Analyzing this . sppjre-the-rod
philosophy, John K«;ki.',fdean of
men aj Appalachian §tate Teach-
College,. Boone, li agrees
that the view is generally sound.
Usually, when a, parent whips
his offspring he ...unconsciously
does jt partly as a. release for
his own tensions■ i and. 1 ' frustra

reasoning (even though difficult)
in nine out of .ten. situations
serves as a .more effective dis
ciplinary measure, t n 1
Bui there are exceptions, Kirk
states. ’ A parent finds 'it im

the view). out to
“test the limits” of, permitted
When this happens,! Kirk
agrees .with some psychologists
who actually prescribe '.a good
spanking to establish 1 "parental
authority and sharpen child’s
perception of right wrong.
Dr. Ernest R. Hilgar.d. .of Stan
ford University even-.suggests
that spanking may be more hu
mane than nagging the ; bhild.
Dr: C. H. Liu, : Chinese-
American, definitely believes
that immediate corporal (physi-1
cal) punishment damage? a child |
less than other method?. j
“A little slap,” Liu says, “may
be. relatively wholesome if it;
demands the child specifically of i
what it is he has done wrong, j
and having thus beeta punished I
he may be given the :! in’ipression 1
that now the episode wrong- j
doing has been wrMtep* off and
that no longer is an accusation
of guilt held against him.”
The Bible warns '"He that
spareth the rod hateth his son.”
(Proverbs, XIII, 24).
But there’s a limit tig the ef
fectiveness of corporal.: punish
ment. If used, it should* be ad-1
ministered most infrequently and j
in a firm but emotionless man-1

as the situation j

First of all, from the very bot
tom of my heart, in behalf of
my wife and myself, sincere
thanks to everyone who’s been
so nice to us. We’ve received
cards, notes and thoughts from
our good friends at the Eden
ton Baptist Church, and from'
everyone we know here in town.
These ‘ messages of condolence
on the passing away of my fath
er have meant a lot to us, and
warm thanks to everyone for
being so very, very nice.

seeing Ralph Bellamy’s great

the movie is even half as good,!

Today the object of our discus
sion is that of self-control as a
most desirable Christian virtue.
Why should we discipline our
selves? The answer to this
question depends largely upon
who we think we are. If we
think of ourselves as just an
o'he- form of animal life, mo
tivated by the great forces of
Nature, then we might do only
what comes naturally. But we
are more than animals. We are
human beings with spiritual as
pirations, and to deny this is to
deny our real existence. We dis
cipline ourselves, therefore, to
attain these ends.
No thinking Christian will

To*al abstinence has long ex

many reasons that make this
view a very logical one. In the
first place, drinking is fraught
with danger to the personality.
It is a psychological crutch of the
habit-forming variety. Many

What is the story behind this “For Sale” sign?
Is it just a house that’s for sale, or is this a tale
of happiness or sorrow—of success or defeat?
Let’s hope this story has a happy ending! But
this isn’t a world of make-believe we live in. God
piade us human beings, not puppets. He has given
us minds and bodies, nerves and muscles—and
weakness as well as strength.
Maybe the story behind this house is a happy
one. Maybe it’s a sad one. Regardless, the people
who lived here, like all of us, will be able to
accept both good fortune and bad if there is yet
another house in their lives.
The House of the Lord, the Church, has been
built to endure through the ages. Here we will
always have a home—during our lives on earth
as well as throughout eternity.

THE CHURCH FOR ALL . ..
ALL FOR THE CHURCH
The Church is the greatest factor on
earth for the building of character and
good citizenship. It is a storehouse of
spiritual values. Without a strong Church,
neither democracy nor civilization can
survive. There are four sound reasons
why every person should attend services
regularly and support the Church. They
are: (I) For his own sake. (< 2 ) For his
children’s sake. (3) For the sake of his
community and nation. (4) For the sake
of the Church itself, which needs his
moral and material support. Plan to go
to church regularly and read your Bible
