THE RIGHTS OF ALL By DOUGLAS MALLOCH THE world of all, and then our kind. Our nation, then our state, And then our town, for so we find The good that makes us great. The rights of all We must recall, And not a single race, Our country love. Yet thinking of Each mortal in each place. But, if the place consider just Itself, the man his own, The land will crumble into dust, For none can stand alone. If for a class And not the mass We legislate and plan, Then gone the things We tore from kings. Then gone the rights of man. Mankind must take a larger view To prosper and progress, For selfishness is nothing new, And nothing much to bless. The rights of all We must recall, Not for a few 7 contrive, The rights secure Os rich and poor. Or neither will survive. © Douglas Malloch. —WNU Service. wneicLias^ r~J “The honeymoon Is over," says newlywed Nan, “wher. your husband starts reading the sports pages again."

BURGESS^f® SAMMY JAY IS MODEST AS SOON as the angry hunter with the terrible gun had dis appeared among the trees of the Green Forest and Lightfoot was sure that he had gone for good, Lightfoot came out from his hiding place among the young hemlock trees on the top of the ridge and walked down to the pond of Paddy the Beaver for a drink. He knew that it was quite safe to do so, for Sammy Jay had fol lowed the hunter, all the time screaming, "Thief! Thief! Thief!” Every one within hearing could tell just where that hunter was by Sam my’s voice. It kept growing fainter and fainter and by that I.ightfoot knew that the hunter was getting farther and farther away. Paddy the Beaver sw 7 am out from his hiding place and climbed out on the bank near Lightfoot. There was a twinkle in his eyes. “That blue coated mischief-maker isn’t such a bad fellow at heart, after all, is he?" said he. Lightfoot lifted his beautiful head and set his ears forward to catch the sound of Sammy’s voice in the distance. “Sammy Jay may be a mischief-maker, as some people say,” said he, "but you can always count on him to provide a true friend in times of danger. He brought me warning of the coming of the hunter the other morning. You saw him save Mr. and Mrs. Quack a little while ago, and then he actually drove that hunter away. I suppose Sammy Jay has saved more lives than anyone I know of. I wish he would come back here and let me thank him." Some time later, Sammy Jay did come back. “Well,” said he, as he smoothed his feathers, "I chased that fellow clear to the edge of the Green Forest, so I guess there will be nothing more to fear from him today. I’m glad to see he hasn’t got you yet, Lightfoot. I’ve been a bit worried about you.” ‘“Sammy,” said Lightfoot, “you are one of the best friends I have. I don’t know how I can ever thank you for what you have done for me." “Don’t try,” replied Sammy rath enne, four cloves of garlic finely chopped and one quart of mild vine gar. Cook the apples, onions, gar lic and sugar, salt and vinegar un til soft, then pass them through a very fine sieve.

The doctor wanted to weigh the baby and asked for the scales. Nobody knew where they were. Suddenly the mother, still “asleep,” spoke up and said, “They are in the kitchen on the nail behind the picture!” For some time afterwards she continued “asleep” and remembered nothing of the incident. All of which gave the doctor an idea with which lie began experi menting. The result was the dis covery that under the drug scopo lamine people must tell the truth. It seems it puts to sleep certain sec tions of the brain, including that “high resistance zone” with which we tell untruths, but leaves wide open the paths leading to the area where memories are stored away. Therefore under its influence people unconsciously tel! the truth —they cannot tell anything else —and sci ence has found a “truth serum.” The most important implications of the discovery are, of course, its possibilities in the detection of criminals. But most women will share our impulse to speculate on how far-reaching would be its use nearer home. Think what it would mean to a THE COOLTDOE EXAMINER er shortly. “I haven’t done any thing but what anybody else would have done. Old Mother Nature gave me a pair of good eyes and a strong voice. I simply make the best use of them I can. Just to see a hunter with a terrible gun makes me mad clear through. I’d rather spoil his hunting than eat.” “You want to watch out, Sammy. One of these days a hunter will lose his temper and shoot yon, just to get even with you," warned Pad dy the Beaver. “Don’t worry about me,” replied Sammy. “I know just how far one of those terrible guns can shoot, and I don’t take any chances. By the way, Lightfoot, the Green For est is full of hunters looking for you. I’ve seen a lot of them, and I know they are looking for you be cause they do not shoot at anybody else even when they have a chance." © T. W. Burgess.—WNU Service.

She would soon know just what it is they like about her—their true opinion of her mother—and any reservations they may have on the rights of husbands. And the social possibilities of the truth* serum are positively enor mous. Imagine being able to use it on your friends. How much time we should save in finding out the real ones. To me this is one of the most promising of modern scientific dis coveries.

