Greets Troops Of 37th Here James M. Cox and Mayors of Two Cities Among Thousands of Bnekeye Welcomers at Hoboken Dog Wears Wound Stripe (J. S. Cruiser Huntington, Noordam and Von Steubeu Bring in 4,105 Fighters Thousands of Ohioans came from East and West yesterday and captured Hoboken. There were colonels nnd majors and mascots, a major general, two mayors and thc Governor of the state. To-day they will nll bo down at Camp Mills making merry over the return of Ohio's own, the famous 37th Division. At daybreak the civilians went down the bay or. the customs cutter Victory and the police boat Patrol. At 8 a. m. there was a loud and joyous recep tion at Quarantlne as t.hc United States cruiser Huntington, the Hol !and-America liner Noordam and the transport Von bteuDcn steamed in with 143 Ohio officers and 3,960 men from Trance. The Victory, carrying Governor James M. Cox, jockeyed for position as the Noordam, leader of the fleet, steamed by before the Victory could get alongside. Tho Huntington came by a few minutes later and slowed down so the Victory and tho Patrol might come within speaking range. Two Mayors on thc Patrol On the Patrol were Mayor Harry L. David, of Cleveland, and Mayor Cornell Sehreiber, of Toledo, carrying, like Governor Cox, flags and bunting and shouting words of cheer to the troops. Shortage of tugs and the urgency of docking at slack water cut short what might have been an claborate recep tion down the bay. The big ships put on speed and an hour later were made fast to the army piers in Hoboken. On the Noordam, which carried the smallest group of tho 37th Division, came Major General Charles S. Farns worth, of the regular army, who com manded the division throughout the war. He was accompanied by a de ?achment of the 37th Division head quarters, the infantry, field and staff, ordnance and medical detachments, ma? chine gun company and one casual com? pany of 30 officers and 613 men. According to official reports, the 37th Division occupied a larger portion of :he West front during their comba tive activity than any other division. Figures in the casualty list showed that 982 Ohio men were kiiled and a total of 3,269 men were wounded. The divifion, which comprised 27,000 men, received 152 citations from Bel gium, two crosses of the Order of Leo pold, two of the Legion of Honor and fourteen other French decorations of a higher order. The Croix de Guerre was bestowed upon 221 men. The division was greeted November 20, 1918, by King Albert of Belgium. After training at Camp Shorman, Chillicothe, Ohio, in May, 1918, and at Camp Lce, Petersburg, Va., the Ohioans went to Brest and trained for threo weeks in the Bournand area. They reported for duty in the Baccard sector of the Vosges. where they -erved from July 22 to" September 8. They participated September 26 in the Argonne offensive, in which nine American divisions took part. The 37th later was transferrcd to Belgium, where it w-as brigaded with the French. Resisting the strongest of German pressure, they crossed the rivers Kscaut and Lys and drove the enemy back for two days and nights without stop. The cruiser Huntington brought home 34 officers and 999 men of the Ohio division, among her total soldier passenger complement of 2,035 officers and mon. The units were the 134th and 136th Machine Gun battalions complete, rcturning in command of Major Wade C. Christie, of Youngs town, Ohio. A dog with a wound chevron was a featured attraction. He was born in a t?nt in a training camp and followed ihe battalion throughout its activity ovorseas. Thc soldiers named him "Pup," and the official papers which ?ave him a wound chevron mention nim by that name. The transport Von Steuben, formerly the Xorth German Lloyd liner Kron pnnz Wilhelm, brought home 2,783 of neera and men, among them being 81 officers and 2,418 of the Ohio troops, made up largely from the 147th In? fantry- They were in command of Colonel George W. Stuart, of the 74th infantry Brigade, and Colonel John C. Darby, of brigade headquarlers. According to officers on the Von St?uben, the 37th Division in three months captured 26 German officers, 1,4*9 men, 2'd pieces of artillery and 263 machine guns. ??' a ? Lewis Gun Inventor Returns an ISoardarn; 200,000 Used in War Colonel Isaac N. Lewis, U. S. A. re tired, inventor of the famous Ixjwis machine gun, arrived here yesterday on tho Holland-America liner Noor? dam after a business trip of two months to Paris. Asked as to the Lewis gun he said: "Let the gun ipeak for itself. I think it has spoken fairly well against the enemy in this world war. When I say that there were 200,000 in nso on the West front when the armistice wai? <igned and that every Allied country was using them; that they were used 'ive times more than any other gun in airplanes, I think nothing more need <?'<? said." _ Gottfried Kruger, a former judge of "'??// Jersey and a brewer with several plants in this country, returned on thc Noordam aft*r a trip to Gerrnany iUrted in V.iM. While abroad his br?wiag interests were taken over by tha Enemy Alien Property Custodian. He was accompanied by his son-in-law, James Smith. ?i % PER MONTH ON *??

