"Serving With WHat We Have" ·I3KASS TACKS' ON THE SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON By DR. ALVIN E. BELL (The International Uniform Lesion on the above topic for March 6 Is Mark 6:1-13: the Golden Text being Acts 3:6, "Such as I have give I thee.") THERE IS no accounting for Jesus of Nazareth on natural grounds. The Prophet Isaiah foretold that he would be ns "a root out of dry ground." In all his life he ncvgr traveled further than our automobiles can carry us In a few hours, yet his name Is spoken reverently over much of the earth. He attended no great schools, yet he has done more for the cause, of education and enlightenment than all the scholars of the ages. His neighbors saw in him nothing unusual, yet the centuries are reckoned from his blrlh. He left, no writing of which we know except once In the ground men. tramped over, nnd yet more books have been written about him than about any other character m all history. All earthly testa and standards fall utterly to measure or account for him. "The Carpenter" His fellow townsmen of Nazarith, to whom he was but the village carpenter, could not reconcile what they feared he -was with what they preferred to think he was. -IJicir preconceived notions of him failed to explain the man they saw and heard In their synagogue, but they determined to stick by their opinions. They chose rather to do violence to him than to their own notions of him. "From whence hath this man these things? nnd what wisdom .Is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works arc wrought by his hands? Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joseph, and of Judo, and Simon? And arc not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at liim." They stumbled over their own stubborn home-town prejudices which they admitted were inadequate to explain the carpenter whom once) they hired to work for them, and jto whom they now felt Inferior and determined not to admit 1C | Tho Unhonored Prophet Therefore Jesus laid bare the! prejudice, saying, "A prophet 1 not without honor, but in Ms own country, and among his own kin and In his own house." By thelij prejudice they shut the door of privilege, and we read the result in the words, "He could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them. And he marveled because of their unbelief." And the world still marvels that those who knew him best, knew him least, and that the Nazareth whose name he has made famous should have treated him with such infamy. Volunteers KnUstod Far from discouraging Jesus' disciples, his rejection at Nazareth put fight Into them and gave them determination to push his cause In other parts. "He called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits. And commanded them that they should take nothing for their journey, save a stuff only; no scrip, no bread, no money In their purse. . . . And they went out and preached that men should repent." As his own power was spiritual and from above, so was theirs to be. As he gave Nazareth Infinitely more than Nazareth gave him so they, going forth empty and penniless were to enrich the world. And so they, did, because "he gave them power." Go to Church You need the message of the cross You need to contemplate and meditate upon the sufferings of Christ. It will lighten burdensome toil deepen the spiritual life. The stress of the times dulls our sensibilities, strains the bonds ot human relationships .thereby intensifying our need of God. Go to church It will make your soul responsive to the still small voice; giving strength for weakness. This Lenten season your minister will lead you, step by step, over the pathway the "Gallilean" trod. You cannot but realize, that the "Redemptive Christ" has tasted the bitterness, known the struggle incident to your life, and offers Himself to accompany you through Lenten's gloom to the dawn of the glad Easter morn. Go to church!

Schocnborn at the II o'clock service tomorrow morning at the First Presbyterian Church. "Political and social upheavals along with other post-war factors have made great inroads on Christianity in both the eastern and western churches," the minister points out. "Russia, with its 130,000,000 people, was lost to Christianity as a result of the Red revolution. American Protestantism, with its 216 denominations, has lost tremendous ground so far as numbers are concerned. This should cause Protestants, at least, tremendous concern for in ancient days a wise man gave utterance to the great truth that 'where there is no vision, the people perish.' What a nation is religiously, history proves, is more important to its welfare and influence than what it is politically, economically or socially. America needs to return to God," lie continued. The Bible school meets at 9:45 to worship and to study together the subject "Serving With What We Have." At the evening service at 7:45 o'clock the pastor will present the 16th and lust in the .series of sermons on "The Lord's Prayer and Other Prayers ot Jesus," entitled "Jesus Praying for Our Sanctiflca- tion."

Liquor Floor Tax Act Invalidated In Dauphin Court By United Press. HARRISBURG, Mar. 5.--The Dauphin county court Friday invalidated the 1033 liquor floor tax act through which the State was attempting to collect $20,000,000 from Pcnsylvania distillers. President Judge William M. Har- gcst set aside a directed verdict in favor of the State, ruling, the act is "arbitrary and results in both inequality and confiscation." In the first of the scries of floor tax suits, prosecuted personally by Attorney General Charles J. Margiotti, the State sought to collect $1,704,347 from A. Overholt and Company. Later Margiotti intended to sue for $3,350,690 already paid by the liquor firm contending the tax never was paid by the company but passed on to Pennsylvania consumers. Suits were also to be pressed against the Large Distilling Company and Joseph F. Finch and Company, but all three were tried together to speed up final disposition.
