Signs of the Times

[Edgar William Garbisch, as quoted in the Literary Digest, New York, New York]

Religion has always been to me a tremendous subject. Years back it worried me, because I felt that it was something away from my life in general. It seemed a growth on the outside. I could not become interested, and I could not believe in it as a vital portion of life. And then I began to wonder and study, and read about the power of prayer. ... Presently, through prayer, religion became a real thing for me. It became a part of my actual life, which is the only way I can see that it is of real use. I have been very happy about it. Of course, during my early days on the West Point football team, I believed in prayer, and I never went into a game without praying myself. But it was not until this year that I felt that I had any right to sound out the rest of the team on the subject. As captain, I felt that I had a right to put some of my theories into practice.
