Of St. Paul
“We must not reach beyond
that we can see. Think as far
' as you can and reach the rest of
the way with faith.”
These were the words of the
Rev. Leon Russell, pastor of St.
Paul Methodist Church, at
Sophomore devotional a few days
Mr. Russell pointed out that
you can’t see love and can’t tell
what life is, but you know it is
present. It is the same way with
Christ; you can’t see him.
We discover God by the exer
cise of faith. If a thin^ cannot be
done, then only faith can do it,
the speaker said. ^
Betty Denmark sang, “This is
My Father’s World ” accompanied
by Audrey Garris.
Ray Bryan, vice president of
the class, introduced Mr. Russell.

short' and so till next month, Can
You Take It?
By Billy Winslow
There is a famous poem (at
least it’s supposed to be famous)
that starts out “As I pondered
weak and weary.” Well, that’s
exactly the way I am now. It’s
quite a job to write a feature, es
pecially one that’s good enough to
be published in the Hi News.
(don’t laugh.) That is why I am
pondering so now.
I have lunch second lunch per
iod and have just gotten through
eating, so you know without any
further explanation why I am
weak. As for being weary, you
might be; or if not ,ask one of
the boys who play softball at
lunch period how weak they are
when they finish. You could get
tired just watching them play. If
you don’t believe me, watch them
some day. You get to the softball
field by going straight by the Me
chanical Drawing room.
Now you know why I am pon
dering weak and weary. In case
you are interested in the quoted
poem, it’s Edgar Allan Poe’s “Rav
en.” Try reading it sometime.
