The Laws of a People.
Lesson for January 20: Exodus
Memory Selection: Psalms 119:
The preamble of the Ten Com
mandments reveals the Divine Au
thority in them. Uw can have no
rightful authority apart from the
will of God.
The first four commandments
deal with duties to God, Idolatry
does not belong alone to those who
bow "down to wood and stone.”
Anything usurping the place of God
is idolatry. God must have su
preme place. His name must be
revered and his Sabbath kept.
The remaining commandments
complemented the first four. A man
not dutiful to God cannot be duti
ful toward his fellows. But serving
God, he will serve men. Can you
think of one loving God and dis
honoring his parents, murdering,
committing adultery, stealing, bear
ing false witness, and covetous?
God’s law is not arbitrary. It is
based in the needs of men. Law it
Is, but it is also a statement of the
things which will be for the good
of men. The law is not primarily
addressed to aggregations of men,
but to individuals. Each command
ment begins with "Thou Shalt” or
Its equivalent. The law is personal;
also responsibility. But satisfac
tion In keeping the law is also per
The tenth commandment goes be
yond deeds to their source and
foreshadows the teachings of Jesus
about purity of heart. It directly
concerns desire —"Thou shalt not
covet." It operates only in the
heart —in the affections, desires
and motives. May all of us be able
to keep this commandment and all
the commandments in love through
faith in Jesus.
members of congress admit that
they have been "put on the spot,”
both by the President and by their
constituents back home.
Returning from their prolonged
Christmas vacation, during which
the President made a speech urg
ing the public to put pressure on
its representatives to do something
about needed legislation ,the con
gressmen say that the pressure
really was put on and they are
now in a mood to try to bring about
quick action on emergency domes
tic problems.
The President used an un
precedented procedure when he
went to the people for support
before delivering a ‘‘state of
the nation” report to congress
itself. Ordinarily the President
talks to congress first and then
explains his program to the
people. But feeling that he was
not getting proper support from
congress, Mr. Truman took ad
vantage of the fact that con
gressmen were at home to stir
up what he called ‘‘the great
est pressure group in the
world”—public opinion.
Some congressmen were highly
annoyed by this Presidential ma
neuver. They point out that the
problems outlined by the President
are not nearly as simple as he
made them out to be—that he has
proposed legislation which will not
solve those problems and that
legislation which is going to be
the foundation for our economy for
years to come should not he rushed
through without plenty of study
and adequate hearing.
But although the President’s
speech did not add to his popularity
in congress, the members of that
Above tAe jatf
You've heard one of those mas
ter minds of Political Economy
make the statement that it is im
material how much a nation owes
If all its creditors are its own citi
zens! Next time you hear him ad
vance this bit of financial wisdom
Just ask him if he is one of those
creditors, and if he answers in the
affirmative ask him how he would
feel jf his nation became bank
rupt and couldn't pay its debt to
A nation of course doesn't have
to become bankrupt in exactly the
way an individual or a corporation
does —because it can issue paper
money as long as the pulp supply
holds out and pay off the face value
of all Its bonds and other obliga
tions —unless they be In foreign
currencies. But paper money is also
an obligation and if any nation has
to Issue it in vast quantities be
cause it can't meet its debts in any
other way—then it is to all Intents
and purposes bankrupt, and Its
paper money loses its bhying value
according to the extent of that
bankruptcy. Worthless paper
money to pay off worthless govern
ment bonds.
This country Is today richer than
all the rest of the world. It can
meet its present obligations under
almost any conceivable circum
stances. But if our policy is to con
tinue on, ad infinitum, to add to our
already vast debt .even school chil
dren will realize that the day of
reckoning must come, and the peo
ple will lose confidence in their
government, and there will develop
a “run on the bank".
The president is soon to present

body realize that he uul put the
spotlight ou uiem and that the
public is looking lor action as it
has never looked before. Commit
tees which have been holding up
important legislation have definite
ly been stimulated or “frightened"
into completing their reports. As
a result, we can expect a good
many bills of paramount impor
tance to be brought to the floor of
the house and senate during the
next few weeks.
But among the less political
ly-minded congressmen there
appears to be a growing fear
that inadequate legislation will
result. One representative used
the President’s labor proposals
as an example. He said that
events during the past few
weeks have proved, beyond
much doubt, that Mr. Truman's
request for a law creating fed
eral fact-finding committees
and requiring that no strike be
called while those committees
are making their investiga
tions, would not be a satisfac
tory answer to the labor-man
agement situation. He pointed
out that the recent labor-man
agement conference was able
to get nowhere in finding a
good answer to the problem
and should not be assumed that
congress can get the right ans
wer overnight.
It Is expected that the Presi
dent’s demand for a continuation of
price control for all of 1946 will
swing the vote in favor of extend
ing the price control act, which
now expires at the end of June. It
is also believed here that his re
newed pressure for a higher mini
mum wage will result in early leg-
his budget for the next fiscal year
and from it the American people
will learn whether the party in
power intends to put a stop to some
of the financial nonsense which has
characterized it for 13 years, or
whether we must vote that party
out of Washington before it’s pecu
liar economic conceptions wash
our magnificent financial founda
tion from under our feet. We are
as solid today as the Rock of Gi
braltar but enough atomic bombs
could even wipe that out.

islation along that line. But it is
considered doubtful that congress
will follow his bidding in attempt
ing to rush through the full em
ployment bill or the much-debated
medical insurance program.
The conjfress considers itself
thoroughly chastised for having
delayed action on many matters of
vital importance. It realizes that
the President has shifted the
blame for lack of action to its
shoulders. And we can expect, dur
ing the coming months, that con
gress will buckle down to work.
But that doesn’t mean that It will
accept the Presidents’ legislative
recommendations any more read
ily than it has during the past
