LITTLE WAR TANK
Thousands Turn Out to Witness
Demonstration, of Machine
That Licked the Huns.
MEETS WATERLOO IN DITCH
After Maneuvering on Streets
Becomes Stuck in Old fce-
i. .' .- -
gara Mill Race.
Last Sunday afternoon "Springfield
received an unexpected' visit of tho
little Whittpet tank' which Is touring
the Northwest for tho purposo of stir
ring up Interest and enthusiasm for
the Victory Loan. It was not general
ly known In Springfield until late Sat
urday afternoon the tank would mako
the trip over from Eugene, but tho
Sim day morning papers ot that city
contained the announcement and
everyone who possibly could lined up
on Main street by 2:30 and eagerly
craned their necks to catch the first
glimpse of the HttlCwar machine.
At 3 o'clock the crowd was i award
ed" by hearing shots at the foot of
Main street, and shortly after the
tank, camouflaged In all the colors of
the rainbow, came lumbering along
at a 4-mIIe pace, followed by a long
line of automobiles and youngsters on
foot which escorted U from Eugene.
At Seventh street a stop was mado
and shortly after the return trip wasf
started, the tank performing num'er
ous maneuvers on the way. At Fifth
street another stop was made, and Mr.
M. C. Bressler mounted the mathlno
tnd made a short address in which ho
stated the reasons for the tank mak
'ng this tour, concluding his .remarks
by introducing Mr. Clarence Likins.
who was In command of the tank
Mr, Likins gave a very Interesting
talk concerning the use made of the
tanks in France, and stated it it had
not been for these little machines the
war would probably have continued
indefinitely, as without them. the In
fantry could not advance in the face
of the intense fire from German ma
chine gun nests which were cleverly
concealed. But with the tanks ad
vancing ahead of the infantry it was
not -difficult to clean out -the Huns,
destroy the barb wire entanglements
and start tho Germans on the run.
Mr. Likins stated they ran so. fast tho
Americans could not keep up with
At tho conclusion of his address ho
asked' if there were any old bulldlng3
In the city the tank could "walk"
through. Evidently there were none,
as he received no reply to his ques.
tion. Ho then stated the tank would
proceed to the old mill race on River
street and show what it could do in
negotiating trenches. The crowd
eagerly followed, and when the tank
reached- tho ditch, which was about
15,-foet deep, it plunged bravely in
went gracefully to the bottom, turned
around and canto back up the bank
with an air of confidence born of
much experience:; Then, just for good
measirro.-it reptJate-d the" 'performance,
but thlsUlme when' it 'started to as
cend the opposite "bank it was unable
to do-so, owing-to tho earth being
wet and soft. Try'a's It would It could
ndt gain lite to. Then it was turned
around' and 'an effort was mado to
crawl out the- way it had entered. But
fnero was -nothing doing tho bank
was 'too soft and slippery. Then tha
driver decided tb try some other point
further'along the ditch. After mov
ing about" 100 feet tho machlno went

stalled and evould not' bo moved In
