SPEAKER Unwritten Years of Cluist’s Life “The unrecorded years of Christ’s life represents a disappointment for many people, because there is no rec ord of His life between the years 2 to 12 and 12 to 30. Efforts were made in the dark ages to relate fictitious stories of Christ’s boyhood and young manhood. “There are three sources from which we can get material concern ing Christ’s youth and young man hood. First, there is the geograph ical background, and by geography, I mean the climate, minerals, and as tronomical data of that period. The hills and valleys in the Holy Land have changed but little from that day and it is reasonable to suppose that Jesus was an alert lad and would have noticed natural phenome non. “The second source is the home life of a pious Jewish household. The daily life of a typical Jewish boy at home. The festivals, the Sabbath days and the whole manner of daily life was undoubtedly interwoven in His earliest life. “The third source and the one which I shall develop is the Gospels themselves. Jesus was not avowedly a writer or speaker who said ‘I re member’ but in many, many of his examples one can picture life as it mu.st have been in His home or in that of His neighbors. For instance, His picture of two women grinding corn might very well have been from memory of His mother and a neigh bor doing this menial household task. “When Jesus said, ‘Foxes have holes, birds of the air have nests, but the son of man has nowhere to lay his head.’ He showed that he knew something of the birds and beasts. It seems so right to imagine Jesus wandering through the woods and forests looking for bird nests or the hole of a fox. “After Jesus became a young man He made remarks that show His in terest in carpentry as when He said to Simon, ‘Thou art a rock and on this rock I will build.’ Thus He changed Simon’s name to Peter, which means rock On another oc casion, He said, 'Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy burden ed and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn of Me for My yoke is easy and My burden is light.’ A carpenter’s test for a skill fully fashioned ox yoke is that it is easy and makes the burden lighter to pull. “Many people ivonder if Jesus was normal and played as other chil dren did. There is nothing to deny that he enjoyed games and youthful experiences with children of His age. I wonder where He learned His domestic lessons for He certain ly must have gained some knowledge of cooking for did He not have a fire and ‘bread and fish thereon’ for the fishermen coming in at dawn. I believe He learned this as a boy, possibly in some such manner as the Boy Scouts do today. “Throughout the whole Bible you can find illusions to happenings which would normally occur in the life of a child or youth and I believe you could add page after page of pictures which would reconstruct the life of Jesus which is not told in words.” DRUGGISTS MEET IN WINSTON-SALEM Salem Hostess to Wives The North Carolina Pharmaceuti cal Association held its 56th meeting in Winston-Salem from 13th to the 15th of May. The meeting was pre sided over by E. F. Himms of Char lotte, who is tho president. Salem College and Mrs. Rondthaler entertained the Druggists’ wives at tea on Tuesday at 4 o’clock. After the tea the ladies made a tour of the Salem campus. YOUNG PEOPLE OBSERVE COVENANT DAY AT HOME CHURCH Dr. Myers Closes Services The Covenant Day for Young Peo ple was observed Sunday, May 12, in a Lovefeast and Holy Commun ion Service at the Home Church. Our college girls were invited, and those many who attended the serv ices received a blessing from them. Dr. Myers, pastor of the First Pres byterian Church of Greensboro, who was the speaker every night last week at the special services, was also the speaker on Sunday at the Home Church. In the morning service, he used as his text the 22nd Chapter of Genesis in which God asks Abraham to give up his son Isaac as a sacri fice to Him. The subject of the sermon was “Giving God our Best.” God always calls upon us to give Him our best—but somehow wo have formed the habit of giving him only the fragments of our time —' per haps a few minutes at the end of the day when our minds and bodies are weary with the day’s work. If we would put God first in every thing^ and sacrifice little pleasures in order to serve Him, we would find that He ;rej)pys in full measure, “pressed down and running over.” At the Lovefeast Service in the afternoon, Dr. Myers challenged us, as young people, to stand up for what is right, and to put a wide margin between the questionable and the unquestionable — and not to see how close we can come to doing wrong, without actually getting harmed, but to see how far we can stay away from it. In order to have power against sin and evil, we do not have to have personal experience with (CONTINUED ON PAGE THRKE) MRS. RONDTHALER SPEAKS INjVESPERS Lovely Mother’s Day Service On Sunday evening. May 12, a Mother’s Day service was held in “Y” Vesi>er9 at which Mrs. Rond thaler, our College Mother, spoke. Pansies were given to everyone at the door. Erika Marx, who presided, opened the service with these words; “O come lot us worship and bow down . . . God is a Spirit, and they that worship Him, worship Him in Spirit and in Truth.” James Bray sang a solo, and Arnice Topp read the scripture which is found in Proverbs 31;10-31. In beginning her talk, Mrs. Rond thaler became a symbol for our moth ers who could not be there. She said that we take our mothers too much for granted, and regard them as some kind of mechanical instrument which always mends our clothes, cooks our food, finds our lost articles, and is always on hand when needed. We think that our mothers know we love them, but how much more would it brighten up their lives if we told them in so many words that we love them. Sometimes a little wall of stiffness grows up between mother and daugh ter, perhaps due to some conflict dur ing adolescence, or to some misun derstanding over what wo think are our rights. This can be broken down by forming a close friendship with mother—and this friendship is form ed in the same way as your girl friendships are formed—by confiding (CONTINUED ON PAGE FOUR) REGISTRATION Miss Blair has announced that registration will be held this week. All students expecting to return to Salem are asked to arrange their schedules and file their cards in the Registrar’s office as Boon as possible. DR. SCHWARZE TELLS OF TRIP TO NICARAGUA Reviews Work With Creoles And Indians Dr. Edmund Schwarze, a member of the board of trustees of the col lege, has just returned from a seven week’s visit to Nicaragua, where he was sent by the Moravian Mission ary Board to visit the missions and to work among the Creoles and In dians. Dr. Schwarze stated that he had employed all modes of travel, from mule-back to airplane. His work consisted in visiting one Indian vil lage after another. He was impress ed with the neatness of the houses and the orderliness of the villages, and especially with the good-will of the Indian people, which reflected the splendid work of the mission aries. During his visit, Dr. Schwarze baptized many Indian babies. The Indians were from the Miskita, Su- mu, and Rama tribes. These In dians diflfer from the Indians that we know, in that they are not much given to handiwork, and not very industrious; but their manner of liv ing is very much like that of the American Indian. They live in villages of about fifty or a hundred houses, which are built up to a convenient height for work ing, and topped with clay hearths. Nature is good to the Nicaraguan Indians, for in a single village may 1)0 found breadfruit trees, cocoanut palms, orange and grapefruit trees, and banana trees. It is easy to grow cassava there (cassava is a starchy vegetable, somewhat like the potato), so with little exertion the natives are able to get plenty of food They also catch many fish in nearby streams. “The Indians are friendly,” said Dr. Schwarze, “and they seem to ap preciate the coming of visitors. Lit tle children ran up to us and gave us both hands to shake, and often when we were leaving a village we could look back and see the entire population assembled waving good bye to us.” Dr. Schwarze admired the way the missionaries had worked with the people. Ho said that they had only to ring the bell in any village church, and within half an hour the church was filled with villagers. The lands upon which these In dians live were granted them a good many years ago by treaty. The tribes each have a head man who holds the land agreement, but these leaders are no longer called chiefs. The tribes are under the protection of the government. It was pleasing to Dr. Schwarze to hear the Moravian hymns sung and the officers of worship read in the Indian tongue, although he could not understand all that they were saying. Dr. Schwarze stated that he felt that he had gained an insight into the missionary life and work ifn Nicaragua and that he was much im pressed with the worthwhileness of it. He took hundreds of pictures during his journey, and has very graciously promist^d to show them to the college students and faculty “if they turn out well.” FRENCH CLUB MEETS AT CAMP HANES On Thursday, May 0 at 5 o’clock, the French Club motored to Camp Hanes for a picnic.

Brahms B. C. Dunford, Jr. DR. GARRISON PSYCHOLOGY CLUB SPEAKER The Psychology Club held its monthly meeting, Tuesday night. May 14, jn the recreation room of Louisa Wilson Bitting Building. Dr. K. C. Garrison of North Carolina State College was the guest speaker. Ho discussed interestingly, the pre valent problem, “ Junevile’crime.” In his lecture Dr. Garrison reported that the average ago of criminals in the United States is sharjily drop ping. Adolescence is the ago when the child can be lost by crime or saved by church and family influ ences. Then it is our duty to help the child of this age use his leisure hours profitably and thus have no time to spend in Juvenile delinquen cy. Schools should teae.h right at titudes and through these make good morals become habits. Leisure time should be employed in organiied play and recreation which would be a suitable cutlet for children's energy. In this way the United States might save the 13 billion dol lars spent annually because of crime, and 18 year old boys and girls would be CBgaged in profitable wory and play.
