The adoption of th« resolution urging repeal of birth control legislation marks the first time, it is stated, that a na- \ tional religious body has taken this j action. The resolution presented by a I committee begins: "This committee finds birth control is one of the most practicable means of race betterment and hereby recom mends it.” The resolution then stated the organization is opposed to l<gi.sla tion forbidding doctors to give out information regarding birth control and i urges the establishment of clinics in j population centers where it is needed to impart information on the subject.

An English translation of the win | rung speech of Roch Pinard. Canadian i orator, who spoke in French, follows: Our country has reached a brilliant epoch in her history: she has become a free nation and has won her rights to international life. Henceforth, the Ca nadians will witness their country tak ing an active part in the affairs of the world. Should not our hearts be justly i filled with enthusiasm in leaving the • passive life ol the colonies, to enter at last into the independent life of na i tions? Can we not regard the future | with hope, when we behold our nation, : enriched with thp qualities of two noble ! and dignified races, fighting her way ! among the great powers? A man feels | happy, when, at the age of 21, he es- j ' capes the guardianship of his masters.: ! to set up, in society, by his own energy, i i Our jov must be still more complete, for it is our w'hole nation that attains j the majority. To understand perfectly well the evo- I lution of our country and her actual J character, may I be allowed to place be | foro you the two-fold situation of Can- I ada, that is. her political end ethical : situation, while showing you neverthe j less the many advantages of such a j condition. I Two countries have shared the di i rection of our Colonial life. France and England. The former gave us our founders and colonist, but afterward disregarded md forsook us. The latter conquered us two centuries ago. and Imposed her authority upon us. allow ing us. however, to bring into notice i our competency and thereby to obtain our liberty. In fact, in what state were we after ; the war that changed our allegiance? We wpre but a simpla colony entirely submitted to the mother country. At ' that time the Canadian government | could make r.o laws, sign no treaty, nor even watch over the future of the na- I : tion without the decisive intervention of ; England. This could not last forever, j Our forefathers vigorously protested ! | and fought unceasingly, but alw-ays I with a perfect loyalty, for the enfran- ; 1 chisement of their nation. Without I having recourse to a revolution, as was j the case in the United States, they con ! quered tlie right to govern themselves. ; j Then our mother country well under j stood that Canada could provide for it- I | self. After many partial concessions. England gave us a suitable form of gov- j j ernment, or rather, she approved the | j one that our political leaders had I : adopted. Hence. Is It not proper for us ! jto be grateful toward our second mother country who understood us so well and guided us with great ability j and justice, keeping, however, the best part of our gratitude for France, who has given us our existence? The constant labor of our statesmen, Cartier and McDonald, obtained us the confederation. This was a decisive step \ toward our independence. England ; highly approved the system grouping the provinces under a federal govern ment and at the same time leaving to j each province its particular govern ment. Afterward, the imperial eonfer | cnees recognized the other liberties w - e I claimed, the last clearly declaring the I complete self-government of Canada. At the present time we form a free na tion. in no way subject to any other. We also form a part of the "common wealth.” a simple community of na tions. equal in every way. which works, each for its own interests, while mu ! tuallv helping one another. The Eng j lish Parliament only presides over this | association of various nations. ; Was not the idea of Cartier and Mc j Donald a masterly stroke? The con federation. whose sixtieth anniversary ! we so joyously celebrated two years ago. I is a form of government, a charter which gives our country full satisfac tion. It answers to the different needs of a bt-lingual nation by granting each race which inhabits our country I the means of developing itself accord j ing to Its particular character.