GOLDEN TEXT—Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me. Mal achi 3:1. PRIMARY TOPIC —God’s Best Promise Comes True. JUNIOR TOPIC—How God Kept His Best Promise. INTERMEDIATE AND SENIOR TOPIC —Bringing in a Better Day. YOUNG PEOPLE AND ADULT TOPIC —Preparing the Way of the Lord. (The lesson committee has provid ed as an alternative a Christmas lesson, using the text Matthew 2: 1-12). The subject of today’s lesson is broader than the printed text. In order effectively to teach this lesson, the entire Book of Malachi should be surveyed. The prophet pointed out the sins of the corrupt priest hood, mixed marriages, and failure to pay tithes, with the portrayal of the coming judgment and glori ous new day with Christ reigning in his glorious kingdom. I. The Base Ingratitude of Is rael (1:1-5). God approached them with the tender affirmation, “I have loved thee.” It was the burden of the prophet to declare this fact unto them (v. 1). So worldly were the people that they failed to discern God’s good hand upon them. Israel’s attitude toward God is shown in the skeptical question. “Wherein hast thou loved us?” (v. 2). Malachi an swers this question by showing God’s choice of Jacob and his pass ing by of Esau, his destruction of Edom and his saving of Israel. 11. God’s Severe Indictment (1:6- 2:17; 3:7-15). 1. Against the priests (1:6-2:9). They are guilty gs a. Profanity (1 :G). Their pro fanity consisted in despising the name of God. To fail to honor God is to be profane. To use his name in any unreal way is to be thus guilty. b. Sacrilege (1:7, 8). Their sac rilegious act was in offering pol luted bread and blemished sacri fices. c. Green (1:10). They were not willing even to open the doors of God's house without pay. Service to God should be out of a heart of love for him, d. Weariness (1: 12, 13). Because of the absence of love, the routine of priestly duties became irksome. e. Not teaching the law to the people (2:1-0). Those set apart to teach God’s law to the people have a great responsibility and God will most assuredly demand an account ing. 2. Against the people (2:10-17; 3:7-15). a. For ungodly marriages (2:11, 12). God’s purpose in the prohibi tion of mixed marriages was that he might raise up a holy seed (v. 15). Marriage with the heathen would frustrate this purpose. Mar riage of the believer with the un believer today brings confusion into the fold of God and turns aside his purpose. b. Divorce (2:13-1G). Divorce in Israel was the source of great sor row. Even the tears of the wronged women covered the altar (v. 13). The offerings of the man who had thus treated his wife would be an abomination to God. c. Public wrongs (3:5, 6). (1) Sorcery or magical arts. This includes the practice of occult sci ences, such as spiritualism, necro mancy, fortune telling. (2) Adultery. This is a sin of wider extent than the direct parties concerned. It is a canker which gnaws in the very heart of soci ety. Unfaithfulness to the mar riage relation should be regarded as a public sin. Such sinners should be ostracized from society. (3) False swearing. (4) Oppression of the hireling, the widow, and the fatherless. (5) Turning aside the stranger from his rights. d. Withholding tithes from God (3:7-12). Failure to pay tithes is robbery of God. His claim upon Israel was a tenth, plus free-will offerings. Our responsibility Is to give as God prospers us (I Cor. 1G:1). e. Blasphemy (3:13-15). They opeul.v spake against God. saying that it was profitless and vain to serve him. 111. The Awful Judgment Which Shall Befall the Nation (3:1-5; 4: 1-G). 1. By whom executed (v. 1). It is to be done by the Lord. All judg ment hath been committed unto the Son of God (John 5:22. 30; cf. Acts 17:30, 31). 2. The time of (3:2-4:l). It will be at the second coming of Christ. John the Baptist was the forerunner of his first coming. Eli jah will be the forerunner of his second coming. 3. The result (3:3, 4, IG-18; 4:1. 2). For the righteous It will be a day of healing and salvation; for she wicked it will be a day of burn ing and destruction. Culture in Washington The “Spirit of St. Louis” in the National Museum. Prepared by National Geographic Society, Washington, D. C.—WNU Service. MANY forces make Washing ton, the nation’s capital, a cultural center. They flow from the government itself, concerned as it is with broad cultural problems and developing ! within its departments educational resources of great value; from the many scientific, industrial, and other associations located here; from the work of the diplomatic mission, and from five great uni versities. Among the world’s great store houses of knowledge is the Library of Congress. It has more than 4,000.- DOO books and pamphlets, accumu lated from the ends of the earth, including nearly every book printed in America and the most prized of foreign publications. The most j complete collection of Russian and Chinese literature is preserved here. Then there is the Smithsonian institution’s collection of the pro ceedings of learned societies, con stituting the most complete scien tific library in America, and the famous Folger collection of Shake speareana housed in a marble pile near the Library of Congress. Other libraries have become pre eminent in special subjects, such as those of the State department, the patent office, the Army Medical museum, the bureau of standards, , the geological survey, etc. There are in all more than 200 libraries in Washington, where stu dents are always welcome. American education finds a focal point in the Interior department. Its office of education gathers data from all parts of the nation. Through experiment and experi ence, it converts its information into aid and advice given back to state, county and municipal school officers. | Think what it means to students to have access to the researches of the American Council of Education, the National Academy of Sciences, the National Research council, the National Geographic society, the Carnegie Institution of Washington, the Carnegie Institution for the Ad vancement of Peace, and many others. Great Art Galleries, I Os art galleries