KENNETH J, FOBEKAN SCRIPTURE: Isaiah 3; 3; 23 : 28 ; 58: l-9a; Jeremiah 35. 13 DEy oTI °NAL READING: Romans 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 are irresponsible, self-seeking and in competent; poverty unprevented and uncared-for; drunk enness high and low. Isaiah, and other prophets as well, saw in the sin and drunkenness of the times the sign Dr. Foreman 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 best! * * * 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 advertising. • • • Where Drunkards Start n GAINST ALL THIS the church ***■ 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. ' • • • Allied Youth 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. 2. To establish within the school 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 school. 3. To build a solid foundation of education for total abstinence.

A thorough check of the cooling system prior to adding anti-freeze is a majr step in preparing your car for winter driving, according to I. L. Pierce, national service manager of Ford division, Ford Motor Com pany. “Thusands of motorists lose their anti-freeze every year through boil ing away or leakage simply because they failed to take this precaution at the start of the season,” Mr. Pierce explained. “Not only should the hose lines and connections b e thoroughly chocked for leaks, but the radiator an; 1 the entire cooling system should be flushed out removing the sludge and dirty water, which prevents free circulation.” “Starting assurance for your car despite freezing weather can be gained if the motorist also observes these few additional precautions: 1. Keep the battery fully charged and charging. A fully charged bat tery will not freeze in temperatures ordinarily encountered, but a very low battery may freeze and burst the case open at temperatures not much below 32 degrees F. See that the generator regulator is working properly. 2. At the approach of cold weath er, the crankcase should be drained, flushed and refilled with thee rrect grade of oil for the coldest weather you expect during the winter. Ford recommends use of SAE 10 or 10W oil in below freezing weather and i How To Relieve ; Bronchitis ICreomulsicn relieves promptly because jit goes right to the scat of the trouble) 'to help loosen and expel germ laden: phlegm and aid nature to soothe and) (heal raw, tender, inttamed bronchial!

See if the engine needs a tune up to insure quick starting. 4. If the manufacturer reemmends it, change to winter grease in trans mission and differential. (No change is necessary for 1949 Fords.) 5. Have brakes checked for win ter driving and be sure that tires are not worn dangerously smooth they will make driving on icy roads doubly hazardous. “Careful motorists will drive slow ly until the engine reaches normal operating temperatures,” Mr. Pierce said. “And by keeping the fuel tank full as much of the time as possible, they will prevent condensation of moisture and resultant freezing-up of the gas line. A good plan is to fill the gas tank at the end of the day’s driving, rather than at the start.” HOUNDS WANTED I will be in Jefferson November 3, in the afternoon, to buy large size, nice looking untrained hounds from 3 to 5 years old.
