'I' V'J. .'vl". i: J. t T T t In speaking of the modem miracle in Russia, bv which tiic annual billion dollar traffic in vodka was utterly banished from the Russian empire, a writer in The Washington Times pointeJ out that "this has been brought to pass, in great part, by one man. He is Alichael D. Tchelisheff, a peasant by birth, originally a house painter by trade, then niaor of the city ol Samara, and now a millionaire." One more illustration of the dynamics of personality! We will write this Russian name (being too wise to pronounce it) after thc name of Lord Shaftsbur, England's immortal philanthropist, and Sun Yat Sen. the impersonation of Chinese liberu. But admiration for the individual is apt to becloud the fact that "the power ol the individual rests on the s-Vial cohesion of mankind." Michael D. T. was the center ot a vast social group which explains his power to effect a peaceful revolution among ISO 000.000 citizens. And it is through the social cohesion of the church that human kind is destined to effect its great victories. There is no other place in the world where the man of master stroke can achieve so much real good as in the broad fraternity of thc Christian Church. History knows nothing of the solitary benefactor; but one heroic man will rally a timid and wavering host to splendid achievement. En tirely too little is thought of the contagion of the crowd; when it is properly directed, it offers the solution of all the problems of social betterment the only problems tnat need concern us verv much at present. The social unit of the Church is seeking the best things, and is most willing to follow the leaders who know the way. Men of vision and leadership belong in the Church whether they acknowledge it or not. Perhaps your contention with the Church ic that it does not deal v,ith living issues, and fears to face facts as they arc. We had as well be frank and admit what truth there is in the indict ment. "There is probably not a single denomination which is not thrusting on its people questions : V I t GO TO CHURCH TOMORROW THIS ADVERTISEMENT WAS INSERTED AND PAID FOR BY A GROUP OF WASHINGTON CITIZENS WHO HAVE THE BEST INTEREST S OF THE CITY AT HEART.

H - H-I-l-I-l-I-I-I-I-H-vH-H-I-l'I-H lor which no man would care, and of which only antiquarians would know if the Churches did not keep these questions alive." But what manner of man am I, if, knowing these things to be true, I join the enemies at the gates with my adverse criticism? It would be far more becoming if. instead of reciting six hundred reasons why the Church is not up to date, I should make one positive contribution toward its betterment. To forsake the Church will never improve it. Absent treatment would be amusing, if its results were not so tragic. Perhaps you contend that the Church is living in a sound proof world, into which the reai struggle and heartbreak of humanity never come, or that the clergy spend their days in dreamy jr. isolation, in lofty realms of spiritual meditation, while most humans walk the streets. We will ? not deny the charge, for it is partly true. Neither will we accept it, for it is only true in part. We enter a plea for definite information. The matter is all too vital for rose water treatment. There is no divine right behind which any man can escape the responsibility of effective service for tnose who support him. "This corpse has been a minister of the Gospel for the past twenty X years," said a good bishop at the obsequies of a deceased pastor. Wherever that is true, a funeral J. is in order. Likewise, the Churches that find no cause for their existence outside themselves an; as far from salvation as the scarlet woman. The day is dawning when business principles will be X applied in the Church as in every public institution. On the other hand, we affirm that the above objections represent the exception rather than thc rule. Those who know the Church best criticise it the least. But lew outside its fold have any well grounded reasons for complaint. Ministers are very much Kkex human beings, and the churches are composed of the most sympathetic and sincere people in its community. Yes, thy Church is a mixed body, actuated by mixed motives, and it would have disintegrated long since had it not a Divine Head, who purposes to make it the medium of the world's restor ation in peace and happiness. And He will do it. If not for what it is, then for what it is be coming, all men of good will should go to church and become a part of it. Lyttl eton M. Chambers. Washincton. D.
