Major, who saw service in France and published one of th'' army (Overseas papers, on his return home cave the Standard the following inti mate sketch of life in France as he saw It: 'The folks at home see only fhc military side of the American roldiers' accomplishments in France, but one who studied the gradual drifting of the Yankee into the French home life, de tectS an effort on the future of the world far greater than that of our vic tories on the battlefields. W hile the daily bulletins were tell ing of the growing American strength on the front, the little black-haired I "wondering stare at this big, eurlons s(r;mcerof whom she had be.ird much but seen little When he awkwardly offi red her a package of chewing gum to be followed next day by a bar of Hershey'g she waa lost in the mental confusion of custom and reality. Why should he gi e her those dainties wheh she didn't know what it was to have plain sugar even in peace times? Ho couldn't talk to her and she couldn't talk to him. Nevertheless, side b side, they could be seen strolling every Sunday down the long shady lanes. "The 'pollua1 returning on a furlouch from the front, found his sweetheart and sister entertaining a different view of life than before he left. They expected and demanded certain cour tesies which French antiquated cus toms granted only to the men. "In short, the American soldier, big and free. had. bv his actions, revealed to the French girls that the gnat I ideal which has made American what j it is, Is reverence for womanhood. "The American treated the little French girl just as be had treated the American girls. She, instead of expect ing more and more conslderat ion, wa.i 'awed and delighted to think that some I where in the world she was actually appreciated. "The climax came when Americans learned to speak understandable French, and told what their actions i had indicated. I "I remember last St. Patrick's day in I Dax, a pretty little town 60 miles south of Bordeaux, two companies of i the 20th engineers were waiting for I their string of cars to take them to r?-rilon ii v tar m !! rlra i inn Thiv vi l i the first Americans to arrive in this I little town and to s-how them a place in flip hearts of the people, more than ! 1 000 girls, old women and children gath ered at the depot to say a laM fan -v ell to the who had been so odd and 'interesting but a few months previous. I 'I saw a corporal from Montana I leaning against a tree. Clinging to his arm vvas a little dark-eyed, fair-j skinned girl of 17, her eyes swollen 1 from weeping. There was no noise j except the audible sound of sobbing. All around were similar sight.- "1 was in this same village three j months later. All animation so preva-: lent when we were there was dead., The same silent solemnity which has I marked the town for several hundreds jof years had again assumed control. , Rut nearly every girl I met, whether I j knew her or not, ran to me with a let jter she had received from the one who I had made one year of her life mean so j ; much nore. "The almost unpardonable mistake ; some of the soldiers make is Circulat ing the story that all French girls are bad. Were the conditions reversed land French soldiers brought to Amcr lice we would be very indignant if the ' French judged all our girls by those on j the streets of New York There are more than one hundred and sixty thou sand girls on the streets of Raris alone. They are not there because wantonly bad. I have talked to many and in e ery case they have lost a father, broth i er or a husbaud and have no home or position'. "During the last four months in France I attended the University of Poitiers and lived in the home of a professor of science in that institution. Wlun the 250 American students had finished their schooling and on July 1 were preparing to leave, the profes Isor's 7-year-old girl made this remark ;at the dinner table: 'Well, mother, it is goodbye to good times now. No more i dances, no more parties, with ihe I Americana goes all the animation and pleasure.' A peculiar change in feeling among the men was here shown. At the depot 'scores of young French soldiers and D erslty BtUdentS crowded around I the Americans, as did the girls and I wished them Godspeed. They came to 'our dances, etc., and learned our idea of innocent enJornent They, too, wore converted and dreaded to see un go. This was one of twelve L-rg French universities Which opened its doors to American soldieiSstudents after the ar mistice. Day of Peace. "I was in Paris on June 28, the day peace was signed.

I was' in a barber shop, the ared proprietor of which had remained there during .the entire German occupation In an swer to an inquiry, How did the Oer mans treat you?' he replied. 'Fine. They were polite and con Iderate! I learned later most of his customers were German and he made a great deul of money from thdr patronage. J "Just across Ihe street I went in'o another barber shop and made thoj jsame inquiry The shop proprietor j flew into a furious outburst of slander ous characterizations of the Germans during their occupation.

