PILE OF 5,000
HUN CORPSES
(Continued from page l.)„
But he lay It across his arm and
opened fire on the trench, killing sev
eral of its occupants.
One of the Huns yelled: "Kama
rad!"
"All right, come out," Brown re
plied, between shots. All of the Ger
mans, numbering nearly a hundred,
dropped their guns and surrendered.
Brown and Plpp again started for
the rear and encountered other
members of their platoon with pris
oners. Brown took charge of them
all. The wood where Brown and the
others had been fighting, was being
shelled continuously. Once Brown
and Pipp were surrounded, but they
fought their way out with automatic
rifles.
At the edge of the wood, Brown's
companions left him to "get some
more Hednles" and he herded his
prisoners along a shell-pitted road
toward the rear, still clutching his
trusty automatic.
Arriving at headquarters, Brown
made an accurate count of his bag for
the first time. There were 159 of
of them, including a major, a captain
and two lieutenants. The sergeant
assured the commander he had a "re
ceipt" 'and turned over a pistol and
a pair of wire cutters he had taken
from the major.
Brown had narrowly escaped death
a numbe of times, as his uniform was
torn with bullets. Early In the fight
ing his pack had been shot from his
back by shrapnel.
Brown's feat was the climax of
dozens of similar episodes. Eight
Americans, captured by the Boches,
were taken to the north side of the
river. They overpowered their
guads, took valuable maps from a
t-erman officer, grabbed a boat and
paddled back.
A single machine gunner saw two
platoons of Huns Advancing. The gun
had been Injured and he was unable
to swerve it to bring them into the
line of fire. Whipping out his auto
matic pistol, he fired several shots,
picking off the Germans on one side
and causing them to alter their
course. This brought them within
range of the machine gun. He then
wiped them out.
Small groups of Germans filtered
through the American lines near
Mezy, but our line was not with
drawn. Instead the Americans Runt
ed down and killed or captured every
one of them.
One American trumpeter took com
mand of his company when the cap
tain became separated from them.
ADVANCING EVERYWHERE.
[By Fred S. Ferguson, United Press
Staff Correspondent.]
WITH THE AMERICAN ARMY IN
THE CHAMPAGNE, July 18, (4:*0 p.
m.)—American troops are still ad
vancing everywhere along the twen
ty-five rrile front where they are co
operating with the French in to
day's gneat counter offensive, as this
is cabled.
At headquarter*, messages were
Incoming in from everywhere, asking
permission to push on farther.
It was essential that the line should
be kept straight and In some In
stances it was necessary to order
the troops to hold back until adjoin
ing units came up.
It is the greatest pursuit of Boches
the Americans have yet engaged In.
Enormous numbers of prisoners have
been taken. It is impossible to es
timate how many.
American airplanes, flying over the
lines, fought the Boches above, while
the doughboys and machine gunners
fought them below. Aerial observers
dashed through the clouds and others
carried back messages.
The surprise not only was com
plete, k)ut the concentration for the
attack was unusually rapid. Field
guns were loaded on truicks and these
dashed up to the lines. The horses
Lines of trucks carrying six and
eight horses apiece have been hur
ried up for the past twenty-fou'
hours.
The German artillery resistance's
was feeble until 7 o'clock, then th«lr
guns opened up, but the Americans
had advanced too far for the en«my
guns to stop them.
Torcy was captured In fifteen min
utes. Belleau fell at 8:20, and Giv
ray half an hour later.
The greatest force of Americans
which has yet participated in a single
gagement, is advancing with the
Frertch )n this offensive, which was
launched at 4:30 this morning.
Eighteen canr.on were captured by
the French and Amereicans at Cour

Latest reports say that the advance
continues everywhere.

first links and subsequent re-routing
of certain Pacific coast trains. It was
pointed out by officials that in many
cases, lines run parallel for distaces
as great as 450 miles. Under competi
tive conditions each road gained Its
share of business. Since the last vest
ige of competition has been wiped out
by federal operations, officials said, the
lines facilities should be utilized 100
per cent. Only by making them into
one double track line can the fullest
result be attained, they declare.
While it is known McAdoo expects*
ultimately to extend the. plan to all
sections of the country. It was be
lieved In some quarters it might mean
the cutting to the minimum of service
on lines built for competition. The
shortest route and the condition1 of the
roads, grades and requirements of the
section only will decide the service
retained, it was hinted.

ture: Am I a coward? What will I do
when I go under fire? Will I run? Will
I stay and fight? Will I be afraid?
Does my doubt indicate that I'm a
coward? Does courage "consist In a
lack of fear, or in dominating the
sense of fear and rising above it?
These questions and hundreds liko
them are being asked by soldiers des
tined for the war. They may ask them
ever so secretly, hardly consciously,
nevertheless they are asking them.
