ROOSEVELT S FOURTH OF JULY AD
Probably no F o u rth of J u ly address
was ever given t h a t created more fa
vorable com m ent th a n the one given by
Colonel Roosevelt List F o u rth at Forest
Hills, Jjong Island. He pleaded with
th e people for a single sta n d a rd of
loyalty, and argued th a t th e re were
some who were not really treasonable,
according to law, were morally so.
Among other things Colonel Roese-
velt said : “ There can be no half and
half a ttitu d e in this war, and no ho n
orable m an can afford to take such an
a ttitude. We are bound by «very con
sideration of loyalty and goad faith to
our allies, and any opposition to them ,
and any aid given to their and our e n
em y, is basely dishonorable as regards
our allies and treasonable as regards our
own c o u n try .”
He said t h a t th e claim t h a t it was
n a tu r a l for A m erican citizens of G er
m an origin to favor G erm any was " n o n
sense, and criminal nonsense to boot,”
and added, “ E ith e r a m an is an A m eri
can and nothing else, or he is not an
A m erican a t all. We are akin by blood
and descent to most of the nations of
Europe, but w-e are se) arate from all of
them . We are a new and distin c t n a
tion, and we are bound always to give
our w holehearted undivided lovalty to
our flag, and in any international crisis
to tre a t e ie r v foreign nation purely ac
cording to its conduct in tha t crisis. It
is both weak and wicked to permit any
of our citizens te hold dual or divided
allegiance, and it is just as mischievous,
just as un-A merican to d.scrim inate
against any good American because of
his birthplace, creed or p a re n ta g e .”
E laborating on tha t point and pro
testing against the plan to exclude from

G erm an or A ustrian parentage or des

had been perm itted to raise a military

he coutinued. “ Semmes never destroy
