At other times, religion placed almost exclusive emphasis on intellectual assent to doctrine or creed. The religious mnn was the one who raised no question regarding inherited formulns of belief, but who unhesitatingly said, "I believe." Again no question was raised as to the quality of the spirit and attitude dominating life and conduct. The present controversy between modernism and fundamentalism is in a lnrge measure based on a definition of religion primnrily In terms of the Still others have defined intellect. religion as implicit obedience to laws In such instances, nnd regulations. religion has been in danger of losing vitality. The spirit disappeared and the letter took its place, until the warm human nnd divine quality of love, the sense of pcrsonnl union and relationship, wns sacrificed. Once more, there have been times when observance or rites nnd ceremonies was thought to be the essence of religion. We have not fully overcome this danger. Attendance upon church services, the formal act of baptism, in communion are or participation still considered by some the chief or sole condition of salvation; Religion, irgiitly conceived, stirs the deepest emotions of man. It involves loyalty to certain fundamental intellectual convictions. It creates a deep sense of obligation, demands rigid obedience to eternally true moral Student Dies From Sudden Attack Of Appendicitis Lucien B. Kcach, son of Mr, and Mrs. Obrie Keach, of Henderson, Ky., died during the summer, following an opcrntion for appendicitis which was performed the same day. Mr. Keach was a sophomore at the University last year In the College of Arts and Sciences and was a member of the Sigma Beta Xi fraternity. ideals, and it finds in, ceremontas, rites and Institutions valuable means of quickening and strengthening religious life. Let it be remembered that religion is not exclusively or preeminently a state of exalted emotion, nor is it an intellectual assent to statements of even eternal truth, nor obedience to laws and regulations or painstaking observance of rites and ceremonies. Religion is more than any one of these, and, important as all these factors arc, it is really more than all of them combined. This significance of religion is being recognized, as never before, in recent discussions of religion. Relig ion quickens, inspires, enriches and brings into play the entire personal- ity. It stirs and purines the emotions. It challenges the mind to con stant endeavor and it inspires the will to noble decision. Thus is trans formed personality to loving, service. 10 Library Enlarges Staff; Adds Books DUCFOED PEN DE LUXE During the summer months the University library has catalogued a total of 469 valumes, including works on general and special subjects and fiction.
