The Golden Text is: "In the multitude of dreams and many words there arc also divers vanities: but fear thou God" (Ecelesias-tes5:7). Among the citations which comprise tho Lesson-Sermon is the following from the Bible: "I was envious at the foolish, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked. They say, How doth God know? and is there knowledge in the most High? Behold, these are the ungodly, who prosper in the world; When I thought to know this, it was too painful for me; Until I went into the sanctuary of God; then understood I their end" (Psalms 73:3, 11, 12, 16, 17). The Lesson-Sermon also includes the following passages from the Christian Science textbook,"Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy: "At-temps to conciliate society and so ain dominion over mankind, arise from worldly weakness" (p. 238). "The wicked man is not the ruler of his upright neighbor. Let it be understood that success in error is 'efeat in Truth. The watchword of "'hristian Science is Scriptural: 'Let he wicked forsake his way, and the im-ighteous man his thoughts' " (P. 239).

War's Decisive Battle Rages In Aachen Gap (Continued from page 1) the German armies is going to be a costly affair carried out a snail's pace. The London press has cautioned the British people against anticipating a quick break through on the northern sector of the Westwall, emphasizing that crack Nazi troops in this area now are putting up tne trroatnat fiirlit nf the entire war un der the skilled direction of the best military brains in the regular German army. English papers deny that Field Marshal Sir Bernard Montgomery has launched his major attack yet. The belief prevails that Monty is waiting for a break in the weather before throwing In the full weight of the British Second Army with air support. A few days of good weather might make all the difference with an aerial offensive sufficiently demoralizing to the defenders to enable the Allied armies to achieve a breakthrough that would carry them deep into the Reich. LONDON. England. The German high command asserted today that the defensive battle In the Aachen region Is roaring to a climax, with the Americans allegedly throwing in fresh reserves "to make up their heavy losses." These units were used in the sector between Geilenkirchen and Esch-weller, the communique claimed. It alleged that the Doughboys were thrown back in fierce counterattacks and claimed that in the dense Hurtgen Forest the Yanks were pinned down in tree-to-tree fighting. The enemy high command asserted that German troops still are fighting In the ancient fortresses of Metz but admitted strong pressure north of Delfort on the Alsace-Lorraine border.

(International, Germans Admit Fall of City to Allied Pincers (Continued from page 1) enemy forces Jammed against the Rhine in the Vosges mountains sector, the Seventh army moved southward as far as Seales, nearly 30 miles below Strasbourg. British Drive Over Minefield Northwest of the pivotal Dutch Junction city of Venlo, British second army troops followed up a German withdrawal, feeling their way through minefields to eke out gains a r-nM turn In Ihraa thftltBa till VfirHa llltU VI1W 1IIS5 Wl licuiaih. General Eisenhower's spokesmen announced that the region southwest of Roermond, which the Germans said they evacuated nearly 48 hours ago, is so flooded that Allied troops are living what they termed "housetop" lives. First Army Front Ablaze ' The western rim of the fighting fronts continued ablaze with fierce action, waged in rain and mud and with gains measured in yards at the most. The U. S. First army captured the village of Putzlohn and fought its way slowly forward in the outskirts of Weisweiller. To the east of that village slow but continued advances were made. Five miles west of the road hub of Duren in the area south of Langer Weihe, the Germans made three counter-attacks near the main highway from Eschweiler to Duren and thus to Cologne. Two of the attacks were stopped in their tracks but one forced the Americans to yield a hill. In the Hurtgen forest, fighting was described as "hard and slow." Third Inside Siegfried Line Lieut. Gen. George S. Patton's hard-hitting U. S. Third army took the town of Butzdorf near Tettingen, capturing five pillboxes in an operation which may have carried them inside the Siegfried line defense belt. His tank units slugged their way a half-mile forward to the Givry-Court wood. The Germans aimed a couner-blow led by several tanks at the junction point of the Third and Seventh armies, but failed to achieve any success. General Eisenhower's spokesmen said that there have been several strong counter-thrusts in that area during recent days. French Take Two Tonus The French First army, co-operating in the closing of the Vosges pincers, took Rougemont and Le Chateau in bard fighting. Supreme Allied headquarters disclosed that the city of Strasbourg is occupied almost totally with the exception of a few remaining pockets of German resistance. Liberation of Strasbourg came in the wake of a full day of street fighting Friday as brig. Gen. Jacques LeClerc's French troops, attached to the Seventh army surged through the city, capturing 2,000 prisoners in their drive.

