One O f (lie most renmrkuble statements concerning tlie contacts Of Jesus with Ihe people Ls thai, •He tauglit them as OTIG hnving authnrlty. hnd not n^ the scribes." The scribes, as the ofriclnt icn- re.scritntlves or religion, were snp- c-d to spcnk with nntliority. But the pL'ople cared littiL' for tlie i-cribes' words, wiiile they heard ;lr.dly this young mnn from Naxn- relh. unknown, unrecognized by [),5 or council, with no onilnn- :ion to His ministry other limn tlie baptism by John the Baptist.. What wns tlio source nntl secret his iinlhoiity of Jesus? It wns Ihe fnct thni lie sought no nu- liorlly other limn the truth. lie spoke with such nbsolutc? convic- n not because He regiirded Himself ns (he nrbitrnry mnnufnc- -urei- of truth, but because the r«th He declared wns established Gcc(, in nmn, and in the very constitution of the universe. There is the ultimate source nnd l Of truth, mid Ihe solid basis of authority. Officials nnd councils may thunder their dognins and decrees .and seek to make truth >y flat, but the only thing thai stands is the I ruth established in orf's ivorlrl of reality. Look into the teachings r>r Jesus ind you will fina that thcy'nrc all nlicront in (lieir authority. They need no power to sanction them. They arc as much established in the spiritiml constitution of mnn and his world ( ,.s are the iixed InwS of tl»' physical universe. Tiie authority of Jesus was not only In His words; His very presence radiated authority "Whatsoever He salth unlo you,'do U." 'sftlcl His innther. Men moved al His bidding. When He drove the money-changers out of the temple, II was not by physical force of Iho whip of small cords or of rushes that He had woven from the temple floor, us some have supposed; the whip, whether of cords or of rushes, was a slight affair, glumly a symbol of the ruor- nl authority of an aroused und in- dlBnnul Christ. Good men were drawn to Him; had. men were stirred to antagonism as they rebelled against Him and rejected His teachings. But men were never the same once they had come under the power of Ills presence and authority. Even the scoffing Pilate, with his cynical question aboul truth, knew that he wus judged by that calm nnd silent prisoner. And the authority of Jesus continues today. Men fire still judged bv their attitude toward Him. He challenges the world a 3 no other has. Believers rejoice In His'name and find in Him n teacher and Saviour come from God; unbelievers cannol ignore Him. They write great booKs lo prove thai He never existed, or that He was not as His disciples, have claimed and ns tlie Oospels portray Him. Why such ?.eal of unbelief.

One was auburn-haired Kathleen Wood, 22. of Winchester. Eng., pretty enough to be a top-notch model, who was quoted In the Lom>cm Dally Mail. "As far as I'm concerned," she said, "those stories in the -Daily Mfli] ami other British -paper.-, • simply aren't true, nnd I.never said anything-like that." Mrs. Wood, who .has accepted the hospitality of the Hed Cross for seven . months and still hasn't deckled when she- Kill go home, said she was upset by; JNCW York restaurant's ntlltuitc toward r-hild- rc-n.

The .scarcity ol native tit- riJi fruit.'! and of olive oil is partly explained by the fact that 80 per cent of the country's production is earmarked for export, bul every .Spaniard is convinced that the government practice of fixing url- i ci's at 50 per cent below production] cost has done the most damage. | Wive:; ol city woikers make excursions to the neighboring country districts r,m| try to Pick up a lew kilos of potatoes, rice, flour, butter and oil for which they Pay the fai'mer double tijc taxed price and in turn .scll~the goods at u good profit in Ihe city.

Most office workers—even when both luifband and wife work— li-ive to ta,ke on another job outside their regular office hours lo face tlie high cost of living. The-bank secretary, like countless others, claims that the last ten strenuous years have been harder on the "white collar" class than on any other class of the population.
