Egypt cries to America to guard well
her distinctive and democratic Ideals,
casting out or shutting out all who
would impair them. America was con
stituted as a protest against class and
caste; whatever savors of either, at top
or at bottom, should be thrown anew,
like a bad casting in the foundry, into
he furnace of democracy.
It would be treason to far more than
our own history for America to become
in any degree or kind an imitation of
Europe or Asia's outworn systems. If I
were to stand on the top of this great
Pyramid and make an address to the
schools of all America it would not deal
with the Interesting theme of Egypt,
old and new, but rather with the su
preme importance ef drilling into the
innermost consciousness of every boy

spirit of our America her history, her
constitution, her personalities, her

and all the etrange providences that
have made her today the moat power

antiphonally to gangs of cavorting
coolies. Eminent citizens from car
riages and motors saluted the throngs
with it, to receive the same words in
mighty response. Men with Egyptian
flags beat time while crowds took up
the refrain.
Occasionally the one chorus was va
ried by cheers for America and for
Mr. Wilson and for France and for
Saad Zaglul and for the peace confer

The women did more than shout for
Egypt, for liberty, for Zaglul. for
America, for Mr. Wilson, for France
and for the peace conference. Inces
santly they leaned out of their vehicles
and started the antlphonal yelling of
the crowds. Sometimes they stood up
and made patriotic speeches, ever being
greeted with "Vive la Femme!" This cry
became part of the common chorus of
the crowd.
This was emancipation day for Egyp

speeches is no longer noteworthy; but
this is the east, the home of the harem,
the land of the veil; where it Is not
