NEW LUTHERAN PASTOR
FOR ARGYLE CHURCH
Our Saviors Lutheran church of
Argyle has taken a big forward step
in this that it has called a pastor to
have charge of this congregation only.
The Argyle congregation was formerly
served by Rev. Haqson who resided
at Stephen and who served three other
congregations besides Argyle. This
arrangement was not satisfactory and
when Rev. Hanson resigned to accept
a call from Larimore, N. D about a
year ago, the Argyle congregation de
cided to try to go it alone. The big
gest difficulty was to find a good man
who was available. The congregation
has finally been successful. At a con
gregation meeting held about three
weeks ago it was unanimously decid
ed to call Rev. H. K. Narum of Faulk
ton, S. D. Rev. Narum has decided
to accept the call and will enter upon
his duties here this week. He will
preach at 11 a. m. next Sunday but
the regular installation services will
not be held until in June due to
fact that the district president, Rev.
Aastad of Detroit, Mini)., will not be
able to be here till at that time.
Rev. H. K. Narum is a young man.
