Institutional Religion
And Democratic Sociey..
F ROM THE WORDS of that extra-
ordinary woman, Donna Isabella
de Palencia, speaking here Saturday on the con-
fused Spanish situation, emerged a problem-
which has been troubling the world for well
over a thousand years. That problem has not
been finally solved by many people, even though
its urgency becomes ever more piessing. It is
the problem of the relation of religion to human
progress, the relation of religion organized in the
church to the conduct and adjustment of polit-
ical institutions.
In the long history of the Catholic Church it is
unnecessary to point out its almost unfailing al-
legiance to authoritarian governments, from the
Holy Roman Empire to the reign of Louis XVI.

In modern times that same church has made
itself the ally of Czarism and Fascism, making
peace with such monsters as the old Russian and
the new Italian eagles. The Protestant Church
was born more or less in the dissatisfaction with
corrupt authority, and yet its genius has in pro-
portion to its growing power lent its support
mora and more to existing rather thap de-
veloping institutions. Consider the Church of
England. Consider many of the great Protestant
churches of America. In both has risen the
most violent opposition to extension of suffrage
and education, and to trade unionism. Safe it is
to say that organized religion has flourished best
under conditions of general ignorance and ex-
ploitation. We might almost correlate its suc-
cess with percentages of illiteracy.
That all this is true no one will deny. And it
seems to follow that there is in religious insti-
tutions something fundamentally antagonistic
to democratic evolution of society. What is it,
and might it be eliminated?
In the Catholic Church the anomaly appears,
to be partially one of structure. The Pope is held
to be the direct representative of God in natters
spiritual and moral-which may be extended in-
definitely. Beneath him is the spiritual hier-.
archy, in concept and practice authoritarian
throughout. Such a system is alien to the
theories of democracy. Democracy holds that
men are everywhere men, and that the only just
government must spring out of the majority of
men, rather than be dispensed by divine ordi-
nation. These two theories face each other, and
are irreconcilable.
It may be said if you will that the church
ma ken itsfr emmve from n olimef But twr

intentioned, since they may with honesty claim
toethemselves that they have therebyadded to
the glory of the church. It may not be said
absolutely that corruption is inevitable, but it
may be said that it is comparatively 'easily in-
troduced. Ecclesiastical hierarchy does not, as
does democracy, allow for the human equation.
In the Protestant churcr there is an oligarchy
the authoritarianism of which becomes increas-
ingly evident with the passing of time. The Ro-
tarian pillars of economic society extend to the
second story of conservative politics and form
the church board which supports the spire of
tht parson-who with the voice of the congre-
gation's wealthiest member echoing in his ears
puts the fear of God in those sheep who stray
from the fold of industrial democracy. His wild
bells ring out fearful warnings.
But it may be that no alteration of church
organization could change the antagonism of
church and religion to enlightenment. ThQ
religion has historically allied itself with con-
servative politics may indicate that man may
have to choose between religion, as an authority
coming from some imagined source without
himself, and a kind of humanism whose calculus
employs not spiritual abstractions but deals
alone with the human equation, making a world
fit the measure of man, not of a few men, but
of the universal democratic man. It is reason-
able to suppose, even desire, that organized au-
thoritarian religion will disappear in the religion
of general human truth.
If, however, the church is to remain, it must
take one of two courses, ,either withdraw com-
pletely from politics, or change itself into a
democratic institution in harmony with and
promoting advanced democratic ideals. With-
drawal of the church from politics must be re-
gional as well as national, that is, the church
must cease opposing trade unionism, as in the
North, East and Northeast, or the improvement
of the conditions of the sharecroppers in the
South. Observe Bishop Gallagher's statement
on this morning's front page. Never again will
society adjust itself to fit authoritarian religion.
The religious institution, if it hopes to preserve
itself at all, must swiftly adjust itself to fit
democratic society. Otherwise, it condemns it-
self to oblivion, and with it, all that it repre-
sents.

