New York,' May 18. President Wil son the man on whom the eyes of the world are turned because of the international situation yesterday re viewed the Atlantic fleet in the Hud son river, and at a luncheon tendered to -him on shore by the city of New York told a distinguished gathering of ' navy officers, army officers and civilians what the country and its navy stand for. The great battleships he said, are "engines to promote the interests of humanity." "The inspiring thing about Amer ica," the president asserted, 'is that she asks nothing for herself, except what she has a right to ask for hu manity itself. We want no nation's property; we wish to question no na tion's honorf we wish to stand sel fishly in the way of the development of .no nation. -It is not pre tension on our .part to say that we are privileged to stand for what any nation would wish to stand for and speaking for those things which all humanity must desire. " Ovation for President. Although the day was damp and chilly, with occasional downpours of rain, the. weather abated in no way the enthusiasm with which New York greeted the head of the nation. In the forenoon he reviewed a land parade of 5,000 sailors and marines from i fleet's sixteen battleships, and from the moment he set foot on shore until after the luncheon he returned to the Mayflower to review the fleet, his passage through' the street was a con tinuous ovation. The president boarded the yacht for the review at 3 o'clock after a quick trip from the Hotel BiHmore, where tha 'luncheon was held. A half hour was spent in receiving official visits from the flag officers and captains of the fleet and then the Mayflower got under way. The president, together with Secretary Daniels, Secretary Lane. Secretary Redfleld and Acting Mayor McAneny stood on the yacht's bridge. - Four Miles of Ships. - The fleet stretched ahead up the river for four miles, each ship dressed from stem to stern", with pennahts and ensigns, the national colors fluttering over the taffralls and at mastheads. The crews in blue service uniforms, the officers in gold lace, manned the rails. As the president's yacht, convoyed by four destroyers, reached the 'flag ship .Wyoming, the first line, in the president's salute of twenty-one guns boomed across the -water and rever berated back and forth between the Palisades and New York's skyscrap ers. Each battleship as the Mayfiow-j er passed thundered a similar salute, j 336 guns in all. " WILSON REACHES NEW YORK I Presidential Yacht Mayflower Was j Convoyed from Hampton Roads By the Cruiser Baltimore.

MISSIOn OF THE L SHOULD BE UNIVERSITY OF RE LIGIOUS LEARNING. Duty of Christianity to Evangelize the World. , By Rev. Jno. A. Rice, D. D. Pastor St. John M. B. Church, South, St. Louis. Mo. Some years ago, the question was asked: What Is a college? The at tempt to answer It shook the educa tional world in America from center to circumference. Another question is now beginning to be asked: What is a church? Without undertaking to give a definition of it, let me ask, in this initial paper, what the church is for? The New Testament reveals three distinct tasks to which it is committed. First, that of evangelization. The church Is divinely commissioned to reach for the lowest and the least man in the least land and offer him sonshlp to the Eternal God; offer him a divine power, which lifts blm out of the bog and places him upon the highest levels of human life, where God and the soul are in fellowship. This alone were an Immense priv ilege. Teaching the Art of Living. The church is commissioned also to teach and train those who are rich with its evangelistic message. The term, Religious Education, has come to mean a specific thing in our country, namely, the training of the people in the local church in those deep matters which pertain to the art of living. I am not now speaking of the work of education in schools, colleges and universities, but the work of education at our doors, in the con gregation. Every agency In reach should be employed to the utmost In this Important mission, inaeeuj iue local church could be made a sort of university for all the people, in which the simple, practical arts and virtues of everyday life should be taught and enforced. Only recently has mis special phase of the church's work re ceived anything like adequate atten tion. The New Testament word for it is Edification. School of Religion Needed. . Of course, the Sunday School is the center for all this work, although the activities of the church should extend through the entire week and the Sun day School should cease to be so named. It should be called the School "of Religion or the Church School or something else that indicates it to be an allthe-week activity. During this time various and sundry clubs, classes, musical organizations, culture courses, as well as distinctly religious meetings, should be held. Thickly settled neigh borhoods, as we shall see, offer fine opportunities for the development of things spiritual. The third task to which the church is committed is that of Christianizing the social order; that of Infusing the spirit of Jesus into every nook and corner of our life. Nothing is foreign to the interest of the church. Neighborly Love Essential. If religion pervades and colors the whole life then ours is serious busi ness, for it will let no corner of the world escape Its Influence.- The sooner we learn that Christianity is not a thing to be practiced in a corner the better for the world. The question of the eighteenth century, touching Chris tianity, was, Can it be made to square with the human reason? Of the nine- onnth cHn t made to square with. the results of scientific research? Of the twentieth, What can it do? .We must learn to enforce not only love of God, whom we cannot see, but love to our neighbors, with whom we are living in constant contact. Neither without the other is Christianity whatever else It may be. Everything that interests his neighbors must interest him, If, he is a genuine follower of the Christ. It is the mission of the church the rural as well as the city to evange lize the whole world, to train to the highest degree of efficiency those whom- It evangelizes and to seek to make the spirit of Jesus the absolute rule In all human relations. It is an admitted economic fact that there can be no permanent prosperity without a permanent agriculture.
