Title

Article "Dr. Boatwright Addresses Baptists"

Description

This article debriefs students on the speech President Boatwright had given at a baptist convention in Atlanta. In it, the author explains the ways President Boatwright spoke out against Nazism, saying it "disrupts the racial and religious issues of nations." The focus then shifts to an emphasis on obligations of religious colleges to teach their students what types of humans to be, to have teachers who set an example of Christianity, and who do well in whatever they attempt. The article did not reference any comments President Boatwright may have made about the disruption of the nation's racial issues, but he did explain that the government should not have control over education, and that the new world would focus on being Christian.
