C Arlin Keydon in his morning ser mon. yestei-day in the first Baptist Church. "He helps people," he said part, "to save them from tha moral failure. Jesus befriende many such people in His earthl ministry. The fallen woman wh annotated Jesus in the house Simon the Pharisee was saved to new life. "Simon Peter, unstable, failin at the place he boasted of being th strongest, was saved, established b our Savior. The rich young rule forms a tragic contrast with th many whom Jesus helped. H seemed a success by superficial standards but he lacked one thing His money managed him and h •was a miserable moral failure Then,, there was the self-righteou man who prayed, 'I thank God am not as other men.' He made i Impossible for Jesus to help him. 'The man to be commended i the one who prays humbly an sincerely, 'God, be merciful to me a sinner.' All the resources o heaven are available in the for giveness of such a one's sin, o establishing him in fellowship wit* God and the bringing of the powe of God's spirit into the struggle 01 his side against sin and all the real enemies of man." In the evening, he spoke on "Ou Savior Who Calls You," describini Jesus as the "Savior splendid" wh succeeds in everything he attempts Reasons Told For Salvation Though it is contrary to all tha human reason might expect, the IWord of God repeatedly and ex plicitly declares salvation to be an •unmerited favor from God which i made available as a gift to all men laid the Rev. R. S. Seal, jr., in his morning sermon yesterday in Grace Baptist Church. "From the human side," he ad. ded, "salvation is not conditionec by any kind of good works; man's only responsibility is to believe in the Son of God by whose substitu- tionary death salvation was made possible. Naturally, one asks 'Why does God save by grace? Why are good works not required as a condition of salvation?' The Bible -resents a threefold answer. "First, men are said to be •aved 10 that 'good works' may result. From a heart of unbelief if is impossible for any man's efforts to be pleasing to God. "Secondly, men are said to be •aved for the sake of the benefits which accrue to them. Since it is not the will of God that men should perish to spend eternity in Hell, He has bestowed the priceless blessing of eternal life upon el •who believe. "Thirdly, men are said to be •aved to that in them God might manifest His grace. Though thii motive of God it •upreme in the salvation of men, it is usually passed over unrecognized. "God's greatest purpose in salvation Is nothing less than to demonstrate before all intelligent beings of the eternity to come the matchless grace which He manifested toward us in His supera- bounding love." Christian Way Is Discussed The Christian way is the only way to serve God, the Rev. W. H. Hedges pointed out in a sermon last night In Capitol Christian Church. "Proclaimed by the early Christians, he said In part, "the Jews thought this was blasphemy, the Romans called it inexcusable intolerance. Some today think It bigotry, but Jesus taught that He was the way. , "Peter declared there is no other name for salvation. Experience proves this faith of the early church is the only way of salvation. Christ is the gate to the Christian way. The gate is so narrow that pride, self-righteousness, all sin, must be left outside and on the inside is iS"S? £ eansin K through the blood or Christ. principles of Christ are the principles of the Christian way.

