It ia not a aect defending a creed; on the contrary, we welcome to our. fellowship anyone, irrespective of creed, who recognises the place of spiritual force in human endeavor and wno earnestly desires to cooperate in the effort to make this force power in community living a well at in the personal life of the individual." The purpose of the Church aa formally adopted declares: "This Church ia based on the belief that religion ia an essential element in human life and that it reachea beyond theology, sects and creeds. The purpose of the Church is therefore to help its members widen and deepen their experience of religion, to uphold efforts to increase in the community a recognition of the worth and dignity of human life." The Berea-McKee Road It is a joy for The Citiien to publish an account of the vic tory of the Rercs-McKee road promoters. W. R. Reynolds, County Agent for Jackson county, end many of the enterprising cititena of MrKce and vicinity have worked faithfully on the project of opening up McKee to the outside world. Jackson county's part of the money was pledged before the quota of the State and Madison county had been pledged. And now Judge Goodlne and the citizens of Berea and other parts of the county havegone on record for the road. Thru the earnest cooperation of the citizens of Jackson and Madison counties, we may look forward to enjoying an automobile journey to McKee. Sometimes those of ns who have lived on automobile roads most of our lives have become hardened to the advantages they offer. We sometimes take it for granted that a good road belongs to us, and all we have to do is to ride upon it. But good roads thru out the United States have come thru hard work, thru faithfully pursuing the fight, and when once the road has been secured, money could not buy it from the citizens. Good roads make fur the comfort, prosperity, and happiness of the citizenry. But the road to McKee is not yet an actuality. It is only on paper, and unless the patriotism of every citizen is displayed in this matter the road may be lost yet. There are always a few cold-blooded, small-minded people who look with a sour countenance upon every progressive movement, who will say they are not interested in such a project. But they are greatly in the minority, and are so cheap that they usually say little or nothing about it openly. Berea has a forward-looking population, and we confidently believe that this new road will mean more to our vicinity than any single project that has come this way in recent years. SCHOOL AND COMMUNITY AMBULANCE ARRIVES The long-needed school and community ambulance arrived Monday. It is a beautiful and perfectly equipped car with Dodge motor. This ambulance has been made possible by the hard and persistent work of W. O. Trowse and the liberal contributions of the pecple of the town and College. Greensburg, Ky., May 2. 1922 Mr. Kcinhardt, The Citizen, Berea, Ky. Iear Sir: We are informed that the Henry Realty Co. will have a sale in your city. I am writing this to say that these people had two very success ful sales here in March and their purchasers were well pleased with the way they were treated by Mr. l(enry. We have heard no com plaint from anyone, and the people here believe they did all they adver tised to do. I believe these people are worthy of the confidence of the citizens of Berea. Respectfully, J. R. Ward. Greensburg, Ky. CLEANING UP TIME In spite of the. incessant efforts of the majority of our citizens and all of our city officials to make thia ' town the moKt desirable spot In Ken-! tucky, our police courts during the last few weeks have been engaged handling cases of flagrant violations I of law and visitors have complained! of being insulted on our streets. Berea may well be proud of her officers they are conscientious men,' and they are working hard to cure '. the ills in this town. They need' every ounce of support that it is' possible to give them. The Citizen is pledged to that end. Henceforth we are going to exert a special effort to secure for publica tion details of the police court pro ceedings, regardless of names or stations.

