"The reason so many people fail to make that decision is because they lack the courage, courage to break from the old crowd, cburage to break from the old habits, courage to take the up-hill road in life. "The decision to live the Christian life precedes the Christian experience. Hundreds of people have postponed the high moment o£ decision until it was too late because of the mistaken idea that a change of feeling would precede decision." On "The High Moments" The minister spoke on "The High Moment of Decision," taking his text from Luke 9:51, "He steadfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem." The church rostrum was beautifully decorated with a profusion of palms and ferns provided by members of the Women's Guild. "We live in a world that has lost its equilibrium because individuals have lost their personal honor," the minister declared. "Never did the world need religion more than it does today. And every person who rejects Christ and ignores God's claim upon their lives is in part personally responsible for the godlessness that is daily forcing the world closer and closer to disaster. Every Christian has by his or her commitment to Christ voted that the world shall be saved. ''But every person who rejects Christ and closes his heart to religion and spiritual truth has thereby voted that the world shall take its natural course, lead where it may. It Took Courage '·Palm Sunday reminds us of the courage and determination that characterized the Master's life. He knew that to go to Jerusalem would mean his death on the cross --but what o£ that when duty called? If it had not been for the decision of Jesus to yield his life to his Heavenly Father, God; ii it had not been for his decision to give His life in witness of His love for humanity and His devotion to God. no one can even conjecture how history read. would now New Costume Jewelry Sl.OO WATCHES Btlondxarcto DIAMONDS 3 West State Your Snapshot May Win $3 Each week the Globe-Gazette gives S3 for the best photograph submitted by an amateur from North Towa or southern Minnesota.

"Jesus' High Moment of Decision which found expression in his triumphal entry into Jerusalem, reveals to us two virtues that characterized his life and which must characterize the life of every true Christian -- Courage and determination. "It took courage and determination for Jesus to go to Jerusalem, knowing as he did that Jerusalem meant Calvary. It always takes courage and determination to make and carry out any decision for the right. Yet the peace and satisfaction of soul for the individual, and the good and welfare of others depend upon such decisions. Great events swing on small hinges. Careers are often the result of a single decision. The Christian life is based upon high moments of decision. Decision is the first step into the Christian life. Determination to "see i! through" is the Christian journcv of life." ON PASSOVER Sin Worst of Fetters, Dr. C. E. Flynn Declares i Dr. Clarence E. FJynn, minister of the First Methodist church, spoke on "The Great Passover" at the Palm Sunday service. Speaking of the triumphal entrance of Jesus into Jerusalm he explained how the stage happened to be set for such an event. The many people that thronged the highways were on their way to observe the Passover at Jerusalem. Dr. Flynn then briefly retold the story of the captivity of the Jewish people, of the plagues that visited Egypt because the hard hearted ruler would not let them go back to their own land, and then in detail of the last and greatest of them all--the death of the first born in each family of the Egyptians. Could Not Forget Dr. Flynn stated that the Jewish people could never forget that Passover that today, in this city, they are observing as they are everywhere. Jesus, good Jew that lie was. was also on his way to the feast, but he did nnt keep it ;is Ihe others did. It had a larger meaning for him and for us. Dr. Flynn then explained that he felt that Jesus had planned that the drama of redemption should be enacted at that time because the day for a new and greater Passover had come. "His people were slaves,'" said the minister. "The people are today. Did you hear the clanking of your chains as you came in here this morning? You do not do as you please and you cannot. We are among the freest and we are far from free." He then went on fo tell how in Madrid, and other places, that ihe people are not even free to get the news except such as their dictator wishes them to hear. "We wear plenty of shackles that are not political. We ;irc fettered in a thousand ways, but the worst of all is thai of sin: that sin is the fundamental sorrow of all defeat of the human spirit, the reason the world is not like a garden spot; that is the thing that brings most of the tears to human eyes." "A Great Passover" Speaking again of Jesus he said, '·There was a great Passover . . . a great Passover for those who had allowed these deeds of death to be "1£ you were hanging over the brink of a precipice and someone reached a hand to you, would you start wanting to know how he could prove his ability to overcome gravitation and draw you to safety? Philosophize about it later, but now see that the splash of crimson is on your doorpost." G. W. Bryant Had Retired 2 Years Ago George W. Bryant, 84, who retired two years ago with a 58 year perfect record as a railroad conductor, died Sunday night in a hospital at McGregor. Mr. Bryant, who was well known in Mason City, having made the run between McGregor and this community for many years, was taken suddenly ill while on his way to a moving picture theater Sunday evening. The Milwaukee conductor finished his last run on Christmas day in 1S36, with a record unmarred by accidents. He started as brakeman with the railroad in 1878 at Milwaukee where he was born. He came to the local Mil- wukee division in 1880 as a brakeman and later became a freight conductor. In 1883, he was promoted to the position of passenger conductor. Fifty-six years of his railroading was on the same run through northern Iowa and South Dakota. He took one of the first trains to the Black Hills after the gold boom had started there. On the completion of his last run two years ago he was feted at a luncheon in Mason City by the division officials. At the time oE his retirement he was considered the oldest conductor left in passenger service on the local di- EARLY DIAGNOSIS PLANSLAUNCHED AT CONFERENCE County Tuberculosis Association Holds Noon Meeting Plans for the early diagnosis campaign in Cerro Gordo county were launched at a luncheon held at the Eadmar hotel Monday noon with representatives present from welfare, social, labor business and other organizations. The meeting was in charge of Dr. Ralph E. Smiley, chairman of the diagnosis campaign, who talked on the importance of finding and eontroling tuberculosis. Dr. E. L. Wurtzer, Clear Lake, chairman of the program committee, stated the work this spring will consist to a large extent o£ cleaning up work already started in effort to remove sources of infection. Education Needed The Clear L a k e physician pointed out that there is evident need of education to prevent the spread of the disease. Work in North Iowa, he said, is definitely hampered by lack of facilities. At the present time there are 15 active cases of tuberculosis in Cerro Gordo county, Dr. Wurtzer stated, evidence of the fact that patients have to wait for entry into state sanatoria. Representatives of various organizations gave short talks on plans of carrying on the educational campaign. These included Mrs. C. M. Franchere, P. T.
