Warburg Makes Plea For European Relief Says \ccds Can Be Met Only hy Cooperative Kruteavor of .ill American Organizations Felix M. Warburg, in a Thar.V?giving statement issued last night, expressed his hearty approval of the cooperation - with the European Relief Council of j all the larger American relief organi- . zations to meet the needs abroad. Mr. V* arburg said : "It is, of course, highly desirable j that Mr. Hoover's appeal for funds for; the children of Europe, made with the ; aid fit The Literary Digest, meet with every success and' go over the top. The problem, however, confronting the' I copie of the United States, if they would afford to the children, ihe des-i titu.te' and ill of Europe, any com-! mens?rate aid, is beyond the ability : or the resources of any one, or even j several. American relief organizations j at tins time. "The effort now made, therefore, to combine the interest in, and the pos? sibility for achievement o? such! organizations as the American Relief | Administration, the Red Cross, Fed-j eral Council of Churches >f Christ,; the Society of Friends, Kniphts of Columbus, V. M. C. A., the Joint Dis- ! tribution Committee and other agencies in Europe, is one which should have the support of all Americans. ? relief problem in Europe will be of long duration. The child life must he saved, and this, together with the, questions of sanitation and medical care constitutes a herculean task. "The people of the United States, no tl an the people of Europe, owe a large deb: to Mr. Hoover for the ous energy, the great heart and, ifinite pains he has taken in car-; .- - abroad the pracm;al evidence of America's sympathy and kind-hearted? ness. Through his broad-mindedness it of the men unselfishly labor ing in behalf of the Red Cross and the other organizations, the amalgamation , oJ effort lias been made possible.'' Dr. Howard C. Robins, at the service ye ?terday in St. John's Cathedral, re- ' ferred to this as a sad Thanksgiving be? cause of the agonizing appeals that are coming from overseas. He said he hoped God would aid in reawakening his and speed the day when a would take her full part in bringing about the union and peace of -. .? world. 11? referred to Mr. Hoover as the ful- ', fillment of the universal man who would not keep his substance, but :' tht man who would subordi? na! plenty in one quarter to the call I in another.

Prosperous America Owes Effort Toward Peace, Says Pastor Christian Nation Despite Its Critics, Asserts Dr. Harley, I?ut Must Join Society to Obliterate World Strife "At a recent meeting of the Board of Education in this city it was said that this is not a Christian country. We fling this lie in their cheeks," said the Rev. Harmon R. Harley, pastor of the Fort George Presbyterian Church, 174th Street and Broadway, at which six churches of the Fort Wash? ington district joined in a union ser? vice yesterday. There was a record attendance. "This is a Christian country," con? tinued the Rev. Mr. Harley. "Spiritu? ally a? well as geographically, we are founded upon a rock and for this we have cause to be thankful to-day. At the beginnig of the. seventeenth cen? tury, out of the hardening shell of Puritanism, there stepped forth a fresh young spirit which gave promise of great possibilities. Three hundred years ago this week in the cabin of the Mayflower was signed the compact which breathes out that spirit of ?mancipation and freedom. That com? pact began with the words, 'In the name of Cod, amen,' an?! this was the real, hona fide beginning of American his? tory. 1 believe that we are true to the ideals shown in that compact signed on the Mayflower." Can't Ignore Obligations Mr. Harley said that while the nation has reason to be grateful for the ma? terial prosperity it enjoys and the im? provement of the physical health of the American people as exemplified in official reports, this nation is to-day confronted with national and interna? tional obligations which it cannot ig? nore. . "The world is in the throes of new international relations," said Mr. Har? ley, "and there is reason to hope that the civilized world will yet get to? gether on some friendly basis a3 the seasons follow each other. The Kaiser tried to bring the Cid World under one government by military force and prop? erly failed. Bolshevism has the same dream, but it is sure to fall also be? cause of its negation of Almighty God, its slur on the home as the fundamental basis of society and its idea that the end justifies the means." Referring to the League of Nations and the efforts now being made by ?epresentatives of forty-one nations at Geneva to put it on a solid foundation, Mr. Harley said that the United States must join it and accord it full-hearted cooperation. "We must subscribe ourselves whole? heartedly to this effort," said Mr. Har? ley. "There is new interest for Amer? ica in the affairs of the world. The cynical may say that the other nation? want us in the league for what they can get out of us, but one might as well say that the Puritans came tc these shores for the rich farms and mineral wealth of the country, which we know is false. What the worlc wants from America to-day is tht spirit, of freedom, and America wil; not fail it. What God has pr?serv?e in America, America will yet give tc the world." Puritan Spirit Lives The spirit of the Puritans gave t< this country lives, the speaker said and will continue to live with ever increasing force and will facilitate greatly the solution of the complex political, economic and social problems facing this country. The churches participating in the service were: Chelsea Methodist Epis? copal. Fort George Presbyterian, Fort Washington Collegiate, Fort Washing? ton Presbyterian, Second United Pres? byterian and Wadsworth Avenue Bap? tist. The pastors of nil these churchei* assisted in the service. There was an exceptionally beautiful music program. ? Wallace ?Says Bolsheviki Would Destroy America U. S. Ambassador Tells French Nation Is Monument to Every? thing Condemned by Reds PARIS, Nov. 25.