BIBLE THOUGHT
HOW SINCERE ARE WE?
"They bowed the knee before Him, and mocked
Him.'* (Matt. 27:29).
* * *
Have I ever done that? They stood before the
Saviour, and they bowed to Him as if in deep and
revereet homage, and their bowing was only a
cruel mockery and pretense. When we bow oar
heads, we appear to be saying. "Draw near to me,
my God! I desire to speak fro Thee. Draw near!"
Have I ever mocked Him in the approach?
—J. H. Jowett.
NEW HEIGHTS IN SIGHT FOR PLANE
INDUSTRY
(By BRUCE CATTON)
Uncle Sam's Bureau of Air Commerce is^
going to continue with its efforts to develop
a foolproof airplane that the ordinary man
can fly without risking his neck. \
Eugene L. Vidal, director of the bureau,
matfe this clear in a speech before the re
cent convention of the National Association
of Aviation Editors in Detroit; and after he
had made his speech, all hands went out to
a flying field to have a look at a freakish
new plane that had been built to meet
thtse specifications.
plane cannot go into a stall and
"fifoff on one wing"—the prelude to a
which accounts for fully 70 pe:*|
cent erf all accidents to oprivate flyers. It
cannot nose over when it is landed, no mat
ter how unskillfully the job is done. The(
rawest pupil flyer can take it off
grmmd and get it down again without
cracking up.
-Just what may happen to this plane in
tH#" c&urse of other tests is, of course, prob
lematical. It may develop new "bugs"j
quite as dangerous as the old ones which j
it seems to have dodged. But it is clear]
that it represents a long step in the right
direction, and Mr. Vidal's campaign is am
piy^tostified.
The ordinary citizen does not often have
oerasion t oride in one of the great trans
pcy^planes. When he does, he gets a good,
sale ride, to be sure; but if aviation is ever
to assume in his life a place comparable to
that which the automobile now holds, the
kwf of plane desired by Mr. Vidal will!
have to be perfected.
Today's planes are practically foolproof
—in the hands of expert flyers. But Joha
Citiwen has neither the time nor the money
to make an expert out of himself, and as
long as it takes highly specialized skill to
fly a plane he is going to pass it by.
What he needs is a truly foolproof plane;
one'which approaches the automobile in
safety and simplicity of operation. Let
such a plane be put on the market at a
moderate price—$700 is the figure Mr. Vi
dittos at—and the airplane industry will
i»a*€^the same kind of sensational leap
ahead that the auto industry made a cou
ple qsf decades ago.
There are great possibilities in this. Fly
ing i£ incomparably the greatest sport ever
devised. Let it be made available to the
ofeffflary man on the same sort of terms
thatwmotoring is now available, and the
wjuile course of human living will be pro
foundly altered.
-The oldest and vainest day-dream of the
race/would suddenly construe.
{ V NEWSPAPERS' OPINION 1
o—
v TAXING THE RICH
Just why an individual should be penalised be
cause of his ability to earn more money and invest
ft 1a J^etter advantage than otber people is difficult
t<\ yiderstand.
O* rrafuranhle person feels a resentment apamst
a in i siiaf ill business man who, through his sup«rwr
biMfcess jndgment, has been able to legitimately
amass a sixeable fortune. An old adage to the eor»
trary notwithstanding, aM of us are not similarly
endowed with business judgment ami zeal, and
•aM»H»eopte are afflicted with a laziness that had
pecEang stood in the way of their earning power.
*flff*txend La Washington taday, however, aeews
to be hi the dirpctkm af confiscating fortunes tha'
hanre been earned legitimately and dividing the
wealth irrespective of whether or not the ultimate
beneficiary is deserving. .*
There have bee® many plans for the division of
the wealth, but none of them have ever worked,
and none ever will ba successful—Anderson, S. C.f
T> rA
AWvfT, ' ^
THERE'S ONLY OWE WAY- r
The proems of evolution by which the adminis
tration's program to tax thfc rich chiefly for the
"social" effects is being: transformed into a plan
with greater emphasis upon getting revenue, is in
dicated in the fact that the House committee is now
planning increased levies upon incomes as low as
$90,000—a flgm-e which is hardly large enough to
classify the listing of an individual among the
"bloated plutocrats," whose wealth needs to be
partly confiscated for the good of society.
Even with this extension of the tax plan, how
ever, the total additional revenue that would he
derived is estimated at hardly more than $260,000,
000 a year.
Obviously such an increase in revenues will not
go very far toward balancing the federal budget
at the present rate of expenditures, in which the
excess over receipts is running into the billions.
To balance such a budget, very drastically in
creased taxes upon every element of the citiien
ship wosld be necessary. In fact, one doubts if any
administration would seriously propose the vastly
heavier taxes necessary to balance budgets of the
present size, for they would be an intolerable bur- j
den upon the whole citizenship.
The only way the federal budget is ever going
to approach a condition of balance will be through
very great reductions in expenditures, regardless of
whatever additional taxes congress is at afl likely
to impose. Until we see some definite evidence of
sharp curtailment of expenditures we may expect
a continued unbalanced budget and increasing na
tional debt; and the present fever of increasing
taxes will not mislead any averageiy well informed
citizen on that point.—Greenville, S. C., News.
SPEED AND DRUNJLS
"You ought to say something about speed de
mons on our streets."
"You ought to start a movement to get drunk
drivers off the highways."
Well, we thought we had talked omrselres blue
in the face and said enough about these two issues
to make our readers disgusted.
But when speed demons and drtink 4rivers get
off the streets and highways it wili be when tin
people rise in righteous indignation and demand
that sufficient punishment be meted out to stop the
menace.
Saturday a "reported drunk" neaity collided wft,h
a csr operated by a local lady. After missing the
car the driver sped away, bo regard being paid to
those in the mtmerfiate neighborhood whose safety
was in jeopardy when he ran his own car onto the
curb and walks.
Yesterday a party stated that a self-appointed
vigilance committee would have to be formed to
stop the abuses of the highways. And unless dras
tic action and severe penalties are soon meted out
by those in authority it is possible that laymen will
• . . * • / "it
have to organize, "v
Certain it is that innocent users of the highways
ought not to be endangered by foolish drivers and
drink-crazed mind?.—Rock Hill, S. C., Herald.
LACKING THE PIONEER SPIRIT
Tha government's attempt to colonize unemploy
ed in a rich Alaska region proves that spiritual as
well as material resources are necessary. The col
onists have raised all sorts of peevish complaints
and some are ready to give up the enterprise ar\d
go back on relief.
The contrast with the spirit of th^ gehuino pio
neer who, by his own courage, enterprise and en
durance, conquered the wilderness, the wild ani
mals, and the still wilder Indians, is violent. Those
pioneers had mighty little of the equipment that is
furnished to those sent to Alaska; but they had the
grit and purpose in themselves.—Newberry, S. C.,
Herald.
WILL BE MUCH MORE LATER
The attitude of persons on relief rolls who no
^longer request but demand aid is causing no little
l perplexity among the administrators, one of them
is saying.
And there will be more of this, much more!
The longer certain types of people are thus bene
! fitted, the more inclined they are to take the char
ity not so much as a kindness, bat as that to which
j they are entitled. It is their right, they contend,
j And America faces increasing volumes of this
spirit in the future as the period is prolonged dur
ing which this philanthropy is extended.
The really big job, perhaps* ahead of the coun
try in this field is that of separating the people at
length from this form of benefaction.—Charlotte
Observer.

