Straton, pastor of Calvary Baptist Church today, with regard to the assertion of William Morris Davis at Harvard com mencement, that morals really belong more to the field of science than to the field of religion. “Professor Davis’ whole argument seems to have been found upon a series of false assumptions. For one thing, he assumes .that scieuce has brought great benefit to the world, but says nothing about the far greater benefit that religion has brought. “Another argument of Professor Davis is that religion, a* he puts It, has ‘tres passed upon the proper field of science' because religious leaders have preferred to hold on to God's revelation rather than to bow to human speculation. I will only say that, whereas there 1* scarcely a scientific textbook now ten years old that is not out of date, the Bible, after all these thousands of years is still doing business at the old stand. 'The facts of revelation, verified by in dividual Christian experience—as, for ex ample, tny own conversion, from a life of sin to a life of service—are facts far more real than the alleged “facts” which bol ster up some of the scientific hypothesis of today as for example, the little bas ket full of mouldy bones, which had been dug up haphazard from different parts of the earth and are paraded before us with their grinning grewsomeness as “proofs” of the cheering supposition that we are descendants of monkeys, rather than chil dren of Almighty God. “1 therefore, dismiss with a considera ble degree of amusement, the manifestly absurd statement of Professor Davis that morals belong to the realm of science rather than the realm of religion.” LA FAYETTE NEW PLAN APPROVED Plans for the re-capitallzatlon of the LaFayette Motors Company of Indian apolis, which brings $2,000,000 additional funds to the company submitted on May 29, have been approved by stockholders at a special meeting at the Hotel Bel mont, New York City, according to word received by officials here today. In a statement E. C. Howard, vice presi dent and secretary of the LaFayette Com pany said, “with this indorsement from stockholders tha LaFayette is placed on a sound financial basis and is now pre pared to go so: .card with plans for an orderly progress and an uninterrupted production schedule. “This is a reorganization In a financial sense only and will not affect the per sonnel of the factory organization or de sign and construction of the LaFayette car. The Lafayette will benefit, how ever, by the closer contact of Charles W. Nash, president of this company as well as the Nash Motors Company of Kenosha, Wis, Mr. Nash will bring to this com pany the benefits of a manufacturing and executive experience in the motor car industry which began more than twenty years ago.

Before the coroner's Jury in Heyward, which Investigated the suicide, Stewart was referred to as a parasite and was arrested on a statutory charge, which was dismissed Jan. 5, 1915, because of Insufficient evidence.

I won't appear in j court if he is brought back here. When I want to forget, and when I thought he was dead, it al! comes out.
