"General Pershing ''merited the
great and sustained confidence tbat
was reposed In him. We honor Gen
eral Pershing; because he looked to
the end, and aimed at it success

all the honors that can be bestowed

remember those American troops
who fought so valiantly, shoulder to
shoulder with us, on the British
front and stood ready In the rear to
support us in case of need. These
things go very deep into hearts of
nations, and General 'Pershing will
always personify for us the fine anlr-

Americans fought the areat war in
