AN EASTER MESSAGE
GOD AND YOU
BY CHARLES STELZLE
Just as God swung in the stars in the heavens when the
world was young so that men might not stumble in the dark, sc
in these latter days He is sending forth illumined souls so that
they may light the way for troubled, tempest-tossed travelers on
the highways of life.
They are God’s prophets and interpreters. A Religion that
is growing needs interpreters. A Religion that is static needs only
scribes. What Religion has to say to the world today, can also
feel the needs of tomorrow. , For Religion that is to satisfy the
needs of men in an expanding world must not only deal with the
problems of today — it must be prophetic of the future.
No where is it promised that in life we shall be free from
all cares and burdens. These are sure to come in the day-by-day
journey along the pilgrim road. But God plainly offers a chal
lenge to men. He wants men who have been made perfect through
suffering. The whole world is crying out for the leadership of
men who are mad of martyr-stuff, but who do not speak of their
martyrdom. It seeks men who are ready to tread the “wine
press of sorrow,’’ but who* will do so with joy in their hearts. It
is because of such that “God goes marching on.”
, Man is incurably religious. His religious spirit is accounted
for by the fact that he finds himself in a world governed by order
ly forces. All about him are signs of unity and purpose, reveal
ing Will and Mind that are infinite. All primitive peoples have
sought an explanation of this mystery, and their finite interpre
tation became the basis of their worship. ' The answer is still
being sought in other fields, but no more satisfactory solution
has been found than that given by Religion—that back of the arm
of Omnipotence is theg reat heart of a loving Father.

Life is made up, not of great sacrifices or duties, but of little things,
in which smiles and kindnesses and small obligations, given habitually,
are what win and preserve the heart and secure comfort.—Sir Humph
rey Davy, English chemist, 1778-1829.
Who is thy neighbor? He whom thou has power to aid or
Whose aching heart or burning brow thy soothing hand
Thy neighbor? 'Tis the fainting poor whose eye with want
Oh, enter thou his humble door, with aid and peace for him.
Thy neighbor? He who drinks the cup when sorrow drowns
With words of high sustaining hope, go thou and comfort
Thy neighbor? ’Tis the weary slave, fettered in mind and
He hath no hope this side the grave; go thou and ransom
Thy neighbor? Pass no mourner by; perhaps thou canst
A breaking heart from misery; go share thy lot with him.
The skull of an infant contains more
bones than the skull of an adult.

PRESERVE THE AMER
“The people who are doing the
aoet to hasten the advent of eoa
nnnism and faadaa are not the
agitators and radicals, but the
short-sighted eaployera who re
fuse to recognise organised labor.
When the eaplojrera of this coun
try frankly and openly reaove all
obstacles to the organisation of
labor, and are willing to ait down
and talk over the probleas of in
dustry with representatives of or
ganised labor, then we shall have
avoided finally and definitely the
aenace of coaaunisa and fasdsa.
And we shall have preserved the
American systea, the systea of de
mocracy in operation. The great
bulwark of denocracy in the United
States is the organised labor aove
aent, and it was never aore ia
portant than it is today."—Rev.
J. W. R. Maguire.
The St. Louis Labor Tribune, editorially carried the following
lead editorial, March 9, which is being reproduced in its entirety,
SOME QUESTIONS FOR LABOR OFFICIALS ON
THE LABOR PRESS
Samuel Goa perm, the George Washington of the Labor Move
aent on numerous occasions proclaimed his faith in the Labor Press
and strongly emphasised the necessity of giving it aural and
financial subscription support. He acknowledged that such a preso
is essential to the very existence of the Labor Movement.
No one in the Moveaent has ever had the teaerity to challenge
this proposition of Saaael Goapers. The preaise being true, namely
that the support of your Labor Press is essential, it follows as the
day follows that you should give such support to your labor paper.
It is the duty of every union member to keep informed upon
autters pertaining to Organised Labor in his community and the
nation. The only way this can be done is to be a subscriber and
learn the facts through habitual reading of you labor weekly. It is
not enough to keep in touch with the activities of you own national
or international union because Labor can only prosper through
active unity and co-operation among all its branches.
There is no excuse whatever for any official of a labor union not
subscribing to a labor newspaper in his community. He should be a
paid subscriber. He should pay for his labor paper jut as he pays
for his daily newspaper, and not expect it gratuitously.
We direct these few pertinent queries to every Labor official in
this way: Are you a paid subscriber to the local Labor Pressr If not,
why aren't you? If you ue a subscriber, why do you not eneouage
your rank and filers to subscribe and like yourself be kept informed
of activities which affect the general and particular interests of
everyone in the Labor Movement? The correct answer to these
queries is the proof of your sincerity and the measure of your in
telligence in the value of a constructive Labor Organ to the Move

Ridicule Lewis At
WASHINGTON. D. C. — The
shrewdest political observers in the
nation’s capital, gathered together at
the annual dinner of the White House
Correspondents’ association to Presi
dent Roosevelt, ridiculed John L.
Lewis’ pretensions to political power.
In a newsreel shown to the diners
the various presidential possibilities
were depicted. One of the biggest
laughs came when Senator ^heeler
of Montana was pictured kissing ba
bies to get votes and then receiving
the “kiss of death” from the leader
of the CIO.

proximately two billion, there are only

the outstanding favorite in Lenten
menus. They are obtainable in every
sise and flavor, from the tiny early June
variety to the giant sise swest wrinkled
variety. But regardless of the variety
you prefer,'they are all alike in their
fresh-picked garden flavor, revealing
so well the great speed with which they
are taken from the vine and canned.
The popularity of carrots and pea3
attests to the delicious way the mild,
universally-liked flavor and attractive
green oolor combine with other vege
tables. Other combinations, not so
well-known, but equally delicious, are
easily prepared by mixing peas with
celery—creamed or buttered; whole
kernel eom, cauliflower, tomatoes,
mushrooms, rutabaga, or parsnips. And
try adding a little chopped onion next
time you serve carrots and peas. The
