QuotationI hope you will be saying some special prayers for a man named Grenville Clark up in New Hampshire. He has written a little book called A Plan for Peace which seems to me the best hope for the world that I have seen. It is a plan for revising the United Nations Charter in such a way that it might take effective steps for disarmament. Clarc is perfectiong the plan now, and then there is to be a big drive to get people interested in it so that there will be an extrapolitical movement toward getting it adopted.
