THE WORKS OF THE MESSIAH LESSON TEXT--Matthew 8:14-27. GOLDEN TEXT--Jesu~ of Nazareth . . . went about doing sood.--Aets 10:38. "Does it work?" Modern man is not impressed by a thing simply because great claims are made for it or it is intricately organized. After all, the important thing is, does it really work? Such a test can be carried to an extreme and the finest and richest things of life be thrown aside because they have no utilitarian value. But in gen- eral, the question is a good one, and especially is that true as it is ap- plied to religious systems and philosophies of life. These claim to have power to deliver man from his sin and give him peace and rest. V'hat we want to know is, do they actually do it, not only in the day of health and prosperity, but in the hour of death and devastation? The answer is that every one of them has failed and does fail, with the exception of Christianity, which comes "not in Word but in power" (I Cot. 4:20). In Christianity is found the only real dynamic for daily living. I. Personal Needs Satisfied (w. 14-17). This entire section of the Gospel of Matthew is concerned with miracles. It is interesting to note how many of these events concern personal needs. There is scaz~t comfort to the needy one to speak to him in generalities about a great God who is ready to help people. When I am in need I want to know whether there is any help for me. Jesus healed Peter's mother in the home, and then He went out and healed multitudes in the throng, but in each case it was a personal in- terest which He took and a per- sonal bealing that was received. Observe also that He met the need of all whether they were sick in body, mind or spirit. Someone may say, "That is aH very well, but that took place when He was here on earth." Well, He is here now, work- ing in and through the power of the Holy Spirit and in and through His children. The Lord Jesus Christ daily satisfies every need of His disciples, and often does so in ways which are m~raculous in their sight. II. Sacrificial Serviee Exempli- fied (w. 18-22). Following Jesus in discipleship is more than speaking sweet words of devotion or of taking part in the carrying out of some public wor- ship ministry. To really follow Him is to "foLlow one whose vocation is such that there are incessant de- mands compelling t~e renunciation of home and the comforts of a set- fled life. Only the call of God can make one equal to the demands of such a hazardous life" (Edward E. Anderson). Observe that even the demands which love may present on behalf of an aged father must not be per- mitted to stand between the disciple and his Lord. There is no thought of unkindness or lack of considera- tion here, for as our Lord points out, those who are spiritually dead, although still physically alive, may well be called on to care for the physical needs of an aged parent, even in the hour of deeth, if the Lord Jesus has work for His disciple to do elsewhere. There is no thought of neglect of the duties of life, but rather of a placing of the Lord first, whatever else may take the second place. The blight upon many a Christian experience is that almost anything else which is of interest is allowed to take first place and the Lord must take second place if He is given any place at all. HI. Divine Power Demonstrated (w. 23-27). There are those in the world who are unable to see the workings of God's power in the spiritual realm because they themselves have not been spiritually born again (I Cor. 2:14). For these the Lord here pre- sented the working of His mighty power in the realm of nature. Satan, who is "the prince of this world" (John (14:30) had evidently whipped the waves of the sea into a mighty storm, possibly thus hop- ing to drown Jesus and get rid of his divine adversary, but the Lord Himself speaks in the majesty of His eternal power and we read that "there was a great calm" (v. 26). Even HIS diseil~les were atrangely astonished that the very "winda and the sea obey Him." Yes, the forces of nature respond to His slightest word. The winds and the sea obey Him. B~rt what i~ more wonderhd is that the turmoil of a man's soul becomes a great and blessed calm when this holy Lord Jesus speaks the word of peace. Confused and troubled man or woman who reads these words, will you not now by faith submit your- self to the One who can speak to you, who can meet and satisfy ev- ery one of your needs, and who can give you the blessed privilege of sacrificial service on His behalf in a needy world? Plan Colorful Feature for River Pageant to Be Held in 1941. MEMPHIS.