"Party lines were thrown aside, as

"I am confident It will provo an

This statute was drawn by Chief

For American Children an
Ohio Professor's Ambition
Dr. Van Loon Will Write- "The Story of the
Bible" to Correct Deplorable Conditions by
Which 75 Per Cent, of Our Little Ones
Never Hear of the Book Except When They
Go to Movies.
By Marguerite Mooers Marshall.
How much docs your child
know about the Bible.?
YOU knew Bible stories when
you were ten years old unless,
of course, you belong to the much
press-agented "younger genera
tion." You knew what happened
to Daniel In the lions' den and
you could repeat the talc of Jonah
and the whale.
Suppose you examine your
young son or daughter on Biblical
lore. Perhaps the result will be
satisfactory. But if you nro
three fathers or mothers out of
four you arc likely to bo told
that tho Hons ate Jonah and that
the whale made a running fight
ngalnst Daniel. Or words to that
I-'or the churches of America
held an Investigation recently. In
tho course of which they discov
ered that three children out of
four In this country never rccelvj
any religious education of nny
kind. Any observant person
knows how few children nowadays
hear the Bible read at home or
listen to Bible stories at moth
er's knee. It simply Isn't done.
"And so," Dr. Hendrlk Wlllem
Van Loon, author of "Tho Story
of Mankind," Informed me, "I am
going to write 'The Story of the
Bible' for tho thousands of chil
dren who know nothing about It
except what they se in tho
Dr. Van Loon is a tall, broad
shouldered, sober gentleman, with
the blue eyes mid firm, pink
cheeks of his Dutch nnccstois.
Needless to say, he Is ns good an
American as any man north,
south, east or west of Antloch
Collcgo, Ohio, where ho is pro
fessor of tho social sciences, and
where he is bringing up tho two
sons, ten and fourteen years oli?.
for whom he writes his simple,
clear and fascinating story-hW-torles.
I made that discovery when 1
asked how he planned to go about
tho not-too-casy task of lewrltlug
the Scripture..
"1 shall write the Bible story,
ho explained, "to tell my boys
what they want to know, to an
swer their questions and make
them familiar with tho story and
the characters of the world's most
remarkable Book, a book which
has influenced in countless ways a
largo section of humanity.
"I plan to tetl tho story of the
Bible in about 100,000 words, and
my book will be divided Into ex
tremely short chapters, so that
each ono may be read to or by a
young child at a sitting. And I'm
going to make pictures for the
book, Just as I did for 'The fitory
of Mankind.' One of tho first
questions every child asks when
it hears a story is. 'What did he
look like?" I want to show my
boys and other children pic
tures of Bible hcenaa and people.
"I shall begin by explaining
how tho Bible camo to bo writ
ten," continued Dr. van Loon.
"Yes?" I Interrupted, Interro
gatively. "And what explanation
shall you give? Hhall you say
that tho Bible la of Dlvino ori
gin?" "I shall not." calmly denied Dr.
van Loon.
"Then you'll havo Mr. Bryan
after you!" I prophesied.
"My IkjoU," austerely observed
the historian, "will not be writ
ten for tlie members of small
town" ho mentioned a certain
denomination "churches. It will
bo written for Intelligent persons
,n and out of all churches. It will
b? absolutely non-sectarian.
"I shall describe the illblo us
the product of the Jewish people,
Van Loon
"IMn going to wrlt
The Story of the
Hlblc Ut fnmninrljec
children with It."
"My book will bi
written for Intelligent
perHonn In and
the churchcR."
and I shall point to It as an il
lustration of how, through one
book, ono people may make Its
Impression on the wholo civilized
world. Tho Bible is the great
thing for which tho Jews will
always bo remembered.
"I shall not divide my narra
tive into books on tho exact plan
of the original, from (.lenesls to
Revelations. Kor instance, I do
not see the need of retelling for
the children all those Old Testa
ment wars, mere Incidents In the
history of the Jewish people. I
shall fell the Gospel story only
once; It is, of course, told four
times In the New Testament, by
Matthew, Mark, Luke and John."
"And told so beautifully," I re
marked. "A friend of mine says
that tho Apostles were exceeding
ly good reporters, whatever else
they were. Isn't It rather a pity
for children not to learn the Bible
Ktory through tho superb English
of tho King James version?"
"I shall Incorporate Into my
(est the most famous and beauti
ful passages," Dr. Van Loon re
assured me. "And wo all know
that children AUK NOT reading
the King James version or anv
other, nt present.
"Seventy-five per ent. of out
children ure not going to Hunda
school. At least 80 per cent, of
them never read tho Bible and. in
fact, know nothing about it except
for the occasional hints they re
ceive at tho movies. Tho Bibln is
In tho same class with Shakes
peare, so far as our children are
concerned. Ask ono of them about
either and he'll nnswer, vaguely.
'Oh, yeah, I heard something
about that at the plctuie house
the other night.'
"No one wants tu bring back
tho tlmo when children wens
obliged to attend six serv'ces
every Sunday," continued this
hlstorlan and father, earnestly.
"But when wo took away from
them tho ultra-strict religious
training of other days, we put
nothing In Its place. AVo have
barred religion from the schools.
Wo don't tell Bible stories nny
longer in our homes. Th- children,
as I said, do not 8" to Sunday
School nnd. Indeed, the, teaching
in most Sunday schools ii such
that the intelligent parent hesi
tates to send his child there.
"The consequence Is that larg
numbers of our children aro
growing up without any moral or
religious codo whatsoever." de
clared Dr. Van Loon
He paused a moment, then
added whimsically, In the rather
thick voice that Htill carries un
oddly accented undertone:
"When the children read my
story of the Blblo I hope they
will bo kinder to the kitty:
"I mean." he nmplllled. "that I
hope they will be Kinder to every
living thing, that they will love
better lovo each other and tho
world. For tho story of Jesus Is
the most wonderful lesson In love
that over was written. There is
no other character in all history
or literature whoso whole life Is so
beautiful, so noble, so touching.
"Tho Blblo story ought to lie In
teresting to children There is no
reason why not. Yet at present,
most of them look bored at the
very mention of it, when it does
not arouso In them a f'eling of
vague resentment."
"One tiling which I liked so
much In your 'Story ot Man
kind,' " I observed. "Is tho fact
that nowhere in It did you 'write
down' to tho children. If you
needed a word with three or four
syllables you didn't hesitate to uso
It. I hope you'll follow the samo
course In 'The Story of the
Bible.' "
"Oh, I shull." prom.'-'d Pr Vun

