G. C. Knight'
Edits New Book

Instructor in English at U. of K.
To Publish "Readings From
The American Mercury"

Another book to bear upon its title
page the name of a professor in the
University of Kentucky will soon appear in Readings from the American
Mercury, edited by Grant C. Knight.
The volume, published by Knopf, is
to be a collection of representative
essays culled from the files of the
American Mercury and meant to
serve as collateral material for
courses in advanced composition and
essay writing.
The choosing of Professor Knight
for this work indicates that our English department, recognized as among
the best in the South, has attracted
the attention of H. L. Mencken who,
as everyone knows, is not overly
friendly to pedagogues.
This will be Professor Knight's
second book to appear in 1925; the
first, Superlatives, also published by
Knopf, has been widely read, and re
viewed in the Book Reviews of the
New York Times, The New York Sun,
The Saturday Review The Chicago

country. Yet wc venture n guess that never heforc were the good folk
of Dayton and Tennessee so "hot up;" never before did they perspire so much;
never before did they exert themselves so much as during the trinl of
the schoolmaster, Scopes. And all for what? Why the heating and sweat- ing and exerting? Why the columns daily coming out of Dayton and being
printed in the newspapers of the world? As one on the sidelines some
distance awny we have been trying to find rational answers to these questions.
Judged By a Sense of Humor
The cause at issue, as the lawyers would say, was a very simple one.
The legislature of Tennessee, presumably though some organized group influence, had passed a law forbidding the teaching of any theory of the creation of man "that denies the story of tho divine creation of man ns taught
in the Bible, and to teach instead that man has descended from a lower
order of animals." Scopes was charged with having violnted that statute.
He admitted that he had violated it. His conviction on that charge was
n foregone conclusion, nfter a jury composed almost entirely of "fundamentalists" had been selected.
But both the prosecution and, tho defense seemed to think a great deal
more than this simple violntion of a state law on trinl. To get the right
perspective, to view the whole proceeding calmly and rationally, it should be
judged by a sense of humor. As every one down in Dayton, and especially
those on the side of the prosecution, took themselves with deadly seriousness, none of them is competent to tell us really and simply what it was nil
obout. Perhaps u tolerant sense of humor may aid us in getting nt the solution of the whole matter.
From this viewpoint, ns we see it and we are not speaking irreverently
it was not a state statute, or the schoolmaster Scopes, or the Bible that was
on trial in Dayton. Though no one said so, perhaps no one there thought so.
consciously, a lot of puny creatures, some of them ranging high in the scale
of human experience and intelligence, had placed God or rather n conception of God on trinl. There was the conception of God ns interpreted
literally from the Bible by uncompromising fundamentalists. There was the
conception of God as held variously by those who believe in the evolutionary
theory of creation which is not of necessity at variance with anything in
Genesis. This is what was on trial down in Dayton in tho dog days of July
in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and twenty five. And
this is what makes the trial humorous and warrants our judging of it by a
sense of humor.
Intolerance Also on Trial
From a serious point of view there was one other issue on trial, and that
issue was Intolerance. For is there had been no intolerance on either side
there would have been no such statute for Scopes to violate, no such trial,
no such bitterness in speech and action, no such scenes to stir the humor
of both gods and men. With this brief reference to the one really serious
phase of the trial the one phase, that is, that might be handled and
remedied solely through human agencies let us return to the considerations
that come to us through the exercise of a tolerant sense of humor.
As God or human conception of God was on trial, let us see what prospect there was of the matter being settled before a court of law and twelve
jurymen. The Bible tells us that God is a spirit. It also says that man
was created in His image. As no two human minds have exactly the same
conception of what a spirit is like or what a spirit is, and as no two human
beings are either mentally or physically exactly alike in every particular, or
in any one particular, it must be obvious that no body of men can tell us
definitely just what God is or what He is like. Each one has his own conception of God, therefore the most and the best we may hope to do is
to draw a line and an extremely indefinite line at that between those
who believe there is a Supreme Intelligence who, "in the beginning created;!'
and those who deny the existence of such Intelligence.
The Bible and Science
Even the Bible gives us no exact description or definition of God. .As
various men at widely various times set down what we now accept: as
the Bible it is natural to find in that book varying conceptions and definitions
of God. And this indefiniteness and variation apply as well to the biblical
story of the creation, including that of man.
There are two accounts of the creation of man in the book of Genesis,
and either one may be used to support the fundamentalist conception of a
special, immediate, fiat creation of man, or the development of man, physically, mentally, and spiritually through the process of evolution, or gradual
unfolding and progression. Scientific evolution, embracing the evolution
of man as well as of all other created things, is in no sense in conflict with
the Bible to one who keeps alive a sense of humor and uses such intelligence as he may have developed.
The fundamentalist who quotes the twenty-thir- d
Psalm, and finds
in it the best of food for his belief in God, should not be unmindful of the
who wrote, "The Lord is my shepherd, 1
fact that the same philospher-poe- t
shall not want," also wrote:
"My substance was not hid from Thee, when I was made in secret
and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Thine eyes did see
my substance, yet being imperfect; and in Thy book all my members were
written wheh in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of
Was David inspired when he wrote the twenty-thir- d
Psalm, and unin
spired when he wrote the 139th? Could we have a better definition of scien
tific evolution than that just given? Stripped of its poetic form, that quo
tation from the 139th Psalm is as complete and "inspired" biblical authority
for the truth of scientific evolution as "And the Lord God formed
man of the dust of the ground," is biblical authority that man was created
instantly and specially as we now see him, and never was or never will be
subject to the unfolding processes by which every other created thing was
brought into existence.
One Historical Parallel
To bring out more strongly the humorous viewpoint in such matters
as that under observation, let us drop back about a century to the town
of Lancaster, Ohio, for something parallel to the Dayton trial and the Tenn
essee statute. The school board of Lancaster had refused to allow certain
"liberals" to use the school house, and an ancient document gives the .rea
son as follows:
"You are welcome to use tho schoolhouse to debate all proper questions
in, but such things as railroads and telegraphs are impossibilties and rank
infidelity. There is nothing in the word of God about them. If God had
designed that His intelligent creatures should travel at the frightful speed
uii uuur uy Biuum, nc woum nave clearly foretold it by His
noiy propnets. u is a uevice oi satan to lead immortal souls down to hell."

of evolution, of public
school development, of world-wid- e
use of both the railroad and the telegraph, was not enough to prevent the Scopes' case.

The result of that conflict was a compromise a hint for the present-da- y

two patrons one of cereals and one of flocks. And through these two

and ignorance.
The Few Needed Things
As far as fundamentalism and modernism nre concerned nil that wo need
to know, nnd to accept, is this: "In the beginning, God created." How or
when He created or by what processes He is developing His plan and purpose need not concern us overmuch.
Whether man has come through evolution from n single cell or n single
electron, cither one endowed by tho Creator with nil tho necessary powers
and laws for His purpose; or whether ho wns created spectacularly nnd instantly ns n specini and separate creation, makes not nn atom of difference.
It is what he does with what ho hos thnt counts.
In our efforts to foster education of our youth In itself n process
of evolution, or unfolding, or drawing out the main thing is not to bar
nny source of truth or possible truth nnd to fit tho young to tnko care of
themselves nnd to live in harmony with their fellows everywhere.
What the world needs most is kindness, broad tolerance, unfailing
frnnkness, nnd light abundance of light. And these arc the things
to be taught in our schools, to bo preached in our churches, to be lived
in our daily contact one with another.
