National Conservation association. Dr.
Eliot was made president. Under his
leadership the association nt once met
with a hearty response. Its first bulle
tin called attention to the situation
respecting the Al'isk.in coal lands
which have rlnce achieved such prom
inence ' through the Palllnger-Pinchot
controversy. In that bulletin which
was Issued In November, Dr. Eliot,
speaking of the association, said:
"The National Conservation associa
tion Is convinced of the urgent need
of Immediate measures to prevent the
control of the great sources of heat
and nicchanic.il power in the United
States from being seized by monopo
list ie organizations, and to secure the
best development of these sources In
the interest of the whole people."

International Missionary Confer
ence Urged to Establish One
by Investigators.
Edinburgh, June 22. The commission
on "The Preparation of Missionaries"
presented Its report at today- session
of tho International Missionary con
ference. The report was read by tho
chairman of the commission. Rev. W.
Douglas Mackenzie. D. I)., president of
Hartford. Conn., Theological seminary.
Having determined the need of a
body definitely commissioned to ex
amine into and co-ordinate the possi
bilities for special missionary prepara
tion, the commission proposed that
steps should be taken by tho world
missionary conference to create a per
manent board of missionary Ptudy
through the Joint action of the several
societies and boards.
The report In part follows:
"It Is not possible to rcgurd every
desire to offer for service ubroad as
constituting in itself u call to work In
the foreign field. In each church there
ure those on whom rests the solemn
responsibility of deciding on the fit
t ess of the applicant. In tho strictest
tense no vocation Is complete until the
moving of the spirit from within Is
confirmed and crowned from without,
through the operation of the same
spirit. No one would claim infallibil
ity for the decisions of candidates'
committees, but definite functions are
entrusted to them, each within tho
limits of Its own community.
In order therefore to lessen the dan
ger of eventual disappointment, the
commission would urge the necessity
(a) More careful statement on the
part of official deputations In their ap
peals for offers of service.
"(b) A clearer apprehension on the
luirt of both clergy and people of the
requirements of the modern situation
on the mission field.
"(e) More frank and confidential
contact between local workers and the
candidates' committees and central of
ficials. "(d) Sympathetic effort at tho time
of rejection to soften the blow and pre
vent the dissipation of spiritual energy
conseeitient on the disappointment of
the hopes both of the Individual und of
the congregation.
"The church us a whole has respon
sibility, not only in regard to mission
ary vocation, but also at the various
stages of missionary preparation.
"As soon as the candidate declares
his Intention of offering himself for
work abroad, and has been provisional
ly n't least, accepted, the period of
strictly missionary preparation be
gins, and the direct responsibility of
the chrurch In the matter devolves up
on the special department of church
organization which Is concerned with
missionary work.
"The institutions engaged in provid
ing the training have a claim on gen
erous financial support. The burden
of raising the necessary funds should
never be thrown on the authorities In
charge of them. They have a claim
still more on the support of constant
nnd faithful Intercession.
