COOLIDGE ASKS FOR
SUPPORT FOR PEACE
(Continued from page 1)
tainment of such an object, in
view of the present mentality of
mankind, would greatly and
necessarily be aided by interna
tional treaties limiting the "use
and size" of armaments. Just be
cause of the fears, jealousies and
other human failings of nations,
he continued, it is "well for them
to take counsel together," to try
to "discard the old theory of rely
ing entirely on force and to adopt
the method of relying more on
"I do not believe we can ad
vance the policy of peace by a re
turn to the policy of competitive
armaments," he asserted. "While
I favor an adequate arjny and
navy, 1 am opposed to any effort
to militarize this nation. When
that method has been worked out
to its logical consequences, the re
sult has always been a complete
failure. We can render no better
service to humanity than to put
forth all our influence to prevent
the world from slipping back into
the grasp of that ravaging system.
Truth and faith and justice have
a power of their own in which we
are justified in placing a very
"In nations. Individuals have
their counterpart. As we can ex
pect some help from domestic
laws, so we can expect some help
from international covenants.
While each represents the best
that humanity can do at this time,
neither in themselves are suffi
cient. As it is necessary to
change the heart of the individual
so it is necessary to change the
heart of nations. This has often
been referred to as moral dis

being made in its application lies
in the fact that it does not come
Referring to the Christmas sea

and added that if the world could
achieve complete moral disarma

too much, of, international rela
tionship is based on fear.
"Nations rejoice in the fact that
they have courage to fight each
other,"' he'eontinued. "When will
the time come that they have
courage to trust each other?"
Mr. Coqlidge said he believed
a wider understanding of the
spirit of mutual service is grow
ing in the world but that this
"does not run counter to the
theory of independence." In the
days of Washington, the president
asserted, the colonies determined
to resist but Americans "did not
then and do not now fail to recogr
nize that they are a part of the
civilized world and that they owe
not only to themselves but to
others great obligations.
"But they were determined then
and are determined now to be the
masters of their own destiny and
the judges of their own conduct,"
he added. "They knew and we
ought to know, that unless we can
be Americans we cannot be any
thing. Unless we look after our-'
selves we cannot look after any
body else. The obligations of civi
lization are reciprocal. The same
consideration that we owe to
others they owe to us."
Only the "influences of religion
and education" in the opinion of
President Coolidge could give
American citizens a full sense of
their civic duties and give Ameri
can political institutions their full
force by allowing intelligent and
direct intervention of the people."
-By- religion I do not mean."
he continued, "either fanaticism
or bigotry; by education I do not
mean the cant of the schools: hut
a broad and tolerant faith, loving
tny neighbor as thyself, and a
training and experience that en
ables the human mind to see into
the heart of things."
