THE PRAYER CORNER
TO THE GRADUATES OF OUR
HIGH SCHOOL, MAY, 1923
Do you know what the word "gra
duate" has come to mean? Ask a
fond father 'or mother whose son or
daughter has just received a diploma
from high school what the word "gra
duate" signifies, and they will . say,-
"Why, they are through." Through!
As if education were a "Great Dismal
Swamp" and the girl or boy had just
scrambled out to firm land again.
A far different idea lies hidden in
die noble word, "graduate" -an idea
f the vast hill of learning, broadly
based on the common world of every
lay things, and rising by fair teivace
after fair terrace until it reaches that
golden cloud which hides from mortal
eyis the Thn.ne of God. "To gra
duate, " to receive a degree, is to a. -oohd
only one sl-p toward the u;n
mit. There tire many grades tip to
which we must graduate. It is a hill
!' many de-'-ees. that hill of learn
ing, and what are we to think of p-.-o-
pie who say if garduales. "They're
through?" A wrd with the gra
duate, of 2: --God's Word: "Walk
in b.ve. . . .Walk as children of light
. ...L'c.k carefully how you walk.

TRIP TO WINSTON-SALEM
W. S. Price, Jr., wife and little
daughter, Elizabeth, have just re
turned from a visit to Winston-Salem
where Mr. Price went to attend the
funeral directors and embarmers as -
sociation. The meeting of this asso-
ciation was held at the Robt. E. Lee
Hotel, which, from Mr. Price's view
point is one of the best hotels in
While in the Twin City he visited
the Moravian burying grounds, and
was very much struck with the uni
queness and appearance of the place.
Each grave, he says, is marked with
a flat stone (or marble) which li"s
at the head of the grave. Every grave
is marked alike, and the duplicity of
ach grave marking is something he
has never seen before.
