French Marshal Recalls the
Tragic Day When America
Put Trust in Him
Stnlls, Nov. 14.—General John J.
Pershing, commander of the Ameri
can forces in France, conferred upon
Marshal Foch, the commander in
chief of the Allied armies, the Amer
ican Distinguished Service medal. The
presentation was made following the
signing of the armistice, in the name
of President Wilson at the villa where
Marshal Foch has his headquarters
and was an impressive ceremony.
In accepting the emblem. Marshal
Foch said:
"I want to say to you that I shall
never forget that tragic day in March
when, stirred by a generous impulse,
you came and placed at my disposi
tion the entire resources of your
army. To-day we have gained the
greatest battle in history and saved
the most sacred cause—the liberty of
the world.
"An important part Is due to the
action undertaken and well carried
through by the American army upon
the two banks of the Meuse. For
the Inst two month* the American
has fought In a most difficult region
n fierce and ceaseless. The complete
success of his struggle Is due to the
fine qualities dlsplnyed by all."
Insurance War Risks
Lifted; Policies Will
Be Paid Face Value
W. H. Cordry, general agent for
the Massachusetts Mutual Life In
surance Company, • to-day received
the following telegram from the
headquarters of the company in
"No further extra premiums for
war service will be required. Pre
miums already collected will be re
funded as early as possible., The
death claims on military risks who
have not paid extra premiums will
be paid in full."
This is the first announcement of
the kind to reach Harrisburg and
will be good news to holders of the
policies affected. The order, being
retroactive, will result in additional
payments to the face of the policy
where death claims had been paid on
the reserve basis in cases where the
extra premium had not been paid.
New York. —"A man with the ex-
Kaiser's capacity for murder should
not be permitted to become a men
ace to the rebuilding of Europe,"
said Frederic Courtland Pentleld, last
United States ambassador to Austria-
Hungary. "If England had the
right to make a prisoner of the
great Napoleon, the Allies and their
co-belligerents should readily find a
way to restrain the liberty of the
arch-criminal of all times. Devil's
Island might be a place to keep
the great disciple of militarism who
liees into a neighboring neutral coun
try when finding that the jig with
him is up."

Dr. William E. Wright Has
Charge of New Free
Free information and advice on
any problem nffecting menial health
will hereafter be available to the
citizens of Harrlsburg and vicinity
through a free mental clinic which
opened for the first time this after
noon. Dr. William E. Wright, of
Harrisburg, will have the direction
of the work. On one afternoon each
week he will be present In the rooms
of tlie Bureau of Medical Inspection in
the School Administration betiding
in Chestnut street to consult with
those who are laboring under any
mental or handicap.
At a meeting of representatives o*
more than a score of the social, civic
and medical societies of Harrisburg
held in the School Administration
building yesterday a permanent Men
tal Hygieno Committee was organiz
ed. Dr. C. R. Phillips will act as
chairman and Austin Miller as secre
tary of the organization.
Mrs. William Henderson who, with
Dr. C. R. Phillips and Austin Miller,
signed the call for the meeting, pre
sided. The purpose of the clinic was
explained by Kenneth L. M. Pray,
secretary of the Charities
Association of Pennsylvania, which
was instrumental in organizing the
movement in this city and elsewhere
in the state. He emphasized the fact
that the aim of the work was not
merely to give aid to those who were
actually suffering from any .TIT: of
mental disease or defect, but that
its chief purpose was to offer advice
and help to those who were being
hindered or hampered in their regu
lar work by mental difficulties that
were hardly recognized by them or
those around them.
He indicated the many ways in
which the clinic would be useful, for
example, to social agencies and to
those who were served by them. In
the course of their work, he said,
they often came upon individual and
family problems of poverty, sickness,
or even worse, which were due not
so much to economic or ijhyslcai i
causes as to a wrong mental altitude
or mental incapacity 10 perform the
normal duties. Such persons could
be greatly helped if the mental fac
tor in the case could be promptly
identified, and the work of the
agency, as well as the happiness of
the individual, would be greatly
The enthusiasm with which the
clinic project was received by the
leprescntatlves of these agencies was ]
clearly shown by the remarks of
Superintendent Dowries, of the pub
lic schools, who showed how the
work of the clinic would help to
guide the teachers in the treatment
and training of their exceptional pu
pils. Austin Miller, who explained
that much of the problem of secur
ing regular attendance arose from
difficulties that could be reached, in
part at least, by the clinic; Miss M.
G. Gottshall, and Miss Mary K. Mil
ler, representing the Associated Aid
Societies, the Visiting Nurse Society,
and other social agencies, who gave
specific instances arising in their
work where the mental examination
and treatment would be an important
help in meeting social problems; Dr.
Jesse Lenker, and Henry B. McCor
iniek. who gave the project the em
phatic endorsement of the medical
profession in Harrisburg and pledged
on behalf of the hospitals the most
earnest co-operation.
Professor Norbert J. Melville, Di
rector of the Psychological Labora
tory of the School of Pedagogy in
Philadelphia and special secretary of
the Public Charities Association, gave
a very interesting side-light o.i the
work of the clinic as a result of his
experience in the mental examination
of recruits at army camps. He point
ed out that the exporince of the army
| and navy demonstrated that by a
little foresight and by the thorough
study of each appl'cant for enlist
ment, the government had been able,
not only to weed out of its forcer,
those who would be liable to failure
under stress in the field, but had
also proved the possibility of adopting
the treatment and training of those
who were found to be suffering frcm
mental handicap to tne Individual
needs and capacities of each man,
I thereby restoring many to useful
service tlther in the army or at home.
The clinic aimed, he said, simply to
apply the same principles and ex-,
perience to civil life.
I The regular Sabbath service to lie
held in Ohev Sholom Synugogue to
morrow evening, at 7:45 o'clock, will
be featured by patriotic and religious
music, special prayers of thanksgiv

