THE SOUL'S ASPIRATIONS.
Ono morning hut week in Omaha lecturer dis
4'Uidt'd th modern drama, reviewing- certain re
lently publishix. book and certain play that have
cen well received. .She found that, agreeable to
I)r, Ludwijr Lrwisohn's work,

Such a belief may comfort the individual who
is unwilling to take any responsibility for hia own
conduct; who want to be governed by hia whfma,
hia passions or hl appetite. It will not do for tha
one who la eerioua and courageous. The premise
that "w know there is no God" is an absurdity,
for we know there ii a God. Knowledge of God
rests on faith, not on a scientific fact nor a logical
conclusion. "Faith begins where reason sinks ex
hausted," ' wrote Albert Tike, half a century ago,
and Charles P. Stcinmetz has recently written simi
larly, substituting science for reason.
The though that rejects God and accepts a theory
of "conflicting complexes in lieu of the free will of
man is superficial, lacking depth and failing of con
viction. The profoundeiit of students, in all agoa
and among all races, are agreed on the great cen
tral point, that God does live. Some dispute as to
free will and other element! of dogma or doctrine
has always prevailed, and maybe always will, yet a
great mass of sound philosophical thought supports
the belief that liberty in man is the genesis of im
mortality, and that that liberty, is free will, under
which man works out his own salvation.
Flays that present to us "only the forces of man
struggling against the things aaround him" will fail,
because they do not rest on the only foundation
that endures. It is easy to hail
" man, the pilgrim of a day,
Spouse of the worm and brother of the cluy."
Such salutation answers none of man's aspira
tions. Let us turn to a statement by Albert J.
Beveridge, as good -a guide as Dr. Lewixohn or any
of the dramatists of today. Mr Beveridge says:
"If .1 wished to be' a lawyer, I would study the
' Bible, it I wlsh4 tO.be. a business man, I would
' study the tiible. If I wished to be an editor
above air If t wfshed to be a reporter or corre
spondent I would 'fcnidy. the Bible. If I wished,
' to be no more than a modern politician, clever, re
sourceful and adroit, I would etudy the Bible.

diction in terms,,,
; "if I were a laborer, with my hands, if I were
' a tiller of the soil, the Bible would be still more
essential to my et'ery mental, spiritual and even
physical need. For it teaches us to cant out envy
' and hatred, proclaims the nobility of toll and
declares that the only way upward Is through the
' Joy of superior achievement and the beatitude of
Utmost Intelligent effort."
THE I?EAL SANTA CLAUS.
A little boy in a western Nebraska town came
running home from school the other day, and be
tween sobs told his mother that teacher had just
told her pupils that "there isn't any Santa Claus."
"And there Is a Santa Claus, too; isn't there,
Of course that mother hastened to assure her
little son that there is a Santa Claus. And of course
the teacher deserves to be disciplined for trying
ruthlessly to destroy one of the most beautiful illu
sions of childhood. There is a Santa Claus a living,
breathing, loving Santa Claus who loves children
and delights in giving them pleasure. To little chil
dren he is a real personage; to folks grown up he is
the personification of tenderness and goodness. He
makes his home in the hearts of all men and women
not wholly given to selfishness and miserliness; and
his playground is in the hearts of innocent childhood.
He carries the master key that unlocks all doors so
that love and kindliness may enter in, and the radi
ance of his smile makes bright the most sordid
places. All he asks is opportunity to be your al
moner, to make it possible for you to share your
blessings with those less fortunate than yourself.
He is everywhere if men and women will but make
Santa Claus was born the very day that man
gave thought to the sorrows of his fellows. He will
live as long as there is an unselfish thought in the
world, despite the efforts of maudlin j-eformers to
bury him, '
REVIVE THE SMOKEHOUSE.
The present generation is too much given to
living "in fan or carton." The "smokehouse" so
familiar when the present generation of gray-haired
men and women were boys and girls is almost as
extinct as the dodo. Forty or fifty years ago the
family that did not butcher and eure hog or two
and "put down" a supply ef winter vegetable and
apples in cellar or cave, was deemed Improvident.

