Deputies Wild With Joy
Sienes of wildest enthusiasm were
enacted in the Chamber of Deputies
this afternoon when Premier Clemen?
ceau read the conditions of the Ger?
man armistice. The whole Chamber
rose to greet the Premier, while, the
salteries, in which was a predominance
of soldiers in uniform and women,
cheered for several minutes.

se'ves and at the same time keep our
military superiority. Thank you, gen?
