Contest Over New Testament, as

New York, Feb. %Is there a literal
hell? Were tive dead raised to life by
Christ? How much credence is to be
placed in the visions in Revelation?
A last the contest over the New Tes
tament as to its literal interpretation
has reached the Episcopalians. A great
movement toward a more liberal inter
pretation of the New Testament has be
gun in the Protestant Episcopal church.
Among the leaders in the movement are
men who have been prominent in politi
cal reform movements. Some of those
concerned are ex-Mayor Seth Low,
Banker George Foster Peabody, R. Ful

Professor Brander Matthews of Colum

I has not been determined just how
to bring the reform into practical execu

the appeal has been more widely circu

brought before the next general conven
