Mrs. Fletcher’s light shines too
brilliantly to be hidden under a'
bushel. Yet there is no spot in,
the Sbepard-Pruden Library bet-,
ter qualified to hide an object,
than the corner chosen to hang
the Inglis Fletcher Memorial
Plaque. It is unfortunate that 1
this unintentional blunder has
been made, but it' is a situation
that can and should be remedied.
The plaque is placed on the wall,
immediately to the left on enter
ing the front door, and partially
hidden in shadow. It wouldn’t
occur to anyone to look sharply
to his left on stepping over th'e
threshold, if he were looking for
the plaque; for it is instinctive
to continue walking when enter
ing a door, at least for some
distance. That was my experi
ence. I walked through the
*, door, on into the hall, and

searched the building for quite]
a while in an effort to locate J

j ask the librarian where it may j

I when she pointed it out to me—|
placed,, in my opinion, in the]
I most unlikely and most undesir-1
able spot in the whole library.

PERSONAL NOTE: When this

not to accept a cookie if I were
offered one ... I still can’t
figure out why he refused —I
usually have to fight ’em off

I The Power Os Prayer
I By TERRY JONES
"And I say unto you. Ask- and it
shall be given you; seek, and ye
shall find; knock, and it shall
be opened unto you." Luke 11:9.
"And whatsoever ye shall ask
in my name, that will I do, tha:
the Father may be glorified in
the Son." John 14:13.
During this season of the year
when many churches are hold
ing revivals, prayer should be
filling the air from earnest
nearis and minds. Surely many
prayers are being made jiut one
may. wonder if these prayers are
coming from earnest hearts.
When people pray for such
things as loved ones, revivals,
lpst souls and the world crisis
do they truly expect an answer
irom God? Surely God wouldn’t
tnswer a prayer that didn’t ex
pect an answer.
The prophet Elijah showed
treat faith in God for an answer
o prayer as he called the chil
dren of Israel to Mt. Carmel for
a contest. It was to be decided
who was God —Jehovah ar Baal.
Elijah proclaimed, “the God that
answereth by fire let him be
God.” The great contest pro
ceeded as the offering was
placed on the altar and the four
hundred and fifty prophets of
Baal cried unto their god. They
started that morning and rante 1
and raved until noon. At noon
Elijah mocked them by telling
them to cry louder maybe their
god was oil a journey, or asleep
and couldn’t hear them. The
prophets of Baal then offered
their own blood by cutting them
selves, but still no fire from
Then Elijah’s turn came to
try. He took twelve stones and
built an altar in the name of
the Lord; and made a trench
about the altar, and poured
barrels of water on the altar
until even the trenches were
filled. After this with great
faith Elijah called unto God to
let the people know that He was
the one true God. Suddenly
fire fell from Heaven and con
[ sumed the sacrifice, the wood,
the stones, the dust and even
the water that was in the

trench. The people fell on their
facet and acknowledged the Lord
Our whole world needs fire:
from Heaven in the form of a
revival. Won’t you pray in the
name of Jesus for our world, for
our revivals, for a lost friend
and for yourself. But, first of I
all get right in the sight of God 1
yourself. Expect an answer
from God then you will rejoice
in the results of the Lord. Seek
and ye shall find. I
