IOWA CANNIN^ COMPANY Religion in Rnssia There are many reports these days that Riibsia is becoming more tolerant of religion, that there is i revival of religious fcclinp there It is, of course, difficult to stale whether or not such particular stones arc true, but there seems to be some evidence that the Itus ·Jian people themselves, regardless of the attitude of their Ko\orn , have never completely los,, heir religious feeling As the history of the past dec adc shows, the Russian cornmunis i ic government has made three di ect, intense, bitter attacks on re I ifrion--in 1922 and 1923, in 19t'jl to 1930, and in 1937 to mB The-t I were the direct persecutions, t h e ' hiifh peaks, as it were, in the co" tmumtr swell of persecution In between those years the per^cu tions were lesser, they A*crc not puihcd, for whatever the rca un may have been Because of Ino- recumng high peaks of mt reli ei ous pressure, it is difficult I bay whether the present pha- ja a permanent toning down o the athciitic attack on religion or whether it is merely nno'lier valley between the peaks of per cecution It seems definite that ccrl,u concessions have been made to re lligon A writer in an Engln magazine about a year jgo citc these improvements Restoration of civil nghts the clergy, suppression of blasphemojs plajs and films abolition of the teat for the army and civil service which penalizec members of the church, rclaxat on if the labor law$ to enable the aithful in country districts to ceep the great festivals (thi- nay ave been brought on by the fa"t hat two.thirds of the country opulahon 13 not atheistic, b j t be. eves in God ) Other concessions have been uapension of the vast publishing ndertaJang of the Codies* union, ·ermission to the Polish regiments o have the services of Catholic haplains, the legalization of the manufacture and tbe sale of ob ects connected with religion, hnatlanity 19 DOW admit led to ave played a part in the early tages of Russian civilization On the opposite side of the lt-dg_ r an these facts, atheism oeems till to be the official doctrine f the SoTKt State.
