Different Humanist groups will work out the problem in various ways, but 1 can conceive of periods of mediation while the organ or piano or violin is played softly. The leader might well read paragraphs from sem? vriter w-hose words are inspiring. But asp: and meditation are very different 50 Mark left by a blow. 51 Dry. 52 Be mistaken.

There are A very few of the old ones that are not offensive , in their words and many that are in W" ’ musical settings simply jingles. Opportunity for creative composition of both words and ■ music for a whole new hymnal is afforded by the rise of the Humanist movement Some * genius may develop a new type of musical ' composition to interpret the spirit of the hew faith, something to take the place of the pathetic anomaly known as the ‘an'.bem.’ <<r pHE marriage ceremony under the new ft ligion will be quiet and simple. There will be less emphasis upon the religious and legal aspects and more upon the personal and social responsibilities of the man and woman. Tiff word obey’ will not be used and there will be no ‘giving away’ of the bride, since Humanists » take it for granted that women are persons in their own right and are not property to be given away. “Couples intending marriage will be encour aged to compose their own wedding service that it may mean more to them than a stereo* typed form. Such a service should include a s'..intent from each as to why he desires to oe married and a simple pledge of loyalty to each other. The person officiating can then give a brief talk on the responsibilities of the married relation and pronounce them husband and wife. If the use of the ring is desired, the couple will be urged to use a double-ring cere- . many that the parry of tile relationship be properly symbolised. “Os course, the new society will not object to dhorce, but it will seek to reduce the num ber of divorces by urging upon all he proper preparation for the marriage relation. It will seek, by raising the standards, to add dignity to the position of husband, wife and parent. °nly solution of the evil of increasing divorce is the proper preparation for marriage, and that must begin in childhood. There will be a Humanist school for children and young , people. Where the principal subject taught will bo the one now neglected by both public and ~rU ^a^.wS Choo:s ’ namel >- ‘How to Get Along .
