From Peter's counsel coniwnliig the Chilstian life, and his sustaining help to his, fellow Christians suffeiing pciiccullon, we turn now to another great leader or the church,, the apostle John. Here, too, we are impressed with the unity of the Neiv Testament Writers In the portrayal of the nature of the Christian life, H S .sources, and Its power. If peter ami Paul, despite Iheir differences on nilroi mailers, \uote almost identically of'the.Chrlsllnn life, Its mial- Illes and Its fruits, John also agrees In eveiylhlng (lint Is ossentlisl, though he gives lo cvoryllilug his own emphasis. Tlie emphasis Hint he gives is on love, and Inevitably we compare Paul's great chapter on low In I Corinthians IS. John's letters, like Paul's, make love supreme, and what, John has written might be well regarded as a further exposition of Paul's chapter on love. The student or New Testament literature is well nv/nrc of the qn??- tions concerning the authorship both of the Fourth.Gospel and of Ihe Epistles attributed to John. He knows, too, that some reverent scholars think there Is evidence of the early martyrdom of John, con- Irnry to the tradition thnt he lived to a great old age and wns a beloved leader in the church nt Ephcsus. Bo.Ui John's Gospel and the Epistles so thoroughly express Imth the letter and spirit of cintsltnn- ity, as these are expressed elsewhere In the New Testament, that the problems of authorship which are a rightful concern of scholars need hardly affect the 'iivrr.ige reader. If.we found the writings attributed • to Jonn oxpressl:V something, nt.variance with whal Mntllwiv, and Mark, nml Luke, and Peter, nnd Paul had wrlltcn, then we might well be concerned atoll their authorship and authenticity For out 1 part, we hold to the belief thai it Li John, (lie Moved apostle, who Is speaking, and he speaks as n. great apostle of brotherly love, lie Is'plain and practical. Love is not n mere' sentiment, it Is the iiower so domlimt- Inglhc Christian life that It Is lite evidence of the life ilself, "Wo know -that we have passed from death unto life because we love the brelhern." Ami It was this John who at one lime would have had Jesus call ivn fire from heaven and con- Mime Ihe people of a village'who had treated his Master with unfriendly eninlty. How much John had learned, and what a new man lie himself had become! Ho coiM well say that to be a Christian meant to pass from death unto life. Ami what happened lo him was an evidence , of tlie power that could nifikc men perfect through love, John agrees with Pctor that man may bo n partaker of Ihe divine nature. i.a COULDN'T BE MUCH FRESHER IF IT FLEW TO YOU . .;. .

Today, when loo many of us suffer from emotional stomachache ttiii.wil liy our mlsurulerstaiKl- itig the food crisis, a little more patience nnd n great deal more oatmeal may improve the national digestion. -The Department of Agriculture pessimistically has reported that ;:rops are now less promising than at any olhcr lime in the last three years. Former President Hoover has declared that we must put 50 million more acres under cultivation or be hungry in l!)44. 'Hie International Food Conference's report announced that there isn't enough food in the world today (o feed all of us adequately. Sud: .statements are discouraging, am] so is the failure of the consumer public to back up the OPA's fight to "hold the line" for them through rationing and price ceilings. Even if our 1943 crops should lappcn to be large as the 10J2 record, which Chester C. Davis, War P'liod Administrator, thinks they nay lie, given average weather and other breaks from now on, we still would be unable to cat as usual. War — not floods, storms, misadministration, political quarrels, or ^difference of consumers—is the irat cause of our present food sit- mlion. The number of moulhs to >e fed adequately has increased way beyond our increase in food production. The Army and Navy and Lcnd-Ucnsc will need 25 per cent of our food this year. We are now- feeding North Africa. In n few weeks we may be feeding the demoralized populations of Italy and other liberated countries. Steadily, thousands ol war prisoners are being shipped here. Also that one- third of our population which formerly did not get enough lo eal is now eating enough, due lo money earner! at war-created jots. NATIONAL DIET .MUST CHANGE Though none of us is enjoying a pre-war menu, there is no famine in sight. Hut n big change in our national diet is definitely in sight. That's where the oatmeal and patience come in. Oatmeal nnd the other whole- grain cercnls arc relatively abundant. They arc rich sources of minerals, vitamins and protein. Together wilh dried beans and peas, soybeans and peanuts, they can be used lo take up some of Ihe expected restriction, in civilian supplies of the complete protein foods such as meat, fowl, cheese, milk and eggs. Soybeans nre rich in fats and protein. They arc new to most (.f paring to put soybean flours, soups, muffin mixes nnd other products on the. market. Soybean flour griddle cakes may sooj! tfite the place of^ our breakfast bacon and eggs. It's not a prospect to make the mouth water. Hut it is a prospect lo hush the whimper of "famine." MEAT.I'OINT IllSE TO CONTINUE One State Emergency Pood Commission has developed two important cereal foods and a formula for a new type of bread wilh soybean flour nmong other nutrients Tlie Department of Agriculture's home economists beijan experiments on soybeans and whutcgrnln cereals for family menus years before Pearl Harbor. From the way tilings arc shaping up. you can expect .steadily higher point prices for meat, with the passible exception of ixirk for the lime being. Other sources of protein likely to be added to the ration list nre cges and milk, because n relative shortage in each is expected. The transition period in our change (o n war diet will require patience and Instruction. It cannot be a hit-or-miss affair. Our national re-education in eating will be based largely on ivork done by the Bureau of Human Nutrition and Home Economics, Department of Agriculture. This research nnd experiment bureau is bended by Dr. Henry c. Sherman nnd his as-' sktant Dr. Hazel K. Sticbeling. Stale uiid municipal nutrition committees also must give scientific advice on how to make the neiv available foods do the ,work of the old restricted foods Housewives, foot!" " processors, staffs of restaurants and cafeterias, public Institutions and schools will bo helped across the line by these scientists. "America Meeds Us Strong" 15,0110 of our war slogans. Expert guidance, plus patience nnd "onlmeal" cnn do the trick. So cheer up. We'll probably got to like the darned sluff. 60c Alka Seltzer 49c 1.25 New Peruna 98c Need Vitamins? . . .
