reasons they were able to keep

Cites Need to Observe
Harold E. Stassen, former gov
ernor of Minnesota and a possible
Republican nominee to the presi
dency, began an address at 3:00
o'clock Monday afternoon on the
Lake Junaluska Assembly platform,
as The Mountaineer was going to
Mr. Stassen has scheduled a
short number of talks in this
area in his capacity as President
of the International Council of
Religious Fiducation, an interde
nominational organization. His
talk will be in keeping with the
regular program of the religious
assembly, and Mr. Stassen so far
has avoided comments on political
or other controversial subjects.
Another speaker of national im
portance was heard Sunday, when
Congressman Brooks Hays of Ar
kansas, addressed a large audience
in the Junaluska auditorium.
He cited the need for observing
Christian principles in settling
governmental problems. Religion
has a place in these issues, he
stated, that can not be overlooked
if the traditional belief in freedom
and man's capacity for self govern
ment shall be upheld. He also dis
cussed the need for all people to
subordinate any selfish aims for
the good of the greatest number
'We must assume responsibility
in world affairs for decisions that
deal with people. It is ours to find
the answer and accept the respon
sibility ... We cannot retreat from
imi lucuis ana our unnslian con
victions." The congressman was introduced
by Dr. F. S. Love, superintendent.
On the platform with him were
Bishops Paul Martin of Little Rock,
Ark.; Paul B. Kern of Nashville,
and Coston J. Harrell of Birming
ham; and CnrKETcssman Dwight
Itogers of Florida.
Saturday night the Junaluska
musical progiam under Waller
Herbert was concluded by the con
cert of Alice Dogwood Tomlinson,
contralto. Beginning with the fa
miliar Largo of Handel and end
ing with a group of Negro Spirit
uals, Miss Tomlinson's program
traversed the realm of song from
the classics to modern. Herman
Allison at the piano showed him
self to be a capable accompanist
as well as brilliant, pianist.
