ipparently thinking a rnld was Im

at the point where the lines are clos

over the American first line.
In the American lines, It waa
thought n Herman raid was In prog

a barrage over the ! 1 man trenches.

About the same time French tfOOBt
on the American flank obaerved four
Cierrnans cutting the barbed wire de

off, capturing the whole pitrty.

set an eaiimplo for courage and valor.
