Why Support The Church?
‘i'hi.- Xoith Wi'kesboro Kiwanis commit
tee on Support Of Churches has very well
answered the que.stion, “Why Support the
Church”, in the following article relea.sed
through H. H. .Morehouse, committee chair-
“The church is generally considered as
an institution of organized Christians for
the purpose of maintaining the teachings
of Jesus the Christ and pa.ssing them on to
“.As in all organizations there are back
sliders and hypocrites—but w'e all know
that at the core there are many true and
conscientious persons who are faithfully
and tirelessly striving to carry-on and pa.ss
the me.ssage to others by thought—word—-
“To maintain and expand this institu
tion—the church—should be the desite
and privilege of all citizens. Who of u.i
would care or choose to live in a countr\
w’here there were no churches? Yet there
are many—too many—who treat the mat
ter with indifference and simply depend
on others to support the church. This k-
more noticeable among men than women
and has brought forth the parody on Long
fellow’s P.salm of Life which goes:
Tn the world’s broad field of battle—
In the bivouacs of life—
You will find the Christian soldier—
Fiepresented by his wife.’
“The following excerpts from a churcli
paper are pertinent to the subject:
‘The church, like the human body, is a
rich and complex organksm. It is com
posed of all races, all ages, both .sexes. It
is directed by teachers, clergy, laymen and
laywom.en. This is wonderful. For it
means that each of the.se groups, each one
of the meihbers, will have different in
sights into the truth, and that each one of
,us profits and learns far more in the corr-
munity than he ever could alone. We are
richer and more complete because we arc
together. How thin my faith would be if
I had to rely on my insights alone. How
poor the church would become if only
those who think as I do could belong to it.
“There are people who claim to be
Christians but nht CHUROH-Christian.s.
Thev say they believe in Christianity but
not the church. How silly this is. What
would happen to education if people did
not support the schools? Education would
die in its large effectiveness. Schools, for
all their faults, are the framework which
‘It is true that religious people have
grievous faults, and one can spaclaliae hn
detecting them, with the result that he
becomes a faultfinder. Whereas if we
appreciate the Johns and Pauls, we may
hope to emulate them. We will find in the
church that for which we are looking:
either vices or virtues. We will find that
which we seek.’

To date it appears that the government
has not tackled all sides of the inflation
problem. Great care has been taken to
see that certain classes do not have much
extra money around, while some others,
particularly workers in war industries,
have been allowed to clamor and strike for
more and more money with the sky appar
ently the limit.
Some government officials who lean ov
er backwards to find excuses for the dirt;
done the war program by labor unions
howl loudly at the congressmen who are
asking that the farmer get his share of
Harry B. Caldwell, master of the North
Carolina State Grange and once a resident
of our own county, appeared before
OPA representative Friday with an elo
quent plea against tobacco price ceilings.
“In putting a ceiling on leaf tobacco, the
government froze the wages of “the men
who stayed at home and raised food with
out freezing the incomes of those in the
’ield of industrial labor,” Harry Caldwell,
of Greensboro, said.
Wages now stand :I00 per cent over the
1909-1910 levels, he conntended, while
farm prices are not in line.
Caldwell said he .spoke for the tobacco
committee of the State Grange and be
lieved growers would accept a ceiling that
gave them a wage return comparable to in
His remarks were illustrated by the
story of the Yale track star who went to
work on a western sheep farm for the
summer. The star turned down his bos.s’
offer of a horse to ride the range and
round-up the sheep, contending he would
run around and do it for the exercise.
The new sheep herder disappeared until
late at night when he walked in, out of
breath, to tell the ranch owner he had
rounded up all the sheep easily but had
had trouble with the lambs. “What do
you mean, lambs,” he was asked. “We
have sheep here, but not a single lamb.”
“Come on out to the bam and I’ll show
.said the track star.
The ranch owner went to the barn with
him, Caldwell said, and instead of findin..:
lamb.s, he found several jackrabbits which
the collegian had thought were lambs. “In
hunting for the causes of inflation, you
have caught jackrabbits instead of the re.sl
thing,” Caldwell told the OPA official.
LIFE’S BETTER WAY
WALTER E. ISENHOUR,
Hiddenite, N. C. .
