For Accurate Reports Employer's Are Responsible Mr. N. A. Avera, Manager of the Wilmington Field Office of the So cial Security Administration point ed out that every employer is re sponsible for reporting the correct names and Social Security number of his employees under the Federal Insurance Contributions Act.

As a result not only were the em- State College Answers Timely Farm Questions Q. Some kind of insect is mak ing holes in my lawn and piling up little mounds of dirt. How can I stop this? A. The holes are caused by large white grubs. Immediate kill can be obtained by using either a 5 DDT dust at the rate of 4016 per acre or a 5 chlordan dust used at the same rate. Q. What growing conditions are best for camellias and azaleas .' A. Grow in semi-shade protect ed, from too milch winter winds; and always place plants on well drained locations.

But the prophets showed, once and for all, that Goo Has literally no use for religion which has been dissected - off from life. Religion which is kept apart from life turns sour and bad. In Isaiah's time, everybody Vnan tfiera was something, wrong Dr. Foreman with the country. i Isaiah's diagnosis was shocking: Religion is our principal trouble. God is tired of it. What? The pious people would exclaim. Look at the crowds in the Temple every holy dayl Listen to all the prayers, count the number of tithers. If anything is wrong with our country, it can't be religion! But religion it was. Why God Was Tired A CATHOLIC priest would shock everybody should he call Vat ican City "Hell's Half Acre." Isaiah shocked his fellow citizens iby calling Jerusalem "Sodom anp Gomorrah." Those cities were the worst places the Hebrews had ever heard ot They , were, so bad,, the Lord had to destroy 'Iken by fire not 19 good people conld be found there. The prophet fol lows np that first shock by an other. Every single expression , of organized religion comes onder the prophet's lash. Sacrifices and offerings (v.ll), attendance at the sanctuary, ob servance of the Sabbath and other holy days (v. 13), church gather ings, corresponding to our rallies and conventions (v. 13), even prayers (v. 15). Put that Into modern terms: at tendance at church, Bible reading, tithing, praying if. that is all, then all is no good. It may be religion, and of course it is one kind of religion; but not the kind God wants. Indeed, Isaiah aaya God hates It; he ia "fed np" with J (vs. 11). "What was wrong? , Isaiah tells them that, toe, In short simple words. "Your hands are foil of blood." Oh, the people would protest, we are not killers, we don't lay a hand on anybody. Isaiah goes, on to explain: seek Judgment (I.e. justice), relieve the oppressed, Judge the fatherless, plead for the widow. "" You don't kin outright, if you churchgoers, he would say, but you are so indifferent to justice In your city, you take so little in terest in the people at the bottom of the heap, 'that people die here, widows and; orphans die, simply because no one cares. r , What Makes a Town Worth Saving?;; s ALAS, -. nobody did care. One i hundred and more years went by, and Jerusalem came close to Its end. But nobody thought Jthat disaster - could strike. The belief had grown in every one's jnlnd mat the Temple of the Lord would forever insure the safety of the city in which It stood. . V" ' t v But a young prophet, , Jere miah, preached a sermon on the same theme as Isaiah's (Jer. 7) It la net the temple that win save you, it is not i church attendance that ' win V As the men ot Jerusalem looked back to the great days of Moses, they .thought of the sacrifices and offerings, the tabernacle and the rituals and all the pageantry and paraphernalia , of a picturesque religion, as the .great thing that God had given them. . But God remembered it other wise. Jeremiah even says (with understandable exaggeration), that God had not said a word about sacrifices and. offerings; the Ten Commandments,- with all they im plied, were the main thing. What God looks Jor. back of an our church attendance and Bible rending, Is "justlcebetween a man 44 his neighbor." A place where that can be found is a good place.'
