Gentry, Jr., 19 years old, nephew- of N. T. Gentry of Columbia, has returned to St. Louis following an operation in a French hospital for an injury sustained when driving an ammunition truck near Soissons. He is the son of William R. Gentry, St., of Vernon avenue, St. Louis-. His parents had received no word from him since the cablegram announcing he would undergo an operation. He surprised them when, unannounced, he appeared at their home and greet ed them with "bon soir." In his four months in France he has been mveh of the time under fire. He was in a gas attack, witnessed the bombing by Germans of a French hos pital, was struck by a piece of shrap nel and on his return vojage his ship was attacked by a submarine. He interviewed Germans In the French prison camps. They told him they expected the war to end before spring with Germany defeated. The prisoners said decreasing man-power and the virtual starvation of the Ger man civilian population would force the end. Drove at Mplit. He sailed from New York with the Philips Andover unit and landed at Bordeaux May 8. After his arrival at Paris he was told that a lack of am bulances would make it necessary for hin to drive an ammunition truck. After two weeks training in the French manual of arms and military tactics, he was assigned to a truck. He had had no experience with motors except that gained driving his father's auto-' mobile. Soon after his truck had be come part of an ammunition train running between Soissons and Rheims, he was surprised to find Joseph Desioge, another St. Louis boy, de tailed on his truck. Among the duties of the St. Louis ians was the hauling of shells, hand grenades, torpedoes and detonating fuses to the front. They often haul ed 220-millimeter shells, but more frequently carried 75-millimeter shells. The trucks moved at night except when the fighting was heaviest. They were forced to do this because In day light the German observation bal-i loons would telephone the location of khe trucks to the batteries and a bom bardment would ensue. During one period of heavy fighting. Gentry said,' he drove his truck twenty hours a day i iui ten uaya, now aim men caicmng a few minutes sleep on the truck seat. Struck by Shell. Gentry told of his first sensation when under shell fire. He expressed this by saying that he was "dog-gone scared." He said he was driving his truck in the ammunition train, when a shell dropped about 50 yeards distant, I pieces of it striking him. j "We were so frightened," he said. "that -we all stepped on the accelerator at the same time and it is a wonder that our trucks didn't land somewhere over the German lines. After that, though, the shells dropped near us so frequently that we lost our fear. Once when hauling logs for trench re-enforcements, a German battery opened on us. The French soldiers, who -were unloading the trucks, disappeared quite suddenly, going to their dug outs, but we Americans, probably in a spirit of foolhardincss. remained at our tasks as the shells dropped all about us. The Frenchmen hae be come adroit at dodging and many often save themselves because of their skill in this." M Gentry said he experienced his first gas attack one night when the ammu nition train had been heltcd for a few minutes at Bourget-et-Comin, a vil lage, now in ruins. j "We were eating our lunch when a mountain trumpeter dashed through the streets blowing a "gas call." We rushed for our tool boxes for the gas masks that had been provided. One of the drivers was slow finding his mask and was overcome. After that I always carried by mask on the seat near me and frequentlv had to use it. Germans Despondent. Spare moments were few. Gentry said, but those he had, he used getting interviews around the prison camps. Soldiers and drivers were barred from these prisoners, but he slipped in when a guard he had presented with a pack of cigarettes, looked the other way. Gentry said he could understand Ger man and was able to get the sense of what the prisoners said. They told him that the German soldiers had plenty of food, but the civilian popu lation was suffering for want of it. This condition and Germany's rapidly decreasing man-power would end the war soon, they believed. Some of them said It was a matter of months, but none expected It to last longer than spring. Among the prisoners ho interviewed was a German deserter. He was 45 years old and said he was the father of four children. The prisoner said It was for his family's sake that he had deserted, because he knew it was the Call for Your Check The persons and societies named below are a few who sav ed by buying at .CO-OP last year the entire list of checks is sued to last year's purchasers is on display at the CO-OP, Alpha Delta VI Ilnnicr M.
