that the grave was not deep enough

Summer thunderstorm as a "tem

The American Council of Learned
Societies is beginning to collect
these local names of common things.
They are all good English, and
many of them are survivals of old
English words no longer used In
England. With the freer mingling
of people from different regions
many of these distinctions of speech
are disappearing, and it is well to
have them preserved before some
of the words and phrases vanish
entirely from the language.

Names . . saving common
The same thing has different
names In different parts of the Uni
ted States. Thus, what Is always a
"pail" in New England is a "buck
et" in the South. The Georgia boy
might throw a "rock" at a squirrel,
but up North a piece of rock small
enough for that purpose wluld be
called merely a "stone." In some
parts of the country "gumbo" means
soup with okra In It; in other re
gions It refers to a sticky kind of
red clay. What Virginia calls "sal
sify" New York calls "oyster plant."
New Englanders refer to a sudden
The largest ship ever built, the
new French liner, Normandie, was
launched the other day at St. Na
zaire. For thirty years shipping
men had been talking about the
thousand foot ship, but the Nor
mandie is the first to reach that
length. She is one thousand and
fifty feet long.
Before the war the Germans and
the English had built several ships
in the nine-hundred-foot class, such
as the Lusitania, Mauretania, Levi
athan, Majestic, and Aquitania.
Since the war the tendency has
been toward smaller ships, until the
Italians surprised the world with
the Rex, the largest ship yet put
into commission since the war.
There are not many harbors in
the world in which a thousand-foot
ship can be safely docked. It is not
likely that we will see much larger
craft afloat in our time. These big
ships are uneconomical, and are
subsidized by governments largely
for advertising purposes. The bulk
of the world's commerce has always
been borne, and probably will al
ways be borne, by smaller craft,
which can go wherever there is car
go to be carried.
Thomas .... the socialist
The enormous vote cast for Nor
man Thomas, the Socialist candi
date for the Presidency, is as much
a tribute to the personal character
of the candidate as it was an ex
pression of disgust with the two old
parties on the part of the voters.
Socialism, as Mr. Thomas repre
sents it, does not consist in waving
the red flag and threatening des
truction to property and property
owners. He is a revolutionist, but
a peaceful revolutionist.
I don't agree with Mr. Thomas,
but I like him, as many other peo
ple do, because of his personal in
tegrity and sincerity. He was a
Presbyterian minister before he
went into politics, and he looks up
on his socialistic program as mere
ly applied Christianity.
Radio ..... 12 years ago
Twelve years ago, on November
2, 1920, the first radio broadcasting
station in the world, KDKA at
Pittsburgh, broadcast its first pro
gram, consisting of election returns
in the Harding-Cox contest. Today
there are some 1,100 broadcasting
stations in the world, more than
half of them in the United States.
Thousands of millions have been
invested in radio receiving sets, of
which there are some fifteen million
in the United States alone. Enor
mous fortunes have been made
from trifling investments in this
still young industry.
I don't know what the next big
fast growing industry is going to
be, but I know for certain that be
fore long something, which has
perhaps already bene started in a
small way, will catch the popular
fancy and make fortunes for its
promoters and early investors as
radio has done.
Character ... in banking
A New York banking friend of
mine surprised me the other day
by saying that he thought the de
pression had been, on the whole, a
good thing for the nation as a
body, what only a few of us saw,
and that only partially, that a great
many men of low character had
got themselves into positions where
they could control other people's
money," he said. "Some of them
were in the banking business, many
of them were in other lines. They
were posing as great business lead
ers and building up confidence
which they did not deserve.
"Some of them have committed
suicide, some have gone to jail,
some have fled to foreign countries,
some have simply disappeared.
"It is a banker's business to judge
men's character. Sound business
cannot be conducted by men of low
moral and ethical standards. It
will be a long time, I believe, before
dishonest but plausible speculators
will again find themselves in a po
sition to pose as men of honor and
swindle the unwary. If I am right
about that, then the net effect of
the depression will have been good
for the United States."

Occasionally some super - man
rises up to tell us that religion is
playing out. But whoever says that,
or believes that, does not know the
deeper heart of mankind. He does
not even know his own deeper
One may be utterly indifferent to
religion, as such; his attitude may
even appear to be hostile; yet if we
dig beneath the outer surface of
that life, we will find that one, like
all others, possesses the religious
instinct. And this instinct is so
deeply rooted in his very being that
he cannot get away from It
Religion is as old as the human
race. And if ever there was any
possibility of its playing out, it
would have done so long ago.
There have been times when the
general interest in religion was at
a low ebb. Just now, however, the
subject of religion seems to be com
manding a greater popular atten
tion than ever before.
It is not so long ago that a great
Londo.i newspaper carried in its
columns for several weeks a. series
of religious articles, and during
that period its circulation increased
many thousands. It is a matter of
general comment that American
newspapers and magazines are de
voting much more space than ever
before to Church news and to dis
cussions relating to religious ques
tions and affairs.
People are thinking and writing
and talking more about religion to
day than ever before, and the fact
of the Interest manifested Is one
of the most significant signs of the
times. It does not look to the care
ful observer as though religion was
In the future, as in the past, the
tide of popular interest In religion
may ebb and flow; but ultimately,
as was prophesied by Habakkuk:
"The earth shall be filled with the
knowledge of the glory of the Lord,
as the waters cover the sea.

Christ always used the future as
a source of inspiration, directing
the attention of His followers to
the glorious inheritance which that
future would reveal. He treated the
future as unknown and yet well
known. We know that tomorrow

to every one. There is nothing so
certain in the progress of human
life as this. If we had riches of

we could not fly from it We are
