tian Association Folio Oat
Snarireatlon Made hy Frea.
Omaha churches yesterday observed
Peace day, the date named by President
Wilson's proclamation asking that all
Americans should unite in prayer for the
ending of the great Kuropean war and
all other armed strifeT"- -
Sentiment of most Omaha pastors as
expressed by them yeBterday Is strongly
opposed to war, but wlthit Is the belief
that, as part, of the Inscrutable plana of
the Deity, good In some form must result.
A mass meeting In observance of Peace
day was held at the Young Men's Chris
tian association In the afternoon, at
which William Balrd, who secured his
knowledge of conditions In the warring
countries at first hand, delivered an ail
dress. Members of the Rotary club ob
served the day by attending the services
at All Paints' church.
At Trinity cathedral Pean Tancock,
strongly condemning war as butchery and
the creator, erf desolation and charity
dependent women and children, empha
sised that "All things work together for
good to those that love God."
Offering for Nnfferera.
The entire offerings of the day at the
cathedral were given to the Red Cross
for the alleviation of suffering In the
war-stricken countries. The day was
marked here, as In most of the other
churches, by special services, including
holy communion and a musical program.
The dean's sermon exemplified trust In
God during the darkest wartime the world
has known. "It is hard to believe that
all things work together for good," he
said, "but harder not to believe it.
"Strip war of Its fine phrases about
'dying for one's country' and yon have
only butchery and desolation, resulting in
homeless women and children, dependent
upon charity. All this is done to satisfy
the whim of some tyrant or nobleman.
nut we know beyond doubt that 'All
things work together for good to those
that love God.' This Is the assurance to
which to cling. Note that they to wKom
good Is to come are 'those that love Ood.'
This distinction Is based not on class dis
crimination, but on love, and Ood Him
self la love."

The observance of Germany day marks
an epoch In the life of every (Jernian

of a holiday. It murks the anniversary
of the coming of tho first large ajrd per

Pastorifus, with several hundred men,
women and children from Krefeld, ltlirln
province, Germany, came to America and
settled at Germantown, Pa., where they
engaged in all lines of business, includ
ing manufacturing and farming.
While small colonies of Germans had
long prior to this settled In New York
and as far north as Maine, the German
town settlement was, according to German-Americans,
considered the real com
