thing that stands out is that the
great films were artistic wholes,
the conception of one man, who
developed an idea into a story,
wrote the music, chose the cast,
directer them and, of course, was
a superb comedian.
The genesis of this unique and
appealing character that won
worldwide affection probably lies
in Chaplin's childhood. The son
of two English vaudeville artists,
he saw little of his father but
was deeply attached to the gay
and courageous mother wtio

Because of the precarious fain- '
ilv situation, Charlie's profession- i
al career began early as one r< I
the "Eight Lancashire Lads," clog
dpncers in the music halls. Other
engagements followed, though
not too steadily at first. When he
was twenty-one, he came to
America with a music-hall com
pany, One night young Mack
Sennett was in the audience and
remarked, "If I ever become a
big shot, there's a guy I'll sign
up." A little later when he form
ed the Keystone Company, he
did. It worked out well for both
men. There was a casual spon
taneity about the way Keystone
comedies were developed that
gave Chaplin freedom to impro
vise And it was here that the

There followed a rapid rise to
fame and fortune. Brother Syd
ney came over from England to
be Charlie Chaplin's business
manager. The celebrities of Hol
lywood were his friends. When
he returned to England after ten
years away, there were cheering
crowds to greet him, leading fig
ures of the social, literary and
political world were eager to
meet him. Chaplin makes no se
cret of enjoying this and there is
a good deal of naive pleasure in
finding these grand neople so
nice and informal, but under
neath there is still an identifica
tion with the poor boy from Lam
beth and with all those who
struggle with poverty. You also
see Chaplin doing a lot of hard
work on each successive picture
and insisting that it must be
right, whatever the cost in time
Vaguely one remembers that
Chaplin's days in America end
ed in some kind of fuss or scan
dal. He faces candidly both the
accusations of the red baiters that
he was "a fellow traveller" and
the paternity suit brought by
that dubious character, Joan Bar
ry. I found his statements both
dignified and convincing. While
"affairs" with several women are
mentioned in the course of the
narrative, and two unsuccessful
marriages, he does not dwell on
sex, disagreeing with Freud as to
iti being "the most important
element in the complexity of be
havior" For the last twenty
years he has been happily mar
ried to Oona O'Neill; they have
eight children and live in
This seems to me an honest
book and as gently unassuming
as the tramp himself. Chaplin
ends with no bitterness, no ex
hortations, no "design for living."
We hope the appearance of this
long-awaited book will bring out
a revival of his great films.

What Is God Doing?
Lc.son for September 27, 1964
liackground Scripture: I Samuel 1 - : He
brews U : 22-32 . 39-40.
I>oot tonal Heading: i'.-alm 47 ; 1 - 1 0.
IN THE midst of personal agon
ies, or swept into a vast public
calamity like a drought or a
flood or a war, the cry goes up
from bewildered souls confused
by pain, What is God doing? He
ought to be here, he ought to take
a nana; wnere is
he in this hour of
need? This is not
a new question:
it has no doubt
been asked ever
since men began
seriously to be
lieve in God. One
swer is found, in
many places and
eras, in the Old testament. l'ropn
cts when asked this question or
any question like it, would not
answer by talking theology or
philosophy; they pointed to his
tory. The God of the Prophets
was no do-nothing God.
Gad in evants
God, the God of the Bible, is
not so remote that you have to
track through eternity to find him.
God is here, God is now. In
ways which no prophet claimed
to explain but which every proph
et believed, God is in events.
What a non-religious person
might see only as an event which
is historical and nothing more,
the prophets see as an act of
God. Samuel, judge and prophet,
in a farewell address pointed out
some of the events which were
divine acts affecting the story and
the fate of the Hebrew people.
One great event was freedom.
"I am the Lord thy God who
brought you out of . . . the house
of bondage." Who set the Israel
ites free? A series of regrettable
circumstances, no doubt the Egyp
tians said. The Egyptians were
so far from believing the escape
of their slaves was a doing of
God, that they tried more than
once to re-enslave them. Who set
them free? Moses, you may say.
Certainly there would have been
no freedom without him. Who
was it? "God," said Moses; "God,"
said all the prophets. The wind
that made the exodus possible: the
survival in the terrible wilder
ness; the whole of the many
sided, many-chaptered Event, was
God's story, for it was the doing
Homeland ?nd king
Another great event, or series
of events making one great one,
was the settling of the Israelites
in a homeland of their own. This
sounds simple, like "the winning
of the west" or "the second world
war." Actually it was a long proc
ess, with ups and downs, suc
cesses and failures, not just an
orderly process but disorderly,
crude in many ways, a tale of
"blood, sweat and tears." Yet Sam
uel (typical of other prophets)
gives credit to God. Then just re
cently ? that is, shorty be/ore
Samuel's farewell ? these Hebrew
people, aware that more fighting
would be necessary before they
could feel secure in their still un
stable homeland, had elected a
king. Samuel, however, says that
God set this king up for them.
This is remarkable; for Samuel
disliked the whole business of
having a king at all. It shows he
had the rare ability to see the
doing of God in events he him
self did not welcome.
IF .. .
As of the time of Samuel's ad
dress, it looked as if God was
not only in history, but in history
very much on one side, the side
of the Hebrews. But Samuel holds
up a red light, a warning sign.
Don't think that because God has
been for you, in the past, he will
always be for you whatever hap
pens, whatever you may do. It is
possible that God may turn
against you ? you and your king.
Notice that Samuel does not say
God will turn against Israel, or
that he will not. The prophet sets
up one word, a might word: IF.
If you (the people, the nation)
will fear, and serve, and hearken,
and not rebel, and follow . . .
then it will be well, but if not,
the hand of the Lord will be
against you. In short, God U in
history, he is a God of action. But
what the action of God will be, he
leaves to the choice of his people.
