BY PARIS CROWDS Cheering Mob Surrounds Ameri can Commander in Chief, CAR IS HALTED IN STREET Leader of Yank* Showered With Flags and Flowers a* He Ac** knowledges Unexpected T rlbute. Paris.—During an Impromptu trip through tin* Place dt* la iVucortle Oeu, John J. Pershing received plaudits that perhaps never before have been equaled In the history of the oit.v. It was also perhaps oue of the most dan gerous half hours he ever experienced, as fully fifty thousand wildly cheering Parisians circled about bis car and fully half a million comprised the great mob that crammed the Place de la Concorde and was still flowing in from all the boulevards. The general was out for a short drive and had come up the Rue Rivoll. His car was proceeding at a snail’s pace before it was recognized by the frenzied -street crowds. As General Pershing’s face, with the famous smile, showed through the tloor, a French girl with the flags of hulf a dozen nations twined about her head screamed, “General Pershing!” The cry was taken up instantly and passed over the seething multitudes. If there were any gendarmes about they were swallowed up In the enormous mob. In an instant men and women went mad and screamed his name, and ail tried to reach the car. Men picked up women and held them or their shoulders that they might get a look at the general. The mob surged toward the car in another wave. Shakes Hands of Children. General Pershing amidst the danger was enjoying it greatly. Instead of dos ing the window and urging the driver to get out before they were crushed to death, he. let the window down full length, laughed heartily, and thrust his hand out of the door to shake the hand of a little French child whose proud father lifted her above the heads of the mob. Children climbed on the tonneau and shinned up the hack of the limousine and frantically leaped over the strug- 1 u: . J. . cr-h.ng. gling muss and shot their hands in at the window, General Pershing con tinued laughing and tried to shake as many hands us could he thrust through the window. “Pershing! Pershing!” bellowed the mob, and the name rang from the Seine to the Hue Itoyale, up the Champs Elysees, and through the Tuileries gardens. Efforts to Clear Way Fail. French officers who had been caught up In the human maelstrom saluted and then endeavored to have the mob give way. As if by common impulse the masses seemed to understand that the great American general was in danger, and with a craning of heads and the screams of women and chil dren a slight rift was made directly ahead of the car. Then by less than a snail’s pace the car with (rantic snorts edged along, inch by inch. The cheering was indescribable. Along the boulevards the name of Per shing was taken up by thousands who probably did not know that Pershing was in their midst, and at one moment it seemed that all Paris v as shouting. By this time the inside of Pershing’s car resembled a tlag shop. The chil dren who were raised over the heads of the frantic populace tossed small tlags and flowers through the window and the grownups tore the insignia from their coats and tossed it in. Gen eral Pershing was laughing hard and waving his hand back at the children, hut still the flag and floral offerings poured in until he was half buried be neath the hunting, flags, buttons, In signia. and crushed blossoms. Moves Inch by Inch. Inch by inch the car moved and then halted several minutes as the mob surged back against it. It was the ear he had used over the battlefield of France and was built for rough usage, else it seems it must have crushed like an egg shell. Fiually the car edged out of the Place de la Concorde into the Champs Elysees, but still the mob, with hats off, arms in air. and months wide open, shouting like inad. surged about him. It was several minutes more before the Aleppo an Ancient City. Ir the center of the older section of Aleppo stands the ancient citadel, a deep moat encircling it. The great mosque is on the site of the tomb of Zacharias, the father of John the Bap tist. If alleged Egyptian monuments ••an he accepted as an authority, thg first settlement dates back close to years B. C. The city at one time had a trade connection with Venice, as well as with Bagdad, and its name and importance became famed through out Christendom. Toad's Good Service. The toad is useful because of Its diet. No less than S3 specimens of Insects, mostly injurious, have been proved to enter into its dietary. George W. llunter says: A toad has beeu ob served to snap up 128 fl'es in half an hour. Thus at a low estimate It could easily destroy 1,000 Bisects during a day and do an immense service to the garden during the summer. It has been estimated that a single toad may, on account of the cutworms which it kills, be worth $19.88 each season mat it lives. car could he extrieateu and a sem hlauee of a road made. Kven then, us the car got away up the great avenue toward the Arc de Triumph, thousands ran after It. All Paris seemed to he rumbling with a mlfchty noise and over the mighty noise sounded, clear and strong, “Vivo tYrahlng !’* Troop* in England First Home. London The first American troops lo depart homeward as a result of the ■uguluji of the armistice will be 18,000 uu-n Stationed In England.

