Jesus Demands a Choice.
Lesson for February 19: Luke 19:
Golden Text: Joshua 24: 15.
Zacchaeus was a man up a tree
-because of his ill repute among
his own people as a tax collector
under the hated Romans who ruled
the country and for extortionate
demands he had made upon down-
trodden persons; second, in the
low estimation he placed upon him-
self, and because he had climbed
into a tree to ..ee Jesus -.hn he,
passed through Jericho. '
And Zaccaeus put Jesus up a
tree in the estimation of the peo-
ple-they murmured against Jesus
for going home with a publican.
When Jesus had come into the
home of the despised publican, he
brought such an awakening to the
man that he was soundly con-
iverted. For he was willing and
eager to make restitution to any
rhe had defrauded,. and to devote
half his 'goods to relieve the poor.
And Jesus declared that he came
to earth to save such as Zacchaeus
had been-one of the lost.
The Lord demands a choice of
himself that he may bring men
out of the dar'-ness of sin in which
they have groped. :A man told of
the dream he had had in the deliri-
um of double pneumonia he
thought he was on St. Charles
Avenue in New Orleans, in sight
of Tulane University. Though he
lived in the city and his home was
not far away, he did not know
the way to it. An approaching
Stranger, seeing he was in trou-
1ble, asked if he could be of service.
And the man replied, "Show me
the way to go home." Jesus de-
,mrands our surrender to him that

Because the household ropus
room frequently houses the furnace,
the demand has developed for fir-
naces with exterior jackets that are
as plorful and attractive as furni-
ture. For the purpose, industrial
finish engineers have developed spe-
eial finishes in striking colors which
resist heat, scratching and marring
and are easy to keep clean.

ABOUT OUR POSITION
Recently, through efforts of the City Com-
mission to impose a tax on the water and sewer
service of the city in order to construct an addi-
tion to the city hospital, an issue was created
where the sentiment of the community was
sharply divided, a segment of the community
feeling sincerely that the question of whether
the tax should be imposed should be submitted
to a referendum of the people, and another
group feeling as strongly that there was an im-
mediate need for. these additional facilities at
the hospital and a referendum would cause a
delay of several months. As a result of the com-
mission decision to enact the tax measure with-
out a referendum, recall petitions were circulat-
ed among the citizens of the community, and a
recall petition was presented to the City Com-
mission for the recall of your Editor, and was
subsequently withdrawn when your Editor
made a motion to reconsider the water and sew-
er tax, and attach a referendum to the ordinance.
At the meeting no mention was made that
any citizen could or would be subject to arrest
for signing any such petition. It is your Editor's
thought that the motives of each signer of this
petition was sincere. The subsequent articles,
editorially and on the front page of our paper,
caused many citizens to take offense to remarks
made by your editor. I am sure'that these per-
sons who took offense were conscientious in
feeling that they should be vindicated. If these
. articles offended anyone, your editor wishes to
apologise. Our community cannot continue to
progress unless we work together in harmony
for the things we sorely need for its develop-
ment and progress.
To this end we should discard our personal
prejudices and devote our efforts toward the
building of a community of which we can all
I wish to reiterate that I have no ill will
toward any person who signed the petition for
my recall because I feel that your motives were
'conscientious. I am sure that each of you felt
that your course of action was to the best in-
terest of the citizens of the community, just as
strongly as I felt that my action on the water
and sewer tax was to the best interest of our
community to provide adequate hospital facili-

this impression. For the facts are
that no action was ever taken on
the petition. The writer represent-
ing a large group of fine citizens
had been instructed ,by them to file
the petition fo recall if the com-
mission failed to attach a referen-
dum on the new utility tax. After
presenting the petition a motion
that this tax be first put to a vote
of the people before becoming a
law. Since my instructions were
rot to file the petition if this act-
ion was taken, it was my duty in
representing my clients to, with-
draw the petition without preju-
dice, which I did.
Therefore, the recall petition did
not "backfire," the good citizens
who signed it are not subject to
fine or arrest for having done so,
and the petition has never been
rejected. It was and still is a good
petition which meets all legal re-
quirements and must be honored
if and when presented.

my mind. I explained why I wanted
the statement. He refused, and
then I explained that I would have
to report such as I did understand.
Before the meeting on Tuesday
night I had known nothing of the
movement, and after the meeting
I knew only such as I could under-
si and from what I heard,
I wrote the story exactly as I
understood it as any other con-
-rientious reporter would have
none. Having now more under-
standing of the situation, I could
no doubt do a better job. Had Mr.
Wimberly been so kind as to en-
lighten me a hit further, or possib-
ly direct me to a source of en-
lghtenment, I could have given a
clearer picture in my news report.
Naturally, I am sorry if my re-
port was inaccurate, but not being
a lawyer, 'I simply had to rely on
my understanding of what I heard
from the City Commissioners and
Ahe City Attorney, as the subject
was discussed in open meeting.

idents are still in the county even
though they have. not returned their
The following is a list of names of
those persons who have not returend
