IIL. ill iTftssfslL-walllll assures. mis' i i i is issss.-araei VISIT TO AMERICAN CAMP DESCRIBED BY CLEMENGEAU By SEXATOIl GEORGES CLEMEN- CEAU. (Former Prime Minister of France.) International News Service. PARIS, Oct. 3, by mall to New York, OcL 20. I wanted to see the Americana and I visited their camp. It was not Idle curiosity that led me to their quarters during my recent trip to the front. The traditional French sympathy for the United States and Its wonderful people, deepened by the active renewal of s common alliance of thought that has endured for 140 years and resulted In the armed Intervention of the great republic and the presence of its troops within the fighting lines, all combined to draw me to the American camp to present the salutations of a French friend to the young men who have come out of the West to give battle to the barbarians to drive them back under the Intertwined flags of America and France And then why not admit It frank ly? I wanted to see. as much ai the men whose reputation for audac ity and lntrepedlty is world-wide, their organization and how they are adapting themselves In the shortest possible time, to conditions of war- rare that found even the oldest arm ies In Europe unprepared. Struck by Morale. Above alL I was struck by the morals that this race from across the sea inspired In presenting Itself before us as the disinterested cham pion of right without any thought of conquest or gain. It was Sunday morning when I arrived and a Sabbath stillness per vaded the entire camp. A number of soldiers were stretched out In the fields while others were perched on plled-up stones, which they seemed to find easy seats.
