HERE are three fundamental reasons for nonattendance at re- ligious services, though many excuses are put forward as to why men absent themselves from the public worship. I do not think anyone is prepare to show just how church attendance compares today with that of 25 years ago, the world over. But, losing sight of the matter of comparison, the fact remains that a great multitude of people do not attend church. In a survey by the Federated Churches a few years ago, it was esti- mated that two-fifths of the population on the West side of this city were not afliated with any church. This is the serious problem that confronts thoughtful Christian people. One reason why men stay away from church services is because their parents did not set a church-going example before them. A second vital reason why so many men stay away from church is because so many church members have so little interest in the church services. It is the men el the church who represent the church to the men outside the church membership, and the thing that. will appeal most to those outside is not the well-appointed building, or the finely balanced service, but the Christlike character of the church members. With all its faults, this age in which we are living appreciates reality and consistency. The man who does not go to church is looking on, and is influenced by the church member's interest, or lack of in- terest, in the church's services. The third fundamental reason why so many stay away from church is because they misunderstand the purpose for which the church exists. These reasons are not the' excuses that men always offer, but they are, I believe, the reasons which principally account for the absence of many. Church folk should face the facts if they are to remedy the situation. American Legal Training Lacking in Background of the Highest Importance By DEAN GRAFTON ROGERS, University of Colorado. The apparatus for educating American lawyers is an. undigested, heterogenous muddle. We are admitting men to practice with varying preparation. The typical man seems to have about one year of slim col- lege work and two years of reasonably good law school experience. He enters the bar with little information in literature, history or the social and political experience of /he race. He enters the practice, moreover, possessing no closer contact with the actual daily work of a lawyer than an apprentice carpenter would have if he never had a sa or square in his hand, but had read and heardabout them for some years. Both the English and the French systems contemplate for the lawyer a general cultural education, while the American system is teaching s vocation before it trains the mind. Furthermore, the American system pays too much attention to the private side of law practice and too little to its public side. I am not convinced that the American lawyer is as kcen-a public critic and as far-sedng a public adviser as his brother across the sea. Necessity for Stressing the Spiritual Significance of Education By RABBI A. M. HERSHMAN, Detroit. if religion is anything it is everything. All education has a spiritual significance, It is with that belief that the young Jewish student can reconcile science and religion. But much as these earnest people who somehow manage to get a twinkle into the eyes, who feel that their faith has lasted for thousands of years and will continue to survive, especially in a land such as Amer- ica, where they have freedom of worship--much as they insist that their young people do not need to be saved immediately and completely, they do admit that there is no reason for not making assurance doubly sure, for not working in subtle ways to solve the problems of the adolescent orthodox Jew. The trouble is that for too long we have concentrated on the motto of beginning with the child, and we have failed to realize that we have been ending with the child. I think, wifh Victor Hugo, that we will have to begin with the grandparents and never end. Urgent Need for Devising Methods to Absorb Oversupply of Labor By FRANK A. RUSSELL, Economic Authority. In this modern age of speed we are overstepping all bounds. Prog ress in science and inventions, while good in a way, has also added a new and severe burden on the human race by eliminating man power in preference to" machine power. Unemployed are walking the streets in every city and town. They have no means of support at all. There should be a way to absorb the oversupply of labor. We need highways, since we have made the automobile a common carrier. The price of a first-class battleship could easily be invested in good, broad, substantial highways, a lasting benefit to the people, instead of a battle. ship that could be destroyed in a few minutes. It would be money well spent and would start currency circulation all around. America is great enough to do these things, and here is the oppor. tunity to relieve a great burden and receive from the masses gratitude such as common people can show. Three Requisites for the Man or Woman Who Would Advance in Life By DE. DAN F. BRADLEY, Cleveland. Imagination, curiosity and humor are three characteristics for the man and woman who will advance continually. Ninety-five per cen! of life is delightful. Growing up is glorious and you will always haw, the enthusiasm of life facing you. The world has always been growing up and man is like the world We are always in a period of transition and transition periods alway* involve certain unpleasantnesses, but there are more pleasures. We have seen the world grow up from the period when crime had to be paid for by physical pain. We have seen the world graduate from the idea that sin is vulgar. And we are ever searching for a more ethlca! standard. i i (The KITCHEN ,CABINET (). 1928, Western NewsvarUnlon. bells wh|c Character Is llke h rlng out sweet musio and which, when touched accidentally even, resound with sweet mustc.Phil. lips Brooks.
