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
“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.”

States Budget Purpose.
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
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
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.
