P. H. McGregor ot this city has
just received a letter from his broth
er Lieutenant Frank II. McGregor
now on active service in France Lieu-
tenant McGregor was lormerly a phy-
sician at MangUBi. He entered the
army service last September aud was
connected with the British for a time.
He now Is a surgeon in the Ameri-
can medical corps and his letter deals
with the first front line experience
recited in a letter yet received in
Chickasha. The letter in part fol-
lows: "Came Into the line yesterday
morning. Met the Bodies attempt-1
ing an advance and my Initiation In-
to front line warfare was certainly J
a warm one. We had to advance
across open fields under heavy artil
lery fire shells bursting all around
us. I had not been in the shelling
over ten minutes when a piece of
shrapnel cracked down on my steel
helmet I am sure it saved mo from
quite a serious injury.
"We came up from reserve where
we had been resting. Got orders
early in the morning that the Ger-
mans were attacking and we would
have to move up quickly to help hold
them. We marched a few miles and
then moved up to the area of shell
fire in motorlorries. Then my exper-
ience began. Within 30 minutes we
were crossing the fields under heavy
shell fire and took our places imme-
diately in the front line. Of course
we had some casualties before get-
ting Into position. I opened my reg-
imental aid post in a small village
about ISO yards behind the line. The
wounded poured .la rapidly for a
while as our casualties wcro quite
"An hour or so later due to lieavy
machine gun fire I had to move back
about three-quarters of a mile. At
this place things are some quieter
and we are out of machine gun fire
at present. Things are more in our
favor today. We fought yesterday
with little artillery on our side but
today our battories are doing heavy
work and after the Boehe's bombard
mcnt of yesterday I like to hear our
shells whizz over and land in the
enemy lines. B-on't know hoW long
we are expectod to hold on before
being relieved. VBut things are bo-
ginning to go our way and we will
give Fritz his fill."
