REVIEWS WORK OF HIS DIOCESE WASHINGTON, May 17. — Ad dressing the 61st annual conven tion of the Episcopal Diocese of East Carolina here today and the 30th over which he has presided, Bishop Thomas C. Darst of Wil mington, reviewed the accomplish ments of the church during the year just past, the opportunities for greater service in the year ahead, and urged a “reconsecra tion of all our powers to the serv ice of God.” ‘Our soldiers and sailors and airmen, our sons and daughters who are representing us in this mighty struggle for the preserva tion of a decent world, must find God in the churches and in our lives when they come home,” he said. Bishop Darst voiced h i s deep and humble gratitude to the cler gy and people ‘for their kindness and tender solicitude during my long and trying illness,” and plac ed in the permanent records “my heartfelt thanks to my brother bishops, (Pennick, Gribbin. Jet*, and Littel'i), who so gladly and willingly came to my assistance.” He mentioned new churches es tablished, others soon to be built, still others repaired, and announc ed the d.ocesan debt had been dis charged. He spoke of the expand ed service of churches in military areas and the demands upon the clergy because of the inroads upon its rfnks for chaplains. nc UUUIIUCIIUCU tiic ouvata ui the Rev. W. R. Noe, who added many of the bishop’s duties to his regular work as executive secre tary, treasurer, secretary of the convention and editor of The Mis sion Herald, besides conducting regular services at several mis sions and churches. He praised the progress of Ne gro churches in the diocese and expressed confidence of greater progress in them. “There are dangerous, difficult ;and please God, glorious days ahead of us as Christians and a church,” Bishop Darst said. ‘We do not have to rebuild churches, but we do have to re vitalize congregations. We do have to light the fire ot zeal and warm our churches with the spirit of the living God in human hearts.” Tire future is not without grave perils, from the prosperity that has come in the wake of war, he added. His annual address closed with an earnest plea for the sound and right improvement of the oppor tunities that peace will bring. “At the close of this war.” he declared, ‘the United States will stand as the most powerful, the most influential and possibly, un less our leaders are very wise, the most feared nation in all the earth. The Church of the living God must play its fine, constructive part in seeing that the power of our na tion shall be beneficent and that its mighty influence shall be ex erted for the good of the world. There is truly a great day ahead for men who sense their responsibilities as sons of God, for men who believe that the program of Jesus is the only foundation on which we can build a decent world. “We are confident that victory will come to the Allied armies— we will rejoice and be glad some fine morning .when the news of peace flashes around the world, but the glad news will be of no avail unless we win the victory ■over all that hinders us from god ly union and soncord in the years that lie ahead. We can not live happily or according to the plan of God in a world dominated by fear and hate ‘Adjustments will have to be made by force of arms. The world will have to be policed until the bitterness engendered by war is over and rebellious men learn *he art of living in harmony with their neighbors across the border, but our vision and purpose as a church and a nation must go far beyond sanctions and compulsory bounda ries and enforced payment for grievous damages. Our vision must be the vision of a new world wherein righteous ness shall be perfectly at home— a world of men of one blood, heirs of a common heritage, united in a common task, brothers in spite of race or clime because the vis ion of Jesus has been realized in the world-wide acceptanc of the sovereignty of the God and Fa ther of us all.” --V missing WASHINGTON, May 17—UR— The Navy Department announced today that Sgt.

Says Long-Time Sufferer Who Tried Laxative Cereal! ,If you, too, are disappointed with pills and purgatives, be sure to read this unsolicited letter! “For several years I was afflicted with common constipation. I tried various remedies, but got only temporary relief. Several months ago, I started eating KELLOGG'S ALL-BRAN each morning, drinking water freely through the day. I have since never had the slightest trouble with constipation. My gratitude to KEL LOGG’S ALL-BRAN." Mr. H. M. Riley, 11 E. Division Street, Chicago, 111. Scientists say KELLOGG’S ALL-BRAN can really “get at” a common cause of constipation— lack of cufficient “cellulosic” ele ments in the diet — because it is one of Nature’s most effective sources of these elements! They work_ by helping the friendly colonic flora fluff up and prepare the colonic wastes for easy, nat ural elimination. KELLOGG’S ALL-BRAN is not a purgative. Doesn’t “sweep you out”! It’s a gentle-acting, “regulating” food. If you have constipation of this type, eat KELLOGG’S ALL BRAN or several ALL-BRAN muffins regularly. Drink plenty of water. See if you, too, don’t cheer its welcome relief!
