Prance. Nov. 1.—4CDN)-Next spring
the families of the 134,000 American
soldiers who sleep beneath the soil
of the Europe they died to free will
be invited to visit their son's graves.
They will also be asked to decide
whether they wish their bodies re-
turned to America. ,
Here at Villeneuve cemetery, high
atop a French hill overlooking the
wooded curves of the valley road to
Paris, guarded night and day by a
detachment ot the army graves regis-
tration conunand, lie 300 American
boys. White\roases in symmetric lines
stud its beautifully trimmed lawns. A
white stone wall marks its boundaries
behind which a grange of fir trees
shivers in the wind.
Graves Are Deeorated
Townsfolk from the nearby village
often climb the hills in an afternoon,
their arms laden with flowers for
their fallen liberators. Each visitor
chooses a different grave each time
for "we don’t want to forget anyone.”
I visited here Friday with Maj.
Robert C. Crisson of the graves regis-
tration command as guide. The boys
buried here lie close to the spot where
