World Aflame Without Pe?
Says President Wilson.
Couer D'Alene,\ Idaho, Sept. 1
A world again aflame with war
less the peace treaty is accepted
pictured by President Wilson
America was face to face, he
dared, with a decision as to whe
she "would prove to the world
she meant what she said in pro
ing to aid in a peace confei*ence
Making his only address in
home state of Senator Borah, on
the bitterest opponents of thc tre
the prsident spoke in a big tent
was not filled. D. W. Davis, gove]
of Idaho, introduced Mr. Wi'
while the crowd stood and cheer?
While he could understand ^
men might differ as to details of
treaty, Mr. Wilson said, he
"amazed" that some men wanted
reject it altogether. It was Araei
who saved the world, he declai
and now it was proposed in sc
quarters to "desert the world."
The Austrian Treaty.
The forthcoming with Aust
said the president, would be dra
"along exactly the same lines"
that with Germany and would be
other step in the effort to prev
another attempt at conquest.
He asserted the field for futi
conquest lay directly to the east
" Germany and that Germany aires
was negotiating with the bolshe\
movement of Russia in the hope
finding soil there for industrial a
It was the peace treaty with
league of nations covenant he .
serted which alone could prevent 1
success of such a plan.
"Germany wants us to stay out
this treaty," said the president. "h
under a delusion that we would se
to aid her but with the knowled
that that guarantees would not
sufficient without America. S
wants to see America alienated frc
the great powers from which s
herself has been alienated.
"The pro-German propaganda h
started in this country confide
with the opposition to the adopti
of this treaty.
Are We Enemies?
"Are we going to prove the en
my of the rest of the world ju
when we have been its savior? Tl
thing is intolerable. It is impossible
Mr. Wilson said if the west real
believed in progressivism and pun
cation of political affairs then
must be in favor of the peace trea
so it could be accomplished.
Referring again to the Eostcn p
lice strike, Mr. Wilson said the stril
was an intolerable crime against ci
"If that spirit is going to preva:
where are your programs?" he as.
"How can you carry a progra:
out where every man is looking cu
for his own selfish interest?"
He declared there would be no n
form for a generation unless thei
came a settled order such as cou)
be attained only by the treaty. Ever
man who really loves justice an
purposes reform, he said, shoul
stand in favor of unqualified accei
tance of the treaty.
Declaring there were a "grea
many things to be reformed i
America," the president said th
United States was in danger of fal]
ing under the control of the minori
World of Chaos.
"If you want to live in a world o
chaos," he continued, "then speak J
word of encouragement to those wh(
are opposing this treaty."
If he did not do everything honor
able to secure unqualified acceptant
of the treaty, said Mr. Wilson, hi
could not look in the face of th<
mothers who had given sons in thi:
war in order that there might be nc
future wars. When the next greal
war came, he said, as it surely woulci
come if the treaty failed, America
certainly would get in.
Repeating his previous exposition
of the arbitration clauses of the
league, Mr Wilson pointed out that
congress had authorized him some
years ago to try to secure an inter
national peace concert.
"And now they don't like it," he
continued. "There is only one con
ceivable reason for their not iiking
it-and to me, as an American, it is
not a conceivable reason-and that
is that the United States desires to
do some great power harm."
Should reservations be included in
senate ratification of the treaty,
said the president, then the consent
of Germany again would have to be
asked. He declared there was no lan
guage in the treaty capable of mis
, construction. Reservations had been
proposed, he asserted which would
open the whole negotiations again
merely to have the nations accept in
new language the same things they
had already acepted.

Now that the larger liberties enjoyed
by peoples everywhere, following the
close of the world war, have revealed

portunity for the spread of the gospel

In cash and five-year subscriptions be

hope of making a worthy beginning
toward supplying this world need.

paign, the actual drive for the funds

Of Richmond, Va., Secretary of For
eign Missions for the Southern Bap
to be made during Victory Week, No
vember 30-Deccmber 7, $43.000,000 will
be devoted to missions, and $20,000.000
of this sum will be devoted to enlarg
ing the work on the ten important
foreign fields occupied already and to
opening up new fields where countless
millions of people have not yet heard
the story of Jesus Christ.
/ ''a, Africa, Latin America (Includ
lng Tico as T?-ell as South America),
and europe are the four continents ia
which the missionaries of Southern1
Baptists are operating today but in all
of the ten countries of these conti
nents, Southern Baptists have only 316
missionaries, 787 native workers, 192
o.' whom are ordained, 12 foreign phy
sicians 6 foreign trained nurses. 21 na
tive physicians and 23 native nurses
"Our missionaries already on the
field have wrought wonderfully for the
Master, considering the difficulties
they have bad to confront," Dr. J. F.
Love, secretary of foreign missions,
declares, "but we at home have not
supported them as we ought with help
ers of all kinds and with schools, hos
pitals and other agencies to enable
them* to do a larger work in everyway.
The smallness of the work we have
done already can be realized when we
look at the \ast number of people who
have not been reached in the foreign
fields we are occupying today. China,
for instance, has a population four
times that of the United States, or one
fourth the population of the entire
world, and our force lhere consists of
only 65 men, f?'? married women, 49
unmarried women 54 ordained natives
and 420 unordained native helpers.
Japan, which has half as many people
as the United States, is being served
by 9 men, 8 married women, 3 unmar
ried women, li ordained natives and 6
unordained native helpers. In Italy
there are a third as many people as
there are in the United States, yet we
have there only 2 men, 2 married wom
en, 35 ordained natives, and 3 unordain
ed native helpers. Mexico has 10,000.000
people, and we have in that country
and on the border a missionary force
consisting of ll men, ll married wom
en, 3 unmarried women, 24 ordained
natives and 15 unordained native help
ers. Argentina has a population of
8,000,000, and our missionary force
there consists of 7 men, 7 married
women, 14 ordained natives, and 7 un
ordained native helpers. In Africa,
we have entered only one state, that
cf Nigeria, but this state has a popu
lation of 20 000,000. and to serve those
people we have only 7 men mission
aries, 6 r>".arried women, 3 unmarried
women, 3 ordained natives and 52 un
ordained native helpers. Brazil has a
territory larger than all the United
Ctates and a population of 50,000.000.
Serving those people we have a force
of 54 men, 33 mirried women, 2 un
married women, 'J9 ordained natives,
and 52 unordained native helpers. Our
work in Chile, where there are 3,000,
000 people, is only two years old. but
we have 12 churches, and 15 out-sta
tions, in which last year there were
122 baptisms. We need at least
200 more missionaries now and from
the proceeds of this campaign wo hope
to ?irpky .hem and then equip them
and those on the field already for do
toe the largest work for the Master."
