ANOTHER CAMERON BELIEVES
WORK OF AUTHOR APTLY TERM-
ED "ASCENT," NOT' "DESCENT"
Editor, The Michigan Daily
I read H. A. Cameron's recent con-
tribution on Darwinism with consid-
erable appreciation of its naivete. His
statements, however, indicate an ab-
solute unfamiliarity with the charact-
er of this doctrine's author. Mr. Bry-
an said, or at least implied, that Dar-
win was an atheist and his doctrine
atheism. H. A. C. agrees with him.
Let them both read the following sen-
tenc9
Impiety Hard to Apply Here
"There is grandeur in this view of
life, with its several powers, having
been originally breathed by the Creat-
or into a few forms or into one; and
that, whilst this planet has gone cycl-
ing on according to the fixed law of
gravity, from so simple a beginning
endless forms most beautiful and most
wonderful have been, and are being
evolved." These are the closing lines
of the "Origin of Species." Are they
the thoughts of an atheist? Could im-
piety be read into such words?
If H. A. C will not apply evolution-
ary principles to physical things, he
cannot logicallytdo so to matters mor-
al and spiritual. I would like to re-
mind him that all Camerons-I am a
Locheil myself-claim a common or-
igin, and they can boast of many illus-
trious members of their clan. But I
have ascertained that we can trace
our ancestors further back, through a
long line of banaits, cutthroats, sheep-
stealers and pirates, to one Angus
Cameron, a half-barbarian Celtic ad-
venturer. This Angus, sailing from
the north of Ireland, landed on the
coast' of Caledonia with a band of fol-
lowers, and took possession of the sec-
tion now occupied by our clan, pil-
laging the land, and putting to the
sword or enslaving its Pictish defend-
ers. Further back, history is silent
concerning the Cameron-perhaps his
deeds were too dark to relate-and
the trail which leads to the ape pass-
es. from my ken.
"Poe's World or Our Own?"
No, brother Cameron, I'm afraid you
have bet on the wrong horse. Rather
than "The Descent of Man," that great

work of a great man might more aptly
have been entitled, "The Ascent of
Man." It is infinitely easier to place
your trust in an Omnipotent Being, if
you feel that through his marvellous,
unchanging laws you are ascending-
up from the ape if you will, up from
the pirate and the cutthroat whether
you will or no--the body, the mind
and the spirit going ever upward--
than if you believe in the chaotic,
meaningless world that Poe describes:
"With its phantom chased for ever-
more,
By a crowd that seize it npt,
Through a circle ever returning in
To the Self-same spot."
