HILL, The Undaunted Pulpiteer, Faces The Issues GREAT CLEAN UP RALLY IS ON!! Second Anniversary Of Pastor Begins In October AMPLIFIER: “I see you all got here before I did. How long have you been waiting for me?” MR. SNOWDEN: “Yes, we came direct here from St. John Baptist Church, Ginter Park, whose pastor is Rev. J. M. Kemp. Big time over there Monday nigbt, October 6th, the great KING’S PAGEANT will be staged there. This wonderful play will be directed by Mr. C. H. Hardy and Mr. Walter Graves is manager The pastor, Rev. Kemp, and the good people at Saint John Baptist Church cordially invite everybody to witness this Great King’s Pageant.” AMPLIFIER: “O-yes, you went to Saint John Church this morning. I heard about that great Pageant I think I’ll go over and see it” MR. SNOWDEN: “Pardon me, Ampie—meet my wife, Mrs. Pauline T. Snowden.” AMPLIFIER: “I’m delighted to meet you, Mrs. Snowden; excuse for not rising.” MRS. SNOWDEN: “The pleasure is mine also, Mister Amplicitor. Why they say that you are some enter tainer.” AMPLIFIER: “Yes, and they say that you are some exaggerator. Te hee.” MR. SNOWDEN: “Ampie, ‘U-R’ really entertaining. We admire the wonderful way you tell about the services, held at various churches. Yea, you have a disposition to con sole those who are sad and despon dent The people of Richmond, espe cially the church-going class, should feel as proud of you as America is of George Washington, as France is of Napoleon Bonaparte, as Italy is of Christopher Columbus, and as England is of Alfred the Great.’’ AMPLIFIER: “Now, Sister Snow-; den, can you tell me why your hus band put on his magnifying glasses when he thought to take a peep at j me? Why, he makes me feel as sn.all as the eye of a flea, when he' mentions me with great historical: characters. I wish you (Snowden) ! had seen me thru your linear per-1 spective. A-hem.” BRO. SNOWDEN: “I-hi, I-hi; Am-1 pie, you make me laugh. So much | for that—now, let’s hear what you have to say about the SERVICES at I SECOND BAPTIST CHURCH, Byrd, Street, between First and Second Streets, Sunday, September 21, 1930. | We are listening.” AMPLIFIER: "Well, tne Sundayi School assembled at the usual hour.! The lesson was wonderful. Large number was present. Visitors and friends were numerous. Bro. M. B. Jones, the active, competent and wide-a-wake Superintendent, was on duty as usual. The S. S. 0. furnisht thrilling music. Second Baptist has one of the best, or rather the best, Sunday Schools in the Sta'e of Vir ginia. Their motto is: ‘All the Church in Sunday School, and All the Sunday School in the Church.' The pastor, Rev. Dr. Jos. T. Hill, was with them in Sunday School also.” SISTER SNOWDEN: “We would like to hear about the regular SERV ICE next” AMPLIFIER: “At 11:30, right on time, the pastor, Dr. Hill, ascended his rostrum. At the same time the choir took their places. Mr. Charles Bland, the organist, ably presided. The Dastor prayed the opening pray er; it was fervent and full of ear nestness.” BRO. SNOWDEN: “Why, it seems as tho he (Rev. Hill) always offers the morning-opening prayer. We wonder why?” AMPLIFIER: “Yes, he always prays the opening prayer. The pas tor feels that it is his duty to pray, plead and meditate to God for the people, who assemble at the Church to receive His word and blessings from on high, especially those who are less fortunate; yea, those who are unemployed, those who mix sand and lime, beat clay and mud, wash pots and pans, scrub floors, wash and iron, cook, clean, toil daily in the hot laundries, tobacco mills, and so on— all those who have to toil hard for meager living; the pastor, Dr. Hill, trusts and asks no one to offer the opening prayer; he himself prays this special prayer, asking God to bless * the flock; in fact, the people all over the country. Truly there is power in prayer. Esther interceded for her race, she herself could do very little, but she caused the King to reflect and save her people. Of course, Rev. Dr. Hill, the pastor, is not in a crisis like that in which Esther found her self, but he’s certainly in a place to pray for his people. Yes, he prays arduously for his people.” BRO. SNOWDEN: “I-C, that’s al right. now tell us about the Scrip ture Lesson.” AMPLIFIER: “The pastor read the 19th- chapter of Revelations reading from the 11th to the 16th verse. The audience paid strict attention to this reading. I guess about fifteen min utes were spent in spiritual singing, which all present seemed to have en joyed.” BRO. SNOWDEN: “I wish I had heard that singing. It