to be continued indefinitely as a
means of drawing people of all Chris
tian denominations, as well as the
public generally, to gether for prayer
services for divine guidance and as
sistance in the present national and
worldwide economic crisis. The idea is
somewhat of the nature of- that car
ried on during the World War, when
the people gathered together at re
gular intervals to pray for the cul
mination of the war.
A statement of the purpoee of the
prayer meetings was made, in which
It was explained that they will be

order, with a layman in the church

vices Monday afternoon. Next Mon
day the services will be held In the

A number of resolutions calling on
the farmers to cut their cash crops
this year, end to make an effort to
improve thb. soll of their farming land
were adopted at the meeting. The re
solutions follqpw:
1. That much of our cash crop land
be allowed' to “lay out” this year or
be grown in some legume for sofl Im
provement as our cash crops show a
surplus and do hot pay a profit.

due to the cheapness of the seed, that
these legumes be planted with corn,
either in hills or drills for soil Im

the above crops that farmers use

5. This organization solicits sup

keep more and better livestock. When
this is possible we wilt find our coun
