BY CARL HOLLIDAY
TO a native Yankee who can still
remember old timet the word
I "relieion" can hardly fail to sug-
jgest the more or less willing habit
f listening to two long sermons every
8unday and of saying your prayers
! before you get into bed. There may
he some clergymen remaining in
America who still consider these two
habits as absolute essentials of godli
ness, but to the American preachers
ww n th war-cone religion has
L to mesa something vastly differ
ent and greater.
Oh, these war parsons cow tney
have dropped the shackles of confin
ing creeds; how. they have revised
ihm ftimnl nhiloflonhv of Jesn the
imple philosophy of service to one's
brother man. I have seen them under
(heart-breaking circumstances "over

War has compelled hem to slough
.If all non-essentinl ".nd personal
idislikea The harmless "rsures that
back home they had n'fed into
ins they now overlook even en
tourage; they have see& sacrifice
of Jesus duplicated ten thousand
times by common, wayward mortals
on the battlefields of France; they
have regained what the American
preacher was in danger of losing
belief in the innate . nobility of the
In those very acts against which
many a pnrson in his home pulpit
shot his brimstone oratory, he now
gladly participates. He is becoming
what every parson should be most
One Sunday not long ago a Y. M,
O. A. secretary met a Methodist
preacher, also a secretary, going
across a French field, with a baseball
bat under one arm, a large bundle
of cigarettes under the other, and a
Bible sticking out of his pocket The
parson stopped, somewhat embar
rassed. "I don't know," he stammered,
"whether yon will understand this.
It isn't quite orthodox, you know. I
am afraid my congregation would not
understand, and I know my bishop
wouldn't, but somehow (be dropped
the bat and put his hand over bis
heart), somehow something in here
tells me that if it inH orthodox it
it all right anyhow."
That preacher, going forth to man
age a ball game on Sunday afternoon,
was keeping more men in the ri;ht
path in those three or four hours than
possibly in any equal number of year;
In his ministry. And I think his
bishop would have understood.
.1 know one Episcopal bishop over
here who gets out his big til.uk pipe,
sits down among the suhiicis in the
Y. M. C. A. huts, and smokes aud
talks for hours with them. Give him
thirty minutes with such a group' of
young fellows and he will have them
pouring out their very soul to him.
THE 6MOKING PROBLEM.
And about the smoking how
dreadful, how sinful it was back
home! On the boat coming over, a
fellow worker remonstrated loud aud
lrng with me about tfiy enjoying
lartre, fat,' black cigars or any other
"Do you not know," he exclaimed,
"that It sets a very bad example,
and, besides, is very distasteful to
those of ns who do not smoke?"
Not that the boys do nut care for
sermons. I have seen them crowded
together upon the rough benches of
the huts listening to a prearher with
a reverence that I have seldom fmiotl
in an American church, and on a
Sunday when the sacrament is served
and they kneel by scores about the
rude platform that serves ns altar,
one is convinced that religion is still
a vital force in the hearts cf the
young. But tbey want their sermons
at opportune times and th-y want a
real man behind the sermon.
It it not by preaching but by glorl
em example that the parsons in
France are ouce more bringing reli
gion into its own. A congregational
minister in a Y. M, C. A, hut near
the front line expressed it well when
t said, "I have been preaching the
gospel for twenty years, but during
the last three months I have learned
far more about it in selling chewing
tobacco than during all those twenty
years in the pulpit"
Denominationalism? It is forgot
ten. Hecently a Y. M. C. A. secre
tary, one of the most prominent of
New England Presbyterian preachers,
walked seven miles to get a cruciiix
for a wounded Catholic soldier. An
other secretary, pastor of one of the
most fashionable Methodist churches
in Massnchusetts, served without dis
crimination Catholic, Protestant and
Jew until, gnssed and feverish, he
was compelled by the Association
manager of the district to go to a
hospital. But, even in this condition
he turned to me with a weak smile,
and declared, "This is (lie life fur
me! I wouldn't have missed it for

chaplain of an American university
chops wood and buiWs fires and heats
water fi the soul-sick men returning
in the dark from the trenches, when
these things happen the most irreli
gious of us must acknowledge that in
this hour of travail the npirit of Jesus
has returned to the world.
We ccn indeed fuliy agree with a
raw Yankee trooper whose language
was more picturesque than select
when he exclaimed, "I never thought
there was a hell of a lot in this Chris
tianity business, but damned if I
don't believe there is now."
