DR. WYCHE AUTHOR
OF BOOK ON BIBLE
Weil Known Dabney Physician Hrites
Treaties on "God, Science
And Tne B.ble”
Dr. Charles David Wyche. well
known physician of the Dabney sec
tion of the county, is the author of a
new book that has just come from the
presses of the Stratford Company, pub
lishers of Boston. Its sales price is
$2.50. The book is now in the Perry J
library, where It may be had by those \
interested in reading it.
A brief description of the book, as i
offered by the publishers, say:
“The purpose of me book is to har- ;
monize the truths of the Bible and 1
the truths of Science; to give a con- !
cise and clear description of the his- !
tory of the Bible and of modern bib
lical scholarship; to prove to be un- i
true our many superstitious notions of
what the Bible really is and our cre
dulous beliefs in some of the teachings
of the Bible; to prove to be false some
of the fundmental teachings of such
so-called sciences as theology, meta
physics and psychology. That Truth is
God’s ultimatum to man, and a know- !
ledge of Truth (what is real and hence
true! is just as Important for thu !
agnostic, atheist or infidel to know as
it is for the Jew and Gentile, Catholic
and Protestant prrest and clergy of
any religious sect."

FRIDAY, JANUARY 22, 1932
COLLEGE HEAD TO
PREACH ON SUNDAY
Dr. Gideon Humphreys, of
High Point, Speaks Three
Times Here
Rev. Gideon I. Humphreys. D. D.,
president of High Point College, is to
visit this section next Sunday and
preach in three different Methodist
Protestant churches in the city and
county, it was announced today by
Rev. L. W. Gerringer, pastor of the
First Methodist Protestant church of
Hendsrson. At 11 a. m. Dr. Humphreys
'WUI preach at the church in this city,
while at $ p. m. he will be at Rehoboth
church on the Granville charge, and
at 7 p. m. will preach at Spring Val
ley church on the Vance charge.
This is considered a rare privilege
for the- Meethodlst Protestants and
others who may hear Dr. Humphreys.
He is considered one of the outstand
ing preachers of the entire denomina
tion. For a number of years he was
chairman of the denomination’s Board
of Christian Education, and also ser
ved as president of the Maryland An
nual Conference for the limit of years
allowed. He has also filled other
places of responsibility in his own
conference and the general church.
At the time he was elected president
of High Point College, Dr. Humphey*
was pastor of the Methodist Protes
tant church in Salisbury, Md., rated as
one of the largest and most influential
churches in the conference. His
preaching ability is attested by the
fact that when the denomination cele
brated its one hundredth anniversary
in Baltimore in May, 1928, Dr. T. H.
Lewis, then president of the General
Conference, selected him to preach the
centennial sermon.
Friends of High Point College feel
that Dr. Humphreys has brought new
life and hope to that institution. He
has a most pleasing personality, and
his executive ability is recognized by
all who have been closely associated
with him, according to Rev. Mr. Ger
ringer, loca ipastor ,at whose invita
tion he is coming to Henderson and
this county. Rev. Mr. Gerringer is sec
retary of the college board of trustees.
It is anticipated that capacity con
gregations will hear Or. Humphreys
at all three churches he will visit in
this county next Sunday.
A Correction.
In the Roses 5-l U-25 Cent Store’s
advertisement in yesterday's Dispatch
there was an error in the price of two
Items. Genuine Ever Ready safety
razor with two blades and a large
tube of shaving cream, a 98c value,
should have been 39c instead of sc.
Curtain goods should have been 5c per
yard instead of 39c. These two prices
were transposed in composition. The
Dispatch regrets is error and glady
makes this correction.
