WOM00SUFFRAGE 00rir00t00. @rbaintb WITH RESERVATIONS Rome: May 28.---Pope Plus XI ex- pressed his approval of the women's sttffrage movement t o a group of twenty-five members of the Ameri- can, English and French delegations to the Congress of the International Women's Suffrage Alliance who call- ed on him last week, but he made it plain hat he couhl not approve of Some portions of the program of the Congress, especially that relating to [ divorce.

It AMERICAN LEGION ADAPTS RESOLUTION AGAINST BIGOTRY Indianapolis, -My'25--A deelara I tion that attempts to introduce re- ligious prejudices into the affairs of the American Legion will be regarded as "unfriendly" acts, is contained in a resolution adopted at the meeting of the national executive committee of the Legion in session here. The reso- lution reads: "The American Legion in national executive session wishes the citizens of our beloved country to know that it must consider as unfriendly to our nation any individual group or organi- zation which condemns a comrade be- cause of creed or belief."

C. W. C. News Service) Washington, D. C., May 28.--The qfies'on of belief in the fundamentals of Christianity was to the forefront in vigorous debates at two important Pr6estant. church conventions held last week. Fundamentals scored a decisive vic- tory at the Presbyterian convention, when forces led by William Jennings Bryan and two Philadelphia minis- ters forced through a resolution di- recting the New York Presbytery to require the preaching in the First Church of New York to conform to Presbyterian doctrines. Liberals had the better of a less important tilt before the Northern Baptist Convention at Atlantic City when attempts of Dr. John Roach Straon of New York to prevent Pres- ident W. H. P. Faunee of Brown Uni- versity rom speaking were defeated" amid jeers and hisses. Bryan Wins Point The sharp division of opinion among the Presby.terians was indicat- ed by the fact that the resolution tionsored by Mr. Bryan and his fol,.. lowing was won by a vote of 438 to 359. ., , The resolution was rected against Dr. Harry Emersofi  Fdsdick, some- t tlme preacher of the First Presbyteri- an Church of New York,,Who, in a re- cent sermon entitled ,"Shall the Fun damenlists Win ?" aligned himself by inference with the liberals and fnade a plea for "tolerant" viewpoint. Liberal speakers asserted that en- oreement '. of the-. fundamentalists' ..... strict interpretation . of .the doctrine wouhr drive thousands of liberal from. te church and set hack the cause of Christianity. Dr. Fosdick is not a Presbyteriar bu a pastor of the Baptist church, filling the First Presbyterian pulpit occasionally as a supply minister. SOVIm OBLIGED TO MODERATE IN REPLY TO BRITAIN Washington, May 27.By agreeing' to "withdraw" the two n6tes Signed by Weinstein addressed to the Brit z.: ish Commissioner in Moow in reply to his relresentations concerning the trial and" sentence of the Catholic ec- deslasties, the soviet government has eliminatea the question Of its barbar- ous anti-religious policy from the ne- gotiations with Great. Britain, To that extent the communist government has beeit obliged to moderate the trucu- ]e]me it displayed when it was first deluged with an international flood of pr0test, against the tragic "trial" oF Msgr. Buckiewicz and his associates. Whether this will hav e any permanent effec upon the soviet anti-religious perseetirs is doubtful, according to the diplomatic viewpoint. The intimations from Krassin, the soviet envoy in London, that the Mos, cow government would welcome the prospect of negotiations with the United States looking to the estab- lishrent of Commercial relations have been received with silence in official quaiters in Washington. The possi- bility of entering into any relations with the present government in Mos- cow is so remote that it is not con- sidered at all.
