WASHINGTON", March 4. (A. U
Dradlord, IT. P. StoTf Correspondent.)
Wilson left the white house for. the
last time a halting, ashen-faced fig
ure, exerting every ounce of his will
power. A, crowd gathered outside the
white house grounds to see him and
Harding leave for the capitol, and
stood hushed to silence by the spec
tacle of a bent, gray-haired man shuf
fling to his automobile. Attendants
had to lift his feet to the steps and
hilp him inside. During his ride to
the capitol, Wilson was oblivious to
the crowds which cheered intermit
tently. Not once did the president
raise his hat, apparently thinking the
tribute paid was all for harding. But
the old fighting spirit still' stayed
with him. In the last few minutes of
his term he killed two bills with which
he didn't agree the Immigration re
striction and the army appropriation
bills. ' '"'

from the chair to his feet . He then
hobbled slowly out of the president'
room, went to his new home and be-
came a private citizen. Members of
the family and the cabinet were gath
ered at his home.
The presidential party left the
white house after staying there half
an hour. Miss Margaret Wilson and
members of the Boiling family were
on the second- floor watching the ar
rival of the Harding party. Faces of
servants were also seen In the win-

(United Press fe'taff Correspondent J
WASHINGTON, Mar. 4. (C, P.)
A solemn. waiting that America stand
ready to resist any attempted rever
sion of civilization was sounded by
President Warren G. Harding In his
inaugural address today.
America, he said, seeks no 'part in
directing the destinies of the ' old
world, but she is ready to enter an '
association of nations for conference
and counsel which will not Impair the
sovereignity of the I'nited States. 1
He declared flatly against perman
ent military alliances.
"Our eyes will never be blind to a
developing menace, our ears never deaf
to the call of civilization," he said.
"There was no American failure to
resist the attempted reversion of civi
lization, there will be no failure today
or tomorrow;'"-ia-4iadded : Wte.
"We shall give no people Just cause to
make war upon us." he said at another
point. "We hold no national prejudic
es; we entertain no npirlt of revenge.
we do not hate, we do not covert, we
dream of no conquest nor boast of
armed powers. If, despite this atti
tude, war is forced upon us, I earnestly
hope a way may be found which will
unify our individual and collective
strength and , consecrate all America.

"I can vision the Ideal republic.
where every man and woman is called

may call to universal service every

The league of nations was not men
tioned, but schemes of "super-government"
were unsparingly denounced.
The new executive pledged himself
to recommend a way 40 approximate

golden rule which should be crowned
with the autocracy of service,
"Humanity hungers for Internation.

Enlarging on th'is doctrine of good
will, he raised a fervent grayer for
peace both among nations and among
men. "Mankind needs a worldwide
benediction of understanding," he said,

office on that passage of holy writ
where In it Is asked: 'What doth the
Lord require of thee but to do justly,
and to love merry and to wnlk humbly

The progress of the nation, he as
serted, proves the wisdom of the policy
of non-involvement in old world af
lairs. "Confident of our ability to work
out our own dentiny and jealously re
garding our right to do so, we no
