South Carolina Honored by
'Greenwood, Dec. .9.-Ferdinand
Foch-marshal of France, command:
er in chief of the allied armies, hon
ored guest? of South Carolina!
This great little Frenchman, in
whose hands not many months ago
rested the lives of millions of men
and the probable destiny of the en
tire world,. came to the Palmetto
State today, and as surely as he ever
conquered a foe, so did he triumph
here this afternoon among friends.
From all parts of the commonwealth
a grateful people sent representatives
to pay homage to a man whose mili
tary genius will never be forgotten
. but who, like Washington, is not only
great in war, but in peace.
To Greenwood fell the distinction
of the generalissimo's . official visit
and no place could have more proud
ly done the honors. It was kept in
mind throughout that though this
thriving Piedmont city was the set
ting for the scene, the welcome ac
corded was in behalf of all . South
The generalissimo has been given
celebrations from the Statue of Lib
erty to the golden Gate, in the West,
the East, the North and now the
Bouth. There have been larger dem
onstrations but it is a safe assertion
that nowhere during his stay in the
United States has he had a more
whole hearted, hospitable reception
than that accorded him in Green
Marshal Foch has been dined, (but
not wined) from New. York to the
Pacific coast, yet it is a safe bet that
his acute French taste for good cook
ing has nowhere been better satis
fied than when he partook tonight of
his prize Greenwood turkey and ac
cessories. Likewise when he feasted
on the South Carolina possum, he ate
a dish fit for the gods.
All Too Brief.
Thirty minutes! How brief a time
yet how raucji took place within its
limits. The special train arrived prac
tically oh time amid the sound of
whistles and as the official delegation
had met him at Abbeville, no time
was lost at the depot. As he alighted
he was cheered and marching through
a spick and span line of Bailey Mili
tary institute cadets, drawn up at
present, he was hurried to waiting
automobiles and driven to the city
square.. There the principal ceremo
nies took place. His approach was
the signal for a great outburst which
must have thralled even> a man ljke
Foch who for 'weeks has been cheer
ed as no foreigner has been cheered
A poll of the crowd would have
found names, of well known men from
all sections of the state. The govern
or, although decidedly unwell, made
the trip anyway that he might greet
Foch. A large number of his staff
were present. Maj. Louis Osborne,
the assistant adjutant general, being
in charge of military headquarters.
Ex-service men did not hesitate to
wear the O. D., and men of high and
low rank, were here. It is estimated
that.about 15,000 peopk saw Foch
in Greenwood. 1
The marshal came to the United
States as the guest of the American
Legion and therefore today he was
the immediate 'guest, of the South ;
Carolina legionaires. Traveling with
him are National Commander Mc- ?
Nider and Past Commander D 'Olier. .
It was therefore highly fitting that
Morris Lumpkin, state commander, 1
introduce Gov. Robert A. Cooper,
who presented the generalissimo. The ,
Lander college students sang "The
Marseillaise." The marshal was in ^
the midst of mounting the platform ^
when the girls began to sing the na- ,
tional anthem of his country. Imme- ,
diately he came to salute, the crowd ^
giving to it the. same respect as is
shown "The.Star Spangled Banner." <
The chair occupied by the marshal r
was loaned by Mrs. Joseph R. Allen of j
Columbia, having been used by the j
Marquis de Lafayette while attend- ^
ing a reception in Columbia in 1825. i
Commander Lumkin greeted Mar- <
shal Foch as the "great son of (
France and as the "last of a great (
line of warrior chiefs" and Gov. Rob- f
ert A. Cooper, who after briefly tell- ?
ing the general of the esteem and af- i
fection in which he is held, presented \
the generalissimo as "the first soldier ]
of the world." r
Foch Speaks. ?
When the cheering had subsided I
the marshal spoke briefly, pausing 1
after each paragraph that Col. Frank *
Parker, his aide, who is a native of
South Carolina, might interpret his c
remarks. . . . 1
The general said: ^
"It is very easy for me to express *
myself to. you. The friendship which 1
has so long existed between our e
countries has sq recently been ce- *
mented by blood on the battlefield for 1
the same cause.
"The reception I receive in no wayjt
surprises me, but.!wish to' place the
reception in its true setting. .
"I wish to thank you first, and then
congratulate you, for sending .to us
those fine combat men and then for
the material assistance ..nd finally
for that great spirit of unanimity
which, rising in the West, swept
across the ocean and carried us vic
toriously to the Rhine.
."In applying the same principle as
applied during the war, in maintain
ing the same unity, we shall surely
move on to success in time of peace
as in time of war.
