McNAMARA CASE IS
TOPIC OF SERMONS
Two Berkeley Preachers Dis
cuss Moral Aspects of
Doctor Patterson Dwells on!
Their Aparent Inability to
See Moral Wrong
BERKELEY. Dec. 17.—Two Berkeley
pastors today discussed the crime of
Xamara brothers from an ethical j
standpoint. Rev. Samuel C. Patterson j
of the North Berkeley Congregational
church spoke in the evening on "Some
Reflections Upon the Moral Aspects of
the MeNamara ("rime and Confession." i
while Rev. Richard M. Yaughan of the \
!"irst Baptist churefe, preached <>n
"Guilty: the PJea of the MrXamaras." ;
Doctor Patterson dwelt on the appar
ent inability of the brothers to see that
anything morally wrong.
•■This only emphasizes the fact." lie
*ai(i. "that there is need of development
amung all our people of the feeling that
any ait is wrong that harms in any
way any other part of society."
"Instead of acknowledging their act
iis a crime the McNamara brothers pose
as martyrs to their cause. Those that
encourage them in this stand evidently
siiare the apparent moral obliquity of
men. Education is manifestly
needed to bring home to all the fact
that such acts as these are morally and
ethically wrong and therefore indefen
Rev. Richard M. Vaughan said that
the crime was not an incident in a
class war between labor and capital.
"The rank and file of organized labor
are honorable American citizens," he
added. "If the individual laborer has
sinned so has the individual capitalist.
It is more harmful to bribe a legisla
ture than it is to blow up a building.
J'or neither the sins of violence nor the
f corruption can there be exten
uation of tolerance. Only one align
ment is defensible, law abiding citi
zens versus criminals. The motive for
startling plea of guilty seems to
have been prudential rather than moral.
The acknowledgment of wrongdoing is
h duty. We owe it to ourselves, to
others and to God."

the front door, and saw two men rifling
the cash register. Jacobaen called to

Speaks in Berkeley
BERKELEY. Dec. 17.—Prof. Edward
3. Ward of the University of Wisconsin
Bpoke in the auditorium of the Berke
ley high school this afternoon on "The
Public School as a S6cial Center."
Professor Ward dwelt on the social
center work in which he was engaged
in Wisconsin and illustrated his talk
with lantern slides. The lecture was
of particular interest because the

Rev. H. J. Loken of Berkeley
Says That Belief Should
BERKELEY, Dec. 17.—"1 do not be
lieve baptism necessary to gain en
trance to the kingdom of God," said
Rev. H. J. Loken this morning from his
pulpit in the First Christian church of
Berkeley. Rev. Dr. Loken's theme was
"The Significance of Baptism," this be
ing the last of a series of four sermons
upon the subject of baptism.
The opinions of the pastor on bap
tism, especially in relation to baptism
by immersion, attracted much attention,
owing to recent discussion in his church
and his withdrawal from the faculty
of the Berkeley Bible seminary on ac
count of his views.
"The Bible says little about bap
tism," said the speaker. "The fault is
that it has been made an initiative rite
of the church and therefore translated
into a theological dogma. An interpre
tation has been put upon it which it did
not have originally and that interpreta
tion has made the Christian church a
close immersionist body.
"We ought not put a fictitious value
on baptism," concluded Dr. Loken. "Be
lief is more important than forms and

"There is no use in spending small

rial services were held this afternoon in
