And that is compensation not always commensurate with decree of service'. Of, the professions most erf t e n ! ramed, the calling of a minister"' Is a typical example. There may' he other compensations, but one! need is common, and that is toi take care of expenses as t h e y ' arise, with littte or no regard f o r j the future. · ' The Rev. and Mrs. H. F.

Sh« continued that on account of Irregularity of expenditures and additional income jn the form of gifts, her family must take care of Incidentals as they come up. Because their congregation i s self-sustaining, the Neunabers , receive a regular semi-m o n t h i y salary with periodical voluntary raises. Gifts from their families ftnd the congregation at Christmas .and other occasions help to supplement tiiis income. Showers For instance, before. Mrs. Neiuia- ber left with the children for a vacation at her home in Missouri, the women of the church gave her a nylon shower and coffee. A baby shower for Kathy took care of her clothing needs for a year. Shoes are usually bought with cash gifts from the grandparents.. ' When the Neunabers" returned from their vacation, they found -their entire home redecorated in Mrs Neunaber's chosen c o l o r scheme. The house itself was furnished gradually, and the family Is looMrig forward to the end \of the year, when, both their, new electric refrigerator and a mortgage loan, on the car will be paid for.-.' .