Legless Minnesota Legislator Tells Wounded Soldiers How to Beat Fate Miciiael Dowling, onetime ward of i the charity commissioners of Yellow Medicino County, Minnesota, more re? cently prominent member of the Min? nesota Legislature and now leading citizen and president of thc National Bank oi" Olivia, Minn., known there as j the "biggcst man in Yellow Medicine," ! told 1,000 disabled soldiers and sailors '? in the llippodromo yesterday how he reached that place in life minus both ' legs, his left nrm and the fingcrs of j his right hand. "You fellows who've lost a leg or an arm want to cheer up," Dowling said to the disabled men who had come to the liippodrome in ambulances and sat in wheeling chairs, boxes and or? chestra seats. "Why, thc luckiest day in my life j was the day tho surgeons carved me up. I was fifteen years old then. You I know, it started that night back in i 1880 when I got lost in the big bliz j zard we had that year in Minnesota. I'd been riding in n lumber wagon , through that hell of snow and hail ! when the rig struck a hoio and I got I bumped off. "The fall stunned me. When I came ! to thc wagon had lumbered on. "Dug In" in Straw Pile "1*11 never l'orget that night, how I | crawled through the storm, and finally ) came to a straw piie and 'dug in.' The j cold was torrible. That was the long | est night in my life. "After nges the sun rose in the east ! and I crawled out, I could scarcely j walk. My knees were frozen stiff, my j elbows were like boards, and my two hands sounded like chunks of clay ! whpn 1 banged them together. I draggod myself to a farm house and j there they tried to fix me up. But it I was no use. "Then came the doctors' table, and when they finished I'd lost my two legs, my left arm and the flngers on the other hand. I wasn't much use, and. to make a long story short, I hit the trail to the poorhouse. "Then one day I called the commis sioners together and told them I-wanted them to put up enough money to send me to college for a year, and that after that I'd never aak another cent of Yel? low Medicine County's money. Nobody wanted to grubstakc poor Mike in those days, but finaliy they consented. Then my luck changed. I made up my mind to get something, and I did. AfJlictions Blessings in Disguise "It wasn't because of any ability on my part. 1 simply said 'I will' and I did. You boys will do the same, I know. You are the handicap lads, handicapped because you showed you could win the fight, handicapped by the Hun who couldn't. But you'il lind your afflictions blessings in disguise. The stumps of your legs will just be spurs that will goad you ahcad to success. "And don't let your folks coddle you or sympathizo with you. I know you'd rather stick your nosc in the blueberry pie than be spoon fed." Charles E. Ilughes, who presided, jumped up when Dowling finished and shouted: "That's the finest American speech I've ever heard. lt makes no dif ference what you've lost if you still have your heart and courage." Cripples Perform Normal Work The meeting was held in connec? tion with the international rchabilita tion congress under the auspices of the Red Cross Institute for Crippled and Disabled Men. Others who showed the disabled Americans how training fits crippled men for normal activi ties inciuded Charles Rennington, who despite a peg leg, holds the world'8 record for the high kick and is a prize buck and wing dancer; Charles I. Weibell, who with two artificial i legs can do acrobatic stunts, and Lew J \ oung. an armless Now York nuws boy, who buttoned and Iaced shoes, played bail, picked up coins and ham mered tacks into a tnblc on the plat form. Mr. Hughes declared thnt the gov? ernment would do everything in its powers to help men disabled in the war to become producing members of society. Delegates to the international con ierence werp nresont 50,000 Cheer As O'Ryan Pins Medals on Men Continued from page l Furrounded the moving picture in the centre of the meadow. More than 50, 000 men and women strained their eyes to catch every movement of the men who had stepped out of civilian life to take their places among the nation's hcroes. The immediate inside of the framo was studded with biue spots, where po licemen had been stationed to keep them outside the centre of activity. But tho good nature of the crowd alone prevented them from breaking in upon the ceremony, since the number of po icemen was obviously inadequate. The line of men decorated included: Corporal Ralph B. Sullivan, 104th Field Artillery. Private (flrst class) William B. Nette, 104th Field Artillery. Mechanlc Herbert M. Brink. 104th Field Artillery. Corporal George A. Dupree. 104th Field Artillery.

