ONE OF THE STEEL BIGGEST DINOSAUR pieces of equipment used by Public CHAPLAINS' I

Works is this giant Bay City crane with its 60-foot boom, being:

operated here by T. H Hooker. At present;, the crane is being L CORNERIn

used,to unload freight cars of lime rock, sand. and.gravel which are

,4r used for station road building:, repairing and parking lot sufacing.
o the South Pacific jungles,

one of the men in our battalion .

: devised a method of. trapping -

s : 1 V Via, rz I monkeys. He prepared a leather

I V bag with an opening at the top
Just large enough to permit the

I' entrance of a monkey's paw. At

: ,4" the bottom of the bag, he placed

.. a couple of peanuts and then
.of nailed the bag to a limb of a tree.A .

i monkey trying to get tbe peanuts -

'k a.'f would place his paw inside
$) : the bag and grab the peanuts

Refusing to open his paw the

monkey could not get free from

s the bag and was thus trapped and

t :.. ": easily captured.
Sometimes we find people who

t. "" : miss' out on the great things of

.!"" 'f' life simply because they 'are holdIng 1- .

1 on to things that may be of

their hands and life are filled with

room for the rich blessings that
could be attained. In the wordsof

sr.r ,.,' the "Master of Life," "But ._a
seek ye first the Kingdom of God

you." ( Math, 6.33) ,
