They will be attended by thousands. Similar gatherings will take place in 63 other countries for the Myca is world wide and in them probably millions will participate. At the other end of the Hundred years Span lies a meeting of a few Young men on june 6, 1844, in the room of a Young assistant at a London drapery Ware House. Lying almost within the Shadow of St. Paul a the room was destroyed by German bombs in the Blitz. The Young Man too died in 1905, at the age of 84, possessed of Many material riches for he Rose from assistant to proprietor of the business and was knighted by Queen Victoria for his services to the cause of humanity. However his own inspiration and the in fluence of the movement which he brought into being remain. Youths on principles of christianity citizenship and sportsman slip. There is thus a vital link1 ? Between the development or today and that expressed desire or the London meeting of 1844 to provide i a wholesome environment for 1 youths and boys. Much As it has done i the past j greater openings will certainly re. Veal themselves in the future and with the inspiration derived from the Success of its first Hundred years the Myca will be fitted to organisation and spirit to seize them. Prominent in that programme will be an Extension of boys work and an Active part to the care and restoration to civil life of demobilised servicemen. War service successful to its peace Aims the Myca has been Beneficent to War. In the late i nineties of last Century it obtained permission to open canteens i for the sate of comforts and to pro Ivalde marquees for entertainment and meeting places at military j Camps in England. Its first big test was in the Boer War. Fifty trained workers and a big body of voluntary helpers set up centres at fixed Camps along lines of communications and later wherever i the situation permitted service be ing Given to bodies of troops. At the cad of the Campaign the two original marquees at Orange River i and Enslin had developed into an i enthusiastic and efficient organisation which won the warm approval of lord Roberts. The last War found the Myca operating on an International scale. The London Headquarters became the Centre of the Empire Myca War organisation and by 1918 work was on a colossal scale with 6.000 j full or part time workers and a. Turnover of More than �21 million. There were 1500 Myca centres in Britain 479 to France and about 200 More to various other War spheres. I in Australia the Myca had be come associated with military work in 1910. And when the first contingent sailed in 1914 five Myca men went with it. They organised what entertainments they could and at the beginning of training in Egypt a Myca hut in the desert provided the Only decent amusement Short of Cairo. The i australian Myca was at Gallipoli. I too with a canteen at Anzac. Later the organisation had Cen a tres at the Aldwyck theatre in i London and various others in France and at ports on the sea route to Australia. For All its War service the Myca raised and spent �831.000. In this War the Myca representatives and the great organisation behind them were with the troops from the Start. Men from the Middle East spoke Eulo Gies of the Myca. The same tradition has been carried into new Guinea. The Myca Man. No mat Ter How hard the Way has been up with the Foremost troops. He was one of the first to at Stelberg and at shaggy Ridge Laden almost to exhaustion Point with packs and within an hour had hot Coffee and biscuits for the weary troops. Such deeds have made the red Triangle a Symbol of devoted and unfailing front line service. His name was George Wil hams. A son of the soil but obviously not Cut out for a i Fanner he went to London when 19, and foun a work with the drapery firm of Hitchcock Andi i Rogers at a salary of �40 a year. With daily hours of from 7 . To 8 run. In the Winter and an hour longer in the summer. From the Start. Williams was a. Force for Good in the establish-1 ment and after a time he got a j group of fellow workers of the same Christian principles As him self to meet in his room above the shop the living in system was then general Lor prayer and Earnest discussion. All were impressed by the part which such gatherings might play in the life of Young men of their Day. In a few months such was the inspiration of Williams s virile christianity that it was said that i it was impossible for a member of i the Hitchcock and Rogers s staff i Mot to be a Christian. The proprietors heartily approved of the i meetings and of the objects of the. Group. The question then arose. I could the innovation not be exp tended to Oiler warehouses. The answer was the formation. I at a meeting attended by 12 Young men in Williams s room of the Young men s Christian association. Its Constitution drafted a few Days later stated that its object was the improvement