Cobb retains his embonpoint and hearty
mile. He seems to enjoy work. He Is
anxious toget hsck to New Tork where
he has a tot of work awaiting Mm.
One of the most thrilling experiences
Mr. Cobb hsd In Europe wee while trail
ing the German army with four other
eorreepomlents In southern Belgium. It
was near Blnche. The Germans were
driving the allies back. The correspond
ents walked until they were weary, but
their enthusiasm overcame exhausted
nature. On a certain day a long train of
auto trucks were being taken In light A
sympathetic) soldier on one of the autos
espied the tired correspondents trudging
along. Cobb and his associates had
walked thirty miles the day before. Cobb
seys his feet were tender and sore. The
eoldier Invited the pedesttlsns to Jump
lnt his suto truck and have a rids, which
Cobb and hla friends did. A little "non
com" sergeant In one of the eutoe ahead
observed the actions of the correspond
ents and called back to the driver to
make them get off. 'The driver replied
that they were Amerlcaln correspondents.
The sergeant grew more Insistent that
tea Americans should get off. The
driver touched Cobb on the shoulder as a
sign thst he had better jump oft. The
auto was Just going down a steep hill.
Cobb's feet were sore and he thought he
would not jump while making the descent
(artrlda-e 'Dnea IV Explode.
At the bottom of the hill when Cobb
had alighted the little sergesnt thinking
Cohb had been dallbsraUlv defiant, 1h-
bed an automatic against the correspond
ent's solar ploxls region. The sergeant
nulled the trigger, but the cartridge did
not explode, which pleased Cobb. Cobb
grabbed the gun to ward off what he be
lleved was Impending death.
At this juncture Hansen, one of the
party of correspondents. In a nonrhalent
manner,, said In perfect 2)iKl(eh to the
little sergeant, "The driver told us we
might ride on the auto."
Cobb knew that Hansen wss a German
scholar and could speak the language
fluently. Cohb said to Hansia:
"Hansen, if you ever spoke perfect
German In your life, spesk It now or I
may never hear you."
Cobb had an Interesting sxperienos In a
Certnaa oliservatlon balloon over the
plateau In front of Leon, along the Alane.
He was up with a Gerrruui lieutenant and
witnessed a battle which spread out Ilka
a vast relief map. He says It was an
iraipressiva sight He could command a
view of the opposing forces and saw grim
r from an elevated angle.
"While up In this obser!oa balloon a
French flyer made an attack on Cobb's
aerial party. The Oftrman lieutenant
trained his balloon cannon upon the
French airship and chased It away. Cobb
took some photographs of the French
aerial fiver
VUeuteruuit, I will have soms of these
photographs ready In about a week, flnall
I send you some and how shall I address
themr asked the correspondent.
The lieutenant gave the address of his
another, a baroness, explaining: "l may
not be here in a Week. I may be sou
somewhere. I am the. third man In three
weeks In this balloon. Two others wer
killed. The average life of a war bal
loon operator Is six daya." was the grim
reply of the aortal lieutenant
Cbb talked along with the lieutenant
who wax a fine companion, well educated,
patiie. quirk In action, fearless
"When we go into tbla kind of service

and frlcnda. Only slngletien go in theas

some day maybe. I will them." c
ttnued Cobb's aerial companion, as they
talked above the din of battle. Than Cobb
