To La it no longer than green nlght

Are our quick bursts of wisdom
wherefore bend
Our wits to sparkle for a friend

Though they be silken' paths we tread
And we wax tall as mountains in
our pride.
A brief space longer and we shall be
When that shade pounces that walks
ctose beside;
Its presence greeta us on each side
we turn;
Its arms infold us—there is no es
New percepts we nh*ll ter-new
truths learn
And yet be throttled by that slink

Forever and forever not to see
The blue night breaking into crim

Then all life 3 smallness and Immen
Shall be as one—they say—shall be

Forget Past, Then Work
For Future, Babson Savs
Quickest Way To Bring Bac k Reasonable Prosperity Is
To Tend Job on Hand; Changing Attitude of Pub.
lie Is Favorable Sign of Improvement
Copyright 1932, Publishers Finan
cial Bureau.
Babson Paik, Mass., June 25.
Business is governed far more by the
attitudes, feelings, and actions of the
people than by all the statistics of
production, prices, interest rates, car
loadings, etc. that have been or ever
will be collected. As a statistician I
say that if it were possible to secure
statistics on the mental and spiritual
changes in peope's minds and char
acters, I would discard all the other
business and financial statistics and
rely entirely on such mental and spiri
tual figures. Present business statis
tics are merely the measures by which
we guage the results of the attitudes
and actions of people. It is the changes
in people's attitudes and characters
that furnish the underlying causes
both of depression and prosperity.
From my thirty years of study of
business conditions and the business
history of the past two centuries, 1
deary see that in ever ymajor de
pression people's attitudes and actions
go through three distinct phases. At
the first crack in stock prices, com
modities. and sales, people are sur
prised and grieved but not sufficient
ly changed to make any real sacri
fices or readjustments in their meth
ods of living or doing business. In
the second phase, when, instead of
the expected recovery, business wets
worse, people becom panicky, dump
their investments, and start hoarding.
Paralyzed by fear they are unable to
forget the old and unwilling to re
adjust to the new conditions. In this
second period everybody talks about
the terrible times and nobody does
anything personally about them. In
the third phase, when millions are out
of work, prices have reached rock
bottom, and talk is freely about
total collapse, the attitude is changed.
People cease to worry so much about
their losses because most of them
have nothing more to lose. They be
gin to think about ne wways of pro
gress unde rthe new conditions.
Changing Attitude a Favorable Sign.
It is because we have come in 1932
to the third phase that I am more
optimistl cabout the future than I
have been at any time since 1927.
Business has not improv'd, prices are
still down. However, the decline both
in hi siness and prices is sowing up.
People are face to face with realities.
Stocks and bonds no longer cause
undue worry since mojt of them have
already declined to prices where they
cannot go much lower. Most impor
tant of *ll, nearly everybody has dis-

