twelve little disciples whom I shall send into all the world to preach

the missionary leaders of their time. Northern Africa heard and de
veloped the highest civilization of the time. But finally Mohamed-
nism crossed over and cut the remnant of the northern church of
Africa and it went into the jungles to bleed to death.”
“Africa sank into utter darkness and the world turned her
back on Africa and the she remains in darkness today. Three hun
dred years ago a little ship landed at Jamestown bringing the people
of darkness into civilization. Why did God permit this little ship to
land, why was it not destroyed in a storm and torn to picese by the
rocks? He could have destroyed at as he did the Spanish Armada in
battle with the English fleet. It was because of his one profound
purpose—the missionary purpose. Young men God is calling you to

CRIBBING BROUGHT UP TO DATE
Zalimier is a medical student at Strassburg University, Germany
As a medical student Zalimier is a failure but no one questions his
ingenuity and knowledge in electrical matters.
Examinations were going on and Zalimier was answering ques

student. Suddenly the professor received a note: “Zalimier is cheat-

“Take me to your chamber” demanded the dean of the faculty.
The blushing Zalimier revealed the fact that there was a lady there.
But the investigation went on and soon the whole story was revealed.
A radio set with microphone in the examination room transmitted
the questions to a young woman doctor concealed in Zalimier’s room.
She then dictated the answers by telephone.
The student had a microphone, so the electrician declared, con
cealed under a bandage over a pretended cut on his finged. Complete
paraphernalia for a five tube wireless set and the necessary batteries
were part of the equipment.
Oblivious of the love elements in this touching little romance,
the university authorities have begun prosecution. Meanwhile the
kitchen staff are commenting: “Now we understand why his orders
indicated such an astonishing appetite just before the examination.
He ordered ration for two.” —“New Student*
