A. O'Leary New President of M. C. Woman's Club' Mrs. Howard O'Leary was elec- ed president of the Mason City Roman's club, succeeding Mrs. :anford MacNider, at the March eneral meeting of the club Tues- ay afternoon at the First Meth- dist church. Mrs. MacNider was amed director and other officers ected include Mrs. H. E. Bast, ecording secretary, Mrs. Floyd phnson, financial secretary, and Irs. Francis Beck, corresponding eeretary. Dr. Henry C. Link addressed ic group on "The Return to Region," pointing out that the sub- ect is a tremendous one which annot well be understood except in terms of what has happened. Insignificant Dot ' Four centuries ago, Coper- icus, a Roman monk discovered hat man and his earth, instead of eing the center, are but an in- gnificant dot somewhere on the utskirts of the universe," he said, die Copernican revolution was IE beginning of man's emphasis n the physical world rather than n the spiritual world. The scient- ts said, in effect, .to the church hat 'you with your dogma are naking it difficult for scientific rogress. We leave to you the cus- ody of spiritual truth.and moral fe apart from natural science.' "In the 300 years since, there as been a tremendous develop- ent of natural sciences and all IE material consequences of lose discoveries made possible y this--the many physical com- orts which characterize our civili- ation. We have developed great nstitutions of education which larify and interpret this and vhere the scientific and intelleet- a! life is put down in great deal]. Moral Uncertainty The churches have been un- ble to develop personality and piritual truth. The disease of "vilization is overdevelopment of ntellectual aspects of life at the A-pense of the moral aspects. "Psychology has developed only n the last 25 years a study of per- onality and character. Fortunes re spent for telescopes for re- earch in the stars compared with rifles for research into personal- ty. The result is that it has taken us 400 years to arrive at a poinl vhere a scientist can describe man as the unknown. "While man charts^the heavens and cracks an atom, he has los he secrets of his own being. He defeats himself. As his infellect- lal horizon grows, his spiritua lorizon shrinks. He is believed to e a victim of his heredity. His Q determines his intelligence ipt his efforts. His phobias anc lis neuroses determine his health not his morals. I could wish tha he term 'inferiority complex' hac lever been invented. Then mil- ions Would never recognize tha they suffer from it. Doubles Fears "The term phobia doubles an ordinary fear. What ever we cal it, one thing we have lost sigh of--what man suffers for is his sins, either of omission or commission. His illnesses are the con sequence of the kind of life hi chooses to lead. Man has beconu- a scientific fatalist. We have toad the fatalism of the Calvinisti doctrine of predestination and the Stoic philosophy, but these often gave man a rendezvous with fati and brought forth courage. Thi present fatalism is not of thi !ype. We have a vocabulary of in- lellectual superstition and scientific fatalism." "Our educational system hai Decome the greatest plan ever de vised for obscuring the elements facts of life." Dr. Link pointed ou that while 193B brought the U. S Ihe lowest death rate in history out that while the death rate o body declined, the death rate o Ihe personality rose--evidencec by the-mental and emotional ills the growth in crime, the legaliza tion of gambling, the increase o divorce and the appalling increas of the gimmes--the urge to ge something for nothing.

Vhat the well to do parent does or his children, the entire nation emands of its government. I do iot condemn the new deal only, 'his has been the trend of government for the past 50 years and is as characteristic of democratic as republican party. "The attempt to get the abundant life for less an'd less we describe as : social justice. The gimme-gimme spirit has as its inevitable consequence a program of I-will-take. Now that we see he consequences in terms of dic- :atorships, our columnists and educators see the importance of the ·eturn to religion. We cry, 'Lord, lord, save us from a dictator. Save us from fascism and communism. Save our democracy.' Beginhintr--End "That is not the true return to religion. That is the way the people abjure responsibilities and put them in higher hands. It is the final and ultimate step from individual responsibility and individual .-morality. In a sense it is encouraging because they see divine and all knowing God more to be trusted than dictators. That is a beginning. If it stops there it is also an end. "In psychology we find encouraging signs in ways to solve these problems. We are rediscovering man and the potentialities of personality in harmony with the olc and new testaments. We are starting a.revolution similar to that of Copernicus which laid the foundations of a pessimism which has almost overwhelmed us while 'psychology's is hopeful." Iowa Outstanding: Dr. Link remarked on the important work being done by lowans and in Iowa in the field of psychology, mentioning Professor Seashore. Dr. George Gallup Dr. Stoddard and others. "Psychology's studies center around the concept of personality and personality is measured by the extent to which an individual has acquired habits and skills which interest and serve other people. This definition has religious implications. We are asked how personality can be measured. I does take many forms and many varieties, but we do not presume to measure the refinements of personality, but try to get what we might call a sea level of personality. We have a sea level in the de velopment of the habits of ttiL. mind, but we have no such concept of personality." Value of Bridge Dr. Link listed as contribution to the development of the personality the Y. M. and Y. W. C A.'s, the church, Sunday schoo: orchestra, competitive athletics an glee clubs with the-common de nominators of all bodily activity in association with other person and group activity carried on un der rules of some game in the spin of sportsmanship. Dr. Link spok of the value of bridge as a desirabl influence in developing personal! ty in that the player who watche his partners leads and return them is performing an act of tru Christian service. "There is a great difference be tween the mind and the personal; ty. The personality quotient meas ures what a person does abou things and people and there is n relation between intellectual an scholastic achievement and per sonality. Our great system of edu cation has no necessary impact o ersonality and does not .develop What Is Democracy? Dr. Link spoke of competitive thletics as' the activity of ado- escents contributing most to the evelopment of personality and ommented on the Olympic games a great program earned on vithout trouble, insult or re- rimination, asking where else uch could be found and certainly not in the field o£ religion. "We hear a good deal abou lemocracy, but we really don' cnpw what it means," 'Liberty and freedom he said are byproducts of (jemocracy. When a lation of people agree .among h'emselves and subordinate personal interests and passions ti he rules of the game--in thi case the constitution of the U. S. ve have democracy. We have seen hat concept being pushed relent .essly aside in the interest of om or other group. · ' Supreme Rules "-What is religion more than th relief inMod: It begins with tha relief, but there is also a suprem set of rules for the game of life What - are these" rules and wher are they?.' Christianity insists o : supreme emphasis on person ality. In Christianity men are no puppets of the state, but sons o God. The potentiality of the per sonality is the common denomi nator of the new testament. Citi zenship in a Kingdom more im portant than any temporal king iom is emphasized in the old tes lament. as well as the new, bu 3Ur civilization hardly recognize this. It" is a concept just begin ning to emerge. "There is no reconciliation be tween religion and communism o fascism in ,which the individua exists .for the state. There is n room for the church in Hussia art Germany. " Accepted Axioms "Democracy in so far'as it ca survive rests on these axioms. Ou educational system has develope a concept of liberalism whicf teaches that everyone should ex amine and decide whether or to accept these axioms. Individu als tend to interpret the 10 com mandments for themselves. In th physical sciences there are axiom which -no- one questions. No stu dent is asked to. consider an question the multiplication tabl "Jesus faced a time somewha similar to ours. He brought re ligion some new concepts, ne\ feelings and emotions. His religion I was democratic. It was a religion of service built on a concept o[ moral law. He emphasized the 10 commandments and interpreted them not more liberally, but more literally." Sea Level Concept In concluding his lecture, Dr. Link said that people are beginning to turn back to religion and that the great task before us is to arrive at a sea level concept of personality in terms of the 10 commandments which are not theoretic, but fundamentals of our democracy.
