WILL NOT FORGET
MEN IN SERVICE
President Speks to Former Soldiers,
Will 1elp Imsabled.
Atlantic City, N. J., Sept, 11.-~A
message to foinmer service men was
delivered here .today by President
:Harding during his Sabbath activ
ities at the ocean side which included
attendance at church, an address to
veterans of the Fifth Division, A. E.
FP., and an hour's stroll among the
After attending the Chelsea Bap
tist church with !Mrs. 'Harding and
his other guests, the president found
several hundred Fifth division vet
erans assembled in front of his beach
front hotel when he returned. Stand
ing on a chair, the presidetn urged
that former service men aid in soly
ing .the problems of ipeace as they
have those of war.
"There is nothing too good In
America for its veteran defenders"
said .the president. " All America is
proud of what you and your division
did at the Mouse. All America is
proud of what our soldiers (lid in
the critical (lays of the war."
Apparently referring to the soldier
bonus legislation, President Harding
declared that the nation would spare
no efforts to care for its wounded
and its disabled defenders.
"The man who came back wounded
and impaired in ability to carry on
the vocation of his life deserves the
fullest aid in our 'power to give, ana
I propose to use all influence I have
to see that he gets it," he said. "But
I am not so much concerned nwith
those who came out of the war un
impairied. They have the comipen*
sation. of supreme service and ex
perience. You may be disappointed
with matters of legislation, but I
want you to know that we are inter
ested in Xour welfare.
"I am not unmindful of the job
you did over there. I am not un
mindful of the service you rendered
to the country under your fiormer
commander, and I ask that you will
render me the same faithful service
during the years I am in office. There
Is still greater service to be rendered
in establishing national lines of
peace. It is up to you to help solve
the problem that has been thrust up
on us by the enemy from within.
"I want this to continue as an
America of opportunity and as an
America of grateful alppreciation."
At 5 o'clock this afternoon, despite
a light drizzle, President Harding
tramped a mile on the boardwalk and
'was given enthusiastic receptions.
With difficulty he waded through
crowds which pressed from all sidies.
Ho shook hands with hundreds, most
ly children, was bombarded with flow
ers and finally the crush became so
great he was forced into a side street.
Tonight the president and Mrs.
Harding were the guests at dinner of
Mr. and Mrs. Alexander P. Moore, of
The president may end his vacation
here tomorrow and motor along the
coast and pick up the Mayflower for
his return to Washington.
