Robert Dexter Talks on "Taking
the Risks of Peace," at
Unitarian Church.
Dr. Frederick B. Fisher Speaks
on Mussolini, and Italy
of Today.
Showing how preparedness has
beep a failure in the history of the
world, Dr. Robert C. Dexter, secre-
tary of the department of social
relations of the American Unitar-
ian association, made a plea for a
new kind of world peace in his ser-
mon Sunday night on "Taking the
Risks of Peace," before the meet-
ing of the Liberal Students' union
df the Unitar nn church.
"The prevention of war by peace-
ful means has never been tried,"
Dr. Dxter declared. "We do not
know entirely what the risks of
peace are but we do know that they
cannot be any greater failure than
the risks of preparedness. In the
l6ng run they can only lead to war
at the worst, and with increased in-
ternationgl cooperation and effec-
tive education they may lead to a
'asting peace."
DrEwn From MacDonald.
Dr. Dexter took his title from a
speech made last autumn by Ram-
say MacDonald before the League
of Nations at Geneva, where he
stated that his government was
prepared in the interests of inter-
national good will to "take the
risks of peace." The speaker point-
ed out that "military-minded" per-
sons are continually referring to
the "risks of war" and stated that
"the result of this attitude has been
a more or less continuous state of
In his sermon on "Mussolini and
Modern Italy," given Sunday night,

the First M e t h o d i s t Episcopal
church, traced the history of
the country from ancient through
medieval and modern times and.
showed the great advances that.
have be made under the di-;
rection of the premier. Dr.
Fisher made constant references to
a number of important documents
and papers and used also the auto-
biography of "Mussolini," which
was published in 1928.
At his morning service, Dr. Fisher
gave the first of a series of three
sermons leading to the Easter sub-
ject "Resurrection." His topic Sun-
day morning was "Sacrifice.
Rev. Anderson Preaches.
In connection with the pre-Easter
period, Rev. Merle H. Anderson,
pastor of the First Presbyterian
church, preached Sunday morning
on "Facing the Glory."
At the Congregational church,
Rev. Allison Ray Heaps gave th
third of a series of Lenten sermons,
his subject for the morning being
"On the Garden." "Fear" was the
topic around which the sermon
centered and will lead to the Easter
services. At the evening meeting,
Prof. George Carrothers,. of the
education school, led a discussion
on "Qualifying for Leadership."
At the Wesleyan guild Sunday
night, Prof. Ora S. Duffendack
gave an account of "The Oberam-
magau Passion Play in Europe."

ing that he cannot expect the gov-
ernment to attempt stabilization of
the 1931 wheat crop, the farmer
today had two alternatives-to
limit production to domestic de-
mand or accept world prices.
The farm board made it clear
Sunday that its grain stabilization

price maintenance indefinitely since
the work is of an emergency nature
and expensive.
Present Purchases Stand.
The board reiterated in a state-
ment, however, it planned no
change in policy in respect to 1930
wheat, now being stabilized through
purchases of surplus stocks.
About 200,000,000 bushels of wheat
have been bought by the stabiliza-
tion corporation out of a $500,000,-
000 revolving fund authorized by
