M . FORD SAYS:
Henry Ford in his life time has
probabfly received more free publicity !lJ
than any one individual, not to except
the present Prince of Wales or the re-
tired Kaiser. Hence it is that his
opinions are given a wide hearing. He
is without doubt the greatest figure
the industrial world has ever seen, and
he controls resources almost beyond
human conception.Ithis little wonder
that when he speaks the world liter-
ally opens its mouth and drinks in
the words of the oracle.
Of course he isn't always right. No
human being could be. Indeed he
makes his full share of impossible
predictions and unjustified comments.
Durng the war he tried to stop the
conflict by traveling with a few pa-
cifists to Europe in a peace ship. This
bit of idealistic foolishness was pooh-
ed at by most of the world-as it hap-
pens, it seems now that he may have
had a rather good idea though it was
of course impossible of execution. Now
he literally confounds the millions

by his statement that airplanes will
stop future wars. To those who have
been accustomed to scan the daily
newspapers and scientific journals
this will seem little short of ridic-
ulous. The airplane is generally
designated a one of those fiendish
war weapons that are going to destroy
civilization.
But Henry Ford says: "The airplane,
will force the end of warfare, alone
and unaided!" And that's that.
THREE WEEKS
The "Gloomy Dean" of St. Paul's
cathedral, London, who is now spend- :
ing three weeks in America lecturing
on various religious and social prob-
lems, is setting all those who are
hearing him or reading what he has1
to say to thinking about many of the !
fundamental things in modern life.'
One of the most interesting things
about the Very Rev. William R. Inge,
is that, in spite of his conservative
views on the present day "sex books,"
his more or less pessimistic attitude
toward civilization, of which he de-
clared, "I'm not sure it has arrived
yet," and his opposition to the spread
of birth control literature, as a theo-!
logian he might be the object of
severe criticism as an heretic. ;
Even in England, where the church
has long fought out the absurd battles
over evolution and the interpretation
of the scriptures which are now trou-

HE co-ordination of commercial strength, arch-
itectural vision and engineering skill which
created this titanic quadruple office building repre-
sents the motive and creative force which has turned
the eyes of the world toward this type of American
architecture.
This, the largest office building in the world, pos-
sesses fundamentally magnificent largeness in its
conception, and a clean-cut directness in its execu-
tion which place it among the most significant of
American buildings.
With such existing structural achievements no arch-
itectural future is impossible, no project too vast
or too complex to come readily to our imagination.
Certainly modern invention-modern engineering
skill an organization, will prove more than equal
to the demands of the architecture'of the future.
