In the assembly of the league of nation! at the sessions jatt ttpchiitfi at Genera, there was a strong tendency to attempt to limit the power ana iniiuence of the council, which is really a bateau of the Britiah empire, the administration hew: shared by France.

Holland is another country with which the United States of the future ought to promote closer relations. A wonderful country and a waaderfal people, these Dutch have through the centuries demonstrated a doughty inde pendence that appeals strongly to the American imagination. Spain ia entirely friendly to he United States. Span will welcome American business snea and American capital.

Traversed the snare of three or four miles between the jump-off trendies of 12 September and the line five days later when the Germans were still try ing their beet to prevent the Ameri cans from making their gains secure, and est their own side were digging in for another long stay. Crossing what had been the four-year intrenched positions of the enemy and what bed been Xo-Man's-Lsuw the thought constantly crowded in that the whole thing was utterly .impossible: men simply could not have advanced over such a frijrhtiul place in the (ace of des Derate enemy resistance. But they did, somehow, do it, and there is not one who can tell now now ne got on the other side of that stretch.

While all this rezion showed the effects of our ar tillery fire, it was asserted that the wire had to be cut by the attacking echelons or sot owr in some way: there were some wonderful instances of personal heroism m this phase of the advance. The Germans had been in here a long time and were makinc themselves at- home as if thev never expected to move. Faesmg into tne weoos oejona tae open country we found many evidences of the Germans' hard fighting after hav ing bees taken by surprise. Meals oa taUea, barely touched; clothing aad personal and official papers scattered about every which why, letters half finished, personal portraits and keep sakes wrapped in dirty paper along with bread and pocket prayers or song books; any amount of ammunition for small arms and emplaced artillery; rows of helmeis in a little shop where some German had been idling his time decorating them for his fellow soldiers I sorts of weird camouflage de- Mens in barbaric colors, and had been forced to drop his brushes and flee, the paint still wet on the steei bonneta. the artist's work half finished; in one rather elaborate command post, a well built cabin of several rooms with glass in tbe windows, there stood, on a table under a window, a little Christ mas tree, perhaps 20 inches high, all decorated with fairies and stars and tinsel colored paper chains and figures this was September, and maybe the little tree had been there not one year bat two or three. Through theae woods infantry men of our division had fought their way with heavy lo-ses three das before, but the area waa still under constant IieraasiBg fire and the work of dear ing out German snipers and concealed machine guns, and burying the dead, had not been finished. I saw many naburied German dead through these woods aad not a few American deed lying where they fell. Under a German observation poet in a tree lay three German corpses ; some useful American sbarpshootiag bad been done there which had probably saved many a good Texas and Okla homa life. German machine gun nests were indicated by the corpses that lay ear, Germans and Americans both. On a road, half a dozen corpses lay head to foot in the ditch, face dawn in the slime, four Germans, two Ameri cans somebody bad taken time to push them over out of the way of the carte, but no burial sauad bad come by them yet. The battle-dead, after a abort time, lose almost all resemblance to human beings; some, depending on how they are hit, retain lifelike features, but generally, and soon, they seem te shrivel 'into little piles o( foul rags suggesting nothing that ever lived and breathed. Through the thickets, I came upon tie queer shapeless things, ia xtampy black boots and field gray, ot khaki and putts, all soggy in the rain, almost lost sight of already. We were walking along one of the Cerman narrow gage railways when we heard the familiar screaming of tbe 77's comine our way from the enemy lines. The shells passed pretty cjose overhead aad exploded 2a or 30 yards beyond us. As we walked the shells seemed to Be following us, com ing at regular intervals of a few sec onds and each time a little farther on in the direction we were walking. Just let them fall a little short and we might be annoyed. f started to go in the direction the shells were coming from, but at the same moment, the Gentian gunners de cided te shorten their range a little nnd tbe shells commenced to explode on the other side of me. This sort of game wa3 a favorite with the Germans after they had been driven out of any area. They liad the whole thing mapped and they tried to harass all lines of communication, command posts, hospital, watering places, and every spot where they had reason to think our people would con gregate. This happened several times while I was in these woods. It was in teresting to try to estimate from the tune the thing" played just what sort I ot curve it was loiiowing in its uigni and where it would light. There were just enough to be interesting but not enough to bo seriously disturbing.

The sergeant said they had drawn the enemy's artillery fire sc many times they had decided to wait tfll dark and then set up their guas. It was not a specially healthy place; this day a bad gas attack had beea made near here, there had been a good deal of shelling, and aoate of our ambulance-; had been shelled and drivers killed. Going back by another route, we saw big shells bursting in the road not far ahead of us, aad at oae time i hen smaller shells bcoaa te drop in our path behind and berate us we saw soldiers by the read hastily adjust their gas masks and eaw eae fall on hie face. We were ia a thieenr aad the driver asked me what we would better do. I said it waa ao more in viting behind us than ahead aad told him to go ahead through the sup posedly gassed area. We both held our breath and kept going and nothing happened. This foUo-sed the flight of a German airman wholes me down pretty close to the ground aad skated along above the road popoine away with his ma chine gun. It may hare beea a signal to his artillery. Round ing a curve in the road we eaw a daeed car which was doubtless the German's objective, for the inference waa it was either a geatecal or a sec-ad lieutenant inside in either ease worth teasing. This road, ia what waa currently called Death valley, aad the crass road from V3aey ap the hill toward Key-tn-Haye, wen favorite targets for .the Germans for many days after the big attack, indeed for the entire month during which the (0th division re mained in tot sector.
