Both speakers sounded the note of

Lord Reading said : "Come what may

If civilisation Itself Is not to be hurled

Unselfish In our motive, united In our

Wb reference was made to the Atlan

Lestlns;, and President Nicholas Hurray
Butler treated the subject humorously.
"The enemy Is at our rates," he said.

Secretary Lansing's address went
more fully into denunciation of criticism
of war policies than has been President
Wilson's) wont. He declared his "con

that the Administration Is not to be

"Prusslanism hso appealed to the

the divine law of retribution which we,

force so that the world may forever be

"It Is not my purpose to discuss the

appreciate the consequences of unwisely

Lord Reading preceded Secretary
Lansing. He Interpreted the honor con
ferred on htm by Columbia In awarding
him the degree of doctor of laws as a
manifestation of friendship for the na
tion he represents. He spoke of the
united front America, England and the
other allies are taking in the war and
piid a high tribute to Secretary Lansing.
Early In his speech he referred to the
occasion of his first visit to America,
when the Administration, as Joseph H
Choate put It, waa "neutral." The ref
erence brought a broad smile from Sec
retary Lansing and a general laugh.
"I have heard men strive to distin
guish between the bravery and the valor
and the heroism of the French, of the
Australians, of the Canadians, of the
British, Including the Irish, Welsh and
English, and the Indians, and all who
have come from our empire, and now I
may add the Americans, who are with
us," he said.
Allies Stand as One.
"To all and one I must say that this
is a contest Into which we must not be
divided. We are one. We stand to

continuously during his brief address.
Like Secretary Lansing, hs paid especial
tribute to the three French military men
whs had been honored by the university.
They were L'Abbe O. Benjamin CabaneL

the feat of making her own commence,

or something like that Whole columns
were , written about her doing It with
pictures of the gowns that cost the least
Aasterner service Is required or her now.
In connection with the drive for 21,000
army nurses which Is going on this week
a call has gone out to high school grad
uates to enter training schools for nurses
Immediately upon the close of the school
year. It comes from Mrs. Mary C. C.
Bradford, president of the National Ed
ucation Association and Superintendent
ot Public Instruction In Denver, and the
Red Cross is sending It to all girls' high
schools In the United States.
"Give 'battle to the Hun by rallying In
answer to the call for nurses." Mrs.
Bradford says to the girls who are to
leave school this month. "Our victory
may depend on the enlistment of a large
nursing army. The deepest desire of
the National Education Association Is
that our girls shall say of the Germans,
In the name ot the schools of America,
They shall not passl' "
The drive for 25.000 nurses Is go
ing slowly, and while Miss Florence
Merrlam Johnson, director of the de
partment of nursing for the Atlsntlc
Division, Insisted yesterday that she
wss well satisfied with the results so
far, and that applications for enlist
ment had been so many that the office
had not been able to tabulate them all,
still there Is a feeling 4hat the drive
Is just beginning to get under way,
Five thousand nurses by June II, the
first milestone aimed at Is hardly likely
to be reached.
Of course the fact that the Red Cross
Intended the drive to commence June
10, and made its preparations with that
date tn mind, and the drive was pushed
forward one week, put the organisation
rather at a disadvantage.
More than 200 applications for enroll
men blanks were sent out yesterday by
the Atlantic Division at 44 East Twenty-third
street. These were In reply to
letters requesting them. The committee
for Manhattan, headed by Mrs. William
Klnnlctit Draper, Is making plans to
Interest young women In the nursing
profession, and also to open enrollment
booths for army nurses all over the
Next week, It Is hoped for the Red
