  • Text: La Guerre offre par moments des aspects pittoresques et inattendus. Un de ces aspects curieux / fut certainement la rencontre, en Haute Alsace, entre patrouilles de skieurs, que nous signale le / Communiqué du 4 Février. / Dans les Vosges, sur les belles pentes couvertes de neige, le spectacle était grandiose de ces / soldats chaussés de leurs longs patins, évoluant rapidement et luttant avec acharnement les uns contre / les autres. Nos skieurs ont montré leur supériorité sur les skieurs ennemis. / Voici prouvé que le sport, qui rend aussi les hommes beaux et forts, n'est plus un luxe, mais / une nécessité quand il est mis au service de la Patrie.
