"" Christ alone has the' words "of eternal life that'give--purpose J to living. Rev. C.'.E. Weber, 1 pastor of the Broadway Christian church, told listeners yesterday.

Rcvi ,Weber'said in. part: ) "1'ou and I live In a world: which surges with unrest like the mighty breakers that beat upon our rock- bpund coasts. Every one of us who reads a newspaper or hears the news reports:or-has evena passing acquaintance; with the'.things that take place on- the International scene feels deep concern over each succeedingcrisis. "We wonder..'to whom shall we go for help?' We .have, looked to the UNO -and, although we have a shock for your subconscious--t awaken to /the realization "tha your life is utterly worthless sim ply because you have "never give your life to anything that reall matters.' "Then you become irritable.Tner vous and sick. And neither yo nor-your doctor knows , what'" wrong. One oi; . Europe's" mos eminent psychiatrists states tha fully two-thirds . of his '.patient have little wrong except the .tec of purpose in living. Such uselessness and meamnglessness 4 life makes us a prey to any ism or pseudo faith that happen along; we join any cause tha promises us a kind of-salvation Or else we seek to escape th shock of our own lack' of pur pose by transferring to our owr record by imagination the feats o our favorfie athlete and* th glamor of Hollywood's best.
