Truman Pledges To Carry On,
Fight for Roosevelt Principles




Dedicate Estate as
Ngtional Shrine
By The Associated Press
HYDE PARK, N. Y., April 12 -
President Truman today pledged to
"carry on in the way of Franklin D.
Roosevelt" as he dedicated the late
President's Hudson river estate as a
national monument.
The former President died a year
ago today.
Standing bareheaded on the stone
veranda of the Roosevelt stone and
stucco mansion, Mr. Truman said
"we shall continue to fight" for his
predecessor's "progressive and hu-
mane principles of the New Deal" and
"principles of international coopera-
Isolation Impossible
The President said Mr. Roosevelt
"saw clearly that we cannot con-
tinue to live isolated from other na-
tions" and "recognized, above all
that our hope for the future of civili-
zation, for the future of life itself, lay
in the success of the United Nations."
He added that the former chief
executive's foreign policy "called for
fair, sympathetic and firm dealing
with the other members of the family
of nations."
The President spoke before an au-
dience of several thousand, including
many government leaders as well as
the ambassadors or ministers of 18
foreign countries.
Millions more heard him via a
world-girdling radio hookup.
Mrs. Roosevelt Present
Behind the President on the white-
pillared front porch were Mrs.
Eleanor Roosevelt, Interior Secretary
J, A. Krug, and many others who had
been friends and associates of the
late president.
Mrs. Roosevelt was dressed in
black. She stepped forward to a post
First Thought
Of Academy
"The Michigan Academy of Sci-
ence owes its inception to Prof. Jacob
E. Reighard, former head of the De-
partment of Animal Morphology at
the University, who felt the need of
bringing together the teachers and
other persons in the state who were
interested in research," states a
pamphlet in the Michigan Academy
of Science, Arts and Letters exhibit
in the General Library.
The exhibit is commemorating the
fiftieth anniversary of the Academy's
founding which has held annual
meetings since 1894, except in 1896
and 1914, all but four of the meetings
were held in Ann Arbor.
On display are accounts of various
Academies of Science, including sev-
eral printed in the seventeenth cen-
tury, in the United States and many
European and Asiatic countries.
Because it was impossible during
the war to secure' foreign periodicals
and society publications micro-film
was used and distributed to the li-
braries by several scientific organi-
zations. The exhibit displays two
rolls of films from France and Rus-

spt aking at the dedication of Hyde
Park as a national shrine.

surrounding green acres, she said:
"My husband's spirit lives in this
house, in the library, and in the quiet
garden where he wished his body to
Recognition for Roosevelt
Speaking of his predecessor, Mr.
T umnan said:
"All over the globe plain people
join with leaders and statesmen in
recognition that it was largely be-
cause of him that civilization has
survived. Only history can do him
full justice.
"The progressive and humane
principles of the New Deal embodied
the great hope which in an hour of
extreme crisis President Roosevelt
gave to the American people. As car-
ried out in practice the New Deal be-
came the realization of that hope."
Good Neighbor Policy
"In the foreign field, President
Roc,,evelt's guiding thought was that
this nation as a good neighbor must
play an active, intelligent and con-
structive part in world affairs. He
saw clearly that we cannot continue
to live isolated from other nations.
He knew that what happens on other
continents must affect the welfare
of our country."
In pledging continuance of the
foreign and domestic principles and
policies of Mr. Roosevelt, Mr. Tru-
man said changes might be re-
quired to meet changing conditions
and he concluded:
"May Almighty God, who watches
over this republic as it grew from
weakness to strength, give us the wis-
dom to carry on in the way of
Franklin D. Roosevelt."
