Stanley Jones, a Methodic missionary to India for many years, to unite all protfstant churches In a national assembly. Wlillf! his plan would retain present denomination-:, t>!••>• would become autonomous branches In th" a-wtnhly. Th" point of Interest Is that (here has been a quiot pnimenlcal movement !.i Malvern for many years a« "-.r.; . iii/!<-iis [pel that a single Btrong Jhiir. h would serve the reliplous needs of the community brtter than the present three churches whirh'mitst spend so much of their energies in the simple (hut necessary) job of keeping their doors open. The results of the recent religious census showed that there is plenty of work to keep three separate rhun-h'-s busy. On the other hand there is a creat body of sound evidence that up to the present time the three rhiirchrs have left a great many people nut of their sphere of Influence and perhaps comhinine the three denominations in n single strrmp, ('numerous church would meet the local need more fully than do the three at present. This latter possibility would be conditioned on n human element which perhaps is the cause for our rhurchps' lack of progress now — a tendency to (livid- on non-essentials and to want the other person to cure for the tough jobs. Possibly the single church could overcome this. R. I. dob GnpHt* of Mrs. Ken .fitrksoti Mrs. Ben Jackson entertained the Rural Improvement club at her home last Wednesday.

By a curious coincidence Mills county had examples both of racial prejudices and of interracial cooperation last week, perhaps the more curious because the county is BO very much of a single race that wo have little opportunity to learn of race problems. The affair at Pacific Junction, while the mayor of that community held that no racial prejudice •was involved, reminded us that there are many who have no liking for that part of our constitution which guarantees equal rights to all citizens. We are not unduly pessimistic but we believe there Is fully as much racial prejudice In Mills county — where seemingly none should develop — as in most other places. In contrast a group of singers from a Missls- Blppl school. Rust college for Negroes, gave concerts in Malvern and Glenwood and were courteously, even warmly, received. Folks who heard them liked their music for the colored folk have a gift for aong which adds charm to their concerts. Nor were the singers kept from public places and they had no difficulty finding sleeping accommodations. During the visit of the Rust college group we discussed the educational situation for colored people with one of its members. Rust is supported by northern people and she said: "Mississippi's schools for white students are poor, too. In neglecting schools for colored people they have also debased their other schools." Perhaps the thing that bothers discussions of racial prejudice more than anything else is the tendency for those who fivor "keeping Negroee in their place" to think only of the colored folk who have been bad or have failed to develop their possibilities. That is, those same characteristics in white folks are condoned but considered a damning feature when found in Negroes Wo'have no answer for our problem of racial prejudice. ISiU we feel that if we permitted Negroes to develop ill a sympathetic, congenial atmosphere, they would make good average citi- However, in the law suit which followed the inrid.nt at Pacific Junction (which was tried at fJlenwood Thursday morning) the issue was not that of racial prejudice but of unlawful assembly which, in non-legal parlance, means mob action. This, we feel, is of more basic importance and \vhil<> we may applaud the defendants Involved for their zeal in desiring equal rights for members of a. minority nice, we must recognize that, their method of obtaining such rights is highly dangerous. For law and order depend upon legal procedure and citizens should recognize that "due process of law" is fully as much protection for the minority as the majority. So if we do not like a public official (be he a small-town mayor or marshal or the president of the U. S.) we should not try to take mob action against him, but should take legal action to see that he enforce laws properly or else answer charges of malfeasance of office. Mob action will not correct social Ills and we have sufficient faith in our courts to believe that they will bring justice in every Instance if we use them with sufficient zeal and Intelligent effort. Kntcrtnln nt Family Dinner In Honor of CliicvtM Mr. and Mrs. A. H. Culver and Mrs. Mary Sawyers entertained at a family dinner compliment- Ing Mr. and Mrs. G. M. Culver of Seattle, Wash., and Mrs. G.

H T CO MiMILiY I FOLLOWING THE LEADER • An advertisement in The Toldeo Chronicle caught our eye this week — for the American Legion Stag and Fish Fry. In smaller type at the bottom of the ad was the cryptic statement: "Usual Entertainment." • The Leader's Want Ad department, after a little sound detective work, missed a profitable want ad a couple of weeks ago. Fred Cozad found a woman's purse and so brought it in to advertise It. But after search Frank Blggerstalt's fishing license was found in it and Corp. Heezalyre, who happened to be in on the affair, at once suggested that deductive reasoning be invoked, after which he concluded that possibly the purse belonged to Mrs, Biggerstaff. So Mr. C. contacted Mrs. B., the purse turning out to be hers and she was most pleased to have it back. SIGNS OF THI SEASON.. A nip in the air tells you it's lime to move back indoors.
