Jesus’ Way Is
Foster’s Desire
Evolution Termed God’s
Own Process
“I recommend the way of Jesus
to anyone who wants to march on
into the future at the head of the
column,” said Dr. Allyn T. Poster,
lecturer of the Baptist board of edu
cation, in his speech at yesterday’s
assembly. His subject was, “Does
Evolution Dispose of Religion?”
“Is Jesus Christ a product of
evolution? Suppose He is, we have
Him just the same. The processes
of evolution are God’s. By no
chance can they belong to the
scientists. If Christ were a product
of evolution He would still be the
one altogether lovely, and chief
among ten thousand. Somehow
Christ was a revelation of God,” the
speaker declared.
“Wo describe things by accurate
measurements and then by symbols,
or first by symbols and then by
measurements,” explained Dr. Fos
ter. “God is not an Oriental poten
tate, wearing a tinsel crown and
surrounded by His courtiers, but a
cosmic God. Ho is everywhere, im
minent and transcendant.
“We are with Him all the time.
We do not lose God. We see Him
in every reaction in the laboratory.
God is not lost, but found,” he said.
Some postulate constant improve
ment in mankind, and believe that
they have but to sit tight and they
will go to the Elysian Fields, accord
ing to the speaker, but they have
only to go into the .laboratory and
hear a scientist speak on evolution
to know that there is a bloody strug
gle going on everywhere. He quoted
the Biblical definition of sin as
“the transgression of law,” and re
marked that when an organism vio
lates the plan of nature it pays the
bill, often -with extinction.
Specialization and cooperation
are two methods of advance, ac
cording to Dr. Foster. Life from
the lowest species to the highest is
constantly being given up for the
good of the whole, and individuals
do not hold their lives as their own,
but as at the call of the group. No
man Jias ever lived in perfect joy
who has not helped lift the burden
of the group, in the speaker’s opin
“Surely human life can reach out
to a higher environment and bo re
organized,” said Dr. Foster. “The
whole thing is based on variability
and reorganization. It is possible
for man to reorganize the atoms of
,his nature. For instance, new in
terests have come to you on the
No energy is ever lost and none
can come into this planet without
disturbing the energy already here,
according to Dr. Foster. The finest
energy is not in the body, not in
the mind, but in both these plus per

Secrecy Hiding Stunts
May Be Lifted as Time
For April Frolic Nears
Tomorrow you can say, “Tonight’s
ihe night,” co-eds.
For tomorrow night at 7:30 the
loors of the gym in the Woman’s
auilding will be opened to what
promises to be the most entertain
ing April Frolic in April Frolic his
tory. Assurance of this comes from
Frances Plimpton, general chairman
rf the Women’s League event.
She got the tip from the heads of
the four class stunts and the var
ious committees for features, cur
tain acts, music, etc., all of whom
have been working hard so that
they can truthfully say it.
It is also hinted that a touch of
humor will pervade the class stunts,
although the birdies are keeping
their luiowledgo of the stunts secret
as yet. Bumor has it, though, that
they will not bo able to keep it
out of tomorrow’s Emerald.
Announcement Orders
Suggested by Kinley
Members of the senior class who
expect to got their announcements in
time for commencement exercises
in Juno should get their orders
placed at the Co-op store within the
next few days, according to an an
nouncement made yesterday by
Sam Kinley, chaimnan of the senior
announcement committee.
The announcements this year are
quite different from thoso of pre
ceding commencements, according
to Kinley. A special effort was
made to find an announcement
which would combine attractiveness
with dignity and yet one which
would be sufficiently inexpensive I
that the class members would not |
be forced to add a great deal to
the regular cost of graduation.
Arrangements for the announce
ments were completed yesterday,
and orders will be taken immedi
ately. However, owing to tlio
length of time which is necessary
for the turning out of a good job,
the orders should be placed without

'Swan’ Makes Year’s Biggest Hit
During Repertoire Performance
The presentation of “The Swan”
last night at the Guilcf theater was
the most perfect production staged
by Miss Wilbur’s classes during tlio
entire year. It may be said that it
didn’t have a weak spot in it.
Every character was perfectly cast
and each individual interpretation
was remarkable for its excellence.
Miss Joy Ingalls as Alexandra,
daughter of the Princess Beatrice
(Grace Gardner), struck the note of
delicacy and whimsy that charac
terizes the entire play. As a very
gentle and sweetswillod young wo
man, Miss Ingalls forms the neces
sary contrast to Grace Gardner, who
is the dominant, strong willed wo
man that governs every one around |
her. The charm of the play be
longs to Miss Ingalls’ rendering, to
gether with Arthur Anderson’s dis
cerning construction on the part
of the professor, I)r. Hans Agi.
Grace Gardner’s portrayal of the
princess mother scheming for the
marriage of her daughter with
Prince Albert was practically flaw
loss aiul tlio more commendable be
cause of its difficulty.
Clean Potts, who played Prince
Albert,, quite captured the apprecia
tion of his audience. We have not
appreciated Mr. Potts sufficiently
before. lie has that enviable abil
ity to litorally make a lino with tho
slightest inflection of his voice.
Cecil Matson was quite on a par
with any of tho characters in tho
play as tho jovial friar, Hyacinth,
brother to Beatrice. Ho was hu
man and understanding, even as
Alexandria found him.
Still another outstanding charac
ter was Eunice Payne, who was
Princess Maria Dominica, mother
of Albert. She possessed all tho
qualities of a queen, majesty, aris
tocracy, pride and poise.
Tho unusual success of the play is
undoubtedly due to the careful and
accurate easting of each individual
part which is to the particular credit
of Miss Florence Wilbur, director of
dramatics. All tho minor parts were
well handled also, which together
with tho very good stage setting
and lighting effects, combined to>
make tho evening’s production en»
tiroly excellent iu quality.
