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

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.
