i Legion flag which was proscnte.1 to

' After checking the shouts and ,
' cheers of the crowd to some ejcvent, ,
!; Mayor Francis introduced General,
? Pershing to the school children and,
j others who were present as one of the j
! greatest Americans of the day. When
;! hc cheering that greeted his rrmarks
had subsided, the general made a l
j short talk directly to the school chil-'
"You cannot imagine how you, the!
j boys and girls of Dtah and the United
States, served as an-Inspiration to'
i those who were with the American ex

I who gave them the fortitude and cour-
f age and gallantly which was displayed ;
by thorn overseas. !

Upon returning from Lester Park
along Twenty-fourth street, Genera!
I Pershing stopped his car, dismounted,

their youthful chests.
A little farther along the lino were
the high school cadets. Although not
in uniform, the cadets presented a mil

formation and standing at attention
while the automobile in which the gen

of the cars in the parade.
