Magnolia St. Next Club 1,05iSds Spoken to the American People Thru the Medium of the Stars and Stripes (Associated Press) Washington, May 27. Woodrow Wilson today broke the silence he has maintained since he retired from the White House on March 4th. In a Memorial Day letter to the edi tor of "The Stars and Stripes," which was published today in that soldier periodical, he declared that the Amer ican people "shall dot be able to en joy the full pride of the day's recol lections until we have made sure that the duties that grew out of the way have been fulfilled to the utmost." "Are weure?" he asked. "If we are not shall we not soon take steps to do whatever has been omitted?" The full text of the former presi dent's letter 'follows: "Memorial Day has always been one of our most solemn and thought ful anniversaries when we recalled great memories and dedicated our selves again to the maintenance and purification of the nation, but this year it has an added and tremendous significance because the memories and sacrifices of the great world are now among the most stimulating of the recollections of the day. "We celebrate the immortal achieve ments of the men who died in France on the field, and in the trenches, far away from home, in order that both our own people and the peoples across the seas might be delivered from the ugliest peril of all history. It is our privilege not only to indulge a high and solemn pride and grief for the heroes of that great struggle but also to rededicate, ourselves to the achievement of the great objects for which the war was fought. We shall not be happy; we shall not be able to enjoy the full pride of the day's rec ollections until we have made sure that the duties of the day's recollec tions until we have made sure that the duties that grew out of the war have been fulfilled to the utmost. "Are .we sure ? If we are not shall we not soon take steps to do what ever has been omitted? i "Cordially yours, "Woodrow Wilson."

President Harding in a Memorial Day message to the American Legion, made public Thursday, expressed hope that the future years would bring less need for national sac rifices. The message is as follows: "Americans have been much given to the establishment of holi days and fete days. Perhaps our national life has been so shorty and entirely so matter of fact and practical a period of the world's history that we have been little moved by the sentiments that such occasions inspire. Yet, I think no nation has ever established a national day of consecration that represented a more lofty and en nobling sentiment than does our national Memorial Day. To its observance we have brought the full measure of sincere reverence and gratitude that a great people is ever to entertain for those who have made the sacrifice in its behalf. "Memorial Day marks our recognition of those who, from our national beginnings, have deserved the most that the nation could give of gratitude and appreciation. It reminds us that in every generation, from Lexington to the Argonne, our valorous sons have well deserved the highest tribute that a nation fortified, de fended, preserved, could give to them. Whenever the demand has come, and wherever it may have called the sons of our proud land, it has always been answered. Though we have never been a mili tant or war loving people, here has been no time when Americans did not rise to the full measure of the requirement which national honor and national safety imposed upon them. When national safety was the cause, the response was always insistent and decis ive. When civilization summoned, and our sons were called to other seas and skies and soils, we saw the same promptness, the same zeal, the same devotion. "On this Memorial Day of 1921, we stand, I trust, very close, to peace achieved, to safety insured. May it be our common aim and purpose that, in the coming years, our nation's aim and policy shall be directed to make certain that there shall be least need for fur ther sacrifices, greatest guarantees of the stability, and perma nence and the inspiring character of those institutions of liberty to ft- W Of fit--. iit: 5' iZ: (it: (it: !'it- 5 which our nation has been dedicated." it CLOSING HOURS OF THE OPTOMETRY CONVENTION What was unanimously acclaimed the "star" of all conventions came tn close yesterday afternoon.

ATTENTION, EASTERN STARS All members of the Eastern Star business firms who will close Monday, Memorial Day, several names were join in the parade to Victory Way, where the unveiling ceremonies will take place at 5:30 o'clock. Mrs. Julie Weihe, Associate Matron. Yesterday in setting up the list of business firms who will colse Monday, Memorial Day, severla names were unintentionally omitted. The corrected list, with several additions, is printed elsewhere in today's paper. The Presbyterians have had a com modious platform, surrounded with a neat railing and an improvised pulpit erected on the west side of their church and it is the intention of Rev. Creson and his congregation to meet there Sundays evenings through the sum mer for oDen air services. The idea is a splendid one and no doubt will be followed by other churches. Mr. and . Mrs. Chas. Seton Hardee are enjoying a honeymoon trip in Mi ami and are very much infatuated with the east coast. In the article about Mr. and Mrs. Hardee's wedding there was an unintentional mistake about Mr. Hardee's grandfather.
