PERSONAL AIMS HIT
Lauds America' and Warns
People With Puny Weak
nesses to Stand Aside
WASHINGTON, Nov. 11.
Woodrow Wilson told a host ot
friends and admirers who made
an Armistice day visit to his home
here today that world peace could
be brought about Only by "active
cooperation tor justice" and "not
by amiable phrases." America al
ways has stood for justice, he de
clared, adding that the "puny
persons" now standing in the way
would find presently that "their
weakness is no match foi the
strength of a moving providence."
, Third Public Address
Thef former president spoke
standing on the portico of hlk S
street residence and without
manuscript or notes. His remark!
consumed about fire minutes.
They were the first he had made
on public questions since he was
stricken on T his ; League ot Ma
tions tour of the west .two years
SgovThIs was his third pulflleEp-
pearance since he left the Whit 3
House on March 4, 1921. '
The appearance of Mr. Wilson;
who was assisted to the portico by
a negro servant was the signal for
prolonged cheers from the crowd
that packed the stand overflowed
on nearby lawns and a vacant
field. The war-time nresldent re
sponded with a smile and raising
of his conventional-silk hat. Mrs.
Wilson : did not accomOanv him.
out. as she appeared to assist him
indoors at the conclusion of his
address, she too, received an ova
tion. V
Lacks Old Time Force
Mr. Wilson's address was in
response, to one delivered to him
by , Henry Morgenthau, former
ambassador to Turkey, who de
clared that the principles enun
ciated by Mr. Wilson during the
war -would prevail nd that on
last Tuesday It had been demon
strated that "the people of Amerl-
car are escaping from material
Jsm and. selfishness and are pre
paring -again to recognize their
solemn and inexorable duty to
wards their "feTTow Stations in Eu
rope." . ,
"This reference to the elections
brought a smile and a low cry of
"here, here" from the former
chief executive. Mr. Wilson spoke
clearly -and - distinctly and with
much of his old time rapidity,
Necessarily, however, there was
lacking the one characteristic
vigor of deliver and Tils voice
carried only slightly beyond the
Inner' e'dges ot the' er&wd. ' "
Raps Senators
'I am very much moved by this
wonderful exhibition of your
friendship and ' approval and
have been reflecting today that
Armistice day has particular Sig
nificance for the United States be
cause the s Chlted States ' has re
mained contented with the Arm
istice and has not moved forward
to peace,'' he said. - -...,
"It is a very serious reflection
that the United States, the grSat
Originative nation , should remain
contented with a negation. Armis
tice is a negation; it is a stand
still of arms; it is a cessation of
fighting and we are so bent on a.
cesastlon of fighting that we are
even throwing our arms away.
"It is a singular circumstance
that Mr. Morgenthau. has in part
imparted that while we prescribed
to the conditions of the Armistice
we did not concur in establish
ment of permanent peace. That, of
course, was brought about by a
group in the United States senate

motives to the honor of their

adopted today at the closing ses
sion of the National Civic Feder

. Outlook Declared Dark
, ''The outlook of the four years
of peace is daYk indeed," Baid a
declaration drawn up as a pre
amble to the various resolutions
adopted. "With one accord we
turn our attention to the problem
of how civilization can be saved
from impending ruin.
"The fourth anniversary of the
Armistice is a significant time for
the holding of a conference to
consider the question of America's

While warning against attempts

Oregon Wood Products Co,
Adds New Equipment to
West Safem Plant
, Improvements in the Oregon
Wood Products company factory
in West Salem are going to speed
up its production, tremendously.
They have Installed a steam en
gine and a large enough boiler
to use most of their waste, with
blowers from all the saws and
lathes , to carry .all the refuse
right . to the boiler room ready to
be burned.
Rearrangement ot the machines
makes the footing of the work
much . more economical, and the
disposal of the waste far easier
while the use of (the waste in the
company's own steam plant In
stead of paying high price to have
it hauled away, makes a great
saving In labor, as well as all
the saving in electrical current.

30-inch saw has been installed,
with which much of the stock
from logs can be cut that will
be bought in the open market. A
siding has been graded in to the
plant, and a passing track also
between the company's siding, and
the main, track' of the Southern
Pacific. The rails win be laid
soon.
Some catting of oak logs has
been done, the work proving en
tirely satisfactory. The Oregon
oak is one of the best hardwoods
la the American market, tor many
hardwood uses. It Is'. not suite
as springy, but it is as tough as
the best second growth white
hickory, and it does not warp
nearly as much for handles. The
company. has two lathes for turn
Ing handles and other irregular
shapes, and expects to get into
the oak business this winter.
I More orders are piling up for
broom handles, paper roll plugs,
and a score, of wood novelties,
than the company has been able
to ycare for... Greater factory
capacity .has been urgently need
ed until the company has finally
begun to expand and really meet
the demand. " '

Four years ago. at precise!" 11

did yesterday. , 1 T
ome of the edge of memory h'ai
been dulled by. the passing of the
years but ., most .of, those who
heard the Whistles yesterday knew
that it was not a fire," a riot, a
holocaust but a (glad memory of
the peace, that, dame "when the
clock foiled out the agreed hour
of eleven and the nations might
pack up their ttred-to-death living
soldiers, and their shot-to-death
soldiers who had already fallen,
and reurn to their homes. , They
knew then that the war was over;
they knew It yesterday," and they
rejoiced at the din for , it meant
peace and safe homes and friends.
Column Blocks Long
The whistles blew and the bells
rang to usher in the observance of
the day. . The. first- of the real,
public services, however, was the
parade, that formed .at Marlon
square and marched . south to
Court, then east to Church, then
south to State,. then west to Com
mercial, and then to the armory.
The marching coltmn, : covering
several blocks, was beaded by the
Oregon national guard, followed
in order by the American Legion,
the Salem Indian school band, the
Grand Army, some of them 6n
foot and "others in autos, the
United Spanish War veterans, the
Daughters of Veterans, the Sana
tion army, and others In line to
make an imposing showing.
Old Veterans Given Hand
What a hand tne marching
Grand army men got along the
crowded streets! Some of them
were pretty unsteady; some were
bent, with years and with
wounds; and the pace was bard
for the 80-year-olds. But they
were as game as in the days when
tney ran wua wun snerman or
Grierson . or "fought mit Slegel
and the miles were easier than the
blocks of today. Armistice day
was theirs, for most of them had
sons or grandsons in the World
war, and they followed the war
story unerringly and with poig

was fired and their own boys
came home
Guard at Salute
At the ' armocy, the national
guard stood; at salute while the
