So pronounced Dr. Christopher M. Chavasso, Bishop of Rochester, who is alarmed that England is becoming a “pagan land.” “The latest estimate,” he said, “is that only 10 per cent of the nation are sincerely attached to institutional Christianity of whatever kind.” Wonder what he’d think if he came back to earth today! In any case, it is a relief to pick up the Sunday paper today and see upbeat news. More Japanese warships have been sunk and the Russians are closing in on the Germans in Kharkov. China must be kept in the war, says Admiral Ernest J. King, because it is fighting Japan for us the same way the Russians are fighting the Germans. But what’s this about possible martial law declared in Germany? What would the changes in Germany portend? But it’s Sunday so read the latest installment of “The Teenie Weenies,” William Donahey’s comic strip, and play with the cut out.
