MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE. JANUARY 29 1936 THREE L i t e r a t u r e Department Hears Talks Mrs. Hathorn and A. S. Carlson Speakers at Hotel Hanford. Mrs. W. H. Hathorn, recording secretary of the Iowa Federation of Women's clubs, and the Rev. A. S. Carlson, pastor of the First Congregational church, were the speakers at the Woman's club literature department Wednesday afternoon. Mrs. Hathorn, reviewing Harold Nicholson's Life of Dwight Morrow, said that the author called Morrow, "'the most civilized man the world has known." Mrs. Hathorn recommended the book for reading, saying that it pictures the reverse of what we are reading in the newspapers about big business and the men involved in it. Lite of Morrow. Giving the life of Morrow and his background, Mrs. Hathorn said that his father was a school teacher and his mother had been a nurse. He was graduated from high school at 34, the valedictorian of his class, and from Amherst college where Calvin Coolidge was among his classmates. Upon graduation from Amherst he spent a Short time in his brother-in-law's office, before deciding 1 upon the law as a career. He went to Columbia's law college, graduating in 1S99 and entered a firm of corporation lawyers. He became very successful and planned to retire when he had $100,000 and go to teaching school. He was persuaded to enter the house of Morgan and the war offered-him the arena of his greatest activity. He was sent to Mexico to represent the United States and completely won the Mexican people, opening the way for co-operation between the two countries by his special ability for establishing a common meeting ground for divergent interests. End Came too Soon. Returning to the United States, he became senator from New Jersey and it was shortly after his election that his death came. Mrs. Hathorn spoke of Morrow as a man characterized by a charming personality, broadmindednes-s, the ability to see both sides of a question and great erudition. He was an international figure and his story ended too soon, she said. Mr. Carlson spoke on "The Church, Catholic and Protestant" and "The Church Against the World." The first book by William Adams Brown, an elderly professor .of theology at Union seminary in .New York, is written with the cath- "olicity of spirit, the broad sympathy . and wide interests which characterize the author, he said. Its purpose . is to outline what possibilities there are for a closer working agreement between Catholics. and Protestants and to establish elements that make for a better understanding. Approach to Piety. The author feels that there are three definitions of Catholicity and Protestantism which are parallel and he confines his argument? to the one of piety. Things pointing to the possibility of a closer union he indicates to be the Bible, the creed, the hymns, the prayers, the sacraments and the ministry. He points out that the real problem is of Catholic and Protestant working- together against the foe, a secularism and irreligion. He feels that a federation of churches is pos. sible. "The Church Against the World" is made up of three essays by three young men representing the new movement in theology. The three represent a common point of view in recognizing a foe which calls for united work by the leaders and the laity. j Betrays Its Mission. The question is raised whether the church should engage in every worthwhile philanthropic enterprise to become, after all, faithless to its main job and betrays its real mission. The authors feel that the conception of God as a transcendent j-eality is the solution upon which problems of the church hang.
