The Bible story netted the church building fund $1,300 on a *50o Investment—better than 2 1-2 for one. Six months ago the minister bor- owcd $500 from n bank, divided it into $10 shares nmong 49 Persons 111 the consrcfifition and himself, and told them to invest the money and bring back the prollu. Sunday was the clay of reckoning nt the church. After the senivjn and hymns two deacons went down il»e aisle passing plates to the who participated in the drive. The collection plates were !eft on the altar while the parishioners loiil what (hey did with their "talents." Forrest Ludwlck, a high school student, arose and told how he used his $10 to bug two pigs, He fed them lor the six months and told them for $30.

Her husband, who first suggested the parable plan to Manifold sponsored a fish try and made a profit of 537. C. W. Smith, n retired telephone linemnn, added a lot of hard work in his investment. He made cement blocks "with my hands and a small mold" to double his money. Paul Guvcr, an aviation plant worker, used his $10 to buy films. Then he took pictures and made postcards good enough to sell to drug stores. He made $27.. Thnt *»s the .same amount as was turned In I by another couple who said they t "fried a lot of doughnuts." Mrs. Howard Hcrrii admitted 1 th:iL she didn't do so well. She raised four canaries. They all turned out to bo hens. But the parson readily granted that he did the poorest of all. He was the victim of bad weatncr. H,told his story when all the others had finished. "You'll remember that In th-j pnr- ablc otic of the 10 took his talent and buried it in the ground so he wouldn't lose 'it." he said. "That's what 1 did. and I nearly lost it..' Manifold put his money into seed potatoes which he Planted near the church. He got a couple of baske's of inavbte-sizcU spuds that lie thought no one would miy. He finally managed to peddle them off at the church baznar as novelties and collector's items. He showed a $3.07 prolit. The pnstor told the congregation that lie has other money-making Demonstration on $500 Investment schemes in mind. The present 30 by 30 foot building only seats 81) person, if all goes well, he said, the congregation should be able to move Into its proposed $25,000 church by 1950.
