Last year at this time I enjoyed
the acquaintance of a business man
Whose salary was $50,000 a year. I
looked upon him with a great deal
af admiration and respect for sev-
eral reasons. He earned what ho
has with hard work and know-how.
His employees, numbering above
ten thousand, call him Uncle Frank.
Ho lives in a small town and helps
a lot of people in a quiet way.
t- Last week somebody showed mo
a page of a pocket-size magazine
that Us pay had been
I; most people are _
la pay these days. What’s more,
tUe man’s pay-cut is big. It amounts
to more in a year than most men

my annua. salary
flam $50,000 to one dollar,” the
Ngntfl statement said, “1 have not
been receiving net anywhgfe near
MAMOa year for woridng.'"7^-r
Only $$00.96 was left for my use out
at my 1044 wages. . . . Why should
I permit the company to pay out
$50,000 a year to benefit me by only
■ Let me make haste'to say that t
am not sorry for Uncle Frank. He
will be all right; he has some other
money. I am net worried about his
employees either. The faithful work-
ers among them will be able to
retire in dignified comfort. My only
concern is over men who, next year
or the next, may hunt jobs and not
find them; jobs Uncle Frank would
like to offer but can't.

Here is another enlightening pas-
sage from his statement: ‘‘Perhaps
you wonder why my net realization
from wages has been so small. The
answer lies in the extremely high
income tax rates which apply to my
wages, added as they are to my oth-
er income, and to the fact that I
f ltist pay not only federal income
taxes but also state income taxes.”
This man is not the only big-com-
pany official in the country who has
cut a lordly income to less than 10
cents a month. Why do ‘hey do it?
Because their big salaries benefit
them so little and cost their firms
BO much. My young friend who
Rtarted last fall to work his way
through college, running a steam
dishwasher four hours a day, real-
ized more net from his salary, than
this $50,000 executive.
Who Is Injured?
Men who cut off big salaries have
other income. That’s why their tax
rates are so high. That’s why they
can afford to spurn a salary. But if
they must decline the proceeds of
their own invested earnings, one
thing is sure: They will not invest
further earnings to start new ven-
tures or expand old ones. Invest-
ments in business are noi safe, nev-
ar have been. Any investment is a

when they believe, to the best of
their judgment, that it will pay rea-
sonable returns. Now they arc sure
ef only one thing: Nearly every-
thing an investment earns will be

invest in new enterprises? No. Then
where will our returning service
■sen find work? Unless present tax
tews are changed soon, they will
And it on a huge W. P. A. to the dis-
grace of our free America.

God loves men and takes delight
In blearing them and prospering
them on their way. When He must
punish them, it is a source of grief
to His Father-heart.
That fact probably explains why
the period of the captivity of the
Jewish people is passed over in
silence in the historical accounts
of the Bible. We do know that
prophets were sent to minister to
them and to keep alive their hope
of restoration to their own land.
When the Jewish captives were
ready to return to their land, the
silence of sacred history is broken,
and we learn of their experiences
in rebuilding the temple and the
wall of Jerusalem from the books of
Ezra and Nehemiah.
Many and varied were the ob-
stacles, ^but in due time they were
surmounted, and by God’s help the
work was accomplished. Now the
time had come for a spiritual re-
vival, and God had His man and
His message ready for that hour.
Ezra, the scribe, was God’s
servant in bringing the Word of God
to the people. The elements of suc-
cess for any revival are found here.
I. An Open Book (8:1,2).
The Word of God is quick and
powerful and sharper than a two-
edged sword (Heb. 4:12). That
mighty weapon does not need any
apology or defense. It needs us'e.
Tire soldier in battle unsheaths his
sword or fires his gun. He does
not send pamphlets to his enemies
telling them what an effective weap-
on be has—he uses it and gets re-
There is a place for discussion aag

ticity and dependability of the Bible,
but if we make it a substitute for
using the Word, we are on the
Era brought out the law of God
and opened it to all the people. That
is what we need to do today. Open
up God’s Word and let it do its
- Tha Word must be heard as well
as preached. Good listeners are as
important as good preachers. The
open ear and the open heart com-
plete the ministry of the open Book.
Note the reverence of the people
fc. ^en th* Book wgs opened,
they stood up—s token of honor. We
do not worship the Bible, but we
should show far more reverence
toward it and its message than is
ordinarily the case. This is God’s
Wgrdj anj man should approach it
Note the spirit of worship in
verse 6. Be sure that any people
coining to God’s Word in that spirit
will receive a blessing. We shall
see to e moment how wonderfully
God met them, but first we shall
note an additional reason for the
splendid response of the people.
We have before us the open book
and an attentive and reverent
people. What more is needed?
III. An Intelligent Ministry (8:8,
There is nothing that any man
can add to God’s Word, but he can,
by the grace of God and the illumi-
nation of the Holy Spirit, be used in
opening up the meaning of the
That kind of an exposition of
Scripture is the very essence of
real preaching. Topical discussions
have their value. There is a place
for book reviews and the presenta-
tion of social problems. But the pul-
pit should be primarily and always
the place where God’s Word is ex-
Note that the law of God was
read "distinctly” (v. 7). How im-
portant! That calls for prepara-
tion and prayer. That precludes
the casual/selection of a Scripture
passage in the last minute before
Then observe that “they gavt* the
gens?, so tout Ihcv ur. ..sic/v'. ; :e
reading" (v. 8). It hat takes more
preparation and much prayer. The
teacher or preacher needs illumi-
nation so that, the truth may be
clearly understood and presented.
Everything was now ready for:
IV. A Spiritual Response (3 12;
Revival came—and what a re-
vival! Teais and laughter mingled.
There was sorrow because of sin,
rnd loy because of God’s forgive-
_iete There w'as both fasting and
feaettag. God was in their midst,
working through His Word as it
was given out by His messengers.
It makes one downright hungiv*
to read an account like this, hungry
for a similar manifestation in our
day of spiritual deadness. God is
giving this kind of revival here
and there where people are ready
to go'His way. The writer of th* e
notes has only recently been in such
revivals. Why not have them every-
where in our land? Yes, in your
♦own or city?
