Roads Into Kendrick KENDRICK GAZETTE Subscription Price $1.50 In Advance VOLUME 30. KENDRICK. LATAH COUNTY. IDAHO. FRIDAY. NOVEMBER 5. 1920 NUMBER 45 Bear Ridge Sunday School W. R. Johnson, representing the American Sunday School Union, in returning from Big Bear Ridge where he nas been the last few days, reports a splendid work being done by the Big Bear Ridge Union Sun day School which is being carried on by H. L. Ingle as superintendent. When organized last spring there were about forty members, while at this time the enrollment is over a hundred pupils of all ages, the school house being taxed to the very limit, so noticeable is the lack of adequate quarters that the people are thinking about building new quarters, howevefc the "thinking" has not as yet, taken on any definite form. The average of this school is very large, there being several classes, but the largest is that of the young people, taught by Mrs. H. I«. Ingle. A rather unique class, lor there are thirteen girls and thirteen boys enrolled. Their teacher promised them a social as soon as the class reached twenty-five mem bers, so she gave a Hallowe'en social at her home last Saturday evening. The home was lavishly decorated with Hallowe'en pictures, ghosts, candles, black cats, witches, real pumpkin faces, shock of corn, ash berries, pumpkin pie, cocoa, apples, nuts, — of course these last named were the refreshments. The guests were received by the ghost who gave them a spookie reception; the evening was given over to music, readings, ghost stories with the 'lights low, various fortune-telling contests, and ghost-like games in which all could participate. Then in the "wee sma hoors" of the .morning the young people crept noiselessly homeward with happy hearts and sleepy heads, but with the assurance that they had had the time of their young lives. Miss 'Claribel Ingle, of Clarkston, Wash., was one of the out of the com munity guests. Mr. W. R. Johnson, the general representative of the American Sunday School Union, with Lewis ton as headquarters, helped start the Bear Ridge Sunday School last June. He spent Saturday and Sun day up there, addressed the Sunday school in the morning, and then in the evening at the suggestion of some of the young people, helped organize a Christian Endeavor people, being present. Mr. Fred Hecht was elected president, Miss Cartwright, vice-president, Miss Johanna Hooker, secretary-trea surer, and three three-member com mittees: a membership, a program and a social committee. Following the organization and installation of officers Mr. Johnson gave his ad dress on "Secret of Success," in which he set forth some of the re quisites of a successful and happy life. Organized in 1817 as a co-operat ing agency of the various evan gelical churches, the American Sun day School Union, with headquart ers at Philadelphia, has constantly pursued the policy of ministering to the otherwise "unreached" of America until conditions made possible their care by establishéd churches. This Society is unde nominational in form, inter-de nominational in work, and denom national in results. Note some of the things done last year thru-out the United States: There were 235 missionaries in Ihe field, some serv ing only a part of the year; these men oragnized 840 new Sunday Schools with an enrollment of over 63,000 scholars, visited and aided 8,640 existing schools, delivered 18,449 sermons and addresses to rural audiences, visited 176,556 families in their homes, distributed 15,006 Bibles and Testaments, and over 7,000 Gospels of John, and dis tributed books, periodicals and Sun day school helps, especially adapted to rural life, nearly 2,000,000 copies. "We sometimes get the idea," says Mr. Johnson "that the church is losing ground. Last vear thirty eight churches of various denomina tions grew out ot the Union Schools, seventeen of these having Society, about sixty, mostjy j Republican Landslide It is estimated from the reports that are m that the Senate repub lican majority will reach ten and the House KXL This gives the re publicans a'large working margin in both branches.

Covintgon, superintendent of the Children's Home at Lewiston, visit ed Kamiah Tuesday in the interests of the home.

There will pro bably be room for several extra loads and any others who have wood to spare may bring it in that day. The car will he loaded partly at Kamiah and partly at Pardee. Mr. Covington said he had met with a very generous response from Kam iah people for the work of the home and was veiy appreciative of it.

Also seveial Sunday School chapels were built.

Besides the Big Bear Ridge Sun-i day school, Mr. Johnson has organ ized at Park, Big Bear Creek and West Cove. He now has some twenty-one schools which he has! started since coming to Idaho a, little over a year ago. These schools are distributed out thru the seven counties which comprise his field, There are other districts in Latah where he hopes to organize within the near future, among these being Little Bear Ridge. A Group Gathering (something! new) will be held on Big Bear Ridge in June, several Union Sun-} day schools and others going together for an all-day Sunday school program and basket dinner, and the group commissioners esti mate that over a thousand people will be there that day.
