'AEROPLANE BENDS' ' IS NOW CURABLE COLUMBUS (Ohio) Hprpmhpr PR ;The Mayo Clinic announces the discovery of a com plete preventive for aeroplane bends; a disease which at tacks pilots of interceptor planes, due to the speedy . ? drop of the outside air pressure to below that of the in ternal pressure, during rapid rises to 30,000 feet altitude. : , It is believed that the discovery will be of great.' value on the western front and in the North Sea afr op erations, permitting closer approaches at greater heights ? before detection.

World Achievement Ajanta [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury — 29 December 1939
World Achievement I Ajanta 1 Nothing is easier, when thinking of the achievements ot men, than to imagine that they all belong to modern times. This is not so. In days long past men achieved remarkable successes, and tho celebrated caves, hermitages, and halls ot Ajanta (or, more correctly, Ajuntha) ot Hyderabad, in India, are a striking example. We come some throe miles from the village to a wooded g ravine, a rugged, impressive spot. Here are about 30 caves | hollowed out of the south side of a precipice, some 35 feet i S above the bed of a torrent, some as much as 100 feet or more. | Among tho caves are dwellings and meeting halls. A path- | way or verandah with a roof supported by pillars brings us to the dwelling rooms, and beyond are dormitories. There is also a hall in which a Budda usually stands in a niche. j The meeting halls go back twice as far as the roclc dwell ings. Tho most spacious of them Is over 94 feet long and over 40 feet wide, and here, long ago, tho Buddhists...
CALL OF GOD High Example of Christ FELLOWSHIP [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Mercury — 29 December 1939
CALL OF GOD High Example of Christ FELLOWSHIP Christians are a 'called' people. The church is made up of a body of people called out from the world, those who have responded to the call of God: 'Come unto me all yo that lal our and are heavy . laden, and I will give you rest.' In preaching upon the topic of 'The Christian's Calling' at the Hamilton Seventh-day Adventist Church, Pas tor Salton opened his sermon with the first verse of Jude. The vocation of tho believer in Christ is so sacred, so serious, so solemn, such a sanctified experience, he said, that Paul exhorts all to 'walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called.' A HIGH CALLING Paul speaks of the Christian's voca tion as 'the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.' It is a 'high' calling because it holds up a high 'stand- ard of living,' the moral law, the Ten Commandments. James 2, verse 12. There is no code of morals nor sys tem of ethics, nor rule of conduct higher than this. A high 'example' is set before the Chr...