On payday nights Bisbee is a cay, free-spending town, populated by hundreds of persons who want baths, shaves, haircuts and other sundry sen ices, or shoes, shirts and socks, or even dresses for their women- animals. He requested authority to rule these settlers off. Experiences, Vicissitudes Were Many It would take more than a five- foot shelf of books to report all of the vicissitudes and experiences of the soldiers at this new frontier army post, but something of their misfortunes is reflected in a corn- Brewery Gulch in 1903 ... It was a legend even then. folk. It is free-spending from the farthest-up reaches of Tombstone canyon, where U. S. Highway 80 crosses famous Bisbee hill at an altitude of more than 6,000 feet, down to the Lowell and Warren and other contiguous communities. And it especially is free-spending in Brewery Gulch, which has gone through more than one heyday. Juke boxes blare where once irofessors played pianos. Maybe he grade of whiskey is better, maybe it is worse—there are few alive who can give a comparison, and perhaps their judgment is varped. There are eager merchants, an accommodating populace, beautiful girls. If Governor Osborn's effort to persuade Uncle Sam to establish a lermanent garrison of 30,000 men it Fort Huachuca is a success, Bis- >ee and the Gulch are likely to get an entire new lease on the payday ype of life, of which all that has lappened this winter may be only tantalizing sample. Brewery Gulch has little written history—most of what is told about it is legend, perpetuated by such colorful character* as Fred McKinney of the Brewery Gulch Gazette. But Fort Huachuca's story .. chronicled accurately, and dates to that March 3, 1877, when Capt Samuel Marmaduke Whitside, of the Sixth United States Cavalry, licked the spot where he would stablish a post for the protection if the settlers. » * * Sent By Territorial Military Commander Captain Whitside had been sent rom Prescott by the military commander of Arizona Territory de- lartment He had been given much atitude as to where he might put he post, as long as it was in the Huachuca mountains. H. L. (Pat) Hayhurst knows the tory perhaps as well as anyone. Let him tell it in his own language: "Those Damned Apaches" Were To Be Tamed Captain Whiteide's colonel intruded him to select "some con- enient location." 'Use your best judgment, but elect a location that permits of asy access of the valleys of tha onoita and Santa Cruz and yet permits control of the San Pedro val- ey, and is within striking distance f the Puerto de Las Mulas (vicinity * Bisbee) where those demand munication to headquarters in September 3, 1878, which says in part: "I have the honor to submit xxx The rainy season started early in July and it has rained almost daily since xxx All buildings in this post have been constructed of adobe and were considered good buildings until the rainy season set in." . From further perusal"of "the 1 records, it is learned that a previous military camp had been established at the vicinity which was known as Old Fort Wallen. This camp was said to have been established upon the claim of the Barbacomari Spanish land grant November 3,1879. the authorities at the post ordered for the library the New York Daily Graphic, the San Francisco Evening Bulletin, and full sets of Dickens, Thackeray and other books, including Bancroft's history of the United States. * * * Tombstone Made Self Heard By this time, rowdy Tombstone was beginning to make itself heard. The fort records continued to tell about Indian tribulations, stagecoach robberies, and frequent shooting matches in Tombstone, Charleston, and Bisbee. The record continued with memoranda on the pursuit of the! Apache to the final capitulation of Geronimo, and thus the frontier period approached an end. Leonard Wood Served There In the late 1880's there was an assistant surgeon at the post by the name of Leonard Wood, who was to climb high in the army ranks. With the hostiles pretty well pacified, the decade of the 1890's was comparatively quiet at Fort Huachuca; so much so, in fact, that soldiers were permitted to buy their discharge from the army.

Cate spoke on "Th Great Friend". "Just the thought," she said in part, "of someone who has loved u as a friend, someone who ha walked with us through the shado\ of some earthly experience, give us new strength and courage. "This service is dedicated to ou friends, to those present and fa away. Even death does not separat friends for the memory o£ thos who walk with us no more, remains to inspire, comfort and strengthen "In the arena of personal an human experience, this idea o friendship is expressed in many de grees. In trouble; trial or sorrow the strong arm. the gentle presence the assuring word of friends vir tually build a bridge over which w cross deep waters. "One is ever rich who has friends faithful hearts who stand by am believe in him. Friends dramatize ti. us the story of the divine, the na ture and character of God who i incapable of recognizing anythin; unlike His own divine nature an< being. "Back of the idea of friendship no matter how imperfectly it is hu manly expressed, is the divine idea "Back of the love, loyalty an faithful expressions in human form we look for and hope to find th all-loving and unchanging natur of God." Truth Termed Saving Force What Jesus teaches about th "New Birth" formed the theme of i sermon by the Rev. C. Vaughan Rock yesterdav in the First South ern Baptist Church. "Just as God made plans for th purifying of the heavens and th earth," he said in part, "He alsi made that plan for the lives of in dividuals.

