WORLD SEEKS A NEW IDEALISM First Congregational Church Greets Pastor Returned from Edinborough TELLS OF GREAT CONFERENCE While Midway at Sea Dr. Day Hears by Wireless of the Times Disaster To the strains of "Home, Sweet Home," and the waving of the Chau tauqua salute by a congregation that taxed the seating capacity of the church, the Rev. William Horace Day returned to his pulpit as pastor of the First Congregational church yesterday morning after an absence of five months passed in European travel. Following the greeting of Dr. Day, during which hand-clapping was given, the children of the junior class filed in review before the pastors of the church and presented Dr. Day with clusters of long-stemmed chrysanthe mums. Dr. Day repeated the sermon on "The Supremacy of Jesus Christ In the Modern World," which he deliv ered at the closing session of the Con gregational council recently held In Boston, prefacing the sermon with a short statement of his trip and with words of warm praise for Los An geles. "After 18,000 miles of travel I have come home with vivid impressions," Bald Dr. Day. "While midway be tween the two shores on the Atlantic ocean the wireless told of a great tragedy in Los Angeles. The west with its great wldenesi is like the great wideness of God's mercy, and 1 shall not soon forget the beauty und the possibility tor things that im pressed me on again returning to Los Angeles. As I passed the scarred and shattered building at First and Broad way I realized the imperative neces sity that our church should serve the community in making it what it should be." A DIFCTCCI/r TASK Dr. Day took his text from Matt. 28: IS, and said in part: "The supremacy of Jesus Christ in the modern world—is ho winning or losing, are we in the midst of a grad ual defeat or in the midst of a cer tain victory? "Jesus Christ is king, but even In Christendom there are those Who do nut acknowledge him. la the Chris tian church equal, or is it losing ground? I come back from the great Kdinborough conference, perhaps the greatest gathering of Christians since the first century, with two Impres sions: the difficulty of the task of making Christ supreme and the possi bility of success. "One could nut attend the meeting at BMinborough without gaining a sense of the obstacles, gigantic as they are because of the vast untouched area. One of the most important facts was a published atlas showing the missionary centers and great Btretcheg whose mtnotony was unbelleved by the mis sionaries. Fully 260,000,000 people be long to this untouched area. "There is the Incompleteness of re sults in missionary work. Who has a (sited a great oriental city and has gone with almost wearisome labor to see it all, who of us but thank God for what Is being done and who has not turned away with the thought, 'what are these among so many?" In Cairo 1 wandered into one of the book stores, and there 1 found Heckle's "Riddle of the Universe," which signifies much in the midst of a non-Christian land. If the life of the church at home be de i ayed then the Christian missions will die of heart disease—nay, rather oi' head disease. SEEK TRIE FOUNDATION "Men on both rides of the Atlantic are realizing that they have failed to learn of Jesus Christ. Germans, Britons, Americans, and all the rest, are seek ing for a true foundation for the new idealism for a better day. Our time is tired of merely naturalism. There is rising in the thought world a new ap preciation of the spiritual. Today as never before the great army of schools and colleges with their young people with hearts wide open are ready to hear the still small voice as it whis pers and commands. "The possibility of success is assured at home and abroad. On that atlas were the red dotted spots showing the mission field in the great untouched areas, but as the great, strategic gate ways you will find the little red dot for the missions. In spite of all we sorrow and are ashamed as we must be of the wrong, the waste and the folly of sectarianism in these lieids. "If we want a human solidarity we must preach the gospel. There is only one place where you can turn a cad into a brother, and that is at the foot of the cross, "Mohamet, Islam with sword, knife, lire and pillage, are powerless to estab lish a human solidarity. In Alana, ravaged by its massacre, to whom has the bey turned, who is to bring to that city a renaissance? "The Rev. William Chamberlain, the hero of Adana. To him the bey turns as one that is to teach Turk and Chris tian the foundation for a human solid arity where liberty and fraternity may be found, and the time is coming when cvi py knee will bow In the name of Jesus Christ as King of Kings and Lord of Lords." BISHOP BELL RETURNS FROM EASTERN SESSIONS Rev. John A. Eby Selected as the First Brethren Pastor Bishop William M. Bell, bishop in charge of the Pacific district of the United Brethren church, has returned from a three months' tour of the east, during which he gave a series of ad dresses, presided at several conferences and spoke before the Christian con i ion. While in the east l;ishop Bell secured Rev. John A. Kby as pastor of the First Brethren church of I_.os Angeles. Rev.

