Collier, Sunday School Lesson 6y WILLIAM 6fLR6Y, 5 v ifl. H thei-e be a Sunday th'at maHts We ydaFs crowning glory, It has always seemed to hie to be the Sun dfty that falls between Christmas and New Years. This, too, seems one happy aspect of, the great historic error, of uncertainty, but for which dhristfflis would be New Years, both falling on the same day. We date our years from the birth of Christ — B. C. But we celebrate the birth of Christ a week earlier than the beginning of the year from which we date His birth. I have often reflected upon these errors, sometimes of great historic significance, sometimes of little •'' importance, which Upset all notions of formal exactness, but Which have little or no bearing upon the essential worths values, facts and truth. the Visitor to Boston, who goes to Charlestown to see the monument to the famous Battle of Bunker's Hill, may be shocked to discover that the battle wasn't fought on'that hill at all, but on Breed's .Hill, which the fortifying officer .had fortified by mistake, thinking it was Bunker's Hill.. What of, it? The important thing was • the battle that was fought there. • In my,home town of Mount Forest,; Ontario, there was a long, wonderful coasting hill that we boys'called the "Maitland" after the. river that ran in the valley. The -settlers who named the river were wrong, as it turned out to be a .branch of the "Saugeen." But to us it was always the "Maitland." What matter? The real thing was that it was a wonderful coasting hill. Such, errors, with their unimportance as to essential facts, have seemed to me to have a direct bearing upon many matters relat- irig to the Bible, as well as upon the matter of the different dates for Christmas and New Years. The uncertainties concerning the Bible are many. We do not have the original manuscripts ' of the books as they were written. Jn some instance, as even in the Epistle to the Hebrews, authorship is uncertain. All manner of these, minor questions have greatly, exercised scholars. But it. h'as been said, I think w|th truth, that we can be more Sure'about the exact text of the Bible than we can be about the exact text of the plays of Shakespeare. . What impresses me about the Bible is its profound certainty in all that pertains to life, here and hereafter, It is the supreme guide to character and conduct, to moral greatness and spiritual strength: and in its 'Christmas story of the life, death and/Resurrection of Jesus Christ its v climax is in the Gospel that offers all that man could hope for. So, to me, ; the Sunday between Christmas and New Years emphasizes all that divine heritage, man's greatest strength and inspiration as - he enters upon a new year. What. could so ennoble that year, and man, as to bring into it all the heritage of Christ mas? •' ' •• ' - Most Appropriate Gift BIBLES Stories of the<Bi|?le in "BIBLE STORIES FOR CHILDREN" John S.

Marriage, however seems to be rather far in the future. My fiance, is the sole Support of his mother and a younger brother. . . ; His mother has grown so dependent on him, both financially and emotionally, that she becomes hysterical whenever he mentions md- trimony. Consequently he always shies away from the subject. The uncertainty is -making me so nervous, that I have become somewhat responsive to the attentions of an- "* other man on ein the office where I work. He has voiced regret that I am already engaged. He professes love for 'me wishes I could marry him. So my problem is, should I j continue waiting f or. my fiance to reach a marriageable status, or should I break the engagement and marry the other man? I don't love the other one, but he offers security. MABEL F. Serious Complications Boyle Continued from fage One cold water flat to try it out.

"Anybody in America can. , go down to his home town post office and pick up and take core of a few letters to Santa Claus. The postal officials will be nlr.d to help you." Broun, who says his' business V.ICCT began to dry up after he started worrying about how to help children now takes five weeks a ye?r off from his advertising firm foi the Christmas project. He says it is worthwhile. .He and his wits are childless. "You know if a child writes an unanswered letter ot SantS Claus two years in a row, he. is likely to lose his religion" said Broun.

'Answer: convenience' While are "marriages of frowned upon Births in Hempstead last month: White in this romatic age it would certainly be foolish to assert that they never turn out happily. Marriages born of mutual love are naturally more apt to be successful, but would be equally foolish to say that they, as every one knows do not have their failures.

Your fiance ,quite probably won't be free while his mother lives, as he has established the pattern of submitting to her tantrums. Her health doesn't permit working, so you would undoubtedly ha^ve to share your home with her, if your fiance could 'bring himself to marry aga.inst her wishes. . These are serious complications that require much thought and discussion. As for the "other man" what has he to offer besides security? That alone. If he has qualities that have your -respect and admiration now, there's more than an even chance that he could win your love. One thing is definite and certain: if you continue to stay in love with your fiance, don't consider marriage to someone else. On. your part, there would always be regrets and comparisons. As you gave no details as to the character of either man, it would -be presumptuous indeed to hazard which would make the better husband. That you mus,t judge for yourself. As a brief summation however, I might suggest, (1) that as long as your heart belongs to one man marriage to another would be most unwise, and (2) marriage for material reasons will require an extra measure of co-operative ad. justment from you, which sometim? es will be quite difficult as you will lack the strong support of love for you mate. For the present, why not give your fiance a chance to fortify his position. Since your engagement: is of short duration, he is entitled to time for a thorough overhauling of his problems.

Tragedy Hits, Housewife Changes Life By BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD tf) Mrs. Agnes Goetz spent last Christmas in Frankfurt, Germany. She'll probably be in Casasblanca this; year. She covers a lot of groynd for a woman who spent most of her adult years as a housewife. Three years ago she was a con tented home maker in Dayton, Ohio. Then tragedy struck. Her mother died. Two weeks later her newly married daughter, 19 was struck by bulbar polio. Within five days she was dead. It was a rugged blow to lose lier mother and her only child within such a brief period. Her life aeeroed to lose its purpose. Her husband is Col. Joseph Goetz Air Force officer in charge rf supplying entertainment for all the services. He brought hr-r to Hollywood, whore he was arranging a star junket: to entertain troops ir. Alaska and to premiere "W"r1d In His Arms."

"At first I didn't think much ol the idea. But then I thought might be good for me. I realized that I had been shunning the company of young people ever since my daughter died I guess it was a subconscious .thing so . I :wouldn r ! remember and be hurt again." She decided to go 'along; The girls Ann Blyth, Lori "Nelson Joyce Holden and others were .11 her daughter's age and she en joyed being with them.

When they reached the tree to which the first barge lines had been snubbed they were perhaps 75 feet from Amador's Flern.

Foolishly Jamison had allowed those barges to remain between the two steamboats. But success depended chiefly o» \thcther they could hack loose was tssing them into Jamison's Pit. After cons irlerable moving around in the pit Maddix finally L'egan cawling up the bank. He was pressing one hand frantically to his eyes and the sv.-ift thought struck Crotch that one of the firecrackers had exploded directly in front of his face. A heavy blast of powder and dirt in the eyes might well disturb a man, might even destroy his vision. Jamison tried to pull Maddix back into the pit but simply succeeded in himself being drawn into the clear as the other captain fought him violently. Both men had lost their guns in the gully and they were now dependent on their Amador crew for support. "Wnit, Ciot ch! We can make »ome arrangement. The barges" Crotch's balled fist drove the "rest bark between his teeth. He chopped in again with a blow arid the man before him teetered uncertainly on his feet, fell backward into the gully. Now Goss was at bis side, driving Maddix back. But Maddix was a game slugging fighter when aroused. Blinded as he was by ex ploriing powder, fte still put w; heroic resistance. It waa some mp- jnents before Goss knocked him into the pit beside Jamison, Then they leaped in and turned botn me on their faces,' lacing their arms with Ihejr own belts. W. f/l. U.
