The Americanized Bible pr I^NE ofthe most interesting events of the fall is the publi- t cation, by the University of Chicago press, of a new ^American translation" of the Bible. For years a group of scholars at the university has |rjced on a f plan to render the Bible in a.modern idiom, free l>al larchaic forms of speech. Now their-work- has been tnshed. It is an excellent job, and there are certain pas, . . . the 18th and 19th chapers of the gospel of tn, where Christ's trial before Pilate is described—that |ee on, a new clarity and a new interest. l' ? w ' ••' • ' • J^But in the main, one lays down this "Americainzed" pipe with a new feeling of admiration for the men who rndered the familiar King James version, centuries ago. j»¥y were absolute masters of English, and they dotted their irk;with, phases and sentences that cannot be improved on, iy more than "King Lear" could be improved by being ndered into Broadwayese. >...-..- j,/And-that is a point we too often forgetj -When/we count |p the great master-works of English "literature*we speak,of Shakespeare's plays, Milton's poems' and'so on—and forget |iat.the King Jaines Bible (either in the Authorized or Re- nsed Editions), considered .purely as literature,-is a'heritage hat can never lose its value as long as any men: anywhere ?nearth read and speak English. » K _ Consider, for example, the famous quotation from Paul's pistle to the Cdrinthians—"For now we see as though a lass, darkly." Something is lost when that becomes "For ow we are looking at a dim reaction in a mirror," even bough the meaning may become a. shade more clear. Nor does the line in Revelations—-"And I looked, and be|old a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, iijd HeD followed with him"—retain its original bite when it becomes "And ihere I saw a horse the color of ashes, and its rider's name was Death, and Hades followed him." Then there is the thunderous line, from Jude—"Wander- ling stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for- g$yer": its force ebbs out, somehow, when it reads, "Wander"' stars, doomed forever to utter darkness." The new version, to be sure, has been done skillfully anc jeverently. In the matter of clarity there is a distinct and j^aluable gain. But the mightiest lines of the old. version can|,not be improved upon. Rising From Obscurity iNEj.of our favorite traditions is the belief that only in the United States can the son of poor parents rise to the high' fist position in the land, The "log cabin to the White House" fl'Story fcas convinced us that this is true. Only America holds "(opportunity for the underdog, Tp a certain extent this is true. But there are more exceptions than we generally suppose; and a recent dispatch from Paris by an American newspaperman contains some information that is apt to be surprising, •,#4 Europe, this writer points out, is today very lirgely ruled men who came from the lower strata of the population. In England, of course, there is Ramsay MacDonald ,,?Ught up in the bleak poverty of a Scottish village, and J0W prime minsiter of the empire. Paralleling his case is $Jlftt of another famous English prime minister, Lloyd George, pho was a penniless orphan and who was reared by a shoer In France, Premier Laval was the son of a butcher. His was so poor that he had a hard time getting a decent flcation. Foreign Minister Briand, similarly, was the son 1$ exceedingly poor parents. Former Premier Herriot is an- who came from a poor family. Chancellor Heinrich Bruening of Germany did not come a proverty-stricken family, but his people belonged to lower middle class. In Czechoslovakia Thomas Masaryk *|s president, the son of a blacksmith; and another black- "gmjth's son who rose to power is none other than Benito Mussolini himself. Russia, of course, is ruled by men who came up from the depths, and has been ever since the revolution. This list is rather impressive. To be sure, it is probably perfectly true that opportunity is still greater on this side of • the Atlantic than in Europe. The son of poor parents has more chances. But it is quite obvious that the avenues to lajwe and riches are by no means closed to him on the other side of the ocean. Europe's so-called ruling class is by no means the closed corporation we generall suppose.

(Alfalfa Bill); Murray, Oklahoma's mustache^ governor, shooed Mrs. Pearl Mesta o'f Washington, active in republican politics, from the governor's office Tuesday. The chief -executive received Mrs. Mesta cordially, then pointed' to the door and told her: "Now get out' of here before I tyiss you." "I guess that will make them go," he chuckled, as she left. Mrs. Mesta, a daughter of W. B. Skirvin, Oklahoma City hotel owner, was seen frequently with Vice President Curtis in Washington society last winter. Rains Fail to Cause Ouachita River Flood ARKADELPHIA, Ark. — Although four and a half inches of rain has fallen since Thursday, the Ouachita river at this place has not flooded and Wednesday had fallen to 6.1 feet, from 10.5 which was' recorded Monday. Kemmc' and Carpenter dams and the lakes Catherine and Hamilton are holding back the water. A rise of the Caddo river, which' empties into the Ouachita four miles north of here, caused the sharp; rise to a stage of 10.5 feet Monday, but that has run out and the river is at the comparatively low stage of 6.1 feet here now. . Bad Luck HOUSTON, TeX.—To tWa-p«rions at least the number 13 will always be a bad omen. A man and a youth who had just completed their twelfth "job" of burglary, held up a filling station here just as a police cruiser was going by. Seeing them, the police leaped out and captured them.