There are two births, the fleshly and the ipirltual. By the fint birth we are partaken of our parents but by the. second birth we are partakers of God. One it of flesh, the other is of the spirit. "If language can be made t mean anything definite, the scrip lures teach an actual, literal new birth and not a change of the origi nal nature; not a moral reforma tion of the old nature. One coul< not use plainer language than the scriptures. 'As many as receivec Him to them gave Him the power to become the children of God, even to them that believed on His Name who were born not of blood no the will of the flesh nor the will o man but of God.' 'Except a man be born again he cannot see the king dom of God.' That which is born oi the flesh is flesh; and that which i born of the spirit is spirit.' ?

John J. Pershing on his expedition to Mexico to capture Pancho Villa. Then came the World War and the part the soldiers of Fort Huachuca played therein. After the war, this army post again reverted to an uneventful matter of routine duties, down through the years until the present national defense program injected new life with a modern building program at the lonely outpost established by Capt.

Gospel Need Is Delineated Exhorting Christians to "go out in the world unashamed, the Rev. Samuel A. Wright declared m nis morning sermon yesterday in Neighborhood Congregational Church at "in the g9 s P el ..°J Christ we have the salvation that will save this world." "Paul, like us today," he said in part, "must have been ashamed of many things of his day and time. But there was one thing he was not ashamed of and that was the gospel of Jesus Christ. "St. Paul had found something that put meaning and significance into the whole of life: 'I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth.' "We should not be ashamed of the gospel of Christ in its insistence on the tragic sinfulness of man and his desperate need of interior salvation. If we have eyes to see anything today we ought to see that for which the gospel of Christ has always been right about, man needing an interior change of heart. "There is no such thing as inevitable progress, as some of us thought a few years ago. Many thought that science, education and many other things might save us, bul what a foolish hope these things have turned out to be. "We need something deeper than science, education, to save us. These things are well and good but they do not go deep enough. We need the gospel of Christ."

PHOIMX 1941 " Lesson' Sermon Topic Is 'Sou/' "Soul" was the subject of the Lesson-Sermon in all Churches of Christ, Scientist, yesterday. The Golden Text was from Psalms 70:4. "I*t all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: and let such as love thy nalvation say continually, Let God be magnified." Among the citations which comprise the Lesson-Sermon was the following, from the Bible:. "For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually 1 minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be." (Romans 8:5-7.) The Lesson-Sermon also included the following passages from the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," by Mary Baker Eddy: "The various mortal beliefs formulated in human philosophy, physiology, hygiene, are mainly predicated of matter, and afford faint gleams of God, or Truth. The more material a belief, the more obstinately tenacious its error; the stronger are the manifestations of the corporeal senses, the weaker the indications of Soul. When once destroyed by divine Science, the false evidence before the corporeal senses disappears. Hence the opposition of sensuous man to the Science of Soul and the significance of the Scriptures, The carnal mind is enmity against God'." (144:4-13; 131:6-10) TelepKone 3-lHr America. Pastor Voices Leader Need Between the birthdays ot two outstanding Americans, "we cannot help facing the fact that God flients on has always raised up leaders for expenses, critical hours in our national life," the Rev. Dr. R. N. Merrill said in a sermon yesterday in the First Methodist Church. "When the unity of this nation hung in the balance," he said, "Washington arose to build a solidarity which has never been broken. When that unity was threatened, Lincoln lifted his hands to release the slaves and to bind together the union more closely than ever before. "These men were great enough to rise above the planes upon which they entered life and to enlarge their circles of interest until they could take in all our people. "Washington forgot his aristocracy and Lincoln the prejudices which poverty might have imposed on him, to become the friends and leaders of all our people. Here is • fine test of character and leader- ihip. Both these leaden now revered by all of us accepted their responsibilities with recognition of God's partnership. "Today, selfishness, partisanship and narrow nationalism threaten our solidarity.
