The Seventh-day Adventist Church, 190 W 11th Street, has scheduled a special 13th Sabbath School program today at 9:15 a.m. The offering contributed by 2.3 million Seventh-day Adventist throughout the world will be received to strengthen three mission training schools In the Far East, according to Mrs. Verlie Simmons, Primary Department Sabbath School Leader who is in charge of the program. She added that part of the offering will also help to erect Jungle Chapels where nationals can meet for their own Sabbath School and worship services protected from sun, rain and mud. The primary department studied about the disciples this quarter and their Theme song for the program is "The Disciples." Mrs. Simmons will be assisted by Mrs. Myrl Moore, teacher of the boys' class and Mrs. Barbera Day, teacher of the girls' class. Mrs. Moore will have the opening prayer, and Mrs. Day will give the mission talk. The girls' class has memorized and will recite the memory verses for the entire quarter while holding picture posters depicting the scenes of the verses. The boys' class will give a poem entitled "Show Them You Care." Special music will be given by Elaine and Tonia Day, sisters-daughters of Mrs. Barbera Day, and Franklin and Regie Day, brothers-sons of. Mrs. Gloria Day who will accompany them at the piano.

Five hundred years ago the wealthy and powerful rulers of Spain and Portugal heard stories of jungle-covered islands set in warm oceans far to the east of India. Rumor said that islands abounded with the spices so much coveted by the wealthy society people of Europe. When in 1512 a Portuguese captain, Ferdinand Magellan discovered the spice islands, he also planted seeds of Christianity. It was more than 450 years ago that Magellan gave the world its first clear picture of the Treasure Islands of the South Pacific. Today we have over a quarter million Seventh-day Adventists in the Far Eastern Division. However, the church is not con- • cerned with spices, precious stones, or oil. It seeks a far more Valuable treasure the souls of men and women. Mai, 3:17. All four of the projects to benefit from the 13th Sabbath Offering Overflow, this quarter are located in the islands discovered by Magellan. Philippine Union College, Naga View Campus; North Sulawesi (Sool-uh-way-see) Academy, Waiame Academy, and Jungle chapels. Naga View with more than 1700 students is our largest college outside of the U.S. The students are employed in the wood-working dept., caring for cattle, or working in the rice paddies and in the schools extensive orange, guava and coconut groves. North Sulawesi located on the northern tip of Celebes opened in 1948 was in direct line of fighting during a bitter revolution in the late 1950s. Waiame established in 1965 located on Ambon, a tiny dot in the Banda (Bahn-dah) Sea and other islands making up the Moluccas group still supplies a large portion of the cloves and other fragrant spices used in the kitchens throughout the world. "Here", said Mrs. Simmons, "Christians erect churches costing hundreds of thousands of dollars. However, deep in the Jungles of Borneo, Indonesia, the Philippines and the countries of Southeastern Asia, simple jungle chapels can be erected for as low as $500." "They consist", she explained, "of a cement foundation, a three foot high wall, and uprights supporting metal or thatched roof. In order to help to visualize the need as well as the beauty, Mrs. Simmons has spent much time building a minature jungle chapel which will be on display during the program. Rev.
