Mr. ·ponded with the following story) : · · · By JOfiEPHUS DANIELS RALEIGH, N. C., May 19.-- m-- My recollection is that the enthusiasm and determination for a world peace covenant were more manifest in 1918, particulr- ly around the premature and real Armistice Day, than they are as the day of deliverance cheers the people now. I vividly recall that Thanksgiving observances in 1918, only a few days after the Armistice had been signed, witnessed an outpouring of the people in the churches and in other gatherings, that prayers were offered everywhere that a warless world would follow the fighting. I recall that I spoke to a great union meeting in Buffalo and never have I felt more unity and confidence that the forthcoming peace conference would fashion · way to end all wars. About the same time I spoke at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine In New York where the people were quite as earnest and zealous in expressing their determination that the fruits of war should be garnered In lasting peace. The sentiment in these two cities was expressed In like manner from coast to coast as the reverberation of the guns in France ceased. · The proof that history repeats Itself is seen in the overwhelming public opinion favoring * world organization to insure peace. Sentiment today parallels that which lifted people to the heights after the signing of the Armistice November 11, 1918. The attitude of the people then and now is as alike as two black- eyed peas. The only discordant note then came in the round robin that Senator Lodge and 33 other senators sent to Paris when Woodrow Wilson was sweating blood to secure the adherence of his European colleagues to the immortal pact be brought home and gave to the senate for ratification in July 1919. Th« welcome given to Wilson on his arrival by his countrymen was as sincere and enthusiastic as that which he received in Rome which surpassed any event in European history. And it came from the heart of the people of ail parties and creeds as it is now. The dissenters then were unorganized; there was no hint of the propaganda, or the organized opposition of aliens, protectionists, partisans and isolationists who were later to help Lodge, and Reed sabotage the.league In the senate. Let us take a look at the record as It Is found in the newspapers of 1919. At first, league opponents avowed their eternal devotion to the goal, all except Senator Borah, an upright, downright and forthright isolationist who 'fought it in the open. Lodge, the Republican, and Reed, the Democrat, whose hostility compassed "the deep damnation of its taking off" swore they wished a peace pact above all earthly things, but said they felt It needed a little doctoring to make it perfect. Soliciting Borah's co-operation, Lodge told him that he knew most of the newspapers, the preachers, the educators, those accustomed to write and speak, and "the man in the street" favored the league as- presented by Wilspn but, he argued, when they were educated as to the need of reservations, its ratification could be prevented. So he played for time and kept a treaty that ought to have been acted upon In a few 'days before the senate before he applied the deadly dagger that did its fatal work. This gave time for the opponents with their millions to organize the elements w h i c h helped senators to compass the rejection of the league. Senator Jim Watson, of Indiana, records in his autobiography that he said to Lodge: "Senator, I don't see how we are going to defeat this proposition. It appears to me that 80 per cent of the people are for it. Fully that percentage of the preachers are advocating it. Churches are very largely favoring it, all the people who have been burdened and oppressed by this awful tragedy of war and who Imagine this opens a way to world peace are for it, and I don't see how It is possible to defeat it." Watson added that Lodge turned to him and said, "Ah, my Dear James, I do not propose to try to direct frontal attack, but by the indirect methods of reservations." "What do you mean by that" Watson says he asked "Illu*- tntte it to me" and Wptson goes on to say:. "Lodge then went on to explain how, for instance, we would demand a reservation on the subject of submitting our government the assumption of a mandate over Armenia, or any other foreign country. 'We can debate that for days and hold up the dangers that it will involve and the responsibilities we will assume if we propose that course, and we can thoroughly satisfy the coun- try that would be a most abhorrent policy for us to adopt.. "Senator Lodge then went on for two hours to explain other reseivations and went into the details of situations that would be thus evolved, until I became thorougly satisfied that the treaty could be beaten in that way." And that was the way Lodge and his followers kept us out of th« peace as a perusal of the proceedings of the senate shows. As the senate debated and wasted time, the high protection money got in its perfect work. Many good people were misled and thus, while not wholly responsible for world War II, Lodge and the rest made it possible by seeing to it that the United States was AWOL at Geneva. One day while the senate was dawdling over action on the treaty I chanced to meet Senator Warren G. Harding in the rotunda of the capitol. Association with him in his capacity as a member of the senate committee on naval affairs, caused me to venture to show him an Ohio paper I tiad in my hand contain- ner SERVICE RECORD Local Radioman Awarded Medal for Meritorious Conduct at Bastogne Sgt.

Abused, exploited, despised, they are now emancipated. Long and bloody was the road to independence. The rich held the farming land and lived in "haciendas" or large plantation homes. The poor men have come to their own, they own the land. The plantations have been split up and divided to them. As we drove along, the guide often said "Here President So-and-So had his hacienda, but it is divided now." Miles of citrus and fruit orchards have been planted since then. Best of all they are projected and owned by farmers themselves, who were once poor. Even the steep mountains are cultivated in crazy-quilt sections, the elevation ranging from 45 to 50 degrees. It is said they tie themselves to trees for safety. Education One is surprised at. tne number of school buildings recently erected, well-built and beautiful. Along the great highways they are seen, finished in pastel colors, blue, cream, lemon, rose. They complain "But we have no mnestros, no efficient teachers." They are hard to obtain for so many new schools. John Dewey came down from Columbia university and gave them a better system. They are like a boy who has outgrown his coat sleeves.

In these small centers it. has never been done before, and the obstacles are great.

Five times I preached and was not jailed, as I would have been a few years before. Cardenas and his sudk cessor Camacho, are lenient towatm Protestant ministers.
