The German veterans, headed by former Minister of War Otto Gessler, were visiting the cemetary to study ways and means of improving the last resting places of German soldiers who went to their deaths on France’s battlefields. 'Herr Gessler and his party had just finished a tour of the American cemetary when the Gold Star mothers arrived at the gates in a motor bus. Instantly the former war minister and his eight companions, all of them veterans of many conflicts, snapped rigidly to attention, clicking their heels together in Prussian fashion. First they saluted, and then removed their hats and bowed in a gesture of profound respect for the bereaved American mothers. At first, tlie pilgrims mistook the Germans for a local reception committee, and bowed in return, smiling cordially. When informed of Herr Gessler’s Identity, and told that his eight companions led enemy troops through the harrowing years of the war, there were exclaimations of surprise. S. C.
