Protestants Not Alert to Evangelism Half U.S. Unchurched, Lutheran Pastors Told The same duty to share the Gosel with the unchurched that was ,'irst enjoined upon the members of the Jerusalem congregation rests on Lutherans today, declared the Rev. Alfred L. Grewe, Sterling, 111., speaking to Lutheran pastors of North Iowa at a seminar meeting Friday evening. "Gold calls for consecraled laymen, not lame men!" Doctor Gk'ewe told his audience following the dinner at the Hotel Hanford. Nearly half the population of the United States does not belong to any church, the speaker pointed out. "These are the people whom we hope to reach through our great national programs of personal evangelism. And Ihe goal is ever before us: That men may know Christ today." 1% Arc Christians Statistics show that the church has not really been on the alert, continued Doctor Grewe. "There are only 8,500 missionaries in Africa, making each responsible for the spiritual welfare of almost 18,000 people. In all Asia there are only 13 Protestant missionaries for each million people. In Arabia, only 5 missionaries per million. "In the entire non - Christian world with a population of 1,400,000,000, the total Protestant missionary force numbers only 28,000 to 30,000. Less than 1 per cent of Ihe people arc adherents of the Christian faith. Only Beginning Made "Isn't it crystal clear that only a beginning has been made by the Lutheran church in sharing Christ with the world, that through Him people everywhere may be saved?" Doctor Grewc's address was the j closing activity on the 1-day seminar. The afternoon session included an address by the Rev. Otto A. F. Geiseman, Forest River, 111. Doclor Geiseman. spoke on "God Gives' Christ and His Church." The Rev. Marvin O. Lee, paslor of Central Lutheran church, was in charge of local arrangements. General theme of the seminar was "Tliat Men May Know Christ Today."

Ordinarily the road's employes are paid on the 2nd and 18th of each month but when such dates occurred on Sunday pay day was moved up to Saturday. Now that Saturday too is a holiday for office workers the Oct. 2 pay day, a Sunday, was advanced to Friday, Sept. 30. "Our September bank statements should look good," H. W. Frazee, passenger and freight agent for the railroad in Mason City, laconically commented. * •Mrs. L. A. Day of Mason City was interviewed on the ABC radio breakfast club Monday in Chicago.

Northrop Aircraft company, which was later sold to the Douglas Aircraft company. "They had been financed by William Randolph Hearst in the development of the company, which manufactured exclusively military aircraft for the United States government and South American countries, a metal type plane being one of those constructed. "After disposing of his piano interests, Jay located on an extensive Arizona ranch, but also maintained a home in Pacific Palisades near Los Angeles, despite the 650 miles to his ranch where he spent eonsiderabdle time." English credits Lester P. Barlow, former Clear Lake inventor and engineer "who attained "renown in 1940 for his liquid oxygen bomb and one time attached to the bombing division of the Glen L. Martin Aircraft company," with , the fact that his brother, Floyd Barlow, piloted the first airplane ( flown in Iowa in 1912. Biggest air event in this part of the state, however, was on Aug. 28, 1927, when Mason City dedicated an 80 acre airport with Col. Charles A. Lindbergh, recently back from his history making flight to Europe, as the chief attraction. The enrollment of 310 at Harding school this year has a rather extraordinary split in the count of boys and girls—155 girls and 155 boys, according to Henry Peii- dergraft, elementary school supervisor. Hit Jackpot Early Aviation "From its very inception interest in aviation and its vast possibilities was greater .by far among the mechanics and machinists of the towns in rural areas like Iowa than in the cities of the country," writes Emory H. English in the October number of Annals, Iowa state department of history magazine which he edits. Then English proceeds to point out in his article entitled, ''When ~owa Took to the Air." numerous nstances of the early trials, disappointments and successes at 'lying. One is the story of a Mason Cityan. "W. K. 'Ken' Jay built his own airplane in Mason City in 1909, thereby becoming known as one of Iowa's earliest aviation enthusiasts," English states. "His efforts to fly and later exploits there are recalled by the elder citizens of Mason City. He •emoved to Texas and in 1917 and 1918 was civilian instructor in the LJ. S. army aviation school at Dallas, after which he was associated with the Springfield Aircraft company at Springfield, Mass. "Returning to Texas for a time, he then removed to California and became associated with Fred Keeler, also a former Mason City man. They interested Lockheed and Northrop and organized the Globe-Gazette/ Photo DRIVERS AWARDED—Drivers of the Jacob E.

The drivers cover 15,000 miles a week and arc selling up an enviable safety record. "The self-employment program of the GI bill of rights hit, you might say, the jackpot when it granted Martin Yoseloff the means to employ himself as a writer," wrote Nancy Ladd in the book review section of last Sunday's New York Times. "For in his 2nd novel, 'The Girl in the Spike-He,eled Shoes,' Mr. Yoseloff has reaffirmed his earlier talent and produced a work that is something to sing about," she continued. , "Though ostensibly the story of a wayward 'girl, it is really the story of lonesomeness—lonesomeness that is a vacuum in which the girl drifts from one set of circumstances to another." The Times review, which ran on for more than a column with a picture of Yoseloff, is an example of the fine reception the former Mason Cityan has received with his latest literary effort. It ends with this paragraph of appraisal: "Like John Steinbeck in 'Tortilla Flat,' Martin Yoseloff writes with simplicity, with a lilt, with compassion and downright love of humanity. His novel is-a reading experience not to be missed." General Machine Shop and Welding Work CENTENNIAL TOOL & MACHINE CO. 120 First St., N. E.
