llic path of (Imt line of compicst; tho
Tttiklsh empire, whn.su Interests who
profcsicd to make her own hiy In the
illrcL'l path Unit she Intended lo trnxtl,
' Anil now what Iiuk happened? The
Austro-Iluiigiirliin empire" linn gone to
piecoH mid tho Turkish empire linn dls
nppeared, nnd tho nations that effected
that Rieat i vault for It wan a result of
llherntlomtro now responsible us tlie
irustcos of tho assets of thotio (treat
nations, Inn not only wotdd have weak
nations lying Iti this path hut you would
have nations In which that old poisonous
seed of Intrigue could he planted with the
certainty that tho crop would he
nhlindant, ntul one of tho things that the
Leaguo of Nations Is Intended lo watch
Is the course of Intrigue. Intrlguo can
not stand publicity, and If tho Leaguo of
Nations wero nothing Imt a great debat
ing society It would kill Intrigue.
"It Is ono of the agreements of this
covenant that It Is the friendly right of
every nation a member of the league
to call attention lo anything that It
thinks will disturb tho peace of tho world,
no matter where that thing Is occurring.
"There Is no subject that may touch
the pence of the world which Is exempt
fnm inquiry and discussion, and I think
everybody here present will agrco with
me that Germany would never have gone
'o war It she had permitted the world
to discuss the aggression upon Serbia
for a single week.
"The British foreign ofllco suggested,
It pleaded that there might bo a day or
two delay so that the representatives
of tho nations of Europe could get to
gether and discuss the possibilities of n
settlement. Germany did not dare per
mit a day's discussion. You know what
happened. So soon as the world realized
that an outlaw was at lurgo, tho nations
began one b ono to draw together
NOTICE TO OUTLAW NATION!!
"We know for a certainty that If Ger
many had thought for a. moment that
Great Hrltaln would go In with Franco
nnd with Russia she never would havo
undertaken the enterprise, and the league
of na I.' if Is meant as a notice to all
outlaw nations that not only Great
Britain, but tho United States and tho
tost of the world will go in to stop en
terprises of thnt sort. So tho leaguo
of nations Is nothing more nor lens than
he covenant that tho world will-always
m ilntuln the standards which It has
now vindicated to some of the most
pre. lr.U3 blood ever spilt.
"Tho liberated peoples of the Austro
Hungarlan empire and of tho Turkish
empire call out to us for this thing. It
has not arisen In the council of states
men. Europe Is a hit sick at heart at
this very moment, because It sees that
statesmen have had no vision, and that
.the only vision has been the vision of
tilu people. Those who sulfur see.
Those against whom wrong Is wrought
know how desirable is the right and tho
"Tie nations that have long been under
the lnel o' the Austrian, that have long
cowered before the German, that have
long uf ered the Indescribable agonies
of being sn.erned by the Turk, havo
-ailed otu to the world, generation after
gentiati. i to.- justice, for liberation, for
succor; mil no Ti lnet in the world has
hr nd the n.
I'r vale organizations, pitying hearts,
philsunl ropic men and women have
pom - 1 out their treasure in order to
iCl.eVe Ur se sufferings; but no nation
luis said to the nations responsible 'You
must stun, this thing Is Intolerable, and
we will not permit it.' Aiid the vision
hai In en Willi the people.
- ".Vy 'nends 1 wish you would reflect
upoti tins proposition. The vision as to
vha' I tie.-es ary for great reforms bus
soldo i i jiv from the lop In the nations
of t world. It has come from the need
and the aspli atlon and the self-assertion
of gieiu bodies of men who meant lo bo
free And I can explain some of tho
criticisms which have been leveled against
this great enterprise only by the sup
position that tlie men who utter the
criticism have never felt the great pulse
of the heart of the world.
"And I am .amazed not alarmed but
amazed that there should bo In some
quarters such a comprehensive ignorance
of tlie state of tile wmld. These gentle
men do not know what the mind of men
Is just now, Everybody else does. I do
not know where they have Tieen closeted;
do not know by what Inilueucees they
havo been blinded: but I do know that
they havo separated from the general
cui-rents of the thoughts of mnnkind.
"And I want to utter this solemn warn
ing, not in the way of a threat; tho forces
of the world do not threaten, they oper
ate. The great tides of the world do not
give notice that they are going to rise and
i tin; they riso in their majesty and over
whelm might and those who stand In
tho way are overwhelmed. Now the heart
of tho world Is awake, and the heart of
tho world must be satisfied.
"Do not let yourself suppose for a mo
ment that the uneasiness In tho popula
tions of Europe Is duo entirely to eco
nomic causes or economic motives. Some
thing very much deeper underlies It all'
"They sec that their governments havo
never been able to defend them against In
trigue or aggression, and that there Is no
force cr foresight or of prudence In nny
modern cabinet to stop war and therefore
they say 'Thero must be somo funda
mental causo for this' and the fundamen
tal cause they aro beginning to perceive
to ho that nations havo stood singly or
In littlo Jealous groups against each other,
fostering prejudices, Increasing tho dan
ger of war, rather than concerting moaB
ures to prevent it; and that If there Is
right In the woild, If there Is Justlco In
the world, thero Is no reason why nations
should bo divided In the support of justlse.
