General Pershing-, the American commander in chief, has approved the awarding of the first new American military crosses for extraordinary heroism. The recipients are Lieut. John O. Green, Sergeant "William Norton and Sergeant Patrick Walsh. Lieut. Green anB Sergeants Norton and Walsh all ha,vo received the French war cross, Norton and Walsh being decorated personally by Premier Clemenceau on March 3. ' Lieut. Green, an artillery officer, was wounded fby shell fire early in March. Sergeant Norton, a veteran in service, formerly resided in Arkan sas . He was decorated toy Premier Clemenceau for his act in killing a German lieutenant and two German soldiers. He was challenged by the lieutenant to leave his Idoigout and led out his men fighting. . Sergeant Walsh, formerly of Chi cago, also is a regular army veteran. His French decoration was received for heroism on the Toul secaor. He took command of a detachment in front of the American wire entangle ments when his captain was killed, and continued the fight. Sergeant Walsh was selected toy Gen. Pershing to act as ordo-ly to Secretary of War Baker during liis present visit Do the American army in France. The crosses were awarded for "ex traordinary heroism in connection with military operations against an armed enemy." Lieut. Green probably will stand on the records as the first to receive the li ":i or, for his name is first on the li L of three approved by the commander-in-chief. The exploits of thp"!e men are described by the gan tral commanding their divisions fol lows: "I recommend that the distinguish ed service cross be awarded to the of ficer and men named hereafter, who distinguished themselves by acts of extraordinary heroism. "Lieut. Green while in a dugout, having been wounded by an enemy hand grenade, was summoned to sur render. He refused to do so Re turning the fire of the enemy, he wounded one and pursued the hostile party. "Sergeant Norton, finding himself in a dugout surrounded by the enemy, into which a grenade had just been thrown, refused to surrender and made a bold dash outside, killing one of his assailants. By so doing h3 saved the company's log book. "Sergeant Walsh followed his com pany commander to the first lines in spite of a severe barrage. The cap tain being1 killed, he assumed com mand of the group and attacked a su perior force of the enemy, inflicting severe loss on them. Though of ad vanced age he refused to leave the front." ' To these recommendations Gen. Pershing appended the following: "The commander in chief approves the recommendation for awards of distinguished service crosses. They are not on hand at present, but will be forwarded when received and will be presented by you in the name of the commander in chief, with suitable ceremony." ALLEGES PURE . FOOD GO.
