holiday had becn declared by the pet pie themselves. All city departments
were closed at noon and Mayor I lylan led a parade up Fifth Avenue. Such
banks as continued to do business during the early hours of the morning
closed their doors at noon.
The courts all suspended for the day and in miuor courts judges aud
magistrates remitted (lues und imposed only suspension of sentences.
Judge Malone, In the Court of General Sessions, suspended sentence ou
thirteen first offenders who had pleaded guilty and sent them out to cele
brate the world's rebirth of Liberty.
Tbo celebration centered about mld-Manlmttau this afternoon and
Fifth Avenue, Uroadway and other main avenues 'and the leading crons
town thoroughfares were all but Impassable. Soldiers, sailors and collrgo
lads In uniform organized snake dancea aud defied the polccl. Street cars
were stalled between croaslngu. The air was thick with blips of torn
paper tossed from skyscrapers. Six million people In this vicinity went
crazy with Joy.

attempt to guide the German people safely to the family
of nations of democracy.

which it is necessary to deal.
