Tlx AimtVaa Pma A nrtattfm. Whole-hearted Christians Berea hat had much Gospel truth thlt year, and this week it ia coming; to the atudenta. When the Goapel ia preached to the young, tha chief thought ia consecration. The Lord says, "Coma and help Ma make this sinful world what It ought to be. Give up everything else, and aeek first thia kingdom of love and righteousness among oien." . This means making real sacrifices and taking up real crosses. It meana going where one can do moat good and not where there ia most money and tha aofteit Job. It meana being a great deal better thaa the average church member. There are a great many church members who are disappointed. They never really gave themselves to the Lord, and they do not And in religion what they hoped to find. And there are others ao blind that they are satisfied with themselves now, but will meet their, disappointment at tha judgment. Christ said, "Many will say unto Mo In that day, Lord, Lord, did wa not preach in Thy name, and by Thy name cast out demons, and do many mighty works T And then will I profess unto them, I never know you." Tha man or woman who Is truly born of the Spirit knows it and shows it by being like Jesus and tha Father in his warm, unaelflsh lova for all hia fellowmen. Not for those of his st alone, or for those who are attractive and lovely, ("Sinners also give to sinners, expecting to receive aa much again!") but love for the weak, the porverse, the unlovely. Tha old hymn baa it And he's an heir of Heaven who feels Ilia bosom glow with love. A man who seta out to save hia own soul may be aa selfish as the man who aeta out to make a fortune. The soul is not saved that way, but by forgetting self, trusting God, and Joining God in His campaign for the Kingdom of universal love. Thia is what the College bells mean when they ring out THE GLAD ENLISTMENT Thy message. Father, movee my heart In God's great kingdom I've a part: Well praise and serve and trust and love, In earth below and heaven above. Dr. Stockdale Inspires The evangelistic addresses now being delivered to the students of Berea College by Dr. Stockdale are the sort that stir the high est and best in human nature. Tha value of these addresses can not be measured by the number of people who are aeen to go forward at the invitations. Many others are going forward, but thy are not seen; many others are consciously entering upon the best search in life, but they are saying nothing about it Many communities are going to be better places in which to live in 1950 because Dr. Stockdale was in Bens in 1922. Dr. StockdaU ia not dogmatising, nor talking about going to heaven, but he is talking about the absolute possibilities of making contented hearts and healthy homea on earth. The students of Berea College have a peculiar interest in these addreasea because of the hard struggle that the speaker had to get an education. Dr. Stockdale waa the son of good Christian parents, but they were unable to give him a college? education. So like so many of the students of this College, he set out to attain ore for himself. He landed in college for the first time, away from home, with only $10. After other necessary expenses were- paid he had 2 left with which to pay hia board. He did all aorta of work on the campus and about the college, besides going out to little school houses now and then to do preaching. Ha now holds degrees from Tsylor University and Boston Uni versity. His first real oppointment was to a small church at Beverly, Massachusetts, for which he received $3 for two sermons, and it took 90 cents of that to pay his car fare. He was later given another appointment which paid $450 a year. Dr. Stock dale ia now the pastor of the First Congregational Church in Toledo, which has 1,600 members, and which spent $78,000 last year in its work. It supports seven missionsries in foreign and home fields. His career is an inspiration to every student of Berea College. ' CHRISTIAN CHURCH Bible School topic: "Elijah Taken Up Into Heaven."

"The Little Minister" WILL BK SHOWN AT THE VICTORY THEATRE Thjursday and Friday, Feb. 9-10th A Motion Picture Classic adapted from the ' novel by JAM1CS M. BARRIi:. It's just like the book, with nothing added or omitted. ; Who Was the Gypsy? SEE "THE LITTLE MINISTER" BAPTIST CHURCH SUPPER The First Baptist Church had Its church supper last Friday night In vitations had been given to all mem bers of the church and their families, also the converts of the recent meet ings'. .Attendance at the supper ran high, at least 600 platea being served. Brother Fox waa back with as and gsve us great sermon on loyalty. One of the great outstanding fea tures of the supper waa the food which our folks brought In enormous quantities. Another very welcome feature waa the fellowship. We all had a good time. Probably the brightest feature of it all was the fact that there waa one accession to the church for baptism. The church wishes to thank the College "for the use of theTabemac!e and Mr. Miller for hia help In get-, ting the building ready for us. We wish to thank the quartette that was with us, for their music. We are all still thinking of the Girls' Glee Club. Everyone in any way connected with the event seemed to have striven his hardest to make it a success, even the weather man conspiring with us. The supper, aa a whole, waa a real' benefit to the entire membership of, the church, in that it cemented us more closely together and helped us to go on to our work in a larger way. j uur crewas at cnurch on the Sundays , following the supper are the biggest 1 proof of its real worth. Every eerv-1 tee waa more largely attended than any regular service has ever been. Our work ia growing constantly. and the need for larger apace is acute. Wa hope, that we shall soon have a larger apace of our own which will include space for socials and get-1 together-meetings. FOR PUBLISHING REPORTS OF THE CITY COUNCIL In the last Citizen is a brief nara. graph concerning the Citr Council. containing an invitation to all ciU- sens to attend its meetings in order to know what it ia doinr and to ore. sent any matters upon which its ac tion is desired. Thia is well; but there are many people who are in terested in the proceeding! of the Council, and more perhapa who ought to be who cannot easily attend its meetings; and no one of course would like to attend all of it meetings. Vet all these people are not only .en titled to know. what ia beintr done all the time by those whom they have elected to do the city's business, but it is their duty to know it atitl to arive some attention to it Every tax payer, every voter, should know how the city's money ia being used, what Is being done to maintain and im prove the streets in each particular part of the town, what ia being done for the school children, for sanitation, for enforcement of law and order, for the protection and welfare of the people in all respects. For this purpose it seems to me that a full report of the procedings of the Council at each of ita aeasions should be published in the local newspaper. I have made this sugges tion to a number of citisena. aome of whom are members of the present Council, and it has alwaya met with hearty approval; and-1 now respect fully suggeetajto the Mayor and Coun cil that they provide for such publica tion in The Citizen. Geo, H. Felton THE COMMUNITY ENTERTAIN. MENT The community entertainment at the Public School on Friday and Sat urday evenings of last week was a success in every way. The two per formances netted about fifty dollars for the school lunch fund. ' The performance, which waa en tirely amateur, was voted aa well worth the price of admission. Tho Echo Club girls, coached by Mrs. Matheny of the Progress Club, gave a good representation of the univer sal incompatibility of the femnine nature in the play "Joint Owners in Spain," where two old women pre ferred to separate their habitation by a chalk line rather than endure each other's personality. The children of the lower grades acted aplendidly a little health play entitled, "Dr. Health Bottle," in which the slogan, "A Pint of Milk a Day," was sung and stated. Girla of the fifth and sixth grades presented a beautiful drill. On Sat urday night Dan Wintremute sang one number, which waa very much appreciated. The final number waa a black-face minstrel, in which the celebrities among the young men of Berea cover ed themselves with Glory? (That question mark ia intended to apply only to the word "glory" and was in serted without tho sanction of tb one who wrote tha article).

WHO PAYS? -Thrift Many young men who have trouble making both ends meet earn good salaries, but are unable to aaye a dollar. They are easy going1, big hearted men, always willing to pay the other fellow's share. Their gen erosity is so strongly developed that they spend their money as fast aa they make it They have never practiced thrift some day they will aee the error of their ways, but probably too late their opportunity will have gone.
