    France.

    Various shots of French writer & politician Auguste Maurice Barres. CU of Barres seated in room, he writes something in a notebook.

    Short shot of M. Barres at army base? Looks as if they just caught a shot of him in passing - he turns and speaks then walks on, soldier stands nearby.

    Barres standing in front of an altar set up on a platform outdoors, he is making a speech. Another shot of Barres speaking with soldiers (including Marshal Petain?) and civilians watching.

    American cataloguer's note: Barres served in the Chamber of Deputies and wrote patriotic novels. During WW1 he wrote a series of daily articles which were collectively published as L'Ame Francaise et la Guerre (The French Spirit and the War).
