PAGE TBHf _ Gen. Giraud Dies In Native France Famed Hero of Two World Wars Set Up Resistance Armies PARTS, March 12. MV—France today mourned the death of Gon. Henri Honore Olraud, a fightmi; hero of Iwo world wars who died last night. Gtraud made a dramatic e.scnpe from the Nazis in 1942—his .sixth break-out from German prisons in two wars—to help organize free Fiench resistance In Africa. The day before he died he was awarded his nations highest military decoration—the Mcclaillc Mil- Itaire. This Is usually given only to enlisted men and it Is unusual distinction for tin officer to receive it. Tlie general died at a military " hospital in Dijon alter an attack of food poisoning. He was 10 years old. A distinguished military career that started at Franco's tnmcd St. Cvr Military Academy in 1898 ended when Gen Charles De Gaulle forced Giraud" retirement In 1044. There was bitter rivalry between the two then-exiled leaders. I Giraud was taken prisoner in the front lines in Die rapid German advance In the 1040 battle of France. Commanding the French arm es in Northern France at the I me, he fought tb the last in a fruitless attempt to stem the German tide. At Sedan when the French Ninth Army collapsed, he sent a histonc last message: ••Headquarters surrounded by 100 tank?. Am destroying them." VLI'llUif ILLB (AKK.)'
