Burial here is rather more than a sign of the government's favor, it is a suggestion of a tomb in the heart of the nation, sorrowing for its noble dead. Today's ceremonies proclaim that the hero unknown is not unhonored. We gather him to the nation's breast, within the shadow of the capital, of the toweritg shaft that honors Wash- ington, the great father and of the exquisite monument to Lincoln, the martyred savior. Here the inspira- ti(;ns of yesterday and the conscience" of today forever unite to make the re- public worthy of his death for flag and country. Ours are lofty resolutions today, ms with tribute to the dead we consecrate ourselves to a better order for the living. With all my heart I wish we might say to the defenders who .sur- vive, to mothers who sorrow, to wid- ow. and children who moun, that no such sacrifice shall be a.ked again. It was my fortune recently to see a demonstration of modern war. It is no longer a conflict in chivalry; no more ff test of militant manhood. It is only cruel, deliberate, scientific des- truction. There was no connding enemy, only the theoretical defense of a hupathetic objective. But the at- tack was made with all the relentless methods of modern destruction.

I speak not as a pacilst fearing war, but as one who loves justice and hates war. I speak as one who believes the highest function of government is to give its citizens the security of peace; the opportunity to achieve and the pursuit of happiness. The loftiest tribute we can bestow todaythe heroically earned tribute --fashioned in deliberate conviction, out of unclouded thought, neither shadowed by remorse nor made vain by fancies, is the commitment of this republic to an advancement never nade before. If American achievement is cherished pride at home; if our sel- fishne among nations is all we wish it to be, and ours is a helpful example in the world, then let us give of our influence and our strength; yea, of our aspirations and convictions to put mankind on a little higher plane, ex- ulting and, exalting; with wars, dis- tressig and depressing tragedies bar- red from the stage of righteous civil- ization. There have been a thousand de- fenses justly and patriotically made; a thousand offenses which reason and righteousnes ought to have stayed.

Standing today on hallowed ground: conscious that all America has halted to share in the tribute of heart and mind and soul to this fellow American, and knowing that the world is noting this expression of the republic's mind- fulne, it is fitting to say that his sacrifice and that of the million dead, shall not be in vain. There must be, there shall be, the commanding voice of a conscious civilization against armed warfare. As we return this poor day to its mother soil, garlanded by love and cov- ered with the decorations that only nations can bestow, I can sense the prayers of our people, of all peoples, that this Armistice day shall mark the beginning of a new and lasting era of peace en earth, good will among men. Let me join in that prayer Our Father who art in Heaven, hal- lowed by Thy name; Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our tres- passes as we forgive those who tres- pass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil, for Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen. She---"I don't see why it is you find poker so fascinating ? A. D. T--"It' the queens in the deck, my dear. "They remind me so much of yo."