-? Hugh C. Wallace, the American Ambassador, speaking at the American Club's Thanksgiving din? ner in this city to-day, declared the United States was a monument to every? thing condemned by the Bolsheviki and that they were seeking to destroy the American republic. He alluded feelingly to the cheerful? ness and earnestness of the crippled and blinded men of France, the widowed women and orphaned children. "All France is at work," Mr. Wallace said, "and they work with the rest, looking forward to the d?y when in peace she shall enjoy her victory." Touching upon German reparations, the Ambassador said: "Man must pay for his wars, not only during the strife itself, but afterwards. He can? not recall the lives he has taken, but he must replace the things he has destroyed. When he batters down a city it is for him to rebuild it, and when in the mad fury we know as wi*r he has devastated smilingly fields he must restore them. . . . Why should not those, who devastated the fair prov? inces of France be compelled to pay and thus show succeeding generations that with nations as well as with men 'As ye sow, so shall ye reap.' " ? Army's "Paper Work" Cut Changes Approved by Baker to Save Material and Labor WASHINGTON, Nov. 25.-?Changes in the correspondence work of the army designed to save paper and eliminate unnecessary labor were announced to? day by Adjutant General Harris as hav? ing b?en approved by Secretary Baker. The changes, which were described as drastic, follow the recommendations of a hoard of officers which investigated the "paper work" of the army. Present army regulations require that all communications relating to personnel such as transfers, dis? charges, leaves and the like, must be transmitted through all intermediate officers to the officer who takes final action, and after such action is taken must go down the long line again, in both travels each of the officers being required to have an indorsement pre? pared, typewritten in triplicate, record? ed and filed in his office. The changes approved by Mr. Baker eliminate many of the intermediate officers and permit the use of stamped indorsements. Excitement Kills Football Fan DENVER, Nov. 25.-?William F. Sur ber, thirty-eight years old, fell dead from excitement to-day at a football game when Fred Harsh, of the South Denver High School team, run ninety yards for a touchdown. Pastor Assails Ford For Alleged Drive A ? Against the Jews The Rev. John H. Holmes Also Denonnees Program of Presbyterian a to Con? vert Rare to Christianity The alleged anti-Semitic crusade conducted by Henry Ford in his news? paper, The Dearborn Independent, and the Presbyterian Church's program to convert Jews to Christianity were de? nounced by the Rev. John Haynon Holmes, pastor of the Community Church, at Carnegie Hall yesterday. The occasion was a union Thanksgiving servie** participated in by the Com? munity Church, the Free Synagogue, Temple Israel and the West Side Uni? tarian Church. "Words are inadequate," said Dr. Holmes, "to describe the indignation and sense of outrage which all Chris? tians should feel at the crusade now being preached against the Jews by Mr. Henry Ford and his Dearborn In? dependent. It is a violation of the ' first principles of Christian brother? hood, and on this day to be denounced as a betrayal of all that we mean by true Americanism. "Scarcely less discreditable than this open hostility and intolerance is the condescension practiced toward Jews by many sincere and well-inten? tioned Christians. Here, for example, is the campaign recently announced in : New York by the Presbyterians for the conversion of the Jews to Christianity. What,, may we ask, do these Presbyte? rians think they ?re doing in thus sug? gesting that the Jews stand in need of , conversion ? "Do they mean to imply that the : Jews in this city are to be regarded as - pagans or have they forgotten that Jesus was a Jew and that his gospel ! was only a peculiarly pure and noble : expression of all that was best in pro? phetic Israel? For myself, I sympa? thize with my Jewish brethren in their indignation at this campaign of conver ; sion put on foot by ardent but mis? guided Christians. "And may I suggest, what they per? haps would be reluctant to suggest, ; that, if the Presbyterians have any money for the conversion of the heathen ; which they do not know what to do with, they use if for the conversion of Christians to Christianity. If there is any one thing which this sad old world most needs to-day it is the teaching to those who call themselves Christians ^?sSf Lined Gloves 7or Men and Women Thu World's Qrsatust Lsathsr Stert? 404 Fifth Ave., N.
