The times recently have been like
sailing a ship in a typhoon, with the
mast torn away, the rudfter crippled,
the crew working frantically at the
pumps to counteract leaks that have
sprung in the hold. The crew has been
weary, confused, no one has seemed to
know where to turn, what to do next.
This explains the wide spread un
certainty, the epidemic of, "Shall I do
this, os shall I lose if I do?"
But the storm Is dying down. Land
is in sight. The ship will soon go to
port for repairs, a general overhauling
a new coat of paint, new masts, new
rldder, and then out to sea for an
other trip, all hands singing.
It is a beautiful picture. Also an
inevitable development. No storm can
last forever. With this one over un
certainty will vanish and confidence
will he restored.
And the change is taking place right
