THE SCHOOL OF RELIGION.
Inherent in the youth of today is the same savage lust for
destruction which existed in the days of the Carthaginiansj
and Babylonians. The veneer of civilization is easily tarnish
ed, especially when the veneer is merely a thin coat of school
ed Culture, a vocabulary redundant with scientific terms, and
a moralitV destitute of a code of Christian ethics. To be a
person of real culture—the ideal college man or woman—one
must understand those elements considered essential in genu
ine civilization; consideration for the rights of others, fair
play, frankness,, mercy and an unhvpocrital love of humanity.
A college is not complete without a reli'gious faculty. Nei
ther is a liberal education complete without religious instruc
tion. Under the direction of a student committee, a. school of
religion is being fostered by the University V. M. C. A- This
committee, cognizant of the position of the state in regards to
the teaching of religious ethical education. This course, which
is to be given twice a week at the Y hut, will consist of a series
of lectures and instructions and text work which refer to no
particular religion, Moslem, Christian, Buddist or other, which
does not imply the acceptance of the doctrines of any sect or
church, ancient or modern.
There j\re a syore of ethical problems of immediate inter
est to college men and women: Does the end ever justify the
means? Has an individual the right to starve himself? What
is meant by the freedom of speech ? Has the individual the
right to make intoxicating drinks? What is the definition of
success? What is meant by the ethics of spiritualism and the
ouija board? What is a lie? Are lies ever justifiable? Is
profiteering ethically permissible? What are the rights of a
citizen, versus the state? Is war ever justifiable? These
questions and others covered by (Tiristian ethics will be dis
cussed 'by Rev. Edwin V. O’Hara, LL.I)., author of the Oregon
Minimum Wage Law, for five years chairman of the Indus
trial Welfare Committee of the state, and a noted writer on
social justice. During the winter term Father O’Hara’s
course in Christian ethics will he supplemented until a course
given by Rabbi Jonah B. Wise, identified with charitable and
social work throughout the Cnited States, and a course by Rev.
Brilce J. (I if fen dealing with the masterpieces of religious
No science is so full of human interest as ethics because it
is essentially human. Religions ethics is a science of para
mount interest to college students who desire to learn a rea
sonable basis for human eondiu
The so-called School of
Religion of the University promises to furnish the education
al essentials which maketh a full man. The studies will be
conducted without offense to anv sect.
The School of Religion will have no official connection
with the University, and therefore credits will not he given for
the work, but the ethical training obtained from such instruc
tion will he valued more than college credits in later years In
The Y. M. (‘. A. must be given credit for staging the first
real peppy get-together meet of the year last night. The an
nual freshman parade as staged by the sophomores could not
he cal It'd a howling success. Such “pep talks’ as were given
by “Shy”, “Bill”, and “Bart” at the mix wore exactly wlrat
was needed to give “Oregon Spirit” a successful send-off for
The program of rooting practices and rallies outlined for the
coming year by (Main* Keeney, varsity yell leader, are admir
able, and every student, new and old, should bend every effort
towards supporting such a program. Oregon’s successes in the
past have largely been the result of enthusiastic student sup
port, and with the growth of the student body this year such
support should be increased rather than diminished. Let’s
have a “Thundering Thousand” out at the first yell practice
The increased number of students in the Lniversity, and
the corresponding increase in the number of campus organiza
tions, 1ms made the old “everybody meet everybody” open
house impossible, but that should not prevent anyone from
meeting as many students as possible tonight.
Don’t forget to say “hello” to every student you meet, on
the campus or off. Sundays or week-days. Keep alive one of
Oregon’s best traditions. Say “HELLO!”
