NITE j -iis immortal Gallery Of Screen Characters ' Muni Now Adds To Paul "Dr. Newcome" CHAPTER III fTHE living room of the huge Donaldson homo was a blaze of glory. It was Christmas Eve, and Jerry, the only son of Soulh- bury's wealthy department store proprietor, was about to arrive home from college for the Christmas vacation. Mrs. Donaldson, a sentimental, over-stuffed m a t r o n, hovered about the house, giving last minute orders to servants, scrutinizing every small detail; for her Jerry, her little boy, was coming home. Then she heard footsteps on the walk, and hurried into the living room lo compose herself for Jerry's long awaited arrival. Jerry, tall, ha?ic!somo, and slightly intoxicated, appeared in Ihe doorway followed by Ihe butler. "Is lliis all, Master Donaldson?" gasped the butler as he staggered in with his load of luggage. The grips began to slip from his arms, and as he fried to balance Ibem, several pieces crashed to the Moor. Jerry, delighted, re- piled the luggage on the butler. "Absolutely all," he answered. "Jerry, darling!" Mrs. Donald- Kon skirled the butler and baggage and fell on her son's unstable neck. "Oh, mother is so glad to have you home—bill why all Ihe —luggage — just for your two Christmas weeks'. 1 " "Big surprise, mamma," announced Jerry. "Nut going back to college—can you imagine that —your Jerry boy walked right out of nasty old college and told 'em ho wasn't coming back. "Don't wanna bo a lawyer, mamma. Nobody wants me lo be r lawyer, except you, mamma. We don't need all the social prestige, not lliese days." He gave her a loving tap. "It's smart to be pro-le-tar-i-yut, just plain people like you and Pops and me, without the Ivimming.s." Mrs. Donaldson was on the verge of tears. "Oh, Jerry, this is going to be Jerry Donaldson an nwful shock lo your father—" "I don't want to run father's clepnrtment .'-lore, either,'' Jerry interrupted. He became serious. "Listen, mom, you get that straight with the old man. Just because I'm not cut out for ;i lawyer, doesn't mean I want to plant myself in this hick town for tho rest of my life, turn into a glorified floorwalker, for Pops. Plenso get that throufih his head, mother. You're tine only one can do il!" "Jerry, you don't know what you're say.ing." "I do, mother, for tho first lime in my life," insisted Jerry. ''1 know what I don't want to'be in life. That's something. It'.s n Mart. Let me live for a while will you, without any apron strings?" lie was lensely earnest and sober .for the moment. "Without a lot of parental advice and authority. Let me relax, by myself, .so I can figure it. ali out." * * * T-TE looked at her pleadingly, hoping she would understand. But his mother looked blank and confused. She saw only that her cherished dreams were vanishing, that her son was being tempera- menial and disobedient. "All that wonderful education— wasted!" Mrs. Donaldson wept. Jerry stared at her quietly for a moment, then walked over to ihe living room table and poured Created For Him And For The World By The Man Who Wrote The Unforgettable "Lost Horizon" and "Goodbye, Mr. Chips" himself a drink from tho decanter. "Jerry, don't," Mrs, 'Donaldson • begged. "You've li;id too much ; already. Oh, Jerry dear, some- ' limes J don't think you appreciate all rnnmmu ;md papa have done for you—all tho sacrifices—' "Sacrifice. 1 !?" Jerry looked qinz- zic-ally about the sumptuous home, Mrs. Donaldson sniffled into her handkerchief. She, look her son's arm and led him to a hidden re- i-'c-ss whore a" splendid Christmas tree reached to the ceiling nnd hung heavy ivith decorations jind toys. "See what I spent all day doing just lo surprise .you?" she said sentimentally. Jerry stared, unimpressed, at the ornate tree. "My lord," he cried ' with annoyance, "you'd think I was still 10." "You nre Mill' 10 — to your mother." nnswerr-d Mrs. Donaldson poiRnantly. "You always wilt be. my darling boy." She enveloped her son in a motherly hu£. Jerry drew away _rom her almost in terror. He reeled a bit. • "Ever hoar ol' thai good ole .sil-' vcr I'orcl,...Mamma?" ho drawled, and raised his class. "Time one of us cut it." He set his slass down suddenly.