Figure DR. SHAILER MATHEWS of the University of Chicago Lectures on Timely Topics Redpath DR. SHAILER MATHEWS Rising Generation amd Moral Dr. Shailer Mathews, editor and educator, has been secured to fill a limited number of lecture engagements under Redpath management. Dr. Mathews has had a splendid opportunity to study international affairs at first hand. He has made a special study of the French Revolution and has been interested in social problems of many kinds. In his lecture, The American Spirit in Action, he points out the share which America has had in the formation of the modern world both in the shaping of democracy and the building up of a new type of international relations. He endeavors to point out that America has discovered a method of adjusting difficulties and that, by history and practice, this nation stands in no need of fear of Russian socialism. In his lecture, The United States and the Orient, he gives in an interesting way the actual history of the United States and the Orient. He points out how different the American policy has been from that of other nations and also calls attention to some of the difficulties which, to some extent, are developing even now. Dr. Mathews is Dean of the Divinity School of the University of Chicago. From Who's Who In America Mathews, Shailer, educator, editor; b. at Portland, Me., May 26, 1863; s.
