Columbia City Post ~ Saturday, May 12, 1917
Col. Jos. R. Harrison had the pleasure of being present Tuesday when Gen. Joffre and his fellow Frenchmen visited at Indianapolis. He heard Viviani speak and says he puts a lot of him into his remarks and displays tremendous energy and feeling. The streets were a solid block of humanity for squares. He visited the office of Adjutant-General Smith and says the game there reminded him of a state convention. There is little but war talk wherever one goes.
