Religion Is Theme
Of Evening Service
"Religion Through the Ages" was
the theme of the program of the
Unitarians Sunday evening Devotional
Service which was held Sunday eve-
ning at the Unitarian Church. Various
phases of religion beginning with the
primitive, continuing through the tra-
ditional, and concluding with the
modern were interpreted through
poetry and dance, and illustrated by
the Dance Club of the University.
The attitude of fear was. used to
typify the primitive phase, and the 1
idea of praise, supplication, and de-
votion ,indicated the personification
of God in traditional religion. The(
modern attitude toward religion with
God regarded as synonymous with 1
the higher powers of many was shown
in a triumphant, poetic mood. Mr.
Marley spoke on the various phases.
