Clover Hill Church Thrives With Congregation of One By GEORGE W. HACKETT FLEMINGSBURG, Ky. CAP)Three strangers walked into the Clover Hill Methodist Church one Sunday morning, looked around and discovered they were alone except for an elderly woman deep in prayer. "Where's 'he rest of the congregation?" they asked, struggling to conceal their surprise. "I'm it," replied Miss Ollie Spencer. She also is the steward, treasurer and trustee of the white frame structure with its twin front doors. The church was built in 1856 in a remote community outside Elizaville, had 50 members at the turn of the century, but today carries only one name on its records—Miss Spencer's. She pays out $400 a year for the pastor's salary and donates at least $300 to missions and charitable groups. And whenever Clover Hill needs a coat of paint, Miss Ollie, still vigorous at 81, does the job herself. She keeps the interior of the Church spotless, tunes the piano whenever necessary, and in winter fires up an old iron stove so that the place is warm by the time the Rev. Harry Oldaker arrives. He holds services at Clover Hill twice a month and on alternate Sundays takes Miss Ollie to his other church. "She never misses a Sunday attending services somewhere," he says, "and always insists upon contributing to any special collections we may have." During extremely bad weather the Rev. Mr. Oldaker stops by the house and holds services there for his one-woman congregation. The house—Miss Ollie was born there—has a telephone but few other modern conveniences. She raises her own garden, cans the vegetables and fruit that grow on the 130-acre tract. "A neighbor tills my land and 1 take care of the chickens and my baby beef cattle." Although the property is one of the most productive in the area, Miss Ollie won't sell it. "The Lord gives me all I need." Besides, she asks, "who would take 1 Couple From East Visit In Fairview FAIRVIEW - Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Gardenhour of Sharpsburg, Md., visited Monday in the home of Mrs. Irene West.

Produced More Than 30 Years In bringing to Galesburg the Black Hills Passion Play, the Register - Mail is presenting a theatrical production unique in the history of the drama. Acclaimed as the most outstanding production of its type, the Black Hills Passion Play reconstructs the dramatic events of the seven last days of the life of Jesus. One of Europe's oldest productions, the Passion Play was presented for the first time on the American stage in 1932 as the Luenen Passion Play, Luenen being the name of the town in Germany where it had its origin. II; became a permanent institution in America when the company settled in the Black Hills of South Dakota in 1938. A huge amphitheater was constructed at the picturesque town of Spearfish where each year the world's greatest tragedy is enacted during the summer months. In recent years it has also been presented in early spring at Lake Wales, Fla., during the Lenten season. In the present tour, the company comes here from recent appearances in Iowa and Missouri cities. Critics say the American production now rivals Europe's famed "Oberammergau." During the past 25 years the Black Hills production has been seen by more than six million people. The Chicago D;'ily News has termed the CHILDREN PICTURED WITH THE CHRISTUS center this beautiful scene enacted in the Black Hills Passion Play as He tells onlookers, "Of such is the kingdon of heaven." Colorful pageantry like this is lavishly used in portraying events of the seven last days on earth of the Saviour, in touring production to be staged at Galesburg High School auditorium Sunday and Monday. An unforgettable religious, dramatic and musical experience is assured for the audiences of the two afternoon and two night performances, sponsored and recommended to all by the Galesburg Register-Mail. presentation "a modern miracle." The difficult role of the Christus is portrayed by Josef Meier, whose ancestors for generations have participated in the play. He was trained from childhood and assumed the leading role at the age of 28. Mr. Meier is ably supported by a carefully selected cast. All of the principal roles are enacted by professional members of the American stage. Several have been members of the cast for many years. Choral music and organ accompaniments will be heard at frequent intervals throughout the play, in the great anthems and hymns of all churches. Galesburg's excellent Community Chorus has been rehearsing diligently for many days to provide this feature of the occasion. Plenty of Seats Although there has been a Henderson St. Baptist Plans Anniversary Anniversary Sunday will be observed Sunday at the Henderson Street Baptist Church, corner of West North and North Henderson streets. Speaker for the morning and evening services will be Rev. Loren Dawson, evangelist from Virginia. A basket dinner will be held in the church's lower auditorium after the morning services. A singspiration will follow. The history of the church goes back to July 1943 when tent meetings were held at East Main and Division streets, under the leadership of Rev. O. A. Streepy. The congregation moved to 77 S. Seminary St. into a store building in September 1943. In 1946, the congregation met on the sec- floor of the IOOF building at the corner of Main and Seminary streets. The congregation's present building was occupied and dedicated Sept. 11, 1946. In 1947 the church was incorporated as the Christian Tabernacle. It was in September the members voted to become a Baptist Church, now called the Henderson Street Baptist Church. Next Sunday will be a double anniversary day. It will be the 17th anniversary of the present place of worship and the 10th anniversary of the local organization as a Baptist Church. The Henderson Street Baptist Church is an independent, fundamental church in fellowship with the General Association of Regular Baptist Churches, American Council of Christian Churches, and the International Council of Christian Churches. PRESENT LOCATION—Henderson Street Baptist Church, above, has been located at the corner of West North and North Henderson streets the past 17 years. Rev. William Thurber is the pastor of the church. The church's 17th anniversary will be observed this Sunday with Rev. Loren Dawson, evangelist from Virginia, guest speaker.

The evening stars are Jupiter and Saturn. Those born today include the former French premier, Georges Clemenceau, in 1841.

By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP) - Remarks that baby-sitters get tired of hearing: "It's such a bad night out that my husband and I decided we'd stay home, so we won't need you after all. I'm sorry you had to come so far in such a pouring rain. Here's 50 cents for your trouble." "You mean these high school girls have the nerve to charge 75 cents an hour for doing practically nothing? Why, I was three years out of college before I made that kind of money." This is our little son, Junior. You don't have to worry about him biting. It's his little sister, Cissie, who bites. Junior just tries to stamp on your foot when you're not looking." "I'm dreadfully sorry, but our television set broke down this afternoon and I haven't had time to get it fixed. I'm afraid you'll have to read the 'ittle dears to sleep." "We're running low on clean diapers. If you have to wash a few, you can fast-dry them by hanging them in front of the kitchen stove." . "If you get hungry, be sure and make yourself a sandwich. There's some leftover chicken in i the refrigerator that's been there for days and days—and I hate to just throw it away." "After you feed the baby, and cook the lamb chops for the other two children, and get the dishes done, I'd appreciate it if 'you'd just give a swipe to the living room furniture with a dust cloth.'* "Well, well, well—so you're the new baby-sitter Mabel was telling me about. Gee, kid, I wouldn't mind staying home myself and let you baby-sit me for a while." "Your mother told me you have an important exam tomorrow, Elsie, and I promised her we wouldn't keep you late. Jim and I should be back by 10:30 p.m.—-or only a little after midnight at the very latest." "If you don't let me get up and go to the bathroom, you'll be sorry." "Sorry we were gone so long, Elsie. Oh, dear, I seem to be short of cash. Do you mind if I pay you next week—or early next month? And don't forget to add on what I still owe you from the last time." / pemry~ 2, fayourmoughijt Appears Every Tuesday and Friday FOR PERSONAL ADVICE WRITE TO "PENNY" c/o Galesburg Register-Mail.
