The intervening century has brought our country power and high place.

We need all the inspiration and faith which fired his glowing soul of pa triotism. No generation of men has ever come into the world to find its path smoothed, rto find its problems solved for it in advance. Solution is the fit price we pay for our great in heritance oi liberty and opportunity.” The President, whose address dedi cating the bronze figure of "the spirit of music” as a memorial to Key .form ed the theme for the nation'.- obser vance of Flag Day. paid high tribute to the author, declaring that “to give ringing voice to -uch a conviction, to such an aspiration, wo- one of the greatest service.-- which any man could do for the young republic.” A -prinkle of rain fell as the Presi dent began speaking, and he told his auditors to turn to -belter if they felt it necessary, adding: “I’m a Baptist myself.” The people cheered and stuck, and the President thanked them for his welcome as he proceeded to read his manu'seript. Before the ceremonies, with Mrs. Harding, he visited and talked with -i veral -core- of wounded war vet eran-. Mr-.
