SATOHOAV, JtJLY §0,1063 ALtON EVENING f ELEGfUPH PAfllftn; "Where Art Thau?" ILLUSTRATED SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON Sy Alfred J. Btfiithtf in this Garden of Eden was one tree whose fruit Ood had forbidden Adam and Eve to eat, on pain of death, The serpent tempted Eve to eat It, telling her she would not die.—Genesis 3:1-5. When the serpent Implied that the fruit would make her wise like God, she ate of It and gave some to her husband, Who also ate of It. And they knew good and- eVll.—Genesis 3:B-7. When they heard God-walking In the garden, they hid from Him in fear. God called them froth and questioned them. He found they had disobeyed Him, entlng tho fruit.—Genesis 3:8-13. God chastized them and, so man might, not. also eat of the tree of life, He drove him out of the garden, "to till the ground."—Genesis 3:14-24. GOLDEN TEXT: Isaiah 53:6. "Where Art Thou?" MOW SIN ENTERED INTO THE HUMAN RACE AND SOME OF ITS EARLIER TRAGIC CONSEQUENCES Che Golden Scripture—Genesis 3—11. . ny N, SHEER JONK8 OUR EMPHASIS in this long lesson will be on the third chapter of Genesis, considered by som'e the most Important single chapter In the entire Bible. Certainly its withdrawal would rrtake comprehension of the rest pf the Bible difficult, as It would make understanding b£ ourselves and our world. Here we have the introduction of sin. Until this point In the narration, everything has been perfect and beautiful; now come pain, sorrow, shame and death. The word "serpent" comes from an Arabic root word meaning "to pierce, to move or to creep." Eve's first mistake comes In talking with the serpent, in permitting herself to explain and ments, for the efforts of man to be more Godlike in virtue lead him to good, while his temptation to be more Godlike In power lead him : to evil. Notice that Mt is not wrong to seek the three things the woman saw In the fruit. — food, beauty and wisdom. The wrong consists In disobedience of God's will.. The great essence of man's disobedience here is beautifully discussed by Milton in his "Aeropa- gitica"; "When God gave (man) reason, He gave him freedom to choose, for reason is but choosing; he hud been else a mere artificial Adam. . . We ourselves esteem not of that obedience, or love, or gift, which is ot force: God therefore let him free, set before him a provoking object, GOLDEN TEXT "All we like sheep have gone astray;' we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord has laid on him the Iniquity of us all.—Isaiah 53:6. thus to argue with this temptation. In her argument she alters God's command somewhat by leaving out "every" tree and "freely" eat, thus overlooking God's generosity. She also weakens His original threat of punishment from "surely die" to "lest ye die'." Further, she adds a certain severity to her concept of God's command by saying that God said they might not even touch it, let alone eat it. The first recorded lie In the Bible appears in verse 4, in which the serpent says Adam and Eve would not die if they ate the fruit. The serpent's clinching argument, notice, is the appeal to human nature to be like God. Thus the seeds of both good and evil can be found in the same ele- ever almost in his eyes; herein consisted his merit, herein the right of his reward, the praise of his abstinence. Wherefore did Ho create passions within us, pleasures round about us, but that these rightly tempered are the very in gredients of virtue?" Immediately after their disobedience, Adam and Eve became aware of their nakedness and were ashamed, and they were also afraid of God. Notice that Adam, when accused, shifts the blame, directly to Eve and indirectly to G o d Himself, for providing him with Eve. God's judgment includes removal from the tree of life, thus allowing the element of dust in man's makeup to work out its own 'decay.

