What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

STORY MATERIAL -Matthew 14:23-25: Acts 12:1-12. INTERMEDIATE, SENIOR AND ADULT TOPIC -Why and how to pray and the results. Prayer ought to be a matter of great concern to every believer (Psalms 145: 18). . Prayer Is a matter but little under- stood by Christians; in fact, only as divine aid is given can we really pray. The range of prayer is from the depths of the soul to the very thoughts of God. There was some- thing about the praying of Jesus that so impressed the disciples that they requested him to teach them to pray (Luke 11 :1). We nowhere read of them asking him to teach them how to preach. Praying is more important t,han preaching. No one Is fit to teach or peach who does not know how to pray. May each one enroll at once In the school of prayer with Christ as our teacher. He Is a most wining and capable teacher. In response to the disciples' request he outlines the fol- lowing principles of prayer; I. The Right Relationship of the One Praying (Luke 11:2). 1. Flifal-\Father.\ •In order to pray to God, the sup- pliant must be a child of God. God is a father; his gifts and blessings are for his children. This relationship can only be entered into through re- generation. Not all men have a right to say, \Our Father\ when address- ing God. Only those who are children of God by faith in Jesus Christ can so address Mid. It is not only profess- ing to be children but living like God's children. Children have rights and privileges which are dented to others. 2. Fraternal -\Our Father.\ ' God has more than one child. His children are bound up together in na- ture and interests. Even In our se- cret prayer we should address him as Our Father, which Is a recognition of the interests of others, alongside of ours. II. The Right Attitude in Prayer (Luke 11:2). 1. Reverent adoration. As children we have certain priv- ileges, and yet holy reverence becomes us. We should hallow his name; we should adore him as the eternal God. 2. Loyalty. When praying to God we should come with the spirit of loyalty which cries out \Thy kingdom come.\ 3. Submission -\Thy will be done.\ We should have no ,wilt of our own regarding the rule of God. We should let him direct us in all thinge. III. The Right Spirit (Luke 11:3-8) ' 1. Dependent Faith -\Give us our daily bread\ (v. 3). We should realize that not only what we have, hut life itself Is ours to enjoy because of him, and that he Is able to do for us exceedingly abun- dantly above ail that we ask or think. 2. Penitence and Love -\Forgive us our debts\ (v. 9). We should come to him realizing that we have sinned, and s cry unto him for forgiveness. Our hearts should be so filled with have for others that we will forgive those who sinned against us as God is willing to for- give us. 3. Holiness and Caution -\Lead us not into temptation\ (v. 4). Because we are God's children and realizing the depravity of our natures, and the consequent tendency 'to prac- tice that which displeases him, we should shrink from that which, If in- dulged in, would dishonor him, , 4. Intercessory (vv. 5, 6). The man who asked for bread did not ask for himself, but for a friend. Prayer which pleases God is unselfish In Its requests. 5. Perseverance (vv. 7, 8)• • Prayer which pleases God and gets results Is importunate, perseveres un- till the object is achieved. IV. Encouragement to Pray (Luke 11:9-12). '1. God's promise (vv, 9, 10). True prayer cannot fall of an an- swer, because God definitely promises that every one that ailketh receiveth, he that seeketh (indent, and to him that knocketh It shall he opened. 2. The example of an earthly fa- ther (vv. ,11-13). No fattier will give n stone to his son who asketh for bread, or a serpent instead of a fish, nor a scorpion in- stead of an egg. God is iaillnitely more willing to answer the prayers of his children than earthly 'parents are to give good gifts to their chil- dren. V. The True Goal of All Prayer (Luke 11:13). God's gift Is himself in the person of his Holy Spirit. All those who practice the principles which Jesus taught in this model prayer shall be blessed with the gift . of the Holy Spit - It. God's best gift to man.

Plain Facts About the Meat Business The Federal Trade Commission in its recent report on war profits, stated that the five large meat packers have been profiteering and that they have a monopoly of the market. These conclusions, if fair and just, are matters of serious concern not only to those engaged in the meat packing business but to every Otilei citizen of our country. The figures given on profits are misleading and the state- ment that the packers have a monopoly is unsupported by the facts. , The packers mentioned in the report stand ready to prove their profits reasonable and necessary. • • • The meat business is one of the largest American indus- tries. Any citizen who would familiarize himself with, its details insist be prepared for large totals. The report states that the aggregate profits of four large packers were $140,000,000 for the three war years. This sum is compared with $19,060,000 as the average annual profit for the three years before the war, making -it appear that the war profit was $121,000,000 greater than the pre-war profit. This compares a three-year profit with a one-year profit -a manifestly u,nfair method of comparison. It is not only misleading, but the Federal Trade Commissions apparently has made a mistake in the figures themselves. • • • The aggregate three-year profits of $140,000,000 was earned on sales of over four and a half billion dollars. It means about three cents on each dollar of sales -or a mere fraction of a cent per pound of product. Packers' profits are a negligible factor in prices of live stock and meats. No other large business is conducted upon such small margins of profit. • • Furthermore -and this is very important -only a small portion of this profit has been paid in dividends. The balance has been put back into the businesses. It had to be, as you realize when you coniiider the problems 11th packers have had to solve -and solve quickly -during these war years. To conduct this business in War times, with higher costs and the necessity of paying two or three tinies the former prices for live stock, has required the use of two or three times the ordinary amount of working capital. The addi- tional profit makes only a fair return on this, and as has been stated, the larger portion of the profits earned has been used to finance hinge stocks of goods and to provide additions and improvements made necessary by the enor- mous demands of our army and navy and the allies. • • • If you are a business man you will appreciate the signifi- cance of these facts. If you are unacquainted with busi- ness, talk this matter over with some business acquaint- ance -with your banker, say -and ask him to compare profits of the packing industry with those of any other large industry at the present time. No evidence is offered by the Federal Trade Commission in support of the statement that the large packers have a monopoly. The Commission's own report shows the large number and importance of other packers. The packers mentioned in the ststement stand ready to prove to any fair-minded person that they are in keen competition with each other, and that they have no power to manipulate prices. If this were not true they would not dare to make this positive statement. Furthermore, government figures show that the five large packers mentioned in the report account for only about one-third of the meat business of the country. They wish it were possible to interest you in the details of their business. Of how, for instance, they can sell dressed beef for less than the cost of the live animal, owing to utilization of by-products, and of the wonderful story of the methods of distribution throughout this broad land, as well as in other countries. The five packers mentioned feel justified in co-operating with each other to the extent of together presenting this public statement. They have been able to do a big job for your government in its time of need; they have met all war time demands promptly and completely and they are willing to trust their case to the fairmindedness of the American people with the facts before them.