--The colorful show- boat era of a half century ago is to be revived on the Mississippi river as one of the features of the exposi- tion planned here for 1941 to mark the 400th anniversary of the discov- ery of the stream by Hernando De Sots. Negotiations are in progress for the purchase of a Hudson river I steamer to serve as a showboat. The salons will be converted into a the- ater seating 2.500 persons and the steamer will move down the Ohio and Mississippi rivers, presenting Edna Ferber's famous "Showboat" at all river towns. The boat which the exposition committee seeks to purchase is the Berkshire. largest of three steam- ers of the Hudson river night line which operates between New York city and Albany. To Keep Staterooms. Ralph E. Logsdon, Memphis Chamber of Commerce director, said the plan is to keep 450 state- rooms of the Berkshire intact so that the steamer may be used also as a passenger boat and for conven- tions. Private capital from St. Paul, St. Louis, Louisville and New Orleans interests will be used to pay for the Berkshire ff the deal goes through. The Berkshire cost $3.00/},000 in 1914, and its owners are asking $250.000 for it now. Logsdon said that ff the Berkshire is parchased, the first presentation of the play. "Showboat," will be staged at the river docks here. The boat then would eruise down the Mississippi to New Orleans, present- ing the play at various river towns. It would later go upstream, having a show season of at least 30 weeks. It is hoped that if the showboat revival is a success, it may have a season on the river each summer. Logsdon said that Albert Johnson, one of the leading scenery design- ers of New York city, had agreed to inspect the Berkshire and determine ff a stage and auditorium could be built without removing the state- rooms. Broadway Talent Likely. The Oscar Hammerstein theater interests in New York are interest- ed in the pro~ect and most of the actors and actresses will be import- ed from Broadway, according to plans. Meanwhile. other plans for the ex- position are going forward. Recent- ly President Roosevelt endorsed cre- ation of a national "Forest of Re- pentance" which had been proposed as a feature of the quadricentennial celebration. Dog Demonstrates His Ability at Mathematics RICHIBUCTO. N. B.--Aifred S. Beers owns a dog that can count, add and subtract. For the benefit of skeptics, Beers ha~ a repertoire of mathematieal stunts that his fox terrier can do. When he asks, "What Is four from six?" the dog barks twice, and gives thg answers to other problems in the same way. The highlight of the pertormanco is when the owner shows the dog any card from the deck and asks what number it bears. The dog harks as many times as there are spots on the card, then walks over to a chair where the deck is spread out and nudges one of the cards of the same suit. Fish Carries Harpoon NEW BRITAIN.- The Formosa fisherman who lost his harpoon when it broke off in a ~00-pound swordfish, probably would be inter. ested to know that George Engle found it while dressing the fish in his market here.

WEEKLY NEWS ANALYSIS BY JOSEPH W. LaBINE U. S. Ships May Be Registered Under European Neutral Flags In Effort to Circumvent Law (EDITOR'S NOTE--When opinions are expressed in these columns, they are those of the news analyst and not necessarily of this newspaper.) l~eleased by Western Newspaper Union, MARITIME: Neutrality Having fought for and having won "cash and carry" neutrality, the United States promptly sought ways to circumvent it. While American vessels and seamen foaled along the waterfronts, crafty minds were thinking up at least two ways of maintaining maritime traffic despite neutrality: (1) chartering foreign ships, a perfectly legal method used ,..~![~:Y;:" MINISTER BRENNAN The President sympathized by Black Diamond Lines, Inc.; (2) registering U. S. ships 'with other nations, also legal but carrying a few potentially unpleasant implica- tions. With its next meeting still a week away, the maritime commission was almost certain to refuse requests for transfer of some 90 U. S. vessels to Central or South American regis- try. When the idea was first broached, President Roosevelt sup- ported it. Later, after getting a lec- ture from Secretary of State Cor- dell Hull, he told reporters that the more he thought about it, the more convinced he became that it wasn't right. Reason: It would place sister American republics in a neutrality position different from our own. Loud as the complaints of Ameri- can ship owners were those of lesser European neutrals whose tl~riving U. S. commerce was stoppedby the neutrality law. Two loudest objec- tors were Eire and Belgium. The former sent its minister, Robert Brennan, to tell the state depart- ment that Eire should be excluded from the "combat zone" be- cause she is neutral and will re- main so; because Eire needs U. S. products; because Eire doesn't be- lieve U. S. ships would be endan- gered visiting her ports. Belgium sent her 'Ambassador Count Robert Van Der Straten-Ponthoz to inquire about transferring U. S. ships to Bel- gian registry. Certainly, commented the Presi- dent, objections to Latin-American transfers wouldn't prevail in the case of European neutrals like Ire- land. It was a pretty safe guess, therefore, that U. S. ships may soon sail under European flags. EUROPE: The War Gone like sudden sunshine on a cloudy day was the Belgian-Dutch effort to make peace between Hitler and the allies. And