Radio Signals Now Used
to Guide Ships to Port
U. S. Lighthouse Service Is
New Haven, Conn.? The United
States lighthouse service has con
stituted an important factor in the
economical operation of highly
mechanized shipping whose objec
tive has been the saving of time,
according to R. R. Tinkham, chief
engineer of the service.
Established in 1789, the service
first operated twelve lighthouses
and a few barrel buoys which pre
viously had been maintained by the
colonies as guides to the principal
Atlantic ports. Since then it has
grown to be the largest lighthouse
service in the world. Most recent
of its developments is the estab
lishment of the radio beacon.
"Changes in the character and
distribution of aids to navigation,"
said Tinkham, "have been as pro
nounced as the changes in shipping.
Not a few of the lighthouses that
have effectively served the needs of
sailing vessels and the slower light
draft ships of former years have
ceased to be of use to mode: ship

There was a time when delays to

weather were accepted as of little
moment. Today, however, the sav

They have been synchronized into

self-regulating electric clocks, so

Twenty years ago we went to war
to make the world safe for democ
racy. It was the
aclysm in histo
ry. When peace
was formally de
clared by virtue
of signatures af
fixed to treaties,
especially that of
June 28, 1919, we
thought we had
fought a war that
would end all
wars. That was a
little less than 18
years ago. Since that time serious
social and economic changes have
come. These changes have chal
lenged us to inquire: "What benefit
did we gain from the World war?
What did we accomplish? To what
extent have we succeeded in mak
ing the world safe for democracy?"
Little cut-out flowers flutter over

at our command, which, if properly

attitudes of mind greatly needed is
that which will rid us of superficial
optimism. The moment we hear
news which threatens danger, some
persons cry: "Wolf! Wolf!" Gulli

not when it displaces discriminating
judgment. We need to THINK and

thought and not to shallow emotions.

Men never realize how much ex
ercise a woman gets just in the
course of an average day. Or may
be they do, because they are re
sponsible for most of the step-saver
appliances. We've just been seeing
a lot of those metal cupboard, and
cabinets that fit together in units
and make the most convenient
places to work with wide counter
tops and fine vermin proof storage
cabinets, plate warmer cabinets and
towel drier compartments. Then
there is that very impressive new
garbage disposal affair that now
comes with some of the new sinks.
You just dump your garbage down
the drain and it is mechanically
pulverized and washed away.
But there are a lot of step-savers
you can introduce that won't cost as
much as these, such as having racks
for kitchen towels in reach of work
ing centers and arranging for the
storage of various articles of food
in reach of the place you prepare
them for cooking. And having plen
ty of traps handy to make one trip
take the place of three in carrying
dishes in for setting the table or
in assembling the ingredients for a
recipe, or collecting pots and pans
to wash. Little changes but they'll
save you miles.

Conquering Appetite and Greed.
One of the difficult and at the
same time challenging things about
teaching the Word of God is that its
divine precepts are diametrically
opposed to the current philosophy
of men. In our lesson of last
week we saw that meekness and for
bearance are strong and commend
able qualities in a world which mag
nifies brute force. Today we are
to study a portion of Scripture
which shows the folly of living for
the flesh, and we are living in a
world where the flesh and its appe
tities are given full sway.
Professors in many colleges are
openly advocating the free exercise
of every fleshly appetite as a nor
mal expression of life. Morality is
cast off ; the flesh rules. Many of
the nations of the earth look upon
boys and girls as merely so many
physical units useful in a future
war. Motherhood has been degrad
ed into an animal-like function, sole
ly for the breeding of more man
power. One nation recently advo
cated as great an increase as pos
sible in the birth of illegitimate
children to be cared for by the
state as a measure of national se
curity. One shudders to mention
such unspeakable wickedness, but
even so we have only touched the
Is it true that man is but a beast?
Is there no spirit in man capable
of fellowship with God? Has the
moral law of God been abrogated?
The story of Esau and Jacob is most
pointed and instructive in its an
swer to such questions. Two New
Testament quotations have been
chosen to express the truth of an
Old Testament lesson; namely,
Galatians 5:17, and 6:7.
I. "The Flesh Lusteth Against the
Spirit" (Gen. 25:27-34).
Esau is a type of the man of
the flesh. He was "a cunning hunt
er, a man of the field." Evidently
he was an athletic, outdoor man of
attractive personality, of free and
easy-going spirit. He was a hail
fellow-well-met. Had he lived in our
day he would have been featured in
the rotogravure, would probably
have been in the movies, would pos
sibly have been a great athlete, and
the good-looking boy who set hearts
a-flutter at the country club dance.
He came from the hunt, and he
had found nothing. He was hungry.
What a type this is of the folly of
seeking satisfaction in the world. It
never satisfies. For all its glitter
and glamour, it is empty and shal
low. He had a birthright ? a val
uable possession in any case, but
doubly so as a son of Abraham. But
he was hungry, he would simply
die if he did not eat. His brother
Jacob, inspired by his scheming
mother who was not willing to abide
God's time for the fulfillment of his
promise, had the savory pottage
ready to tempt him and he sold
his birthright for a "gulp of that red
stuff," for so might v. 30 be trans
One is reminded of a clergyman
who attended the Keswick Confer
ence in England. He sent a request
for prayer to the platform and
asked this question: "I have a habit
which is dishonoring to Christ. If
I give it up I will die. What shall
I do?" The wise and complete an
swer was one word ? "Die." Rather
should we lose our body and its de
sires than to lose our soul.
n. "Whatsoever a Man Soweth
That Shall He Also Reap" (Gen.
Jacob and his mother found that
one lie called for another, and ul
timately their deceit led (as deceit
always does) to the place of reck
oning. The law of sowing and reap
ing is inexorable. Jacob fled from
his angry brother. Rebekah thought
it would be for "a few days" (v. 44),
but it proved to be twenty years,
and she never saw her favorite son
Let us make no mistake about it.
Our sins will always find us out.
Even God's people must learn to
walk uprightly before Him if they
are to walk in peace.
