ACCEPTS MANDATE OF PEOPLE Electoral Vote Construed as Directing Continued Policy of Non-lnvoiVfN ment in World Affair*—Tariff Readjustment. Washington, March 4.—President Harding inaugural address, delivered today, was substantially us follows: My Countrymen—VVlien one surveys the world about him after the great storm, noting Hie marks of demiucuon and yel rejoicing in the uggeth.esa of the Liunga Winch withstood ii, it lie is an American ne breathes Hie cl.irilieJ a..mosyliere wni. a strange mingling of regiui and new ope we have Pc-«.n a worid of passion spend Its fury, but we conienipiaie Our .cpubilr unshaken, ana hoio our civiliza tion secure Liberty—liberty within iwe law—and civilization are inseparable, ana though botli were threatened, we tint .iiUiii now secuie and uir«i°e conies to Americans Hie profound u^suraiKe iha. ur representative government is the highest expression and surest guaranty of both. n .inB in ihts presence, mindful of the solemnity of this occasion, feeling the :inotious winch no one may know ^n i .e sei.ses the great weight of responsibil ty for himself, 1 must utter my be.ief in the divine inspiration of the found.n^ aiiiera suieiy inere must have been God's intern in the making of this new world republic. Ours is an organic law wh.ch had but one ambiguity and we saw that effaced in a baptism ol sacrifice and blood, with union maintained, the nation supreme and its oiu oi Inspiring. We have seen the world rivet its hopeful gaze on the great truths on which the found ry v\ roi.^m. We have seen civil, human fcnd religious liberty verified and glorified. In the beginning, the world scoffed at our experiment, today our foundations of po litic al and social belief stand unshaken, a precious inheritance to ourselves, an in spiring example of freedom and civiliza tion to all mankind. Let us express re newed and strengthened devotion, in grateful reverence lor the immortal be ginning. and utter our confidence in the supreme fulfillment. No Entanglement With Old World. The recorded progress of our republic, materially and spiritually, in Itself proves the wisdom of the inherited policy of non involvement in old world affairs. Confi dent or our anility to work out our own destiny, and Jealously guarding our right to do to, we seek no part in directing the destinies or' the old world. We do not mean to be entangled. We will accept no responsibility except as our own con science and judgment, in each Instance, may determine. Our eyes never will be blind to a developing menace, our ears never deaf tc. the call of civilization. We recog nize the new order of the worid. with the closer contacts whicn progress has wrought.

Since freedom Impelled, and independ ence inspired, and nationality exalted, a world super-government is contrary to everything we cherish, and can have no sanction by our republic. This is not selfishness, it is sanctity. It is not alootness, it is security. It is not suspicion of others, it is patriotic adherence to the things which made us what we are. We have come to a new realization of our place in the world and a new apprai sal of our nation by the world. The un selfishness of these United States is a thing proven. Our devotion to peace for ourselves and for the world is well estab lished. Our concern for preserved civili zation has had Its impassioned and heroic expression. There was no American fail ure to resist the attempted reversion of civilization. There will be no failure to day or tomorrow. Declares Nation Has Spoken. The success of our popular government rests wholly upon the correct interpreta tion of the deliberate, intelligent, depend able popular will of America. In a delib erate questioning of a suggested change of national policy, where internatlonality was to supersede nai onality, we turned to a referendum of the American people There was ample discussion, and there Is a republic mandate in manifest under standing. America is ready to encourage, eager to Irv e anxious to participate in any seemly program likely to lessen the prob ability of war and promote that brother hood of mankind which must be Goi's highest conception of human relationship. We aspire to a high place in the moral leadership of civilization and we hold a maintained America, the proven republic, the unshaken temple of representative democracy, to be not only an inspiration and example, but the highest agency of strengthening good will and promoting accord on both continents. Mankind needs a world-wide benediction of understanding. It is needed among in llvld uals, among peoples, among govern »pnts, and it will Inaugurate an era of good feeling to mark the birth of a new order. United States as an Object Lesson. We must understand the ties of trade bind nations In closest intimacy, and none may receive except as he gives. In the new order of finance and trade we mean to promote enlarged activities and seek expanded confidence. Perhaps we can make no more helpful contribution by example than a republic 's rapacity to emerge from the wreckage of war.

Tariff Readjustment. It has been proved again and again that we cannot, while throwing our mar kets open to the world, maintain Ameri can standards of living and opportunity and hold our industrial eminence in such unequal competition Today, as never be fore, when peoples are seeking trade restoration and expansion, we must ad Just our tariffs to the new order. We seek participation In the world's ex changes. because therein lies our way to widened influence and the triumphs of peace.

Com mon welfare is the goal of our national endeavor. Wealth is not inimical to welfare. It ought to be its friendliest agency. There never can be equality o reward? or possessions so long as the human plan contains varied talents and differing degrees of industry and thrift, but ours ought to be a country frt from erreat blotches of distressed poverty. We ought to find a way to guard against the perils and penalties of unemployment. We want an Amer ica of homes, illumined with hope and happiness, where mothers, freed from the necessity for long hours of toil be yond their own doors, may preside as betits the hearthstone of American citi senshlp. Solemn Pledge to the People. Service is the supreme commitment of life. I would rejoice to acclaim the era of the Golden Rule and crown it with the autocracy of service. I pledge an administration wherein all the agen cies of government are called to serve and ever promote an understanding of government purely as an expression of the popular will. One cannot stand in this presence and he unmindful of the tremendous responsibility. The world upheaval has added heavily to our ta ,ks, but with the realization comes the surge of high resolve, and there Is reassur ance in belief in the God-given destiny of our republic. If I felt that there is to be sole responsibility in the exec utive for the America of tomorrow. 1 should shrink from the burden. But here are a hundred millions, with com mon concern and shared responsibility, answerable to God and country. The republic summons them to their duty and I invite co-operation. 1 acctpt my part with single mlnded ness of purpose and humility of spirit and implore the favor and guidance of God In His Heaven. With these I am unafraid, and confidently face the fu ture.
