LONDON, April 6. Whether
the church should provide wo
men confessors is a question
with which the Lambeth confer
ence of the clergy of Great Brit
ain, to be held in July, is threat
ened. At a meeting of the National
Union for Equal Citizenship,
Miss Edith Picton-Turberville
said letters had been received
from girls-pleading for women
confessors in high Anglican

Uruguay President Proposes
i Association for Common
MONTEVIDEO, April 21 Forma
tion of an "American league" on a
basis of absolute equality bct-.veen
American nations for common action
against aggression threatening any
one of them from outside nations and
for arbitration of inter-American dis
putes was proposed by Dr. Baltazar
Brum, president of Uruguay, In ad
dressing students of the University of
Montevideo tonight.
Dr. Brum declared other American
countries should make a declaration
similar to the Monroe doctrine to se-j
cure the solidarity of the American
continent. He said should any mem
ber of the "American league" have a
controversy with the league ot nations
that nation should ask for the co-operation
of the "American league" in
settling tho controversy.
Doctrine Discussed
Taking up tho Monroe Doctrine,
Dr. Brum pointed out how it had
"constituted, on the whole, an ef
ficacfous safeguard to tho territorial
Integrity of many American coun
tries." Dr. Brum asserted the entity of the
United' States into the war was "an
ticipated application ot the Monroe
doctrine," adding:
"Owing to the state in which Euro
pean countries remain after the strug
gle, it may bo said that fear of invas
ion by them in America has been re
moved for many years."
I "But is that sufficient reason for
! us .to take no interest in the future,
and turn away from the Monroe doc
! trine with the pretext it Is now un
necessary?" he asked. "I bellcvq
that today, more than ever, we should
use foresight In searching for formu
las that may assure forever the peace
and full Independence' of American
Room For Both
Referring to hi3 schemo for an
"American league" as tho same as
President Wilson proposed organizing
Dr. Brum thought it could co-exist
with tho league of nations without
He pointed out that unsettled,
boundary questions were still embar
rassing many American countries,
and said settlement would bo possible
by tho "American league" without ap
peal to tho leaguo of nations. Regard
ing tho internal questions of individ
ual nations, ho thought no Interven
tion should be permitted unless two
thirds of tho allied countries decided
to intervene.
President Brum expressed belief
that the American political world
should also declare against diplomat
ic interference by outside nations.
