Larger Than Numbers,
"The average town and city in
America is controlled by the under
world element," Dr. Fred Brown
of Knoxville. told Rotarians here
Friday. "Not that they are in the
majority," the noted speaker said,
"but because far too many better
citizens do not care enough about
government to vote and exercise
their right to sec that good men
are always at the helm."
Turning to the other side of the
picture, the speaker pointed out,
"that officials, no matter how effi
cient, cannot do all' the building of
a community it takes everyone.
A good citizen must let officials
know their desires as well as ex
press criticism when need de
mands." "The average town in America
today also needs faith linked with
controlled energy." he continued.
"Right here in this community,
which is like an emerald nestled
among the hills, it is not enough to
just sell the wonderful air, scenery
and water. Not only must a town
build for business, but for homes
and good neighbors,"
Dr. Brown then brought in the
example of how the Pilgrims built
first their homes, then a church
and later schools. "The same prin
ciples stand today we have not
changed throughout the years. We
must still look to these three insti
tutions as the grassroots of our

Draws Large Crowd
"If civilization is to survive, more
attention must be Riven to home
and church," Dr. Fred Brown of
Knoxville, told a large audience at
the community-wide mass meeting
here Sunday afternoon at the First
Baptist church, where he closed a
week revival Sunday night.
The speaker told of experiences
gained overseas during the first
World War, and gave a gripping
description of world-wide condi
tions today, "as former allies stare
and glare at each other with sus
picion and hate "
"World conditions will not
straighten out, until conditions Im
prove in the homes. The pendu
lum has swung to the extreme, and
parents are beginning to realize the
need for the right kind of homes.
No home can be built except on
scripture conceptions," he said.
Hitting at divorces and broken
homes, Dr. Brown pointed out the
steady Increase of divorces, and
said, "I have no patience with ex
perimental marriages. There's no
place for experiments in marriage.
I had rather follow my four daugh
ter te the grave the te set them
enter Into such a life. After all,
marriage is an institution of God.
and should be treated accordingly."
The second trouble with home
life today, the speaker said, was the
lack of training and recognition of
constituted authority. "Among our
greatest problems today is the fail
ure to recognize constituted au
thority." In discussing the church. Dr.
Brown climaxed his address by
saying, "If civilization is to keep
off the rocks, it must be built
around the church."

church, presided, and was assisted
by Rev. M. R. Williamson, pastor of
the Presbyterian church, and Rev.
