CARRYING ON.
The death of Edgar iekemeyer
in the glider crash lashr Saturday
afternoon has rudely awakened us
' flromi our dream that gliding is a
perfectly safe way to navigate the
.air. Many will now be inclined to
view gliding with suspicion and
1possibly to think that human life
is too precious to risk for the sport-
ing thrills and elementary flying
experience that; gliding offers. We
should not, however, allow tie sud-
denness and nearness of the shock
'caused by a studet's death to warp
our perspective. Gliding, despite
this most recent black eye, is now,
and as time passes will more and
more prove itself an invaluable ad-
junt to Ameica's aeronautical de-
velopment. As the long-sought
missing link between the student
and powered flying, it must not be
sacrificed to public ignorance of its
importance or public mistrust of its
essential safety.
It would be folly, however, to dis-

regard the lessons' to be learned
from Siekemeyer's death. The first
is that the internal discipline of
the Glider section must be
strengthened so that no member
will attempt maneuvers in the air
which he does not thoroughly and
exactly understand. The same
group must go to the flying field
each time with the same instruc-
tor so that no one's piloting ability
will be overestirmated before he is
given a ship to fly. The second les-
son to be learned is that primary
training gliders as built in this
country are not so inherently sta-
ble in the., air as their German
counterparts. Trheir stability has
been sacrificed for maneuverability
which is apt to prove dangerous in
the hands of beginners.
We believe that these lessons will
be sufficiently taken to heart by
the student members, of the Glider'
sectioni to make faculty supervision
of their activities unnecessary. .It
would be a mistake to sacrifice the
independence, self -reliance, and
initiative upon which they ha.ve
built up the most important and l
progressive glider club in the Unit-

DUES INDIA. NEED
CHRISTIANITY?
The arguments oftenest! used in
justification of missionai'ies' phi-
'lathrpicwork in India are fourl
in number. First to give India a
'religion, second to civilize, third to
reform the social evils, and lastly
to unite India for her independ-
ence. The above four reasons sound
well but let us examine thenm close-
ly.
India is a land of great religion.
Many centuries before the Chris-
tian Era, Hinduism spread over vir-
tually the whole of India, When
India has a religion mnuch older,
well founded and as good as the
western religion~, why does India
need a new religionl?
The second argumnlt is Chris-
tianity for the civilization of India.
When British first, entered India
as traders, they found a civilization
that was high. Thomas Munro, a
governor of Madras, in a statement
before the House of Comnlons, stat-
ed they possessed "a good system
of agriculture unrivaled manufac-
turing skill, schools establishedc in
every village, hospitality and cha r-
ity among each other-all signs
which denote a civilized people.
. , ." This statement shows India
progressed in the civilization in its
finest form without Christianity.
Then why does India need Chris-
tianitya now for civilization?
Christianity to reform the social
evils in India. Reforms were
made, soically and religiously by
the great teachers of the country
before -the British peeped into the
affairs of India. The great Em-
peror Asoka, who ruled from B. C.
272-232, organized a great digging?
of wells in India, and the planting
of trees for shade, and founded
and appointed officers for the su-
pervision of charitable works, If
