Roosevelt library, but added, "our confidence in the future of democracy is not diminished." He said dedication of the library, which houses documents and records of his career, "is, in itself, an act of faith. "To gather records and house them in a building where they will be preserved for the use of men living in the future, a nation must believe in three things," Mr. Roosevelt said. "First, it must believe in the past; second, it must believe in the future; third, it must, above all, believe in the capacity of its people to so learn from the past that they can gain in judgment for creation of the future. . . . "From the viewpoint of safety physical safety of our records it is wiser that they be not too greatly concentrated. . . . This latest addition to the archives of America is dedicated at a moment when the government of the people by themselves is everywhere attacked. It is, therefore, proof if any proof is needed that our confidence in the future of democracies is not diminished in this nation and will not diminish." FDH Sees U. S. Facing EVlajor Tests BOSTON.

V je V p 4 to Patricia 0 M Afatcow Paderewski, Pianist And Patriot, Dies NEW YORK. June 30. (.P) Ignace Jan Paderewski, 80, noted Polish pianist and former president of Poland, died last night of pneumonia. During the last year Paderewski worked in the interests of Polish defense and promoted the sale of United States defense bonds. He had been 111 'one week. Ignace Jan Paderewski. pianist, composer and Polish patriot, was probably the first world famous i musician in history to abandon his art at the height of his success, devote himself to liberating and unifying his country and then, his program balked by politics, returned to still greater international acclaim on the concert stage. The masterful finsers of the spectacular virtuoso thrilled millions as they drew inspiring interpretations from the piano, but his greatest joy in life came when Poland was recreated an independent nation. Spent His Fortune In the historic part which he took in that development, he spent his fortune of $2,700,000. In later years, upon resuming his music, he explained he needed work to live. At the age of 75 he starred in a British movie. From the time he resigned as premier of Poland on December 9. 1919, after less than a year in office, he kept aloof from politicians, but he never lost his ardent patriotism. Until January 28, 1921, in fact, he represented Poland at the League of Nations and in other occasional capacities. Retired to Ranch Then he retired to a 2,600 acre ranch in Santa Barbara county, California, the remnants of an extensive holding of which the greater part had been sold to provide funds for Polish propaganda. It was from this home, which he finally sold in 1934. that he emerged to resume concert work in 1923.
