It did not have the sup port of some of the nations that should have been in it. There were disputes in its assemblies from the beginning. But how much better to have those disputes in a council chamber than on a battlefield," pointed out Mr. MacBlain. The speaker then referred to the doctrine of the inevitability of progress and the giddy years that followed in this country, when there were "two cars in every gar age and enough left over to supply the rest of the world." "Do you remember the closing of the decade and the opening of the next? Something sinister be gan to creep in to mar the beauty of the scene.

"Man Without God Will Lose the Day," Says As sistant Pastor Of St. John's. "Only once irC the history of the world was a guard ever placed be fore the tomb of a dead man. Only once in the scrolls of time has it ever been recorded that a stone was rolled before a grave to pre vent the escape of a corpse, and that was on Good Friday," said Father V. J. Mahoney, of St. John's Catholic church, here on Tuesday morning in the opening remarks of a talk he made on the Armistice Day program. "But we in our day have lived to see that scene re-enacted. The modern Pontius Pilate across the sea has proclaimed that Christiani ty is dead; that Democracy is dead. A truard has been placed over the tombs of the fallen nations; the Nazi party is convinced that the adoration of race has supplanted the adoration of God. And if all this be true, then those honored dead whose memory we venerate this morning have died in vain. Theirs was a useless sacrifice for their cause has been lost. But we must not forget Good Friday," he continued. He paid a tribute to the heroes of the last World war and to the mothers who gave their sons in the supreme sacrifice. He spoke of how Christianity must rise above all else, for in the end God must triumph. "In the meantime, there comes to us across the seas a voice from crosses row on- row, and the cry of the slain lings in our ears: "Take up our quarrel with the foe; to you from failing hands we throw the torch; be yours to hold it high if ye break faith with us who die I The struggle now is not only be tween Democracy and Totalitarian ism: it is more than that; it is between comradship in anti-Christ and brotherhood in Christ.' Our answer is that we shall take up Commander Thanks Program Participants "In behalf of the Legion, we want to thank every individu al, organization and firm for their part in staging the pro gram on Armistice Day," aaid Commander W. H. F. Millar yesterday. "The Legion deeply appre ciates the co-operation given us, and stands ready at all times to be called upon to ren der any service for the Deter ment of the community or mankind." Young Group Gave A "Sadie Hawkins" Day Party Last Saturday Betsv Siler. Jean Ann Bradley, and Nancy Jones, entertained with a "Sadie Hawkins" day party last Saturday evening at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Rufus Siler. The chief feature of the enter tainment was the "Sadie Hawkins" race, and each girl was given a ring by the boy she caught. Delicious refreshments were served by the young hostesses. The guest list included: Margue rite Way, Jane Wyche, Mary Ann Massie, Jackie Sue Messer, Ihere sa Liner, Geraldine Colkitt, Aaron Hyatt, Billy Miller, Tom Ray, Par ker Gay, Dan Watkins, Bobby Har din, Colvin Francis, and Nip and Tuck Ray. slight rumbling of the sabre rat- The Btate guard marched with tling, of how it increased with the 1 ease an(j Bnap.

The arms of steel in which he trusts will fail him; and that our national defense will be "deferred execution." He stressed the importance that we stand united, for God and Amer ica, each one armed as was Paul with the breastplate of Justice and the shield of Faith, and then only can we look forward to Eternal Armistice.