The American hospital units will be left In England until a policy for car ing for future cases of Illness among the Americans hus been decided upon. The belief is expressed at army headquarters that very few Americans will be left long in England, as it is thought that the hospitals In France can care for future needs. German Navy Surrendered. London.—There has just been seen the greatest naval surrender which the world has ever witnessed. A great fleet of German battleships, battle cruisers, and light cruisers and destroyers left port for an unknown destination. They were met by the British fleet, accompanied by Ameri can and French representatives, and conducted to their destination. A Berlin telegram received In Am sterdam gives this list of the vessels comprising the best of the German navy that were to be handed over: Battleships—Kaiser, Ixaiserin, Ko nig Albrecht, Kronprinz Wilhelm, Prlnz Regent Luitpold, Markgraf. Grosser Kurfurst. Bayern, Konlg Friedrich der Grosse. Battle cruisers—Hindenburg, Derf flinger, Seidlltz, Moltke, Von der Tann. Light cruisers—Bremen, Brummer, Frankfurt. Kolin. Dresden, Emden. Germany has been stripped of at least half of the fleet of dreadnaughts which it had in commission or building when war began, and of practically all of its battle cruisers. Yanks in Triumphal March. With ihe American Army of Occupa tion. —The American army of occupa tion, which is moving forward steadily over the territory evacuated by the retiring Germans, is being received -with wild demonstrations of joy by the residents of the towns which are now being liberated after more than four years of German rule. When the American troops entered Briey, the heart of the Lothriugian iron fields, they passed under trium phal arches that had been hurriedly erected by the people of the town, and the streets through which they passed were bedecked with flags. On one arch through which the Americans passed was a homemade American flag four feet in length, flanked by the French colors. The flag, which had been made by three French girls, had eleven stars and seven red and white stripes. At St. Leger, as the advance units of the Americans entered the town, the church bells were rung and the mayor and his wife stood in front of their home to welcome the officers and correspondents, who were invited to become the mayor’s guests. Wom en, children and aged men crowded about the soldiers, embracing them and presenting them with flowers. Similar scenes were enacted as the Americans reached Virton, Longwy, Audun, La Remain and other towns evacuated by the Germans. Everything moves smoothly as the American forces proceed toward the Rhine. Some 200.000 men. with their supplies, guns and ammunition, must he moved along three main roads from railheads that get farther behind eaeh day. The job is one that would tax the abilities of the quartermasters of any army. Flags Flutter Over British. With the British Armies. —Innumer- able flags fluttered over the beads of Hie British troops as they moved for ward and started on their march to the Rhine. The cavalrymen had their own guidons and some of them rode with French and Belgian flags sticking, out of their hoots and fastened to their bridles. The gunners had flags on their limbers and the axles of their wagons: their steel traces were pol ished brightly, as though for a mili tary tournament, and their steel hel mets were shining. They had spent many hours in “spit and polish” since the day of the armistice, so they should look well on the road to the Rhine. The advancing troops met thousands of civilians who were coming home after years of exile. As the soldiers went forward the homecoming civil ians halted to wave flags at them, astounded, it seemed, by the smart ness of the men who, after four years of war, rode out, spick and span from helmet to spur, on tine horses, well fed and groomed. In sharp contrast to the sorry-looklng German horse flesh. Goodness Astonished Herself. Abigail had been frequently re minded during the clays preceding Christmas that Santa Claus never re membered little girls who were naughty She went to bed on Christ mas eve conscious of her frequent lapses from virtue. The next morning she was amazed at the array of gifts which met her gaze. “Oh!” she sighed blissfully, as she clasped a doll in one arm and a Teddy bear in the other, “I didn’t know I was so good!” Beauties of Constantinople. The city of Constantinople is full of beautiful and Interesting flings. but in the way of buildings, after Santa Sophia the mosque of Yeni Valideh Sultan, the wife of Ahmed I, is the most wonderful. The pfFect of these tile-lined walls, as seen from Galata bridge, with their elaborate interlac ing patterns and borders, is extremely striking and there seems to be nothing quite comparable to it. The tiles in this old mosque are considered to be among the finest in all Constantirople. Getting Rid of It. Mary Elizabeth had been sitting by her mother for a full hour trying with all her might to make a dress for her dollie.

