LOCAL TEACHERS IN MONTHLY SESSION ON MONDAY EVENING Meeting In regular monthly session Monday night at the Senior High School, members of the Corsicana Teachers' Association heard two members of their own faculty speak on educational trends and problems. Miss Sarah Holman spoke on "A Reading Program for Elementary School Children" and H. C. Allen gave an address on "The Responsibility of the Pupil." Association members elected Misses Annie Maudo Shaw, Alma Armstrong, and Anna Bell Klber and H. C. Allen to the District House of Delegates which will meet In Temple Saturday. W. H. Norwood, superintendent was nominated to attend the meet- ng of the state House of Delegates. Julius Dorsey of Dallas, the scheduled speaker for tho evening was unable to attend. In speaking of a reading program for the elementary grades Hiss Holman said that more than 20 per cent of the elementary pupils' time la spent in reading and practice for reading. In spite of the excellence ol reading material available the reading problem of the pupil Is a continuous one. Miss Holman said An allied problem Is the fact that many of the pupils who have learned to read well have not developed a taste for good reading and do not read widely, she con tlnued. The reading problem is not ex cluslvely a problem of the ele- ADAMS CASH GROCERY 210 North Commerce • Corsicana, Texas FRIDAY AND SATURDAY Beilt on Earth, AsU ^ ' ^ ._. 1*>9 SUGAR COCOA BROOMS 5 String, Each .., '.AMP GLOBE.

At the present tlmo she reported, an active reading program is going forward in the Corslcana schools. Tests are being given, pupils in an effort to discover their basic reading faults and to set new grading standards. The pupil as well as the teacher has a responsibility, H. C. Alen told the teachers present. Self discipline is Invaluable to the student, he said. Closely linked with self discipline* Is responsibility. Responsibility is important If the student is to un'derstand the purpose of education, ho said. Mr. Allen said .that facts or the ahlllty. to think are as important as anything In education. "The boy or girl who has accumulated a store of facts is not necessarily educated," he said. "Facts are Important only when they are under the control of self discipline. The student must realize that an education Is not the means toward avoiding work but the means which will point the way toward doing more work more efficient- Annual Meeting First National Elect Officers Directors and officers of the First National Bank of Corslcana were re-elected at annual meet- ngs held Tuesday afternoon.

One of our outstanding trips was to Caesarca Phlllppt, with the ascent to Castle Nimrud. When we returned to Tabgha after dark we learned that the road we had taken was officially closed, In fear of the terrorists. It was while sojourning in Caesarea Philippl, or in the villages nearby—for Jesus never overlooked tho little villages— that the Master took His three most intimate friends, Peter, James and John, up into the mountain for a prayer retreat that proved to bo the marvellous experience of the Transfiguration, Nobody knows tho exact site of the Transfiguration. Before the days of historical research, graceful Mt. Tabor, near Nazareth, place. We now know that there was by many thought to be the was a village and a fortress on top of Mt. Tabor In the days of our Lord. Nevertheless, Tabor's peak, which can be reached by automobile, Is worth visiting for the' view, and for the beautiful church which now crowns it. Scholars are agreed that some spur or peak of Mt. Hermon wai the spot whore heaven touched earth, when Moses and Elijah representing the Old Testamen Law and the Prophets, dcscendee from glory to talk with Jesus about the subject of supreme In tercst to heaven and to earth— tho approchlng crucifixion of th Saviour. A Traveller's Memories After an examination of the an clent town of Banlas, dotted wit" antiquities, and a picnic lunch eon by the spring that is th main source of tho Jordon, w set out to climb the nearest spu of Mt Hermon, to visit the ruin of Castle Nimrud, one of th greatest remains of Crusader pos session of the Holy Land. W secured horses and donkeys 1 the village—such horses!—and se out for the steep and stony as cent, much of it trackless. Som cowboy may have my chance th next time. Returning, after ha\ Ing been twice nearly throw over a precipice by a horse wit saddle' slipping down over it neck, I decided to walk down— the stoniest road I have eve traversed. Nevertheless, the mighty cast with/ Its matchless view was am pie reward for the cold and dl ficult climb. What builders those Crusaders were!

Son biting blasts by a bit of wall, and while enjoying the rare, rare view, speculated Upon this outstanding summit as the possible site of the Transfiguration. Incidentally, I mused upon the physical prowess of Jesus and His friends, whose sturdy legs carried them all over the Land, and up many a mountain. Lusty, out-of- doors men were they, and not the pale, effeminate figures of our stained glass windows. If this spot, most accessible to Caesarea Phlllppl, was not the scene of the Transfiguration, some one of the other peaks of Hermon under my eye was surely the place where was enacted this unique and transcendent drama. I was certainly In the Transfiguration area, as I pondered the meanings of this great transaction for the life of today. The Great Change There come moments to all sensitive spirits .when things spiritual are more real than all that s material; when heaven seems closer than earth; and the divine Dosslblllties of tho human for .ho moment emerge, Wo are more than flesh and bones. As ons has said,, "We have bodies, jut we are souls." For a brief time on the-moun- :aln top the spirit of Jesus shono :hrough His bodily frame. Lika His heavenly companions—saints who also had been "despised and rejected of men"—Christ's outward appearance changed to a glistening whiteness, as If He were suffused with light. He was transfigured, so that His whole being glowed with supernal radl- nce. Was this a for.e-gllmpse of tho state of all tho redeemed? We know from the fact that Moses and Elijah appeared in recognizable identity, that personality persists beyond tho grave, This Transfiguration experience, climaxed by tho Voice from tho clouds affirming Christ's sonshlp to God, was a fortifying experience for the forthcoming ordeal of a little hill-called Mt; Calvary. Jesus was reassured of His status and mission. His comforters were the great ones of ancient Israel who had themselves walked the Sorrowful Way. There are those, even among the clergy, who disparage or subordinate the cruflxlon of Jesus. Yet it was the one theme deemed worthy of discussion by the glorified three on the' mountain top. A sermon without the cross In it is not according to tho pattern revealed in the mount. "Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast, Save in the cross of Christ, my Lord." Peter Speaks Up. Chrysostom called Peter "the mouth of the apostles," He was usually the one to speak up first, though often without thought. With his two companions, weary and sleepy, he had seen the unparalleled wonder of this rendezvous of the three glorified mountain men—Moses of Sinai and Nebo; Elijah of Carmel and Horeb; Jesus of many mountains o o o oooooooooooo o , o o ' The Sunday Sobtol LBS- o o eon for January 15 is "Po- o o ter Sees Christ's Glory."— o o Matthew 17:1-18; II Peter 1: o o 16-18, o o lat were His refuge for prayer, ho feelings of the beholders ere of awe and ccstacy and ansport. Why not abide in this oly spot? So Peter proposed that ' he utld three booths, such as these ut-of-doors men so well knew, nd that they remain on the ount of Transfiguration. Ah, loughtlcss Peter, even you should avo known that experiences of gh feeling arc never porma- ent. They have their place; and od pity tho person who has ever experience an hour of oos- acy; but life is to bo lived, not n rare mountain tops, but down n tho plain where sin and suf- crlng and service havO their bode. No commentator has over mlss- d the significance of tho fact hat the Transfiguration was fol- owed by contact with tho crowds clow, and tho healing of the plleptlc lunatic. There Jesus ex- lounded the truth of faith for jervlcc. Our high hours must work out through tho common days.
