' Bbm- At Waycrbss, Ga.,>- the son of a builder oi rallrbSA bridges, he drifted tiattoally Into railroading, married at HT'and never dreamed that he woujtf 1 otte day be a bishop of the ehurch. "• "I drifted Into an old-time revival irt Waycross back In 1909 with a friend of mine. He and I paid little attentldn to what the anlnlster, Rev. Charlea ' M>» Dunnaway. of Atlanta, Waa saying, Wo remained Indifferent while''he called for the penitent to cottlB tb tfl«f»altar. That night after -we left my ohum was killed. The next night'I returned to the meeting and I answered the 'call to the altar. My life was completely changed from then 6n." / Although he had two children, Dr. Moore promptly left his job on the railroad and became a circuit rider in the southern Georgia Methodist con- fertnee. A Mrs. E. M. Thorpe, seeing the possibilities. Of a leader in the eloquent young preacher, induced him "it to gb to Bn»6ry university and get an, 'toducatidh. He dld'so, and after his graduation became one of the south's most n^ted evangeltots. His success won' fdr hlirt the,pastorate of the fash- lotiable Travis Fark Methodist church at San Antonio, where he preached until called to the Birmingham church. / An. aVerago of 60 members a year has', been added to'the Birmingham "church since lie took the pulpit there, Dr. Moore is a strict fundamentalist. "We 'hear too much of the , 'blessings of model ation' and the 'dangers of fanaticism,' " he says. "We must live at white heat. Preaching must become u romance of ..daring enthusiasm. We need 'a. gospel, not of the survival of the lit, but of the revival of the unlit."' Dr. Kern . succeeded Dr. Moore In the pulpit ofi the San Antonio church, and thpte were many who shook their " heads and predicted failure for the man who succeeded such a. brilliant '. preacher. But presently Dr. Kern was . winning a success equal to Dr. Moore's. . HlB father, Dr. John Adam -Kern,, taught .homlletlcs in Randolph-Macori college, on whose campus the new bishop grew up. The.father later was , president of , Randolph-Macon, and • «ventually became professor of practical • theology at Vamlerbllt university. / Dr. Kern was ordained to the ; ministry In 1902, became a member of the faculty of Southern Methodist \ > .'University, a«d in 1926 went to the /V Ban Antonio church. \{m,. Ap his election to a bishopric was V -'announced he was broadcasting by radio an appeal for the adoption of • % an educational report which he was i aubmftting to the Methodist conference. "I" would rather see that report adopted''than to have been elected .bishop," he said. "It means more to ' 'th6 church' than my election does." Dr. Smith, the third member of-the ticlo, IB a.

PARIS, May 31.—The Fa.rls bar will celebrate this year tho fiftieth anniversary of. Raymond Polncare's admission to the practice of law. Professional men at the Palais do Justice, who have served many years as aris barristers join in unstinted praise of France's foremost living Itlzen, and bespeak their hopes that ,he former president of France and prime minister, stabilizer of the franc, and indefatigable Republican statesman, will return to the council of order pf the bar, and next year a«- uumfi the duties of batonnier, or president of the Bar association. When in 1924 Polncare became prime, minister, he resigned from the council pf order, and since then his official duties, followed by a spell of Jll health, have prevented him from returning to the active list of tho council. Now that Poincare has recovered from his recent operation, his colleagues of the Palais do Justice are urging him to return and assume the honors which are due nfty years of distinguished service. Among other famous advocates celebrating th,elr half century of service this year Is M. de Sulut Aubun, M. Lacaze, brother of the Admiral Lacaze, and next year, M. Millerand will attain his fiftieth year at the Paris bar. : ;** omer of Native Land. Hlahop Arthur J», Moofe . . . rnllrpad brakemalt who was co Verted at A revival meeting.

