THEY climb aboard their loaded truck at sundown, fifteen mQes behind the lines:' They rumble through the winding streets, out on the white road that leads to Germany I The man at the wheel used to be a broker fai Philadelphia. ; Beside him sits an accountant from Chicago. A news paper man from the Pacific Coast b the third. Now they all wear the uni form of one of these organizations. The road sweeps round a village and on a tree b nailed a sign: "Attention! L'Ennemi Vous Volt! The Enemy Sees You!" They glance far up ahead and there, suspended in the evening light, they see a Hun balloon. "Say, we can see him plain tonight!" murmurs the accountant from Chicago. "And don't forget," replies the Phila delphia broker, "that he can see us Just as plain." The packing cases creak and groan, the truck plods 00 straight toward that hanging menace. They reach another village where heaps of stone stand under crumpled walls. , , Then up they go, through the strange silence broken only when a great pro jectile inscribes its arc of sound far overhead. . - They reach a turn. Tney take it They face a heavy, incline. For half a mile it stretches and they know the Germans have the range of every inch of it The mountain over there is where the big Bodies' guns are fired. This incline is their target . The three men on the truck bring up their gas masks to the alert, settle their steel helmets closer on their heads. At first the, camion holds its speed. Then it slackens off. The driver grabs his gear-shift,' kicks out his clutch. The engine heaves and heaves and stalls! ' "Quick! 1 Spin It!" calls' the driver. The California journalist has jumped. He tugs at the big crank. ' c "Wh-r-w-r-r-r-room!" ... The shell breaks fifty yards behind. Another digs a hole beside the road Just on ahead. . , ,. ,t , r,, ; And then the engine comes to life. It crunches, groans and answers. Slowly, with maddening lack of haste, it rumbles on. "Wh-r-r-oom!" That one was dose behind. The fragments of the shell are rattling on the truck. Now shells are falling, further back along the road. And the driver feels the summit as his wheels begin to pick up speed. v Straight down a village street in which the buildings are only skeletons of buildings. He wheels into the court yard of a great sheD-torn chateau. "Well, you made it again I see!" says a smiling face under a tin hat a face that used to look out over a congrega tion in Rochester. "Yep!" says the driver glancing at his watch. "And we .came, up Dead Man's Curve in less than three minutes including one stall! " Later that night two American boys, fresh from the trenches bordering that shattered town, stumble up the stairs of the chateau, into a sandbagged room where the Rochester minister has his canteen. "Get any supplies tonight?" they ask. Youbetl didi" Istbeanswer, "What will you have?" "What's those? Canned peaches? Gimme some. Package of American cigarettes let's see an' a cake of chocolate on' some of them cookies!'' "Goshl" says the other, youngster when his wants are filled. "What would we do without you?" v.t. , , . . You hear that up anddowri the front, a dozen times a night "What would we do without them?" , Men and women in these organiza tions are risking their lives tonight to caYry up supplies to the soldiers; Trucks and camiorMttea are creeping up as close as any transportation b permitted. ; From there these people are carrying up to the gun-nests,- through woods, across open fields, into the trenches. The boys are being served wherever they go. Things to eat, things to read, things to smoke, are being carried up everywhere along the line. With inew troops pouring into France, new supplies must be sent, more men and women by the hundreds must be enlisted They are ready to give every thing.
