Appeal from Europe to Break Down
Traditions and Bring1 About
Preventive of War. ,
U'orrespnnrt'-i f of thr Associated I'r.
GENEVA, April 22. The World
Union of Women recently foundod
here by Mrs. Clara (iuthrle Cocke of
New Orleans, daughter of the late
Judge E. J. Merrick, chief Justice of
Louisiana. Is receiving support and
members from all parts of the world.
The Union, ' ef tabllr.hed upon thi
common basis of womanly compas
sion, which we shall endeavor to
manifest Justly In rational thought
and act," has insned the following
address to American women:
Ton havs been a tower of strength
to the perncJteil and desolated WrUnia
of the frightful rataslro;he whl'h . has
overtaken Europe. !n arest wave of
sympathy you ihvp equipped ships of
mercy with focd and clothing an! you
have given nobly, while all tlio world
ha rrfsrrtod you wit It admiration.
"But there exists now a vaster iucs
tinn a more Important need. wh!-h the
women of Kuroi-e call upon you to hi-lp
them solve. It Is tho eonstrurtlon of the
means to present the ponelhtl'.ty of a re
currence of the cruel event through
which we -are forced to llvo.
Hampered hy Tradlllan.
"This problem U unfortunately a much
more complicated and difficult one when
seen at clou range, from the. very enter
of tha storm, than when viewed from
'across the ocean. We are hampered here
hi Kurop 4v wlrt d.vM-rnce of men
tality of age-old traditions and by the
existing chaos from which you In Amer
ica do not aufler.
"We listen with admiration to the
splendid, precipe, and definite prograjns
Which your peaca psrtles havo been ahls
lo draw, up. but- we acknowledge aadly
that under the circumstances surround
ing ua on the European continent 'they
would be impossible for us to adopt.
"And yst peace must be prepared and
, tha women of Kurope must undertake
thla preparation here. Hut they must do
It In their own way and In accord with
the many different mentalities of tint
many respective nations. It Is one thing
to desire peace and another to gel It.
"Our program may therefore seem to
you very simple, almost rudimentary,
possibly lacking In decision and In bold
nes. But It you will think of It, It Is
In reality a very courageous thing which
we have undertaken; to declare, war
agalnct wkr among peoples who are
undes the spell of the glories of militar
ism: to spread the doctrine of fraternal
love and indulgence where human hate
Is rampant; to work for Internationalism
emnnff those whose souls are aflame
with national patriotism! ; to teach the
value of Individual effort when Individ
ual, rtjjht has never been at so great a
discount. Is It-not a great, brave task
ami one lor Which united'- womanhood, is
. peculiarly fitted . . .
"There are many things which we be
liev In. we could not Incorporate
In our program because we musf first
unite upon a basis of humanity and pot
of human opinions. . ' 1
."We are therefore . starting out In a
ruined world, content te begin humbly
preparing the ground and sowing the
seeds of peace, to try and counteract the
evil which' makes war possible, and to
suppress the frightful bitterness which
a tha Inevitable aftermath of war does
more thsn aught else to irdpede mutual
progress. ' , ' ' ''
We are content- te bogia . humbly at
the very bottom. bo'uso we believe that
It Is the only beginning possible to us;
but we expect, step by step, to arrive to.
get1)r at a, wise understanding of the
deep and ' mysterious causes of war and
a comprehension of what Is necessary to
establish end maintain peace. .
"We expect lo co-operate In a realisa
tion which shall grant Individual rights
and national rights and shall make of the
I'alaca of Feaca (now closed and mockod
In all the beauty of tie Inspiration), a
temple of Justice, where national, differ
ence shall be arbitrated, by an Interna,
tlonal tribunal, to -who dodatoqa all
mankind shall bow.' We. believe that
united womanhod holds the key and the
power, that we must learn togethtr hew
te Ubem, .
Liaklagt Wssms Tearether.
This world union which we ask yen
to enter, then, is the linking together of
all women and thlr eruanisst)ons In
every country on the simple basis of hu
manity. Ils practical benefit - to the
women In each country would be the ad
vanoement of solidarity and fraternity
among women ef all classes, and tha op
portunity whlrh It offers to-the Individ
uaJ. (no matter hew humble), to feel
herself a sk ful unit with an Immi-dlate
field for her activity and her deslra to
work In the cause of peace.
-'The women -of each country. will be
troe to employ . their branch of the
World union la a precis a : campaign
aa la compatible. wILh renditions existing
In their own land. - Thus programs of
quite dlveree natures can ba forwarded
by the World union aa long as these pro
S rams conform In general with the lines
uponjwhb-h it bss been otganlzed. There
is no subject which concerns women
ASItrh cannot lo benefited by such a
U h Ion. It la the. link between all opin
ions. all nationalities and. all women.
"We need you .'arid your support and
we leel aure. that ydw. our more favored
sJsUrs. Mvtnr In happier condition, will
"no more refuse ua your- aid than you
hava refused the pleas for help which a
mlerable world haa cried out to ou.
''Join ua In forming thla World union,
bawd upon womanly 'compaaalon. that
together we may U-ara how to manifest
It Jufctly In rational thought and act."
