Transfer of George N Peek now agricultural adjustment administra tor to the national recovery admin istration under Gen Hugh S John son to take over the agriculture codes newly placed there appeared today as likely to be decided upon by President Roosevelt as a solution of disagreements in the agricultural department that have delayed act ion on these important codes This prospect developed as

concept of a religion to fit t spiritual needs of men and women in a rapidly changing eco j nomic picture was suggested today by Secretary Wallace in a speech before the federal council of Churches of Christ in America The problem of statesmanship is to mold a policy leading toward a higher state of humanity and to stick by that policy and make it seem desirable to the people In spite of short time political pres sure to the contrary he saici True statesmanship and true re ligion therefore have much in com mon HovlfiWs Chnrrh History Reviewing the history of the church and the influence of ma terialism on the Protestant faith he said that to enter the kingdom of heaven brought to earth and ex pressed in terms of rich material ife it will be necessary to have n reformation even greater than that of Luther and Calvin The social machines set up by this administration will break down unless they are inspired by met who in Uieir hearts catch a larger vision than the hard driving profit motives of the past Must Chungo Attitude He continued More than that the mcttinrthestreetmuat change their attitude na ture of man and the ncture of hu man society They must develop the capacity to envision a cooper ative objective and be willing to pay the price to attain it The old faith in endless mechan ical progress and the beliefs in con tinual rising land values and higher wages lias been rudely shaken Wal lace said but it will be impossible to cuter into the still almost limit less possibilities or science and in vention until we have acquired a new faith a faith which is based on a richer concept of the potentialities of human nature than that of the economists scientists and business men of the nineteenth century Religious Keynote I am wondering if the religion we shall need during the next hun dred years will not have much more in common with the Christianity of the second and third centuries or possibly even with that of the mid dle ages than with the protestan tism of the past 100 years he added The religious keynote the econ omic keynote the scientific keynote of the new age must be the over whelming realization that mankind now has such mental and spiritual powers and such control over na ture that the doctrine of the strug gle for existence is definitely out moded and replaced by the higher law of cooperation GOES ON RECORD FOR RESOLUTION BY81T016VOTE
