Seven Agencies Are Canvassing Wide Field To Find Best Prospects B.v OLIVER II. KNIGHT United Press Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON (UP) — S even governnie'ntal agencies are seeking to find and train defense workers who can keep up a steady stream of production that will make the United -States democracy's arsenal, i Dr. Ployd W.

Work Projects Administration, Civil Service Commission, Federal Committee, on .Apprenticeship, : Bureau of Employment:_ Security, National Youth Administration, and the Civilian Conservation Corps" are the agencies involved.

GILKOY, D. 1). Kditor of Advance This lesson might have been called "Reality' hi Religion." It em- phusizes what Jesus was continu- I silly teaching, that it is not what jone professes to be, but what'one i is, thai constitutes one's real .faith land religion; and that it is not conventional religious rites and performances, but. actual deeds of | love and kindness, acts of Forgive- 1 ness and gratitude, that are the limits of real "faith. • Here is this matter of forgiveness. To the Christian who is in jiuiy sense.a realist it is at the very : foundation of religious . faith and | action. The Gospel which is the • very essence of Christianity is the yood 'news of God's forgiving grace .and love; and the Lord's Prayer, winch is the Christian's most es- sential expression, links the forgiveness of man with the forgiveness of God. "Forgive us our ires- passes as we forgive them that trespass against us." • t . :/ * ^Yet when we look around us and observe the masses of ' professing Christian people, how few are ready to show any real forgiveness ia the presence of some real wrong done them, or'are ready to forgive when the offender shows a repentant spirit! It was so in the time, of Jesus. So, when a disciple asked Him how often a brother should offend and be forgiven He said •'.seven times"—not meaning- just seven times literally, but teaching that in reality there was no limit to forgiveness, just as there is no limit to God's forgiving love. But repentance, Jesus indicated, is necessary to make forgiveness definite style America hns: a colorful, informal, constantly changing one. But the foreign players like ic and adopt It quickly. Signe Hasso, the Swedish stage and screen star' just imported by RKO, is delighted with Hollywood's one-piece [ cotton dresses, slacks and jackets.

Willingness to forgive cannot'' alone effect reconciliation and restoration when wrong has been done. Wrong must be undone Insofar as the offender can undo it. But to treasure up, hate in one's heart, even against an unrepentant offender, is to make the injury to one's self all the greater. The true Christian will manifest a forgiving spirit as well as forgiveness in action. * * . * Then there is the matter of gratitude. How apt we all are to take things for granted,, failing to show either a grateful spirit or to give words of thanks. Jesus struck at ingratitude with a dramatic incident. As He went inio a village, 10 lepers met Him, standing afar oJf, as lepers were required U> do. He healed them, and in their surprised rejoicing ! they went off to see the priest and | have their cure confirmed. Perhaps jit was natural that they should' j think only of the amazing thing that, had happened and what it meant to them. .But one of the healed lepers improved, on nature. Apparently swept .on"" with his fellows, vrtien. he ".saw that lie was healed, he turned back to give thanks, glorifying- God, And he was a Samaritan—as much as to say in modern language, an outcast from orthodox religion and the church. Yet he was the man of true religion. When are .we going to learn the lesson, that regardless of race, creed, color, or -profession, it. is the reality of what men are and what Jhey^ do that constitutes their rea/:j religion? •'••.. • A ^spider has eight legs and six to eight eyes: MOROLINE WHITE PETROLEUM JELL?
