deeply interested in the following
glowing tribute to the memory of the
late Richard Hall of this city. The
article from which the passage is
taken appeared in a recent number
of the well known Revue des Deux
Monds, and was wri'tten bydthe dis-
tinguished author and lecturer Anatole
Le Braz.
After having spoken in a. general
way of many young Americans who
had devoted themselves to the cause
of France, the author continues: "I
may be permitted to bow reverently
before the memory of one of them. I
had met him four years ago at Dart-
mouth college in the wild and poetic
mountains of New Hampshire. He
was then only a freshman student. On
Christmas morning of 1915 as he was
driving an ambulance car along a
steep road, not far from Hartmann-
Weilerkopf, he was struck down by a
German shell. The landscape through
which he passed must have recalled
to him more than once the natural
features of New Hampshire.
"He sleeps now by the side of a
French officer who was killed the
same morning, in an Alsatian valley
which has been recaptured by us. The
inhabitants of that valley have taken
it upon themselves to deck his grave
with flowers until it is possible to re-
turn his remains to his family. The
cnly inscription upon that grave con-
sists of these simple words, so elo-
cluent in their brevity: 'Richard Hall,
an American, who died for France.'
Oh Spirit of Dick Hall, rejoice! In
the college of your native land the
steel helmet you wore when you were
struck down will be preserved forever
as a sacred relic. It will stir the pride
of your fellow students-and, what
will touch you still more-an anony-
mo.s countryman of yours deeply
moved by your glorious death, has seen
fit, in commemoration of that death,
to send a new ambulance car, dedi-
cated to you, to the front in Alsace.
That car is to be driven by your
brother Louis. Thus, after having
given your life to France, you con-
tmue to serve her in death."
(I have been asked by Dr. and Mrs.
Hall to make the following correction
concerning the matter of sending an
ambulance car to France. Not only
one car, but three such cars were sent.
Two of these were sent not long after
Richard's death; one by' a lady, the
other by a gentleman, both from New
York. The third car was sent only a
short time ago by Dr. and Mrs. Louis
P. Hall.) M. LEVI.

"America can best aid the allies in
the war by furnishing them with sup-
plies and combating the submarines,"
said Sergeant Frank E. Ball of the
Canadian army, in an interview yes-
terday afternoon. "The entrance of
America into the war is the most sig-
nificant event which has occurred in
many months, but it seems to me that
for the present at least, there are
plenty of men on the battle front now.
"The old manner of warfare has
been practically abandoned in the
military tactics of today," continued
Sergeant Ball. "The dismounted serv-
ice men of all the armies of the allies
are compelled to spend the greater
portion of their time while in the
trenches as working units. They must
repair damage caused by artillery and
mining operations, construct new de-
fenses, and set up barbed wire en-

tanglements.
Must Work at Night
"This work is practically all car-
ried on at night as the presence of
a working party, if detected by the
enemy, invariably draws heavy artil-
lery and machine gun fire.
"The morale of the allied troops,"
continued Sergeant Ball, "was never
better than it is today, and the recent
aavances have served as a wonderful
stimulant to the men in the field.
They can now realize that the long
weary months of waiting at the gates
of our modern inferno are bringing
their reward.
"Much credit is due the army serv-
ice corps of the British expeditionary
torce. It has proved itself a won-
derfully efficient organization. The
promptness and accuracy Nhith which
each unit has been supplied with its
requirements is deserving of the high-
est commendation. I believe I am
safe in saying that the success of the
British and French armies in the field
is in a large measure due to the serv-
ices of this corps.
Allies Have Advantage in Air Craft
"In the number of air craft and in
artillery the allies have a decided;
advantage. This makes it practicallya
impossible for an enemy's plane to ob-
tain any important information, which
accounts, no doubt, for much of the
ineffective and scattered fire of the
German artillery since the big of-
fensive began.
"I have never met a man in the
trenches, either in the khaki or the
French blue, who ha ever doubted for
a moment the ultimate victory of the
allied armies," said Sergeant Ball in
conclusion.

birth, but has been fighting with the1

Washington, April 18.-Bullet and
shrapnel-resistant trench helmets have
been adopted by the United States,
marines. These soldiers of the sea are
the first American armed forces to
adopt this spitzer-proof headgear, and
to actually prepare for its manufac-
ture.
The new marine corps helmet, with
which the entire corps will be equip-
ped, is a compromise between French
and the British types. It conforms to
the size and shape of the average head
and can be snugly fitted by the ad-
justment of a cloth cap inside. It is
made of a single piece of chilled steel.
Under test the helmet resisted eight
steel jacketed bullets at 100 feet from
the Springfield rifle, and broke only
upon the impact of the ninth missile.
