President Visits Wounded
Washington, March 20.-President
Harding combined an errand of
mercy with first hand study of one
of his administrative problems today
by spending more than two hours
among the wounded soldiers at Wal
ter Reed hospital.
Accompanied by Mrs. Harding and
Dr. E. C. Sawyer, his personal physi
cian whom he has charged with an
investigation of the general welfare
of public health and social welfare,
the president looked through the
wards and entertainment rooms of
the hospital, greeting scores of the
patients and asking them what could
be done to make them more comfort
In a short talk from the front steps
of the administration building, he
.told an assemblage of patients and
nurses that he wanted to see a'gov
ernment policy that should fully rec
ognize what the soldiers of the great
war gave to their country, and later
at the Red Cross hut he made a
speech praising the services of wo
men in the winning of the war.
The question of proper hospital
facilities and medical attention for
wounded soldiers is one which has
been much in Mr. Harding's mind
since his election and during today's
visit he asked about many details of
hospital administration. Among other
things he studied the vocational
training system fer the wounded, and
Mrs. Harding brought away as a
souvenir of the vocational plant a
hammered silver jewel case made and
presented to her by Private Joseph
To all of the wounded men with
whom they talked the-president and
Mrs. Harding extended the hospitali
ty of the White House, suggesting
that those from Ohio arrange to come
in a body soon to call on them.
In a talk from the hospital steps,
Mr. Harding recalled the example of
a Confederate war veteran he had
known, who despite the loss of both
arms and one leg always kept talking
cheerfully of the future and of the
opportunities it might bring.
"I offer to you men." continued
Mr. Harding, "that same compensa
tion. Look forward always to the
morrow. I am sorry the burden has
come so hard to you but you may be
sure the government never will be un
mindful of you and your condition."
At the Red Cross hut the president
declare.1, the work of women in the
war and the aftermath of war ranked
as the greatest service ever rendered
by the sex to humanity.
"The greatest thing woman has
done in history," he said, "was the
fulfillment of her part in the winning
of the war for civilization. When
I bring that tribute to you I know
it is the tribute that has been in the
hearts of the men in the armed forces
who felt that you ministered unto
them as only angels of God Almighty
Why Colds Are Dangerous.
It is the serious diseases that colds
lead to that makes them dangerous.
They prepare the system for the re
ception and development of the germs
of influenza, pneumonia, tuberculosis,
dyphtheria, scarlet fever, whooping
cough and measles. You are much
more likely to contract these diseases
when you have a cold. For that rea
son you should get rid of every cold
as quickly as possible. Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy will help you. lt is
widely known as a cure for bad colds.
Get Your Seed Corn or Cot
Here it is after the middle of
March and before you know it the
leaves on the oak trees will be bigger
than "squirrel ears"-corn planting
time on hand and no seed.
Better look into this matter today.
See if the rats or weevils have got
into the supply that you laid aside,
and unless you used careful selection
in this it would be a wise policy to
order some seed corn of a known va
riety from some good seedsman
you will find his ad in The Progress
ive Farmer-and use this seed as an i
The lawyer buys' "better books"
on law so that he can become a bet
ter lawyer. The doctor buys "better
books" on medicine so that he can be
a better doctor. Books to the lawyer
and doctor are "seed" and the think
ing farmer buys "better seed" so that
he can produce better crops. Think
this over and send in that order to
day. Remember the reliability of
Progressive Farmer advertisers is
guaranteed, and ch^re are lots of peo
ple anxious to help you.
While you are thinking about corn,
don't forget your cotton seed. One of
the best means of fighting that
"pesky" weevil is by planting early
fruiting cotton-beat his time. If
your cotton was late last year, the
weevil .got more than his share. Get
even with him this year. Nobody will
get mad if you "cheat" him a little.
Cotton seed, lots and lots of them,
are being advertised in The Progress
ive Farmer-look them up and order
tc day.-Progressive Farmer.
