Ilililor el' Aclanvrc In Ihi.' simple, direct words of our lesson, though the narrative is adorned with :-.yinlioliMii and vision, we have the .liny of the call of a great l-rophi-l lo hi.s bfe work. Perhaps it would lie found that the call nl every pi ophet comes in some form oKf a vision, either dreaming or v.'akim 1 ,. I'-aiah's vision evidentaly came- in the form of a dream. Jl was in the y:-ar that Kink Ux.xiab died, alter Ins lung and prosperous reign ol 52 years. In the dream, Isaiah :--a wlhe Lord siding upon a throne "lush and lifted up." The figure i. not very clear, for Isaiah .speaks of the seiaphim which stodd above the Lord. We do not know what .'•int of beings these six winged figures wen-. This is the only place in the Hihlc where the word ncur.s. While we may not understand the di-iaii: of the vi.sinn, its full effect i.s very plain. The seraphim cried "i"' imiii another, "llnly. holy, holy, i.-. .1,'hi'v.vi of hi.s glory." It was this nnpi ;'..-sii m ot holiness that was dominant m tin- mind of Isaiah .and tlial remained with him lo dominate his life alter the vi.-.ion hail disappeared. What is holiness'.'

He cried out, "Woe is me- I am undone, because I am a man of unclean lips," in much the same way in which another man, conscious of his lack and weakness and in deep humility, was to say, "Dpart from from me for I am a sinful man, O'Lord!. The Lord does not depart fromj men who approach Him in that spirit. Rather, it i.s they whom He chooses to he his servants and prophets. Tims it was that the lips of Isniah were touched with a coal, symbolizing the taking away of his iniquities and the forgiveness of his sins. In his vision he heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?" Isaiah's rcsjxm.se to the vision was prompt. "Here am I; send me." But what was most nocworlhy was not merely the response in (he vision, but the response in his life. He made Ihc dream a rcalily. It was the call of the man lo serve a people in a day when above all things Ihoy needed ,-i prophet to lend them from the fatness of their prosperity and the malcrialism of their sensual living back to the realities of spiritual life and health. H i.s at times when the prophet i.s most forgotten or neglected that he is most needed. Isaiah stands as [lie type of the true spiritual reformer leading a wayward nation back to the realities upon which its very life depends. Reformation JOPLIN.

He was himself again, businesslike, kindly, impersonal. Shocked and bewildered, Marian tried to uncover the motive behind his frankness. At last she arrived ot a comforting conclusion. No doubt G. F. had been merely lot- ting off steam. Quite possibly his wife had hinted that he was not so wonderful as he thought himself to be. Marian had served as the buffer for his affronted sensibilities more than once. When, shortly before lunch, Mr. Fellows asked her to choose a diamond bracelet for his wife, she chuckled to herself. So there had been trouble at home. She felt distinctly encouraged. C. i.-'. couldn't get along without her. It might be a canny move to let him try. Watching Sally Blake's bright head bent over her shorthand book, she decided against the experiment. No use slicking her neck out, as Dan would say. * * # AT 12:30 she took a cab to •"• Jaques and met a distraught, feverish-eyed Carma. They were taken to a small table in the corner. Carma nervously pulled off her gloves. "I think I'm going cra/y, Marian." "Oh, no, dear—of course, Pete's marriage was a shock—" "Pete belongs to inc." Carma's rouged lips were a thin line. "But, Carma—you could have had him—any time—" "Why didn't I take him?" She smiled bitterly. "I thought he'd always be (here—I couldn't marry him last year because f was buying my car—I couldn't marry him the year before because I had lo, have a mink coat. I've got the! car and the coat, but—" She! stopped, biting her lip. She was quietly hysterical. "Listen, Carma, be reasonable. You didn't want to pinch and scrimp—that's what it would have meant if you had married Pcto. When you see him and his wife struggling along on his salary, doing without everything they | wan*—" I '"qat's what I though!, when he \vrote me. He said he way- going to marry this Julie person" —her lips twisted over the ynv.-nc— "unless I quit right tlvjn and c:ar.i2 - home. I cabled him (o p.o aherd. B-but I—I didn't think he \voulil." "You've done the most sensible thing in the world. You have a swell job, opportunity for travel, money—" "But I want Pete. The years ahead—so long—so lonely." After a sketchy luncheon, they left the restaurant, two ultra- smarl, young business women. One costly dress covered heartbreak, the other a constantly nagging fear. Gallantly they smiled at parting. * * * A NOTHER side of the hectic pic- •'*- lure presented itself to Marian that afternoon when Florence A very, the switchboard girl, came to her desk. Florence was a shy, retiring girl. "Do you think I could have a small raise in salary, Mrs. Harkness?" she asked. Marian looked doubtful. "Is there any particular reason why you need