tltoii It. Parket, or New Vork, was
the iTinolpal h|M>ak< r at ihe Washlng
tou Birthday celebration at ihe I'nl
versiiy of Virginia today.
Mr. Parker's theme was the life and
ehiirac ei of Washington
Mr Parkft stld;
Judge Parker a raigned the lendem y
hi our government in recent times, a.
he said, to gel away from the conservj
Msin" i Wasblngi isi. He said in
stead of I oking upon so. ie of Wash?
ington's policlc. as "antiquated",
the) wom!,| be peculiarly betiellcial
and applicable to prewnl conditions

and ihen, and sonnded ;! note <>i warn

.It dge Parker sai l:
"II he: of late been too gr atly ihe
practice io excuse departure from

so greatly varied In Ihe past hundred
yen.-, cr ii: re. In reason of '.hie i.
known a.s modem progress, that '
wisd m ot th se who preceded i.- hit
the lolly of today."
Referring to Wasnington'a concep
i Ion of the scope of tho o.Tlcor of
President of a Republic the speaker
said:
"That the citizen so elected is a
person to whom j-- A legated the trust
of administering the executive g"\
ernmenl of this country and nothing
oiheir or beyond is a fact which sn uId
.it all times be presenl in the thought
<>: all our citizens,''
S,leaking or the maintenance ot
great military establishments In free
governments. Judge Parker .said:
' Inauspicious he cuil? them 10 lib?
erty; hostile be find* th m to repub?
lican forms cf government in every
paritcul-ir, and it Is in the ability
thereby attained lo avoid standing
armies and great navies lint Wash?
ington deems the I'nion to be one Ot
the gi, at factors making for iir lib
city. "
In regard to the importance of pre?
serving the Constitution, he sild:
"At all limes there are in his
world men whose mentality is such
that they do not appreciate the value
in Itselj the society in which they
dwell ef settled conditions: who he
' lieve that tin- attainment <>r a par?
ticular good Tor an Individual, or a
pan of the community <>r the whole
oomanunity, outweighs any possible
diMiger to a-rise to every individual
member of tin- community, from a
setting asli.e of what we call e :\ ii
tionai methods. Such men arrogaie
IO themselves .1 prescience which
may b- justified, but their claim
wbetetj we must in the ligh of his
tory 100k upon with reaerte."
