"The Rungs of Life's Ladder" was the subject of the baccalaureate sermon preached to the senior class of Stilwell high school Sunday morning by the Rev. W. L. Broome, pastor,of the First Methodist Episcopal cjjurclii-South, His text was the Apostle Paul's words, "I count not myself to have apprehended; but this one thing I do, forgetting the things which are. be-, hind, arid reaching forth to those things which are. before, I press toward the mark fof which the prize of ward the, mark for the prize of the high calling, of. God Jesus Christ", ''Unsatisfied desires are ever the driving power of human We. It, is perhaps one of the most beneficient of laws that wants of the higher order can not be wholly satisfied," he said.. "The larger one's capacity is for desiring and'craving, the greater the difficulty of finding adequate resources for meeting them. "  ' "Unsatiafaction is, the iirst condition of larger achievement. The satis, fied, complacent man has reached his goal..He has thought his best thought, made his best speech, done his best work. Henceforth life to him W>U be a continually diminshing quantity.
