Description ENDS AND MEANS IN CONFLICT 47 agreements between World Wars I and II. The other half of his adult life he devoted to a remarkable ministry of peace. For decades he preached against war, a peacetime draft, military alliances, the arms race and particularly the nuclear arms race. With courage and eloquence, he condemned our use of nuclear bombs at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. He saw our nation as a natural and neutral participant in the peaceful resolution of international disputes. President Spencer W. Kimball was deeply influenced by President Clark's teaching through many years of service together.

Most important of all are four women, three representing a tradition known but then unfamiliar to me, sisters in religious orders, two of them Franciscans. Across the nation wherever I spoke on the nuclear arms race, I found the sisters of the Roman Catholic Church usually better informed, and always better organized, than the local clergy. I came to love them dearly and respect them enormously. For sixteen years, headquartered in Rome, Sister Rosemary Lynch was chief troubleshooter (my job description, not her official title) for female Franciscans world-wide. We met in Santa Fe early in the MX controversy. By the peacefulness of her life she demonstrated a bet-
