The Books Boys Like
Picking out books, for a boy to read is one of the
most fascinating and enjoyable jobs there Is. There
is such a wealth of good books to choose from, for
one thmc: and mcr.:. reading off the titles will gen
erally arouse such a keen reminiscent thrill that one's
boyhood, for the moment. Is victoriously recaptured.
The taste of adult society changes, from genera
tion to generation. But boyhood is more conservative.
1^ sticks to the favorites of its fathers. e.s a general
thin*. A new bock has a hard gauntlet to run. It
takes a generation or two for boyhood to accept it.
The list of boyhood's most favored books is one of
the most exclusive circles in the world. It is hard to
break into, but once a book does get in It stays for
r long t:me.
Thai Denver librarian who recently queried a num
ber oi famous men on their most prized boyhood
books got seme answers that prove the point. What.
:n this modern mechanical age, was at the head of
the list? What but ‘ Robinson Crusoe '-with “The
L st cf the Mohicans” in second place, and such
mu: nmcent romances as Mark Twain. Dickens, Jules
X erne and Scott coming close behind.
Buying books for a boy may be fun but it is not a
t:uk to undertake lightly. An adult can accept a
* poor book and forget it: boyhood needs something
that w ill stay by it. It needs something with a spark
of genius in it: something that will tickle the imagi
nation. and start the spinning of dreams and the
weaving of visions, out of which a secure background
for a whole lifetime can be built. •
A fearful amount of tripe is published in the way
of boys’ books. There seems to be a notion abroad
t at -a boy's book need not be as well written as one
Mat is intended for his more critical father. But
children have a greater capacity than we give them
credit for. ar.d the man who intends to write for
them might consider the fact that most of the books
that boyhood gives immortality to were written, or
i: nally, for grown-ups. Scott. Dickens. Cooper. Du
mas. Mark Twain—they wrote for adults.
Of course, there arc exceptions. There are “The
Jungle Books” and “Captains Courageous,” for in
F'ance: and “The Wizard of Oz." and “Uncle Remus,”
«:.d a few ethers But they are not many. Even
“Alice in Wonderland” holds as much for adults as
for children, if not more.
In fact, that is true of most really good “boys’
h ok: We who are older can read them with as
n :eh enjoyment as cur sons. In a few cases, our
changing ta:‘es may have played us false: Scott and
Cooper, in particular, arc a little bit off the track
for most of us in 1930. But is there a grown man
nr-where who could not re-read "Huck Finn.” or
'■Tm Years Before the Mast” at least once a year?
^ Drift Toward Smaller Cities
A :or;.!ig to the Springfield News, an influential
Ohio daf.; . between 1919 and 1925 the 25 larger cities
ir. Me United States lost 227,000 w-age earners, or an
r Mm of their total. The News adds that in the
same ‘ime the smaller cities of the republic gained
55,000 wage earners. And then Its editorial writer
goes on to say “the report of the National Bureau of
Economic Research has shown that industry Is slip
ping away from the larger cities into the smaller ones
and the concentration of population and industry,
which began with the machine age, has ceased In
other words, the drift is the other way. The News
asks the Question and then answers it:
“What has happened?”
This is the answer: “Electric power is what ha'
happened. Electric power transmitted economically
over wires makes it no longer necessary to plant fac
tories near the mine. It makes power for the small
factory* as cheap as the power for large. Experience
has proven that a certain sort of small plant, given
the advantage of cheap electric power, is more econ
omical than the large plant.” is the conclusion of the
Ohio newspaper. Its verdict is. “now* we see the de
centraliza*. :n of industry. In two years the power
used in 2GC.0C3 smaller plants increased by nine per
cent. Instead of shipping goods to the people we are
beginning to si p the factories to the people.
“Ohio is a greet industrial state. After a survey of
census figures the editor of one of its leading news
papers declares that the new* census shows that the
small village of 60 years ago, Its environing farmers
driven into the factories, has continued to shrink but i
the smaller cities with their small Industries taking
on new life are growing. In other words he says the 1
industries which the steam engine packed together
the electric motor is tahing a part and a new rural
civilization but industrial rather than agricultural
is a-building.”
