ISA, *i2-4t Itifl-lOl 19!2S.»Hj Acts 11 »M- 28; Kph. 4:4.6) 13-10; John 4:20,tl. World peace has been tho one subject challenging every man and evety nation. Of course It challenges people in many ways; it Is received in many attitudes. Many still laugh at it, ridicule It, and some hate It. World peace seems a simple thing, a reasonable thing, apd to many It is a fond dream. Many see it through agony, tears, heartache, devastation ot life and morale, national bankruptcy, demorali- sation among world. the nations of the Complex—We forget many ramifications, we forget Its many enemies, we forget It touches life In many places, we forget it touches the pocket-books of many. The Shearer case should prove that. If Mr. Shearer could, as he was charged, Influence a great conference against limited armament, is It a commentary on those who wero on the Inside and could not Influence the conference for world peace? Enemies of peace: Ignorance, Hate, Suspicion, Greed, Selfishness, Lawlessness, Race hatred, Distrust, Competition, Militarism, National superiority, Misunderstanding, politics. Hindrances of Peace. Universal peace depends In a sense on local peace. Peace—where is It? No land seems to have it. Look at Russia, China, Italy, Germany,..Spain, Avabia, Palestine, India, Egypt, South America, Mexico. There is a political war in town, city state, and nation. The church is having difficulty In Ha- own ranks. Business has little or rlo peace, that is surg: The most sacred place is where we take oath at the marriage altar, but look at the divorce courts! . ; . World peace—how will we attain It? Who. will bring It about? Will statecraft bring it with its political strategy, treaties, world court, League of Natlbns, international law, peace pacts? The history of political strategy is marked all th« way with blood. We pray for peace and pay for arnv amerits. The pipe of peace may be only a smoke screen. Will disarmament do it? We atlll have the airplane* and £a«. W))) science do it? Robert Mlllikan, th6 great physicist, says, "The World war was milltrism's last stand against the advance of science." Yet science brought the modern battleship, the submarine, the airplane, poison -gas, dirigibles, etc. What will do it? Christianity? Vou say It failed. Bernard Shaw says "Christianity has never been tried." The prophet Isaiah says, "It will come and swords shall be beaten into plowshares. It shall come and God will rule in the great city of Jerusalem, and truth shall flow into all the earth until truth covers the earth as the water covers the sea." Then we shall change battleships to friendships and parade In garments of peace, • carrying a .palm instead of a gun. Every man will treat every other maft as a brother and we shall share with others instead of taking everything from others, Cooperation shall take th«. place of competition I Jesus intimates in John 4 that the walls of, social life will fall when the political' barriers are broken down, when the religious prejudices and Intolerances shall. get its . death blow. Then we learn from Paul that ignorance shall be -swallowed up In truth, rape hatred shall -die at the altaiC of universal brotherhood. (Acts 17:22-. 28) . Haw will It come? When vrtll it'come?. Somu say at once, that war must never lift its head again, or better ita heads, for they are 'many. (I named them as enemies of world peace). As long as greed, graft, selfishness are alive, the dove of peace will fear to light though tired with its long flight looking for peaceable ground. Some say it will only come when Jesus comes again to establish His kingdom and answer our prayer: . . .

Hatch of Altoona, have been invited to participate on Thursday, Nov. 14., tn the dedication of the College o£ Preachers of Washington cathedral. Designed to stimulate the Christian ministry by providing post-ordination training in the art of preaching, tha College of Preachers is the .first in* atitutton of its nature to be eatab- lished In the United States and Its dedication is regarded as a significant step in present day religious endeavor. . Rt. Rev. Franlt Theodore Woods* bishop of Winchester, England, will have a prominent part in the exer- clsea as will Rt. .Rev. James H, Freeman, bishop of Washington, under whose direction this, unique institution, has come into being. Members of the house of bishops of th« Protestaht Episcopal Church .in America, who are .to meet at Washington cathedral on the day pz-evloils f6r """ election of a presiding bishop also': be in attendance. • Erection of the building to bo oc-t cupied by the College of Preacher* wad made possible through benefactions of the late Alexander Smith Cochran of Yonkers, N. Y,,; It is * collegiate gothic structure, situated on Mount. Saint Alban immediately east of the apse of Washington cathedral, and is a memorial to the donor's mother, the late Mrs. William F. Cochran. The benefactor gave 1400,000 for the building, its furnishings, its chapel and its landscaping; and bequeathed $1,000,000 as an. endow-- ment fund'for .the support of its-activities: 'Although its permanent home is yet to be' opened, the College of Preachers has been functioning for mora than five yeara. It has sponsored many important conferences which have been attended by members of the clergy and laity from virtually every state. These gatherings hava been devoted/ to many phases of th« Christian ministry and are believed to have been most effective. In' the future the College of Preachers ia expected, to operate even mora advantageously as a means of helping carry the Gospel message beyond tha. confines of parishes and congregations, to the millions in the country who ate out of touch with organized. Chrl$tiap- ity. Rt. Rev. Philip M. Rhirielarider, former bishop of. Pennsylvania, is tha warden and as a trustee of the cathedral, the Colic haa . been associated < -with of Preachers in its tentative work during the last five yeara in advance of its new .building ,and endowment. ..' \. . .

In a few 1 days H will be full and in its height of beauty and splendor. The thought comes .to. him that as one is born into this material form he grows and grows .in stature Just as that full moon. But size means nothing. He is either full of Love or Hate. Which are you? "Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter?"
