Rev. Raines asked the congre
gation to offer a silent prayer
for the shut-ins, before he deliv
ered his message for the morning.
His srmon was taken from Isaiah
42:4. Theme: Is Christianity a
Failure? Everyone’s name on the
Church roll are not Christians. It
is often said that Christianity Ls
a failure. Christ said He shall not
fail nor be discouraged. Jesus
would never have suffered as he
did if Christianity was to be a
failure. Should peace come to the
world, it will have to come
through those who know Christ.
It is easy to understand why some
say Christianity is a failure. Of
all the weaknesses in Christianity
it is better to be one. What would
become of the world if Christian
ity was a failure? More men and
woman believe in Christ today
than ever before. There are some
people in th Church that believe
in Christ today than ever before.
There are some people ,in the
Church that believe in Christ.
God said through Jesus that be
fore his word fail, Heaven and
Earth will pass away. Christian
ity does pay and Christianity is
not a failure.
This message was delivered hy
Rev. Raines before, and it was
requeshted again. There is much
to gotten from this sermon.
Mrs. Bradley, wife of one of
our members, united with our
Church this morning. We are in
deed happy to have her become

Bring Christ to the Nations
ST. LOUIS, Mo—An appeal for
greater trust in God’s proidence
was issued today by the Rev. E.
T. Bernthal, Pastor of Epiphany
Lutheran Church, Detroit, Mich
igan, and summer guest speaker
on Bringing Christ to the Nations
the International Lutheran Hour.
Speaking over the Mutual
Broadcasting System and affilia
ted stations. Pastor Bernthal de
dared: “If there ever was a time
when all of us in the world need
ed faith in God’s providence, that
is today. What we need above all
today is to become a people of ‘
great faith, living lives of love,
complete self-giving, trusting al
ways in God’s providence. Having
such a trust in our own hearts,
it is ours to make America a
people of great faith. Only a
people of great faith can begin
to contemplate a just and durable
peace. If it is true that the Nazis
were unable to knock Christian
ity out of their people by force,
it is unlikely that Hitlerism or
atheistic Communism can be
driven out of Europe by people
of little or faith. It is impossible
to cast out devils by Beelzebub
now as it was in the time of
Commenting on current econ
omic plans, Pastor Bemthal con
tinued: “Would you like to see
in this starving world of ours
freedom front want? Let me tell
you that such freedom from want
shall depend far more on our
obedience and trust in God than
on sound economy. In fact, trust
in God's sound economy. You say
that it is impractical. It is no
more impractical than to say, as
Jesus saidit, ‘Seek ye first the
kingdom of God and its righteous
ness. and all these things shall
be added unto you.’’
Pastor Bernthal concluded: “If
America would meet her destiny
in the world, then let her catch
a vision of what can be for the
whole. Out of a world full of the
little dreams of men, private wish
ful dreams, the laborer with his
dreams, the employer with his
the underpriviliged classes with
their dreams, the privileged class
es with theirs—to each man his
dream—from a world full of the
vague, half-hearted dreams of a
world witheut war and a human
ity without hate, let us today in
His Holy Word catch a vision,
Which transcends them all for
daring and prity of motive, on
visioned for His Church by the
Lord Himself. Let us dedicate
ourselves once more to the pro
position that beyond and above
the kingdoms of the world, stands
the kingdom of our God, eternal,
unchanging, whose King is a
King wearing a crown of thorns,
whose scepter brooks |no chal
lenge, whose greatest law is a
law of love and who will supply
all of our needs according to His
riches in glory by Christ Jesus.’
Who doesn’t want to be happy?
While most of us do not realize it,
we are all trying to be happy and
seeking happiness in one pr a
nother form practically all of the
! time. » * W
Contentment is the maximum
that people can gain in life and
this depends more upon a correct
attitude toward life than upon an
abundance of possessions, which
are usually though to be indispen
sable to it.
Happiness is a most elusive
thing, really a will o’ the wisp.
It never comes when sought for
its own sake, directly, but always
as a by-product of some unselfish
act, some deed of kindness or of
Yet most folks go on chasing
this thing and that, spending val
uable—and irreplacable—time, and
thought, and mbney, in seeking
The more we live for and by
oursehies the more certain we
can be that we shall be unhappy.
I Som of the most miserable per
J sons to be seen are those with
most to live for. Sensible sugges
tions on how to overcome the
boredom of women, in a news
paper’ column, so often recom
j mended living more for others.

