Friday, September 17, HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS PAGETHRE* The Story of the Constitution — 16V — fNCOME TAX AMENDMENT Text by Willis Thornton •Illustrations by Ed Gunder Amendments Alter "Rich Men's Club," Bring Prohibtion |||Again it was 40 years before an amendment was E||| made. _ During all lhat time there was intermittent H^ campaigning for an income lax, but the Constitu- fcflion provided federal taxes might be levied only in proportion to population. But in 1913 the 16th Amendment was passed, giving power to levy taxes "without apportionment among the several slates, Mid without regard to any census or enumeration." Senators had always been elected by the stale legislatures, thus removing their choice one degree from popular mandate. For years there had been mount* ing indignation against the Senate as a "rich man's club," and bribery and connivery in legislatures was widespread and notorious. In 1911 an amendment was submitted providing direct election of senators by the people. ' • THE DIRECT ELECTION OPU.S. SENATORS. PROHIBITION AMENDMENT This, the 17th Amendment, became part of the Constitution in 1913 as Wopdrow Wilson's administration was inaugurating "the New Freedom. It further democratised the system of representative government, and vindicated a demand that had grown stronger over a period of more than 20 years. The Senate had five tirnes rejected this proposal after passage by the House. Crowning many decades of agitation against liquor, the 18th or Prohibition Amendment was adopted in 1918. The World War with/its restrictions and regulations provided the impetus needed to make into law a reform that had been most earnestly sought. It prohibited "the sale, manufacture and transportation of intoxicating liquor for beverage purposes."

SATURDAY Just one hundred and fifty years since the Constitution of the United States was adopted, as the basic or fundamental law of the Republic. It is a precise, formal written document; there is no national power superior to it; its foundations were so broadly laid as to provide for the expansion of national life. The news commentator, Edwin C. Hill says, "It is the noblest Charter of Human Liberties ever conceived by man." 'We the people of the United States, n order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tran- quillity, provide for the common de- ense, promote the general welfare, and :ecure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain •md establish this Constitution for the Jnited States of America." etc.-etc.- etc. . . . We hold that once every year at least every American should read the Constitution; if you have read it, read t again and renew your pledge to stand by America for good or evil, hrough gain or pain, for she is your country.

A very delightful and beautifully planned tea of this week-end was the gift shower by Mrs. J. O. Milam given Thursday afternoon as special compliment to Mrs. Garrett Story Jr., an early summer bride. The attractive Milam home on S. Pine street was aglow with lovely summer flowers, the reception room reflected a pink and green color combination as the guests were greeted by Miss Eva Jean Milam, who made a charming picture in her floor length afternoon costume. Mrs. J. C. Carlton presented the guests lo the receiving line, which included Mrs. Milam, Mrs. Garrett Story, Jr., Mrs. Ray Allen, Mrs. Story Sr., Miss -larriet Story and Mrs. B. F.

Assisting in the dining room courtesies were Miss Mamie Briant, Miss Mary Louise Keith, Miss Frances Holt, Miss Frances Snyder and Miss Regina Bayse. About 50 guests called during the atfernoon. A very charming feature of the afternoon's pleasure was a view of the lovely flower garden and fish pond situated just East of the house. So many lovely flowers with a setting of graceful and luxuriant shrubs, the combination making a very pleasin,g and restful spot. exactly the same consequences. Wrong and evil courses in modern America are just as sure to curse American society as they were in the life of an ancient people, while the tuning of our hearts and minds to right principles and sound conduct will bring us blessing that ever fell upon any people devoting themselves heart and soul to truth and right. Sound laws and obedience to them, the setting of the welfare of all against the welfare of the few, regard for justice that may be done to the lowliest person in society, consideration for the weakest and most in need, the use of God's bounty to supply the widest and deepest human needs—those are the things that bring blessing in the life of a people. These arc the things that are associated with a proper recognition of God and a manifestation of his goodness. How can one teach and proclaim these things so that they will take deeper hold of our life today and turn the hearts of our people from selfishness and inconsiderateness to devote themselves more truly to the seeking of God's blessing on our national life? A nation's choice has its roots.in the choices of individuals, yet individuals are influenced by the whole attitude of the society in which they live. Sound choices are inextricably associated with right ideas and ideals. U. S. Beer Captures Award in Europe Fox Beer Given First Prize at Exposition in Brussels, Belgium Once again the U. S.

Editor of Advance Choices In a Nation's Life Text: Deuteronomy 11:8-12, 26-32 The teachings of this lesson on choices and their consequences in a nation's life are set forth very clearly and simply. The children of Israel wore facing the prospect of entrance into the promised land. It offered thorn the opportunity of a land flowing with milk and honey; it was a land of hills and valleys, with fruitful fields watered by the rain of heaven. But the children of Isragl were facing this land with its opportunity with two cleur choices before them, and with the alternative plainly stated of blessing or of curse. If they gave themselves to the commandments of God and other observances of right principles, there was before them the prospect of blessing; if they turned from tlic.sc commandments to selfish and evil ways, if they established corrupt worship in place of truth and right, there was for them only a cursg, rather than a blessing. It turned out in the history of Israel exactly as these prophetic words fore- tolil. Ruin and destruction came upon tile people when they forgot God, and turned to their own selfish and evil ways. Yet, in exile and in adversity, when lily people really turned to God. -A glory shout- upon the nation even in its seeming defeat. These things have not changed.
