'‘High Adventure’' by J. N. Hail
Tells of Driving Boche
Two copies of "High Adventure,” a
narrative of air fighting in France by
■lames Norman Hall have been placed up
in the library shelves recently- Mr. Hall,
the author of the book, was a personal
fr.end of Kalph 11. 1.yman and of John
•Mark Evans formerly members of the
School of Music faculty.
Mr. Hall attended Grinnell College in
Grinnell, Iowa, where he was roommate
of John Stark Evans. In 1!H)9 he visited
M. H. Douglass, librarian of the l’Diver
sity. In his book Hall detailed his life
as an aviator and wrote experiences in
driving the boche from the air.

"I was diving vertically on a German
machine when suddenly 1 heard a loud
report and felt something give way. I
saw that all the fabric on the upper
surface of the upper right plane had
tipped off. Luckily, enough of the cloth
on the under surface ht Id to enable me
to keep afloat although the machine lean
ed heavily to one side
“The combat started at about 15.000
feet. When the wing broke I was at d.UOO
feet and about 10 kilometers inside the
German lines. 1 started for home at
cnee, but owing to the broken wing I had
tc keep planing downward. I could see
the lines of trenches only a little dis
tance in front of me and 1 was thinking

only a small incendiary shell. The shell
knocked the motor loose from its frame
and struck without bursting.
Machine Crashes to Earth.
“My machine fell in a sort of nose
spin, but I managed to keep it from
crashing directly nose down. It hit the
ground at an angle of 30 degrees. The
motor spilled out on the ground as I
struck and both of my feet, which were
tangled up in it, were badly twisted.
“I landed near some reserve dugouts,
about three kilometers back of the Ger
man first line trenches. 1 was wedged
into my seat and couldn’t move until
some soldiers lifted me out and carried
- me to a dugout where they gave me
some coffee and bandaged my right foot,
which was giving me a good deal of pain.
“Both my ankles were badly swollen
and it was two weeks before the doctor
could set 'the bones. When at last the
swelling began to go down it was found
that only the right one was broken. The
oones had to be broken again, as they
had begin}.to knit with my foot twisted to
one side. Whew! What a painful opern

was a pleasure in comparison- I was giv

sent on to the hospital nt Saarbrucken.

using crutches but within a week I shall
lie able to walk very well with a cane.

Intercollegiate Games to be a
Feature, Say Coaches Riley
Few mou answered the call for soccer
candidates issued yesterday afternoon
but, as the call c( uflieted with several
important meetings, more men are ex
pected out 'today. Soccer is one of the
regular Varsity sports and deserves the
support of all of the men who have
played the ancient Scottish game, or
would like to learn.
While soccer will come under the work
of Eddie O'Connell the squad last night
was handled by Roy Riley, former hack
on the Crescent Club of Denver, Colora
do. William F. Vance, secretary of the
'll'. M. C. A., was also out last evening
chasing the boys around and reported
that th<’ practice was a great appetite
producer. Mr. Vance is an old hand at
'the game and should lie able to give the
fellows some valuable points.
Uiley. who is an S. A. T. C. man is
one of the best bets among the new can
didates having played on one of the
strongest teams in this country his ex
perience makes him a valuable man for
tin1 Varsity. There are several old soccer
players on the campus this year of for
mer Oregon teams. Herman Lind has
experience while llnseltine Sehmoer and
V illiam Ralston are both clever play
ers. Roy Davidson is unothr who was
out for the last year’s squad, and should
prove valuable this year.
Inter-company soccer will probably
ike up the early part of the training
criod and will be follow'd by inter-colle
giate contests if O. A C. or any other
college in the traveling radius of Oregon
decides to enter teams.
