, BIBLE THOUGHT
Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledKe
of the Sin'of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the
stature of the fulness of Christ. Ephpsiaus 4:13, '
Only religion can kill war. There must be a new power of faith, a
new will to fellowship; a new dimension of understanding, and only
the very genius of the religious' spirit can achieve these results.

A REUNITING of the various groups. of Metho
dists in the United States in one great organi
zation mjfcins a strengthening of the active forces
of Christianity, not only for the home field, but for
missions in every land. '
At this crucial time when the very life of Chris
tianity is menaced, all communions are united in
heart against the savage threat of evil forces in
Europe whose purpose is to destroy the very fouiv
dations of Christian teachings and all belief in God.
One is reminded of a warning given more than a
decade ago by a great international statesman,
Bishop Brent of the Philippines, who served in
France as Chaplain-General of the American Ex
peditionary Forces in the World War. Noting the
growth of a militant communism in Russia and
Asia in the early 20's, the Bishop told a mass meet
ing of churchmen : "Christians of every name would
forget their differences and unite if they only knew
of the. forces that are working in great areas of the
world today to wipe Christianity off the face of the
The union of Christendom has been given active
expression in two great world meetings during the
past year: the World Missionary Conference in
Madras, India, and the . World Conference of,
Christian Youth meeting in Amsterdam last sum
mer. These meetings of all races in the bonds of a
world brotherhood voiced the compelling need of
a united front to meet every menace that today
threatens. . .
Bishop Straughan, addressing the "larger fellow
ship" of Methodists in Greensboro last Sunday,
called the attention of his brethren to the need of
the influence of the Christian church in the fields
of education and science, and other phases of life
unrelated to the church. . A
As the theme of unity takes fresh hold on think
ing Christian people, this new emphasis for Chris
tian study and effort will make clearer the larger
issues at stake; a world pervaded in its every field
economic, political, social, as well as personal
with the spirit of Christ's teachings.
It wasn't the 190-foot leap from San Francisco's Golden Gate bridge
that hurt Charles Dclps, St. Paul high diver. He injured his shin on a
rock while swimming ashore. His wife, Lillian, scolds him at a San
Francisco hospital. .
down their brilliant reds and gorgeous crimsons to
blend with the softer golds of .every shade to make
this golden world, suspended in a dusty hae. The
oaks are a deep bronze, with splashes of redder gold
of the dogwoods and sour gums. Maples run riot in
every shade of orange and gold to red, mingled
with the richness of the hickories. Sumac lends
still another tone of russet and hawthorne adds a
gay touch of red berries to the golden foliage.
Fields of dying grass, broom sage, cornstalks
and pumpkins with autumn sunsets add their riches
to this golden hoard. Truly a harvest of beauty
these fleeting golden days for the inward eye to
store against the coming winter. '
Western Carolina Teachers' College
TPHIS entire section clajms for its own and ap
V preciates to the fullest the Western Carolina
Teachers' College, with all that it has contributed
to the educational and cultural advantages of this
part of the state.
It is of interest to call to mind that this school
was the first, white institution for the training of
teachers in North Carolina. That veteran trial blaz
er in education, Prof. R. L. Madison, opened the
school in 1889, calling it "Cullowhee High School",
and announced that he was going to train teachers.
, From time to time the name of the school has
changed with its expanding development. In 1907
it became ''Cullowhee Normal and Industrial
School"; in 1925, the name was changed to "Cullo
whee State Normal School". Enlarging its curri
culum to meet the needs of the growing student
body of young men and young women the school
became a. standard four year college with authoriza
tion to grant degrees in 1931, under the name of
"Western Carolina Teachers' College", one of three
state supported teachers' colleges.
The more than 1200 degrees granted to men and
women since that time gives an idea of the wide
field of usefulness served. Beginning with the simp
lest equipment and less than 50 students the school
struggled through rears of poverty. Now the plant
valued at $1,500,000 serving 520 students tells a
story of brave pioneering and phenomenal growth.
Y "A Golden World"
"A golden world, a world in which the hills of
home . . . are wonderful to behold . . . lonely and
, haunted and enchanted." Then as the eye is lifted
from the printed page and this random passage
from Thomas Wolfe, . the golden world is here,
surrounding us, enveloping us in the poetry that
we cannot put into words.
Just now,: the fields and mountains are toning
