One of the V. !., by Slater Washburn.

The initials "Y, I." mean "Yankee

and went to France to help whip the
Hun and succeeded.
The modest book that is now under
review impresses by its naturalness,
readable charm and graphic ability to
portray the actual battle scenes lived
by members of a battery of American
Mr. Washburn started as corporal of
the 101st field artillery of the 26th di
vision and left France after taking part
In the battle of Chateau-Thierry to re
turn to this country as an instructor.
Later, he was appointed lieutenant. He
writes also with- plenty of enjoyable
humor. His book bears this inscription:
"To the boys of C battery, 101st field
battery, 26th division, who fought and
died for the great cause, and who now
lie buried beneath the soil of France,
far from home, yet near in spirit to
those whose privilege it was "to serve
with them.' The narrative of service
related by our author begins in April,
1917. and lasts until August, 1918.
The chapter heads are: Boxford to
France; training at Camp Coetquidan;
moving to the front; our first sector
Chemin Des Dames; join the artillery
and walk; in the Toul sector: our loyal
friend and cootie; at the first corps
school Gondecourt; back to the front;
bound for Paris; and, Cha'teau-Thierry
and the second Mama. Lively descrip
tions are given of fun alrmg the march,
with mutual chaff between cannoneers
and drivers of artillery horses.
