Large Crowd Heard Mr. Daniels At Lake Sunday LAKE 'JUXAI.U-SKA.-vIoseph'us Daniels, United States ambassador to Mexico, was the principal speaker here Sunday at the opening session of the annual Southern Methodist church asse nvbly. Haywood County day was celebrat ed at the assembly Sunday, and Am bassador : Haniels.' address was the third he has delivered on this occa sion at Lake Junaluska. Mr. Maniels and family have for years spent part of each summer at. their cottage on Lake JJunaluska, and he has come to be regarded as a resident of Hay wood county as well as Wake county. Mr. Daniels divided his address into two parts. In the first part he dis cussed the duty of the church in the program of recovery in a changing world, and in the second part he spoke on . the growing interest in the In dian and his advancement in the wes tern hemisphere, particularly in Mex ico where the Indians comprise three- fourths of the population and are obtaining increased participation in the government of their country. i The Mexican ambassador oecian-u that mora! collapse preceded-' the fi nancial debacle'. in America.' ."It wag the. bankruptcy of character .rather than the economic debacle, that de stroyed faith and spread disaster. Spiritual bankruptcy led the way to the economic overthrow," Mr. Maniels; declared. He said the church should fear a return'" of the sort of prosperity, which brings a mad rush for inordinate pi ofit ',', There; can be no good perma nent social -order that is not based on a sound, mora and Christian foun dation, the ambassador declared. Mr. Daniels emphasized that the church fell short of it's duty when if did not "cry aloud against the-frenzied finance which produced the pan ic" and urged the church leaders and members to stand militantly for the practical adoption of the Golden Rule as made applicable to present day problems in the social creed of the churches, as adopted by the Federal Council of Churches of Christ in America.
