Dangerous Attitude Has Cost
U. S. Thousands of Lives
and Dollars, He Says
PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 21. Admiral
William S. Sims, orator at the univer
sity day exercises at the University of
Pennsylvania today to celebrate the
birthday of George Washington, drew
lessons from the career of the first
president and criticized the tendency
of 'Americans to resent adverse com
ment upon military unpreparedness of
the United States.
"The missing element in American
ism." said the admiral, "is that it does
not include adequate solicitude for our
safety. The government, and to a cer
tain extent our people, resent criticism
of anything American. This is a dan
gerous attitude (hat has cost us many
thousands of lives and many millions
In European countries, Admiral
Sims said, national defense is a live
"Tho actual condition of their armed
forces is so vitally important," he said,
"that anyone who can point out a de
fect or suggest an improvement will
earn the gratitude of his government.
Criticism is recognized as so vital to
efficiency' that it is not only welcome
but is invited, and is rewarded when
if. proves beneficial."
"In the . United Slates." Admiral
Sims said, "we not only neglect to pro
vide for public criticisms of our offi
cers, but actually forbid it.
"The consequence is that "the Ameri
can people know less about the ele
ments of warfare and less about the
actual condition of their military
forces than the people of any of the
other great powers- Though this has
militated against our preparedness for.
war in the past, and although we havoi
nevertheless always attained our ob
ject in war without very serious loss
still it must be evident that a similar
attitude cannot be maintained in fu
ture v.'ilhout serious risks."
The honorary degree of doctor of
laws was conferred upon Admiral

WASHINGTON. Feb. 21. The ab

made public here today. The letter is
signed by Cardinal Gibbons. It says
The archbishops and bishops of the
United States, in conference astern

unto you and peace from
God- our, Father, and from the Lord
Vi?ncralble brethren of the clergy,
Thirty-five years have elapsed 'ainco
th.- Fathers Of the Third Plenary
Council of Baltimore addressed iheir
Paetoral Letter to the faithrul of their
charge. The interval has been mark
ed by events of far-reaching import
for the welfare of mankind. The
greatest of these, the -world war, is fi
nally ended. And now that God, in
His mercy, has restored the nations to
peace, it is fitting that we offer up
pra'se and thanksgiving to Him for
the blessings which Ho has bestowed
on the chuich at large and especially
on the church in our country.
We refer with pride and gratitude
to the growth of our Catholic schools.
It js an evidence of the interest which
you take in the Christian education
of your children. You are convinced,,
as t c are, that religious Instruction is
not only a part of education but tin;
most, important part.
Negroes and Indians.
It is mainly through education that
we shall improve the condition of the
negro and Indian races and enable
thsm to enjoy more fully thv bles
sings of religion. Both justice and
chanty require that they be given the
fair opportunity of which they have
so long been deprived. In the eyes
of the church, as in the sight of God,
all men have been redeemed at the

intuit; ltrui 1 11.13, diiuu an iiau iiuvu
of the same spiritual guidance and
the same good will on the part of
theh folloviinen. We therefore in
voke the Divine benediction on those
who are laboring in tho interest of
the negro and Indian; and wp depre
cate most earnestly all attempts at
stirring up racial hatred, which so of
ten expresses itself in deeds of vio
lence unworthy of a civilized nation.
The Wider Social Relations.
Social intercourse, in tho usual
sense, responds to a demand of. our
human nature. It is an effectual
means of drawing more closely the
bonds of charity. And it often gives
occasion for Joint endeavor In fur
therance of tho common good.
To attain these worthy ends, social
enJoment must remain within reason
able" limits'. When it interferes with
the duties of home, it defeats its own
purpose. When it becomes extravagant
and develops a crazo for pleasure, it
is likely to pervert the whole meaning
of life. A people that lives on ex
citement and sensation will soon lose
its moral fiber. The power of endur
ance is directly proportioned to tho
power of self-restraint. And this we
surelj need at the present time when
America is passing through tho grav
est crisis in its history.
In this matter wo appoal with all
possible earnestness to Catholic wom
en. Wo urge them especially to coun
teract, with the force of example,
those- tendencies to excess whereby
the prescriptions of plain decency and
even tho slightest restraints of con
vention too often arc disregarded.
As life and its relations have their
origin in the home, whatever strength
ens the family lie -will redound to the
gooJ of socioty. On the contrary, all
those influences and tendencies which
wo:iken the bond mntter. Ignorance is
an evil; as such it must be removed.
But It is not the only evil. What we
have chiefly to fear is educated intel
ligence devoid of moral principle tho
man who uses his knowledge to abuse
his freedom. This is tho dangerous
type. To continue Its production or
allow it to multiply would not be the
part of wisdom.
It is an error to assume that the la-
