duct of worship service was his pas
tor. Rev. A. K. Dudley, of Winter
Park Presbyterian Church. Dr.
Mebane is an elder in this church
and one of the leading surgeons of
Wilmington. He spoke on the prob
lem of suffering in its relation to
the Christian faith. He pointed out
that the Christian faith does not
guarantee aginst the ills and suf
fering of this world, but gives one
the grace and strength to meet ev
ery situation. He pointed out some
of the Biblical teachings on this
subject, and drawing from his own
experience as a doctor, he forcibly
Do You Want To Cut

this. The answer is in the Report
of the Commission on the Organi
zation of the Executive Branch of
the Federal Government. This
twelve-man, bi-partisan Commission
was unanimously created by Con
gress with the approval of the
President. At the suggestion of Mr.
Truman, former President Hoover
was made its Chairman and Secre
tary of State Dean Acheson, Vice
Chairman. The late president
Franklin D. Roosevelt long had ad

There is a two-fold purpose
behind the effort to reorganize the
Executive Branch of the Govern
ment: One the elimination of in
efficiency caused by overlapping
and duplication; two this should
lead to a reduction of your taxes.
If our Government can save from
three to four billion dollars a year
by more efficient methods of con
ducting our business, failure to act
is stupid short-sightedness.
Action, however, depends upon
the President and Congress. The
President has already submitted a
number of reorganization recom
mendations. The Congress has
adopted several of these, most im
portant having to do with the
housekeeping of the armed forces,
which save the taxpayer more than
$500,000,000 a year. But these are
only first steps. There will ba more
ahead if Congress is made to realize
Mr. and Mrs. Taxpayer want more
tax-saving economies. Congressmen
and Senators will vote for just so
many of the Commission's recom
mendation as you, their consti

out the day .Rev. W. B. Hood pre
sented the report of the Permanent
Committee on Finance, covering

try Work of the Southern Presby-'
terian Church spoke on the impor-
tance of the small town and country
church. He gave the recent study
of all the Presbyteries and found
that the city churches grow by
members by letter. whiJo th .'
try churches receive more upon
profession of faith. Since the spirit
ual birth rate of the small churches
is greater, and because the church
es in the urban centers depend up
on those who leave these churches
for their growth, he urged that
Presbytery not only be interested in
the small town and country church
but give it help where needed Dr

Typographical errors as well as
printed statements susceptible of
different interpretations often get
into the paper to the horror of the
editor who discovers the blunder
only after the edition has been
mailed out. But such embarrassing
accidents happen occasionally in
the best regulated offices where the
proof-reader is not too alert.
For instance a newspaper in re
porting a wedding nad this:
"She had tight bridesmaids at
the ceremony." i
Here a "t" where an "e" was
meant, caused the blunder.

Q:f . ,. mfC
Mother doesn't distinguish between her children be
cause one has red hair or another, blue eves. She
cherishes them all - - and knows that what they are
is determined, not by what they look like, but by what
s in their hearts.
So it is with all men. As children of God, all mankind is equal, one
to another. As we attend church each Sabbath, let us heed the words
of the minister of our faith . . . and let us pray for guidance, that we
might learn to understand and love all our neighbors and fellow citi
zens . . . and teach our children the ways of truth and understanding.
And let us resolve now, at the start of this New Year, to support our
churches liberally, and attend them regularly. For it is" through
them - - and them alone, that we can find true peace.
