Will you allow mo space In the
columns of your good paper in which,
in a small way, to express to the boys
of the American Logion my apprecia
tion of tile work they have hoon and
are doing in our town'.'
Some days ago Harry H. ll uglis
came to mo and offered his ?ind the
services of tho Walhalla Division of
the Amreican Legion in the doing
of Hie much-needed work of white
washing all the trees, telephone and
electric light poles, saying that the
Legion wished to offer their s?rveos
for the good of the town, and that
Ihey would do the work if It would
he acceptable to Hie Mayor and Coun
cil, '"rills," said he, "is not doing
any very great thing, but we aro
anxious to help i ti the small things
as well as in tilt* greater things of
life. That is. and will he, the motto
of Ibo American Legion Service'- -
and if wo can render any service at
any time, command us."
This word "Service" is not a new
word by any means, and lo tho boys
of the American Legion it is not an
unknown quantity. They know what
sorviee is; they know how to serve,
for when called to the service of our
country a few years ago it was these
very boys who "made the world safe
for democracy."
Of course. Mr. Kditor. I at once
accepted the offer, and now that the
joh is almost dono I wish to Like this
opportunity, in tho name of the
Council and good people of Walhalla,
to thank you, one and nil. Hoys, lt
will always be a pleasure to me,
while I am acting in the capacity of
your executive, to consider with you
any problems that may come up. or
to take from you any suggestions for
the uplift or betterment of our town
and community. There are problems
to solve in the civic life of Wal
halla, and it will be a pleasure to
have you make any suggestions.
And in this connection 1 wish to
call (he attention, not only of tho
boys of the Americium L?gion, but
of tho ladies of the Civic League as
well, and to the Council and every
citizen of the town of Walhalla, to
tho necessity of a park for Walhalla
- some jilace where Ibo children and
tho people in general can resort for
a little rest and recreation. And it
is easily within our possibilities to
have a splendid playground In the
beautiful little city of Walhalla-if
wo will all pull together.
Let's PULL!

servation Commission. The fact that

Feeling the ueed of conserving the

there wero 173,595 persons received
Into the local Baptist churches by bap
tism during the past year, and a much
larger number will be sought during

Ono of the interesting action? of the
convention was tho decision to baok
up fully the Foreign Mission Board In

the new European territory of Spain,
Jugoslavia, Hungary, Roumania, the
Ukraine and Southern Russia. Dr. J.
H. Rushbrooke, of Ixmdon, Baptist
Commissioner for Europe, addressed
th? convention, telling how ho had dis
tributed the relief funds contributed
by Baptists for the needy families of
thone countries and h?w the giving of
this relief had opened wide the door
of mlsplonary opportunity.
Work on the older foreign fields
during the past year was unusually
successful, the board reporting re
ceipts of $2,404,988 for Hs missionary
operations and $278,000 for relief
work, a? well a? $100,000 worth ol
clothing; 6,998 baptisms on the for
eign fields; 187 of the 611 churches
.elf-supporting, with a total of 405 for

ing account of how she recovered her
strength, having realized that she was
actually losing her health:
"Health is the greatest thing in the
world, and when you feel that gradually
slipping away from you, you certainly sit
up and take notice. That is what I did
some time ago when 1 found myself in a
very nervous, run-down condition of
health. I was so tired and felt so lifeless
1 could hardly go at all.
"I was just no account for work. I
would get a bucket of waler and would
feel so weak I would have to set it down
before I felt like I could lift it to the shelf.
In this condition, of course, to do even
my housework was a task almost Im
possible to accomplish.
