Mayris Chaney, a beautiful dancer, has just
been named head of children's activities in the
Physical Fitness Division of the Office of Ci
vilian Defense at a salary of $4,600 a year.
It is disgustingly apparent that the common
morale even among children has been under
estimated, and when the nation has to pay $4,
600 a year for the services of a dancer it would
appear that favoritism in Washington has reach
ed a climax The employment of Miss Chaney
is hard to stomach, and when one reviews the
activities in the Office of Civilian Defense he
can't help but want to throw up both ljjyi.ds
in utter disgust. The work of the OCD is a re
flection on the common people of this country,
including the little children. We have been un
Surely, Hitler and X?Jo anc' possibly Benito
Mussolini, too, laughed up their sleeves when
they learned that our leaders thought it neces

morale. We challenge such action. We declare
that the morale among the common people, yes,
among the common working man, is far bet
ter than it is in official Washington, in indus
try and in the places of jdgh finance. To em
ploy Miss Chaney and the thousands of other
human leeches is to belittle the common people
of this nation Such action taken when the gov

If Miss Chaney has entered upon her new
work we would suggest that she resign immed

that industrialists could not be expected to ac

The World Day
By BERNARD T. HURLEY
Pastor, Methodist Church
The National Committee of Church
Women, representing the Council of
Women for Home Missions, the Com
mittee on Women's Work Foreign
Missions Conference, and the Nation
al Council pf Church Women, has
prepared a most timely and appro
priate subject this year's World Day
of Prayer. The theme this year is
"I Am The Way." In order to gain
a world viewpoint and the spiritual
experience of other races, the com
mittee chose a group of three women
to write the program who came from
Germany, France and China. One
can imagine what rich and courag
eous backgrounds of suffering and
faith were represented in a group
where the German pastor's wife had
been imprisoned in three concentra
tion camps, her husband in another,
the young French woman had had no
word from her family in France for
over a year; the skilled teacher in a
Biblical seminary discovering with
in.-p, the seven wonderful ways in
which Christ is indeed The Way: The
Way Men Have Lost. The Way Back
to God, The Way of Self-Surrender,
The Wav of Peace, The Way of Love,
The Way of Light, The Way of Pow
With memorable Bible passages,
searching prayers, and the great
beauty of the Everlasting Mercy at
work in the world, we should find
ourselves on this Day of World Pray
er swept into The Way Back to God.
There is no doubt but that we sore
ly need these glorious certainties of
our faith which many Christians in
other countries have learned through
recent testings. These are momentous
days for our own beloved country
The forces in opposition to the Am
erican way of living?freedom to
I worship and serve God, and freedom
of speech, and the rights of individ
uals to live their lives as free men
have attacked us on sea and land
Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth
and the life." We can find our need- I
ed strength in Him through prayer j
and self-surrender. i
The World Day of Prayer will be
held at the Methodist Church Fri
day, February 20th, beginning at
4:00 P. M. Sooner or later we may
find ourselves in dire need of great
er strength than man power can af
ford. Why not recognize the need
of that strength now? "More things
are wrought by prayer than this
world dreams of." Let us turn aside
from the secular to the place of pray
er for a little while and lift our souls
to God in prayer with repentance,
and seek his Way for us in these
dangerous days which have fallen
upon us. It is either Christ or chaos.

for its major thesis the focussing of
Church-minded people on the ap

more than sixty million people un

must be done to change this terri

last Sunday to his congregation, Mr.

Church and the Home Meet," and he
proposes to extend this thought by
speaking at the morning hour on
"Where the Church and the Com
