BOULOGNE. France. June 13.
Cheering thousands, some moved to tears,
welcomed to French soli today the commander-in-chief
of the army which America
la to send to Join France In making the
World safe for democracy
The tall soldierly appearing figure of
Major General John J. Pershing, garbed In
the business-like khaki of the American
army, was acclaimed as France has seldom
acclaimed In all her history.
Frenzied crowds packed the "streets to
shout their Joys nnd wave the Tricolor of
France with tho same three colors of the
Star Spangled Banner.
Pershing arrived at 9.4ft this morning.
He had made a quick and an uneventful
trip over from England. France has been
waiting eagerly for him to step on her soil.
PERSHING DEEPLY MOVED
Pershing was deeply moved by the
greeting he received here
"I .consider this one of the most Impor
tant moments In American history," he
said. "Our arrival on French soli, con
stituting as we do the advance guard of an
American army, makes us realize to the
fullest the Importance of America's par
ticipation. "Our reception has moved us deeply. I
can only reaffirm that America has entered
the war with the Intention of performing
her full share however great or small, the
future will dictate. Our allies can depend
upon that absolutely."
French Government officials formally
welcomed Pershing and his staff in the
name of the nation and the Americans were
taken, to a special train en route for Paris.
After Pershing and tho officers of his staff
had disembarked and had been taken away
In a,ut6mJ)blIes.Dui)icKJijTnIss!oned officers and
privates orderlies and attaches to the
American general Vfttourage swarmed off

crowd at the railway station.
GREET BROTHERS IN ARMS
There vere British Tommies there to
welcome their new brothers In arms and
French pollus as well. Hundreds of hand
shakings and embraces marked the meet
ing of these representatives of three great
armies now pledged to a common purpose.
The crowds thrilled at the spectacle of the
khnkl groups of three as they marched arm
The Americans were trying out their
French or swapping slang with the Tom
mies, and the pollus were proudly exhibit
ing their English words In return, while
the Britishers tried to compress into a
few minutes' conversation some of tho
fighting lore they had learned at the front.
It was hard work for the American noncoms
to leave their new-found friends and board
The British Tommies were part of those
aboard several big troop ships discharging
their human cargoes at the time the Amer
Boulogne harbor was alive early in the
morning awaiting the arrival of tho Amer
ican general and his staff. The first notice
qSat the ship was llnally arriving came with
the roar of salutes from French patrol boats
In the-outer harboi Then tho British troop
ships, hastily shifted their anchorage to
ajlow the boat with all Its all-important
ejugo- to dock nt the principal wharf.
CEREMONIES AT PIER
There a huge American flag was flung
to the breeze from the topmost part of the
landing stage, while on the dock Itself a
brilliant, colorful assembly awaited, cheer
log eo that their welcome must have been
heard far out over the waters as the boat
slowly nosed her way between the whlstle
shrlekfng and gun-barking craft In be
tween. On the dock were British, French and
Belgfan officers, formally- drawn up In
rigid salute, as General Pershing first put
his foot on French soil and gave evidence
In the flesh of America's determination to
Rene Besnard, Under Secretary of War,
waa the governmental representative at this
notable scene. He arrived from Paris
barely In time to scurry to the dock and
shake hands with the American commander
as he stepped ashore.
BOY GETS AUTOGRAPH
A small French boy who edged forward
In the crowds that greeted the American
general was noticed by Pershing. He
wanted something and Pershing wanted to
' know what It was. He came forward and
Shyly shook hands with the big smiling
American and then asked him to sign an
autograph album, proudly displaying the
signatures which he had already obtained
In It from Marshal Joffre and Field Marshal
Halg. General Pershing stopped right there
and signed the book.
At Paris, It was announced today,
Pershing will make his headquarters In the
2fotel Crlllon until he selects staff head
