A cartoon by THE STARS & STRIPES illustrator C. LeRoy Baldridge depicting Paris in a way that only the A.E.F. could have witnessed it.
Depicted is a Yank-heavy Place de l'Opera overwhelmed by sight-seeing Doughboys (note the Y.M.C.A. patch on the tour guide) and loitering officers who lounge-about over-priced cafes while gawking at the all the many pretty Parisiennes. In the foreground stands a bewildered Doughboy, dumb-struck by the passing gaze of an appreciative lass. A few steps away a four-gold-chevroned private gets reamed for failing to salute the single-chevron looey. The stage is shared by bickering cabees, melancholy widows, wandering sailors, unforgiving MPs and a hard-charging, over-weight uniformed woman.
