historical, cultural and religious
background has been founded in
the United States where women
have achieved the greatest measure
of social, political and economic
emancipation and freedom. The
founder of this institution, known
as the School for the Jewish Wo-

qualify them to supervise the re-

and eventually to place them on a

advantage of a rabbinical training.
This undertaking will be watched
with the greatest interest because

Three Great Nations
There had been three great na-
tions in the past, whose separate
! and momentous contributions to
knowledge were now visibly merg-
j ing in the English people, and
would most certainly shape the
destiny of evolution, at any rate
for the next few critical centuries
of human progress. These three na-
tions were the Jewish, the Greek
people, and the Roman people.
Through them the creative spirit in
evolution had revealed to mankind
that the way of progress is the way
of morality, science and law. The
Jew had made morality the power
of life, the Greek had made knowl-
edge the power of life, the Roman
had made law the power of life. To-
gether they had freed men from
animalism, from superstition and
from anarchy. Together they were
creating a new creature, the man
who would advance fearlessly but
with humility to the future of the
human race, obeying the moral law
in his heart, the written statutes ot
civilization, and Che impulse of his
questioning and searching mind to
penetrate the hidden secrets ol
nature.From Julius Levine. a

"I [ave We A Religious Fixation?"
Scripture Reading, Psalm XXVI.
in psychology we use the term "fixation" to denote a state ol arrest-
ed mental development. The dictionary defines the use ol the word
"fixation" in psychology as "the fact or state of one's attention or mem-
ory being fixed." I use the word "fix" in its prophert place as meaning "to
settle in place, to secure, to make fast" and not in Its colloquial u
implying "mending or repair."
When a child of lour or five Micks his thumb we speak ol it in
psychologj as a fixation, it Is a nursing-fixation. The child may have
been weaned but, mentally, the child has not progressed from the state
of nursing at ins mother's breast, similarly, some adult- display evidence

I a.-k. today, "Have we a religious tixation?" is It impossible that a
group, small or large, during the course oi the history of religions, has
retained religious impressions that were Infantile, In their way. and has
held fast to them, when, in the normal expansion ol religions and the
contemporary advancement ot civilization, these practices should have
been left behind a.- obsolete? Is It possible that we still have "thumb-
suckers" in religion? I must answer my question from personal observa-
tion and Bay, "Yes, we still have among the peoples ol the earth certain
groups whose mental development along religious lines has been arrested
and who tenaciously hold to practices that are psychopathologically
Then- was a period in the development of religion when God, the
Author of Good, was not worshipped; when the Devil was the recipient
oi all homage and the one to whom all prayers were directed. There are.
in this day. some rare tribes who still worship his Satanic Majesty. We
call them Devil-Worshippers. And. of course, we condemn them as pagans
and heathens We say that they are far beneath as in understanding and
intelligence. But. let us analyze the cults of the Devil-worshippers. I might
say. let US understand that period in the history of religions when we all
worshipped the Evil Power.
The reasoning was simple enough. God is good. He does you no harm.
He is kind and gentle. But. the Devil, he is evil. He lurks in ambush to
harm man. His wrath is constant and his lash continuously swings over
our heads. We must try to appease him. Our sacrifice sshould be brought
before him We must coax, cajole, and plead before him to turn his anger
from us. The thunderbolt is sent by him to strike fear into our hearts
and to burn down, through the accompanying lightning, our granaries
The Devil sends his messengers ol disease, famine, drought, and flood to
inflict pains upon us Shall we sit idly by and suffer? No!! We must
ingratiate ourselves to him. Hence, follows the ritual of worshipping a
wrathful and avenging Devil. In short, we pay Tiomage. to the Devil:we
pay ransom for our safety and wellbeing. That Is the cult of the Devil-
With the passing ol time, Man learned to understand his relation-
ship to Nature: Man turned from the concept of a Devil to the Faith in
a God of Love:to the Father of Mankind, loving and just, rather than
to the tyrannical Evil Spirit. Man emancipated himself from the fears
and superstitions which were so closely associated with Devil-worship.
Yes. but not all men There vva.- something appealing in the awe and fear
which held certain groups spellbound. Time went on. Progress was made.
But. these groups held last to their fixation. The Sadistic attributes of
the Devil; his joy in the suffering ol Man. was absorbed by his faithful
adherents and worshippers. They, too. found joy in inflicting pain on
others. If they wen ited in the image of God. and their god was the
Evil One. then, it follows logically that they must emulate his Sadistic
example. And. there they stand at tins day.with a religious fixation.
You see them about you a.- I do. They delight in the suffering of
those not ol their faith. To them it is a divine sign of displeasure. Tiny
creati mode ol torturing "unbelievers,"the adherents of other re-
ligions, They live not in tin- day. in the Twentieth Century, but in the
dark Middle Age.-, in their prayers to God. they constantly seek to ap-
peasi a wrathful and tyrannical deity There is no Adoration, no Thanks-
giving m their ritual. They are surcharged With venom and they
Religion is not to be blamed for such conduct. These group.- are not
normal. There ha.- been an arrested development. They sutler from a re-
ligious fixation You ask tor the remedy, the cure? Yes. there Is one.
Then .. Mi lison which permeates the very atmospheri
surrounding them, That remedy Is Love, Harmony, Peace, Education, It
requires patience but n Is an effective remedy. Those of us who worship
God must radiate the true spirit of God.Love towards our fellowmen
We must lill the world with love. The physical law that two objects can-
not occupy the same space holds good here. also. Love and hate cannot
abic place Good and Evil cannot jointly live in the same
heart, if either is to fill it.
You God-consciou- ones must spread the influence of God and good-
Faith to the end that it shall banish Evil. Hatred, and
Distrust, and replace them in eve inci We, who are socially-mind-
ed must, by the preponderance of our actions, eradicate all anti-social
cults and acts and must make tin.- earth a true haven of peace and 1>

In addition to all regular forms of life insurance, The Maccabees are now
issuing for the special benefit of the business man or the young man with
family responsibilities, having a small income and who needs more in-
surance, a Five and Ten Year Automatic low cost policy.
This policy takes care of your needs when you need it most, at a very low
cost. Without medical examination or certificate of good health, it auto-
matically converts into an Ordinary Life or Twenty Payment Life Policy
at the end of the low cost period. This enables you to begin your insurance
This policy can also be written with double indemnity, and with certain
features which will give you ten dollars per month, per thousand in case
of accident. The Maccabee's policies carry a safety clause which very few
organizations or companies carry. This is a clause thai prevents the com-
pany from going broke, and the state of Colorado has recently past a law
that all companies with Home Offices in Colorado, must carry this clause
in their policies.