The Western North Carolina conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church South, tonight was on record as favor ing a Federal investigation into the en tire textile industry of the United States, with a view - to finding some way | to obtain a minimum living wage. The j conference voted to meet in 1930 in j Greensboro. i The conference, in w hose territoryj I the greater part of North Carolina's textile development is situated, adopted a report of its committee on industrial relations. The report was resd by Rev. W. A. Newell, presiding elder of the Gastonia district, in which there has been much rioting and other disturb ances in connection with strikes. The committee toid the conference it had been hindered and delayed by disorders, killings, violence and mob action, which, it asserted, "have dis graced our citizenship." It also called attention to the fact that 20 per cent of the members of the churches of the conference were textile workers and in dividuals of the related industries. "The textile industry is. a sick in-; dustry,” says the report, calling atten- i tion "to prices of standard mill strikes j which, it was asserted, were 50 per cent under the quotations of nine years ago. "The oft-cited huge dividends do not j exist." it assprted, "and are useiul for propaganda only. Very few mills have made more than a reasonable return upon the investment, while It is prob able that more than half of them have made nothing in this period.” "At present the cotton mills cannot j pay a wage scale sufficiently large to i secure a minimum normal standard wage," the report added.

Do we not owe to the federal system our liberty In unity, our peace and good un derstanding. in spite of the divers? ideals of our populations? The Canadian nation has a special ethnic composition which assures her great advantages. Two remarkable geniuses are to be found, namely the Latin genius and the Saxon genius. The Saxon genius, appanage of the English, is the true commercial and practical animating spirit. The Latin j genius, on the contrary, is literary and ’ philosophical It is purs. Frenrh- Canadians This genius’ unites us in timately with France by means of bonds, no longer political, but intellec tual and moral. What benefits must our country derive from two geniuses !so different? For a long while, a struggle, useless as much as unfortunate, troubled our national peace and de layed our prosperity. Fortunately this national rivalry seems to be passing away. Harmony between the two races will be a sure guarantee of develop ment: for if the practical genius of the English unites itself to the intellectual genius of the French, together they will make of the Canadian nation a nation both original and complete. This is what we possess interiorly. Exteriorly, the ethnic situation ol ; Canada furnishes her the indtspensible alliance of her two mother countries England remains a strong and powerful country in commercial life. Thus she will be a precious help to our own com mercial advancement, for our country, which has immense resources, needs ail the possible means to exploit them. France, notwithstanding her past hard ships. always exercises a considerable intellectual prestige over the world United to these two people, we shall share their influence Today we speak the two most prr : vailing languages in the world: Eng ! lish is the language of commerce, while French is that If diplomacy, which as sures the most intimate relations with the great nations in the discussion of I international problems. Is it not on i account of these prerogatives of lan guages that one of our own has been elected to the presidency of the League ' of Nations? i Here is. ladies and gentlemen, what we are and what the work of past gen i eratlons has won for us. What must be said of the history of a people young and strong, descending from two glo i rious nations and who fought without flinching for its liberty and its rights? What must be said of a pleiad of polit | ieal men, of journalists, of orators, of soldiers who have made a great nation of a small colony? Lastly, what must i be said of the history of two races, dif fering In character, tongue and faith, who unite their Intelligence and their efforts for a common cause, that is. the greatness of their country? We must I confess that this history is beautiful, that it Is sublime. It is more than a history, it is an epopee! It is the in heritance that our forefathers left us. It is the fruit of their labor, of their struggles, of their heroism. It Is the gift of their hearts. In a word, it is their share. It is our turn now to act in consequence. We are conscious that the condition of our country is the most favorable of all. May we keep it intact and derive benefit front it! May we complete the union of these nations In Canada! It is especially our duty, young men In the twenties, who are rightly called the hopes oi tomorrow, to bear the light, enkindled by our ances tors, to future generations, consecrating our minds and oiir hearts to that noble task. In our turn, let us do something for our country, so that these coming j after us may find Canada more pros i perous and powerful, and still more glorious among the nations of the j world!

October 26.—An In sanity complaint was filed today against James Clifford. 28. who attempted i suicide by shooting here last night, later i tilling hospital employes a wild story of being doomed to death by a secret cult to which he belonged.

Clifford previously had filed theft charges against the woman and her husband, accusing them of stealing bonds valued at $5,000.

