Americans, a toast:
' 'To the American so'.dier, un

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. Civilization owes a
debt of gratitude to the American
soldier, that can never be repaid
Christian Teachings Perpetaatea
"We who enjoy these blessings,
shall never forget or neglecto

them into being. 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!"

Melvin R. 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
, 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.

Mathilde McCormick Would
Name Her Father as Her.
Guardian, Favors Oser
CHICAGO. 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)
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.
