THE LEAGUE OF NATIONS DISCUSSED BY
SENATOR OVEIANBEFORE THE BANKERS
Senator Lee S. Overman addressed
the members of the North Carolina
Bankers' Association in Winston-Salem
Friday at 12 o'clock, on the subject,
"The League of Nations." Mr. Over
man said: . '
From far across the seas, from a
foreign Jand, amidst poeans of praise
and songs of triumph, our brave sold
ier boys have returned to their dear
old homeland crowned with a glorious
victory upon the battlefield. They
w hipped the uermans to a stanasuii
a victory of arms, an armistice and a
cessation of hostilities. But the victo
ry of this most stupendous and most
horrible of all wars is not yet com
plete, and will not be complete until all
they fought and died for is settled and
settled for humanity, for justice, lib
erty, freedom and a world democracy,
and for universal' and international
peace. It will not be settled and com
pleted until the League of Nations, the
Covenant of peace for the nations., of
the world, isratified. Until this is done
there can be no peace, but unrest, rev
olution, starvation and anarchy will
stalk up and down the world, bringing
in its wake destruction of nations, so
cial disorder, wretchedness and finally
the extermination of the races of men.
, Since the days of the lowly Naza-
rene coming out of the wilderness and
proclaimed peace on earth and good
will to men, for more than two thou--sand
years, after experiencing the
horrors of war, the fathers , have
dreamed and prayed that wars, would
cease in all the earth and the time
would come when the sword shall be
beaten into the ploughshare and the
spear into the pruning hook ,and war
shall be no more.
Our country for years and years at
tempted to negotiate treaties of peace.
This has been the announced policy.
It was attempted during the McKinley,
the Roosevelt and Taft administrations
and during the first term of President
Wilson's administration, reace wren
armament, peace without armament,
the Bryan treaties, peace through the
Hague Convention. All this has been
of no avail, and it has been followed by
the neatest of wars.
The question of the peace of the
world is still unsettled. Now the great
est ooDortunitv for a world peace is
hew. .At this time when a irreat part
of the world's surf ace is drenched with
1.1 i t w. innn milltnna rvf Tnpn'
lie deacfwid buried In the "sheir torn
fields of France and other lands. When
millions of widows and fatherless chil
dren are crying out i ntheir distress
snH cannot be comforted and see no
hoDe for the future, when millions of
men who have survived walk about in
a dazed condition almost without hope
for the future. When the nations of
the earth are so burdened with debt
that bankruptcy is staring them in the
face; At such a time the great oppor
tunity has arrived "to stop, look and
listen", to endeavor to secure peace,
to restore order, to preserve society,
and provide domestic tranquility and
to inspire the breasts of suifering hu
manity with hope for a new and better
order of things. Out of which shall
come democracy, freedom and liberty
t the individual citizen, hiarher civili
zation, and a government in all lands
such as we have by the consent of the
governed. . ......
I have read the treaty, heard it dis
cussed, studied it and thought over it,
nnit hav determined it is my duty to
suDDort its i ratification to meet the
irreat resnonsibility resting upon us,
and aid in the completion of the victory

Shall we in this country who for
yean have advocated peace among all
nations .stand in the way of its ratifi
cation t- Shall we refuse to accept that
rhih w ham advocated and prayed
for, that wo proclaimed to the world
was our purpose? In the great crisis
hall we admit that all oar uroieesioiu
and promises have been mere pretenses
and camouflage, and thus nave oar

