I Two hundred battle-scarred eterans, many of them Just recovered from wounds, hae arrived at Humphrejs to speed up the training of the fight ing engineer units here These men, 110 of whom are com missioned and the rest high-ranking non-coms, hae alread been assigned to commands at this camp, each regl ment drawing a large quota All of them were members of the American expeditionary force, and come to Humphreys direct from the western front. Nearly all of the men near two gold stripes.

Tbty bring hack to the mess halls and barracks of Humphrejs iId descriptions of the scenes on the battle-Swept fields of France Some or them were in the midst of the second battle of the Marnc. Their regiments wer In the fight sedily from July IS to July 25. and drove the Germans back a little oer twelve miles, at which stage of the game other en gineer divisions and engineer troops came In and took their places and kept the Germans moving In the gen eral direction of Berlin, while the troops that were relieved followed, ready to Jump in again , when the other outfits got tired. ight and day the) fought at one moment cordurojlng the muddy road-. which led through the -woods, and thenext grabbing their rifles to beat orttan enemy counter attack. Practically all of the territory oer whfch the engineers fought at the second battle of the Marne has been rained by shell-craters and trenches Pof.dajs after .the fighting the coun trjy hereabouts was strewn with dead ana. mangled bodies, and bodies of horjees, wrecks of wagons, cannon and equipment of every kind The beau tiful landscape and forests have been swtpl by artillery and machine gim flrrfj until nothing Is left but stumps and wreckage, -grain fields trampled Into dust, the earth pitted with huge feheil holes, some forty feet across ana; twenty feet deep. rl Dead t Burled Often the dead are not buried for fevyral dajs. When the engineers w'cfe not busy on road vork as ln farjlry, they were kept bus) burjl"S the dead men and animals. One bat talion buried thirty horses) of which nine lay within seventy-five vards of cih other. None of these men who haro been through this hell will be norry when the war Is over, but they have the spirit or true soldiers and hajje no desire to remain In this coirn trjs even temporarily, until it Is all over and Germany well licked. Engineer units, and in fact, the wijple army, needs more troops. Thej liaje been hoping to be able to push the Germans over the Rhine this win tefj but are afraid they won't have enough men to do that until spring.
