Discussion of ideals and footnotes
in the Bible in relation to interpre-
tations was one of the subjects treat-
ed at the Y. W. C. A. and S. C. A. con-
ference held in Detroit recently, ac-
cording to a report given by Cynthia
Smith, 26, chairman of the confer-
ence committee of the University Y.
W. C. A.
Dr. Bruce Curry of the Union Theo-
logical seminar in New York was the
speaker at all the meetings of the
conference and discussed several
points of importance in regard to in-
terpretations. "As time has gone on,"
waid Dr. Curry, "different interpre-
tations have been mnade in regard to
what was meant .by certain passages
in the Bible. If something seemed
particularly hard to live up to, foot-
notes were put in, and as we read
the Bible today we have no way of
telling the original ideal from the
footnotes. The ideal as originally
stated was inspired, and the future
generations trying to interpret it u
inspired do notncatchfthe full sig-
nificance of it."
Dr. Curry went on further to ex-,
plain why the footnotes get away from
the real ideals. "There are chang-
ing conditions," he said, "and the
difficulty of language and translation
has caused confusion in explainingI
the meanings. There are words in
one language which have a particular
meaning, and in translation this is
lost. Persons naturally choose the
footnotes, because they are easier to
live up to, easier for human under-
standing, and are conformative to the
S asses.
"The time is coming when there
will be a great reformation in the
church, and this will be even greater
than the Reformation because teat
left untouched the substratum of me-
dieval thought," said Dr. Curry. lie
then went on to explain what it meant
to be a radical. "It means one who
goes back to the root of things. In
one who is a radical, human need he-
comes the criterion of action and self
is disregarded."
"Man if little in bulk but large it
significance,' said Dr. Curry. "The
fact that so many persons are becom-
ing students of the Bible today is
proof of the fact that they are inter-I
ested in the matter of getting to the
root of things," said Dr. Curry.