Lynch, 105th Infantry. Private Anthony Scalfonl, 105th Infantry. Private Dewitt W. Crandall. 108th Infantry Private Nahlon C. Ward, 108th Infantry. Second Lieutenant J. Gilmore. 106th Infantry. The 2d Battalion, "107th Infantry, whose members wore newly painted helmets and the equipment that car ried them through the Hindenburg line, headed by tho regimental band, paruded the oval, the sun striking bright rays from their fixed bayonets, their light equipment clanking to the accompaniment of a military air. The reviewing line was headed by General Thomas H. Barry nnd Major General John P. O'Ryan. With them stood Colonel W. H. Ksymond, chief of staff; Lieutenant Colonel William Starr, assistant chief of staff; Lieuten? ant Colonel Henry Sternberger, Lieu? tenant Colonel William L. Hallahan, Lieutenant Colonel J. Lcslio Kincaid, Major Matthew Carney, Colonel Walter C. Montgomery and Major Sidney G. DeKay. Then came tho little group of men in whose honor tho ceremony had been planned. When they first appeared in ! the oval there were but twenty-four ! among them. But they had scarcely ] formed in line before a limping soldier I hopped across the field and, with thc I aid of a cane, took his place ot ono |end of tho procession. Private Hage j meyer had decided not to remain _ among the abscnt, notwithstanding ! tho protests of hospital p'hysicians ' and nurses. Major Sidney De Kay, who offlci ; atod as master of ceremonies, an j nounced to the nervous heroes that 1 they were ready to bestow the dccor I ations. The men mnrchcd forward ' while the band played "Onward Chris j tian Soldiers." The intense sympathy ! of tho crowd was shown by an almost ; complete uilencc rather than by chcern. | During the entire ceremony hardly a ! man or woman stirred from his or her original position on the outer edge of thc oval. Major General Barry stcppcd for? ward when the men came to attention ! and delivered nn address that was as brief as it was impressive. He said: I "It goes without saying, and history | confirms it, that officers and onlisted men of the American army are gallant. ' and intrepid in action at all times, and ' therefore, to ho clearly entitled to the distinction awarded, one must go bc? yond the usual acts expected of Ameri? can soldiers, and the bestownl of such honors upon you means that you are distinguished and marked above your comrades, who are especially noted for such characteristics. Highest Distinction Possible "There is no distinction that can be conferred upon the American soldier that exceeds the distinction thus con ferred upon you, when fully merited, as in your cases. It seems needless for me to remind you that the honors thus conferred upon you carry thc rcspon sibility that from now on you must maintain in peace and war such stand? ards of personal and official conduct that no blot may ever come to the dis? tinction you have gaincd. "With all others in your stale and country;, I glory in your great achieve ments in war, and I know it must bc a gn-nt satisfaction to you all to havo theso honors conferred upon you at home and in the presencc of your mofchers, wives, swecthenrts and friends. "I know it will be a great honor to have the crosses pinned upon vou by the distinguished commander who led you most efficiently in all your battles ; over there, and 1 therefore ask General O'Ryan, as your names are called. to so honor you and hirnseif." The commander of tho division stepped forward and, with