He has arranged for several hundred of them to go to various Nebraska farms, working throughout the winter at farm chores in return for pieir room and board; ami most of the • J!mployers promised to pay the men regular wages when thu spring season opens. j,In this way approximately 100 men a month were kept from hunger and cold throughout the winter; and the judge, naturally enough, has drawn a goftd deal of praise for his practical solution of a tough problem. However, it is quite possible to pom- out too much praise for this scheme. The judge is to be commended for arranging things in the way lie did, of course; but admiration for his ingenuity ought not to blind us to the fact that the whole thing, at best, is only a pitiable makeshift. .'-. That is the trouble with all of these ijiaris for unemployment relief. When they'\vorlc out we'll,'Nv'eai'e apt to get' too satisfied with them—apt to feel that because they are working sso well we need not worry very much about the general question of unemployment. The problem of the unemployed work. cr, in fact,-is probably'the biggest prob- • lem the nation faces today; and it is ,. not a will be ended when prosperity returns and the men go back to work. Fin- utir present economic system seems to call for recurring waves of unemployment.' It seems to be fated, •under the present dispensation, that poverty anil hunger shall descend on millions of Americans every eight or 10 years. But because we have a few ycai-j of prosperity between these depressions, and because, when the depressions come, clever stunts are devised to ward off actual starvation, we manage to prcteild that the problem is not, after all, so very pressing. What have these jobless Nebraska men been given, anyway? A chance to work all winter long for no pay; a chance to give the best efforts they have in order to keep from starving or freezing to death. They gel, in other words, the absolute minimum; and it is not taking anything away from the in- 01 IT OUR WAY telligcncc and kindness of this judjje to say that they arc nol gelling nearly enough. The danger Hint confronts us now is that we inny be too easily satisfied. It is not enough (o know that hungry men have been kept from dying. The defects in our civilization which put them in danger'of dying in the first place still remain; and until we have made n determined and whole-hearted effort to remove those defects we can have no excuse for feeling that things arc being miuuigcd properly. 28, 1931 1 h ree-way Co-opera t ion The new Mead Johnson three-way terminal at Evnmville, Indiana on Ihc Ohio has had n busy month since it inaugurated service late in February, providing terminal nncl transfer facilities for barge line, railroads, and buses. A considerable, business between the C. nnd E, I. railroad, whose terminus Is at Kvansvllle and the Mississippi Valley liarge Linus and American Barge Lines, l.n announced by J. 11.

"Tho trulllc provided \u> us a icsull of our cooperation with the barge lines tliruuijh llic Mead Johnson terminal has fullllled my expectations," said Mr'. Ford to a representative of MID Mississippi Valley Association on Thursday. "We arc gelling borne very yoo:l business from llic barge lines and we arc giving them considerable also. Mainly we got sugar, colfce, canned goods, tobacco, lean 1 , and fluorspar, alt of which comes straight up the river from Now Orleans to the terminal at Evansvllle. Hcccntly we got ;i ten-cur shipment of Insulating cork which came to out cars at Evansville all the way from Spain by water vln New Orleans. I believe this three-way terminal Is uolng to develop Into one of om- most active Includes. "You realize, of course, that thorough co-ordination of lallrcnds and barge linu service cannot come about overnight, but 1 believe it can be worked out. over n period of time. And we have made a good beginning with Ihi:; Mead Johnson terminal." —Helena World.

Weil sir, I joined the Church when 1 was unite small, and without tilling my age I must say that was quite: some time back. I've been consistanl in my Church relation, or at least I think so. 1 was telling a young Iriend of mine that 1 found so much difference in the way our Church was run in those days and the way they run them now. I think the old method was the best. There arc many rcasuns why I think this. First, the expense was not quite so great. Then there was not so much work to do. Our 1'rcachcr usually ha3 some kind ot employment during punched on Sunday. the week and I don't recall and slionidcr bhile. sustained in :'.

I remember one time we had a very small preacher, or rather,a. small man for our Preacher, and it was almost impossible for us to find any member or friend'of our Church whose do!lies would fit this Preacher. Of course, you understand that these clothes were for him to wear week days while at his work. Nov.-. as to buildings. In those clays we didn't pay so much attention to buildings, just so they were fairly comfortable. You know the- very best Church Members only spend a fe\v hours a i year in Church building. That's^ ( ( why I can't understand why so / much money is spent on buildings. Why I know ot one Church where they spent more money ori a building they called a Sunday school plant, than we' spent on our Church, equipment, ; running expense including Preacher's salary, for the first twenty years.
