Walter Rosier, acting as toast master at the banquet, kept things moving with hte joke* and storie, mostlv concerning the pastors pr«s ent. He tra* aided Jn producing spirit of fun and fellowship by th song leader. Alvera Onntzert. 8t*n ley George, president of the loca league, welcomed the visiting youn people and paatora. and this wel come was emphasized by an origin* stunt of the St. Paul league. Mlnni Von Holton. president of the feder aUon. responded to the welcome. Af ter doing full justice to the bountlfu chicken dinner, the young people gathered for the spiritual feast. The keynote of the abundant Uf was discussed by Pastor C. Cess o Yorktown, who stressed worship aj the mainspring of the abundant Ufe since the abundant Ufe U not merel of this world, but something far grander and greater than physics existence. That the abundant Uf can be fostered by earthly blessings. waa the thought of the secorx speaker, the local pastor. O. H. Doer maun. He related the second part o the day* program to the theme o tha day. namely the banquet or din log. Wh«r we receive our detl food, and all other material gifts of Ood, with thanksgiving to Him. and whan we use these material gifts not gaiflshly. but also for others and in bufl&lng the kingdom, than we uee thws to build tat abundant life. Faator P. Henke of Ashton next matleit the part that study and ed plays In the abundant life eular education can enrich tt cannot change the heart Study oC.Ood'a Word waa aa tat means of building Ctetottan character and making ttte truly abundant and bteeaed. Va rteua programs of tha league were Nferrad to. and ihe purport of tha meeting in which they were then engaged was revealed to be just such an enrichment of Ufe. It waa then ahown what part working plays in building the abundant Ufe. Paste W. Streng of Hock Palls discussed 'work a* a blejiMng, not a cure*. And revealed how doubly blasaad ._ for the Lord and Mis Kingdom Laaguers want given a vision of tr work, not only in their league pwjecte. but in their congregations aa well, which should inspire them i work hard and work together for i abundant life. The laat speaker Pattor c. Wagner of DUon, spoke e» fellowship and fun, and the part played by It & building tha abun want life. This exemplified tha last •an of the day's program, tha fal- lowahip hour which began with sup- par and ended with the play given after supper. The speaker empha- • i the wards of St. Paul when he _ that all things were pc tyro to do. w long as they L sinful in themselves, but that all things were not expedient. Whan wa iinnm our fun and fellowship with Christian wisdom, they also help to buiM a fully balanced. abundant Christian Ufe. , SJtoteto) sf Officers An octet composed of St. Paul leaguers sang several numbers during the ccttm of the afternoon program, rhcl crcup Mniing was alas -e^Bjoyci—-ScJlCjVi.'itt.i!'* program, UM buslnc- i:"7'.'n? v»> 1V;Id'.~'UiuTitT» tag a p;.- I •>! d?r,ion-u-?uon of UM fount c'-vr or topi'.- <lven above.
