NOT ONE AMERICAN
TO-DAY IN FRANCE
Marshal Pclain and Mr. Wal
lace, at Memorial, Regret
Removal of Bodies.
I'AltIS, May 30. Memorial exer
cises wcro held to-day In every Amer
ican cemetery in Franco, and wreaths
were placed even on Isolated graves
of Americans woo died In tnls coun
try during tho wnr. Trio 'rencb
auvcrnment exerted every effort to
make, sure that not n single Ameri
can hero was forgotuin.
At the suggestion of tho Govern
ment thero were guards of honor at
tho principal cemeteries, nfld whrr
ever Americans wcro unable to send
delegations to conduct services, the
French offered to lead tho exercise,
as well as to participate) In the pro
grammes. Tho cemotery at rtomngne-sous-Montfaucon,
where 20,000 Americans
who fell In tho battle of the Argonnn
wcro burled, is now closed to tha
public because of the removal ot the
bodies of the Americans. Thi prin
cipal programruo for tho day,. there
fore, was given at tho Surcsnca Ccruu
tory, noar this city, whoro Hugh C.
Wallaco, American Ambassador:
Major lleneral Henry T. Allen. Com
mander of American troops at
Cobleti? and Marshal I'etalii spoke.
In his addicss Mr. Wallaco said:
"Could 1 have my way, these graven
would never bo disturbed. The loving
care ot the French people has mado
them beautiful, and the peaco which
reigns here should bo unbroken. I
Intend no disagreement with those
gold star mothers at home who asked
that the bodies of their sons be re
turned to the land which bore them,
but I think that in following this nat
ural Impulse they may havo acted
without full understanding of the
true conditions. Could they be with
us here to-day and .see what I see,
they would not deprive their boys ot
their places In this Held of honor,
where 'glory guards with solemn
round the bivouac of the dead," "
Turning to .Mr. Wallace, .Marshal
Pctadn said: "Mr. Ambassador: You
have expressed eloquently your re
gret at seeing removed from the soil
of France, little by little, tho Ameri
can tombs. We regret It as do you.
We would have wished tach ear to
have the prlvilego of boflowerlng .11
has been dono to-day by the "Sou
venir Francais,' these tombs of the
friends adopted by our country
"In the absence of this mater' n i
between our two peoples, we will
guard In our hearts tho memory of
our battles, or our nopes, or our ic
torles and of our century-old uffev
tlon. These aro the solid husos o.( an
eternal friendship nnd co-operation
When you return to your great cmin
try, Mr. Ambassador, taking v,h
you tho warm sympathy of ui
Frenchmen, tell your compatriots
how faithful France continues t
those who fought for her and upon
her soil saved threatened cvll'za
