THIS STARTS THE STORY
In tho summer of 1917 Maria
Botclikareva formed the Battalion
of Death, a woman's fighting1 unit
in the Russian army, and a peasant
Slrl thus stepped into tho interna
tional hall of fame. This is her
story. In earlier installments she
told of tho hardships of her child
hood, the brutalities of her married
life and the realization of her wish
to become a soldier. She told of
battles fouRht and won, of tho de
moralization of tho army following
the overthrow of tho Czar. It is
her desiro to shame tho men Into
action that prompts the formation
of tho Battalion of Death. Bolshe
vists seek to undermine discipline by
forcing her to appoint n soldiers

slty upholds them and General To
loytzev laclts courage to oppose. But
Botchkareva will have nothing to

AND HERE IT CONTINUES
THE following morning I spent at
the window with my head bandaged
watching my girls drill. I felt steady
enough to go with Rodzianko to the
luncheon. He called beforo noon and
drove mo to the Winter Palace. In the
reception room there I was Introduced

At this moment Kerensky appeared.
Wo aroso to greet him. He shook
hands with Kornilov, Rodzianko and
me. The War Minister was in good
humor and smiled benignly at me.
"Here Is a little hard-head. I never
saw one like her," Kerensky pointed
at me. "She took it into her head
not to form a committee and nothing
could break her will. One must do her
justice. She Is a sticker, holding out
all alone against us all. She foolishly
stuck to tho argument that 'there
ain't such law.'"
"Well," Joked Rodzianko In my de
fense. "She Isn't such a fool. She is
perhaps wiser than you and I to
gether." We were then asked Into the dining
room. Kerensky was seated at tho
head of the table, I at Its opposite end.
Rodzianko was on Kerensky's right,
Kornilov was on my right. There

The conversation was carried on
mostly In a foreign tongue and I
understood nothing. Resides, I had
my troubles with the dishes and table
etiquette. I did not know how to

Finally that day arrived. The girls
were In high spirits. My heart beat
with anticipation. The battalion arose
early. Every soldier had a new uni
form. The rifles were spick and span.
The atmosphere was one of a holiday.
We were all cheerful, though nervous
under the weight of the responsibility
of the day.
At 9 In the morning two bands ar
rived at our gates. They were fol
lowed by Captain Kuzmln, assistant
commander of the Petrograd military
district, with Instructions fo rthe bat
talion to be at the St. Isaac Cathedral
at 10 o'clock In full military array.
We started out almost Immediately, led
by the two army bands.
The movement of people In the direc
tion of the cathedral was enormous.
The entire neighborhood waa lined up
with units of the garrison. There
1 were troops of all kinds. Even a body
, of Cossacks, with flags on the tops of
tneir spears, was mere, a group oi
distinguished citizens and officers was
on the stairs leading to the entrance
of the church. There were Kerensky,
Rodzianko, Mlllukov, Kornilov, Polovt
zev and others. The battalion saluted
as we marched Inside of the huge edi
fice. The officiating persons were two
archbishops and twelve priests. The
church was filled to overflow. A hush
fell on the vast gathering as I was
askfld to step forward and give rny
name. I was seized with fear, as If In
the presence of God Himself. The
standard that was to be consecrated
waa placed In my hand and two old
battle flags were crossea over it, hid-

standard to a woman.
It was not customary to inscribo tho
name of a commander on tho flag of
a military unit, ho explained, but the
namo of .Maria Botchkareva was em
blazoned on this standard, which, in
case of my death, would bo returned
to tho cathedial and never used by
another commander. As ho spoko and
said tho prayers, in tho course of
which ho sprinkled me threo times
with holy water, I prayed to the Lord
with all my heart and might. The
ceremony lasted about an hour, after
which two soldiers, delegates from the
First and Third Armies, presented to

with inscriptions on the cases, express

He also kissed me and was followed

Tho high officials departed and Gen
eral Polovtzev took charge for the
rest of tho day. I was too overcome
to regain my self-possession quickly.
I was lifted In tho hands of General
Polovtzev and General Anosov first.
Then some, officers of Junior ranks car

