expense to the depositors. It ties
up to no plan of reopening the
banks. It is simply intended to
hurry up the pay-off by any prac
tical means. The usefulness of the
plan is shown by the fart that
until the Guardian Bank depositors
adopted it they got nowhere. Now
the money of the smaller deposit
ors seems likely to be paid off
very soon.
Ope of the difficulties of getting
YfTe depositors to attend to their
balances is, that many of them still
carry books of the old Peoples,
Wayne County, Peninsular, and
other banks, which were swallow

depositors now have their money
tied up in the First National.

"Three hundre dand eigthy-four
persns were X-Rayed during the
recent tubercular X-Ray clinic for
the chest, and only seven were
found with active tubercular germs

group would have us think.
Health is our most valuable
possession. Most diseases are due
to certain gemiß. Proper food and
rest help fight germs.

Avery forceful and vital mes
-1 sage waa delivered by Rev. Cole
man on laat Sunday morning to
which the cangregation listened
with much interest. Talking on the
subject: “The Worth of the
Church", he said, “While the
church has not been flawless in Us
application t human life, neverthe
less for its minor defects, there is
not sufficient reason to abolish it.
as its critics may claim. The real
service and worth of the church
has become somewhat obscure, be
: cause in most instances, Its major
mission, to bring to man the great
pesonalty of Jesus Chist for them
to follow, has been pushed aside
because of the money prblems of
thee hurch. Keeping the machinery
of the church going consumes too
much time. This secondary issue
has become the paramount issue.
While money is needed to run the
chuurch, there Is danger of too
much emphasis being put on it.
The church is no stronger than the
individuals that make It up. The
practical application of the teach
ings of Jesus Christ are not car
ried. out in our social life., because
of material objectves and lack of
personal responsibility to the pro
gram of the church. The prlloso
phy of Jesus Christ is the best
philosophy to live by an dlf carried
out would bring peace, happness
and Justce to human life."
