Present Civilization
"Our present philosophy of na
tidnalism and militarism, with mr
fighting or preparing to figh
everywhere, is certainly more pa-
ga than Christian," declared Kir-
by Page in a convocation speech o
' e~sonal Religion in a Socia
W orld" Sunday morning in Hill au-
ditorium. "When the Kingdom of
God comes, it will not resemble ou
Ijktsent civilization at all," he con-
tinned.
"There are three ways of evaluat-
ing an institution," Page went or
to say. "First by comparing it with2
the past, second by comparing i
with conditions elsewhere at the
present, 'and third by testing it in
relation to an ideal. Our American
society is undoubtedly superior t
that of several centuries ago, it
may be better than that of othe
peoples, but if we test it by com-
parison-with an ideal, our society
leaves much to be desired."
Enumerated Religions Functions
"Page enumerated several fun-
tions: of a personal religion. The
first, hie said, is "to shatter com-
placency, and to make people dis-
satisfied with low aims and ideas.
This age, above all, is self sat-
isfied and is blissfully uncon-
scious of the problems that con-
front it."
"The second function of religion
is to prevent cynicism. It may seem
paradoxical, but this age is both
cynical and complacent. Cynicism
is the foremost note in our litera-
ture and drama'
"When we see the depths to
which man can and does descend,
it is easy to sneer, but we should
take pains to prevent that atti-
tude." The last function of religion,
Page said, is to furnish the dyna-
mic energy demanded by this day
and'age.
.Association Ends Conference
The'.convocation, which was the
high point in the state conference
sponsored by the Student Christian
association, was opened by a hymn,
"0l 'Worg1l'ip the King," with Dalies
Fraxtz at-the organ. The prayer
wa&offec4,by ,,< ster .Bennett,
'29. He .was followed by George
Alder, 'Grad, who sang "Reces-
sional." Another hymn, "Where
Cross the Crowded Ways of Life"
preceded Page's address.
The convention closed on Sunday
afternoon with a final address to
the 150 =delegates by Page. Twelve
Michigan colleges were represented
at the; convention which held its
meetings, at Lane hall.
AEROLOGIST 'FAILS
TO RAHPLANE
With the announcement of the
talk this afternoon to be given by
'parker Cramer, Rockford flier, is
the reception of a radogram from
William Carlson,; assistant aero-
logist at Mt. Evans, the permanent
station in Greenland of the Uni-
versity Greenland expeditions,
that he has been, forced to turn
back with two Eskimos from an
attempt to reach the damaged
"Greater Rockford," the plane of
'the Rockford fliers, which was
abandoned on the ice.
Carlson reports that the ice of
the fjord near the station is too
thin to effect a safe crossing. A
subsequent investigation of the ice
all along the fjord by one of the
aEskimos showed that the ice was
atoo thin' the whole length of the
fjord.
