SATURDAY. AUGUST 27, 1949 Church and itvllfitoti "Xrtr PAGE 5 The Conjurer in Church Sunday School Lesson Pastor Teaches Religion Through Magic Man's Highest Attainment By WILLIAM E. GILROV, D. D. (When the Psalmist wrote in Psalm 119:11, "Thy word have I hid in niine heart, that I might not sin against Thee," what did he mean? In the New Testament, in John is the account of the Word that was in the beginning, the Word made flesh, dwelling among men in the earthly life of Jesus This Week in Religion Holy Year of 1950 May Be Greatest In Six Centuries Findings at Tomb of St. Peter's Basilica May Be Announced During Great Jubilee Reports from Rome this week that the tomb of St. Peter has been discovered under the great Basilica which bears his name have served to heighten interest in the Holy Year of 1950 which will be ushered in next Christmas Eve. If the finding of St. Peter's remains is verified and the report of the Vatican excavators is promulgated ill 5 Pope Piux XII in person at -i- "1 i -1 i vl 4L f'f- )' vvw 4 -y- rv PI I Rev. Voorhees at Carnegie Church Thirty years ago a young Methodist minister saw Houdinl perform in Erie, Pa. He was so enchanted by the master magician, particularly his slate writing trick, that he talked about doing it himself. His wife questioned whether he could do it. That was the proverbial last straw. Rev. Ted V. Voorhees got himself a slate and proved to Mrs. Voorhees he could do the spirit slate writing trick. For the last 27 years Rev. Voorhees has been practicing magic from the pulpit. He has recruited several hundred young ministers of all denominations to his theory of teaching faith in God through magic. Children's Favorite Now pastor of Carnegie Methodist Church, Washington Carnegie, Rev. Voorhees is a favorite of children. He performs for them at least once a month showing them the "way to religious thinking through magic." "The children," the minister explains, "like the multiplying bill trick the best. I tell the story of Jesus providing the multitude by the sea shore with a single loaf and a single fish." To illustrate the story he tells of the lady who had $50, kept spending it here and there way past the amount she originally had and still always ended up with at least S50. Always a Quip Rev. Voorhees always has a quip or pun to go with each of his tricks, but the children aren't the only ones he believes in teaching through puzzles. For these, Rev. Voorhees often performs the trick of the inexhaustible cylinder, an apparently empty object, from which he produces yards upon yards of cloth. The congregation doesn't understand how he does it, so he has a comeback for those who say they do not believe in the Bibical miracles because they don't understand them. His theory is, generally: "If I can do this, and you do not un derstand, what must God be able to do with his ominous powers?" Rev. Voorhees has known and corresponded with several mas- Among the a the Word that was with God, and was God." But what did the word of God mean to Old Testament writers, who wrote many years before Jesus came? For them, as for those of the New Testament, it meant God in the heart, and the "heart" was the center of man's life and being. To have God in the heart meant to be guided and controlled by God. The word of God was the expression of God, synonymous with His commandments and His law. In Psalm 40:10 the' writer expressed the same thought in the words, 'T have hid Thy righteousness within my heart" In Isaiah 51:7 is the reference to the people In whose heart is the law of God. The sense of right was dominant in all the devout Hebrew's thought of God, and of man's relation to Him. The good man is the "upright" man (Psalm The figures of the measuring line, and the plumb line, are applied to life and char acter, as they are to building. So the word of God in the heart was a word of law and command. The good life was not a matter of chance, or of man's preference. It was based on the unalterable character and laws of God himself. As well expect a life without law to be good, as to expect a house built without square, and measurement, and plumb line, to be anything but crooked. This elemental truth, so repeatedly emphasized in the Psalms, has been sadly disregarded and neglected even by many who make profession of religion, and consider themselves among the saved. What a world this would be if every nominal Christian and church member had the Psalmist's passion to have the word of God hidden In the heart, so deep and strong that it was the motive power of every word and action! To be "upright and innocent from the great transgression" (Psalm 19:13) must be the sincere purpose of every man who would be worthy of a place in the fellowship of those who love the Lord. Christian teaching only enforces and strengthens all that the Psalmist wrote concerning UP, UP, UP goes the magic aluminum ball as Rev. Ted V. Voorhees commands it. The Methodist minister shows his parishioners how to believe Biblical miracles with this trick. "If I can do this, and you do not understand it, what must Cod be able do?" he asks. Rev. Voorhees uses the old trick of the disappearing pink lemonade, right, in his sermons to children. He tells about the selfish little boy who got all he could drink for a nickel and wanted more. Told he could have it, if he shared it with his sister, he agreed, but tried to drink it himself. Then he discovered the lemonade was gone. ft v. a I'll f4 DR. D. W. RICHARDS Directs Welsh singers.