but a word of greeting to the men, began pinning the dtcorations upon their breasts. With each D. S. C. went a hearty hand clasp that made even these veterans of Flanders fields wince. When General O'Ryan had pinned the last cross upon the last khaki coat in the line Major P. II. Cheffaud, of the 29(Uh French Infantry, represent? ing the French republic, stcpned for? ward to present the mcdals of his own government. The first was pinned upon the coat of Private Gallaghcr, who blushed and seemed surprised when the trim French officer failed to imprint a kiss upon his cheeks, as no had been told was the practice. Instead his hand was grasped in much the same mnnner as had his comrades who received American hon? ors. Second Lieutenant Gilmore was the second member of the division named for the French Cro*s, but his inability to bo present made it nocessary for j thc emblem to be returned to Major j General O'Ryan for bestownl later. The third bronze wus delivered to tho ' brother of Private Ressner, who, in | civilian clothes, stood at the end of I the line. Honor Men Review Troops Then came the review of the bat? talion by the men. This ia thc only ! occasion upon which privates may re- | view troops?another evidence of the , desire of the army to do honor to the men who had served their country so well. The crowdB broke forth into | wild checrr for thc first time when, | with colors flying and band playing, ! tho battalion passed in front of the I lino of men on whose breasts wero l exbibited their newly received decora- i tions. Ah the last man of the marching sol- : diers passed the little line of heroes in the centre of the oval, the patience of the crowd nppeared to be cxhausted. ln spito of protcsts from futile police? men, men and women rushed forward and captured the twenty-fivc horocs. They swarmed over the field, oblit erating every vestige ot' order and lit erally carrying their prizes before them. Major General 0 Ryan and his party were caught in the rush, but ac- ' cepted their fatc good naturedly. It was the hour of the heroes of the 27th. Nothing else mattered. Wounded of 27th Back Too Late lo See Parade Scattcred among three troopships that came in yesterday from Brest were thirty-fivo men of the 27th Di? vision who returned as wounded cas uals. They bad great hopes of seeing the big parade on Tuesday, but wero informed at the port ot embarkation in Hobokcn thnt they could not have leave until VVodnesduy. The men protested thnt they were wounded while lighting with the 27th and that they should bo pormitted to see the parade of their comrades. They said that if they were well enough to leave convalesccnt hospitals in France they were well enough to bo pormitted leave on Tuesday. Edward D. Miller, of Brooklyn, who spokc for the group, ?ai di "We want lo see tho parade the worst. way, and it looks aa if we were going to see It th? worMt way, namely, from Camp Upton." 8,000 Men of I 27th Division Storm the City The Balance of 13,000 Will Arrive To-day, Prepared for Extensive Schedule of Dinners and Shows Preliminaries LTneertain All Sections Plan Their Own Receptions; Parade Preparations Move On By the process of infiltration, a sys? tem used successfully where the Ger? man machine guns were wickedest, the '27th Division began yesterday the con quest of New York. Approximately 8,000 young veterans of the final clashes with the gray defendcrs of the Hindenburg line rolled in on troop trains from Camps Merritt and Mills, and spent their first peace time night in nearly two years in the city from which they went; forth to war. To-day the remaining units, com prising about 13,000 men, will begin arriving shortly after daylight, nnd be? fore noon the city will be compietely in their hands. Then will start the welcome New York has waited to ex? tend since the armistice was signed. Everything it has in the way of en? tertainment will bc thoirs, and the en tertaining will end only with the climacteric pageant of heroes on Fifth Avenue to-morrow. After that, the 26,000 young soldiers of the old National