" POPPY DAY New »W»e« on America's roll pf honored dea( l 8 lve * e ^ meaning to the memorial poppy this year, Mrs. K. C. Bellows, Poppy Day chairman of the local American Legion Auxiliary Unit, pointed out as she worked on fift»l arrangements tor the, distribution ol the little red flowers Saturday. Tlj* custom of wearing poppies £rlbut,e to th* gpajl gprawf up Ja the yulted 8tute», yaj tWPir*4 by Plslte, wfttefe "In Flanders' Fields the popples blow, Between the crosses, row on row—." Poppies were first worn in America in New York City, on November 10, 1918, the day before She Armistice. Mrs. Bellows further stated: "They spring from the blood and tears that are the price of victory —the price of freedom In this world of conquest and oppression. Again and again, Americans have had to pay this price to win and maintain their existence as a free nation. When we wear the poppy this year we will be showing that we are not shrinking from paying that great price once more in order that we may pass on to Americans to come the heritage of a free America. "As we honor those who give their lives, we should think, too, of those who sacrifice health and strength,.and of the families left In need because a father or sou has served his country. They arc still within the reach of our help. Let us be generous in our contributions for the poppies. Every penny of the money given goes to support the work the American Legion and the Auxiliary are doing for the disabled and dependent families of the First World War and of the present conflict." no date can be found on it.

Let us discuss briefly each of the six parts of this spiritual defensive ! equipment, which is describe*! ap- ' cording 0 the armour of a typical Roman soldier in Bible times; as given in the sixth chapter of BpbV- sten», verses 14 to 17. First "Stand having y°"" lotos gjjrj with truth." POW ?»sy it i# la o«r present times tor Chrises to be swayed from the truth, §8,1*0 bepui twisting the truth with, ive, aud te etlll continues tbjg pra,c- tlce with all mankind. Satan misdated scripture t& Jeaufe but our Sa^i defeated Ij&B iMfe of war, tie ' means untrouthful war news that is given us by 6ttr ettemles to trick us. It was through untruthful means that Hitler deceived the Italian lender, Mussolini until he became greatly discouraged when he realized how little of the truth he was renlly following. Oh, let us have our "Loins girt about with truth, constantly." Second, "Having on the breast plate of righteousness". If our world enemies today, would all put on the breast plate of righteousness the war would ebon close. For righteousness means purity, holiness and God's divine love within our hearts. If we are righteous we cannot hate any one. We will even forgive and love our enemies, as Christ's great example upon the Cross when He said, "Father forgive them for they know not what they do." The breast plate ot righteousness is a precious Jewey to all Christian soldiers today in these dark times of world strife and hatred. Third, "Your feet shod with tlic preparation of the gospel of psace." When Isaiah prophecied the coming of our Prince of Peace on earth lie said, "How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that brlngeth good tidings, that pub- lisheth peace,, that brlngeth good tidings of good that published Salvation, that salth unto Zlon, Thy God reigneth." These very words are startling today, when across the seas, In a war-torn country, many feet are being bathed In the life-blood of their fellowmen. Yet, our Prince of Peace still lives to day, and still offers us tho torch of Christian Evangelism, that brings us Everlasting peace. Fourth "The shield of Faith, wherewith ye shall be able to cjuench all the fiery darts of the wicked." This is a far more Important piece of ******* HURRY! HURRY! Last Chance For A Free Trip To Hollywood And $100 Defense Bond our gospel arrtlotir than any of us realize. For SatOn constantly; shoots darts at Christians, darts of unbelief, discouragement, and sorrow of all kinds. But Ood promises us that "Faith will quench and conquer all of these fiery darts of the wicked." But we raise the question, "What Is Faith?" \^e answer with scripture, "Faith la the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things unseen." In times of great sorrow and suffering, victory can always be won, If faith can be kept alive. When an individual or nation loses their faith, they are defeated. When Christians lose their faith in God, they are lost in utter darkness. "Whatsoever is not of Faith is sin," it is the faith in America, her loyally; her efficiency and her soldiers, that is winning many a battle today across the seas. "Faith is the victory, that overcomes the world." • Fifth. The helmet of Salvation, How wonderful it is to have our iteutta covered and protected wilh salvation's glory. It la a beautiful truth, how the blood of Jesus Christ washes away our fins and iniikes our hearts pure again. It is this personal experience with a living Ood, who comes Into our hearts to abide with us,' that gives us a victorious life for world service. This Is quite a contrast to a self-centered life demanding world demonion. Sixth. "The Sword of the Spirit which Is the word of God." Our world has never fully appreciated the full value of the Bible even thougn it IB corfsWerM th> best selllflg book oft the riferRet today. It is quite significant that otir Bible is compared to the Roman sword. For the Sword was considered the most deadly Wearun of Roman waf* fare. This comparison Is made to teach us this great Pbw^r and Strength of bur Bible. It contains supernatural and divine strength, when appfled to otir HWS rightly. Words almost fall us, in briefly describing the P'ower and True Value of God's word. The twelfth verse of the 4th chapter of Hebrews says, "For the word of God Is quick and powerful and sharper thatt any two edged sword piercing even .to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit and of'the Joints and marrow and Is a dlscerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart". If Only our armed forces today could realise the wonderful power, contained within the pages of God's hidden word. Notice that we are told to put on each part of the Gospel aromour with prayer, "praying always with all prayer and supplication." Oh the Sunshine that comes through the dnrknopB, anH the jny unspeakable and full ot glory, that Is obtained by all Christian soldiers today, who in the words of the old gospel song, "Put on the gospel armour, and watching unto prayer, where duty calls or danger, be never wanting there." "Looking unto Jesus, the author «ttd finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him, enditred the Cross."—Mrs. W. H. Stock.
