Hitler's ardent admirers are annoyed that even four million rotes should read "No." The Jews of Germany could not well be blamed, •lice there art only OOOyOOO of them. ' They could not well cast 4£00,000 totes. Herr Goebbels, Hitler's propaganda chief, suggests In bls newspaper Angrlff that the antl-Hltler ! totes were cast by German Catholics. Shat "No" totes were Catholic totes seems probable, in tlew of the . attitude of Hitler's gorernment toward religion in general. Catholic flam In particular, and emphatic complaints made by the Vatican. It Is feared by Protestant* as well as Catholics that hostility to Chria-tun Wk inlty may develop and spread among Germans Ii It has done In Russia, Spain, Mexico and elsewhere. Hitler now bolds In his name all Hie powers once exercised by the kaiser, the relchstag, the various separate kingdoms and governments that make up the German empire. Also, quite Important, "Herr Hitler has the power to declare war and to make peace." It might be easier to declare war than to make peace In these times. He Is commander of the army, navy and air forces, which Indicates rapid progress for a gentleman who wan not a citizen of the German Batlon four years ago. Mrs. Ted Glovler, of Moorefield, W. Va., weighs 120 pounds, her husband weighs 135 pounds. Not that bis weight makes any difference. Their little boy, named, as you will guess, Franklin Delano Glovler, Just arrived, weighs fourteen pounds. Franklin Delano Glovler, will not attract as much attention as do the Ave Dionne quintuplets. But the mother is proud of the fact that her Franklin Delano weighs at birth one pound and a half more than all five of the quintuplets. Franklin Delano Glovler’s father says, "I can’t account for It." No accounting la necessary. Every baby, big or little, Is a marvel, and weight at birth makes little difference. One sickly little baby called Voltaire started a work that overthrew a long line of fat French kings. The big steel companies talk of R abandoning the NKA code altogeth-m* fearing tbe-eonsequences of put Hag their Industry absolutely in the control of organized labor. "More easily said than done,” they will be told. An old horse' mired In a swamp might talk about "abandoning the leeches that cling to him," but the leeches would cling. Aiherlcan Industry must go all the way through the process of being managed by those that never successfully managed anything else before. Maybe the experiment will lead to the millennium, maybe not AU must hope and co-operate, even the mired horse. Lloyd George, In his memoirs, says that while England was borrowing American dollars so Industriously, the "United States, shocked by the cost of war, was suspicious as the allies asked for credit." He does not add, as he might, that Americans would have been wise to refuse the credit since all of "our gallant allies" have turned out to be gallant welchers. New York presents to your attention an Interesting robbery In the borough of Brooklyn.

In other words, an idol or an image could not possibly represent or express the God which mankind should worship. God could not only not be an image but an image or an idol could not represent God. lf, then, we are .holding in thought a humanly personal or circumscribed God as the object of our devotions'; if we are worshipping a Clod wnicft we mentaly pattern in the similitude or likeness of a human being; in fact, if we are worshipping a finite God,—a God who could be represented or depicted by outlines, nounuaries or term,— are we not disobeying this sacred, unmistakable, and unavoidable command? If God is not something of a finite or circumscribed nature; if He is not a humanly conceived God, what is He? What does the Bible tell us about Him? It would be a rallier useless procedure for the Bible to tell us so definitely what God is not, and then leave us to blind conjecture to determine what He is or what He is like. Jesus, the best authority we have, stated in no unmistakable terms exactly what God is and how we are to worship Him. Jesus said that God is Spirit, and, ‘They that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth." Now waul does the term ‘Spirit’’ here signify? Does it signify something that is humanly devised, humanly circumscribed, pictured, or patterned? Does it signify anything that could he localized, limited, or outlined? No, indeed. It signifies something that is infinite; something that fills all space; something that is everywhere, in all places, at all times, and under all circumstances and conditions. It signifies essence or ever-presence, in contradistinction to that which might be conceived of as outlined, humanly formed or placed, it signifies something even mere infinite and ever present than the very air we breathe. Would you attempt to make a graven or likeness of something that tills all spathe? Could you, in fact, conceive of such an image or likeness?
