(By the Associated Press.) Stand

The- audience, composed mainly of
ihioans who had Journeyed here to
celebrate the centennial of Grant's

declared the "sacrifice and nation

Mr. Harding spoke from a stand im

was born. Mrs. Harding, Mrs. Fred
Urant and many other distinguished
people prominent in the official life

praise bestowed on their leader by
Country Nation's Hope.
In the absence of Governor Davis,
who was ill. Judge Hugh Nichols,
i-hairman of the centennial commit
tee, introduced the president.
Before beginning his prepared ad
dress Mr. Harding expressed his
pleasure, at coming to a village like

that of today. "I would rather have
ome to a spot like this," he said
than to any other inrthe- republic

The trip of the president and his
party to Point Pleasant on the gov
ernment tug Cayuga was made
through a continuous ovation from
".-ns of thousands of people who
hied the Ohio river on both the Ken

chief executive and Mrs. Harding

acclaim from the thousands who lined
Cincinnati streets through which the
president passed in welcoming him
back to his native state.
Mr. Harding and his party returned
to Cincinnati immediately after his

Times-Star, at dinner before leaving
on their return journey to Washing

Such Hen Needed Now.
"I sometimes wonder," the presi
dent said, "if the magnanimity of
Urant, the dogged, persistent, un
alterable Grant in warfare the un
conditional surrender Grant would
not be helpful in the world today.
The great world struggle, which we
might reasonably designate the
civil war of western civilization, and
in which we so creditably and help
lully participated, left peoples and
nations prostrate, hardly knowing
which way to turn for restoration.
1 cannot help but believe that some
'.hing of the spirit with which Grant
welcomed ( victory, something of his
eagerness to return to peaceful ways,
would have speeded the restoration
and hastened the return to prosper
ity and happiness without which
there can be no abiding peace."
Mr. Harding paid tribute to Grant
as "the military hero of the republic,
a commanding figure in the military
history of the world."
"It is 67 years since Grant gar
landed victory with magnanimity. It
is 37 years since he laid down the
wearied autobiographer's pen and
made his one and only surrender:
His fame is secure. The republic has
not forgotten and will not forget.
"What of the republic Itself? It
will not be unseemly to say that
American example and American con
ception of justice and liberty since
then have influenced the world little
iess significantly than Grant's serv
ice to the union shaped the course
of our land.
Civilisation Rein Secure.
"A score of new republics have un
furled their flags and democracy has
opened new avenues of liberty and
mads justice more secure. Civiliza
tion meanwhile has made such ad
vances that there has seemed a divin
ity pointing the way. And yet that
very civilization, more advancing
than entrenched, was threatened by
the world war and in war's aftermath
established order has been assaulted
and revolution has threatened
throughout the world.
"In our own land the enemies within
have been more threatening than
those without. Greed and anarchy
have menaced. But calm survey
gives every reassurance. Twenty cen
turies of modern civilization could
not have been builded on foundations
which are false. A century and a
half of gratifying American achieve
ment dates from the sacrifices of the
founding father, and their firm
atxvLcture was reserved by the pa
triots wham Grant commanded, and
will be held secure by the patriotic
citizenship of the republic today and
the grateful Americana of the tomor
row." Declaring at the outset that he had
pondered over the attributes of the
character of Grant, the president said
the union leader "looms majestic in
the blend of them all his fame is

The massive bronze memorial to Gen
