Saville Don't Let Your Skimmer Leak We 'have had on ,the office door for some time a slogan that was received ,from one of ~he feed companies. I't reads "Don't Let Your Skimmer Leak". Many peo- ple have commented on this slo- gan. The mmn reason for .fine corn ment~ being ~a~ they are not faro iliar wi~h the old cream separa- tor. This machine at one ~ime ~vas very common and was used to se- parate the cream from Che skim milk. The cream ~as c~nsldered the most important part of the milk and the farmer wanted ~to be sure ~o save all of the cream and ~hat one of i,t got over in the skCm milk. Some farmers would ~ave the skim milk once in a while and cheek to see if any cream came up on ~p. If some cream did ac- e .umulate, ~hey would adjust the machine ~ ge~ ~hwt cream. You may say, w~at does this slo gun have to do with today. There are ofiner ways for Vhe cream to g~ away and go down Che drain wi~h ,the skim milk. Your skivnmer may be leaking because you do not creep feed beef calves, because you do not keep l~roducbion rec- ords on your dairy herd, because you do not keep Woultry records, bemuse you do not furnish cover for farm machinery in the wln,ter. There are many other ways your skimmer may be leaking. Let us take a look at one or two of these possible leaks. Research work ~t W. Vs. Uni- versity has shown ~,at creep feed ing of bee~ calves has improved ,the average grade of feeder calves from good to choice, increasing the average weight ~he weining ~lme of steers ,by 83 lbs and heif- ers by 43 lb's. The average In- crease in returns oer calf over the 5 year period has been $8.23. This is a net gain because the ~eed costs ~'ave been included. You may 'be letting your slQmmer leak by providing poor storkge of gasoline on the farm. Evaporwtion loss can be as much as 10%. Poultry records will help you lo- cate leak's in fine poultry orofit. It may be your poultry flock did not pay off last year. Records will help you locate ,the 'problem. It might be low egg 'production. H~ gh mor- tality rate, feed waste, e~c. Re- cords will help ~o locate ~he leak. Why not ,take a look around fine farm and see if you are letting your skimmer leak. If so. now ~s the time to adjust the machine so you will save all of ,the cream. Income Tax Federal Income Tax returns for farmers are due not later than February 15. We still have on hand a small supply of the Farm- ers Tax Guide. A copy can be had for the msklng. The guide is very helpful in pre- paring ~he income tax return and social security report. 4-State Farmers Meeting Don'~ forget ~he 4-state farmers meeting at Hagerstown, Md. on Friday, January 23. The loc~tion is Franklin Court. The meeting be gins at 9:15 A. M. and will be over by 3:39 P. M. We *hope Jefferson County will have a good representation.

Devotional Reading: Colossians 1:15- 20. Right to Command Lesson fox January 25, 1959 THE Teachers' Union in Jesus' time was made up mostly of priests. Some of these were mere political hacks, but many of them belonged to the old aristocracy, with pedigrees running back for centuries. They were no better than mediocre teachers themselves, but they didn't like any one else mov- ing in to their preserves. So when Jesus came to Jerusa- lem, the big city, from up-country, and bega~ to teach in the very shadow of the great Temple, the Dr. Foreman authorit~s were aroused. He could teach in Galilee all he liked and they wouldn't interfere---much. But let him come to the priests' cap- ital city, where they were the ruling class, and they were determined he should line up as they told him-- or else . . . What that "or else" was we know too well. But first they tried to get him into trouble with his public. For Jesus had what actors and writers call a "public," people who heard him overt chance they had. $bow Your Lioeosel The first move the priests tried was the same kind of thing a police officer does to any shady salesman or careless driver. Show us your license! they said, in effect. If Jesus said, God gave me the right to teach, the priests would surely re- tort, What conceit! How could God authorize you except through us, God's representatives among his people ? Or if Jesus said that some man, any man, gave him the right to teach, the priests would lose no time in telling him that they were the offcial Teacher's License Bu- reau and had never given hin~ per- mission to speak. Either way, they figured, he would lose face with his public. Jesus' answer stunned them. It meant: You tell me about John the ~ist and I will tell ~u abo~ me. T~his was not off the subject, as we might think. Expressed more fully, what Jesu~ meant was: "Very- well, suppose I received my author- ity from John the BaptiSt, as some of you may think ? Where did he get his authority ? From Popular Consent? There used to be a man who had no degree but his college A.B. The members of his church called him "Doctor" all the same. He used to say that his degree had been con- ferred by vote of the people. More important matters than titles can be conferred, in our country, by vote of the people. The authority of a president or governor comes fron~ the people themselves. There is nothing essentially wrong about authority that comes from men at large. Indeed, unless the people consent, no man can wield author- ity. In one sense Jesus' authority came from the heart of the people. The common people heard him gladly, we are told. "This is our man and we love him. This is our man; he knows!" Unless a leader has something like that effect on people, he is a leader in name only. From Personal Force? But of course popular consent, popular enthusiasm, can be quite wrong. Look at Hitler in the height ~f his power. Every Nazi, millions of them, went screaming for him. He was Germany's "new Messiah." But that did no~ make him right. He was horribly wrong, in fact, for ~ll the cheering. There is another kind of author- [ty, which comes from within. The man who has it does not need to appeal to any one else, he does not need to produce a license, he needs no sponsors. Now Jesus had that kind of authority and every one of his friends and admirers felt it. We read that after his "sermon on the mount" the people were astonished because he taught as one having uthority, and not as the scribes. We know how the Scribes taught. they quoted authorities. J~u~ had lt. god? Highest and true~ authority is ~hat Which comes from God. Ac- .'ording to the fourth Gospel, Jesus tenied ~aytng anything ~t2tctly on ~s own' account. He ~poke God's vords, hl~ teaching were God's '~aching. "My teaching is not mine, ~ut his who sent me," he said (John hlS). Now every Christian in the vorid admits this. We all claim to )elieve that Christ's authority is livine. But do we act a~ if we be- |eyed It ?

ALL FOR THE CHURCH The Church is the greatest factor on earth for the building of character and good citizenship. It is a storehouse of spiritual values. Without a strong Church, neither democracy nor clvillzation can survive. There are four sound reasons why every person should attend services regularly and support the Church. They are: g|) For I~is own sake. (2) For his children's sake. {'3) For the sake of his community and nation. (4) For the sake of the Church itself, which needs his moral and material support.
