Choose The Best!
Lesson for October 30, 1949
TT HURT Isaiah’s patriotism, and
his religion too, to see how fast
his country was going down hill.
Most of the troubles Isaiah saw
are with us today. Wealthy women
spending more and
more on them
selves; leaders who
self-seeking and in
enness high and
low. Isaiah, and
other prophets as
well, saw in the sin
and drunkenness of
the times the sign
and symbol of national decay. To
the careless, the selfish and the
wild, to those who were “leaders”
but were leading in the wrong di
rection, Isaiah kept saying, in
many different ways, Choose the

The Prophets’ Successors
THERE WAS a TIME when the
church put most of her preach
ing emphasis on individual religion:
Get right with God! was the cry.
The church of today has not by any
means given up her emphasis on
personal religion, but we are learn
ing from the prophets what social
righteousness means. The church
in our time is the logical and actual
successor to the prophet’s work.
The church is doing more
than ever to awaken the con
science of society, in fact the
church itself has a duty to be
the conscience of society. One
of the problems about which
our nation needs to be waked
up is one that Isaiah and Jere
miah faced, only we have it in
a more desperate form.
We call it alcoholism; they called
it by an uglier, more suitable word:
drunkenness. Even in those days
drinking was a problem; it cut
down the national health, wealth
and wisdom. Nowadays it is worse
because of two factors. One is the
higher percentage of alcohol in bev
erages such as whiskey, unknown
in those days. The other factor is

Where Drunkards Start

***■ must keep saying and persuad
ing people, Choose the Best! But it
does comparatively little good to
say this to the confirmed alcoholic.
It makes more sense to say it to
young people. For the sad feature
of alcoholism is that it begins in
the high schools.
The Yale School of Alcohol Stud
ies has collected evidence indica
ting that two-thirds of all alcoholics
begin drinking habits in the early
high school years.
A recent Gallup poll shows
the greatest percentage of
drinkers to be In the age group
21 to 39. Today, it is estimated,
there are four million alcohol
addicts or excessive drinkers
who are in more or less con
stant trouble with their fami
lies and employers.
Drunkenness costs industry in
America no less than one billion
dollars a year, and has a lot to do
with the break-up of homes and
with crime generally. '

SOMETHING i3 being done to
stop this, which you should
know about. There is a movement
known a3 Allied Youth, a national
educational organization working
in high schools all over the country,
fts work is positive, not negative.
It is not trying to pass laws or to
bring back prohibition. What it does
try to do—and it is succeeding re
markably well in many places—is
to give young people a way of life
that will enable them to meet social
pressure for drinking without loss
of “face.” Every Allied Youth post
in a school has three aims: I. To
meet the social and recreational
needs of young people.
Every New Year’s Eve, for
instance, when millions of
Americans are retting; sickly
drunk, more than 6,000 young
people gather in Detroit for the
biggest dry party in America,
sponsored by Allied Youth.

a fellowship of young people who
do net think it is necessary to
drink to be smart. Such a group
can change the attitude of an entire

education for total abstinence. Es