GOLDEN TEXT Lot him that Holt itaal no mora: but ralhar lat him labor, working with hii handa tha thing thai la (ood. that ha may hava to (Iva Is him that naadath. Spheslans :SS. Work la a blessing, and the proper attitude toward it Is an important part of the life of a Christian. Industry has found its best and most dependable workers among those who believe in Christ. It has also come to realize that the strengthening of the faith of Its workers makes them better workmen; hence we see all over the land the interesting development ot chaplains in industrial plants. That activity rightly planned and properly conducted can be of great value to both the Individual and to industry. Our lesson rightly deals with the individual. Christianity la a personal matter, a life rather than a theory. -It deals with the man rather than the mass. I. We Are Accountable for Opportunity (Luke 19:15). The king in this parable is Christ, who has now gone away, to return when God is ready for Him to set up His kingdom on earth. In the meantime His servants have been given that which they should be using for Him. Two things stand out in this story. First, the fact that Jesus is coming again. There are many scoffers who deny that blessed truth (II Pet. 3:3, 4). There are many believers to whom the promise has become but a formal truth in a confession of faith or a creed. But the failure of men to recognize truth and their unwillingness to hold lt precious, do not alter the fact. Jesus is coming againl When He comes, He will have many things to accomplish, but and this is our second fact one of the most important Is that there shall be an accounting with His followers (who are supposed to be Hia servants) regarding the life they have lived. What will your answer and mine be in that day? It depends on what we are and what we are doing right now. The basis of His Judgment appears in the following verses, where we learn that: n. We Are to Be Rewarded for Faithfulness (Luke 19:18-26). When believers stand in the presence of Christ to answer for the deeds done In the flesh (our sins were judged at Calvary I), it will not be a question of what church you belong to, or what family name you bear, or how much money you have amassed. No, the only question asked will be, "Have you been faithful in trading with the gifts, the abilities and the opportunities which God has given you?" Note that there are three different judgments here, but all on the one ground of faithfulness. The first man represents those who with all diligence and zeal seek to grow spiritually and to serve the Lord with glad abandon. All that they have and are they give to Him for His glory and for the winning of others to Him. They will be commended by the Lord and great will be their reward! The second man, with equal opportunity, did accomplish something, but not too much. He represents those who do want to serve the Lord but with no special zeal, no great measure of sacrificial endeavor-just "average" (what an unfortunate standard!) Christians. . The Lord is fair. He does not deprive them of their reward. In the measure that they have been faithful, they too shall find joyous service for Him. But observe that there is no special word ot commendation in this case, and there is a limited reward. The third man represents those who profess to be in fear of God. He seems to demand so much of them and they are not ready to give it. After all, they say, we want to enjoy life. Why should the Lord expect so much of us? Not only do they lose all reward, but the Lord must take away even that which He has already given. III. We Are Commanded to Work (II Thes. 3:10-12). From the day that God put Adam in the garden of Eden to care for it, honest work has been the lot of all mankind yes, and bis honor. There is no place in the economy of God for the man or woman who is able to work but is not willing to do so. "If any will not work, neither let him eat" (v. 10). Apparently there were some In the church at Thessalonica who perverted the teaching of the Lord's return, who said that if Jesus were coming any day there was no use working. They had turned the truth completely around. The point is that since Jesus may come at any time, we should all be doing our utmost to accomplish all we can so that we may stand in His presence with joy, and not with shame.
