Rev. S. D. McConnell, D. D., of Philadelphia,
delivered the baccalaureate sermon before the Sen
ior class Sunday morning. The chapel was crowd -
ed with friends of the college and graduates.
When the Seniors appeared in caps and gowns,
the lower classes rose and remained standing
until ’92 was seated.
The text was part of the nineteenth verse of the
Twentieth chapter of St. Luke; “And the chief
of Priests and the Scribes the same hour sought to
lay hands on him but they feared the people.”
He said that the priest corresponded to those
who had massed great wealth while the scribes
were those of great learning. The theme of his
discourse was the perils which education creates
in one’s religion,—perils which are real. Thence
he proceeded to show how these perils come to
exist, how each item of knowledge gained requires
a recrystallNation of all knowledge previously ac
quired, and finally gave reasons for believing that
the religion of the world remains unharmed. He
advised those who met the doubts and dangers
which learning brings not to resort to the reading
of the debates of the so called champions of re
ligion and reconcilers of science and religion, but
to find refuge in Christianity itself. Throughout
his remarks he dwelt upon the great and rapid
progress in the diffusion of knowledge as the
characteristic of this century. “In this, the nine
teenth century,” said he, “there are but two
classes, all men are believers either in Christianity
or atheism.” Throughout the sermon was forci
ble, suitable, and full of thought.
The Junior Oratorical contest took place Mon
day evening, June 13th. The chapel was crowded
