UP,TO.DATE 'REVOLUTION' THERE could be no more convincing way for the his- torian of the future to point out the high standards of living pre- vailing in this country than to contrast today's demands of those who want to overthrow our institutions with the demands of the revolutionists of other eras in the world's history. The French masses cried for breaa and failing to get it brought on the French revolution. But when a pres- ent day advocate of revolution in this country recently made a speech he said: "Why should the citizens-- at least 90 per cent of them--be imprisoned behind the cruel bars of want when within _ - i their grasp there ~~..W~-~r are plenty of ~t~" ~i shoes, of clothes, [~~ of motor cars, of [~~ refrigerators to ~,f/;~r' which they are ~k~~ entitled?"

Intelligent salesmanship and mass production have distributed this wealth so widely that stringent im- migration laws are required, The new industries created and developed in this country in the past 50 years now give employment to I0,000,000 men and women. Each new industry, whether it be auto- mobiles, radio or rayon represents a new idea that has had to be first sold to the American people. It is significant that in this same period foreign countries, that have not de- veloped their newspapers and pub- lications as advertising vehicles for the dissemination of new ideas about things to buy, have not developed 8 single great new industry. If the United States has reached the poin~ when revolutionists must cry fox motor cars and refrigerators to He! attention, it wotild seem that we are weal on our way to prosperity.

KIGH~OUSNESS IN THE KINGDOM LESSON TEXT~Matthew 6:11-20. ~.45; 8:1-4. GOLDEN TEXT~Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is per~ect.~Matthew S:48. "Righteousness in the kingdom," the title ~of our lesson, properly re- lates its teaching to the kingdom of the Messiah which is to come on the earth, and to the condition which shall then prevail. At the same time we agree with Dr. James M. Gray that "it would be wrong to press this too far and to say that the Sermon on the Mount has no application whatever to the Chris- tian church or the time in which we live, for God is the same through all dispensations and the underlying principles of Hie govern- ment never change." Certainly it is true that ff all of the men and all of the nations of the earth were on this Armistice Sunday true followers of Christ and ready to carry out the teachings of this lesson, there would no longer be any possibility of war. This means that the best peace propa- ganda is the sending of missionaries and teachers to all the earth to win men to Christ. Our lesson should be studied and taught with great care lest we con- fuse morality with Christianity and make it appear that men are |ustio fled before God by their good works rather than by their faith in Christ. I. Christ Fulfills the Law (5:17-20). The law of God is eternal, never to be abrogated, never set aside. Christ Himself, although we might prol~rly s~y.that He was in reality the Law-giver and thus had power and authority over the law, indicat- ed His purpose in coming to be that of giving the law its fhll meaning, not of destroying it. One could wish that those who profess to be His servants might have the same measure of regard for God's law. If they did, they obviously would not be so ready to ignore it, so quick to change it or explain it away, and far more ready to accept with their Master every "jot and tittle," that is, even the minutest detail of His Word. Recognizing Christ as the fulfill- ment of the law should prepare one to manifest obedience to every moral precept through His grace and by His strength. Certainly it should not lead anyone to lawless- ness or carelessness regarding de- tails of the daily walk. Fellowship with the Saviour should be revealed in consistent living (v. 20). H. Christ Explains the Law (5: 3845). Look at verses 21 to 37. The spirit of murder is anger (vv. 21, 22). A lustful look is adultery (vv. ~-30), and it is better to be blind than to be guilty of it. Divorce is linked very plainly with adultery (w. 31, 32). Swearing is forbidden (w. 33-37)~ Thus Christ strips out- ward conformity to the law of its apparent virtue and reveals that with God it is the spirit that gives meaning to the act. He goes on to make plain that God alone is wise enough to take vengeance, that we ought never to retaliate with evil for evil. Note that verse 39 probably refers to an insult rather than to physical vio- lence; that in verse 40 it is a ques- tion' of a difference of opinion in which the other man feels that he has a legal right to your coat; and that here, as in verses 41 and 42, it is not s matter of lett.'mg a wicked or scheming person defraud you of your rights or property, but rather of doing what is required of you in an ungrudging spirit and of being generous with others who are in need. In Christ we are to be like our heavenly Father and love our enemies (w. 43-45). m. Christ Illustrates the Law (6: 14). Possibly it would be more appro- priate for us to say that Christ here illustrates the right and the wrong way of fulfilling the law. How "very clear He ~aakes it that the one who, while ostensibly doing the will of God, actually is seeking the recog. nation and glory of men has received his full reward, for men have ap- plauded his act of generosity. The transaction is complete and God has nothing to do with it at all. On the other hand, the one who gives in the spirit of Christ, not wanting men to know of his faithful stewardship (v. 4), and in fact making no reck- oning of it himself (v. 3), may be certain that he has a heavenly Fa- ther who takes careful account of the loving deeds of His children and who will reward him, both in this world and in the world to come. Memories of Happy Days Why is it that the memory of some days in the past, unmarked by any striking event, always come to us like the breath of spring? It may be that on those days, in re- ward for some forgotten act, God drew us close to Him, and that we absorbed something of His eternal peace and happiness.

Lumbermen Utilize All 'Waste' Products Making something out of nothing comes within shooting distance of describing what lumbermen and theJr asSent/tic staffs are doing to- ward utilizing the waste products of logging and sawmills. The national forest serv/ee hag es- t/mated that "only 25 per cent of our present producing forest is saw timber"; that is to say, only s quar- ter of what is left of the great for- est~ that once covered so large a part of the country is capable of being sewed into merchantable lum- ber. Official statistics show that the forest land of the United States com- prises 495,000.000 acres, of which 39 per cent are located in the South and 26 per cent in the West. But for use in the production of merchanta- ble lumber the western eras con- teins "/9 per cent of the total saw timber and nine-tenths of the old growth of the remaining forest~. In short, the figures show that the great remaining re~erve~ of~saw Umber in the country is the western area. The lumber industry of the we~ and northwest has been p~rticular- ly active in carrying on scientific reseerch to discover ways and means to utilize the logging and sawmill wastes as raw products for industrial purposes. And, according to Dr. H. K. Benson, head of the department of chemical engineer. in~, University of Washington, some very interesting products have re- silted in transforming forest wood, logging waste and sawmill waste into commodities. "The processing of wood into man. ufactured products to take the place lumber," he explains, "may e~ slat e~ heating the finely divided wood with high pressure steam and suddenly releasing and exploding the wood into small resultant fibers which in turn may be compressed into boards of various deffrees density and uses." One of the new waste products described by Dr. Bens~ trans/orms shredded sawmRi waste into what is known u "artificlal stone/" Another process takes sawdust and with suib- able machinery compresses it into the semblance of a log ebout six inches in diameter. Its Imurface hi waterproofed and certain ehel~leal8 are added and this product has be- come popular for fireplaces and open-grate heaters. The ehemlcais impart various colors to the flames as the log continues to burn. The same process may be aRplled to boards, The darker types are made from sawdust eomprused at high pressure and temperatt~e so ~haL : pert/el; decompoelt/en takes place, resulting in an artificial ma- hogany. In northern Califomde a lew-grade board containing resinous material t8 changed into a high-grade board by subjecting it to a method by wh/ch the resin is removed by a vapor solvent process. In a Wash- Ington mill low grade $18 lumber Is changed into high-grade $32 lum- ber by punching out the knot~, which make it low grade, and filling the knotholes with cotmt~r- parts. This job is done so efficien~v that it is practically Impossible tO see where the new pieces have been inserted.
