WILL DISCUSS RELIGION AND SCIENCE AT P. B. H. SYMPOSIUM

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

A recrudescence of the fundamentalist-modernist controversy will take place at the second Symposium, scheduled by the Phillips Brooks House for Thursday evening.

Dr. John Roach Straton, a leading fundamentalist from the Calvary Baptist Church of New York City will exchange opinions about the origin of man with Professor K. F. Mather of the University Department of Physiography. The subject of the Symposium is "Science and Religion", a topic of recurrent interest since the Dayton trial two summers ago.

Professor Mather has been recognized as a foremost modernist since his appearance in the Scopes trial: Dr. Straton, his opponent on Thursday evening, has attracted no less attention by his vigorous defense from his New York pulpit of the disputed Biblical passages.
