That is what we would expect to hap- pen in the case of the decisioT of the U. S. Supreme Court con- cerning the recital of prayers in schools. Why the Supreme Court of the United States agreed to hear this case is beyond our under- standing. The case was one oi protest against the fact that the Board of Regents of New York state had recommended a non- denominational, 22-word prayei which might be said in public schools. But the fact that the Suprem£ Court did decide to hear the case, and did rule that it was against the Constitutional guarantee el religious freedom to permit pray- ers of any kind in public schools, could bring up innumerable ad. ditional questions for the court to answer. If it is against the Constitu tion to say a prayer in schools or in any state assembly in or- der to enforce separation of church and state, is it legal to have "In God We Trust" on treasury coins, can Congress and the Supreme Court still be open. ed with prayer, should we con tinue to permit courts to "swear in" witness on bibles, should we throw out our national anthem, and had we better invalidate the Dec!oration of Independ e n e e which speaks of "a firm relianc Ot the protection of Divine Pro videnco" ? Endless questions arise whey the courts most recent decisior, is considered. Fortunately, however, as we were brought up to understarS things, the majority " of the pea ple in this country are still the arbiters of such matters rathei than the high court. So we as sume that a decision which is entirely unrespected by the pea pie will be impossible to enforce and we can just forget it until the day, which we hope will hey er be, when government storm troopers break into the schooh and drag a pupil off to jail for reciti,g such anti-American lines as: "Almighty God, we ac- knowledge our dependence upon Thee, and we beg Thy blessings For Sale: Alfalfa - Sweet Clover AI! kinds of Forage Seed All Brookings Tested FARM SUPPLIES Fencing, Posts, Butler Bins, All at reasonable prices Farmers Elev.

This was the prayer that caus- ed all the controversy. Meanwhile, we suggest that in. creased public attention be given to the actions of our highest court--a court which seems to de- light in ruling in favor of com- munists and a court which, one day, approves the distribution o  obscene books and then bans the recital of a simple prayer. Redemption Through Suffering By Rev. D. E. Hostetter In Luke 24:46 we read, "And thus it behooved Christ to suffer." Forgiveness of sins, if it merely r, zeans remission of penalty, might be achieved without sacri- fice. But if forgiveness of sins means really delivering another from his sin, that never can be accomplished without pain. When tte nation has given itself over t, believe a lie -- to write liberty on its banners and slavery on haman lives -- death of that na- tion is inevitable if there are not found men and women who are willing to pour out their lives that they may preserve it from death and redeem it from sin. When the church is threatened with apostasy, endangered, cor- rupted and degraded, there is no hope for it through painless preaching. It lives only as willing men pour their lives out into the church for the church. We n(,ed to let mankind know that sin ts wrong and that be,.must seek fo"- givene. The blood of the mar- t>rs is the seed of the church. "No redemption is possible with- oat suffering." The superintendent of t h e Inebriate Asylum at Binghamtoo, N. Y., bore testimony to this truth v, hen he said: "Some men are sent here under compulsion al- most driven by their friend._ and no such man is ever cured N(, man has ,ever gone from this :sylum cured of his inebriacy un- less there was someone -- a wife, :, mother, a maiden, a sister-- ,yo prayed for him, hoped for lfim and wept for him at home." The great redemptive power in life is the power of a suffering heart. No church can be lifted up into a higher plane of holiness xcept by  prophet who feel. in his soul the pain, shame and humiliation of all that s false nd evil in the church. No child was ever saved by an unsuffer- :,n mother: no nation by unsuf- fering patriots; no church by unsuffering saints: and we say it reverently -- the world could .Jt be saved by an unsuffering God. He might take off the pen- ,lty; He might let us off; but He cannot pour His own life into w, so as to make us in .truth the sons of God, unless He pours Himself into us through a wound- cd, riven and broken heart. The crucifixion was not an ac- cidem, an incident, an occasion. It was not something artificial, wrought by God for an artificial end. It was, in the very nature of the case, that the human race could not be saved by a Redeem- er who did not go down into the race, share its experiences, know its life, feel pressed by the burdeu of its degradation.

