Washington—Laid to rest with all the honors a grateful nation: could pay, America's Unknown Hero from France was bivouaced ampng the gal lant dead in Arlington National ceme tery. The highest officers of the army and navy walked beside his coffin none but the hands of gallant comrades of the great war laid hands upon it. President Harding walked behind bier to do him homage Former President Wilson made his first public appear ance in months General J. J. Persh ing turned aside an opportunity to ride and trudged beside the body to the last resting place. Representatives of foreign govern ments reverently laid their highest military decorations on his. casket, and with soil from France where he fell unknown, he was laid away. Minute guns at Fort Myer boomed their continuous tribute as the funer al procession was passing from the capitol to the great marble amphi theater in Arlington, where the cere monies were opened with the playing of "The Star Spangled Banner" by the Marine band. Harding Pleads for Peace. The commanding voice, of the world was summoned to a crusade against armed warfare by President Harding as he stood at the bier of America's unknown dead. "His sacrifice and that of the mil lions dead, shall not be in vain," the president promised in a solemn vow that rang out over the silent mourn ers in the vast amphitheater. "There must be—there shallHbe— the commanding voice of a conscious civilization against warfare." President Harding addressed his measured words directly at the arma ment delegates who sat grouped in front of him. His declaration, uttered on the eve of, the great conference, carried significance.

Bending reverently over the casket, the president, with the vast audience joining softly, offered up the Lord's prayer as he closed his address. "I Hate War," Says President. "I speak not as a pacifist fearing war, but as one who loves justice and hates \var."4Harding declared in voic ing ^iis resolution that civilization must make a supreme effort to end war for all time. "Let us give of our influence and strength, yea, of our aspirations and convictions, to put mankind on a little higher plane, exulting and exalting, with war's distressing and depressing tragedies barred from the stage of righteous civilization," he pleaded. With vivid strokes, President Hard ing painted the spectacular rain of death he witnessed during a modern battle demonstrated at Camp Den ning, shrieking over his head and tra cer bullets flew past in deadly concen tration. Speech Moves Many to Tears. "As this panorama of unutterable destruction visualized the horrors of modern conflict, there grew on me the sense of the failure of a civilization which can leave its problems to such cruel arbitrament," he continued. "Surely no one in authority with hu man attributes and full appraisal of the patriotic loyalty of his country men could ask the manhood of king dom, empire or republic to make such a sacrilice until all reason had failed, until appeal to justice through under standing had been denied, until every effort of love and consideration for fellow men had been exhausted, until freedom itself and inviolate honor had been threatened." Passages of melting tenderness for the Unknown Dead "that moved many in the audience to tears were woven into President Harding's attack on the God of Wvar. For the Unknown Hero a people stood at pause a little apace, the rush and tumult of a nation's hurrying life stilled in reverence. Rome General Strike Ends.
