ON THE HOME FRONT.
Evei^ part of this war must be
considered in relation to every other
part and to the whole picture. Our
Chinese allies are driving back the
Jnps In the center of a line thousands
of miles long while our fighting men
hammer at both' ends. The brave
Russian real stance has kept nail
planes from flying in clouds to attack
British and American planes and
tunks in the African desert. Our
ships brought American guns, tanks,
and bombs to Africa, and the more
than 200 ships launched or started
on Labor day were a sign that we
will reach bur goal of 10 times that
number next year.
To build those ships, together with
thousands of guns, tanks .and
planes for ourselves* and the united
nations, will take far more skilled
workers than we now have. As ablebodied
young men leave war plants,
for fighting services, their places
will be taken by older men and by
women. By the cn'l of next yeur'one
out of every four women?perliaps
one out of everjfllthree?between 18
and 44 years old will be employed,
at least a third of them In war Industries.
In the meanwhile, lalior
shortages In 12 western states have
cut the output of copper, aluminum,
i zinc, and lumber. In these areas
workers from now on must get "certificates
of separation" if they
change jobs. , *

The details of character study In
the Joseph stories give them a human
Interest almost unexcelled. The
gradual building up to the climax
la skillfully done, holding the attention
of young and old alike. The
climactic scene Is when Joseph
breaks down and tells bis brothers
of his Identity. No longer can he
hold tbem in stinpense. They have
responded well to his testing. He la
more than ready to receive them
with welcome and forgiveness.
They cannot believe him at flrsi
and are still fearful that he Is testing
them further in some subtle way
Hut Joseph clearly indicates that ta(
Is not angry or resentful of theii
former tseatment of him. Looklnj
back upon It all, he interprets it ai
the hand of God at work In theii
lives. Unknowingly they *tuiye beei

Inspiration of thy holy spirit/'.
- "As we forgive those who trespass
agalust us" so "forgtre us." We
might well change the position of
these two phrases of our Lord's
prayer so that the degree of our forgiveness
comes first- We determine
the measure of forgiveness 1- accorded
us by that which we extend
to others. Joseph set the pace. His
futher and brothers followed his example!
Happy was the reunion made
possible fhrough the outgoing of this
positive, forgiving force. It is an nbnolute
requirement for a happy family
circle. God. grant thnt we inay
help to realize It In the family of
