. France, thin was due to the good
nnie emubllalied by the first con-
i "n'"' 'rum America
The rrench farmer now km
that when an American soldier ha
chicken for dinner he buys the
chicken, although scores or rowts
msy he scratching In the fields and
In the village streets. He knows
too, that no American soldier ever
stole an apple, a canteloupe or a
pear from, a farmer, because It Is in
the code of this srmy to pay for
everything the men take.
Another consideration that might
have caused reluctance to sccept an
army In billets Is the fart that
French furniers still remember the
crimes of the Boche against women
and young girls.; With another
army the farmer might have taken
a second thought before accepting
Into his home a number of young
men from a foreign country.
But the American record is un
blemished. For In this territory
where the name of the Roche recalls
unmentionable horrors, there . hss
not been a single Instance In whjft
an American soldier ever forgot his
respect for womon. Even the harm
less type of mashing common oa
American street cornets at night Is
absent from the American areas.
The code la simple In Its working,
founded on the pride that each man
has In the good name of his regi
ment. Thousands or French people
will testify to Its effect honesty and
honor In a great body of young Am
erlcan soldiers. ,
