whose efforts in behalf of rigid ad-
herence to the biblical myth of crea-
tion has been no small factor in re-
assuring the promulgators of evolu-
tVonary research that their only op-
position comes from a res3tricted group
of bigoted n;innyhammners.
"It is treason to the God Almighty
and a libel against the human race."~
So sayeth the omnipotent Dr. Straton
of the evidence of proof colle~ted in
the corridors of the American Museum
of Natural History, where it is on
display for all those who come. Argu-
ing that the directors of the Museum
are "poisoning the minds of school
children by false and bestial theories
of evolution," Dr. Straton. has serious-
ly asked, "Ought not the Bible to b~e
exhibited at the Museum as well as a
lot of musty old bones?"

Further he accuses the evolution-
itof attempting to convince the un.-
opinionated that nian and other ani-!
mals are not the result of a supreme ]
Godly influence. Also he ridicules
the fact that in five small cases the{
evolution of man is supposedly sub-
stantiated. Indeed, Dr. Straton, your
laughs' are well deserved, for one
whose breadth of vision is so nar-
row must find his amusement within
the walls which banish so much from
his intellect.
Evolutiotlists do not contest the'
validity of the teleological argument,
which adequately" explains the Iinflu-
ence of God in the development of
man. They do' not maintain that he
"camne up. in .soxme mysterious. way,
out of the slime through a series of
reptiles,. etc." They do. however at-
tempt to prove that he developed from
reptile to beast, and finally to man.
The absence of proof is not often suf-
ficient grounds for ridiculing an argu-
ment in the process of substantiation,
and if Dr. Straton -will be a *bit more
patient he shall find five hundred
cases instead of five, displaying the
evidences of evolution.

Very often criticism from the out-

an excerpt from afn editorial recentlyI
published in this state evidently basedI
upon the statement of some one who
does "know about it."
"A college student remarked re-
cently that there is considerable dif-
ference between the social attitude
of many students in the earlier por-
tion of their course, from that which l
prevails in their 'senior year,. a aj
freshman and a sophomnore, he said
the students all seem to feel the need
of a democratic spirit. They must
be good fellows with the crowdl, show
themselves generally affable, or they
will not form friendships.
"But when they become_ sensor,'
there is a tendency for social lines
to stiffen. Those who have acquired I
social prominence, or the position of
whose families gives them social posi-
tion, are often inclined to withdraw
from their former democratic atti--

to think that we are not trying to

consciously cultivate those "social1
lies" to such a, degree that, they' be-,

inevitable in any society. Proper and

Once upon at time there was a well-
to-do gentleman whose wife went to
the country. When she returned she
fouind her home~ in a 'state of disre-
pair that would have dcone credit to i
a small, cyclone. The kitchen, es-
pecially, wa- far fromn being in order-

unfortuinately for Hubby, his brave'
attempt to show he had boon a 'case-
ful houisewife while his wife was. away,.
'did not suwcceed.' In fact, it "f'el l fiat." J
Friend vwife was too old a hand at the
game to be fooled by a v aliently dis- 1
played knowledge of the scarcity of
And so it goes. Men talk lengthily
1 and knowingly of insignificant de-
tails and miss the main points alto-!
gether. Often the man who knowsJ
the most about cocoa, or who seems
to, will be utterly ignorant of the1
meat, bread, and potatoes of life. Hle.
will be' able to skim the subject suc-
cessfully, but he will never get-down
to the root of things. And the person
who really knows whereof he speaksf
can detect it.
Therefore, -when it is necessary to
work a bluff, it is advisable to delve
a little 'deeper into the kitchen than
the cocoa can!

struck a match and lighted his pipe.

Tears came to the woodcutter's eyes.

long breath and spoke, all vestige of
egotism gone out of his voice, and his
eyes pale and watery.
"The child shall not be car~ed Abra-

"Nor shall it be called Iiezekiah."
"No,' it shall not be called I-ezekiah."

"Yes, it shall be called Satan."
A wail burst from. the child. "I
hope," said the woodcutter fervently,
"that he will live up to his name."

"THE HOUR GLASS," William But-
ler -Yeats' impressive allegory, 'will
PPbn presented by the Presbyterian
Players this Sunday evening- in the
IPresbyterian Chits cli at 7 :13 o'clock.

William Isutier Yeats, as ycn know,
is the winner of this year's Nobel
Prize' for Literature, and_ in "The
Hour Glass.." unlike the usual run of
so-called' "religious drama," he has
composed a striking play that is truDly
moving and utterly devoid of any pro-
pagandist .tendencies.
The purpose of the present produc-I
tion is to bring back to the church
in a simple, but if possible, artistic
manner the best that the theater has
to offer. It is merely an attempt to
test the practicability of the axiom,
"The theater began in the church,
and should go back there." k
With this in mind, all the conven-
tional artifices or the stage will beI
eliminated: There will be no foot-'
lights, no curtain, and little more than
a bare platform flooded in a pool of
hard light. It is an effort, you can
see, to imitate in a "limited, very econ-
omical way a little of the technique
of "The Miracle.",