When Jeanette, 16, Roberto jERSEYVlLtte Central Light To Open Jobs To Negroes PEORIA, 111. (AP)—The Cen- ral Illinois Light Co., in an ngrcement that followed several days of NAACP-sponsored demonstrations, has consented to make immediate job openings available to Negroes. Terms of the agreement, an- lounced Friday,, also provide for trapping trespass charges igainst 14 Negroes arrested July 10 when they entered the utility's downtown building and staged a it-in. The agreement, worked out by the Mayor's Commission on Hu man Rights Thursday, stated that "there has not been proportionate employment of Negro citizens. "Because of this," it said, "we have tended progressively to erode the potential future leadership of the Negro in Peoria, and to deprive the entire community of its potentially best human resources." Regarding the picketing, which stopped with initial announcement of the agreement, the company said it "...recognizes that picketing is among the last resorts of the NAACP, when every other available method has been used without a given amount of progress." The agreement was signed by Rabbi Joseph Ginsberg, chairman of the mayor's commission; John Gwynn, president of the NAACP Peoria branch; W. W. Babcock, CILCO board chairman, and G. W. Hathway, the utility's president. The three-part agreement specifies: —Between the present and Sept. 1, 1963, oepnings normally occurring "will be filled by Negroes who possess the minimum necessary qualifications." —After Sept. 1, the utility will guarantee that equal job opportunities are available to all. —At the request of the mayor's commission the company will make available tests and applica tions for the commission's inspec tion. Leslie, 10, arid Elizabeth, 6, were born to the Platons, pictures went to Moline. Their only son was named for the American medic. Mrs. Platon, who holds a bache lor's degree in home economics and a master's in English and works for the Philippine govern ment, corresponded with Vernn reation directoi Ingelsort. arrangements. The story begins in 1945, after American troops had returned to the Philippines. Platon, who survived the Bataan Death March, was one of the Filipinos interned by the Japanese. Ingelson was a combat medic a corporal In the 24th Medica Battalion of the 24th Infantry Division. The division was sent along on a secret mission to destroy Japanese artillery In Ramblon City on Ramblon Island The city was taken house-by house. After the victory, American medics treated sick and wounded civilians as well as troops. "Then one day, in came thif rugged little man," Ingelson re called. "He was exhausted fron days of travel through the snaki and Jap-infested forests of the is land." "He told us his wife and baby were hidden high in the mountains and the baby was dying. He didn't dare bring them to us as he was marked for execution by the Japanese if he were captured." Platon described his baby's sickness to Ingelson, who gave the fighter the appropriate medicine- he annual bike parade at the Lions Playground In conjunction: tvlth the Jersey County Fair have been announced.

After getting the medicine back to his wife, Salud, and baby, Yolanda—now 18-^-Platon returned to his underground activity, taking up spying for the Americans. His activities often brought Pla ton to Ramblon City, and he took up Ingelson's invitation to drop it and see him. The friendship warmed, and de veloped into a musical duet, witl Platon at the piano and Ingelson a bass, singing old American fa vorites. This week's meeting was tto first since March 1945, when In gelson's outfit was shipped out fo the battle of Mindanao Island. The war ended Aug. 14 of tha year, and Platon was still a guer rilla fighter. "But each time looked at Yolanda, I rememberec the wonderful, big GI with th beautiful voice and the big heart I loved him all over again ani so did my wife." Perhaps appropriately, Yoland is now a medical student in Ma rtila. Bikes were judged hi three dif. ferent age divisions and official fair ribbons were given In each age group. Winners in the 5 through ? group were: first, Mike Parrtshj second, Kim Karushaar; third, Mark Kraushaar. In the 8-9 division winners were! first Charles K r u e g e r; second, Paula Prultt; third Billy Parrish; fourth Kenny Schell and fifth, Bruce Egelhotf.

While in Utah, they visited his sister, Mrs. Clarence White, in Salt Lake City. BIBLE STUDY Is Truth relative? Does it vary with each individual? Does it mean different things to different people? Jesus said we must know the Truth to be made free (Jno. 8:32). Peter said we purify our soul by obeying the Truth (1 Pet. 1:22). Jesus said God's word is Truth (Jno. 17:17). If the Bible means one thing to one person, and something else to another, then our conscience is our guide, and not the Bible. Yet the Bible says it is not in man that walketh to direct his own steps (Jeremiah 10:23). Centra/ and Madison CHURCH OF CHRIST Wood River Wayne T.
