PRESIDENT PREACHES PEACE i
Detroit, Mich., July 10. Pres. Wil
son today answered Col. Roosevelt's
spirit of militancy with a message of
peace. Speaking to 3,000 people

dent said that fighting results in,

velt's "call to arms" two months ago
today rocked the hall with cheers for
"We must respect the sovereignty
of Mexico," the president said at one
time. "I say this for the benefit of
those who wish to butt in. Mexico

to possess her. This is due to the
manner in which somehave tried to .
exploit her possessions. I will not
help these men."
The first thing the president re
ceived upon arising this morning was .
a message from Henry Ford. It read:
"My hat is off to the man who has
kept this country out of war and will
continue to do so." i
