Redna OhlofT, Lilia Jones, Alice Owen, Clara Waters, Hertha Ruckdasehel. Grace Welzel, Ethel Thoma, Marguerite I.ydon and Celia Beyer, in addition to the school orchestra.

Latest fad is to place a stamp photo on your calling cards and letters. Beedy is selling them at 25 photos for 2a cents and he is kept busy taking pictures and turning out the finished products. J.

Christian Science Churches The subject of the lesson-sermon In all Churches of Christ, Scientist, for Sunday, February 24, 1946, is "Mind". The golden text is "Teach me, O Lord, t way of thy statutes;.. .Give me n-.derstanding and I shall keep thy law". (Psalms 119:33,34) Selections from the Bible and from "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy comprise the lesson-sermon. One. of the Bible citations reads: "By the word of the Lord were tt •> heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth. 'Let all the earth tear the Lord: let all the inhabitants of the world stand In awe of him. For he spake, and It was done; he commanded, and it stood fast". (Psalms 33 6,8,9) From the Christian Science textbook is the following: "The precise form of God must be of small Importance in comparison with the sublime question. What is infinite Mind Oi divine Love? No forn. nor physical combination Is adequate to represent Infinite Love. A Unite and material sense of God leads to formalism and narrowness; it chills the spirit of Christianity", (p. 256) An adaptation of Handel's "Largo" will be sung as it solo by Robert Hall Collins on the Christian Science transcribed program which will be broadcast over Station WHO on Sunday, February 24, at 9 a. m.
