- A rough, unpainted old chair stood
empty on the northwest corner of
Sixteenth and Douglas streets yes
terday. Upon it hung a funeral
wreath and upon the wreath a strip
of cardboard on which was neatly
pasted a clipping from The Bee of
Friday morning, telling how an un
identified motorist, at Seventeenth
r.nd Cuming streets. Thursday even
ing, ran down and fatally inJuredYoll."
Paul Stadelman, 28, crippled news
boy. Thousands of people paused to
lock at the chair and the wreath and
clipping yesterday. Paul was a fa
miliar figure to most of them. He
had called his papers in all kinds of
weather from that corner for a num
ber of years since coming here from
his former home at Plattsmouth.
Newsboys "hustled" on the other
three corners of Sixteenth and Doug
las streets, but in life they never had
trespassed on the "territory," which
by unwritten law among all "news
ies" of Omaha, had been ceded to
Paul, and even though Paul was not
there in person, the newsboys true
to their years of friendship to their
unfortunate brother, kept faith with
the dead. Omaha Bee.

Washington, Nov. 11. Under the
starry skies of his own' homeland,
' America's unknown dead from
France sleeps tonight, a soldier home
from the wars. Alone he sleeps in
the narrow cell of limestone that
guards his body, but his soul has en
tered into the spirit that is Ameri
ca. Wherever liberty is held in men's
hearts, the honor and the glory and
tne pieage or nign enueavor poured
out over this nameless one of fame,
will be told and sung by Americans
for all time.
- Scrolled across the marble arch of
the memoral raised to American sol
dier and sailor . dead, everywhere,
which stands like a monument be
hind his tomb, runs this legend: "We
here highly ..resolve that these dead
shall not have died in vain."
The words were spoken by martyr
ed Lincoln, over the dead at Gettys
burg. And today, with voice strong,
with determination and ringing with
deep emotion, another president ech
oed that high resolve over the coffin
of the soldier who died for the flag
in France.
Harding Reiterates Lincoln's Words
Great men in the world's affairs
heard that high purpose reiterated by
the man who stands at the head of
the American people. Tomorrow they
will gather in the city that stands
almost in the shadow of the new
American shrine of liberty dedicated
today. They will talk of peace; of the
curbing of the havoc of war. They
will speak of the war in France that
robbed this soldier of life and name
and brought : death to comrades of
all nations by the hundreds of thous
ands. And, in' their ears, when they
meet must ring President Harding's
declaration today beside that flag-
drapped. honor-laden bier: "There
must be, there shall be, the command
ing voice of a conscious civilization
against armed warfare."
Far across the seas, other unknown
dead, hallowed in memory by their
countrymen, as this American soldier
is enshrined in the heart of America,
sleep their last. He, in whose veins
' ran the blood f British forebearers.
; lies beneath a grfit stone in ancient
. Westminster Abbey: he of France,
beneath the Arc de Triomphe and he
of Italy, under the altar of the Fath
erland in Rome. And it seemed to-
j day that they, too, must be here
among the Potomac hills to greet an
American comrade come to Join their
glorious company, to testify their ap
proval of the high words of hope,
spoken by America's president.
Whole Nation Pays Tribute
All day long, the nation poured
out its heart in pride and glory for
the nameless American. Before the
first crash of the minute-guns roar
ed its knell for the dead, from the
shadow of Washington monument,
the people who claim him as their
own were trooping out to do him
honor. They lined the hillside, where
he sleeps tonight; they flowed like
a tide over the slopes about his burial
place; they choked the bridges that
lead across the river to the fields of
the brave, in which he is the latest
As he was carried past thru the
banks of humanity that lined Penn
sylvania avenue, a solemn hush held
the living walls. Yet, there was not
fo much of sorrow as of high pride
in it all, a pride beyond the reach
of shouting and the clamor that
marks less sacred moments in life.
Out there in the avenue was a
simple soldier, dead for honor of the
flag. He was nameless. No man knew
what part in the great life of the na
tion he had filled when last he pass
ed over his home soil. But in France
he had died as Americans always
have been ready to die. for the flag
and what it means. Thev read the
message of the pageant clear; these
silent thousands along the way. They
stood in almost holv awe to take
their own part In what was theirs,

on America's nameless son from

The March to Arlington
After President Harding and most
of the high dignitaries of the gov
ernment had turned aside at the
white house, the procession headed
by its blocks of soldiery, and the bat
talions of sailor comrades, moved on
with Pershing, now flanked by Sec
retaries Weeks and Denby, for the
long road to the tomb. It marched
on, always between the human bord
ers of the way of victory the nation
had made for itself of the great aven
ue; on over the old bridge that spans
the Potomac on up the long hill to
Fort Myer and at last, to the gate of
the great cemetery beyond where sol
dier and sailor folk sleep bv the
thousands. There, the lumbering
guns of the artillery swung aside,
the cavalry drew their horses out of
the long line and left to the foot sol
diers and sailors and marines, the
last stage of the Journey.

