From the Appleton (Wis.) Post-Crescent of May 24, 1920:
Geneva.—"They have pretty nearly convinced me I'm dead," mourns Paul Bergot, French soldier here. He was reported killed in action by the French army. One day a gendarme called on him and he signed a paper he later found was his own death certificate. Now he is fighting in court to prove he is alive. "We have his word for it he is dead," says the government.
