Washington, Aug. 5 (By Mail) Of all the permanent memorials of the World War that Americans have left in France none gives more prom ise of growing in importance tVram the new Florence Nightingale - Training School for Nurses established at Bag atelle, in the scenic Bordeaux sub urb of Talence. It is dedicated to the memory of the 284 American nurses who gave their lives in the war and was given by the nurses of America, through small individual subscrip tions. . " . N The school was founded by Dr. Anna Hamilton, who on June 5 last, when the cornerstone was laid, sat and modestly acknowledged the show, quietly in the shade of a great eln er of felicitations from Americans French men and women of, promi nence on the fruits of her twenty years' struggle to raise the standard of nursing in France. Seldom has there been witnessed in France a Franco-American ceremony more touching. The scene was set in the park of BagateJI an estate given to the nurses by Mademoiselle Eliz abeth Bose, of Bordeaux. Under a. great fifty-yearold tree and flanking the cronerstone was a stand, draped In American and French flags erect ed by Major Frederick W. Patterson, of Baltimore, head' of the Graves Registration Services in the Bordeaux area. Rear Admiral Thomas P. Magruder, American Naval Attache in France, who came from Paris, and the blue jackets of the U. S. Destroyer Chllds, ordered from Cherbourg especially for the occasion, represented the American Navy. A handful of the sailors remained aboard their boat to "show it off" to thousands of eager French people who filed on board. At Bagyatells Admiral Magruder was in charge of the dedicatory ceremo nies. Speaking in such good French that it proved a very pleasant surprise to the French people, he thanked the French nurses for their ministra tions to the American sailors -who were in the nearby hospital during i the war. Illinois Girl Ijvys Stone. Sailors were lined up on one side of the stand and uniformed nurses on the other. They took part in the singing of "The Marseillaise" and "The Star Spangled Banner," played by the Band of the One Hundred and Forty-fourth French Infantry . Regi ment, The gathering, which Included more than one hundred Americans, who came from Paris and other dis tant parts of France, listened to speeches by Colonel Robert B. Olds, of Minneapolis; Dr. Kendall Emer son, of Worcester, Mass., and many other Americans and Frenchmen Miss Helen Scott Hay of Savannah, 111., laid the cornerstone. The Mayor of Talence was preseni, with members of the County Council, many of whom delivered speeches praising the American people for their continued interest in the wellbeing of France in her post-war struggle. - At a dinner in the evening, served by the uniformed nurses in a garden of the estate, bronze com memorative medals were presented to all the Americans toy the French nurses. " Among the Americans present were the American Consul, Theodore Jaeckel and Mrs. Jaeckel, of Phila delphia, Major H. B. Wadsworth, U. S A. and Mrs. Wadsworth, of Idaho; Mr. and Mrs. D. B.

Page Thirteen CHICAGO POLICE MAY CARRY WIRELESS RECEIVING STATIONS ON COAT LAPELS JAPAN WELCOMES NAMING OF CHARLES B. WARREN AS AMERICAN ENVOY TO TOKIO " Nippon Press Professes Ignorance Concerning New Ambassador, But Is Generous In Its Editorial Comment and Hope. Toklo, Aug. S The appointment of Charles Beecher Warren as Ambassa dor to Japan has been received with reserved pleasure here thus far. While both the American community and the Japanese official circles are glad that the question of who will be the American envoy to Toklo has at last been settled It Is impossible for most of the leaders in both divisions Df those interested to comment very profusely on the new appointee. To a wide circle of friends in Toklo the last Ambassador, Mr. Morris, was a most satisfactory representative of the United States. He was active in every line, of Americanism here; he was a staunch supporter of tile Amer ican School, was active in the Ameri can Association and was in other ways identified with the interests of all Americans in the Far East. Thus such members -of the American community as Mr. JRobert F. Moss, president of the American Association, and other officers pf this organization are hop ing that Mr. Warren will prove as in terested in such affairs as was Mr. Morris. "Advance reports on the new Ambassador to Japan," said Mr. Moss the day after the news "had been re ceivd, "indicate that Tokio may ex pect a first-rate Ambassador at the Embassy soon. Most of the Americans I have talked to have expressed them selves as well pleased with the appointment." Viscount Kentaro Kaneko, presi dent of the America-Japan Society, a member of the Privy Council, is par ticularly pleased -with the appoint ment. The reports reaching Tokio for a few weeks previous to the appoint ment indicated that President Hard ing might possibly select a man who was diflnitely against Japan, and it was therefore a relief when Warren's name reached the ears of some of the leading Japanese. "Viscount Kaneko was in charge of Japan's interests at the time of the Behring Sea