TRIAL OF A MARSHAL Army Symbolises Genius Of French People Rec. 2 p.m. LONDON, July 23. Marked interest in the Petain trial is being evinced in London, where it is properly counted as one of the many strange events of a strange era. It is pointed out that a marshal of France is a great personage, perhaps he greatest of all in a country like France, where the Army, more than any other national institution, has seemed to symbolise the whole genius of the French people.

The Daily Telegraph sums up British feeling when it says: "The necessity for trying him is as regrettable to most Frenchmen as to friends of France in Britain, who all hope the proceedings will be calm, dignified and dispassionate."
