1917 Figure Charles Zueblin of Boston Publicist, Lecturer, Author. CHARLES ZUEBLIN is a free lance of democracy. Having been graduated from classical and theological courses at American universities; having studied social philosophy and social movements in European universities and cities; and having served his novitiate as a social settlement worker in Chicago, he became a university teacher. During sixteen years at the University of Chicago as a member of the University Extension staff his labors were chiefly those of a social and civic evangelist beyond the university walls. As his experience widened, his democratic faith matured and he responded to the call of the larger parish and became an independent lecturer on democracy. To him democracy is not a form of government, but a faith and a life—the life of all by the coöperation of all for the welfare of all. When he had attained his majority as an itinerant lecturer in 1913 he had traveled over half a million miles expounding the gospel of democracy. Sometimes the message is given in educational courses to universities and teachers' institutes; sometimes in addresses to religious or labor organizations, chambers of commerce or civic leagues; sometimes in courses of lectures on city or national affairs and lectures on democracy in literature and life to potential citizens in women's clubs; sometimes in civic revivals reaching whole communities. The last two decades have witnessed the greatest advance in popular government America has known and the greatest expansion of democratic faith the world has known. To quicken this cosmic faith and to quicken those practical steps is the aim of Charles Zueblin. SINGLE LECTURES Education for Freedom. Evolution and Revolution. Militancy and Morals.

Telephone, Haymarket 4278 BOOKS BY CHARLES ZUEBLIN DEMOCRACY AND THE OVERMAN, by Charles Zueblin, is a book to make editorial writers sit up and take notice. The author appears to be right more often than wrong, and that's what's the trouble. He arraigns the 'overestimated Anglo-Saxon' and he roasts the 'overstrenuous American' in a way that gets under the skin. The former prosecution is the more interesting. Professor Zueblin calls history to the witness stand, and a jury of readers is moved to decide that accident and accident alone has created 'the Anglo-Saxon myth.' The Irish will be glad to hear this, and so will the Latin nations. It remains for some yet unchosen counsel for the defense to restore our complacency. Seriously, this is an important book, and so lucidly and wittily written that it will appeal to a wide circle of readers.— Cleveland Plain Dealer. THE RELIGION OF A DEMOCRAT, by Charles Zueblin, is a frank and courageous discussion of the demands made upon religion, by the spirit of true democracy. Regarding religion as 'the expression of man's relation to the infinite and ultimate,' the author scrutinizes fearlessly present-day methods for satisfying this great human want. Whether the Church can answer man's religious need in attaining the unity of life, or whether the State can best fulfil this task of democratizing all human wants, is discussed with freedom and spirit. Life is a unit, of which religion is one expression, and democratic religion, as set forth in the closing chapter on Impersonal Immortality, is a religion not of creed or dogma but of personality, expressed in the fellowship of human service.
