Sing me a son that will light the eys,
With the Joy of the long ago;
The orchards' trees and the patch ot
From the scenes that I used to
Sin; me no song ia a classic strain
From an age that I've never known;
But sing me the sweet and the low re
Of Joys I can call my own. ,
The heart of me yearns for the simpler
Which out of my JIfo have flown.
Let mine be the music which sweetly

Sing of the tears wh,ich my eyes have
And the hurts which my heart has
Sing, if you will, of my lovely dead

But let me find in your melody
Some Joy I can call my own.
LET RUSSIA BE A WARNING TO THE NATIONS
. VERSION OF PASTOR

Rev. Gressman Exalts Brain
Work Also; Those Who Build
for God Put Honor in Work.
A a correspondent for the London News Major, W. T. Blake
L has made a trip through a considerable portion of Russia
to observe the famine conditions there. In his story
which was cabled to the New York World, this correspondent
Bays that the most heartrending sights he saw are too terrible
to be depicted. He sums it all pp as a "Gigantic nightmare of
; Here is a section from Major Blake's story, not the worst
part of his narrative but one chosen because it is less repulsive
than much of his report: -
"At Plnsk, one of thn chief towns of White Russia. I found the situation
terrible. Not only are tie people suffering from intense hanger, but they are
without seed, machinery, horses, cattle or homes. The district was the scene
of long fighting betweet Germans and Russians and Poles and Bolsheviks in
torn. On top of all this, the greater part of such of the town as has remained
burned down and 10,001 persons were thus unwittingly added to the crowds
of refugees. .
'The American Reliet Association has arranged for the locaf authorities to
Issue food for 500 people for two mdntha. Even withuhia help the future of
the people of Pinsk is plocarious in the extreme. People in the surrounding
country are dying off like flies: starvation is the chief cause.
"From Pinsk to Vilna and from Pinsk southward to the Dnieper the old
German and Russian tranches are inhabited by starving peasants. I spent
one day seeing for myself the conditions under which these White Russians
are living. A U the, dougo have been, turned into habitations. Wooden sup,
ports are rapidly rotting and families have been buried in the collapse
their temporary shelter. '
, 'In one dugout were a woman, her daughter and her granddaughter. The
daughter was paralyzed and could only crawl siowiy on all fours. The grand
daughter was too young t" be, of much use. These three lived on what grand
mother could beg, which was little enougn, as none of the neighbors was In
much better cond'ilon ttjn herself. The dugout lopka a if it might col
lapse at any moroe..; :n 1 the paralyzed woman knows that In case the earth
should fall In she couid if t possibly get out. When I saw them the old wom
an was preparing their oi ly meal for the day a soup of grass, water, hot
peppers and half a dozen rotten potatoes. No wonder they are no more than
"In the next dugout, a few yards awayiwero two boys. Their father and
mother had died; The boys were contriving to live on milk and a few po
tatoes. Another family lfve on potatoes and small fish which they find in the
mud of what is left of the local river. All these people are in rags.
"In this region skeletons of horses, cows and human beings are common
wayside objects. Men snd animals collapse through weakness and die wlrtre
they fall. Dogs and biids pick the bones clean. Signs of starvation grow
worse the farther one goes east.
"What is going to hnppen this winter? A more tragic question never
Iqfced humanity. , "
""When the snows some how will these poor creatures exist?' I asked a
local offlcJal at Baranovitchi. .
'In tlie winter,' he replied, tliey must freeze to death.' "
Those conditions are worse tuan barbaric and they exist in
the year 1921. Why? The casual citizen will say bolshevism
and let it go at that But that does not tell the whole story.
Bolshevism overwhelmed Russia because Russia had too much
war and too much militarism. In the old days it was a military
autocracy. For that matter, it is a military autocracy now be
cause JLienin's rule rests chiefly upon force. Russia is a war vic
tim and her fate should be an object lesson to the rest of the
world. Give us another big war and other countries will go the
same way. In fact some other European nations had a narrow
escape this time.
Warfare should be put under the ban. It can be done and it
will have to be done if civilization is- to survive. Warfare be
tween nations can be stopped, no matter what reactionaries and
pessimists say. It can be stopped by the same process whereby
it has been slopped between individuals, between families and
tribes. Society must do it in self defense. It is true no peace
plan may work perfectly or be free from objections. But the
big thing can be put over if the nations get together on a basis
consistent with common sense and human nature. Why should
they not dc it? How can anyone think of "Russia without mis
givings for the future if mankind fails to chain the war god?
War and militarism produced bolshevism in Russia just as bad
sanitary conditions produce fever. If we want to make the
world of the future safe we must deal with causes and not with
symptoms. If this is not done there will be other victims in
the future and the nation that now thinks it is the safest of all
may prove the most susceptible. - Until a few years ago people
thought the Russian government very secure , in the saddJe and
they never dreamed that Russian civilization could be under
mined $o easily and so thoroughly.
The battleship Washington was launched Thursday. It cost
many millions of dollars. The money spent in building it would
build the proposed Umatilla Rapids Project on the Columbia
river for the development of electrical power, the irrigation of
thousands of acres of land and the drowning out of a barrier to
upriver navigation. This is one very understandable argument
for an international disarmament agreement. A sttoria "Budget.

Gressman, at the First , Christ lao
church, Sunday morning, on the topic.
"More Like the Master in Laboriivg
and Building for God." Text,. John
t:27: "Work not for the food "which,
perisheth, but for the food which
abideth unto eternal life.")
"Labor Day'' should mean to every
one a day of respect to the honor and
dignity of labor. But when we speak
of the "dignity of labor." some re
ceive it with a sneer, saying there is no
such thing as theidignity of labor, for
all labor is slavery. These same per
sons meet the term, "my country,"
with a slam, declaring that they have
no country. They also utter the words,
"my flag," with a slur. Such persons
need to realize that all labor Is not
physical. Mental labor by one at the
head of an institution which employs
one 6r more workmen, or such as that
of teaching school, is most often labor
f a far more strenuous sort than that
which is preminentlv physical. Mr. K.
B. Fish, of the Seattle Labor Union; Is
a man with the rigm. idea in this mat
ter, and is going about the country,
teaching workmen to realize these twi
phases of labor. He himself works
with his hands, and says, that he.pre-,
rers to work by the sweat or his nanrta
than the sweat of the brain, such as n
done by his employer whom he honors.
We should ever see not merely the
abuses, but also the dignity of labor.
The latter is prominent In the teach
ings of the Scriptures. God is rep
resented as a worker, and man's first
occupation was that of a workman.
The Carpenter of Nazareth should rep
resent to any honest mind the dignity
of labor. Also, physical labor is at its
best only when it is preceded and pef-
meated by mental labor. This is eas
ily seen in the mind- and work of
To become more nice tne juanier in
laboring and building for God requires
us to possess in our hearts the love of
God. Hate tears down; love builds
up. Love for family builds homca;
love for books builds libraries; lo-e for
education builds schools; love for God
builds churches. The most magnifi
cent church building in the world.
