was soon after we got out of the last
fight in which we assisted in stopping
the great Uerman advance. This time
we went oift after the Heinies and to
date the squareheads are still immi
giating toward Berlin. Some of the
boys got mussed up a bit, however, and
there were many Huns who missed roll
call aft-r the battle because the ma

instances- At the start when we weut

wait, however, aud the only ones we
got up close to were slated for the cor
oner except those who were unusually
prompt in reaching for the sky with
both hands and offering to be our
"kamerads.'' .
The Huns had their liues infested
with bullet machines w hich sowed the

we immediately went "back to the
