RELIGION

"India is a land of religions," said
Dr. Benjamin J. Dush, pastor of the
Socond Presbyterian Church, In his
talk before the Mission Study Class at
Patterson Hall Friday night on the
subject of "India."
"America has given the world two
religions," said Dr. Uush. "They are
Christian Science and Mormanism
and the fact that Utah elected a man
directly opposed to the Morman be
lief shows that even now that reli
gion Is on the downward path. India,
on the other hand, has given the world
threo religions, Buddhism, Bramln
Ism, and a mixture of the two, Hindoo
ism.
In this country, we have the bad as
well as the good, but the bad is al
ways In opposition to what our rell
glon teaches as good. On the other
hand, in India, the evil is considered
as much a part of the religion as the
good."
When asked what religion the great
poet of that country, Tagore, taught,
Dr. Bush said that Tagore knew a
great deal of our Christianity, for he
knew our language and had spent
some time in this country. In his
writings he apeaks of God in a rather
light as "Father." He
Christian
thinks of him as a person and his
poems show a mixture of the re
ligions of his country.
"In India they are saying now," said
the speakers, "that we have made
them dissatisfied with their religion
and that now we owe them another
and it is our duty now to teach them
something better."
The talk Friday night formed the
fourth of a series of eight to be given
to the Junior and Senior classes of
Mission iStudy this spring. The Freshman class is taught by Miss Marie
Collins and the Sophomores study
under Miss Mildred Collins. More
than 90 iper cent of the girls attend
these classes and the idea has proved
a marked success. The entire work
is in charge of the Missionary Committee, of which Miss Mildred Graham
is chairman.

Should Student Study Current History?

History is being made more rapidly today than
ever before in the history of the world.
The student of today is the citizen of tomorrow.
Therefore it seems that there is but one reasonable
side to this question of whether a student should study
current events and it is reasonable to expect that all
broad-minde- d
people are coming to the conclusion that
such a course should be established in the leading colleges and universities of our country.
Our student is asked to go upon the battlefield and
if need be give his life for his country and why then,
prohibit this student from studying the conditions, that
in the future he may not be needed to give his life for
his fatherland but will be able to live for humanity.
For example, take this gigantic world war. How
many of our students know where to go for the most
unbiased news? How many of our students know exactly what is happening and how it could have been
avoided? How many know just what part the United
States is playing in this world contention (except in a
very general way) ? Not many? How, in the coming
years, are we to forbid such another calamity that
makes every nation of the earth wear mourning? Only
by knowing the conditions today that have made and
are carrying on this war. Are we to wait for fifty
years to find the real facts in the matter, until our
grandchildren study them in the histories to be taught
them?

We think not. The Outlook Weekly Magazine is
giving, in connection with its editorials, a series of questions and topics of discussion to be studied by the thinking folk of today and while the whole planet is engaged
in its death struggle it is very little to do to acquaint
ourselves with the topics of the day.
True education consists in being able to "move" in
an emergency, to be able to know where to go for facts
and how to form an opinion from the reading of such

facts
Let us all be educated

Women and War.

It is a new and wise government which puts the
stamp of "true patriotism" on the effort to increase the
food supply of the nation. Commendation of such efforts has been wanting in the past. Never before, however, has there been so widespread a movement, backed
by government forces and
in by great woman's organiations, to conserve and increase the nation's food supply and eliminate waste. This campaign
against waste is long overdue. No nation is so prodigal
of its resources as our own, whether it be of life, labor
or land.
Such a campaign finds a ready response in the womanhood of the country. The women of Europe are
serving in every line of endeavor, that men may be
freed for active service on the battle front. So nobly
have they responded to their country's call, that the
former Premier Asquith declares they
have fairly won political rights. In our own land when
the call came for a mobilization of the nation's forces
the women were ready. Under the National League
for Woman's Service they volunteered by thousands to
serve as agriculturists, industrial workers, stenographers, aviators, nurses, wireless operators, in any capacity in which they might be of service. Though she
is ready to serve when the call comes the normal woman
shrinks from giving consent to any activity that
ultra-c-

onservative

destroys.

Woman is the normal conserver of the human
Both her nature and her training lead her to undertake constructive work for mankind. Her patriotism manifests itself in tasks which build up rather than
tear down. The woman who could not vote "yes" for a
war measure which means destruction of life and property was true to her instincts and her training. The
quality of her patriotism cannot justly be questioned.
The criticism which Jeannette Rankin evoked by her
action was a gentle zepher compared with the storm of
criticism which would have descended upon her head
had she voted a calm, unemotional, masculine "yes" for
a war measure. Men should regard her action as an indication that participation in public affairs does not
make her less womanly.
When war can no longer be avoided, however, and
our nation is engaged in what we believe to be a struggle for world democracy, the womanhood of the country is ready to make the utmost sacrifice for this cause
of the people. We, as college women, are called on to
do our part. This does not mean a rush "to the front."
There are few Molly Pitchers in modern warfare. By
offering our services for whatever line of work we are
best prepared, by practicing the utmost personal economy and thrift, we can enlist in that great "Service
Army," under the flag which stands for human liberty
and justice.
