Jesus made the message of love .distinctive in that He applied ji to every phase and relationship of. life. Ho did not set it up as the bond between men in an ideal, society, saying, "A day will co mewhen all men will love one another, and when we shall have a society where that is possible." He brought His message of love into the world of actual humanity with all its varying interests and with all its conflicting jealous and hatreds. And He said (Jir,t the anly way of bettering this world was where men learned, even in these very conditions to love , their enemies. It is natural and easy to love one's friends. Only an abnormal man fails lo feel affection for Ihose of his own kin and of his own Iribe. Bui Jesus saw il in such love, pleasant as it might be no real gain or overcoming. "If ye love them that love you, what reward have ye?" It is when one's love reaches out more widely and deeply to the overcoming of, hale and selfishness that love really lifts man and socilcy to a higher level. This is whore the emphasis must be—not only upon love, nor upon love only one's neighbors, but upon love to one's enimies. We must-view even the most evil of men and the worst of oppressors and persecutors of today wit hhope and iwth a yearning for human redemption. I£ is easy, in the presence of the horrible atrocies thai nre being perpetrated, to vent'our feelings fact, it cio so.

D, Editor, of Advance I have formerly remarked upon the grea Himeloss of recent lessons that come with particular appropriatness and challenge into the area of present world conditions and events. Could there be more important lesson at the present moment than htis concerning Christ's ne wcommand- mcnl of love? The civilized world stands appalled at thereceiit revelations of enmity and hale. We have seen the destruction of boundaries and the downfall of nations because peoples, of different race and language refused to live together wilht tolcr- int recognition of one another an dof their mutual interests. We have seen a whole people persecuted, oppressed, robbed, and harried in incredible ways by one of the largest nations of Europe; and we have see other in the same country similarly persecuted because of their religion. In another part of the world an indent and peaceable people has been its life uprooted and its country ravaged by a ruthlessly militaristic nation, concerning whom it may be said that they have only too sadly followed the example set them by western nations at their worst. Hre in our own land we realized that the menace to democracy that . is present '" sec- (ional pcalousios and in religious, social, and racial bigotry. Surely there is no lesson that we need to learn so much as the lesson of love, and the fact that there can bt Thus, in this world, we must preach and live the doctrine of the good neighbor, but we must do even more. We must seek to build up a neighborly world where enimies, through love, may become neighbors. . CHURCHES FIRST iYIKTHODIST CHURCH Kenneth L.

CHAPTER V AT Sally's insistence, that nex morning of her last lesson, Da agreed to let her' try a steepe hill. "But when you corne to th Intermediate sign," he cautioned "bear to the left. The rest of thi trail is dangerous—there's a shee drop of forty-five degrees at on point, some wicked turns and. mor than one obstacle, an open brool for one thing; near the ravine, a barbed wire fence." Sally had taken that trail, mor than once, clearing its obstacles mastering its turns. But of course she could not tell that to Dan Or should she confess to him, on this last morning—this last da> that they might have together— that she had deceived him? Would he forgive her,' understand, if she did? Looking at his grave face, into his honest gray eyes, she had her doubts. He would think she had been laughing at him, pretending lo be a novice, as indeed, at the start, she had. He would not realize she had chosen the only way she could contrive in hei subtle feminine fashion, to make him take notice of her. "It has been fun, hasn't it?" she asked, impulsively, eagerly. "These early morning lessons. You've enjoyed them, too, haven't you Dan? You'll be a little bit sorry to have them end?" Sorry that this is our last time together, she meant. Sorry to have me go away. Perhaps never to see me again. It was funny, and yet not at all funny, either, the ache that this last thought could bring. "Yes. It's been fun." Dan's answer was brief, his gray eyes unsmiling. "Do you think I'm the sort of girl you thought I was?" Sally persisted. "Prom trotter, party girl—not good for anything else?" Maybe it was not quite fair to ask him that. But she had to know. * * * JTE climbed steadily on, not turning his head to look at her. Maybe because he knew how lovely she looked, her cheeks flushed from the clean sweet air, her dark eyes shining; lovely and unattainable—for him. "Don't you like me—a little bit?" Sally persisted, her heart hammering hard beneath her plaid jacket, and not just from the long climb; she knew how to conserve her breath for that. "I like you, Dan—a lot," she added softly, frankly, without any coquetry or guile. She had forgot that this conquest had been begun on a dare. That their worlds lay miles apart i The only thing that mattered i this beautiful white world on th crystal morning was the answer h would give. He turned toward her now, al most roughly. They had reache the mountain top. It was abov timber line; they could look dow on a layer of whipped-crear clouds, nestling low over the dar forest; the long clean sweep c deep powder snow. This was world apart, belonging just t them. "You know you shouldn't as. me that," Dan said. His tone wa rough, too, almost angry. "Why not?" Sally said. He look held his. "Because you know I do. I lik you too much, Sally Blair. Mor than I've any right to, more thax I should." * * * TF her heart had hammered hard before, now its beating was al most suffocating, a dizzy, throb bing song of joy. For this wa Sally's moment, her hour o triumph. He liked her—more thai he should. He felt toward her a she did toward him. As she had as she knew now, from that firs time when she had stopped to see lim poised, high above her head to watch the incredibly swift graci of his flight, to know that she mus find out who he was, what he was somehow get to know him. "What if I give you the right? Sally asked. Time was so fleet- ng, this lovely moment would jreak to drift away like the clouds below. Everything had to come to an end, as she had said to Corey only last night. Though it was not of Corey she thought now. "You couldn't," Dan answered till gruffly. "You don't know A-hat you're saying. It might seem •ight—here and now—but, as I old you, I can't allow myself to lave time for girls like you. I lon't dare believe in you, Sally Blair." "Then you are a coward!" Sally eturned. The high color flamed n her cheeks; her dark eyes wore heir dangerous look. She had of- ered him her heart—she, Sally Blair, Queen of the carnival, most -5opular girl of them all. She had ffered him her heart, and he had efused it. He had taken her mo- nent of triumph, the song in her eart, and broken it between his trong hard hands. * * * OU think you're so fine and brave," Sally said. "Because ou are king on skis. But you're coward at heart, Dan Reynolds, fou're afraid of your own self, of ie real things in the world. I new that—from the first. I told ic others. Corey and all the ang. I only Bothered with you, et you teach me what I already knew about skiing, to show you up, put you in your place, have the last laugh. It was all in fun. —on a dare." "You mean that?" Dan took a step toward her, caught her two wrists in his strong clasp. His gray eyes were black with fury; the high spots of color stood out on his smoothly tanned skin. "Of course I mean it!" Sally cried. Because she didn't, at all. Because she did not know what had made her say such things, now that they were no longei true. Because her heart was crying out. Because she loved him —and hated him—at the same time. "I never meant anything so much before. I'll prove it to you —if you like." She wrenched away from him, swung on her skis, headed for the edge of the sheer drop. She heard Dan call out a warning, the W hir of his skis. But Sally had taken the schuss!—skis close, body nearly erect, hands at her sides. Perfect form and grace and skill. Perfect landing, too, on the smooth firm surface a hundred feet below. Wind humming in her ears, lashing against her face, the .vhite world skimming past like \ lantern-slide run off at top speed. Thirty-five or 40 miles an hour, with the wind, urging her on. Now she would pass the Cau- ion sign of the Intermediate run. Si * * thought she heard Dan's voice again, raised in shrill varning, or perhaps in a cry of appeal. But now Sally was driven on by a stronger force than ajiger, or hatred or love. She was filled >vith the sheer exultation of peed, the mad glory of danger. She knew that soon Dan would atch up with her, although, she lad got off to such a head, start, could not keep the lead all he way. Now she cleared' the irook with one wide clean sweep —that would make Dan catch his reath, open his eyes! She could lot see the fence at the foot of he hill—perhaps a snow drift oncealed it from this distance. Once more she heard Dan's oice—he must be almost up to er. This time she heard him, call er name, repeatedly, urgently. Then, throwing her weight on le outside ski to check control in 10 first "Christie," preparing to orlage for the forward lean, the vind caught the tips of Sally's cis, she plunged forward, crum- ling into a tangled heap, was urtled on down the steep pitch oward the barbed wire fence that oomed now, ominously near.