The ..... . .. IT TAKES PERFECT BALANCE RESOURCES LABOR RE: BUSINESS The National City Bank of New York, which knows pretty well what good business is, has this to say: "Business depends, in the end, upon the enterprise and ambitions of people; upon their willingness to work in order to raise their standard of living; upon saving and investment; upon research and technological progress; upon good management of public and private affairs; up- on cooperation and understanding to maintain fair and equitable terms for the exchange of goods and services; and finally upon peace, order, stability." That forthright statement reminds us that "business" isn't a small isolated group of owners or managers. Under our way of life, it takes just about everybody in the act to keep the wheels moving. Nobody can "put" the needs of business first or last. But when you talk business, you're talking about the economy. And, the needs of the economy---simply anoth- er way of saying the needs of millions of working Ameri- cans--are first, by natural law, logic and necessity. Letters To The Editor: Editor of the News: 1 want so very much to thank everyone who has sent cards, letters, gifts, and flowers since I've been hospitalized. I want too, to thank you for all the nice th"ngs so many of you have beer. doing for my family. I intend o get much stronger, but never will h've the strength to write that number of individual thank you notes,-much as I'd like to do it. Your notes assuring me that you were praying for me have been such a comfort, •and have thoroughly convinced me of the power of prayer. Twice in the past two weeks, I walked through "The Valley of the Shadow of Death" and each time I awoke l: the middle of the night know- ing instantly that I was better. My first thought was that almost everyone in Woonsocket must have been praying for me. If a group of people, each praying to God in their o separate and individual ways, can accomplish such a thing, why should anyone worry aboat the future?

But often the most effective revolutions in- volve none of these. In 1933 a rvolution took place here in the United States and it has proceed. cd from then until now without interruption• This 1933 revolution produced an entirely new set of American governmental urinal- ples. Basic pre - suppositions that were universally accepted in 2930 have been thrown into the political ash can. Ideas that ware then politically abhorrent have ow been embraced by both major political parties. Here are just a few of them: compulsory Federal old-age insurance; fore- ign give - away programs; Fed- eral regulation of labor, prices. w:ges, farm and industrial pro- auction: laws made by interna- tienal agreements rather than by Congress and the state legisla- tures; Federal contempt for con- stifutionally established states' rights and responsibilities. These are among the revolu. tionary political principles fabri. cted and congealed during the white heat of continuing crisis and emergency. These princi- ples are now frozen hard into our political system because b o t h major political parties have of- ti,:ially adopted them. But in 1932, neither political party men- ti(med such principles in their ha- tic,hal political platforms. T h e only such platform that included these ideas was the Socialist plat- form. Obviously. any princioles pro dated in panic are obviously un- re!table. Nobody can think calm- ly and constructively ]n the mid. die of. a cyclone or while he i fi,hting a forest fire. The watch- word of all such emergencies i' net deliberation, but action. If you are driving along a quiet Nghway at night, doing better thn sixty, and suddenly a stray cc;w looms up directly in front of you, there is no time for reaso,- ing: You must act. What .ou do is to react, immediately and stbconseiously to lon training ,d experience with brake and steering wel. Since 1933, the American ship (-state has been frantically and ccntiruously careening past first o,e threatening obstacle a f t e r another. Critical emergency has been continuous. But during the whole time crucial decisions have been made that have changed the whole course of history. Both the phraseoloey and the physiol- ey of liberty have taken a te, rible beating. Liberty and its @00000000@ E By Dean Manion c unterpart, freedom, hae been systematically divided, dis. jointed and dismembered. The series of crises brought forth the great Atlantic Charter declaration that freedom is cata- logued numerically; that there is not simply one freedom, but four, namely, freedom from fear, freedom from want, freedom to worship and fredom of speech. What we need now is not enum- eration of various freedoms and diverse liberties, but a simplified unification of liberty that our Yorefathers envisioned and tha we successfully used for over t hundred and fifty years. Liberty was no mystery to our American forefathers. They knew that in a self - governing country, liberty must be universally un- derstood or it is certain to be hopelessly destroyed. They set out the definition in the Declara- tion of Independence so that it is clear and understandable, the broad basis of man's relationship tc God: to government and to his fellow-man. In 1912 Woodrow Wilson said: "The history of lib- erty is the history of the limita- tion of governmental power." He added that a concentration of governmental power is what al- ways precedes the death of hu- man liberty. Thus, when government gets more powerful, human liberty shrinks; and when governmental power bet.omes absolute, human liberty disappears. Man is free ohly when and where he succeeds in limiting and controlling tim power of his government. A clear definition of liberty then is this: strict, enforceable limitation up- on government. All men every- where have the same God-given riohts, but for thousands of years men were without effective means cf enforcing these rights. By virtue of our ConstRutional !imitations upon governmental power, the United States made t:istory when the provision for the enforcement of the God - given lights was included in our funda- mental law.
