COLLEGE MEN HEAR
A PLEA FOR PEACE
BERKELEY, May 9. — In the presence
of- 10,000 persons; packed into the
Greek theater this afternoon, Rev.
Charles R. Brown, pastor of the First
Congregational church of Oakland,
preached the baccalaureate sermon to
the senior class of the University of
California. His theme, "The Prince
of -Peace," was, as the eloquent clergy
man declared, a departure from the
conventional baccalaureate" address. He
pleaded for the disarmament pf the
nations, and urged that the millions
now being expended for battleships
and armies should be used in the. de
velopment and the conservation of the
peaceful arts.
Rev. Mr. Brown derided the idea of
war between the United States and any
of the other great powers, especially
referring to Great Britain, Germany,
France and Japan. He heavily scored
Captain Richmond Pearson HobHon for
his assertions that there will some day
be war with Japan.
He said that the United States has
increased in population*- 10- per cent
In: the last decade; and.; that its .war
expenditures have increased '. 300 . per
cent.
Continuing, he said In part:
"We have an enemy to r light. 1 - but it
Is not France, nor Germany, nor Eng
land, nor Russia, but, hunger, disease,
graft, all of which . need "good ' states
men, knowledge and the- best type of
citizenship 'possible' to secure from' the
country. • .." .
"There is no reason why peace should
not be. Two countries sometimes
make a treaty to leave a certain
boundary line dispute to arbitration.
Why not have the same. treaty to ap
ply to a larger principle and say that
war should not exist between two
countries? >
"H has been^ advanced as. a Justifica
tion ' for the statements of Impend
ing war with Japan that our'posses
sion of the Philippines would cause
fighting. If this is so it would \u25a0be ; a
poor ?ause for. fighting. .We..; do ".not
need the Philippines. They -but hinder
us. It would . be profitable ' f or \u25a0us\u25a0 to
pay some • respectable nation $50,000,000
to take them off our. hands." ' ;
The clergyman spoke at some length
on the duties of 'lcitlzenshlp about <to
be thrust on, the- graduates,, the' duties
to be performed' and the proper' view
of. Hie/.-; . .:.- ; . • ..-\u25a0:\u25a0 \u25a0'\u25a0 t :> "'; ;

It is impossible at the present time
to predict the outcome of the fight.
The nominating committee, .in 'whose
hands.-the selection is,, will meet at
Del Monte May 18 and .the claims of
the respective candidates will be pre
sented. It is possible that the contro
versy will be. carried out of the com
mittee to the floor of the convention. .
Advices from Los Angeles last night
indicated, that "the . southern delega

that a strong: figlit against the re

of the re-elQCtibn or Mrs. James B.

Oliver C- Bryant, recognized leader of
Los , Angeles "clubwomen,, had .taken a
firni stand against the proposed, con

"The one term' precednrit 'has been
rigidly 'observed," said Mrs;. Waters,
"and a division will surely arise on the

BOYS' TOY "WIRELESS" A
MENACE TO PORT SHIPPING
Instruments Prevent Vessels at
Sea From Sending Messages
In the small boy of San Francisco
and . his experimental . wireless Instru
ments there lies a menace to the safety
of shipping: on the Pacific ocean, ac
cording to Charles B. Warren, purser
and wireless operator of the steam- i
ship Lurline, which, arrived in port .
yesterday from Hawaii. i
Warren asserts that he has had great ,
difficulty in getting tnis port by wire- <
less at all during the daytime and that
he has been compelled to wait until ;
after midnight to send a message to '<
San Francisco owing to j the constant
"breaking in" of instruments operated ,
by youngsters here. .
Warren declares tnat the attention
of the government should be brought j
to the conditions and some action j
taken at once to protect shipping. j
The Boyson Apartments, Twenty-first
and Dolores streets, are plastered. Mc-
Cullough would be pleased to have you
call and look them over. *
