GOMPERS ASSERTS KAI E RWIUSTGO TARIS. Sept. 2i5 When the Germsn workers wipe out the present German government, then the workers of America will believe the Germans are ready to talk peace. This. In effect. was tho stand taken here today by Samuel Gompers. president of the American Federation of Labor, accord ing to Humanlte. In the courso of an Interview the American labor leader was asked If, In case the Germsn workers accepted the declarations of the London conference, American labor delegates would meet them. "Yes, If the German workers wipe out the German government," Gomp ers replied. "It would be Insufficient for them to accept the London decla ration with words. They must prove by their acts. Otherwise American workers are determined to go on with the war. Militarism must be crushed.' Gompers said that he believed In. ternatlonal brotherhoods would be the best guarantee against the reappear ance of militarism. He was unwill ing to say that the American Govern ment would give labor a place at the peace table, but he pointed to Presi dent Wilson's sympathy for American worners.

Trlvate V. Raymond Craley, twenty seven years old, of 48 W street north west, member of an American ambu lance corps In France, was wounded by a piece of shell June B and was treated In a French hospital for nine days. In writing of his experiences he says: "I am on poste now, writing by the light of a candle and listening to the French artillery. I received a slight wound above the left knee from a bursting high explosive shell which landed nine paces directly in line with ten' of us. Fortunately the soft earth In our camp caught the greater part of the fragments of the shell and saved our lives. I was in a French hospital for nine days, returning to my section on August 14. I became poisoned from an infected sore, but am fast regaining vay lost strength." Nights Very Dark.' Telling of collecting wounded at night, he says: "Sometimes the nights are eo dark that we cannot even see a man beside us on the seat, and, in fact, one night was so black that I actually could not tell whether my machine wss going backward or forward. It was raining in torrents, and I was soaked to the skin. The roads were In terrible shape, pitted with shell holes, and I was continually out of one and Into another. On that particular night at three different points trees were down and lying entirely across the roam I reached the evacuating station with ray wounded after two hours, covering a distance of ten kilometers. I was a wreck myself from the experience. and could not moe again until day light, as my nerves were all gone. "The French soldier has wonderful courage, and no matter how long we are en route, although we sometimes remain in vie spot for an hour at s time on account of the camions, am munition trains, troops, droves of trarros, artillery, tanks, and every conceivable war device going and coming, they never groan unless very, very severely Injured, or unless we give them an awfully hard bump. Under Heavy Strain. "I broke two front springs in one week. The nervous strain Is terrible. as the driving Is so hard at night." That the ambulance corps is fully occupied, bis next paragraph testi fies: "We did not have our clothes off for two months except at times to tr and sponge off In a bucket of cold water. We have msny French war crosses In ouc section and recommen dations for many more." Craley enlisted in Vay, 1017.
