THE NEW YEAR'S CALL
"Ring out the old,
ItlriK in tlm new;
King out tho fnlHn,
Ring in tins true."
With these 1! ties from Tennyson no mnrk tho panning of 1010
ami tho diiwn of 11)11. They may bo taken not only an our recog
nition of Fatlior Time's birkh-day but as expressive of tho spirit
with which we face tho future and part with the pHst.
We are ready for the new and welcome it tho ne had not grown
tired of thaold, and ue ore more that ever ready for the true be
cause we are more than ever tired of the false.
Hut we lire not expecting that all the false will perish with the
year that is receding Into the past. No, no. We hnvo never no
much as drentned of anything like that. We do expect, however, lo
see lens of tho false and more of the true. Our hope, our faith,
our experience lead us to expect that..
Last year was one of tho best e hnve ever known. That is
personal. Out wo bel teve it was the very best the world has 6ver
known. Yes, we could mention much that was had, very bad, dis
couraging, positively disheartening, if wo had a mind to; but then no
year ever witnesned bo many buoyant forces challenging tho bad,
grappling with tho bad, and disputing its power aud right and
often defeating it. Verily, there were many evidences of the "Peace
and good will among men."
But Hih new year is to be still better. How do we know?
That is where our faith comes in. That is whal our experience dic
tates. Have we not seen the gathering momentum of the good?
Is there anyone who has not seen itf
"Ring- out tho false,
King in tho Iruo."
"Ring out" and "Ring in." Action is demanded commanded.
We are already heeding the comnnnd. We have long been heed
ing it. These are imperatives. For years Ihej have furnished the
iron for our will. Heeding them we have been committed to all
the program of the good, and now nilh the naifaie still raging be
tween the good and the bad, the true and the false, we are eager for
the conflict we rejoice in the opportunities offered by the new
year. This too is personal.
But isn't it more than personal f May we not claim this same
spirit for every number of the gieal Cili7n ftiniilj ? Net so much
as that, possibly, but for a large number of them, surely. And may
we not picture thtm as a great bripsde Hatching into the battle
