Wonderful For ITCHY SKIN RASH Zemo — a Doctor's invisible yet highly medicated antiseptic — promptlyrelieves itch of surface akin irritations. Also aids healing! Editor's Nots: Hiram la suffering from erosion of the human soul! Beware! Spiritual erosion starts In tiny rivulets, Just as soil erosion does. Both are almost negligible at the beginning. But both can produce destruction that spreads to neighboring people and adjacent <arm land! CASE C-379: Hiram G., aged 52, is a wealthy farmer. "Dr. Crane, he used to be one of j the pillars of our little church," one of his neighbors informed me. "He also taught a Sunday school class and was faithful in his attendance. "But one summer a few years ago when we had a lot of rain, he had baled 20 acres of hay on Saturday. Several hundred bales were left in the field that night. "So Hiram decided to stay home from church on Sunday morning and work in the fields lest amther shower ruin those bales of hay. "But, Dr. Crane, I think Hiram | really lost far more than the $200 worth of hay he may have saved. "For he began to stay away from church more often. Oh, he'd alibi to his wife that he had to repair some of his farm machinery. "Last Sunday morning, for instance, I saw him building a hog house when I drove pas* his farm on the way to Sunday School! "And now his son Tom also has become infected with this work-on- Sunday bug. Tom's young wife has begged him tq quit making Sunday another work day, but Hiram's example apparently offsets this young wife's pleading." • Respect Sunday Last summer I addressed a county farm bureau meeting on Sunday afternoon. And I talked on "Erosion of the Soul." Modern farmers are acutely aware of the fact that much of their rich top soil has been washing into creeks, and rivers, whence it finally is carried to the sea. But many farmers have meanwhile been ignoring the erosion of the soul which is growing more prevalent throughout America. In my youth, on an Indiana farm, Old Home Bumper Bread for You!!! we never saw our neighbors working on Sunday. Yet they had far more excuse to do so in those days, for they lacked the wonderful power machinery which now permits a farmer to do more in one day than he could perform in 10 days with horses and our old hand pitchforks. Besides one day, more or less, will not ruin a farmer nowadays, even if another rain does come! And corn that is planted two or three weeks later in the spring, still seems to mature just about as fast as the earlier corn. But even if a fanner saves $500 by violating Sunday, he may start a pernicious habit of disregarding God's Commandments. And his social Influence may not only cost him his own soul but set a bad example for his own children, plus the impressionable youngsters of other good neighbors. The heartache to Tom's devout wife in today's case is far worse than any $200 Tom may save by Sunday farm toil. , And the moral deterioration of a community, because of Hiram's bad example, is far more costly than $1,000 worth of baled hay. For youth look to us oldsters as their examples. If we sell out our conscience for $200 worth of hay, how much better are we than Judas who sold Jesus for 30 pieces of silver? "What shall it profit a man if he gain the whole world and lose his own soul?" asked Jesus. We psychologists recognize the great value of religious idealism and devotion to a few main principles of ethics. Keeping the Sunday holy, has a vast social significance. Farmers, as well as you city folks, please stop the erosion of the human soul. Human souls are more important than the richest farm land. (Copyright by the Hopkins Syndicate Inc.)

Public Sessions Of School Boards Favored In Report WASHING TON — Personality I release, and some joint efforts dashes In a board of education which are of mutual benefit to the Your Horoscope meeting make bigger news for the local community newspaper than a fight on the. floor of tfle United States Senate. This opinion is expressed in a 24- page report entitled, "The Superintendent, the Board, and the Press," released here today by the American Association of School Administrators (AASA), The report summarizes some of the conflicts between newspapers and educators and then points out the many ways in which cooperation between the two can be obtained. "The newspaper editor, the superintendent, and the board have mutual interests. The editor regards his work as educational. . . On the other hand, his interest in the school system and his attitude toward it often are determined by how well he is kept informed. The editor should be considered foremost among the community leaders with whom the superintendent personally consults and strives to keep up to date on educational trends— local, state, and national." According to the report, a corn- plaint which schoolmen frequently voice about reporters is that "newspapermen lack sufficient educational background information to write about, schools intelligently." They charge that the stories sought are usually of a sensational or controversial nature. But, the report adds, "such accusations contain a large amount of sell - condemnation. Unless the superintendent and board members constantly help them to build up a store of background information, newspapermen cannot be expected to acquire a fund of information about school operations, problems, and objectives." Concerning board members, the publication states: "It is a relatively easy matter for board members to make and keep good press relations. Individual board members can neither speak nor act legitimately for the board unless specifically authorized to do so. A board member who adheres to this principle will not permit himself to be drawn into newspaper controversies involving school matters, unless designated as the board's spokesman." A series of suggestions for improving interviews is listed in the report along with a check list for news tips, how to prepare a news schools and the press. The report is co-sponsored by the National fichool Boards Association and the National School Public Relations Association. IT'S ENRICHED! A BUMPER CROP OF GOOD HEALTH I N E V E R Y LOAF!

C Grounds Listed For Evictions Thomas E. Barrett, Jr., director of the Baltimore Rent Office, said today evictions cannot be granted or refused capriciously or merely for sentimental reasons. A landlord, for example, may conceivably evict a family that keeps a dog if the dog turns out to be a nuisance, he said. In such a case the area rent office would have little choice but to permit the landlord to take the case to a local court which would have to make the decision. On the other hand, Barrett said the area rent office can and wil refuse to permit landlords to stari eviction proceedings merely to rent the premises to a personal friend to compel the payment of illega' rent, or merely because the lease had expired. The area rent office never evicts or orders evictions, bu merely determines whether the landlord has the right to seek action from local courts, Barrett explained. Alburtis Sentenced • John Alburtis, 122 South Mechanic Street, drew a 30-day jail sentence Saturday in Trial Magistrates Corn- on a charge of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle belonging to the Astor Cab Company. Police said he took a taxi from Baltimore Street.
