Yank Corporal Kissed by 1,000 Girls in 2 Days CLEVELAND, Dec. 21. Corp. Louis Romanelli writes,, home from France that he was kissed by at least a thousand girls in the two days fol lowing the signing of the armistice. He is modest about it. His letter indicates his belief that he was not admired for hjmaelf alone. He in timates that he was kissed as a rep resentative of America, in recogni tion and gratitude for what his coun try did to help France. By that is not the view "of it held by his mother, Mrs. Mary Romanelli. She is not in the least surprised that he would be kissed by a thousand girls. She says he is a young man in a thousand, and thinks it quite natural most young women should be attract ed. . Corporal Romanelli is nineteen. He is with the Lakeside hospital unit. Republican Commander Warns French Today Shortest In the Year France Says 64 Billion Francs Was War Damage ODESSA, Dec. 20. Ukranian sep aratist troops of the Petlura forces entered Kiev the capital of Ukraine, on Saturday. The hetman of the Uk raine abdicated yesterday.

We have overthrown the aristocratic government of the hetman through out the Ukraine, except in Kiev, which we expect our troops to en ter without bloodshed tomorrow. "If foreign troops are used as agents of reaction they will find against them the mass of the people and a disciplined army powerful enough to seize the country as it has done in the past fortnight with the aid of the peasants and the popula tions of the small towns. The ques tions of the boundary of Ukraine and separation from great Russia can wait until the question cf internal democracy is settled." The French who occupy the wa iter front zone, have had no relations with the, present Ukranian authori ties except for a message transmit ted today through the Danish ccnsul to the republican commissioner that will be held responsible for any dam age done to the property of the French citizens. There will be only nine hours and 42 minutes of daylight Saturday, but on every day following the amount of light will increase until midsummer.
