Portland, Ore., Oct. 21. Oregon was
first informed that an Orcgou officer
commanded tie American regiment that
did much to break up Jhe German ad
vance towards Paris at Chateau Thierry
when it read a mail story from Webb
Miller, released for UuiteVPies3 papers
Colonel MacAlexander, now a briga
dier general, commanded the regiment
which .has now become known .as the
"rock of the Marne". He was for
eiilit years commandant at Corvallis,
Ore., and his Oregon friends are legion.
Miller's siory told how MacAlevxan
der, afler arranging his Hues of Cefense,
went dow on the river bank himself
and took pet shots at the Germans with
a rifle. This incident wa9 typical of
the spirit o f .he little colonel, his
friends say. . .
.Miiler describes how this regiment,
fresh from the training camps, stood off
nttack after attack by two German
"shock" divisions in throe days and
nights for terrific figting. The Frenth
high com in a lid has cited the regiment
for the regimental croix de guerre, as it
was brigaded with the French.

officers and men read:
