Doctor Malone said that success in life has been to the one who could possess the most. "Even science has taught that the world ends in physical mass," he said. "Today science sees everything as energy so that the scientist, Jeans, exclaims, 'The world begins to look like a thought instead of a hing.' 'Our old materialistic attitude s beginning to crumble and we re beginning to discover our piritual world which is in back f every reality. Our world is torn o pieces now because ot rulers nd men think the best thin it was tragically separated from "The hope of the world is in iding something which the changed.

Elsie Ramsey and Mabel Sherwood are the house committee, and Bertha Gould has charge of the program. An exchange o£ white elephants and games will be the evening's entertainment.

Wa-Tan-Ye will participate in the world wide fellowship dinner sponsored by the Business Girls' league of the Y. W. C. A. on Tuesday evening, March 21. Mrs. Charles Grippen was introduced by Miss Gould, program chairman, and reviewed "A Sense of Humus" by Bertha Damon. The book contains a round-by- round account of the author's long battle with the soil of her chill, rocky, but beloved New Hampshire. The book is witty and wise, so rich with the joys and sorrows of country living, of working with the hired man, of raising dogs, of visiting with the neighbors. Mrs. Grippen said, " 'A Sense o£ Humus' will delight anyone who has ever planted so much as a radish. Webster says 'humus' is a valuable constituent of soils. If the reader's own personal soil is winter chilled, war worn, tax parched, or just plain tired, 'A Sense of Humus' will do a- considerable good." Bertha Damon is past president of Federated Garden Clubs of S T ew Hampshire, founder of a tie world is material and posses- ion. "I believe it is a spiritual world ecause everything that is seen is aturated with the unseen." Doctor Vlalone pointed out that even omething as materialistic as a ity is the result of thought and energy. /'For sometime men h a v e .bought that the world could lardiy be the result of chance and accident," he said. "There is too much order in it for it to be the result of chance. Everything seen s controlled by the unseen. The world and everything in it is only a tool to be used by spiritual force. I f we live in that kind of a world, then why isn't prayer the most natural thing in the world? "So long as we abuse the principles on which this world is built, we will have trouble. All men are brothers and the color of thing without, but something within man. God cjmnot save, us from reality, but He can help us to be brave and to find spiritual resources within ourselves." Doctor Malone was presented by the Rev. Wilbur Dierking, pastor of the First Presbyterian church. --o-St. Joseph's C. Y. V.

A. M. Rogness officiating. The bridesmaid was Helen During of Osage, and the best man, Clyndon Christiansen of Manly. Both the bridesmaid and the best man are cousins of the bride. After the ceremony a luncheon was served at the home of the bride's aunt, Mrs. Anton Hossum at 801 Delaware N. E. with Mrs. Althon Rossum assitsing. Mr. and Mrs. Stibel are at home on a farm east of here and are working for Mr. Steeple of Nora Springs. George Cahalan, Eugene Lansing a skin is not a quality of the soul. The world has now become a neighborhood and we'll have to make it a brotherhood. In a spiritual world, the only way we can have success is to live by spiritual laws. "If we live in a spiritual wotld, then our thinking about eternal life is another corollary. Science ys that no matter is ever de- royed, but only changed in form. "At this faster time, I have a ·nviction that what we need is a cw meaning of the church. We .ust strengthen this only agency i earth which can teach us the ay in a spiritual world. Life is orth living only because it is not ad on easy terms. Life was made or action, struggle and victory lon't envy someone else his battle ight your own and win your own ictory. No one finds life worth ving, one must make it worth ving. "The church is still the bulwark f democracy. In the world into vhich Jesus was born, property vas worth more than a man. Int hat world, a new spiritual fore ntered."
