refers to Billy Sunday as a faker and
advises that the May number of the
Metropolitan magazine tells the
whole truth about hlm. I have read
the article in the Metropolitan and
find this said of Sunday:
"Is Billy Sunday sincere? I think
he is. I have seen him absolutely
dominate two audiences of 20,000
people in one day and I do not be
lieve he could put the fire, passion
and enthusiasm into his worlds and
actions if he were not sincere.
As to the social, economic and po
etical relations of the world about
him, I think he is just ignorant, that's
Sunday's ignorance of social con
ditions is probably not any more
dense than that of the majority of re
ligious preachers, However, a new
conscience is being born in the world
which feels that as long as. any are
deprived of life's necessities and com
forts and decencies, God's will is not
being done, The antipathy of many

that's because nature has provided
all ducks with rain coats that is,
coats of oil. A duck gets his oil sup
