IRC Clubs Started
With Carnegie Help
When Andrew Carnegie gave ten million dollars to the cause of
peace in 3910, he had in mind converting the ponderous statesmen of
the time to the benefits of international pacts and treaties. Significant
it is that in 30 years of peace work, the trustees of his gift have turned
increasingly to the belief that the road to peace lies in intenational un
standing rather than in international barter.
