Those attending First Methodist Church found palm fronds lining center aisle in memory of Jesus' palm-strewn path into Jerusalem. (Herald Photo). TUB OTTAWA HERALD f , Monday, April 8* ttttj *^ "Hate To Live Yet Afraid To Die? tf & '% (Continued from page one) < The Christian devotees of the early Church not only outlived but out-died their opponents, for they shared the resurrection faith for themselves which they held for their Lord. Various views toward life after death arise in the minds of modern persons. Some raise the question of where man's continued life takes place. The view is no longer held that our earth is at the center of the universe; heaven has vanished from the heavens, and hell is no longer held as being in the lower regions of our earth. Mu HTM upon • planet estimated to be over four billion yean of age, in an expanding universe U billion years ok), which extends six billion light yean and contains hundreds of millions of planets besides our earth. In asking their questions about life after death in the light of these figures, these persons show different moods: despair, awe, defiance, mystery, anguish, indifference, humility, complacency. More "thoughtful" persons within the frame of thought have been influenced by Scientific Pomona News To Conduct Gas "Odor" Test Here A SONGBOOK FOR OU — E. G. Dick (seated) and B.

By MARY HUDELSON The United Gas Service Company serviceman would like Pomona citizens to know that the gas lines are to be odorized soon in order to locate any leaks. So if you smell a peculiar odor, do not be alarmed. When this job was done in a neighboring town, some confusion was caused because patrons were not aware that it was to happen. A family gathering helped H. 0. Cain celebrate his 85th birthday Sunday. Ice cream and cake were served in the afternoon to Mr. and Mrs. Harold Hale, Forrest Hale and daughters, Barbara and Linda, Topeka; Mr. and Mrs. Jim LJppincott, Lyman, Neb.; Florence Cain and Vem Follet, Kansas City, Mo.; Mr. and Mrs. Roscoe Cain, Quenemo; Mr. and Mrs. Lewis Cain and granddaughter, Linda Cain, Paola; Mr. and Mrs. Charlie Cain; Mr. and Mrs. W. 0.

Marsha Baxter, Nancy Regester, Sarah Harkins, Carolyn Latson, Sandra Buhner, Helen Moon, Shirley Franks and Carla Crump stayed after the class party for slumber party. Sleep came late because the girls went on a hike at midnight and again at 5:30 a.m. They were finally worn out enough to go to bed at 6 a.m. and were up by 9. Mr. and Mrs. Warren Sellens went to Emporia Friday and brought their granddaughter, Sherry Louk, home with them. She is a student at KSTC and is on Easter vacation. On Saturday, April 6, they took her to her home in Abilene. The Sellens spent the weekend at the Clifford Louk home there. Dr. and Mrs. E. E. McDaniel, Cassville, Mo., have been guests of Mr. and Mrs. N. V. Hudelson for several days while they visited with relatives in this area. They spent some time with Mr. W. A. McDaniel at Cedarhouse, Ottawa, visited the Harold and Glen McDaniels in Lyndon and went to Topeka to see Mrs. C. E. McDaniel at the Methodist Home. Bob Driver was baptized. Both the chancel and Wesley choirs gave special music. On Easter Day the two choirs again will provide music. Directors are Mrs. Louise Welborn and Mrs. Dave Bulmer. Humanims, which accepts no religious beliefs not proved by nragmatic, scientifically observed acts. What can be proved by this method about life after death, hey say, is thus far shown only n biological heritage, where a person's immortality is left in his children, and in social influence, where the impact of his life on earth leaves impressions which transcend his death. Thus for them, if life upon this planet were to be annihilated, "immortality" would be lost. The attitudes of the persons who have given the Ingersoll Lectures at Harvard University relative to the problem of life after death show the views of solid thinkers about man's continuity beyond the grave. Harold DeWolf has analyzed the presuppositions of their arguments concerning immortality in 30 of these lectures (1896-1934), with the following among the conclusions from their views: "Faith in immoratlity is in its last analysis faith in God. . . Immortality of man is based on three great postulates: the moral perfection of God, the reasonableness of the universe and the worth of human existence. . .A good God would not create in the expectation and desire for immortality, only to deny the anticipated object. . . . Theism implies immortality." There are other mature thinkers who would argue that the temper of our modern age is one of absolute skepticism about man's survival beyond the grave. A survey of a few years ago showed that 33 per cent ^of our American scientists believe in immortality, 41 per cent are disbelievers and 26 per cent are unsure. Perhaps somewhere in between the statements from the Ingersoll Lectures and those of American scientists the real pulse of the American people about human survival can be found.
