REMOVES SOVIETS' PROP
HOOVER SAYS LIFTING TRADE BAN WILL EXPOSE TYRANNY "fd l.radern Have Heretofore I'lnct'd Illume for K?llurf on Coun try"* UluckHdr. [Br Press.] WASHINGTON, Jan. 17.? Removal of the blockade on Soviet Russia has knocked one 01* their "greatest props" from under the Bolshevists. Herbert Hoover said in a statement here to night. Speaking' of his knowledge of world conditions, the former director of Ku ropean relief said the Soviets had laid every failure of Socialism on the blockade and used it hh a stimulus for raising armies, on the ground that the Russians were fighting to save themselves from starvation. With the blockade removed in large part, Mr. Hoover said, the "Bolshevist tyranny" will face coliapso when it fails to relieve suffering. Mr. Hoover thought Russia had no commodities, wheat, llax or cotton, for export, since starvation is acute in the larger cities and the people al most in rug*. The peasants were said to have suiiicient food. "I have advocated ever since last winter." Mr Hoover said. "that the) blockade on Soviet RussiV. should be ; removed on everything except arms 1 and munitions, not because 1 believe! -t would do tin Bolshevist tyranny in ! Huts la any good, but because 1 believe j the removal of the blockade will take! out from under them one of their greatest props For the past year tiiey have iuid every failure of Socialism on the blockade. They daily and hour ly blamed the allied blockade for the shortage of food, clothing and agricul tural implements, and the misery that has arisen therefrom, and they have succeeded in impressing this upon an ignorant people. Thej have also used it as a stimulus to raise armies under the contention that they are lighting to Kavc themselves Irom starvation."

CARROLL TAYLOR At Present General Manager Richmond Ice Delivery Corporation. National Thrift Week?January 17 to 24 Today Is "Share With Others" Day! From a Sermon by David CL Latshaw, D. D. 'The element In thrift which has the most fundamental Interest of them all Is 'Share with others." Thrift without this motive becomes a sordid thing. It la the church's contribu tion iu this great propaganda to Bee that this motive is not omitted in all the plans men shall mako toward the practice of thrift. "The moral mastery of wealth depends npon tho practicc of tho principles of life lived and taught by .Jeeus Christ. "In illustration of this point, I wish to call to your attention the scene in Simon's house, where the words of tho text were ut tered. Read Mark iv. 3-11. Text: To what purpose has this waste of tho ointment been made? Two types of thought and action were brought together in Simon's house. One was represented by the woman with tho gift, tho other by Judas, the keeper of the bag. The woman gave. Jydas and some of his comrades 'had indignation among themselves' at her giving. They pointed out how the value of tho ointment might have been given to the poor; but tho value of the ointment In commercial terms was evidently their main interest. 'Above three hundred shillings' was their quick computation. It hurt their sordid souls to see it 'wasted' on Jesus. "Then Jesus mado judgment. 'She hath wrought a good work on me,' He said, 'she hath anointed me for my burial.' What a revelation this must have been to the wo man! A gift born of love goes to the realms of lifo where human knowledge cannot fol low it. Then He said, 'Wheresoever the gos pel is preached, throughout tho whole world, that which this woman hath do'no shall be spoken of as a memorial of her.' In other words, tho application of this principle of giving shall be as universal as a principle in economics. "Two types of thought and action still strugglo for supremacy in the world. The one shares with others; the other gets and holds for itself. One is the school of Jesus, the giver; the other the school of Judas, the getter. One livos, earns, saves, spends, in vests, shares with others, in tho light of tho command, 'Inasmuch as ye did it unto one of tho least of these, my brethren, ye did it unto me.' Tho other hides in the Bhadow of the ago-old theory, 'Look out for number ono/ and 'Everybody for himself.' To such all giving is 'wasto.' Which is right? "We cannot follow the woman who gave the ointment, for she drops out of sight. We do know, however, that her brief hour on tho stage of life has powerfully influenced the whole world, as Jesus stated that it would. Wo can follow tho record of Jesus, 'who camo not to bo ministered unto, but to minister,# and to givo Himself as a ransom for many.' "Bot first, lot us see how tho theory of Judas worked out in his life. He could not bear to see tho sentimental folly of this wo man; for, in his judgment, this was all her gift had meant. Ho reacted' powerfully in the other direction. Ho also saw the inevi table cross in the path of Jobub. A principle which led to a cross, was an Impractical, wasteful theory, to Jndas. "Tho woman gave her ointment, which waa the measure of her beat; and Jesus waa about to give His life. In the practice of such a theory, what was to becomo of Judaa? Aa the rat gets out of a sinking ship, so Jndas determined to sever his relation with Jesus. He waa too clever to becomo the victim of tho teaching of Jesus, as it worked oat in actual living. He would live on the well-tried, world-accopted principle of 'Look out for number one.' He thought of the friendship of Jesus; but what was the friendship of a dying man, aa compared with thirty pieces of silver, and what the ailver could buy? He would not lock friendship, if he had the sil ver. It is Btrango how the 'Look out for number one* theory will justify every selfish impulse a man may have. Every panderer who lives on the weaknesses of men?every harpy who preys on tho welfare of women and children?every gambler who tosses the liven and happiness of others into the game? hides back of this theory of life. "Judas acted on hiR theory while he forgot the price he paid. He haggled with the ene mies of Jeans over the price of his treachery. No doubt ho waa clever enough to get what he considered a good price, and went out, triumphant. "But Jndas had not reckoned with his own soul. He went out alone, for selfishness al ways nets men apart from their fellows. Strangely, his mind dwelt more upon his lost friendship with Jesus than upon the "silver now in hio bag. By all his selfish reasoning, he could not keep his mind on what ho had gained. The solution of his problem by the well-reasoned logic of selfishness did not sat isfy his own soul, and be despised himself, aa generations of men have since despised him. Judaa was not clever enough to escape tho penalty of remorse. It drove him to despair. "With the information Judaa had given them, the priests plotted against the life of Jesus, and chuckled at tho bargain they had made. Suddenly there rushed out of the Bhadows of the great temple the dishevelled figure of Judas. In his despair he had rent his garments and torn his hair. In frenzy ho dashed the thirty pieces of silver on the mar ble floor, and cried out, in a loud voice, 'Take it back, for it is tho price of Innocent blood!' Tho answer waa the heartless sneer of all thoso who barter in human life?'What Is that to us? Soo thou to that.' And Judan went out and hanged himself. Jndaa' theory of 'Look out for number one' had como down with a crash. "We can now follow Jesns, who la teaching, the world that it i9 'better to give than to ro celvc.' He was taken by His enemies, given a false trial, and condemned to death on the cross. Ho did not ufo supernatnral power to nave Himself, or to punish His enemies. He gave His lifo for tho world. "Money is hard to give only because it is a symbol of life. -In tho logic of selfishness, tho life of Jesua was wasted; but God put his Boal of approval on tho life of Jesua, and the grave could not hold Him. Today men everywhere see the solution-of tholr problems in obedience to Him. As the centuries go by, His authority is to cover tho entire earth. In tho woman who gave in accordance with her measure; in Jesus, who gave His life; and in Judas?we have tho great issues of lifo. Which Bchool of thinking is right?the school of Jeaus, or the school of Judaa? Which kind of living waates and which con serves life? Every man must answer, and his answor will determine the kind of a man he is. "May we not pat back of all of oor study and plana for the promotion of thrift, the high purpose of our Lord, and, in the best measure of our ability, share with others tho rewards of thrifty life?"
