Title: They Tried -- But Couldn't Stop Him
From: Victim Versus Victor
Original caption: It required very little verbal persuasion on the part of the young lady who sold Aubrey McLeod a Liberty Bond recently. He may have been thinking of the day the Huns bombarded a certain hospital in France and left him without legs. McLeod's home is Marlboro, Mass. Before he joined an ambulance unit, he was a student of Chemical Engineering at Purdue University. And he's going to leave Walter Reed Hospital before long, to complete his college education.
