Ana, though he was willing, to sacrifice the life ol nn Innocent man for Ills own advantage, ho could not, resist Jcat- hiK with Hie cliimorous enemies of Jesus, "Shall I crucify your king/" The soldiers, too, had to have their cruel Jest, plaiting their crown of (horns, putting It on His head robing Him tauntingly in purple, nml mocking Him, "Hall, King of the jews!" In their cruel Jesting and clowning Iliey did better than they knew. The crown () f thorns has become Ihe truest, aii<| noblest crown In history, and lie, whom they called In mockery "King of the Jews." has become the King of the World. It l.s trust thai Jesus said that Hi.s Kingdom wa.s not of this world, but He spoke of Ills disciples ^s but not of the is true also of Hh "in the world, world," and that Kingdom. There were two classes who were kingdom on earth.- To His friends, .Jesus gave the assurance that lils Kingdom was i;plrilual, n Klnudom of Inner rule in the ..hearts of men. The emphasis of Jesus was not "IKin outward power and authority, the tokens of earlhly kings and kingdoms, but upon Ihe Ideas, the faith, the vision ,the motives that control conduct. Thus, when He laught Ills disciples lo pray, "Thy Kingdom come," He added the In- Irrprctallve petition, "They will l) ( , done on earth as It is In Heaven." We lire subject to the danger nf niRtcrlallKliig the Kingdom ot Christ even today. Attempts to establish theocracies, to build Chrls- tUn states on the basis of external inilhority and power, have failed. True religion cannot be forced. Christianity must be built upon love, and upon rlt'htcousncss and Irulh. Many people today are looking (o the church as a barrier against communism. especially atheistic communism. If this is merely, or chiefly, an appeal for power against ixnvcr. there can be little doubt of the result.

The third asked two election commissioners to produce poll las lists as credited l' o them by the county clerk. Today's action supplemented an curlier charge filed In federal court in Fort SmIUi ytstewlay charging that McLaughlln's political organization was conspiring to "stuff the ballot boxes" with '•f!ctlclous_and fraudulent ballots." Meanwhile, the administration forces began to produce persons listed as non-existent in the veterans .suit. War veteran Gilbert M.
