In addressing the Harvard univer
sity cluss Senator l-odge said in re
gard to the league of nation:
"At the clone of the last century
there was a quite general oellef that
furious wars would not come again.
Some doubted and for their skepti
cism were called 'Jingoes,' 'war lov
ers' and 'pessimist.'
"Hut almost everyone felt sure
that if war should again break upon
us Its .horrors would be reduced to
the loweitt point and that the conven
tion or ieneva and The Hague, the
suffering and cruelties of past wars'
would lie largely eliminated.
"Suddenly the great war came
Germany esteemed by ail as a highly
civilized nation, entered deliberately
upon a course of savage cruelty
worse than any ever Imagined. The
world had known barbarism before,
but never had anything fallen upon
men com payable to the scientific,
wholimale atrocities carried on by
Germany by which not merely indi
viduals, but entire communities "were
subjected to the most hideout suf
ferings and the most utter ruin
which highly-trained minds entirely
destitute or humanity could devise.
"As for treaties and laws they
went ito the fierce flame of war as
quickly as the dry leaves of autumn
when a spark f a!! among them.
"The beautiful scheme ot making
mankind suddenly virtuous by a stat
ute or a written convention was
once more exhibited In all Its weak
"It Is a melancholy reflection that
the brt assurances of the future
peace of the world lies In the de
struction ot the German war power
which is worth all It costs.
"Once again conies the harsh les
son that alt the advances of men in
morals and in altruism, in chsxlty
and gentler manners and purer laws,
all that really remain with us. come
slowly, never in a moment'
"I forvently hope," he said to the
Harvard graduates, "that you will
have visions and dream dreams, but
do not' forget that having vision Is
one thing, while being a visionary,
especially a visionary whose visions
and Ideals ate stage-properties, is
quite another." . . j
Russian bolsheviam, Mr. lodge
said in conclusion, presents a warn

"this Russian scene says to us 'this

"Does the United States tell us
trumpot-tongued that the country
for which this younger generation
has died is still the best hope for
mankind and that It must 'be pre
served as their fathers preserved and
saved It in the days that are gone?
Be lAmerlcana first, Americans last
