cance of this seemingly small gain is
realized when the conditions are In
dicated under which it has been
achieved. There have been many
barriers in the way of the increase
of Sabbath school membership, among
which are to be noted the neglect of
home instruction, the increasing use
of. the Sabbath as a day of travel,
recreation and social visiting, and the
falling off in the attendance of chil
dren upon public worship.
."Other profound and aggressive
causes for the present crisis in Sab
bath school work are briefly mention
ed. "The fact that only 40 per cent of
Sabbath school pupils are brought

Jesus Christ, or to become communi

"The startling effect of the motion

Lord's day is, that there are about
10,000,000 youths, under 20 years of
age, .who do not attend the Sabbath
school and who receive no religious In
struction at home or in the public
school. The situation is a menace,
not only to business, but to morals
and religion, to the individual concern
ed as well as the nation.
"In addition to the usual causes of
desecration of the Lord's day by its
enemies and those who are indifferent
to its claims we are forced to the mel
ancholy conclusion that this sacred In
stitution Is to an alarming extent be
ing broken down by those who call
themselves its friends. The sad facts
are that an increasing number of

have been unusual efforts to nullify or
change them for the worse. More
than 25 bills ' have to date been de

prospect is that a like brood of nefari
