"Why go to the expense of pouring a sidewalk and leaving it three or.four inches low for 30 or 40 feet so people have to gel' out in the 'street to keep from wading the water, such as in the case at 400 North Fifth?" — Wet-Footed Pedestrian, City.

They 'were 'not allowed^ to build the sidewalk any higher because they could only replace the old sidewalk :.. not build a better one. Had. 'they elevated "the sidewalk without hauling in'fill dirt to build up' your property, they would have caused water to drain onto your property ... thus opening.UR for a damage suit, according to Cupples. Cupples said if you'll guarantee .Urban Renewal that they won't be sued, they will arrange .to have the sidewalk built up ... at their expense, You'll have to foot the bill to elevate your private sidewalk (that leads from.the public walkway to your front door).

Cranks Get Hot Line PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Dr. Anthony F. Panzetta, head of Temple University's Community Mental Health Center, says telephone cranks are among the people his center is trying to help, not screen out. For this reason, Panzetta issued orders this week that psychiatrists and psychologists in the -operation's 24-hour-a-day "crisis center" for psychiatric emergencies answer their own telephones. This way, he said, cranks and other persons who need help with their problems won't "get the runaroUnd," Which he say» isn't intentional but comes from secretaries' lack of professional training.

I 12-30,14,13, 20 THE ACTS DISPENSATION There is one concept of truth which above all others, will help .the- student of the New Testament to understand it. II will answer questions, solve problems, clear up contradictions, and make possible logical and viable interpretations. It is the truth that the thirty-three year period of which the book of Acts is the history was a unique dispensation of .God. In this era He was dealing with men in a way He is not dealing with them today, and was accomplishing purposes upon which He is not even working today. Failure to recognize this great truth makes it impossible to properly understand many portions of the New Testament. This is especially true of the six epistles written by Paul during this period. These are First and Second Thessalonians, First and Second Corinthians, Galatians and Romans. These are in harmony with the administration of God under which they were written. These books contain many eternal truths which are not subject to change, but they also contain dispensational truths which changed when the dispensation ended. For example see Rom. 1:16 (last clause), Rom. 3:1,2, Rom. 15:27,1 Cor. 6:1,1 Cor. 7:27. The foundation of the Acts dispensation is found in the words of the lord Jesus recorded in Mark 16:15-18. "And He said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not "Shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In My name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; they shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover." These words were fulfilled to the letter in the Acts period. This is demonstrated by Mark's final words: "And they went forth, and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word'with signs following" (Mark 16:20). The chief characteristic of the Acts period was that God-commissioned men (apostles) went forth speaking a God-inspired message, e*ch word of which was given to them each time they spoke it ind in the mother tongue of the one for whom it was intended. The word they spoke was always confirmed with signs that followed, and when anyone believed the message, his faith was confirmed by miraculous signs in His own life. This was the unvarying pattern of the Acts period. It was entirely .different from God's method of dealing with men today. We proclaim in inspired Word that is written. It is not confirmed by signs. We ire shut up to faith in the written Word, and tre satisfied to be in that blessed company "that hive not seen, and yit hive believed" (John 20:29). Otis Q. Sellers. .
