Now comes a Yank to Arlington
To join the nation's brave
Columbia's unknown soldier son
To join the brave in Arlington
With pomp of peace and show of war
And honor of a conqueror!
Three soldier dead, picked in the dark,
Unknown, unsung, without a mark
Genius or clod or knave,
We know their all they gave,
We know they died to save.

HE Spirit of Armistice Day I
Who shall Miy now what Is to he
the spirit of Armistice day?
SuroJy It Is too soon to .say. Thu
World war Is yet too close to us. The
World war Is not yet over. It will
not he over until the rawest of the
world's wounds are healed.
Only time can tell what Is to he
the spirit of Armistice day.
That Armistice day Is to he a new
American national holiday seems certain.
It will he neither a Washington's hlrthday nor n
Lincoln's hlrthday In memory of the Father and
of the Savior of the United States of America.
It will not he a Memorial day In memory of
the heroic (lend of our victorious wars.
It wllJ not ho n Fourth of July in memory of
he winning of our independence.
It will not he a Thanksgiving day devoted to
!he family reunion feast and thanksgiving to God
for His mercies and gifts.
And yet Armistice day shouhj he In n way n
combination of all of these American national
For when the World war ended In victory No
vember 11, li)18, America saved all that every
good American commemorates In the observance
of these natlonnl holidays.
Is Armistice day destined to he not only an In
ternational holiday hut the one greiit holiday of
(ill the world?
If the Washington conference on the limitation
of armaments brings about disarmament reason
able and effective disarmament the whole world,
victors and vanquished alike, may well celebrate
Armistice day.
If the Washington conference should mnko an
other great war Impossible and lead up to perma
nent, world-wide peace, all the nations of earth
will hnve to mark Armistice day as the one great
lny of all the military 4ilslory of the world.
An Internationalism that does not destroy na
tionalism has been the dream of the ages.
A world at pence, to stay at peace. . . .1
In this nutumn of 1021, In which falls the third
Anniversary of Armistice day, "tho outward and
visible sign of tho inward and spiritual grace"
which nnlmates the American breast Is trlbuto to
the heroic soldier dead In tho form of honors to
the "Unknown Dead."
Tho woild will not soon forget tho pomp and
circumstance with which Orcnt Hrltaln on tho
eecond anniversary of Armistice day laid to rest
"A British Warrior" In Westminster Abbey.
"Cnrry on!'"
Tho HtaRKerln? Ilrlton cried.

ored lier heroic dead by tanking her Arc de Trl

This year America uillrius her adherence to this
spirit of Armistice day.
The congress of the United States confers by
special acts Congressional Medals of Honor upon
the "ISrltlsh Warrior" and "Un Soldat Francals."
Atactica places these highest decorations within
tiie gift of the American people upon the tomb In
Westminster Abbey and upon the tomb beneath
the Triumph Arch. 1'iesldent Harding sends Gen.
John J. I'ershlng, the head of Iter army, to make
the bestowal and he sends an American composite
battalion of picked men as an escort worthy of
the occasion.
And Arlington, America's national cemetery
where lie historic dead, receives Its "Unknown
"Let' got"
Tho uaRcr Ynnlceu cried.
Did the Yank bo?
This tomb says "
The vision of this homo-coming of this "Un
known Yank" will forever be cherished by the
American "people.
The selection of Columbia's unknown soldier son
at Chalons, the bestowal of the Victoria Cross
and the decoration of tho Legion of Honor, his
Journey to Havre under escort of un lienor guard;
the French memorial observance at the seaport.
The cruiser Olympla's arrival at Washington

Impressive building In the world.

ices by army and navy chaplains; Interment In
front of the entrance of the nmplilihenter at a
spot which overlooks the city of Washington, with
Hie capltol and Washington's monument and the
Lincoln memorial In the distance.
The moving strains of the funeral march; the
roll of the drums; the mcnsiucd cadence of march
ing feet; the blowing of "Taps" by the buglers;
the volley by the tiring squad.
The Flag at half-mast throughout the nation.
The American people Implied In two minutes of
silent prayer.
This Spirit of Armistice day need alarm no lover
of peace. In thus honoring their "Unknown Dead"
America and Great I'.rltnin and France give form
and substance to their recognition of that democ
racy of service and sacrlllce which Is the founda
tion of society and the salvation of nations.
"Unknown Dead" U merely a symbol. In place
of "Unknown Dead" read "Man in the Iinnks the
common man who offered his all, did his duty and
gave his life for his country, unknown, unhonored
and unsung. No citation contains his name. No
decoration Is his. This Is the man who won the
war and It Is In his honor that the "Unknown
Dead" are Interred with the pomp and circum
stance of state display.
And the message Is quite as much to the living.
, This "Man of the Hanks" need never have reached
the llrlng line. He need never have got Into the
lighting ranks. Many a patriot who deserves well
of his country was rejected by tho recruiting
olllcer. The patriot man or woman who gave
his country the best he had shares In the honors
of Armistice day to the "Unknown Dead."
I wish to express to you and to congress and the
people of the United States the warm apprecia
tion felt throughout this country at the trlbuto
which you are paying to our unknown warrior.
Tho gift of your medal of honor to the HrltMi
comrade In arms, whose tomb In Westminster Ah.
bey stands for all our best endeavor null hardest
sacrlllce In war, Is a gesttire of friendly sympathy
and good will which we will not forget.
On Armistice day representatives of tho Hrlt
Ish empire In Washington will Join you In tlm
ceremony to be held to honor the splendid record
of your own troops. I greatly wish on that occa
slon to confer upon your unknown warrior our
highest decoration for valor tho Victoria Cross.
I also send my heartfelt good wishes to tho
great International conference which opens by
your Initiative upon that day. My ministers will,
I know, strive as wholeheartedly as yours to mnko
tho congress u sterling success. May they, In
common with yours, do all that practical states
manship can achieve to perpetuate tho comrade
ship of war In tho maintenance of peace.

Who cannot recall the coffee-pot Mother put
on the stove early in the morning, warning us
not to let it boil over?
As children, we were not permitted to drink
tea or coffee, because it would stunt our growth
or make ua nervous and irritable. When older,
however, we craved a hot drink with meals, and
custom gave us our tea or coffee.
Finally upon tha instructions of the doctor,
Mother gave up her tea and coffee. But that
meant nothing in our young lives. Our vitality
was then stTong enough to throw off any ill effects.
But our time came, and we learned by ex
perience that we could not drink tea or coffee.
When we had it for breakfast it put our nerves
on edge. When we drank it at tho evening meal,
we tossed about in wakefulness most of the night.