of the i spiritual condition of Young men in the drapery and other trades the i provision was made for religious meetings social Tea meetings and a fortnightly general meeting it i being recognised that one of the first needs would be the provision of a place where Young men could meet for wholesome entertain ment. Spread to continent the venture was a Success almost from the Start. Even in its first year the association extended its scope to embrace material improvement societies i which unconverted Young men would assist and feel and the Constitution was soon amended to read the improvement of the spiritual and mental condition of Young even thus Early there was Chi Dent the Toca emphasis on spiritual mental and social improvement. The physical aspect was to come later. The engagement of a full time j officer the acquisition of More at-1 Tractive rooms and Extension of the movement to the provinces Foll Lowed quickly and by 1851 there were eight centres in London and one each at 14 other cities in great Britain. Next followed a spread to the continent and in Little More than a decade after the first meeting there were 246 Myca s in France Switzerland Germany Holland and Scandinavia. In the same year there were 36 associations in the United states where Young men of the same mind and As Williams had been stimulated by what they heard from London and bad adopted the Myca As their pattern. The International aspect of Myca which has become of prime importance in creating Bonds of world Fellowship had its first Tan Gible expression at the first world conference in Paris to 1855. Twelve countries representing 329 associations and 30.360 members took part in die conference which was toe forerunner of meetings in other countries which did much to rein Force links Between Young men of Many nations. Up to the outbreak of War 20 such congresses had been held the Jubilee meeting having taken place to London in 1894. Although there have been Vicissitudes the development of Myca in the intervening 50 years has been fairly constant. Today there Are 10,500 Myca s operating in 64 countries with a membership of about two million. Not Only to its expansion of membership and the acquisition of property by its organisations in nearly every Large City of the worlds an impressive building bearing the sign of the Myca but in the development of its policy the Myca owes much to the stimulus of its bodies in the United states and Canada. Physical improvement was adopted As one of its objects Only after much heart searching but it has proved a splendid venture. So there has come about the Symbol of the red Triangle wit hits message. Spirit. Mind and Adelaide distinction it would appear that Adelaide has the distinction of having had the first Myca in a do. Minion if not the first outside England. On february 7, 1850. A meeting of Young men at Otto Way s hotel was addressed by a chemist named Bosisto who had been a member of the Myca in England. Probably an association was formed the same year for to december. 1850. There was held a meeting of about 200 Young men under the Aegis of the South australian Christian Young men s Mutual improvement society one or whose objects was the intellectual and spiritual improvement of its by 1861 there was in existence an Adelaide Branch of the London Myca. Which held meetings on the same lines As its Parent body at a Coffee Palace. However the exodus of Young men to the Gold Fields brought it to an end. The present association dates from 1878 it had the backing of Many of the leading citizens of the state and its original Constitution was signed by 535 Young men developments of the last decade have shown the present buildings inadequate for the Calls made on i them and partly from pressure on i accommodation the association is i looking toward expansion in the suburbs auxiliaries to provide a wholesome environment for boys and youths have been initiated Al Walkerville. Theberton and Mit Cham the expansion applies particularly to boys work. There Are approximately 450 enrolments in that division and athletic classes. I Camps and competitions of various i kinds have proved their popularity i and effectiveness in moulding the soul of England its poetry and prose by Walter Murdoch at our last parting i re Quested you to Brood on the question which six writers and which six books would you name if a foreigner asked you for something that would help him to understand the spirit of England and i said i was going to do some brooding on the same question myself. I bad no idea How difficult was the ques Tion i had asked you to tackle. In the course of one s Reading one often comes across a passage about which one feels that no Frenchman no German no italian even no Scotchman could have written it. But to name a whole Book of which the same thing can be said to name an author whom one feels