W. Ph. 348 2nd Week of Camp Started By JOHN D. CLINTON Clear Lake —"There's a church hat turned into a cottage." That's not the way you heard it? Well it happened last month at Methodist Camp. Occasionally in Iowa, when hings get to whirling, you hear of a steeple landing in a valley, but up north at Kendallville, things started going and the church pews anded at Dubuque, the bell ap- jeared in the tower of the Fair- jank Methodist church while. the umber was piled into a semi- trailer and transported to Clear ake. Now a cyclone would be called an act of God. At Manchester, od and man got together for this building project for youth. The closed church cost the Manchester young adult class at the Methodist church an even $400. Two years ago, as the Rev. Charles Mason and his layman Maurice Wendell wandered the South Shore Camp togettier, they liked a piece of ground in the front row of ots reserved for churches and took an option on it. The same 2 men came to camp with 15 delegates Sunday. They lad poured $1,400 into the church umber; the youth' fellowshippers :hemselves bought 12 army surplus double-deckers and Man- :hester joins the churches thin ling enough of the young people A'ho say it with a cottage. Score "One Up" With this Dubucjue district effort, Waterloo district makes it a score of "One up," with the efforts of First Church, Charles ity. The tune in that church might be "The Seeing Plowmen." Harmon Smith, a designing en- ineer at the Oliver Works, turned cottage designer and stayed by it until the cottage was completed. As chairman his last job was making all the screens as spare time emoloyment in his basement. Then cars and trucks started to roll. They stirred $2,500 into a keg of nails, and at the corner of Asbury drive and Bashford-street a cottage gleams for Charles City. The foundation went in last fall and beginning with Saturdays in the month of March, the procession has continued. The Brotherhood of the church gets the credit, among them being Walter Moll, chief carpenter, Art Blunt, mechanic, E. W. Sperry, doing all the wiring, Martin Brothers at the decorating and Howard McCord on the public school engineering force taking his Saturday classes at Clear Lake each week. 525 Registered For Sunday, Dr. Charles W. Hempstead, newly appointed district superintendent of Waterloo district and Dr. H. H. Dill of Dubuque district, had a group of 525 registered in the 2nd week of institute. A few years back, the attempt was to bring all 4 northeast Iowa districts in one week. That many classes made the bread line too long and the lake too high. The 2 weeks schedule takes care of that. The dean this week is Dr. James Marlin of the Oelwein church who doubles as choir director. The first session was Sunday evening, after which the dean called a choir rehearsal at 9 o'clock and had a hundred present. The public is invited on Thursday morning for an assembly at 11:25 when Hugh Stuntz. president of Scarrit college. Nashville, Term., speaks on south shore at Methodist tabernacle.
