I am not here today to tell some new

have heard or should have heard before.

know it best seem hungering and thirst

ing to tell it because more wonderful it
seem* than all the golden fancies of all
our golden dreams. I ain going to tell j
it because I believe with the author of
that grand old hymn. “And when in
scenes of glory. I sing the new. new
song, ,’twil be the old, old story that I
have loved so long.” lam going to .
tell it just a simply as I can—that mes
sage of salvation from God's own Holy
Before telling the old, old story today,
let me say that we have a more sure
word of prophecy than the words of the
hymnist when she said “And when in
scenes of glory I sing the new, pew song.,
’twill be the old, old story that I have
loved so long we have the word of Saint
John, who leaned against the Master’s
head at the last supper and heard the
throbbing of His great heart as it beat
for a world. „ This Johfl, banjo lied to
tile lonely isle of Patmos and separated
from the work that he loved by the rolling
waves of a restless sea, being in the spirit
on the Lord’s-tday. caught the vision of
a better world and heard the music from
its distant shore. The song that he
heard was. "The song of Moses and of
the Lamb." The first part of the song
told of God's redemption through Moses
—a redemption whiefy.js .still celebrated
in the Jewish pa.ssover. I for one;
thank God that the Jews still celebrate
that feast. What a stay and support
it is of our faith in the historicity of the
Old Testament! The last part of the
song told of God's redemption through
the sacrifice of His own son—a redemp
tion which is still celebrated in the Lord’s
Supper. I, for one. thank God that
Christians stiU celebs,t*, that sacrament.
What a stay and .support it is of our
faith in the historicity of the New Testa
ment! Do you think men would have
observed for thousand* of years the Pass
over and the Lord’s Supper if the Pass
over and the Ilord’s Supper symbolize
nothing but ancient myths and ties?
Certainly; pot! Toa can not logically
deny the marvellous redemption of God
until you can explain away—absolutely
away—the Passover and the Lord’s Sup

Now, what is- the message of salva

ten as I quote ft fa ..brief: “What must
Idoto be saved? Believe on the Lord
Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved.”
That’s the message of salvation from
God’s own Holy Word; and that’s my
text for today.
Some of you may wonder why I have
selected that text, knowing that several
members of my congregation today may
be Jews. I have four reasons for do
ing so. and three of those reasons are
from Hebrews. My first reason is this:
A celebrated Jewish rabbi, may of whose
sermons I havje wad, penned these words :
“If professing’ Christians had only been
true and liv#d Christianity, the world
would have been, converted to Christian
ity long ago if’ Professing Christ and
then living ifi Wilful and deliberate op
position to Hjm is no Christianity. Don’t
begin to sayj! Why, even Paul was not
perfect! Pgui was not perfect; but he
wanted to be, and tried to b«. "Not as
though I were already perfect, but I fol

Washington. June I.—The "trade asso

Chicago, June 1 (By the Associated

the death of Deo Reynolds Parsons, a
wealthy broker and club man. in his
apartment in a fashionable - North Side
neighborhood Sunday morning.
Firemen found Parsons partly clothed
in the burned drawing room of his home.
In the apartment at the time were Mrs.
1 “arsons and James King, a policeman
who said he had accompanied the broker
j home several hours previously.
Mrs. Parsons, an amateur singer, and
known to her friends as a motorist and
horsewoman, suffered slight burns on the
face and hands while King was severely
burned and also injured when he fell
from a second story window.
Many persons about to attend services

o'clock Sunday morning.

EXPECT ADVERSE REPORT 1
ON LEASE OF SHOAr
Believed Special Committee Against t\_
Lease of Power Developed at Plant.
(By the A.MMlairt Crra.l
Washington, June I.—An adverse re
port on the proposed leasing of power at
Muscle Shoals, Ala., is expected to be
recommended to the war department by
the Mnscie Shoals commission.
This is the sentiment of members of
the commission now in Washington, who
also have been in touch with other mem
bers. The war department some time
ago asked the advice of the commission
with regard to the proposed leasing of
power. The commission’s answer will
be 'drawn up at a meeting called by
Chairman McKenzie for June 10th. to be
held here. This will be the first meeting
of the commission since it was organized.
Investigation of the Muscle Shoals
property has led to the conclusion that
the new power expected to be available
by July Ist as a result of the work on
the Wilson dam will not be ready until
December Ist. By that time the com
mission is expected to have drawn up
its report on the disposition of this prop- 1
This report will be submitted to Con
gress which convenes again in December.
President Ooolidge holds the view that
J no power should be leased if it will inter
, sere in any way with the final disposition
of the property. On such a ground it is
understood the commisison would recom
mend against leasing of the power. The
War Department, however, is not bound
to follow the recommendation.

But occasionally he finds time to play,
and play to him means to tumble and toss

His right name is Clyde E. Pangboru,
and he is the star pilot and one of the

Tribune has contracted to bring to Con

flying and aerial dare-leviltry Tuesday
and Wednesday; afternoons.

newspapers each day will be fljre tickets,
each of them worth an airplane ride
without any cost. Other persons who
desire to fly will be taken for aerial
“sight-seeing” tours at nominal charges
before and after the exhibitions.
Pangborn was an experienced pilot
when America entered the war, and he
soon was selected as an instructor. But
be wouldn’t confine himself to the safe
and steady courses of the air. He was
what is called a “born stunt pilot.” He
wanted to send his plane through twists
and twirls, through loops a spirals.
One day. he attempted to roll the wheels
of his 'sip' over the roof of his command
ing officer's quarters.
He was “grounded,” 'the penalty for
disobeying orders, which at that time
prohibited stunt flying.
But lie was up again, only to be
“grounded” ngain. Time and again this
ers were sent to France, but Pangborn,
spending about half of his time on the
“ground", only could regret his foolish iin-.
pulses. Thus he gained the name of
“Peek's Bad Boy.”
But during this time he learned how
to fly 'an airplane upside down. To ac
complish the feat meant that both he and
• the airplane would become covered with
hot oil, that the motor would probably be
.stalled, and that he'd take a chance on

Henderson, mineral geographer of the

out that even a mountain cannot engage
ing “galloping" without pausing to "catch
Its breath.” He believes that the “mov
ing mountain" on the highway between
Meeker and Rifle, .Colo,, may be resting
for another slide into the Rio Blanco val
A number of large cracks have appear
ed across .the base of the mountain, and
this, according to Henderson, indicates
that the base of the peak is weakening.
If (his base, a stratum of sandstone,
gives way, the mountain is expected to
silp farther into the valley.
Geologists attribute the movement of
the mountain partly to “a physical ampu
tation" of its base, made for the con
struction of the highway. This slicing
iof the peak's tie apparently upset its
