Achievements of the Washington
The Conference on Limitation of Armaments that has been
truejrliriir thru the difficult problem! of international relntitui
ships for the last three months la now ready to present its achieve
ments to the world.
This Conference had distinct advantage over the one vrtiich
met in France after the sitrning of the Armistice. The Versailles
Conference followed immediately in the wake of the bloodiest war
the world ha ever seen one fraught with more international
complication! and disaster than any previous conflict. There were
the obstacle! of fear and hatred and the spirit of revenge and re
prisal to overcome; there were the qld brooding, hitherto hidden
beneath the surface, that were brought out at the strategic mo
ment of this international Conference. The recent Conference
was on a much smaller scale, involving only four of the most in.
tellectual and responsible nations of the world nations whose
prime object ia not militarism, but whose mission In the main
has been the promotion of the rights of humanity. The recent
Conference was three yean removed from the scene of the world's
arrest struggle. Passions have had time to be subdued; animosi
ties to be suppressed; and a war stricken world is in need of re
lief. With the picture of these contrasting situations before us, '
we are able to appreciate the timeliness of the Conference that
baa Just closed.
In the first piece, the Conference established "a policy for the
preservation of peace by mutual respect on the part of the powers
for the rights of each other rather than by a balance maintained
by alliances." There is no hint of an alliance or a guarantee; it
ia a mutual understanding by four leading, responsible powers.
They were quite largely convinced of the absolute uselessness of
n unending compet tion in ship building. They have agrecj to
stop such competition and to fix the relative strength of the navies
of the four grest nstions the United States, England, France,
The Conference has rone on record as opposing unlimited de
velopment and use of submarines and also adopted resolutions for
rendering submarines ineffective by limiting the field of their legit
imate employment It also plsced a ban on the use of poison gas
in war. The great benefits to be derived from the above-listed
achievements are financial and moral. It will lift the burden of
immediate ship-building from the nations and turn millions of
dollars into the legitimate channels of peaceable reconstruction.
So far as the poison gas is concerned, the resolutions only regis
ter the diaappmvsl of nations of their une in warfare, but in case
any nation not a member of the Big Four desires to use poison
gas, there is no way to stop her except by defeating her on the
field of battle. But it is an expression of opiniqn which will have
a moral effect.
The second great list of achievements of the Conference has
to do with the settlement of the Far East questions. Thru the
work of the Conference China has been given the greatest outlook
upon the world that she ever had. Shantung, a Chinese province,
ceded to Japan for a limited time by the peace treaty, has been
returned to China in consideration of certain concessions, includ
ing railroad purchases. The sovereignty and integrity of China has
been recognized, and the honor of all the nations who are parties
in this cor tract ia pledged to the observance of this principle.
There is a matter of interpretation of the compact that ia pro.
roking controversy and ia liable to prove an "Article X" in the
minds of some of our timid statesmen; that is the clause referring
to the island possessions of Japan. If we pledge ourselves to pro
tect the island possessions of Japan, some of the Senators will
maintain that it includes the mainland of Japan, which itself is
an it land. There will be objections to our obligating ourselves to
protect Japan from outside aggression.
President Harding has followed the example of President Wil
son by making a plea before the Senate for the adoption of the
compact We hope there will be no long drawn out conflict and
that those who were defeated in their effort to get the League of
Nstions will get behind the Washingon Treaty as the next best
thing to be secured. It wiU be the greatest step that has ever
'been msde toward that larger relationiJiip which will tend toward
securing the peace of the world.
WORK, TUB GREATEST JOY
One of our correspondents last
week undertook the rather unneces
sary task of proving that play may
be good thing and help in educa
tion. Its benefits were ably set forth
obedience to captain, cooperation
with a team, slf-control in training
and on the field, and a sense of hon
or (when thst is cultivated) and the
liabilities to excel! were passed over.
What we particularly wish to men
tion, however, was the impl ed dis
paragement of work. We asked
tablefull of highly successful peple
which they really enjoyed the most,
work or play, and every one repl'ed,

back, and fragrant woodpile, and
we are in for a sure good time.
"All work and no play .makes Jack
a dull boy." Day must be on the

in selecting, adjusting, getting the

happy and honorable lips until he
knows that work ii the greatest of
joys. We play that we may be ready

WORKER SPEAKS AT
Dr. H. R. DcBra, who spoke to the
college student! on Wednesday morn
ing and address a large audience in
the Methodist Church Wednesday
evening, is one of the d'stingulshed
visitors for whom Berea hat been
grateful this week.
Dr. DeBra, who served at a col
lege president for fifteen yean, is
now under the Centenary of the
Methodist Church, doing an Intensely
interesting jiiece of Americanization
work among the rawest type of our
foreign element The field of his la
bor stretches eastward from Ch'cago
amund the head of the Great Lakes,
covering the steel industry section,
with headquarters at Gary, Indiana,
the great steel center of America.
Gary, Indiana, has a populstion of
2!i0,000 people, seventy-five per cent
of which are of the most foreign of
foreigners. Dr. DeBra is charged
with the problem of finding a way
of approach into the hearts and lives
of these people. He contends that
no program of Americanization is
adequate that does not Involve an in
terpretation, to these people, of the
fundamentals of our religious life.
He makes his approach, first of all,
thru the children of foreigner who
are gathered along with American
children in week day schools of re
ligious institutions. In these schools
the children are taught Bible stories,
ongs and prayers for the purpose of
leading them into the simple mean
ing of our Christian doctrines. Last
year, he reports, that such schools
had an enrollment of 5,700 children,
60 per cent of whom were foreigners.
The children of these schools have
made a great demand for Bibles, so
that they may read the stories .which
they have learned, to their parents,
and the remarkable interest that the
parents have shown in these "new
books'' is one of the encouraging
things in connection with this work.
In addition to this type of work
among foreigners, the Methodist
Centenary is carrying on an im
mense educational program , among
disadvantaged peoples in the moun
tains and elfewhere, and it expects
to expend $4,000,000 during the next
Dr. DeBra is tak'ng a month off
of hit regular work to help report
the progress of these programs, as
he visits among the various churches.
Berea ia indeed fortunate to have
been included in his visits.
