LONDON, April 10.--But for the gallant defense put up by General Carey's improvised army in which American railway engineers played a prominent p*art, says the correspondent on the Western front of the Daily Mail, the enemy rnigiS. have pushed through Amiens in the first few days of his great attack. "There'was no doubt in anybody's mind that they would hold on grimly as long as breath remained in their bodies," says the correspondent. How the men were assembled before day- ·light, made up into 'companies and. battalions by noon and ready to inarch shortly after is told by the correspondent, who adds: "It was not until it had been in the field for sprue time that the force was able' to get artillery, but as soon as th'ey had it they certainly used it to good advantage. In the beginning, however, it was the men who held the enemy back with their bodies." Members of J/ocal Post Join With Comrade lit Tanderbilt Observing Appomaitoac Day.
