The International Sunday School Lesson For De
'cember 8 Is: "Joseph Made Ruler of
Egypt"—Genesis 41:33, 34
This is the day of fulfilled dreams,
the import a file has became the mat
ter-of-fact. Fiction has been out
done. What, with the Gorman tleet
dragging its shameful and Impotent
way through two lines of British
ships; with our armies triumphant
on German soil; the boastful and im
pious kaiser an ignominious fugi- ,
tivo from his .own people and from
the allies, our soldiers coining home
as heroes: Alsace-Lorraine back
where it belongs; the ancient Ji° rrol
of the subjection of little Christian
nations to the bloody Turk ended
forever, and all Asia freed from tyr
anny and atrocity—surely this is a
day olitracing wildest fancy. Di earns
do come true.
Nowaday we pedc|ive that the
most impractical of men is the "prac
tical" man, who "hns no time" for
sentiment. The true realist is the,
idealist. The dreamers are the doers;
for the fullilbucnt of their dreams le
gions of "practical" men toil with-,
out understanding. Verily, "Where
there is no vision the' people perish."
Joseph, the dreamer, saved his fam- j
ily and their world. The most suc
cessful statesman of our time used j
to be sneered at as a mere "dream- j
The Great Partnership
When we look into the story-book 1
career of Joseph, the dreamer, we j
find that, with-all his shortcomings,'
he was in partnership with the liv- i
ins God. Xlis faith in the unseen!
Jehovah was the greatest fact nbout \
him. With religion a central reality,
he let all things else fall Into subor-1
dinate place. Definitely, and in youth;
which is the logical time for the
great decision. Joseph seems to have
chosen to cast his lot in with Hod.
And that tlrm must have real pros

into a cistern and sold to Mtdinnltes
and carried into slavery in Egypt,

Potiphar. He did his work so well

_ Ail fld Question For To-day
This matter of the fiuding of one's
best place and employment is given
world-wide acuteness by the prospec
tive return to their homes of millions j
of soldiers. How shall they fit into 1
the new conditions? What readjust
ments are necettary? In what way
will they affect the existing order?;
Timid home-folk are more fearful j
about new conditions than are the!
battle-taught soldiers themselves, j
They have "found themselves" and |

Light for the hour is shed py this i
Joseph story, for it is a study iu '
efficiency. The man who can is the
man who will. In times of flux ami
stress, the competent stand. AlreadyJ
we have seen that the first to be
discharged from the big plants are
the slackers and the clock-watchers, j
The efficient person ;s sure of suc
cess anywhere, be it in mid-Russia
or in in id-Africa.
Joseph was efficient* even as a
slave. His religion made him a good
servant, as well as a good priifie min
ister. There was a constant and vi
tal connection between his ideals and
his duties. This gave him character
and self-respect. Ho valued lua own :
manhood, regard les of his status
in society, it was this moral integ- 1
lity that enabled him to Withstand
the wiles of the sensual wife of his :
master. •
When tempted, he struck the key
note to the solution of our present'
social problem: "How can I do this j
great wickedness and sin against
God? our day's radical tendency is,
to eliminate from the sex question 1
all these large considerations of loy- 1
alty to man, to society and to God. |
An arrant anarchy is substituted for j
ancient fidelity. Straight-flung into I
the teeth of a loose-thinking and j
loose-living world we must proclaim i
the eternal truth that there are sane- !
titles in life which must be Kept in- I
violate, and that who o violates them i
sins against -God. To talk of "social |
indiscretions" which we mean clear- ;
cut transgressions of the lawp of man
and God is a dangerous euphemism. I
This is not the place to enter, into ,
a discussion of tlip large aspects cf
the theme; but from my studies in i
Russia and Europe. I am convinced j
that a lack of the fundamental spirit I
of loyalty—all kinds of loyalty—is ;
at the basis of tiie rising spirit of
Bolshevikism which threatens so
ciety. Never Jhave we more greatly !
needed the state of mind which says. ;
'•'How can I do this great wickedness •
and sin against God?"
Fidelity landed Joseph in jail; but
that was the shortest route to he
rulership of Egypt; just as until a
few weeks ago, one entered the Notre
Dame Cathedral in Paris byway of
a hideous tunnel of sandbags, or as
one goes into an oriental pnlpce by
means of a miserable alley. In the
jail to which Joseph went for hight
eousness sake were Pharaoh's butler
and baker, with dreams to be solved
by him; thus establishing, by the
unlikeliest sort of providence, his
contact with Egypt's throne.
"God moves in a mysterious way.
His wonders to perform."
A Famine Story For Famine Times ,
Dreams play a striking part in the ]
biography of this young Hebrew i
dreamer. First, Joseph dreamed; j
then the two court officials dreamed, '
and then Pharaoh himself dreamed !
—a dream of seven fat cows coming j
up from the Nile, followed by seven j
lean bows which devoured them: and i
in parallel, of seven full heads of
wheat that were devoured, by seven
scrawny heads of wheat that came
after them. In those ilgures Joseph,
when called, saw seven years of
plenty for Egypt, to be followed by
seven years of dire famine.
Famine Is an old, old story, now
newly real to a large part of the
earth's population. We should look
well to the present condition, for it
is the last we shall eVer see. As I
talked one day, east of the Jordan,
with an Arab and his wife and child!
who had fled from Beer-skeba be
cause of famine. I realized how old
their story was; for thousands of
years people have been driven by
famine from one part of this region
to another. Now that is all over.
Transportation and communication
and a sense of world solidarity have
chased the specter of famine from
the earth.
Amid the surrender of the armies
and ships of the Central Powers, we
have missed the full significance
of the sailing of Mr. Hoover, to take
counsel with the allied nations for
the feeding of the world. Implied in
that fact is the other, that North
America has become the almoner
region of earth. Hoover is the mod
ern Joseph. He stands for the new
era, wherein each accepts responsi
bility for all. so that in the day's or- j
der there cannot be hunger permit
ted anywhere. Before ever a league
| of nations is realized, wo accept the
i New Testament teaching that we
i who are strong ought to bear the
burdens of the weak.
Wherever there is food to-day. It
Is to bo shared with hungry peo
< pies. The Josegh principle that the
fat valley of the Nile —which Is the
i most productive soil anywhere in
1 the world, as well as the most ex
pensive agricultural land —should
feed the hungry of Palestine and Sy
ria has been given a Inrge expan
sion of application. Manitoba and
tho Dakotus and Argentine ami the
| Haurau and Manchuria and Liberia
• and Cpper Mesopotamia and Asia
s Minor now are to be marshaled to
their fullest productivity for all man
kind's sake. In the train of Joseph
I follow a new school of Hoovers, eco
nomists, scientists, philanthropists
and missionaries, to feed the hungry
everywhere. In apoiher year, pio
. tures of famine victims will be out
oi date everywhere.
>luking Ready to Make Good

Joseph's adventures, is largely u rec
ord of an imaginative young ivan
making ready to make good. His

i devious ways and lie met it, awake

I took the baby to visit her own

j will not even look at her father,

arguments between the husband and'

MRS. S. |
I think you are all taking a baby's
whimsical conduct far too seriously,
I and it is a great mistake to allow
bitter feelings to develop because of
i it. Very young children often go
'through phases of this sort, but wise,
! parents pay no attention to them, i
! Sometimes a baby will cry at the up- j
| proach of any man whatever. It is J
i not likely. 1 should say not even pos- i
j sible. that the child was taught an I
i aversion to her father, as you seem to I
; believe. *
