The story of that bnnd nnd Us ndentures over seas Is an American epic. Here nre Just a few sidelights. One day last summer there was a reat band concert held in the Tulle'rles Gardens In Paris for the benefit of the families wounded by Big Bertha' Thirty thousand people paid $5 admission. Thd elite of the world's military musicians wcro there the band of the French Republican Guard, with more than 100 members; the British Grenadiers, with nearly as many;' the Royal Italian Band, with nlrfety. And with these famous organizations was one other a band of ' American colored boys, gathered to gether only a year before at Camp Dlx. And as Lieutenant Jim Europe says, with that bread delightful drollery that sblnes in , his beaming brown face : "Why people left those wonderful bands and came over to listen to us, I don't know I I was scared to death. S I thought, well, at last they ot me ; they're goln' to knock mo off my perch. I said to my boys, now listen: You can't make as much noise as those bands, so for heaven's sake, don't try. Jus" be a ill' sweet soft lullaby band." Jim Europe chuckled. Jaiz Made 'Km Wild "We opened up with 'Plantation Echoes,' " he said. "That ends with 'Dixie.' You ought to have seen that crowd. They threw up their hats and carried on like crazy people We looked over at those other bands. All you j could see over there was Instruments. The crowd was all wild to hear that ' jazz stuff of ours. Xo, I don't see why 'anybody should leae those knely bands 'to listen to us." If you've ever heard Jim Europe's "hell fighters' play, or have seen Jim Europe smile and sway on his limber pegs as he rides that tumultuous. Intoxi cation of roaring, sparkling melody, , you'll know why the air In the Tulllertes was black with flying hats. From that day the band of the 369th Tnlted Ftates Infantry became the most famous band In the world. The story of Jim Europe's jazz band, told In his own words, ripples with the high sj'lrits and mellow humor of the colored race. Everybody knew Jim was marked for glory when he was born Sown In old Mobile on Washington's Birthday In '81. Before the war he , fled Vernon Castle's orchestra at Castle ' House In New York, and wrote music 'for some of the big Broadway shows. He enlisted as a private In a machlne ' gun company and was sent to Camp ' Dlx. He was commissioned a first lieu tenant. They soon got him to work organizing the regimental band. Ort ZIO.OOO Donation It costs money to build up a flrht-ohiss Band, and Dnn Held, the tlnplate king, came across with $10,000 to help make a band that would uut the fear of King Jazz In Teuton hearts. Jim traveled all over the country gathering his talent. He got his reed section from Porto Rico, - picked up his brass from Hampton Tus kegee, Wllberforee wherever he could find It. The band of the 369th mighty soon became the talk of Camp Dlx. When they left for overseas the life of tne cantonment was gone. Jim Europe Is not only a boss musi cian but a first-class fighting man, and the army for some time couldn't make up Its mind which way to use him. On the way over. In December, 1917, he Tvns transferred back to his machine-gun com pany. Things looked bad for the band. But by a lucky chance E. H. Sothern and Wlnthrop Ames passed through San Vazalre and heard the band play. Doing Stevedore Work "I wut doing stevedore work," says Jim "Regular Simon Legrec sjuff. Everybody iwas just then. Sothern and Ames heard us and said we ought to po to the new rest center at AI.-les-, Bains. I was retransl'red to the band. Wis played there for several wejks. When our regiment was sent to the trenches the soldiers and citizens of AIx sent a petition to General Pershing asking him to keep the band there." That's the chief trouble Jim's band has .

