The theme for the sermon will be "Lights in the World." It has many times been said that Ihristians are the world's Bible. There are those who have never read a word from the- Old or New Testament who read the Gospel as it is portrayed in the life of the Christian. Their opinions of Christ and His kingdom arc molded by ;he actions of those who cal themselves Christians. Christ once said: "I am the light of the world,' but He has also declared to His followers: "Ye are the light of the world," May the lights of Chris, tianity brightly shine in the lives of the followers of Christ! donated more than a million books to the armed forces. It is expected that an equal amount will be raised this year. * * * The wise foreigner does no*" ask personal questions of the Chinese, Vanya Oakes, author of "White Man's Folly," learned in her tour through China. Once she mad the mistake of asking an ancient Chinese on a railroad how old he was, "Me?" he said. "Yes, you.' "How old?" "Yes, how old.' "How old am 11" "Yes, how old are you?" At this stage of the conversation, a large crowd of bystander? had collected. A wave of chatter and laughter rose. The question was tossed from one to another, more people running up to join in the discussion. The old man pro_ vided each newcomer with a strict account of events up to that mo_ ment, all rather in the vein that I the town had suddenly unaccount^ ably been visited by a crazy person from the West with a peculiarity of wishing to know crazy thing's such as how old one was. When Miss Oakes' train finally arrived and she had got herself safely aboard it, the crowd at the station was still working on the problem. · » » The contrast in the way the Japanese and the Americans treated their exchange prisoners is shown in this story, told by Max Hill in "Exchange Ship": At the Post of Laurenco Marques, in Africa, three exchange ships were docked. One of these was the Gripsholm, carrying Japanese internes from America; the othe r two were the Asama and^ Conte Verde, bearing American and English internes from Japan Through the dock barriers, two small boys exchanged comments --an American boy, born in China and a Japanese boy born in th. United States. "Gee," the AmerL can boy exclaimed, "I'll be glai to get some candy again. didn't have anything on the Conte Verde kids like." "Gosh!' the Japanese boy replied. "We hac movies and ice cream' and chewi.ig gum and candy and swimming pools." He paused and shook his head, and then added: "You sure got gypped!" [ and Wbcr hit for consecu_'Feb. 26.
