This was the official story sent out
by the Associated Press on one of
the greatest days within the memory
of those living today. America's mil

went wild In spontaneous celebrations
of which the participants had never

America and the world were glad.

spirit of Armistice day? Eight years
are not enough to deterndne n tra

us, and only time can tell what la to
be the spirit of this day.
But already we look forward to It
as an American national holiday. In
this autumn of 1020, In which fulls the
eighth anniversary of Armistice day,
the outward and visible sign of the
Inward and spiritual grace which ani
mates the American breast Is tribute
to the heroic soldier dead In the form
of honors to the Unknown Soldier.
The world will not soon forget the
solemn ceremony with which Great
Britain on the second anniversary of
Armistice day laid to rest "A British

Nor will It soon forget how France
honored her hérolc dead by making
