A Word To Contributors
It is the desire of this newspaper to publish
the contributions of subscribers and correspond
ents, but due to the conditions under which we
find we must operate it is expedient to ask that
articles be curtailed. When stories of consider
able length come to the desk it Is necessary to
edit them to use the shears, in other words. This
takes time that should be used in preparing our
own copy. We may often cut things out that
seem important to the contributor and this is done
mainly because of a shortage of space and an
effort is made to trim without losing the trend of
We are sorry that we cannot give space for
detailed accounts of games, social functions and
the like, but we are more than pleased to have
reports on these affairs and want them to con
tinue coming in. Make them terse give the high
lights without lengthy detail. The average reader
has imagination enuogh to fill in between the
lines, and really prefers to do that very thing.
Until such time as. we can secure, and, we
hope, keep a linotype operator, it will be neces
sary to keep the paper down to a size that a lim.
ited staff can produce. To cover the news in gen
eral, a limititation will have to be placed on con.
tributed items and correspondence.

THE IMMORTAL LAW BOOK
By George Peck
At this time when the entire
world is engaged in a struggle
between Godless Communism
and Capitalistic Christianity
TENTH NATIONAL BIBLE
WEEK, which is to be observed
October 16-22, takes on a special
significance. For the Bible is
the Law Book of fredom-loving
The Holy Bible is tne corner
stone on which America was
built. In the Second Epistle of
Paul the Apostle to the Corinth
ians 3:17 we read: "... where
the Spirit of the Lord is, there is
Liberty." That is the precept on
which the Founding Fathers
fashioned our great Constitution,
under which this nation has scal
ed the heights.
In the Second Epistle of Peter
2:19 is prophesied what has hap
pened to the unfortunate peoples
of the world, who voluntarily or
involuntarily have fallen into the
clutches of the monsters of the
Kremlin: "While they promised
them liberty, they themselves are
the servants of corruption; for of
whom a man is overcome, of the
same is he brought in bondage."
In March, 1940, recognizing the
need of reawakening our citizen
ry to a realization of the fact that
"America was founded on man's
consciousness of God, man's dai
ly labor and the friuts there
from," a small group of laymen
of all faiths founded the Lay
men's National Committee. This
group knew that this land of
freedom could not have come in
to being without a consciousness
of God; that America cannot en
dure if this consciousness be lost.
For the past ten years the Lay
men's National Committee has
sponsored National Bible Week.
It believes that of all the guides
to a better civilization, the oldest
is still the best THE BIBLE the
book that inspires, comforts and
challenges all who have the wis
dom to turn to it. It further be
lieves that if more people make
Bible reading a habit, justice, un
derstanding and peace will pre
vail. The Committee recommends
that you read your Bible daily
and that you go regularly to
the church of your choice. Above
all. it exhorts you to leave no
stone unturned in safeguarding