more money." The girl blushed. "Ted, my husband, wants a car. He says a man can't get a job without a car." "Hasn't your husband a job?" "Oh, no, he hasn't worked since we were married." "Florence, that's too bad. It makes it hard for you." "I don't care whether he works or not," Florence replied with a touch of shy defiance. "It doesn't matter where the money comes from. We have lots of fun." She looked down, drawing a wistful breath. "I just thought—he hasn't seemed so happy lately—if I could get a car for him—on payments." Marian felt that the world had gone topsy-turvy, it was all wrong somehow. Hfcrsr-U, beset with anxiety; Carma, sick with grief because she had not been able to have her cake and eat it, too. And now little Florence, trying to hold bur husband's love by providing for him more lavishly. Three business women. After all, were the homcmakcrs to be envied? She thought of Dolly and Pete's Julie. She said harshly to the waiting Florence, "If your husband wants a car I'm afraid he'll have to buy it for himself." "Ycs'm." Florence turned away, her .small face shadowed. Marian thought: What's the matter with us? Has civilization gone into reverse? She sighed. Whether it had or not, there was r.o turning back. They musi, all go on, caught in the web of their own weaving. A.s for herself, she must find sonic way of circumventing Sally Blake. It should be simple. Sally v.-;:.s younger, yes, but other than that, her advantages were on the negative side. She had no background of experience, she was u.-ily fairly adept. Several times that day G. F. had laughingly corrected her. Laughingly—(hat was the catch. He had appeared to enjoy Sally's presence in the office. Marian set her chin. She'd hang on. The nagging dread again, the dread which did not concern Sally. What would she do if—? Instantly, she assured herself that the dread was absurd. She had managed her life for 12 years, forced the fates to smile upon it. It was most likely she could go on doing so. * * * AT the end of the afternoon she "^ was utterly exhausted, distracted with the swinging pendulum of her thoughts. When Dan called for her at the office, she raised haggard eyes, sure of his sympathetic understanding. "I'm so tired," she complained. "It's been a hectic day, Dan." She was on the verge of tears. If only Dan would take her in his arms, kiss away all her \vorries. She leaned toward him, only to have him turn abruptly away. "Thai's the way they come sometimes," he said. Anyway, it was nice riding home with Dan. Carefully removing her hat, she leaned her head against the cushion. Wearily, she closed her eyes. The events of the day marched before her, troublesome, vexing, disturbing. They were well out Sheridan before she found the strength to tell Dan of Carma's frantic regret. Dan did not exactly say that it served Carms right, but Marian received the impression that he thought so. He said, "Carma has kept Pete dangling for 10 years. Just because she must have nick- nacks, things that are here today and gone tomorrow, she has deprived Pete of a home and love— and children." Marian's unreliable tern pel- flared. "I hope you're not aiming at me over Carma's shoulder." "We have a home, haven't we? And love—haven't we?" Marian darted a glance at his strong, good-looking profile. Sarcasm again. What had come over Dan? Had he decided to strike back? Normally she would have tossed her head and laughed at the idea of Dan striking back. He was in no position to make terms. But she did not toss her head, sho was far from laughing. Almost timidly, she'touched his arm. "Dan—would you be glad if we had a baby?" "Lord, no," he exploded. "The poor little tad would have a typewriter for a mother and a spineless dud for a father. We'll just spare the coming generation that." Marian's hands closed into two tight fists. (To Be Continued) Today's Dances Pointtp a War? Arthur Murray Thinks They Are Like Those of About 1914- By The AP Features Service Now we know. It's the prewar jitters thai make the jitterbugs that way. And if they don't cut out the rug-cutting, it means war, just as it did 25 years ago. A couple of fellows told us so. One is Arthur Murray, headlincr in ballroom dance instruction. Listen to what Murray says about it: 'The present outburst of dance carze.s is exactly parrellel to a rash of jitterbugginfi that occurcd in Aemr- ica in 1913 and 1914. That was the period whei the Castle swon Prominence ^and America was clong the Turkey Trot. During my entire career, I have never witnessed such a tremendous desire on the part of the American people to get rid of nervous tension and frayed nerves by capering on the dance floor as I'm witnessing today." Then there's Frank Veloz, of the top-ranking hardwood team, Volez and Yolanda. Frank once wrote a whole essay to demonstrate that popular dancing is simply the expression of a people's national temperament. And sho. My Pet, you see where dances like these are leading us. • CHURCH NEWS BARRETT MEMORIAL BAPTIST Hollis A. I'urtle, Pastor Sunday School 9:45, Grady Hairston superintendent.
