“Can you repeat the exact words
in which the prisoner confessed to

cuting attorney.
“He said, sir, he took the pig."
The judge tried to simplify the
question: “Did the accused say, *He
took the pig,’ or T took the pig’?”
“Oh, your honor, he said he took
it. Your honor’s name wasn’t even
mentioned."

ELMER ON SUMMER
REBORT CEILINGS
OPA Is investigating overcharging
at summer amusement resorts, fol
lowing complaints of exorbitant
prices for hotdogs, soda pop, salami
sandwiches, etc. This column is not
in sympathy. Pleasure seekers at
amusement resorts eat too much.
Nothing they stuff themselves with
is necessary.
We think the dollar hotdog would
be a good thing, with an extra two
bits for mustard. It is responsible
for much of the irritability found at
summer resorts.
But Elmer Twitchell is for ceil
ings on many other items at the sum
mer playgrounds of America. He
wants the OPA to put a limit on
what can be charged for picture
gallery photographs, bathing houses,
sideshow freaks and fortune tellers.
"I demand OPA protection at the
picture galleries,” he snapped to
day. “They are getting twice as
much for a snapshot of me leaning
against a fake cabin cruiser as in
prewar days and I’m using the same
face. When I squawk to the photog
rapher what does he say? He says
photography has gone to war! He
tells me camera parts are hard to
get, that all the best assistants are
in Normandy and that the artist
who painted the backdrop gets SO
per cent more than last year for
the same waves, wfaltecaps and
rocks.”
Elmer was in a temper. "And
take the bathhouses. They sock me
more than ever for a locker, suit
and towel, and when I kick all they
say is, ‘Don’t you know there’s a
war on?’
“There should be ceilings on for
tune tellers, too. I paid SO cents
more for my fortune this summer
than last summer. I insist that the
shortage of tea leaves is bogus and
that gypsies have to pay more for
earrings and hair grease.
*
“They’ve upped the admission
price to see the Two-Headed Boy.
Why? Well, they claim there is a
shortage of two-headed boys due to
the war, but I am yet to see one in
the army or in a war plant.
*
“The Fat Lady is getting Wore
money, and I can see some justice in
that. It must cost her more to keep
fat, but there is one amusement re
sort feature that should be punished
by OPA at once.”
“Who is that?” we asked.
"The lady sword swallower,” said
Mr. Twitchell.
“I paid 10 per cent more to get
into the tent to see her and a flame
eater. About the flame eater I’m not
sure. Maybe flames are harder to
get. But I denounce the alibi of the
sword swallower as wholly without
foundation.”
“What alibi is that?” we asked.
“He had the nerve to tell me that
swords are being rationed,” con
cluded Elmer.

The Pullman company says the

The new sleeping car will not have

of the car, with aisle in the center. It
will be a car of roomettes, each

UNIFORM INTERNATIONAL

chool Lesson
By HAROLD L. LUNDOUIST. D. D.
Of The Moody Bible Inetltute of Chicago.
Released by Western Newspaper Union.
Lesson for August 20

Council of Religious Education; used by

THE PROPHET IN THE LIFE OF
ISRAEL
LESSON TEXT—I Samuel 8:19-21; 7:8-1*.
GOLDEN TEXT—He that hath my word,
let him speak my word faithfully.—Jeremiah
23:28.
Remarkably up-to-date is the
helpful guidance found in this les
son. When our nation finds itself
facing those other nations which
would destroy our Christian faith,
and we know that we need the key
both to a true victory and a satisfac
tory peace, the message of this
scripture comes with fine helpful
ness.
The prophet Samuel (who was
also priest and judge) served God
in ruling his people at a time when
they were under the hard heel of
the Philistines. The way out of op
pression was revealed in God’s
Word, which brought revival and
deliverance—which was not forgot
ten in the day of triumph.
I. God’s Word Declared (3:19-21).
While a prophet had the ministry
of foretelling, his chief work was
forth-telling. He told of the future,
but his larger ministry was to de
clare the message of God. As Sam
uel did this in faithful devotion to
the Lord, there was the immediate
blessing of God which established
the prophet throughout the whole
land.
Those who are timid about "limit
ing” their ministry (imagine that!)
to the Bible should learn of Samuel
that it is the only really effective
message. God will not “let you
down” if you teach and preach His
Word. He let none of Samuel’s
“words fall to the ground” (v. 19)
and He will not desert us as we
give forth His truth.
Note that the Lord Himself came
to strengthen and encourage Samuel
(v. 21). He is just as gracious to
His servants today. He comes to
them in that blessed strengthening
fellowship which stirs their hearts
and fires them anew with holy de
termination.
n. Man’s Heart Revived (7:3-6).
The response of the people to
Samuel’s message was whole
hearted. They were sick of their sin
and idolatry. They proved the
reality of their repentance by put
ting away their heathen -gods.
Such repentance and appropriate
action is a prerequisite to spiritual
revival. God cannot give us His
blessing if we hold on to our sin
and idolatry.
Note how the revival expressed it
self. They gathered together and
prayed (w. 5,6). Spiritual life
thrives on the gathering together of
God’s people. The crisis in Israel
was met by a convocation of the
people. We need to revive the great
soul-stirring religious gatherings of
a generation ago. Go yourself, and
encourage others to go. Let the fire
of God bum, and let those who meet
scatter far and wide as brands
which will light hew fires.
“I will pray,” said Samuel. He
was a great intercessor (I. Sam.
15:11, Ps. 99:6; Jer. 15:1). Revival
starts in the faithful intercession of
a burdened heart. Should we not
ask ourselves, “Have I really
prayed for revival in my church,
my city, and my country?”
111. A Nation Delivered (7:7-11).
“Cry unto God ... he will save
j us,” was the word of Samuel. They
: cried, and He did! “The Lord thun
dered with a great thunder,” and
discomfited the enemies of Israel.
In these days of warfare we might
well cry out, “Lord, do it again,”
1 thunder upon our enemies and de
feat them in such away that they
and we shall see that it was the hand
: of God and not of men! (See Ps.
20:7.)
That is one thing for which we
■ might well pray, for “behold, the
[ Lord’s hand is not shortened, that
it cannot save; neither his ear
heavy, that it cannot hear” (Isa.
* 59:1).
> Seeing Israel at prayer, the enemy
* took advantage of them and at
> tacked. In the previous battle at this
’ very spot (see last Sunday’s les
son) Israel had been defeated be
cause they had fought with the
! weapons of man. Now, with God’s
3 weapons of prayer and faith, they
1 had glorious victory.
1 IV. God’s Mercy Remembered
* (7:12).
Samuel raised a stone of remem
: brance, to remind Israel in the
1 years to come that the Lord had
* been their help. A defeated, dis
* heartened, sinful people had turned
* to God in repentance and faith, and
God had given them victory. They
must never forget His mercy.
One of the great concerns of think
r ing men in our day is the fear that
* victory may come to us before we
are spiritually and morally ready
o to receive it. If it does, we shall
r see a mad rush into excesses of all
kinds, a bold glorying in our own
t ability and power, and even greater
forgetfulness of God.
What America needs now is a deep
going spiritual revival which will
both prepare us for a God-given
g victory, and for the peace which is
:- to follow.
