alarming number of families which
seldom or never attend religious ser
vices. While a majority of these ara
classed as merely indifferent, many
agnostics and atheists were found.

ucated and well-to-do clas3. Physi
cians are notoriously lacking in faith
in supernatural religions, and the old
Spanish proverb,- "Where there,, are
three doctors there are two "athe
ists," Is said to be nearly true of
Chicago. To a lesser extent," lawyers
and educators' and other professional
men are indifferent or actively oppos
ed to religion. . . '

known scholar and orator, Dr. Man
gasarian M. Mangasarian, Is the lead

a member of scientific and materialis
tic seoieties. Some of the wealthiest
and most Influential people of the city
are said to support the work of these
