The Good Mut Fight
Lesson for January 21, 1951
OU WOULD think that it ever
I there arrived on this planet a
really good person, he would be
popular with everybody. People are
tired of meanness, they are sick of
being lied to and
cheated. They are
tired of the sins of
others, even tired of
their own. So if a
really good person
should appear, one
in whom-"was no
ly transparent to
wouldn't everyone Dr- Foreman
flock to him, wouldn't he have the
human race in the palm of his
hand, as it were, In a short time
:;. V'v -Agelong
THE ANSWER is No. It Is not well
to be too optimistic about human
nature. As a matter of fact, some
of 'the best persons history has
known met some of the bitterest
opposition. Indeed, when One came
who was completely good, whose
life was all light and no shadow,
he was no better treated and no
more warmly welcomed than, less
gooa persons nave oeen. . j
Jesus Christ had his enemies, ,
; strong and wdlrganlsed. The ,
! number of those who believed
In h I n was comparatively '
small; the number who did
not believe er Ignored him al
together, was 'enormous.
The history of mankind Is the
history of a war, the age long war
between good and evil, between
God and his enemies. The story of
Jesus Is one -chapter in this . his
tory, the most Important by far,
but by no means the first one or the
last " ' .- ;v-.';W' .,A:.y-' :
Why Was Jesus Hated? ?
THE READER should - examine'
the record In the Gospels and
try to think for himself who opposed
Jesus, and why they' did so. One
striking fact is that Jesus' enemies
were not what we call the 'lower
classes," much less the "criminal
classes." fils enemies-were rather
from out of the top drawer, as we
might say. They were the financial,
social and religious leaders of his
time. They finally got him executed
as a criminal..'- ws '.f'-V
If there' had never been any
one te contradict the records .'
. of the Sanhedrln, that high '
; court of Jerusalem, and those,
records had become recognised
- as the truth, Jesus would .have
; gone down In history, if re
J membered at all, as a trouble-maker,
a lawless and worthless
. man, whose execution was a
protection te society.
Why were .these leading ; men,
Jesus' . "distinguished" contempo
raries, so wrong about Jesus T
" ' . .. ' ; 1
"At he is, so are we..."
THE. READER should think this
out for himself. On reason can
be mentioned here: It Is very easy
for wrong to be so long accepted
and so ' strongly entrenched that
it is universally taken for right
Then when the right comes along,
especially when in the form of an
idea suggested by some one not of
the upper crust it actually seems
to be wrong. People kept long in
a dark room find light painfull
Any one who tries te follow
, Jesus ' will find himself up
against the same sort of op-
x position. "?-"'.;:.' v..- ''
Any one who proposes to live as
Jesus lived, " or to change our ac
customed patterns of society' In the
direction which Jesus pointed out
will be called (as-be was) a crack
pot a dreamer, an impractical fel
low who does not know enough to
go In when it rains.
Our Divine Alliance
CONSIDER one example of this.
A Christian who makes up his
mind to dedicate his body a "living
sacrifice" to God. and therefore not
to handicap himself with the drug
of alcohol, is certain, In many
places, to be considered a sort of
crank, it not tnat people wui
laugh at him, though they will:
people will be angry with him for
his stand. They will do all they
can to make him' break his pledge,
Instead f admiring a eleaa
"and free' Ufe, many people are
not content unless ' they en -
soli that cleanness and . break '
down that freedom. So to stand -for
Christ in any aspect 'of Ufa
'-' Is not easy. "Hit ' we need ; te
remember we fight ne lonely
fight: our cause la net forlorn,
Just as Jesus in Galilee was al
ways On the side of those who' were
beaten fend battered by .sin and
evil, - but -still fighting, so now the
ever-living Christ is always on the
side of thosrg who in their hearts
desire good and not evil, cleanness
and not dirt truth and not Ilea,

Conservative-Liberal forces seem
to be about evenly split in the
Senate, with liberals -- believe it
or not - - maybe having a slight
edge. On the House side, the con
servatives seem to be In the saddle

latter could give the Republicans

their 10 votes as a bloc, and lift

A bill has been drawn up de
signed to put former Judge Luther
Hamilton of Morehead City back
on the retired list and to restore
the back pay held up recently. As
you may "recall, Judge Hamilton
retired Of "total disability" one
day before he would have bad his
Superior Court Judgeship taken
away. He subsequently held special
terms of court, which the Supreme
Court ruled he did not have the
right to do. The Supreme Court
inferred further .that by holding
those courts Hamilton bad auto
matically "unretlred" himself and
was no longer entitled td the more
than $500 a month pension. At
torney General Harry McMullaa
later ruled that Hamilton's pay
check should be withheld. .
This bill, which may be Introduc
ed this week, would say in enect
that once a Judge Is retired he le
gally stays retired. Although It does
not mention Hamilton it would put
him back on the retired list legally
and restore the pay he has lost
since McMullan's ruling. , .
Two years ago, the House had
passed an appropriations bill that
among other things, called for a
$2,200-3,100 pay scale for teachers.
The purse-pinching senate refused
to go along,: and re-referred the
bill to the Senate appropriations
Twenty-4hree members of that
committee sat down to whittle on
the bill. School forces could count
11 sure votes. Economy-minded
forces could count 11 sure votes.
The 23rd mad was Senator . Paul
Jones of Pitt,' a dentist who was
vitally Interested In. a $1,000,000
appropriations for a dental school
at the University of North Caro
The school forces thought Dr.
Jones would vote for them. But
when the tally, was made, It was
12-11 in favor of knocking off the
pay raise for the school teachers
and putting it on the jiow-tamous
Bat the million dollars for the
dental school which had been
threatened with the economy knife
was left on the appropriations
bill.. ; '-'' "''
Ironically, that dental school has
not been built and is on the list of
permanent improvements that Eco
nomy-Leader Grady Rankin of Gas
ton has Intimated will be studied
with surgery In mind.
Dr. Jones also has a bill of much
Importance to him in the hopper.
It would appropriate $70,000 to buy
land for Eastern Carolina Teachers
College in his home town of Green
ville. It seemed headed for a quick
okay by the Senate appropriations
committee, then suddenly was stop
ped and held up for later action.
Could It be that economy forces
will saye ie , E.GTXC bill over
Dentist Jones' head for later bar
gaining purposes? . .

Since the contracts have been

how the building can be changed.
: Meantime, the restaurant folks
are in this position:, they feel they
might not be able to stop the high
way building arrangement for a
possible future restaurant through
legal action. They are not sure they
could stop the actual operation of
a restaurant in the building by
court action. They would like to
have the legislature bar such, pro
