World Peace Rests
On Spiritual Basis,
Sav British Rulers
Premiers of Empire Tell
Laymen's Conference All

S ii h s e r v i e n t to God
PITTSBURGH, Feb. I. A proclama
tion, signed by Premier Llo.vd George
and the Premiers of Canada, South
Al'riea, Nowfoundland, Xew Zealand and
Australia, wns read to-night by Dr.
S. E.-irl Taylor, of New York, to the
laymen'a national conference.
The proclamation, which Pr. Ta*,!or
said was received to-day, was addressed
to "Our Fellow Citizens of the British
Empire." It declare* that neither edu?
cation, science, diplomacy nor commer?
cial prosperity, when allied with a be
lief in material force as the ultimate
power. are real foundations for the or?
dered development of the world'a life.
"These things," the proclamation
said, "are in themselves simply the
tools of the spirit that handle- them.
"Even the hope that lies before the
world of a life of peace, protected and
developed by a league of nations, is
itself dependent upon something
deeper and more fundamental still,"
the proclamation continued. "The
cooperation which the ioa<;uo of
nations explicitly aims to foster will
become operative insofar as the con
sonting peoples have the spirit of good
will, and the spirit of good will among
men rests on spiritual forces; tho hope
of a brotherhood ol" humanity reposes
on the deeper spiritual fact of the
'fatherhood of God'."
The sure basis of world peace rest-*
upon acceptance of those spiritual
principles, the proclamation said. "We
would therefore commend," it added,
"the necessity that men of -^ood will,
who are everywhere reviewing their
personal responsibility in relation to
' the reconstruction 01" civilization, .should
c consider aiso the eternal validity and
truth of those spiritual forces which
are in fact the one hope for a perma?
nent foundation for world peace."
At the day session of the conference
Dr. Taylor made an address in which
, he declared that reconstruction of the
, moral foundation in South Ameriea was
necessary if business men of the United
States were to trade successfully with
; countries of that continent.
Pioneers who went to South Ameriea,
he said, "went for gold, not for God,"
and as a result there is a lack of
moral foundation, which lack makes
large crediting, such as, v/ould be nec?
essary to big business, impossible.
Educational institutions, supported by
the missionary boards of the churches,
were offered by Dr. Taylor as the most
vital factor ia overcomir.g the moral
"The entire jrroup of twenty Latin
! Amer.can countries." he said, "spends
only as much on education of all kinds
as the City of New York spends on its j

announced that organization of *h?
thousands of men and women who will
aid in raising the $1,320,000,000 budget
of the interchurch world movement *?as
already under way.
A plea for better support of foreign
missions was made by Jamea M. Speer,
of N'?'w York, who said many miflRi'on
anes with years of scientific training
i were receiving less pay than laborers
, in Ameriea.
Dr. Wise Urges College

Where Rich Boys Pass tiie

Too many colleges in Ameriea are

In criticizing the boards of trustees
thal in many cases dominate the entire
life of a university, Dr. Wise said he
did not beheve these groups of men
would act in any way but for whal they
believed to he for the best, but he
pointed out that they might and could
work for evil if they so desired.
Dr. Wise also found fault with the
lack of supervision exercised over stu?
dents in many institutions of leai
One of the w orst th ngs in coHege life
to-day was, he said, the fact that
young ni">i are taken from homes
where they have b?en carefully nur
tured in right ideahs and suddei :;.
thrown into a state of utter ;.* *;..
. checked fraedom which in many cases
leads to disaster.
Co'.lepes here in the East, the minis
ter said, had become in many i ises
merely places where rich boys might
loaf for four years. Some colleges, he
continued, have begun to adopt a
selectiye style of accepting students.
j He said he would suggost that they
also begin an unselective evacuation of
. all loafers of whatever degree.
