w i r i 1 A Li ( 20 NEW YORK AGE Sat., March 21, 1953 , AT A Understanding Is Key To Living In Peate By REV. C. D. L. BRADSIIAW Minister, Berean Baptist Church . v. Chicago ' TEXT: Cain Knew His Wife - Genesis 4:17a. ' Since early childhood, we have heard discussions on this Scrip ture, la the seminary, university, at church on the street and and i n Bible classes, I have heard this problem discuss - ed. The questions asked were like these: Did Cain marry his sister? Were there not pre - Adamites Rev. Rradshaw from Cain , could choose a wife? Did not God make several first men whom he called Adam? Whom did Cain marry? The modern questions are like these. What nationality is his in - tended? Is she blonde or brunette? What education has she had? Where does she work? How much money does she make a week? In what social circle does she move? Does she wear "Mamie" bangs or spit - curls? CAIN'S WIFE Whoever Cain's wife was, the most salient fact to notice is, he knew her. We are not sure that he knew her family. Perhaps he did, and perhaps he did not. It does not matter whether or not she was blonde or brunette. Our beauticf ns now ran rhanpis the color of a woman's hair from week to week to match her clothes. What is important is this, that Cain took time to know her. He loved her enough to try to understand her. He spent his time with her. If men really knew their wives today, there would be fewer divorces. l We wonder how much Cain's Go To rvnuuii Refuge Temple J24TH ST. AND 7TH AVE BISHOP R. C. Uw,on. Th B.; D D.

Or did she know of the fatal quarrel between her husband and his brother which festered and seethed in Cain's mind and heart? KNOWING EACH OTHER This understanding and knowledge of our associates is very important to our welfare, not only our marital situation, but in business and school, and all other human relationships as well. We first must understand ourselves if would understand others, just we first should be friendly if would have friends. Knowing people is a great asset to anyone. these hurried days, we too often fail to know the members of our own families. Because we do not take time to know them, we drift further and further apart and lose contact until rudely awakened by the hand of death. NATIONS AND WAR If nations really knew each oth er, there would be no wars. Each country, each locality, each person has a valuable contribution to offer to civilization. It is man's lust for power, his greed or his avarice that causes him to strike his brother down in "Cainite" hatred. For, from one part of the world we have our great masterpieces of art, from another science, from still others, proficiency in animal husbandry and farming, from still others the splendid democratic way of life. YOU AND YOUR NEIGHBOR We are beginning to see, here and there, after many wars and rumors of wars, a glimmer of striving in some areas, for greater understanding between peoples. After all, most men wish only to be comfortable and happy in fara - ily and friends.' I am not so much concerned about where Cain got his wife, as am about where my neighbor Church .t FAITH p.m.; Evmlm worship p m.

Silently and thoughtfully, we reply, "Brother, I wonder if you do?" We are indeed happy and filled with "Joy unspeakable" wncn we remeber that there was a Hparl of a household who great knew , and knows His "Bride." He is Jesus, the Christ and Lord of the Universe. He knows His Bride, thej true church: He died for Her. "The Church's one foundation is Jesus Christ, her Lord; She is His new creation By water and the Word; From Heaven He came and sought Her To be His holy bride; With His own blood He bought her, And for her life He died." COflING OF THE LORD Our blessed Lord will be coming tp meet His bride and take her unto Himself. The beautiful story of His second coming runs throughout Scripture like a crimson cord through the weave of a gorgeous , first in Palestine and then in the cloth.