after the sun came threats of rain, for it ended the last hope of armistice. There was still much saber rattling, such as Winston Churchill's speech call- ing Der Fuehrer a "cornered maniac," but the foes were ready to start slaughtering. Sea and air warfare went ahead precipitously. One day Berlin an- nounced (by inference) that hence- forth all British-French merchant- men would be torpedoed. Reason: They're all armed. Next day, after a successful but pointless air attack on the Shetland islands. Berlin warned it would "show the British what it means to be at war with James Monroe ~ Smith, ousted president of Louisiana State uni- versity, was given 8 to 24 years in prison for forgery, obtaining money under false pretenses and misuse of funda. PA Smith Jr. was sworn in as New York city councilman, fol- the family's political foot- st~ps. MiSty Gaggenhelm, 81, capital- istiC member of the famous cop- per-mining family, died at New York. Ex-Kaiser Wilhelm H was re- ported building a bomb-proof col- far at D~orn, Netherlands. Moses Aunenberg, Pbiladelphie publisher and erstwhile operator of a horse-race betting tip serv- ice, announced after a U. S. crackdown that he had "forever quit the business." Germany." In 72 hours 11 ships were sunk, one a British destroyer. Britain, for her part, sank two Nazi merchantmen and a U-boat. The week's most thought-provok- ing news dispatch came from John T. Whitaker of the Chicago Daily News, who cabled from Rome that Der Fuehrer's position looked des- perate. Said Whitaker: Hitler had indecisively retreated after massing troops on the Belgian-Dutch fron- tier; he can pierce the Maginot line only by wasting a million men; he can't break the British blockade; Scandinavia opposes him, and a strike at the Balkans will bring down the wrath of Russia and Italy, each of which "has his measure." Conclusion: "He finds, for the first time . . . that the cards are not stacked against his immediate foe. And as he delays, confusion and de- featism are inevitable at home, , ." Finlandia Leaving Moscow without cus- tomary diplomatic formalities, Finnish conferees returned to Hel- singfors where awaiting officials al- ready knew they had refused to grant Russian demands. Immedi- ately the Soviet press began a with- ering anti-Finnish campaign which could only be a prelude to armed action. First, Moscow's Pravda claimed Finland was on the brink of economic ruin, but Helsingfors quietly replied the Finns could get along. Next, the Soviet news agency, Tass, " accused Finnish ruling circles of fostering anti-Rus- sian policy. Helsingfors answered by announcing there would be no resumption of conversations. CRIME: O' Hare.Capone Who killed Cock Robin was never a greater mystery than who killed Edward J. O'Hare, Chicago race- track owner whose assassination in early November set off the biggest gangland witchhunt since Alphonse Capone went to prison in 1932. Rea- sons: The murder came just before Capons was released, and O'Hare was known to have associations with Capone. Two theories to date: (1) That O'Hare, as interim man- ager of the Capone gambling syndi- cate, was "rubbed out" because he refused to turn back the reins when "Scarface AI" was to be released. (2) That O'Hare was slain by dis- senting Capone mobsters who feared he would return the reins to Scar- face A1. The deeper federal and city in- vestigators probed the mystery, the more complex it became. The more embarrassing, too, especially for one Judge Eugene J. Holland of Chi- cago municipal court, who was asso- ciated with O'Hare in a real estate enterprise. Officials wondered if there could be any connection be- tween this and the fact that only 28 of the 12,624 Chicago gambling cases JUDGE HOLLAND Embarra, ed. handled by Judge Holland in the past 15 months had resulted in~ con- victions. Two days before Cap0ne's myste- rious release in Philadelphia, a 21- year-old named Russell Stoddard was held by LOs Angeles police after a mysterious stabbing. Not only did he claim to be a former O'Hare bodyguard, but officials found in his possessions a letter indicating that Stoddard knew who killed O'Hare. COURTS: 5 to 4 Only two years have passed since Franklin Roo~velt,mmt ,the inmate his first nominee to the Supreme court.-A]ahama's Sen. Hugo L. Black. Since then, one by one, have come Liberal Stanley Reed, Liberal Felix Frankfurter and Liberal Bill Doughs. With only four Roosevelt appointees, the nine-man court was still theoretically anti-New Deal. This month died Justice Pierce Butler, ~3-year-old conservative, a Catholic from Minnesota, When his successor is named, the New Dea/ will have an undisputed liberal ma- jority which will last at least an, other generation. Among possible successors observers listed another midwest Catholic, Michigan's Frank Murphy. when you have these signs of Acid Indigestion Check these #ymptom#.-~m@~ tf you suspect tttc~ss adds, take PhiUtp~' Milk o] M~g~ ly trouble persists, Yoj_r Doctor~ Today it's so easy to "alkalis" excess acids anywhere you are.
