KINGSTON, Ont., Aug. 18.--IP)-
Here is the text of President Roose-
velt's address at Queens University
To the pleasure of being once more
on Canadian soil where I have passed
so many of the happy hours of my
life, there is added today a very warm
sense of gratitude for being admitted
to the fellowship of this ancient and
famous university. I am glad to join
the brotherhood which Queens has
contributed and is contributing not
only to the spiritual leadership for
which the college was established, but
also to the social and public leader-
snip in the civilized life of Canada.
An American president is preclud-
ed by our Constitution from accept-
ing any title from a foreign prince,
potentate, or power. Queens Univer-
sity is not a prince or a potentate but
it is a power. Yet I can say, without
constitutional reserve, that the ac-
ceptance of the title which you confer
on me today would raise no qualms
in the august breast of our own Su-
Civilization is not national-it is
international-even though that ob,
observation-trite to most of us, is
today challenged in some parts of the
world. Ideas are not limited by ter-
ritorial borders; they are the com-
mon inheritance of all free people.
Thought is not anchored in any land;
and the profit of education rebounds
to the equal benefit of the whole
world. That is one form of free trade
to which the leaders of every oppos-
ing political party can subscribe.
In a large sense we in the Americas
stand charged today with the main-
taining of that tradition. When,
speaking recently in a similar vein
in the Republic of Brazil, I included
the Dominion of Canada in the fel-
lowship of the Americas, our South
American neighbors gave hearty ac-
claim. We in the Americas know
the sorrow and the wreckage which
may follow if the ability of men to
understand each other is rooted out
from among the nations.
Many of us here today know from
experience that of all the devasta-
tions of war none is more tragic than
the destruction which it brings to the
processes of men's minds. Truth is
denied because. emotion pushes it
aside. Forebearance is succeeded by
bitterness. In that atmosphere hu-
man thought can not advance.
It is impossible to remember that
