I HARDING DECLARES I U. S. CANNOT JOIN I ALLIANCES IN ARMS Nor Can Its Nationality, lie , Says, Be Submerged by World Sovereignty. YOUKTOW.W Va.. Oct. 19. Presi dent and Mrs. Ilnrdlnp were truest ol honor to-day nt the celebrations marking the 140th nnnlvcrsary of the surrender of Lord Cornwallls to the Colonials under Washington and La fayette. Jllr. HardlnK'H address, the feature of the day's programme, wlls AoWv rcd within slEht of the spot where Cornwallls laid down his sword In 1781. Tho President declared In de liberately chosen words a sentiment of peaceful relationship between the two great EnRllsh-speaklns nations for all time to conic. That either houkl ever apaln lift tho sword against the other, ho said, must be "unthinkable." In the trusteeship of preserving civilization," he continued, "wo were naturally arrayed together, and the convictions of a civilization worthy of that costly preservation will exalt ponco and warn against conflict for All time to como." in tho courso of Ills prepared ad drcsB, tho President took occasion to renew the Nation's pledgo of parrlcl- - patlon In tho broader affairs of tho world and declared his belief that tho time had como for "essential co-operation" among nations generally tor ' tho betterment of tho world. "We must not claim for tho New World," said Mr. Harding, "certainly not for our colonies alone, all the liberal thought of a century and n half ago. There were llberul views and attending sympathy in England and a passionate devotion to more liberal tendencies in France. Tho tri umph of freedom In tho American Colonies greatly strengthened liberal views In the Old World. Inevitably this liberal public opinion, deliberate and grown dominant, brought Great Britain and America to a policy of accommodation nnd pacific adjust ment for all our dlffereneua, Thcie has been honorable and unbroken peace for moro than a century; wo came to common scarlflce auil ensan guined association in tho World War, and a future breach of our peaceful and friendly relations is unthink able. ?Our thoughts havo lately been If as- concerned with thoso events which mado history on the scale of a world, rr.thcr than of a oont'nent. Yet the lesson Is tho same. It l.i tho lesson f tnnl InlnrilptMMlilnnpp ntllonir tllO nations which lead civilization. "Ilcflecting to-ciov on mo incvi lableness of our participation, on our ties of kinship, friendship and fellow ship, and appraising anew tho way tlm wnrlil-flnit'M cood world must share the aspirations to realize tin noblest Ideals for mankind, there Is a fresh hungering for understanding, a new cull for cn-ope ratlnn. a clear con victlon of purposes and devotions anil loyalties not limited to sovereignties nor national boundaries. "Shall mankind, then, go on yet for generations, for centuries, know in.? but refusing to be guided by lhe.se truths?

No programme which seeks to submerge nationality will sitceecd. This repub lic will never surrender so priceless a heritage, will never destroy the soul which Impelled our gratifying attainments. In the sober circum spection, retrospection and Introspec tion of these crucial times we do be lieve there Is sanity nnd urgent neeil in bringing the best thought of all great peoples Into understanding and co-operative endeavor which shuns the alliances In arms and strengthens the conconis ot peace, no loai eacn mav realize Its rightful destiny nnd contribute Its utmost to human ad vancement nnd attending human hap piness." AN EDUCATIONAL CRISIS SEEN NOW BY THE PRESIDENT Lack of Teachers and Public School Facilities Confronts the Nation. WILLTAMSlU'ilCl, Oct. 13. Arriv ing here, Mr. Harding -proceeded to William and Mary College, whero he spoke to the students and guests. At the outset ho declared that the Na tion confronts an "educational cri sis" through lack or teachers nnd public school facilities. Ho appealed for patriotic support of an educa tional system commensurate with na tional resources. "I wlh it were possible," said tho President, "lo drive homo to the wholo American peop' tho conviction (.1 needed concern for our educational necessities. We must havo moro and better teachers, and to get them tho profession must bo compensated as It deserves." "It Is no exaggeration," said Presi dent Harding, "to say that the Nation confronts an educational crisis, Krom every corner of the land, from coun try, town nnd city, comes the snmo report that the housing capacity for our public schools Is Inadeuuate; that tens of thousands of pupils havo no place for their studies; that teachers cannot be listed In sulllclent number h and Hint school revunues are IiimiIII clout. "Let me hasten to add that tills Is not a condition which leads us to pessimism or misgivings. I would not wish It to bo otherwise. No peo ple ever approached tho lavishncss with which, fiom public revenue and prlvalv puise, Americans havo given (o support education, yet the more generously we provide to. day tho greater Is the deficiency to-morrow; and I am glad It Is thus. So long as the eagerness for -ducatlon outruns our most generous provision of facili ties there will be assurance that wo are going ahead, not backward. "So long as I llnd that the. pro portion of public revenue properly de voted to education Is Increasing, I de sire to bn counted among thoso In public llfn ready and nntlous lo slrugglo with the problem of raising the necessary revenues. "I nm not sure that our young ieo. pie are living up to that full estimate of an education's worth. I doubt If there Is n much of plain living and high thinking In nendemle shades as thero was once, or might well be now. I can not prescribe the cure, but much of the unrest of tho world to-day Is chargeable to our living too rapidly nnd too extravagantly, nnd colleges have seen the reflex of It."
