HISTORY OF ORANGE COL'XTY 131

Among the remarks by Governor Stephens, while la\ing the corner.stdnc
of the memorial arch, were the following:

"We would be remiss in our duty as citizens of America were we to foroct,
even for a brief instant, the memory of those who lie on the hillsides of France,
beneath the poppies. The service men of this country performed achievements
worthy of the greatest honor that the world can give them. The people who did
not go to France, as well as those who came back, can honor the dead by living
a life of service to their fellowmen and country, and tlnis win in a measure a
small part of the glory which was theirs."

In contrast with this helpful, patriotic attitude, the governor condemned
Bolshevism as destructive of all government, and said: "Those who brook
l)olshevistic utterances in this country are themselves traitors to their flag. There
is now on the statute books of this state a law which the man who now stands
before you succeeded in having passed — a law, which, if enforced by the officers
of California, would stamp out every trace of Bolshevism."

It is needless to add that such sentiments were vociferously applauded l)\-
the large audience gathered together to express its appreciation of the patriotic
services of its returning citizen-soldiers.

In introducing Governor Stephens to present the recognition medals to the
service men. Chairman Bisby declared that Orange County was very proud of
the fact that the Governor had given up all other calls for the day, and had joined
with the people of Orange County in their recognition exercises. He then turned
over one of the medals to the Governor who, expressing his thankfulness for the
return of so many of the men, and glorifying the memory of those who rest in
fields of poppies overseas, presented the medal to Lieut. Clyde Slater, who hail
accompanied him to the platform.

In reply. Lieutenant Slater of Orange, who had been selected by the service
men to represent them in receiving the typical medal, declared that the returned
soldiers and sailors deeply appreciated the demonstration in their honor and the
medals presented to them. He said the medals would Ije cherished, and kept
always by the men as souvenirs of the day, expressing to them the fact that in their
