GOLDEN RULE AND WOItLD PEACE By DR. S. PARKES CADMAN President of the Federal Council of Churches In this powerful appeal for the adoption of the Golden Rule as a guiding principle In International relations, the great radio preacher holds up as an example In constructive International charity the work of the Near East Relief, which makes its annual appeal for the support of the American people n Golden Rule Sunday, observed annually In December. ATT T I XT! . V.A tli. J j Americas people of recent years bo Decomes mem .as their attitude towards the un happy and persecuted people who hare been the beneficiaries of the great work of the Near East Re lief. At this season when the annual appeal for the support of this work Is made, through the ohservance of Golden Rule Sunday,- It is an over whelmingly gratifying thing to hear the reports of the triumphs and Ex cesses of this philanthropy. I have been hearing of the horrors of the Near East from the days of my DR. S. PARKES early youth, when Mr. Gladstone con ducted bis memorable campaign In which he denounced the Turk and urged that the Turks should be thrust bag and baggr.ge out of their country. The horrors have continued ever since, but our country has been au instrument In alleviating them by con tributions out of Its abundance to the crucial need of the distressed orphans and what few unhappy relatives they have left to them. We can do no better thing than to (Ire for those who are In need, an-J (bus make such merchandise out of our material welfare as to have cre dentials for the life which Is to come. I do not take the attitude that there Is anything much to praise about the American people In this matter, though I am proud of tlham, as we all are. It would have been a strange thing If wo had not done as we have done. When you think of the millions which are squandered In this country upon feminine devices for beautify ingwhich do not always succeed In milling thqlr object when you think of the vast cost of trying to make mutton look like lamb, when you think of the multitude of surplus things wHh which we surround ourselves In dally life, and then see this work for far-off children, I think you will agree with me that even though our polltl- ryf,' .(SI., ' ''V.

PLAIN LIVING AND By CHARLES General Secretary of THE GOLrEN RULE is a unl versal creed. Everybody ac cepts It. Moat people try to practice It. Golden Rule Sunday Is examination day a day of plain living and high thinking; of self measurement by the Golden Rule to see bow big we really re. Golden Rule Sunday comes midway between the feasts of Thanksgiving and Christmas. On Thanksgiving Day we satlBfy ourselves with good things. We sur vey our broad acres, bulging gran aries, and busy factories. We re appraise our unprecedented and lour ing wealth of more than three hun dred billion dollars, tar transcending anything previously or elsewhere known In all the world. Not least are we thankful for government under which Ufa and property are safe. Truly no people ever hud as great reason tor gratitude as have we In America on Thanksgiving Day, 1925. At Christmas we again Indulge In feasting and mirth, and share some ot our luxuries with relatives anil friends, some ot whom are sore per plexed to know where to store the gifts that we pour Into their well pro vided homes. But on Golden Rule Sunday we ex press our gratitude and practice "Mrs religion undented before God" ft more vital way by considering tb fatherless and widows in their fllctloa" who, as worthy at we, by the vlclnltudi a ot war, are bereft ut everything. They have no lands, no granaries, no bank accounts, no sav ings, do employment, no homes, no food, except as the Golden Kule proves a vital reality In their lives. It It proposed that on Golden Rule cat promises hare not always been realized, at any rate we hare tried to retain the credit of our people by con tributing generously to this work, which we must continue to sustain. As a churchman, I may be permit' ted to point out that the Near East Relief has contributed enormously to the cause of church unity. At Stock holm a few weeks ago I had the privl lege of conferring with all the patri archs and metropolitans and archbish ops of the Greek church. They assur ed me that they have been drawn toward the West not by the common CADMAN consent of intellectual minds nor bj the doctors of the church, but rathei through the work of Near East Relief That work has won the hearts 0: great bishops as well as refugees ant politicians. Truly we have seen tht truth of the saying that a little chili; shall lead them. ' The little Armenlat orphan, Zadi, whom thousands have heard sing and talk at the preliminary Golden Rule dinners in a hundred cities of this country, Is a flve-year-olc representation of thousands ot these Eastern peoples, whom we have ap proached not with theology or dogma but with those deeds of mercy whicl are tlhe very essence of true religion There Is a lesson of world peace it this philanthropic approach to thf hearts of men. We must follow It ui with this decision that we will noi allow the state In the future to dlctatr to the church or to any body ot mr as to what shall be their attitude to ward peace and war. We must tak our patriotism from the preaching 0 the pmphels. Unless we want a tunc like this every fifty years to repair tht recurrent waves of slaughter ant devastation, we must cling to tht spirit of the Golden Rule. The qualltj ot mercy is not strained. It droppetl as the gentle rain from heaven. Ii bleaseth him that glveB and him tha' takes. It becomes the throned mon arch better than his crown. HIGH THINKING V. VICKREY the Near East Relief Sunday, all persons who are disposed to make a practical application of tht Golden Rule, provide for their Sundav dinner approximately the same menu that Is provided, when funds permit, by Near Kast Relief for the tens of thousands of orphaned children In Its care, most of whom are under twelvt years of age. Having partaken of the orphanage meal and entered Into fellowship with the children overseas, we are asked to make such provision for them for the 305 days ot the year at we should like to have made tor ourselves, or for our children, It conditions were reversed.