tho ovation continued and the cheers

thousands of Russian soldiers, as

than three days before leaving for the

member of tho battalion received full

Corporal Charles F. Bucchvlcr Refused to Give Up Fight When He
Flunked on Motors iVoto He's Recognized and Recom
mended for Position in Aerial Mail Service
This article mas written for the Eve
ning Public Ledger by Henry M. Xccly,
a J'hlladelphian who Is engaged in re
construction work abroad.
Covuiloht. 1019, by IMitillo LcAotr Co.
London, March G.
WHKN the war Is finnlly over nnd
the United States Postofflce Depart
ment organizes Its permanent nerlal mall
service, there Is one Philadelphia boy
at present lri khnki who Is determined
to be among the first postal flying men.
Ho is Corporal Charles F. Buecheler, a
Glrard College boy, whoso home Is at
3002 Aramlngo avenue.
Buecheler tried In vain to get into the
flying game before ho came over here.
In England, however, luck was with him
nnd he has had lessons from a British
captain who was so impressed with his
ability that he recommended Buecheler
to the American commanding officer for
assignment to flying instruction.
Buecheler Is now stationed at the
American aviation headquarters. 35
Eaton Place, In this city, where Lieutenant-Colonel
William Larned, tho for
mer tennis champion, Is In chnrge.
When the United States entered the
war Buecholer went to the first officers'
training camp at Fort Niagara and was
almost ready for his commission when
he mannged to get a transfer to the
school of military aeronautics for flying
officers. He attended the courses at
Princeton and the University of Texas,
but In the final examinations he, with
about 80 per cent of the students, flunked
on motors. Two weeks afterward the
motor course was cut in two and the
men were allowed four weeks moro to
pass, but this did no good to Buecheler
and the others who lvid flunked and lost
their chantts of a commission as 11 lug
Many of those who thus dropped out
returned to civil life discouraged. But
Buecheler had become hopelessly fas
cinated with the flying game and civil
life no longer appealed to h'ni. So ho en
listed as a private In the air service
and went out to Kelly Field for training.
In two weeks- he was placed In an
overseas squadron and sent to Long
Island, prepared to sail for France, and
It looked rs though hsl. dream of seeing
action was about to come true. But
some one In the squadron developed
scarlet fevbr the day before they were
to move and the camp was quarantined.
By the time the ban waa lifted the imme
diate need in France wob filled and
Buecheler's squadron was sent to Eng
land. In the, aviation camp at Fcltwell
Buecheler luckily met a British captain
who took a great liking to him. After
they had become well acquainted. Buech
eeler confided his flying ambitions to
the captain who proved not only sym
pathetic but virtually helpful.
"I'll take you up and give you some
lessons myself some day when the rush
Is over." said the captain.
Buecheler thanked him but did not
really expect anything to come of It.

one second-class passenger coach. We
boarded tho train under orders to pro
ceed to Molodechno, the headquarters
of tho Tenth Army, to which the bat
talion was assigned.
But one day the captain sent for him
and Buecheler went to the flying field
to find a machine ready, a flying suit
there, for him and the captain waiting
to take him up.
"I am going to try you out," said tho
captain. "I can soon tell you whether
you have the stuff In you.
And so the corporal got his first les
Bons. After that, the captain took him
up whenever he could find time and one
day, whlde the lesson wns In progress,
the captain, speaking through the phones
that connected them, said, "now, don't
get nervous. I'm going to let you handle
the machine alone. Ready? Take her."
And, to Buecheler's nstonlshment, he
saw tho captaln'ralse both hands In the
air and found that he alone was guiding
the great machine through the air. He
flew It for nearly an hour, getting In
struction and encouragement from time
to time over the phoneB, and when they
landed the captain patted him on the
back and said enthusiastically, "You'll
do, my boy."
The very next day, the captain went
to tho American commanding officer
and urged that Buecheler be transferred
to a flying status. The American offi
cer agreed to recommend the lad and
the papers were going through when the
armistice was signed.
Buecheler Is still pushing these papers.