Mr Eby, Bishop Bell will (ill ilie pulpit of the First church, corner Hope and Pico streets. TELLS HEARERS TO LEARN CHRISTIANITY BY PRACTICE Preacher Says Few Carry Re ligion to Daily Life Learning the Christian life by prac ticing it was strikingly sit forth by David Cory Peters in his Sunday morn ing sermon at Broadway Christian j church. He asserted that scarcely more than one in ten among professed Christians seriously undertakes to put into practice in daily living the teach ing of Christ, in consequence the great majority do not know the fullness of joy and victory which is attained by earnest disciples, be sai<i. Mr. peters urged upon his hearers the imperative necessity of learning the Christ life in daily practice in order to form the character which qualities one for an abundant entrance into the, everlasting kingdom of the Lord and i Savior, Jesus Christ. ETERNAL LIFE IS THEME OF BISHOP WATERHOUSE Prelate Who Has Presided at Conference Preaches at Trinity Church Bishop R. G. Waterhouse. who has been presiding at the annual confer ence of the Methodist church South for Southern California, preached a forceful sermon at the morning sprvlce yesterday at Trinity church, the con- J ference having adjourned from Satur day evening until Monday morning. The bishop took his text from St. John 17:3: "And this is life eternal that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent." He said in part: "Eternal life is of profound interest to us all. It is the endless beyond that follows the preparatory human existence here on earth. "The difference manifested in our | lives here may he illustrated by two tries, the one having been mutilated by the woodmen, showing that it is In a lying condition, while the other stands up lofty and full Of vigor. The one, you say. is the object of de cay and death, while the other is clothed With ample bark and foliage for its euur.ee in life. CIIAH.M TKKISTU* OF MFK "Life has three characteristics, vege table, animal and human. The first may be represented by a plant, the second by a bird and the tbird by a child. They are all contiguous, leading up to the highest in the classification, j The child may become a theologian, historian, etc. He may study the in stincts of the lower orders and classify them with the higher in this life. "A higher life from all these is given expression in the Bible, that of eter nal life, which is encompassed in the human heart with the intense longing regarding its endless existence. "Men rise early and toil late for gain. They think It the source of worldly gratification. The student thinks that he can apply his knowl edge to the practical side of life. The politician plans to gratify himself by having others minister unto him. "The best thoughts of men are those centered on the merits of Christ, the Son of Cod. No imperfections obstruct the achievement of his omnipotent ad vancement. He gives us the raptures of his greatness. He caused his death and the raising himself from death and all his sufferings for the sake of redeeming the lost that they might inherit eternal life. BROTHER OF AIX MEN "The attributes of God were trans mittted to Christ with all tehir mar velous characteristics. Christ, how ever, did not divulge his knowledge of science only in a meager way, and his wisdom regarding it was in his silence. He was the true man using ordinary methods :imong the lowly to meet his ends. His thoughts and con versation were centered on God and lie was a citizen and brother to all men. "Christ through his omnipotent j.cw.-r Is the redeemer of men in this life for the life to come, which is through all eternity." DR. BROUGHER PREACHES ON IDEAL YOUNG WOMAN Dr. Brougher preached last night at Temple Baptist auditorium a sermon Of unusual interest on the toulc, "My Meal Young Woman." The sermon was made up In part of quotations from letters that young men had writ ten him upun the subject. Among other things he said: "The ideal young woman as de scribed in this sermon is a 'composite picture,' th< chief characteristics of which have been furnished me by young men. In many instances they set the standard pretty high, and no doubt it will !)•■ rather Btartltng to some young women to know what some young men think about them. "A young woman's training should give her a sound mind in a strong body, and should lit her to make her own way in the world. Her education should be as thorough as a young man's. She should be equipped to meet a man upon the same footing in the business world. "The hiPiU youftg woman will know how to cook, keep house and be thfl queen of a, home. This thought \v;ts emphasized by almost every young man wlio wrote. One young man says: •My Ideal young woman is one who i.s not always sick and complaining, but one who has good physical health. Bhe has an average education, gome musical ability, is neat in form ami dress, is modest and refined, has a sweet disposition ami -,i good face, but above all, knows how to cook and keep house.' "With society constituted as it is. it is very essential that a young wom an should seek to have a noble char acter and a good reputation. One writer says: 'Young women are nut careful enough in regard to their as sociates. Many of them are willing to go with young men who are known to be of questionable mural characti r, They cannot be seen on the streets or in the grills with these men without losing their reputations for absolute purity. 1 "The Ideal young Human is a sin cere, cheerful, good-natured Christian. The graces that make one attractive must be the expression of the spirit of. Jesus Christ. The cheerful, bright, happy young woman will be able to mi ■ I tin- trial- and troubles of life and no( beaome despondent and blue, she will be kind in her judgment of others and will ever be ready to forgive ami to help.

