The communion service describes and brings to our minds the sufferings and living presence of Jesus The rite of baptism unites the individual with Christ in the likeness of His death, burial and resurrection.

"ENDED 25 YEARS OF WORRY," EXCLAIMS BENTON CO. WOMAN Shellsburg Resident Thrilled When She Found Natex, Only Medicine She Tried Able to R e l i e v e Suffering. "It's only natural that I'm recommending Natex all I can now, because it was the only medicine I tried that was able to relieve my 25-year suffering," declares M r s . Clarissa Hepker, Shellsburg, Iowa. "Although I'd been constipated and feeling below standard for all of 25 years, during the past ten years I seemed to be constantly miserable. I was afraid to cat because of the suffering from indigestion, sourness, gas. heartburn and acid-risings which I knew was sure to follow. Why, I even hated to go to bed at night because my nerves were in such a state that I'd roll and toss for hours before getting even fitful sleep. During the day, I was made even more miserable by headaches, dizzy spells and a gnawing ache across the small of my back. "My husband had used Natex with such grand results, however that nothing could keep me from trying the treatment too. "And it proved to be just as good for me as it had been for him! Starting off with wonderful relief from constipation, I -was soon eating anything I pleased without distress, rny nerves had settled so that i could sleep like a baby every night, and there simply seemed to be no sign at all o. 'he former suffering with headaches, dizziness or backaches Yes, Natex ended 25 years of ' worry for me by bringing me all this marvelous relief, so why shouldn't I recommend this amazing medicine to everyone who suffers as I once did."

KRATZ OUTLINES PLANS FOR GOOD FRIDAY SERVICES 'Complete Business Recess Sought" for Three Hour Period After stating that with the possible exception of the resurrection of Jesus, the crucifixion of Jesus was the most important event in the history of the world, the Rev. David Krafz of the Church of Christ in Mason City announced on "the North Iowa Forum hour over KGLO Sunday evening the plans for observing Good Friday in Mason City. "The hours that Jesus spent upon the cross are traditionally determined as the hours from noon to three on the Friday before Easter Sunday," said the pastor. "All churches in Mason City are planning an observance of these three sacred hours. Services Planned "Good Friday services, between the hours of 12 and 3 will be held in the Catholic churches, the Episcopal church and in a union service of all Lutheran churches. The remaining evangelical protestant churches will unite through the Mason City Ministerial association ·n a service at the First Baptist .·hurch. This service will be in three parts with an intermission period on the hour for those who find it necessary to leave the service. "In the hour between 12 and 1 p. m., Dr. Roy Helfenstein of the First Congregational church will speak. Between 1 and 2 p. m., the Rev. C. N. Jones of the Union Memorial church will speak. I shall bring the sermon to the third and last service between 2 and 3 p. m. The Hamilton choir will sing at the first service, a high school group at the second and Mrs: Raymond Weston at the third service. "The churches of Mason City are virtually unanimous in their desire to have the three hours spent by Christ on the cross set aside for a season of serious meditation and worship. "We would like to have a complete business recess during this period. We were unable to get the co-operation o£ the various business houses of Mason City to this plan this year chiefly because their managers did not think there was sufficient public demand for such an observance. Don't Realize Importance "We believe that this is true because the public has not had the matter brought seriously to its attention, and thus has not been led to recognize the importance of such observance. "Since we declare holidays for every pretext from the birthday of a great man to the commemoration of significant historical events, surely we can find time on this day to recognize the sufferings on the cross of the world's Savior "Without Good Friday there can be no Easter. We can have best the true spirit of the Easter victory if we take time first for Good Friday meditation. The power of the Resurrection is known best by those who have tasted the fellowship of His sufferings. "To everyone wishing to promote a more serious observance of the Easter season may we suggest the following: "As far as possible cease work on the hours between 12 and 1 on Friday, and devote the time to serious reflection on the meaning of the cross to one's self and to the world. Attend Services "During this time attend services in the church of your faith, or in the union services at the First Baptist church. "Such purchasing that must be done on Friday should be done either before or after this three hour period. "If all sincere Christians will follow these rules, although we cannot hope for it to be done this year, we can look forward to the waking of the minds of the community to the serious meaning of the cross and the future proper observance of the day that commemorates the world's supreme event." "Unreality" Subject of Lesson-Sermon at Scientist Church "Unreality'' was the subject of the lesson-sermon in the Church of Christ, Scientist, Sunday. The Golden Text was from Proverbs 30:8, "Remove far from me vanity and lies; give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me." The lesson-sermon comprised quotations from the Bible and from the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. One of the Bible citations read: "Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error" (I John 4:1, 6). Among the selections from the Christian Science textbook was the following: "Error is the contradiction of truth. Error is a belief without understanding. Error is unreal because untrue. It is that which seemeth Jo be and is not. If error were true, its truth would be error, and we should have a self- evident absurdity--namely erroneous truth" (p. 472). Air express in the United Slates totals approximately 500,000 000 Pound-miles per month. ._ _ t. 11 British Embassy in Washington ^ "here Kin, G eor s e Drake University Singers to Appear in Mason City Prof. S.

