The five acre plot of land was recently purchased and now has a house and other buildings on It. Ali except the house will be razed in the near future.

I THE XAZAKEXE church is now ! located on the southeast corner of Third avenue east and south Second street. Rev. T. T.

The church also has a parsonage ; at 709 Third avenue east and an; other house south of the church. | The church and the house south of the church will be sold as soon . as possible. j In the new structure, the con- gregation wants a church that will' seat no less than 500 in the sanctuary with room for another 200 in overflow rooms. j Members of the building committee are: Harold Waal, chairman of the board of trustees, John Visser, Clarence Else, and Rev. McCord. i THE NAZARENE church, which had its beginning in Oskaloosa in April 1914, has an active membership of 335 in the church and 280 enrolled in Sunday school. Rev.
