"Jesus took an ordinary life, and
laid it against the human verities,i
and the face of God shone
through," the New York pastor
stated. "For man to acquire a ma-'
ture religion, he must take the

in the Bible, and combine them

"It is interesting to note," re-
marked Prof. Rene Talamon, direc-
tor of the activities of the Cercle
Francais, "that this is the eighth
time the Cercle has produced a
play by Moliere."
In 1907, the first year of the Cer-
cle's existence, Moliere's "Le Bour-
geois Gentilhomme" was presented.
Since then, the Cercle Francais has
produced "L'Avare," "La Malade
Imaginaire," "Les Fourberies de
Scapin," "Le Bourgeois Gentil-
homme," and "Le Medecin Malgre
Lui," all from the prolific pen 'of
the French dramatist. This is the
second time that "Les Precieuses
Ridicules" has been played by the
French group. It was given its first
performance in 1911.

"A mature religion put us in com-
mand of life. Too many people
live in a world of science, and ma-"
terialism; too few can properly
combine it with the world of ideals.
Those values called idea'ls some-
how seem to be guaranteed by a
power beyond, but most of us live
in only one world, and we need a
mature religion to take advantage
of both. One cannot afford to take
a one sided view of life.
"We have lost control of religion,
to- a considerable extent, because we
have been forced to accept it liter-
ally. The. authors of the book of
Genesis did not mean it to be either
a science or a religion. They only
meant to ascribe the creation of the
world to their God.
"Considering the world today, we
have a greater knowledge of the
.universe than anything previous
people, and we have a true know-
ledge of the character of Jesus. By
combining these two we can de-
velop a mature" religion. We may
reach the same conclusion as our
forefathers, but we will have reach-
ed it gloriously.
"In considering the world we
should not ask: Is there a power
that rules it?, but we should ask,
What-kind, of a power rules it? A
inature religion can answer. It can
not do so by taking a literal mean-
ing of things and attempting to un-'
derwrite them with science.
"There is something in life that
is suggestive of purpose. Some peo-
ple believe that we cannot check up
on intuition, but I wonder is there f
anything more sure than charac-
ter. If we look into history, the
most challenging figure is Jesus. He
took the qualities of life: love,
friendship, sympathy,and the like,j
and dared to live by them. He ab-
solutely staked his life on these ver-
ities, and if man would achieve aI
mature religion, if he would know
the purpose of life, he must put
trust in these human verities."

Addressing a meeting of the
School of Education faculty yester-
day at luncheon in the Union,
Prof. Edgar G. Johnstone of the
University High school presented a
report of the success of the grad-
uates of this institution in their
first year of college work.
Professor Johnstone pointed out
that the number of A's earned by
graduates of this school in the


last three years is approximately
50 per cent the number earned by
graduates of all other high schools.
He further showed that the number
{ of unsatisfactory marks was lower
in this group than in the ordinary
run of college freshmen.
Commenting on this report, Dean
Edmonson of the School of Educa-
tion said, "We have every reason
to be proud of this record, especial-
ly in consideration of the fact that
the school is a comparatively new
one, and we may well be gratified
at the record of its graduates."
