WAR ON THE CHURCH
Soon after the beginning of the war
reports from the belligerent Nations
Indicated a large Increase In church
attendance and a new enthusiasm In
religious exercises and functions. A
superficial optimism pointed to thes
manifestations as a warrant for pro
I hecies that the war would inaugu-
rate a great religious revival. The
more thoughtful however iiesttoned
how it would be possible for a sociul
calamity whl.h ran athwart the greit j
basic principles of Christianity to re-
suit In any permanent gain for the
Christlun rellgioji either In its spirit i
or Its organlted efforts. How could
brotherly love piety and good will!
b promoted by strife and hatred?
Would there be any opportunity for
the ethical side of Christianity to
make gains In the face of the floods
of violence deceit riot snd pillage
released and encouraged by war?
Was It not necessary that these uni-
versal elements which Christianity
as seeking to realize In the world
should for the time be overcome and
subjected to the limitations of rare
nationality and partisanship?
Such questions on the part of many
led to the feeling that Christianity
had somehow partially failed In not
preventing the war. and that religion
would suffer seriously In the confu-
sion snd strife that were to follow
These fears seem to have been well
grounded. Recent reports from Eng-
land and Cermany show that the Ini
tial enthusiasm which filled the
churches In the early months of the
strusgle has been slowly ebbing away

LAW AND MODERN LIFE.

portunity to hear from I'rof. Kelix

new Ideal which the Harvard I-aw
School has set for itself and which

soon may adopt for the better and

the trend of law In general are under-
going remarkable changes. In re-
sponse to new conceptions of what
the law should accomplish it is more
ithan ever Important that some body
of thinkers should be kept hard at
work to define and make clear Just
What these new conceptions are. It
Is the function which the Harvard
School is now seeking to till. It
would make of Itself a "laboratory of
law" where new theories and con
ceptions of law should be formulated
and tested with respett to their effect
on" society of their power to make
the law conform with the condition
of life today. Just as the medical
schools are laboratories for the de-
velopment of new scientific theory
which physicians may use and test
In their practice today. The new ai-
preclation that law Is a part of life
has brought an end to the notion
that professors and students can con-
cern themselves solely with the law
of the past while they let the life of
today take care of Itself. Itoston
