Shall the words of God, which were written on tables of stone when the great prophet Moses was living, thousands of years ago*--anl which have guided man through all ages— NOW be made to conform with "modern" ideas? For THIS is exactly wliat faces tlie religious people of America today 1 In St. Louis, next month, the convention of the Protectant Episcopal church is going to consider a pfopoul to REVISE the commandment! 1 And, from present reports, it is likely that the propped will carry, despite the opposi tion already encountered in many quarters to what is being termed by many as "a sacrileg ious proceeding." But the Episcopalian clergy view this nutter of boiling down God'l ten commandments in a very different, in fact in a very matter-of-fact, light! Rev, Herbert M. Denslow, rector of noteifd professor of pastoral theology at the Gen eral Theological seminary, presents these as the generally accepted arguments rOR the "re vision." "Tlie plan is," he says, "to shorten tbe farm of the ten commandments as used in the Episcopal church service. It should be'remeiw.ered that tbe commandments themselves ap pear in different forms in the scriptures. "Those 'who advocate this change believe that the ten commandments *wffl gain in EMPHASIS, if shortened. They say thai BRFA'ITY constitutes the chief strength of most precepts. And so many have dcclarel that God's ten commandments would be more powerful if recited in the form of simple commands 'with the REASONS eliminated. "A vote at tbe coming convention to adopt this change will be only a vote of recommenda tion, however. Tbe project then must hold over three years, and not be acted upon perma nently until the following convention three years hence. So there will be a great deal of dis cussion before any real change in tbe form of tlie ten commandments is actually possible."

"There Is no question ln :ny mind that the proper name of the mountain, that is, the Indian name, should be restored official ly by the same authority that of ficially blotted It. I will aa a matter of course support a me morial to this effect at the com ing session of the legislature." Metcalf suggests that a move ment by King county members in support of the plan would "he a graceful acknowledgement of the strong support they have receiv ed from Plaree county upon all measures of Importance to King county ln the last ten or a dozen years, starting with the A.
