Daie Kvoiu Rogers, in her cur-
rent book, "To My Son" emphasiz-
es the fact that Christianity Is a
way of life and the good life is
the life where f&ith permeates all
decisions. From this standpoint,
that which is said , for Christianity
may be said for all religions. In
this, each has a responsibility to
the moral and ethical codes. Peace
of mind is related to how well
we meet our responsibility.
Some, seeking to make a> better
adjustment to life's situations,
write: How can you overcome fri-
ction in a Church? How can I
keep my boy honest? How can I
renew faith in my husband?
The l<ayman: "Our Church is
the fightenest Church you ever
saw. We average a new minister
every two years and there are
about three factions In the Church
that never see eye to eye.
we are not happy in our Church
association but we always come
back to the thought that we might
help the problem by staying with
"How can you overcome friction
in a Church?"
It is no more difficult to over-
come friction in a church than in
any other organization. The evi-
dence of disagreement is found in
any social organization and the
Church is no exception. Usually
friction arises in an organization
when the group has lost vision of,
and allegiance to, their purpose.
Trouble comes in Churches when
the program and pattern tends to
center an individual and group in-
stead of the Chrisitian Ideal. Fre-
quently, in this type of situation,
a minister becomes a part of the
self Vith a group - within the
Church for personal advantage ra-
ther than giving- himself entirely
to his ordained purpose.
Many Churches which have been
divided for years have come to un-
ity of purpose and bond of bro-
therhood through a tragedy. This
we have seen as as some Church
Buildings have burned and the
people have dedicated themselves
to the task of reconstruction. The
result: a United Church.
Unity of purpose can come
without fire but it cannot come
without challenge and vision. Be
a part of the challenge and vis-
ion to your people!
The Father: "My son is disho-
nest. He steals money at home
and a time or two has. taken
thingB from a Service Station in
our community. I talk to him and
whip him, and he promises he ne-
ver to do it again but he does.
What can I do?"
Usually dishonesty is born in
insecurity. This is another way of
saying that there is no juvenile
•delinquency but parental delin-
quency and it brings the en-
tire problem back to your door-
step and to you; and in this I
may not be fair. However, ,1 can
discuss this problem only as it is
related to similiar problems in o-
ther family situations.
Why docs your sen steal? If he
is like other boys who generally
steal it is because the demands
which life makes upon him are
not met through your provision..
. and as a parent you have the
responsibility for providing for
This does not mean that there
is to be no limit to his desiring
or requiring .... but it does
mean that you must share toge-
ther in meeting the demands that
are upon him in some cases and

It is your love, and not your
faith, that is in doubt now. If
you love your husband you will
have faith in him because faith
is born In love. If you do not love
your husband you will never have
faith in him.
Oft#n w« can discover unlimited
love for a person when we under-
stand more fully the reason which
lies in their thinking and account
for the things they do. If you
can discover the reason for your
husband's unfaithfulness, and un-
derstand his thinking in relation
to It, It Is possible that you may
have faith in him again. If not,
life is too short for you to live in
anxiety and dismay in an unhap-
py family situation.

In its engineering manual,
"Calculating Heat Losses," used

while a similar wall insulated
with a 3%-inch thickness of
mineral wool has a coefficient
This tells the heating contrac-
tor that the wall without insula-

as much heat escape from the
house as will a wall fully in-

The retirement test works this
way. A beneficiary who earns no
more than $1200.00 per year Is
considered a fully retired Indivi-
dual. If he earns more than $1200
and no more than $2080 he is par-
tially retired. His earned income
in excess of $1200 per year will
be alloted to the months of the
year at the rate of $80 per month.
A beneficiary earning $1600 In a
year would have $400 in excess of
$1200. Dividing the $400 by
equals five. Thus there would be
five months' benefits withheld u4
he would be paid for seven —■»

and net earnings from any self-
employment. In other words, any
Income derived from rendering ser-
vices of any kind must be includ-
ed in the $12oo retirement teat.
All beneficiaries should notify
the Social Security Administration
as soon as it appears that earn-
ings may exceed $1200 in a year.
