LONDON, Jan. 17.--A commission of the Church of England, reporting after a 15-year study ot church problems, asserted today that there was no clash between the story of creation as told in the Book of Genesis and the theory of the evolution of man as worked out by modern scientists. But as to the birth of Christ to" a Virgin, and as to the authenticity of Miracles, the commission divided. The Archbishop of York, second highest personage ol the church; two bishops and a number of other dignitaries were members ot the commission, named in 1922, by the Archbishop of Canterbury, spiritual head of the church, as a commission on Christian doctrine. Of the theory of evolution, the report said: "It is to be recognized that the Christian doctrine of evolution as generally stated leaves abundant room for a variety of theories as to the evolution of the world. There is in any case a sense in which, in the Chri:tian view, the creative activity of God must be regarded as continuous. "No objection to the theory o£ evolution can be drawn from the creation narratives in Genesis I and II, since It is generally agreed among educated Christians that these are mythological in origin and that their value for us is symbolic rather than historical." · As regards the Virgin birth the commission was divided. Some members held that full '^elii-J in the historical incarnation, the Divine origin of Christ, was "more consistent with the supposition that our Lord's birth took place under normal conditions of human creation." But the .Archbishop of .York said:,_ . , "I wholeheartedly accept as historical facts the birth ol our Lord of a Virgin mother and the resurrection of His physical body, from death and the tomb." Confessing division regarding miracle:!, the report said that the Church of England must still resist claims of the Papacy. Patronize those whij advertise.
