Solemn Pride In Heroism Of Men
Who Gave All Fill Armistice Day
Reflections, Says Wilson Message
WASHINGTON, D. C. Nov. 11.
Addressed to "my fellow country
men," an Armistice day massage was
iaaued by president Wilson Monday ss
follows:
"A year ago today our enemies mid
down their arms in accordance with
an armistice which rendered them Im
potent to renew hostilities, and gave
to the world an assured opportunity
to reconstruct its shattered order and
to work oat In peace a new and Juster
set of international relations. The
soldiers and people of the European
allies had fought and endured for
more than four years to uphold the
barrier of civilization against the ag
gressions of armed forces. We our
selves had been in the conflict some
thing more than a year aad a half.
With splendid forget fulness of mere
personal eoncerna we remodeled our
industries, concentrated our financial
resources, increased our agricultural
output and assembled a great army,
so that at the last our power was s
decisive factor in the victory. We
were able to bring tbe vast resources,
material and moral, of a great and
free people, to tbe assistance of our
associates in Europe who had suf
fered and sacrificed without limit a
the cause for which we fought.
Opportunity for America.
"Out of this victory there arose now
possibilities of political freedom aad
economic concert. Tbe war showed ua
tbe strength of great nations acting
together for high purpoeea. aad the
victory of arms foretells tbe enduring
consequence which can bo made m
peace when nations act Justly arid in
furtherance of the common interests
of men. To us in America, ths reflec
tions of Armistice day will be fllljd
with solemn pride In tbe heroism of
those who died in tbe country's serv
ice, and with gratitude for the victory
both because the thing from which it
has freed us. and because of the' op
portunity tt has given America lo
show ber sympathy with peace and
justice In the councils of nations.
