where they are unable to offer any
exp.anation of the genesis of species.
erofessor Bateson said le couia nu,'

promised immediate soiuuon .
Origin is Problem
"We cannot say how tae differenti-!
ation of species came about. Vari-
ations of many kinds, often consiclef- I
able, we daily witness, but no origin
of species. The production of an in-
dubitably sterile hybrid (offspring of
Lhe union of two species) from com-
pletely fertile parents which have;
arisen from a single common origin
is the event for which we wait. Until;
this event is witnessed our knowledge
of evolution is incomplete in a vital
"From time to time a record of
such an observation is published, but
none has yet survived criticism. Mean-
while, though our faith in evolution
stands unshaken, we have no accept-
able account of the origin of species.
"The difficulties which weigh uponj
the professional biologist need not
trouble the layman. Our doubts are
not as to the reality or truth of evo-
lution, but as to the origin of species,
a technical, almost domestic problem.
Any day that mystery may be solved.
' he discoveries of the past 25 years
'ave enabled us, for the first time,
to discuss those questions intelligently
and on a basis of fact. That syn-
hesis will show on an analysis, we
Jo not and cannot doubt."
Church Gives Up Fight
Professor Bateson saidtthat there
w~as no longer a conflict between
science and religion on the question
As an illustration, after delivering
' speech at Toronto, Canada, before
he American Association for the Ad-
,ancement of Science, Professor Bate-
ion received several letters from
,lerzymen of the Queen city compli-
menting him on his stand "that man
is not a product of evolution."
Professor Bateson will continue a
series of lectures at various American
universities for the next two weeks.
after which he will return to England.
Of Pro bationers
Probationers who have struzeled

Iaseball or hockey, whether Irvin
Cobb was an edible, a writer, or a

General information was tested in