is reported that they have an excellent choir. I’ll go far to hear good spiritual singing. Continue.” SISTER SNOWDEN: “My hubby is not alone, I’ll go far myself to hear good spiritual singing. And I am going to SECOND BAPTIST CHURCH next Sunday where I can hear their choir sing. Don’t let us drift too far from the subject. Pro ceed.” AMPLIFIER: “Bro W. S. Banks, the clerk, made the regular church announcements.” BRO. SNOWDEN: “Were there any on the sick list?” AMPLIFIER: “I’ll answer that question in a few minutes.” BRO. SNOWDEN: “What was Dr. Hill’s text and subject?” AMPLIFIER: “The pastor came forward and gave us the outgushing of his soul. Using for text, REV ELATIONS, 19:11-12-13. Please get your Bible and read it; it will be helpful to you. His subject was: ‘The Name Higher Over All.’ ” BRO. SNOWDEN: “That subject and text certainly sound interest ing to me. Not every minister preaches from the Book of Revela tions. We are listening.” AMPLIFIER: “Pastor Hill handled the text and subject with thought and ability. It was a masterpiece; it was logical, spiritual, uplifting, magnetic, convincing, reviving and instructive. His delivery was elo quent, dramatic, powerful and well prepared. Dr. Hill, with his intel lectual brush, painted many desira ble pictures. The spiritual waves were penetrating.” SISTER SNOWDEN: “I am cer tainly going to SECOND BAPTIST CHURCH and hear Dr. Hill. I hear so much about his preaching. They say that he preaches with peculiar freshness and practicality.” BRO. SNOWDEN: “O-yes, he can preach alright With Authority, Power and Spirit, the Doctor sways his audiences at will. Go on Am ple, I just had to say that much about him.” AMPLIFIER: “At the conclusion of this sermon, the Senior Choir sang: “All Hail the Power of Jesus Name.’ The congregation stood and joined in singing this hymn. Mem while the pastor extended an invita tion to the unsaved and to those liv ing in the city without church homes.” AMPLIFIER: “The officers took charge of the collection. The amount was liberal.” SISTER SNOWDEN: “Ampie what was you going to say about some distressed members?” AMPLIFIER: “Oh I was fixing to say that an after collection was raised for two distressed members of their church. This special collec tion was lifted by Mrs. Rosa E. Watson and others. The amount was $35.54.” BRO. SNOWDEN: “Who were the members in distress. Ah, you heard their names called; go on and tell us?” AMPLIFIER: “Now, lemme-C. O-I ’no . Sisters Francis Miller and Min nie Walker, were in distress.” BRO. SNOWDEN: “I think that was an excellent sum for an after col lection. By the way, they tell me that they have on at SECOND BAP TIST a GREAT CLEAN UP RAL LY for $15,000. Known as the Gid eon’s Band, something new. Let us join in and rally with them. It is on now, and will be until December 7, 1930.” SISTER SNOW’DEN: “Do you think they will RAISE that much MONEY; as hard as times are? Gee mun-Christ-mas.” AMPLIFIER: “Why certainly; Sec ond Baptist Church can do anything she wants to do. That’s no money for Second Baptist Church to raise. I’ll tell you more about this Great Clean Up Rally the next time you call here.” BRO. SNOWDEN: “Were there many visitors present; Name them?” AMPLIFIER: “Yes, there were many visitors and friends present. Too numerous to mention.” BRO. SNOWDEN: “I think it is near time for the pastor, Dr. Hill’s SECOND ANNIVERSARY. Are they planning to have it this year?” AMPLIFIER: “Certainly, the Pas tor’s SECOND ANNIVERSARY be gins Monday night, after the second Sunday in October, ..930, (Mondaj night, October 13th). There will be preaching and good singing each night; infact, the program will be quite interesting each night. You will do well to attend these Anni versary Services every night I think it will mark Rev. Dr. Jos. T. Hill’s Second Cycle at SECOND BAP TIST CHURCH of smooth-sailing up on a Peaceful Sea. As a Shepherd, the Church loves and honors him.” SISTER SNOWDEN: “What was the general collection for the day?” ""AMPLIFIER: “I am unable to say, but it was very close around TWO HUNDRED DOLLARS. They give at SECOND BAPTIST CHURCH, and they do it willingly.” SISTER SNOWDEN: “Ampie, tell us about that great SURPRISE they led upon Deacon Lewis R. Booker, Friday night, September 19th?” AMPLIFIER: “On Friday night, September 19th, the members of BRO. MULLIN: “Ting, Ting, Ting, Ting, Ting.” AMPLIFIER: “Bro. Snowden, you all come back next week. Bro. Os car Mullin, is at the door. He came to tell me that Brother J. W. Baylor, of Sixth Mount Zion Baptist