Missouri Favored Over Bears COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - The Missouri Tigers, off to a surprisingly strong start, will clash with the air-minded California Bears in an intersectional football game expected to draw 40,000 here Saturday. Coach Dan Devine's Tigers, a remnant of the Orange Bowl champions, have been installed a two touchdown favorite over twice beaten California. The return to duty of Randy Gold, 197 pound junior quarterback who passed for 696 yards last season, is expected to add potency to the California attack. Gold missed play in Cal's losses to Texas and Iowa. The invaders also have outstanding men in George Piero- vich, 215, fullback; Andy Segale, 215, center turned tackle, and Roger ShulL 210, linebacker. The Tigers may have to get along without first string right half Bill Tobin, « place kicking specialist who scored the only touchdown in Missouri's 6-0 victory over Minnesota last Saturday. Tobin was hurt in that game. Missouri again is expected to call on its passing game featuring Ron Taylor, but could resort to the wide sweeps that netted them 9 victories—10 counting a forfeit by Kansas—last season. Coach Marv Levy says his Bears shouldn't be gun-shy despite a 28-3 loss to Texas and 28-7 setback by Iowa. He reasons his team gained valuable experience againt those national powers. Sunday School Lesson More Than Duty By ROY L. SMITH The Uniform Sunday School lesson for October 8: "HOW CHRISTIANS GROW." Mathew It is one of the misfortunes of 11:28-30; Luke 9:51-56; 1 Corinthians 3:14; Philippians 3:4-17. this generation that, in the opinion of vast numbers of irreligious people, religion is a burdensome duty." It is a common thing, for example, to hear young people say, "I want to be free for a while and enjoy life," as though to be a religious person meant that life was limited and constrained. And it must be confessed, no small part of this opinion results from '.he fact that the Church has talked about "s u r r e n- der", "self- SMITH Steers Get Tormohlen KANSAS CITY (AP)-The Kansas City Steers of the new American Basketball League today announced acquisition of big Gene Tormohlen from the Cleveland Pipers in exchange for their second round draft choice next season and an undisclosed sum of money. Tormohlen, a « foot 9 inch 232 pound post man, played two seasons with the national champion AAU Cleveland team following graduation in 1959 from Tennessee. Coach Jack McMahon said the Steers needd an experienced big man and that Tormohlen should fill the bill. denial," and "giving up sin." The mental attitudes represented by these words are to be commended, but the words themselves sound as if religion were demanding that life be reduced to cheerlessness, grimness, and a certain stern morality that left no room for joy. Actually, good religion represents the possession of inner power. The genuinely religious man does not think of his religious reponsibilities as difficult duties to be performed as quickly as possible, in order that they may be done with. Instead he thinks of them as gateways through which he may go in search of power for living. "I knew from the start that he would become a great player," as possible. Instead, it was • game that continued to beckon him every hour of the day. It had put something into him; it had contributed a thrill to his life; he played for the fun of it. A religion that does not put something into us — that does not produce an inner power—is poor religion, no matter how faithful we may be in performing our religious duties. There was an old Gospel song of 50 years ago that expressed the idea: "Oh the Children of the Lord Have a right to shout and sing.' The religion that does not produce this sense of joy within the soul of the believer is a poor substitute for the real thing. Who has a better right to be happy than that man who is sure of the good will of God who is confident that God is his ally, and who lives without fear of the judgments of God? It can almost be said that our spiritual growth can be meas ured by the increase in our joy in living. Frank Beard, the great car toonist of 50 or more years ago once pictured a grim old man and his wife, together with their son and his wife, with bowed heads, returning thanks over their dinner. And the prayer of thanksgiving was revealing: "Lord, bless me and my wife, My son John and his wife, Us four and No more. Amen." Christian growth does not consist of the power that flows into Court Case To Test School Act HILL CITY, Kan. (AP) - The constitutionality of the 1961 Kansas school district unification act was the target of a case opening in the Graham County District Court in Hiil City today. Defendants in the case are Adell F. Tlu-ockmorton, state superintendent of public instruction, and the state Committee on School Unification. District Judge C. E.

William Ferguson, Kansas Attorney general, said Judge Birney has indicated he will have a decision ready early next week. Ferguson said ho hoped to have the Supreme Court "advance on the docket and huve a determination within a month." An attorney for the plaintiffs, Bernard J. Brungardt of Hays, said the decision of District Judge Warren T. Peters at Ness City Monday declaring the new school unification law unconstitutional relative to districts in New County would have no bearing on the case n Hill City. Salina Police Find Marijuana SALINA, Kas. (AP) - Police raided the home of a Negro couple Thursday afternon in north Salina and confiscated a large amount of marijuana.

"I wasn't at all surprised by the trade," said Piersall after it was announced just before the second World Series game that he had been sent to Washington by the Cleveland Indians in exchange for pitcher Dick Donovan, outfielder-catcher Gene Green, utility infieMer Jim Mahoney and a fourth player to be named later.

"If she's happy, then I'm happy." our lives, but the power that flows through our lives. The matured Christian is not a cistern, but a flowing stream- not an accumulation of virtues but an outgoing of mercy, sympathy, kindliness, and forgiveness. Our maturity can be measured by our spirit of concern. Jesus was not trying to say something clever when he advised his disciples not to be anxious (or worried) about tomor row). Instead, he was appealing to their faith—urging them to trust God with the issues of life. He never promised anyone an easy time of it; but he did promise sufficient power to enable us to meet the worst without worrying about the outcome. York, Latham In Russell Jail RUSSELL, Kan.
