The teachers of the United States of America assembled in the National Educational Association, at Los Angeles, California, July 8, 1907, viewing with pleasure and satisfaction the conditions which have brought about the Second Hague Conference, adopt the following minute as suggesting the principles to which they adhere:
We believe that the forces of this world should be organized and operated in the interests of peace and not of war; we believe that the material, commercial, and social interests of the people of the United States and of the whole world demand that the energies of the governments and of the people be devoted to the constructive and helpful pursuits of peace and that the people be relieved of the burdens of providing at enormous expense the armaments suggested by the competitive desire for supremacy in war; we further believe that the fear of war and the possibility of war would alike decline if the governments were to rely more upon the sentiment of the people and less upon the strength of their armies and navies. We recommend the following resolutions:
1. We indorse and commend the sentiments expressed in the annual address by the President of this Association.
2. We urge upon our representatives at the Second Hague Conference to use their influence to widen the scope and increase the power of the Hague Tribunal.
3. While disclaiming any desire to suggest a program or to urge specific action, we do urge our representatives to secure the most favorable action possible upon international arbitration, the limitation of armaments, the protection of private property at sea, and the investigation of international disputes by an impartial commission before the declaration
4. We recommend to the teachers that the work of the Hague Conference and of the Peace Associations be studied carefully and the results given proper consideration in the work of instruction.
On motion the declaration was referred to the Committee on Resolutions to be reported back to the Association with recommendation at the closing meeting of the Convention. An address on "Education and Democracy" was given by President A. B. Storms, of Iowa State College, Ames, Iowa.
The following Committee on Resolutions was appointed by President Schaeffer:
COMMITTEE ON RESOLUTIONS
Charles C. Van Liew, Chairman, president of State Normal School, Chico, Cal.
S. A. Underwood, principal of Westport High School, Kansas City, Mo.
S. Belle Chamberlain, state superintendent of public instruction, Boise, Idaho.
