HELPFULNESS AND COMPASSION The '•helps" in th,e early Christian Church, to whom the postle Paul refers in I Corinthians 12:28, were probably some who were »r- ticularly helpful toward fellow- Christians, or others, in need of some form ot aid or encouragement. But there is another form of hclpiulness with a pronounced social aspect, in which "helps" are as greatly needed in our world of today as they were needed in that ancient day of the Church. It is clear from various passages in the New Testament that, strange to say, there were two classes, or two attitudes, among those early Christians. To some their allegiance to Christ, and their place in the Church, meant giving all that they had. They were the pure and beautiful souls, that led men to exclaim, "Behold how .these Christians love one another!" But there were others (See II Thessalonians 3:10), who were in the Church for what they could get out ofit. It seems strange that anyone should have joined a group like those early Christians except from faith and strong convictions, but apparently there'were those, who finding Christians full of brotherly love and helpfulness took advantage of the genuine Christians to loaf and expect others to keep them. This situation evidently became so acute that Paul, himself a very independent -minded and self- suporting worker, came down with severity upon these grafters. He declared in no uncertain terms that if a man among them did not work, neither should he eat. It was in the same spirit, and perhaps with a similar situation in mind that, almost in the same breath, Paul declared fGalatians 6:2 and 5) that Christians should fulfill the law of Christ by bearing one another's burdens, but also that "every man shall bear his own burden." Some years i.j,o an. Englishman, William Ward, wrote a book entitled "How Can I Help England-" Mr. Ward was a leader in the P. S. A. (Pleasant Sunday Afternoon) Movement which held great "brotherhood" meetings for men in various cities of England and Canada. Mr. Ward took his title, and apparently his theme and inspiration, from a brief poem by Robert Browning, "Home Thoughts From The Sea." The poet at sea and desperately sick, .nevertheless wished to be carrier! on deck as the ship neared Gibralter, and "full in face Trafalgar lay." In the poem as he surveys the scene of Britain's great naval victories is the line, "Here and here did England help me. how can I help England? — say, "Whoso turns as I, this evening, turn to God to praise and pray." Surely it might be a fitting question , and prayer translated by every man into his own particular land and situation, who feels a debt to his heritage, and who would be a giver rather than a getter in a world in need.

M. Kentucky to Adlai By 1,047 Votes By AitsctiM Pr*«s LOUISVILLE, Ky.—Kentucky's 10 presidential electoral votes unofficially belonged to Democrat Adlai Stevenson today by a shaky margin of 1,047 votes. His claim on them is good at least until about Nov. 15 when the officia'' tabulation begins. Whether Stevenson keeps them or whether they go to Republican Dwight D- Eisenhower depends a lot upon absentee ballots. Many were not included in the unofficial count. The final unofficial totals from Kentucky's 4,135 precincts in Tuesday's election read: Stevnson 494,109. Eisenhower 493,062.
