who have dominated the affairs of their countries, and influenced
the people of many other places. And in the minds of many, it
didn't seem to make such terrible difference whether these
rulers were good or bad. It was their power that had been ad-
mired. The United States was founded on a different idea, and
that idea has had a tremendous influence on the way the world

It may be a strange course of events that political power
does not carry quite the punch it once did; and this country has
come to place more importance on the work of such God-fearing
men as Billy Graham. In line with this trend, secular papers
are showing no hesitancy in playing up the work that such men
are doing. And the publicity thus afforded will make that work
a hundred times more effective. Even the little publicity being
given in this article could help some, and we hope it will. Every
bcwist given to the work of such men as Billy Graham is like the
savor of salt to a world that sadly needs a savior. Just now
Graham is in Scotland, and his reception has been one that has
exceeded the greatest expectations. If Scotland is set on fire for
Christ, the fire could go all over the world.
The wonder about Billy Graham can be explained in only
one way. He Ls carrying the plain, unvarnished gospel, a savor
of light unto salvation. There have been dynamic speakers in
the world who have carried people off their feet by their elo-
quence and the fiery power of their personality. There is nothing
of that sort to Graham. His language is plain, for the under-
standing of all. Ajid he speaks no new thing, that his words
sued to build have been worn out.

wonder about the messages is their simplicity. And the Gospel of
Christ has always been so plain that a man, though a fool, could
not err therein. Graham says the world has been passing through
an era of self-sufficiency, a time when people thought they did
not need God. We have been erecting a tower of Babel, and
this may well be followed by a dispensation of God that would
allow man to destroy himself. The evangelist told a group
of notables in Glasgow that it is not possible for this genera-
