I like to think of that as the founding of Chicago. I IIKO to feel that this groat city owes Its beginning to tho master explorer, who was first a devout missionary of religion. 1 am glad to turn aside here to add my little part to the tribute which the city is today paying to the memory of Marquette. Of the men who laid the foundations of our country, he deserves his place among tho foremost. Hla published articles and letters give, I believe, iho earliest prophesies ot tho destiny that awaited this central valley of the vast lakes and rivers. You people ot tho Chicago empire have built into the solid structure of accomplishment the things which he, a quarter of a mil- lenlum ago, saw with clearness and faith of prophesy. World Food Market. "Whenever I think of your wonderful Chicago, I think of it first as the great market placo to which tho world resorts to buy and sell Its food. It Is because tho genius of your commerce and tho Industry of the people who llvo in these central valleys havo erected hero u vast exchange, to which the nations havo come In their lean years to traffic for tho foodstuffs which you have gathered together for them, that you aro first known to fame. And, thinking of these things, my mind hns gone back to that most appealing of all, the romances which wo find In tho Old Testament: to the Btory of Joseph and tho famine of the RCVOU lean years iii Egypt which followed the seven fat years. You will all remember the story of tho seven years of plenty and after them, the seven years of famine. Let mo remind you ot that period ot agricultural depression In tho words of Moses and the Book of Genesis: Finds Parallel Today. "It is not necessary In Chicago, or anywhere In agricultural America, to point out the parallel between that appeal of the ancient world to Kgypl and the appeal which the world In our day made to our country, and to the great market which centers in Chicago, for similar supply of grain lu another tlmo of pressing neod. "The famine brought the nations to Egypt, and Egypt rescued them. So the war brought tho nations to your agricultural markets and you provided them with food.