If Jesus stressed the new commandment of love, it was as the fulfilling of the law. and not its abrogation, or as a substitute for it. There is no substitute for righteousness.

"I Believe in the Holy Spirit, the Revcalcr" Reverend Christian Edward Ludwig, D.D., Pittsburgh GUEST ORGANIST CATHERINE KEPPEL FISCHER the opening of the great jubilee as has been predicted the Holy Year will undoubtedly rank as one of the most memorable since the first special year of prayer and atonement was proclaimed by Pope Boniface VIII in 1300. It was announced last Spring that one of the biggest happenings of the Holy Year might be the publication of a report by a commission set up in 1939 to conduct-excavations in the vaults of St. Peter's Basilica. Vital Questions Major interest has recently centered on the question whether the excavators have discovered the tomb of St. Peter and thus are able to verify beyond dispute Catholic claims not only that the First Pope came to Rome, but that he was buried under the site of the Basilica which bears his name. According to the reports this week, the Vatican archeologists have, in fact, discovered St. Peter's tomb, and in the place traditionally assigned to it directly beneath the Altar of the Confession, or main altar, of the Basilica. The reports further claim that an urn containing St. Peter's bones was found in the tomb, and is now reposing in the private chapel next to Pope Pius' study in the Vatican Palace. Pledged to Secrecy However, these reports have come either from unnamed Vat- Pers- ine Vatican arcneologists anc? ever' Person associated with their work have remained pledged to the threat strictest secrecy under of severe ecclesiastical 'Penalties. One of the curious features of the situation is that Pope Pius himself, as early as last January, informed a group of Roman students that "under the central Prt of the gigantic dome (of St. Peer's Basilica) was, and is, the Place of st- Peter's grave." is inougnt tnai in view of the reports circulating this week Pope Pius may find it expedient to put all doubts and questions completely to rest by officially proclaiming the results of the Vatican scientists' work. If these findings assuming they are as reported, are promulgated uuiiug me noiy i car mey will add an exceptional note of re to, the fr whi Catholics from all over the world will journey to Rome next year. Religious Landmark One other happening which would also make the 1950 Holy Year "a historic and religious landmark would be the proclamation of the Dogma of the Assumption of the Blessed Mother of God. Belief that the Virgin Mary was assumed bodily into Heaven after her death has been common among Catholics for close on 15 centuries. But for more than 80 years a movement has been growing to have the doctrine proclaimed inafallibly. According to Vatican sources, demands for a definition of the Assumption Dogma have grown to such a degree that there is a strong possibility that the Pope may issue an ex-cathedra declaration some time during the Holy Year, It is said that the number of petitions already exceed the total submitted for the proclamation of the Dogma of the Immaculate Conception in 1854, although the latter were received over the period from 1617 to 1848. Should the Pope decide to define the Assumption, it will be the first dogmatic definition since 1870, when the Vatican Council promulgated the Doctrine of Papal Infallibility in matters of faith and morals. Church Enters 96th Year Parishioners of St. John's Catholic Church, Coylesville, are making plans for observance of the historic church's 96th birthday this Fall. Plans for the celebration will be outlined at the annual homecoming and picnic on Sunday, Sept. 4. The Dedication and Blessing of the recently built grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes will be held at 3 p. during the homecoming celebration with Msgr. William J. Spiegel, pastor of St. Paul's Church, Butler, officiating. St. John's Church is located 8 miles east of Butler on Route 422. Music Service Planned Paul Bosau, New York baritone, nnd Muriel Thompson, local contralto, will be featured tomorrow morning in a special program of classical and religious music at Washington Heights Methodist Church, Bigham St. and Virginia Mt. Washington. Delia Rawsthorne, musical director of the church, will be in charge with Dorothy Scabereti accompanying at the organ.

Mental Test Urged For Politicians GENEVA, Switzerland, Aug. 27 (UP) A Danish psychiatrist said today that "every leading figure in every branch of government" should be tested physically and mentally. Dr. P. J.
