"To help them we must do at least three things. We must recast Ihc tax structure so as not to penalize, 1 them for cxpnncllne.

Recent, figures show that, 5,000,000 women are engaged In industry and professions, Pinkcrton said. The lasi census in 1D31 revealed Hint 3SO,,'(f)fl women were working professionally as against a!iO,72l/ men. Pinkcrlon said this condition Is responsible, at least in part, for the nation's declining blrlh rate, and pointed lo assertions liiai Eiielnnd'.s population in 100 years will lie only 5,000,000. "Replace women by men and Ihe result will be lhat thousands more marriages will take place, and tlicie will be an increase In the Wrth rate," h« said. Under Hie league's program, men who would gel the jobs women are holding iinil feel secure In them would be nble lo lake on Ihc responsibility of marriage and a home and the result would be n tremendous boom to employment, manufacturing and trade because of the thousands of new homes which would be built for the new- lywetls. The job Insecurity which men now feel, Pinkerlon sold, Ls responsible for England having "so many spinsters." "They (Ihe spinsters) enn't have their cuke ami eat it." he said. "They can't have the man and his job." Points To Conflict The keen competition between men and women in business makes many men fear ihal they cannot satisfy the "extravagant tastes of the modern girl," Pinkcrlon said, adding that this condition is "only natural." "How can a girl be expected lo .settle down and share n salary which in many cases is lillle more, and in some cases,.less than what she herself has been oiiming?" he asked. "Where .such marriages do lake place the result in many casc.s is lhat • Ihc woman becomes dis- conlenlcd with her lot and returns to the labor market, and perhaps is the means of placing another man on the dole."

Editor of Advance The prophet speaking to the Jewish exiles in Babylon voices] God's invitation to seek His mercy | and parlnltc of His grace in words that have brought the invitation to successive generations with! finning strength and sincerity. He is .a bold man who will presume to speak for God. but, his boldness is justified if lie speaks from Clearness lo God and from knowledge of God's diameter, will and purpose. Moreover, his words will be tested, and their truth will depend upon that testing, and not merely upon the boldness or authority of the man who uttered them. . . • These great prophetic sayings that we are studying are not made great, because the prophets uttered them; they nre great, and the world honors the prophets who uttered them, because their .spiritual worth and soundness have been proven in thought and experience. Time and experience soon separate the false prophets from the uuc. God's invitation is "to every one that thirstcth." It is expressed in a modern hymn, "Whosoever will may come." and the rich supply of Gotl's grace is compared to a boundless and cver-tlowing stream of living wnler. both in the New Testament and in the words of another hymn: "It's streams the whole creation reach, So plenteous is the store: Enough for all, enough for each, Enough forevermorc." Whal God has to give to man cannot be bought. It is without money and without price. Yet. Jews compared it with the pearl fering a ' \ f;ile than being killed." he said. "They are underfed, while Die women who took their jobs shamelessly hold on lo Iliem." The league plans lo enlist "sev- 1 crnl thousand" persons lo bring | pressure on employers who have j given men's jobs to women nr have "favored women nt the expense of men." of great price which it was worth a man's while, lo sacrifice everything to possess. * * » As a matter of fact, there is a price for God's (jrncc, but il i.s not a price in worldly coin. The wealthy, and the learned, and the powerful have no more means or possessing it than have lowly souls who come with nothing but peni- leuce and the heart's devotion. God's promises and gills are not wilhout conditions. Uis covenants arc cvcriasling, but man may forfeit his place and part, by failing to live according to Ihe covenant. God's invitation is for men lo forsake their evil ways and their unrlKliteutiJi thoughts. Man can control even li| s (noughts, ami those who uccejil God's invitation mill who follow His ways will find themselves renewed in hKird ami mim), with « new consciousness cf peace and a new stieiiBtli to love and do the right. n Asia, the earth's s u r f a c c reaches its highest and lowest Annmmc.Kme.ntn: Tile Courier News has been formally authorized lo announce Die following candidacies for office subject to the action of the Democratic prlinnrv in August.
