Dr. Hager spoke Monday afternoon on "The Amazing Power of Unbelief," and his subject last night was "The Primacy of Faith," with text from II Peter 1:1, "Like precious faith with us." He said, in part: "Peter used the word 'precious' more than any of the other writers of scripture. Faith is the starting point of Christian life.'It precedes everything else. 'No faith' equals 'no Christian.' Faith has no virtue in itself; it is just the funnel through which the blessings come to you and me, one of these blessings being peace. Poise, power, purity and progress are other blessings obtained by means of real scriptural faith. "Another reason the Christian faith is precious is because it is scarce, and all scarce things are precious. The church Is principally a witnessing institution, and we cannot witness unless we have faith. The world is staggering tonight, drunk with the power of unbelief. Let us resolve to keep the faith."

Mayor Miller brings to mind the fighting men the world over, "who are giving the last ounce of their strength in the effort to free the world of dictatorships; while on the home front war industries are being carried on by manpower, which stands behind the armed forces." He calls attention to the service the Red Cross is giving the fighting men overseas and at home, "through friendly understanding of trained men and women"; r ' the assistance the Red Cross gives to families of servicemen; to the 10,000,000 pints of blood given for the wounded by American people, Uirough the Red Cross.

Bowles Hopes To Bring Down Price Of Clothing Washington, Feb. 27.—(#•)—Price Administrator Chester Bowles told congress today he hoped to bring down prices of clothing 6 to 7 per cent by next August. "They are at the top of our order of business," he testified before the senate banking committee. "It Is here that we have had our most dangerous increase In living costs since the hold the line order became effective." "While the average prices of all items going into the cost of living have Increased only 1.5 per cent, clothing prices have increased 11.6 per cent in addition to market quality deterioration. "Because clothing accounts for about 13 per cent of all living costs, this Increase In clothing casts has contributed nearly all of the Increase found in total living costs of low and middle income families." Bowles appeared in support of legislation to extend the price control and stabilization net until Dec. 31, 1946. It Is now d'te to expire next June 30. The price administrator said he saw scant chance for any reduction In food prices, adding that they now are "pretty well tailored to cost conditions."

These, he said, were $4,000,000,000 in 1030 and $810,000,000,000, in 1944. Business failures, ho stated were at an all time low In 1044 with 1,221 businesses falling compared with 14,76« In 1039. He told the committee; "The gasoline black market although still troublesome, has diminished considerably since I last reported to you a year ago.
