'Methodist Music Now Volunteer; Trustee Approved WEEK OF PRAYER SERVICES CLOSE A successful Week of Prayer has been completed by Protestant churches under the sponsorship of the Ministerial Association. The theme of meditation at the closing services was "Power From on High." In order that the many shortcomings oxisiting not only in the lives of individuals, but also in the life of the church, nation and in the world at large, may be corrected through the medium of faith and prayer, a great unseen power is needed, it was pointed out. The power, however, is not human nor machine or scientific, but "power from on high." ily of North "Union township, died Friday at the Uniontown Hospital, where he had been a patient ^for a week.

With the exception of the organist, music of the First Methodist Episcopal Church was put on a volunteer basis by action of the official board at its annual meeting Thursday night. At the same time the financial secre- taryship was reduced to a voluntary basis. Miss Helen Grey was elected "minister of music," with complete charge of the regular choir, the young people's and the junior choirs. She succeeds Charles D. Bailey, who had been director of the adult choir lor 17 years. Mrs. L. G. Hoover will continue as organist. The adult choir of nine voices and the young people's of 39 will be combined for all services except the first Sunday of each month when the juniors will sing. They number 55. Miss Myrtle Bixler and Miss Lillian Edmonds were elected financial secretaries. They succeed Frank W. Jones, who has held that position for several years, on a salary basis. Allison Marshall was elected secretary of the oftlcial board. C. O. Bane was reelected church treasurer. Election by the board of trustees of A. A. Clarke as a trustee to succeed the late A. B. Kurlz was approved. The pastor, Rev. L. S. Elliot, is chairman of the official board by virtue of his position as leader of the church. There is a spreading movement to dispense with paid choir directors, the pastor snid, and replace them by ,voluntccr "ministers of music," It will be the duty of the "minister of music" not only to direct the choir but develop material. At the First Church this has been done to a great extent by Miss Grey, who built up the young people's and junior choirs. Rev. Schuiiz Will Be Evangelist at Youngwood Church Rev. Elmer A. Schultz, pastor of the First United Brethren Church, has been engaged as evangelist to conduct a two week's scries of meetings in the United Brethren Church at Youngwood.

ERROL FLYNN Also--COMEDY -- LATEST XKAVS -- T R A V E L Booh Review Sunday At Christian Church The book to be reviewed tomorrow afternoon at the vesper service at the Christian Church is the recent work by Gladys Hasty Carroll which sh! has called "Neighbors to tho Sky." This series of services which was inaugurated last Sunday, is endeavoring to present the underlying themes of unusual and significant pieces ot fiction. The story of the book selected for this week centers about a young married couple who emerge from a New England farm to face a world that is strange and different. The ambiton of one party and the easy going satisfaction ot the other, work together to describe the homes in which many of us are living. If into the situation there does not come something which is fixed and secure, then the tension often leads to un- happincss nnd difficulties. Mrs. Carroll Is urging that those who find themselves in this situation, may become "Neighbors tc- the Sky" and there find the solution which they seek but which eludes their grasp. .