carded the old notions acquired in
1928 and 1929 that the world owes
them a living and that all that is
needed is a quick wit and some luck to
make easy money. Instead people have
gotten back to a common-sense view
point of living and working. In the
first phase of the depression e-. eiy
body tried to postpone cutting down
expenses to the last moment and were
finally forced to do so by wage cuts
or loss of jobs.
Now that they have made the in
evitable sacrifices and learned that
they can survive even under the
greatest hardships they are ceasing
to worry about it. Since this depres
sion has got to the point where it
is 90 per cent psychological anyway,
this changing attitude toward cheer
ful determination instead of fear and
complaints will prove one of the most
potent factors for business recovery.
Business men have finally learned
their lesson. Many of them are get
ting on speaking acquaintance with
hard work for the first time since the
early days when they started in busi
ness. They are happier for it, even
though their profits are small or there
aren't any profits as yet. They see
here and there a company which is
making progress. By /studying the
methods of these companies we find
they have cleaned out old inventories,
have bought new and up-to-date
goods, have met the price and quality
demands of the public, and are doing
business along the 1932 modal instead
of trying to do it along the 1929 model.
Not the Worst Depression.
I have no patience with those ultra
pessimists who loudly proclaim that
this is the worst depression ever
known and that world must neces
sarily suffer utter collapse.. Lee me
quotP the words of the famous his
torian, James Truslow Adams, who
recently said: “In the panic that last
ed from 1837 to 1841, 50 per cent of
the property in the United States
changed hands. In 1857 times were
nearly as bad, and from 1873 to 1879
the depression was far worse than it
is now. In 1893 I saw troops outside
our house here in New York, and
cavalry charging a hungry mob. Many
of the large railroads were thrown
into the hands of receivers. There
have been exclient time asinc."
Yea, there have been excellent times
since and there will be xcllnt times
again. In the meantime quit worry
ing about what may happen In Ger
many, or South America, or China,
or Australia, or whether there will
be rfailroad receiverships or what not,
and realize that the quickest way to
bring back reasonable and normal
prosperity is to tend to the job at
hand. If you have no job, remember
that there is a vast difference between
unemployment and idleness. There are
ways to profitably employ your time.
The relief agencies will point them
out to you if you do not recognize
them yourself. In the meantime the
cheerful fact is that the majority of
the people have accepted the new con
ditions and are striving earnestly to
work out new means of living and
working under them.
Business as estimated by the Bab
sonchart is now 26 per cent below a
year ago.
Rev. J. W. Davit Preaching
To Large Crowds At
Baptist Church There
Rev. J. W. Davis had the privilege
of speaking to another large congre
gation last night at the South Hen
derson Baptist church. The song ser
vice begins each evening at 7:45
Last night Rev. Mr. Davis took his
sermon from two texts. Matthew
12:20, "A bruised reed shall he not
break and smoking flax shall he not
qupnch, till he send forth judgment
unto victory," and in Isaiah 42:3. "A
bruised reed shall he not break, and
the smoking flax shall he not quench:
he shall bring forth judgment unto
truth." Jesus was wounded for our
transgressions. He was bruised for
our iniquities, and His people are heal
ed by His stripes.
The minister pointed out ingra'ltude
as being our outstanding sin. He
mentioned that people were ingrati
tude to God for His lova. goodness
and many blessings that He bestows
upon them. The roxt great sin tnat
he discussed vjs the sin of nm.iudg
ment. He quoted the passage, Oudge
not. that ye be not judged. For with
what judgment ye judge, ye shall Up
judged: and with what measure ye
mete, it shall be measured to you
again." Men have not the power of
judging each other. Once when Jesus
was talking to Simon Peter, He ask
ed him did he love the Peter
said yes. Jesus asked him thiice, and
Peter said, "Lord, thou knowest all
things, thou knowest that 1 love you. ’
Simon Peter laid his heart before the
Lord. Jesus is the Lamb of God that
taketh away the sins of the world.
In Matthew 12:20, we find two pic
tures. The first picture is that of a
siender. brittle red. He compares His
people to a reed. But Jesus said, "a
bruised reed shall I not break.” The
.pebple of this world are weak, and
they acknowledge their weakness. We
are *e4k when it comes to the know
ledge of thlfe world. We are weak
when it comes to a knowlege of each
other. We know so little about each
other, and are too hasty to judge.
When it comes to a knowledge of God
and His ways, we are also weak.
The next picture is taken from the
passage, "and smoking flax shall he
not quench.” If we have just a little
spark of love for Jesus He will fan
it until it becomes a flame. The Lord
will bless and appreciate every little
deed that we do for Him, if it Is done
through a spirit of love for Him. Jesus
will not break a bruised reed, because
He Himself has been bruised and He
knows wha tain will do. He came and
received the scars of sin in His body
for us. His blood was shed on Calvary
because of love for His people. No one
should ever turn his back on Jesus.
Come and worship at the South
Henderson Baptist church tonight. The
subject will be. "Is There a Hell."—
