BESTOWS HIGHEST HONOR ON
The "bravest woman in France" is
to be given the Cross of the Legion of
Honor for an act of heroism rarely
Ulysee Poulin, a signalman, aged
51, was mysteriously shot dead in his
box on the Nord Railway, between
Paris and Chantilly.
The lonlely station was known to
Parisians as the spot where motor
bandits cut the signal wires in a plot
to wreck the London-Paris express.
Poulin's vigilance averted a disaster.
Hearing a revolver shot and a de
spairing cry for help, Mme. Poulin
rushed to the signal box to find her
husband dying. Life was not extinct,
but, as the grief-stricken wife bent
above her dying husband the whistle
of an onrunshing express warned her
that unless the signals were tended a
catastrophe was inevitable.
Calling her son to come to his
father's assistance, the anguished
woman turned to tend the levers.
Hundreds of lives depended on her
devotion to duty.
Her first thought was of danger on
the line. For three hours she stood
at her post enabling traffic to pro
ceed as usual, entering the details in
the train book with precise care.
When the Calais express came
along the heroic woman flagged it
and placed her unconscious husband
in a vacant compartment He died
on his way to Paris.
That man is playing in luck who
can stretch the truth without breaks
