To the Editor of the Crimson:

Bishop Lawrence urges us "to risk our lives" in attacking our neighbors; Bishop Manning speaks of the "vast amount of mistaken and really un-Christian teaching about peace"; and the late Cardinal Verdier said "the war is a holy crusade."

The ministers of Christ thus can sanction men in their slaying of one another in war. Yet the great lesson which Christ's way of life taught to a warlike world was the victory of love over force. We turn to the Christian religion for inspiration in this matter. How discouraging it is when its leaders pledge Christ's support for our bloody strivings for victory. George B. Mathues,   Secretary,   Harvard Pacifist Association.
