Michigan encourter of the following

LEEDS, Eng.-More than half a 'cen-
tury has not abated the fury of the
tempest which Charles Darwin raised
in 1871, when he published "The Des-
cent of Man," to prove the theory
that "Mr. Chimpanzee is at the root
of man's family tree."
Today all England has divided into
two camps, raised up its fortifications
of arguments and brought all its big
guns of accusation and machine guns
of ridicule to hear in the struggle de-
clared by the British Science associa-
tion convention here.
The center of the world's interest in
evolution has shifted from a musty
courtroom in Tennessee to a large as-
sembly hall in Leeds.
Church and Science have again
ranged themselves on opposite sides.
England's famous bishops are liter-
!ally cudgelling the heads of scientists
with mitres and staffs, and the scient--
ists are replying with thunder and
poison gas.
Sir Arthur Keith, President of the
British Science associatign, one of the
most noted scientific organizations in
the world, started the whole thing
when he opened the convention by
supporting Darwin's view that man
has evolved from an anthropoid ape.
Dr. G. P. Bidder, the eminent zoo-
logist, supported him by saying that
"we owe our appreciation of dancing,

poetry and music, our sense of rhythm,
to actions that we made when we
were only tiny blobs of jelly, millions
of years ago."
Sir Arthur directly attacked the
church in saying: "Nothing can stand
still. If the church stands still she will
die. The issue is between Universal
Science and the Church."
Dr. Burroughs, the Bishop of Ripon,
a prelate of the Church of England,
rallied at once to a counter attack. He
pleaded for a scientific holiday and
the closing of every laboratory for teAi
years in order that a bewildered world
might sift and assimilate 'the maze of1
revolutionary knowledge,"
"Iuman nature," said the Bisbo ,
"is not yet fitted to be, entrusted safely
with' the enormous powers which
science is putting within its reach." l
A host of scientists returned to the
offensive with statements in favor ofl
evolution. Sir Daniel Hall, Professor
J. L. Myers and the Duchess of Atholl1
replied with more or less ridicule.

PROFESSOR READS
OLD INSCRIPTIONS
(By Associated Press.)
LUND, Sweden.--The ancient run-
ic script of the Vikings, chipped in
tombstones, recittld obituary facts and
was believed to possess a magic force
for protection of the graves, Prof.
Sigurd, of the University of Lund has
concluded.
Studying inscriptions on stone
slabs dating back to the third century,
Dr. Agrell has decided that tlt ruic
letters, like the Roman, had a certain
numerical value. The first letter, he
says, was number two, and the last
number was both one and 24, just as
an ace is counted one or 13 in cards.
Is studies are rj;arded as furfish-
ing a solid basis for reconstructihn of
the primitive Swedish langut7ge.
