Fine Hospital Beady
If he is in the sector northwest of
Toul at the time he is wounded, Pri

largest and best evacuation hospitals
along the whole line. There are eight
operating rooms such as he is in, and
in each there are several teams of doc

can double tho number if necessary.
The place is in charge of an eastern
doctor, a iitltle fellow physically, who
is not very military, so the French
used to say. This mam has arranged
that men like Private Jones have x
rays for half a dozen different dis
eases or infections before he is sent
on, and as tho doctor says, "when a

surprise of hus life. In an ambulance
he is taken to a nearby railroad sid

This is one of several hospital trains
now operated by the American army,

passing big hospitals on the way. fcach
car can hold thirty to fifty invalids,
depending on how many aitting and
how many bed cases thero are. The
train is equipped with electric lights,
electric fans, steam heaters, and all
tho luxuries of hornet. Two of the few
bathtubs in northern France are on
each train, and you can get hot water
by simrply, turning on a faucet.
There are two kitchens on each train
and each is in charge of a colored
chef who knows how to cook American
dishes. Tho train has a staff of nurses
and doctors, and is .in charge OS a med
ical major who thinks his train is bet
tor than any oiiher that ever ran on
tracks anywhere, though Itke specifi
cations call for all of these hospital
trains to be exactly tho same, even
the paper on the luxurious officers'
mess compartment. The medical staff
lives on tone train. They have an oper
ating room on each train, and can care
for all emergency cases properly.
From this moving hospital, Private
Jones is evacuated to a base, hospital
in the rear, whuie he has every atten
tion known to medical science until
he is ready toi go back. Every "dough
boy" and evesy doughboy's mother
can know that Private Jones is; not
out at the fight for democracy when
he is wounded at the iront. The boys
under medical caro appreciate Uncle
Sam's careful planning, and their
brave spirit can be no oettcr expressed
than by the words of the private with

With the American Army ill Lorraine,
May 30. The Germans sent over three
raiding parties during another gas pro
jector attack in a Lorraine sector short
ly after midnight yesterday. Two of
them were virtually wiped out and the
third driven off.
The enemy patrol's object was to'
seek information regarding the result
of the gassing and to take prisoners if
One of the raiding parties, number
ing about 50, was beaten off before it
reached the American lines. The ec
ond managed to get 12 men into the
American tranches. Ten of these were
killed and the others were captured. The
third pnrtv of fifty men was allowed
to walk into an ambush. When the Yan
kees blazed away, the few bodies re
maining unscathed rushed rvllmell for
their own lines. They left the ground
strewn with dead.

German barrage with heavy and effec

Three of tha attacks took place early

The number of boche prisoners tak

Persistent efforts of the German to re
capture the village and heights are in
dicative of the importance they attach
to the heights for observation purposes.
Although they advanced in thick
waves in each attack, only one wave
succeeded in reaching the American
line. This happened about 7 o'clock at
night. The infantry 'and machine gun
ners took heavy toll as the bodies ad
vanced. When the survivors reached the
line they were bayonetted or shot down.
Those who remained fled in disorder.
Artillery smashed all the other attacks.
As tho boche waves advanced, light and
heavy f;uiis laid down a fierce counter
barrage, virtually wiping out the first
and second waves. All the reserve and
support positions also were heavily
