Major Austin B. Richeson, who com
manded one of the battalions of the
364th infantry in the reat drive made
by the 91st division just before the

honor at a breakfast tendered him by
his newspaper friends at the Portland

the time he was wounded. He also
exhibited the bullet which had been
shot from a Boche machine gun and
which struck him just below the shoul

by the men in the Wild west division

and when the second wave came up to
a point taken by the first this man
was found loading himself with sou
venirs. He had no protection whatever
but he had the love for souvenirs.
What he did with them no one knows.

the personal supervision of Richard vv.
