Faces to the East! It is the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh monththe fifth returning of the moment when silence fell upon the guns and the cheers of victory replaced the clamor of conflict; when Joy came once more upon the earth; whet] hope, which springs eternal in the human breast, rose high; when personal loss was swal- lowed up in thanksgiving. It is a moment sacred beyond all telling. Let each good American interpret Its silence accord- ing to his experience and epacity, with a pr for better understanding. And may each recurring l'overaber 11 forever find the American people in reveYent silence with headi bared and faces to the East. May they In that sacred moment say, each to himself: "I will remember while the light lasts and in the darkness I shall not forget." At Arlington America's tribute to her "Un- known Soldier" will be paid by the highest officials of the government. Two years ago Pres- ident Harding's address was the feature of the elaborate burial services. Last year President Harding, accompanied by Secretaries Weeks and Denby of the "War and Navy departments, placed a wreath of red, white and blue blossoms on this national shrine. Then the president saluted and turned away. Not a word was spoken. " The silence was broken only by the clatter of the hoofs of the cavalry escort and the booming of distant guns in the national salute. This year another hand must place that wreath. And when America stands with bared head nd face to the East there will be remembrance of the kindly gentleman and true patriot, unspoiled by pride of place, who has "Gone West" to Join the boys "Over There." For Warren G. Harding was a good American and had understanding-- witness these words of his at Arlington, which should never be forgotten: "'We do not know the eminence of his birth, but we do know the glory of ls death. He died for his country, and greater devotion hath .no man titan this. He died unquestioning, uncom- )laining, with faith in his heart and hope on his lips, that his country should triumph and its civilization survive. As a typical soldier of this representative democracy, he fought and died, believing in the Indisputable Justice of his eoun- try's cause. "Sleeping In these hallowet grounds are thou- sands' of Americas who have given their blood for the baptism of freedom and its maintenance, armed exponents of the nathm's conscience. It 1.3 better and nobler for their deeds. Burial here is rather more than a sign of the government's favor; it is a suggestion of a tomb in the heart of the nation, sorrowing for its noble dead. "Today's ceremonies proclaim that the hero unknown is not unhonored. We gather him to the nation's breast, within the shadow of the Capitol, of the towering simft that honors Wash- ington, the great father, and of the exquisite monument to Lincoln, the martyred savior. Here the inspirations of yesterday and the conscience of. today forever unite to make the Republic worthy of his death for flag and country. "I speak not as a pacifist fearing war, but as one who loves Justice and hates war. I speak as one who believes the highest fUnction of govern- ment Is to give Its citizens the security Of Peace, the opportunity to achieve, and the pursuit of happiness. "As we return this poor clay to Its mother soil, garlanded by love and covered wlth the decorations that only nations can bestow, I can sense the prayers of our people, of all peoples, that this Armistice day shall mark the beginning of a new and lasting era of peace on earth, good will among men. Let me Join in that prayer. "'Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth, as It is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespuss against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, for Thine Is the kingdom, and the ower, and the glory, forever. Amen. ' And what of the intervening years since November 11, 19187 David Lloyd George puts Europe's condition thus : "Fifteen million picked meh killed, twenty million crippled for life, tens of billions of wealth, gathered through the centuries, squandered in a moment, commerce destroyed, nothing left except hate." But not so in America. We have no hate. Per contru, we have fed starving Europe without thought of payment or reward. And America emerges from the World war the wealthiest and most powerful nation of earth. Food for thought in the sacred moment of silence ! And what of Germany? It begins to look as If she were on her knees at last. Apparently--it is nt safe to put it more strongiythe truth has a last been forced upon the German conscious- hess that In the great four-year struggle which convulsed the world and impoverished it in life anc treasure Germany was decisively and con- clusively beaten. Never, until the official and public and unconditional abandonment of pe`.ive resistance in the Ruhp, has Germany given acknowledgment that the victory in the test of war was absolute. So 1923 sees a second surrender by Germany, of hardly less importance than that of Armistice day of 1918. Another thought for the moment of silence ! . November 11 at the eight American cemeteries in France, Belgium and England, thA'e remain the bodies of 30,363 soldiers, sailors and marines who gave their lives during the war. t each of these, from the Meuse-Argonne, Alsne-Marne, Suresnes, St. Mihiel, the Somme, OIs-Alsne in France, in Fianders field in Belgium and at Brookwood in England" appropriate services were held thoughout the day with American diplo- matic or military and naval officials 'paying tribute. November 11 is not the only "Armistice-day.  The year is full of days that are "Armistice days" In spirit. In June the disabled American veterans, through National Commander J. A. McFarland, placed a wreath on the tomb at Arlington. On the Fourth of July was unveiled in Paris a momment to the American volunteers who en- listed in the French army in 1914-15. The statue which surmounts the monument strikingly sug- gests Alan Seeger, the soldier poet who wrote that immortal poem "I Have a Rendezvous With De:th." In the spring at Seicheprey the First division, A. H. F., was honored by France by the dedica- tion ,f a monument, a photograph of which is reI):duc'ed herewith. The First division fought the l:,ttle of Seicheprey early in 1918. Gtm. Henri Gouraud, "Lion of the Argonne," who i-st his right arm in the service of his country, was a visitor here In July and placed wreaths upon the Arlington tomb. Another photograph shows the crosses, row on row, which mark the graves of American sol- diers In the national cemetery at Arlington. They died in France and were brought back by the Ameriom governvent. American kind,rgarten leaders, visiting Ameri- can kindergartens in France, decorated the grave of France's "Unknown Soldier" under the Are de Triomphe. Chateau Thterry recently unveiled monuments to the Americans who here gave their lives to block the German drive to Paris in 1918. Cantigny has erected an elaborate fountain as a memorial to the Americans of the First division who captured the town from the Germans in May, 1918.
