Christian Science Churches The subject of the lesson-sermon in all Churches of Christ, Scientist, for Sunday, June 30, 1946, Is "Christian Science." The golden text is "Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; como ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price." (Isa. 65:1) Selections from the Bible and from "Science and Health with Key to tKe Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy comprise tho lesson-sermon. One of the Bible citations reads: "Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men ghther grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit ia hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them." (Matt. 7.18-20) From the Christian Science textbook Is the following: "No human pen nor tongue taught me the Science contained In this book, SCIENCE AND HEALTH; and neither tongue nor pen can overthrow It. This book may be distorted by shallow criticism or by careless or malicious students, and its ideas may be temporarily abused and misrepresented; but the Science and truth therein will forever remain to be discerned and demonstrated."

H. J. MEYER, Manager Telephone 196 surprising index of the way shortages ndd up to make n continued subtraction from the total of our national economy. The Federal Government, according to these figures, bought 20 percent of all butter production in May for tho use of the Armed Forces. On tho basis of a total service force of 5,000,000, this would mean that each man In the service is getting six times more butter than the average citizen. Carrying the equation further, this means that each man in the service is getting as much as six persons in civilian life. Or, if it came to total subtraction, then six persons in civilian life would have to go without • butter to make sure that each man in. the service had his share. Actually, what this sort of equation eventually means is not the value of the butter, but the relative value of human beings. It seems like stretching the idea of democracy to the limit to say that each man in the service is worth as much as six civilians. Yet this is the usual equation of an armed stale, where the value of power eventually out-weighs the value of reason.

Some of the humorous implications of tomorrow's world of "walkie-talk­ ies" and two-way radios for this and that and sundry purposes can be found in the growing preference of returned war veterans for the taxicab business. If the drivers happen to be ex-Air Force members some of the jargon turned loose when two-way radios are standard taxicab equipment will be difficult to decipher. Here's how Richard G. Kendall, who does a "journeyman's" column of comment for the Gannett papers, pictures the dialogue: "Three, six, one, Five to X-five, one three. Over." "This is X-five, one three. Come in, please." "Look, George, a '27 Ford coming in | at 3 o'clock." "Roger. Cover me in case I miss his | fender." "Wilco. Go in after him." WRONG PROPORTION.
