i Mt. Pleasant Church
Doing Great Work
The members of the Mt. Pleasant
7; Baptist church, (R) along with their
J pastor, Rev. J. W. Jones are rejoic
! ing over the great work going for
n ward. Since Rev. Jones accepted the
work two months ago the church
has been having services each Sun
day. The Sunday school under the
leadership of Mr. Vance Price, Supt.
" is growing in attendance and enthus
iasm and all the classes are active.
The pastor has just finished a study
! course on "Stewardship Applied in
S j Church Finance" by J. B. Lawrence,
" j which was well attended and en
-0 ; joyed by all. All four B. Y. P. Us.
11 i under the leadership of Mr. W. S.
11 ; Hunt, general president, and his co
' workers are pushing things ahead
| in the unions and the old time spirit
]is taking hold of each union. The
p : ladies in the W. M. U. under the
l "; leadership of Mrs. Forest Vassey are
j working hard making quilts for the
c i Alexander School for Motherless
j Children. Their all day meeting was
'"'well attended and the Missionary
l »jwork is growing. The pastor and
c i family were greatly surprised when
11 ; ihe church gave them a wonderful
e I pounding of many good things to
s jeat. While away from home the
: committee went in and filled th--
J kitchen with their bountiful gifts of
tltwo car loads of groceries, fresh
e j meats and live chickens. What a
- j happy surprise when pastor and
r . family returned home.
- J In order to properly heat the
s ! church and take care of the growing
lj services during the winter and sum-]
i j mer months the church is installing I
ija large pipe furnace that will heat!
i the auditorium and all class rooms, j
j The furnace heat is driven to all'
| parts of the building by electric j
i, power forcing the cold air out and j
the warm air into the entire build- j
ing. With the. thirteen pipe lines the j
air is changed every thirty to forty- i
five minutes, because it is an auto- !
| # !
matically regulated heat furnace j
with the electric fan power system ;
j which keeps the building correctly j
heated at all times. During the sum- i,
J mer the building is kept cool by the j
j use of the electric fan system that j
j keeps the air moving at all times, i
| This furnace will increase the val.iej]
lof the church property about one j 1
thousand dollars. In one day more j
than twenty men of the church came j i
together and dug the large base- \ •
! ment and the good ladies served j i
| and the great work started j
j moving ahead. At the last business j
| session of the church the members !
I adopted the Every-Member Budget ! )
| System and will run the church on j |
I the yearly budget plan using the J ]
! individual envelopes and subscrip—; (
tion cards in order to take care of J.
i the co-operative program for all j.
j missions and all local church ex-; j
| penses. This system has never before ;
i been carried out in detail, but now . ]
j with this system of every member ,
| giving to every object every week . i
! the church will be able to take its ,
; stand along side of all other Baptist ,
J churches and carry forward to a ,
great success all of its missionary
' work as well as its local church
|work. It is hoped by the time the!
j association meets next year the
• church will have a report both spnTi
; ual and material that will bring
. much joy and happiness to its band
iof loyal and faithful members. Rev. ,
! Jones, stated, "During my entire
i work as pastor of several churches.
!I have never found a more loy.il
•and faithful body of Christian men
j # j
j and women who so desire to sec the ,
; Master's work go forward. Their 1
•wonderful spirit of co-operation and,
j their beautiful spirit of fellowship
! surpasses all. The true Christ - like . 1
i love seems to permeate the entire -
■. body of workers. With such a mem
| bership working together, I feel sure 1
! # i
i that Mt. Pleasant Baptist church, ; (
;(R), will be one of the outstanding,
I Baptist churches in the Sandy Run j 1
•Association before long with a ree-j
| ord that will stand throughout all ■ ■
j eternity." The credit for all the good i
i work going on is not due to one or
; a few, but to all the active members j
i each laboring together with God ',
'under the leadership of the Holy j
i Spirit towards a single crown of;
; righteousness in Christ Jesus. Breih- j
ren, rejoice with us and continue to |
pray for us that the Head of the'
church will be pleased with our un
tiring efforts to send the Gospel to
: the whole world. •

'! SPEAKS AT COUNTY
■j CLUB MEETING
Discusses Tax Situation in State
G. B. Howard New Presi
J Spindale, Dec. 22.—The only way
,to reduce taxes is to reduce expen
ses; and the only way to relieve real
estate from the burden of taxation
Lj is to get the personal property on
.•the books, said Captain Peyton Mc
- . Swain, well known Shelby attorney,
jand senator-elect from this district,
| who was the guest and speaker of
• i the Rutherford County Club at their
I | meeting in Spindale Friday. Capt.
; j McSwain also discussed the proposi
-1 j tion advance by some that the schools
■! be taken over by the state; the
• j Workman's Compensation act, and
■ ; other matters.
;, G. B. Howard was elected presi
dent of the Club for 1931, and was
j escorted to the chair by Mr. K. S.
I i Tanner. Clyde Erwin, of Rutherford
i ton, was elected vice-president; F.
iE. Patton, sergeant-at-arms; R. E.
| Price, J. C. Cowan, Jr., and Terry
i Moore were elected as new directors,
i Immediately after the meeting the
j board of directors met and elected
j Clarence Griffin secretary for 1931.
j The president announced the mem
i bers of the program committee as
[follows: David Lindsay, Spindale;
| Dr. R. H. Crawford, Rutherfordton
;'and Dr. A. C. Duncan, of Forest
j The ladies of the First Baptist
j Missionary society served the lun
j cheon to about thirty members in the
| gymnasium of the Spindale House,
i After the luncheon the club was
j adjourned to the library of the Spin.
i dale House for the business session.
| The election of officers was held,
| after which R. E. Price presented
: Capt. Peyton McSwain, who spoke
jon a number of topics which will
likely be considered at the next
meeting of the General Assembly in
In discussion the proposition ad
vanced by the Tax Relief Associa
tion that the state take over the
public schools in an effort to relieve
the counties, Mr. McSwain declar
ed that in his opinion this could
not be done unless the state levied
a property tax for their maintenance,
which it had not done since 1920.
Capt. McSwain was especially
strong in his denunciation of the.
Compensation Act passed by the last!
legislature, which he described as j
being a most vicious piece of class |
legislation enacted for the benefit j
of liability insurance companies; and j
an act that deprives both the laborer
and the employer of their constitu
tional right to a trial by jury.
He cited and quoted from the an
nual report of the N. C. Industrial
Commission to show that under the
law as now being operated the in
surance companies were robbing not
only the laborer, but the industries
of the state. ''On page eight of this
report it says the stiite .collected
One Hundred and Twenty Thousand j
Dollars in premium taxes from the
insurance companies. If that is true,
then the insurance companies col
lected in premiums last year from j
the employers of .North Carolina the j
sum of Four Million and Plight Hun
dred Thousand Dollars; or more than
twice the amount ever collected be
fore in fhis state, despite the fact j
that » our industries were running (
scarcely half time during the past
"On page nine of this report, the
Commission says it handled during«
the past year thirty-seven thousand
three hundred and seventy accidents,
paying for medical treatment of
these cases the sum* of I 1 ive Hun
dred and Eighty-one Thousand Four
Hundred and Thirty-nine* Dollars.
This report does not show the a- j
mount actually paid as compensa- j
tion to the injured. I have asked the J
Commission for this statement, but j
have not yet received it. However, (
I am reliably informed it will not
exceed Three Hundred Thousand Dol
lars, or an average of less than Ten j
Dollars paid in each case." i
"According to this report of The
Industrial Commission, which I pre
sume is correct, the insurance com
panies of New York, Massachusetts,
