The question: What is your opinion
of the stand taken by Scopes in the
Tennessee Tri?
Where asked: Tappan Hall.
Answers: V. A. Altenburg, Superin-
tendent of Schools, Lawrence, Mich.,
"Scopes is doing exactly the right
thing. If these laws which make it.
unlawful to teach truth are enforced,.
our civilization will go back to the
dark ages."
John H. Blue, Southeastern High
School, Detroit: "Although believing
in the theory of evolution, I disap-
prove of Scopes teaching it in a com-
munity where it is restricted by stat-
ute. In so doing, Scopes acted in an
untrue manner as an agent to a pri -I
cipal. His approach should have been
in the form of an appeal to the people;
for the repeal of the evolutionary
statute, and then teach evolution."
Prof. W. H. Irian: "My opinion with
reference to the stand of Professor
Scopes is that he was teaching the
regularly adopted text-book in his
classes in about the same fashion in

which most of the high school teach-
ers of Biology teach that subject. He
probably had only a limited know-
ledge about the whole subject of evo-
lution and had no intention of becom-
ing a national figure through his
teaching. It is~my opinion that his
knowledge concerning evolution has
materially increased since the charges
of violating the Tennessee law werel
made against him. How he or any-
one can be expected to teach BiologyG
without presenting the theory of evo-
lution and the scientific evidence sup-1
porting it, puzzles me. It seems to
me that he had no other alternative
than presenting these matters."
Supt. H. R. Dumbrille of Bellaire:
"In my opinion, any legislation res-
tricting freedom of thought or teach-
ing theories as such, is a step back-
ward toward the dark ages'."
T. H. Hunt, School of Education:
"I believe it is a valuable test case.
It will decide for the nation at large
how far science can go in the face
of traditional opposition."

Organic Evolution
Discussed By Smith'
(Continued from Page One)
complex sutures, culminating in the
variable, highly complicated and beau-
tiful forms of the Mesozoic Ammon-
ites. In addition to the proof offer-
ed by this regular development in'
Geologic time is the study of the in-
dividual highly developed Ammonite.
By breaking off succeeding whorls
from the mature Ammonite shell, suc-
cessively simpler sutures may be un-
covered until the simple straight sut-
ure of the ancestral fres is uncov-
ered." In the words of Haecke, "the
Ontogeny (the development of the in-
dividual) repeats the Phylogeny (the
development of the group)."
The Evolution of the horse has been
repeated so often not only in Scien-
tific literature, but also in poetry and
song that bare mention will suffice
here. We should emphasize here,'
the progressive stages from the three
and four-toed Eohippus to the modern
horse, but that these states took place
however, that not only do we have
in regular sequence in Gelogical time.
Now,-the Evolution of man, and
as Huxley stated,-"The question of
all questions for mankind-the prob-
lem which underlies all others, and
is more deeply interesting than any
others-is the ascertainment of the
place which man occupies in nature
and of his relation to'the universe of
things.' Here lies the crux of the
wholI situation.
tlis believed not that man descend-
ed from a monkey nor even from an
ape, but that man and the Cro-Mag-
non man occupy the same twig on a
branch and that other twigs o that
same branch are occupied by the
earlier species of man as well as by
the anthropoid apes. A graphic illus-
tration of the above is on exhibit in
the Geology' Museum in the Natural
Science building
Various stages in this story may be
illustrated by the increased brain ca-
pacity in the development of man,
the duplication in position and func-
tion of every bone in Gorilla and Man,
the Identical direction of trend of hair
in both groups, etc. Possibly even
more telling evidences of the connec-
tion of man to the lower animals may
be shown in his embryonic stage. Dur-
ing the first three months of his de-
velopment in the womb, man has pass-
ed progressivly through stages of Pro-
tozoa, Coelenterate, Worm, Fish, Am-
phibian, Reptile and Mammal. Even
after birth, the babe shows certain
ape relationship by his pose of feet,
power of grip and in all some 180
other characteristics. Thus, man iden-
tical in his origin, stages of formation
and nutrition with the animals which
lie mmediately below him in the scale,,
is the cap-stone of the story, up to the
present,, of Organic Evolution. And
again in the words of Huxley, "Our
reverence for the nobility of manhood
will not be lessened b the knowledge
that Man Is, in substance and in struc-
+,i. n; vits .s.bus,,, r.' ,bea

ment of intelligence and rational
speech, whereby, in the secular period
of his existence, he has slowly accum-
ulated and organized the experience
which is almost wholly lost with the
cessation of every individual life in
other animals; so that now, he stands
raised upon it as on a mountain top,
far above ;the level of his humble fel-
lows, and transfigured from his gross-
er nature by reflecting, here and there,
