WASHINGTON, Nov. ex- hundred Presbyterian churches in Perience Plainly shows the necessity the United States were advised to- day that the teachings of Jesus Christ would solve the whole indus- trial problem. These churches were urged by Dr. John McDowell, direc- tor of the social service division of the -Presbyterian New Era move- ment to apply the teachings of Jes- us to the solution of Industrial questions. Dr. McDowell declared that the 15th verse of the 18th chapter of Matthew constituted "the law of brotherhood, conciliation and arbi- tration "and he urged its applica- tion to present day industrial moves. The Bible reference reads: if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell j him his fault between thee and him alone; if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained ttiy brother." Dr. McDowell urged the church members and pastors to got in touch with outstanding groups of their as employers and of education and for fundamental reorganization of the army and of the war department itself, Secretary Baker declared jo- day in his annual report. He recoi.i- mended that the emergency organiza- tion, reduced to peace-time made permanent, and approved' the general staff bill for a regular es- tablishment "adequate in size to be the nucleus of any great military mobilization the country may oe call- ed upon to make" and backed up by a, system of universal training; "In such a, Mr. Baker said, "the accent is upon the citizen and not the soldier; the officers be- coming a permanent corps ot experts and the men a body temporarily de- voting a portion of their time to military training in order that they may enter civil life with a sense of national service and with superior equipment for success." "It is to ho said, denying any danger of mili- tarism, "that an army could be formed of Americans, educated in. the learn their liberties. The World War has shown of view and side with them when j quite cleariy that renect right. I said, "that event- ually there will be, industrial courts, similar to city, state and federal courts, in which labor disputes can be solved. These counts would be graded as are the present local courts with the right of appeal." Dr. McDowell called attention to spirit of the people from whom th iy come rather than create a spirit of their own, so that the size of the army js not so important from the point of view now under considera- tion as the kind of an army."
