A Wrong Conception.
His principal contention was that
the Americana have an ontlrely wrong
conception of itho beauty, tho slzo,
and tho resources of Africa. He af
firmed, however, that Africa Is unclv-

commorco which African resources
could give. But Africans are mostly
heathens and savages. As a business
proposition Isn't It worth while to civ
ilize them? As a religious proposi
tion, shouldn't we clvlllzo them?
With these questions ns a basis for
work,, we wJlL co-operate with God in
an effort to ovangellzo Africa and tho
world. We can do It and wo will."

purpose of this interdenominational
movement," he said, "Is to endeavor
to reach the whole of tho world with
the gospel message In this generation.
It Is educational in charactor, no now
organization is created, and Its ulti
