It isj a mistake to assume that the observance of the
rules of religityf constitutes religion. One may live up to
' the very letter of these rules and yet have none of the true
spirit of religion. The traducers of the good name of Jesus
Christ who betrayed him and finally crucified him were the
' most punctilious formalists in the world. To the externals
they' were fanatically faithful. The outside of the platter was
spotless, the inside was unclean. Before they entered the
temple the feet were washed- Their prayers were loud and
7 long and timed with the preciseness of the rising and setting
of the sun. Every requirement of ceremonialism was rigidly
adhered to. These were the Pharisees who planned and con-
spired against the life and religion of Jesus.

Dr. Crilly recounted the result
of his investigation and analysis.
He ieferred to the records made
by Pacific coast students in east
ern colleges. Their average is
uniformly high. That none lias

silhouettes him on the intellectu
al sky-line Is due to the fact that
brains develop less rapidly than

It Is so easy to forget that Christianity is a religion of
love that despite the most slavish obedience to formula
Without love there can be no spiritual progress. It was
the beginning and the end of 'all that Jesus taught and lived.
Hypocrisy, intrigue, lust and murder, were everywhere about
hiny in the very midst of a religion so-called whose sacerdo-
talism was all that the most exacting formalist could wish.
1I& knew and saw the futility of it all. He warned them, he
entreated them to abandon the vanities of profession, which,
standing alone, led to spiritual death. A few of the more
jcourageous followed him. Others halted between two opin
ions, still others waited to see what manner of man was this
who had dared ttTthrust the selfish materialists out of the
temple; who had flayed the Pharisaical mischief-makers of
a religion I which had to do only with' externals; who dared to
teach the golden lesson of social equality and of religious
freedom. And strangely enough, after the lapse of nearly
two thousand years, these same principles call for more
' emphasis than ever, so sordid is the, same human nature, so
self ish and arbitrary are the relations among men.
f VV: The message which Christ brought to the world was a
message of love- To banish from men's hearts the canker
of hate'.and revenge was His aim. This He taught and lived ;
this He practiced against the taunts and persecution of crit-
- ics who only knew the pagan doctrine of an eye for an eye
and a tooth for a tooth. "By this ye shall be known as my
disciples, that ye have love one to another." Such was the
new message to a world enmeshed in dogmatic ecclesiasticism
and hypocritical pretense.
, ; 4 -'
; t What a beautiful message it is ! What a different world
"we should have if men but hearkened to it instead of sac
rificing peace and good will for the pottage of materialism.
Nor is it .a difficult message to translate into action if men
areionly true to their own better natures. What profit is
there in revenge? What advantage in spreading the venom
of hate and reprisal? Will the recollection of such a life
s soothe the worn spirit as the body enters the portals of
JeatJi? We are here for a little while only. We engage in a
.few activities which some of us do a little better than othrs
but which all of us do imperfectly. We permit our natures to
become enslaved to earth-bound ambitions and our passions
to run riot as though life held nothing better for us. Instead
of having fellowship with our better nature and drinking
from the weUs of spiritual knowledge, which we may if we
will, we yield to the sordid selfish passions which drag down
and never uplift. We hear of a fellow-citizen's distress and
suddenly remember some fancied wrong he has done us. Then
?re join the haranguing outcry against him Stephen was
toned ho death by those who disagreed with him. Paul the
apostle gave his life for his faith. Pontius Pilate practically
handed Christ over to the executioner, not because he be
lieved him guilty but bcause he feared the loss of his political
power. Caesar was assassinated in the house of his friends,
not because he had betrayed them but because of the jeal
ousy and intrigue of powerful contemporaries. All along the
mileposts of history are found similar examples of treachery
Let u$ be tolerant, kindly, charitable. The impulse to re
venge or the spirit of reprisal let us promptly repress. In
none of us are wanting the nobilities which embellish char
acter if only we would hearken to their cry, We could if
we would but we perversely won't love our neighbor as our
selves. Not one of the ten commandments is impossible or
illogical oi impracticable. And the men who will persistently
listen to the veice of his own higher nature will not only
ride safely the tides which threaten to overwhelm him but
will in the end, when age dims the eye and the reaper comes
near, have the satisfaction of knowing that at least he has
made the pilgrimage as best he could, fulfilling according to

Ir. Crilly expresses frankly his
opinion that the eastern colleges
will not be able in the future to
compete successfully in athletics
with those of the Pacific coast;
and he expresses some doubts
about their being able to main
ain an intellectual equality. "The
oil of the Pacific states is best
itted," he says, "to turn out na
'ional champions, not only in
phyaical but in intellectual lines."
He says further that "it is im
possible for athletes from Yale.
Trinity or Wesleyan colleges to
be properly trained for their
games unless they are fed the
proper legumes and receive the
adequate vitamines. If the ath
letes now training for Yale teams
could be fed the proper legumes
there Is no doubt Yale would re
gain its athletic supremacy."
So earnest is Dr. Crilly in the
advocacy of his theory that he

Speaking of the best sellers, it
doth appear that since the inven
tion of type a total of more than
six hundred million copies of the
Bible have been printed. It takes
about thirty million fresh copies
every year to keep pace with the
demand. The Hible is being
printed in 112 different tongues
which is a couple of hundred
more than any school teacher can
name. When it comes to the
making of books the Hible is the
wonder of the world, even from
the viewpoint of a non-believer.
There is nothing to compare with
it. Printing the HibU Is the big