GA1US G. ATKINS "YE HAVE MADE IT" Monday in Holy Week. My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves. Read Matthew 21: 10-17. These words read so bitterly; they must have been spoken so sadly. For what Jesus saw and heard in the temple was religion gone wrong; a temple made a market for profit instead of a shrine for prayer. It matters always when anything goes wrong; even very little things. It matters tragically w h e n the greatest things in life go wrong. Love gone wrong issues in strange follies; loyalty gone wrong drenches the earth with the blood of the brave. When churches house spiritual pride and their leaders contend for power and station and subtle greeds corrupt the soul, religion has not only lost its power, it denies its Lord and crucifies Christ anew, AH this did not end in Jerusalem 2,000 years ago. It is a danger against which those to whom the Christian church are entrusted need always to be on guard. The Master still stands at the threshhold of every church, asking: "What have ye made it?" Prayer: Lord of the sorrowful vision, wielder still of the whip of cords, grant unto us, though the vision reproach us, a searching self-judgment as we consider what we have made of Thy faith and Thy church. Forgive our un- brotherly pvide, save us from making any merchandise of sacred things, and let our prayers for purer lives ascend as incense before Thee. In Jesus' Name. Amen Opposes Pole Vault, Distance Running as Iowa Prison Sports FORT MADISON, (/P)--Warden Glenn C. Haynes has put his foot down on two suggested additions to the Iowa penitentiary sports program--cross country running and pole vaulting. The Presidio, prison magazine, Monday quoted the warden as saying "prospective harriers must wait a few years before realizing secret ambitions to become long distance travelers." Pole vaulting may be permitted, the magazine continued, "but would be confined to those who can do no better than 10 feet." LEWIS THEME IS 'CONSECRATION School of Christian Living Ends; Pastor Discusses Marriage "The richest fullest life ever lived was that of Jesus Christ," said the Rev. J. Lee Lewis in his Palm Sunday sermon at the First Baptist church speaking on the theme, "The Master's Consecration." "He possessed unusual powers," the pastor continued. "Even the hem of his garment had healing power. His hands carried the healing forces. He was a great fountain from which streams of living waters flowed. "What was the secret of this unusual power? Leaving out for the moment his spiritual enduement, the secret ot' his power was his consecration of his talents, his powers and his gifts to God." "The gospel of St. John gives us the answer in the seventeenth chapter and the nineteenth verse 'And for their sakes, I sanctify through the truth.' It was the personal sanctification of Jesus that made him what he was." The pastor then told the story of the American associate of the Japanese scientist, Dr. Nogouchi. When the party went to the west coast of Africa to investigate the cause of a fever Dr. ffogouchi in some way took the fever and died at his work: A Japanese giving his life for Africans. "What we need today is more Japanese to lay down their lives for Africans, Germans to lay down their lives sacrificially for Jews and Russians, Jews to follow the Master Teacher and lay down their lives for their enemies," said the pastor. T !? closing of the School of Christian Living was the occasion of the Rev. Mr. Lewis speaking of the meaning and content of the marriage service in the class on Youth and the Homes of Tomor- dow."