2 TO 5 MILLION JOBLESS ARE
PREDICTED IN SOUTH
MEMPHIS, TENN.—The sharp
grind of gears and the chug of
giant motors are replacing the
soft chant of sharecroppv* in
Dixie’s cotton fields. The South
is beginning to ask itself many
How far away is complete mech

years or 20?

the South lap up the overflow?

Congress Asked To Help
Mechanization definitely is mov
ing into the South—the last major
stronghold of manual farm labor.
Hands geared to pick and hoe
must find something el?e to do.
A special study group headed
by Dr. Frank J. Welch, dean of
the School of Agriculture at l^iss
issippi State, told a House sub
committee that two million farms
in he South would be thrown out
of work in 20 years.
The group urged Congress to
get busy and do something about
it—find jobs for those disposs
essed by machines, set up Federal
loan insurance for small business
es, put an end to “monopolistic
practices” in th South.
Others see a quicker and bigger
turnover. Thomas Linder, secre
tary of Agriculture for Alabama,
predicts five million land workers
will go on relief in five years.
Many agree with Mr. Linder.
They foresee early migration of
farm laborers to the industrial
ized North in wholesale numbers.

The Veteran Asks...
Q. Under what conditions is
a veteran entitled to out- pati
ent treatment from the Vet
A. A veteran whose disabili
ties are service-connected may
recieve out-patient medical, sur
gical and dental service for the

eran and have been sick for five
months. At the end of my six
. th month of total disability,
will I have to go on paying
my National Service Life In
surance premiums, or is a
waiver granted automatical
A. No automatic waiver of
premiums is ever granted. A vet
eran must be disabled for six
months before he may apply for
a waiver of premiums. You are
entitled to file a claim for refund
of those premiums you paid from
the date on which the waiver be
Q. I have been thinking of
converting my National Ser
vice Life Insurance term pol
icy to a 20-payment life policy
which ras a higher premium
rate. If I make the conversion
will I be required to pay the
difference in premiums for
all time I carried the term
A. No. When you convert to a
permanent policy, you will be re
quired to pay only the first pre
mium on the new policy. The pro

ly took out the term policy.
Q. Must a veteran put any
of his own money into a busi
ness, a home or a farm in
order to get a Veterans Ad
ministration loan guaranty ?
A. This is not a requirement
for guaranty. It is a matter that
the veteran settles with the lender.
The only bearing it has on the
guaranty of the loan is that in
the case of a farm or a business,
it may effect the likelihood of
the veteran’s success in the ven

of war entitled to refund of Na
tional Service Life Insurance pre
miums are those who were totally
disabled for six consecutive mon
ths or more. A refund of prem
iums paid during a period of six
months or more disability is
made after approval of an apli

tration, accompanied by proof of
disability. The refund in case of
disability applies equally to men

STILL HAUNTING PST^_<**By MACKENZIl j
ON THE AGRICULTURAL
Merchanized equipment that
meets the requirements of small
cotton farms is needed, said E. D.
White Assistant to the Secre
tary of Agriculture, in an address
recently before the Cotton Con
gress in Dallas, Texas.
Emphasizing the need for
gearing more farm machinery to
the needs of small cotton farmers,
White pointed out that over half
our cotton acreage is worked by
farmers who produce less than 10
bales of cotton.
Continuing, he added, “While
mechanization is advancing and
gives promise, some phrases of it
are lagging. More tired hands
should be taken off hoe handles
and more pick sacks should be
be taken off aching backs. We
must move in this direction.”
Pointing out that more mech
anization is needed throughout all
stages of cotton production in oi^>
der to enable American cotton to
compete more effectively with
foreign grown cotton and domes,
tic synthetie fibers, the Assistant
to Secretary Anderson said that
consumption of rayon is now
equivalent to more than two mil
lion bales of cotton annually.
Consumption of other syuthetic
fibers, he said, is rapidly increas
ing. Since 1940, the consumption
of nylon, vinyon, aralac, saran.
and spun glass has increased
from 4 hi million pounds—the equi
valent of 10,000 bales of cottan
to 53 million pounds, or the equi
valent of nearly 120,000 bales of
