ONttOB * j^n 1 - Wnfiectlbn fcltfc the memorial l«Bte*« In oak ftldge cemetery b« st Jfrla'fty afternoon, Rabbi Eugerie •- flifestinian Of the Temple Beth ,tfrtuUt/<ftt6 of the speakers, had as ttifej&Jt, "Pe-ace Time Heroes;" said: MerttoHal day brings memories. tfnerff come ( to uii recollections of pa- trldtlo ftttdl Valiant deeds on red-dyed bftttlefleldOtKe period of Washing- ten, th« 6rft" ( 0f Lincoln, the years of MeKlnley/ahd the yesterday of Wil- fc4n rlrigf ml with works of bravery. They WW !Meit their children free', tttfey whri tfl«d 'that the 'Flag of Free- do'm and 'Union wave', they who remembered the Maine, they who 'made this wofld sAfe for democracy', all dl'ed the death of the glorious. ('la It • ludicrous then to remember tnW Who died in the Held of daily duty? The mother Who lies on the he'd <Jf death, the teacher who by use of; mind And fraying of nerves goea 6rl t*. her death, the miner who digs hi* own grave, the engineer who rides to his death, the fireman who climbs to his grave— are they any the leas glorious? Their tasks are commonplace and routine. Thus their nobility Is obscured. t'Yet.!t,ls they Who save your city, arid youf country, and your world. Let the mother cease bearing children, let the teacher- lay down her pen and book and remain silent, let the miner drop his pick and shovel, let thel engineer close the throttle of his leviathan, and the fireman pay no heed to the signal Of conflagration— also, what a " catastrophe to our civilization. They are only five of thousands who have been compelled to forsake duty by the stroke of death whose memory we ' attempt to Immortalize today. Their dally duties may have been humble,' but they were never trivial. "Recognizing the Importance of their task, We of Altoona are assembled ajt their resting place. It Is a solemn pledge that we who are sympathetic with the Ideal embodied here must take upon ourselves— a resolution that we will do all in our little power to honor the heroes of peace rtnd to do right by them. The Pennsylvania Federation of Labor in the annual convention here this week approved resolutions demanding justice for the .laboring man. Wo, too, must abide by that principle. "One 6f» our periodicals has Issued a series of articles Indicating that in spite of the safety-first movement, in reality there is a situation that Is tantamount to safety, last. Some of these heroes that we honor owe their deaths to such hypocrisy. Let not those Who serve us be forgotten while they live and work. Let us not be cool to the practicing of the justice •which is their right. Let them be glorified. , ''Therefore, we of a modern and more civilized era have come to realize the; nobility of faithful W9rk. We if bibod U the plflee of ill ytfufr .,. wealth Good God, we ha* paid in full | Oobd CJod, we ha 1 paid It in! Good U6d, we 1 ha' bought it fair.' "Vindictive words • thes^ W fair words. We of the warmer heart, we of the nobler mind grieve for your loss, and uplift you to new heights. Most of us who never knew you, yet honor you as members of the great group of loyal lives, labor. "There la a strange belief among a primitive people that the souls of women who die In childbirth take Up their dwelling In trees. You, O mother, who ha,ve expired on the bed of pain, do we uplift as it were to the topmost branches, to a position of nobility and ascendancy. "You, O teacher of redeeming knowledge, may the message of your teaching find a place In the minds and hearts of all your fellowmen, so that you too (may be redeemed in life and in death. , "Hail to the heroes of peace. Hail to them tlmt we honor simply, sincerely, honestly and with noble motives and unselfish Ideals, them who have been long forgotten, but Who are remembered today."
