CARRIER PIGEON IS
HERO AT VERDUN
With the French armies, Nov. 14.-
A carrier pigeon was one of the he-
roes of the /most striking episodes
of the battle of Verdun. During the
siege of the fort of Vaux, Command-
ant Raynal had no other means of
communicating with the exterior.
During the fierce fighting around the
Thiaumont farm, contradictory re
ports reached the rear as to the occu-
pation of the position. The carrier
pigeon was the only means by which
the offileers in command could learn
the exact situation.
While the Germans were making
one of their strongest attacks, all the
telephone lines were destroyed and
the enemy's curtain fire made the use
of couriers impossible. Reinforce-
ments were required to hold a posi-
tion with no means of communicat-
ing with the rear until Lieutenant
Colonel Girardin sent several pigeons
back to the headquarters where they
arrived in 20 to 25 minutes and the
reinforcements were promptly sent
When the Germans made a violent
effort to take the position of Froid-
terre, Captain Dartiges, in command
there, was cut off from the rear. At
9 o'clock in the morning he sent a
pigeon back to announce that the
enemy was within 500 yards of the
works. At 10 o'clock he announced
by the same means that the position
was surrounded by the enemy. At
11 he informed the staff that the sit-
uation was critical but that the garri-
son would fight to the last man. Thus
kept in touch with the situation, the
staff was able to take steps that re-
sulted in breaking of the line around

Practical work began in earnests
for the S. A. T. C. and signal corpsr
yesterday, when they took part in the
sham battle at the signal corps field.r
This battle was a skirmish planned
to bring into conflict two armies
which had been operating about Annt
Plans by Lieutenant Bolton
The details for the fighting were<
worked out by Lieut. Edward D. Bol-£
ton. The "red" army, coming from
the west, was supposed to have occu-
pied Ann Arbor on Tuesday night+
and was preparing to move on far-
ther west and take Ypsilanti. The
'blue' 'army came from Ypsilanti and
had entrenched itself on the east
heights when the foe assailed its1
trenches, charging down from Ob-
servatory hill in open formation,'
across "No Man's land" in full at-1
tack against the defenders' trenches.
After several counter attacks, they
were finally repulsed and the "blue's"
position was saved.
About 1,500 men took part in the
battle. It was directed from the tow-
er on the headquarters staff building
by Lieut. G. I. Bach, who was in tel-
ephone communication at all times
with various outposts and important
points over the fleld. The flanking
parties and locations which were not
in the telephone line were reached
by signal men with flags.
During the battle the signal corps
men put up poles and ran a com-
plete telephone line down one of the
west roads with the aid of some of
the big army trucks. The work was
done with great speed. Other trucks
were used as 'tanks to support one
of the attacking parties. Owing to
the soft ground they could not do effi-
cient work, but they served to add
to the realism of the affair.
A few men were detailed for stretch-
er and first aid work, and did other
miscellaneous duty about the
"blues'" trenches. However, most Qf
the participants were too interested
in the battle to play wounded, so the
stretcher bearers were not in great
It had been planned to use blank
cartridges in the rifles, but none were
obtainable at the time of the skirm-
ish. This realistic element will prob-
ably be used in future battles.
-Moving Pictures Taken
A large crowd witnessed the fight
from Observatory hill and other po-
sitions around the field. A Ford mo-
tion picture man was on hand and
took about 1,000 feet of film These
picturs will be shown next week at
the local theaters and perhaps at a
special performance for the S. A. T.
ART MASTERPIECE SUFFERS
FROM AIR RAID PROTECTIONS
Milan, Nov. 14.-A heating appara-
tus powerful enough to force heat
through a pile of sand bags twelve
feet thick and to dry without scorch-
ing the wall behind is needed to pre-
serve one of the world's master-
pieces, "The Last Supper" of Leon-
arda da Vinci which is painted on the
wall of the church of Santa Maria
delle Grazie. Tue dampness which ac-
cumulates in the sand necessary as a
protection from air raids is fast fad-
ing the colors of the pictures, already
damaged by time.
The restoration necessary for Leon-
ardo's picture is unsuited to the fres-
coes of Luini and other masters paint-
ed on the same wall. How to give
each set of masterpieces the treat-
ment required and still guard against
the danger in the air is the problem.
So far the experts of the Italian min-
istry of fine arts have been unable to
find a solution.
