ton Where the Principal Exercises Were Held.
Hundreds Spend Day at Resorts.
With simple and solemn exercises at Arlington and the cemeteries about the cit',
all Washington is today celebrating Memorial Day.
As has been the custom for two score years the memorial exercises centered about
the National Cemetery, where President Wilson made the principal address. Veterans
of three wars gathered there before noon tod a, after a brief march through the city
streets, to honor the nation's dead. One hundred and twenty-six survivors of the civil
struggle of fifty years ago stood with bared heads about the graves of their comrades,
while those of another generation decorated the mounds. Later they marched to the
amphitheater, where the principal exercises were held.
At the other burying grounds throughout the city, gray-haired veterans are paying
tribute to departed friends and brothers in arms, with the decoration of all warriors
graves. All of these places those who hold sacred the decidcation of the day to the

President Makes
Peace With G. A. R.
President Wilson made his peace today with the
Grand Armv veterans. Deciding at the last moment to
leverse his decision not to attend the Memorial Day exer
cises at the Arlington National Cemetery, he not only at
tended, but made an address.
In a speech devoted to a eulogy of the veterans and
the part which they played in preserving the Union, he
nought to salve the wound which his ill-timed refusal to
participate in the exercises had opened.
It was a trying ordeal for all taking part in the cere
ironies, for in the list of orators for the day were veterans
who a few hours before had been planning to criticise the
President for what they regarded as his slight of the Grand
Army. All passed ofi, however, as though nothing had
occurred to mar the preparation for the services.