WHY THE EDITOR LEFT TOWN A country editor, who was full of hard cider, got a sale bill and a mar riage ceremony badly mixed. The de scription ran as follows: "William Smith, the only son of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Smith, was dis. posed of at auction, to Lucy Ander son, on my farm one mile east of this place, in the presence of seventy guests, including the following, to wit: 2 mules, 12 head of cattle, Rev. G. A. Jackson tied the nuptial knot, averaging 1200 pounds on the hoof. The beautiful home of the bride was tastefully decorated with 25 cream can 1 sulky rake, 1 set of double harness, nearly new, and just before the ceremony commenced Medels shon's inspiring wedding march was softly given by one cow, 5 years old, 1 Jersey cow carrying a bunch of flowers in her hand and looking charming in a gown of 1 light wag on, 6 boxes of apples, 2 stacks of hay, a grindstone, mouslin de soi, trimmed with about 100 bushels of spuds. The groom was a well-known and popular man and haa always stood well in society circles of 13 Berkshire hogs, while the bride is an accomplished teacher of a splendid drove of Poland Chinas, pedigrees furnit-hed if desired. Among the beautiful presents were: Sets of silver knives and forks, 1 spring har row, 1 wheelbarrow, and other arti cles too numerous to mention. The bridal couple left yesterday for an extended trip, 13 months on approved joint-notes otherwise cash. Lunch will be served at the sale. After they return Mr. and Mrs. Smith will go the housekeeping in a rosy home comer of Main and Dr. W. R. Jones, auctioneer." W. II. Sash. PARENT-TEACHERS' ASSOCIATION Parent-Teachers' meeting holds ita session at the Graded School build ing on Friday, May 12, 1922, 3:00 o' clock p. m. This is a business meeting, and all parents and teachers are respectfully urged to be present Mrs. Harris, president KIWANIS CLUBS OF NEIGH BORING TOWNS JOIN TO SHOW BEREA BUSINESS MEN A GOOD TIMB Banquet and Entertainment at Boone Tavern Berea is on the verge of a boom. There have been several indication! of it, not the least of which was the banquet and program which took place Tuesday evening, May 9, at Boone Tavern, under the auspices of the Kiwanis Clubs of Winchester and Ravenna, and a number of business men of Berea. For a long time it has been real ized that there ought to be some association organized here to bring the business men together in a more social and vital way than haa been possible without any organization. Several weeka ago the Shriners or ganized themselves into a club, but this did not meet the broader needs of the town. The Shriners, at the suggestion of two or three business men, joined in with the meeting which took place last Tuesday evening. Letters were sent to the Winches-1 ter and Ravenna Kiwanis Clubs, and without the slightest hesitation they agreed to come, paying their own ex- penses, and demonstrate the sort of: work they are doing. One hundred and twenty-five men and women were in attendance atj the Boone Tavern meeting. After j dinner, which was served amidst songs of revelry and good fellow ship, the' Hon. John D. FooU occu pied the position of master of care monies. A program of speeches and J music was presented, which lasted one hour and a half. Dr. W. B. Campbell made what might be termed the principal speech of the evening, in which he spoke of the benefits of the Kiwanis Club in meet ing the social, spiritual and physical needs of busy men. After the meeting some twenty one Berea men signed their names as being interested in the organisa tion of Kiwanis Club in Berea, and since that time many others have indicated their desire for such a club. BUILDING AND LOAN ASSOCIATION In the last week's issue of The C'.t izen we suggested the need of a Building and Loan Association in Berea, but witheld lengthy discussion on the subject We were not then thoroughly femiliar with the opera tion of such an organization nor the benefits derived therefrom. Since that homes thru the Building and Loan As sociations in that city, also with the banks and with several people who have been able to found their own homes thru the Buildin and Lean As svs'iatiiinn. Everyone was loud in his prsise of these institutions. Representatives from two leading banks in Paris said that the associa tions had served as feeders for the banks, that they encouraged a spirit of thrift and that many working people who, before the associations were organized, made obviously no attempt to save money, had caught the hnme-buildioz rpi'it and thi thrift idea and had built and paid for their own hmes and had sub stantial hank accounts to their cred it We also interviewed one man who a few years ago was paying out his life in the form of house rent, but now thru the operation of the Build ing and Loan Association is enjoy ing the comforts of his own home, paid for, and is putting by some thing for the future. Mr. Galloway, secretary of one of the associations in Paris, said that he would be glad to come to Berea without any expense to our people at any time and explain the workings of the Building and Loan Associa tion. The manner in which it func tions so as to pay reasonable divi dends to its stockholders and to af ford people without money a chance to build their own homes and pay for them without feeling any finan cial sacrifice. If you are interested in establish ing a Building and Loan Association for Berea, let us hear about it thru the columns of The Citizen. BEREA GOES TO SUNDAY SCHOOL 2009 Answered Roll Call Last Sunday Berea has always been hopeful concerning her Sunday School prob lems but last Sunday's attendance surpassed even the most sanguine ex pectations. It is doubtful if there was a nook or a comer anywhere in Berea which was not represented in one of the Sunday Schools here on "Go-to-Sunday-school Day." A great deal of credit for this fine showing is due the various Sunday-school superintendents and workers who have been incessantly on the job. Among the churches in town, the Raptist led with an attendance