Philadelphia, July 4.-Advocating

table on which the declaration of in
dependence was signed, he declared
Americans today must manage their
affairs in a way to do honor to the
founders of the nation. There are
men in' Washington today, he de
clared, whose patriotism is not
shown but who accomplish great pa
triotic things. They are staying in .
Washington, doing their duty, keeping

Eighty five per cent, of the Mexican
people, the president said in touch

were running it.
"NoW the American people liavc a
heart that beats for them just a's lt

continued. "I hear, a great deal -about

marines and sailors stood before the

"The declaration of independence,"
said the president in the course of his
address, "does not mean anything to

unless we can apepnd to it a similar
ly specific body of particulars is to
what we consider our liberty to con

Patriotism, he said, consists of some

the president enumerated the stay of

"Now the truth always matches the

they are trying to do. Aro they try

trying to serve something smaller
than the country? Are they trying to
put hope into the hearts of men who
work and toil every day, or rallier are
putting discouragement and de-pair

duty to put their hands to the task
