Speaking before a plenary session which brought to a close negotiation begun 1- weeks ago at his invitation, he declared that the record o. achieve ment voiced in courageous tones the first deliberate and effective effort of grer\t powers “in the consciousness of peace, of war’s utter futility.” Before him lay, newly signed, the treaties by which tjie world predomin ant nations engaged to limit thoir navies to guarantee a squara deal for China and to set u.» an international concord to keep the pcaco in the. Pa cific. "It matters little." he said, “what we appraise as the outstanding accom plishments. "Any one of them alono would have justified the conference. But the whole achievement has so cleared the atmosphere that it will seem like breathing tho refreshing air of a new, morn of promise. "It may ho that tho naval holiday .here contracted will expire with the treaty but l do not so believe. Those of us who live another decade aro morn likely to witness a growth of public opinion strengthened by tho new experience which will make nations moro concerned with living to tho ful fillment of God's high Intent than with a genius of warfaro and destruc tion. [ “Since this conference of nations has pointed with unanimity to the wny| of peace today, like conferences in the .future under appropriate conditions I and with aims well conserved and do- j fined, may illuminate tlie highways' and by ways of humane activity. The j torches of understanding have been, .lighted and they ought to plow andi encircle the globe." | ] The president delivered his message I an soon as the formal signing of the i treaties had been concluded, and when J he finished the conference closed as j it opened November 12 with prayer.
