Senate Gives
Clear Road To
Increase Bill
Washington, Jan. 23.-(By A. P.)-
The postal- pay and rate increase bill
awas given a clear road in the Senate
today when a point of order against
all of the proposed rate advances was
defeated 60 to 29, although consider-
able debate and some changes in these
provisions are in prospect.
Further consideration of the meas-
ure went over after the vote which
came late today, as there is a likeli-
hood also that Senator Moses, Repub-
lican, New Hampshire, in charge of
the bill, will permit it to be laid aside
tomorrow for the War department
appropriation measure.
Eleven Democrats and one Farmer-
Labor, Johnson, of Minnesota, joined
the Republicans in defeating the point
of order against the rate increase sec-
tion, which if sustained would have
caused a delay until the House which1

Dr Lauro De Bosis, Prominent Italiani
Scholar Will Deliver Lecture
Monday Afternoon
Dr. Lauro De Bosis, Italian scholar
of the Royal University of Rome, will
deliver a university lecture on "Ben-
ito Mussolini and His Spiritual Ances-
try," at 4:15 o'clock on Monday, in the
Natural Science auditorium.
Dr. De Bosis is one of the most
prominent of the younger generation
of Italians, according to authorities. I
He is a graduate of the Classical
school In Rome, is a lecturer in the
Classical department of the Univer-
sity of Rome, and one of the leading
Greek and Latin scholars of the youn- I
ger generation. He founded and dir- j
ected 'for two years the classical the-
ten on the Palatine, and has to his
credit, among other things, an admir-
able Italian version of Hamlet. He is ;
the son of the poet, Adolfo De Bosis, {
and is himself a poet of some note.
Dr. De Bosis is a disciple of Croce]
in the philosophical field and has been1
actively interested in educational re-
form. Outside the cultural field he has
been for several years interested in l
the social and political problems of
Italy, and has spoken extensively on
these subjects in England and Italy.'
At present he is making a lecture
tour of America. Dr. De Bosis has
been secured for the purpose of obta-
ining first-hand information on the
present Italian situation. The lecture
will be illustrated with two reels of
moving pictures.

Assails Pettiness of Controversies
In Regard To Theological
Form Of Faith
"Not its theological form but its re-
produceable experiences is what mat-
ters in religion." Thus Dr. Harry
Emerson Fosdick who lectured on,
"The Need of Modern Leadership in
Church," speaking last night in Hill
auditorium, struck at the basis of the
pettiness of the controversies which
have so disturbed various sects of
the Presbyterian church.
Defining reproduceable experiences
in the light of knowing God as a
transforming power in man, Dr. Fos-
dick further stated that "The clothes,
habitations, and mental attitudes have
changed but the reproduceable experi-
ences have remained the same. The
glory of the Bible is not in the change-
able mental frameworlis, not the
transient forms of thought but the
abiding experiences."
"They say that we liberals are try-
ing to destroy something. In reality
we are teaching abiding truths and
convictions to this modern genera-
tion in terms that they can under-
stand. Nine-tenths of the things that
bring about our controversies are not
reproduceable experiences. Thank
heavens the swallowing of Jonah by
the Whale wasn't a reproduceable ex-
As stated by Dr. Fosdick, two prob-
lems necessitate the need of modern
leadership in the Church. First, there
is the problem of 'the nature of the
religion that you are going to have,
and secondly, the intellectual difficul-
ties that must be faced. "We face
a problem because religion can be
either good or bad. Religion puts
behind man that powerful motive, the
consciousness of doing the eternal
will. How broadd a e and
how it tears othersAun .
"Real education and real religion
are the two greatest needs of the re-
public today. Two factors which ex-
ert their influence from the inside out,
not the outside in." Stressing the
importance of inner relationship to
religion, Dr. Fosdick referred to the
business of religion as "approaching
life from within. We need a modern
religious leadership because the only
salvation for life is from the soul
"We have gone as far as possible in
approaching the human problem from
the outside in. To govern from the
inside out, is the problem facing us.
We need leadership from the inside
out, from the soul."