Guard, longing to exchange the khaki for mufti, will dine at scvcnty-five hotels ann clubs. Then they will shoulder packs, perhaps for the last time, and go to Camp Upton, where, it was said yesterday, the eager ly awaited discharges probably will be? gin coming through the army mill Thursday. The New York men who arrived in the city yesterday were permitted to spend the night at their homes and will have two more nights between sheets before they go back to camp Wednesday morning^ to be mustered out. The men arriving to-day will have to-night and Tuesday night at home. There will be four preliminary pa rades to-day, and, if anything, taking the soldier point of view, too much en tertaining. Officers and men who were in the city yesterday said they had been left too little time for themselves. Tickets were distributed yesterday among the various units of the division for twenty mntinees nnd other after? noon events and two boxing carnivals at night. It was announeed at the same time by officials of the Mayor's Committee of Welcome that attondance would be compujfsory; that is, the men who get the tickets?and thousands were rent yesterday to the armories and camps - will "fall in" and march to the theatres under command of junior officers. Must Attend Boxing Douts The same rule will be in force, it was stated, with refcrence to the two box? ing shows at the Coast Artillery Arm? ory at Kingsbridge jfcul Madison Square Garden, which was relinquished for the event through the courtesy of tho Ring ling-Barnum & Hailey Circus. The boxing will be almost exclusively for the enlisted men, for the officers of the division, numberjhg about 000, after tho banquet to be given at the Wa'ldorf Astoria by the mayor's committee, will go to the Century in a uody to witness the opening of the division's own show, "Let's Beat It." Throngs of citizens, with here and there a man of the 27th on leave ob servable in the crowds, got a prelimi? nary view yesterday of the elaborate decorations on the line of the parade j to-morrow. Last night clusters of' flood lights illuminated the Victory] Arch at. Fifth Avenue and T'wenty-flfth Street, which will be finished to-day, I and the huge illumination at Sixtieth j Street glowed a preliminary welcome until midnight. Great crewa of decorators were busy throughout yesterday all along Fifth Avenue, particularly at the Arch and at the Public Library. Paul Bartlett, president of the Society of American Sculptors, and Thomas' Ilastings, de? signer of the great Victory Arch, who have charge of the official decorations. were at work all day, white from head to foot with the flying dust of plaster. Arch Is Nearly Completed The Victory group surmounting the arch was completed and the scaffolding removed from the towering structurc of the arch itself on the north side. The scaffolding on the south side will bc re? moved to-day. The glistening white columns, joined by floral chains, which line the south? ern approach to the arch, also were completed. The captive balloons, fos tooned with pennants and bunting, were inflated nnd tested at their anchorage in Madison Square adjoining this colonnade and the Altar of Vic? tory, which have forced the sombre Where fynits of 27th Aicait Call to Parade u JNITS of tlJe 27th Division have been ; assigned'-to armories as follows in preparation for the parade to-morrow: ] Headquarte'-s Detachmont and Troop I r>0 officers. 3r>.-> men; 69th Regiment Armory, Lexington Avenue and Twenty seventh Street.

Rodman Wanamaker. chairman of the Mayor's committee, had his associ? ates in session all afternoon with In spector O'Brien and police officials who have charge of thc traffic arrangements for to-morrow. Armories Are Preparing Work parties also were busy at the various armories of Manhattan and The Bronx getting ready for the in flux of men which will begin early this morning. Mess sergeants were arrang ing for rationing, working with Y. M. C, A. officials and agents of the War Camp Community Service and the I Red (,'ross, who are concerned with the ; same thing. The V. M.

