A if such changes can be brought about in the Economy of the world the ambassador declared a the chances for peace would be much he warned that refusal to change can be dangerous in the present world. A it is not the Active reforming Liberal societies that have been swept into the discard of history. It is on the contrary those which were too proud too rigid too Blind too complacent to change in a five year Veteran As . Ambassador Stevenson said he believed that Maxim As an ideology was dead but the marxism a was the last great outburst of the spirit of prophecy is something else a it stirs the passions of the multitudes a who Are homeless and deprived and who read of the swimming pools and multiple houses and automobiles of the privileged few. Stevenson declared himself an a Optimist a and professed to believe that a we have the Means we have the Choice we can remake the face of the Earth a he said. A but the decision will have to be made Stevenson was awarded a doctor of letters degree by Williams president John e. Sawyer.
