This campaign will be put on by the Woman's Club and _ the town authorities, who are very anxious to clean up and beautify our lovely town. This means cleaning up yards and vacant lots all over the town. There is a town statute requiring all vacant lots to be kept clean, but there are few, if any, that are in such condition that legal steps could not be taken to hive them cleaned; but what the club women and town officials want is to get our people interested enough to get them to clean them up and then beautify their yards and lots by planting shrubs and flowers. A prize will probably be given by the club for the prettiest yard later in the summer. The town will provide any extra help needed to get the refuse carried away, and the mayor assured the club that if the women ask for help to get the work done, he will assist in any way. Some people who have vacant lots have said that they would pay •for getting them cleaned if some one would see to it If that is the case, report them to Mayor Coburn, Chiet of Police Daniel, or to the club offic ials, and they will get them fixed. Details in full of the campaign will be given in Tuesday's Enterprise. Sunday at Memorial Baptist Church Sunday night, at 8 o'clock, the sermon subject will be, "The Ascen sion of Jesus.' He spent forty days upon the earth after the resurrection, and then, went back to the Father, where He ever liveth to make inter cession for us. At the morning hour, the Lord's Supper wil be observed. This is one of our sweetest services, and should be well attended. The pastor of this church will preach at Pine Grove Sunday after noon. The pastor is very grateful to the people of the town and surrounding country for the royal support given him during the meetings. The pastors and members of other churches, the Federation members and the people from the rural sections. The faithfulness of the prayer meet ing leaders was very commendable. Those furnishing the music did their part faithfully and nobly.

Dear Sir: This company ia cooperating in the establishment of Main Air routes in various parts of the United States and lower Canada. The purpose back of this effort is the establishing of landing fields at frequent intervals along these main routes in onider to stimulate the use of, and demand for, airplanes for both private and commercial use.

Your community is situated in the line of a route proposed to reach from New York City to Miami Florida The initial cost for the establish ment of a suitable day field is not largo, and, as conditions demand, the equipment of such a field can be add ed to;. and in many cases, outside capital can be secured to assist in financing the project. If your community is at all inter ested, we suggest that a preliminary investigation and report be made with the end in view of becoming one of the Airports on the projected route. The expense for such report would not be large and we offer the ex perience of ou rorganization in that connection. Very truly, AIRPORT ENGINEERING CO. : Detroit, Michigan, April 1, 1926.

Williainston, Martin County, North Carolina, Friday, April 9, 1926 Catholic Chapel Car Is Here for Stay of Week Father David Sweeney In Charge; To Lecture Every Night PUBLIC IS~INVITED St. Peters Chapel car, under the di rection of Father David Sweeney, has arrived in Williamston for a stay of a week. This is one of three chapel cars in the United States, and is made possible by the gift of a California woman, who left several million dol lars for the equipment and mainte nance of the cars. In an interview with Father Sweeney he said that his visit to non-Catholic North Carolina is not for the purpose of proselyting but for the convenience of Catholics who live in places where there is ho church in order that they may attend mass and avail themselves of the op portunities of practicing their religion which would not be possible were it not for the presence of the chapel car. He also stated that he wished to lec ture on the great teachings of the Catholic Church, which have been so misunderstood, and through ignorance of the people such falae conceptions had been spread abroad. He will lec ture each evening at 7.30 o'clock, and every citizen of Williamston and the near-by sections is invited to be pres ent. n Father Sweeney is, of course, high ly educated, as all the priesthood of the Catholic Church must be, and is a man of liberal views, widely trav eled, and it is certain that his loc-. lures will be of much interest and will give out much information. St. Peters Chapel car is a splendidly equipped Pullman car; there are library and reception rooms, where ather Sweeney receives his guests; the chapel itself, in which is a most beautiful altar made to conform in perfect taste with thte furnishings of the car; berths for eight people, and a dining room. The car was built at a cost of fifty thou sand dollars, and has much of inter est to'those' who wish to visit it.

WEEKLY SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON April 11 —The Story of t'rea * tion—Gen. 1:1-3, 26-31. By C. H. DICKKY Without preliminaries, without in troduction, the writer of the Hook of Genesis starts knocking off nuggets of gold in the very first sentence. "In the beginning—God"! This is sublimie. it drives hard at the heu.it; it goes at the ro«ts; it delves to the foundations. Here it. wheie tho squabble's arl.-i aDout science and icligion. But why all Hie worry? Who knows just when Goil performed the moving events 6f this great poem, ami who know*, how 11»> did it? Whether He made our world in six days, or in six periods of time- -what can it possibly make, And- wrfWh» r God made man in a moment or during a process—who knows, and what pos; sible difference can it ever make ? The real scientists do not deny the existence of God—why should they? The real religionist does not deny the legitimate field of science—why should he. The scientist starts with what he finds; the religionist pushes on back behind whut is first found to what the j poet called "The first great cause, least understood 1 ." It is poiWiie for • good people to flit away valuable time here, and at the same time to miss the beautiful content of this, moving piece "of world—literuture. . • i"ln the beginning—God"—fix that inj the "blind of the 'child, and it will nJt easily give place to any other con ception. If God was in the begin ning working, creating, sustaining, shaping, and fashioning—if the heart gives assent to this, it seems that the fundamental has been fathomed. The creation of the first people is only a portion of th moving events of these first chapters in Genesis. Hut it would seem that all else had been done to make way for them. Whether or not only two persons at first appeared on the earth, or wheth er "humanity" wus created and brought to life may be, even with hon est souls, open to question. But, again, what difference can it make ? We are all here; and the fundamental ques tion now should be, "Where are we going" more than "Whence came we"? Right here in the beginning God starts a family. Ever since then the family has been the unit of society, and the pivot upon which the world's civilization has turned. God peopled the world und chose a particular peo ple for His divine family purpose. From this family the Christ was to come into the' world. God has always dealt with families. Frequently one hears the statement that one does not care for the Old Testament—that It is quite enough to read the New. Quite wrong. It is absolutely impossible, thoroughly and altogether impossible, for one to be any Bort of Bible student arid not be familiar with the contents of the Old Testament.' It ia fundamental to a study, intelligently, of the New. With out it, our New Testament would have no roots, no background. We are now entering upon a quar ter's study right in the beginning of things. The conceptions are glorious, the events moving, the people are thoroughly human. There ia great worth here in the Old Testament. Any person interested in Bible study Ne glects it at a very treat loss, indeed. Dr. George Collins of Raleigh was the guest of Dr. W. E. Warren last night. Misses Hattie Thower and Clyde Hassell heard Will Rogers in Green ville Monday night.