Minister, St. Paul Church, 341 West 132nd Street ; New York 27, N. Y. BOOK "The Golden Watca" by Albert Halper, although called a novel by its publisher, is really not a novel at all but a collection of short stories. They are simple, nostalgic stories of family life in Chicago around the turn of the century and the early years of the twen tieth century. Mr. Halper has cap - tured the warmth, the joys, and.tributed as follows fears of growing up in a large family. Dave, the next to the youngest son, the one who wanted to write, is the story - teller here. His father owns a grocery store; in fact, he owns several grocery stores (at different times) over the course of the years. Business is never too good and making ends meet with six children was no easy job. Most of the characters in "The Golden Watch" are relatives, chiefly uncles. Each acquires a surprising individuality in a few ppges. The book as a whole is not long, but somehow each person who appears in it is well defined. "The Golden Watch" brings to life a way of life that has largely disappeared. The large family, the small storekeeper and the simple pleasurers have been replaced to a great extent. Here they are revived in simple prose that is ideally suited to its subject. The drawings by Aaron Bohrod complement the text 'The Goldea Watch" by Albert Halper; Henry Holt and Company; 383 Madison ave.; New York City; 1953; $3.00. "The Happy People" The sub - title of this novel by Sara Jenkins, about a young min ister in Kinsman, Ga., is "T b e story of a preacher torn between seriously because is early in the book that his work will win out Stephen Elliott, minister, comes to Kinsman with his widowed sister and her yousg son; happy with a new charge, and a new parsonage in a thriving mill town. He soon discovers that he has been given the church because of Claire Winthrop, sister - in - law of the town and the church boss,' J. G. Kinsman. Claire was a col - ! lege sweetheart who bad jilted, Stephen because he bad nothing" io otter and would not give up the ministry. . . . I From the moment during his first sermon when be spies Claire j in a hat he loved her in some; years before, he knows that his Seelings are unchanged. It is only ifter much soul searching that he i resolves his problems. . On this primary level the novel has .little to recommend it. i There are a number of interesting sub - plots which might have been; expanded to add more interest' One is concerned with the Kinsman family, which is dominated by J.G., the mill owner. Their daughter is confused by the gap between ber own interests and those of her family. Another minor plot revolves around a young colored nurse who becomes a heroine during the flood. "The Happy People" has possibilities which are not fully realized. .Too often it is merely an over - sentimental story, centered around a man who ii a rather stereotyped character. "The Happy People" by Sara Jenkins, Thomas Y. CroweD. Company; 432 Fourth Avenue; New York !; 1953; $3.00. "Two Came By Sea "Two Came By Sea" poses the age - old question of civilization against a. primitive culture and docs it in an original way. The novel does not come off, it seems to me, because the characters do not come to life. Besides, all are too extreme; the two Frenchmen and the natives. The title refers to the French men who come to the South Sea island of Atea, one at governor, thet other as schoolmaster. Although they are very different met and .approach the islanders in different ways, each brings disaster with him. Pierre Lestrade. Mhe schoolmaster, looks to the is land as an escape, comes to love it and does not wish to change it i in the least. Alexandre Tissot, the 'governor, is. determined to bring new ideas to Atea and to accom plish something which will re I deem him from the oblivion to which be knows he has been sent. The fact that the two men dis like each other from their first meeting presages the trouble that is to come. A beautiful and un spoiled native girl, Maeva, proves another complicating factor. . .'Two Came By Sea" is excellent in conception but the unfolding of the plot is not as skillfully done. The author uses a melo dramatic icene to bring his situation to a climax. Atea and its people never seem quite real. Two Came By Sea" fif William i.

Allen, chairman, of the board of trustees of Wilberforce university, announced last week at the Founders' Week activities here that i total of $100,497.42 had been raised for the support of Wilberforce university for the first quarter of the year. The announcement climaxed the educational chatauqua of the Third Episcopal district of the AME church over which Bishop Allen presides. The third district which includes Ohio, western Pennsylvania, and West Virginia contri buted $30,000 of the total money. The rest of the money was dis - First district. 'Bishop D, Ward Nichols, $20,000; Fourth district. Bishop George W. Baber, $14,500; and the Fifth dis trict, Bishop D. Ormonde Walker, $30,000. The education department of the church contributed $2,500. Another $3,446.95 came from special efforts of the university student and faculty body. In addition to this money, Bis hop Walker contributed $4,500 on the retirement of the school debt; $3,000 for scholarships; and $12,000 for the support of Payne Theolo gical seminary. RECORD ATTENDANCE The chatauqua drew ministers and visitors to the campus from all over the Third district as well as from other parts of the country. The calendar of activities included the Founder's Day sermon by Dr. Charles L. Hill, president of Wil berforce; memorial services for the late Bishop John A. Gregg; a symposium by Dr. Hill and Dr Milton Wright of the faculty; a fellowship luncheon; an alumni program; a play by faculty members; and as the climax, the Third district rally. The Wilber force University choir under the direction of Relford Patterson fur nished music for many of the events. ALLEN OVATION Bishop Allen received an enthusiastic ovation for his leadership of the Third district and as chair man of the university board of trustees. An impromptu rally stag ed in the dining room of Shorter Hall brought renewed inspiration to the gathering, many of whom are alumni of the school. Among the trustees present were Mrs. Cora Jordan White of Colum bus, Ohio who is a prominent Bap - iisi lay leaner. Mrs. White is one of the most zealous supporters of BISHOP TO the school. "It's our school and we love it," she said. She is serving her second term as trustee 'ft P : V BISHOP ALLEN and has been a member of the board for six years. SYMPOSIUM During the symposium, Dr. Milton Wright posed the .question as to why AME schools have not come in for a share of grants from the great philanthropic foundations. Dr. Wright said that this was largely due to the principle of the church that its schools must operate in freedom independent of any restrictions. Dr. Hill emphasized the conjunction of high religion and intellectuality' as a guiding principle of education. Among those in attendance at the sessions were Mrs. Lucinda Kelley and Mrs. Clara Rice of Springfield, Ohio; Mrs. Exie W. Clement, Cincinnati, Ohio; Rev. F. H. Mason, presiding elder of the Columbus conference and Mrs. Mason; Revs.' D. D. Irvin and J, H. Mack, Cleveland; Charles Spi vey jr., Pittsburgh; B. M.
