BRIEF TOAST OFFERED BY JUSTICE BURNETT Crowd of One Thousand Gathers Following Street I Memorial Parade "I propose to this audience ot Americans, a toast: ' 'To the American so'.dier, un conquered, unconquerable; and to the place he has won in history as the champion of liberty, equal ity and fraternity:' " This was the substance of Judge George H. Burnett's two mirfuie address at the great Memoria: day meeting at the armory Tues day afternoon. Debt Owing to Soldier Continuing, he said: "To America is accorded the high honor ot emancipating the world from the theory ot the di vine right of kings, under which one person might claim, the right to rule .another without his con bent. We began our national his tory with the proposition that all men are equal in rights. It was fought out in 1876; it was main tained in 1812; it was confirmed in 1861; it has been perfected in the struggles that have gone be yond our borders in the years tlnce then, until now it covers the whole earth.

They have per petuated the coordination of the teachings of the Man of Nazareth, the Golden Rule, and the finite principles of liberty, equality and justice. Let us protect our free American schools, the foundations ot our national greatness, for in doing this we protect what they fought for and all that we hold dear. . "To the American soldier be all honor throughout all time!" Auditorium Filled The audience at the armory numbered close to 1000 psople, many of whom had taken their cieats before the street parade was over. Seats had been reserv ed for all the marching bodies. About 40 members of the Grand Army were present, in seats ot honor on the first two rows.

Cohn Comes From Seattle to March With Father; Both Soldiers ' Jot it few or the thousands who cheered the marching vet erans at the Memorial day parade, Toesday afternoon, took note of the tall, stalwart and sedate if not quite somber man marching in the Spanish war veterans column, and by his side a laughing, strap ping youth who was having the time of his life. The real story has a heart "kick" in it. Twenty-two years ago, the big man was a lithe young lad who believed the Stars and Stripes were worth fighting for, and that humanity outside ot the American borders had rights that ought to be taken to them by force, It necessary. He enlisted In the Uth United States infantry, serving through the first Ameri can, war for other than home free dom. Five years ago, the younger lad, then only a stripling, but bearing the same name as the big frnan, and with the same heroic and un selfish spaik, enlisted in , the American service for the freedom of the world. He served ir. the Eigth Machine Gun battalion, en listing from Seattle, and doing du ty overseas until it was all over and they could come home in honor. , He returned to Seattle to make his home. But this Memorial day, he said: "I'm going down to Salem to march in line with Dad under the old flag. It means as much to me as it ever did to him, and we'll, go it together. And then. when the World war veterans hold their national encampment here in Seattle, in August, he's got to come up and march with me!" So Marion R. Cohn came down from Seattle, to walk beside "Dad" Louis Cohn, of The Ace book and news store here in Sa lem, and they made the oddly as sorted pair in the parade odd until one understood just what it meant. They'll march again up at Seattle, in August. It won't be a bit too hot for fat "Dad" to tramp along wfth tbe gallant lad who bears his own name. It may rain, hail, snow, scorch, or blow; the Cohn stamp of loyalty will be proof against any weather condi tions and they'll be there John- ny-at-the-ratbole either in con vention or In the field. Both are actively identified with Jewish organizations. HEAT RECORDS BROKEN EUGENE, Or.May 30. All heat records for May we're broken here, today when the temperature reached 92 degrees.'

