APRIL 13. 1923 BIBLE CLASS 1 BANQUETS OWN FRIDAY EVENING Dr. J. A. Sharpe Makes' Principal Address?All churches represented. The Murphy Men's Bible Class banqueted seventy-five of it* members and frichds last Friday niRht at the assembly hall of the Library, from 7 t?> 10 o'clock. President J. A. Sharpe of Yours Harris Coll -pe. Younp Harris, (la., made the prn, ?'IdrpM> tnlcinv as hia theme. ''Service." Mr. J. H. Hanxoton, President of the class, acted as Toastmnster. The ladies of the Methodist Church preriarnS and si'rvoH th^? hnncuivt. a *hrce course dinner. Ac th? conclusion of the first course, a male quartet, composed of Messrs. Dav<lson. Daniels, Abbott and Axley, scrip two numbers. President Hampton, of the class. Mated that the purpose of the banquet was not only to pet the nicm! hers of the clgsp together, hut to pet ail men in the town not connected 1 I with a Sunday School to join their class. It was not a denominations? meeting. There were representatives present from all the churches and some wh?, are not affiliated with any church. Mr. M. \Y. Bell, of the Pre hytcrian Sunday School and Mr. J. M. Stoner, of the Baptist Sunday School, spoke briefly, wishing the Bible cla.-s Godspeed in the work that it was trying to do, which Dr. Sharpe was introduced Dr. Shurpv told his hearers that one Jid 'not realize the full meaninp of life until he had learned the meat;i itig of service. "The world war I shocked m%ny of us," said he, "and many of us were shockeiL.^fittr^ttW"* teai.zation of what service means." Further on in his address he took I occasion to explode the oft quotca ineory that the world owes everyone a living. "The world doesn t owe us anything," said Dr. Sharpe, "but we owe society, the world, a life. Everybody owes everyoody else service and in proportion as we 1 K'Ve this service, do we get a living. Incidentally, Dr. ^ referred to tiie fine spirit displayed at the nanquet and m the town, and told ...? ih-? K . ? ,? a town anywhere that had greaser po.siUiliUca than Murphy, uod he .-aid he expected these would be reai, ized on within the next few years. The absence of Rev. M. B. Ciegg. pastor of the Methodist Church and 1 teacher of the class, aione marred the occasion. On every hand regret I was expressed because of his ;*b! sence. He was culled to Rutherford i College Thursday to conduct the funi tral services of a friend and was ' unable to get back for the banquet. Mr. Clegg organized this class some j months ago and its splendid growth ' is largely due to his efforts as teacher and pastor. Some of the results oi his work were seen in the spiendid gathering at the library Friday night. The gathering was dismissed short !y before ten by the singing in concert of "Abide With Me."
