i", ,, ( iiiii Sketch of President Warren G. ilarding&apos;s Life Warren Gamaliei Harding, twenty- IDAuth pre61dent of the United States was born November 2, 1865, on his grdfather's farm Just outside the village of Blooming Grove, in Morrow ounty, Ohio. He was descended from two pioneer American families, hardy Holland Dutch on the one side and lib- .... Grty4ving Scotch on the other. HIS father, Dr. George T. Harding, is still practicing physic]an In Marion, O., desDlte his advanced age of seven- ty-l years. HIS mother was Phoebe ]Jabeth Dlckerson Herding. Mr. Harding was a self-made man in the best sense of the phrase. He worked on his grandfather's farm and attended the village school until he fourteen years old, and then he mtered the Ohio Central college at Iberia. He worked his way through that institution hy cutting corn, paint. tag his neighbort barns and helping on'the grading of the roadbed of the T. & O. (I. railroad. He also played in the village band and was edltor of the tlege paper. When he graduated from the eel- m, Warren went to work in the vil- lage printing office. At the time he warn nineteen yesra old, his father tovLo Mario with the family and thet aided Warren financially in gain. control of the Marion Star, of Which he was publisher until after he td the ofllce of prerAdent of the United BUttes. Already he knew how to Bet fYpe and to do all the Other dties of a printer, and when the lino- introdo00 he learned to ate that machine. Always he car- lied as a. pocket piece the printer's rnle he sled in those days. The Star was his idol and he was very proud of it and of the more than friendly relations that existed be- tween him and his employees. There never a Itrtke on the paper, and i about f::'.:"'->:= y:c.r. :go he instituted It profit-sharing plall whereby the em- Ifl0yees receiv divhlends that were - paid them in the form of stock in the paper.

He was a member of the Ohio serrate from 1900 to 1904. and then serVed as lieutenant governor bf the ltltte. In 1910 he was the Republican moraines for governor, but was defeat- ed. I 1915 he was sent to the United Rtttes senate, serving until 1920, when to make the campaign for Presidency.

The outstanding accomplishment of his adminlstration was the great inter- national conference for the limitation of armament held in Washington, open- Ing on Armistice day, November 11, 1921. At his instigation the confer- ence was authorized by congress and a.fter feeling out the big powers and finding them agreeable he ls16l Invi- tations to Great Brltain France, Bel- glum, Italy, Japan, China, the Neth- erlands and Portugal Each country sent ome of its most eminent states- men as delegates, those of the United States being Secretary of State Hughes, chairman of the conference; Senators lodge of Massachusetts and Underwood of Alabama, and ex-Secre- tary of State Ellhu Root. he e6nference adjourned February 6, 1922, after negotiating these treaties : A covenant of limitation to navel armament between the United States, Great Britain, France, Japan and Italy. A treaty betweeu the same powers as to the use of submarines and nox- iou# gases in warfare. A treaty between the United States, Great Britain, France and Japan re- lating to thei insular possessions and their insular dominions in the Pacific, with a declaration reserving American rights in mandated territory. A treaty between the nine pewera in [;,e coilci'fuce i'eialing [0 prluclples and polk, les to be followed In matters eolleerulng China. A treaty between the nine powers relating to Chhiese customs tariff. Be- cause France refused to conshler the limitation of land armament at the Dresent time, that part of the confer- ence fell. through. But what it did achieve was considered a great step toward the attainment of world peace. "le treaties were soon ratified by the United States senate and the British parliament, and thether nations fol- lowed suit. though for a long time it was feared France would not accept the pacts. However, President Hard- Ing lived to see them ratified by the French chamber and senate. Favored Entering World Court. Mr, llarding had not been long in the White House before it appeared that he did not favor entire isolation of the United States from Europeav affairs, but believed this country would have to do Its part In the res- toration of Europe to peace and sta- bility. This feeling became more eel- dent early in 1923 when he proposed that America should accept member- ship in the International Court of Jus. t'ce which had been founded under the auspices of the League of Nations. The President was as insistent as ever that this country should keep out of the league, but believed the court was or would be Independent of the greater organization. Against the advice of some leaders of his party, he reiterated this advice on several occasions, and his plan formed the subject of some of his addresses on his last and fatal trip through the West. He did uot think it would split his party, anti boldly continued to advocate it. Not- withstanding this, it was assumed to more eager even than the President to meet and mix with all kind of people. HIs Western Trip. President Harding's Alaska trip was originally planned for the summer of 1922. He inherited the so-cled M. Warren G. Hardin "Alaska problem." Alaska seemed to be on the down grud with decrease In population and mining output, threat- ened extinction of the fishing industry and numerous other unfavorable symptoms. he situation apparently called for the establishment of & defi- nite Alaskan policy. Varinu plt were dlscutmed, Including a transfer of control to the Interior department from the score or more of governing bureaus. President Harding's planJ for. 1922 came to aughL but thls year he determined to get firt-hand infor- mation. He was accompahled by See- retary Work of the Interior depart- ment, Secretary Wallace of the Agri- cultural department and Secretary Hoover of the Department of Com- merce, all of whom are immediately concerned in the Alaskan sltuatlon. The President let Washington at the end of June and Journeyed leisure. ly to the Pacific Northwest by special train, making speeches at St. Louf, Denver, Helena, Spokane and other cities. Incidentally he visited two of the national parks. First. he went to Zion in Utah, the newest of our na- tional parks, which is a many-colored gorge cut by the Rio Virgin. N'ext he visited Yellowstone In Wyoming, cre- ated in 1872. the first national park In history and largest and most famous of the nineteen parks of our system. Here he motored, boated, fished, fed the bears and had a ggod time. His plans also included a visit to Yosemite upon his return trip, but that was abandoned. Saw Much- of Alaska. The President celebrated the Fourth of July in the United States and then started for Alaska on the U. S. trans- port Henderson. His Alaskan trip was extens!ve. He went the length of the new government railroad and visited the capital, Juneau. and the principal cities. On his return trip Mr. Harding stopped off at Vancouver, creating precedent in that he was the first Amerlcap President to step on Cans. dlan soil. The President arrived at Seattle July 27 and reviewed from the bridg of the Henderson a fleet of a dozen or so battleships under command of Ad- miral H. P. Jones, each of which gave him the national salute of twenty-one guns. Even then he was ,suffering from the ailment that resulted in his death, and soon after that the rest of his trip, which was to Include a return to the East via the Panama canal, wtm cancelled. President Harding made a public ad- dress at Seattle, setting forth his views on the Alaskan situation. Soma of his points were these: "Alaska for Alaskans." "There is no need of gov,'lb managed, federally-paid-for hotmu development there must be ne reckless sacrificing'of resources." "Alaska Is destined for statehod In a few years." "Vehere there is possibility of t,tt. meat in federal machinery of admin- istration, improvement should and will he effected." Other conclusions presented by Preo- ldent Harding were: . That generous apprnpriatlen be made for road building. That the federal government should be tore liberal In encouraging the technical, scientific and demonstration work In agriculture. That restrictions should be laid on the fisheries and on the forests. That the development of the coal mines must await time and economic conditions. That the government should retain ownership and operation of the Alms- ken railroad. traders In Europe and Gustavus Adol- phus persuaded a number of Amster- dash merchants to settle/In Gothen- btr, where they were given special Priylleges. So much, indeed, was the element it was ordered the the should kept Swedish canals, the far as foreign elements go, retains more traces of Its early British set- tiers than it does of the Dutch.

