Puritan Board Freshman

"Machen's first letter home about the incident confirmed the newspaper report. What the students wanted were more courses in English Bible and practical theology. Machen considered this compelling evidence of anti-intellectualism. The students "want to be pumped full of material which, without any reall assimilation or any intellectual work of any kind, they can pump out again upon their unfortunate congregations."
