FRIDAY, April 27, 1934. The SPEAKER of the House of Representatives presided. The Chaplain, Dr. Montgomery:

Almighty God, unto whom all hearts are open, all desires known, and from whom no secrets are hid, cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of Thy Holy Spirit that we may perfectly love Thee and worthily magnify Thy holy name. Amen.

The Interstate Chorus sang Break, Break, Break.”

Rev. ZeBarney T. Phillips, D.D., Chaplain of the Senate, read the Scripture lesson of the service.

The Chaplain, Dr. Montgomery:

Eternal and ever-living God, our Father, we art met by common impulse to do honor to those servants of the public whose achievements have become a part of our Nation's history. We are grateful that their memory remains and that its influence becomes a benediction. We entreat Thee, our Father, to glorify this service by the presence of the Holy Spirit that we may be exalted, ennobled, and purified. We rejoice that we are born to a higher destiny and that there is a realm where the rainbow never fades. Strengthen us that we may cling to our faith; it will stand by us in the dying hour, in the flood, and in the dark of night. Grant, O Lord, as we look today into the future, may we have a heart for any fate that is unaffected by either laughter or tears. We pray Thee that we may pass from glory into glory until we are transformed into the complete image of the Divine. In this solemn moment we pause. Thou Savior
