JUST FEW DOTS
By Zantha L. Rimpson There is an unfortunate ten J ncy in. human nature to treat with levity many questions most vitally affecting man's real happiness. This is the question of love, court ship and marriage questions which none could be more important, it is to be deeply regretted that men and women do not more carefully consider the wisdom of their course. Do not re flect whether they are guided by the light of calm sober sense or are leaving things to impulse. It has been wisely but sadly said that years are necessary to cement a friendship; but they are so falsely now that months and sometimes weeks and even days are sufficient to prepare for that holier state of matrimony. From false to public opinion or as a matter of convenience, or for the mere pur pose of securing a home and being sett led in life. Thousands enter into the most sacred of human relationship with no such feelings as will enable them to bear the burdens which it brings love, on the contrary, should use his eye to the fullest extent, in order that in days of courtship, no stumbling block may be left to become a torment after marriage until it is viewed in its true light. With that sober earnestness which thc subject demands, courtship will be nothing else than a grand game of hypocrisy, resulting in misery the most deplorable. True wisdom then will say to the young love, but love not blindly rem ember the true companion has to be sought for young persons require wise counselors. They should not trust too much to the impulse of the heart nor exterior. In the selection of a wife a pure loving heart and good commond sense are many times more valuable than personal beauty cr wealth. It is an error which has proved fatal to many young lives to marry one whom you consider your inferior in mind or body. The quiet reserved girl docs not always possess these qualifications. But any woman of noble principles, a warm heart and good common sense to guide her, can easily reach the standard Try to find one that you can reveal to her the sacred treasures of your mind which lie hidden from the careless gaze of others, and be assured of her sym pathy. Lacking these love too son r fades away, and only the duties of w,r' ried life remain. Its pleasures are all gene. What is wanted in both is a true companion. Not one who possesses wealth, not necessarily the possessor of a scholastic education, but one who has a pure warm heart and< good com mon sense.

Young LESSON FOR MAY 7, 1333 GREATNESS THROUGH SALRIFI jCIAL SERVICE (MARK 10:32-45) | Golden Text. AND IT CAME TO PASS, ' WHEN THE TIME WAS COME THAT l HE SHOULD BE RECEIVED UP, HE | STEADFASTLY SET HIS FACE TO | GO TO JERUSALEM. (LUKE 9:51). The way of life is so plain that “the wayfaring mart, though a fool need not err therein.” Jesus had no secrets—He told His . followers all tilings. But they were slow to understand (and So are we.) I It is the effort inspired by ambition 1 that leads to great achievement. The boy or girl without ambition is a “hope less case.” | Parents are largely responsible in • many cases for the failure in life of : their children because they did not en [ courage and inspire them to attempt 1 great things. | Jesus did not rebuke or condemn the ambition of Janies and John^l He only sought to turn it in the proper direction. Jesus sets sacrificial service as the standard of true greatness—a standerd that is universally attainable. NOTES ON THE TEXT Verse 32. Jesus did. not keep His dis ciples in ingorance as to what should befall Him. The disciples inspite of all that Jesus had told them previously, were still expecting Him t0 set up a powerful temporal kingdom. Verse 33. Jesus tells them again (hat “the son of man shall be delivered un to the chief priests, and unto the scrib es; and they shall condemn Him to death, and shall deliver Him to the Gentiles. Verse 34. Mock, scourge, spit upon, kill. Progressive expression of con tempt and hatred. Verse 35. Then came to Him the mo ther of Zebedee's children with her sons, worshipping him, and desiring a certain thing of him. Verse 33. She said unto him, grant that these my two sons may sit, the one on the right hand and the other on the left, in thy kingdom. Verse 37. (Thy right hand) (Thy left hand.) James and John were asking Jesus to give them the most important posi tions in the temporal kingdom they were confidently expecting him to es tablish. Verse 38. Jesus did not rebuke James and John for their request; but he did take advanta, e of thL. opportunity to correct their misunderstanding of what constitutes true greatness and to point out the path that leads to the noblest life. Verse 39. James and John thought that position would make them great, not realizing that it is the man that makes the place and not the place the man. Verse 40. High position in the King dom of Gcd is not arbitrarily conferred; it is for those, and only those, who merit it through high service. Verse 41. The other disciples were highly indignant because it seemed to them that James and John had taken ! an unfair advantage of them in trying to get Jesus to promise them in advance the Lest places in His kingdom, j Verse 42. Some people seem to think that greatness consists in the accident J of birth. But birth is not even a condi j tion of fame. t Verse 43. Whosoever will L-e great a mong you shall be your minister; and whosever of you will be the cniefest shall be servants of all. Verse 44. If you desire to be the great est man in your community, serve best. Verse 45. A ramson. A statement by Jesus Himself for the redemptive qual ity of His death. | IN H. B. A. OFFICE Prof. J. M. Hopkins, teacher of Shiio school located at Quitman, Miss, was in the H. B. A. office Saturday. Wc are always glad to have our visiting friends stop and look in on us. POPULARITY CONTEST !

Weston) On our last meeting night the Club received quite a few invitations to ap pear at different churches. Along with these invitations came a resignation. The resignation coming from none other than our own good and faithful reporter. Miss Canary N. Wilson. She is giving up her present responsibili ties, to be laden upon the weak should ers of one who knows not how to handle such a position. But a true Hughenite cannot readily refuse or shrink duty. So, here I am with my thimble ful> of ability to do my very’ best. We hated to accept Miss Wilson's re signation as reporter for she has rend ered such remarkable service and en, tertainment for our readers. The Club as a whole wishes to thank the out going reporter for her time and the unlimited amount of success gained through her. And I am asking her special bless ings and most heart felt sympathy for the incoming reporter. “Say not the struggle naught availeth The labor and the wounds are vain, The enemy’ faints not, nor faileth, And as things have been they’ remain ’. Have faith in me, and 1 11 not fail you. Don't be like the pessimist, one who looks out on the world with out hope, seeing gloom in everything and believ ing in the worst. The world has always laughed at the dreamers who made things come true. In every age there are those who laugh, and when the age comes in: and al ways it is true that when the world looks back it puts up statures to those who dreamed and laughs at those who lau'hed. Let them laugh who will, but as for "The Langston Hughenite?, Itt us believe. SPENT WEEKEND IN MERIDIAN Mr. Albert Brown of Em lie, Ala brmi. spent the w ekei d u ith his s ste-.
