Detroit Minister Believes Youth
Must Settle Conflict of
Science and Religion.
Indifference Toward Church Is
Laid to Multitudinous Body
of Truth Facers.
Youth of today is more "lost"
than the youth of any previous.
generation and therefore needs
more than ever before a personal
*relation with God, the Rev. Dr. Al-
vin E. Magary, pastor of the Wood-
waid Avenue Presbyterian church
of Detroit, told an audience of stu-
dents and townspeople Sunday aft-
ernoon in the Lydia Mendelssohn
theatre, at the third of the exper-
imental devotional services, con-
ducted by the Student Christian as-
There is a distinct conflict be-
tween science and religion, and the'
youth of today must arrive at a
competent conclusion concerning
his personal dedication of God to
solve the problems of life, the De-
troit minister stated. He laid spe-
cial emphasis on his belief that,
there was a conflict between reli-
gion and science.
Answers Questions.
Following his address the Rev.
Dr. Magary answered several ques-
tions placed by persons present. In
repi adng to one of the questions he
stated that the indifference of mod-
ern youth toward the church was
due to the multitudinous body of
truth that is today 'facing it. The
younger generation is bearing the
greatest pait of the strain of a
tremendous intellectual revolution,
he said.
'There is no divine discontent,
what is divine is purposed, while
discontent paralyzes man for thel
time being," he said in answer to
the request for the analysis of di-
vine discontent.9
In explaining his religious be-
liefs for another query the Detroit
minister stated that he "bases, his'
faith in religion upon the experi-
ence of the human race, during its
growth on the world.
Explains Hostile Feeling.
An explanation for the hostile
feeling commonly held against the
members of his profesison was giv-
en first in the Rev. Dr. Magary''s
address. The fact that clergymeir
come the farthest of any profession
from attaining their objectives, has
lead to a disrespect of the minis-
try, he declared.