Not since the last split on the question of the "dead" or "live" ball back in 1935 has there been such a spirit of concession between the two sides of the big league picture as was shown throughout the second day of the three day annual conclave. After meeting Tuesday and Wednesday in sep'arate get togethers, the two loops convene under Commissioner K. M. Landis' guidance Thursday in joint session. While rumors of impending trades still were heard, each of the two leagues gave some ground in then- previous j^tand on the ball question. They finally agreed on a pellet for 1939 which will have the raised and increased stitching of this year's so- 1 called .'dead" ball of the National League, and the thinner cover of the American League's livelier missle, Then, the junior circuit swept its objections to night baseball out the window, passed a resolution introducing the game to its league, and granted permission to the Cleveland Indians and Philadelphia Athletics to' start the arc light business going next season. The Indians, with a partial lighting system already erected in Cleveland Municipal Stadium, will spend about $60,000 to complete it in time for the '39 campaign. Connie Mack will invest some 5100,000 in a plant for the A's Shibe Park. With the Philadelphia park equipped, it is likely the Phillies, who now play in the same stadium as the A's will join the Cincinnati Reds and the Dodgers in performing under the lights ! n the National League. While the magnates met behind locked doors, the managers and writers c swept all over the halls and lobbies by the trade winds which blew so hot it seemed just about every club n the league was on the verge of presenting a "new faces" act. Bucky iarris, the Senators' pilot, and Del Baker, boss of the Detroit Tigers, were elosek-il for an hour, but Bucky came -ml later with the flat statement that t diri not concern any deal. However. a s one writer pointed out, what else would two managers be alking about by themselves for a full i hour. There was a recurrence of the! •eport that shortstop Cecil Travis of he Nats was headed for Detroit, but he Senators explained the Tigers were lot willing to offer enough playing nalcrial in exchange. here Thursday. Representatives of the state's municipalities voted to sponsor a measure calling for increase in the gasoline tax turnback from threerquarters pf a cent a gallon—which is paid into county highway funds under present statutes —to one cent, with the increased share to be earmarked for use by cities and towns. Representatives of 41 towns and cities who attended the meeting said that a concerted effort to pass the proposed measure would be made. They hoped for co-operation of county judges but were determined to present a united front to any-opposition. Speakers said the proposal would not affect the county road fund -nor reduce revenues for county turnback. They sajd municipalities needed the money to maintain streets of towns and cities now in "desperate financial plight" because of insufficient revenues.
