lit Fiebiger Talks to Association 'Gospel of Jesus" Theme of Address Clear Lake—Doctor Judson E. Fiebiger, Grinnell, state superintendent of Congregational Christian churches, gave an inspirational address on the Gospel of Jesus and its meaning to the world at the fall meeting of the North Central Association of Congregational Christian churches at the local Congregational church Friday evening. Doctor Fiebiger described the gospel as a revelation of God, a song of hope to humanity, a promise of salvation, a judgment on society and the way men live and as a pattern, a way of life, a life of peace and service and of love that endures to the end. "Christian living," he said, "is a commitment in service to human need, to fellowship and to share. The functions of the church must not be neglected by Christians. The future of the world is in the ^ hands of those who are prepared. Therefore Christians should prepare to live according to the teachings of Jesus and carry on His work." Communion Service Held The address was followed by a Holy Communion service conducted by Doctor E. W. Day, local pastor. About 125 pastors, laymen and guests attended the all day sessions. Members of the Congregational Women's Fellowship served a luncheon and dinner in the dining room. At the dinner the Rev. Loyal Werner, Riceville, and the Rev. D. S. Bourne, Osage, new pastors in the association, were introduced and welcomed. Doctor Day sang for this program. Miss Mary Senn,' president of , the association Pilgrim Fellowship groups, and Bob Richards, treasurer, both of Mason City, spoke briefly of their experiences at Pilgrim Fellowship summer camps and retreats.

"The aim," he said, "is the development of Christian persons, and the;' goals are to study and practice] Christianity, to attend ,. church and work in it, to contribute to the• finances of the church and of P. F., to participate in activities, to enroll new members and to read the 'Iowa Pilgrim Log.' Speaks of P. F. "The modern youth has many physical and mental advantages * today," he said, "but these advantages bring' greater responsibilities." Mr. Blunt traced the history of the P. F. movement from its beginning in 1922 and showed that the P. F. has a part in the church, pledging $15,000 this year, practicing "Christ's Work Days," holding retreats and rallies and publishing a hymnal. Fred Wilts, Mason City, spoke on "The Church's Challenge to - the Layman" saying that Christian religion in action is what we want and showing how the laymen can keep up the church buildings, carry out projects and encourage en- Clear Lake Globe Gazette IK JOUR PAPER IS NOT DELIVERED BX 6:00 I>.

Car owners in three different price classes—all happy about the same thing. One of them drives a new Buick SPECIAL, which you see poking forth its new, bold-look forefront at the left of our picture. Another will tell you there's nothing like the SUPER'S "happy medium" of size and comfort, power and easy handling, style and standing. And if you're looking for prestige, where is your money going to buy so much as in that handsome 18-footer, the ROADMASTER, with its 150-hp performance and really royal bearing? But all these good folks get together on this: ^here's no ride quite so soft and cushiony as the Buick ride, whatever the size and series. There's no power quite so satisfyingly lively as Buick's high-compression, high-pressure Fireball power. Above all, there's no "buy" like a Buick—no car that gives you such a rich dollar's worth of smartness, handling, comfort and liveliness for every dollar you pay. So why not look the whole line over? Your Buick dealer has these grand travel-mates in a baker's dozen of different body types and sizes. Start your shopping in his showroom—and you'll find that even on delivery he has exactly what you want. YOUR KEY TO GREATER VAIUE ItUICJK n I one has all these features SiJJc-imoofh DYNAFIOW DRIVE* .