"They aro thcreforo saying If you
really bellovo that thero Is a right,
If you really believe that wars ought
to bo stopped, stop thinking' about tho
rival; Interests of nations, and think
nbout inon nnd women nnd childron
throughout tho world.
"NatlotiH aro not made to afford dis
tinction to their rulers by way of suc
cess in tho manoeuvres of politics;
nations aro meant, if they aro mennt
for anything, to mako tho men and
women and children In them securo
ami happy and prosperous, nnd no
nation has tho right to sot up Its
special Interests against tho Interests
ind benefits of mankind, least of all
IIiIh great nation which wo love.
"It wiih sot up for tho benefit of mnn
kind, II was set up lo Illustrate tho
highest IdoalH and to nchlovo tho high
est aspirations of inon who wanted lo
he frco; and tho world tho world of
to-day believes that and counts on
UK. and would bo thrown baolc Into
tin blackness of despair If wo de
be rled It,
'I' have tried mini and again, my
fellow citizens, lo say to littlo clr
i leu of friends or to larger hodlos,
v ia scenri to he tho real hope of tho
i I of Eumpe, and I toll you
I l' "1 hnvo not hern ahla to do so
l o e v ben tho thought tries to
I itt I" Pilo ispcoch, the profound
nuulioii of tho llilny: Is too much;
speech will not carry, I hnvo folt tho
tragedy of tho hopo of tltoso suffering
"It Is tragedy because it Is a hope
which cannot bo realized In Its per
fection, and yet I havo folt besides
Its tragedy, Its compulsion, Its com
pulsion upon every living: man to ex
orcise overy Influence that, ho ban
to the utmost to seo that as littlo an
possible of that hopo Is disappointed
because If men cannot now, after this
itgony of bloody sweat, como to their
Belf possession nnd see how to rcgu
lato tho affairs of tho world, wo will
sink hack Into a period of strugglo
In which thero will ho no hope, nnd
thoioforo no mercy. Thero can ho no
mercy where there Is no hope, for
why should you spnro nnothcr If you,
cuiinot expote to perish. Why should
you bo pitiful If you can got no pity?
Why should you bo Just If, upon overy
hand you aro put upon?
WHERE T11H CRITICS Aim BLIND.
"There Is another thlnpr which I
think tho critics of this covenant have
not observed. They not only havo not
observed the tompcr of the world, but
they hnvo not even observed tho tem
per of thoko splendid boys In khaki
that thoy sent across the seas. 1. havo
had tho proud consciousness of tho
reflected glory of those boys, be
caitso the constitution made mo their
commnndor-ln-chlef nnd they havo
taught mo somo lessons. When wo
went Into the war, we went Into -It
on tho basis of declarations which; It
was my privilege to utter, because I
bellovo them to bo an Interpretation
of the purpose iwid thought of the
people of the United States.
"And those boys went over there with
tho feeling that they were sacredly bound
to the realization of those Ideals; that
they were not only going over thero to
beat Germany; they wero not going over
thero merely with re.ieptinent In their
hearts against a particular outlaw na
tion; but that tlffy were crossing these
3,000 miles cjf sea In. order to, show to
ICuropo that tho United . States, when It
became necessary, would go anywhere
where the rights of mankind were threat
ened. "They would not sit still In tho trenches.
They would not, bo restrained by tho
prudence of experienced continental com-
manders. They thought they had como
over there, to do a particular tiling, and
they were going to do It and do It at
once. And. Just as soon as that rush of
spirit ns well as rush of. body camo in
contact with the lines of the enemy, they
began to break, and they continued to
break until the end. They continued to
break, my fellow citizens, not merely
because of the physical force of those
lusty youngsters, but because of the
Irresistible spiritual force of tho armies
of the United States. It was that they
felt. It was that that awed them. It
was that that made them feel, If thoso
youngsters iver got a foothold, they
could never be dislodged and therefore
every foot" of ground that they won was
permanently won for the liberty of man
WILL FIGHT TO Till! KND
"And do you suppose that having felt
that crusading spirit of these youngsters,
who went over, there not to glorify
America but to serve their fellow men.
I am going to permit,-myself for one
moment to slacken In my effort to be
worthy of them and their cause. What
I said at the opening I said with a deeper
meaning than perhaps you have caught;
I do mean not to come back until it Is
over over there and It must not be over
until the nations of the world are assured
of lite permanency of peace.
"Gentlemen on this side of tlie water
would be very much profited by gotttng
Into communication with some gentle
men on the other side of the water. We
some times think, my fellow citizens, that
the experienced statesmen of tho
European nations are an unusually hard
headed set 'of men, bj' whlclfwe generally
mean, although we do not admit It, that
they are a lilt cynical; that they say:
'This Is a very practical world' by which
you always mean that it is not an ideal
world; that thoy do not bellevo that
things can be settled upon an Ideal basis.
Well I never came Into Intimate contact,
with them before, but It they used to lie
that way they are not that way now.