} "Aw—nuts!'' ho said, and slam-' in ing the door behind him, went, out into the night. QUTSIDE, Ihe wind whipped' snow into Jerry's flushed face. He. stnsRerod toward his car, climbed in and started the motor. . As he waited for the engine to warm up, Jerry contemplated- the break he had just made. "Hi-en w-anlins lo do it for a long time." bo mumbled. "Gotla. Kot away, slart on my own. Never amount to anythiiiK in this town. Nothing fur m ( ' hero-—-except the old man's store. Don't want 1o work for the old man. Gotta get away." Suddenly he reached down, cut off the niolor. "lie can have his car, too. Don't want anything 1 . Want lo be on my own. I'll make k'ood. I'll sliov/ 'cm—all o!' them. Mamma, the old man and—and Alice." The thought of the girl sobered him. She was swell. Working here in Soulhbury, teaching a flock of kids. Alice. Jerry climbed out of the car, gawd up and down the street. Someone was walking toward him. A girl. JJe drank in tho iey air, striving to clear his befuddled : brain. lie pulled a half-empty. ; bottle from his coat pocket, tossed-; it into the car, and then walked,/! inlo the darkncs;;. """• (To lie Continued) I'nrnbless of the Kingdom Text MBtlhfew 13:!).8, 31-M, 44-4B n.v WFLUAM e. afwiov, h. n. Editor of Advance Much of the charm end persistency of the leaching of Jesus lies in the form in which thnt teaching was given. Above fl ll things, of course, is the moral and spiritual worth of the truth (hat Jesus uttered. But noble truth has bedn uttered in great volumes by deep-thinking philosophers where it has been lost, perhaps to be worn and worm-eaten on the shelvs of dust-ridden libraries. Jesus put the truth in tho vivid ."lory form of parables, and these have retained all the vitality and freshness, after nearly 20 ceniuries and after the reading and re-reading, that would long ago have ended as commonplace any lesser or even more brilliant things What were these parables of Jesus Thy were stories from life. But were they true stories about actual persons and events? About this, we dc not know, but it seems more lilcely thaat they were stories formed by tho imagination of Jesus to declare and illustrate the truth that He wished t o teach. They were true that He wished to teach. They were true in the sense that they were things which might happen anywhere in daily life. They were true in their human content. When we read, for instance, the story of the Prodigal Son or of the Good Samaritan, the truth of the .'lory and its plain teaching do not depend upon whether there was an actual father and an actual son in such a situation, or whether some man actually went down tile road from Jerusalem to Jericho and was helped and cr.red for by a Good Samaritan. These stories were true in a far larger and deeper sense than as the relation of mere facts. That: is why (hey have applied so persistently to every age and race of man. Here in our lesson we have three parables of the Kingdom of Heaven, ell designed to illustrate its nature. The first is the parable of the sower, going forth to sow his seed. It might be called more properly the parable cf the hearer, f or it is intended to show how the different ways in which people react to the words of life are typified by the different sorts of ground into which the seed falls. The seed that fell by the way-side was devoured by the birds; the seed that fell on shallow earth with rock underneath had a quick growth, but also quickly withered away; the seed that fell among thorns was choked before it came to any growth; but some seed fell upon good ground and yielded fruit. The manirtg of this seems to be that the Kingdom of Heaven is not something that is forced upon us. It comes near to us, and we have the opportunity of accepting God's grace and becoming members of the kingdom; but it all depends on ourselves. What sort of ground are we? Do the seeds of truth fall on us in vain? The parable of the mustard sed and the parable of the leaven and ihe meal are told to illustrate the Wiiy in which the kingdom grows, silently yet. powerfully, as it makes Us way in the hearts of men. The parable of the treasure hidden in the field and of the merchant's seeking goodly pearls illustrates ihe suprme value of the kingdom of heaven—that is, the kingdom of God's grace is the one real possession that it is worthwhile for men to sacrifice everything else to obtain. If we believe that, we are fit for the kingdom. Aggies to Ta!¥A!l of Squad to Game 210-Piece Band and 6,000 Cadets Will Make Trip COLLEGE STATION.
