Brent. of the Protestant Episcopal Church, advocated "rooting out" the Ten Commandments from the prayer book in an address to two hundred students for the ministry be- fore whom he declared that "too ninny of us Christians still look on the Ten Commandments as forming the whole moral responsibility." The prelate, who wax formerly sen- ior chaplain of the American Expedi- tionary Forces, said that he would "root at once and for all those in- complete Ten Cbmmandments and put in their places the Christian sum- mary of the law of love-duty to God and neighbor. " The preamble to the Legion Consti- tution to which the resolution pledges support, reads as follows: "For God and-Country, we associate ourselves together for the following purposes: "To uphold and defend the Consti- tution of the United States of Ameri- ca; to maintain law and order; to fos- ter and perpetuate a one hundred per cent Americanism; to preserve the memories and incidents of our asso- ciation in the Great War; to incul- cate a sense of individual obligation to the community, state and nation; to combat the autocracy of both the classes and the masses; to make right the master of might; to promote peace and good will on earth; to safe- guard and transmit to posterity the. principles of justice, freedom and de- mocracy; to consecrate the sanctity of our comradeship by our devotion to mutual helpfulness." The Rev. William P. O'Connor, Na- tional Chaplain of the" American Le- gion,resided at the meeting at which the resolution was adopted. YORK CITY SENDS NUN TO SPECIAL SCHOOL TO TEACH RELIGION (By N.
