'In his book, "The Man Nobody Knows," Bruce Barton writes of Jesus as comparable to the big busltu'ss executive of today. Tlie comparison has never seemed lo me a happy one, but it does ixe an aspect of the ml s that has not been clcncly recognized. We think of Jesus as the quiet. Teacher In the fields, or by the lake, or on the mountain, speaking in parables, conveying the deepest teachings in seemingly casual incidents nnd contacts, traveling about surrounded by His disciples. Actually, He was tin effective organizer, 'carefully Instructing and training His (ll.sciples, sending them forth to be "fishers of men" ninety as tlio master salesman of today might direct a sales force. In n sense, those disciples were going forth to ".sell" the Kingdom. .They h:id n gospel to proclaim, am! Jc.sus told them how to do it, as He gave them the incentive to go about it. The Twelve 'weren't always with Im. He sent them out through the lltigcs, two by two; and they were pparcntly so successful in their lissiou thai He appointed 70 more, •horn He trained and sent out in he same way. Part of their mis- ton was to go into the places !o which Jesus would himself come, present-day terms, 'they might la'vn linen called advance, or mih- Icitv, agents. liut they were more than that. Jesus h:ul told them that they would have power, and they returned from their mission full of surprise and rejoicing, saying, "Lord, 'e\/n the devils are sub- nto as." They might have had competent among his followers. The wprlcl could stand- a revival of the ways by 'which the gospel and the church have achieved tlielr greatest triumphs.

Other officers named wcre/Tal Moody of Memphis; first vicepfes: dent; Drew Lander of kittle Roe] second vice president; and Maupi Cummings of Payettcville, trea-s urer. ' but Jesus bade them to rejoice rather that their names were written in heaven. These men had something real and positive to declare. They could tell of the wonderful Man they had come to know—of how He found them aiitl they found Him. They could say ."Come and see." The world needs today more of i that simple, cnrly Chrlstla'n evangelism—people telling in plain ways I of the Christ they have found. This method that Jesus employed has hud the same results whenever and wherever put into practice by His followers. One of the greatest emulators of his Master wns John Wesley, founder of Methodism. A traveling preacher and teacher, going about wherever people would listen to him .asserting that the whole world was his parish, he was even more remarkable as. an organizer than as a .scholar, theologian, and preacher. • He or/.nizcd and trained lay preachers, he established classes and class-leaders, small groups meeting regularly for testimony and counsel, led by the more aggressive and NOTICE Notice is hereby given that the undersigned w.ill within the time fixed by law apply to the Commissioner of Revenues of the State of Arkansas for a' permit to sell beer at,'retail at Main St., Lcachvlllc, Mississippi County.
