WfflTERS FORUM By George B. Russ It was Sunday, a crystal dear day cross-country. Except for an icy bite in the winter breeze, the day, weather-wise, was a perfect conclusion to the 8-day, 12th anniversary salute to Dr. Grady D. Davis. The honoree was fit as a fiddle and ready for the action; the wear and tear of the past week, apparently, had left no traces of battle fatigue. He was sharp as a tack in a bluish gray business suit with a snazzy matching bow tie; skin smooth and glowing from a recent massage; and a smile sunny; enough to raise the hope of the most dejected.

YOUNG Fellowship hall and the kitchen buzzed with activity lone before the 9:30 Sunday School hour began. The Senior Choir was making preparations for its annual fellowship dinner and Dr. William Borders and his guests. A Christmas tree and ail the trimmings was an anachronism on January 11, but. the tantalizing fragrant odors of yeast rising dough, ice4 ham, poultry seasonings were with it now. Seemingly, the early morning hours donned eagle DR. WILLIAM BORDERS wings and flew fat toward the hour to begin the culmination of the 12 anniversary . celebration of Dr. Davis (1964-76). Theme: 'The Small ' Man w ith the Lion's Voice" -Foster R. IzL Dr. Davis' staff of associate ministers were in charge of the service; Rev. Lottie B. Kee, presiding; pulpit associates; ; Rev.

' O How I Love Jesus" the congregational hymn of praise set the tempo of this auspicious service. The eyes of most of the congregatants were riveted to the tall, austere, scholarly man wearing a pearl- white satin robe trimmed with a red scarf; the Dr. William Holmes Dorders, minister of Wheat Street Baptist Church, Atlanta, Georgia. Like the other persons making up his cortege, Dr. Borders sand the words of the spirited hymn: "There is a name 1 4 f DR. GRADY DAVIS The call to pastoral prayer was conducted by Rev. Lottie B. Kee. 'My Profile of Dr. Grady D. Davis' was portrayed by Ava Best. The introduction of guest minister was executed by Rev. Charles H. Kirk. Dr. William Borders delivered a brilliant message based on the subject "Adversities and Universities." In a conversational tone, the educator of renown, author, radio and television evangelist painted a vivid picture of the Negroes' adversities in arriving at the universities. "It was necessary for the Negro to get to the university. In so doing, he is in a position to help himself and , the Negro race. God never called a fool to do his work.' The soft spoken speaker cited Dr. Davis as an outstanding example of one who over came his adversities, completed his education in one of America's finest universities. "Davis didn't forget his adversities after he had prepared himself for a better way of life; he is also helping others find a better way of life." It has taken the prayers and ..cussing of our parents to get us through our adversities to the universities and we should not forget where we came from nor how we got where we are. Remember thy brother who is trying to overcome his adversities and give a helping hand. A few token greats arc not enough to say we have arrived and can survive. In all thy getting nevdr forget God our Help in Ages Past, now, and forevermore. . The Senior Choir's annual Christmas Fellowship Dinner orbited into a historical, event this year. W. C. Young, president welcomed the opportunity to host the pastor, Dr. Davis, the illustrous Dr. ' Borders, his many friends and the host of visitors who came to exchange greetings with the honoree and the guest minister.

Wright, a member of the Asbury Temple Methodist Church, and a 5th grade teacher in the Fayetteville Street Elementary School in Durham, delivered the sixth anniversary address for the Life Member Crusade Council at the Kyles Temple A. M. E. Zion Church last Sunday. Mrs. Wright spoke from the topic "Can I Make a Diference? " Her thoughts were based on the book of Esther from the Bible. She told the group that, ' With a concerted effort, we can make a difference." "If we can produce missiles, send a man to the moon, we certainly ought to be able to feed the thousands of young children in the world who must fight rats for their meals ev;ry day," she said. She said that man keeps his offsprings longer than any other animal in the world and that God expects us to do something with them. In closing, she said, Esther did not go at it alone, , she called all the Tribes together and asked diem to fast. She continued, "We must call in those who can help." "Our task is her here now; it can be done," she said. ' It will not be easy, but if you have the determination of Esther when she said '1 go in to sec the king, which is not according to law; if 1 perish, 1 perish,' then, it can be done, and we can make the difference." inventory0 jgk U:uuarache- e,iai fk,wW0 Jmiwk 1st Quality - - New!
