Washington, Nov. 10. President Wilson, General Pershing and Secre tary Baker today issue! statements to the American people on .the 'occa sion of the first anniversary, of the signing" of the armistice. ; . The president said to Americans the reflections of Armistice Day would be filled with solemn pride in hero ism of those who died in the country's service and with gratitude for the victory both because of "the thing from which it has freed us, and be cause of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and Justice in the councils of the nations." The exercise by the American peo ple of practical patriotism during the war, General Pershing said, was an avowal of their firm adherence 'to the principles of free government that will continue to have great influence upon the progressive thought throughout the world. v Secretary Baker said that while mourning its dead, the nation was grateful for their achievement and for that of their living brothers and that "in the name of both we may hope for an early accomplishment of the terms of peace that shall complete their work upon the battle fields of France." President Wilson's message follows: To my Fellow-countrymen: A year ago today our enemies laid down their arms in accordance with an armistice which rendered them Im potent to renew hostilities, and gave to the world an assured opportunity to reconstruct its shattered order and to work out in peace a new and juster set of international relations. The sol diers and people of the European al lies had fought and endured for more than four years to uphold the barrier of civilization against the aggressions of armed force. We ourselves had been in the conflict something more than a year and a half. With splen did forgetfulness of mere personal concerns we remodeled our industries, concentrated our financial resources, Increased our agricultural output, and assembled a great army, so that at the last our power was a decisive factor - in the victory. We were able to bring the vast resources, material and moral, of a great and free people to the assistance of our associates In Europe who had suffered and sacri ficed without limit in the cause foe which we fought. Out of this victory there arose new possibilities of political freedom and economic concert. The war showed us the strength of great nations acting together for high purposes, and the victory of arms foretells the enduring conquests which can be made in peace when nations act justly and in fur therance of the common Interests of men. To us in America, : the reflec tions of Armistice Day will be filled with eolemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country's ser vice, and with gratitude for the vic tory both because of the thing from which it has freed us, and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and Justice in the councils of nations. WOODROW WILSON. The White House, 11 November. 1919. ' A year ago on the western front shins were warmly wrapped in putts.
