Owe Sanity Most -Prevail • The sanity of America miut defi nitely prevail for America must apeak words of sanity to a world that doe* not know what will happen tomorrow. While we have, declared the •peaker, the greatest country In the ' World, and have accomplished great things in education, architecture, Industry and have more luxuries than anywhere else on earth, we have failed in a heritage that is -ours, 1f~*lnister and disastrous- doctrine* and beliefs can gain influence over and adoption by our people. He cautioned that everything is not perfect in this land of ours, but we el* haw a tackground of rich herit- fceTto aptfreclaw! and Ib'Uve by. To illustrate and to further the point of discussion excerpts from our great writers and authentic Incident* and ways of life from the books of novelist* of today were evidence of true condition*. Rev. Mr. Uhlinger emphasised the mission of • good novelist as that of a prophet crying in the wilderness and giving insight into,the future, and Insight into a way of life of a people.. How other* live wa* challenged as one of our problems, a problem that ahdfeld promote active responsibility by those more privileged in any community. Something is very wrong with pur social order, when some an compelled to live in want and need. Then should be no prejudice •gainst nee or creed. He spoke In high praise of the Influence of the Y. W. C. A. in the lives of the young people, a work, he said, which should ; be supported to the greatest extent of our ability. The work of America for its people Is Its heritage. There •re conditions that we have allowed to exist, in some instances, depressing conditions thst It Is a wonder there Is not more crime. There U a heritage that should impel us to go out and build, build for America as the Pilgrims builded. a democracy that Is a vital Interest with the true spirit of the pioneer, on the westward trail, a willingness to suffer that everyone may have room and • chance to live a satisfactory life. No difficulty was great enough to stop our pioneers, but have we, questioned 'Rev. Mr. VhUBier, allowed problem after problem to stop us — - - • iwipon- to feel the sense of the heritage he gave to us and to which w* were born. He was willing to suffer for that which he believed wa* right and that he thought God thought was right. We shfuld •kk ourselves what we are doing to foUpw In hi* footsteps. He was no aalnt, only a man with a .big heart. Government of the people, by the people, for the people is possible. The heritage* we possess is democracy and we are the democracy. Let u* then, said Rev. Mr. Uhlinger, in closing, pledge ourselves anew to make better the lives, the places, that need it. Rev. Mr. Uhlinger gave • fine address of timely significance, in it* interest, its purpose and In the power of its Authenticity. With one •coord th* thought* of his listeners followed in harmony the devotion •ecorded the greet and wise leader* who Walked before to make a path for u* to follow.

Mrs. James Walton Speaks |o Mothers Of Lincoln Club Thirty mothers were present for ,he fine program presented at the October meeting of the Lincoln School Mothers' Study club. The topic for discussion, "Are Our Children What the Schools Make Them?" was given by Mrs. James Walton In a short talk followed by nformal comment* and opinions by the members. In presenting the topic Mrs. Walton stressed the Importance of parents sending their children to school in a happy frame of mind. Thi* will determine to a large extent their reaction to the day's work at school and to the other children. The teacher's attitude Is also very important. If the outside life of the teacher is a normal and happy one this will be reflected in her work with the children. The atmosphere in a schoolroom may be a happy one. It may be tense, or It may be completely business-like. The child learns how to-re*pond to other-people in school, so It is necessary that he has the right conditions to do thi* in a desirable way. Thi* can be accomplished if parent* an sun first that they understand their own child's problems, then discuss them with the teacher in a friendly way. If a child is made to feel that he i* loved and trusted at home, and if he to given the right incentive to do hi* work well at school, be is being given the best chance of making a suc- is* of his school life.

P Survey Being Mode to Aid Smaller Plants If it Is Required Dpspit* the fact that at the present time «!1 manufacturing plants within the jurisdiction of the Sterling office of the Illinois state employment bureau are working steadily, the local office Is anticipating any possible shortage of work and is making surveys with * view to taking care of parole labor displacements in this community. A survey is being made of the smaller plants soittered throughout this vicinity with a view to ascertaining what, if anything, they could be turned to in the line- of defense sub-contracts should the priorities board withhold from them the materials needed in their regular line of work. At the same -time a check is being made of the employes to ascertain what places tn defense work they could fill if the «*me circumstances forced them out of the usual work. These flies are being completed as rapidly as possible so •* to meet every conUngency. although nothing of the sort U anticipated at the present time.

Sterling and Rock Falls housewives and others are again warned that innumerable rackets are being worked by ittner ants, who get the money of the un wary and hurry out of town. Any thing that these people sell can be duplicated in Sterling and Rock Falls stores at less the cost and the purchaser always has the privi lege of returning the goods and get ting the money back if they are not up to specifications. Just why people persist on purchasing goods from itinerant merchant* is a question. These people pay no taxes here, do not employ local labor and contribute nothing toward the welfare of the community. Yet thousands of dollars an annually taken from the pocket* of Sterling and Rock Falls people by men and women with racket* of various kinds.