"It is then with expression of my
faith in the future, based on the sol
idarity of purpose, that I leave my
fervent wishes for happin?ss of your
state of South Carolina and the city
of Greenwood, which I unfortunately
have such a short time to visit."
The only disturbing incident of the
day came when the marshal was
forced to stop speaking for at least a
minute while a C. & W. C. freight
train rang its bell, puffed and steam
ed at the railway station across the
ivay from the stand.
At the conclusion of the address,
;he time was almost up and therefore
;he several tokens were given to him
vithout addresses, the Knights of
Columbus gave him a memorial writ
;eri upon sheepskin, expressing "the
iupreme satisfaction your presence in
South Carolina affords our people."
rhe Rev. L. Jaquier of Columbia
nade .the presentation. Official greet
ngs were given from the city ol
Charleston by A. Theodore Soubey
.oux ,president of the Soci?t? Fran
cis, and Thomas W. Bacot, president
)f the Huguenot Society of South
Carolina, represented * his organiza
ion. Mayor Harveley of Greenville
rave the marshal a gold key to the
nountain city and a gavel made from
vood from Camp Sevier. Mrs. H. J.
?rinson of Greenville .handed him
mts from South Carolina trees with
i note attached, which expressed the
?retty sentiment that the marshal
ilant them in his native land to re
ilace trees lost in the world war.
When pretty little Laura Arring,
laughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. S. Ar
ing, accompanied ?by little Carroll
Shipley, son of Mr. and Mrs. T. S.
Shipley, brought the marshal a large
.ouquet of Greenwood's choicest ros
s, the great military man took a kiss
rom the little girl's cheek and gent
y patted the young man on the chin.'
Greenwood will always remember
he visit of Foch, and will always
ogrish th? French flag which he gavei
to Mayor'?Hartzog for the city.
French officers, travelling in the .
official party, complimented t Green
wood, j telling Post Commander Ro- ,
senberg that it is the first ci' " where
the crowds allowed the procession to
proceed' absolutely on schedub. and 1
where the departure was made on j
The official party then reentered
th? machines, Foch's chauffeur being M
Tom Casey, who drove him on more j
than one occasion in France. Marshal j
Foch was taken back to his train. In ^
the meantime the 30-pound gobbler j
furnished by Mrs. B. W. Watkins of j
Chappells, was waiting steaming hot, .
fer the marshal's dinner. It was
cooked by Mrs. Tabby McKellar and. ^
was decorated by Mrs. G. W. Rush ^
who prepared the additions necessary ^
to make it a real South Carolina tur
key dinner. The opossum was given
by R. P. Blake and cooked by Mrs.
Greenwood was in gala attire.
Maxwell avenue and the public square 1
were draped in French and American '
flags and bunting, and on Maxwell 1
street the official party passed under c
an arch of triumph. \ *
The reception party going to Ab
bevill? to meet the guest was compos- .
ed of Mayor A. S. Hortzog, Local c
Post Commander Ernest Rosenberg,
Col. Perrin Cothran, Maj. John W. *
Moore, Col. J. Monroe Johnson. a
The procession from the depot was
headed by mounted police, Major W.
H. Welch, grand marshal chosen for *
the day, Hejaz drum corps and First
infantry band, followed by cars con
taining Marshal Foch, Governor
Cooper, State Legion Commander
Lumpkin, Local Post Commander
Ernest Rosenberg, National Com
mander Hanford McNider, Col. J.
Monroe Johnson, Mayor A. S. Hart
zog, Past National /Commander
Franklin DVOlier, Brigadier General c
Roberts, Col. Frank Parker, Chief b
Justice Eugene B. Gary and other ^
Did Honors Well.
- Cn all sides there was loud praise j,
for the fine fashion in which Green- t(
wood did the honors of the day: It"^
was anticipated that this would be ^.
the case but the smoothness and pre
cision with which everything worked,
the compactness of the program, the
handling of the crowd-all moved j
like clockwork, the celebration being ??
a distinct ^credit to Greenwood and to
the state of South Carolina. Extra
policemen from Spartanburg, Green
ville, Belton, Gaffney and Chester
were on hand and . members of the
American Legion also acted in any
capacity necessary to the success of
Hejaz drum corps, the First infan
try ^band of Union, the Newberry
band and Jordan Mill band added
much to the day.
The marshal is nearing the end of
riis stay in the United States. Soon
ie will be on the high seas bound for
lome, for his beloved France. And
:onight South Carolina's heart beats
ligh with the hope that as he looks
sack upon the trip and counts the
pleasant memories of his visit to
America he will pick out as one of
Jie finest treasures of his' 47 days,