Fisheries Dispute, and for that reason he was able to learn something of Ambassa dor Warren, who at that time was a member of- the Joint High Commis sion. Press Never Heard of Him. "As Vice-Minister of 'Agriculture at that time I was connected also with the Behring Sea Fisheries settlement, and the fairness with which this case was handled was pleasing to Japan," said Viscount Kaneko, when seen by a representative of the International News Service. "My impressiofr is that Mr. Warren accomplished much as a member of the Joint High Commis sion at that time. I believe Japan generally will regard him as the right sort of a man for the place." The Chugai Shogyo, a commercial paper, is the only one thus far to comment on the new Ambassador. FRANKEL'S . NEW STORE 1189 MAIN ST. OPENS TOMORROW BEDS, CRIBS, DAY-BEDS, and COUCHES IN THIS SALE. (By International News Service.) Chicago, Aug. 5 The coat lapel of every Chicago policeman soon may harbor an individual wireless receiv ing station that will permit him to receive, anywhere on his. beat, urgent alarms from headquarters, if - the plans t William G. Kieth, City Com missioner of Gas and Electricity, work out. . . Mr. Kieth has just completed the installation on the top of the city hall, for use by the police and Are departments,- of . a big wireless station, which he hopes to develop to the point of putting a receiving apparatus upon the coat lapel of every police man in the city. - An officer may be strolling placidly along his beat, perhaps assisting a pretty maid in the locomotion of a baby buggy, when a buzzing at his lapel will cause iim to drop the han dle of the buggy or the hand -of the This is doubtless due to the fact that the editors of most of the newspapers have never heard of Mr. Warren and that they Are right now awaiting ad vices from America rgarding the new appointee. The Chugai says: "The delay in the selection of an Ambassador to Japan is enough to point to the fact that the American Government has taken considerable pains regarding it. In view of the fact that many important questions are pending between Japan and America, Japan has naturally watched with great interest for the name of the new appointee. Mr. Charles Beecher War ren, the new appointee, is a first-class man among the Republicans, and, though with little diplomatic ex perience, he is known to have suf ficient knowledge of diplomatic af fairs. "We do not, of course, know as yet what opinions he entertains regarding Japanese-American problems, but we believe that he is neither bigoted nor biased, but that he is open-minded and that his appointment - will make a great contribution to the friendship of J maid and cock an attentive ear to the aforesaid lapel. - "Officer 13.. Officer 13.. Officer 13," the "lapel" station will say. ."Rob bery "reported at No. 2323 Blank street" . - - - And off he will speed, leaving a dis pleased maid and surprising, perhaps, an equally displeased burglar. It is said the ether waves seeking this "lapel" station will invade the walls of kitchens, . where officers of the law are said to receive epicurian delicacies' from friendly cooks. The city's wireless station provided a novel feature of Chicage's Pageant of progress. Tuneful melodies from the orchestras playing the music for the best musical shows in town were picked up . and swirled over the city by wireless to the municipal , pier, where the exposition was - beld. There it was amplified by sounders. REPORTER GETS JOB .

CAT NURSES MOTHERLESS : PUPPIES AS HER Detroit, Mich.. Aug. 5 Who was asking where he could find the old fashioned mother who stayed at honte and raised a large family? Matilda, Is such a mother. - Until a month ago Matilda " was just "an ordinary pussy cat. Now she is taking care of three small Pome ranian puppies, worth $150. She .loves them as much as her own kit tens, who were drowned a -few days ago. , Figi, a pedigreed Pomeranian own ed by John Klein, of this city, died when her three pppies were a week old. Matilda, also a mother of three, lost her kittens about the same time. Mrs. Klein tried rfeeding the pup pies with a medicine dropper, but Anally was forced to brirrg in Ma tilda ". There was a puzzled expression on Matilda's face when the small pup pies first started to cackle, but she made no objection. She was still more puzzled when she looked around and saw a. short tail where her kittens had waved a I much longer one. There was some- I thing wrong, but Tillie didn't know j just what it was. So she immediately 1 -started giving all three a bath. . -iBetty, King Dodo and Figi, th three purppies, were somewhat puz zled, too. This wasn't mot lifer. It was an improvement over mother. Matilda doesn't run away at meal times like their real mother did when the Klein family car started up. Their new mother doesn't want to go mo toring and permits them to go through dinner without interruption. One thing even peaceful Matilda will not countenance. That is inter ference from Bubbles, father of the puppies So Bubbles, mindful of domestic peace, watches from afar while an alien paw and mouth cars for hia three children.
