Another one of those unfortunate
Sunday automobile accidents occurred
yesterday, something The News re-
grets to chronicle, but which comes
in the order of news chroniclings.
It appears that Lee Brady, J. T.
Clark and O. T. and Dee Clark, sons
of the first-named Clark, were in an
automobile out on the Gober pike,
near Moore’s Chapel. Like a great
many other people who feel the ex-
hillerating effect of having a good
car under thetn, the above named par-
ties concluded to try the speed of
their gasoline burner against that of
another traveller on the pike. The
results were anything but satisfying
with them, although their opponents
seemed to have gotten off without a
scratch.
The car in which Brady and his
companions were riding turned over
and over several times, just about a
quarter of a mile this side of the
former home of Tom Cox, finally
coming up against a barbed wire
fence. Parties who saw the week say
that every wheel was torn off the ma-
chine, and possibly other serious dam
age done to it.
Mr. Brady was badly hurt, and Mr.
Clark seriously injured. , The boys
were more or less injured. _ A1‘ of the
party were taken to Allen Memorial
Hospital, and a report from there
yesterday afternoon stated that the
boys had been discharged, but that
the two men were still there, Clark
getting along fairly well, but Brady
being in a had shape.
There is a moral to every story of
this kind—a moral we should all
heed—but will w ? It is true time
is fleeting, hut there is enough of
it left for us all to “get bv’ without
racing our cars, thus flirting with
death and giving the under’akers a
chance to fatten their averages on
bank deposits, while we furnish the
solo part of the man ahead in a
journey to the churchyard, riding
slow enough in this last time on
wheels.

Artillery firing by both .-ides on
this sector continued' all day.
' On the sector northwest of Toul. a
number of Germans deserted last
n'ght and surrendered to an American j
patrol in a certain wood. The Ger-
mans approached the American? j
shouting, “Don’t shoot.”
The prisoners were turned over to
the trench. Much information of
value lyas obtained from tin desert-
ers, who said they were “fed up" with
the war and decided they would
rather be prisoners. Included in the
information obtained from the men
was the statement that during the gas
projector attack against the. American
lines on Feb. 27, 900 projectors were
emphiyed. One-half the projectiles'
tired fell within the German lines and
the gas overcame many of the Ger-
mans. The next day, according t<5
the deserters, eleven Germans Were
killed and thirty wounded wiiile tak-
ing out the dead.
American Inteligence officers are in-
clined to doubt the story regarding
900 projectors.. American -information
is that only seventy-five were used.
*An American patrol last night en-
tered the enemy first line and re-
mained there six hours,- but did not
see any of the enemy. It is reported
that the Germans recently nad con-
structed trenches that are concrete
half way up inside. -
Great activity continues held ml the
enemy lines. Within the laid four
days a number of rock crushers and
concrete mixers have been brought up
and there are signs that the Germans
i.nteniLto construct a number, of new
pill boxes over the American front.
‘Several trains of material have ar-
rived at towns in the German lines
during the la^t twenty-four hours.
