TUESDAY, JANUARY 4,193S. i'HK DAILY COURIER, C()NNJSL,LtoVLULU, FA. PAGE THREW; Rabbi Urges Devotion To National Ideals; Speaks at Inaugural Jewish Church Leader Recalls Visions of *·" Founding Fathers. ASKS BLESS INGS ON CITY SOLONS A devotion to the ideals for which this country stands was urged by Rabbi I M Waldon as he asked for V- Divine Guidance for the city administration Monday when Mayor Ira D Younkin, Councilman Abe I Daniels and Controller Fred W. Ncuroth received their oaths ot office Rabbi Waldon said: "America was born of the desire for liberty. It was reared by men who had the greatest passion for freedom and was conceived by those who yearned to worship God according to the dic'atcs of their own conscience. Hither came the dovvn- trodder of al! races. Hither came the persecuted who sought the opportunity to be once more men "They saw floating upon the air a flag that spoke to them of equal rights, that said 'under my shadow the strongest shall submit to law and the weakest shall have his rights defended' They saw a flag that said to the world 'free education, free opportunity, a chance to all' They saw here a land of blessed promise They saw here the evidences of human independence and they heard of that mighty document, 'the Declaration of Independence' "In this day of stress when many countries are reverting back to tyrann, depotism and prejudice it is good to be mindful of our democratic V institutions of government and to invoke the guidance of God for the future courses "In our day man's hard-won victories are being challenged and endangered In manj lands the state has become idolized instead of being a means which a people sets up in order that it might live securely and in an orderly fashion "Consequently dreams of national x grandeur and expansion have be* come the obsession of the men who are the rulers of such states In order to achieve them wars must be waged Death, devastation and misery lie in their paths "That is why at a time when we inaugurate our leaders into office it is good to ponder and consider well the path of the future and supplicate '~ God for His gracious blessings of understanding and discernment "Our founding fathers believed that the people were capable of governing themselves. They realized that this nation was called into existence to give a now trend to humanity, ' This thought is expressed in a statement made by the rabbis of old. They said 'The will of the majority is an expression of the will of God' They who assume leadership in a community through the expression of the majority of its inhabitants hold that position by the will and grace of God 1 Let us pray that our patriotism to our country and loyalty to our community be more than for soil upon / which we stand. Although there is something within the human heart f that attracts us to the place of our birth, love of country is something higher than love of place. It means devotion, devotion to the ideals for which the country stands. We of America love our land but yet more should we love the ideals for which this land stand 1 ; May God bestow His blessings upon our mayor and "councilmen and annoint them with % His gifts of insight and courage, of health and peace" NEWS OF THE COURTS Wreckage of "Pky House" in Which Boy Died UNIONTOWN, Jan 4 --Emory Vargo, Point Marion, on a charge ot desertion on or about April 17, 1935, won a divorce from Trcssa Vargo, also of Point Marion They were wed February 13, 1928, in Oakland, Md.

NST JAPS ES CHINA By EDWARD W BEATT1E United Press Staff Coi respondent. SHANGHAI, Jan 4 --A new Chinese government, pledged to a imiih flght against the Japanese, rc- Icaicd all political priboners Monday, oidered an intensification ot guerrilla warfaie and opened an ajrplane jombir.g campaign against Japanese eld areas. One of the first acts of the govern- -nent, headed now by Dr. H H Kung s president of the executive yuan, ir cabinet, and finance minister was o order reformatories throughout China emptied Prisoners in these nstttutionb aic almobt all pohtcal, md the political prisoners in turn arc ilmost all communists This move marked the close co- pcration, in face of the Japanese v,ir, among elements in China who lad fought each other for ycaia. Nevertheless, Chinese said, the new government did not r-ark a turn oward the left but on the contrary was i turn to the right and a victory for more conservative elements The principal effect of a change o£ government by which power was centralized and Generalissimo Chiang Kai-Shek, commander in chief of the jrmies, relinquished the executive yuan leadership to his brothcr-m- iw.

"I've been auctioneering for 20 years," says Mr. Cooper, "in Georgia, North Carolina and Tennessee...and I've seen the tobacco Lucky Strike buys at auction after auction. It's the best in smoking quality. Bob Cooper -- tobacco auctioneer --tells why he, and other tobacco experts, prefer Luckies ... "Luckies suit my throat, too, as well as my taste. Even after crying out bids 7 hours a day, Luckies never bother my throat in the least." (Reason: th'e exclusive "Toasting" process expels certain irritants found in all tobacco.) "In every section of the Tobacco Belt where Iauctioneer,"Mr.Cooperadds,"I've noticed tobacco men smoking Luckies." Are you benefiting by the experience of the tobacco experts?... Sworn records show that among independent tobacco experts, Luckies have twice, yes--twice, as many exclusive smokers as have all other cigarettes combined. C
