Buddy Howard As Memorial Day approaches, the words of William B. Gladstone come to mind. He was the brilliant British political figure, 4 times Prime Minister who died in 1898. His words are — "Show me. the manner In which a nation cares for its dead, and I will measure with mathematical exactness the tender 'mercies of its people, their respect lor the liuvs o{ the land and their loyalty to high ideals." His words have special significance on our American ' scene. This is way. While Memorial Day is observed and all our dead are honored in every town and village, special attention is always centered on Arlington National Cemetery, our nation's Memorial shrine. Here is the tie in to Gladstone's words ... Our Arlington National Cemetery occupies what was once th« family estate Of Mrs. Robert E. Lee . . . Robert E Lee, as you well know, was the Commanding General fo the CONFEDERATE armies! This chosen location is proof positive of American tender mercies with loyalty to high ideals.
