TIGER OF FRANCE
IS ON VACATION
Sidelights on Voyage to Egy)t of
Former Premier Clemencean fire
.Paris, .Feb. 21.-Viitually nothing
has -been heard of former Premier
Clomnenceau since his departure from
'Cairo for a vacation and it Is only nowI
that accounts of his voyage are begin
ning to reach Paris from his fellow
passengers 'aboard the Lotus.
The correspondent of Le dournal
says that M. 'Cleienceau was seen but
little except at ineal time. He went to
bed early and on waking in the morn
ig performed his customary g.ynt
nasties with the aid of appartus 'which
had been attached to his cabin cell
iWhen the ship's wireless picked up
'Promier Millerand's declaration that
he Intended to continue the Clemen
ceau policy with regard to 'Russia, M.
"That will be funny."
As the steamer passed the Tromboli
volcano, -M. Clemenccau declared
whimsically that "a villa around here
ought not to be very expensive as the
heating Is supplied gratis."
Observing a small house on the
iotintain side he wondered who could
live in tlhe smoke which came from
tihe volcano, comintiellng "it miust be
the volcano's Janitor--what a beauti
ful job ror a retired man to ho the
guardian of a volcano."
, The former premier attended a the
atrical entertainment on board for the
-heinelt of the widows and orphans of
sailors, and signeI a dozen programs
which were auctioned for 1.650 francs.
T'he highest price paid was 500 francs
and the lowest sixty. M. Clemenceau
declared that "at that rate I would be
willing to sign all way." The former
piremiier declared that he had not
miade any plan.-; nor had he yet form
ulated any impression except that the
ship's vermicelli which had been ex
cellent on the first day, had become
"I eat vermicelli every day," he said.
"I am taking the vermicelli cure. I
have to have all sorts of cures as I
havu fourteen maladies-the same
number ias President Wilson has points
-one malady, one point, everybody
has what he can."
M. 'Clemenceau shrugged his shoul
ders when the danger ot an attack up
on hin at 'Cairo was suggested, say
"Yes, ycs, I was warned but per
haps it was only buncombe. They
may amiss anyway. One must (lie

the voyage and al-though lie was greet
ed by rain, fog and wind upon his ar,
rival in ,Kgypt lie declared lie had
never felt fo young.

BODY BROUGHT I10ME
Otrs. -Dovera of Chicago Finds it Hard

Now York, -ob. 21.-DifflicuIties she
icountered in irdaching hor Ason's
geave in F AYe - and in getting the
body aboard the steamer Britannia for
Lransportation to America were relat
ad today by Mrs. A. Devera of Chicago.
Mrs. Devera, who left today for Ci
tago wit lithe body, declared she would
have failed in her mission had it not
been for the assistance of the Amer
Dan Red Cross and the 'Knights of 'Co
iumbus. She 'declared her success in
getting past the French regulations
was due to an "unstinted use of Amer
ican dollars" amonig the employees of
"There are no arrangements where
by an American parent can get a cas
ket out of France except by the tip
ping process," Mrs. U)vera said.
"There are scores of relatives of (lead
Americans now in France attempting
to do as I did. The Knights 'of Co
lum'bus and the American Red Cross
are doing everything possible for rela
tives. They have located scores of
graves, but are powerless to do any
thing except- with 'the consent of the
F rench authorities."
Drivers of privately owned automo
biles, she said, charge an avergge 01
160 francs to take an American visitor
to an American cemetery.,The Knights
of Columbus, in an effort to proent
this profiteering, Mrs. Devera added
have turned over their machines for
such purposes and forbade the chauf
fours to accept tips.
Her son was James Devera and
Mrs.,Devera is the first American
mother to bring back the body of a
son who died from wounds received in
the world war.
