It vva tt ie capital , it\'~ formal welcome to America’s great military cot uinamler and his men. I ong before the time for the parade J> g:nt i„iui, the streets filled with long lines ot people who waited patientlv for the march to begin. In addition to the enthusiasm lor Cieneral Pershing per sonally, there was an added interest in the tact that it was the hirst 1 Jivision which was on parade, hirst not only in the number of its organization on the ofticial records ol the war department, but first to land in France, first do lire a shot at the linns and in numerous other wav . A nd I In welcome accorded the boys marching in the ranks was not l,.„. heartfelt than that accorded to their gallant leader. The First Division, first units or which returned home today from Germany, is justly proud of its claim us being “the first division in France; first in a fighting sector; first to fire a shot at the German ; first t„ attack; first to conduct » raid; first to be raided; first to cap ture prisoners; first to inflict casual I li,.,,; lirsl to suffer casualties; first in be cited singly in general orders; lirsl in lhi< number of division, corps and army commanders and gen eral staff officers produced from its personnel.” Tbe official history of the divi : ion shows it was organized in France, the last units to arrive reach ing that country July 2, 1917. It was composed of troops of the regn lar army, (he sixteenth, eighteenth, twenty-sixth and twenty eighth intan try regiments; the fifth, sixth and seventh artillery regiments; the first engineer regiment and train; the second field signal battalion and the third, fourth and fifth ambulance companies and field hospital. It occupied successively the Som luervilh sector, near Nancy; the Ansauville sector, near Tout; the t’antigny sector, near Montdidier; participated in the Soisson’s opera tion southwest of Soissons; occupied the Saizerais sector; participated in the St. Miltiel operation; the Meuse Argonne operation in tin* Sheppy sec tor, west of Varennes; the opera tion against Mouzon, and the opera tion south and southwest of Sedan, attacking the heights on the morn ing of November 7, 1918. On November 17 it began the memorable march thru Lorraine and Luxemburg reaching the Coblenz bridgehead on the Rhine, December 11, 1 tilS, which position il held un til relieved recently by other Arneri can troops. Replacements in the division up to the time of the armistice totalled 30,206 and the losses in killed and dieil of wounds were 4,411; wounded and gassed 17,201, and prisoners tost 162. It captured 6,467 Germans; 119 pieces of artillery, 62 trench mortars and 413 machine guns. Tile total of Distiguished Services Crosses awarded the men of the division was 366 Major General William L Siberl commanded the division from June 8, 1917 to December 12, 1917: Major General Robert L. Bullard from Do ceniber 13, 1917, until lie became corps c iiumandcr; Major General Charles 1’. Summerall from July 20, 1918, to October 11, 1918; Brigadier j General Frank R. Bamford from Oc tober 12, 1918, to October 24, 1918: Brigadier General Frank Parker look command on October 26, 1918, and I from May 31, 1919, Major General R. F. McGlaohlin, Jr, was in rum aland of the division.

Sept. 17 (/P) III his address de livered tonight before a lar^e and enthusiastic audience, 1’resident Wilson asserted that the league ot nations pre sents, in itsell, the onl\ reasonable solution to the Shantung question. He declared that the society of nations olfers the first trauma I before which China can brine; a complaint ol her wrongs and which will have the riight and jurisdiction to adjust questions ot this kind. Touching upon the Shantung question, the President said, in part: ‘‘Neither the L'uited States nor the men, who are now protesting the Shantung award ottered one word of protest to the original cession ot rights there to Ccnnanv. Nor was ari\ protest enured h\ these same men or taction when Chinese terrilon was taken In Prance, Ptigland and other great powers.” The reception ot Pit idem Wilson, when he appeared at the Civic auditorium tonight, was one ot the greatest ova tions that has been accorded him on hi Iran continental speaking tour. When he appeared on the stage, the im mense audience chcen-d for thirteen minute-- and it was mam more before the house became quiet enough tor the introduc torv remarks Idle auditorium eats twelve thousand peo i ile and it was packed with hundred- ol per-oils crowded into the available standing space. The noisiness ol the crowd made the speaking of the President ver> difficult, it being (practically impossible to keep the congregated people i rom I voicing aloud their admiration lor the chiel executive.

IRELAND’S CASE He pointed out the folly of Ireland’s attempt to stir up opposition to the league saying, “Ireland’s own case could properly be settled by the league. Her claims could not come before the peace conlerence at \ ersailles because they did not come within the jurisdiction ol that body, but there is nothing to prevent those same claims irom being presented to the league of nations alter it i established._ ing here.