One o' the rreatest events in the
world's history was when our great
Commander-in-Chief, the President of
the United States, appeared on the 2nd
day of April, 1917, before a Joint ses-
. aion of the Senate and House of Repre
sentatives' and delivered his great war
message. After redting the hostile nets
. of the Imperial . German : Government
. arainft oar-country, among other
. things, ho said: i ; . . t
' "While we do these thinffs. - these
. deeply momentous things, let as (be

the world what oar motives and our
objects are. My own thought has not

mal eonrse bv the unhappy events of
" tha last two months, and I do not be-

-' last; the same that I had on mind when
' I addressed the Congress on tho third
of February and on the 26th of Feb
t mary. Our object, now as then, is. to
' vindicate tho principles of peace and
Justice in the life of the world as
against selfish and autocratic pwer
and to set up amongst tho really free
' and self-governed peoples of the world
". such a concert of purpose and of action
as will henceforth insure the observ

seen the last of neutrality in such cir
cumstances. We are at the beginning
of an age in which it will be insisted
that the same standards of conduct and
of responsibility for wrong done shall
be observed among nations and their
governments that are observed among
the indivdual citizens of civilized
We are now about to accent cuaire of
battle with this natural foe to liberty
and hall, if necessary, spend the whole
force of the nation to check and nullify
its pretensions and its' power. We are
glad, now that we see the facts with
no veil of false pretence about them,
to tight thus for the ultimate peace of
tne wona and ior tne liberation of its
peoples, the German peoples included:
for the rights of nations great and
smalt and the privilege of men every
where to choose their way of life and
of obedience. 1 he world must be made
safe for democracy. Its peace must be
planted upon the tested foundations of
political liberty. We have no selfish
ends to serve. We desire no conquest,
no dominion. We seek no indemnities
for ourselves, -p material compensa
tion for the saenhces we shall freely
make. We are but one of the cham
pions of the rights of mankind. We
shall be satisfied when those ritrhts
have been made as secure as the faith
and the freedom of nations can make
It is a fearful thing to lead this great
peaceful people into war, into the most
terrible and disastrous of allVars, civ
ilization itself seems to be in the bal
ance. But the right is more precious
than peace, and we shall fight for the
things which we have always carried
nearest our hearts for democracy, ior
the right of those who submit to au
thority to have a voice in their own
governments, for the right and the lib
el tics of small nations,, for a universal
dominion of right by such concert of
free peoples as shall bring peace and
safety to all nations and to make the
world itself at last free. To such a task
we can dedicate our lives and our for
tunes, everything that we are and ev
erything that we have, with the pride
of those who know that the day has
come when America is privileged to

Asheboro Township Sunday School
The Asheboro Township Sunday
School Convention convened in the M.
E. church, in Asheboro, last Sunday
evening, August 24, at 8:30 o'clock,
conducted by Mr. E. L. Mofiitt.
ihe devotional services were conduct
ed by Rev. C. L. Whitaker, pastor of
the M. P. church. Following this the
president made some remarks of exlan-
ation concerning the convention.
Then there was a duet sang by two
professional singers, Miss Ferree and
Mr. Grady Miller, of Asheboro, which
every one seemed to enjoy very much.
following this there were two short
talks made by Mr. W. L. Ward and
Rev. Ira Erwm, pastor of the M. E.
church on the subject of Constructive
Tasks. Mr. Ward said that the para
mount task that confronted the loyal
Sunday School worker is to get the
young men and young women that ride
about in their cars during Sunday
school hours and sit around public
places into the Sunday Schools and
keep them there. Ho said to accom
plish this task would require military
terms, that, is select young men and
young' women that -are already in the
Sunday Schools, and ones that, are effi
cient in ' every resp&f "and "send them
out to get the! non-Sunday School
young men and women and bring them
in. He said to keep them was the
greater task, but he said that could be
accomplished by teaching them to love
and fear their God.
Rev. Erwin said that the class was
the unit of the Sunday School, and that
the need of more faithful and more effi
cient teachers was necessary in order
to secure these young men and women,
that are not in the Sunday School.
Following this discussion, Mr. J.
Norman Wills, of Greensboro, delivered
an excellent address on the Real Tasks
of the Sunday School. Mr. Wills said
the growth of the Sunday Schools had
been very rapid. He said it had been
139 vears since Robert Rakes conduct
ed the first Sunday School with just a
little girl and boy as his pupils and to
day a vast army ot people of all ages
are in the Sunday School work. He said
that this proved that the "Word of God
