had- become a practical necessity," to
Which the framers of the treaty felt
bilged to turn "as an indispensable
Instrumentality for the maintenance
of the new order it has been their
purpose to set up in the world."

and cheered for a minute in disregard

"The most skeptical" of the peace
conferees at Paris, the president said,

"The fact that the covenant of tho
league was the first substantive part
of the treaty to be worked out and
agreed upon," the president said,
"while all else was in solution, helped
to make the formulation of the rest

Mr. Wilson said the agreement on
the covenant had given the confrees a

which did not admit of Immediate de
termination of all administrative prob
lems which were to require a continu
ing oversight.

to seem a plain counsel of necessity.
The League of Nations was the prac

many of the most difficult things he
Was attempting."

pictures in their churches, especially
on Sundays, when they were opposed
to motion picture houses keeping open
on Sunday.

mosphere in' the church," said Dr.
Charles F. Reisner of New York,

tained. They should not be made