Benigno Petit Lecaros of Peru and Gabriel Fouche of France. Leigh Opens Meeting. The judges who determined the vic tors were Dr. Jan Herman Van Royen, Minister from the Netherlands. Dr. Jules-Bois of the faculty of l’Ecole de Psychologic, Paris; Dr. Richard Henry Wilson of the University of Virginia: Dr. Adam Boving. Danish scholar of the National Museum; Dr. Paul G. Gleis >f Catholic University and Comdr. J. B. DeMarbois of the Upper Canada College at Toronto. Randolph Leigh, director general of the contest, opened the meeting short ly before 8:15 o'clock with a brief talk, in which he reviewed the purposes of the contest. These principles, he said, were the increase of respect for and i interest in good government and the i preservation of the spoken w’ord as a medium of human intercourse. He introduced Dr. Friedrich W. von Prittwitz und Gaffron, German Am bassador to the United States, who de livered the opening address. "Competition of any sort.” Ambas sador von Prittwitz declared, "is the best method of training physical and mental ability and of developing | understanding comradeship, fairness and mutual respect. This competition, just as any international one. tends furthermore to create in the heart* and minds of its contestant* the feel ing that they are also citizens of an international world in which they have to live together.” Presents Each Contestant. Following the German Ambassador’s address Mr. Leigh presented each of the contestants to the audience. Later the youths were summoned to speak with the playing of their national j anthems by the Tech Symphony Or chestra of the McKinley High School here, under the direction of Do re Walten, faculty leader. On the stage with the nine contestants W'cre, besides Mr. Leigh, the French and German Ambassadors, and Mr. Ham mond. Vincent Massey. Canadian Min ister to the United States; Don Orestes Ferrara, Cuban Ambassador; Constan tin Brun, Danish Minister, and Dr. j Don Pablo Campos-Ortiz, first eecre tary of the Mexican embassy. Swofford Opens Contest. Summons'd to verbal battle by the strains of his country’s "Star-Spangled Banner,” Ben Swofford, Kansas City, spokesman for the United States, walked confidently to the center of the stage to do his brst to repeat the vic tory which won him acclaim In the American finals last May. Delivering the same oration on "The American Con stitution and Its Framers,” young Swofford spoke with new command and feeling. There was new drama in the Missourian's voice with which he sought to oppose the anticipated fire of his foreign competitors. Yet there was the same dignity with which he wrested the decision from a board of Supreme Court justices in the Spring. If he was fearful of opening the con test he failed to show it and applause greeted his efforts. Gabriel Fouche, young Parisian who told his audience he was delegated to bring a message to America from the youth of France, w - as second of the orators to bid for the championship. His message, delivered with the feeling for which his people are known, carried, as his topic implied, “The Aspirations I of French Youth." These hopes, he f said in French, are for a recognition of the necessity of a combination of the physical and the mental abilities of his , people if prosperity of France is to h- I restored. Spectators at a foot ball game, he said, are not mere wu. ii.rs, j but they are moralists because the;, I recognize that the acquisition of physl- j ! cal strength is a basis for spiritual life , and because they are tired of mere j work. This combination, he said, will reflect itself in French industry of the future. Tells of German Life. Herbert Scnaumann, East Prussia spokesman for Germany, followed Fouche with an oration on "The Sig nificance of the Weimar Constitution to the Use of Germany.” Tracing this | significance in the everyday life of his generation, Sc-haumann reviewed the i demands his government makes of its people—pursuit of education, develop ment of talent and service to country— I so that the future German adults may j struggle “for peace, for humanity," that I humanity itself may be strong. Schau- I mann’s delivery was rich in expression | and at times dramatic in its appeal I for understanding of Ills homeland by the foreign audience which faced : him. His Impassioned conclusion drew ■ thunderous applause from the audience. Peruvian Appeals for Beauty. S Another Latin, Benigno Petit Lecaros, ; Peruvian spokesman tor South Amer | ica, followed Gris with an appeal for appreciation of things beauttiul. His j oration on “Art in Civilization’’ was ' the longest on the program and was | fraught wth phrased darts pointing to the harmonies of life, which, he said, | should thrill all mankind. "Now. more than ever,” Lecaros said, j "there is urgent need of the art that | comes to lift with spiritual fervor mod ern society out of its materialism.’’ After the German, came the Mex ican, and the diminutive Roberto Oriz Gris, spokesman for the republic below the Rio Grande, launched with good effect his oratorical query, "Shall the Latin American Peoples Try to Replace Pan-AmericanLsm by a Policy of Uni versal Interests?” His answer, couched in Dhiiosophic observations of the changing times, was emphatically af firmative. Gris declared that the Latin Amer ican nations were right In creating Pan- Americanism for they were the victims of colonial oppression and such an al- ORATORY WINNER AWARDED RARE FRENCH VASE a„ii pip , .

