It would be Impossible to escape n conviction, even if so disposed, that cultivation nf the spiritual side of man Is India pcnsnhln to his attainments of high possibilities In human existence. This Is one nf tho most striking of fact In the phenomenal progress of the United State. With separation of state and rmirrii under law, tney nave hero moved tnircthcc toward tlic or- cnmplhliment of vast results. Nor is this met less striking in com munity development.
