The Courier and (he Campaign The general policy of Die Conner News with respect to local ;iml county politics will be one of non-intcrfurcncc in the Democratic primary. That is a general policy, not a rule. When in our opinion the public interest in good and efficient poveriimenl, or the welfare .of the p;irty, demands a definite stand in favor of into nsniranl for the party's favor ns against others, we will take that stand. When, as will probably most often be the case, nny choice \ve might innkc would have to be guided by mere personal preference, rather than by clear- cut issues or differences in character and ability, the Courier News will not attempt to advise the electorate. Whatever the position taken by this newspaper with respect to candidates, the news columns of the Courier News will accord fair and impartial .ment to all. We will report the campaign activities of all candidates, but not permit our news columns to reflect our personal views. The same impartiality will govern in the matter of political advertising. The Courier News has space to sell at one rate to all candidates, but if should be clearly understood that . purchase, oC such will not obtain favors in the news or editorial columns of the paper. Furthermore the rule respecting political advertising, irrespective of its character .or of the personal standing and re' sponsibility of the person or organization placing it, is cash in advance. Our Greatest Problem The toll of motor vehicle fatalities continues to go up. In 102f) our automobiles killed 31,000 people—a rise of 13 per cent over the figures for the year before. . And yet we are all excited because the new "parrot disease" hns killed a couple of dozen people! We aren't doing a thing to reduce this casualty list. Year by year it continues to mount; and year by year we read the figures, say "Yes, it's awful" and go on as we were before. If something is not done, our automobile.-; soon will be killing as many people each year as heart disease. Here is a problem that is as urgent as any oilier problem we have. It demands action ol' the most drastic sort, and it demands it at once. Hut it is a Kafe bet that it will lie another five year.-, at the vi'iy least, before we arc sufficiently amused to do anything about it.

Editor of The CoiijrcsalionaUsl To be a Christian according to Christ Is a very dllfercnl thing from being a Christian according to conventional or world standards. It means more than belonging to a church organlzailon or than being classed as a Christian in the census. To be a Christian according t o Chrisi is to have the virtues and characteristics thai were empha- sl/.ed in Jesus of Nazareth manifested In some degree In one's life, and it is the degree In which these ! virtues and characteristics are manifested that constitutes the extent lo which one may be called a Christian. The principles of the Christian life here set forth in the beatitudes and in the accompanying teaching of the Sermon on the Mount, are rightly defined In (he general title of his lesson as "Standards of the Kingdom." They represent the things without, which the Kingdom | of Gcd cannot exist or be a reality in the souls of men. At the sami lime they represent something very different from the standards of oth er kingdoms. Rule From Within The principle of earthly and worldly kingdoms has always been external rule or authority. The principle of the Klngdohi of God I rule from within. Its standard are standards of life and character Its foundations arc in the thoughts motives, and attitudes tint deter mine outward conduct. It should not be overlooked tha these standards have to do wil happiness or blessedness in life false philosophies of narrow ma terialism in our own age and i oiher ages have confused pleasur and happiness with gocdncss.

This blessedness of life is something (hat is not to be despised. The message of it thai Jesus brought to the world is worthy of particular emphasis at the preseni lime when hi this sophisticated age so much of real nnhuppiness and spoke of the utter gloom of the outlook on life that possessed prncti- cally everybody in his class. A number of felov: students, he said, had contemplated suicide, and in gen- perhaps ns one contrasts wh. era! there was the feeling that life is not worth living. With what striking contrast does dissatisfaction life is found tske nwsvy. "The Hungarians held Iheir country for a iiic'.i«.ind years.
