Rock U il Baptist Church, Chapel
Hill, N. C.. was the gu“st rpeaRer
for ‘-he assembly p r o g r .a m on
Monday, Januaiy 16, 195U. Rev
Manley brought a lasting lesson
to the toys and girls through an
illustration of a straight pin. He
compared the lives of boys and
girls with a straight pin, pointing
out that the pin is sharp, straight
and has a heed. The pin lias to be
hai'D and straight to serve its
Durpo.'.e. A pin 'without a head
would not be ot much service.
.All parts of the r'traight pin have
purpo.C:;. It we are to have a
worthwhile puipcse we must live
straight lives. Boys and girls can
live straight lives by being obe-
lient. truthful, honest and kind.
We can do the cjsrrect things at
ell times by using our heads.

Rev. L. Upshaw pastor of the
St. Paul Methodist Churcli,
Chapel Hill. N. C., gave all of
the high school students good
resolutions with which to begin
the new year in his talk, “Tak
ing Advantage of Your Oppor
tunities,” in the high school as
sembly on January 6. Rev.
Upshaw made brief comparsions
between the educational and fi
nancial advantages of young peo
ple of years ago and the
advantages of young people of
to-day. Rev. Upshaw stated that
the average girl or boy to-day
has a weekly allowance which
almost equal the amount of money
spent for food for a week in some
families of a few years ago. Rev.
Upshaw said that boys and girls
should learn to use their money
wisely. He als(3 compared the
school building and equipment
with that of years ago. Rev. Up
Why ! Like
I like the study of 'World His
tory .not because I have a “B”
average so far, but because I
am very intrested in it. I am in
terested in the 'background of
civilization; the story of man and.
his world and the many things
which have happened before we
were barn. The I'lsmes of people,
things, anci events of other days
are strange to us. It is here that
we can turn to history to help
us. Fortunately, for us, histori
ans have written;, down accounts
of many of the ispportant events
that have happened. This we can
read because histpry is the rec
ord of all that jman has ever
said or done ofMmportance up
to the present time.
I would like to. tell y.ou some
thing about two groups of people
that we have studied in World
History, the Egyptians and the
The Egyptians ,had many gods.
Each god was believed to be a
spec.ial protector. T here were al
so other gods whom ail the peo.-
ple worshiped. These gods re
presented the forces. of nature
s\ici't as the sun god. Many tem
ples were built for the gods.
