Sunday School Lesson What Is It That You Most Surely Believe? By ROY L. SMITH The Uniform Sunday School lesson for March 24: "JESUS ANSWERS HIS CRITICS," Mark 12:13-44. A famous American, who had crossed the country conducting a series of open forums on a particularly pressing matter with which the people of the nation were confronted, was confiding in a friend with whom he was lunching. "The most discouraging thing I encountered on this trip," he said, "w a s the low • voltage of the questions that were asked of me. I did my bes< to make t h * people under stand the grav ty of the case hut in the ques tion and answer SMITH period we became all fouled up with petty details." Ours is no time to be wasting energy, spiritual resources, and divine impowerment on trifles. And inside the Church, least of all, is there reason for exhausting ourselves with trivialities. As one who has heen questioned by literally thousands of people on religious matters, I have been impressed by the number of those whose interest in spiritual affairs goes no farther than a more or less idle curiosity. I remember being called at a I hotel by someone who insisted someone who on seeing me "because you are the world who think one person in the can answer a question that has been troubling me for years." When my caller finally came to lay the great matter before me, I found she was a well dress, ed woman, more or less personable, who occupied a position of some power and influence in the community. And the question she laid before me, with such seriousness, was an old bromide. "Who was Cain's wife?" As if, had I been able tc answer her to her satisfaction, the answer would have made any difference. The Pharisees and the lawyers who brought their entangling questions to Jesus were not interested in making Judaism an effective enemy of injustice. Nor did they have any concern for the poor, who chafed under the grouping of the Temple hierarchy. The only demand they made on religion was that it should satisfy some legal difficulty, or that it should solve some problem of spiritual logistics. In the meantime, the great question of life went ignored. How to win the victory over frustrations, sin, temptation, and lust; how to make contact with Radar Traps Questioned, Too Catching Speeders From Air Illegal, Missouri Judge Rules SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) Speeders in Greene County won't have to worry about the eye in the sky any more. The Missouri Highway Patrol says it will quit using an airplane spotter to catch speeders in the county because a circuit court judge ruled it wasn't legal. "The ruling of one circuit judge isn't necessarily the law," Patrol Supt. Hugh H. Waggoner said Thursday. "But it is the type of thing that will spread." Radar speed traps also may be abandoned in the county. The change of policy arose from the case of Robert W. Plaster of Lebanon, Mo. Plaster was arrested by a highway patrolman after an airplane spotter reported he drove 84.9 miles an hour through a 70-mile zone. Circuit Judge Douglas W. Greene ruled that under Missouri law an officer cannot make arrests in a misdemeanor case unless he has a warrant or unless Plan Slight Crop Increase In State TOPEKA (AP)-Kansas farmers plan to plant slightly more crops this year than last but it will still be the second smallest total in the state for 35 years, the Kansas Crop and Livestock Reporting Service said today. March planting intentions showed moderate increases in corn and sorghum. These more than offset decreases indicated for soybeans, oats and barley. Acreage of major crops for 1963, including spring planted, fall seeded grains remaining for harvest and hay to be cut, is expected to total 19.5 million compared to 19.3 million last year and a five-year average of 21.1 million. Party Punch Gal. Jug — 65c We Deliver SELECT DAIRY CH 2-1607 The small total acreage this year is attributable to diversion of cropland to conservation uses under the wheat stabilization, feed-grain and soil bank conservation reserve programs. Planted acreage of major feed grain crops, including sorghum, corn, barley and oats, is expected to total 7,204,000, 2 per cent more than last year. The intentions: sorghum 4,354,000 acres; corn !,• 653,000 acres; oat 416,000; and barley 781,000. Prospective soybean plantings are reported at 899,000 acres, 4 per cent less than 1962 but 84 per cent larger than the average. Potato acreage is expected to total 2,600, down 4 per cent, and sweet potatoes, 1,500 acres. Sugar beet growers have indicated 15,000 acres. Kansas farmers plan to harvest 2,216,000 acres of all kinds of hay this year, the same as last year and 4 per cent higher than the five-year average. the offense was committed in his presence. Another speeding case in which the patrol used radar was dismissed Thursday by James Sivils, assistant prosecutor. He said the arresting officer didn't see the speeding. "We felt we didn't have a case under Judge Greene's ruling,' Sivils said. Co. Waggoner said he will try again to get a bill introduced in the Legislature to legalize air plane spotting in the interest o safety. "Lots of the cars we catch are traveling 115 to 120 miles an hour," Waggoner said. "Chasing them is not only hazardous to the pursuer and the pursued, but to other motorists also." He said 2,500 of the patrol's 18,00 speeding arrests last year were made through the air-to- ground method. he sources of power; how to achieve justice for the downtrod- len and the victimized. There was once a preacher in our city who had spent years rying to figure out how long the )ody might lay in the grave be- ore the spirit came to consciousness again, after death. And there was that big Bible class that refused to allow a speaker to take five minutes of heir time to tell them about an nsidious danger that lurked in certain proposition upon which he people were to vote that day, n the balloting booths. I am afraid we do not have time," the president of the class explained, very courteously. "You see, we have a very important lesson this week. We are studying the wheels of Ezekiel." It is said that the great Daniel Webster was once asked, "What is the most sobering question you have every considered?" To which he replied, "My obligation to Almighty God." John Gunther, one of the greatest of the journalists, has a question he puts to every famous person he interviews "What is it that you most surely believe?" In the course of one of his visits to England he made an appointment to see Harold McMillan, the Prime Minister. And as soon as it was possible for him to ask any question, he asked his great one. He had expected to hear the head of the great British Regardless of any man's opinion concerning the economic theories or social philosophy of Harold McMillan, there is enormous encouragement in that re- piy- Of course another question immediately leaps to our lips. "What does it mean to believe in God?" There's enough in that question to keep us answering for the rest of our life. But no man, however, ignorant or however wise he may be, will ever be the same, after he has spent one hour wrestling with these two questions. They take our measure.
