President Tells American Peo
ple That Solemn Pride Fills
His Reflections of Armistice
No. 2 Continued on Page 2.
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.
