Coming of Ferdinand Foch B
and Contrasts in Tours T
of Two Great French I
TPhe state.
Greenwood, Dec. 9.-In March, 185,
the Marquis de Lafayette, while on a
triumphant tour of the land which he
had helped to make free, entered
kbuth Vardlina, near old Cheraw and"
prceeding by coach made his way to I
the sea. At every stop he was ac
dlalmed by a grateful people and to
this (lay the residents of Camden, Co- I
lum-bia and Oliailleston speak of cele
brations held In his honor, and other
places point with pride to the fact I
'that the distinguished Frenchman in- i
cluded them in h1is itinerary. The I
houses in which he was quartered,
the chairs in which he sat, corner- I
stones which ho laid, are still treas- I
-u red. t
Today, nearly 97 years afterwards, 0
South Carolina was honored by the
presence of another great Frenchman,
another man who helped set its peo
Pie free. And from the time Ferdi
nand Foch, commander in chief of the I
allied foices, first saw the light of a A1
Carolina sun near Calhoun Falls this I
afternoon until lie left the Palmetto I
State in the historic Waxhaws to
:night he was acclaimed with the same 1
warmth of feeling as was expressed a
to his illustrious -predecessor. -t
Only Short Time <
Sou'th Carolina did not have the 1
generallissimo within its borders but -1
a few, all too few, hours, but in that 1
short space he traveled over half as I
much territory as was covered by the I
marquis in about -two weeks. The
contrast that tAme has broirght in c
transportation was never more vivid- a
ly impressed than -by the two visits. (
Lafayette traveled overland, the '4
roads at tines being so bad tfiat niem- 't
bers of 'the party 'would lose their c
-way and carriage bog axle deep. On t
-more than one occasion serious acci- 4
-dents, were narrowly averted. The (
route ,from Charleston to Savannah e
was reported in such miserable con- I
dition that this trip was made by r
boat, the craft travelling by inland s
waiterways. An official stop was made
.on Edisto island, where the general c
spent 30 minutbs, the exact time Mar- c
Georgia Senator Would Slap Officer's '9
Face. Does Not Like looks.
Washinkton, Dec. 9.-Threats by 0
Seantor Watson (Democrat)- of Geor- a
gia to slap the facd of an army officer,
sitting within touch of his elbow,
threw the meeting of the senate com- s
mittee investigating charges that f
Ameritan soldiers had been illegally
hanged in France .into an uproar to- t
day and brought a tiuick domanid from s
Chairman 'Brandegee for a sergeant- e
at-arms to prevent any physical clash. b~
'For a moment thec utmost confusion
.prevailed. Above the din of shuffling ~
feet as some womon hurried toward C
-The door, the voice of tho chairman, Y
'it strident notes, dommnanded thej
Golgia senator to sit (Iown OP retire
from the roomt Banging the table s
with -bare knuckles, tlie chaiyman g
soon restored a sembylance of -order
but .there were thany heated ex- I
changes b)efore the meeting broke up a
until tomorrow afternoon.I
*Maj. Gleorgo W. Cocheu, attached to1
the genetil staff, was the officer on a
iwhom Senator RVatson launched his c
verbal attack. It happened near the i
close of a brief 'but turbulent meeting r
at which Senator Watson's char~ge t
that the committee "at a secret sos-,'dc
aion had I:rejudited" the case was
characterlzedl by , enator Shields
(Iflemocrat) of Tenn' me, a memberr
of the committee, as untrue and whol- r
ly without foundation. - -,
Attaek Without Warning (
The senator's attack on Miajor 1t
-Cocheu hit -the committee -like' a' crack
of lig'htning. There had 'been j10 inti-t
)lnstion that anything of thie kind was
hnpendig. ,Major Cochon, sItting- 1

Long Remembered
Today will long be remembered in
south Carolina, especially in Green
vood. A hundred years from now
enerations, yet unborn, will talk of
roch's visit. Things lie said wil'l be
epeated, things he did will be re
ated. The .places he visited will be
et apart, the 'things he usedi will be
ield up in veneration and children
rill be tcild that they in turn may tdll
heir descendants of the generalissimo.
ne hundred years from now the
appenings of December 9, 1921, .will
e looked back upon with the same
Istoric pride at, the..people of today
ok upon 'Lafayetitc's tour of March,
Did not the marquis christen a baby
n Wadmallaw Island? Did he not
pont the night at a certain h'ome on
lervais street in Colum'bia? Was not
Afayette hail, which is now in ashe-,
he place he .was quartered in Cam
en? Did he not lay the cornerstone
c the iDdKalb monument? Did he not
ine with the Izards, en route. from
olumbia to Charleston? Did he nqt
mbrace Colonel 'Huger, who sought .to
'e 'his liberator, and his old 'war com
ades, the Generals Pinckney, on th
treets of Chatieston?
-And so in time to come incidents
f today will be oft related, as those
f yesteryear are now ca'lled to mind.
Bet of the major's face, the senator,
is voice pitched high, exclaimed,
For two pennies I'd slap your jaaws."
'he officer did not bat an eye.
Instantly Chairman Brandegee was
n his feet, calling for 'a sergeant-at
rms to protect the officer from "an
isult." Then, dec~lring that he him
elf had been insulted, Senator Wat
on announced tha4 he would retire
rom the meeting.
Taking hold of 'the'situation, Sena
r Shieids declared the committee de
Ired to proceed in order and suggest
d to Senator Watson that he had not
een insulted.
"We expect yonX to conduct yourself
ore in 'the same manner you want
thers to conduct themselves towvards
ou," said Senator 'Shields.
"Insult by Looks"
"An 'insult canu be given by looks,"
enator Watson declared, wheeling
uickLy again to face the offcer.
"If he looks at me again that way,
'll s'la.p his face. I won''t stay here
und -be bulldozed by these offcers--by
ble hrl sawed ibrute."
Major Cocheu \odked straight ahead
t the senator as Chairman Blranidegee
ndleavoredl to& get the proceedings
rithin orderly senate bounds. After
Upeating his commpnd 'that the sena
or sit doiwn or .leave, Chairman Bran
egee and Senator Watson -had a fiery
xchange as to just what had bedn
romised in kotciIng officers out of the
om while any, of the latter's wit
eases wvere testifying.
Finally the chairgian shouted to the
eorgia senator, asking if he wanted
lie orncers sent away, and on being
nformed -that he did, thiey were told
& 'get out.
After -that thingA settled down a
it. Sngiles ciame 'back to Senator Wat
on's face as -he ex-plaindtl -'that 'he
ranted to peg the pardon of 'the com
pittee if.he had'aete9t in an unseemly
sanjner, Gie added, ho~wever, that the
fliCers, sitting thet'e . and gazing at
Im "sin an insolent nlanner," bad
roused .his' "8outhern .blood,"
The committeo later decided to hoar
some army oflicers tomorrow and then
adjourned the open session for a week,
so as to examine the mass of docu
iments presented by Senator Watson.
The senator announced that he had
no witnesses on hand today, but the
committee agreed to summon anybody
he- feilt could give evience as to the
illegal hangings.
A flurry followed a protest by Sena
tor Watson over the action of the
committee in confining the inquiry to
"illelgal hangings." The senator If.
sisted thAt his charges covered broad
