    Titles read: "THE CHURCH AND SOCIAL PROBLEMS - EXCLUSIVE PICTURES".

    London.

    At the Royal Albert Hall, we see the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr William Temple, addressing the crowd.

    He talks of air, light, land and water, saying if it were possible to establish property rights in the air, somebody would have done it before now, and then he would demand that we should pay him if we wanted to breath his air. Dr Temple says this has been done with land, and speaks of the claims made by owners of land and water, as compared with the interests of the public, who need that land and water for the ordinary purposes of human life.

    Sir Stafford Cripps then takes the stand and makes a speech about God not intending this world to be a vale of suffering and tears in preparation for the joys of a life to come. He says it is God's purpose that we should work out our own salvation in this world of His creation, and so accomplish our and His happiness.