May 30. (By The Associated Press) Mathilde Mc Cormick came home from New York today to "take sides with her father in what has threatened to grow Into a court battle over ber proposed marriage to Max Oser, Swiss riding master. Miss McCormick tonight was planning to appeal In probate court tomorrow and tell Judge Horner that she wants her father, Harold F. McCormick, millionaire head of the- International Harves ter company, to be her guardian. Mrs. Edith Rockefeller McCor mick, who recently divorced Mr. McCormick on grounds of deser tion, has obtained a court order reopening the proceedings which were thought to have made Mr. McCormick Mathllde's guardian. At the time of the divorce, Mathilde chose to stay with her father. Under the Swiss law, it was explained the consent of both parents or the legal guardian is necessary to the marriage of a minor. Mrs. McCormick was said to be unalterably opposed to the marriage, while Mr. McCormick was said to be in favor of it as a last resort if it proved absolutely essential to his daughter's happi ness. Ages Objected To The objections of both were said to center in the disparity ot ages between Oser, who was said to be at least 45 years of age and Mathilde, who Is just 17. Mathilde was brought up by her mother in a hotel in Zurich, Switzerland, receiving only occa sional visits from her father. Mrs. McCormick was said at that time to have been absorbed in the study of psychology and psycho analysis, and Mathilde was left much to her own devices. She had hardly laid aside her dolls and ac quired a pony when she met Oser. who then owned a riding academy and taught her to ride. A former army officer, highly educated and a master of horse manship, Oser was said to have been idolized by the lonesome girl and he. In turn, gave her the affection of a father. Oser Urged Delay Last year, Mrs. McCormick re turned alone to Chicago, leaving Mathilde in Zurich alone with a maid and governess. Mathilde did not come to tbe United States un til after her mother had obtained a divorce and she then Joined her father, her engagement becoming known shortly afterwards. At the time Mathilde revealed some thing of her romance, saying her fiance had urged her to come to America before their marriage that she might be more ; sure of herself and better know her own people. ' - - (Continued on page 6) WASHINGTON. May Sfrj (By The Associated Press) The hom age of a people was poured out today at the shrine erected by a decade of patient . labor to Abra ham Lincoln. Under the thought ful gaze of bis ' marble likeness, dim in the shadowy background of the gleaming white temple his countrymen have raised- to him, thousands of American - were gathered. . Men great ih the councils ot the nation were there. The president came to accept in. the . nation's .name, the memorial reared at the Aver brim. A former president came gladly to give accounting of his trust' as head ot the commis sion that saw the great work , to its completion. !2 Common People Assemble . Senators, representatives; cabi net officers, admirals and gener als all were there; but it was not these, lavish as were their trib utes to the great dead who made the day historic in American an nals. It was the swelling tide ot humble people who ' stood for hours under a blazing sun to claim this temple of freedom and the man whose memory it en shrines as their own. . . " t Far as the eye could reach, from the high base of the memor ial, Americans were spread; over the lawns and clustering under the trees that .grace the' setting. How many may have been there to hear the words ot the speakers, caught up and flung to far dis tances by the amplifiers that stud ded the coping atop the marble structure, no man' might estimate. But when the last word had been said, when the president . had gripped the hands with 'Robert L4ncoln at the foot of the father's statue, the public broke over the barriers and swept unchecked up the .wide steps to see for itself tha things that have been wrought In the people's name. ' Military Scheme Minimized There was .little of , military splendor about the dedication ser vices. Just a flourish of trumpets to mark the coming and going of President Harding and, the solemn ritual, with which, the men of the Grand Army of the Republic dedi cated the silken emblem of a re united country on the steps of the memorial. The words of the for mal orders at the' service were spoken 1n voices shaken and thin with age, and the. hands that held the banner .aloft trembled under the weight ot years. Along the front benches of a lower terrace facing the . great statue above, were - gathered the veterans. To the right, a handful of old men had donned again the blue that gave them front place In the day's events, and stood to act as guard of honor when the presi dent arrived. Flanking these to the left, a bare score ot gray clad veterans of the armies of Lee or other southern generals stood proudly to salute the flag - that Lincoln's vision and high courage preserved as the flag ot one peo ple. - , , - President Thrilled! The sight of these bent men In gray drew President Harding from the written text of his address He was saying that to Lincoln, greater than, any other reward he could have known, would have been the knowledge that his vis ion had been fulfilled; that the broad - waters of the Potomac flowing within a stone's throw of the memorial, marks no boun dary between two nations, but that from sea to sea Americans are ne people. Mr. Harding's voice thrilled - as he paused to draw attention to the gray clad veterans and recall that twice since Lincoln died, men - ot the southern states, sons ot such men as these old warriors, had come in their trength,to fight for the flag to which thelr fathers returned after th bitter 60's. . "How . it would comfort his great soul. the president said, "to know that the states of, the southland Join sincerely in hon oring him and have twice since his day Joined with U the fervor of his own great heart in defend ing the flag. How it would soften his anguish to , know that the south long since came to realize that a vain assassin robbed it ot Us most sincere and potent friend when it was prostrate and strick en when Lincoln's sympathy and understanding would-have helped to heal the wounds and hide the scars and speed the restoration.
