Since connected with Chowan College, Mr. MeCready has preached at many churches In this Brea. Throughout our state, belfotial musics is being heard this Ipilnth, - as regional choir festivals are held. At Chowan College on a recent night several children’s choirs were included in a pro gram given toy various churches of the surrounding section#? Few of the boys and girls who are members of these choirs Rea lize how much some day they may prize and cherish the experi ence they are now- having 'Mem ory in the years ahead wilfrfeng back beautiful melodies, and great words of Scripture and of sacred song will come like? angels to their aid in times of need. A stranger had just registered eat the largest hotel ip one of reNorth Carolina’s leading cities. The manager, a plump and pleas ant man of middle age, noticed his signature. “That name of yours," he said, “interests me.” He went on, to \ ask whether the man was by chance related to a minister of the same last name whom h% had known years before. ‘Yes—somewhat,” replied the' guest; “he was my father.” 1 “Really,” exclaimed the mana-| ger. “Well, I sang in the boys’l choir in his church.” Then, not ing the interest in the ,other’s face, he asked, “Have you a few minutes? I’d like to show you something.” He led the' way to the elevator, while a clerk took over at the desk. As they were carried upward, the hotel man continued the con versation. “I prize very much,” , he said, “what I am about tdj;Show ! you.” ■ i In a few moments they enter ed his apartment, and' the'mana ger showed him a quiet ."nook, where a solitary picture was’plac ed.

One of the marked developments of our day is the promotion of mus ic in the church’s life. And' the maintenance of choirs for chil dren and youth has a purpose that takes in the entire congregation. The motto of the famous West minister Choir College at Prince ton is a vefse from the Bible: “Let ALL the people praise Thee.” A wonderful thing takes place in a child’s life when music at its best is given a chance to play its part during his impressionable years. The youngster becomes aware of the sweetness and joy which belong to true religion, and the reverence which goes with genuine worship. He comes to understand the great words writ ten of old, “O, worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.” In a noted church in New York City the huge pipe organ is lo cated partly by the choir stalls and partly in the rear of the edi fice. Across the base of the lat ter portion are words from the l last Psalm, written in letters of | gold: “LET EVERYTHING THAT (HATH BREATH PRAISE THE LORD.” If those words may be applied to a pipe organ, greatest of wind instruments, their direct and highest application is to human beings God’s children, into whom He has breathed the breath of life. VFW Hot Line] Post 9280 By J. NASH r* This is the first issue to feature the “VFW Hot-Line” column from Veterans of Foreign Wars, William H. Coffield, Jr., Post No. 9280.

After the nominations are closed a list of candidates will be announced both through this newspaper and by radio.

There was those that tried this delicacy for the first time and vowed to help have this treat more often.

The commander urged all Posts to continue the membership drive and to give all eligible vet erans a chance to become mem bers of the American Veterans of Foreign Wars. He spoke out against certain elements in Wash ington who are trying to elimin ate veterans’ benefits. There are nearly 16 and one-half million American veterans, some dis abled. Legislation must not be allowed that will eliminate any of the few benefits now afforded veterans.
