How else explain the fact that an attack on, any local relief administration almost always degenerates, ultimately,, into an attack on social workers and a denunciation of chiselcrs? About a year ago the state of Illinois had snch an experience; today, Ohio is having one. The cases are enlightening. In Ohio, for instance, tho Cleveland Chamber of Commeice issued a long blast against the way relief was being handledf It asserted that far too many social workers were being given jobs in the iclief administration, and declared that theie were altogether loo niany chiscleis on the relief rolls. These accusations—because they are heard ,almost every lime a relief administration comes under lire—sire worth looking at'in detail. The most obvious thing about them is that they simply clon't mesh. Tho social worker, whatever his faults, is at least experienced in dealing with people who have to ask for charity. He has spent his adult life in such work. If anyone on earth should be qualified to tell whether a given applicant for relief is a "deserving case" or a shiftless moodier, it should be the 30- .cial worker. The very best insurance against having chiselers on the relief rolls, then, would logically be an administrative staff- loaded to the guards with trained social woikers. But do the critics ever see it that way? Th'uy do not. Instead, they demand—for some obscure reason—that the social workers be fired, to be replaced presumably by gifted amateurs, and, in the same breath, demand that the rolls be purged of moochers. Just how the amateuis are going to be more skilled than the social workers in telling a dcadbeat from an honest man is something that the critics never take time to explain. The lelief problem of course is one . of the meanest and most pressing problems facing America today. We cannot possibly go on indefinitely as we have bSen going in the last three yeais. Uncle Sam's pocketbook is not GUI Olffi WAY bottomless, and his credit is not without limits. But to base one's attack on the problem on the social worker and the chiseler—to talk as if most of our relief troubles would vanish overnight if the deadbcats could be removed from the rolls and the'trained workers from the administrative staffs—is to talk pure and- unadulterated nonsense of the most vicious kind. It is vicious because it tends to make people forget the real nature of the problem. The primary trouble is, lias been, and always will be the lack of jobs in private industry. Until that trouble is remedied, the other relief headaches arc secondary. Final Proof of 'Conquest 9 If you. have been rending the current dispatches from Ethiopia you must have noticed that one more Inevitable step has been taken in the white man's conquest of a dark kind. The natives who are still up in arms against the invaders have ceased to be patriots and have become "bandits." Armed Ethiopians from tlio tmcon- (]uered mountain fastness beyond' Addis Ababa recently ambushed and slew a party of Italian aviators. Straightaway they were labeled bandits in the dispatches from the provincial capital. Another group succeeded in cutting the railroad line to the sea; and: ,.,L once dispatches from Addis Ababa announced that 1 the job had been done by bandits. We Americans ought to know just how that works, We have seen: how natives in Nicaragua, Haiti, and similar lands turn, overnight, into bandits, once the marines have landed. It is interesting to see the same thing working in Ethiopia. The laws of conquest, apparently, a re universal. Planes Across the Sea Unless recent reports from London and Washington are in error, it, will not be long before the United States and Europe are connected by a regular commercial airplane line. England's Imperial Airways and America's Pan-American are reported to have joined hands in a scheme which would have each organization provide two or more huge flying boats to serve in a new trans-Atlantic nir "me. It is indicated that the first flights may be made this year. The news is- gratifying, but hardly surprising. Something like this has been in the cards ever since Pan- American showed that the planes- and the skill to span long water jumps were at last available. The final step in the age-long conquest of the sea is being taken; Americans may be proud that American brains and daring have contributed so greatly to the last triumph. The people must become actively imbued with the Idea of a co-operative society, receptive of- the general purpose mid possibilities of a co-operative commonwealth. -Secretary of Agriculture Henry A.

BY WM. E. CilLROY. D. Etlilur of Advance The sincerity of every individual experience ami every great novement of religion finds its rsls ami accompaniments In Its results. The new fallh ami fer- r or in the early clmrcli soon became manifest In a spirit of bro- lierhood and soiTlco. Many who heard the call of Shrist were people of substance H'lio owned '.-mids ami Houses, or othei 1 possessions. Under the power of the Pcnlecoslal experi- Jiicc, everything became subservient lo the supreme need and he supreme faith. Many who had possessions sold hem and laid Ihe money at the Ibclplcs 1 feet so that the ncerti; of poorer brethren might be met. that there might be' the s c" vorh. Tills happened nuf ucans of carrying on° the great in Jerusalem, lit nt n later period the saints Jerusalem themselves were in :reat need. Then it was that the amc spirit of the Gospel was Manifest in far-off Macedonia, to - vhlch the Gospel had been spread These words that Paul attributes ay Paul. In response to Paul's exhortation, these distant Christians made their contribution to the necessity of the saints in Jerusalem. Behind all this, of course, was the complete spirit of con- sccriillon on the part of the disciples, and Paul's sublime disregard of all persona"i interest in his zeal for the Kingdom. Paul has expressed both the fact and the philosophy of this experience il " " ~ iiif verse of _ , „, Jti know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, Hint, though He ivas rich, yet for your sakcs He 'became poor, that ye through His poverty might become rich." Could one iind anywhere a more vital expression of the deepest fact of Christian experience? Can one have that Christian cx- pcniencc unless there enters into all of life in motive and purpose this spirit that is expressed in the words of our golden text, "It is more blessed to give than' to receive"? the beauliful clos- our lesson.

Vicar Shocked, Favors Censor for Epitaphs LONDON (W>)_The Rev .T W Huxley-Williams, Vicar of Christ Church, Fulhain—a London suburb—spent his time while in the cemetery wailiiig for funerals to arrive; reading the epitaphs and they shocked him. He was so moved Mini he wrote in hist parish magazine protesting against the "collection of nonsensical doggerel on Ihe headstones." "How some- of HIP parsed the censorship of the local authorities I cannot, imagine," he continued. He added that they appeared to have been taken from Ihc undertaker's stock book of sentimental quotations - and were without any pretension to good English or correct representation of Christian teaching. To save the cemetery from the "ridicule of posterity" he suggests that In the future inscriptions should bo culled from the Script- or else the local clergy should be consulted. to the Master arc not recorded anywhere else, but can we their accuracy and authenticity?

The elemental Iriilli of this Christian experience of sharing and giving must be emphasized anew in this modern world, in which selfishness has become entrenched, and furthered by philosophies and creeds of self-interest. Circort and gain have been made to sipijcar worthy and beiie- ficient [hings. whereas in the life of any man who would take the leaching and example of Jesus ami of Paul, for his e Hides, they can appear only us unworthy and as contradictory to that spirit or iovc service which Is the motive of the Christian life' I OyRJ30ARDING_ HOUSE ^UK3~V^"^mi STAMP ME AS THE , GREATEST SCIENTIST ' OF ALL.-TIM.E-—•-!
