Abigail Van Buitn—— Some Teen-agers Like to 'Talk Big 1 DEAR ABBY: I am so upset I hardly know how to start this letter. While straightening up my teen-aged daughter's room, I came across a letter from a friend of hers in another state. I read it, partly out of curiosity, and partly to determine if it was something which could be discarded. I was horrified at the filthy language, and also at the girls delight in having found a theater which shows only dirty movies! This letter also .described family possessions and "vacations," but Abby, I know the girl's parents and correspond with them, and this girl was writing lies. What should I do? Now I suspect my daughter must be responding to these letters in equally filthy language, and since this girl is my daughter's best friend, I must assume that my daughter's tastes run toward dirty movies, too. Don't these kids know that filling their minds and mouths with garbage will do them no good? Should I write to this girl's mother and tell her to talk with her daughter? Should ; tell her what I've learned? Or by age 15, are we too late to shape our children's morals? A FAILURE DEAR "FAILURE": If you have done your best to shape your daughter's morals, you need not consider yourself a "failure." Some teen-agers feel "big" and grown-up using gutter language, exaggerating and even lying a little for effect, but that doesn't mean they are "no good." If they have been properly brought up and even the best reared children have gone thru this stage) they will outgrow it. At the appropriate time, subtly warn your daughter that mocking around in the lower registers of speech and entertainment can be habit forming.

"It has been a great factor in what success I iiave had in politics." Kirby married at the age of 19, was admitted to the bar in 1929 and served as secretary to his father when he became associate justice of the Supreme Court until 1934. From 1934 to 1937, Kirby served as assistant librarian of the Supreme Court and from 1937-44 he filled the post of librarian. He served as assistant city attorney for seven years before his election in 1951 as Littel Rock municipal judge, his first elective office.

She's not bad looking, but this poor kid can't seem to get any dates on her own. We've fixed her up with several real sharp guys, but they never ask her out again because she's so quiet. They all say it's like pulling teeth to get a word out of her. Any suggestions? A. E. PHI DEAR A. E. PHI: Yes. Get her a date with a dental student.

Then her husband who is a doctor, waves to her from the window, she honks again, waves back to him and drives off. This is terribly annoying to the neighbors, Abby, but they are such lovely people we hate to mention it. If you print this, perhaps they will take the hint. I know they read your column.

DIVINE INTERVENTION PROMISED We have a definite promise from God that "when the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him" (Isa. 59:19). The result of this divine invasion of the earth by the Spirit of God will be that men will iear the Name of the Lord from the west to the east. If there ever were a time in human history when the enemies of truth, righteousness, and Godliness have come in like a flood, it is the time in which we now live. In view of this abounding iniquity, those who believe the Bible to be the inspired Word of God have every right to believe that God will intervene, inject Himself into the flow of history, and turn (hat How unto Himself. This is our hope; this is our only hope; this is the last best hope of mankind. God will not fail. He will do what He has promised. One of the great lost truths of the Bible is that God has the most definite plans to invade the earth by His Spirit, to occupy the earth by His Spirit, and to establish and maintain His order upon the earth by means of His Spirit. The first of these is declared in Isa. 59:19. The second is staled in loel 2:28 and Acts 2:17. The third is declared in lohn 16:7-8. All this is accomplished through lesus Christ during His present session at the right hand of God in heaven. His enemies become His footstool while He is there (Heb. 1:13). It is the Spirit of the Lord that lilts up a standard against the forces of evil. This is done by > word from the Lord in heaven that in substance declares to all wicked men, "Stop — you shall go no further" (2 Tim. 3:9). God has promised to break the strength of evil and wicked men (Psa. 10:15), and to bring the wickedness of the wicked to an end (Psa. 7:9). These are remarkable promises, and it is a tragedy that very few know anything about them. The promise of God that He will pour out of His Spirit upon all flesh (Joel 2:28, Acts 2:17) is one so great that it staggers Ihe imagination. Very few who claim to believe what God says are able to bring themselves to believe this specific statement. Nevertheless, this is the way that God will invade Ihe earth by His Spirit and occupy the earth by His Spirit. When this promise becomes a reality, then the great promise of Christ thai the Spirit of God, acting as an Advocate (one positioned alongside to advise), will make the (acts known to the world in regard to sin, righteousness, and judgment (John 16:7-8). It is then that a man will hear a voice behind him saying, "This is the way, walk ye in it, when he turns to the right hand, and when he turns to the left" (Isa. 30:21). We can only pity those who see no work of Gad ahead for mankind except the blackness of tribulation and an imaginary Armageddon. God has made great and wonderful promises. These will be fulfilled to the letter. Otis Q. Sellers. Thii l> t message in our Newspiper Evinjelism Project. We s«ek to serve those who desire i better underitindint of God's Word.
