"Deeply happy as I am at the pros pects of loining my own countrymen again I leave France with genuine regret, my deep sympathy for her peo. pie and belief in her future confirm ed, my thoughts enlarged by the priv ilege of association with her public men, conscious of more than one af fectionate friendship formed, and profoundly grateful for unstinted hos pitality and for countless kindnesses which have made me feel welcome and at home.

PEACE MESSAGE PLEA ON LEAGUE WASHINGTON, June 28.— Presi dent Wilson in an address bo the American people on the occasion of the signing of the peace treaty made a plea for the acceptance of the treaty and tho covenant of tho Heague of Na tions without change or reservation. His message given out here by Sec retary Tumulty said: "My fellow country men: The treaty of peace has been signed. If it is ratihed and acted upon in full and sincere execution of its terms, it will furnish the charter for a new or der of affairs in tho world. It is a se vere treaty in the duties and penal ties it imposes upon Germany, but It is severe only because wrongs done by Germany are to bo righted and re paired; it imposes nothing that Ger many cannot do: and she can regain her rightful standing In tho world by prompt and honorabl* fulltillnicnt of its terms. "And it is much more than a treaty of peace with Germany. It liberates great peoples who have never before been able to find the way to liberty. It ends once for all an old and in tolerable order under which small groups of selfish men could use the peoples of great empires to serve their ambitions for power and dominion. It associates the free government of the world in a permanient league in which they are pledged to use their united power to maintain peace by maintaining right and justice. It makes international law a reality sup ported by imperative sanctions. "It docs away with the right of con quest and rejects the policy of an nexation and substitutes a new order under which backward nations—popu lations which have not yet come to political consciousness and peoples who are ready for independence but not yet quite prepared to dispense with protection and guidance—shall no more subjected to domination and exploitation of a stronger nation, but shall be put under the friendly direc tion and afford the helpful assistance of government which undertakes to (Continued on page 3) P.
