Doctor Jenkins expresses the opin
ion that Verdun would be the most
famous battlefield of Europe. Once a
beautiful city of France, it was now
a scene of desperate struggle which
bore mute evidence of the sacrifices
of lives and treasure which had been
made to hold it. The speaker said
that Verdun was a city of shell in
more sense than one. The buildings
were mere shells with no doors, win
dows or roofs. The big 16-inch shells
of the enemy were continually falling
oxer the city and the outer fortifica
tions. Doctor Jenkins had warm words of
praise for the French officers and men
who are defending the city. He de
clared that they were men who would
light to the last ditch.

treniely unhealthy for the soldiers,
the large citadel beneath the city,
capable of holding one division of
men. was the safest hotel in Europe,
Een the big 16-inch shells of the
Germans could not penetrate there.
"If we live 100 years as a republic
we can never pay back the debt we
owe to France," said Doctor Jenkins.
"While Great Britain was preparing
and we were deciding that this was
also our war, she withstood the attack
of the best trained army in Europe."

would lie called in the next draft. He
saw mi objection, he said, to these
students who were sure of being call

to enter and enlisting for that serv
ice: but all others, he bcliexcd, should
lo as the government wished and
continue their education.
The large audiences that greeted
Doctor Jenkins at his two addresses
here yesterday were an indication of
the keen interest taken in the war in
this community. The University Au
ditorium was filled 40(11 yesterday
morning and last night by University
and townspeople to hear the vivid de
scriptions of conditions on the British,
French and Italian fronts, which Doc
tor Jenkins recently visited.

The sight of the big guns firing across
the valleys was a thrilling one. He
believed that the American people did
not have a correct conception of the
Italian nation. He said that nowhere
in Europe did he meet with such cour
tesy and kindly treatment as he did
in Italy with the Italian army.
In his work as correspondent Doc
tor Jenkins had some close calls from
shell fire. On one occasion, in com
pany with a French and a British cor
respondent, he had to run the gant
let or enemy shell fire which was di
rected against the Italian batteries.
