FOR THE EARTH IS THE LORD’S AHD THE FULLKESS THEREOF
By The Rev. Joseph R. Kennedy soil have left their scars upon the
sue than I received word that the
schedule had been changed and
then we really had confusion . . .
I hope the schedule we print this
week will be correct and final.
Oh, the woes of a baseball man-
ager. I had been trying for some
time to get a schedule in the
paper so parents would know when
when the games would be played.
After a meeting of managers I
finally got a schedule. No sooner
had it appeared in last week's is-
This week we salute the farmers
and ranchers who are improving
their land both for their own and
future generation’s benefit. The-
sound conservation program is a
must in this day and age. Drive
around and it won’t take long to
observe the fine work that has
been done in this county. From all
appearances we should soon have
our own Soil Conservation District
solely within Carson County. This
should even improve on what has
been an excellent program.
Speaking of baseball, I am anx-
ious to see the Pony League get
underway. Louis Grayson and his
helpers have laid out two dia-
monds just east of the Rotary
field and we understand practice
will start as soon as school is out.
Now that the danger of the
wheat rusting has passed everyone
could use a good, gentle rain. The
wheat has been holding up sur-
prisingly well considering how
dry it has been.

are? Try softball Friday night. I
have been feeling my 38 years
ever since a workout last Friday.

“ ~ ‘The earth is the Lord's and the
Minister, First Christian Church
The title of this article makes
three appearances in the Bible.
The first in Genesis, the second in
Psalms and the third in Corinth-
Certainly the deeper meaning is
that of Genesis: For it is here that
God’s earth is formed in its crea-
tion — given night and day in the
firmament above and on it — giv-
en the seasons , the nourishment
of the sun and the rain — the fish,
the fowl and the animals thereon
— and there placed the life of
plants . . . each capable of repro-
ducing itself by the miracle of life
in seed and gene. And then, hav-
ing prepared the setting of life—
from the earth He created man
and blew into him the breath of
heaven. “The Earth is the Lord’s
and the Fullness Thereof.’’ To
man he has given dominion over
it — the fis:h, the fowl, the animals
and the resources and food of
growing things, without which life
could not be 'sustained.
It was Joyce Kilmer who wrote
the poem so oft quoted: “Only God
can make a tree ...” The exclu-
siveness of God as Creator is only
stimulated in our minds by con-
sidering a tree . . . What is there
made that God did not make?
What do we take from out of the
earth—or from upon it, other than
what God. made?
This is the song of the Psalm —

looks like Mr. K. had some other
reason to blow off steam and just
used this incident as a smoke-

is the case) he certainly got that

And here is the text of the third
appearance: (found in I Corinth-
ians 10-26) “Let no one seek his
own good, but the good of his
neighbor. For, “the earth is the
Lord’s and the fullness thereof.”
It is given to us as stewards: for
our own life and for the life of
our neighbor . . . but it is always,
and ever shall be “The Lord’s”.
What we do with what has been
entrusted to us was the running
theme of Jesus’ preaching and
teaching — and for that matter
the N.T., and the Bible in its en-
tieity: The earth is one such pos-
session, not our’s but God’s, given
to us for a little while.
What is our stewardship of this
priceless heritage? To use it for
our own good or to regard it as
a priceless heritage, keeping it
safe, enriching it, and being mind-
ful that we will pass it along to
our children and our children’s
children? (Eccl. 1-4) “One gener-
ation passeth away and another
generation cometh; but the earth
I had thought that I might en-
title this article “Conversation on
Conservation” after reading some
facts supplied by the Soil Conser-
vation offices: “Listen to this.”:
(“Today, comprehensive surveys
of our soil resources reveal that
one-fifth of the original area of our
tillable land is now ruined for fur-
ther cultivation, and about one-
third of the present tillable land
is badly damaged by erosion. Mote
than one-half of the remainder is
subject to damage. On the aver-
age, we have lost one-third of the
top soil in the 100 to 200 years
since the land of America was
cleared or broken from the native
sod.”) It’s sobering to think of
what the next 100 to 200 years
could hold . . . even though the
problem of “surplus” is very much
with us today.
The article suggested that the
curse 'of Cain would be in order
if the present rate of ruined land
and the increasing population ran
true to their present course. Do
you remember the curse of Cain?
Following his displeasing steward-
ship to God, God levied a severe
punishment upon him: “When you
till the ground, it shall no longer
yield to you its strength; you shall
he a fugitive and wanderer on the
face of the earth.” And Cain, re-
alizing that this was the same as
a death sentence cried out, “My
punishment is greater than I can

