The foreign correspondent for PATHFINDER MAGAZINE filed this paragraph concerning the much anticipated event that took place in Germany on June 30, 1930 when the last Allied regiments had fulfilled their occupation duties mandated under the Treaty of Versailles and withdrew to their own borders:
"For the most part the German population waited patiently until the last uniformed Frenchman had entrained and then they raised the German flags, [and] began to sing 'Deutschland Ueber Alles'..."
"President Hindenburg issued a proclamation saying in part:
'After long years of hardships and waiting, the demand of all Germans was today fulfilled. Loyalty to her fatherland, patient perseverance and common sacrifices have restored to the occupied territory the highest possession of every people - freedom.'"