During the afternoon trucks de? livered 1,200 benches at various points on Fifth Avenue for tho 6,000 wounded | soldiers from the various military hos pitals in the city. Scores of business : houses aloitg the avenuo have for warded invitations to the hospitals to send wounded men to them during the parade Tuesday, but it was stated last night that only those for the accom modation of ten or more wounded men will be acccpted. lt has been found: impracticable to stop the ambulancea < to let ofl' only one or two men. Wounded Men "trrlvlng Wounded men from hospitals in other cities began to arrive last night. But somo of the disabled men of the j 27th quartered elsewhero in New York ! State will not have an opportunity! to witness the welcome to be accorded I their eommand in recognition of the I record it. made in the war. Lack of funds for transportation will provent. One case mentioned last. night. was; that of tho wounded in Buffalo. Cap? tain James Wadsworth, o? the '..'7th : Headquarters Troop, who is attached j to the advance party al, the Biltmore I said a letter had been received from the secretary to the Mayor of Buffalo, stating that no funds were available! there to provide for transportation. ?One or two other inslances were re? ported. Five hundred seats have been pro? vided for the wounded ln front of thc | Public Library. Space has been re- j served here also for the veterans of the Civil and Spanish wars. Shell uhock patients from the Gun Hill Hos? pital will be seated between Fifty [ ninth and Sixtieth streets, on the camouflaged stand on the west sidc of | ; the avenue. These men will have at- j tendantB, under charge of medical ofl'i- i ! cers. Places for Red Cross Nurses Insistence that the Red ( ross nurses' lhave places reserved for them elicitod a response from the Mayor's commit? tee. It was announeed that seats for 275 had been reserved next the shell shock cases. Twenty-one hundred severely wound? ed men from the Grand Central Palace Hospital will occupy automobile trucks uarked at each intersection between Forty-fifth and Fifty-first streets. Those better able to get about will be ac commodated in the covered stand erected by Henry C. Frick in front of his residence on Lenox Hill. Medical officers will be with all con tingents of wounded men. Ambulances will be in rcadiness to take back to the hospitals all for whom the strain proves too exhausting. 'Buses for the same purpose have been provided by Miss Helen Frick. 'Buses tilled with convalescents from the Polyclinic Hospital will park on the west side of Fifth Avenue, atFifty fourth Street. Two large parties of wounded men will be entertained dur? ing the parade by J. M. Giddings and the Julius C. Kurzman Company at their nlaces of business on Fifth Ave? nue. Arrangements for the various pre? liminary parades in Harlcm, Washing? ton Heights and The Bronx, ard that of the 107th Infantry in review past com rades of the old 7th at the Union League Club will depend as to time upon the arrival of the troops. The first troops will leave the camps shortly after 5 o'clock this morning, according to schedules announeed last night. Troop trains will continue to move into the city until after 1 o'clock. The 107th Infantry will not arrive from Camp Merritt until 1:15, a dis? patch from the camp stated last night. and tho programme calling for the re? view at the Union League Club at 11:30 will have to be revised to that extent. The regiment will be entrained in two sections, the first of which will arrive at. 12:45 and the second at 1:15. The 102d Ammunition Train, which is to march in Washington Heights, is due to arrive at the 129th Stveet pier at 10 o'clock, with the 102d Sanitary Train. The 108th Infantry will reach tho same pier either shortly before or shortly after, depending upon the time of leaving Alpine, N. J. Dinner at Waldorf at 6 o'Clock The dinnei to the officers of the 27th at tho Waldorf-Astoria will begin at 8 o'clock. The entire Thirty-fourth Street side of the hotel has been re? served for the. event, including tne Grand Ballroom. the Astor Gallery and the Myrtlc and East rooms. Thc ban quet is expected to end about 9 o'clock to permit thc officers to bc taken to the Century Theatre in time for the opening of "Let's Beat It," which will be delayed until 9:15. Signs on the doors of business houses all through the city yesterday served notice that they would be closed all dny Tuesday.
