British Second army troops
have broken the German ring
around the Alliek sky army trap-
ped near Arnhem in Holland.
In peacetime, Arnhem is a
busy communication center of
some 78,000 people.
Railways connect the city with
Utrecht, and steamers plying
the Rhine run regularly from
Arnhem to Cologne, Armsterdam
Situated on the right bank of
the Rhine, Arnhem is a pretty
city, with gardens and many
One of its oldest churches has
a chime of 45 bells, antl many of
its churches are centuries old.
Its town hall was built, in
the 15th pentury as a palace for
the dukes of the province of
Gelderland—of which Arnhem
is the captial.
In the city's public library are
many old Works of medieval
learning, and the remains of
long-ago civilizations that lived
and fought near Arnhem.
In the days of the Romans,
the settlement was known as
But the Romans • iid not con-
sider the town important enough
to fortify. Its fortifications were
built by Otto the Second in the
In 1478, Charles the Bold of
Burgundy captured the town,
Antl in the loth century, the
Dutch and the Spanish fought
for Arnhem. A century later, the
French and Dutch fought there.
In 1813, it, was stormed antl cap-
tured by the Prussians.
Modern Arnhem is an import-
ant market center.
Its main exports are woolen
goods and tobacco.
Its most important industries
are wool-combining and dyeing.
Another unit of American first
army troops is driving toward
the town of Cleve—the northern
anchor of the German Siegfried
Cleve is only 40 miles north-
west of tile German industrial
center of Dusseldorf, antl is sit-
uated on the main Colonge-Ams-
In peacetime, its population
averages around 22,000 people,
and its main manufacture are
boots and shoes.
Because of the nearby mineral
springs, Cleve in peacetime is
a favorite summer resort for both
continentals and British.
As early as the 11th century,
the Counts of Cleve founded
the city known now as Cleve.
Through the Middle Ages, the
town passed back and forth be-
tween the French and Germans,
antl at one time parts of the
Duchy of Cleve belonged to Hol-

lt is a truth all too often
erlooked that there can be no
knowledge of God's will beyond
what he has seen fit to reveal to
men. Only as God's has express-
ed his will concerning men can
men know or understand what
God desires at the hands of
man. Men cannot read the mind
of God anymore than they can
accurately read the minds of
their fellows. This revelation of
God to man is the Bible. God
has spoken to man. In times
past he spoke to the fathers by
the prophets in divers portions
and in divers manners. In these
days God has spoken to us in
his Son. The Son himself affir-
med that what he spoke was the
dictates of the Father. Reatl
Christ in .John 12:48-50. "He that
rejecteth me, and receiveth not
my sayings, hath one that judge-
til him, the word that I spake,
the same shall judge him in the
last day. For I spoke not from-
myself: but the Father that sent
me, he hath given me a com-
mandment, what I should say,
and what I should speak. Antl I
know that this commandment
is life eternal, the things there
SI I I
1 speak, even a
said unto me.
Christ then did not j
land merely on his
own origination. Mis revelation'
of God given to me was dictated
by the Father. And this is not )
strange for even with men none |
can know the mind of a man ex-
cept as that man reveals it him- [
self. Antl that by the spoken or 1
written word. Shall we not rec-
ognize antl acknowledge there [
fore that there can not be any
faith in things pertaining to
God and His will except as we.
find the evidenet
God, the Bible.
