Nation. However, Must Be Ready

ot Chief Executive.
WASHINGTON, D. C. Aug. !1.
Tanned and hardened by three
weeks' training at Camp Mead. Md.,
1000 citizen soldiers, most of them
still in their teens, staged a review
today on the historical White House
ellipse which President Harding de
clared gave him new assurance, new
confidence and new belief in the
perpetuity of the American republic.
This opinion, voiced Dy the chief
executive in a brief extemporaneous
xldres-s after the youths had passed
in almost faultless formation,
brought with it similar expressions
of commendation from grizzled and
veteran army chiefs, among them
General Pershing, as well as Sec
retary Weeks, other members cf
the cabinet and members cf tnej
house r.nd senate who stood in the j
reviewing line with the president.
Harding Applauds Soldier.).
Returning to the White House,
the president delayed plunging again
into consideration of governmental
affairs to review again the kha!;l
clad contingent, divided into infan
try, artillery and cavalry units, as
it swung by on its return to camp.
Mr. Harding viewed both appear
ances, applauding frequently as de
tachments filed by.
It was said to be the president's
purpose in addressing the troops
to convey through them his message
to the 27,000 other students in scat
tered army camps. He declared that
It he could have his wish the 28,000
would he increased, "until more than
100,000 were annually studying and
preparing for armed service."
Such training as the young men
yere receiving, he added, was not
given with the expectation that they
would io called upon for military
His address follows: '
"I could not allow the opportunity
to pass without a word of felicita
tion and congratulation. You have
afforded us this morning, those who
were in review and those who car
ried on the review, a most impres
sive and reassuring spectacle. Tou
are citizens of a republic wholly
devoted to peace. There is not a
thought in America of armed war
fare. There is not a design on the
part of your country to carry on
an armed campaign in any direction.
"We are concerned only with
peace and the security of peace,
and I like to think that this great
republic, reducing its regular army
in accordance with its ideals, can
have the assurance that comes to
it with such, a spectacle as you have
given us this morning. I congratu
late you with all my heart.
Benefit of Training;. Seen.
"It is a fine thing for the young
manhood of America to turn from
the ordinary engagements of the
vacation season to a study of mili
tary service and training for serv
ice. I am not sure, however, but
you have profited quite as well as
your country. If my eye testified !
correctly, you have benefited from I
the physical training, which always I
means a higher state of American i
manhood. You have benefited by j
learning discipline. You have bene- j
fited as all America might well I
benefit by learning a little more I
impressively the obligations of the
citizen to his country. It is a rather j
interesting thing modern science l
has learned that the ills of the
nervous and mental being may j
largely be cured by the development :
of the physical being, and 1 think 1
that you have not only had a whole- ,
some time, but that you are all re- '
turning to your normal pursuits j
better equipped for the tasks of '
life. " j

"You will be interested to know
that the volunteer citizens' training
movement last year enlisted about
11,000 recruits. This year there
were 2S.O0O of you in the various
camps. If I could have my wish
this number would increase until
more than 100,000 were annually
studying and preparing for armed
service, not that we ever expect to ',
be called upon for auch service, but
solely for national defense and the
preservation of the government
under which we all live.

BAR LE DUC. France, Aug. 21.
(By the Associated Press.) France
is firmly determined to make Ger
many pay for the devastation she
caused in the 'war, and rather than
depart from this fixed intention, she
will act alone. Premier Poincare de
clared at the opening meeting of the
general council of the- department
of the Meuse today. In a speech gen
erally regarded as the complete of
ficial declaration of French repara
The necessity and justice of the
payment of reparations by Germany
were emphasized by the Frenoh
premier, who placed the blame for
the present situation on the attitude
of the reparations commission and
the failure of Great Britain to' un
derstand the desperate plight of her
allies and the need for the payment
of the indemnity.
M. Poincare recited figures in an
effort to prove that 'Germany was
responsible for her own collapse and
had deliberately failed to live up
to the demands of the reparations
commission. He vigorously denied
that the French sought to enslave
Germany in revenge for the devas
tation of the war.
France Eager to Co-Operate.
Premier Poincare held out the
hope of German and French co-op
eration, with both nations working
together some day, if" Germany
would change her tactics and do
her best to repair in peace the dam
age she caused in war. France was
eager to co-operate with her allies,
he said, but would take independent
action rather than be deprived of
her ju?t compensation.
The premier spoke at length of
the divergent courses, now being
taken by France and England. He
decjared that it was only natural
that nations, like people, should

Guy W. Talbot, president, had been
told the bare facts of the tragedy.
Young was said to have been rid
ing on the footboard at the front
of a small yard locomotive when
the mascot dog of the camp came
frolicking across the track. The
dog seemed In peril of being run
down by the engine and the youth
hopped down to rescue the pet. In
some way he fell or was overtaken
by the locomotive. For a short dis

footboard and crushed back against
the front axle.

The- engineer stopped the loco
