WASHINGTON STUDIES THE MORMON CREED. Writing from Salt Lake City, Utah, under the date of March 27, Dr. looker T. Washington in discussing the creed of the Mormon Church says, I had opportunity while here to dis cuss the Mormon creed with the im portant officers of the Mormon Church Bishop John M. Whlttaker- handed me as I was leaving St Paul the fol lowing statement which contains Jn comprehensive form the creed of the Mormon Church as formulated in its "Articles of Faith." "1. WTe believe in God the Eternal Father, and in His Son Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost "2. We believe that men will be punished for their own sins, and not for Adam's transgressions. "3. We believe that, through the atonement of Christ, all mankind may be saved, by obedience to the laws and ordinances of the Gospel. '4. We believe that the first prin ciples and ordinances of the Gospel are. First, Faith in the Lord Jesus : Christ; second, Repentance; third,! Baptism by Immersion for the remis sion of eins ; fourth, Laying on . ot Hand3 for the Gift of the Holy Ghost "5. We believe that a man must be called of God, by 'Prophecy, and by the laying on of hands," by those who are in authority, to preach the gospel and administer the ordinances thereof "6. We believe In the same j organization that existed in the prim-' itlve church namely: Apostles, Prophets, Pastors, Teachers, Evange lists tc. "7. We believe in the gift of tongues, prophecy, revelation, visions, healing, interpretation of tongues etc. his paradisical glory. "8. We believe the Bible to be the work of God, as far as It is trans lated correctly, we also believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God. "9. We believe all that God has revealed, and that He does now,re veal, and we believe that He will yet reveal many great and important things pertaining to the Kingdom of God. 10. We believe in the literal gathering of Israel and in the resto ration of the Ten Tribes; that Zion 111 be built upon this (the American) continent; that Christ will reign personally upon earth, and that the earth will be renewed and receive his paradisiacal glory. "11. W claim the privilege of worshipping Almighty God according to the dictates of our conscience, and allow all men the same privilege, let them worship how, where, or what they may. "12. We believe In being subject to kings, presidents, rulers, and mag istrates, in obeying, honoring and sustaining the law. "13. We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and In doing good to all men; indeed, we may say that we follow the admoni tion of Paul. . "We believe all things, we hope all thinptV we have endured many things, and hope to be able to endure all things. If there is any thing virtuous, lovely or of good re port or praiseworthy we seek after these things. Joseph Smith. Just to what extent this creed will appeal to our Methodist or Baptist brethren in the South I am not sure. WThile, as I have stated. I am not a Mormon and have no immediate inten tion of becoming one I am free to say that there is a good deal In this creed that appeals to me. If everybody in the world can live up to it, I do not believe it would make them much worse people, but I seriously question one's ability to do so. I have promised these Mormons and others to come into this country again to see more of them, and after I have done so I may have more to say. Before closing I think I ought to add that I can find no evidence of those people practicing polygamy at the present time, but with the old custom it seems it was common for a man to have several wives. Since that has been prohibited by Federal law each man seems to be obeying the law. This is pessibly not true in the case of individuals who had more than one wife before the law was passed, but the Mormons are mighty interesting people. They be lieve in having a good time. Especially do they encourage their young peo ple to have a good time. I suspect I will disgust our bishops and minis ters when I say that it is a coming thing for dances among the young people to take place in the churcn building. This is not only permitted but encouraged. The church believes in religion. It also believes in business, and the leaders of the Mormon Church have the control of land, mines, banking concerns and factories. They say, and I think wisely, that economic progress must go hand in hand with religious progress. The Mormon Church is tremendous ly well organized. Aside from the matter of religion from a purely busi ness standpoint it is worth while to study this organization. It keeps 2,000 missionaries constantly at work in various parts of the world. BOOKER T. WASHINGTON This society was the first in Amer ica to give a complete rendition of Hiawatha. This will be the second time in Nashville that the complete Cantata has been rendered.

The Spiritual references used In the address were from the Old Testament Prophets. Isaiah, Jeremiah and Ezekiel. Mr. McGill's address in part was a fol lows: "The World's greatest need is for a man. When one looks upon a company of students such as gath ered here, he Is reminded of the old African proverb, "You may count the apples on a tree but you cannot count the trees in an apple." We may tell the number in this audience but we may not tell the influence upon HveB which may go out from this audience. The two great par ties represented In the political world spent anxious days in political con ventions last year for the purpose of selecting men as leaders. The re llglous world is constantly in search of capable trained men for important posts of religious leadership.