to be As essentially eng Lish As Rabelais and Voltaire Are essentially French Here is some thing to task our wits. Speaking for myself i have no hesitation about the first two writers on my list. They Are Shakespeare and Dickens. I shall not argue about these two. I should name them to my foreign enquirer without a qualm with out a qualification without a pro Bably or a perhaps. Through the Mouths of these two men. England Speaks to the world at Large. J i ? ? # ? Yod May object that shakes Peare is not English but Universal Shakespeare is not our poet but the world says Landor himself an englishman to the Backbone. But sir waiter Raleigh not Queen Elizabeth s sir Walter but the Oxford professor who wrote the his tory of the air Force in the last War spoke More truly i think there is no National poet of any great nation whatsoever who is so completely representative of his own people As Shakespeare is representative of the upon no other of our writers says Mancile Dixon is the stamp of Nis country s spirit so clearly and so firmly 11 you doubt read any of his plays no matter which. Head. Lor instance. A Midsummer night s the scene is set in Athens and a Wood near it but we have not read far Belore we ? become Ana re that the Vood is not i near Athens but near Stratford j can anyone believe that Bottom. I the Weaver and snug the Joiner la re greeks puck belongs to la Inland but an English fairy land. Madr in England is stamped on every scene of this play. Shakespeare is English in his in tense love of his native land this dear dear land. This precious Stone set in the Silver the is English in his love of the. Open air nine tenths of Bis work has an out door setting. He is English in Bis humor which is somehow different from the humor of any other country. He is eng Lish in Bis deep sense of morality and his deep distrust of moral philosophy. Above All he is eng Lish in Bis mingling of laughter and tears of High poetry and practical sagacity of sound sense and soaring nonsense. It is an English mixture. Shakespeare loves the eccentric the oddity the individual who stands on Bis own feet and dares to be unlike anybody else. His plays Are a gallery of such characters and so Are the novels of Dickens. Dickens is thoroughly in glib and there is not a typical English Man to be found in his books. And Here he is True to life for there is no such tiling As a typical englishman. If you Are typical you Are not in ii i the English Are a nation of eccentrics. The englishman loves to ride Bis own Hobby horse and will die for his right to ride it. He Bates to be interfered with. It is his deep est hatred. David Copperfield is a Rich Treasury of oddities with a few i colourless and insipid characters such As the hero who might belong to any nation. Some Wise acres accuse Dickens of painting not portraits but caricatures recalling a recent controversy in australian Art circles. Most of us have our Comers rubbed off in social life so that we Are standardised in appearance. Dickens looks past appearance to re by he knows that an englishman sinner self never has its Corners rubbed off and he paints English men and women with their Corners intact. We Call his portraits caricatures Only be cause we Are not used to getting past the outward semblance to the self. Micawber and Peck sniff and mrs. Gamp and Uriah Heep Are truly English in their oddity i the English Are. A nation of oddities ? or. If you insist on a longer word. Of individualists. I in Dickens. As in Shakespeare you see strange endings you Floii pathos never far from rollicking humor you find shrewd common sense Check by jowl with sheer sentimentalism you find keen criticism of the social system and a scorn or All theories of society. We cannot imagine Dickens sitting Rywin to think out the principles of politics or any philosophy. The English have an inveterate Dis taste for theory for systematic i thinking for Genera principles for i philosophy perhaps this is their strength. Perhaps it is their weak Ness. I shall not argue the Point. Shakespeare s plays for our a first Book David Hopper 1 Field for our second and our third i think it must be Boswell s Johnson. Boswell was a Scot it is True but he managed to write one of the most English of books and to paint a vivid portrait of one of the most English of men English in his strength and in his weakness in his nobility and in Bis Absurdity with Bis shattering commonsense and his unshakeable prejudices. Read the Book in spite of its tedious passages not for the Central figure alone but for his Circle the Little Circle of eccentrics real people not fictitious who make up Johnson s world a bit of England the England of the 18th Century the England of All the centuries. After those three Shakespeare. Dickens Boswell the Competition becomes too fierce for me. I close my eyes look along an imaginary