DR. JE. THOMPSON PREACHED
TO GRADUATING CLASS
OTHER EXERCISES IN
. The eommencment exercises of the
Asheboro (St y Schools are in progress
this week. The baccalaureate, sermon
was preached last Sunday morning in
the courthouse by Dr. J. E. Thompson,
of Belmont, formerly of Asheboro.
DrUThompson, was pastorpf the Ash
eboro M. E. church for-fouf years and
he Is much beloved in town.
The scripture lesson was read by
Rev. Ira Erwin.
' Dr. Thompson tcok his text from
Second Peter, "Faith, hope, charity,
but the greatest of these is charity."
"Charity," said the speaker, should be
translated "love", tor . that is what it
The speaker began by saying that
he had chosen a rather unusual subject
ior ius sermon, " ine uaiancea nation".
He called attention to the necessity of
a balanced ration for the body, which
v- i i. L-.ui. ,i , r
uuiuui ue B.epii la neaitn wimoai .pro
tein, starch, sugar, etc in varietv. and
then showed how a balanced ration for
the mind is just as necesary. The mind
cannot be well-rounded by studying
mathematics alone, neither can it
thrive on English" or any other one
subject alone. All the subjects of the
curriculum have a highly important
place in training the minds of the
young for future use fait ss "
Dr. Thompson said that anv one
word in his text would furnish material
for a sermon, but that he would preach
especially' on faith. He said thaf noth
ing is done in this-world without faith.
The fanner would not sow his fields
with grain if he did not have f;ut'i to
believe that the grain would stow and
make a new crop. So it is with all-ow
lire's activites. .
A declamation-recitation contest was
at the courthouse last night, but the
courier went to press before eettinir
a report of the result , ' '
