of America," that "this nation will
decay and flally perish when Ameri

relort of the tioint conmission on
home and family life, which will !be
)resented to the-triennial general con

next, has been made public.
"Advanced culture (lid not save past
civilization, did not prevent Germany
plunging into a gulf of infamy. Upon
Amcrica's consecration to God depends
her fate," says the report, which con

States with particular reference to
The commission was appointed 'by
the Episcopal general convention six
years ago, and includes in its person
nel sonie of the most distinguished of
the bishops, clerical and lay members
of the church. Among other subjects
which are frankly treated are those of
marriage, divorce and birth control.
The report contains a strong recom

Rev. Charles Noyes Tyndell, S. T. D.,
of Williamsport, 1Pa., secretary of the
commission, in transmitting the report,

country a vital message in as concise
form as possible.
"Even a cursory glance at conditions
in the average American home reveals
evidence sufficient to warrant the most
careful study of those influences now
affecting these homes from the stand
point of morals and religion," the re

youth, evenl more than the attitude of
the youth, will scarcely bear severe
