2,000,000 Proud Countrymen
; Do Honor to Flower of
American Soldiers in
New York Parade.
V New York. Sept. 10. (By The
Associated Press.) Over a five-mile
iiower-strewn pathway General Per
shing led his famous First division
down Fifth avenue today to the wild
plaudits of 2,000,000 proud country
men. It was tht last grand review
of the world war for New York and
t was a fitting climax to a long
series of military spectacles.
The commander of America's
armies shared honors with the battle
scarred veterans who won undying
fame on the fields of France. For
til of them it was one of life's most
memorable days. As he rode down
the avenue, the stern lines of the
leader's face relaxed in the now
famous Pershing smile and when he
dismounted in Washington Square
at the end of the march surrounded
by his staff, he exclaimed:
; "It was the most enthusiastic and
patriotic outburst I ever have seen."

Behind Pershing rode a score of
major generals and brigadiers and
back of them strode the command

composite regiment of doughboys,
he flower of six divisions. Stalwart
vyoung giants, magnificent Amer
icans, they scored in the nation s me
tropolis a triumph far dearer to their
hearts than the laurels they won in
the victory reviews of Paris and
London. Nearly all the men wore
Back of "Pershing's Own" swept
the 25,000 regulars of the First di
vision, fully accoutered for war.
Horse, foot and artillery, they swept
down the avenue. It was a dres9
parade, but so far as equipment
went they might have been on their
way to the front. The faces under
the bobbing trench helmets were
stern and business-like. In their
veins was the blood of many races,
but they had been welded together
by the fires of war into an uncon
qeurable unit which beat back the
Prussian guards and broke the pride
of Germany. But they paid the price
of victory, for 5,000 of their com
rades are sleeping their eternal sleep
in France, while 20,000 others bear
the scars of combat.
As Pershing came abreast the
great grandstand at the Metropoli

horse as the cavalryman has been
taught to do, smiling, and saluting
with his gloved hand, while immedi
ately behind streamed the American
colors and the four-starred flag of
a full general.
The commander made but one stop
on the march and that was at St
Patrick cathedral to change horses.
He dismounted amidst a crowd of
girls representing the Knights of
Columbus eager to be the first to
hand him flowers. Upon the cheek
of the victor he implanted a kiss
while she blushed happily.
Seated on a private stand in front
of the cathedral were Cardinal Mer-
cier and a throng of church digni
taries. Pershing paused to welcome
to America the heroic old man who
had so proudly defied the German
invadtrs. The cathedral chimes rang
out in hymns of victory and "The
Star Spangled Banner" as the two
world figures clasped hands.

MYSTERIES OF DEN
UNVEILED AT BIG
Women Guests See Ak-Sar-Ben
For the first time in its history,
with the exception of the annual
coronation ball, the Ak-Sar-Ben den
was thrown open and its mysteries
revealed to curious feminine eyes
The den was the scene of the third
night's entertainment for visiting
merchants and their families. It
was a festive event.
Choice bits from the regular Ak-
Sar-Ben show were rendered in
vaudeville form, as well as other
vaudeville acts secured for the occa
sion. The show was a success.
Then came the carnival dance,
with colored streamers, and ice
cold punch. It is estimated that
1.000 couples swayed to the entic
ing jazz music. It was one of the
largest dances ever held in Omaha.
Many of the dancers were employes
of Omaha jobbing houses, but a
majority were visiting merchants,
the largest number ever assembled
at a merchant market week enter
tainment. The program for today, the last
day of the eighth annual merchants'
market week, includes an airplane
flying exhibition, a dinner and
dance, and the distribution of
$1,000 in prizes to visitors at the
Omaha Field club.

A list of missing and unaccounted
for which at one time was as high
as 25,905, gradually was reduced un
til for weeks it remained at two.
It is now presumed there is no
doubt the two soldiers are dead and
they have been so listed officially.
Of the total first reported miss
ing, 23 per cent died 16 per cent
were found to be prisoners, 25 per
cent were lost from their organiza

subsequently rejoined them. The
remainder were found scattered
through various hospitals.

General Palmer makes it clear that

profiteering or hoarding and that
prosecutions will result when con

The question was raised whether
the penalty would operate to punish
violations committed before the
penalty was made a part of the statute.
'Certainly it will, Mr. Palmer re
turned with energy. "Profiteering
and hoarding were made crimes by
the law two years ago."
Mr. Palmer expressed disappoint
ment that congress so far had failed
to act finally on any of President
Wilson s suggestions.
