CEMETERY IN FRANCE
A HALLOWED SPOT
United States Asks France to Pre
vent Any Commercial
Paris, Aug. Id. -In order to pre
vent any commercial encroachment
upon Romagne cemetery, where 2;..
000 American soldiers are buried,
the French government lias been ask
ed by the American army graves rig
istration service authorities to pur
chase the gentle slope facing the
front of tlie cemetery, and the entire
crest of the hill occupied in part by
the cemetery, as well as plots at both
sides. The' Roiliagne, Suresnes, and
P.elleau Woods cemeteries have been
approved by the secretary of war as
the permanent resting places of more
than 30.000 soldier dead; who will
continue to sleep in French scil.
Suresnes. which is on the slope of
Mont Valerien. one of the fort built
to defend Paris, is already protected
against encroachment of any sort,
and the same is nearly true 01 Bel
leau Woods. '
The extra ground to be puichisd
at Romagne will not only safeguard
the cemetery against any encroach
ment, but will provide areas which
will be used by American horticul
tural experts to surround the hallow
ed spot with trees and shrubbery. At
the present time the cemetery is sur
rounded only with a long wall, and
there is no available space for plant
ing. The beaut ificat ion of the, cemetery
will not begin for some months as
most of the bodies in the cemetery
now are to be removed to America,
and this work will not "start until
mid-September and cannot be finished
until some time next year. After
this work is finished bodies frrm
other cem,eteries will be moved in.
