Vermont officially welcomed in Ilrattleboro this morning, through its American
Legion men and through its distinguished governor, the commander of the allied
armies in the Woild war Marshal Ferdinand Foch of France, the most noted
man who ever visited Ilrattleboro. Over Ti,0H) persons participated in the welcome,
w hich was directly in charge of Commander Ernest W. Gibson of I'.rattleboro post.
The far amed Frenchman was a guest for lit) minutes of I'.rattleboro post, and the
record of his visit will form the most notable page in the minutes of that organization.
To see and he ir the supreme commander of the greatest armies in, history was a
j rare privilege, ami those who were so fortunate as to be accorded that opportunity

Unmindful of all others, the gaze of each one in the vast crowd was fixed upon
the great military leader as he appeared through the doorway at the railroad sta

dressed in the regulation French military uniform suited to a man of his rank, with
long blue overcoat. Although IV years of age he appeared much younger, and
while he is small in stature the square set jaw and determined expression of Lis
countenance told plainly why he was chosen as the generalissimo of the armies
which accomplished the defeat of Germany and her allies.
Besides Marshal Foch and the others mentioned there were on the platform
some prominent officials f the Vermont department and some members of the Foch
party which Las been on a 2.".(KM)-mile tour of the I'nited States, including Franklin
