Tne earth was pock-marked with gaping eruptions that marked the end of the winged messengers of death, and finis for many defenders of France. Fleeing Poilus glanced momentarily at the American Doughboys pressing reso lutely to the firing line, passed them by as fool Yankees and kept their feet pointed toward the English Chan nel. Getting uncomfortably close was the German horde, forcing onward, they thought, in their last victorious maich to Paris. An American artillery commander led his men into the inferno, and planted his guns in the positions va cated by the French in order to use their range data. The commander of the routed French remonstrated: “It is impossible to remain here; surely you are going to retreat," he shouted at the American officer. "Retreat? Hell, no|” replied the artilleryman. "We just got here."
