Giutoy, D. i). This Is the international temper- ice lesson, and it puts emphasis ion temperate living as well as >on abstinence from strong drink. The Bible leaches temperance by lample a.s well us by precept, and great, figure in this teaching by <amplc is Daniel, He is set before s as u perfect example of .strength irongh right living, and as a man idued with |>ower because he was holly consecrated to the will of od; and mighty In courage bc- aiise the love of God and- devo- on to His service had cast out !1 fear. I am not concerned here with le critical questions that have dl- ided scholars regarding the na- ire of the Book of Daniel. Uter- llsts Insist upon the historical ac- uracy of every detail, while liberal iterurcters pointing to its late date s a Hebrew writing, and its, late cccpla»ce Into the canon of tl(e 3!U Testament, insist that it is an pocalyptic book, like the Book of levclation In the New Testament, rlUeii In times of dire iiersecu- lon to encourage the servants of God to stand firm In their faith. The moral and spiritual realities f the Book, the strength and no- illlty of the great.character, Danel, that It portrays, arc not bound tp with controversial opinions; ami Daniel way. It la Die way of courage, and I am sure that It is the *'ay of strength and the way that ,, moat last- the surest, ing satisfactions.

Visitors arc coming in early for this graduation, the USO director pointed oul, which necessitates additional accommodations. Mr. Danielson also stressed Ihe Importance of'more people offering kitchen' privileges to sokllers wives, and the acceptance of children when:homeowners rent rooms. The altitude many have have toward renting rooms to a couple with children works a tremendous hardship on young mothers and their •roldlei'-husbands, he said, Those who have homes which Ihey will open to the incoming visitors are asked to call the USO office, telephone 2930. The King's •. Cock-Ciower was llie-title of a. British crown officer at one time. . t is these realities with which we ire concerned. Surely It is an impressive fact hat in all the records of Scrip- ,ure when an individual or a group of men had a great task to perform or some special obligation resting upon them, they are always repre- iented as being under discipline, and n most Instances abstinence from strong drink was an essential part of the discipline. We are challenged with the question whether the Bible is a good Hide or.not. The effect of a great deal that is written and said today is to challenge its authority and its realism in what it has to say about temperance and simple, wholesome living. But the real question concerning this and a great deal more in the life of our times is whether Daniel offers a reallj noble and desirable way of life and good character. Which standard are we going to set up for youth? The fact Is that for many-people today, both young and old, liquor and much that accompanies it constitutes an escape, and the! practical philosophy of life is an escapist philosophy. They are chas jiig after things that have no ren happiness in them. Jesus looked h pity upon similar people In His day, as He said, "Ye will not come unto Me, that ye might have life."
