On The Lighter Side...
The absentee problem in Berlin has become
very acute. Evei-y day a few more factories
fail to show up for work in the morning.
The difference between a model woman and
a woman model is that the former is a bare
possibility and the other is a bare fact.

as a barn,” said Sammy as he stood before the
“Sammy, why do you exaggerate so ter
ribly?” asked his mother. “I’ve told you forty
thousand times about that habit of yours, and
it doesn’t seem to do a bit of good.”

We’ve just heard about the Navy recruit on
guard duty at the Main Gate of an important
station. He had strict orders to admit no car
unless it bore a special tag. He stopped them
all, including one loaded with a high-ranking
officer. The guard heard the brass hat order
his driver to go through, calmly said:
“I’m sorry, sir, but I’m new at this. Who do
I shoot—you or the driver?”
Feminine Voice (to bus driver): “Genn,
cantcher wait until I git all my clothes on?”
(And fifty sailors twisted their necks around
while the laundress got onto the bus with her
basket of clothes.)

The gorgeous Varga-type nurse leaned over
and gently straightened the blankets. She
murmured softly, “Now you mustn’t let any
thing excite you.”
Somebody was telling us about the 1944 of
fice boy who got the afternoon off because his
grandmother was playing right field.

LAYING ASIDE EVERY WEIGHT
“Wherefore seeing we also are compassed
about with so great cloud of witnesses, let us
lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth
so easily beset tis, and let us run with patience
the race that is set before us.”—Heb. 12:1.
Here our author illustrates the Christian
life by the Greek and Roman games, in which
foot races were run in the presence of thou
sands of spectators assembled in the great
The Christian life is similar: There are the
runners, those who profess Christ. There is
the course to be run, the straight and narrow
way of a right life. There is the goal to be
reached, Christlikeness and the kingdom home.
There is the assembled multitude looking on,
for heaven and earth are interested. At the
end of the course are the judges, and Jesus is
there, too. He is the author of our faith, and
he will strengthen us and encourage us in the
race. We must fix our eyes on him, looking
straight ahead and doing our best. It is a long
race but we can win.
If we would win we must remove every
hindrance possible. The athlete takes off his
hat, his shoes, and every rag of clothes he can.
There must be no weights, and certainly he
must take off that robe that would cling, and
bind and hinder. Even so the Christian must
remove every hindrance or weight and the sin
that clings and holds us back from doing our
It is evident that the writer here is making
a distinction between hindrances and sins as
between shoes that iare heavy and a robe that
would bind. Some things are hindrances to
the Christian life that may not be positive
sins; and there are some things so very wrong
that they make running the Christian race not
only difficult but impossible. We must get rid
of all of these hindrances and sins or give up
hope of winning in the race of life.
