There were quite a few photographs of the natives w'th whom Dr. Williams occassionally made his home. s He said that the greatest danger in the jungle is getting lost. A person could wander 10 yards from a trail and never be able to find it again without the aid of a compass. The next greatest danger is being hit by falling trees or branches or by fruits liable to drop from great heights. He next listed poisonious snakes as to be the most feared. The danger fiom wild animals, contrary to general belief, Is practically nil. Because of difficulty In penetrating the jungle, supplies consisted chiefly of scientific equipment necessary to conduct experiments. For this reason, the party subsisted on what the jungle provided. Dr. Williams said he has eaten 117 monkeys and baboons. He lost count of the snakes, lizards, fried ants, bird eggs and many other things consumed during his several trips to the jungle. MRS.

DAY IN WASHINGTON BY DAVID LAWRENCE CHURCH OF GOD G. W. Byrnes, pastor, residence 1119 West Crawford nvenue. Buchanan--Sunday school, 10 A.

Continued from Page Four, cannot put through a bill friendly to the Negroes, then the Republicans will have a chance--at least so they think today--to call attention to it in the next campaign and perhaps win back he enormous number of Negro votes which used to be Republican but which deserted the G. O. P. in 1930. If the debate goes on, maybe there will be a record vote. When the time comes for the yeas and nays-if it ever docs come--the Republicans doubtless will, with few exceptions, vote for the measure so as to show the Negroes they are their staunch friends. The Northern Democrats will also vote for the bill. The Southern Democrats will be found in a separate group against the measure. The possibility that the bill might pass if the Republicans and Northern Democrats combine is such that the Southern Democrats arc trying to talk the measure to death by prolonged dbate. This is government by minority, but it Is often resorted to as a protection against Insincerity on the part of the-majority. In this instance, doubtless, most of those who will vote for the measure do not believe it is constitutional or practical cither. Some parliamentary device, no doubt, will be "developed soon to get rid of the anti-lynching bill through a motion to lay it on the table or to send it back to committee for further study--cither plan being calculated to enable a Northern Democratic senator to say to Negro mnss meetings next fall that he did his utmost to get the bill enacted, but that other senaors prevened this from happening. The business of the United States must go on ond members are frankly tired of the long filibustering debate, but politics must be served. Ways and means must be devised, apparently, to take care of political plots and conspiracies that may loom large in the autumn campaign, especially in close districts. The Negro has for many years been n Republican voter. During 193C, there were substantial defections, and. In some states, the Negroes voted the Democratic ticket by a ratio of nearly two to one. The Negroes, however, followed the general trend, which, at the time, was based upon the belief that the Roosevelt Administration had brought real prosperity. A huge proportion ot the N'egro voters were on WPA Jobs or had been benefittcd by relief, especially In the northern cities. The Democrats organized this vote very e.Ti'ctivcly. The northern senators on the Democrntic ticket need this vote In November, 1938. to Ret re- clcctcd. The Republicans nrcd II badly to £et their accustomed strength of the post. Hence all the maneuvering imc politiciil debating that ha* occupied he United States Senate since early this month. As for the development of a public sentiment within the Southern states to prevent further ynchings or to bring to the bar of ustice those who clandestinely par- .icipate in them, it is doubtful whether much has been accomplished. More could be done by exposure through the powerful inevsti- ?ation procedute of United States Senate committees ond attendant publicity than by n inw that would be almost Impossible of enforcement and would not rcuc!, to the root of the problem--the dilatory processes of the law in administering punishment to those guilty of heinous crimes. Small Business Man, With Human Machine Plan, At Washington Continued from Pago One. after they leave high school; a pe:.- sion plan for the old and feeble. He said he became concerned about the "machine" problem 14 years ago when he worked in a candy factory. The owner bought a machine that cost 17 workers their jobs. "In my plan," he said, "all machines would be regulated by the Government. We would install steam, electric and time meters which would allow the machines to run just so fast and no faster." The youths, he said, would be required to go to camp for three years and would be paid on discharge at the rate of $1 per day. "That would mean," he said, "that every young person in the country at the nge of 21 would have ?1,000 cash. That's $2,000 u couple and doubtlessly would encourage early ma triages." All in all, he said, lelief could be stopped, social security abandoned and labor unions disbanded. The latter, he added, wouldn't be necessary. Three Births at Hospital. Three babies were born thii mom- ing at Connellsville State Hospital. A daughter arrived at 5:10 o'clock to Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Bceghley of New street, South Connellsville; at 8:24 o'clock there was a daughter for Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Hair of Dunbar, and at 9:22 o'clock a son was born to Mi. and Mrs. T.

Girl Evangelist Closes Campaign Sunday Evening "Our Lord's Return" will be tile theme of Betty Wcakland's message) tonight in the First Baptibt Church, j There are various and contradictory views as to what constitutes the second coming of Christ and the preacher has announced that she will reveal what she believes the Bible teaches concerning this important subject. The evangelistic campaign, which has been in progress for the past two weeks, will close with four services Sunday. At 10:45 o'clock Dr. J*. Roy Fcakland will occupy the pulpit of Rev. A. R. Mansberger in Uie F i r s t Methodist Protestant Church nnd at 11 o'clock Miss Weakland will preach for Rev. J. S. Brownlce in the Baptist Church. Her subject will be "A Man Who Couldn't Take It." A mass meeting will be held in the Baptist Church at 3 o'clock to which the public is invited and the congregation of both churches will unite for the farewell service at that church at 7:30 o'clock. Miss Weakland will then tell "The Story of My Life," during which she will relate something of her call to the ministry and how she has been able to secure her education while traveling so extensively. She will also briefly answer the o.uestion, "Is It Scriptural for n Woman to Preach?" Addressing another capacity audience last evening on "A Preacher Unashamed," Miss Weakland maintained that Paul waa a preacher unashamed. She expressed herself as being able to comprehend why some people were ashamed of many thinfis, of their debts, perhaps, or home?, or even of their parents, but she could not understand how anyone regardless of circumstances could be ashamed of Jesus Christ or Hi's gospel. "Just as salvation ii God's gift to the world, so the Holy Spirit is His' gift to the Christian," said Miss Weakland. "A Christian who is not Illlcd with the Holy Spirit Is useless when it comes to doing any real ng- Kresslve work for the Lord. The Holy Spirit Is the power of God unto salvation," Special music last evening included two selections played on the xylophone by Florence Wilkcy, accompanied by Marian Snyder. Monday evening Miss Weakland Is scheduled to conduct a special service in the United Brethren Church of Mount Pleasant where she held a campaign eisht years ago.
