A REVIVAL NEEDE IN ZEBULON
o
Not only for the purpose of getting the
children who have reached the age of account
ably saved and in the church, but a genuine
revival of religion is needed in Zebulon. There
are many members of the churches who seldom
if ever attend their church services. There are
others who are not members nor do they go to
church.
W know members who take more interest in
their lodge or club than they do in their church.
Others seem as selfish and grasping as some of
the most worldly people. Still others use both
intoxicating drink and profanity. A man who
professes to be a Christian should either “walk
worthily of the calling wherewith he is called”,
or get out of the church. The line of difference
between the church and the world is about as
difficult to locate as the equator.
Zebulon needs a revival of the Christian
religion. The visiting preacher next week at
the Baptist church is a young man and a con
secrated one. He is scholarly and a good speak
er. We hope the people generally will attend
the services and help to bring the town and com
munity a genuine awakening and set the stand
ard of Christian living on a much higher plane
than it rests at present.
Pillip R. Bunn
In High Position
(The following was taken from
the Greensboro News Record of
May 28.)
The appointment of Phillip R.
Bunn to the position of assristant
manager of the Greensboro district
of the North Carolina state em
ployment service was announced
today.
Announcement of the appoint
ment was made by Manager Waldo
Porter after he had returned from
a state-wide conference of employ
ment service officials in Raleigh.
Mr. Bunn has been connected with
the Greensboro district office of the
state employment service since
March 19, 1936, serving as statis
tician for the district.
Prior to the time he became con
nected with the district office here
Mr- Bunn had worked with the
state office in Raleigh.
The new assistant manager, Mr.
Porter stated, will devote part of
his time to a further expansion of
the employment service program
in adjoining counties. The Greens
boro district covers Guilford, Ala
mance, Rockingham, Caswell, Ran
dolph and Chatham counties.
A more comprehensive program
for private placements of workers
will be made in parts of the.district
which hitherto have received less
attention that the more populous
sections. Mr. Porter stated Mr.
Bunn will do much of this work.
The new assistant manager is an
alumnus of Wake Forest college
and a native of Wake County near
Zebulon.

• SUNDAY BASEBALL
This newspaper believes in wholesome sport.
It is in full sympathy with the various games
played by our young people in gymnasiums and
ball parks. We are glad it is possible for Zeb
ulon to enter the league recently formed by
nearby towns. But it seems that few things of
a public nature are able to get along without
violating the laws of man or God. And so we
understand that there will be a public game at
the Wakelon playground next Sunday afternoon.
We are surprised and motrified that it should so
happen. Aomng those interester we under
stand there are church members. An admission
charge will be made to all who attend the game.
Our own opinion is that this is wrong and
should not be allowed. While the town Board
cannot regulate such, the school board can. For
appearances’ sake, for the good name of our
community, for the sacredness of the Sabbath,
we believe our people should see that these
Sunday baseball games are not played. Let us
have one or more good games on week days, and
leave off the Sunday games. Yet, we wonder
how many of our “leading” citizens will attend
next Sunday’s game. If those operating the
games charge admission, they might just as well
earn money any other way on Sunday. If our
people attend the game and pay their money to
see it, they might just as well go to a store and
buy anything they want, whether it is necessary
or not. Personally we are opposed to profes
sional baseball on Sunday and hope either that
those promoting it will discontinue it or that the
public will not patronize it.
We are aware of the fact that many will say
there is little or no difference between baseball
for pay and baseball for sport; but we believe
there is a marked difference. In one case the
players are out for pleasure only, and no one
profits save in relaxation and enjoyment. In the
other case business is transacted for a price and
the promoters either profit or suffer disappoint
ment.
Truly “the Sabbath was made for man”, but
he is required to use it aright.
