WOlLD'S BEST FIGHTER
New York, Sept. 8.--The American
doughboy is the finest soldier in the
world and it did not take the Germans
long to find it out," declared Gen.
Pershing in an interview granted
newspaper men today at the Waldorf
"We boasted a little, probably, of
the peculiar qualities of the American
fighting man, but his aggressiveness,
initiative and devotion as a member
of the American Expeditionary Forces
gives us every right to boast and to
be proud of him,' the comnmander said
"I suppose it is because of the way
the American boy is raised, true to the
fact that h is encouraged to develop
his initiative and that he feels at any
crisis of his life that he is master of
his ovn destiny."
The interview, brought about in the
hope that the general might be will
ing to express his views upon such
subjects as the league of nations, the
situation in Europe and in Ale(Xco,
what he intuu oled doing when he en
tered civil life, when he expected to
retire from the. army anl similar ques
tions, was preceded by a general hand
shaking all around and a remark by
Gen. Pershing that all such topics
"I on still on duty," he said. "It
is a pleasant duty, but very strenu
oes." The general hail just finished
luncheon after a little rest. to refresh
liim:-elf :fter the arduous hours of the
morning an l he said that while he
was glad to meet all the newspaper
men he couli only answer su- I ques
tions as propp azriy cmiie within the
range of his profsison.
The question was aske'd:
"General, what do you consiedr the
crowning achievement of your serv
ive abroad ?" to which he heplied:
"Cutting the .German lines at Sedan
on November 8."
"Was that a more difficult operation
than cutting the Hindlenburg line?"
he was asked.
"Cutting the lindenburg line was a
start. toward cutting the line at Sedan.
It wvas hard to tell what might have
become of it unlder dlifferent circuml
stances. It followved the final effort of
the Germans to force their way
through but, their armies were beaten
before they started."
"G;ener'al will you say a few words
about Marshal Foch ?"
"Marshal lFoch,' he repIlie'd appreci
atively, "is a ver greab strategist."
