On a Sunday night in Plymouth church, Brooklyn, a great preacher was telling his audience some of the things which Americans had to live for. It was not a sermon, not a lecture in the ordi nary sense, but a simple, straight-forward talk—first defining the vision Lincoln had seen of a great America, and closing with a portrayal of the tremendous earnestness and idealism of our Roosevelt. Through it ran stories about people—Watt, the mechanic, Burbank, Edison, Harriman, Kipling, Bell, Carnegie, Rodin, Caruso— who had found the will within them selves to do big, things for others and for America. The audience sat spellbound. Here was a new thing, a picture-talk in which the stereopticon flashed out a series of vivid, stirring reasons for Better and stronger effort to make each individual’s life more worth wnile. The whole address was dignified, yet simple; spectacular, yet sincere; earnest, yet in no sense the usual type of propa ganda. Tlie speaker, Dr. Newell Dwight Hillis—one of the foremost men on the American lecture platform today—knew his subject, tor months he had studied, travelled, written, talked with others, to perfect a new method of presenting an educational entertainment which would build a loftier understanding of real Americanism. At last he had found it. But it was too good a thing to be con fined to Brooklyn, and the people of Bel fast have the opportunity of hearing these splendid talks given in the Congre gational church on Sunday evenings. They are the kind of talks that grip and make one want to hear more.
