With the American Army in France
Thursday, Nov. 29. Every American
soldier in France spent u real Ameri

on turkey and all that goes with it
until he could eat no more.
The feature of the day was a foot
ball game in which a team from the

engineers aeieaieu a icam irom uic
infantry. The game was watched
by thousands of American troops and
1,000 French soldiers who were home
from the front on leave. The shouts
from the respective rooters were
hear far afield, and towards the end
of the frame the French soldiers, get
ting the hang of it, became just as
enthusiastic as the Americans and
joined in the cheering.
Virtually all instruction work and
'drilling was suspended for the day,
and in some places the men were per
mitted to stay out an hour later to
night. In nearly all camp masses the
men themselves supplemented the din
ner with boxes of cigars and other
luxuries, and for the time many an
American soldier thought he was at

dinner which had been served by so-
ciptv orirlft anrl matrons.
f Many of the men in uniform had

Scores of the soldiers and sailors

marched out, some in squad forma

"They are going just where the
government does not want them to go
and where we are trying to prevent
them from going," said JVarnum
Nott, an officer of the service com

London Press Attacks Letter of
Lansdowne With Peace Ideas
London, Nov. 30. The marquis of
Lansdowne's letter giving peace sug
gestions holds first place in the edi
torial columns of the London morn
ing newspapers, but, with the excep
tion of the radical Daily News, which
approves it. and the moderate Daily
Telegraph, which indorses it in part,
it is denounced.
Insistence is general that he could
not have chosen a worse time to
launch the letter than when Ger
many is dickering a peace with the
Leninites, the allied conference meet
ing in Paris and enemv agents try
ing to induce the Italian army to
abandon the fight.
The Times declares that Lord
Lansdowne could not have taken a
step better calculated to hearten
Germany to prolong the war. It says
his arguments are weak and illogi
cal ana that the whole letter is "ex
traordinarily foolish and mischiev
ous." Camouflage of Words.
The Morning Post says that the
real mischief of Lord Lansdowne's
letter is that it gilds German fetters
with fine phrases and spreads a cam
ouflage of words over a proposal to
surrender. The comment of the Daily
Chronicle, although adverse, is
worded moderately and refers to
President Wilson's reply to the papal
peace note. It says that if a ques-

tion of Lansdowne's judgment against
that of President Wilson it would
stronglv prefer the president's.
The Daily Mail heads its editorial
with the words, "The White Flag,"
and concludes it with denunciatory
comment, declaring that Lansdowne
is alone in his surrender.
The Daily Telegraph agrees with
the writer in the main principle;
namely, the desirability of co-ordinating
and elucidating the war aims of
the allies. It disagrees, however, on
several points, notably the question
of freedom of the seas.
To Help Germany.
The Daily Express fears that the
letter will harden Germany's resolve
to conquer, while the Graphic de
scribes it as the outpouring of a man
who is so weary of war that he can
only wring his hands in despair.
The Daily News says: "The letter
is as conspicuous for its courage as
for its largeness and sanity of vi
sion. He does immeasur
able service to humanity in setting
nrtore an tne nations tne amy ot a
will to peace. The way to
which Lord Lansdowne points, to
which President Wilson has pointed
and which Asquith, Balfour, Von
Bethmann-Hollweg, Grerin, Briand
and Smuts have approved' is a way to
restore to the shattered world the
security and stability of peace."
