Read Hebrews 6:11-20. In one of his sonnets George Meredith says: What dusty answer gels the soul, When hot for certainties in this our life. Though the dust of uncertainty is often in our eyes all of us have our "moral certainties." They are j u d g m ents o f value and confidence in particular persons. We c a n n o t prove them by any logical means, but we are q u i t e ready to live by them. Whatever difficulties may attend its theology, the Christian religion in its simpler form falls within this ar.ea. Saint John's Gos- DR. SPERR.Y pel has a sentence beginning, "We believe and are sure . . . " The two words secrn at first mutually exclusive, yet such is the sequence of experience. The more honestly you try to live a Christian life the more certain you are that you are on the right track. Mr. George Bernard Shaw is neither a churchman nor a theologian, but he has said that while we crucified Christ on a stick, Christ managed to get hold of the right end of that stick. Prayer: Almighty God, whose kingdom and whose promises are sure, and who wiliest that thy people dwell in a safe place, vouchsafe to us through all life's storms a sure anchor for our souls: Through Jesus Christ our Lord.

It is important that the taxpayer render on or before the due date, which is March 15 if the return is filed on the calendar year basis, a return of income as nearly complete and final as it is possible for him to prepare. However, when by reason of illness, absence from home, inability to secure the necessary data, or for other good and sufficient reasons additional time is required, a reasonable extension of time may be granted. Application should be made in writing to the collector of internal revenue for the district in which the taxpayer files his returns on or before the due date of the return, a full recital of the causes for the delay being given. Except in the case of taxpayers who are abroad, no extension may be granted for a period of more than 6 months. An extension of time for filing the return does not extend the time for payment of the tax, or any installment thereof, unless so specified in the extension. Application for an extension of time for payment of the tax or any installment thereof should be made on form 1127 to the Commissioner of Internal Revenue through the collector of internal revenue for the district in which the taxpayer's return is filed. The applicant should set forth under oath the specific reason for desiring an extension and should clearly indicate what hardship, if any, would result if the extension were riot granted.