A word of tribute must be paid to the Boy Scouts who cheerfully gave up their time to getting supplies
ready for the workers in the X T ntted War Work campaign. For ten days, while the schools were closed —due
to the "flu" epidemic, these boys chose to utilize the time for war work rather than play, and every day
reported to United War Work headquarters, sticking to the job from 9 o'clock in the morning until 4 in the
afternoon, Saturdays included.
They handled upwards of one hundred thousand pieces of literature, counting them out in lots of tens,
collecting the various sets together and placing them in envelopes, to be turned over in complete shape to
the various workers. More than 1,250 such envelopes were thus prepared.
In. addition, they distributed posters to all parts of the city, and gave up one whole day —Saturday:—to the
distribution of literature from door to door.
They have demonstrated that the Boy Scout slogan, 'Do a Good Turn Daily," is something more than
mere words.

no material lowering of freight and

authoritatively yesterday. Both are
likely to remain at their present

road wages now are not as high as
those puid for similar service in

Chi mai/ Delirious Over Signing of Armistice; Mistake War
Writers For Allied Officers; Draw Them Into Cele
bration; Silent German Envoys in Background
With the French Army In France,
Nov. 14.—Celebrations or the sign
ing of the armistice have been gen
eral over the entire front held by
the French troops. The demonstra
tions were participated in both by
the soldiers and the people in lib
erated villages.
Chi may Delirious Over Peace
At Ohimay the population was de
lirious with joy. The war corres
pondents pussing through the town
were taken for Allied army officers
and were drawn into the proces
sions and compelled to join in the
singing of the Allied national an
Crowds gathered in front of the
French colonel's headquarters and
joined hands, danced, sang and
cheered the French, British and
Americans in turn. Hidden stores
came forth from most unsuspected
places as the rejoicings went on.
Meanwhile columns of French troops
and convoys with supplies tiled
along the roads leading into Belgium
with the same methodical regularity
as during the days of pursuit.
French Celebrate at Night
The only really visible manifesta
tions of the joy of the French sol
diers came with nightfall on Mon
day when lighted fuses shot into the
air all along the front, star shells
bursting sometimes singly and some
times in clusters. Camp fires and
bonfires lighted up the bivouacs all
through the advanced zone. The
fireworks displays went on all night
They were witnessed from a con
voy of seven powerful motor cars
that made a halt at Guise about
eight o'clock in the evening to re
plenish the gasoline reservoirs. In
the lead of this convoy and in the
rear were French cars, while the
othei; curs bore on their sides the
Imperial black eagle. At the sight
of this unmistakable mark of iden
tity, crowds of French soldiers
gathered around the convoy to get
a sight of the German envoys wh

Envoys Keep Out of Sight
Only the younger officers alighted
in the mud during the replenishing
operations. The gathering crowd
watched the other cars in order to
catch a sight of the notable mem
bers of the part#, but in vain. Not
a shout nor even a loud remark
was heard from "the prowd of on
lookers. 'The Incident passed in
such grave quiet on the part of the
French that the low conversation
of the German officers gathered
round the car.i was audible. When
the-big machines rolled away in the
mist toward Belgium the throng
broke up without once having lack
ed consideration for the representa
tives of the fallen power.
Saw Hun War .Machine Weaken
At un early hour in the morning
the same road taken by the envoys
was followed in the opposite direc
tion by two French soldiers who
perhaps were the last two captives
of the waa to make their escape.
They had been tuken prisoner dur
ing the battles of July on the
Chateau Thierry salient und were
kept just behind the lines. During
the entire retreat they saw the de
clining phases of Germany's mili
tary power. They were able to con
firm the impression that the lack of
transportation equipment was cne
of the causes of the tinal breakdown
of the great fighting machine.
With American and British pris
oners the men took the places of
horses and motors that were lack
ing and dragged back heavy gens
in the successive retreats to the
! Belgian frontier. They witnessed
j the gradual crumbling of the mar
j velous organization that in spite of
i the dwindling of equipment and con
stantly diminishing facilities for
: movement had maintained order in
| the withdrawal of troops and ma
terial nearly to the last minute and
I prevented the retreat from turning
jinto an immense military disaster.

