man,'acts as hiis interpreter. Generally
conversations through an interpreter
are stilted. But ';!ie captain was such
an excellent interpreter that our talk

words in French the Marshal's eyes
would twinkle e-nd he, seemed to bt1

'Oui! Ouo.!'
"Likewise he would s. iile and utter
a quick. 'Oui!' when he caught a
familiar word or two of English that
gave him an ink lint? : s to what we

"Gen. Foch is se 'ire-shouldered

sturdily b-.iilt. He is perhaps below
medium height, .but tbit isn't .so ap

manner. His ?ve.s are steady and keen