TIME FOR CHANCING CONGRESS.
The Constitution of the United States provides
that congress hall meet once each year, on the first
Monday In December, unless some other day is
designated by law. Sinct 1804 the constitution ha
designated March 4 as the time for the expiration
of tho presidential term and the commencement of
the new term.
Now, aa has happened several times In recent
yesrs, a move is being pressed to have the term for
which congress is chosen end soon after the general
election at which members are chosen. Reason for
this is that the election usually turns on issues
raised in connection with acts of congress, and an
adverse decision by the voters should be accepted
as ending the service of the lawmakers so repud
iated. Presumably the Hate for ending the presi
dential term should also be set forward. ,
Many good reasons ran be urged for making tho
chango. Chief among them is that a discredited
congress should give way at once to its successor.
Whether the country suffers materially or at all bo
cause of the delay is debatable, but the possibility is
present. New members of congress elected in No
vember, 1922, will not regularly convene until De
cember, 1923, or thirteen months after election. No
public interest can conceivably be harmed by short
ening this gap. If the incoming congress were to
meet within one month after election, its service
might be more notable.
For one thing, the change might lead to a desire
on part of the members to get their business finiohed
before election. Under existing conditions many
measures are purposely delayed as a course of ex
pediency, Harmful legislation could be sooner coun
teracted, and the government, at least so far as its
law making branch is concerned, would be more im
mediately responsive to the people, who finally are
the government of the United States.
That the term of the incumbents would be
shortened by three months, if the date is set for
terminating -the same in December following elec
tion, is a detail easily disponed of. In the case of
the president, an amendment to the constitution
will be needed, for the date is now set for inaugura
tion of the new president on March 4.
Casual examination of the plan suggests that it
has advantages that more than offset any inconveni
ence that might ari3C from making tho change,

HUMBLE BUT HIGHLY HONORABLE.
Several of our con temporaries are carrying as
front page item a dispatch from Parsons, Kan.,
which' reads: .
"All hough the flmt lady of the land in prospect,

"First lady of the state," forsooth," may be tho
governor's wife, but she shows her excellent taste
in holding on to the job of writing the neighbor
hood chronicles for the home-town weekly, Noth
ing could add to the importance of that position.
Humblest position, perhaps, in the army of journal
ism, yet honorable, and vital to the success of the
It is the country correspondent who tells when
Si Hoskins goes to town, or when his baby requires
the service of the doctor, or his daughter runs off
with tho hired man.:. AW, when Si's prize'.pig ig?ts
a blue ribbon'or his wife goes to a dance at the
schoolhouse; when anything happens or doesn't
happen, the neighborhood correspondent tells about
it. If it is sufficiently imposing, the local editor
takes it up, and, if beyond his power, the metro
politan reporter is called on the job, and, if the
event is of nation-wide scope, the Associated Press
sends pne of its impartials news writers to . takcj
care of events.
But it is the neighborhood correspondent who
first "plows up" the information, and gives the
impetus that moves the whole world of journalism.
"The first lady of the state" will never be more use
ful in Topeka than she was in gathering up the gos
sip and chat around her home section for the paper
she served as neighborhood correspondent at Parsons.
THE TOURIST'S CAMP.
The west has always been lauded for its hospi
tality, and Nebraska has proven that she deserves
her share of the praise in the well equipped tourist
camps, provided by the many flourishing towns
along her state highways.
There is nothing gladdens the heart of the trav
eler, looking for a site upon which to pitch his tent
and thus provide a lodging for the night, like the
big sign, "Welcome. Come Again," seen at all en
trances to these modern little villages. That home
sick feeling gradually disappears as he feels that

As he drives through the streets, he again real
izes tho kindly interest the inhabitants feel toward
the stranger, as hand after hand is raised in kindly
greeting. He enters a store and is waited on by
proprietor or clerk, with the same consideration
that is shown to a valued local customer.
This open-hearted manner of the people of a
city makes most of the transients feel that they
would be betraying a trust should they disregard the
request of the signs on all camp grounds to clean
camp site and extinguish all fires before leaving.
Just what the trouble in Salvation Army circlea
is the public has not been advised, but the Booth
family seems to b in disagreement over some point
of discipline. We hope that nothing happen to

the "soup, toap and salvation" program.
