SAYS MUST TAKE COATS OFF TO TIE FUTURE That Bolshevism, which but a few months ago was a hideous dream of far away Russia, is considered a present, living reality in this coun try and In Portland and a factor to be dealt with In the great new era Is shown by the fact that this symbol Ism of social unrest Is mentioned again and again like an ever recur ring theme In the talks delivered by the nationally known speakers who have appeared at the two days' ses sion which has launched the New Era movement of the Presbyterian church In Portland. "We may take off our hats to the past, - bnt we've got to take off our coats to the future," said W. E. Bie derwolf, of Chicago, secretary of the Family Altar league this morning. "We will never get rid of anarchy and Bolshevism, divorce and gamb ling until we push the forces of onr endeavor across the threshold of the home. We can't mobilize the church against these forces properly and ef ficiently until we first mobilize the home." . In urging the observance of fam ily worship, he said that "we can no - more expect a rose to blossom forth from a covering of Ice than we can except a holy life to emerge from the conditions which surround , the average American child." "Do that community service most needed, whether It be fighting the Bolshevikl principles of anarchy. fighting the spread of venereal di sease, fighting for prohibition, for clean streets or what not," la the ur gent .plea made by Dr. A. W. Halsey yesterday. "But while we do the ' 'natural' things let us not' lose our faith In the supernatural. This church will be false to Its mission If It does not catch a vision of a pos sible new world to emerge from the present ship-wrecked' world. Think of. the slumbering possibilities In the peace conference now In progress. It Is almost impossible to realize the tremendous suffering the peoples of , the world have gone through and now face and in the words of Elihu Root, the proposed league will have the strength of straw unless based upon the teaching of Christianity."
