Client nf the Pennsylvania Society of
r.ew loik who dined In iho piand ball
room of the Waldorf last nlaht In honor
of France and her Ambassador, Jean
Adrlcn Antolne Jules Jusseranil.
Words of affection for France and of
America's opportunity to repay Itn on- j
ligation to the lami of Tarayette were
pokeii by Theodore Rnoie-elt, Senator
Henry Calmt Id;e, James V. Ocrarl
nd the chairman, James M. Beck. Ite
Plylnz, M. Juhnerand said:
"So lnnu as we live, ro long as ther
la a France, all the Inhabitants of her
"Oil tylll keep engraved In their hearts
the date 1517, when America decided
ti come In and help win the day for
Iluosrtrlt m War'. Oa.trl.
Col, rtonievell was wildly applauded I
fien he said It was not sufficient for
A'-iorlc.i to make war upon Ueniany I
and Austria: we must fight all of "Her
man) 'n vassal allies," Including Bulgaria
and Turkey: We must sec that France
gets back Alsace and Lorraine; we must
arc that all the enslaved peoples are
made free the Hungarians, the Italians
of Austria, 'the Poles, the Bohemians
and the rest. Ills speoch amounted to a
statement of 'his conception of the only
possible terms of jieace.
A sentence that stood out In Senator
Lodge's address was, "There must .be no
truce and no bargaining." He said
"there is no hope for a final settlement
except In physical guarantees won on
the field of battle." The words of both
Col. Koosevelt and Mr. lodge were -on-trued
hy somo of their heurers as a re
ply to the recent moderate utterance of
Ixrd Tensilon lie.
What with the presence In balcony
boxes of 300 members of the PennsjI
vanla Women' Society, who had a din
ner of their own In another part nf the
hotel and then went to the ballroom to
hear the spenklng, and of about 1,000
men crowding corridors and ante room
as well as the banquet hall. It was the
Pennsylvania Society's biggest annual
dinner. In the centre of the big room
hung a service llag with 217 stars for
members and sons of members. Noted
portraits of Washington, Lafayette and
Franklin were framed with greenery
nd white chrysanthemums above the
apealccis' table.
Col. Roosevelt said that France has
"saved the poul of the world." Thank
l"g heaven "that at last we stand shoul-di-r
to shoulder with France as 140
years ago In hour of dark trial the fore
fathers of the French of to-day stood
oulder to shoulder with our own fore
fathers." he phrased the spirit of the
gathering. And to help France and their
Hies most effectively, he said, the
United States must make war upon all
their enemies'.
nnlsarla and Turker ..
"It Is both absurd and mlTChievous."
he continued, "to be at war with Ger
many and yet not at war with Ger
many's vassal allies, for It Is these
vassal allies who make Germany a men
ace to civilization. Austria, Bulgaria
nd Turkey stand on a par. 'We can
net do our full duty In the war unless
we make war on all. It Is empty un
wisdom to clve verbal encouragement
to Rumania and Serbia unless we go to
war with Bulgaria. It is worse than
folly to profess sympathy for Armenia
unless we make war on Turkey.
"Belgium must be restored and In
demnified and France must have back
Alsace and Iorralne. or else we shall
not secure the kind of peace which alone
ought to end this war.
"Austrla-Hunaary and Turkey are
not nations. They are racial tyrannies
by certain national castes which In each
rase represent only a minority of the
total population. Neither democracy nor
civilization Is safe while these two
fittf exist In their present form, and
when we nie at war with them It Is on
our part culpable weakness as regards
ourselves and betrayal of the rights of
others not So flKht for the complete In
dependence of the oppressed nationalities
In each.
"Turkey should be driven from Europe :
the Armenian and Syrian Christians
and Jews and Arabs should all he freed.!
"France embodies all of loveliness and
an or vaior; oeauiy is ncr iihiiuihhiuvu
and strength her shield bearer: and the.
shining courage of htr daughters tiea (
matched the courage of her dauntless,
sons. For three and a half terrHsl year .
she has walked high of heart through
the valley of the shadow. Her body ls
In torture, but her forehead Is alight i
with the beauty of the morning. Never I
In all history has there been such stead-
fast loyalty In the doing of denaeroue
duty, such devotion to country, such
splendor of sen Ice and of sacrifice. And (
great shall be her reward : ror ens nw
saved the soul of the world."
Cot, Roosevelt, who was Introduced
with the words, "Hata off, gentlemen--a
man the bravest of the brave," made
Ambassador Jusseriind and everybody
else laugh by telling this story :
"In Washington he used to go on
walking trips with me. One day we
came Ut the Potomac and decided to
swim It. We took our clothes off ami
were leady to plunge In when soma ona
In the party, cried :
"'.Mr. Ambassador, Mr, Ambassador,
you have your gloves oil !'
" 'yes, 1 know,' said the Ambassador;
'I thought wee might meet ladles.' "
The Colonel said that M. Jusserand
was not only a great diplomat and lit
erary man "hut he Is also a dead game
sp'oi t."
Halls France a a Victor.
In his Introductoty address Mr. Beck
declared that "all the nowens of Prus
slanisni and holl" will not prevail against
"that sacred union so finely character
ized by our President as a partnership
of the democratic nations."
Mr. Beck then Introduced' Ambassador
Jusserand. for whom flags waved and
voices cheered for several minutes. M.
Jusserand said tliat to his mind the two
tasks of serving France and America
were the same. He reviewed the early
davs of the war and told of France's
awakenlnir to the fact that the kind of
warfaie practised by the Germans, was
due to no mere passing fit of madness.
"They take pride." he said, "In the
false assumption that they are the mod
ern Huns. The Huns would not be flat
tered, for they knew something elaa than
force and perfidy, and were sometimes
accessible to sentiment. No, to meet j
ineir equals we inuai so iu ii.mw-
val times, when erode mankind worj
shipped force and nothing else. The Ufa
formula of primeval man was a brief
one of three words, 'Might Is right.' "
Flaloary by. Seaatar LKe.
Senator Lodge paid a tribute to M.
Juaserand's conduct as Ambassador; he
had walked without stumbling a path
broken by pitfalls. .
"Most of all do we honor him." the
Senator said, "In that high character
In which lie would prefer above all
ethers to be honored, as the repre
sntatlve of his beloved country, as the
Ambassador of France."
He credited France at the battle of
the Marne with saving not only Eu
lope but the New World "from Ger
iran domination and fa Id that our debt
to France now far surpasses the ob
ligation we Incurred when France Joined
us In the Revolution.
"To agree to restore the status quo
ante," Senator Lodge concluded, "would
simply be to give Germany a breathing
sp.ice 'n which she may prepare to renew
the war at a later day. Her word Is
worthless; treaties are to her Govern
ment but scraps of paper: there is no
hope of final settlement except In phys
ical guarantees won on the Held of bat
tle. Therefore we must fight on aa
France has fought, to a complete vic
tory, so complete that for many genera
tions to come Germany will be unable
again to let loose her horrors and her
barbarities upon an unoffending world.
"I give you. Vive la Franca!"
Mr. Gerard said that Ambassador
Jusserand ' has acted during the pain
ful years of our neutrality with a tact
ay exquisitely balanced as the scales
which weigh the thousandth of a mil
ligram." Mr. Beck prfsented to Ambassador
Jusserand a gold medal of the Pennsyl
vania Society "for distinguished ser
vice." Others at the speakers' table