bookshelf and Quad at the thought of choosing. Of novelists nest to Dickens and thinking not of artistry but of englishby. I would place Fielding whose Joseph i Andrews i prefer to the More famous Tom Jones to read it is i to breathe English air. But i doubt if even Fielding was More essentially English than h. G. Wells was in Bis earlier less prophetic Days is there a Book More English in atmosphere than or. Polly Audi we must not forget George borrow. "i-avengro1 an its sequel give us a portrait of one More i eccentric. For modern poetry Noth j ing will serve our purpose so Well As a volume of Tennyson. Not the greatest but the most English of them All. And How about bar Chester towers and the re turn of the native and a volume of Gilbert Chesterton s essays and but i think i must have passed the half dozen lines. If our foreign Friend were to limit himself to my first two names and read Only Shakespeare and Dickens i believe that assuming him to be an intelligent foreigner he would find himself gradually coming to understand the English. 1 with their strength and their weak Ness with their sense of religion and their Eye for business with the ? poetry in them and the prose the patience and the passion that admirable and exasperating nation a nation of shopkeepers and a nation of heroes above All a nation which knows How to use its incorrigible sense of humor for its True purpose which is. To enable one to laugh tone s own weak Nesses. War tragedy deplored Pope on rational peace Prospect australian associated press London june 2. After referring to the miseries and destruction caused by the War to Italy the Pope to a broadcast address today said that a belief that one Side aimed to destroy a nation s whole life might at present prevent some people from Starling negotiations for a rational peace. The Pope who was addressing members of the College of Cardi nals said events in the past year have reached grave and atrocious pro portions which horrify All Chris Tian and human feelings. We deplore the increasing tragedies destruction ruin and death which Only a year ago would have appeared impossible. ? the sacred soil around St Peters the eternal City and the Mother of civilisation has had experience of present Day methods of War. This kind of War is Remote from All that once had been considered inviolable. We must nevertheless Point out that the menace of air attacks against the extra territorial areas of Rome have been conducted with greater care. We still cherish the Hope that this More moderate tendency will continue and that Rome will be spared at All costs from becoming a theatre of War. We repeat tha whoever dared to lift a hand against the sacred territory or Rome would be guilty of Matricides before the world and god s eternal Justice. In few other places to Italy or throughout the world is there such misery As to Rome where the entire mass of people is suffering this army or miserable people in creases daily. We have opened negotiations for bringing food to Rome by sea but a reply is still awaited from one of the belligerents. Humanity is seemingly faced with either Victory or utter destruction. There must be Guaran teef.�?r peace and against uie possibilities of War. Peace imposed by one belligerent by Force of arms and not by just principles cannot guarantee a just peace a just policy must give the Defeated nation a dignified place. The victors must show tolerance and some generosity tothe Defeated enemy. A belief that the enemy alms at destroying a nation s whole life May at present prevent some people who believe in a realistic and rational peace from being pre pared to Start new Coupon Issue today and tomorrow new Coupon books for clothing and food for the new ration year beginning on monday will be is sued from about 830 centres throughout the state today and tomorrow.

Hull and Mem Bers of the Senate foreign relations committee bad resulted in no commitment of the committee much less the Senate As a whole or the Republican party stated senator Arthur Vandenberg. Rank lne Republican member Vandenberg s statement i which was made to the washing ton correspondent of the North american newspaper Alliance is significant because or. Hull invited the foreign ministers of Britain. Russia and China to Dis cuss the Post War set up follow-1 ing his talks with senators. The statement also emphasises that there is no certainty that the final j plan approved by the four Powers win be endorsed by the Senate. Senator Vandenberg said that the talks with or. Hull were mutually helpful in a preliminary exploration of peace making subjects. There had been agreement that 1. There must be an effective Post War International organisation to keen peace. 2. The preparation of these plans should proceed immediately in conversations with the allies. 3. The Senate foreign affairs committee is at or.
