"Water 1$ Your Cheapest Commodity" President's Appeal for Prayer Pierces Iron Curtain DENVER (AP) — President Eisenhower appealed today to the people of Russia and other Iron Curtain countries to join Americans tomorrow in a day of prayer for world peace as "the true cure" for war-breeding tensions. In a message beamed to the Soviet Union and its satellites over the powerful .racno facilities of the Voice of America, the President said: "May the world be ringed with an 'act of faith so strong as to annihilate the cruel, artificial barriers erected by little men between the people who seek peace on earth through the Divine Spirit." •Voice of America, transmitters began broadcasting Eisenhower's appeal worldwide at 6 a.m., EST, today—with special emphasis on reaching people of the Iron Curtain countries. The National Day of Prayer for Peace being observed in the United States tomorrow was provided for in a resolution passed by Congress and approved by the President. j Eisenhower himself will attend i chapel services at Lowry Air Force Base here tomorrow morning to pray for peace. Here is the text of the Presi- ' dent's new plea directed particularly to the peoples of the Iron urtain nations: "In common with religious people everywhere, we in America know that the true. cure for the tensions that threaten and too often produce war lies not in guns and bombs but in the spirits and "minds of men. We are firm in the belief that faith is the mightiest force that man has at his command. "On September «2nd we are therefore observing, with an act of faith, a , National Day of Prayer. Throughout the United Stataes of America, whatever our ancestry, whatever our religious affiliation, we shall offer simultaneously to the Almighty our personal prayer* the devotion, wisdom and stamina to work unceasingly for a just and lasting peace for all mankind. •'I most earnestly hope that men and women, boys and girls all over the world will join with us that day in that act of faith. May the many millions of people shut away from contact and communion with peoples of the free world join their prayers with ours. /'May the world be ringed with an act of faith so strong as to annihilate the cruel, artificial barriers erected by little men between the peoples who seek peace on earth through the Divine Spirit."
