President Sees New Era
With Signing of Treaty
Washington, June 8. (By A. P.) President Wilson, in an address
to the American people on the occasion of the signing of the peace treaty,
made a plea for the acceptance of the treaty and the covenant of the
league of nations without change or reservation. His message, given out
here by Sccrctaiy Tumulty, said:
My fellow cocntrymen:
The treaty of peace has been
signed. If it is) ratified and acted
upon in full an(d sincere execution
of its terms, If. will furnish the
charter for a new order of affairs
in the world.
It is a severe treaty in the
duties and penalties it imposes
upon Germany, but it is severe
only because great wrongs done
by Germany ane to be righted and
repaired; it imposes nothing that
Germany cannot do; and she can
regain her riirhtful standing in
the world by tiae prompt and hon
orable fulfillment of its terms.
And it is much more than a
treaty of pcafc with Germany.
It liberates Croat peoples who
have never before been able to
find the way to liberty. It ends,
once for all, an old and intoler
able order under which small
groups of scfrish men could use
the peoples off great empires to
serve their ambition for power
It associates the free govern
ments of thej world in a perma
nent league fin which they are
pledged to use their united power
to maintain peace by maintain
ing right acid justic. It makes
international; law a reality sup
ported by imperative sanctions.
It docs array with the right of
conquest and) rejects the policy of
annexation and substitutes a new
order undert which backward na
