Berkeley, CaL. June 27. Dr. John C
McTaggart, , former president of Trin
ity college, at Cambridge, England, who
has come to the state .university to de
liver a course cf lectures at the summer
school, cava indication v of originality
and daring as a philosopher when he an
nounced to a group of conreres at the
faculty club his belief that dogs ahd
similar animals had souls and were Im
mortal, r .
Dr. McTaggart Is an atheist, although)
he has been retained In a high place In

the most orthodox . of Institutions. He
wrote a book" last' year 'called' "Some
Doarmaa -of Religion.'' -which has been
one. of the best sellers In philosophical
literature, .,. -., .; ..' . . ...
.When. asked about. his declaration of
belief in the possession of souls by dogs
and kindred animals. Professor ' McTag
gart said: .: ..
, "I .certainly believe that dogs, horses
and all animals, that can.be classified
as o- higher order, nave souis ana sre
immortal. I should tm greatly surprised,
if Such were not the case. Reason and.
logic indicate f that the -animals l liave
mentioned are possessed of souls .and
that 'they ' aret Immortal, as. man is Im
mortal. ' , i

sence is Immortal. It is difficult -to
draw the line and-mark the division be
tween animals that, may be considered
to 'have - Intelligence, warranting the be
lief" in their immortality, and animals
that are not thus endowed.
"I do not try to draw the line, 'for. to
do- se would be, -practically ' Impossible.
I think,' however, 'that there can be no
doubt about the correctness of the idea,
that all the higher' animals, like man,
horse and dog,-have souls." - .
