Higher Culture

Ames Contends
Philosophy Professor Says
Civilization, By Faith,
Seeks Sources Of Life
Despite the widespread industrial-
ization of present existence, civiliza-
tion still seeks through religion to
find the sources and conditions of
life, Prof. Edward Scribner Ames of
the philosophy department at the
University of Chicagodeclared yester-
day before 350 persons.
"Religion," Professor Ames main-
tained, "moves in cycles with culture.
There is no such combination as a
high religion and a low culture,"
"Just as the American Indian con-
sidered maize sacred and originated
ceremonies about it, so does every civ-
ilization build ceremonies about its
important objects. The most human
approach to religion," Professor Ames
maintained, "is through these cere-

NEW YORK, Dec. 2.--UP)-In an

Mayor Fiorello H. La Guardia of New

that he has larger-perhaps national

that La Guardia was a Presidential
