GILROY, D. D Edilor of Advance One of the remarkable things of literature, illustrated in the history of practically all peoples, is thc persistency of truth when it is expressed m the form of stories or parables Even where such stories are not written, or do not become written until a later time, they persist from age to age. The well-known Fables Aesop offer an example of mu. u , teaching in story form from secular literature, and these have a point and freshness for each of young folk. Copyright 1940 NEA Service Inc.

Parris was Apprehensive and miserable for precisely the reasons she had named. . Today, for the first time since— pmce that dreadful day, he walked boldly down through the evergreen groves toward the pond. Renee, my darling. I love you. I didn t know then how much I know now." At the sound of the words which s artlcd him back into the present, all sense of her presence was gone. Time had begun to pass. It wouldn't ever stop now. It would go every day, faster and faster.

Parris avoided most of the events. A week later Madame von Eln left for St. Louis for hospital observation, and Parris yielded to Drake s insistence on a camping trip. His grandmother returned to Kings Row before him, looking less well than when she left. He went to Anna, to tell me! say?" "Nothing new. I must tell you Madame is no.1 well. Just go on as it everything were as usual, Parris. Don't let her think you are worried about her." It was in town that afternoon that Parris learned from Colonel Skeffington-of Mrs.' Tower's death ''Very strange," the Colonel said. Nobody knew she was ill at all, not at all. If you notice anything curious ovaer there, son "• * * * pARRIS found Dr. Tower reading. He appeared as calm and unperturbed as always. "I just heard a few minutes ago about Mrs. Tower. I'm very sorry " Dr. Tower looked as if he were not reaftly listening. He inclined his head again. Pai-ras stammered a little, and contiroied: "I was away, you know. My grandmother was away, too, '" St. Louis, or you would have Parris blushed. "I hope that when you get into your work in Vienna you'll find that—all of this has been a help. Some of it has been inadequate, some of it has been—is in advance of any institutional study you could have gotten anywhere. I think some of it will prove useful." Parris felt a quick surge of curiosity. He was sure that this man was really able and intelligent— probably a very fine doctor. What was the matter? What landed him here in Kings Row with his sole contact these lectures and talks to a medical student? Parris sighed. "Maybe it would be more sensible for me just to be a doctor, and not start out to specialize in any sort of way, but " "Well?" "It's just that I think I really want to. It sounds a lot more interesting." "It is. It is a vast field for research. I don't know if the time has come for this kind of study, or not. It looks as if it might come now." "I guess I keep thinking of Lucy Cair, the—" "Oh, yes. The insane woman you played to. Oh, yes, yes." "And Benny Singer." "You don't feel such people- well, sort of objectionable?" Parris looked as if he didn't understand what the doctor meant He shook his head. "No, sir. Never if | Because Drake was considered - "wild," and the "town was talking," Louise was forbidden to see him. Thc two of them had quarreled, Parris interceding in hopes of salving Drake's petulance, easing Louise's pain. How, he wondered, could Dr. and Mrs. Gordon be such pillars of virtue in Kings Row and at the same time so determined to make their daughter miserable? He felt again the strange working of that intuition that made him doubt accepted values. They were steely—the Gordons. Couldn't they see that Louise was—he supposed "sweet" was the word, and really in love? And that Drake, for all his swagl gering, was a fine boy, and lonely? "Listen, Drake." "I know that tone T . , . of voice. You re going to have some kind of a sensible suggestion. I don't want sensible suggestions. I want you to say something to make me feel better." "I was just going to ask you why you don't marry Louise, right off. You're your own boss, as Louise said. You've got enough money—" "I'm not 21 yet, Parris. The Fanners Exchange Bank hasn't got much to say about what I do, but they don't have to give me a cent more'ji they think I need to live on." new generation But the great, incomparable example is the parable of Jesus, devoted not merely to moral precepts or instructions but to making plain and emphasizing the deepest spiritual truth. Nor are the parables of Jesus mere analogies, or statements of resemblances. Analogies are apt to fail at some point and to become actually misleading, but the stories of Jesus were all selected and told with a precision that made their meaning accurate. Take, for instance, a parable like that of the Prodigal Son. Here we have not merely a story of an earthly father who was like our Heavenly Father, but a story that so accurately tells (lie nature and significance of God's grace at every point that no question is left and no sense of discrepancy. As is often true of analogies or allegories, here in our lesson in the "parables by the sea" we have five parables illustrating the nature of the kingdom of heaven or different phases of that kingdom. Jesus likens it, first of all, to seed which a man casts upon the earth. But the casting of the seed does not assure a crop; it is the power of God in nature working with man that brings growth and makes possible the ultimate harvest Could there be a finer illustration than this, of farmer sowing his seed, sleeping and rising night and day while the process of growth goes or through the forces of nature workinj with him and producing a harvest It is an exact illustration of how God works with men, and of how n- may co-operate with God. The parable of the mustard sc 'Ride 'Em Cowboy 7 Opens at Saenger Theater Here Sunday illustrates what we so often see—the growth of great and mighty things 'rom small beginnings. The mustard seed was so small that "a grain of mustard seed" was a byword at the time for something very minute. The •eference to this seed, growing into something "greater than all the herbs' or a tree, has puzzled scholars. There s a tree called 'the mustard known o the Arabs, but it does not grow in D alestine, and the reference would seem to be to a bush that grew to a leight of from eight to- twelve feet, on the branches of which birds would! alight to eat the seeds. The detail s not important; what is important s the fact of he immense growth rorri the small beginning. And surely .here is no beU.tr illustration of this ban in the growth of Christianity tsclf. The parables of thc treasure hidden in the field and of the merchant eeking the pearl of great price il- ustrate the supremacy of thc kingdom if God and the way in which it must >e the first and commanding quest if the true disciple. And the final parable of the net ast into the sea tells of the kingdom f God in relation to the world, with he . profound opportunity of man aught into the great net of God's ivine grace, but with the inevit- ble separation of the good from ! ie bad, as man accepts or spurns lat grace. j What a full-orbed picture all five j arables give of the kingdom of God nd of man's relation to it!

