Lions Lend Encouragement to Infant
Industry.
Mr. Hugh Harris, attending the
regular meeting of the Lions last
Tuesday called the attention of that
body of enterprising citizens to the
fact that Mr. Chas. Anderson and Mr.
Hugh Harris are conducting a small
industry in Union City which has
been making fine progress. Mr. Har
ris reported that with very little out
lay the factory, now located in the
Dobbins addition, has been making
from eighteen to twenty dozen
brooms aTday, using a ton of corn per
week, with very flattering Returns.
But, in order to buy supplies in car
lots and to take advantage of the
wholesale prices, it is desired to of
fer stock for sale in the enterprise
and to increase capacity and output.
A committee was therefore appointed
to assist in the work of increasing
capital and in the reorganization of
the enterprise.
The commercial committee was
named for this work.
Mr. C. E. Beck, president of the
Union City Loan and Savings Asso
ciation, made a statement of the
work of the association and of his ,
Eev. Hudgins' Baccalaureate Sermon
and Other Exercises.
It must have been a source of grat
ification not only to the Superin
tendent of the City Schools, Mr.
Ranck, but to the minister ,Rev. J.
L. Hudgins, who was formerly pastor
of the Cumberland Presbyterian
Church in Union City, and the entire
faculty and patrons and friends of the
City Schools to witness the general
attendance of so large a crowd as
that assembled last Sunday morning
at the Methodist Church for the oc
casion of the baccalaureate sermon
by Rev. Hudgins. ' Not since the days
of Annual Conference, probably, has
there been so large a crowd in the
church.
The members of the 1921-22 class,
U.C.H.S., were seated on the organ
platform fa'cing the audience and the
church was decorated with flowers
appropriate to the occasion.
Rev. Hudgins took his text as fol
lows: "Behold how great a matter
a little fire kindleth" James 3:5.
There are three general elements
of things material. One is fire, and
there is enough ignition in a single
match to destroy the world. Another
is, water, and a single drop may be
employed to explode all the combust
ible material in existence.
Then we have the element of hu
man life, and here the minister un
dertook to reveal the hand of God in
the work of creation. The soul is
, not a possession of man, but the soul
is man. And God, in his divine wis
dom, saw in universal creation the
development of civilization and the
expansion of the soul. Therefore man
is an instrument in the divine plans.
Man, with limited vision, was able
to see only the beginning of these
plans, but God saw the comple
tion of the work instituted, and
he saw also the glorification of man
and the upbuilding of the Spiritual
Kingdom.
The minister quoted the epochal
periods of the civilization of man
kind, beginning with Abraham and
proceeding with Joseph, the deliver
ance of his chosen people; then with
Moses, the lawgiver; further on with
Esther and Ruth, and then with the
great apostle Paul. Coming on down
he spoke of Martin Luther; and now
he gives us a man of the world, but
one who was directed by the hand of
God Christopher Columbus in the
discovery of the new world. Abra
ham Lincoln was used, in the eman
cipation of the world from slavery,
and Frances Willard in delivering the
human race from alcoholism.
This sermon was applied to the
class and in the work before them in
the general Christian civilization of
the world. There is only one civili
zation and that is Christian civiliza
tion. The sermon was listened to with
rapt attention and interest by the
large audience, and skepticism as
well as indifference bowed its head
in reverenae to the wisdom of the
minister's ,words.

plans for its operation. This stimu
lated the discussion of one of the
greatest enterprises Union City has
launched in some time, and the fact
that so many are interested certainly
presages great things for this asso
ciation. In another column is a no
