Emblem HOPE OF GLORY INTERPRETED People Have Various Notions, Declares Dr. C. E. Flynn People have different .ways of interpreting the hope oC glory, Dr. C. E. Flynn declared at the morning service of the First Methodist church Sunday. "One man's notion of glory is something like a circus parade with him sitting on the front seat of the band wagon," the minister said. "To another man it means victory . . . to get ahead . . . to win a game . . . to make more money ... to show off a little more effectively than the neighbors. .When he reaches his goal he discovers it didn't amount to much-- it just gave him something to work for. Senses GEody The third one rises to the level where be senses triat,: glory is. a quality of life--something'that .is " woven into the fabrics of life--all the experiences and interests of everyday life. This person realizes that every wayside bush is aflame with God and he refuses to live in a world whose boundary life is the grave.- He insists that he belongs to the eternities and the eternities belong to him. This person has only touched the outer fringes of glory for the rest of it is beyond the range of flesh and blood. It is not within the reach of ordinary character. "Many times we are lifted high while in the sanctuary, but when we get out into the business world we find difficulties, to some social e n t a n g l e m e n t s , and we are dragged down into the dust "Christ is the H5pe of Glory and that he belongs and functions from within that we may attach a name to a human being, but a quality, like that of Christ, has to be from within. It is a spiritual force, a spiritual quality and the only throne it can occupy is the heart. -If we have any hope ot it ourselves it is that it shall be a personal, compelling influence that proceeds from within." Influenced by Others "Your life, whoever you are, is largely made up of the influence of others upon you." "So long as we are going to be dominated by other people why not let that personal influence be the best there is? There is only one good enough to say he is the " Hope of Glory the One to . . whom we turn when we have a problem, the One whose spirit settles down upon us with a compelling glow. Let Him be the force in our life instead of some one else." "Reality" Subject of Lesson Sermon at Science Church "Reality" was the subject of tlie lesson-sermon in the Church of Christ, Scientist, on S u n d a y March 26. The Golden was from Philippians 4:8, ' " W h a t s o e v e r DRY CLEANING Prompt--Efficient Service Phone 396 Mason City Dyers Cleaners HOI Xo.

M. C. A. emblem, "which is -a graphic representation ot the organization's religions and educational philosophy, at the Wise Men's club meeting. One ring- of ihe double circle represents completeness a n d unity of the total of life and the cosmic order. The other ring has the symbolism of a wedding ring with friendship and love without end among individuals. The Greek letters XF, meaning Chi Rho, are the first two letters of the word Christos and in themselves the emblem of early Christianity. One of the triangles stands for Jriniiy within the Godhead: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The other triangle shows the trinity within man, that of the spirit, mind and body. The Bible is open at Christ's Intercessory prayer, the gospel ot John, seventeenth chapter and twenty- first verse, which is the organization's foundation text and sets forth ihe unity ot purpose of the membership.. The verse reads "That they mar aH be one even as thou. Father, art in me and I J, that they also m»y be in MJe · · - - · · that thou : send m*." (Kay- enay Camera store photo.)

Kratz, pastor o£ the Church o£ Christ, in his Sunday morning sermon. "Though some take a sordid delight in emotional display and may use tears as a means to obtain ulterior ends the tears of Jesus were spontaneous and never meant for public gaze " ·,;i c 5." s wept through sympathy with his friends who sorrowed at the death of Lazarus. He was conscious of the fact that Lazarus would soon step forth alive, but because those he loved were weeping, Jesus also wept · " Jesus . we Pt m anger at the cold Judgments o£ those who would have prevented him from healing a: crippled man on the Sabbath Mis anger was not mere enmity agamst-the meR.'who opposef.Bifn, but a tearful protest against attitudes of Jjfe that made men indifferent to the welfare of each other. "Jesus wept because of the rejection oE His nation. On the hill overlooking Jerusalem and in the Crarden of Gethsemane, Jesus wept because his love had been refused. "Tears are not necessarily a sign of. weakness. ,Jesus saved us, not only by His teachings and the physical cross, but also by His tears. His tears were evidence that lie was strong enough and noble enough to not refuse the sorrow for the world's sin by aloofness and indifference. Thus He touches all men in their deepest needs and becomes the savior of all " 91-YEArMJLD PASTOR ON AIR Says Mankind Must Serve" in Same Way Nature Does "Service is the law of the Universe. Every item in. God's creation- was intended to give some form of service. In the laboratory o f l i f e we learn that we must help others bear their burdens in order to develop strength to bear our own." ' So spoke Dr. Samuel Q. Helfen- stem, 31 year old uncle of the pastor of the Fit-st Congregational church in Mason City, in a North Iov;a Forum message over KGLO Sunday evening. Pleads for Chinese The aged speaker said that the suffering of the starving million: in China is no doubt {he most pitiful picture ever painted on the canvas of human life. He said that every American ought to want to give something toward their relief. Speaking on the subject, "Living Laboratories of Sen-ice," the visiting pastor cited how nature comes through in terms ot service--the fruit trees, the flowers etc. ' The cow, the goose and the sheep were cited as "living laboratories" of service. Dumb Animals Serve "If dumb animals can give such service to their fellow creatures " continued the speaker, "think of what service man should render to his fellow man. Every tree, fowl and animal carries out the Creator's purpose for its life. Man was made to serve humanity and to honor God. Jn all of God's creation, man alone has disappointed Him in failing to do and to be what God purposed. Religion inspires man to make his life the realization of. God's purpose." Doctor Helfenstein closed with a poem, which he said he had written a few weeks ago. QUEEN ELECTION TO BE FEATURE OF 1939 EVENT Committee Begins ; Work ,on Great Musical Event June 20 has been set as the date for the 1939 North Iowa Band festival in Mason City. · ' The date was set by a Chamber of Commerce committee made up of \V. L. Nichols, chairman, John D. Vance, C. F. Weaver, D. G. Klempnauer, Carleton L. Stewart, C. A. Parker and Don W. Wieder. . The committee has been authorized by , the board of directors of the Chamber of Commerce to make plans, appoint the necessary sub-committees and raise" the money to carry out the project. Is Fourth Event This will be the fourth band festival and from present indications will be patterned after the glamorous, .colorful event of last year when a queen of the event was selected. Participating communities are again to be asked to name candidates for Miss North Iowa. The program will include a morning parade, but instead of asking organizations to prepare floats the committee will offer $100 in cash prizes for the privately owned decorated automobiles. Changes Planned Other changes will be made in the plans for the festival, including a new arrangement at the stadium foi- the grand finale which will facilitate handling ofjthe huge qrowds which attend this annual affair, according to the March news bulletin of the Chamber ot Commerce. The festival last year was held as part of the observance of Mason Citys -Both anniversary, which p r o v i d e d an added incentive The enthusiastic participation by North Iowa musical organizations however, gave Mason Cityans assurance that a similar program this year with the selection of a festival queen would be a tremendous success in 1939.
