WITH THE AMERICAN AKMT IN FRANCE, May 31.--German airmen made a pretentious raid on the area behind the American lines in Picardy last night. Bombs were dropped on all sides of one of the largest hospitals in a town many miles to the rear of tho front. American and French wounded soldiers were carried to cellars and caves by American nurses and members of the American Red Cross. Only a few persons were injured by flying glass as most of the windows in the hospital had been shattered by bombs dropped the previous night. That the raid was planned on a much larger scale than recent ones over this territory is evident by reports made by many Americans in villages over which the raiders passed. The Germans came in wave formation and then scattered widely. One squadron dropped bombs a few hundred feet from an American field hospital and at the same time one of the long range guns shelled the village a fow hundred yards away. In some instances the bombs fell within 30 to 40 feet of a hospital building, but fortunately i.iere were no direct hits. A FrencL nurbe, her mother and two little si^i :-.', were killed in z. house a sbor ujstance from the hospital. Another nurse was standing on the upper floor of the hospital ministering to patients, when a piece of bomb struck her, piercing her lung. Five American nurses were in the same hospital. They were Miss Natalie Scott of New Orleans, Siiss Helen. Spalding of Broofelyn, Miss Mary Mc- Cavlish of Atlanta, Miss Blanche Gilbert of Cleveland and Miss Constance Cook of San Francisco. "It was an exciting time," said Miss ScotL "But there was no panic. Some of our boys actually slept through it all, although their beds were showered-with broken glass."
