The Sunday school today contends with
competitors never thought of in the olden
days. The waning power of parental auth
ority is another enemy of stated religious
education. But the great weakness lies in
the antiquated equipment and the out
grown practices of backward churches.
The contrast between the public school
and some Sunday schools is pathetic. The
child feels this disparity even though he
may not analyze it.

weakness and are boldly attacking it. The
period of transition is upon the Sunday
school and upon methods in religious ed

can and will be solved.
That it must be solved is the conviction
of every true American, whether church
goer or not. Religious education is every
bit as fundamental to the welfare and hap
