Sperry for the Federal Council of Churches of Christ in America. Fifth Week--"Kidred Christian Virtues." CLEANSING THE TEMPLE Monday in Holy ,\Vtck, March 2. "My house shall be called, of Venations the house of prayer." ead Mark 11:15-10. ' ' ; A great deal of the world's 'ork has to be devoted to the elemental business of keeping clean. From time immemorial m a n has been familiar with the idea of uncleannesses which separate him f r o m God a n d t h e -comm a n d "Be ye clean" has been heard in every religion. Jesus w a s a c o m p a r a t i ve stranger to Jerusalem. He had Dr. Sperry. probably ideal- zed the temple. The situation vhich confronted him on Monday f Holy Week, was so far removed rom -the ideal that his righteous ndignation broke out in stormy rotest. Whether he used "physical "orce" and if so, to what degree, ve do not know. The gospels vary n their account of the incident. Let us not lose sight of the major ruth of the narrative--churches unless they are vigilantly watched ecome contaminated by interests vhich are no part of their rea! concern. The first business ol every church is with the lives, standards, practices of its own members. May it well be that the neffectuality of. the Church in the vorld of today is due to the presence in it of too many cohsidera- ions which are no part of the Christian religion? Prayer: Almighty God, Who hast called us to be Thy temples and Who hast not given us up to uncleanness, grant that the holy )laces of the inner man and the vails of our churches may harbor nothing unworthy of Thy worship or alien to Thy service; through "esus Christ. Amen. HEAVY COST OF CRIME POINTED OUT BY G-MAN Tells Rotary Club $125 Per Capita Charge for Crime.

One of the Bible citations read: 'When thou hast eaten and art full, then thou shalt bless the Lord thy God for the good land which he hath given thee. Bewore that thou forget not the Lord thy God, in not keeping his commandments, and his judgments, and his statutes, which I command thee this day:. But thou shalt i-emem- ber the Lord thy God; for it is he that giveth thee power to' gel wealth, that he may establish his covenant .which he swore xinto thy fathers, as it is this day.' (Deut. 8:10, 11, 18.) Among the selections from the Christian Science textbook was the following: "Dost thou 'love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind?'