It stands crowing the slow slope of
the Mils that sweep upward from
the river and Just across was Wash
ington, its clustered buildings and
monuments to greet dead who have
gone before, a moving picture in. the
aulumn haze.
People in thousands were moving
about the great circle of the amphi
theatre . The great ones to whom
places had been given in the sacred
enclosure and the plain folk who
trudged the long way just to glimpse
the pageant from afar, were finding
their places. Everywhere, within the
pillared enclosure bright uniforms of
foreign soldiers appeared. They were
laden with the jeweled orders of rank
and merit worn to honor an Ameri
can private soldier, greater than any
there in the majesty of his sacrifices;
in the tribute hl3 honors were paid
to all Americans who died.
Down below the platform, placed
for the casket, in a stone vault, lay
wreaths and garlands brought from
'.England's king and guarded by Brit
ish soldiers. To them came the Brit
ish ambassador in the full uniform of
his rank, to bid them keep these trib
utes from overseas safe against that
hou r.
Many Foreign Dignitaries
Above the platform gathered men
whose names ring thru history. Bri-
and, Foch, Beatty, Balfour, Jacques,
Diaz, and others in a brilliant array
cf place and power. They were fol
lowed by others. Baron Kato from
Japan, the Italian statemen and offi
cers, by the notables from all coun
tries gathered here for tomorrow's
conference and by some of the older
figures In American life too old to
walk beside the approaching funeral
Down around the circling pillars,
the marble boxes filled with dis
tinguished men and women, with a
cluster of shattered men from army
hospitals, accompanied by uniformed
nurses, A surpliced choir took its
place to await the dead.
Faint and distant, the silvery
strains of a military band stole into
the big white bowl of the amphithe
atre. The slow cadences and mourn
ing notes of a funeral march grew
clearer and the roll and mutter of
the muffled drums.
At the arch where the choir wait
ed, the hero comrades of the dead,
lifted his casket down and, followed
by the generals and the' admirals,
who had walked beside him from the
capitoI, he was carried to the place of
honor. Ahead, moved the white robed
singers, chanting solemnly. Careful
ly, the casket was placed above the
banked flowers and the marine band
played sacred melodies until the mo
ment the president and Mrs. Hard
ing steDped to their places behind
the casket; then the crashing trium
phant chords of the Star Spangled
Banner swept the gathering , to its
feet again.
Two Minute Pause at Neon
A prayer, carried out over the
crowd by amplifiers so that no word
was missed, took a moment or two,
then the sharp, clear call of the bu
gle rang "attention" and for two
minutes, the nation stood at pause
for the dead, just at high noon. No
sound broke the quiet as all stood
with bowed heads. It was much as
tho a mighty hand had checked the
word of America, from the hosts
within and without.
President Harding stepped forward
beside the coffin to say for America I
the thing that today was nearest to
the nation's heart, that sacrifices
such as this nameless man, fallen in
battle, might perhaps be made un
necessary down thru coming years.
Every word that President Harding
spoke reached every person thru the
amplifiers and reached other thous
ands upon thousands In New York ,
and San Francisco. j
l Mr. Harding showed strong emo-i
tion as his lips formed the last words
of the address. He paused, then with
raised hand and head bowed, went
on in the measured, rolling period of
the Lord's prayer. The response that
came back from the other thousands
out over the slopes beyond, perhaps
from still other thousands away near
the Pacific or close packed in the'
heart of the nation's greatest city. !
rose like a chant. The marble arches
hummed with the solemn sound.
Burial Ritual Spoken
The simple words of the burial
ritual were said by Bishop Brent,
flowers from "war mothers of Ameri
ca and England were laid in place.

head. Then the casket, with its
weight of honors, was loVered into
the crypt. .
A rocking blast of gunfire rang
from the woods. The glittering circle
of bayonets stiffened to a salute to
the dead. Again, the guns shouted
their message of honor and farewell,
again they boomed out; a loyal com
