Tribute to the Unknown Soldier of France was paid last night by a group of 100 Jewish volunteers.

The light over the grave of the Unknown Soldier, at the Arc de Triumph, was kindled by the Jewish volunteers at seven o’clock Sunday evening. Large crowds of Jews gathered to witness the solemn ceremony.