And this is just what is happening in Texas. Texas
rivers and streams are being harnessed. Power sites
are in demand. Power sites are valuable. Impounded ;
water is valuable. Control of flood waters is one of
the demands of the hour. There Is a new Texas, a
new civilization, modern legislation Is demanded and
the adoption of the amendment to the constitution is
a reminder that the people are beginning to think fo
themselves.
It was a knockout for the poison-distributing ty
phoid Marks and Marys of Texas politics. Of course
many excellent men and women voted against the
amendments for reasons that they believe it is the
sworn or rather the sacred duty of a citizen to vote
against all amendments to a constitution that was
drafted and approved by the people of the common
wealth more than 56 years ago when livestock in
dustry was the basic Industry of Texas, the ranges
were free, the barbed wire fence unknown, wild game
abounded everywhere and the total population was
just a little beyond the 2.000.00C mark. Texas is or the
way. Push the vehicle of progress along. Get out
of the ancient ruts. Give the commonwealth a chance
to grow.
Aimee’s Judge Lost His Job
There are tunes when the American voter is ex
ceedingly discriminating. This happens when his or
her hat is on straight. Superior Court Judge Carlo?
S. Hardy of Los Angeles was known as Aimee Semple
McPherson's judge. He received a check for $2500
from Aimee when the trials ar.d tribulations of the
fascinating evangelistic enchantress electrified the
reading public. He was a candidate for re-election.
What happened is ancient history now. A majority of
the voters of Los Angeles tossed the judge into the
ditch of defeat. 4e was weighed, found wanting and
then sent to the big thicket where the lair.e ducks go.
This should be a reminder to judges the country
ever that the people are the masters, when they as
sert themselves. Of course the judge had a de
fense. He said the check was for legal services ren
dered. Now he will be permitted to practice all of the
time and not some of the time. It appears that jus
tice and not the Judge is sacred in Los Angeles. At
any rate justice was held sacred and not the judge
when Carles S. offered for re-e’ection.
Diaries and Privacy
The sculptor in Richmond. Va., who left directions
in his will that his diary, which he had kept up to
date for 73 years, be burned without being read by
anyone, had. it seems to us. the right idea about the
proper place a diary should have.
A diary, if it means anything at all. is composed
of one's most private and intimate musings cn one's
self, one’s life and one's acquaintances. Its excuse
for existence is the fact that its author wants to get
things off of his chest but does not feel like lettinR
his fellow men hear him do it. It is strictly a per
sonal matter. Hence, when the diarist die?, he does
not want others to look at It. They would get too
cloee a glimpse at his own soul.
The man who writes his diary with the notion that
someone else, some day. will read it is not really a
diarist at all; he is simply an exhibitionist. The
genuine diary exists only for the writer of it.
One of fhe problems of the hour Is how to get the
Wickersham committee out of a huddle.

Overcoming Racial Prejudice
Text: Matt. 8:5-13
And when Jesus was entered into
Capernaum, there came unto him
a centurion beseeching him.
And saying. Lord, my servant lieth
at home sick or the palsy, grievious
ly tormented.
And Jesus said unto him, I will
come and heal him.
The centurion answerea and said,
Lord. I am not worthy tha tthoui
siiouldst come under my roof: but
speak the word only, ana my ser
vant shall be healed.
For I am a man under authority,
having soldiers under me; and I say
to this man, Go and he goeth; and
tc another, Come, and he cometh:
and to my servant, Do this, and he
doeth it.

Overcoming Racial Prejudice.
Matt. 8:3-13.
• • •
BY WM. E. GILROY. D. D.
Editor of The Congrcgationalist
The title of our lessen is rather
startling, for it is amazing to realize
that after all these 1900 years of
Christian progress and Christian in
fluences race prejudice in our mod
ern America and in other parts of
the world is still a tragic reality,
constituting perhaps, the deepest and
most difficult of all our problems.
