IThen Ruth Rolling, 10. year-old Brockton, Moss., high
school girl, teas held in $3,000 hail on two charges of burglary,
a great furore teas raised. The case called attention to the high
jinks of a group of high school hays and girls who are alleged
to have stolen to get spending money and also to hare staged
risque bathing parties at a local swimming pool. Judge Rmce of
Bockton issued a catching condemnation of business men icht> ap

Does not this girl offer
a terrible illustration of the
proverb that "an idle brain
is the devil’s workshop"?

thoughts and occupied with
useful deeds would not have

ning and end of college terms. It seems
to mo that the temptation is less in
bummer, when Nature offers her pure
companionship. But the Winter season
finds thousands of young people who
have been graduated or dropped from
college, and who are seeking a job or
profession, or settling into social life.
It is Iks boys and girls lilts you that
I want to ask this question! Are you
going to yield yourself to Divine guid
ance in shaping yonr life or are you
going to begin your adult life in a
prison cell because you tried burglary
for a thrill?
In this time of perplexity it is well
to remember that we are all clay on
the wheel of the Divine Potter. It is
up to us to let Him shape us into a
vessel of beauty and service, or to
spoil His work by stubbornly retaining
the grit and stiffness of uncleansed
clay.
Jeremiah, the Prophet, tells us: “Tho
potter wrought a work on the wheels.
And the vessel that he made of clay
was marred in the hand of the potter;
so he made it again another vessel,
as seemed good to the potter to make
it” Then the Lord said, “01 house of
Israel, cannot I do with you as this
potter? As the clay is in the potter’s
hand, so arc yo in mine hands, O!
house of Israel.” .
In the time of Jeremiah the first
thing a potter did was to pick up
lumps of clay, lay them on a table and
wash out the grit and rock and sand.
When we come to the first tablf oi
the Divine Potter, we are just like the
unrefined piece of clay brought^ in from
tho mountainside. We are filled with
the rock of unbelief, with the grit oi
sin, with the sand of failure. The
Divine Potter, like the human, takes
his lump of clay, and splash it goc:
into a big tubful of water.
Don’t you think that a good manj
of you are foundering in that tub ol
water? The Divine Potter ha* to wa»li
hi* clay thoroughly. With Hi* owr
hand* He waihe* out the sand anc
grit and remove* the rock out of th<
clay until it i* thoroughly washed.
Sometimes the human pieces of claj
cry out and say, “Oh, Master, I an
just a dirty piece of clay 1 1 can nevei
be a beautiful vessel like that persor
They have lived such beautiful lives 1
Lord, I cannot become like theml I
am only a rough piece of clay.”
The cry of the clay must be : “Create
in me a clean heart!’’
Ofttimes there are bubble* in the
clay. These must be taken out. Do
you know that there are bubbles in
human clay?
The process of eliminating: bubbles
is called “treading: the clay,” and is
very hard work We can almost hear
the sound of the paddle wielded in the
hands of the Divine Potter as Ho
"treads out” tho clay. It comes down
blow after blow upon the clay as it
lies upon the table. The bubbles are
being taken out.
First one bubble comes out and then
another, und the clay sinks and be
comes more malleable. Once the lump
looked all puffed up and rounded out
and beautiful. Now it keeps going
down and down.
Have you over had that oxporionco?
Soma have. Tho Divino Pottar puts a
lump of human clay on tho tablo and
begins to tako out its selfish desires
and ambitions until thoro is nothing
loft of thorn. It is a hard process.
After treading the clay the potter
places it upon a great wheel. The
human clay, like that on the potter’s
table, is no longer hard and stiff by
the time it is placed on the wheel. It
has learned how to submit.
On his wheel the potter moulds the
clay. The vessel must be as beautiful
within as it is without. If the clay
moves faster than the wheel it falls
off. Just so the human clay cannot
run ahead of the "Divine Potter nor
lag behind Him. You must walk ac
cording to His ways. The potter cuts
away and smooths down defects in the
vessel.
Just so the Lord will make us a
beautiful vessel of service if we are
wielded in His haads.
Remember, He tells us He Is the
Potter; we are the clay.
VINDICATED
rhit Striking Sculpture, "Virgin of the
\nnunciation,” by the Eminent Artist,
5. Bieler-Waugh, Started a Violent
Controversy Over the Question of Its
Esthetic M«?r*t* and Pietistic Propriety
Vhen Displayed in the Paris Autumn
ioIan. The Consensus of Expert
Opinion Was That It Is a Dignified,
if “Advanced,” Piece of Carving.
J—* NCUOACHMENTS on traditional
art forms always meet with vio
lent opposition. This is true of
secular subjects, but doubly emphatic
whenever the question of piety is in
ruded, no matter how admirable the
atentions of the artist may have been.
Paris, certainly no narrow-minded
ity, was recently rent by a vigorous
ispute over the propriety of exhibiting
m the Autumn Salon a statue by S.
Uiehler-Waugh, eminent sculptor, en
litled “Virgin of the Annunciation.”
it was pointed out that the carving
night bo criticized on the score that
■he figure was “unnatural” and too
long, and that the hands resembled
those of an Egyptian mummy.
But brilliant pamphleteer^, railing to
the artist’s defense, rejoined that the
vv hole aspect and attitude of the statue
vns extraordinarily reverential and the
ace’s calm beauty atoned for any
‘modernity” that might be resented
otherwise. Mr. Biehler-Waugh's ad
mirers, outnumbering his antagonists,
Inally won out.