LOCKE BEGINS SERMONS ON HEALTH Pastor Will Tell 'Truth About Health. Disease. Medi cine and Faith' Dr. Charles 1.1 ward Locke at the First Methodist Episcopal church last evening, in response to many requests. I organ a series of sermons on •'The ' Truth About Henlth and Disease anil i Medicine and Faith." In these sermons lie will answer the questions. Cod Send Disease?" "Can Disease Be I Cured by Faith?" "Is Christian Science Christian?" "Is It Scientific?" "Is Sick ness Going out of Fashion?" "How to Keep Will?' "What Makes People | Did?" etc., etc. Last night, as an in troductory sermon, Dr. Locke preached on the text: "I will praise tine; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made." Psalms ir;:t-14. Th<> theme was: "The Human Body an Incontrovertible Ar gument Against Unbelief and Agnos ticism." Dr. Locke said in part: "We have just one life to live, and these beautiful autumn days are tell ing us of the rapidity with which the ns come and go. We are beset on ■ very hand by Influences which either help or hinder us in our heroic en deavor to make a life. Any ordinary iii-iii can make a living, but only extra ordinary endeavor can make a life. "Jesus Christ said: 'I am come that you might have life and that you might have it more abundantly.' To seek for the fullness of life is a Christian Ideal. Bin, and sickness, and temptations, and adversity, and Borrow, and death, are constantly encountered. "If we would make a life it is indis pensable that we should adopt the right theories of life, and that without de lay. To travel on tin- wrong path is a tragical blunder; and the time and op portunities lost are Irretrievable. "I, therefore, invite your cordial co operation in an effort to find out the truth with reference t" disease, and faith, and medicine. For, upon a right understanding of these familiar things di pends the happiness, and morals, and usefulness, and longevity of mankind. "The drift of thought today is God ward and Chrlstocentric. Prof. John Flake, in his great New York address, said that the day of antagonism be tween science and religion was forever past and that henceforth science would find its mission In testifying to the everlasting reality of religion. "And why not? Christ and a divine revelation are but corollaries of the proposition that there is a designer in nature, ir there >-.• a designer for his body there must be a designer for man's spiritual nature, and Cod as a redeemer and comforter is easily ae eessibie to faith ami demonstration. i.et us be as honest ami aim ere as the psalmist, and when we discover how wonderfully man is made 11 - 1 vi shout in humble and ecstatic adoration, 'l will praise then' All in a Box for You g —— '...-' ; .- ' .

CAN LIVE A SPIRITUAL LIFE EVEN IN BUSINESS It is the opinion of Reynold E. Blight, minister of the Los Angeles Fellowship, ; that a man can live a truly spiritual 'J\ life and do his full duty as a profes sional man or man of affairs. It Is not ■ an easy task, he acknowledged;?* in J* fact, it may be a lite of sacrifice and 4, suffering, but the reward in spiritual fr. blessings far outweighs the sacrifice., Speaking: of the - general topic In. Blanc-hard hall yesterday morning Mr, Blight said: "The spritual life In the busy world ? of today is not a smug Phariseelsm,-i* an austere Puritanism, the manifesta tion of an unkind, critical spirit or the J; maintenance of a superstition,'. holier than-thou attitude toward men and things. Tho spiritual man is the man who recognizes that this is a spiritual universe, that goodness Inheres in 'the fv very nature of things, that the ' moral - law is one with gravitation, the bloom- 5?; Ing of the flowers, and therefore seta;; himself to follow after righteousness' at any cost. V , "The world is apparently a great bat tlefield, an unending struggle betweea the forces of darkness and the forces m of light. The spiritual man places him- ''' • self at all times on the side of light. Under all circumstances he battles for honesty, honor and the spirit of love. ', ' "The man who sincerely espouses the cause of righteousness may not make I' a fortune, or attain a position of emin once, but he will gain something; that v& cannot be valued in dollars or 1 mea sured by material standards, the con sciousness that lie is co-operating with God in the creation of an ideal world. To lie a co-worker with God, to be hi3»| representative. brings the J largest, deepest satisfaction possible to.human understanding."
