"Our battalion was picked to take, a
very strong maqliine-gun position hel&
by the. Germans," Bauman write?*.
"They, were dug in in a large strip
of woods, and the big rocks, ma^e the
position what looked to me llke^a reg­
ular nest of fortresses.
"It sure was a sight as we marched
serosa an open field in a valley, about
700 yards. There were three wavf|.
We scared the Germans so badly,
though, that they never tried to hold

the boys waded though their machine

"It was the first time *1 heard the
Hun yell •Kamerad!'—which he $yre
did. They thrpw bomb at us, .and
if It kills, us they stick a while kyiger.
If it doesn't kfll us up go their hands

the Boches let us alone."

will join wjthin a week.
Eddie Collins, greatest of ser
od basemen, will soon wear-a
uniform .and be in training for
overseas duty.
There's been 'a lot of criticism
about ballplayers seeking bomb­
proof jobs, but this can be
scarcely be said about a man
who voluntarily poins the "teu

tion of always being in the mid?

work to Be-done.
Collins is~ one of the most re­
markable of present day ball­
players. He has been called the
smartest player in baseball, and.
he is undoubtedly one of tl\e
most fearless.
Eddie broke in with the Ath­
letics back, in 1906. under the
nom de guerre of Sullivan. Fresh
from Columbia, where he had
beep a star, Eddie was assured
of a berth "to fill jthe.shoes of the
.slipping Monte Cross. For two
years he was shifted through the

and a contract calling for $15,

Collins is said to be'the wealth­
iest baseball player. ."Baseball

participated in.

Lacking official details of the British drive, reported in As­

He said since the period elapsed since his last talk, the allies