He had been engaged for that,. Purse strings Tvere loosened. Money poured freely twenty, fifty, a hundred, five hundred. And it was Christmas. They went to Silas Vaughan, the grocer leader, a wealthy man of the town. People looked surreptitiously to ee what munificent sum he would give. At first a hand went Into his pocket like the others, then came out and the arms were folded. There was an audible? gasp from watchful eyes. More pleas came, more solicitors went round, man to man. But Silas sat there, arms folded, rigid, unmoved. 'Times are too hard," he was heard to Efty in unswer to an Importunate beggi.r. "It Is a bad year for such a buIKKte."

Most of the donors of the public building were there, rather proud of themselves and not above circulating bits of criticism. When Silas entered, there was no uncertain air of chilli ness in the room. A few nodded to him. but frigidly. Silas appeared to take no notice, and found a seat near the front, where ap parently' he sat calm and unruffled. A poorly-dressed man down la front had been looking about expectantly, as though waiting for some one to speak. Suddenly he rose. "I ain't no speaker," he called, loudly, "but I got suthln to say. Bout the new bulldin',' I ain't nothln' to say, only seems too much money for real need. An' I never liked horn 'blowln'.

But hands and apologies were appear ing from all sides. He was pushed to the platform and told to make a speech. He would have made a mess of It, but all were cheering so wildly no one could hear. So It did not mat ter. , 1925, Western Kmpuwr PnlonJ The Christmas Spirit; It Can Never Be Cheap C HE worked In what was considered a second-rate store In a big city. To her, though, the store was a beauti ful one. And when It was decorated at Christmas time with its tinsel and gay Christmas touches, she thought It the most beautiful place on earth. She loved the Jewelry that was sold there. Sometimes she would hold a bit of cardboard from which hung a cheap earring to her ear and would think that when she got her pay tht following week she might buy a pair. They were certainly becoming and would be more so when off the card board. How crowded the store became around Christmas time. The people would look and admire and buy. She would be so busy. It was splendid to be busy, and even to be tired with tht Chtlstmas rush. There was something so stimulating about the Christmas rush. There were several floor walkers In the store an extra one was added for the Christmas season. True, their presence was not so magnificent as the floor walkers In the great, expen sive stores,- but they were grand to her. And she loved to say, with a 6oautiful manner: "Just a moment, madame; I will call the floor walker." And then, this Christmas, greater happiness than ever came to her. A most wonderful floor walker came as an "extra," but they said he would be taken on for good he was such a capable man. And sue took him on for good. For hadn't tliey fallen In love with each ither at once? Oh, to some the store might seem cheap, the people In It might seem funny Imitations of the people who belonged to the very expensive stores. But there was glorious Christmas hap piness In that store. For it radiated the Christmas spirit. And the Christ mas spirit can never be cheap 1 Mary Graham Bonner. (. 1516. Weitern Nwippr Union.) Expensive Presents Do Not Give Most Pleasure MR. AND MRS. GORSE were In vited to spend Christmas with Mr. Gorse's wealthy sister on her farm. "But we can't ; we can't," Insisted Mrs. Gorse. "Our rent has been raised this year, and living Is so dear In town wt cannot afford presents that even her children will enjoy." "It's us they want, and not our gifts," rejoined Mr. Gorse. "You leavt the presents to me." On Christmas Day the Gorses drove up to the big white country house In their flivver. Such a welcome as thef received. Not an Idle nor an embarrass ing moment even for Mrs. Gorse who discarded so reluctantly the weight of city poverty. Laughter, music, fun prevailed. And after dinner, when the grown-ups peeked Into the nursery to see what the children were doing, Mr. Gorse had his triumph. The children had discarded their expensive toys, and snt In a circle on the floor playing Industriously with some ten-cent mag nets he had brought. "You know our children's likes bet ter than we do," said the charming hostess, as she lead the Gorses back to the living room. "And nothing I re ceived pleases me so much as the hooka you brought me, unless It Is to hHve ynu here on Christmas day." Even Mrs. Gorse knew that her words rang true. H. Lucius Cook. If. 1 JS.

It was all due to the plan that Mrs. Hammond had worked out when the children were small. Several weeks before Christmas a contribution box was placed In the Hammond dining" room; across It was written in big letters of red and green : "Do your bit to make Christmas merry," and each member of the .family was supposed to contribute something, be It ever so little. And It was surprising, Just at soon as the box was put up each year, how many wonderful ways cropped out for earntag extra nickels and dimes. Even little Tim, In spite of being only five, contributed his mite to the cheer fund. And the fun the family had In trying to fill the box why, It was nearly as good ts Christ mas Itself I Each evening It was held up and weighed by the smaller chil dren and they always agreed that It was getting to "awfnl" heavy; when It was opened Just before Christmas there was always a shout of surprise and Joy, and they declared that It con tained much more than they had thought It would. And now they wert spending the money that was made up of so much sacrifice, such planning and scheming as there was to get tht most out of It.
