urged a unification of our land and
sea forces under a single direction.
This group has included aviation
in its calculations since that's be
come an important factor in large
scale strife. Of course the presi
dent, as commander-in-chief, al
ready is supreme over all three
arms, but advocates of a merger
of them have wanted them consoli
dated into a triple combination,
with one and the same cabinet head
responsible for the whole thing.
Army and navy professionals
have opposed such an arrangement,
.on the ground that their respec
tive units operate better indepen
dently of one another.
Aviation enthusiasts have been
clamoring for a distinct setup, too.
Hitherto flying hasn't had a status
of its own; the army has had its
aviatorial adjunct and the navy
likewise has had one. That's the
correct system, our land and sea
authorities have insisted. Not that
they underestimate the 'plane's
value to either of their team of
services, but only as an "adjunct"
in each case, not as a separate
Object to Coattails
The aviators, on their side, have
argued that land armies and sur
face battleships are practically ob
solete today. They haven't actu
ally proposed the total abandon
ment of such old-fashioned war
fare mechanisms, but aviation
could very well do without either
of them, they say, and, why keep
it tied onto such out-of-date coat
tails? Well, the latest presidential or

navy, nor did it combine them.

HIGHLIGHTS ON THE SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON
By NEWMAN CAMPBELL
(The International Uniform
Lesson on the above topic for
March 29 Is Matt 17:1-20. Mark
9:2-29; Luke 9:28-43. the Golden
Text being Luke 9:43. "And they
were all astonished at the majesty
JESUS TOOK His three favor
ite apostles, Peter, John and
James, and went up Into a moun
tain to commune with God His
Father. The mountain Is thought
to be ML Hermon, which Is 10,-
000 feet high and whose name
means "lofty mountain." It is
within six days' reach of Caesarea
Phillppi, where they were in. last
The disciples were weary and
rested, but If they slept they were
awakened and saw the transfigu
ration of the Master. "His face did
shine as the sun, and His raiment
was white as light." St. Matthew
tells us. With Him. talking with
Him, were Moses and Elijah.
When the prophets vanished
and they were alone with Jesus.
Peter made a foolish remark; he
said: "Lord, it Is good for us to
be here: If Thou wilt, let us make
here three tabernacles; one for
Thee, and one for Moses, and one
for Ellas." Tabernacles were lit
tle booths or huts made of
branches. While Peter was speak
ing a bright cloud shadowed them,
and a voice out of the cloud said,
"This is My beloved Son, In Whom
1 am well pleased; hear ye Him."
At that the disciples were
frightened and fell on their faces,
but Jesus touched them and said,
"Arise, and be not afraid."
Before Jesus was suffering and
. death. It must have strengthened
Him In his hard way to have this
glimpse that His Father was with
Him and that glory awaited Him.
Asked to Tell No One
As the four were going down
the mountain. Jesus told them to
tell no one of what they had seen
and heard, fearing, evidently, that
it would be disturbing to people
who had neither faith nor vision
of what was to come. They were
to say nothing until the Son of
Man had risen again from the
dead, when it would be possible
for common people to understand.
A multitude came to meet them
as they descended the mountain,
and among them a father, who
fell on his knees before Jesus and
pleaded with Him to save his son
who was possessed of an evil spirit
which often threw him into fire or
water, and did everything to de
stroy him. The child was his only
son, said the man. and he had
asked the disciples to cure him
but they could not Disappointed
in His followers Jesus exclaimed.
"O faithless and perverse genera
tion, how long shall I be with
you T how long shall I suffer you ?
bring him hither to Me."
As the child came toward the
Lord he was taken with another
spasm and fell upon the earth, but
Jesus rebuked the demon who
came out of him, and he was cured
and given back to his father
The disciples were amazed and
asked the Master, "Why could not
we cast him out t"
"Because of your unbelief; for
verily I say unto you, if ye have
faith as a grain of mustard seed,
ye shall say unto this mountain,
Remove hence to yonder place,
and it shall remove, and nothing
shall be Impossible unto you."
"O, faithless and perverse gen
eration," la Jesus' cry. Are we any
better today? Do we have faith
that the righteousness of Jesus
will prevail T We are confused,
downcast, and sometimes hope
less at the wickedness of the pres
ent time. We even lose faith In our
power to do anything about It
We should take these words of our
Savior to ourselves, every one of
us. What right have we to despair
when He told us mountains could
be removed If we had faith? No
real masses of earth, maybe, but
the mountains of evil that crush
We must be strong in our faith
in Jesus and His goodness; and
not only that, but we must
through Him, have faith in our
selves, that we will be given the
strength to carry on and to re
move the terror and fear that lies
over the world, and help to make
it a better one. fit for Jesus and
His Father, God, to rule over for
ever and ever.
