New YerI. Sept. 2. The Bcv. Dr.
Percy Stickncy Grant, rector of the
Church of the Ascension, last night an
ticipated action nt the cemlne triennial
convention of the Protestant Episcopal
Church, at Portland, Ore., by urging
the delegates te liberalize the nttltude.
of the church en the divorce question.
"At the coming convention," he
snid, "there will be nn attempt made,
se It is supposed, te narrow still fur
ther the attitude of the church. The
object is te feihid reninrriagc of all
persons, Innocent or guilty, who hnvc
been divorced for any cause."
Declaring that the basis for the posi
tion of the church is te he found in cer
tain "supposed words of Christ," Dr.
Grant stated that he doubted their au
thenticity, adding that the Bible cannot
be made n hnndboek for modern law
makers and that the church cannot
organize modern life en texts found in
the New Testament.
"The question of divorce is today a
part of the woman's question," he said,
in conclusion. "Twe-lhirds of the di
vorces are asked for by women. In
dustrial Independence will increase the
number of divorces. Divorce used te
be thought a scheme put forward by bad
