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
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
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.

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.

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
"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

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
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.

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.
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
"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
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?
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
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
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?

all agreed on this:?
The responsibility of every Ameri?
can citizen to-day is to do every?
thing possible to secure jobs for our
returning fighting men.
The U. S. Employment Service

the organization through which
we should all work.
Your part, Mr. Employer, is to
list, and to keep listed, with the
