rope. He said:
"I regret that the policies which I
believed to be essential for tho wel

American people have not been more
faithfully carried out. But that is
passed In this crisis. At the moment
the United States faces a crisis which
has involved in war all the great na
tions of the world.
"We have our troubles hero, but let
us be thankful that we are citizens
of this Republic, and that our bur
dens. though far lighter than those
that must be borne by the men and
women who live in other countries. I
for one will act throughout this cri
sis as an American citizen, and will
work hand in hand with any public
servant with any kind and all private
citizens who in good faith do all that
Is possible to see that the United
States comes through unharmed and
so conducts herself as to conserve the
honor and the Interests of her own
citizens."
