What The Church Expects Of
Its Pastor
Twenty-six suggestion? were offered
when the congregation of the First Bap
tist church here was asked to mention
some of the things which a church ex
pects of its pastoi The list is interesting.
It furnishes a basis upon which a minister
might well conduct his activities.
None of the suggestions was more wise
ly made than, “One who practices what
he preaches.” A minister should always
hold up the Great Teacher of Gallilee as
an example. It then becomes his duty to
live as closely as possible to the Master
and emulate His teachings in every walk
of life.
The church expects its members to life
what they profess. That is the need of the
church today. Members of th(- church pro
fess a faith in Christ, a hope of Life Etern
al. To be a good member, it is thus neces
sary to reflect in one’s conduct the
teachings of the Messiah.
We are always walking on firm ground
when we follow in the footsteps of the
Man of Gallilee. The pastor and the con
gregation of any church will develop
spiritually when the love of the Master
is paramount in their hearts and when
they resolve to practice the Golden Rule.
and punishing the licensed driver for any
accident which causes injury to persons
or property. In the half dozen states in
which such laws and regulations exist the
proportion of automobile accidents is low
er than anywhere else.
Automobile drivers are not always at
fault. While 44 percent of the persons
killed by automobiles last year were pe
destrians who were struck by car.s. nearly
half of those were killed by their own
carelessness, either in crossing. streets
against signals, crossing diagonally be
tween street intersections, or stepping out
into traffic from behind parked cars.
No sane person would thi’ik of letting
a boy or a girl handle firearms without
making sure that they thoroughly under

knew perfectly wmll how to handle them.
But people who shudder at the idea of
giving children firearms to play with
them run automobiles without any evi
dence that they have the necessary skill
and presence of mind and intelligence to
handle them safely. Ten times as many
people are killed every year by automo
bile accidents as are killed by the acci
dental discharge of firearms. We have

Doctors as Advertisers
An editorial taken from the Illinois State
Journal, which offers an interesting argu
ment in favor of advertising by profes
sional men, is worthy of the thoughtful con
sideration of professional men. It is logical
that the policy adopted by the Hudson coun
ty physicians offers a protection to the pub
The editorial follows:
“As a means of combatting irregular prac
titioners, the Hudson County Medical So
ciety of New Jersey is conducting a news
paper advertising campaign* It has an en
rollment of 450 physicians of good reputa
tion who are fully qualified to practice, all
of whom are listed in the advertisement.
“The organization has adopted a sensible'
method of protecting the profession and the
public from quacks and imposters. Persons
in need of a physician'know through this
advertising who, in Hudson county, are
qualified, recognized doctors. As readers
of the newspapers become familiar with the
list, fewer costly and disastrous errors in the
selection of medical advisors will be made.
“No ethical objection to this character of
advertising can be made. It follows the rule
which the Illinois Supreme court outlined
for the legal profession of tnis state. The
