TUESDAY. SEPTEMBER 10, 1940 Minister Speaks To Rotary Club At Wood River plans Made for Golf Match with Alton Orjrani&ation WOOD RIVER, Sept. 10.—"We nil understand that things such as automobiles, lights and stores become obsolete, hut often we fail to urnleistand how ideals and mor- nl codes become obsolete," said the Rev. Oivillc F. Brummer, pastor „( st. .John's iSVnngelical Church, who spoke nt Monday's luncheon meeting of Wood River Rotary Club nl Whitelaw 'Hotel. Scholarship, he said, has made ronveiiliomil ideas about the Bible obsolete, and he illustrated this by introducing a recent book by Dr. H. K. Fosdick, "A Guide to the Undei'standing of the Bible". He showed that, the scholarship represented in that book began to appear in (he world about 100 years ago nnd reached wide acceptance in informed circles 50 years ago. Since that time that scholarship has made obsolete the older attitudes toward the Bible, he said. A chapter of the book, "The Idea of Man", was used by the speaker to Illustrate his talk, and an Interesting story he repeated was about a boy who walked along a picket fence with a stick and kept jabbing through the fence at a bulldog. The boy had a lot of fun walking along the fence and jabbing at the bulldog, until he came to a place in the fence where there were three pickets off. The Rev. Brummer applied this story to show how a great many people have been having a lot of fun in the last generation trying to live without the values of the Christian tradition and have now come to the place in the fence where there are a lot of pickets off. The quotation, "Bluebeard had a closet and his secret in that closet was his murdered wives, but modern man has a secret closet and the secret is that there is nothing in it", was used by the speaker to illustrate the emptiness of the average modern who has multiplied the means by which we live and has lost sight of the ends toward which we live. Dr. Leo H. Konzen was in charge of 1he program and introduced the Rev. Brummer. Richard Coffeen, chairman of the fellowship committee, reported that Sept. 18 has been selected as the date for a golf match with the Alton Rotary Club. Plans for the match, which will be played at Rock Spring Country Club in Alton, wove made at a meeting with Robert Colliding of the Alton club. M. M. Cleworth was a guest of Superintendent of Schools G. A. Smith at the meeting, and A. F. Brown, Alton Rotarian, was a visitor.
