STATE ELKS SUBSCRIPTION RATF1' TWO YEARS — $7.00 6 MONTHS — $2.50 1 YEAR — $4.00 LENT — History and Purpose Lent is the name given to this season of the Chris tian year when we turn our thoughts to the redemptive passion of Christ. The name of the Lenten period comes from the Anglo-Saxon word ‘lencten’ meaning ‘the spring.’ In duration it is the forty-day period preceding Easter. The observance of Lent goes back to the early Church. Our Lord’s death and resurrection came at the time of the Jewish Pass-over. John tells us that Christ was put to death on the very day and about the same hour when the Passover lamb was slain. Paul writes of the death of Christ as the Christian Passover sacrifice. Before the observance of Passover, the Jews had a day of preparation. Similarly, before the Christian ‘Pas cha’ there came to be observed a period of preparation and fasting. The fast was first celebrated for only one day, then three. Tertullian speaks of the practice of it as a forty hour fast from Good Friday to Easter morning. In the fourth century it was extended to cover forty days. The forty-day fast was determined largely by the fact that Jesus, Elijah and Moses had each fasted forty days. From the time of Nicaea (A. D. 325) the period is frequently mentioned as “a time of preparation of cate chumens for baptism, for the discipline of penitents and of spiritual retreat for Christians.” In the seventh cen tury four days were prefixed making the fast begin on Ash Wednesday and making forty fasting days, not in cluding Sundays. Lent does not necessarily mean that we take from our life anything, but that we make additions. If certain things are given up during Lent it is because we are seeking better, deeper, richer things to take their place. It is a session for special acts of charity, for giving up things which tend to draw' the individual away from God, for taking more time to deepen the spiritual life. We would do well in these days of uncertainty to observe Lent as it was intended to be observed.—From The Mississippi Methodist Advocate.

Yes, We All Talk ! EASTER SPEECH By Marcus H. Boulware QUESTION: Please discuss ideas for an Easter speech in your column. — Mrs. B. N. L. ANSWER: I suggest two approaches: (1) discuss the ar rest and three trials of Jesus in terms of Roman and Jewish laws; (2) point out, in a second speech, that the risen Christ appeared only to his disciples. Just as before the crucifixion he had refused to demonstrate the “sign” which would prove his divinity. The disciples ex perienced the resurrection ev ent as something utterly uni que, incomparable, and unfath omable. Stress that we today would do well also to renounce any attempt at explanation. The appearance of Jesus to the disciples after resurrection gave the awareness that their Lord was the everliving One and the Conqueror of death. Since so many requests have come in about my writ ing speeches, the writer will prepare 10-minute Easter speeches for seven dollars. State the type of occasion at which you will speak.