Such alliances as Pan-Americani*m proposed, he said, are unnecessary now ; because economics is the strongest 1 chain that unites the nations. "The United States has taken a defl nit* step toward the League of Na- ! tions,” Gris declared. “Latin America 1 must support the idea and follow its steps.” Canadian Lauds France. Roch Pinard. Canada’s champion, was the sixth orator to speak. He discussed "Canada Among the Nations.” With out hesitancy. Pinard. mellow-voiced and clear-eyed as he faced his audi ence. declared hLs dominion land now ia ready to take its place in the world as a nation. France, whose language he used, he said had given Canada Its | founders and colonists, and that Eng land imposed upon the lands an au thority which permitted to demonstrate j It* competency which may obtain com- I plete liberty. Therefore, he continued. Canada has "a special composition which assures her great advantages"— the Anglo-Saxon and the Latin. "And j now, Canada bears sublime history j which is the fruit of the labors of its j people, the forefathers of the present | generation which now must act in con- | sequence to give Canada its own nationality.” If the audience greeted warmly the six boys who had spoken. It rose to enthusiastic heights in the greeting it extended the only girl in the meet — Miss Lis Torsleff of Denmark. Her oration. "Denmark’s Constitution and Political Ideals.” presented a picture of Denmark today. She traced the history of her homeland and pronounced with almost adult calm and realization that while Denmark Is a member of the I League of Nations, it may be dangerous for so small a power to league itself with larger countries who have decisive influence. Bv virtue of this recognition. Miss Torsleff said that disarmament advocated by the Socialist party is the burning question in her home country. Praise* Cuban Hero. The third Spanish oration on the ; program was delivered when Vincente Pardo Suarez, Cuban entry, spoke on | "Jose Marti” as the eighth to bid for victory. Suarez’ speech was a reverent j pronouncement of the merits of Cuba's ; national hero. Marti. In impassioned 1 eloquence he demanded that a foreign , audience hear of the works of the mail t Marti and venerate that hero even as i the orator himself worships his name. 1 Suarez asked that Mart i s name be even "a pillar and a proud ideal.” He con- I eluded his plea with a crisp ”1 have i I spoken.” and his audience, held silent |by his oratory, thundered It* acquies ience . | As English had launched the con test. finals, so it concluded It. F. Whit j nail Allen. England’s spokesman, was 1 the ninth and last orator to speak. It was the life of William Edward Glad stone, British statesman, which he dls | cussed with all the dignity and pre- I cision of his country. He traced the 1 struggle of Gladstone on behalf of Ire land, even when his efforts on behalf of the Island colony meant personal losses. Gladstone, Allen concluded, I "was representative of the highest qual ities in the British race.” Allen resumed his scat with the audi ence's approval of his efforts and those ; of the orators while the judges under- I took the task of determining the victor, j SIX PLEAD NOT GUILTY IN MANSLAUGHTER CASE' Defendants Face Indictment in Connection With Sykes Death May 13 in Rear of Hotel.