Envoys Say Time For Evacua

German People of Fault
By Associated Press
I*ii rlN, Nov. 14.—A decimation sentj
to the French government early this,
week by the German plenipotentiar
ies who went to Marshal Foch's head
quarters to sign the armistice be
tween the Allies and Germany, lias
been published here. It protests I
against some features of the terms
agreed to by • the Germans and to
which they objected verbally at their
lirst meeting with Marshal Foch. The
declaration reads:
"The German government will nat
urally make every effort to aid in the
carrying out ol the obligations im
posed upon it. Its plenipotentiaries
recognize that on certain points a
conciliatory spirit has been shown to-!
ward their suggestions. They can,!
consequently, consider the observa
tions which they submitted on No
vember 9, referring to conditions of
the armistice, and the reply they re
celveed on November 10 as forming an
integral part of the complete con
Fear Wrath of German People
"They cannot, however, permit any
doubt to exist on the fact that the
shortness of the delay tlxed for eva
cuation and the handing over of in
dispensable means of transport,
threatens to provoke a state of atTairs
which, without the German govern
ment and people being at fault, m iy
render the execution of the conditions
of the armistice impossible. The pleni
potentiaries further consider it their
duty, referring to their reiterated ver
bal and written declarations, to state
once more with the utmost energy
that the execution of this convention
must throw the German people Into
anarchy and famine.
"After the public manifestation
which preceded the laying down of
the armistice, conditions might have
been expected which while giving our
adversaries full military security,
would have put an end to the suffer
ing of noncombatant women and chil
dren. The German people which, for
fifty morths has held out against a
world of enemies, will maintain its
liberty and unity despite every vio
BiiMel, Nov. 14.—Declaring the new

sponsibie for the faults of the old
regime In Germany, a manifesto has
been sent from Munich to the new
federal government of Germany, ask
ing that complaint over the condi

agreed to by Germany in stopping
hostilities are of such a nature as to
prevent rapid re-establishment, of or

A Basel dispatch earlier in the week
reported that the Bavarian govern

comedy situations.
The Majestic's headline attraction
the last half of the current week Is a
dramatic aketch entitled
At tlie "The Protector," presented
MujeMtlc by Thurlow Bergen and a
cast of competent players.
Tlie Edith C'avell incident forms the
basis of the story, which concerns the
treatment of a Bed Cross nurse by a
Uarnian captain and the timely inter
ference of a war correspondent. Mr.
Bergen is a prominent figure pn the
legitimate stage, and his interpreta
tion of the role of the ambassador is
said to be nothing short of wonderful.
The remainder of tlie bill consists of
enough variety to satisfy the most
exacting vaudeville devotee, and in
cludes the Harrisburg favorites, Mack
and Earl, in a line of rapid-tire talk
and original songs; Johnny Clark and
Company, presenting comedy panto
mime and acrobatics; Wiki Bird, Ha
waiian entertainer on the steel guitar,
and Alex and Hot Lamb, in a novelty
"Cecelia of the Pink Roses" is
straight, undiluted melodrama, with
Marion Havies the star, and
At tlie calls into action all her
Colonial ability as she moves from
comedy into tragedy, and
back again, always registering
strongly, Friday and Saturday T..m
Moore will be seen in "Just For To
night." in a regaling story of a
young man who made good, proving
it is impossible to keep a good young
man down. The story is of a young
man who gets into all sorts of troubles
and it Is packed full of fun from
start to finish.
Elsie Ferguson, the best-known
star in fildom, is still the same attrac
tive, heart-appealing
Elsie actress of old, as she ap-
Ferguson pears in the pathetic
nt tlie story of the trials and
Itegent tribulations of two sis
ters, who, because of ad
verse circumstances their father.
Sir Robert Shale, being an habitual
dfunkard—are outcasts from society.
This story is entitled "The Lie," and
is appearing again to-day and to
morrow at the Regent Theater. The
crowds who attended this theater yes
terday spoke well of the expert act
ing of Miss Ferguson and the large
cast- that so ably supported her.
On Saturday the public will have the
opportunity of seeing, through the
films, the active part our ally, Italy,
is playing, or, rather, has played
the war is over, you know—in the
greatest war in the history of the
world. This picture is "Italy On the
Firing Line." The main feature for
Saturday is the "Widow's Might," star
ring Julian Eltinge. This double at
traction affords a splendid bill, and
one that is sure to draw considerable
Charlie Chaplin, in a film shown for
the first time in Harrisburg. "Triple
Trouble," is at the
Charlie Cliaplin Victoria Theater to
ut the Victoria day and will con
tinue to play to
morrow and Saturday.
This Chaplin film is declared by
critics to be one of the very best in
which Charlie has ever acted. It is
brimful of the richest kind of humor
ous situations and Charlie pulls off
a lot of extraordinary ludicrous
stunt's of his "own make," which add
immensely to his already towering
reputation as one of the foremost
funmakers of the screen.
