ALLIES WINNING ON ALL FRONTS THE NEGRO PROBLEM By H. W. PROVENCE In the March issue of "The Commission, there is a thought-provoking article by Dr. Edward A. McDowell, Assistant Professor of New Testament Interpretation in the Southern Baptist Theo logical Seminary. I wish that every Southern Baptist pastor might read that ar ticle. While some of its im plications may not be accept ed without reservation, yet it should help to promote closer cooperation between white and Negro leaders, co-opera- ion which is essential to me satisfactory solution of the Negro problem. There is undouoteaiy too much race prejudice among us, though it is by no means confined to the South. But the cure for this prejudice is not to be found in tne pro grams of the most vocal cri tics of the South, whether politicians or preachers or editors.

All credit be given the Lord who will not suffer ilis cause to be annihilated by evil ones. They may war, but they will never win a gainst God's people, once they turn to God. And as the LorcS turns the tide of battle in favor of thf Allies, may it be reflected in the hearts of them to tun more unto the Lord. All ol us at home should be more careiul now than ever, to do what is right in the sight ol God, by way of all that "we have in the rationing, the work, farm, school and al programs of the war. Co operation with God at all times and in all things b lis people is needed. With out Got we cannot win this war. Let no one become care less in any way because we are winning. It is reported that some Deonle are releas intr their visrilant hold in thf war plants, and in personal set-ups; this should not be. Over Optimism can become i a ruin to anyone. Let our na tion work on, work the harder, pray the. more and light the better until God, through ilia Leaders that He has m charge, call off. The enemy is not beaten, neither down. Look at Italy, watch her care fully. Look at Germany, care fully note her latest maneuv ering. Never take your eye off Japan. Be not deceived hv nv. Trust God and fijcht and An the riirht bv GoJb way of life. Results will be complete victory for His pea- pie. , . This is no time for publi cations, labor or capital, Jew or Greek, or anyone amongrt tire-Allies to be building evih walls between themselves. Trust in God, and whatever is needed among us accord ing to His Will will be done. Hope for peace by the Will of God. I 1 DEAN J. L.
