Signs of the Times

[President Hoover, as quoted in the New York Times, New York]

With each succeeding year, Armistice Day has come to be a day to pay tribute to the millions who valiantly bore arms in a worthy cause and to renew resolves that the peace for which these men sacrificed themselves shall be maintained. . . .

It is by building good will and constructive effort among nations that we can best honor the memory of the men who died that the world should have peace. This monument stands for men who fought not alone for their country but to establish . . . justice and peace. We pay tribute here to their valor. We honor them for their sacrifices. We respect their memory by renewing our obligations to the purposes and ideals for which they fought.