We are never truly giving
.A.s we should from day to day,
Till we find that we are giving
Very much of life away.
So that we are helping others
Find the way of God above,
:Making of them Christian brothers,
F'ull of Godline.ss and love.
W? should vive them words of warninv.
Words of comfort and of cheer,
Never .scoffing, never scorning.
As we meet them there and here.
Helping them to live far better
Than they otherwise would do;
For to God we are a debtor
.As this life we journey through.
Giving of ourselves to others—
Time and talent, means and all—
Makes us friends and make.s us brothers.
Whether we are great or small;
And it’s this that makes us kingly,
.And our lives a ble.s.sing great,
Helping men in ma.s.s or singly
To a higher, better svtate.
God requires that we be giving
Best of what we have away,
For this is the art of living
Th;'t He plans for u.s es ch day;
And it makes u.s happy-hearted.
Nobly, godly and sublime;
Then when life we have departed
We shall enter Heaven’s clime.
But there’ll be a mark behind us
Pointing up the heavenly road,
Telling men that if they find us
Iney must reach the soul’s abode,
Where the best of all the age.s
Live and dwell for evermore—
Patriarchs, apostles, sages.
And our loved ones gone before.

North Wilkesboro, N. C
The Walsfa xeonion was b«)d at
Mt. Plesaant ehurch Sunday, Sept.
6, starting at 10:80 in the morn
ing and lasting most of the day.
In ■ spite of the very inclement
weather tibout two hundred fifty
friends and kindred of the V'alsh
clan- gathered from tar and wide
to renew acquaintances and to
have one more good time togeth
All the morning program was
taken up with a song service and
conversation. There were sev
eral quartets and song I'jaders
present. Including the Vaughn
Quartet from RhodhisB, the Walsh
quartet from Ferguson, and
Hampalton Jones from Honda that
rendered sevenal numbers to the
enjoyment of the congregation.
The meeting adjourned for
dinner at one o’clock, which was
served In the church. Invocation
by Rev. A. J. Foster. Everyone
seemed to have brought out an
abundance of delicious things to
eat and especial mention and hon
or is due to Mr. John Wakh and
family of Lenoir, who are reported
'to have brought eight well grown
chickens and as much other ap
petizing food In proportion.
In the afternoon session the
crowd began to gather as the
Vaughn Happy Four began sing-1
Ing, “Walking With My King.”
Then Hamp Jones came to the
floor, singing the well known
hymn, ‘‘Oh, How I Love Jesus”,
and the whole congregation join
ed in with him. At this time the
chairman, John Walsh, called the
clan to order. Rev. A. J. Foster
led the devotional by reading the
13th Chapter of First Cor., and
led the prayer.
The chairman called to the
floor, Finley L. German, of Le
noir. who Introduced the speaker
of the day, Hon. V. D. Guire of
Lenoir, a state highway commis
sioner. In presenting Mr. Guire.
Mr. German told something of the
life of Mr. Guire and what he has
meant to the well being of Lenoir
and the entire surrounding coun
try and to the state ms a whole.
Aside from being a member of the
.state highway commission, he w.as
for many years clerk of the court
in Caldwell county and promin
ently connected with the Ap
palachian Teachers college at
Boone. Furthermore he has been
and Is now a foremost business
leader of Lenoir, being connected
with several business enterpr^es
at that place.
After some preliminary remarks
as to his Introduction and referr
ing to the Walsh clan as being a
conr-'tructive force in American life
he branched out on the subject of
freedom and its application to the
principles underlying the great
task now confronting onr coun
try and all the United Nations.
He said that freedom did not
come to us in -America Just by
chance, but by many hardships en
dured by hundreds of fine ftimi-
lies Just like the Walsh clan. The
great challenge now to the Walsh
family and to us all is that we
must continue to meet theite hard
ships and overcome them if we
are to continue to have freedom
with all its blessings. We are
fighting for Chiistwnity. Mr.
Guire said, and in case we were
to loose this war, many of ii--
would not want to be living and
many would actually not be liv
ing for the people of Europe live
by force. In conclusion the
spe-aker said the, world had never
known such a crisis as confroni-
ing it at the present time.
