inmense throng, including President

1917.
A military review, second In size

followed the cereiony. A picked bat
talion of American troops, representa
live of all units comprising the Amer

rade which was reviewed by President
illerantd, General Pershing, Aimbas
sador I Iterrick and all the marshals of
France. The presince of a large body!
of Aicrican troops in Paris for tle
first time Shic' 1919 caused an ouit
bu rst of entiiisiasm from the thous
ands of I'arisianls who linted the Av%e
ntie Des Chamnips l'lysees and the
1Place d'-'t (Ic, where the arch is lo
cated.
Before placing the decoration on
the unknown soldier's tonib, (eneral
Pershing stood before it at salute for
several migutes. Then, in a voice
sliakin. with emotion, lie declared:
"In the Iiaie of Ihe President. and
of the people of the Inited States, as
a token of our pepettal belief in tile
righteousness of the cause for which
you died, and as a niark of respect
and admiration to you and to your!.
coulintrylien, I place this congression
al medal of honor upon your tomb."
'I'le American headquarters band
froni Coblenz then played the "Mar
seillaise" aind "The Star Spangled
Danner."
General Pershing's speech made a
lpr'ofolnd iml5ssionl 111)011 .tle assemt
hage and brought tears to many
eyes. Referring to the unknown as
"Soldier of France, dear- friend and
my conirade," the general said:
"I sallute inl your noble life and in
your tragic death you have become to
the world ian iiiortal symbol of de
