Vision of Event of Week and That
Country la FaclnB Danger.
"America is the psychic center of
the world and upon the people oi
America at the present time lies the
responsibility of preserving the world
from chaos and destruction," aeciareu
Dr. J. H. Dickey, addressing the mem
bers of the Temple of Universal fel
lowship at the meeting at the Wood
men Hall last night.
"Destructive psychological forces
that have been at work in the world
have developed great vibrations, and
the people of Europe have not been
able to stand against them and over
come them. The hope now lies with
the people of this country.
Dr. Dickey declared that he had a
conscious vision of the events of the
coming week in their bearing upon
the world crisis, and that within the
next week it would probably be de
cided whether the world is to emerge
from the chaos of war into which it
has been plunged, or whether It
should be plunged deeper and the peo
ple of America, failing in their duty
to save the world, should lose their
country in the unlversal upheaval.

means that unless the people of this
country throw their efforts and their

the United States will fall of her duty
and will be guilty of the greatest psy

'Sensitives over the entire country
have been receiving visions of late. I
myself have received them, and they
were of a nature that is not conducive
to the greatest, restfulness of soul.
There is no reason why we should not
receive clear visions today as did the
prophets of other days, and it is not
unreasonable to believe that some, of
whom we have heard, have lately seen
the vision of the failure of this gene
ration and the destruction of this
Dr. Dickey held that the persistent
tendency of the age has been to send
out thoughts of negation and destruc
tion. This he declared to be a psycho
logical crime against humanity, and
he held the present war In Europe to
be the result of the accumulated crim
inal psychic impulses that have been
sent forth in this age.
The people of the United States who
are talking peace and thinking peacd

force to offset the negative and de

N V ASS ALAND
Leader, Trained in aiinlon School,
Builds Church Like Fort In An
ticipation of Days of War.
DURBAN. South Africa. April 20.
John Chilembwe, the leader of the re
cent native uprising In Nyassaland. had
undergone some training at an Ameri
can "university, according to a writer
in the Natal Mercury who took part
in crushing the outbreak. What uni
versity it was he does not mention,
but presumably one which specializes
in theological studies. The writer says:
"Chilembwe was trained as a teacher
in an American Baptist mission at
Chiradzulo. As he proved clever, he
was taken to America and there took a
university course. He did well and
was ordained pastor and sent back to
his old station, of which later he took
complete charge. He afterward built
a large church, which, it since has
been discovered, was constructed with
great thoughtf ulness. with three-brick
walls, the intention being to use it as
a citadel in military operations.
"He began teaching Ethiopianism and
gradually got a considerable number
of highly educated native to join htm,
and ultimately they decided to wrest
Nyassaland from the Europeans and run
it themselves. All the arrangements
were complete for a simultaneous at
tack on every township and station in
the country, and January 23 was fixed
as the date for the attack. When the
moment came the majority failed to
turn out In some cases the whites
had been warned, so that the raid on
Magemoro was the only successful one.
"Chilembwe was shot in action and
so were many other natives. Several
were court-marlaled and shot, and so
far 16 have been hanged. We are daily
receiving fresh prisoners and the dis
satisfaction is stamped out."
