'Mr. 'Wilson left the Murat. residence
early this morning, foregoing attend
anee at church and the rest 1which he
felt he needed very much to perform
what he said he considered to be a
duty. The party first motored to
Chateau Thierry where lunch was
taken on board a waiting train. The
party then proceeded by motor to
Rhelins, passing through many ruin
ed villages and along the olo fight-,
ing lines, where evidences. of ionmbat
are still to be plainly seen. After
visiting Rheinis the President and
Iis pa'(y abandcloned their motor cars
and boarding a special train, return
ed to Paris. The 'last part. of the io
tor trip was iade in a swirling snow
'The 'first fighting ground was
reached as the party neared Belleau
wood, imm1itorialized in the history of
the war by the gallant fighting of
American niarines. The motor cars
inned off the main roads and crawl
ed perilously through back lanes to
bring the President close to the place
where the fighting took place. The
country folk in that neighborhood are
striving to reclaii their country
from war's desolation. Tihe farmners
were plowing the shell cratered fields
as the President stood beside the
graves of one hundred or more Ameri
can boys who gave their lives at that
point and looked across the strategic
valley to Belleau wood, a mangled
mass of three trunks and inderbrush,

out of work, will demand immediate
consideration of the bill creating mn

money to employ thousands of muell.

III spite of tile evidence of unei
