paper man -of ability and will sue

The speaker said in part: The bold
est declaration that ever fell from lips

Christ when He said: "Upon this
rock will I build my church and the
rates of hell shall not prevail against
it." 7his statement was made by a
poor, despised Nazarene out in one
corner of the world surrounded by a
few fisher folk and peasants. All
history contradicted the assertion,
for Mesopotamia was a. heap of rub

the innumerable workers of the 20th
entury and of all the centuries co

The Christian school is one of the
pillars of this structure, which even
the gates of hell shall not prevail
igainst, for it stands for the develop

first. It is this that should be al
as foremost and uppermost. By
fiting men to be the companion of

This was President Harms' first
visit to Saluda and he has made for
imself a warm place in the affections
