Example of Peace
Two Peoples Living Side By
Side Greatest Contribution
To World, Harding
Washington, June 9. President
Harding, delivering a commencement
address at. American university,
found the subject of world peace oc
cupying so prominent a place on the
program that he was prompted to
depart irom his manuscript and de
clare for the preservation of peace
by sovereign ttates, without inter
ference of a world "superpower."
The president's remarks followed
an address by N. W. Rowel!. K. C,
of Toronto, who suggested that the
best contribution North America
could make to civilization was "for
men on this side of the, water" to
itand together behind the movement
for peaceful settlement of disputes.
Another speaker who touched on
the question of peace was J. J.
Jusserand, the French ambassador,
and the general discussion developed
such a trend that Bishop J. W.
Hamilton, presiding chancellor, ie
ferred to the gathering as a "peace
' Before singing began, American,
British and French flags were
raised over the outdoor speakers'
' Tribute to Nations.
: "I do not think I could let this
."occasion pass," said the president,
.'"without giving assent to many of
-the appropriate and appealing things
.-just uttered by Dr. Rowel!. I liked !
this expression that American and
'Canadian ideals are in cdmmon and
.when he spoke about North Ameri
can contribution to civilization and
''to the world, it occurred to me that
the example of two great ' peoples
living side by side ih peace, in confi
: dence and in mutual understanding,
is about the finest contribution that
two nations could give to the world.
I have said that if all the na
tions were as honest and unselfish
. as our republic, there never would
be another war, I will revise it and
say that if all the nations are as un
selfish and devoted to their' ideals as
' the United States and Canada, there
never will be another war.
"I call attention to the fact that
the United States and Canada have
: settled their controversies satisfac
torily without resort to a super
power but by the exercise rf the
sovereignty of free peoples dealing
with one another. If we can com
mit civilized ' humanity to a abiding
righteousness and everlasting and
inspire them with our example, we
. will have made a long striae to
ward the peace the world craves."
, Urges Stability.
With that Mr. Harding plunged
into hi nrenared address, in which
he enjoined all graduates to dedicate
themselves to restoring stability in a
x world where "almost nothing" re
mains secure from the attacks of
In introducing the French ambas
sador. Bishop Hamilton declared that
the American and French armies
were plighted at Yorktowrr in a
"marriage bond" which actually was
sealed years later in Flanders.
"The bishop has referred to York
town," said M. Jusserand, in begin
ning his speech, "and well he may.
The three flags above us represent
.the three nations of Yorktown; one
of them in those days on the wrong
side, but on the right side now. Those
three flags are different in their ar
rangement of colors, but heaven be
praised, they are blessed with the
same colors, the red and white and

Metal Workers Score At
tempts Being Made to Re
duce Standards by Using
Denver, June 9. Demand that
steps be staken to halt the alleged
exploitation of female labor by un
scrupulous employers was made to
day in a declaration presented for
consideration before the convention
here of metal trades of the depart
ment o fthe Federation of Labor.
Several other issues confronting
the metal trade's, also were to be
discussed at today's session.
.The declaration .asserted that
there is no objection to the employ
ment of female labor, but there must
be insistence that the women work
ers will receive at least the same
consideration and as good conditions
as enjoyed by male labor.
"Female labor during the war
period," it was stated, "received a
primitive knowledge of how to per
form certain lines of work and op
erate certain classes of machinery.
The employers are now taking ad
vantage of this limited training by
reducing the standard as to wages
and conditions of employment, first
because of the almost total lack of
organization among women and,
second, because of the great unem
ployment existing throughout the
country which makes female labor
an exceptionally easy prey for the
unfair and unscrupulous employer."
The department had before it an
official report stating that the follow
ing ship yards have been closed with
little or no prospect of reopening
now or in the future: Alexandria
