THE SOUTH BEND NEWS-TlMEb WILSON SCORES RAGE PREJUDiGE IIS OHIIlICi President, Hailed as ''Man of Peace" by Philadelphia Audi ence, Tests Out Sentiment of Nation on Lusitania Affair. the be rillLAnKLIMUA, May 11. Trcst Wilson talkol "peace" Monday night in an address which was clearly de signed to test the- sent imt tit of nation regarding t ho action to taken on the Lusitania tragedy. His address, elelive red before 1.000 r.ewly naturaliz'-d citizens of the I'nited Mat' s eontain-d no r-f'r'norj wIiatfVfT to the tide; of anger which lias .-,tirrcel tho nation through tho lo-s f American lives on the ill fated liner. "Thrro is such a thing as being too proud to fight." said tho president. "A nation may ho so right that it dors not need to convince others by force that it is right. "Peace is tho healing and elevating influence of the world," continued the president. "Tlir Man of l'cacv." Tho keynote of tho aeldress con tained in these excerpts. Despite tho perioral expectation of that tho presi dent would grasp tho occasion to de lino the policy he would pursue re garding the Lusitania disaster- ho said, nothing except insofar as his laudation of peace may he construed to mean that ho will not allow the nation to be dragged Into war In any event. His address was roundly cheered and oni of tho "recently naturalized" of his audience broke, in upon him to hail him as "tho man of poao". Tho president smiled as tho cheers rolled in upon him and bo thanked the audi ence for the "sense of support" it had given him. The president excoriated hyphen ated Americans and thre who are attempting to stir up racial and sec tional antagonism in the Unite! States. "A man who goes among you to Irado upon your nationality is no wor thy son to live under the stars and stripes," he said. "fJewarc of the man who peeks to make personal capital out of the passions of his fellow men." An o firoup-i Here. The president declared that "Amer ica, does not consist of groups" and that no man who comes to the United Mates must think of himself as a member of n group or c la .. "You bring all countries with ou. but you come with a purpose of leav ing all countries hhimi ou," said the president. "I should not suirmst that any man should ctase to lo.e the country of his birth, but you cannot dedicate ejurself to America unless you become a therugh American." America was born, the president Maid, to help forward tho great enterprise.-? of the human spirit and to pro mote liberty and justice. The Amer ican citizen owed allegiance to no one, hi; added, unless it b (Joel. He emphasized the faet that the in. in who seeks to diide America into "jealous ramps" has no place in it; that the word "united" was not placed in the name of the nation for nothing. "If I have forgotten for what America is intended. I thank God if you will remind me." declared tho president. The 4.000 from the old world bab bling in a dozen tongues cve the president a wild reception. The had brought their wives and families each carrying a silken American l!ag. Their facts proclaimed their origin. There were bland. impassive faces from northern Kwrope; Uaxen hair and the stolid broadness from the middle lands and the sharp features of the south. Tho president spoke and walked like a tired man. There was none of the clear ringing tones that have characterized his speeches. Once in a while ho .smiled, hut his smile was wan and forced. The crowds noticed it .and it caused greater comment than did his speech. In the hetrrogeneous audion:e be fore him there were. Letts, Lithuan ians. Russians, Irish, Welsh, Scotch. Swedes, Italians and natives of every country of Kuropc. But noticeably .small was the German and Austrian clement. An hour before the (resident ar rived the hall was jammed by 15,000 persons who came he. ping to hear some hint of the tenor of the note he will send to Ilerlin. Hundreds who were barred from the hull bordered llroad st. and gave him their vocal support as he was hastened to and from railway station. No citizens applauded the man and not his words. Half of them could not hear him. Ills voice was weak and the hall is vast. He wa.s surrounded in and out of the hall by a score of Philadelphia detectives. The Philadelphia city troop escorted his audience. Once or twice he removed his hat tei the street crowd and most of the time he slumped back in the cushions like the tireel worried man he appeared to be. Y. M .C. A.

Theso names will also be published on tho date of their birthday, so we advise a careful watch kept on the dally an. nounccmcnts, as these children will receive two treats. The names of the lucky ones are taken at random and there will be absolutely no favoritism bhewn. The birthday party ticket entitles the holder to admission to the Or phoum. Majestic, LaSalle, Surprise and Colonial theater, alao a treat at the American drug store. Children living 10 or more blocks from tho oltlce will receive a return car ticket home.
