sorcery ceremony they con ducted last night under a harvest moon in an effort to end the plagues of cancer and tuberculosis The prisoners Thomas Christman and Russell Battleof were found performing incantations about a cauldron on the banks of the Alle gheny river Beneath the cauldron was a fire and in it was a brindled tomcat It was a brindled cat and it didnt get a chance to meow thrice twice or even once The hedgepig didnt whine nor did the harpier cry time but despite unfavorable conditions Thomas Christman and Russel Bat teof gathered around the cauldron for a revival of medieval Two police officers were attracted y the huge fire on the banks of the Hegheny River e found a In the cauldron stewuut smelling Both officers held their noses while Christman and Batteof explained their

situation in a nut shell is that no holiday in giving exists this year The principle of local respon sibility still holds Unless all of us contribute as much or more than we have given before there will be un precedented suffering this win ter in our country of too much And further there will be a slowing up of the absolutely necessary work of the character building organizations which must go on hand in hand The mind must be developed as well as the physical body gtrength ened The Federal appropriation can and will be a source of added strength but we must carry on locally as in past years in order to reap the full benefit from it And it is for that purpose that the second years funds effort known as the Community Chest got under way in Indiana today to continue up to and including Friday September 30 The ini tial meeting of the executives the majors the captains and the team workers will be held in the First United PresbyUflan Church this evening at oclock There the lalst

problem of the nation we pass to other equally important human needs and ate confronted by the truth that man does net live by bread Important and indis pensable as food is it does not supply the entire need of the people In times of distress there are always some who interpret life in terms of a single allembrac ing need In our present econ omic depression in the minds of many this need is expressed by only one All other philantropies they feel should be cast overboard If America were bankrupt all her industries and banks closed her farm lands and mineral re sources laid waste there would be no question but that rejief would be the allimportant con sideration But even the worst pessimist among us would not I believe grant these things are true It is vitally important that having
