Evangelist Cites Of
Offenders Throughout
the ; Ages
’ Throughout, recorded history, the
way of the transgressor has been
hard, and never has sin paid in tihe
long run for any man or woman who
has walked therein, declared the
evangelist, Riev. H. C. Gavlness, in
the union revival meeting last night
at the Big Henderson Warehouse.
Numerous outstanding wicked per
sons whose experiences are related
iu the Bible, some, in secular history
and others even In iruore modern
•times were named by the evangelist
x'- bearing- ouit his declarations. It
was rated as a strong sermon.
Those who have been attending the
revival this week have felt that the
music by Misses Smith and Logue

and piano has been worth attending
tne revivla .even if ther ewere no
other features about it. They always
play inspirational hymns, and last
right they sang one num|he<r in. addi
tion to the instrumental' work.
Severa lwent forward to the inquiry
room following the sermion, in addi
tion to those who held up tlheir
hands for prayer.
The evangelist preaching last night
at the B|g Henderson Warehouse,
said in part;
‘ God never wrote truer texts in His
Book than these, ‘The way of trans
gressors is hard.’ Prov. 13:15. and,
‘The wages of sin is death.’ Rom.

Jesus Asserts His Kingship
On numerous occasions Jesus discouraged efforts
of, the crowds to acclaim him their king. But the
last week of his life he deliberately planned such
a demonstration, sending two of his disciples to
a nearby village for a donkey’s colt.for him to

moments to destroy it. Why? This

is but a counterfiet of the devil to
hide from one’s vision the transcen
dent beauties of the New Jerusalem.
“Ask Esau if the wages of sin is
death? ‘When Esau heard the words
of his father, he cried with a great
and exceeding bitter cry.’ Gen. 27:-
34. His cry of bitterness is the answer
when one asks if it pays to sell spiri-'

The most terrible picture of hell is
that of a place where naught but re

us by Christ Himself.

streets turn away from the skull,

and executed such iniquities.
“Ask Belshazzar the last night he

what his Impressions were of what
he saw in the temple we may infer
from a proper understanding of hia

with Its fruitlessness It was a sym
bol of the spiritual barrenness of
the nation, prolific in outw'ard show
but barren of faith and therefore
ready for judgment.
This judgment he began to visit
upon them on his return to the tem
ple that very morning as he “entered
into the temple, and began to cast
out them that sold and them that
bought in the temple, and overthrew’
the tables of the money-changers,
and the seats of them that sold
doves—and said unto them. Is it not
written. My house shall be called a
house of prayer for all nations? but
ye have made it a den of robbers.
And the chief priests and scribes
heard it, and sought how they might
destroy him.” This attitude proved
the nation’s spiritual bairrenness.
Like the fig tree, it w’as ready for
judgment, ,
“When he came to It, he found
nothing but leaves.” His Judgment
upon the nation, as upon the barren
fig tree. was. “No man eat fruit of
thee hereafter forever.” The religion
of the temple had become commer
cialized under a mercenary leader
ship. The “house of prayer for all
nations” had become "a den of
Its missionary interest in other na- .■ ,

place qljotted to other was
sq cluttered up with dove cotes and

ple was a barren tree. Therefore the

iness improvement is already strong
ly underway ,as shown by the sus
tained advances in car fadings, steel
activity, automobile production, elec
tricity output, retail trade, and other
basic barometers. Now that the nec
essary deflation is virtually over and
done with, the fundamental law of
action and reaction is working for
recovery regardless of what emer
gency measures may or may not ac
tually be taken. President Roosevelt
is holding in reserve the various radi
cal currency provisions and will ap
ply them only if necessary. The ad
ministration realizes that the only in
flation that will be of permanent help
to business is the inflation of employ
ment. Hence, I believe the trump card
in the President’s hand is his pro- i
gram for industrial planning, which |
would help business to operate at a
profit and would put men back to
work at their regular trades.
Trend Toward Industrial Planning.
People should understand that we
are now living in a new world. The
next riinety days are destined to write
epoch-making pages in United States
history. The proposed national in
dustrial recovery act, setting up a
government board with broad powers
to regulate and stimulate industry,
is a control plan similar to the War
Industries Board of 1918. However,
this new proposal is more flexible and
gives industry and labor large powers
for self-regulation subject to govern
ment approval. It behooves indus
trial and labor leaders to cooperate in
this program. The* question is not
whether industry is going to be re
gulated. The question is whether the
Government will have to regulate it by
arbitrary force, or whether employers
and labor leaders are sufficiently en
lightened to cooperate with each othre
and with the government to regulate
The basic purpose of this new pro
gram, is to encourage business expan
sion and increase employment all
along the line. Recognizing that the
quickest way to do that is to make
it possible for business to be done at
a profit, it is proposed to eliminate
cut-throat competition by liberalizing
the Anti-Trust laws, legalizing trade
practice agreements, and possibly even
fixing minimum prices for standard
products. The trade associations will
be utilized to represent different in
dustries, and, together with labor and
the government Board, agree on a
program of increased activity and j
employment. It even become j

program instead of a destructive one
such as the arbitrary Thirty-Hour
Week Bill would have been.
Controlled Production More Impor
tant Than Controlled Inflation.
Much of our trouble has come from
unbalanced production. Industrial
planning calls for establishing a closer
relation between supply and demand,
recognizing at the same time th e pre
sent level of output and of purchas
ing power is far below normal, and
that an increase, controlled and re
gulated by industry itself, is the goal
to aim at. All efforts should be di
rected toward increasing purchasing
power and raising the standard of liv
ing. In accomplishing that purpose
the authority for controlled inflation
is far less important than the pro-

in your own industries are but an in
