The first fruits of her work will come to life April 24. when Hu manity International . Inc opens the first Humanity House in Troy.! X. Y. The idea behind Humanity! international is that it should be-! come eventually a round-the-1 world organization whose aim is j to foster and quicken friendship! between peoples of difterent coun-; tries with the belief that, if united, they can become a moral power ! of such irresistible force that they , can prevent war. Humanity House' m Troy is the laboratory in which j experiments on how to achieve its aim can be made. Miss Browne hopes it will be the first of many to be established in the United States and in the world. “We believe the United Nations organization is not enough to es tablish alone stability and peace,” she said on a recent New York j visit. “If it is to succeed, there! j will have to be behind it millions j of uniied individuals, — house wives. butchers, bakers, bankers. I teachers, mothers, cr‘. all races ' and creeds. We think the people I of the world are not helpless to | prevent war if they are united and 1 that they have to accept responsi I bilitv in this matter.” j I Humanity. International has a | tentative five-point program to! | begin with: 1. International correspondence j between people ot different coun | :ries. ! 2. Exchange of practical indivi j dual gifts. | 3. Visual education through books, pictures, etc. 4. The use of two languages in every letter, even if one is used cnly in salutation. 5. Goodwill travel in foreign countries given to those who have done outstanding work in the or ganization. The organization is run at pres ent by an American National Board including Gregor Ziemer. author and educational director of New York Town Hall, Inc., who is co-chairman with Miss Browne; Paul Kellog, editor of the Survey i... . _ MARY K. BROWNE . . . "You just ktip ' ting the ball.’’ Graphic: Helen Hall, director of the Henry Street Settlement, New York, and Mrs. C. Reinold Noyes, president of the National League of Women Voters. If the Troy ex periment leads to future chapters elsewhere, it is expected that they will be run by local committees, approved by the National Board and in constant contact with them. Humanity International will he ! financed by "pennies for peace" from the people and by larger in dividual contributions. Says Miss Browne, in summing up her aim: “The main idea be hind Humanity International is Ithis: If you can get an American to make friends with a Pole and a Korean with a Chinese, for in stance, and if these learn each Dther’s ideas, hopes, fears and; troubles, they are bound to get a uetier understanding of one an other. If you do this on a large! enough scale, they will gradually come to feel that they are not, first of all. Americans. Poles. Ko reans or Chinese, but that they are. first of all, members 'of one group — humanity — and that! they share a surprising number of the same ideas, hopes, fears and problems. “Hammer away on this line Tit . - -- long enough and they may come lo the place where it seems as far fetched to Americans, for in stance. to go to war with Poles as it would to Virginians to go to war with the people of Massa chusetts. which they once did. “In a sense you might say that it is the same system sportsmen i use to win a game. I learned long j ago that the way to win was not ; to worry about the whole game. I but just to keep on hitting the ball and sending it back.” .. ’ ... -»SY m SHOES \rOR EASTER! ^MEN!