Stops Itch—Relieves Pain
For the first time science has found
a new healing substance with the as-
tonishing ability to shrink hemor-
rhoids and to relieve pain —without
surgery. In case after case, while
gently relieving pain, actual reduc-
tion "(shrinkage) took place. Most
amazing of all —results were so thor-
ough that sufferers made astonishing
statements like “Piles have ceased to
be a problem!” The secret is a new
healing substance (Bio-Dyne®)-dis-
covery of a world-famous research
institute. This substance is now avail-
able in suppository or ointment form
called Preparation H®. At all drug
counters — money back guarantee.
land “where the ground is un-till-
able or has no strength left to pro-
duce”, it is not hard to under-
stand the need for good soil stew-
ardship. These scars are also on
the people, the homes they live in,
their schools and churches, their
dimmed hopes for the future.
When the land is gone the people
are on the way out ... a “Tobac-
co Road” story of seeking greener
pastures. How many people can
there be written into a Tobacco
Road story before it becomes a
tragedy beyond forbearance? And
,they are given to cry with Cain,
“It is more than we can bear.”
It was Theodore Roosevelt, a
President famous for his tenaci-
ous tongue and stamina . . . who
was also one of our most brilliant
Presidents; one who had the feel
of “the pulse’ of America. In his
concern for his people he was the
force that ignited the Program of
It was he who said, “The conser-
vation of our national resources
and their proper use constitute the
fundamental problem which under-
lies almost every other problem of
our national life.” Have you not
heard this said more simply stat-
ed time and again, “When things
are bad for the farmer, things will
be bad for everyone.” What should
happen if things really got bad .
if the bread-basket for a bigger
world . . . became smaller?”
It was Theodore Roosevelt also
who said, “When the soil is gone,
men must go, and the process does
not take long.”
A thing which William Jennings
Bryan said in a little different
way: “Burn down your cities and
they will rise again as if by magic.
But destroy our farms and the
grass will grow on the streets of
every city in the land.”
Let me be pessimistic a while
yet in seeing things as they are.
People and the soil are in many
ways one of the same, from the
earth we are made, to the earth
we are given, and what happens
on earth will follow us. There is- a
race here . . . there are many
horses in this race that we are
watching — a race which seems
to have at stake a world in ruin.
The lead horse by far at this point
in the running is Space Age. There
is a horse coming up called De-
terioration (of morals and man’s
intrinsic integrity) . . . and then
there’s a Dark Horse called Too
Many—But Not Enough. This is
from our perspective: At many

other stations in the watching
world there is another perspective,
Too Many and Not Enough is way
out in front.
You ought to see the film that
Nick Nichols is showing as part
of the CROP program and appeal
depicting the millions of under-
nourished and starving of the
world . . . pathetic and prophetic!
How many thousands have come
to be completely dependent upon
the compassion of those “that
have and to share.” And how very
meager our sharing has been!
It may seem remote to say that
the Dark Horse is coming up so
much faster than we think ... for
we have trouble seeing any further
'hen where we are concerned
- h‘eh, irc;.dently, is far from the
: “Let no one seek his own
good, but th6 good of his neighbor
—fo- the earth is the Lord’s and
the fullness thereof.”) In our near-*
aightedness we are often concern-
ed more deeply about the prob-
lem of our current surpluses than
we are about the world’s plight.
