SCHEDULE pM WOI Ames pm WTAD Qnlney pm WSUL U City f m Brotherhood on Our Roads OR THREE YEARS JL I was asked by a state com missioner to write a sermon on the subject of traffic He had heard me expound my theory ihat the cause stands more in need of evangelism than of ed ucation I turned the request over in my mind for weeks I gathered ma terial from near and far ma terial I thought would be helpful to me when I sat down to do the actual writing Three or four times I made a startBut each time I paused and looked back over what I had set down on paper I concluded that I sounded ever so much more like an editor out of his field than like a preacher or an evan gelist Finally I gave up on the as signment I bundled up all the material I had assembled and passed it along to the safety of ficial who had complimented me with the request for the sermon I dont know for sure but I have a hunch that the correspon dence that passed between me and a safety commissioner two or three years ago may have had something to do with the recent requestfor a mention of the safety cause from the pulpits of our state AS I SAT in pew of my own church I felt just a mite uncom fortable to hear my pastor Rob ert L Stone interpolate into his sermon a little preachment on the safety subject I asked myself couldnt I have done something like that in compliance with a There was in the little sermpifc ettea new and refreshing ap proach to the old and some might say threadbare thesis that the Golden Rule should pre vail on the highway and that we are indeed our brothers keep when we sit at the wheel of an automobile In the Parable of the Last Judgment Mr Stone observed Jesus of Nazareth says the de cisive test will be how we have acted toward people He says that test will separate us as surely as the shepherd separated the sheep from the goats THE STANDARD by which Christs judgment is made our Oklahomaborn pastor continued is that deed which is the spon taneous overflow of the inner purpose of our lives It is what we do when we are being our selves It is how we act toward people for their own sake when we are not expecting to get something out of it1 Something other than selfin terest Mr Stone concluded on this point must therefore be our ultimate goal in any campaign for traffic safety When I drive on the streets or the highways he pointed out the car coming toward me car ries a new neighbor closer and closer For a few vital seconds as we pass one another the man in the other car becomes the closest most important neighbor I have in this life And I in turn am just as im portant to him For a fraction of time little more than two feet of highway separates me from this Tiew neighbor There is no room no time for error But there re mains the judgment of Christ on my behavior FOR THAT MOMENT my is held in the hands of a man whose face I have never seen whose name I have never heard For that moment his life is in the hands of a man about whom he knows nothing And I must act responsibly toward him and the occupants of all other cars I meet or pass every time I get behind the wheel of my car It is almost as if Christ had said in the parable Whatever concern you showed for the humblest of drivers or pe destrians you showed unto me This in the view of one man of the cloth who has earned the con fidence and respect of the comj munity in which he preaches the word of God is one of the ma jor social problems of our days InIowa alone he pointed out more thar 300000 men women and children have been CONTINUED ON PAGE 2 Nikitas Ike Draffs Statement FUAD CHEHAB New Wave of
