DRIVE FOR UNIFORM DIVORCE LAWS: The 1939 Congress doubtless will be the scene of renewed activity in behalf of uniform divorce laws. Under the present system, each state has its own particular and peculiar statute. The state laws range from South Carolina’s, prohibiting divorce entirely, to Nevada’s which allows it for almost any or no reason on the completion of a forty-five day "residence period.” The “uniform” law being sponsored in Congress would permit divorce for five basic "causes.” No decree would be final until a full year has elapsed from the time the "interlocutory” decree was granted. Some proposed drafts of a uniform law vary in detail, but they all seem to follow this general pattern. The principal objection to the proposed bill—apart, of course, from its unbiblical standards for the marriage relationship—is that, if made a federal matter, the issuance and control of divorce may become a "po­ litical football,” like other vital issues be­ fore the Congress. Confusion and domestic chaos would result if Congress were, from year to year, to adjust drastically upward and downward the limitations and restric­ tions on the granting of divorce. It is argued also that ours is a large country, with sectional and cultural differences and standards, and that while today there is not enough “uniformity” in divorce laws, there is an equal danger in imposing too much "uniformity” by blanketing the whole na­ tion with one rigid, unvarying law. Despite manifest arguments against it, the drive for uniform divorce laws seems to have popular backing of public opinion, generally speaking. If the matter comes to a vote in the coming Congress, it should pass. However, there is grave doubt as to its constitutionality. Legal minds believe a constitutional amendment would be requi­ site to validate federal control of divorce. It is not probable that public opinion at this time is strong enough for the proposal to back a constitutional amendment, re­ quiring the concurrence of two-thirds of Congress and three-fourths of the state legislatures. WHERE ARE THE NINE? [Continued from page 366] other nine lepers robbed the heart of Jesus of the gratitude His miracle of healing de­ served. Often we rob our friends of joy and happiness simply because we forget to say "Thank you.” Only one out of ten gave thanks, and the proportion remains the same. Ingratitude! It is cruel. “Blow, blow thou winter wind* Thou art not so unkind— As man’s ingratitude!” Robert Bums, the Scottish bard, declared, "Man's inhumanity to man makes countless