They have been subdued, If that was
once their temper. by tho awful
slgnlfitniice of recent events and tlm
awful Importance of what Is to ensue;
and there Is not one of them with whom
1 have come in contact, who does not
feel that he cannot In conscience return
to bis people from Purls upless be has
done his utmost to do something more
than attach his name to 'a treaty of
peace, livery man In , the conference
knows that the treaty of peace lu Itself
will be Inoperative as Mr., Taft has said
without 'this constnnt support and energy
of a great organization such as Is sup
piled by the League of Nations.
MANY WERE SKEPTICAL
"And men who, when I first went over
there were skeptical of the possibility
of forming a league of nations, admitted
that If we could but form it, it would
be an Invaluable Instrumentality through
which to securo the operation bf the vari
ous parts or tho treaty and when tnat
treaty comes back gentlemen on this
side will llnd the covenant not only in
It, but so mnny threads of tho treaty tied
to the covenant that you cannot dissect
the covenant from the treaty without
destroying tho whole vital structure. The
structure of peace will not be vital with
out the leaguo of nations and no man Is
going lo bring back a cadaver with him.
"I must say that I havo been puzzled
by somo of the criticisms not by tho
criticisms themselves; I cannot under
stand them perfectly, even when there
was no foundation for them; but by the
fuct of tho criticism. I cannot Imagine
how these gentlemen can live nnd not
llvo in tho atmosphoro of the world. I
cannot Imagine how they can llvo and
not bo in contact with the events of the
times, and I particularly cannot imagine
how they can bo Amerlcnns and set up a
doctrine of careful selfishness, thought
out to. the last detail. I havo heard no
counsel of generosity in their criticism.
I have heard no constructive suggestion.
I havo heard nothing except 'Will It not
be dangerous to us to help tho world?'
It would be fatal to us not to holp It.
"From being what I will venturo to
call the famous nnd tho most, powerful
nation In tho world we would of a sud
den havo become the most contemptible
So, 1 did not need to bo told, as 1 havo
boon told, that tho people of tho United
States vfbuld support this co.vonant. I
am an American and I knew they would.
In conclusion the President sulci;
"It Is Inconceivable thnt wo should
disappoint them and wc shall not.
Tho day will como when men In
America will look back with swelling-
hearts nnd rising prldo that thoy
should havo boon privileged to muko
tho sacrifice which It wiih necessary
to mn,ko lu onler to combine; their
might and their moral power with the
cause of Justlco for-men of overy kind
"God give us the strength and vision
, to do It wisely, God glvo us thu prlvl
j lego' of knowing that wo did It with-.
I out counting tho cost, and because wo
.were trim Americans, lovers of Hboity
I and of doing; right,"

HAD OILY FLAVOR
CrlllcKni Mnilc of Mnny Snniples In
Hilticntlntiiil Mutter Scoring
The first of tho seven educntlonal but
ter scorings for the year 1919 wns held
at the dairy department of the University
of Vermont extension service, following
tlie short course for experienced butter
makers. Forty-two samples In nil woro
"cored hut only thirty wero entered In
the competition for prizes. Twenty-four
creamery samples attained an nverago
score of 91 and six farm samples aver
aged 63.1, which Indicates the Importance
of fresh raw material.
Dr. K. K. Guthrie did the scoring and
made the following comments:
"I wish to say that many samples
showed nn oily flavor and others con
tained either poor milk or old cream
flavors. My most severe criticism was
tho seeming lack of carefulness In
handling the milk or cream or In ripening
"One bitttormaker who was present
called my attention to two samples of
butter mndo from tho snmo batch of
cream. The first, and hotter goods was
made from the portion Svhlch was
pasteurized md ripened with a good
starter soon nfter the cream was
separated or received. The other portion
was sent to another place and then mndo
Into butter In n slmllnr way. The differ
ence In flavor was attributed to deteriora
tion of tho cream when in transit. This
emphasizes the Importance of not work
ing slowly with dnlry products for tho
bacteria In them work fast. In other
words the milk nnd cream should he held
only for short periods nnd then nt
sufficiently low temperatures to hold tho
growth of bacteria In check. Immediately
after pasteurization a good starter should
be added and the cream should bo
ripened to .1 or .5 per cent, ncldlty, and
It should then be held at a low tempera
ture until time for churning.
"I do not have much criticism of the
body of tho butter. In general It would
be advisable lo work It at n trifle lower
temperature and the working process
should continue a little longer. This
would give Hie butter a more waxy ap
pearance and also tho color would bo
Improved for several of the samples
showed a wavy condition.
"Judging from the nimenrance of the
packages on exhibition, 1 would say that
the Vermont buttcrmakers have a good
sense of neatness. This Is very Important
for many of us almost taste with our
eyes. I am sure that It Is true of many
purchasers of butter."
Dr. Guthrie suggested, Inasmuch as the
New England .standard is approximately
two points higher than Hie one to which
he Is accustomed, that his scores be
arbitrarily raised two points, which
"would be more Just to the makers since
most of their goods are placed wlth the
higher standard In mind. The scores
given have been so changed.
Tho prizes for this scoring were all
donated by the Vermont Farm Machine
company of Bellows Falls, through tho