"A strike at the pocket book seemed to decide the attitude of those in the occupied towns which were not de- , st roved. "In Coblens, Germany. I strolled past n group of little German children play I in tr something that resembled 'ring1 I around (he rosies.' I stopped to watch I Ithem and before I knew it three tiny girls were pulling on my arms to get; me to join in the circumnavigation of I their ring. I acquiesced and was bark j to childhood dnys nt the height of my j enjoyment when a big American mill tary policeman, with a luxurious grin on his face, touched me on the shoul der and said, 'Buddy, guess you'll have to cut tkat out, that's orders.'

As long as he paces there, 1 they will continue to shout the virtues of their republic. "But from my observations in all the bridgeheads, 1 fear he result wh. n foreign occupation ends 'If America aligns herself with France and England. Germany will ' turn towards building up industrially instead of militarily because she is afraid of America but not of France and England.

He talked pathetically of the condition to which the Allies had reduced his coun try and prophesied that if America would 'tend to her own business' and stay out of Europe thsro would never be peace His hatred fcr France and England was bitter, bui "ither his dis cretion, (my being an American) or his observation in battle, prevented his nasty views of America gaining ut terance. "With a party of 200 American news papermen, I traveled for six days over the battlefields where the Americans aisunguianea tnemsen . At ko magne, the largest Amctican cemetery, where some lO.dOU or 15.000 Ameri i cans are buried, 1 ran across the grave of a companion of mint who had I crossed the ocean on the same trans port and I remembered the then sim 1 pie incident when ho remarked as we I took our last look al ibe statue of Liberty, 'Wonder if I'ii ever see that again?' He never did. '1 was in Surenes cemetery Just out side of Paris on last Decoration day and heard President Wilson deliver the i memorial address. Before him a civil war veteran of 74 years, came to a trembling oalute as the president mounted the stand. Mr. Wilson was visibly moved and returned Ihe salute "At the close of his address, a I French mother, with tears streaming down her face, handed him a wreath! of flowers and asked bin. in 'the name, of the omthers of two million French boys who died on the battlefield' to j place it on the grave ru some "simple I Isoldat Americane' whoee aid saved their boys from dying in vaiu. "Another impressive incident of this! historical occasion was when Marshal Foch, also affected by this mother's i words, gripped President WHson's, hand and .-aid. "'Mr. President, perm. I me also to pay my humble tribute to the great' soldiers of our count rv. without whose' hard fighting and sacrifice we could, , never have won.' "Several thousand American soldiers were standing with bared head.s and j those nearest the President and Mar Ishal Foch though their faces were tanned and hardened, could not keep back the tears when Ihey saw their 'buddies' who could never go back , home with them and receive the wel- come of a grateful nation to her victor , lous soldiers. "The peasants and common people of France worship President Wilson i In him they see the iirst man since j ! , !

I even heard a girl, who was educated in London, say on a tra u coming from Paris, that she would '.-pit on Wilson if I should meet him .n the Street.1 Her lather is a multl millionaire who has been little affect"! by the war. "The week following Wilson's ond arrival in France, the Socialists planned ;i huge parade in Ivs honor It was stopped by troops dispatched at the order of Premier Clemenceau. The French censor squelched all news of the incident, by order of Clemenceau. "It took the IOuropeaut. two years to understand partly the nature ol the American soldier, and they have not yet come to understand our president. " 'A champion of the .writing man is a beautiful phrase," remarked a French newspaperman .o me, 'hut our statesmen laugh nt such a thing as any ruler being fool enough to Jeo pardize his own Interests and really try to be one. Wilson must learn that the milennium isn't' here, and money still talks.' 'That Is Ihe view of the big Inter ests which have sucked the life blood of the people for generations, but the latter a:e beginning to .;ee the light of a better day and they see it through the great window of Wood row Wilson." oo Why be Fat?
