The chapter lias not attempted to meet the unemployment situation. To do so would have Ijecti utterly impossible, and, in the light of experience, unwise. It lias timlcrfnken tu meet the minimum requiri'inculs of individuals and /.'unities physiwilly or olher- wise temporarily unable lo provide for themselves. JJiit the chapter's reserves have been exhausted, its inontlily income, is insufficient lo maintain even sued n niininuini program, and unless the community reKjwmks help will }\nw to be withdrawn, perhaps even in cases where the alternative is death. . For example: There is iu Jilythevillc a girl, member of a family of eitfhl, snil'erinj; from diabetes. The father, onee a fnirly well-to-do farmer owning twelve mules and farm tools iu proportion, is now;, iloiu'jj a iX)Vter's'work at ?1 per day.' Without insulin, administered daily ul a cm', of about ?S per month, the child would die in 72 hours. The father, with eight months to feed on ft per -day, simply cannot provide that insulin. So far the lied Cross ha-, furnished it. Recently a Ijlylhevillu bus- incss man, already a contributor to the Red Cross and himself far from wealthy, heard of Ihe case and offered to ' assume the burden, fur » time at least. That ease is one of many. The economical and ctfeclive way of handling them i.< through the Red Cross which, with the co-operation nf local medical men, who give their services, and with its hospital contacts, can provide the best care ;U the lowest cost. But it cannot meet these nmU without aricf[ii;itu financial support from the coinnumily. A very few dollai's from those who think nothing O p .spundinir , iulcll |. u . g( , v sums on incon.-cqueiilial luxuries would solve the problem.

Schwartz was born in Corsica of • . German parents, ami taken lo Alsace- Lorraine 'as a baby. A young man when (he war islartal, he joined Ihe German army, serving until the armistice. Then the French seized him, claimed him as a French cili/.en and sent him to Devil's Island as a traitor.. . There he stayed, imiwent of any crime, and utterly 1'orgullen by officialdom, until some functionary happened lo remember him the oilier day. His sentence was promptly commuted, very likely with suave' Gallic, aiwlogies; but who is going to restore to him those lost 12 years? We will r.ol tk'Ical comtmmlbin by ilcnoiiiicing It.

Of course Hitler was beaten and "Little Willy's" first major political effort was u failure. However, when lie was elected to the Prussian Diet lie served notice on all Germany that he was not through by any means. • * 4 . Anti-Royalist, German newspapers thought enough of Hie Incident to call attention to the premise he made at Ihe lime he came back from Holland and to attack his motives as being anything but republican. Tho ex-Crown Princess Cecelia, while generally regarded as favoring the aspirations of her eldest son, the Jormer 1'rince William, for the throne, lends weight, to her husband's chances because of the enormous personal popularity which she enjoys, She was tlie only members of the toyal family to come through the dark days of 1918 with colors fly- ling. When friends in Berlin extended tliclr respectful sympathies, she replied: "I need no pity. I have (he finest mission Urn can come to a German woman, that of rearing my sons to IK good German ciU- nens." Needless to say, tills statement did nut lessen her popularity, nnd it made licr for a time the only member of the royal group which retained a hold on the German people. • • • The former crown prince is quite different from his father, tlie ex-kaiser. In the lirsi place lie lias a saving sense of humor, something lhal ills father sadly Jacked. Once when he was in a moon-lit garden with a. more than personable j'oung lady, s)ie asked if lie were not filled with perplexity when he looked up at the stars. "Not at all." \\-js liis reply. "Tlie stars are decorations bestowed on the heavens by my august father." Prince William also has that democratic quality, totally lacking in his father, which permits him to sec and understand the German people. Ho likes and admires America ami England. lieiore the World War he spent much of liis lime In the company of visitors to Berlin from lliosu countries. When Die Duke of Croy married Miss Nancy Lcishman, daughter of a former American ambassador, the [lien kronprinz o>'catly alarmed nerlin's indignant dowagers who complained that Hie new dciclicss was not "bom," by openly showing his liking for her and by appearing frequently with (he rtuke and his bride. Their acceptance in the best circles then was assured. WEDNESDAY, MAY 4, 1982 A iciciil [ihuln uf the c.\-cro«n piincr tf fSrrminy, aril the Trin- i-c.v. (>reli;i, his Miff, Is sliuu-ti above.

Almost all mammals have seven neck bones, in long-necked animals, the vertebrae are merely longer than those of short-necked animals. A giraffe has no more than a whale. In birds however the number is more variable. Humming birds have u to 15 neck vertebrae, ducks 16 or 17, and swans 25. In 1003, William W. Simpson, a missionary in China wrote to friends in the United States for potatoes with which to develop the American potato in China. A handful of Green mountain potatoes were sent over, and it is estimate!! that a million 'Chinese were saved from starvation by eating the descendants of those first few tubers.

CHURCH EXCUSE courier News Want Ads Georje The churches have so many committees now days that you don't much more than get through with one until you have another at your door. My church, which I think is the bfsl of all, got so loaded up will) committees and departments that I could not keep up with them, so I quit, • they were always putting me on some kind of a committee. They wanted me to net as chairman of one, 1 understood ' them to call it the "hesitating" committee, and when I asked for information as to the duties of this committce^and, «s ' I never could find' out just W. Barhua what we were to do, I refused to act. This committee was to do something about collecting pledges, and ss I was never very good at col- • lecting, :(hcn too. I know how I feel when my church would fiend a collector to see me. I Just know I could not do this kind of work. I think I'm.,ilk. most -folks, If I am nob there to hear, the sermon, 1 don't see why I should pay. I may be wrong, but,.' i don't know of anything else you have to pay for that you don't get. Of course, the church helps everyone directly or indirectly. The Age of Selection is here Our times are marked by one vast advantage over all past history—freedom of choice for the average person.
