founded No other nation in the world according to Senator David I Walsh of Massachusetts has recognized the dignity the importance and the contribution the sacrifice and the valor of the private

of his birth upon American soil or won it by choice after making America his home or whether when the call came he left our shores technically an alien and preferred to write with his own blood his certificate of nat uralization upon the battlefield of honor is none the less the American doughboy and whatever differences his might have been in creed or ra cial origin in professional social or
