SEES HOPE FOR
FUTURE IN IDEALS
UNITARIAN DEFENDS MEN AT
HEAD OF BIG TRUSTS
CALLS MERCILESS ENERGY A
Believes That Time and Change with
Crowing Culture Will Blot
Out the Present
In his sermon on "Standards of Art
and Religion" at the First Unitarian
church yesterday morning the pastor,
Rev. E. Stanton Hodgln, said:
"The criticism most persistently di
rected against America is to the effect
that we have no Idealism—that we are
wholly sordid and the scramble for
wealth crowds down and destroys
everything else, l believe that under
neath and Inspiring all this rage for
wealth is a genuine idealism that will
in time issue in a higher life than
anything Europe can produce. The
thing that has put our captains of
industry w. re they are today, leaders
in every activity and that makes them
such a menace, Is not their sordldness
but their Idealism. The artist begins
his picture; it grows as he works; he
sees constantly greater possibilities In
it; he carries it with him in his mind
wherever he goes, It is his life. This
picture suggests to him another and
greater one and the only thing that
can take him away from the first one
is the call of a second and he is thus
drawn forever on *>y his Idealism—
his artistic passion. Can you persuade
that man that lt is time for him to
: top—to throw away his brush and
paint no more, to spend the remainder
.•I" his .lavs in the leisure enjoyment of
What he has achieved? Not if he Is a
true artist. H.s Ideal forever calls him
back to his studio. He must fellow it.
It is his only joy. ...
"There Is as much opportunity for
idealism and artistic passion in a rail
road system or in a great business en
terprise as in a picture. It grows un
der the promoter's hand as the picture
does under the artist's brush. It is
never complete. Each achievement
calls In-.- something more and calls for
it. more Imperatively. Once a man real
izes that he has power to build success
fully and the passion draws him on
and on an.l he can no more quit than
the artist can lay down his brush.
"The artist In the intensity of his
passion is frequently thoughtless and
careless of the rights and Interests of
others and sacrifices them in the most
heartless manner. Much of the ap
parent ruthlessness of our captains of
Industry in crushing out competition
and stamping out whatever gets in
their way Is due to this same cause.
They are so intense in their purpose
to complete and round out their sys
tem that anything that opposes them
is relentlessly destroyed.
"It Is not sordldness nor vlciousness,
but is a perverted Idealism. This it
seems to me should give us great hope
for the future. Once the ethical and
spiritual element can be sufficiently In
jected into this ideal it will become the
greatest of all forces for good. Ameri
cans are really the least sordid of peo
ple. They are the least given to the
hoarding propensity. They care little
for money fur Its own sake. They
readily respond to benevolent and phil
nmthropic appeals. It Is because our
idealism has been thus far occupied
so exclusively with materia] achieve
ment that it appears sordid. There is
nothing so easily remedied as the evils
of misdirected Idealism. The passion
for material achievement may speedily
pass over to a mission for social ser
vice. We can see this change taking
place under our eyes today. Never be
fore has there been so much earnest
effort put both In the cause of jus
tice and in the endeavor to make life
worth while to all sorts nnd conditions
of people. Our captains of industry
are responding to the new euthusiasm
aS We'll as the old.
"The passion for material achieve
ment is still dominant, they push on
in the rounding out of their schemes,
crushing everything that opposes them
with relentless energy, but at li" same
time they are spending their millions
in altruistic services in fostering the
higher Idealism through educational
nnd cultural channels Of course it Is
easy to say that these philanthropies
are simply" hush money, attempts to
purchase Immunity and respectability.
It would be much nearer the truth to
see in it this double Idealism, and to
confidently expect the nobler Idealism
to soon triumph nod tin- reign of a
better day be at hand."

A large number of members of the

association gathered yesterday after
noon at the building to hear Milton
A. Mcßae speak on the young man of

"Success cannot be measured in dol
lars and cents, neither can it be esti
mated by the position in life a man
. holds," declared lie former head "i
the Scripps-Mcßae. newspaper league.
' "Whether a young man succeeds," he
continued, "depends not on his capa

What the world calls failure' often Is
really -i success. Sin. consists In
the climb." . Mr. Mcßae illustrated his
lecture by many personal experiences.

