White House Reserves Box
for Washington Forum,
Beginning Wednesday.
A box for the Washington Forum
series of 1937-38 lectures at Consti
tution Hail has been reserved for the
use of President Roosevelt and his
family or staff, £?sse H. Knight,
chairman of the Forum Executive
Board, announced yesterday.
Reservations have been received
from many of the foreign embassies
and from a number of local colleges,
universities and schools, he said.
H. G. Wells, British novelist-phi
losopher, will open the series with a
lecture at Constitution Hall Wednes
day evening. His lecture will be based
on the paper he delivered recently
before the British Association for the
Advancement of Science on the sub
ject of the "World Brain."
• Mr. Wells believes there is danger
of a new world war, which can be
deferred or even prevented by world
wide education, not necessarily of
the pacifist type, but which will enable
the average person to understand and
appreciate fully the folly and waste
of war.
He believes that world scientific
advancement, increasing interdepend
ence of the peoples of the world and
the abolition of distance are factors
which will make world co-operation
and co-ordination inevitable. He feels
that we must reshape human affairs
if we do not wish disaster to over
take us.
