We Will Let Him In!
?And You?
ON E of tin* fiiu' Presbyterians of the South
has just written: "I notice your 'A Safe
and Sane Investment1 statement in the
church papers of March 17th.
"I see therein an opportunity to get into
'the 400 class,' so you can count on receiv
ing from me SI, 000 towards the S400.000
needed for the purchase of the Graham
Building.
A S this is a dignified, unselfish ruling elder
* in the Presbyterian Church, whose head
and heart are right, we are going to let him
into " The New 400."
" The 400" of the self-seeking, extravagant,
gaudy type make little appeal to those who
have the spirit of Him who "came not to be
ministered unto, but to minister."
We cordially invite others who have been blessed with this world's goods to enter the class
of " 1 he New 400" who are seeking to deal honestly with those who have spent their lives in serv
ing their generation by the will of C?od, and are now sick or old and feeble; and to provide for the
needy widows and orphans of those who have finished their course and have gone to be with
Him.
Mr. C. K. Graham offers to give $200,000 to the Endowment Fund of Ministerial Relief
on condition that the whole Church will add S400.000 to the fund by December, 1920.
He will turn over to the Executive Committee "The C.raham Building" in Jacksonville,
Morida, for $700,000 ? of which he will pay the $200,000 mentioned in the condition stated
above.
on can buy for the Church one square inch of office rental space for 7 cents; one square
foot for S10; one room for $2,030; one floor (25 rooms) for $50,750.
( ict into "The 400" to-day ? or invest now for the veterans of the cross.
We will not forsake them!
SEND AN OFFERING TO-DAY TO JOHN STITES, TREASURER, CARE LOUISVILLE TRUST CO.,
LOUISVILLE, KY.