Iowa's veterans who received the bonus are, contrary to expecta- tion of some persons, placing the money in savings accounts, using it for the payment of debts and for the extension of business. It had beeu free- ly predicted by a certain element un- favorable to payment of such compen- tmtion that the money would be squan- dered In reckless fashion. ewspaper reports from all sections of the state o the receipt of ttte hal they expected to do with the money. Iowa business houses have conduct- ed wlde advertlsin campaigns, sug- gesting to the fortn6r soldiers uses that might be made of the compensatloh money. According to word from vari- ous parts of the state, the savings banks profited most from this cane paiga Earl Brownile, a= American Legion membe of Davenport Ia who received the first warrant, put it In a savings bank to draw interest. Harlem Wyatt of Des Molnee. first to receive a check In that cry, told reporters that his check wee going to make the last pay- ment on a little home. Another vet- eran said that his plumber was wait- ing in his business place for the check when It came by pest. Still another **vet," appreciative of how he obtained the money, sald to reporters: "Five dol- lars of my check goes to Join the American Legion and the rest to the bank." Interesting facts in regard to the payment f compensation in the state were developed. More than 150 appll- cations in the state were not signed by the soldiers because they were unable to write. Instead. the finger-print method was used. When the warrants were cahed the finger-prlnts were on the bcks of the checks. Two hundred and fifty nurses will receive checks for service In the World war. A tmdeney on the part of Iowa vet- erans to take advantage of the insur- ance offered by the government is noted by American legion officials. A survey of records of one post showed about 50 per cent of the men receivlnff compensation reinstat.ed their govern- ment Insurance. Nearly $150,000 in polieles was reinstated in one day, ac- cording to officials of this post. The Iowa law allows 50 cent8 per day, with a maximum of $350. All claims of conscientious objectors have been set aside nntil after all other men have received their pay, when their claims will be considered. PROUD OF LEGION'S EMBLEM AffllKI Ex-8rvlce Man Tails of Com- rduhlp Displayed by Indiana World Warriors. The irit of comradeship among for- mer soldiers of the United States Is deepened, rather than diminished by time, according to evidences of friend- ly aid and help for veterans temporar- ily in need. This Is particularly true among organizations composed of World war fighters, such as the Ameri- can Legion. Many striking examples of this com- radeship come to the attention of ha. lionel officers of the organization. A splendid example was noted in a recent letter to Legion officials concerning frlen.dly act  an Indiana post toward sick bomid Written by EL I.. Rogers, a veteran of Battery F_ Fifth field artillery, the letter tells how he was taken sick as he passed through Lebanon, Ind., with his d.fe. After reaching a hotel there Rogers was told that he was threat- ened with pneumonia, and his limited resources were a source of worry. 'hat afternoon," Rogers' letter says, "the adjutant of the local pest of the American Legion came to the hotel and made me feel I was among friends, promising that my comfort would be looked cut for. The next morning I awoke to see a bouquet of carnations tn mY room. In the afternoon the post commander came to see me, and in him I met another fine fellow. "I we sick for a week. Although food wasn't much it left me broke, and weff the finance officer made me ad- mit it he brought a $10 bill for meals When I was strong enough to walk about I decided to go to Chicago. The American Legion gave me car fare. the adjutant guaranteed my hotel bill and a member of the pt took ua to the train id his car. "What do you think of a bunch o! fellows like that'/ Do yo think the would be Just as regular sports if the weren't Legion men? I confess I don'i know, but I think these buddies haw caught the one big idea of the foundert of the American Legion. . . . "In conclusion, let me say that ] have learned what the emblem of tht Legion stands for. that I take increasec pride in being permitted to wear it and the& as time goes on. I hope ms gratitude never lessens to the 'greater friend of the ex-buddy.'" Record for Attendance. Until Jack Cans a resident of De tolt, moved from that city, he huni up what he claims is a record for at. tendance at post meetings of th American Legion. Cann was dis charged in late 1919, and "Joined up' with the Legion on his arrival In De ire]t, becoming a member of tht Charles A.
