Recalling Jhe grim tidal wave and hurricane which snuffed out the lives of hundreds of German and American navy sailors In the harbor of Apia, Samoan Islands, just 38 years ago, eight survivors pf the disaster met at the Boston Yacht Club Saturday to discuss that fatal day. State Commissioner of State Aid and Pensions Richard R. Flynn, W. P. Miles, father of Judge Frankland W. L. Miles; Gen McManus, United States Army, retired; Lieut E. V. Sandstorm president of the Samoan Veterans' Club; E. O. Mathison, executive committee, and Daniel Callahan, Indian war veteran and one of the survivors, were the speakers. The veterans of the disaster were sailors aboard the three American men-o'-war Trenton, Nipsic and Vandalia, lying in the harbor, waiting for expected orders to engage the German war vessels Olga, Eber and Adler, also at anchor there. The Samoan Islands at that time were claimed by Germany, Great Britain and the United States, and feeling was tense among the nations. The hurricane, tidal wave and terrific undertow destroyed the war vessels, drowning almost half of the 1870 sailors who comprised their crews. Later the islands ownership was divided among the three nations.

Park Preaches in Trinity "Can We Learn Christ's Confidence?" was the subject on which Rev Dr Charles E. Park of the First Church in Boston preached this non in Trinity Church in Copley sq. He said that "Christ was a serenely confident soul; His Kingdom of heaven, like the grain of mustard seed, would increase through us uwu geriiuiiauve power unxil ix 5. JZf( REV DR CHARLES E. PARK filled the earth. How long it would take, what form it would assume, just how it would be established, were unimportant. At some time. by some means, the kingdom of God is coming, that was His funda mental confidence. "The question is, can we share that confidence? Can He teach it to us? If not, we are left facing the hardest task that human beings can encounter; the attempt to succeed where the very possibility of success is uncertain. Our human hearts tell there is a vast difference between working in an atomosphere of doubt, and working in an atomo sphere of confidence. In the atomosphere of doubt, every choice be comes ominous, every failure por- tentious, and every mistake fatal. "In an atmosphere of confidence our souls wear a smile of superiority. We say to error and failure: You cannot terrify me; for I am journeying through a land where all roads lead to Rome. I may take the wrong turn. but my mistake is only a prolonga tion of the journey; I may fail in my effort, but my failure is nothing worse than a postponement. "Atmosphere of Doubt" "Every detail of modern life seems to be in a conspiracy to create for us an atmosphere of doubt. The voice of the alarmist is heard on every side, telling us that our economic theory is a mistake, that our democratic institutions will not work, that our religion has not the slightest basis in reality, that our population is increasing in size and deteriorating in quality, that the doom of our civilization is already written in the next war which cannot long be averted, and that our future contains no probability so logical as our complete annihilation. "The honest man has nothing to set against this argument except the example of Christ; nothing except his trust in God and his confidence in God's power and victory. And when we demand proof that Christ's trust was justified, the honest man is bound to say there is no proof; God cannot be proved to the mind; confidence in God's purpose cannot be based upon what we call evidence. OBSERVES BIRTHDAY OF JANE DELANO Red Cross Honors Founder of Nursing Service The Boston Metropolitan Chapter of the American Red Cross announces that the Red Cross throughout the country is joining in revering the memory of Jane Delano, f founder of the American Re.d Cross Nursing Service, through observance of Delano Week, which begins today. Born in 1862 in Townsend. Schuyler County, N Y, she was the first director and chairman of the Red Cross Nursing Service. Miss Delano died in France in 1919, as the result of arduous and exhausting work in the line of her chosen duty. Admiral Cary T. Grayson, chair man of the American Red Cross in Washington, said today: "The anni versary of Miss Delano's birth can receive no greater tribute to her achievements than the work of the thousand and more Red Cross nurses now in the field who are following her fine example of public service." Recently a supreme test came and the structure upon which Miss Delano labored so devotedly was not found wanting, as there was no epidemic in the Mississippi and Ohio valleys, following flood waters which engulfed the homes of a million persons. One great service that has already been rendered by the nursing service in the flood area has been immunizing from typhoid, diphtheria, and other diseases a total of almost 800,000 men, women and children.

The honest man has nothing more than that to promise. Confidence in God is our one and only salvation, and there is only one way to secure it: to follow the example of Christ and all his great brotherhood; to make our wager; to take that desperate jump in the dark, 'Lord, I believe; help Thou mine unbelief.' "The moment we do that, the atmosphere clears. The smile comes back to our faces. The laughter is again heard in our souls. We may fail, but God cannot fail. We may wander and lose our v.'ay, but God will turn our very wanderings to our own advantage, and bring us safely home at the last. And when God's children can live in that atmosphere of confidence, nothing can defeat them."
