Farley Will Visit
Texas to See His Friend John Gamer WASHINGTON, Sept. 21.—(£*)— Postmaster General “Jim” Parley’s October visit to Texas—to “meet and do honor to his friend John Gamer”—as the official announce ment put it—apparently will be tfjust that. Texans in Washington, in the congressional delegation and out of it, have been trying ever since Silllman Evans made the announce ment to figure out what political significance, if any, the trip will have. But the answer always is the same—none. Parley’s expressed Intention to attend the opening race at Arling ton Downs will add color to tne event. It will be the first major race Texas has seen in decades where legalised wagering obtains. The list of Texas congressmen who will speak during the Parley tour, which will touch Port Worth, Dallas, Houston and San Antonio, does not contain the name of Sen. Morris Sheppard. The reason given was that he already had accepted speaking engagements out of the state. The senator, known nation ally for his ancient and unchang ing espousal of prohibition, confirms that. He had engagements already booked, he said, for speeches in various southwestern points under auspices of the Woodmen of the World. • • • The agricultural adjustment ad ministration’s recent hearing on a proposed “code” for the citrus in dustry brought forth an unusual apparent accord by the citrus men of the state. Florida representatives were contentious all the way through on this and that point of Jthe code; California’s agreement, wtoo, met pointed objections here and there. But when C. O. Miles, representative of certain coopera tives in the Valley, get up to ex plain the Texas code he did so without hot ile interruption and without need of rebuttal. No voice from Texas, or elsewhere so far as t the record showed, was raised against it. Miles appeared after the recent hurricane had swept the soutn eastern citrus area, and was per mitted to take up the Texas agree ment out of turn because urgent telegrams from the Valley, ana advices from the office of Rep resentative West of Brownsville, even then were telling of the pros pect of a disastrous flood down »*he Rio Grande—a prospect that did not materialize. “Mr. Chairman,” Miles said, “I’ve got to exfflain this code and get through here. I’ve got to get busy right away on relief work.” And so in a crowded hall quieted by realization of the apparent near approach of a new terror for the Rio Grande country he hurriedly read and explained the Texas agree ment. Finished, he asked that Texas be exempted this season from any ex pense incurred by operation of the national code. Florida and Califor nia men interrupted each other in their eagerness to endorse his pro posal. But they suggested, too, that it be officially stated all expense of the national plan would be borne by states other than Texas. Miles, while appreciative of the spirit, didn’t agree entirely with the way It was put. "I thank you—thank you very much,” he told the Floridans and Californians. “But putting it that way might sound a little too much like charity to those rather in dividualistic old Texas boys down there. Since obviously there Isn’t going to by any need of proration of citrus (contemplated in exigen cies by the national plan) down in Texas, let’s Just agree that Texas won’t have to bear any expense of the national agreement this year and let it go at that.” So it was agreed. Some 45,000 communities in the U. S. are accessible only by high ways.

SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON The International Uniform Sun- I day School Lesson for Sept. 24. Golden Text: Be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his night.—Ephesians 6:10. • * • BY WM. E. C.ILROY, D. D. Editor of The CongTegationalist The 12 lessons of the past quar ter have set before us "reat lead ers in Israel, from the time of Jos hua when the Jewish people were emerging from their long captivity and the experiences in the wilder ness Into the consciousness of a new nationhood faced with acute dan gers and problems to an age of na tional glory which has challenged the admiration of the whole world. The story of Solomon and his temple is written large upon the pages of history as the spiritual ideals and aspirations cf the period. But this story must be read in the light of its backgrounds and the struggles through which the nation al and religious consciousness de veloped. • 9 9 The value of the study of the Bible is that it offers so much by way of analogy for our modern life. It is a great book of human exper ience presenting the story of reli gion and preaching to us the lessons of religion .through the realism of daily life, with its temptations, its conflicts and its triumphs in the individual life and with full recog nition of the social factors in the battle with injustice and inequality and in the efforts to build up a commonwealth. Our problems have changed in form and content, but in essence they are the same as the problems of this ancient people of Israel emerging out of bondage and chao tic conditions while its greatest leaders sought to build the life of the people into a unified commun ity in which a common prosperity built upon righteousness and juc tice was the goal. Is not that exactly our task in America at the present hour? Can we do it except as to some extent it was done in ancient Israel? Can we learn to avoid the pitfalls of the past and build more securely? No state can build truly unless it has highminded leaders and a people willing to give heed to its prophets. The stories of these lessons have presented heroic figures, both men and women; Joshua and Caleb, the courageous spies; Deborah, putting the men of her age to shame with her strong and determined leader ship: Ruth, the woman of gentle but persistent loyalty and Hannah the devout mother,. .contributing through her devotion Samuel, the greatest of all leaders and prophets of the period. . . Yet despite all these things one must recognize the measure of fail ure, for the glory of the age of Solomon was followed hv strife and division occasioned by injustices that had been allowed to go uncor rected. Prestige and glory are not enough for a people great kings and rulers cannot effect the salvation of the nation. The welfare of a people rests more deeply upon the quality of its visions and its deeds. It Is in the unselfishness and fairness of the relationships of'ordinary life that a people become welded into strength. No matter hov: much the strength of power or of wealth that a nation may seem to be building up. there is always inherent weakness, the doom of prospective faflilrfe, if greed • and selfishness be present, or if those in authority and power dis regard the factors of elemental jus tice. The strength and power of states depend ultimately upon the welfare of the people. This Is the outstand ing lesson that comes to us from the study of the lives of great lead ers in the era of a nation’s strug gle for life.
