Capt. Gonzales was asked for an in
terpretation of the inscriptions from
i the viewpoint of their author. "In the
first sentence of the inscription from
the south side," he replied, "the monu

"That their heroism and courage

is in the lines:
"'Splendid in Fortitude,
They strove while they wept.'
"In defeat and amid want, mourning
and with threatened chaos, they were
steadfast and unafraid.
"The concluding sentence of the in
scription pays tribute to the services
