Stratton and Mather to Meet on Subject of "Science and Religion"--Rabbi Wise on Program

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The Phillips Brooks House Association announced last night a list of 13 eminent speakers who will deliver popular lectures on topics of current interest throughout the coming year. The subjects cover a wide field, ranging from Clarence Darrow's ideas of capital punishment to a symposium on the subject of "Science and Religion" in which Dr. John Roach Stratton and Professor K. F. Mather will speak.

Raymond Robbins, a noted social economist and an advocate of organized labor, will be the first speaker. On October 26, he will give an address entitled "The Next Step" which treats of the outlawry of war.

Symposiums Scheduled

Two symposiums follow, the first on November 8, in which religion and the arts will be contrasted, and the second ten days later, when a scientist and a minister will compare their separate fields.

Professor A. T. Davison '06, of the Music Department, Professor J. L. Lowes '03, of the English department, and G. H. Edgell '09 Professor of the Fine Arts department will present the first question, while K. F. Mather, Associate Professor of Physiography, and Dr. John Reach Stratton of the Calvary Baptist Church, New York City, will argue the second.

The Reverend Percy Stickney Grant '83, for over thirty years Rector of the Church of the Ascension in New York city, will address the gathering on the subject of "A New England Mistake" the second week in February. The exact night on which he will speak has not yet been determined.

Rabbi Wise to Speak

"Can we Have a Universal Religion?" is the question which will be argued from, the view point of Rabbi Stephen Wise of the Free Synagogue of New York City. Rabbi Wise is vice-president of the Free Religious Association of America, and for many years has commanded large audienes when discussing the possibilities for a single, all-embracing religion. He will appear in Cambridge on March 24.

Five other prominent men have consented to speak, but the Phillips Brooks House Association has not yet been able to arrange convenient dates for the lectures. Clarence Darrow, noted for his defense at the Scopes' trial two years ago, will enlighten the undergraduate body on the pros and cons of capital punishment for criminals.
