Chapel last Sunday night, Rabbi Stephen
Samuel Wise, of the Free rc
New York, warned his audience against

peace, when there is no peace”.

challenged to safeguard the sanctities of
life and we dare not refuse. The soul of
the world is at stake.”
“Granted that we could trust the word
of the Central Powers,” continued Rabbi
Wise, “peace to-day would leave the
whole of Europe under the shadow of
Prussia. We have no hatred of the Prus-
sians, but we have a deep conviction that
God has given it to each people to live
its own life, and this conviction Germany‘

‘In a stirring war sermon preached in|
second quotation from the enbbicediag ia
magazine Power is supplied in the cor-
rect reading which follows:
“If you will call up any one of fifty |
private plant owners in your immediate
vicinity, you will find that practical ex-
perience has shown them that they will
use no more coal during the months of
January, February, and March, and in
many cases also in April, for supplying
their total requirements of heating and
electricity than they would for supplying
their requirements of heat alone. This
is such a well-known fact that it is hardly
disputed by unbiased engineers.”
