After this entry, Carl gives his overall impression of the conference and of the people he encountered there, very finely graded from outstanding to splendid: There have been very few outstanding men at this conference. There has been such a wealth of splendid men that it is hard to pick but a few of the best."
Then Carl reports on the clear impressions he has gotten from the conference:
- "the truly remarkable fellowship among the delegates from all over the world ...it has been an education for a narrow, provincial middle westerner like myself to find what splendid men may be hidden behind different labels of nationality."
- "the student world is absolutely wide awake" - truthful, searching, critical and open-minded.
- "we have not ... tried to live our Christianity ... Maybe Christ didn't mean it when he said that we should live entirely by the law of love, but I believe that the experiment is going to be tried..."
Carl concludes his reflection by relating the depth of his Christian feeling, strengthened from recent experience: "Have we a Christ who is worth proclaiming? That question can never bother me again."
