The paper charges that many
of these Americans are flown to
France—wearing American mili-
tary uniforms. It tells of one
representative of a financial
corporation who landed in Fran-
ce in the uniform of a Red Cross
officer. Within IX hours after
the Allied entry into Paris — he
had changed into civilian cloth-
es and was busy with his clients.
This charge has brought a
quick denial from Harvey Gib-
son, the director of the Ameri-
can Red Cross in the European
Theatre. Gibson told the United
Press that there is no foundation
of fact whatever is the charge.
Gibson says he's the only Red

such thai the question of per-
mits to enter France rests al-
most entirely on the decision and
good will of American officers.