HOW TO DRESS WELL
■
By ANNE U. STILLMAN, Wif* of the Millionaire Ranker.
Tut dinner dress is one tnnt lew
of us pay much attention to—
but we should! You hear a wo
man say to a saleswoman I have
to have a dinner dress—and
the saleswoman says: “What
kind do you want?’’
Usually the woman answers,
“Oh, 1 don’t care—show mo
what you have.”
This seems to be a habit of
every woman—unless she’s a
professional vamp. Then sha
knows that in this dress sha
often attracts the most atten
tion—it is the dress in which
she perhaps has the first op
portunity of creating an im
pression, and first impres
sions are so important.
But the professional vamp
is really rare compared with
the great mass of women who
say, "Oh, 1 don't care—show
me what you have.” 1 am
convinced that not nearly
enough attention is paid to
the dinner dress.
It is the dress in which you
dine with your friends, mother
and relatives usually.
And heaven help you if
you are a mess! They
will look you over thor

only moment in the
day when there is any

The World's Largest Dog
ALASKAN wolfhounds, celebrated
in story and song, have many
remarkable achievements to
their credit, but it has remained for
Ilak, one of their breed, to
attain a unique distinction. „
He is si* feet, two and a half
inches tall when he stands
upright and is declared by
canine experts to be without
doubt the largest dog in the
world.
An accurate estimate of his extraor
dinary size can be made by contrasting
his imposing-proportions with those of
the tiny miss, Josephine Harrison, one
of his warmest admirers, who is caress
ing him. Ilak’s name, taken from an
Eskimo expression, means, “I like
you," which Is appropriate, for, despite
his strength and apparent ferocity of
expression, he is in reality the gentlest
of dogs
Other Alaskan dogs who have made
the first page because of their feats
include ‘‘Nigger," the four-footed hero
who crossed a 4,000-foot mountain
range in a blizzard, with the tempera
ture 40 degrees below zero, to save
the life of his master, and Baldy of
Nome, grandson of the illustratious dog
of the same name who distinguished
himself by demonstrating his ability
to pul) a half ton alone and un
aided Both these animals are widely
popular, but, because of his physinue,
Ilak is likely to surpass them in'popu
lar estimation.

I)rnr, 1 am grateful for those harsh words.
Your sharp invectives hurled at me,
Like dagger points
That bruised and made me bleed,
Have roused me from my lethargy and sloth.
Speak on.
Though unawares you found me
For the moment backing in dim half-light
When 1 should have sought the sun—
/ still aspire.
Those stones you threw
Have stirred my pools of thought
So I am glad. . .
Yet underneath their surface
There are wells of being
Still untouched
Calm as the bed of the ocean
When a storm churns the waves above.
Th<$se wells lie still
But they can gush in a geyser
Splendid and sparkling,
Dancing in fairy mist
And rainbow radiance.
I wonder if stones can stir
Them also from slumber . .