besides the Na tional, thebe is the Corcoran, ex hibiting the work of prominent American artists and sculptors. It also houses the famous Clark col lection of old masters and other (items of European art. The Freer gallery also illuminates this com bination, with works of .Tames Mc- Neill Whistler and oriental sculp tures, paintings, bronzes and jades. There are also In Washington pri vate galleries opeu to students of the arts. In such an atmosphere it is nat ural that seats of higher learning j should develop. Five universities j now give to Washington the largest proportional student population of | any city in the country. In 1791 Georgetown university opened its doors under the jurisdic tion of the Jesuit order. Second In date of founding is the George ; Washington university (then Co lumbian college), chartered by act of congress In 1821. The Catholic Uni versity of America was authorized by Pope Leo XIII in 1889, and is supported by the Roman Catholic church. . It has a program of ex pansion to culminate in 1939-40, when the university celebrates its fiftieth anniversary. Fifteen build ings of the university already erect ed and 40 religious houses accom modate several thousand students. American university, under the patronage of the Methodist Episco pal church, was chartered in 1593. | Seven of its marble halls are al ready built and in use. Howard university, for the colored race, was chartered by congress in ISG7. Founding of Washington University. George Washington wished a na tional university built here. In his will he left 50 shares of stock in the Potomac (Canal) company for Its endowment “to which the youth of fortune and talent might be sent for the completion of their education . and by forming 'riendships in juvenile years, be enabled to free themselves . . . from those local prejudices and habitual jealousies . . . which when carried to excess are never-failing sources of disquietude to the pub lic min'd and pregnant of mis chievous consequences to this coun try.” Pursuant to that project of the first President, Columbian college was established. The stock which General Washington willed became worthless. But in ISI9 Rev. Lu ther Rice, a Baptist missionary, formed a group to buy land for the use of a college. With General Washington's idea In mind, John Quincy Adams, John C. Calhoun and others became patrons of the new college and raised a fund for its use. By 1822 the main building was in use. Two years later President Monroe, John Quincy Adams, John C. Calhoun, Henry Clay, and Mar quis de Lafayette attended its first commencement. In recent years Herbert Hoover, Calvin Coolidge, General Pershing, Ramsay MacDon ald, prime minister of Great Brit ain ; King Albert of Belgium, and King Prajadhipok of Siam have at tended its commencements and ad dressed the university body. Its medical school was opened In 1825; in 1826 the law school was organized, discontinued soon after ward. but re-established in 1865. It is the oldest law school in Washington and was the first in the United States to establish a grad uate course of law. In 1904 congress removed the school from denominational control and provided it with self-perpetu ating trustees, empowered to change its name. That same year it was re named “The George Washington university.” Its enrollment is more than 7,500. Oldest Is Georgetown. Georgetown university is the cap ital’s oldest seat of higher learn ing. Its founding was coincident with the Constitution and the in auguration of our first President. It saw the Maryland legislature raise “George Town” to the dig nity of a city. Treasured among its archives are records of three vis its to it by George Washington and two by the Marquis de Lafayette. The university’s origin has been traced to the little schoolhouses opened in 1634 at St. Inigoes, Md., by Rev. Andrew White and his com panions, who came with Leonard Calvert in the Lord Baltimore com pany to found Maryland. John Carroll, in 1785. planned the founding of the school where it now stands. Three years later the first building was started, although the deed to land was dated January 23, 1789. Today the familiar tow ers of the venerable university dom inate a pleasant, commanding po sition on the north side of the Potomac, called “Cohonguroton,” or River of Swans, by the Indians. Georgetown’s observatories on the hilltops are world renowned. The astronomical observatory, with such directors as Secchi. De Vico and Hagen, was built in 1543. The Seis mological observatory, for so many years directed by Francis A. Tou dorf. was erected in 1909. After the World war the na tion needed more men trained for diplomatic service and those skilled in overseas trade; so in 1919 George town set up its school of foreign service, the first of its kind in the United States. Recently this school had graduates stationed in 37 for eign countries. Its great new build ings crown the Potomac hills. National Museum’s Treasures. Nobody has seen everything in the National museum. Nobody could. There is too much. To see its 13,- 000,000 different specimens—at the rate of one thing a minute, work ing eight hours a day—would take more than 74 years! This museum preserves all col lections of objects of science, his tory, industry, and art belonging to our government. It is the store house for specimens that range in size from the tiniest of shells and insects to airplanes, automobiles, and huge skeletons of fossil ani mals. Tlie whole has been valued at more than $12,000,000. Because of its host of odd objects that are the only ones of their kind in ex istence, the collection could not be duplicated at any price. The most popular single object today is the “Spirit of St. Louis," the plane flown by Col. Charles A. Lindbergh in his lonely voyage on the first nonstop flight front New York to Paris, on May 20 and 21, 1927. You see also the original Langley flying machine; the first machine purchased from the Wright Brothers by the United States gov ernment in 1908; the “Chicago” (which in 1924 circumnavigated the globe); the first Liberty engine, and many other items in the devel opment of aeronautics.
