OIL With the farm financial picture mtinuing bright despite the Febru •y break in commodity prices, there is been no evidence so far of irmers starting to trim the*ir buy of machinery for their fields or irnishings for their homes. Delivery of farming equipment lis spring and summer still will not i able to keep pace with the de- mand, dealers said this week and house furnishings, new automobiles, etc., are being bought as eagerly as before Veil II and livestock prices receded! One effect cf the price-break, how ever, is a loted unwillingness of farmers to pay “Grey-market” prices for needed farm equipment in [strict 3 where that form of trading had blecome a practice. In th wake of the weakening of “grey market” dealings, it was learned that in some farming areas premiun is much as $1000 above list prices had been paid for trucks Bluffton missionaries to the north ern provinces of India, on the Tibetan border, were caught for a time in the Indian communal riots, according to a letter received this week from Rev. and Mrs. Charles Warren Rev. and Mrs. E. B. Steiner and Dr. and Mrs. Bradford Steiner. Rev. Warren formerly served as a temporary pulpit supply pastor at the Bluffton Ebenezer Mennonite church. Mrs. Waren and Dr. Steiner are children of Rev. and Mrs. Steiner, and saw their parents for the first time in 10 years when they sailed from this country, arriving in India, on June 7. After the family reunion ir Bombrftr, the two newly arrived families went to a missionary lang uage school in Landour, and were there when the communal riots broke out. As a result they left earlier than had been planned to take up their missionary duties in the north ern Indian provinces. Altho they suffered no harm in the riots, they were delayed at one railroad station for 10 days before they could pro ceed, and Dr. Steiner and Mrs. Warren gave madical assistance to the local Moslem refugee camp.

In Remembrance They never quite leave us, Our dear ones who have passed Through the shadows of death To the sunlight above A thousand sweet memories Are holding them fast To the places they blessed With their presence and love. The work which they left And the books which they read Speak mutely, though still, With an eloquence rare, And the songs that they sang, The words that they said, Yet linger and sigh on the desolate air. And oft when alone, and oft in the throng, Or when evil allures us, or sin draw eth nigh, A whisper comes gently, “Nay do not the wrong.” And we feel that our weakness Is pitied on high.
