IWashington, 'March 20.-President
'HArding combined an errand of pnercy
With first hand study of one of his ad
niinistrative problems today .by spend
ing moj'o than two hour% among 'the
wounded soldiers at Wh'ter Reed hos
Accomrpanied by Mfrs. Harding and
Dr. C. . Sawyer, his personal pihyal
clan wbOim he has charged with an In
vestigation of the igeneral problem of
publIc 'health and *social welfare, the
president lo6ked through the wards
and entertainment -rooms of the hos
kital, greeting scores of the patients
and asking them iw'hat could be done
to make them more comfortable.
-In a short talk from the front steps
of the administration 'building, he told
in a-;semblage of patients and nurse
that he wanted to sce a government
)olley that should fully recognize what
the soldiers of the great war gave to
their country, and later at the Red
Cross hut he iade a speech ,)raising
the services of 'women In the winning,
of the war.
Trhe (luestion of proper hospital fa
cilitles and medical attention for
wounded soldiers Is one which has
beuen much in 'Nlr. Harding' mind since
his election and during today's visit
he asked about muany detal1la of hos
p1 :it a hunistration. Among other
things he studied, the vocational train
ing system for the wounmded, -and Mrs.
Harding brmight away as a souvenir
of the vocational plant a hammered
Wlver jewel case ma'de and presented
by her by Private Joseph YurkRunski.
To all of the wounded men Iwith
whom they taThed the president and
Mrs. Harding extended the hosilptal
Ity of the White House, suggesting
that those from Ohlo 'a'rra'n'ge to vome
In a body soon to c'ail on them.
I In his talk from the hospital steps,
Mr. llardin'g reealled the example of
a Confederate war veteran he had
known, who despite the IoEW of both
arms aind one leg 'always kept talking
cheerfully of the future and of the
opportunities It might bring.
"I offer to you men," continued Mr.
llat'ding, "That samo compensation.
Look forward aways. to the morrow.
I am erry the Imrden has come so
hard t you hut you may be sur'e the
government never will be iunmin-dful
of you and your condition."
At..the Red Cross hut the presidenti
de(l-Ired the work of women in the
!Nr and the aftermath of war ranked
as the greatest. service ever rendered
by the sex to humanity.
"1e greatets thing women 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 yoii i know it is
the tribute that has been in the hearts
of the mon in the armed forces who
felt that you ministered unto them as
only angles of Good Almighty could
