DECLARE3 RELIGION AND EDUCA

Religion Not "An Overgrown Institu

"Neither religion nor education can
afford to be divorced the one from the
other," summed up Dr. Charles W.
Gllkey, pastor of Hyde Park church,
Chicago, and Chicago University
faculty rtiember, In his talk on "The
Relation Between Education and Re
ligion," before the largest convocation
audience of the year In Memorial hall
yesterday morning. The unusual
crowd was swollod by the presence of
over one hundred members of the news
writing class under Prof. M. M. Fogg,
who occupied tables at the front of
the room and busily took down the
"I am often reminded," said Dr.
Gllkey, of the answer Mr. Borden P.
Brown made to a student of his who
asked him 'Is It this way or that
way? 'When yoifgrow older,' said
Mr. Brown, 'you will find many ques
tions which can not be answered by
either or. To answer many questions
Intelligently, and have right on both
sides of the question, you must not
either or, but both and!"
Religion, emphasized Dr. Gllkey, was
one of these questions. The Idea that
religion can get along without educa
tion is rapidly passing, although even
today, he confessed, there were relig
ious leaders "more picturesque and
interesting than profound" who
scorned the facts of science and tried
to "drop Darwin and his contempor
aries over the brink Into the eternal
pit because they belived in the doc
trine of evolution." Without educa
tion, religion Is thin, bard, superficial,
and brittle breaking under the great
strain of life.
Bringing to bear a clever illustra
tion. Dr. Gllkey compared religion
without education to a high-powered
automobile, filled to the brim with
gasoline, but carrying on the driver's
seat an Inexperienced man who had
neither knowledge nor the outlook to
see far ahead and steer a steady, even
On the other hand, education with
out religion. Dr. Gllkey pointed out,
Is fully as boneless. "It is like a
magnificent machine steered by a skill
ful driver without gasoline. It lacks
the motive power, the guiding force,
which religion furnishes. The machine
might be driven, he said, by the force
of selfish amMtlon, but although it
might make speedy progress, would
run amuck Instead of keeping to the
road. He called to mind Aaron Burr,
a brilliant man. and yet morally worse
Not an Overgrown 8uperttltlon
That rel'glon was not. as the under
graduate who, peeping over the border
of learning, and therefore apt to be
come extravagant in his attitudes,
would say "an outgrown superstltutlon
brought down to us from the Immemor
ial past." College students, like other
average human beings, wiil talk longer
about rellirlon than any other subject
under the sun, he said.
"Whv Is it thnt B'lly Srnday can ta!k

Is not because of bis plcturesqueness
or his slsne. nor his theology, which
for that matter, T do not think much of.
It is beratife Billy Sunday Is talk

interests of human life."
Dr. G11kev deprecated the ante
bellum attltnde of many men learned
in history and other branches of knowl
edge, who. declaring disbelief in re
llglon, cite doctrines of theology which,
although they were believed one hun
dred years ao. are no longer held to

IS GOING HIGHER
TEAM SHOWING LOTS OF OLD
Caley, Corey and Otoupalik Feature
Practice Last Night in the
Cornhusker stock has risen to almost
par during the past week. If it wasn't
for the inability of some of the men
to grasp the signals as rapidly as
they are given, it might be said that
the prospects for a victory over the
Jayhawks were almost bright.
The men are commencing to show
the kind of spirit they exhibited
against the Oregon Aggies. They work
as one large machine and make the
freshmen put forth their very best
efforts to keep from being run over.
The practice last evening, which was
behind closed gates, was featured
by the work of Caley, Otoupalik and
Corey. Caley made frequent gains
on wide end runs and Otoupalik and
Corey worked forward passes as If
their very lives depended on the suc
cess of each pass. Dobson and Seizor,
alternating at righ half, both did fine
work in going around the ends.
Stove for Caley
Coach Stewart has decided to install
a stove at some convenient point on
the fieM for the use of Caley, especial
ly if Saturday is a cold day. There Is
a stove in the office at the entrance to
the field and yesterday afternoon Caley
thought It would be a good stunt to
get warmed up while the coach was
giving him a rest.
But when the coach was ready to
use him Caley could not be found.
However, after a session of yelling at
him, he appeared. On the first play he
went around end for thirty-five yards
and in about three plays he had gone
over the line.
A total of eighty yards in four plays.

places say that it is very interesting
and instructive. In addition to this
film, a shorter reel showing activities
of the engineering faculty and stu
dents will be shown.

WILL REPRESENT TEAM AT KAN
SAS GAME RALLY
Riley and Harnsberger, Underclass
Presidents, Will Arouse Pep on
The simple announcement that Ted
Rlddell and John Cook will make
speeches at the football and Olympics
rally tomorrow morning should be
enough to draw a big crowd of the
co-eds at any rate.
For Ted and John have not appeared
in public as orators of the day, thus
far, and the speech tomorrow will be
for each of them their maiden effort
in pre-advertised eloquence.
They will not be the only speech
makers. Coach Stewart, and Assistant
'Coach Vic Halllgan will talk. But
both of them are polished orators well
versed In the tricks of stage appear
ance, and have been heard before so
that what they will do on the platform
tomorrow is not so muc hof a mystery.
Two other speeches, important be
cause they will bear upon the other
side of the rally the Olympics Satur
day morning will be given by the two
presidents of the underclasses, Joseph
Riley for the freshmen and Carl Harns

their classmates to gird themselves for

ON MIXER PARTY
ALL STUDENTS WORK. TO MAKE
Class Presidents and Vice-Presidents
on Committee High School
All of the University classes from
freshman to senior are. working to
gether to make the Home-coming mixer
Saturday night at the Armory a real
welcome to the alumni who will return
for the Kansas game, as well as a
Jolly party for the University students.
The committee in charge consists of
the presidents and vice-presidents of
the four classes, with a few others.
Harold Neff, the president of the senior
class, is the general chairman. As
sociated with him from the student
body are Doris Scroggin, also a senior;
Lloyd Tully and Marlon Reeder,
Juniors; Carl Harnsberger and Mary
Helen Allensworth, sophomores ;
Joseph B. Riley and Margaret Dodge,
freshmen; Searle Davis, Vancil K.
Greer and Harriet Bardwell represent
ed the alumni at the first meeting of
The faculty reception, starting
promptly at 8:15 will bo one of the
features of the mixer. A program,
lively and entertaining, full of the Ne
braska spirit, will be another. Dancing
will be a third, and refreshments will
be a fourth.
The Crowd a Feature
The good time that goes with a
crowd of true Nebraskans, celebrating
a game played by their own Cornhusk
ers, will, of course, be the feature that
will be the greatest drawing card.
No high school students will be al
lowed at the mixer, and those that do
get by the door and attempt to dance
with the University students will be
politely but firmly asked to leave.
The attempt will again be made to
have as many girls come without dates
The girls' organizations have con
fessed they would Just as soon come
without men as with them, but the
difficulty seems to be that the men ask
for the dates, and the co-eds do not
like to refuse.
So a special effort will be made this
week, to get the men to desist asking
for dates. They will be told that the
girls will be there anyway, and that
they can pocket 25 cents, save time,
and really make a hit.
