There ate more than 270 churches In the 'aim Beac!iis, belli new end c!d, an J almost all 'if them in strikinii in appearance. Bet!if.sJ.i by-the Sea Episcopal Church, at he vomer of Carton Avenue xnd S. County Kiiad in l'alm Beach, was built in 1925, representing the medieval Ideal of serenity and stability in an impressive neo-gothic style of archi-tctuiv. Cold gray cast stone forms the church soaring, with its pointed arches, buttresses and towers. The nave of the church Is 51 feet high, with a typically gothlc wood-trussed ceiling, and the west tower reaches 105 feet toward the clouds An awesome feeling, which seems to be the goal of "gotliic style," pervades Kethesda-bv the Sea inside and out. On !hc vcr modern side of got hie is the Lake -idt Methodist Church on S. 12th Avenue in l.,il:e Worth, built in 1'i.jK. Looking like a .!!! .Vli uw, I iiis church has a large, steep-n ;.it tvil rool "reaching to the heavens" and a series of semi-pointed arches around mi ,) s. Spacious and soaring, ii Is a truly modi vn i 1 1 f i pi lalion of the old gothic. Ai'Onp-'! (r a Catholic Church in south ern Floi Ida is the Spanish Renaissance architecture of St. Edward's Catholic Church on N. County Road in Palm Beach. Built in 1927, this church incorporates cast stone and stucco with many embellishments around doorways, arches and Iwinlng columns. The red-tiled roof discloses the Moorish influence on the architecture of the Spanish Renaissance. The First Church of Christ Scientist, on the West Palm Beach side of the Royal Palrn Way bridge, Is patterned after an ancient Greek temple. Large heavy-looking columns support the building in front, and the roof is of aquamarine blue tile. The church is noticed for the antiquity of Its design, but it was built in 1928. One church in the area has no architecture but that of nature the Chapcl-by-the-Lake, of the First Baptist Church of West Palm Beach. Located on Lake Worth, the open-air-chapel reflects its setting with shimmering pools and "bow" pulpit. For churches on the very modern side, there are the Tropical Sands Christian Church in North Palm Beach, built in 1961; the Immanuel United Presbyterian Church In Lake Park, built in 1967; St. John Fisher Catholic Church In West Palm Beach, built in 1967; and the Nativity Lutheran Church In Palm Beach Gardens, built in 1W2. 1 r i K- 4fitvV . ti 'VfP .id Thnlo B 1 1'i m inn MODERN EQUIPMENT Domenick Custureri, machine is capable of turning out 12 complete biochemist at St. Mary's Hospital, operates the blood tests per minutt .
