Henry Knox Shcr- rill was installed yesterday us "presiding bishop of the Protc.sliint Episcopal Church of the United States with a plea to Christinas to hel|> world peace by living up to their faith. "Let us have done with easy *>(UK. thoughtless complacency,'' he told the 2500 persons who crowded Washington Cathedral for the ceremonies. "Tlie world must find evidence of the presence of Christ in the membership of the Christian Church, 1 ' he said. "The first task Is to see that we and all who arc of the church arc Christian." Turning to domestic matters in his installation address, hn -said that when the war-born need for cooperation removed "we revert lo selfish alms nnd objectives." Sherrill cited "evidences of ugly racial a ml religious intolerance." the-"alarming" increase in the divorce rate and the "widespread problem or juvenile delinquency" stemming from broken homes. "Deeper than all of these outward signs." he said, "is to be found a growing spirit of secularization evident in the atmosphere of our homes, our schools, our colleges, our personal lives." Church, government and dlpti- mnlic leaders attended the colorful installation ceremonies. There were more than 100,000 miles of international boundaries throughout the world at the outbreak of World Wnr II. Auto License Sales Bring in Million Plus LITTLE ROOK. Ark. Jan. 15.
