(lly Lyrm Wilson, Editor of The TImes)
Verdun, France, July 19---The Arneric-art government has-i
adopted the policy of concentrating its graves as much as pos---i
sible. There are 800 military cemeteries in which Arnericani
soldiers sleep. These burial places are scattered over the fact
of Europe, but the work of concentration is g-,oing on, and Vvith--1
in a comparatively brief period this number will be reduced to-1
feur permanent cemeteries. which will ever be supported ancLI
maintained as places of beauty, sacred to the memory of the
valiant dead.
, The work of assembling all these scattered graves is oar,11

During the visit of the Rotaria,ns to France there was a '

resting place pf some heroic boy.,
The perfect order system which marks the conduct of the
American. Graves Registration Service is apparent upon a very
slight inspection of the methods it employs. My especial rea
son for seeking the aid of Captain Kangley, was that I might
locate the grave of Captain. Jeremiah E. Murphy, who -was my
friend, who upon a time had been cormected -with The Bridge

Originally his remains had been -buried, on the southern.
edge of the Bois-de-Fays in Argonne, about one mile north of ,

on the vrar swept soil of this land. Some are in Russia, some in
