“Who Is This That Forgiveth Sins?”
We have the tight to prayer for
forgiveness. The Son of God says so
It is one of the most amazing of all
our privileges. It seems too good to
he true. Not only may we ask to be
forgiven but we can be sure that our
request will be granted. There is
nothing concerning which certainty
is more important than forgiveness.
Not to know we are forgiven is to
leave us in hell. To ask God again
mid again through
months or years to
forgive us for the
same old sins is to
doubt Him and to
rob us of all the joy
of forgiveness. It
is because we are so
reluctant to forgive
others that we find
it hard to believe
that God forgives us
That there is such
a reality in God’s
universe as full and
f r e e forgiveness
everv man can find
out for himself by
forgiving. Ts man
can forgive there-
fore God can forgive and will. Jesus
was positive and emphatic that every
sinner can secure forgiveness pro
vided he makes himself capable of
Player: O Thou God of compas
sion, help us to believe in Thy pity.
We have been told that though our
sins be as scarlet they shall he as
white as snow and that though they
he red like crimson, they shall be as
wool. Help us to bclievo it. Amen.

with a strong but confflicting mind
There is quickness of thought and
action and great executive powers.
The determination will often bring
results, but they are not always of
the best. You should always work in
a strong light and in dark moments
do not brood over perplexities.

Raleigh, March 12—Workers will
continue to be dropped from CWA
projects at the rate of 5,000 a week
from now until April 1, so that not
more than 23,000 will remain employ
ed on projects after that date, it was
learned today at the office of the
Civil Works Administration. It was
also pointed out that while some CWA
projects will be continued until May
1. that, effective April 1, all work pro
jects, inc’uding CWA projects, will
revert to the control of the work re
lief division of the Emergency Relief
Administration in the State, since the
Civil Works Administration as a sep
arate entity, will officially die at mid
night, March 31. These two agencies
have really been the same, but for
the difference in the names, since the
same personnel has administered both
since the CWA was created. Thus
on April 1. Mrs. Thomas O’Berry, who
has been both Civil Works and Emer
gency Relief Administrator in North
Carolina, will ievert to her original
status of Emergency Relief Admin

tion will be much larger hereafter

before, it was pointed out. since it
plans to organize and continue enough
work projects in the State to take
care of -ill the really needy unemploy
ed who are entirely dependent. But
no jobs will be given to any who have
any other means of support or to any
in which any member of his or her
family is employed, thus keeping it
entirely on a relief basis. The wage
scale will be not les than 30 cents an
hour for unskilled and up to 75 cents
an hour for skilled labor.
The enlarged and re-vamped Emer
gency Relief Administration will also
be divided into two divisions. (1) The
division of rural rehabilitation, and
(2> the division of work relief. This
plan of organization for the division
of rural rehabilitation is now being
worked out in a regional conference
of State relief directors in Atlanta to
day and tomorrow.
at a Glance
By CHARLES F. STEWART
Central Press Staff Writer
Washington, March i-.—A very lit
tle (as yet very little, but it may
glow) tentative agitation in favor of
a unicameral congress is developing
out of a senatorial dissatisfaction with
small-group control of the House of
Senatr Goorge W. Norris’ fight for
a unicameral legislature in his home
state of Nebraska perhaps has had
something to do toward encoutaging
the movement on a national scale—
if there is enough of it to be called
Anyway, it is Senator Norris, ex

husker Commonwealth adopt the uni
cameral plan, it will prove so satis
factory that other states speedily will
follow suit. The Nebraska solon does
not say he thinks that the tendency,
then, would be for the voters to in
sist on a similar legislative consoli
dation in Washington. It would be a
natural thing to expect, however—as
suming, of course, that state-wide ex
periments with the system had turned
out as well as Senator Norris prop
The present congressional set-up, to
be sure, by no means is what the
Founding Fathers provided.
Their scheme was to make the house
of representatives a popular body, by
having its members popularly elected
for short, two-year terms, as they
still arc, but to make the senate serve
as a brake on rapidfire legislation, by
having its personnel long, six-year
terms, and having it chosen by the
barious state legislatures, as actually
was done until 1913, when ratification
of the Seventeenth constitutional
amendment gave the popular form to
senatorial elections also.
Since then the average senator has
been more responsive to public op
inion than the average representative,
for the reason that a senator is pretty
conspicuous among only 96 senators,
and must watch his step oorrespond
igly, whereas one representative a
mong 435 representatives is more or
less lost in the crowd, and doesn’t
have to account for himself so strictly

On Reducing Size
Great Smoky Park
Washington, March 12. (AP)-At
the insistence of Republicans, the
House Public Lands Committee today
delayed action on the Weaver 'bill to
reduce the minimum area of the
Great Smoky National Park, and to
allow land to be bought with $ 1,500,-
000 allocated by executive order to Oe
added to the park.
A majority of the committee indicat
ed it would vote to report favorably
the bill, but two Republican members
asked that a vote be delayed until to
morrow. Both criticized that section
of the bill dealing with expenditure
of funds under a presidential ordei.