SAYS LEE DESERVES
PLACE IN PANTHEON
Fellowship Minister Declares That
Those Who Protest Against
Statue in Capital Have
In a prelude to his regular address
yesterday morning in Blanchard hall,
Reynold E. Blight, minister of the
Los Angeles Fellowship, commented
it""ii the question, "Shall the statue of
Robert !■:. Lee be placed in the capitol
"Each state has been requested to
erect In the rotunda of the capitol the
statues of two of its most illustrious
sons. Virginia chose Washington and
_L.cc. From certain quarters In the
north have come protests against Lee's
statu.'. Such protests can come only
from men who are entirely out of har
mony with the times, and who have
l.'. 11 marking time- for forty years,"
declared the speaker.
•'I. the statue stand as a proof
that the horrid wound made by the
Civil war is healed. If the south erred
she has suffered. God knows she lias
drunk the cup of anguish to Its dregs.
If she was guilty of a crime, punish
ment in full measure has been exacted.
The north can afford to be magnani
mous. Robert E. Lee was a brave,
hearted, chivalrous soldier. Brave
men honor brave men at all times, and
only a man with a yellow streak, ut
terly unworthy to be a conqueror, will
hold animosity and' petty spite .when
the enemy has been brought to his
knees. Thank God the bloody chasm is
closed, flic sons of ' Confederates and
the suns of Yankees have buried the
hatreds of the past and are uniting In
a splendid effort to make their common
country great and glorious.
"We can well afford to lift Robert
E. Lee to a place In our national pan
theon. Whatever criticism we may
make of his action In refusing Lin
coln's offer of the generalship of the
northern armies and his leadership In
th.- confederacy, we must acknowledge
that he was prompted solely by what
seemed to him the highest patriotism.
He embraced the cause of the south
from no motive of selfish advancement
or personal prejudice, but at the dic
tates of conscience. He lived to se.' the
error of judgment, but his purpose was
pure. ( , ,
"Future generations will exalt lit
ert E. Lee as a man of pure character,
tender sympathy and disinterested pub
lic service. The south loved him for his
sterling manhood and his charm of
manner. He - represented the ' best
type of southern chivalry, and all the
grace and courtliness of the southern
spirit flowered in him. All America
ay well be proud to say, 'Robert E.
Lee is an American hero, an American
ideal.' Well may we-hold him up be
fore our children as an example of all
that is best and truest In manhood.
Let England present her Gladstone, let
France present her Lafayette, for our
earlier civilization let us present the
peerless Washington. Por our mid
century glory let the north point to her
Lincoln, and the south, with tenderness
akin to tears, present as knightly a
soldier as ever drew a sword, as court
ly a gentleman as ever walked In sen
ate or in university, as true-hearted a
man as ever looked with level gaze
Into the eyes of his fellows, Robert E.
Lee; and let all the nation rejoice that
he may be claimed as an American."

pulpit last evening and gave an address
on "Religion in Art." He said in part:
"Art puts a premium on character,
for history is cHaracter doing things.
Art has its seat in the emotions and,
resolved to the last analysis, is a deep

"There are no standards of Judg

is a world of news. Art always has the
first word an.i, like the fair sex, she
always will have the last word.
"Great art is indigenous with Ideas
and acts and is the flower of civiliza

have come to mean the same things

She said in part:
•'Let us take an airship night from
Los Angeles toward the mountains in
the direction of Mt, Lowe. We guide
for that point and when arriving there
look beyond and higher and seeing at
a little distanc. an object like a cloud
at first, but as we progress, instead,
we find we approach the San Jacinto
"And so it is In our Intermediate
Christian Endeavor union possibilities.
We ie,,. always looking higher and ser
in-- something encouraging ahead.
"We must be persistent in our ef
forts and obedient in small tilings as
well as the larger ones. We are too
much inclined to wait for the big
noises to be heard in storms and tu
mults instead of listening to the still
small voice ami the precepts of our
Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
"Let us prayerfully meet the possi
bilities thai are before us which seem
to 1..- the greatest that can be be
stowed on any organization."