WAUSAU PILOT PRES. VAN HISE CALLED BY DEATH UNIVERSITY HEAD PASSES AWAY IN MILWAUKEE HOSPITAL AFTER OPERATION. WAS NATIVE OF WISCONSIN Born at Fulton, Rock County, Sixty. Years Ago—Known Throughout the Nation as Great Educator and Publicist—Held Many Degrees. Milwaukee Dr. Charles R. Van Hise, president of the University of Wisconsin and one of the leading ed cators of the country, died at Mt. Sinai hospital here. Dr. Van Hise’s death followed an operation he underwent for a nasal infection which had troubled him for a long time. Death was caused by pneumococcis meningitis. The influence of Dr. Van Hise in ed ucational life was felt not only in Wisconsin, but throughout the coun try. He was born in Fulton, Wis., May 29, 1857, and after completing his common school education entered the University of Wisconsin and was graduated in 1879. He had been a member of its faculty since. In 1886, Dr. Van Hise was made protessor of mineralogy, and four years later became professor of geol ogy. The degree of doctor of philos ophy was bestowed upon him by the university in 1892. During his thirteen years as head of the geological de partment, his reputation as a geologist became world-wide. He was noted as an authority on many scientifi ques tions, and was frequently called upon to make difficult surveys for this and other governments. In 1903, he was made president of the university. Under Dr. Van Hise’s progressive leadership, the University of Wiscon sin earned the reputation of being the most thorough institution of its kind, in many respects, in the country. His presence was always felt in the legis lature, where he fought for every measure aimed to develop and broaden the facilities of the university. It was largely due to his earnest effort that large sums of money were from time to time appropriated to the institution. During the present world war, Dr. Van Hise’s influence as a leader made itself felt. He was called upon by President Wilson to serve in an ad visory capacity on many vital matters, to which tasks he unreservedly devo ted his whole energy. With the out break of the war the entire facilities of the university was turned over to the government. His ability in con verting the institution into a war winning unit was so marvelous that the University of Wisconsin came to be referred to as “the West Point of the middle west.” During the national campaign for conservation, President Wilson called upon Dr. Van Hise for assistance. The head of the University of Wisconsin toured from state to state. It was he who drove home to the people the idea that they constituted “the second line of defense.” Dr. Van Hise was further honored last spring when he was named one of a party of American journalists and educators to visit England, France and the battlef rants. He returned trom Europe less than a month ago. While abroad he was honored by both the British and French governments and acted as spokesman for the party on a number of officious occasions. The solution of reconstruction prob lems occupied much of Dr. Van Hise’s time. He was one of the leading fig ures in the formation of and further ance of the ideas of ti e League to Enforce Peace. Upon h.s invitation the league held a convention recently in Madison. There he outlined before the convention, which was attended by former President Taft and other notables, the principles promulgated by the league to end warfare. Aside from his many degrees from the University of Wisconsin, Dr. Van was awarded degrees by the Universi ties of Chicago, Yale, Harvard, Willi ams and Dartmouth. He was presi dent of the board of commissioners of the Wisconsin Geological and Natural History survey, chairman of the state board of forestry and chair man of the state conservation com mission. He was a trustee of the Car negie Foundation for Advancement of Teaching and a member of the Na tional Academy of Sciences, Scientific Society of Christiania, Royal Swedish Academy of Science and other scien tific and educational organizations. He served as president of the Wiscon sin Teachers’ association. On Dec. 22, 1881, Dr. Van Hise was married to Miss Alice Bushnell Ring of Evansville, Wis. Dean E. A. Brige, who has always served as acting head of the univer sity, in the absence of the president, will have temporary charge of the in stitution. Dr. Van Hise was a Republican in politics. He was often held to be, be cause of his constant contact with legislative matters, too ambitious, but the tribute paid him by Gov. Philipp who had occasion to be in close touch with him, disproves that belief. Where Courage Is Valuable. It takes courage to do that which is unpopular, but which one feels is right. Courage is a great asset in citizenship because it impels us to do right for right’s sake and not because it pleases someone else. Bees’ Wings. A bee’s wing moves so fast that hitherto no moving picture could catch It, but it has at last been photo graphed by an electric spark lasting a hundredth of a second, during which time twenty sharp negatives were made.

WIFE TO HIM White House Announcement Says Mrs. Wilson and Official Delegates Will Go With President, Who Is tc Insist on League of Nations. Washington, Nov. 20.—President M ilson will head this country’s dele gation to the peace conference. He ex pects to sail for France within a day or two after December 2, the opening of the regular session of congress. This was officially announced at the Mhite House. The statemeut Is as follows: “The president expects to sail for f ranee immediately after the opening of the regular session of congress for the purpose of taking part in the dis cussion and settlement of the main features of the treaty of peace. “It is not likely that it will be pos sible for him to remain throughout the sessions of the formal peace confer ence, but his presence nt the outset is necessary in order to obviato the mani fest disadvantages of discussion by cable in determining the general out lines of the final treaty, on which he must necessarily be consulted. “He will, of course, be accompanied by delegates who will sit as the repre sentatives of the United States throughout the conference. The names of the delegates will be presently an nounced.” Mrs. Wilson will accompany the president, It was learned, and the en tire delegation—peace envoys, secre taries, stenographers and the like — will probably sail on one of the Ameri can battleships, possibly the Pennsyl vania. The president’s announcement set tles two questions. The first of these is the fact that the peace conference will be an early one, beginning in De cember; the second Is that it will b< held at Versailles. The president will appear before congress, presumably on the day its regular session opens, to explain more minutely the reasons why, at this time, It is imperative for him to go abroad. His reasons, it was said, will go far toward mollifying the feeling in cer tain quarters of the senate and the house that it is unwise for him to leave the country. There are two outstanding reasons why the president’s attendance Is nec essary at the peace conference. He wants to preserve the unity of counsel that brought victory to the allies and America on the battlefield, and which characterized the sessions of the su preme war council at Versailles, and he also wants to make secure the foun dations of a League of Nations. The latter is his plan for world and lasting peace and he is so strongly* convinced of irs efficacy that he is go ing to Europe to put It into concrete form. By common consent and approbation of all the allies the president will as sume the leading role at the moment ous conference. The position of the United States jfn the great war, coupled with his position as this nation’s spokesman, will make him the chief figure and one whose word will com mand the respectful audience of all civilization. He will be able to see the peace con ference started with the “right foot for ward” and officials and diplomats here believe that will be half the battle for the eventual amicable settlement ofi the grave questions it will have before it.
