In reviewing the part the Brigade I played in halting the Germans' ad- ! vânee on Paris, the Sniper says: In addition to the French units ( facing the German army in the line | was the 26th Division, Americans, In front of the 146th F.

The German army was know.n to be preparing for their biggest attack of the war, the final drive that they i hoped would take them to Paris. The French high command, anticipating the direction of their movements, had fringed the saliant with 1 masses of troops, a part of the general plan of mobility that had characterized the French defense against the German Artillery continued to come into the saliant as a steady stream, and all roads leading to the front were massed with men, infant ry, machine gun units, supplies, artil lery, ammunition in a never ending flow. hammer blows.

IN MEMORIAN. « Since the last Memorial Day, there has been brought to a semi-termination at least, a terrible struggle be tween two diametrically opposed conceptions of govern ment. In the bringing about of this period for the eyolv ing for peace terms, over 30,000 Americans lost their lives . Today, 55 years after the termination of another flict which vitally effected our national life, we cannot but believe that the most recent war tempered into a finer de gree of firmness than ever before the bonds of love and understanding and respect that Americans have for others. We cannot but believe that the hatred and mis understanding which, in the, last 50 years were merged in to friendship, have been more firmly merged into a uni ty of thought and action unparalleled before in our re gards for national ideals. On this Memorial Day, then, is there not a greater significance to the cause for which our soldiers fought and died than there has been for half a century? And should we not in more earnest resolution than ever be fore, pledge ourselves to the unequivocal defense of the cause for which those glorified dead gave their live 3 ? \ con •| MERCANTILE COMPANY What would you do if you be came rich in one night?
