BIG STIR IN FRANCE
I
Paris Music Lovers Ignored
' World's Masters ' to Hear
Plantation Melodies
And Now Lieutenant Jim
Europe Brings Them Here
and Scores Encore
Lieutenant Jim Europe Is In town
"With his colored Jatz bund. 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

LIEUTENANT JIM EUROPE
negro voice, one can see In his etes what
that comradeship with their French com
panions In arms meant. 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. All the
wire connected with cables charged with
electricity. Roads all mined. They put
i .i muI1 to 1,cai ,ne triumphal march
to the Rhine. Just after we got over one
,. in" .r1a'1 thej stopped all tho others
while that road blew up.

m'T? ue.pt on wnlh'nir and we got to
IlIodelRhelm on tho Rhine, south of Xeu
,C. ' . Ve Rot ,,,ero on nfternoon
the Hushes had left that morning. We
stayed there walking up and down nnd
watching the fish. It was thero we
underwent the worst hardshlim of tho
war. 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.

Then by and by we did some more walk- have nerves like steel. 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.

"I don't bellevo In this bravery busi

scared to death, with fellows like those
French round him ho just couldn't leave
them. You see them In Pnrls, ail per
fumed, with their hair Bllcked back and
those blue gloves with white linings,
nnd then you go up to tho front and

Dunne, between Verdun and Rhelms. We
were' In what they call reserve positions
w(th the artillery, but, believe me, there
were plenty of misspent shells falling I
nround. Three of our bandsmen were
killed there. Wc plugged nwny up to
Vouziers. Our regiment lost all but one .
battalion In that business. Where 103
olllcers went In, thirteen came out.
"Then we went to a so-called rest ,
sector In the Vosges. We walked so
long I thought France was just slipping
away. 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

go up and down like this " Jim
slanted a newspaper as near perpendicu
lar as he dared "and the Germans
could roll their stuff down on ui like in
ten pin game. I
"We were all set for n big attack on
November 12, but the armistice came j

always had. 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."

Jim savs the French nre the tincst fight
