“No one can accomplish the goal we all seek, namely, peace in this worl, unless we recongnize the fundamental principles posed by the ancient Israelite prophets, “U.S. Attorney General J. Howard McGrath told an audience last night attending the 38th annual anniversary banquet of the National Council of Young Israel at the Hotel Astor.

Armament alone, the Attorney General said, cannot lead the world to the attainment of true liberty for mankind. He emphasized that religion is the key to solving the “chaos, confusion, fear, trepidation and insecurity which abound in the hearts of all men.”
