W. Stanley, business man, contends. In fact, Stanley has built a minia ture “big top,” complete with 3 ring mai.i tent, menagerie, cook tent, sideshow, dining and dress ing tents, stables, and a power plant bearing the sign “Danger— Stanley Circus.” The living room table top circus is built to scale, 1-4 inch to the loot. It is peopled with wire-walk ers, animal trainers, tumblers, a band, freaks and all the miscel lany of a real circus. The main tent will seat 800 people, 300 of them in tiny opera chairs which fold neatly. The compact, collap sible circus can be loaded into miniature cars. After 14 months of work, Stan ley has spent only $10, and calls his hobby the least expensive in the world. He is working on fig ures of 300 spectators, each of which will require three tours to carve and paint. After 14 months of work, F. W. Stanley has built an exact scale model of a circus, complete in every detail. Now he is put ting the finishing touches on figures of spectators to occupy the big top. Lower photo shows the canvas rolled up to reveal a part of his circus menagerie. , _ Sunday School Lesson By WILLIAM E. GILROY. D. D. Joy to the world! the Lord is come: Let earth receive her King, Let every heart prepare Him room, And heaven and nature sing. It was thus that Isaac Watts wrote in the great hymn, that with its reverberating tune, Antioch, has been sung around the world with fervent exultation. It empha sizes the theme of our lesson, for its note is that of universal joy, and the universal joy is in the com ing of Jesus, the King. That universal joy was first proclaimed in the carol of the angles, heard by the shepherds in the field: “Behold I bring you ti dings of great joy, which shall be to all people.’ Those are universal words, and the angels might have added to all people, of every time. Jesus brings joy because He saves from sin. Broken and dii couraged men and women, who had lost heart and hope, have found new life as they have look ed to him. “Joy shall be in heav en.’ said Jesus, “over one sinner that repenteth.” But there is joy in the soul of the sinner himself.

Worship 11:15 a.m. Christmas program 6 p.m. Nor need we think of sin in terms of gross, degrading, befouling characters and actions, when we stress the joy of redemption. There are respectable sins, sins of pride, and pharisaism. and intolerance, that are none the less sins against God and against man, and hurtful to the sinner, who is often least conscious of sin, in alienating him from God and: man, and in limiting his life's' outlook and work. Paul was such a sinner, zealous, living in all good conscience; but in his blind devotion presecuting his fellowmen, hateful instead of loving, holding the garments of those who stoned Stephen to death. Is it any wonder that Paul after his conversion writes a great deal about joy? He knew the joy of having his spiritual blindness removed. He wrote of "Joy un speakable and full of glory.’ Why should he not? It was the joy of a great, overwhelming ex perience. “We know that we have passed from death unto life, be cause we love the brethren." It was John who wrote those words, but they accord with the words in which Paul described the same rich experience. “If any man be in Christ he is a new creature: old things have passed away, all things have be come new." And this stresses the positive i joy that Christ brings. It is joy not only in what the Christ saves us from, but in what He saves us to. “I am come," said He, “that they might have life, and may have it more abundantly.” The joy that Christ brings is in the consciousness of a right direc tion of living, in the sense of life as worth while, and of life at its best as the working out of God’s plan. Here there is no defeatism, no apathy, no half heartedness. Life is a daily prayer, and what a prayer! Daily bread is the sustenance of great endeavor, and great goals—the Kingdom of God, and the making of earth like heaven. There will be joy in this Christ mas season: but how much of it will be the truest and highest joy of all? My heart goes out to the thousands in America today who are seeking joy in ways of escape, in noise, and excitement, and in toxication. Poor soul! They don't know what they are missing. They don’t realize that they are seeking AIRPLANES REPORTED LONDON, Dec. 22—MPI—1The Swedish radio reported today that "large numbers of foreign air craft” passed over Swedish terri tory from the west to the east, indicating that Nazi strongholds in the Baltic were under attack again. -V Margaret Culkin Banning, Amer ican novelist, has been abroad at the outbreak of three wars—in London in 1914; in San Sebastian at the commencement of the Span ish Revolution; in Paris for the first mobilization in 1939. escape from life, instead of accept ing life and finding its deepest joys. To them Jesus says as He said to those of old, “Ye will not come unto me that ye might have life,” Perhaps some will heed, and find their part in this universal joy. “Joy to the world, the Lord is come.” CATHOLIC GROUP TO SING CAROLS b£sV‘mS» t p"™ St Thomas’ Catholic church will be the main feature of the annual Christmas program to be present ed by the Educational committee of the Ninth and Nixon streets USO club at 4:30 p. m.
