THRILLING ESC AP
ARMY OFF GER J
HUGO S DARU
(Hy Associated Press)
Paris. Apr. ll-A prominent French
army officer luis just gone through a
thrilling escape from a prison deten
tion camp In Germany, which par
allels In real life that famous escape
of fiction in which Victor Hugo's hero
look thc phire of the corpse and was
i arrier off to burial.
The oillcer of this recent experi
ence was the military attache at- vien
na up to the breaking out of Hie war.
He joined lita regiment when the war
opened, and In a dash ahead of the
main body of troops was taken pris
oner and sent to a German prison
??anip not far from the Dutch fron
tier. Here, besides the physical hard
ships, two things occupied him close
ly; fir?:, taking careful mental notes,
with the training of a militury at
tache, on German conditions in the
nearby agricultural section; and, then,
The notes on German conditions are
proving valuable, now that the prison
er is lrce. Most information on Ger
man conditions paint a very bad pic
ture, in-order 'to please the French;
authorities. But these notes ure de
signed to Inform rather than to please,
and they show favorable' as well as
unfavorable conditions now prevailing
in Germany. They show German far
mers, with whom the French prison
ors were taken to work. In a pros
perous and contented Btate, with good
crops and normal stocks of cattle,
swine, poultry, etc. In particular it
was noted that horses for farm labor
have not fallen oft' seriously through
the military, requirement for artillery
cavalry horses. But In the entire timo
this officer wus in the German pris
on camp, going daily through the sur
rounding agricultural country, he did
not seo one automobile used for pri
vate purposes, although there were
hundreds of military automobiles. In
general, his observations, us an expert
military observer, were that the in
ternal conditions of Germany, partic
ularly tho farmiug regions, were not
us had been painted; that there was
little evidence of internal exhaustion
and considerable cviderce of prolong
ed moans of resistance
Meantime, pending his observations
and the routine of prison duties, the
officers had noted the daily coming
ani going of a large dumpcart, used
tor cairying away horse manure from
tne cavalry statics to the nearby
fields. The sides of the cart wore
high and rigid, and tho tail piece wa3
removable to let the contents slide
out. It occurred to tho officer that
if he could .be carried out in a load
of manure, and be deposited .under .a
dung-heap In tho fields, ho migiht
work his way to freedom. And so,
with a companion, ho tried lt.
There was the difficulty first of get
ting In tho cart, so that when lt was
I'.rnwn up early in the morning for the
manure to bo thrown aboard, tho two
mon would bo underneath. But this
part they managed, and they were
lying In the cart under a thin covering
nf straw whon the morning cleaning
began. Soon the big clods'of manure
descended In tho wera .over the <sides
uf the cart, and gradually the o nicer
and his companion were pinned down
under a smoking, oweathig, stinking
pile ot manure, six feet deep, with two
German troops on op as it rolled oft
to the fields.
Hero there was another danger be
yond that cf suffocation and stench;
that -when tho cart was dumped the
tor contents would gb Ont first and
the bottom with the prisoners would
come, out on top. - But the Bilde was
even, top and bottom going out to
gether- in a-crash -which left the
Preach officer and.'.bis companion
burled under the dung-heap in the
x.r!dsfc of the field.
J. Thc rest was walting for the fav
orable moment of darkness to let the
two men dig their way out and get in
to the nearest woods. They were
well away. that night, and after ex?
irenic " i ration fruin ?hunger ano ex

boundary only to find sentinels post

frontier, to bar exit or ontry. There