Against Dormitories
To the Editor:
Now that we have found a new "cure all" for
student problems-the dormitory-wouldn't it be
wise to consider a few of its disadvantages?
Everyone recognizes that dormitories cost
money. So much sd, in fact, that our legisla-
ture has not seen fit to appropriate funds for
that purpose. For the students they house, dor-
mitories provide a life of continual discomfort.
Amid the noise and the practical joking which
characterize the dormitory, studying is well-nigh
impossible.
The four years a student spends at college
should be his training period for life in our
modern world. Individual initiative, the prime
requisite of modern life, is certainly not en-
couraged by the method of molding the student
to the prescribed system of conduct which exists
in the dormitory. Thus, by restraining the
student, by refusing him the right to formulate
his own decisions, dormitories defeat the ulti-
mate purpose of the University--preparation for
life.
May I confess, at this point, that aside from its
reputation and scholastic standing, one of the,
principal reasons why I came to Michigan was
the very fact that entering students are not
forced to live in dormitories. A survey would
show that I am not alone in this respect.
I do not deny, of course, that providing rooms
for men students is an urgent problem facing

the University. The construction of dormitories
for whatever students might consent to live in'
them might solve that problem. However, a far
better solution, both financially, and socially, lies
in a plan that has successfully solved the housing
problem at many other colleges in this country-
constructive aid, by the University, toward the
establishment of student co-operative houses.
-John K. Mills, '40E.
THE SCREEN
AT THE MICHIGAN
"THREE MEN ON A HORSE"
THE PACE of this picture is as fast as that
of any race horse, and it is hilarious all the
way down the stretch. Warner Brothers have
kept as close to the stage production of Three
K n On a Hrse as is possible, and the results
at the box office should be comparable to the
lengthy run of the production on Broadway.
Erwin (pronounced as only a Brooklyner can)
writes verses for greeting cards. But he dopes
out the races to kill time while riding to his office
on the bus. One morning he quarrels with his
wife, takes a few drinks before going to work,
and ends up in a bar habituated by three race
track johnnies. They become convinced of his
second sense in picking the winners, take his
tips, and clean up. Erwin is too valuable for
them to lose, so by various methods they keep
him with, them. But Joan Blondell, as the wife
of one of the "boys" should take honors in enter-

BOB SANKE spent the greater part of Mon-I
day explaining away his battered face whichI
looks as if it might have been shipped by re-k
frigerator car direct from old Heidelberg. Ac-I
cording to Bob's story he was slashed across the
face while playing hockey, but he was so reticent
with details at some times and so ready with
them at others that somebody smelled a fish.
The sleuths betook themselves off on th
trail and late in the afternoon turned up with
the solution.
Herr Sanke was the lucky fellow named to
squire Joan Closterhouse to the Alpha Phi party
Friday night, and as is the custom of the North
Hill Street eating club girls, she also named one
Bill Griffiths to come along to keep things lively.
The evidence at hand indicates that Bob had
a couple of bees before the big occasion and
then betook himself out to the festivities. Step-
ping out of the cab with a rashness ill-advised in
consideration of a slight feeling of dizziness, Bob
suddenly found himself face to face with a very
hard and very rough portion of the pavement.
Comrades rushed to his aid and nulled him
up off his stomach. They took one look at his
face and then announced that Griffiths would
play first base for the rest of the dance. Sanke
was led off to the sewing machine and spent the
rest of the week end perfecting fabrications to
deceive the currious comments of one of the boys'
mothers who was visiting at the Phi Psi house.
BENEATH IT ALL: Bill Gunderson and Dale
McAffee returned from a hunting expedition
Saturday afternoon with three rabbits and a
poodle . . . Chubb's, undoubtedly the filthiest
hole in Ann Arbor, closed for good Sunday. It
was a grand old tradition but the cockroaches
were beginning to get the best of the cash cus-
tomers . . . Betty Sinclaire and a couple of co-
horts entered a downtown department store
Saturday and enquired whether they might
charge some clothes for a little child. "Just
make out the bill to Kappa Alpha Theta," they
told the clerk who sneezed violently. They
finally explained it was a Christmas present for
the maid's little girl . . . Three Men on a Horse
is one of the funniest pictures ever to be screened
in my estimation . . . The Kappa House is very
mad at Joe College who characterized the girls
as 'fat' . . . some gent whose sense of equilibrium
was not as great as his desire to 'Make a splash'
tossed 200 pennies into the tub sponsored by
Wyvern at the Soph Cabaret Friday ... a friend
of his climbed astride the huge horse in the up-
stairs lobby, and plucked forth the steed's tail
with which he disported himself for the rest of
the evening ...

