War Hukj Aixla-Cliapelle
"Among all the places on the map of
Europe that have been made scenes of
feverish activity, none surpass Aix-la-Chapelle
Aachen the Germans call it,"
says the National Geographical Society's
statement. "Here endless supply trains
start out over the fan-like system of rail
roads to the front, and from the front
converge the trains bearing their vast
loads of wounded, converting the Aix
region into a great hospital camp.
If ' ' With the return of spring a more
fitting and more charming place could not
be chosen for convalescence of the suf
ferers from the trench and shell torn
fields of Belgium and Northern France.
Aix-la-Chapelle is set into the hills, sur
rounded with superbly green-notched sky
line, and sheltered by terraced forests,,
broken here and there, in pleasing variety.
"Aix-la-Chapelle is a place of scenic
beauty, a home of modern industry, a
city of churches and of relics. Moreover,
it is a health resort, and has been such
since the days of the disease-worried
high-life of Rome. There are no better
known or more oppressive curative
springs in Europe than the hot sulphur
springs of Aix-la-Chapelle. Perchance
Charlemagne endured the healing offices
of its waters whenever his health became
impaired through his strenuous, bloody
exertions toward the conversion of the
heathens. Tf "Since the establishment of
the Empire, Aachen has sought to forget
and obliterate its advanced age by the
adoption of a sleek modern dress, and its
large business of cloth, silk and metal
manufacture has won it prominent place
in the scramble of modern, cities for in
dustrial and commercial renown. Yet
Charlemange was crowned here, and here
is his tomb. Further, the modest cathe
dral near the center of the town has been
the scene of the crowning of thirty-five
emperors and of eleven queens."
