POINTS EMPHASIZED BY WILSON
.In his inaugural address .today, President. Wilson emphasized the
things that the United States shall stand for, whether in war or In peace:
.."That, alienations are. equally Interesited in the peace of the world
and in the political stability, of free peoples, and equally responsible for
their maintenance, " ,
"That the essential principle of peace is the actual equality of
nations in all matters of right or privilege,
"That peace cannot securely or justly rest upon an armed balance
of power, ,
"That governments derive all their just powers from the consent
of the governed and that no other powers should be supported by the
common thought, purpose or power of the family of nations,
, "That the seas should'be equally free and safe forthe use of all
the peoples, under rules set up by common agreement and consent, and
that, so far as practicable, they should be applicable to all upon equal
terms, ' " '
"That national armaments should be limited to the necessities of
national order-and domestic safety,
' "That the community of interest and of power upon which peace
must henceforth: depend imposes. upon each nation the duty of seeing
to it that all influences proceeding fronrits own citizens meant to en
courage or assist revolution in other states' should be sternly and ef
fectually suppiessed and prevented."

neutrality measure and take the steps
which lie lies feared he old not have
the power to take.
If the president finds lie has the
power to go ahead and arm mer
chantmen It probably will delay his
calling an extra session of congress.
On the other hand, if hi.i legal ad

necessary authority without a special

upon revision of the rules and will
