PARIS, Dec. 3. Lieut. Herbert
Hudnut. lute of Princeton and New
York, dropped in on his old outfit the
other day.
He came over in May attached to
an artillery unit. After a few months
he was transferred into an observa
tion balloon organization. He shook
hands all around and expressed the
hope that he might drop in on t!.em
sometime somewhere in France. Dur
ing the strenuous weeks following he
lost track of the old gang. In the
Argonne fight he was observing the
Heinies from his sausage balloon when
a boche bird sailed along and opened
his sausage with a rip of machinegun
bullets. Hudnut took to his parnrn'jte
just in time as the balloon collapsed
in a burst of flame.
In 120 seconds Hudnut landed gent
ly in a treetop and started to shin
I down. From the lowest frond he paus
ed to survey the crowd of soldiers
around the foot of the tree.
"Whatincll you doing up our tree.'
shouted an officer. It was Hudnutt's
old outfit posted under the tree.

Dear Sinter: I received your let'er
of Sept. 1M, day ln-fore ye.tterduy, and
was sure glad to get it. 1 sure enjoj
your leiu-rs very much. Also your
card, which means a lot to me.
I sure will excuse pencil. Letters
l'Mk as eood to we fellows over
here if they are written in pencil as
they do in ink. Also will excuse 'he
jigvling of the desk by the two little
soldiers you said were drilling th.Te
in the room with you. I'll bet they
would sure come over here and give
the Huns all that was in them if they
were grown up. wouldn't they? I
would hate to think that they would
have to be forced to fiht for a ccun
try like our U. S. A.
Yes, 1 got the Democrats you snt
me and I sure gave them a good xo

them I give them to "Monty" to read
and then save until 1 meet Lee Bsn

there they are passed on to other Al

They keep a fellow potted on the do

Am glad that Clinton and Royal are

getting into it.
I have made quite a move since I
wrote you last. Don't remember
where I was when I wrote but guess
I was on the front somewhere, wasn't
I ?' Well, sister, I saw a lot of things
while I was on the front. O course I
can't tell you much about it, and there
are lots of things that I saw that I
wouldn't want to tell you about if 1
could. Some things I want to forget if
I can. I sure know what it is to be
behind a stearing wheel for days and
nizht at a time. Also know what
shells sound like and what gas smells
like. I have seen some dandy air
fights, which are sure interesting to
watch. They have lota- of air fights
on all the fronts.
Did I tell you that I saw Kenneth
Bloom and Geo. Hughes and the Har
old boy that used to drive the truck
for the commission company there:
Bloom and Hughes came over to the
town where I was to see me and whi'e
they were there the Blankety-Blank
Huns dropped a shrapnel in the towr.
right near us which got three of tl e
fellows. A piece lit right at our feet
and Bloom picked it up but droppe-
it at once as it was red hot. Don't
know if he is going to take it home
with him or what but if a fellow tries
to take all the steel home that lights
close to him he is out of luck.
I have also seen Alton Coates
couple of times. He is the same Alton.

Weatherford was in once but didr't