Mr. and Mrs. Kepner Held
Prisoner, Beaten and Robbed,
They Say in Atlantic City.
ATLANTIC CITY, N. J., March 21.
Because they refused to pay a bill
which they declared excessive, Mr.
and Mrs. William Kepner of Ardmorc,
I'a., said to be socially prominent,
wcro beaten, robbed and held prisoner
Sunday night In a small room of a
boardwalk cabaret, according to their
complaint to Prosecutor Gasklll.
The complaint has resulted In the
arrest of Howard Stark, manager of
Paul's Cafe, formerly tho Moulin
Rouge, at New York Avenue and the
Boardwalk; Charles De Hart, a mu
sician there, and Charles Phillips, nn
entertainer. Stark and Do Hart were
charged with assault and battery, and
Phillips, In addition, was charged
with grand larceny.
According to Mrs. Kepner, she nnd
Mr. Kepner went Into the cafe Sun
day night and stayed a short time.
When they started to leave, she says,
they were presented with a bill for
$73, which Mr. Kepner refused to pay
on tho ground that It was excessive,
sho said, and the two were hustled
into a small room and tied.
Mr. Kepner, according to his wife,
was assaulted by the three men, one of
whom also took a platinum watch le-
longtng to her, a fur coat belonging
to Mr. Kepner and valued nt $1,000,
und about $50 In cash. The two

room from 11 o'clock Sunday night
until 7 o'clock yesterday morning,

"Any eight-year-old child

CHICAGO, March 21. Kdlth Uocke
fcllcr McCormick, daughter of John D.
Rockefeller, tracing the progress of
women, told representatives of many
women's organizations hero yesterday:
"If a woman marries outside her
own clan or trlbo she'll bo a slave.
History proves It."
The meeting nt which Mrs. MiCor
mlck spoke was preliminary to the
Women's Progress Kxposltlou to be
held hero Juno 3 to 10, of which Mrs.
McCormick will be General Chairman.
Tho engagement of Mrs. McCormlck's
sixteen-year-old daughter, Mathlldc, to
Max Oser, Swiss riding academy pro
prietor, recently was announced.
"In olden times," Mis. McCormick
said, "if a man were bored with the
women of his own tribe, he went and
stolo a wife fiom another clan."
The stolen bride had a sorry time of
It, according to Mrs. McCormick, who
said the women of the men's tribe al
ways tinted tho alien bride, who con
sequently had to depend for happiness
entirely upon her husband, to whom
she was virtually a slave. From this
condition, she said, there grew up a
kind of .serfdom for women which en
meshed women ho married outside
their own tribe.
This period of serfdom was an era of
down euives for women, she said, but
It whs sandwiched In between two up
curves, tho ancient and modern.
'Women are now victors. But they
am muili lnoie than victors," Mis.
McCormick said, "for they havo 5one,
much more than fight for their place,
which has been won through sociologi
cal development and growth.
"All tho modern woman wants Is to
lie let nlono, to develop, to demon
strate and to expand," she said.
"Mother love is Important, but It Is
nut everything. Woman's universal
love is- a bigger thing."
