TED LENIUS - Randalia Correspondent MRS. RALPH DICKINSON - Lima Correspondent JOIN AND WORK IN A CHURCH IN 1958 ! Always the New Year brings about a time of Resolution and Intention to do better in the years that are ahead. Every person, actually, feels that he or she must contribute more toward the spiritual institution with "white-wash" the Governor was "cleared" and Warden Thomas is now out of a job. Every thinking citizen should be seriously concerned about this smelly affair. A DEFFINFTE reason why so. The degree to which the lows do NOT apply to the "right people" and their offspring, is one of the first and foremost contributing factors behind the present day wave of juvenile delinbueney. If Fdrtor ind Publisher Kentucky has no new delinquents Sunday School Editor and r-umisner of ]q{c n . g nol becauge ncr "Happy" Governor didn't contribute his share to the underlying cause of juvenile delinquency. • • • • AIJtND CHURCH EVERY WEE PRAY EVERY DAY CHURCH SCHEDULE Grace Lutheran Church J.

Kerr: "God of our life, through all the circling years, we trust in Thee Lead us by Thy faith .... God of the coming years' through paths unknown, we follow Thee .... Our heart's true home when all the years have sped." We note in these words the significance of the God-centered life. Nationally, we place the destiny of the Republic in we wonder how much longer we God's hands as did Thomas Jefferson and the founders of the nation nearly two hundred years ago. Jefferson, yet, was not an evangelic Christian, as many might pretend to be, but he stated for the men of his day, the basic beliefs in God and their relationship with human freedom and human dignity. Jefferson said in effect that men who are obedient to God and who are submissive to His will are less likely UNDERTAKE VAST PROJECTS , . , ... , , f WITH HALF VAST IDEAS, to need the actual written law than those who are not.

Some days BUMPER CROP can keep out of the Fayette County Home. But when we have to "give up" and go, there will be that beautiful tiled men's room, "fit for a king", or more correctly speaking, fit for "visiting firemen". • • • • • Sign in an office, DO NOT Cross Design Still Popular on Doors For centuries the sign of the cross in the design of a front door has been a home-owners' tradition. It began as a means of obtaining divine protection for the household. Entrance doors incorporating the sign of the cross in their designs remain popular today. Doors of ponderosa pine are available with paneling outlining a tall, slim Latin cross, an X-shaped St. Andrews cross, a square Greek cross, a T-shaped Egyptian cross and the cross of Lorraine. A variety of ponderosa pine panel doors without the cross design are also available. Ponderosa pine can be painted to match the color scheme of the house or stained to retain the beauty of the grain. California Law Requires Year Guarantee on Roof California state law specifies that a home builder or rooflni contractor must guarantee a rool against leaks for a year aflei the house is occupied. Many builders and roofers in California use asphalt shingles because they provide a tight roof with years of trouble frer service. The soul of man is more completely free when in the realm of God than when without! American history itself is a spiritual movement but that is a story in itself. All too often we are apt to enjoy the fruits of democracy and freedom of a religion when we do not accept the roots of ft. Many people are more than delighted to go to their pastor and tell of grandfather, who was an "elder" or of so-and-so of his ancestry who was a "deacon" >— but they, themselves- do not share in the present responsibility of promoting the welfare of the church. But, ON THE OTHER HAND, THE CLERGY IS NOT IN THE PLACES OF THE "VILLAGE" — AS CHRIST HIMSELF MIGHT HAVE BEEN — TRYING TO BRING THOSE STRAY SHEEP INTO THE FOLD. ARE THEY? No person HAS to join the church. Not under temporal law. The principal reason is a matter of commitment to Jesus Christ I And what more claim does the self-righteous have to eternal salvation than the non- churchgoer who has never been approached about the matter by the complacent "in Christ." ??? We must look at the world in which we live. The freedom of religious and political discussion which were the dining table and the fireside were once the "prep schools" of democracy, but are they today? Is the home linked to the church by the family pew or the simple religious discussion in the home. We fear, we greatly fear, that the number of families in this description are becoming fewer and fewer. In his book. AMERICA'S SPIRITUAL RECOVERY, Dr. Edward L. R.

J OB had been in the depths of doubt, distressed by the intensity of his disasters and sufferings. Ho had not been helped, by the counsel of his friends. He was tempted by the whole situation to "curse God and die." But Job emerged from his, troubles and found faith. He did not find a solution to the problem of suffering; no one has. It, is still a great mystery that goes, unsolved. Christ went to Calvary, praying earnestly that He might be spared the cross. But He found in the hour of Gethsemane the faith that sustained. He could believe that through His sufferings and death He was fulfilling the will of His Father and His purpose of redemption. All this is greatly at variance' with the popular idea of doubt. The common notion is that we 1 should suppress it, that we should not allow questions to enter our minds concerning God and providence. - i But the book of Job and many i other parts of the Bible speak > differently. They suggest that | we should face the problems of j life earnestly and sincerely and, | if we do, we shall not come to a conventional belief that has, little reality, but that we shall come to real faith, v As Job comes to faith and j finds the approval of Jehovah, his triumph is contrasted with: the discomfort of his plausible. friends who hod tried to cheer him with weak and superficial words. In their shallow pretense of faith, they had rebuked him for his doubts. The wrath of ;God is kindled against them because they had not spoken of ;Him the thing that was right. We may well pray for a sustaining faith like Job's. We ! should seek it Instead of being satisfied with the plausible platitudes of those who have never cried to God out of the depths and found His answer. States, with few exceptions, must report their address to the Government during that period. Mi-. Wilson said that forms with which to make the report will be available at all Post Offices and offices of the Immigration and Naturalization Service during the month of January. Mr. Wilson urges all aliens to comply with the reporting requirements, as willful failure to do so may lead to serious consequences.

Tomorrow, he may use thoso hands, not only for play, but to work, to build for himself a future supported by his own efforts, his own self-sufficiency. This is the goal of modern rehabilitation, supported by your MARCH OP DIMES. No longer is it enough to. have cheated death. Lives must be given purpose and meaning. The dignity of human life must be restored, with freedom from total dependence upon others for the smallest of efforts. Of some 300,000 survivors of crippling polio alive today in the. United States, one in three could still benefit from new concepts developed through the MARCH OF DIMES. For them, the Salk vaccine came too late. They will need help for years to eome. Help them NOW.