Sometimes or.c hopes that the
situation is getting better, and then
some violent outbreak occurs which
shows that the progress has been
very superficial or very limited ir.
Its area.
A few years ago In our own land
v.e associated race prejudice largely
with the south, and many in the
north, especially In the days of the
abolition movement in New England
pointed the finger of seem at the
slave areas in the routh; tut during
the course of the rears while race
prejudice in many ways has reced
ed in the south, it has grown in the
north, and the line between white
and black in certain areas of north
ern society and in the minds and
dispositions of many individuals is
as sharply drawn as it ever was in
any other part of the country.
On the otb'T hand, in many parts
where race prejudice at one time
dominated almost every sphere of
life. greaf progress In kindliness and
consideration has been made, and
many individual*, largelv because of
their effort to make Christianity a
practical reality, have come to an
entirely different attitude.
Some Progress Made
In my own circle of friends are
some Christian men and rvrnen
trained in the south, whose forbears
were owners of slaves and defended
the Institution of slavery, who are
today among the foremost leaders
in seeking Justice for all without re
gard to race or color.
The problem of black and white
In America has been so acute that
wfe have not. perhaps, realized the
extent to w*hich racial prejudice Is
found outside that particular area,
but as our American commonwealth
has grown In population and in the
heterogeneity of its 120.000.000 in
habitants racial prejudices manifest
themselves In various ways and with
various degrees of acuteness.
In some sections it is strongly
marked against the Jew, In other
sections It discriminates against the
Italian or other peoples from the
southern Mediterranean area. There
are still places where it operates
against the Irish, and other places
where the Irish, in the majority,
manifest it against those who have
come to America in succeeding
waves of immigration.
Yet when we come to study what
our race and nation has given to
the world, the treasure is very mark
ed When we consider the pains
and sorrows ar.d the joys and bless
ings. we realize that human nature
partakes of all these things alike.

WTien Jesus heard it. be marveled,
ar.d said unto them that followed.
Verily, I say unto you, I have not
fcund so great faith, no, not in Is
rael.
And I say unto you. That many
shall come frcm the east and west,
and shall sit down with Abraham,
ted Isaac, and Jacob, in the king
dom of heaven.
But the children of the kingdom
shall be cast out mto outer darkness;
there shall be weeping and gnash
ing of teeth.
And Jesus said unto the centurion,
Go thy way; and as thou has be
lieved, to be it done unto thee. And
his servant was healed in the self
rame hour.
We are members of a common hu
manity, in a common world, with a
common God and Father. And the
amazing thing is that those who be
lieve in this God and who profess
to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ
con still retain within their hearts
and attitude the rule of prejudice,
distrust ar.d hate.
Mutt Practice Godliness
How are we geing to overcome
these prejudices except as they were
overcome in New Testament times?
The New Testament is. in fact, a
very instructive document in deal
ing with all these things. What is
needed today is to give new mean
ings in belief and practice to what
we call godliness. How can a man
be godly and yet have prejudice In
hie heart toward his neighbor be
cause that neighbor 15 of a different
language? Does God have these
dislikes and prejudices? Is h® really
the God of all men. or is he the God
simply of white Anglo-Saxons?
It is true that the problem of
o.ertbrowing race prejudice and of
building up a society in which it
does not exist is not by any means
as simple as the principles upon
which it rests. But because the
ptobiem is difficult is there any
warrant for our failure to solve It.
or any warrant for our establishing
in cur personal lives courses of con
duct that are at variance with the
high principles of love and justice
to all?
Much can be done to establish
right relationship through law. but
alter all the true solution will come
as individuals have courace to prac
tice in their own lives the Gospel
cf Jesus in all its breadth and in*
Ciusiveness, and as they strive
through their individual conduct
and influence to make this ulti
mately the law and custom of the
society in which they live.
