WM/NB8UAT, WOT, tt, TM four Score aricf N/ne Years Lincoln Made Famed Address CUMHPJt HEWS • . B? ABTHUB EMON (Vtt luaf* Marlon-) WASHINGTON UH — Elghty-nlne y»ar> ago today, as soon as the Baltimore Ole* Club had finished ths tall homely man milled a paper from his pocket and began to read a speech In' his high, unmusical voice. The crowd at' Gettysburg, ft probably didn't pay too much attention. , , , "Fourscore and seven years •go" • Abraham Lincoln began, "our fathers brought forth on this continent a hew nation,"conceived In liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are crested equal," • . After all, then had been plenty of spseehmsking; already. Especially from Edward Everett, who had been a U, S. 'senator, a governor of'Massachusetts, a cabinet member, a minister to Great Britain and president of Harvard. As the nation's top orator, Everett, In his hour and 57-mlnute speech, touched all the bases, including a description of how the early Greeks cared for those who were killed in battle. Lincoln stuck to his own nation, •nd Hs awful problems. "Now we are engaged in.a great civil war testing .whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long en- "dure," he; said, "We are met on a great battlefield of that war. We have come lo dedicate a portion of that field, as a* final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. "It is altogeiher fitting and proper that.we should do this. "But,' in a'larger sense .we cannot dedicate, we cannot consecrate, we cannot hallo\\, this ground The |hra\e,men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it far above our poor power to add or detract." Almost Didn't Make Speech Oddly, Lincoln- almost didn't make (he speech, and for a good reason. No ! bne asked him to. He had been invited to the ceremonies earlier. Alter he had accepted, the sponsors decided It would be okav to have the President say a "few appropriate remarks." .To us now, some of. the reaction to the speech seems curious. The Harrisburg, Pa.,-Patriot and Union said "We puss over the silly remarks of the President; for the credit of the nation we are Willing that the veil of obli\ion shall be dropped . over .them • and that they shall no more be repeated or thought', of." And from the Chicago Times came this- 'The cheek of e^ery American must tingle'with shame as he reads the sillv, flat, and dish watery utterances . " Lincoln himse'f didn't seem to think he had a bell rmger "The world will little note nor long remember what ne saj here," he ^aid, "but it can ne\er foiget what they did here," Lincoln was readv for his "It Is for us the Hying, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which thev who fought here ha\e thus far so nobly «d\Rnced," he said 'It is rather for us to be here dedicated, to the great task remaining before us — that from these honored dead we take increased devotion" to that cause Tor.which they, gave the last full measure of devotion — that «c h»r« highly resolve that tho*> dead shall not have died in vain; that this nation, under God, shall'have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by !he people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth." / The tall man sat down. He had been expected lo make some per- funcUiry remarks and probably he Sot only perfunctory applause. It [Jlldn't matter. The Chicago Tribute man summed it up In a sentence. „ "Tiie dedicatory remarks of Presltjent Lincoln," he said,- "will HvelWong the annals of man." Tq^-be remembered, and Ex-New Jersey Governor Dies SOMERVILLE, N. J. (ff) —Former Oov. A. Harry Moore, 73, New Jersey's onlj three-time governor, suffered a stroke and died jester- day whiie driving his automobile near here.
