If I hnd pot the two bniloous instead of the airplane, I probably would nor. have lost my machine, for he would in nil probability huve gone on home and not bothered about getting my range and causing the destruction of.' my machine.

Tots was at a point about four miles behind the Gormun lines. Kvidi s nHy tlie German artillery saw me and put out ground signals to attract the Hun raacliine's attention, for ground that I would be able to fly on from there, I was still examining my piano and considering the matter of a few slight repairs, without any particular thought for my own safety in that unprotected spot, when a shell cuine whizzing through the air, kuocked mo to the ground uud lauded n few feet away. It had ao sooner struck than I made a mn for cover and crawled into a shell hole. I would huve llkeU to get farther away, bnt I didn't know where the next ahull would burst, and I thought I wits fairly safe there, so I squatted dowa and let thorn blaze a. way. The only damage I suffered was from the mud which splattered np in my face and over uiy clashes. Thnt was my Introduction to a shell hole, and I resolved right there that the infantry could have all the shell-hole fighting they wanted, but it did not appeal to me, though they lire In Lhem through many a long night and I had only sought shelter there for a few minutes.
