Wilson Pleads For Renewal of Faith in Future Respond* to Demon stration in Hi? Honor. The text of Woodrow Wilson's , address yesterday at the dem onstration fn his honor at his S street home fo'lows. "Mr. Morganthau, Lodies and Gentlemen: I am very f much moved bjr this wonderful exhibi tion of your friendship and ap | proval and I have been reflect ing all day that Armistice Day i has a particular significance for the United States, because the Unted States haa remained con tented with the armistice and has moved forward to peace. "It is a very serious reflection that the United States, the great originative nation, should re main contented with a negation, for armistice is a negation. "It is a standstill of arma. that is all it is. It is a cessation of fighting. Dot we are ao content on a cessation of fighting that we are even throwing our arms away. Blames Partisan Sesatm. "It Is a singular circumstance, to which "Mr. Morgenthau has in part adverted, that while we preacribed the conditiona of the armistice, we will not concur In the establishment of permanent peace. That, of coarse, was brought about by a group In the United States Senate who pre- j ferred personal and partisan mo tives to the honor of their coun try and the peace of the world.

Hut peace is a very positive and constructive thing, as the world stands nowadays, because it was brought ab^ut by the sys tematic maintenance of commoif understanding and cultivation, not of amiable phrases and hopes, but the active co-opera tlon for justice: and Justice Is a greater thing than any kifid of expediency.

The text of Mr. Wilson s letter to Senator Caraway follows: "My Dear Senator: "It makes me very proud that you and other generous friends should attribute the results of Tuesday in some measure to the people's thought of me. and I am truly grateful to you for your own generous expression of confidence and approval.
