STUDENTS TO CHIGE SCHOOL SESSIONS Prof. Dibble Will Let Them De cide; New Move Would Be Great Advantage to Athletes A new arrangement for a change of sessions every ten weeks instead of every four weeks is now being dis cussed at Central High school. The new plan as presented to the stu dent body by Professor Howard G. Dibble yesterday will provide for change of sessions only four times a year instead of ten times, as has been done. In offering this plan, Professor Dib ble pointed out as a great advantage the fact that athletes' would not have !nrt C »h nge se ® sions every four weeks and thus no doubt better work could be done by them in their studies and eliminate the danger of their being barred from athletic contests on ac count of low standing.

Big Increase in Mail Handled in Harrisburg From present indications the amount of mail handled at the local Post Office during the present year w ill exceed that of former years by many thousands of pounds The increase in the parcel post business is partly responsible although first and second class matter is making a big gain over former years Within the last month a million cata logs from a New York mail order house have been distributed in Cen tral Pennsylvania. Another large con signment is due from a Middle West firm. With the launching of the Fall advertising campaigns by local indus trial and business concerns the amount is expected to take another big jump. Plans and specifications for thc new addition and improvements to the Post Office have been received by Postmaster Frank C. Sites from Washington. Several contractors have already inspected them.

Ellis.) Literature is full of dramatic con trasts, because it is a reflection, even though Inadequate, of real life. An up-to-date writer of scenarios for the "movies" could scarcely devise a more unlikely situation that that In which this week's lesson finds Elijah, the hero of last week's study; the man who had l>ent a king to his will, filled the eye of a nation, and. In the most dramatic religious combat of all his tory, had defeated the heathen Priests. His prayer had brought fire from Heaven, and his prayer had ended the long and bitter drought of three years. The accolade of God had been on his shoulder. . . . Now we see him running away from a vindictive woman! In the mood of spiritual exaltation which had followed the spectacular victory of Mount Carmel, Elijah, reconciled to the convinced and con verted king, had run before his chariot all the way to Jezebel, a feat possible only to such a hardy and conditioned physique .is that of this desert-dwell er. Doubtless, in a vague way, Elijah assumed that now the worship of Je hovah would be restored at the pal ace. What great plans of re-establish ing the honor of God In Israel throng ed his bvatn as he ran toward Jezebel. Both king and prophet, however, had reckoned without the woman In the case. If Ahab had thought that his wife would be converted by the dra matic trial by tire, he little knew Jezebel. More than most women, that tigress was dominated by personal prejudices, and not by principles of reason. She gnashed in fury over the fate of her pet priests. As for her arch-enemy, Elijah, she could not with hold the treat that. "As surely as you are Elijah and I am Jezebel, may the gods do to me what they will. If I do not make your life as the lift- of one of tliem by to-morrow about this time." A nice, lad.v-llke sentiment that! The prophet who had confionted a hostile king and nation, wltn jeers and taunts and easy assurance, collapsed as this woman's fury. The narrative succinctly says, "He was afraid and arose and went for his life." Discouraged, despairing and seem ingly defeated, Elijah restfmed his exile life, and fled south across country to far Beersheba. Public speakers can understand his mood. Often a man has swayed a great audience, ana then re turned to the loneliness of his hotel to "eat bitterness." as the Chinese say, in the full assurance that life is not worth living. This was for Elijah The "preacher's blue Monday." It was opera singer's "nerves;" the athlete's "day after." Out from Beersheba the prophet went, taking to the desert in all his troubles as naturally as a bird flees to its nest or a fox to Its hole, and sitting down under a Juniper tree (probably the broom plant) prayed that he might die. The blue devils of discouragement had him on the run. "It is enough." he cried; he was ready to quit. What a succession of Elijahs have sat under that Juniper tree: it is one. of the most popular vacation re sorts on earth, although no place Is worse for the health. Now what Elijah thought was a spiritual experience was primarily a matter of physical health. He needed sleep and a square meal, which God gave him. rather than a lecture on un belief. Many a minister since has had his blues cured in the same way. though the wise angel that provided the food was his wife. Happy is the leader who can find refreshment after exceptional toil in a fishing trip, a golf course, or a tramp through the woods. Elijah needed relaxation for his nerve strain, and he needed to go apart where his vision of relative values would be clearer. Cheer up. Elijah: you are not a coward because you have let your body get the whip hand this once: but you should sequester yourself quietly for a fresh revelation of the mind of God. In an ideal state of Christian or ganization we shall take better care of our prophets. Some saints will pur sue a "day after" ministry, providing cheer for the lonely man who the night before inspired a multitude. Every convention might have a confi dential "cheer-up committee." to show appreciation to speakers. It is rare for a man to receive even the news paper reports of his addresses, as he goes from place to place; and letters of thanks are almost as unusual. Once in Baltimore a man spoko to a meeting of laymen: and the next day he re ceived a long telegram signed bv dozens of men. thanking him for his address. I know of no parallel for that, however. Such thoughtfulness would soon depopulate the juniper tree. With a hearty meal under his leath er girdle, and with his frazzled nerves soothed by long and repeated sleep, the prophet turned his back on the .luniper tree and started on a desert .lorney. The desire to die had departed. In stead, he wanted to be up and doing. So he set forth to the southeast, for the mountains of Sinai. This trans forming experience which he had un dergone on Mount Carmel turned his thoughts to that other mountain of (>od's presence, Horeh, or Sinai, where the law had been given. Ho would go and fellowship in spirit with that oth er discouraged servant of God, Moses. Leisurely, and with many excur sions. Elijah traveled to Horeb. spend ing forty day in the trip. How he could enjoy such desolate surround ings only lovers of the desert know. This was his native air. Here, rather than in palaces, was his home. In the wilderness, if anywhere, Elijah must get his messages from God. To hlrti the sparse camel thorn, the flinty gray desert, the distant red rocks, were beautiful. He was at home in the fastnesses. With real relief he took up his lodging in a cave in the holy moun tain. All the while. Elijah was suffering with the familiar prophet malady, loneliness. He saw too much of him self. Ingrowing serf-consciousness had attacked him. He needed a newspaper, and intercourse with fellow servants of God The prophet who keeps out of touch with his fellows sins against his own soul. Sam Jones once said to an Ohio audience, "You sisters are dear old things, but you are not post ed." That is what ailed Elijah, as it alls a myriad lugubrious and Pharisai cal saints in our own day; he was not "posted." He did not know what God was doing, or what forces the Lord had under His banner. Many a lonely Christian's faith would be rejuvenated by attendance upon a religious conven tion or conference. There can be too much of any *ood thing, and there was too much of the wilderness for Elijah for he himself bulked too large in the landscape. There is implied rebuke in the sim ple fact that the prophet, who had himself been given an object lesson of Gods greatness, had himself to be taug;nt an object lesson. For Elijah had no sooner settled comfortably in his cave than the voice of Jehovah came to him, saying:, lovingly, as it were. W ell, how about it, Elijah What now?"

Thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek' my life, to take it away." That sounds familiar. It seems to me I have often heard that priggish. Pharisaical, "I, even I only, am left," a good many times. There are whole groups of us Christians who have so little sense of proportion or of hu mor that we think the Lord would bo in a sorry way if it were not for us. We are sure the Church as well as the times are decadent and that we few are the saving remnant. Which means that we are not "posted"; our ego has got in front of our eyesight, hindering our vision." Bidding the self-centered prophet stand on the mount. God gave him an object lesson, which has passed into a familiar figure of speech. In succes sion there passed by a mighty wind, an earthquake and a fire, but the Lord was not in any of them. Then came the still, small voice, and 10, that was the voice of God. Now. as then and ever, the mightiest influences are the quietest the growth of the vegetable kingdom, the shining of the sun, the rise of the tides, the development of the human will and mind. There are purposes to-day forming, all unsuspect ed, In Individual human hearts which may eventually mean more to the world than this great war Itself. The voice of God in the spirit of man Is unheard by the nearest person, but it is the greatest force in the universe. Tlie Knight Errant'* Blunder Picturesque beyond most figures la that of the knight errant, riding alone to champion whatever wrongs he may encounter. Elijah was a sort of knight errant of God. He worlded alone. A wilderness type, he felt no need of people. Now. in Mount Horeb, he was given his lesson. God's type of a good servant Is not the knight errant. His plan is for all His helpers to be "workers together." Co-operation and co-ordination are the laws which he has written deep In nature. No man llveth to himself, and no man worketh to himself. Elijah had com mitted more than one blunder by his bent for solitariness. It not only led him Into a needless mood of depres sion. hut It had also deprived him of the fellowship and stimulus of seven thousand others who had not bowed the knee to Baal, and who were as loyal as he to Jehovah. Also It had deprived this seven thousand faithful ones of his leaderaip. So the startlingly practical message that came to Elijah from the Mount was to thia effect. "Go back among men and organize your work. Do your Job thoroughly, but It is among peo ple that your work muut be done. Learn to be a co-operator. At this very moment, there are two kings to be anointed and an apprentice prophet to be chosen, in order that my work may be carried out. And don't forget, my self-centered Elijah, that you are not the only righteous man in the There are none so blind as those who will not see. There are none so careless as those who will not take advantage of a good nickel smoke when all they have to do is ASK for King Oscar 5c Cigars Get all that's coming to you for your nickel. Regularly Good For 24 Years land. There are seven thousand true hearts in Israel. Go work with and for them; and quit your mooning oft here in the desert." Thus it came to pass that Elijah had his lesson, and went back among the people to do his work. There he chose Elisha, a different type of man entirely, to continue the work which he had begun.
