dispute results in increases in|

This column believes that that

“ if what labor receives, with the,

that management has to pay,
exti-emely high salaries to at-|

crate the business. There is a
I limit, however, to the high sal

for these so-called high price
In addition to the high salar

generous expense accounts: aw- •

j takes a great deal for granted
and expects a generous allow
ance without definite responsi
bility to the family. There was
i a time when youngsters were
definitely part of the family
life and assumed some of the
i duties of the household. In the
i time of coal furnaces the son
was supposed to stoke the fur
nace and take out the ashes as
well as the garbage. He also
performed other duties around
the house and he felt that he
was a part of the family as a
result. Today, youth, in gen
eral, and there are exceptions,
feels that they should not have
any responsibility and do noth
ing to earn their allowances.
My advice to you would be to
establish a program where your
son would assume regular du
ties and would not receive any
allowance unless these duties
were performed. With all of thei
wealth of the Rockefellers they
had definite responsibilities and
a very small allowance. In fact
one or two helped wait on ta
bles while in college.

“After a long time the Lord
(Greek: KURIOS) of thpse serv
ants cometh and reckoneth with
them.” (Matthew 25:19).
The Greek word KURIOS,
translated Lord in the New Tes
tament is the word used of a
slave owner and signifies owner- i
ship of another, body, soul, spir
it and possessions.
Too often we forget that Jesus
demands yieldedness of posses
sions as well as of intellect and
outward living, and to many 1
this is the most difficult sur
render of the Christian life.
The rich young ruler stood well
the test of yielding his 1- intellect
I unc^,his outwaijcl life to Christ,
but was unwilling to give up his
possessions and trust Christ also
; tor the material things of life.
Someone has said that per
sonal religion should be “purse
and-all” religion. One-third of
ithe parables of Jesus deal with
'a man and his possessions.
Whether we approve of churches
and ministers who talk always
lof money, we must admit that

Found In Chickens
Contagious cancer has been
found in chickens, cancer caused
by a virus.
The findings of USDA scien
tists at a U. S. Regional Poultry
Laboratory in Michigan strength
en the belief that viruses cause
some kkjds of animal and hu
“RousVysarcoma” is the name
of the* cfcncer. It had been
thought'nOn-contagious until Dr.
B. R. Burrnester of USDA’s Ag
ricultural * Research Service
proved it could be transmitted
by direct contact between birds.
The fact th«t one virus is
contagious suggests that others
may prove so. And Dr. Bru
mester’s r experiments indicate
that the , contagiousness of the
disease may depend largely on
the virulence of the virus and
the health condition of the bird
that catches it.
In one test, 35 or 45 healthy
birds raised in direct contact
with virus-innoculated birds died
of Rous sarcoma.
But when healthy birds were
put in indirect contact with
innoculated birls (separated by
wife-mesh screen), none of the
untreated chickens died.

the virus can enter a bird's
