Rev. Mr. Manss of the First Congre
gational Church of Lincoln addres
sed the student convocation and mem
bers of the Stock Breeders associa
tion yesterday at convocation on the
Bubject, "The Psychology of Relig
ion." lie said in substance: The newest
phase of the problem of religion re
ligion on a scientific basis is creat
ing now standards for religious life.
Each mind, raco, or people has a pe
culiar conception of his relation to
God. Religion is a part of humanity,
therefore two religions are too many
for one individual. Religious concep
tions and views can be analyzed and
modified In the individuals. In Am
erica jellgon 1b a biological term.
The missionary problem of tlje nine
teenth century shows ub that racial
phases of religion occur. A compara
tive Btudy In this connecciomjxplulni
bow cricb religion contributes to the
other. All men are in their religion,
fundamentally the same; In expres
sion, vastly dl Heron t.
From tho standpoint of psvchology
various systems of pyschological and
religious thought are manifest. En
vironment Is the great factor and
overy phase changes as tho environ
ment is modified.
Tho two Important problems of the
church today aro, why aro the con
versions largly of persons from 15 to
21 years of ace, and why are tho men
gradually leaving the cnurch?
The young people's societies prove
injurious to the cburob, and probably
account for tbls state of affairs. Wo
aro also diverting religion from tho
defects of the individual. Such relig
ion causes nerve fatiguo. Religion
should bo handled moro scientifically.
Religion in tho past has been too sen
timental and has not appealed to tho
phlegmatic naturo of tlio adult man.
Intense and broad thinkers typified
tby the man of affairs of the nine
teenth ceqturv; and the phlegmatic
those of Blow deliberate action and
great will power compose the best
minds of the communities. Religion
Bhould appeal ttfbro bo tho roason and
less to the emotions if stability of
thought and more active adult mem
bership is desired.
A full rounded conception of relig
ion today would broaden and deepen
tho standards of thought, that men
of scntimont, action and reellnf may
all have a place In theology and the
churoh. A study of religion with the
comprehension of all tho four tem
peraments of men will create a new
religion for the twentieth century.

Close Contest With Y. M. 0. A. Team
To-morrow Night Looked For
One of Threo State Cham
pionship Games.
Tho game of basketball which will
be played In tho armory tomorrow
svenlr.g will he an oxoitlng contest.
Tho two teams aro probably more
evenly matched than any other two
teams In tho stato. Between them
lies the stato basketball champion
ship. Last year tho Y.M.C.A. won
from the University in ono of the
most fiercely contested games of the
season. This year Captain Koehlor'H
men hope to reverso the result of
last year. With tbd Improved
team and Individual work that the
team has shown this early in the
season and the support that ought
to be givon by tho student body there
Is every reason to believe that Ne
braska will come out of the gamo
with flying colors. Neither Captain
Kooliler nor his men anticipate easy
victory. Tho Y.M.C.A. team been
practicing with all diligence during
the last few days and as the team is
made up to a large extent of old and
practiced raon Its strength can easily
be understood.
The great importance of this game
to tho University lies in the fact
that it Is one of a series that will
be played to doolde the state
regents with regard to dropping work
without permission is beginning to
bo approbated by the few who have
not glren It serious consideration.
Permission to reregister or to regis
ter In tho continuation of work care
lessly dropped will bo granted only
upon tho payment of the $3 registra
tion fee.
