ays Peace Jiust Begin Now in U. S'. DCS Moines--The arms America as forged for this war represent IB price of victory--but it is not ,ie price of peace. America is as [inprepared now for peace as it ,f as' a few years ago for war. Cleo V. Blackburn, superintendent of [tanner House, Negro social serv- le center in Indianapolis, Ind., irew this challenging theme into ic 2nd of 10 sessions of the Drake oference on, "The Church and New World Mind." \ddressing the 300 delegates 1,000 students attending the dnesday m o r n i n g meeting, ckburn. said there was no ger any doubt that we would n the war, but that the end of war would not bring peace. Instead, the United States will :ome the most feared nation in world. As the greatest mili- y power in the world, she may ce the place Germany has held r the past 75 years--the threat the other nations, the nation to se alliances against. If there is to be peace," said ckburn, "it must begin with us we must be willing to pay price. Before we can teach the rid, we must learn the way at me. Peace begins at home--and lere is the beginning?" ie said that the price of en- ring peace is very high and that present the people of no na- tion--ours or any other--is willing to pay the price. The price is this: That no person's standing shall depend on'economic or social positions, on family, color, creed or any other entrenched standard-but solely on his ability under fair and impartial opportunity, to contribute to the progress of mankind.
