PARIS, July 4. Paris went wild
with enthusiasm today in acclaiming
its gratitude to America.
Its millions cheered themselves
hoarse as a battalion of Pershing's
bronzed veterans swung along in pa
rade, eagerness to get at the foe ap
pearing in every snappy step.
They cheered again so thunder
ously that the whole city seemed
a-roar as they espied General Persh
ing himself and their own idol
"Papa" Joffre hurrying in automo-
J biles.
I The first program of France's old-
time celebration of the glorious
Fourth was the presentation of
flags to the American commander,
Pershing, at the Invalides. There
the great crowd was surrounded by
troops massed four deep.
Nobles Cheer.
The greatest nobles of France were
assembled In the center and they, like
the populace and the troops them
selves, cheered as the Stars and
Stripes were presented.
Pershing and his staff then motored
across the city to the cemetery.
The military review came later
through streets that blazed with
American colors and the tricolor of
France, and were lined with cheer
ing throngs Never has Paris seen
such a display of enthusiasm.
The same battalion of American
troops that were the heroes of this
occasion will leave tomorrow for the
permanent camp of the American ex
peditionary army "somewhere in
France" and somewhere near the bat

Their comrades, now at "A French
