Wounded Mongrel Gave His Life
To Save Belgian Babe From Hun
Would I*ike to Die as the Brave Tramp Canine
Died, Beside the Orphaned Belgian Child
Who Was Finally Rescued by Tommies,
and Who Gave Bummer a Hero's Grave, j
? i
(Old English Sheepdog Who|
Came to America from the Bat
tlefront to Train Dogs for U.
S. Army Work.)
When my time comes, I'd like
:o die like Bummer, the tramp.
He was just a dog?a timorous
little outcast, without home or!
pedigree, and with just one friend, <
But he gave his life for that
friend, a little Belgian child, or-1
plianed by the wolfish Hun.
And Bummer will be remeni-'
bored after many a prouder dog's
bones are rotting in obscurity.
Bummer?so the story goes in
the trenches?had taken /refuge ii\
his little friend's home when the
(German shells began to demolish
"a Belgian village. He'd cotnc in
.?ith his tail between his legs,
scared stiff.
"? Just as he thought he'd found
refuge from , that crashing terror,
the walls tumbled about his ears
under-a direct hit.
Everyone in the house wasj
killed except the baby and the i
cowardly dog. Tlicse two were |
buried under the debris, the girl I
uninjured, the dog wounded.
The child began to scream. It
scrwned a long time before it;
stopped. By and by Bummer's j
flanks bepame calmer and he |
crawled through the wreckage to j
liis only friend.
All he could do by way of re-1
assurance?and he didn't have any j
too n\uch himself?was to lick thV
little girl's face. That seemed
to comfort both of them.
Twice it got light and dark?
:ind Bummer was getting terribly
hungry and thirsty. Bummer, j
being a tramp, knew how to rustic
food. But when he started to
creep away, his little friend pinned j
tinker the timbers, began ^ream
ing again. So the dog returned j
to lick her face and hands. I

Huns Out-Hunned By U. S.
Destructive War Flame
Huns in Franco are facing Yankee "frightfulness," in the
shape of a fan of flame loo yards in length and 80 yards in
spread that wipes out every living thing within its scope.
The flame of the device is practically invisible in day
time, burning a light blue color like the flame of a gas stove
and shooting out from the combustion box with a terrific force
that shrivels up a man like a withered leaf. With one of these
devices a company of men may be wiped out in^an instant.
While not many of these machines are in use as-yet, a
small number having been sent over from the War Department,
it is hoped that the effectiveness of those shipped will justify
large future shipments.
The Germans are puzzled by the devicr, whose action is
so radically new that they are unable to determine the prin
ciple that actuates it. Still, their perplexity may be said to be
justifiable, as the device was discovered by accident in the
course of experiments by an officer of the Gas and Flajiu
I Corps. None of the experts of the corps have as yet- been
| able to find out the reason for its terrific action, which literally
blasts every atom of life in its neighborhood out of existence.
A score of these machines protected from German gun fire,
it is believed, could stop any charge and aid in the delivering
| of an offensive that could not be checked.

Harvard Wins Ball Game
Played by War Work
ers Here.
Son* of Harvard and Yale in Wash
ington yesterday paused in their war ^
work and renewed the battle for
supremacy on the athletic field that
occurs wherever there are sons of
Harvard and Yale.
The Crimson of fair Harvard float
ed victorious over the Blue of old Kli
at the end of the seven-inning base
ball game that was played on the
Monument lot Harvard, off to a fly
in* start with a five-run lead in the
first inning, never was In danger, and
eleven of her men had crossed the j
plate when the game was over. Yale,
battling hard, could only score three
runs. Those were made in the last j
two innings.
So long as the game lasted there j
were two camps. But when the last
man was out the rivalry disappeared |
and following a swim in the municipal
bathing pool, a buffet supper was |
served to them in the Hotel Washing
If the old-time speed was lacking
on the diamond, enthusiasm made up
for it. On the mound for Harvard
was Capl Arthur Sweetser, of the '
Signal Corps. Ordnance was repre- I
sen ted by CapL Dwight Partridge,
who performed in Yale's outer gar
den. For the honor of the Navy.
Ralph Horn blower, of Harvard, ac
cented every chance without an error.
His name suggests that he might
have lived in Boston before he dis
covered Washington. The Food Ad
ministration boasted of Bundy, of
Yale, end Harding and Gieason. of
Harvard. The Shipping Board had
no reason to regret the work of Am
berg, who towered at first base, and
scored a run in spite of the Yale ex
ortat.on^to -get the biff one. " Yale
bad three majors in the outfield, and
the "oldest living graduate" on first
base. He was Henri de Slbour. jr.

committees were Walter R. Tucker