BEHIND SCENES IN BUSINESS WORLD By JOHN T. FI.YNN. NEW 1 'YORK, May 31.—Whatever may have happened on tlie stock ex- (.•.hiinge certainly nothing seems to have happened to business to justify either a rising dr sinking mood during the last few weeks. Figures from car loadings and from bank clearances, which many experts believe are, when combined, the best inde'x of business, ahpw that while business has moved up during tho last nine weeks as compared with tjie previous nine weeks, it haa not moved as much as is customary in that time. This meana that the pace in Industry and trade has not yet bsgun to quicken. But this ought not to be. considered as news and will not be saved by those persons who were lured' into thinking that" tho upturn, in business was just around the .corner.. It looks now as it did a week or two ago that the rise in business is sot for tho 'fall—rwhether this will be the early fall or late fall Is not yet possible to say. Bettor retail trade is noticed In several quarters, however, Unipn Trust company, Cleveland, thinks this means that more people who were unemployed "are getting back on the pay-roll. Morq dollars are finding their way to the store counters and more stocks are being used up." This, It is felt, will sooner or later be reflected in increased manufacturing schedules and freight movements, , v Somewhat the same condition Is featured in Business week, which notes that value of commodities being moved at retail ia up, but that their volume is up still more. This, argues lower.retail prices, a fact verified from several sources. But, says that publication, "the most drastic price reductions have been due to special .situations, and are not typical." Distress merchandise is blamed. We are beginning to realize that commodity stocks are larger than was thought, in the opinion of the National Industrial Conference board. That organization refers to the rate of business activity "so far balqw normal and the usually slack summer jl_ ^ « Odftft 'folirs I <#«*< stattled. ' HbWi feme, you ask.

Honest to gosh folks, the sole' boy looked really handsome ,as he stood there, the kinks m his back all straightened out, his eyes gleaming, jlst as he musta looked as he faced them Spanish Dons, down thejre 1ft that swamp-ridden country, where, the Havana Ribbon cigars got their name, if you know what I mean. , "Lisseri Rothy," he whispered.

I tell you folks Dartte's description of hell, is a fairy vision alongside of what thofie dear boys went through in the World war. Gosh, folks, I nearly got started in a Fourth o' July oration, an' the Fourth a coupla months away. But somehow er other I can't help it, adp an' lasslea. Me, I believe that souch i events as marked those dark days Overthere are forgotten too quickly by the American people. But lookin' at Ole Bill, as he stood there llvln' over that great fight down there irt Cuba, brought It all back again to my mind, an' I couldn't help but put my thoughts on paper. How our'hearts mias a beat, as we vision those brave "Rough Riders" as they showed the haughty Dons, how useless it was to stand before those men of iron. , And what of the lads over there, the khaki-clad boys' that fought their way through battle-torn No- Man's land, through that hell on earth, that land of death, and destruction, that the world might be a better place in which to live. ' Let every head be bared. Let every heart go out to them in gratitude, as they .march by, beneath the folds of the Stars and Stripes, and the sweet notes of "Tho Star Spangled Banner" pierces the air of the land of the free and the home of the' brave.

They are, however, because so much advertising was given to the speed with which building would be resumed.

(Copyright, 193D, by Altoona Mirror.) 1 WASHINGTON, D. C., May 31.— Some of .the states are seeking to Induce the federal government to release a part of the sources of revenue now held by it, according to reports from tax commissioners in various parts of the country. State officials complain that' their expenditures to run the state governments have grown tremendously and that many states have tound it impossible to, meet these expenses-from their old sources o revenue. Figures compile* by the industria conferece board show that the ex penses of all the state governments increased from $383,000,000 in 1913 to $1,211,000,000 in 1929, the latter flguri being measured in dollars of the same purchasing value as in 1913. 'The main source of revenue for the states has always been the general property tax, -but state officials are now seeking other sources. The \ income tax has been virtually appropriated by the federal government, tax commissioners say, but in spite of hat fact nineteen states now have an ncome tax and one_other, Washing- on, imposes 'such a tax on earnings )f financial institutions. Reports received here indicate other states, including Kansas and Iowa, will give serious consideration to the tassage of an income tax law when heir legislatures meet next January.
