In our search foi the eternal truths, the verities con-j ternine: the life that now is. and the i life that is to be, concerning the creation and maintainance of all things, the relationship between man and man. and man and God, we find that revelation; in Jesus Christ. "Second of Purity. The very heart and essence of Christianity is purity; purity in motive;:, purity in "fhoug1i, purity in words, purity in o'eoclij-. 'Blessed are the pure in heext. for they shall see God." "Third of Sacrifice. Life is not all receiving: it is more giving. One truth which we can readily demon-'(trate to ourselves is, 'It is more blessed to give than to receive.' The . unselfish losing of self is the way to find fulness of life in God. , "Fourth of Service. Until our lives arc given to some worthwhile activity, vc are not truly living. Wc are existing, but the animals do that. Life to be real, to be true, to ' be abundant must be dedicated to the t;erviee of our fellowmcn. dedicated to making this world a better place . for ourselves, our fellows,' our posterity. Life is found only in following the example of him who became the servant of all. , "Fifth to God. How weak, how unstable, how fruitless our lives are without God! No true man would have his so. He must be anxious to iriaK"? nis nie abounding, and that is possible only as we find in religion the wy.-to God: the way to an understanding of him, his greatness, his mercy, his love which knows no dimensions, his fatherhood. 'I am the way no man conies to the Father but by me.1" So Jesus not only reveald to us the Father, but be leads us to the Father, to a unity of spirit with him. to a oneness which is unique because he is the. only one who can make that union with Cod complete. "I quote from a recent, message on a similar subject. To all these priceless gifts. Jesus is the Way. He is the way to them because of what he ia himself. Coming to Jesus as Saviour, uccepting him as the way, living in companionship with him as a Person, that is Christianity. The very ' heart of our life's concern should ,be to find him, know him, love him. Eeautiful way! Lovable way! Irresis-table way! Jesus the way!' " The conference opened at 2:30 o'clock, after leaders and speakers had enjoyed a luncheon meeting at the Y. M. C. A. at 12:30 o'clock. Rev. W. J.

N Builds You Up I A w ! i INDIANA Stage and Screen Irish-Jewish Comedy Team at Hudson If there is anything funnier than a "Cohen and Kelly" it is another "Cohen and Kelly." The famous Irish-Jewish comedy team trooped into the Hudson theatre Sunday for a three day engagement on their fourth annual fun-making excursion. This time they appear as "The Cohens and Kellys in Scotland" and what they leave undone in the way of mirth-provocation isn't worth mentioning. George Sidney, Charlie Murray, Vera Gordon and Kate Price are together again in this latest of Uni-versal's uproarious "Cohen and Kelly" series. All are seasoned actors of stage and screen, singularly gifted for comedy portrayals. They work together like clockwork. It is no exaggeration to say there is not a dull moment in the entire picture. The laughs blend into one another so quickly that the mirth may fairly be said to be continuous. A new's reel, Oswald comedy and the exciting jungle drama "King of the Kongo," complete an exceptional program. More Talent Added To Murray Company As though his three-cylinder laugh-producers. Bud, Slim and Bob, were not enough, Virgil Siner Sunday added one more.