It runs thta way : "Wo may be attacked now at any mo ment. We arc powerfully re-enforced In Infantry and nrtlllcry. You all are con- l vlnced that never a defensive battle was iougni uncicr more ravornme conumons. We are Informed. Wo arc on the watch. The assault will be fierce. You will stand It without losing courage. "The bombardment will bo terrible. In a cloud of dust, of smoke nnd of gas. But your position and armament aro, formidable. In your breasts beat brave, strong hearts of frco men. "Nobody will look back. Nobody will turn back one step. "You will have only one thought. Kill. Kill many, until they have enough of It. That Is why your general tells you, that assault you will break It. And It will ho a beautiful day. OOUHAIID." .lint In Time for llnttle Jim Europe took up thp tale. "We w come oft we'd nil have beoi killed sure enough. We, were the only negro troops J? g w'th tho army of occupation, nnd ih iim1 of ,he Allle(1 troops t0 rench i? . A "e wcnt alS we saw wnat wo would have been up against, wire entanglements five kilometers deep, artillery could have blasted at that stuff nil day without breaking It up.

Blodelshelm had a population of ...uui ciKiuy and and Ing we walked back to Belfort, took those wagons, hommlng chevauxlng back to Brest." "What did you boys think of the French colored troops7" Lieutenant Europe was asked. Wonderful Flirlitrrn "Oh, those Senegalese they're ter rible fellows'" said Jim, grinning. "Man, those boys arc blue black' They're wonderful fighters, but they have to have wine. 'No champagne, no fighting' they Mild when they were put In to hold Khclms. They gave those boys a bottle of champagne at every meal, nnd they kept tho Germans out of Rhetms. "The Germans were scared to death of those fellows. When they saw us coming they thought Wo were the same. When we got Into Germany they ran and shut up their houses. I was a week In Blodelshelm before I knew any one lived there.

No matter how I thick the shells are falling, those French officers wilt get out a little table nnd put a nnpkln on It and go on eating course nfter course. When their friends are killed they shrug their shoulders nnd say, 'C'est la guerre. If you tell a Frenchman the Germans have some red wine they'll take that lmsltlon sure. The French Uovernriient sees that their soldiers have red wine first nnd ammu nition second. Can't neat French "I don't bellevo In this bravery busi ness. It's your pride. If a man was scared to death, with fellows like those French round him ho just couldn't leave them.

We marched six davs and livo nights and got Into Alsace where tho' peoplo talk a kind of Cnlnese language a patois of half French half German. We walked to St. Amarln. we walked to , Bltschwlllcr, we walked to Thann, walk ing all the time.

When anybody hears It they want It to stick around for the rest of their lives. It took General Gouraud to get the band back to the front, once Paris heard It. "In March, 1918," snys Jim, "we went up to the trenches In tho Argonne sector, an"d I was retransferred to my machine gun company. By tho way, I was tne first negro officer to command troops in the trenches. I stayed In the trenches' from March to July, then they re-re-transferred me back to the band. We were sent to Paris to play for the Al lied conference arranged by General Bliss. We stayed bIx weeks. After the leader of the Republican Guard Band heard us play Jazz he asked for some of our music. I showed It to him. He wanted to know how wo got our jazz effects 'I don't see that on th paper," ho said. 'It lin't there 1 told him. You have to train your boys to get that stuff." Jazz Is Not i:asj "Iots of people think jazz is cib.v. It's ns hard as nnythlng. The French band masters thought we had trick Instru ments. They'd ask to examine our In struments and then cry In surprise: 'Meme que les nutres' 'The same as tho others:' You see we get those speC.nl effects with a roll of the tongue and blowing the instrument about twice ns hard as usual. "Those were great dajs In Paris," says Jim, with a reminiscent grin. "As I walked nround gargling in French, with every one In the world going crazy over our jazz stufT, I felt like President Wilson must feel over there with every body around him. We played In all the hospitals In Paris. They all wanted us to stay there forever, But General Gouraud said we vvcie too good for Paris. He wanted us back at the front. We were in his nrmj, you see. He's a great fighting man, he's had nil his .arms shot away and half of his legs." 'Tin a Vlglltine Iland Jim Kurope's band is a fighting band anyway. Jim wears on his shoulder tho rattlesnake emblem of the French Fourth Army Corps, with which the 369th was brigaded throughout Itn fighting dcys. Jim savs the French nre the tincst fight ers in the world, but General Gouraud must think pretty well of his American colored boys, as he decorated their flag I with the Croix de Guerre.
