" drove forward in three columns.
, , The main attack' was aimed at
a. Seicheprey village. American infan
rt trymen supported by machine uns
met the foe in tho streets and narrow
byways and pursued them into the
. wrecked houses. The village had long
ago been evacuated by the civilian
!f population owing to repeated bom
i bardments. The buildings resem
, bling a shattered sepulchre furnished
a dramatic background for the fti-
i? $ agements.
2 Fought With Pistol
J There were , numerous instances of
extraordinary gallantry on thf part
of tne Americans. An infantry offi
cer nicknamed "machine gun," fought
with his pistol alongside of his men
Another after emptying his . auto-
matlc grabbed a rifle from wounded
private and stood In tho open firing
rthrowtng grenades at them.. Other of
ncera showed equal bravery,' ;

Three Americans in charge of a ma
china gun at another point in the bat
lid kept their post, "although they had
been' ordered to retire owing to their
hazardous position. They attacked
two German airplanes and kept firing
until both were down. The airplanes
were flying low in an atempt tor de-;
stroy battery positions. When the
Americans retook the village after
hours of hard fighting they found the
Germans had arranged mine traps,
stringing wires across the streets,
Anyone who stumbled over tlie wire
fet off large boxes of explosives. ,A
wounded German was found in an al
ley groaning and oalling "kamerade."
When Americans approached he
pulled a wire which exploded a num
ber of grenades. The wounded Ger
man was taken to a hospital where he
later died. Two or three mortally
lyounded Germans were captured.
Couriers were compelled to make
their way through a triple bar
rage. One reached headquarters
in hysterical condition and gasped:
"I'm not yellow, am I? You
don't think I'm a quitter because
I act this way. It is my fight you
know. Did I deliver my message
all right? That's good."
Then he swooned.

The fearlessness of the American
