President, Mrs. Wilson and Party Visit Shell Swept Belgian Frontier
Bt the Associated Press
BRUSSELS, June 19.—President and Mrs. Wilson, with King Albert and Queen Elizabeth as their guides today saw the devastation visited upon Belgium by the Germans. The first part of their visit deeply affected not only Mr. Wilson but those accompanying him. The second pha^e was of an entirely different character.
In the forenoon almost no residents were encountered. In the afternoon the appearance of the president at Ypres, Ostend, Zee-
brugge and finally Brussels, was made the occasion of demonstra
tions that might have been accorded a conquering hero. With the president and Mrs. Wilson were
Miss Margaret Wilson, B. M. Baruch, Norman Davis, General W. W. Harts. Herbert Hoover, chairman of the inter-allied food commis
sion. and Commander Baker.
Belgian Heads Receive Them.
The night run from Paris ended at Adinkerke. just across the Franco-Balgian frontier where King Albert, Queen Elizabeth and a party of Belgian officers waited to receive the president.
There were no ceremonies on the train other than the ordinary greetings and introductions. Through the little station building whica had been elaborately decorated, the party moved to the long line of cars and began its trip Into the shell-torn and as yet, abandoned country.
From time to time the cavalcade halted to permit these visitors to study at close range some bit of fortification or some piece of destruction that was unusually thorough. Xeiuport was the first halt. President Wilson, who was riding with King Albert, followed by Queen Elizabeth and Mrs. Wilson who descended from the next car and walk ed through what had been the city of Xieuport to the ruins of the canal. The only houses there which were intact or even habitable were one or two frame shacks which were recently erected for the entertainment of tourists.
Examine the Trencher.
From Xieuport eastward along the old line of trenches to Dixmude where the lines at one time almost touched each other, the party alighted at one or two places to examine the nature of the trenches. I? then went on toward Ypres. All that part of the ride was in an almost deserted country. There were very few refugees and there could be seen little attempt toward reclaiming the soil.
It was like a dead country. Here and there a civilian was encountered but always his face expressed seemingly hopelessness. Ypres. however, showed greater display of animation. Notwithstanding the terrible destruction wrought there a few* former residents have found their way back and a dozen or more buildings have been erected to serve as hotels, restaurants, drinking places and small shops. They reflect the only industry in the place, catering to tourists, both official and unofficial.
A semblance of civil government has been restored in this district and the burgomaster appeared before the president thanking him for what America had done for Belgium. The British garrison and a number of British nurses added to the crowd that gathered to welcome the party. The work of salvaging war material on the Ypres
battlefield is almost complete but enough remained to add to the depression of the king and his guests. Chattered, battered and broken tanks on both sides of Ypres served to justify its characterization as * the tank graveyard.”
Luncheon in the Forest,
The party had luncheon in picnic style in the Houltheut forest. This piece of wood. like all others in that zone, is but a skeleton of a forest. It was well back of the old German lines. In Menin where the work of destruction was less marked the people gave the party its first greeting of the day. The town was decorated and apparently all the inhabitants were in the streets.
The town of Ostend was most interesting. Mr. and Mrs. Wilson were taken out to the mole which was broken last April by the British and from there saw the rusting parts of the hulls of vessels which were sunk in the channel to the sea.
Brussels was reached at 9:15 o’clock tonig (. Through the cheering crow*ds in the streets and past buildings bright with the flags of Belgium and the United States, the president was taken to the palace where he was presented to members of the household. He was tired with much driving at necessarily high speed over bad roads and retire! comparatively early. His hosts have planned a program for tomorrow which will take up every minute of his time until late at night. During the day he will deliver at least three addresses.

The News is a “cracker jack” paper. It is worth five cents a copy of any man’s money and that is what you should charge for it on the streets.
I have been taking the News for many years and it pleases me to see it making the improvements that have long been needed, and which have placed it in the metropolitan class.
Ada has wonderful future prospects and nothing can help her realize them so much as a good newspaper. May the News continue to grow is the wish of ‘ Your friend,
