SAYRE WARNS U. S.
CANT DODGE WAR Neutrality Won’t “Save Our Country,” He Tells Preaching Mission. By the Associated Press. RICHMOND, Va., Nov. 6—Assistant Secretary of State Francis B. Sayre said today the United States could no more escape the consequences of another great war "than could a carefully barricaded householder in the path of a cyclone.” "Do not be misled into thinking that neutrality can save our own country,” the State Department offi cial and son-in-law of the late former .President Woodrow Wilson said in an address before a national preaching mission session here. "We see nations expecting war and making gigantic preparations for it, knowing, even as they do so, that, another war may spell the end of our civilization,” he continued. “The practical question is, what are you going to do about it? Are you going to stand supinely by and wait with hands folded for oncoming destruction? Are you loving and educating and rearing children simply to throw them into the shambles of war, to perish dreadfully or to come back cracked in mind and majmed in body? “American manhood and woman hood cannot wait inertly for these things to happen,” he asserted. Pointing out that civilization needs a practical utilization of the “revolu tionary teachings” of Christ, Sayre said “real Christianity today demands the building of new foundations for our civilization. “We milst find a way to satisfy human needs more adequately in a highly organized society such as that in which we live.” he added. "That means a practical utilization of knowl edge gained from Christ.” New Officers of Citizens’ Federation' L. A.

In its action on the District budget problem, the Federation stated it was its purpose: 1. To oppose a higher budget for r the fiscal year 1939 than that for 1938 except that it favored increased expeditures for the Highway and Wa ter Departments made possible by the increase of the water revenues and the increased motor vehicle taxes. 2. To oppose any increased taxa tion and favor revision of the tax system to a more equitable basis with any possible reduction of present taxes through a more efficient and economi cal operation of the District Govern ment. 3. To earnestly petition the Con gress to increase sustantially the share of the cost of the National Capital to be paid annually by the United States. 4. That the numerous resolutions now pending or which may be pending before the Committee on Fiscal Re lations covering District tax legisla tion, including recommendations for the repeal of existing taxes or the substitution of others, should be studied by the committee and acted on in connection with the entire taxa i tion question instead of by piecemeal. Before the federation met, the Capi ! tal Transit Co. had fought back against opponents of the street car token fare increase to the extent of reporting that many cities do not have transit fares, which are lower than the ! new District rates. The company statement declared that of the 25 cities of the United States having a population of 300, 000 or more, according to the 1930 census theiy are 11 which have car fares lower than Washington, but only five which give free transfers to bus es: that the other six charge two to four cents for transfers, or require payment of an additional fare. —.. •-• DOYLE SOUGHT RETURN TO WIFE, ERIEND SAYS Wanted Reconciliation Even While He Went With Mrs. Godde, Hearing Is Told.
