Walter B. Freed, Sunday School Lesson By WILLIAM E. GILROY, D. D. Texts: Exodus 23:1-9; Galatians ..3:23-28; 5:13, 14... „ .. Moses stands in history not only as the great liberator leading his people from bondage to freedom, but he stands also as the great lawgiver. Law and liberty are inevitably associated in the history of man kind and in the development of civilization. There can be no real freedom where laws of some sort are not observed, and there can be no just laws where there is not the free spirit of the people to accept reasonable regulation, and limits of the action of the individual in consideraion for oth ers. A careful study of the laws of •the Jews shows how essentially these were designed for the wel fare of the people, to protect th individual against unjust masures of others, and to protect sociey agains the unsocial acts of indi viduals. Consideration for human life and welfare, care and kind ness toward animals, care for the poor, hatred of false witness and of all corruption, and of anything that would work unfair advantage —all these things are found in our lesson concerning the laws given for the people. There was consideration also for the strangers and the sojourner. The people were reminded to treat others well, considering what they themselves had suffered in Egypt. May , w consider all these things in that ancient society and reflect upon how far we have de parted from the way of God and brought tragedy into human life because we have not safeguarded the lives of individuals or estab lished and enforced laws adequate ly to safeguard and attain the commonweal? Paul, as one who was htorough ly versed in the Jewish law and the Jewish history, has discussed in his Epistles the relationships between law and liberty and has interpreted the great principles un derlying the Mosaic law. Jesus summed up the law in the words of our Golden Text, “Thou saalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with nil thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and hy neighbor as thyself.” This surely is the end and pur pose of til law as it would mean attainment of true liberty. The more people obey just laws, the less evidence is there of the ned of law. Paul thought of law as a schoolmaster bringing man to liberty, and that was a very fine figure. Men need discipline, but the purpose of discipline is to make them strong and to make them fit. now lorceiuiiy ail tins appnes to life today and the situations and problems created by a war inflicted upon the world by those who have put power above lib erty and made obedience to a dic tator, rather than the rule of right, the principle of social obligation! How different the Jewish and Christian conceptions of law as related to the common good and of a society in which it is the privilege of its members by love to serve one another! Even our American democracy has not yet measured up to that ideal, but it is the ideal by which many are already living. pastor. Morning worship service 11:00.

BABSON DISCUSSES LAND VALUES By ROGER BABSON BABSON PARK, Mass.—Letters continually come to me asking my idea as to what changes in the social and economic structure are ahead. These letters have increas ed since Vice President Wallace made his recent Detroit address. As this is a nice cool day, I am making a guess as to what devel opments may take place or at least the route that such develop ments may follow. These com ments, however, are merely fore casts and I am not arguing for them. Instead of Socialism, Fascism, Communism or even Capitalism succeeding, I expect that all of these—as now set up—will change. The “Single Tax” theory of Henry George or the “Eliminate Pover ty” theory of Mrs. John Martin of Winter Park, Florida, comes nearer the desired goal. In select ing this goal, I make two as sumptions as follows: 1. That soil, babies, education and religion are the four founda tion stones of any permanent eco nomic and social system. 2. That the coming economic sys tem will be half-way between Cap italism and Communism. The free enterprise feature of Capitalism must be conserved while a mo nopoly of the soil must be avoided. Home owners, who use the land, must be protected. These four fundamentals — soil, babies, education and religion— must be met one at a time in order that we do not ‘ bite off more than we can chew”. My forecast, therefore, is that the first problem to be tackled will be the soil problem. By soil I include farms, home gardens, natural re sources and improvements, all of which go to make up real estate. Due to high taxes farmers now have not the money to build up their soil and prevent its loss by erosion. As a result the nation is losing every day the soil equiva lent of 200 forty-acre farms. Real estate values ana real es tate owners—as well as the public —should be protected by fair and equal tax assessment. This can be accomplished only by legisla tion whereby the taxable body town, city, county or state—must, upon request of the owner, take over said property at said assess ed value any time on proper no tice. This is the only way to pre vent unfair assessments, although said assessments can be readjust ed each year. Why more ambi tious politicians have not tackled the problem of present ruinous as sessments is beyond my under standing. Fair assessments by themselves, however, may not be enough to equalize opportunities and protect those who are diligently using property to raise families or crops. I, therefore, forecast that the time may come when real estate can be purchased or sold only at the assessed values. This would pre vent both unfair foreclosures by banks and greedy lenders, and it would enable young people to buy farms and other property at fair prices. Banks may at first object to this, but in the end it would protect their mortgages and en able buyers of propery to more easily secure mortgage money. We hear mucn discussion regard ing what is going to be put “be hind the dollar” after the war. Some economists are urging a commodity dollar, the value to move up and down according to the cost of living; others recom mend a production dollar based more upon the nation’s improve ments; while others present still different plans. I hope that the world will return to a reasonable gold standard—at least until we straighten out present economic problems. Without advocating any special money theory, my guess is that the ultimate dollar will be based upon the soil. This does not mean based upon the number of acres which a nation has, but rather that it correlate with the produc tivity of these acres. This in turn will depend on the quality of the soil, naural resources, and upon the number of children, including their education and religion. This “land value dollar” is probably a long way off; but my guess is that all countries must finally come to it. The first step toward a “land value dollar” must be fair assess ments and the willingness of the government to redeem its dollars in land values or issue dollars for land value. In other words, to make the dollar good and assure equal opportunities to young peo ple, it may become necessary for everyone to be able to get land for their dollars or dollars for their land at a fair assessed value. This may be 50 or more years hence. Certainly, I am not arguing for it at the present time; but to stat isicians it seems inevitable some day. Some accompanying restric tions must then be provided to avoid bootlegging in land. Perhaps only a return to religion will do this. People will not always stand tor Capitalism as it now relates to land holdings. On the other hand, the Russian system where all land and improvements are owned by the state crushes private initiative. Fascism is an attempt at a happy medium whereby the land is own ed privately but the government tells its people what to do with it, how to use it, when to sell it, etc. This fantastic Russian sys tem will not work in the long run. -V PROMOTED RALEIGH, Aug. 20—(fli-John H.
