Sunday School Lesson Not Having A Ball In Living Wickedly By ROY L SMITH The Uniform Sunday School lesson for April 21: "PSALMS IN WORSHIP AND LIFE," Psalms 1; 15; 73, A false impression is abroad, especially on college campuses, to the effect that it is the reckless, the heedless, the wicked— those without have the good convictions—who times in life, and that the clean, the virtuous, the people who live by a great faith, are the ones who suffer from dullness. As a matter of fact the reverse is true, of course, but it is only those w h c look below the surface who re alire it. Some year ago 1 was : member of a : grand jury that was trying to clean up a vicious situation that existed in our state. There was one character who was generally conceded to be the leader of the vice .forces, and we were particularly anxious to get our hands on him. One afternoon, in the midst of a terrible blizzard, my doorbell rang, and when I opened the door I was confronted by a man whose face was completely covered by the collar of his overcoat, wearing dark glasses. I invited him in out of the storm, and he hesitated. When I urged him, he said, "Maybe you , will not want me to come in when you know who I am." Then he told me he was the man we' were hunting for. Alongside my fire, he opened up and told his story, "I am sick and tired of sin," he said. "I'm ,1 going to give myself up. But I ''-, wanted to talk to a man of God "before I did it." ^ .With that he began describing : the facts of life as a criminal ^ faced them. '$ He did not dare carry an ac- itrcount at the bank, his wife did *»not dare.have a charge account, Ifche could never go to a ball game '£\vith his ten-year-old son, he could jjHiot belong to a lunch club, he |had to divide the loot with a |dozen accomplices everytime he fumade a haul," he could not ^subscribe to a magazine, he could f not register at any hotel under |his own name. | As he described his handicaps git sounded as if he were the most f terribly imprisoned man in the Sworld. § "If you ever get a chance," he said, "tell every little punky kid in this town that there isn't three minutes of fun in any 24 hours, living the way I do." Yet he was a "big shot." He stood at the top of his profession. Hundreds rushed to do his bidding. He was the "vice-lord" of a state. But he was a man imprisoned by his own evil. This is no new discovery. An old Hebrew Psalmist recognized the situation at least 2,500 years ago, and put the warning into unforgettable words which have been placed at the masthead of 1he Book of Psalms in the Old Testament. "Like the chaff that the wind driveth away." "The wicked will not stand up in the judgment." "The way of the wicked shall perish." (Psalm 1:4-6 RSV) How often we hear it said, 'There ought to be a law." As if there were an evil that is outside he law. One of the first lessons upon which good religion insists is he fact that we are living in a universe that is under the authority of law. There is no escaping it. The first objective of the chemist is to find the law that governs among the molecules. Fhe physicist cannot rest until he cnows the laws that govern inside the atom. The psychologist las made his greatest contribution by explaining the laws by which the human mind operates. And the same principle holds true in morals, within the human spirit, and throughout all of life. If we know the law, we are in a position to establish mastery. And mastery means success, achievement, peace of mind, happiness! None of these things are accidents. One does not develop serenity because he is lucky, nor does he enjoy the respect of the Community by accident. Such things are determined by law, ust as is the stability of a wall, the dependability of a molecule, or the permanency of a chemical compound, and the reliability of a mathematical formula.

Main CH 2-5241 This world does not need a nevr religion. The great basics of the law of life were explained thousands of years ago by the Hebrew prophets. They had discovered the way life works, and they warned us that wickedness does not work. It is not a matter of theology, but of practical experience. Any man can prove the case, if he is unwilling to accept the judgments of the psalmists. The criminal at my door had tried to go another way, but he had discovered that the psalmists were right. Especially this first Psalmist. Lucky is the man whose delight is in the law of the Lord. Women Voters Ask Changes LAWRENCE (AP) - Recommendations for changes in the Kansas court system have been approved by the directors of the League of Women Voters of Kansas. The action was reported by the board Wednesday prior to opening of the annual two-day state convention of the league. Officers will be elected today. The approval reflects state-wide League opinion, the board said and comes after a two-year study of the judicial system by league members. Proposed changes backed by the board include: The appointive-elective method of selecting judges, extending the method of choosing Supreme Court judges to the district courts. A requirement that all judges be attorneys; a unified court sys tern; abolition of the justice of 'Hollywood Gone To The Horses 9 SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Actress Joan Crawford, who admits to being 54, Wednesday gave her opinion of what's wrong with Hollywood. "It's gone to the horses." she said. Miss Crawford declared in an interview, "It's pathetic. There was a day when the stars had class, style and sweep. Now we have epics that feature horses."