Parris fumbled with some papers. —J "Madame von Eln came to see just before she went to St. Singer/ Dr. Tower half closed his eyes "I sometimes think the whole thing is a problem for the poet." Dr. Tower stood up. He pushed books and papers about impatiently. "Well, I hope you've enjoyed the chat. I did. Now, get on with you, Parris Mitchell. You've got a summer of tough work ahead. I won't fool you about that. We'll get those letters off to Vienna, and then we'll know in a month or so how things stand." was deeply concerned for Drake, whose pride had been dealt a telling blow by Dr. Gordon. That Drake was in love with Louise Gordon, Parris did not doubt —nor that frail, pretty Louise, weakened in strength and purpose by the united wills of overwhelming parents, loved Drake. I thought—" "I've got a checking account But it's just about three thousand dollars, or was, I mean. I've spent a lot of it. Can you imagine what old Mr. Curley, he's the trustee, would say if I told him I wanted some of my money so I could get married?" "Could you start in some kind of business, do you think?" "I've been turning that over and over in my mind. You know I've been talking to Peyton Graves. He's going to work in real estate." "Sure enough. Old Peyton Graves. I didn't know he had any get-up about him." "Peyton's got the same idea I had about that tract of land right up there by the public school. He said if I could get my money out and put some in with him—his uncle would let him have some— we could swing in together and make us a lot of money." looked respectfully at Parris Drake. "Are you going to do it?" "Can't. I just halfway hinted to old Curley something about an investment, and he nearly jumped on me. Not a cent till I'm 211 I'd borrow it against my inheritance, but I don't expect anybody'd let me have it. Curley'd stop anything, I guess."
