Text| • “You can’t alter facts by
filming them over.”
During a debate Abraham
Linc«!i| asked his opponent how-
legs a cow had.
“Four,” was the answer.
“That’s right,” said Lincoln.
“Now suppose we call the cow’s
tail a leg. How many legs
would the cow have?”
“Five, of course.”
“That’s where vou’re wrong,"
said Lincoln. “Simply calling a
cow’s tail a leg doesn’t make
it a leg.”
Have you tried to talk a cow’s
tail into becoming a sis h kg?
It isn’t easy unless you talk to
someone as stupid as you are.
Ignoring a fact doesn’t make it

Ever wonder about some of
those TV commercials? Well, so:
did the government. Result?'
Complaints from the Federal 1
Trade Commission on fals«> ad
vertising against some of the
medium’s most important invest
ors. For instance, have you
ever seen a certain margarine
advertise flavor gems which
give the product a similarity to
butter? Know what the flavor
gems are? A liouid sprinkled
on for demonstration purposes.
Anyway, the FTC savs the pres-;
ence of visible moisture on mar- 1
garrine is undesirable. Then
there's the bit about shaving a
piece of dry sandprrcr. The
sandpaper is actual'v a p ece of
glass or plastic, to which sand
has been applied. Or, vou may
have seen a couple pieces of
ham (not referring ‘o the ac
tors) sitting side by side. One I
is wrapped in the sponsor’s
product, the other in good ole
re'iable Brand X. Big trouble
here is that the poor ole ham
wrapped in Brand X is worse
than the other to begin with.
To make matters worse, poor
ole Brand X was deliberately
torn and wrapped in advance.
There are lots of other goings
on that are making the Federal
Trade Commission unhappy, but
the few I just mentioned will
give you an idea about the state
of advertising in the coun’ry to
day. Me? I alwavs go to the
store and ask for Brand X. It’s
good stuff, reallv.
Next week WCDJ. as so many
other stations around the coun
try are doing, switches its
musical policy. With the big
to-do about oayola, the record
companies are now putting out
a bare minimum of rock ’n roll
and are now concentrating on
quality sounds—big band music,
top jazz, striking novelties, sing
ers that can sing (not just
shout). It seems as if ears
have been rierced long enough
and the public has jus* about
had it. The better rock n roll
singers have switched, or will
switch, to the big sound that
the public has been verv hun
gry for, for so long a time. It’s
comforting to check the new re
leases and not have an earache
after playing about two or three.
Anyway. WCDJ will be the one

It is stupid and frequently fa T
tal to ignore facts, it is equally
poor judgment to cl>ng to opin
ions without checking them con
stantly against new knowledge.
J Many of us err because we
! are too stubborn to change an
j adolescent belief or a half-un
'derstood notion of our vouth.
We remain chained to another
generation’s ignorance, refusing
to admit that it might have,
been wrong. “Facts are stub
born things” wrote Ebenezer El
! lie it in 1747. It is dangerous
jto ignore them. Swift Dats the 1
back of the man who admits he j
j was wrong. Such a man. he i
' states, is saying he is wiser to
i day than l.e was yesterdav. Are
station where you can get the 1
! big sound. You’ll be hearing
j the greats such as Glenn Mill
! er, the Dorseys. Benny Goodwin;
i vocalists such as Mathis, Sinatra,
Bennett: some of the wonder
ful music that emana'es from
! Broadway and Hollywood. For
i western fans, the mid-afternoon
will bring on only the best
country-western artists, such as
: Stonewall Jackson. Johnny Cash.
Johnny Horton. Teeners will
have, later on. a revised version
of Teentime during the late af
i ternoon hours, featuring t|ie
kind of music they like best.
For the evenii*g hours, of
course, cur Sootlight on Music
j holds forth with the relaxed
1 wax. So. remember, it starts
this coming week on WCDJ—
the good sound. Quality music,
big bands, show tunes, iazz. com
. ’ mercial band music (Welk. Lom
! bardo. etc.), semi-classical mu
sic. It'll be exciting listening.
. Some folks will be unhappy
1 with the change, but. name one
I person or organization that’s
I able to make absolutely evory-
I one happy? We do know, from
I I letters, comments and the like
j that the majority < f listeners
want qual tv music and,, well.
| keep listenin' to 12t>0 in 1960.
’ It’ll be exclusive with WCDJ.
Possibly other stations in this
! general vin city will follow suit.
! but it won’t be the first time
| WCDJ has been imitated. We'll
go along with the old saw about
imitation .being the sincerest
, form of flattery. Anyway, h pe
i you enjoy the now musical poli
cy we’ll be inaugurating on ’he
first of February. Incidentally.
, WCDJ is the first smaller sta
, ‘.ion on the cast coast to make
I this switch.

Mary Baker Eddy, whidi in

In today's lesson, we face the |
Question; How can persons be |
won to Christ through Christian ;
The Scriptural passages we
are studying today traces Paul
' and Silas' journey to Thessa
, Sense* and then to Beroea. and
gives a vivid description of tha
different ways in which the
teaching of the disciples was
1 received. In Beroea the' peo
ple wore anxious to levn.- a r ' H
studied the Scriptures daily. In
, Athens the two teachers found
a'tars were erected to many j
gods, and faced a mocking and j
indifferent audience. In short, i
1 the chanter we are studying *o-!
day -points to the place of edu- ]
cation in ’leading people to a
i know-ledge of Christ.

cation. Indeed, that is the ma
jor purpose of all Christian
teaching. Yet certain princi
ples are essential if this goal is
to be achieved.
Vital faith within the home
is helpful as an undergirding t«
the teaching. While some are
led to Christian commitmen
whose homes have no founda
tion of faith, it is always easiei
' for the mind to understand and
accept the gospel when religion
has been a vital part of a grow
j ing experience. The gratifying]
' response to Paul’s teaching in
I Beroea was made possible by
] a foundation of Jewish home
1 life. On the other hand, the
resistance in Athens was prob
ably explained, in part, by pa
gan homes in which allegiance
to God had little or no atten
In the second place, persons
are won to Christ through edu
cation when teaching leads to
a decision. Paul was a maste
teacher. Yet his presentation of
the Christian faith was always
' pointed toward the winning of
i people to faith in Christ. If he
I had been satisfied merely to
i present facts, he might not have
! faced imprisonment and beat
-1 ings as he did. It was h : s eon- j
stant pressure for a decision :
