I will add that and made a most inspiring address.

When we think how much we owe to the people about us, we will begin to appreciate how little we have ourselves done in the accomplishment of these things about which we are sometimes tempted to boast. Xow, these things come to us, not from person, but from all. The blessings of education come to us from thc wisdom and the sacrifice of others, and we should generously credit them with 'what they have done. The blessings of a government that we enjoy come from the sacri- fice of millions who have given their lives that their .children might be surrounded by better conditions. that philosophv is sound then it ap- plies to nations as well as to in- iments therein expressed.
