Rev. Anderson of First

Objections to the Inlerchurch
world movement voiced last night by
Hov, W. O. Anderson, pastor of tho
Klrst Baptist church, wero Its use

expenditure of money, (rend toward
dictatorship In denominational pro
grams, duplication of effort, mis
leading claims by speakers, and ten
dency to stibstltutn ecclesiastical
machinery for religion.

of tho movement tu preach the gos

Ho then stated the four purpose
to which tho movement Is limited
by its constitution. The first pur.
pose, that of making a world sur
vey of tho mission situation, Is uso
less, he declared, as euch denomina

tho movement, that of publishing