MORE JUNK RECEIVED
The most trash found in the waste basket of the
average newspaper office comes from the federal
government. Not less than 20 pieces of mail daily
are received by the daily 'newspapers. ••
And now one more department has added to this
waste. The federal bureau of invesrigatioM of the
U. S. department of justice has plae<VJ newspapers
on their mailing lists to receive buileiips of crim
inal "men wanted."
This is just one more, evidence Af the waste.that
is boing engaged in by Washington officials. News
pipers do not want their mails cluttered up with
Che trash being sent out.—Rock Hill, S. C-. Herald.

GEE, WHAT A COMPLIMENT!
Bv WICKES WAMBQLDT
Today I was shown the public
school report card of a little jrirl
in whom I am deeply interested.
Dn the bottom of the eiJ*d her
teacher nad writ
ten theso conv
ments in her I
own ha ilcf:
"We na\? en
joyed having
Edda May in our
room this term.
Her attitude to
ward the chil
dren is so sweet
and helpful.
"I really think
the work has
been too easy
for her; but she
Wamboldt has never com
plain?d.
"I think we gained more from
having her with us than she
gained from being with us."
If any such statement as that
had appeared on my feport card
when I was a youngster, my
folks would hurriedly have sent
{or the doctor. They would have
known I was sick unto death.
But I happen to know that the
teacher's comment is an active
index to that little girl's char
acter. She has made a wonder
ful start in life. Now, it is up
to her to keep it up. 1 believe
she will.
One achievement calls for an
other. More and more is ex
pected of the person of superior
qualifications—and rightly so.
Keep going, Edda May. You
have the edge now on most of us
grown folks. i
It is the continuous obligation
of al lof us to try to do better
than our best. It is only by that
means that we can progress.

APPRAISING HIS VALUE
Ask tfc'e average man about
another man, "How much is he
worth?'' and the answer will be
given in dollars and cents. He is
worth a thousand dollars, ten
thousand dollars, a million dol
lars—or what have you.
If the man' inquired about is
honest and industrious, if he is
Rood to his family, square with
his neighbors, if all his life he
has lived on the level, feared
God and loved his fellows, but
has not accumulated a conse
quential amount of real or per
sonal property, the answer will
be, "He isn't worth anything."
We human beings are a funny
bunch of animals, aren't we?
