Yes, we are met in memory of the fallen, but I can not escape the thought that the real compensation comes to the living. Tbe fallen do not, can not know, of our remem- brance ot them, but the living may take to their breasts ths consolation that the republic does love and revere, and comfort Itself In so doing.

The fathers had not settled ihe dis- pute In the making and their descend- ants had to fight It out Iq the devel- opment of the nation It has brought us tiie needful concord of union and the greater possibilities of the nation. Wo More War Profiteers. The arguing veterans, 60 years aft- or Gettysburg, on the scene of the world-famed combat, were thinking of Industrial greed In the North- and slave-owning greed In the South But In reality their prejudices had been Inspired by the hateful profiteering Incident to war In all the wars of all time the conscienceless profiteer has put the black blot ot greed upon righteous sacrifice and highly purposed con- flict In our filler understanding of today. In that exalted consciousness that every citistn has his duty to perform, and that his means, his honor and his life are his country's tn a time of national peril, In the next war.

Battles By Boys. "Thus." said the speaker, "It is the truth of history and the lesson of yesterday that the battles of the world are foufeht by boys, sent to premature graves by ambitious, proud old men, without a chance to serve mankind or to taste the Joys of life Fes, war Is the game of old men. In which the stakes are the lives of the youth of the worlS. But I am not here to counsel a revolt of youth against its elders, much as the manner In which the affairs of the world have been con- ducted during the past nine years Justify such discussion, but I tave come to urge on you young sol- diers the Importance to our country and to 'yourselves ft your Joining in united demand upon your govern- ment that It take some kind of ac- tion In an attempt, at least, to or- ganise the world for, peace I am not going to discuss what the form for such organisation should be I think I know what It should be, but this Is not the time nor place for ex- pression of my personal views upon that subject An Inspiration. Fsltk. I spoke a moment ago of the deeper gratitude ewressefl In action My thought was IhH. ttt compensations at ,f or, government s for the disabled. These are Ob- ligations, and their discharge Is a duty There can be a gratitude of action which Is a still finer and nobler thing. It was a nation grateful in action which followed the civ.il war union and reconstruction. Trad Tlrove forward to a concord of union which did not exist prior to the war, re- velled the mutuality of Interest es- sential to the nation expanding In influence and power It was grati- tude of action to develop a union which has been proven to be worth preserving, In spite of all the cost involved. It was gratitude of action which1 led the republic to keep faith with the Ideals of liberty which led the veterans of HIS to strike at oppres- sion With the expanded area of the flag has attended the expanded area of liberty which we grant to others, precisely as we demand for our- selves Dary Is Carry On. It Is the gratitude of action which so cealously commuted us to-the; preservation of the civilization for which the world war veterans fought, and tbe task U on.ly a little less dif- ficult than tkelra. Civilisation can never Be entrenched, it must battle in -the open ever ready to march on. Entrench It and It dies, tea defense must be progressively offensive In the Inspiration of example of you who have thrloe saved the republic, and firm In the of the right- eousness of American Intent, and strong in the faith, we mean to carry on There Is another gratitude of ac- tion which surpasses all expressed m the which I hope to see recorded to glorify the last days of ,ine civil war veterans and to add fullness to the lives of the world war veterans, and tranquillse the lives of all America arid the world I devout- ly wish the United States to 40 Its full part toward making war unlikely if not Impossible While I would abhor a pacifist America, I would re- joice to ha.e the United States proven to be unafraid, and yet the most p.ace-promoting nation In nil the peace-loving and the foremost world have already, preven that we can hate less of armament Lot us strive for tho assurance that we shall have none of war More War He Hopes.
