Officials Receive In
BERLIN, Sept. t9.—(/P)—Waste of
tine and trial of temper, so often
inflicted npon a defenseless public
by bureaucratic officials in admin
istrative departments, have com* un
der the ban of fcarl Severing, so
cialist minister of home affairs of
Instructions have gone forth to
his departments that the public are
entitled to courteous treatment in
all cases; that nobody is to be kept
waiting longer than is absolutely
necessary, and that apologies are ro
be tendered in such cases.
“Nothing is more exasperating
than having to wait a long time, es
pecially when a payment of money is
concerned,” the minister observes
Seating accommodation is to be
provided in all public offices and
correspondence is to be conducted
in polite language instead of the
dictatorial phraseology so often em
“It should be a point of honor
with all officials to meet irritation
on the part of the public in n calm
and reasonable manner,” the minis
terial order reads.
Newspapers profess to be over
whelmed by the good tidings. One
captions it: “So be it, amen.”

GALATIANS T. 00
By I>R ALVIN E. BELL
With the exception of Jesus of
Nazareth no man has exercised a
greater influence upon the ages than
iSaut of Tarsus.
Paul’s greatnes had its roots in a
home training in the holy scriptures
in which he was taught love for
Jehovah and obedience to his com
mandments. Paul's childhood goes
far in explaining his manhood. This
early home training was followed by
a thorough schooling in the best
schools of his day. Morally and in
tellectually Paul came to maturity
well prepared lor the work God had
awaiting him. He got a wrong start,
indeed, in persecuting the infant
church from the time Stephen on to
his own conversion, but even while
persecuting the cause of Christ he
was absolutely sincere. He thought
he was doing God's will.
Then came that revolutionizing ex
perience on the Damascus road when
Paul was confronted with the vision
of the risen Christ and his challenge,
"Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?
I am Jesus of Nazareth whom
thou persecutest.” From that moment
Paul was a new creature. From the
church’s chief persecutor he became
its chief propagator. He began im
mediately to preach Christ as Son of
God and Saviour of men. After a
brief ministry under a cloud of sus
: .cionas a possible wolf in sheep’s
iothing Paul retired to Arabia,
where he spent from eighteen
months to three years in meditation
„nd communion with God. Return
ing to hit old home at Tarsus he was
found by Barnabas and brought
io Antioch for a fruitful year’s
service in that city, where the dis
ciples were first called Christians.
Antioch instead of Jerusalem had
now become the center of the
church’s activity, and from this
center there went out of the first
foreign missionaries, nearly twenty

At sporting events the announc

EPERNAY, France, Sept. 29.—4JP
-Dom Perignon, the monk who
put the first sparkle in champagne
wine 200 years ago, lives in the
hearts of his countrymen. Great re
ligious celebrations, under the di
rection of Monsignor Keveux, aux
iliary bishop of Rheims, have been
held in honor of the man who put
champagne on the gastronomic map.
Wine growers from all the coun
tryside around Rheims and Epernay
flocked here for the celebrations,
and many a bottle of champagne
hoarded ia dusty cellars was opened
in honor of its inventor. Dom Pe
ngnon was the ceilarist of the wine
cellar of Haotvilliera Abbey. * ,
I years after Christ’s ascension and
great commission to evangelize all
nations. Paul, Barnabas s nd John
Mark made up the missionary party
that set sail for Cyprus, and bore
witness throughout that island,
thence on to the mainland of Asia
Minor where Mark forsook his com
panions, perhaps because < 5 the per
ils and hardships of the journey, and
returned home to Jerusalem.
But Paul and Barnabas went on
undaunted to Antioch in Pisidia,
where they were persecuted and
thrust out of the city. Thence they
went fifty miles eastward to like ex
periences in Iconiura, and from here
forty miles southeastward to Lystra,
where the people were first willing
to worship the missionaries as gods,
had they permitted it, and then turn
ing to the opposite extreme they
stoned Paul and left hm for dead.
But regaining consciousness he went
back into the city and the next
day went on twenty miles eastward
to Derbe, the farthest point reached
on this first journey. Thence, de
spite the perils, they retraced the
entire journey through Asia Minor
after which they sailed back to the
home church at Antioc.
His Second Missionary Journey
After the lapse of five or six years
Paul began his second journey, re
tracing much of the ground covered
in the first, but going for beyond to
carry the gospel into Europe for new
triumphs in Philippi, Thessalonica,
Athens and Corinth.
Considering the difficulties of
travel in Paul’s day, the natural
dangers attending him, and the op
position and persecution of his ene
mies. his missionary journeys must
ever rang with the most heroic un
dertakings and the most epoch
making acomplishments of all ages.
