Big Day for Pershing in Co
Columbia, Dec. 6.-Fifty thousand
South Carolinians lined Main Street
here today as General Pershing and
his staff paraded, escorted by the
three combined bands of Camp,. Jack
son, troops of four regiments, officers
of the camp and prominent citizens
The parade began at the Jefferson
Hotel. At the statehouse Governor
Cooper gave a state reception in hon
or of General Pershing and his staff
and General Reade of Camp Jackson
and his staff. s
Receiving with the governor were
state officials and prominent citizens
of the state.
Two thousand people passed
through the capitol and shook hands
with the A. E. F. commander.
This was one of the greatest days
Columbia ever witnessed. People
came to the city from all parts of the
state. Before the parade the chamber
of commerce tendered an eight
course luncheon to the visiting sol
diers, there being 300 prominent cit
izens sitting with the general, J. D.
Miot of Columbia, presided.
General Pershing spent the busiest
day he has yet had on his tour of
military establishments, so stated Col I
onel Marshall, his aide.
?The general went to Camp Jackson
at 9 o'clock today and reviewed the
troops in a grand parade. As the dis
tinguished soldier entered the camp
gates an artillery salute was fired.
Kisses Little Girl.
At the conclusion of the review,
and as the commander was preparing
to take his automobile, hundreds of
civilians gathered around. He stoop
ed to talk to a group of small chil
dren. One thoughtful 5-year-old pin
ned some roses on his coat. The gen
eral took the little girl in his arms
and kissed her; and the hearts of ad
miring hundreds were touched. The
little girl was Elaine Wildrich, daugh
ter of Lieut. Col. Wildrich of the
44th coast artillery.
General Pershing was asked by
newspaper men here today what he
thought of Camp Jackson. He said
it was a fine camp, though he could
not express his official opinion until
he reports back to the war depart
ment. He was asked for an opinion
as to the Mexican situation. He said
he would rather not talk about that.
Presidency, "Oh," Fudge!"
General Pershing was then laugh
ingly asked, "What about the presi
dency?" His reply was typically Per
shing, "Oh, fudge!" General Per
shing had a kind word and a smile
for every man, woman and baby that
passed before him in the reception
Miss Hallie Josey, of Columbia,
who was a Y. M. C. A. worker in
France and who, on one occasion in
the war zone met the general at a re
ception, greeted the general today
with, "I did all this for you once be
fore in France, general," and the big
soldier replied, "Well, I am mighty
glad to see you again," and his smile
was warm and jovial.
Following the State reception this
afternoon General Pershing and his
staff were the guests for a few min
uses before leaving for Charleston of
J. D. Miot, president of the Columbia
chamber of commerce, at his resi
General Pershing made a speech
from the statehouse steps on behalf
of the American Legion. He appealed
to the men of the legion to stand to
day for the principles they fought for
"I am as confident that you will
stand up under the" responsibilities
placed upon you today," said the gen
eral, "as I was that you would when
I ordered you into battle." Cheer af
ter cheer rang to heaven at the com
mander's words, and people flocked
about him to shake his hand, even
after he had left the capitol to take
the waiting automobile.
Members of General Pershing's
staff state that in to other town
where the general has been has he
been given such a reception.
?He said he had not had such a
strenuous time anywhere else shak
ing hands either, but that he did this
in Columbia for the sake of the gov
ernor and the people of South Caro
The general paid a high tribute to
the men' from this state who fought
in the Thirtieth, the Eighty-Frst and
the Rainbow divisions in France.
