Doing Excellent
Work For Notion's
Safety . ..
By Charles D. Rowe
At various times the writer of
this column has called attention to
the excellent work being done by
the American Legion, that great
patriotic organization of men who
have faced the enemy in the stress
of battle and fought to preserve
our liberties.
Constantly since its organization
following World War I it has con
tinued to fight for the safety of the
nation. And today it is no less
active than in former years. One
of its most important activities dur
ing the years has been a program
of Americanization. The latest move
in that direction is the preparation
and broadcasting throughout the
nation of thousands of booklets
stresing the patriotic duties of all
Americans and also emphasizing the
wonderful privileges and freedom
we have here in America. It is an
educational treatise on Americani-1
zation. TJiis is a noble work and
deserves the sincere commendation
of every true citizen. We have
grown so accustomed to our Ameri
freedoms that we too often take
I was handed the July number j
of the American Legion Magazine j
by a Libby veteran who is still |
trying to serve his country in peace
as well as in war. An outstanding j
article in the magazine—Can We
Head Off War?—by James F. O'
Neil, national commander of the ;
American Legion, frightens one,
with the information it discloses of
how dreadfully close to war we
may be. But is also encourages one
with the argument advanced by
Commander O'Neil to the effect that
we can insure our safety and pro
bably prevent war by immediately,
strengthening the national defense :
by means of a stronger army, navy, I
air force, and industrial mobiliza
tion. O'Neil says it is the duty of |
every American in this election
year to study the record of all can
didates for high office and vote only
for those who sincerely advocate
an adequate national defense. And
he is wise in that contention. |
them as a matter of course. Now
and then it is well to have some
thoughtful organization call them to
our attention as the Legion is now
In this time of a national election,
how many of us appreciate the great
privilege we Americans have of j
electing our officials by a secret,have
ballot. Today large parts of the '
world do not have it. We have not 1
always had that privilege ourselves,

The noted infidel, Robert Inger
soll, was once asked to deliver the
funeral address at the grave of the
child of an intimate friend. The
best comfort he could offer to soothe
the tears of the grief-stricken moth
er was the line, so often quoted
since then: "It is better to have
loved and lost than never to have
loved at all."
How different this hollow com
fort is from the assurance of the
man who has come to God through
faith in Jesus Crist! Jesus said:
"My sheep hear My voice . . and
I give unto them eternal life; and
thev shall never perish, neither
shall any man pluck them out of
My hand."
He who has learned to know
Christ as his Savious from sin need
not pin his hopes for the future on
the shallow comfort of greeting
card philosophy. Having placed his
hand into the hand of the eternal
Shepherd, he can say; "Yea, though
I walk through the valley of the
shadow of death, I will fear no
evil; for Thou art with me."
There is nothing uncertain about
the Christian faith, not even when
It comes to the end of time and the
beginning of eternity, because the
Christian faith is based on God's
eternal promises. It is the aim of
our church to help you get and re
tain that faith. Our services are
yours for the asking.—ST. JOHN

"The problem of poor posture and
the low efficiency of workers which

two ways." Dr. Anderson exnlained.

"In both programs individual
chirooractors can play a decisive

N OT only does Chevrolet stand out as the first and only low-priced
car with all the following major advances which comprise the
soundest and best in modern motoring . . . not only does it offer all
these major advantages of Big-Car quality at lowest prices . . . but it
offers them at prices that are now definitely and decisively lower than
those of any other car that even remotely approaches it in quality!
It s the first and only low-priced car with the original and outstand
ing Unitized Knee-Action Ride. It's the first and only low-priced car
with a world's champion Valve-in-Head Engine. It's the first and only
low-priced car with the enviable Body by Fisher. It's the first and only
low-priced car with the triple safety-protection of Fisher Unisteel
Body-Constructien, the Unitized Knee-Action Ride and Positive
Action Hydraulic Brakes.
And yet, despite the fact that CHEVROLET AND ONLY CHEV
ROLET IS FIRST to offer all these major advancements of low-cost
motoring, it holds an even greater price-advantage and gives you
even more value for your dollars in comparison with other automobiles
today than at any previous time in Chevrolet history!
