If New York and other ports ot debarkation are not to be subjected to "the old Mo saic plague ot lice visited upon Pha raoh and the ancient Egyptians," American soldiers returning from overseas must be thoroughly "de- loused" before they are permitted to meet relatives declared Health Commissioner Copelond In a state' ment today, calling attention that typhus and trench fever are carried by "cooties." American Army of Occupation, Dec. 8. Three or four days will be required, It Is estimated tonight, for the four first-line divisions to com plete their crossing into German ter ritory, although the start was made soon after daylight Sunday. The advance Into Germany was held up by the limited number ot bridges across the Sauer and Moselle rivers. The principal bridges used were those at Echternach, Rosport and WasserbiUlg on the Saner, and Grevenmacher, Wormeldange and Remlch on the Moselle. Several small bridges and fords between these villages were utilized by var ious units. In the village of Cordell, north of Treves, three war-weary German sol' dlers arrived home 'by train from the north just as the American advance guard reached the village. A hand' ful of villagers was at the station to meet the returning Germans. The appearance of the marching Ameri cans appeared to awe two of the Ger mans and their families. This wss not the case, however, iwith the third soldier, whose wife took him by the hand and led him through the vil lage street past the columns of Americans. There were no flags or other deco rations in any of the towns through which the Americans marched and no music except that furnished by the Americans. Wherever the Amer icans asked questions regarding roads, they received courteous re plies. In the restaurants and stores the Germans sold to the American soldiers any goods on hand at war time prices. The natives generally stood or walked as the Americans passed.
