CHRISTIAN CHURCH NOTES
“ The Price of a Haircut”
When international relations are
affected by so small a thing as a
it behooves man, and
woman too, to awake to the fact that
life is both complex and serious.
This message which will be pre
sented by I. G. Shaw at the Church
o f Chr^t next Sunday evening, il
lustrates the fact that
human affairs is by no means lim
ited to the laws o f common barter.
There is no questioning the fact
that we may "g et what wc go after,”
but it is also a fact that we "pay”
fo r what we get.
"Up to the Church”
"U p " is a meaningful word, with
a great moral and spiritual signifi
cance. Men appreciate principles,
things, institutions and folks when
the yare "b ig ” enough to compel us
to look "up” to them. Great souls,
great causes, glorified institutions,
these are the magnates that lift man
kind above the animal— and o f these
glorified institutions the church, that
is the institutions o f which the bards
and prophets o f God in all ages have'
dreamed and written, is the greatest.
Not the associations o f pigmies,
not the smirk o f "policy Christians,”
not the group o f folks who think o f
the church as a great "fir e insurance
company" that will take care o f them
in the day o f final test, but the
brotherhood o f man in the fellowship
o f world service, inspiring, leading,
encouraging, and, with moral power
compelling us to think and hence to
live “ right” — this is the mission of
mankind— the reasonable service o f
Christians who in the aggregate con

Why Extremes of Color
Melanin Is the name given to the pig

found when an apple or potato is cut
L half and exposed to the air. It Is
not clear, however, what relation ex
ists between the coloring matter of dlf
ferently hued animals. In studying
white animals some Interesting points
arise. There are two sorts o f white
animals, as In the case o f white rab

Why Animal Glue Is Best
For repairing furniture, and all wood
working, glue Is the appropriate mate
rial. The United States forest service
has made tests to ascertain the rela
tive strength o f the different kinds of
glue used In wood working. From the
housekeeper's standpoint It Is Indicated
that animal glue made from the Vldes
nnd bones Is Just suited to give strong
Joints— the strength o f the glue being
greater than the strongest wood!
For minor repair work, and for bind
ing small articles, a liquid glue made
either from the animal glue, or from
Ash products, may be used.

wood which will he exposed to much
moisture, you should get a specially
prepared water-resisting glue.
