Excerpt from Proceedings of the National Conference on Labor Problems Under War Conditions: Under the Joint Auspices of the Society of Industrial Engineers and the Western Efficiency Society, Held at Hotel La Salle, Chicago, March 27, 28, 29, 1918

Mr. F. A. Carlisle, President Western Efficiency Society, Chairman.

The meeting was called to order at two o'clock.

The Chairman: As is customary with the meetings of the Western Efficiency Society, we will first join in singing the Star Spangled Banner, after which the Rev. Alfred F. Waldo, of Riverside, will deliver the invocation.

The assembly joined in singing the Star Spangled Banner, after which the following prayer was offered by Rev. Alfred F. Waldo:

"Let us pray. This, our Heavenly Father, is Holy Week, and yet we know that no good work is too secular to be done in this week, and we rejoice and find encouragement and are grateful to Thee for the line intelligence and the splendid enthusiasm with which the minds of these men and women set themselves to work for the solution of the problems of humanity. We perceive in the coincidence between the Holy Weeks, the Holy Week of old when Jesus Christ laid down his life for the redemption of the world on the cross of Calvary and this week when our brave men and boys in the spirit of the same Christ are laying down their lives freely on that western front, we perceive in this a coincidence which is suggestive and stimulating.

"We realize that we are living not only in a time but in a week and possibly on a day than which no other day aside from the one upon which Christ died has been more fateful in human history, more freighted, perhaps, with destiny for the future interests of mankind. And we pray that whereas that one of old who betrayed Christ did have the good sense afterwards to go out and hang himself, this traitor by which civilization is betrayed today, instead of terminating his own meaningless and woeful existence utilizes his energies for the murder of others; for him we pray to God that his erroneous and wicked plots may be confuted, and that Thou wilt send a divine power into the minds of the rulers of all of our nations that are associated for the vanquishment of autocracy and evil, into tho minds of our rulers, our generals, our officers, Thou Lord send wisdom that they may plan boldly and wisely and effectively.

"And we pray for the men who fight that through faith in Thee they may become conscious of a physical and moral and spiritual strength which is not their own and yet which becomes their own because they receive it and utilize it.
