crushed by a truck that had passed over her. The Hun in his mad rush to get away had not made any effort to dispose of her body. Well what can one expect from such machine made soldiers. Here is the place that I found the true Hun officer and soldier that you have heard so much about. You can take it from me, all that has been said is true and a thousand times more. They will never have the right again to mingle in the society of other people as this war has brought out their color. We again went over the top the following evening about 11 pm and consolidated near a railroad cut. From this place on things went so fast that I have not even had time to think as we had the Hun on the run and he certainly did run after we broke the Hindenburg line. At the time of the breaking of the line we were the only American troops in this sector and we are a proud lot to have that honor as we were the first Allies to cross this line. Two days before we came out of the line before the armistice was signed my men and myself were all in. we simply could not go any farther. I came out with 54 men out of 256. Of course, not all were killed, this includes the ones that were wounded and sent to the hospital. The night that we received the word that the armistice was signed we were billeted in a small village by the name of Warley, near the ?. The French people had returned to their homes, what was left of them. The band from the regimental headquarters came down and paraded the one main street. This was about (illegible, article gets too dark to read) When they were told that the armistice was signed and that the war was over they stood there and stared and then it dawned on them that after four years of suffering and war the thing had come to an end. They cried and they ? and it would have made any man feel good to see the sight. That night we talked until very near dawn about all the people back home and wondered if they were having the same celebration only on a larger scale, but it I am sure was not as impressive as the one we witnessed here. You people back in the states don’t know a thing about this war and its sufferings. Why one old lady told me she has lost all five of her sons and that she would give five more if she had them for her beloved France. I shall have to come to a close as it is getting rather late and tomorrow we are going to have a bath and get rid of the “cooties.” By the way that is another thing that you probably never have had. Well they are the quietest little things you ever had, like ?. Send me the Chronicle as I am interested in everything that is going on at home.

Bronze Plate With Name of Donald White Sealed in Memorial Stone MADISON, WIS., May 31-The sacrifice of one Manitowoc man who gave his life in service during the World War was commemorated at the laying of the corner stone of the Memorial Union at the University of Wisconsin yesterday. His name was Donald White, son of Mrs. Emma White and was sealed in the corner stone along with those of 205 other World War and Civil War dead to whose memory the stately Union building is to stand as an enduring tribute. President Glenn Frank for the university, Lieutenant Governor Henry R. Huber for the state, Mayor A.G. Schmedemann for the city of Madison, Fred H. Clausen for the university alumni, and Lowel Frautschi of Madison, president of the Union Board, for the students spoke for their groups to the assemblage and to the Gold Star relatives who were honor guests at the ceremony tributes to the university men and women who have given their lives in service and to those who have survived their service. Seal Name Plate In Stone Then was sealed into the corner stone a metal box containing bronze plates bearing the names of the university's war dead, a roll of those who served, and of those whose gifts made possible the Memorial Union building. The stone was cemented into place in the structure, and the ceremony ended with the soldier's traditional salute to her hero dead-the blowing of Taps and the firing of the National Salute. The brief ceremony at the Union building was ?????? by the parade and the services a Lincoln terrace on the upper university campus which hold a significant place in the partriotic ritual of the university and Madison. U.W. Women Parade The parade, with 23 civic and academic organizations in its line, arrived at the campus at 11 o'clock. The ceremony which followed ended with a procession of 206 white-clad university women, each bearing a wreath and a metal plate with the name of one of the university's war dead, to the corner stone box. Each placed in the box the plate she bore, then deposited the wreath at the foot of the Lincoln statue. The lines reformed and the women led the procession to the Union building. The Manitowoc war hero whose memory was recalled at the ceremony today, and will be prepetuated in memorial plaques in the great hall of the completed Memorial Union building at the university is Donald William White, son of Mrs. Emma E. White, 602 Park street. Manitowoc Herald News, Tuesday, May 31, 1927 P. 1 WIEGEL: Jay - Pvt. - Co. G. 131 Inf. - Manitowoc WIERTZBACH: John Joseph - Pvt. - NARD Cp.
