Convocation Speaker Deplores
Industrial Efficiency
of Modern Age.
Present Deification of Power
Seen as Principle Cause
of Growing unrest.
Religious and educational insti-
tutions should have courage to
teach a way o'f living, to stimulate
growth intellectually and morally
so men are not forced to exist like
mere machines, Rabbi Leo M.
Franklin, of the Temple Beth-El,
Detroit, told an undergraduate
audience Sunday night in Hill au-
ditorium at a convocation spon-
sored by the Student Christian as-
sociation through the courtesy of
Wesleyan Guild foundation.
A philosophy of might, incor-
porating the deification of effi-
ciency and the subjection of the in-
dividual, is ruling the nation today,
the Detroit rabbi stated. To over-s

the school must teach the reality
of ideas and instill an inspiration
to escape the humdrum existencej
of the present day.

handed operative methods.
"The effect, of this change has,
been to break down traditions, un-
.til it is awe-inspiring how futile
and flimsy are the things on which
we pride ourselves. We have even'
,obbed the heavens of their myst- #
"The modern methods of manu-
facturing are beneficial in that
they take advantage of all' resovr-
ces and obtain the greatest return
on labor, but they have builded a
world of blood and tears. The hu-