ELSIE ROXBOROUGH, daughter of John Rox-
borough who is Joe Louis' pilot, is quite a
manager in her own right.. Elsie has charge of
the stage and all its responsibilities for the "Good
Old Summer Time" now in production at the
Laboratory theatre. Here are a few of her reac-
tions:
CARICATURE of a woman-stage manager
talking to herself back-stage on "The Good
Old Summertime" set: Well, they're going
through it, again for the nth time, it should be
perfection by the time Martin Flavin gets here,
if he comes at all . . . O.K. Places everybody!
Guess I'll have to hike downstairs and remind
James Doll that it's time he became Grandpa
Clark again and I wish he would catch up with
his Bible, keeps saying there were six loaves
of bread and seven fish when everyone should
know that there were four loaves and six fish,
or is that right? . .. Frank Wurtsmith seems to
have passed out on the Green-room floor. Wake
up, Frank! We need some lights for the night
scene. That's Frank for you, wide awake in
a minute! What? It's night already? There
they go with Fred Crandall and Hattie Bell Ross
united again and fighting! . .. Hattie Bell says
she'd love to be at peace with Fred and with
having been at odds with him successfully all
through "Merrily We Roll Along," "Button, But-

ton," and even "Othello."
Understand Charles Coburn, who made such
a rep for himself dramatically will have Fred's
part when the show opens on Broadway the 28th
... My gaul! If Kay Nelson hasn't knocked the
salt all over while he's supposed to be full of
good old corn liquor-and if he hasn't stopped
rehearsal long enough to pick it up and toss
some over his left shoulder! . . . At least they've
made a good woman out of Sally Pierce after
such parts as "Queen Elizabeth" et al . . . Bill
Iversen has some Swedish accent, I'd say! You'd
swear he was that guy Mundin or somethin' .. .
And here comes Grable tripping in as Grandma
Clark with Hope's bedroom slippers on em-
broidered by her own grandmater . . . Notice
Ralph Bell has a heart of gold in this show for a
change . . . With that leer on his face, seems like
all he needs, is a halo ... And there goes Tru-
man Smith looking for all the world like a small-
town station manager. Sometimes I wonder what
his colleagues in the Registrar's Office think
when they see him being a "perfect scream" on!
the stage...
Everybody's saying that Bill Rice, Sally's
blessed out-of-work "husband" is going to be-
come some sort of matinee idol . . . And just get
an eyeful of Oren Parker taking a squint at his
own set. Well he designed it . . . Funny how
that stripling's begun to chase me down the
diagonal and it is so peacefully quiet without the
Perkins family bawling about the depression ...
What? Oh, guess I dozed off. Yeh, I know the
show opens Wednesday . . Going through it
again? ... I think Valentine B. Windt must have
insomnia ... O.K. Places everybody-and where
in Hades is Jim Doll now!-Roxie.

the Christmas portion of Handel's
immortal oratorio was of a calibre
which invites special mention. Not-
withstanding several obvious defects
-of which the most outstanding was
a frequent lack of balance, blending,
and precision, especially where the
orchestra was concerned-the per-
formance was highly creditable to
all concerned. For the same all-stu-
dent group to have presented the
work in its practical entirety, as it
has been done in former years with
more experienced soloists and con-
ductor, would have probably been
too great a task; but from a purely
selfish standpoint we cannot help
wishing it had been so done. From
the tender tranquility of the Pastoral
Symphony to the glorious majesty of
the Hallelujah Chorus, the Messiah
fills a piace occupied by nothing else
in all musical literature, and the
chances for hearing its lesser known
portions are all too few.
The work of the student soloists
was exceptionally fine, and left little
to be desired in the way of beauty
of tone or satisfactory execution of
the elaborate Handelian vocal parts.
Especially were we pleased with Miss
Rogers' rich contralto tone and ex-
cellent control, which exhibit a re-
markable progress from the time we
first heard her sing, some two years
ago. All of the soloists at times
seemed to have trouble in making
themselves plainly heard, but as to
how much of this was due to their
own lack of power and how much to
overbalance on the part of the or-
chestra it was difficult to detect.
The most outstanding work, how-
ever, was done by the Choral Union.
Having had fewer numbers to learn
than in past years, that group sang
Iwith more assurance, greater exact-
ness, and a better quality of tone
than we have ever heard it sing be-
fore. Undoubtedly some part of the
praise for its work should go to Mr.
Taliaferro for his conducting. While
his command over the orchestra fre-
quently appeared insecure and un-
exacting, his handling of the chorus
left nothing to be desired. On' the
whole, the traditional Handelian in-
terpretation was well maintained,
through the phrasing and choice of
tempi, and it is this interpretation,
first of all, which has made the an-
nual Ann Arbor presentation of the
Messiah a notable one.
