HILLIS DECRIES AUTO RACE.

The New York Times
October 10, 1904

Plymouth Preacher Calls It as Foolish as a Bullfight.

In the course of his morning sermon in Plymouth Church, Brooklyn, yesterday, the Rev. Dr. Newell Dwight Hillis took occasion to express some severe views as to the international automobile race on Saturday.

"Men to-day are choking themselves with luxuries," said Dr. Hillis.  "Oh, the degredation of a scene within the past few days!  I shall not specify the sceneā€”as foolish as a bullfight, as vulgar as reddening the sands with gladiatorial combats, as revolting as bartering Christ's garment for a few pieces of silver.  This, too, in a generation when men should have no time left from ceaseless toil for libraries and homes and the pursuit of Jesus Christ and his laws of reformation."
