Tar Heel IS North Carolina, tht
State of His Nativity.
AU of North Carolina' that Raleigh
onld accommodate welcomed, back
lone the 113th Field Artillery of .the
-Oth division in a series ofentertain
cents which swept the boys off their
feet and registered the tiapipness of
eYerybody m nypei uuie.-.- oeveniy-nve
thousand persons, it is estimated,
vere here for the events which started
yith the -parade and review - of ; the
regiment at 11 o'clock in the morning
and ended with the grand ball in the
city auditorium at night. Everywhere,
it was conceded the 'largest7 crowd
-that Raleiph has ever seen. ' r
It was North Carolina day for North
Carolina, through legislative action,
collaborated with Raleigh in' making
the home coming of the State's own
artillery regiment something worth
. The vtc'me that took place at the
Tair grounds after the ; parade . and
irhich preceded the barbecue-dinner,
vas just a crystalliiation of the emo
tions which had been current all day.

4 ' Explains Zionist Movement
Charlotte. Miss Ethel " Greenburg.
of Durham, representative of the
Zionist organization of America, ex
plained tne Zionist movement at a
meeting of Hebrews of - Charlotte at
the Hebrew temple. Will Weill pre
sided: In - addition to the " SDeech by
Miss Greenburg,' Mayor McNinch made
a few remarks. No effort was made
to organize a district of Charlotte
Jews, but Miss Greenburg explained
in detail all angles of the movement
for the establishment of a Jewish
homefand at Palestine.
She pointed out how the movement
is being carried forward by Jews
throughout the world and how it has
met with the indorsement of nations.
The Jewish nation would be protected
by Great Britain and the league f
nations.' The establishment of a Jew
ish homeland at" Palestine has been
made possible by th capture of that
country from the Turks by the British
during the war. 3

l. God the Creator (Gen. 11. 27)
God was before all things. God the
nncaused cause is the cause of "an
things. "Before the mountain were
brought forth, or ' ever r thou hadst
formed the earth and '.the world, even
from, everlasting to everlasting; thou
art God." (Psalm 90:21. Th iml-.

bruf e. He came into bern&r by a - sne--.
cial, creative - act of God, having been
preceded by , a -special council of the
Godhead (Gen. .1:26, 27). Those Vbo
believe this record, repudiate the Dar
winian theory,, of man's origin .as" not
only a .human vagary, but a -vicious
philosophy inspired by the devil.When
man came forth from the Creator's
hands he was neither a savage nor a
baby ; he possessed the powers" of a
mature man. As an example of the
maturity of his intellect he. named tho
animals as they passed before him
II. God the Preserver (Psalms 103:
All created things would perish were
it not for the preserving mercies of
God. It embraces the following grac
fous beneficial acts r ' 1. - Forgives ; all
Iniquities (v. 3). : Pardon is the prlmei
necessity- if v moral things are to; be
oreserved. 2. Healeth all diseases fv.
3). This refers to the healing of ths
hnHv Qni) tho i rmt v Ronnvntinn r?-nf
mon mnt-fli nofnro t nMenpv . .
Redeemeth? the life from . destruction
(v. 4). - Redemption implies the pay
ment of all demands agajnst the debf-
or, fjoa.' in unrist pertorms tne . pa rt
which the individual failed to perform.
and crowns him. .with, the full right of
citizenship In his kingdom. . , 4. "Sat-
isfleth thy mouth" (v. 5).. This mean:
that God satisfies all legitimate 4desire&
and thus- the youth is renewed. Th;
original capacities are restored to the! :
native" vigor. 5. Executeth righteous
ness and judgment (vv.r 6-14). T'
wrongs of life are righted and tl' '.
man is renevea or me. quraens wnicr
they entail. He extends his pity, to
ward us. - , . ' - . ' .. .
III. God Our Father (Matt. 6:24-3 V
Christ ' came to . reveal the Father
The'ubjects of the kingdom will lov
him as a child loves its father. '
1. Undivided affection (v. 24). The
child of the heaveply Father nakes the
unequivocal choice between God and
the world, for unless God has the first
place he has no place. '' .'.t' V;. ' r:'
.2. Not; anxious about food and cloth
ing (vv. 25-32). t (1) It Is useless (v.
27) Anxiety can bring nothing. "My
God will supply all our needs" (Phil,
4 :19). (2) It shows distrust of the
Father (vv. 28-30). In the measure
that one is anxious about these things
he shows his Jack of, faith in the abil
ity and ; tove of God. If we would
please God swe must come to hlra in
faith (Heb. 11 :6L The birds and, flow
ers shame us In this (vy.,26-28).r (3)
It is' heathenish (v. 32). ; We do, not
wonder that those who are Ignorant of
God . should manifest anxiety,; but for
his children to do so is to play the
heathen. He knows that we have need
f temporal things and if he cares for
the flowers -and birds he will surely
