I hesitate to go on record with a statement of my beliefs, less such a statement become a code. The moment one subscribes to a code, it is likely to be no longer adequate in the light of changing conditions. Many of my beliefs naturally had their beginning in childhood. These early beliefs have been modified by influences of the world in which I have lived, a world quite different from the world of my parents. One becomes worthy of his childhood heritage only as he keeps it up to date. There are, however, many basic aspects of these early beliefs which are more enduring. These are the more important foundation stones of my present beliefs.
