REV. W. L. SPERRY SPEAKS AT PHILLIPS BROOKS HOUSE

"Christianity and Competition" Is Subject of Talk In Which Speaker Calls This the Problem of the Day

"To fit a cooperative religion to a competitive system of life, is the problem that confronts us in the present day". These words formed the central theme of a stimulating talk given by the Reverend William Learoyd Sperry, Pastor of the Second Congregational Church of Boston, at the Phillips Brooks House yesterday evening on the subject "Christianity and Competition".

"Until the people who are engaged in the active life of the modern world bring themselves to understand the language of a cooperative religion instead of that of a competitive life it will be useless to endeavor to influence them by that religion". Dr. Sperry continued by outlining the problem of the struggle between Christianity and Competition, and concluded by saying that most of the intellectual fighting of the next few years will be concerned with the endeavor to solve this problem.
