Lieut Green, an artillery officer, was, wounaea Dy sneii lire early in March. Sergt. Norton, a veteran in service, formerly resided in Arkansas. He was decorated by Premier Clemenceau for his act in killing a German lieutenant and tWo German soldiers. Ho was challenged by the lieutenant to leave his dugout and led out his men flght- lngj Sergt. Walsh, formerly of Chi cago, also is a regular army veteran. His French decoration was received for heroism in the Toul sector. He took command ot a detachment in front of the American entanglements when his captain was killed and con tinued the fight. Sergt. Walsh was selected by Gen. Perrthrng to act as orderly to Secretary Baker during his present visit to the American army in France. The crosses were swarded for "ex traordinary heroism In connection with military operations against an armed enemy." Lieut. Green probably will stand on the records as the first to receive the honor, tor his name is first on the list of three approved by the commander-in-chief. The exploits of these men are described by the general command ing their division as follows": Heroio Feat Described. "I recommend that the distinguished service cross be awarded to the officer and men named hereafter who dis tinguished themselves by acts ot extra ordinary heroism. Lieut. Green, while in a dugout. having been wounded by an enemy hand grenade, was summoned to sur render. He refused to do so. Return ing the Are of the enemy, he wounded one and pursued the hostile party. Sergt Norton, finding . himself in a dugout surrounded by the enemy. Into which a grenade had Just been thrown, refused to surrender and made a bold dnsh outside, killing one of Ms assailants. By so doing he saved the company's log book. Sergt. alsh followed Ms com pany to the first line in spite of a se vere barrage. The captain being killed, he assumed command of the group and attacked a superior force of the enemy, inflicting severe loss upon thrm. Though of advanced age, he refused to leave the front." Pershing Gives Approval. To those recoinondntlons Gon. Persh ing appended the' following: The commanrler-tn-chlef approves the recomcndatlon for awards of dis tinguished service ci'OHBes. They are not on hand at present, but will tie for warded when received and will bp. pre sented to you in the name of the com mander-in-chief with suitable ceremony." !

FEARS COMPLICATION IF JAPAN INTERVENES J. Hamilton Lewis Says Citizen ship Demand Might Em barrass Allies. (New York Times.) United States Senator James Ham ilton Iewis, of Illinois, npenklag nt the 184th annual dinner of the St. Patrick's Society of New York, in the grand ballroom of the Hotel Astor, last night in a reference to the situa tion In the far east, which may lead to Japanese intervention in Siberia, declared that in the event this coun try adopted closer relations with Ja pan and as a rnsmlt benefited from any service Japan might render In the Asiatic world, , the United States would be plnced under obligation which would compel the government at Washington to listen "to any griev ance flint these friendly Asiatic people may have ngnlnst any policy of ours," and In the, event Japan demands of Kngland, her ally, and Kvnnco support of a demand that America grant cltl senshlp privileges to Asiatics, those countries, to say the least, will find themselves in a. very embarrassing position. A failure on the part of Great Britain or France tn Join Japan In such a request, he ndded, would threaten the friendly relations exlst tntr between Japan and the French and British. NOTED IN DECLARATION i " Inter-Allied Conference Draws Distinction Between Bolshe vik! and Russian People. Paris, Monday, March 18. In official circlee here it was pointed out today that the declaration Issued In connee lion witn last ween s interallied con ference in London concerne merely European terirtonal questions and hence it waa logical that the United States and Japan, although fully in formed and in entire sympathy with the statements made, should not have taken formal .part in the issuance of the declaration. A competent author ity said to the Associatsd Prent 'The declaration fully expresses the democratic principles formulated In President Wilson's message, notably as regards the right of people to dispose of themselves. It marks the will of the allies that peace shull not be founded on any basis other than re spect for the right. It deals out Jus tice to the hypocritical procedure of Germany, which makes a pretense of conforming to( American Ideals. Draw Line of Distinction. "The declaration Is unmtatnkeahly vigorous as regards the Hrest-Lltovslt peace agreement, condemning it as null and void and refusing recognition of any similar treaties which may follow, as. for Instance, with Kumanlo. It emphasizes the point that, the central powers are determined to dismember Polntvl whlln the allies give Poland the assurance that their victory means her liberation, the restoration of her inde pendence. "The declaration denounces 'clearly and caiegorlcally the bolshevik blunder in putting faith in Germany's words concerning peace without anexntlons or indemnities. It shows that, the al lies regard the Busslsn people as friends, drawing a distinction between the people and the bolshevik! and thnt they firmly intend to save ltussla in spite of herself."

Now, as It is known thnt Itunuinla has been forced Into peace with the central powers nnd that half a million of her soldiers are about to be demobilised, It Is well to consider tho position of Greece, Serbia and Montenegro. Though the Hulkan situation Is of Secondary Interest at this stage of the war, there In reason to expect renewed military activity In this theater In the spring. With the exception of a small area around Monnsllr, the enemy has occu pied all of Montenegro and Serbia since Mackensen'a thrust in the full of 1915. Of the four central powers Tur key alone bus been Invaded by allied forces.
