Why shouldnt we have a scienti
fic calendar Why shouldnt time
first day of every month come on
1 limo same Jay of tho week And
I why shouldnt any particular dato
Iin any month always bo on the same
day of the week
A suggestion that seems bettor than
the one recently mentioned In The II
Citizen Is made by Prof Chas E
Slocum It Is proposed to divide the
year into 13 complete months of
exactly four weeks each by Inserting
a midsummer month to be known
as Sol This accounts for 364 days
10f the 365 14 In tho scheme Christ
mas day would not be counted in any
I week or month but would stand out
by itself thus making tho 3G5 days
In the samo way Leap Year day
would stand by Itself every fourth
year at the end of the year Tho
other method which was previously
outlined provided for two half
months to be Inserted at the mid
dle and end of the year This seems
much the moro simple It Is suggest
ed that the reform begin with Christ
mas Day 1916 but sentiment in
matters of this kind Is about as fos
silized as religious sentiment and It
may bo hard to overcome tbo every
thing Is in favor of the now schema
and nothing against
It Is sometimes Bald that Baptists
would find It moro difficult than any
other denomination to como Into a
fellowship with churches which do not
hold that Immersion Is the essential
symbol to express Christian life Jt
Is therefore Interesting to know what
Baptists think of this matter among
themselves when they aro not de
fending before outsiders their deno
minational faith A Congress Is held
annually at which Baptists speak
their minds freely not as represent
ing tho denomination but giving their
personal views on live topics Tho
Congress this year was at Augusta
Ga with the Southern Baptists wjo
had declined to enter Into tho Na
tional Federation of churches It was
almost the only denomination taking
this attitude The relation of Bap
tists to tho Universal Church was tho f
toplo on which Rev John E White
lor Atlanta led the discussion Ho pro
tested against tho suspicion and dig
trust with which Baptists sometimes
regard proposals for union Ho com
pared Baptists to the older son In
tho parable of tho Prodigal a little
selfrighteous In his consciousness of
superior fidelity and Indulging In a
certain resentment toward those pro
digal denominations which have wan
dered away Ho postulated these
four fundamentals to union Tho
acceptance of tho Bible as a divine
revelation the Soushlp of Jesus
Christ tho san city of tho human soul
In Its Immediate fellowship with God
the kingdom of heaven as a kingdom
of righteousness to bo realized on
All else Mr White said might be
loft to tho arena of liberty and discus
sion Volunteer speakers wo learn
from the Examiner such as President
Evans of Crozier Theological 8cm
ilnary Dr O 11 Ferris of Phlladel
Iinary and Dr R P Johnston of Now
York spoko strongly in favor of larger
liberty Tho latter said Wo are all
for unity through tho other people
coming to us Baptist are hero po
culiarly Inconsistent Wo talk liber
ty of conscience but will not permit
the exorcise of that liberty where it
leads to convictions other than those
to which we have arrived Wo em
phasize the spiritual but mnko tho
term of admission to our churches cor
omonlnl If Jesus Christ wore allvo to
day ho would swoop out of existence
our wholo potty squabbling about
baptism The political tendency tho
world over Is toward democracy our
religious tendencies strangely enough
are toward aristocracy Of course tho
narrow view was not unrepresented
In the discussion But the frank avow
al by leading Baptist ministers of
such sentiments as these quoted siva
warrant for encouragement that some
thing nkln to the vltlble Universal
Church is feasible In our day
This is a now association or ra
ther It is to bo an association and
this Is what the letters stand for
