Appeals to -Fathers, Mothers Mrs. Bert Keith Declares ; School Crisis Here , Must Be Met Editor The Star: This is an S. O. S. call to every man and 1 woman of Hope to*tally tb the support of the*schdWs in this great crisis. The School Board cannot do It alone, neither can the teachers. The mothers and fathers must step into the breach with them. It is you and your children who are most vitally concerned. Certainly we are as resourceful.and self-reliant as our pioneer forefathers. They came into a wilderness and hewed out their homes and! schools and churches bare-handed. Again, after the war between the North and South we were without moriey or credit, and our county was in ruins. Our fathers and mothers had to find their way out by hard work and good management over many years^ Their blood runs in our veins. Their example inspires us. The Parent-Teacher association is the point of contact between the home and school, the clearing-house of ideas and wrokable plans. Tnke your place in the ranks and/we can down Debt, Doubt and Depression by persistent and united effort. MRS. BERT KEITH, Charman Membership Committee. Jan. 22, 1932 Hope, Ark.

Frank Lawson, re vivalist who is 'conducting a series of meetings through Sunday at First Presbyterian church. i •. , < . Dr. Lawson likened the state to : tHe I^ingdom .of Heaven. Every man and woman is a citizen of both, he said. We have the privileges that go along with citizenship in each—and at the same time we can't escape the duties ;hat accompany citizenship, he said. It is the duty of every citizen to stand up.for state and God, no matter what others around him are doing, the pastor declared. It is the duty of every citizen to be self-supporting, unless he wishes to confess that he is an incompetent, the pastor declared. Dr. Lawson regretted that in the course of his wide travels as an evan. gelist he found so i many tender churchmen who relished their personal feelings apparently more than .heir worship of God. He said this country needed more stamnia and courage to be the kind 1 of individual- sts from which America had sprung.