of Mil, the Union followed with 199, the Methodist had 107 and the Christian 102. The College Chapel came along with eleven hundred making a total of 2009 in Berea Sunday School last Sunday. REV. ARTHUR E. FISH IN BEREA Berea was favored on Saturday and Sunday by a visit from Rev. Arthur E. Fish, pastor of the Con gregational Church of Wauseon, O. He spoke to the students in the United Chapel on Saturday morning, preached at the Union Church on Sunday morning and at the College Chapel Sunday night Mr. Fish is a man with a message, and his ad dresses and sermons were much en joyed by students, faculty and citizens. EVIL TO BE DESTROYED It Is a strange record that every evil which should huve destroyed luankind has Itself been destroyed by munklnd. There seems to be something falsi In Immunity for an evil whlt-h succeeds In InvHtling It with menacing power. Humanity seems to be like those pliints which draw. insects Into their cups and then close upon them and destroy and consume them, says lieurborn Independ ent. A bud system of thought or ac tion takes hold of the world, draws multitudes of good people Into It and it certainly looks as if the whole world Is going to the devil. Hut wait after all these good people are misled and deceived, Ihey destroy the system. It seems to be predestined that evil shall be destroyed by what appears to be Its chief success. The long story of hu manity's eontcHi lth colossal evils seems to prove this. And certainly It is a strong hinds for thut buslc op timism which is fiilth. THE UNION CHURCH At the Sunday morning service Dr. C. Rexford Raymond will preach and the Communion service will be ob served. On Sunday night Ex-President Frost will continue his series of ser mons on "What Christians Ought to Know." The attendance last Sunday night was large and should increase as the series progresses. The prayer meeting on Thursday night will be a service preparatory to the Communion, led by Dr. Raymond. C. F. HILL DIES IN INDIANA Forest Hill, a former Berea boy aftid son of H. H. Hill, died sudden ly of heart failure at Scotsburg, Ind., Tuesday of last week. Funeral serv ices were held at that place Friday. II. II. Hill, father, and Mrs. Jennie Hoskins, sister of the decessed, at tended the funeral. Forest had been in Scotsburg 15 years and had many friends there. He was the manager of the telephone company at that place. He leaves a wife and one son 14 years old. I'r. Joseph A. Ituycroft. Princeton's director of physical education, bus come lo a ilcleuxe of the athletes of the 1'iist In ii n article In the Dally Prlncelonlun. Asked to compare the piesent-day athletes with those of the "golden 'UO's," the Princeton director bad this to say: "1 do not think that In any sHrt, such aa football, the average man of the present needs or possesses any greuter Intellect thaa the players of 20 years sgo. 1 plsyed foot ball myself 80 years ago and coached for several years after my undergrad uate days were over, and I can as sure you that I pondered as long and aa diligently over plays aa any cap tain or roach of the team In 1921. The athlete then had Just as quick wits as any uiun today." However, Doctor Kaycroft declared emphatically that many aiore young wen In the Twen tieth century engage actively In sports thaa was the case la other days. Hence be believes that the modern bey is stronger and healthier. PROHIBITION IN EARLY DAYS Virginia Passed a Law That Proved Far From Popular and Was toon Set Asids. They were bard riding, hard drink ing, hospltuhle snd gallant gentlemen, the lords of the manor In colonial days. Small "ilppling houses," prob ably mere drinking burs, for the re freshment of travelers, became so numerous thst Virginia passed her first prohibition laws limiting .each county to fine st the cosrt house snd one st a public landing or ferry. But this an cestor of the Volstead act was not pop ular and was quickly swept aside, says Paul WllsUch, In "Potomac landing." The Inns and coffee bouses were so at tractive with the convivial taprooms thst they became an embarrassment to the colonial government, for the clerks In the provincial onVes spent fsr more time tippling at bars than In recordlug deeds In the government offices. The Maryland law against profiteer ing In liquors sre Interesting. Among the charges fixed by the legislature were: "Itrandy, muluna and sherry, 10 shillings per gallon; canary. 12 shil lings; French, Rhenish.

Ml'NCY BROTHERS HAVE DIVERTABLE CAR . : This issue of The Cititen carries an advertisement showing a cut of the beautiful combination ten-pas. senger limousine and invalid car, re cently purchased by the Muncy Brothers of Berea and Richmond. It is a car that any city can well be proud of for its substantial beau ty as well as its usefulness. From the outside one would take it for a magnificent limousine, and nothing more, but a little inspection shows that it can be diverted from a limousine into an invalid car and back again in ten minutes. It is equipped with electric fan and floor heater, and the windows are raised and lowered mechanically without noise or disturbance. It is an at tractive and serviceable car. Tanlac is one medicine that does what they say it will do, Berea Drug Co. WORK IN THE NEW ADDITION PROGRESSING During the past week foundations for the four modern California bungalows in the new addition called "Dixie Highway Park" have been completed. A large force of carpen ters is now busily engaged in the construction of these houses which the company hopes to have under roof by Saturday night. May 13. We visited this new addition on Sunday afternoon, and there were many citizens of Berea there looking over thia property. The presence of these visitors seems to be a source of considerable pleasure to Mr. Henry, who was on the ground giving infor mation to all, as to the future plans for this new addition to Berea. Only a few years ago you could buy a lot on Jackson stret for $150. Today the same lot would sell for $1500. Why not buy some lots in the new adidtion? tf.
