Army Orders Destroying
Natural Ambush of the
PARIS, Aug. 24.?(Special)?The
j beard of the Krencli soldier is doom
j ed in an army order dlrocting that
f | :he men at the front shave all hu'.
? I mustaches. The order brought an
| outburst of humorous and ironic dls

\ to which some of the famous French

* Jean Richepin, the dramatist, writ

| "The beard is gone. but what is

J is courage that grows. Let the
? beard fall and French courage grow"
J Edmond Rostand celebrates the
j beard in verse as a symbol of "ail
beauty of all France, a soul, a jowei.
" a torch, a prod."
Henri Bergson says:
"I am not afraid to go as far as
to say that a visage is matter while
thc beard is mind."
Relieves Army of "Useless Weight"
August Rodin, the sculptor, says:
".Men without beards, women with
out sox, statues without heads, bod
ies without arms, humanity without
weakness, t.iaf is my opinion."
Maurice Barres gravely r?giots
the beard, which he says was " a her
itage of long ago in which the dead
lived again and which hound iih so
" mysteriously to tho soil." He adds:
! "It was part of the war and of our
1 ? courage."
I! Henri Battille mourns the beard

!! tender, somewhat timid and a little
!! Gen. Pierre Cherfils, reasoning

.. cause "the beard of a trooper weighs
on an average of 60 grammes. With
