-London, May 19.-The American am
t1assador, George Illarvey, in his first
Ileech since presenting his creden
tials, declared tonight thdt Amflerlcan
armed forces came to !Eurci.le in .the
World War ;olcly to save the United

Mr. larvey's address, which was de
livered at a dinner given by the i
gz'im -Society in his honor, attracted
especial interest, coming as it did at a
time whcai the probable attitude of the
Ulnl:d States toward the tense polit
ieal situation in lEurope is arousing
lively speculation, and as the first au
thorized expression of the American
Mr. Harvey paid tribute to the PIl.
grims as the most distinctive link in
the chain of blood relationship be
tween the British and American peo
1fie and on of the most potent agen
ces of olvilization. Their activities,
h1 said, had been a sustained labor of
love and patrotism which only now
i'ere beginnin; to fructify in an ear

part of both peoples to blow away
*mists of in isconstruction and misun
derstanding, which far too long had

The outstanding attri.butes of Presi
dent Harding, Mr. Harvey said, are
breadth of vision, greatness of heart,
fidt'lity to his race no less than to his
clan, and no more to his family thin
to his ancestry, drawn from all parts
of the United Kingdom. Mr. Ilarvey
declared these were sufficient indica
toiis and reasons why Mr. Harding
felt in the very fibre of his being at
this crucial period that friendliness
and good will should exist always be
tween the peoples of the great Inglish
speaking nations and why he now.
1pledges unfaltering co-operation in
achieving that aspiration.
Nothing could be more futile, more
ddlusive and more mischevious, le
said, to pretend that the Americans'
1proffer of a helping hand was attrib
ttable primarily to "a tender suscep
"it is not," Mr. Harv'ey declared,
"M1y country stands re-ady to work
with yours, because, first: it is to our
own interest to do so; and secondly:
because it is to tie advantage of both.
"We deceive ourselves occasionally.
Even to this day at rare intervals an
ebtllient sophomore seeks applause by
shouting that 'we won the wa'.'
Far more prevalent unltil recently
was the impression that we Iwent to
walr to rescue humanity from all
kinds of melnacing perils.
"Not a few remail convinced that
we sent our young soldiers acro.- to
save this kingdomi, France and Italy.
That is not a fact. \,e sent. themi
solely to save tihe (United States~ of
Amerien, andl mlost reiuctanitly and
laggardly at that.
"We were not too proutd tq flight,
whatever' that may mean. We' were
not afraid to fight. That is the real
truth of the matter. So, we came
along toward thle end andl helped you
.andl your allies to shorten the war.
Th-at is all weo dlid and that is all we
claim1 to have (lone."
D~iscussing what he called the "sen
tient pecrilous present" Amnbassador
"For years I hrave heard it pro
claImed that war *hetwceen Great
Britain and Amierica had ceased to
be conceivabie. * * * No resuncl~tion of
ar'medl conflict is unimaginable. Any
(lay may witness a reneveal of the
Wqr' of tile hlosen, any (lay the clash
of the .Blue and tihe (Gray in the
swamps of Vir'ginia.
"lBut so unlikely are suclh happen~
ings that the suggestion, even though
it incr'edibly were made, would evoke
no more than a dletisive smile. But it
is onie thing to stamp) constantly upon
an absurd notion, and another tihing to
never think of it at all.
'Woaw the qiuestion rises, have not
.our' countries roeaced a point with re
spect to the remotest possib~ility of a
conflict thlat justifies our' forigetting it
as completely as the battles of Bios

faded from our recollection?

X, SAYS HARVEY
ffully in the teeth of -all the mischief
makers and scandal mongers of both
nations, has become the settled con
Viction of our people, and I 1ho)e and
doubt not, of yours.
S"Ikicause the President has exem
pIlifcd his avowal of obligations, it
must not be inferred that he pr!))oses
to becole an international meddler,"
continued the ambassador. "Ie would
be the last to intervene or be drawn
nlto ally llatter of no concern to his
own country, Lut also no one realizes
more clearly than he that the United
States is, of necessity, deeply interest
ed in proper economic adjustments and
the just settlement of matters of world
wide importance under discussion and
desires helpfully to coc;Oeate."
"There still scems to linger in the
minds of many here the impression
that in some way or other, by hook
or crook, unwittingly, iurely, unrwil
lingly, America may yet be guilde(d in
to the League of Nations. Let me show
you how utterly absurd such a notion
"I need not recall the long contest
waged between tile two .branches of
our government over this proposal. I
need hardly mention that the conflict
became so sharp that even the treaty
went by the board, to the end that to
day, paradoxically enough, Amerlr:
continues to be technically at war, bu
actually at peace, while Europe is
nomina'lly at peace, but according to
all reports, is not wholly free from the
cl'ash of arms.
"Finally, the question of America's
participation in -the League came be
fore tile )ecile, wo decided by a ma
jority of seven millions.
"It follows, then, that the present
government could not, without -be
traya..pf its . creators and masters,
and wil'l not, I can assure you, have
anything w-hatsoever to do with the
League or any commission or commit
tee appointed by it or responsible to
it directly or indirectly, opeily or
