Sam Le Fevre, Who Rescued
Officer, Home With Niece.
Portland Lieutenant, With
Division, Knocked Down
Shell, Unconscious 2 Days.

Just a few days after Dr. Sam Le
Fevre of Portland landed at Brest
with the iZd division in the fall of
1918 he made a trip down to the
dock to look after his baggage. Un
expectedly he came upon two negro
tevedores who were browbeating an
elderly Frenchman, who was none
other than the officer in charge of
the port. The American medical lieu
tenant went to the rescue and in his
gratitude the commander of the
French naval base asked him to visit
his home.
That was the beginning of the doc
tor's romance and he is now home
with .a pretty French bride, formerly
Miss Marie Gourmelon of Brest and
niece of the port officer.
Doctor Thrice Wounded.
Dr. Le Fevre and his bride reached
Portland October 10 and are patrons
at the Morton apartments, where Dr.
Le Fevre's mother is living. She had
been in the east, ttut returned to this
city with the young couple. Her son
enlisted in the medical reserve and
went overseas in September, 1918, in
time to take part In the Argonne and
St. Mihiel drives, and spent six months
on the Rhine.
The young man was engaged in
active field hospital work, following
the infantry and often going over the
top with the boys. He was wounded
three, gassed once and had a
number of narrow escapes. One of his
most exciting experiences overseas,
occurred two hours before the armis
tice was declared, when he was stand
ing in a basement just outside of
Sedan waiting with 60 men for the
news of peace. He was standing with
his back to a wall conversing with
one of his soldiers when a shell came,
over the split above his head, slicing'
his companion in half. Thirty men
were killed and 25 wounded.
Sight la Horrifying-.
"It was the most horrible thing I
ever saw," Dr. Le Fevre said yester
day. "I stood there for fully a minute
taking in that awful blood spattered
eight when a curtain of black dropped
over my eyes and I woke up two
days later in a hospital with a dread
ful pain in my head."
Among the souvenirs the officer
brought home is a sawtooth bayonet
taken on October 1 at Exermont. The
doctor ' was working among big
clumps of brush and had just dressed
a wounded man when he heard loud
. calls for help on the other side of the
thicket. He slipped around to a point
of vantage and saw a boche killing
wounded men with the bayonet. He
already had done away with five. As
the doctor was about to pull his gun
the man he had been dressing came
up and shot the enemy. Among other
relics Dr. Le Fevre has a cap shot off
his head twice by German bullets, a
vase made from a shell etched with a
nail and compass by a member of his
company. Another of his men made
him a wooden stiletto carved With a
piece of glass and a broken knife in
an old mill, where the soldiers were
Brlda Is Orphan.
Although the 42d division returned
to the United States last April, the
lieutenant was kept in France in base
hospital work. He was married on
July 28 at Brest at a very unosten
tatious ceremony. His bride is an or
phan and had made her home with
her uncle. She had four brothers in
the service, one of them being killed
early In the war. "When the doctor
was wounded and in the hospital at
Brest she was able to spend much
time with him. Beforesailing he was
stationed two months at camp hos
pital 33 in the port.
Pupils Display Home Work.
"Exhibit day" proved a great sue
cess In the Lents school, when the
home work of more than 300 boys and
g-lrls was put on display last Friday.
Home industry work has been encour
aged by the teachers and principal.
and displays of poultry, rabbits, gar
dening, canning, baking and sewing

the best in each class. A large crowd
of interested patrons visited the ex
hibit during the afternoon and many
compliments were given the faculty
and pupils for their efforts in the
MacDowell Club to Meet.

Tou'll never know how quickly a
bad cough can be conquered until you
try this-famous old home-made rem
edy. Anyone who has coughed all
day and all night will say that the
immediate relief given Is almost like
magic. It is very easily prepared,
and really there Is nothing better
for coughs.
Into a pint bottle put 2 ounces
of Pinex; then add plain granulated
eugar syrup to make a full pint. Or
you can use clarified molasses, honey,
or corn eyrup. instead of sugar syrup.
Either way the full pint saves about
two-thirds of tbe money usually epent
for cough preparations, and gives you
a more positive, effective remedy. It
keeps perfectly and tastes pleasant-
children like It.
Tou can feel this take hold in
stantly, soothing and healing the
membranes In all the air passages. It
promptly loosens a dry, tight cough
and soon you will notice the phlegm
thin out and then disappear alto
gether. . A day's use will usually
break up an ordinary throat or chest
cold, and it Is also splendid for bron
chitis, croup, hoarseness and bron
chial asthma.
Pinex is a most valuable concen
trated compound of genuine "Norway
pine extract, the most reliable remedy
for throat and chest ailments.
To avoid disappointment ask your
druggist for "2 ounces of Pinex"
with directions and don't accept any
thing else. Guaranteed to give abso
lute satisfaction or money refunded.

Attempt to Transfer Vitality Not
Made In Portland.
An operation to transfer interstitial
glands from a young to an old man in
the effort to transfer vitality, similar
to the operation reported performed
at San Quentin penitentiary Friday,
has not been tried In Portland or Ore
gon, according to Portland surgeons.
The glandular theory of virility and
life is still In an experimental stage,
they declare although operations
similar to the one at San Quentin are
not new. This theory Is held to by
a certain school of physicians, but has
not yet reached the etate where it
finds general acceptance, they say.
Dr. A. E. McKay said yesterday that
the operation as reported at San
Quentin was an experiment. He said
that Dr. G. F. Lydston of Chicago was
