The Bible reading no Tuesday eve- ng was by Rev. K. C. Bechtel. and opening prayer bv Rev. John Miller. Two special numbers in song were grreatly appreciated, a solo, by H. J. Brubuker. and a duet by Rev. and . B. M. Rollins. Mrs. Royw Mc- was the accompanist for Mr. Brubaker and Mrs. K. C Bechtel for the. Rollins.

The name Mose* means out" and he was drawn out of the bulrusheii. drawn out from hi* people, and he drew hi* people out of the land. Jacob in the Bible was true to his name, lor he trick- his father, his brother and his ather-in-law. But when his name changed to Israel, it meant he had become a prino? having power with God.

Milledgeville Man Carves Wood Model Of a Covered Wagon An exquisite example of wood carving and the faithful reproduction of a historic pioneer vehicle has been executed by Charles H. Quest of Milledgeville in a miniature model of a Conestoga, or Pennsylvania covered wagon of early Mennonite days in the Keystone state. This vehicle was made with a small sew, a hammer and a jackknife, The wagon is made of bits of wood, together with the yoke of oxen drawing the wagon, the pioneer driver with his ox goad and rifle, the dog following him and the doll persons o». the front seat. The bed of the wagon is the typical boat which rests between the standards on the bolsters, and served as a boat in crossing streams. The wheels were built of separate and individual pieces and were assembled when made. Mr. Quest said that he spoiled 11 wheels before he finally made one perfect. The wagon bed has the panels and the hoops for the canvas cover. On the sides are the shovel, the axe. the water bucket and at the rear of the bed Is. feed box. The oxen are red and have long white horns, all carved from wood. The doll people, accompanying the wagon, were planned and dressed by Mrs. Quest. This Conestoga is of the date of 1841. There '.; also a scout rider who rode ahead on the trail for the wagon. Beside the wagon on the prairie grass is the skeleton of a buffalo, each bone being of carved wood painted white. Mr. Quest began work on this carving soon after his discharge from today, th* Supreme ro'irt belong - o the President and the «amr thinz ha* rome to this ro'intiy that ha« come to dirtator countries in Eurr»rw —state capitalism This generation will not see the return of demoracy. Will Durant phiio<opher and author of the best «ei!er "The Story of Philosophy." made that stn'emer.r in a speerh at the Chicago Rotary club luncheon in Hotel Sherman. Durant drew hi* first, applauy when he said: "I'm still betting on the British aristocracy. In the.long run it will win the war—with a minimum of expense—to Great Britain ' ' The only chance of an early revolution from governmental control of capital, which he described as the basis for dictatorship, lies in an early pence, he w»id. "The only possibility, of an early peace.' Durant said, 'lies in acceptance by Great Britain of terms I believe Hess delivered. Namely, that Germany be allowed to conquer Russia and take the Ukraine and that Germany would withdraw from the Scandinavian countries and occupied countries of Europe and England retain It* fleet. "On such terms a peace might be made. "It might be wise for our government not to commit itself until it knows if such a bargain was made." Ideal Abandoned. He 8ay» Durant said American policy has changed from the idea of this country being an island of refuge. "We have transformed the American dream into at dream of permanent. Anglo-Saxon domination of the world—usually called the 'freedom of the seas.'" he said. "Just as England has intervened periodically in continental affairs to keep itself secure, so have we made up our minds to put down any na- tm that threatens our comfort. •That is perfectly all right—it will mean that you will have permanent conscription, that soldiers must be idealized and that we must have more statues of generalsr-lf we can find the generals.

There are no coal houses to overturn any more. jnor buggies to painstakingly place .atop some barn. It is too far afield to put a cow in a belfrey—and there are no belfries of any moment left that are low enough to put a cow into. Official condemnation of malicious pranks, such as thefts of property, etc.. has also had its effect on the rowdy element. The result of all these things, combined with the splendid work done by the schools in staging frolics, etc.. has about put Hallowc'cning back in the horse- and-buggy days. for the Dtxon eerifrfttine station of the lilinoi* Northern VH'.if.e.* rorn- nany.

TreMi "It may be we are living the last Smithsonian Institute for specifications for such a carving but did not receive them until he had nearly completed his task. The measurements of his wagon were so close that it is a miracle he approximated the real model so closely. The wag on model is 14 inches long and six inches wide. It is a beautiful and perfect piece of work. Hallowe'en Contests On Stage at Special Show on Friday Night Apple bobbing and other kindred contorts which mark the Hallowe'en season will be a feature of the special show at the Sterling theatre next Friday night. Prizes-will be TrwBTded~wlnner«r~of the" various contests which will be held on the stage. Boys between 10 and 15 years of age may compete for the prizes. They may enter the contests by seeing Manager Kontos, or by putting In their appearance at the theatre Friday night.. The "Find-Uie-Shoes" contest promises to provde a barrel of fun. All of the contestant* will remove their shoes, place them in a barrel which will be rolle^i around to get them mixed. After the shoes are dumped out on the stage, the contestant who finds and puts his shoes on first will be declared the winner. We of this generation may never see again the right of free speech, press, and assemblage, we h<A-e enjoyed. "When the war U over we will have to keep a dictator because of the resulting deproMion. "If we are In the war by next summer, and I believe we will be. we probably will reeled President Roosevelt to keep from changing in the middle of the stream and we will have him for 1C years — longer than Germany has had Hitler." Durant concluded by,saying that state capitalism can substitute for the profit motive, which he described as the underlying basis of freedom and democracy, only in war and crises.

DILLON "This further increase In capacity was decided upon aji a result of continuing studies made by the Commonwealth Edison group of companies of probable power requirements arising from defense activities." Mr. Fleuhr said. "It U now indicated that the companies' estimate of load trends made earlier this year will be exceeded, due to growing intensification of the defense effort. While the 50.000 kilowatts of additional capacity will strengthen primarily Ihe -northwestern Illinois territory where the load has shown rapid growth, it will be available to the Ed Lion system as a whole." The Commonwealth Edison group of companies lias Increased it's generating capacity by 02.000 kilowatt. 1 ; in the past nine months, Mr. Fleuhr pointed out. With the new Dixon project, the expansion program of the company group now calls for more than 500.000 kilowatts of added capacity during the three, year period ending December, 1943.
