The Titanic catastrope so strongly religious in its effect, was the topic of sermons in most Chicago churches yesterday.  Many ministers drew lessons of warning, some of thankfulness, in the theme.

Collections were generally diverted to the mayor's fund for the relief of the survivors.  About $100 was subscribed for Nana Harper, 6 year old daughter of the Rev. John Harper, evangelist, who was saved from death while her father perished, at a union memorial service at the Belden Avenue Baptist church in the afternoon.
