CENTRAL GRADED
SCHOOL NEWS
We were glad to have Mr. J.m
Herbert bring Dr. Love of Raleigh,
who was conducting a revival at the
, Edgar Long Memorial Church, to
visit us and bring a message on
Thursday morning, Oct. 11th. Mr.
Herbert introduced the visiting
minister, after which Dr. Love read
th first Plasm, "from which all lis
Jtened to a beautiful interpretation.
;The comparison of a growing tree
to a man was made illustrating the
importance of a sound foundation
if life is to be full and rich. Nature
may cover the scar made on a young
tree but the scar may cause a de
fect inside and later the weakened
spot?,the unsoundness at heart?
may be the cause of its downfall
during the trials and tempests of,
life. The child's life may be weak-,
ened by bad habits which can be
kept covered for years but when the
tests of life increase, he, too, may suf
fer downfall because of early de
fects. As the tree bears fruit, so
does man. He warned the children
that many of them would fruit into
chaff without constant care of their
habits in early life, and left the
questions, will you? When asked
later in life to take a man's job,
will you be strong enough or will
your weakened life yield to tempta
tion and bring to you sorrow?
Mr. Herbert added the lesson of
ithe sunflower turning its face to
ithe east in the morning and to the
west in the evening. He urged boys
and girls to follow the example of
[this beautiful flower and begin ear
ly in life, and always keep their
faces toward God. By looking to
Him and worshipping .Him. they
would be like that real, good, true
and faithful tree in life.
Mr. craven conducted our chapel
j devotions Monday, Oct. 15, and
from the Bible verse, "it is more
blessed to give than to receive,"
jleft a lesson that should be a com
fort throughout life to everyone
who heard. The fact that God has
nothing to sell but is always abun
dantly giving was impressed and
[the truth emphasized thatvrlo mat
ter how much we give God we can
not outgive Him. The more we ln
[vest wlUi Him the greater our re
turn. Giving to God and to the
world of others about is is like an
, echo, it comes back to Us.

first month shows an enrollment of
505 pupils, with an average dally
attendance of 483, or 97.44%. The
