He saw plenty of red- blooded figlitiug in Prance in 1917, and did more than his share of battling with his combat engineers outfit ii\ North Africa last year. Arthritis has accomplished what the foes of the two wars were unable to do—force Private Nelson out of notion. He will sooi> receive an' honorable medical discharge from in veterans' hospital. .•'•Private Nelson joined the Army ;ln 1911 at Omaha, and left the fol- .lowlng year for overseas duly 'in Si-Vance where lie participated in the Meuse-Argonne drive and served for almost a year under Gen, John t'crshing.

Latpr figures, General Tyler" said, arc not nyp atmilnvle, pointing out that many types of craft are involved and that security forbids dissemination of any later figures. In addition to the many types of landing craft, the boats involved include: submarines, destroyer escorts and frigates. . ; • "All; of these, craft have moved down the river -without a single se- iciis accident which could be nl- ilmtcd 'to channel conditions," he said. .'.'Because, the. river did give a sufficient; channel '• to i allow'-its use. for sending' the craft to sea, they could be produced inland: whei e material, mid imm, po^ei-;.have 1 bech more;: readily available:-mid i\vhfy ; e fiic11}Jlesj; ; which !othcrjvisc :! ) iniglit have beciv wasled,"liave been util- ised to the fullest in prosecution of the war." Contact pilots employed by the Engineer Department, have ridden the craft down the river to keepi the regular pilots posted on chin- nel conditions.
