HELBEBT NEA Special Correspondent DATTON, O., Oct. 00 (NKA).— Rural churches are learning how to keep their preachers down on the farm. They're providing the farms, r Faced with Ihe-prospecl o! mltv- fcters deserting back country parishes for bigger communities and determined that "the' little brown church in the wildwood" would iwl disappear as the little red schoolhouses have, many mid-western country parishes arc offering tlielr preachers a Inrm ot Uieir own. And city ministers, squeezed b; the high cost oi living, are begin ning to realize the attractions of a tew acres, a milk cow, chickens and a pig or two. Other .country parishes huve set up small farms as "The Lord's Acres" where the minister, deacons nnd Die congregation larm together to raise and can food for European relief and for V. S. charities Rev. Russell Hoy of the Meth- odist church «t Canal Lcwlivllle, Ohio (population 233), tells his city breathren: "My family and I decided upon a rural parish after 12 years In large industrial and small clly commurd- lles. We have found nothing unifies the family 10 much it the mutual experience we srmre on our home- »tead of 23 acres which go with this charge." Rev. Hoy finds the solitude of th« corn row and the cool shade ol an apple tree a far better place to think out a sermon than his former city study which' resounded with clanging street cars, screaming sirens and alley ball K""ies.

Various- denominations throughout Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Illinois and other central states have Join Ml the drive to put the preacher behind the plow because, as Dr. A. S. Watson, former president ol Wilmington College in Ohio says: "Rural communities are the seedbeds of our cities and ol all American lite. The church, perhaps, is the best Institution to serve as development center for this Important unit of society. We are trying to preserve that center."
