MINISTERS APPEAL F Baptists Declare Whole Fabric of Constitution Is in Dan ger of Rending DR. CRAFTS HITS MOVIES lluptist ministers, In their weekly conference, today, urged the posting In all churches of a warning issued by the Judicial section of the American liar Association against disregard of laws. The warning asserts that dragon teeth nre being sewed by disregard of the prohibition law by influential busi ness men utul that the inevitable result will be ii collapse, of all laws. The recommendation was made by the llev. Samuel Zane Itatten in ti report of the Civic ItlffhtceuH Committee. "Kducntlen nsd morals arc ljMially far abend of lcglsliitlen." the minister said, "but nt present the opposite seems te held trun: that legislation is nhead. Wc nre facing n serious crisis In tbe temperance movement nnd one which gees deeper and strikes at the very foundntlen of our civilization, iininely, the disregard of ail law that comes from open violation of temperance laws. "The committee feels that every church should place iu n conspicuous place the warning nleng this line re cently gotten out by the judicial section of the American Itur Association, where nil may see It." The speaker also urged it catnpnlgn in the churches te create sentiment which will compel stricter enforcement nxainst automobile drivers. "An average et one person is killed In Philadelphia by ittitomebllw every day," he Mild. "That average should be greatly reduced, l.lfc conies llrst. It muy be necessary te put people in Jail In order te slew down automobiles, but it should be clone. If we create nt- mespheru for this, we may be ablu te create conviction in the courts. It U up te us te help step this slaughter," he added, ".and we can de it by bring ing the facts before the people.

" Dr. Crafts said. "Will HaS is an honorable man. but he cannot lie expected te de nil the work of elimi nating the undesirable stuff that per meates the Industry. And 1 may udd l but there is no industry iu America that Is se little controlled by Ameri cans." The speaker also mentioned ninny ether bills nnd amendments pending in Congress, principal among them being one te enact a universal divorce law. that would prevent persons divorced from marrying within n jeur after they lecelved their decree.

Wants Experts Admitted te Conference Discussion en Control of Straits liV Aiseciattd I'rest I-Ausnnne, Dec. II.

The question of hew control of the Turkish Htraitn will be administered whether through some body under the League of Nations or under some In ternational unit wholly beparnte from the League Is Jicing generally nsked by members of the Near East confer ence delegations which have no repre sentatives among thu military and naval experts who nre new discussing the Straits problem informally with the Turks. Inasmuch as llussia. Turkey nnd America ure net members of the League of Nations there xveuld doubtless be strong objection te any plan te make control of tin, Strnits n l.niicne affair. Lord Curzon bus enlv once alluded te n plan' for the administration of the watcrwny. and then only In the most indefinite wny, saying that It had net been decided whether regulation of the straits would lie placed under tne League or some ether organization. lsiuet Pasbu nnd his itiu.isii U..SO elates are a little mere friendlv te tlie League Idea than nre Foreign Minister Tchltcherii, und the ether belshevik lenders, who denounce It at every en pertunlty, declaring ilmt the organiza tion of nations is useless, iiiiismuch us the United Slates does net belong. Although some of the French dele gates have been striving hard te get the conference te declare u ('hristuius holiday, the negotiations ure in siicli.un uncertain state that Lord Curzon find many ether delegates regard a long va cation ns undesirable. It new seems unlikely that there will be n cessation of the discussions for longer than Christmun Duy, unless it is possible te sign some sort of a tenta tive agreement or protocol before tbut time.
