Harding vs Harvey
Ambassador Harvey declared in London that America's
entry into the war was purely selfish, to save our own skins.
To quote his words: "We sent our soldiers solely to save the
United States and most reluctantly and niggardly at that.
We were not too proud to fight. We were afraid
not to fight. That is the real truth of the matter."
Harvey voices the inspiration of the senate cabal which
defeated the peace treaty and the motives which annimated
those to whom patriotism was synonymous with profiteering,
not the inspiration that vitalized the nation during the
struggle. He is the seamy reverse side of victory, in which
commercialism has replaced altruism the reaction from
exalted idealism to sordid selfishness.
Though the official mouthpiece of the administration,
Colonel Harvey evidently did not speak for it, for at the first
opportunity, his utterances-were repudiated by the president,
who before the coffins of 5,000 of the nation's dead, said :
"These heroes were sacrificed in the supreme conflict of all
human history. They saw civilization threatened and rescued
it They saw America affronted and resented it. iney saw
our Nation's rights imperilled and stamped those rights with
a new sanctity and renewed security. They gave all that
men and women can give. We shall give our most and best
:t naruir, That xhtv Hid not die in vain."
It is evident that Harvey voiced tne sentiments 01 t
cynical senate leaders who have arrogated to themselves
control of foreign affairs, and not of Harding and Hughes
who constitutionally control them. The sooner the president
asserts his leadership by recalling Harvey, the better for

for him to do some great thing to

Of course It was out of the
question for me to live at home.
I decided to invest $30,000 in
