League of nations at Geneva needed a Library it was Able to turn to Rockefeller for $2 for a building half for books. Most of the newer Rockefeller benefactions Are now self liquidating in cider to prevent the influence of the a dead hand a which j often guides the use of donated Money Long after both Benefactor and the original need have i shed. Such was the International colonial town is restored a education Board which has spent he has added about j a Aeo omoo. Acline and principal. His $175,000,000 to fathers benefactions this is the second of six stories on John d. Rockefeller jr., and the present and future status of the Rockefeller millions. On various scientific and educational projects All Over the world and whose remaining projects Are consolidated with the general education Board. A passion for construction Foremost among College beneficiaries after the University of Chicago has been Hampton and by Willis Thornton Nea service staff correspondent together the Rockefeller father and son have probably Given away $750,000,000 the present head of the clan has actively continued the work of his father in adding perhaps $175,000,000 to former benefactions which he continues to help administer. In the gifts of the younger Rockefeller there is a Strain of warmth of personal interest of imagination and of cosmopolitanism that was not apparent in the vast a general purpose Quot contributions of the father. The older Man would never have thought for instance of the restoration of colonial Williamsburg va., with which the son has produced an unique memorial of pre revolutionary times buying and restoring an entire town at a Cost of $15,000,000 for the pleasure and inspiration of 300,000 visitors a year. Tile first generation Rockefeller would probably never have been interested in putting $500,000 into rebuilding the Shakespeare memorial theater at Stratford after it burned Down or in contributing $1,500,000 toward rebuilding the Imperial University Library in Tokio after an earthquake had damaged it. The benefactions of the younger Rockefeller reflect a mind that is at Home in All the world and in every Field. Faith never shaken the Rockefeller contributions to purely Baptist causes have virtually ceased while the keen interest in religion and in religious causes remains it is now expressed in interdenominational movements. Rockefeller jr., poured $2,-000,000 into the abortive inter Osceola society a personal flapper Fanny by Sylvia Coen. 19j7 by Nia service inc to Reg a rat.

Travelling in France Rockefeller noted the shabby and generally run Down condition of the palaces at Versailles and Fontainebleau saw the War time ravages at Louvain and Rheims. The result was $3,000,000 for repairs at Versailles and Fontainebleau restoration at Rheims and $100,-000 toward the rehabilitation of the Louvain Library. Interested in Parks and forestry observing the difficulties of poor students abroad led to establishment of a Chain of International student houses in several countries to provide cheap and Good living quarters for students in strange lands. In each there is a proportion of native students so that International understand i lug May be promoted. Nearly $11,- 000,000 has gone into this project. Travelling More widely than his father Ever did. Rockefeller has become interested in Parks and forestry it is due to his save the red Wood league it $2,000,000 a that Many of the giant Sequoias of the West still stand. Acadia National Park is entirely a Rockefeller gift the land having been acquired and improved for $4,000,000 and presented to the government. Rockefeller loves the Palisades of the Hudson and he bought $7,000,000 Worth of land including the Mast sightly Cliffs thus preserving them As a Scenic feature of new York. Fort Tryon Park historic scene of Washington a last stand in the Retreat from Manhattan Island has been bought at a cast of More than $6,000,000, and will not Only become a Park but the site of George Gray Bernard a collection of medieval sculpture which will be housed in the new Cloisters museum. They like his taxes the Timberland of Yosemite National Park have been preserved to the tune of $1,650,000, and Rockefeller has spent $1,725,-000 on land in the Jackson Hole Region of Wyoming in an Effort to establish a National Park in this Scenic country. Objections of local government units and taxpayers there who like Hie $10,000 annual taxes which Rockefeller still pays have temporarily halted this benefaction. Half a million for the new York botanical gardens a for the new York zoological society and $2,000,000 for new Yorkus metropolitan museum Are matched by the $700,000 Given to the Library of Congress for its new Union Catalon and More than $3,-000,000 for the magnificent new York Public Library. When the restoration and rebuilding of a Complete pre revolutionary town historic Williamsburg va., Cost Rockefeller $15,000,000, and Soo too americans visit it yearly.

Tuskegee institutes which have received $3,500,000 for the education of negroes. Rockefeller s own Alma mater Brown University with Princeton and Harvard have shared Rockefeller s millions and far away Palestine can look on its museum of archaeology at Jerusalem with $2 Worth of thankfulness to the Rockefeller. A passion for building and construction notable in most of the recent Rockefeller projects is also seen in several housing experiments totalling $13,500,000 in and around new York City. But to list even the Fields into which the present Rockefeller has sent his millions let alone the individual projects would be impassible. He is besieged at All times by hundreds of daily requests for Money either for personal use or for a pet such requests run up to 20,000 a year and require quite an organization merely to handle them. To purely personal requests a form letter is usually returned. To those suggesting a social objective personal letters almost always go explaining Why the request does not conform with the Rockefeller ideas to prevent poverty with his father Rockefeller Long ago arrived at a philosophy of giving to which he adheres As consistently As possible. A your Endeavor a he said a has not been so much to relieve poverty but to prevent poverty through making it Ujj Assile for the largest possible number of people to live in healthful surroundings and to obtain educational opportunities fitting them to earn their own next How the present Rockefeller was trained for his Job and How a this fathers example meant something different to him than you might suppose.

Gilroy i editor of Advance the Story of Joseph reaches a further stage and a beginning of tragedy Iii years to come that neither tile old patriarch Jacob nor lits successful and powerful son Iii Egypt could foresee. How closely Success and tragedy Are associated in history and Iii the lives of individuals und families Here was Jacob going Down in his old age carried by his sons with their Little ones and their wives Iii the wagons which pharaoh had sent to a Lieut Welcome and preferment in Egypt under Hie influence and Power of the flourishing Joseph a Power in tile land even greater than Pharoah his master. There is a great pageant in the picture of Joseph making ready his Chariot and going up to Goshen to meet ills father and noticing could surpass the simple words of the Story that describe tile meeting As Joseph presenting himself to his father a fell on ills Luck and wept on hts neck a Good w Hile a Jacob himself was experiencing emotion too deep for utterance. A that he could say to Joseph was Quot now let me die since i have seen thy face that thou Art yet a in yet it was not Many years As the ears of history go until this colourful and emotional descent in 1 Egypt had become the first in tragedy As a ruler arose who a knew not Joseph a and tile Chil j Dren of Israel fell under tile bondage of u Burd und grievous taskmaster. Joseph with tile Wisdom and vision that characterized Ull his acts seemed to foresee some such possibility for he made his Brothers swear Eliut they would return to their own land. If these other sons had had the deep love of their Homeland that had continued in Joseph despite All his years of hardship and of wealth and Power in a foreign land what years of deep suffering might have been spared the children of Israel and How different the future history of that people would have been. A a $ the Story of Joseph ends with this lesson but it is necessary to see that Story not in any one detail or incident but As a whole. Few stories provide better teachings concerning the effects of evil the rewards of righteousness the value of vision und planning and the strength und Power of forgiveness and magnanimity. It is Rich in human values and its teachings apply to our modern Complex world As much As to an ancient time when the sufferings of people from famine and the Power of Kings and potentates were More marked in human step history Joseph was an example of what Wise leadership can do in successful social planning he looked ahead to the needs of the people and stored up resources for emergencies. In in age when crises can be foreseen More accurately than Iii the ancient world and when resources and ways of harbouring them Are greatly multiplied what might be accomplished by statesmen As honest unselfish magnanimous and foreseeing As Joseph super 72 i test anti Knock 13c 4c less than at the state line tax paid kerosene in a i Jal lots.
