Hun Hates Columbus.

Rev. Daniel L. March, just returned from the western front after a six months' visit, tells this story:
A german prisoner was out of humor and was being "kidded" by the Americans.
"Why so glum, Fritzie?" asked one doughboy. "Are you 'sore' at France?
No. Fritzie wasn't sore at France, nor England, nor Belgium.
"Well, what's the matter then?"
"I'm sore at Christopher Columbus," was the reply. "He discovered America."
