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
"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

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
"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."
