rial Launched in New
Xt'W York, March 10. A move
ment was launched here to establish
a perpetual memorial in honor of
V.'oodrow Wilson "the man who
projected into the world the id-a of
the league ot nations."
After listening to a eulogy of the
former, president by John Drinkwat
bt English playwright, some 500 men
and women voted unanimously to ap
point a temporary committee to work
out details of the memorial. Frank
lin D. Roosevelt, Democratic vice
ptvsideiitial candidate in the last
Election, who presided at the gather
ing, was appointed chairman of the
committee, with Henry Moregnthau,
former ambassador to Turkey, treas
urer. Although the form the me
morial is to take was not definitely
decided upon, it was suggested that a
minimum sum of $500,00 be raised
as a trust fund, the proceeds from
which shall be awarded each year to
the person who during the year has
made the greatest contribution to
ward international amity.
Mr. Drinkwater's address was fre
quently interrupted by applause, par
ticularly when he declared that Mr.
Wilson "conceived beyond his execu
tive capacity a thing that is gen
erally true ot all great historical fig
ures." Most men," said the speaker, "are
prone to bow In submission at the
first assault ot expediency. It Is the
tragedy and the glory of Woodrow
Wilson that he clung tenaciously to
his ideal regardless of personal con
sequences." "It is generally agreed," he con
tinued, "that his tactics were-by no
means perfect. But the strategy
back of them made one ot the great
est contributions to modern civiliza
tion." BARNS DESTROYED DURING