Church, has just passed away. He is a deacon of that Church. I must go on out there now. Be sure to come back next week. I’ll be glad to tell you about that surprise party, and deacon Booker, his new bride, and so on. Good-day to you both.” “Strictly Dishonorable,” First of Season, to Be Presented Next Week Richmond’s first spoken drama of the season will be seen a the Lyric theatre Thursday, Friday and Satur day, Oct. 2, 3, and 4, when Brook Pemberton’s brilliant comedy hit, -Strictly Dishonorable,” which is now in its second year at the Avon the atre in New York. This play has been awarded many of the most dis tinguished honors given to the work of any American or European play wright of recent years. I thas been unanimously voted by all Gotham critics as “one of the year’s ten best plays” in the annual selection by Manhattan reviewers. Recently it was awarded the Magru prize as being “the play that pro vided the greatest entertainment val ue of any attraction during the year.” The play, incidentally, is the first to be sent out under the new ment in ly Erlanger management in New York. A Southern tour has been arrang ed to determine whether or not audi ences are eager for road attratcions, and “Strictly Dishonorable” was se lected as a fair test because of its tremendous vogue wherever it has been given. The story characterizes the phu anderings of a bachelor opera singer with an innocent, but love curious maid of a provincial Mississippi town after she has deserted her home town with a visiting New Yorker and has squabbled with him over the pros pec of having to live in New Jersey. All ends well, for the opera singer turns ou tto be a real man in the end. The play is to be given here by a specially selected cast, chosen and directed in New York by Brock Pem berton, the producer and his co-di rector, Antoinette Perry. The cast will be headed by Elizabeth Love and Caesar Romeo. Others are Willard Dashiell, Rudolph Badaloni, Joseph McCallion, R. B. Williams, Leo Leone and EEdward Hartford.

DOUGLAS FAIRBANKS, Jr., in “The Way of All Men” at the National next week. ■ ■ ■ —Q “The Way Of All Men” “The Way of All Men” which comes to the National Theathre next Monday, for a one week en gagement is a most daring docu ment of humanity, in which is painted a battle of life in strokes shorn of shame. It deals with a boy who stole a first kiss, then was drawn into the maelstrom of life; a cafe owner and political boss who uses his power for selfish gain; with a Wall Street money grabber who forgot about everything else in his fight for wealth; it deals with a preacher who lost his own soul trying to save others; and a fifth character, a human derelict, homeless, harmless, always ready to give his last dime for a drink Five colorful, powerful charac tex-s. In “The Way of All Men” you will see their stories woven into the strongest drama that has ever been presented on the screen. It is a story that challenges all humanity. A stoi'y that will open the eyes of every man and woman who sees it. And a story that will give the younger gen eration as great a lesson as life itself. All because it is human drama in its strongest form— and one of the strangest stories ever told. A story of what happens when fear turns hate into under standing—when passionate emo tions turn to love When these five entirely differ ent types of people—representa tive of the mass of humanity— come in contact with a girl’s great faith in the one who loves—there is bound to be di'ama of the inter esting kind. When they are all confronted with inevitable death in the great Mississippi flood, we find what these characters are really made of. To attempt to guess the outcome is to find you are all wrong when you see this powerful story. And for us to di vulge the outcome would deprive you of the greatest thrill in all your picture-going experience. The climax is so surprising that we suggest you keep the story a secret after seeing it. Let the ethers be stirred by this emo tional document the same as you will be. “The way of all Men” is easily the outstanding drama of the mo vie season and has one of the greatest casts ever assembled in one picture.

Morrisville, N. C.—(CNS)—Ray mond Medlin, a young Negro lad charged with the larceny of three 2ggs , had his case nolle prossed when he met the evidence against him with .he declaration “we have chickens .vhich lay eggs too." The lad was bound over by a Mor risville magistrate two weeks ago, charged with larceny of the eggs from C. F. Maynard, postmaster of Momsville.
