Back Years; Hold
A Spelling Bee
An old-fashioned spelling match
for all members over forty, was
the program of the Rotary Club
A Blue back speller was used, and
each participant had to follow the
rules of that famous school book
of years ago.
The majority of the members
spelled a number of words before
taking their seats, and some ad
mitted, they did some good guess
ing to stand as long as they did.
Private Ray J. Rector, of Fort
Bragpr, visited his parents, Mr.
and Mrs. Tom Rector, of 5 Patton
Jack Smathers, of Camp Stew
art, Ga., spent the week-end with
Mrs, Smathers and parents.

FOURTH TRACT: Being the .i" a,"P! lWE . ,yJ
THE TIME in which this les
son took place was December
A. D. 29. The place was Perea. St.
Luke tells us that the Master ap
pointed 70 men to carry the gos
pel to various towns and villages
where He Himself would later
come. The time was growing
short, the Lord knew, and He
must quickly tell as many as pos
sible about His gospel, and give
them His message. St. Luke Is the
only one to tell us about this.
These 70 men were to go forth
two and two, for company. They
were sent "as lambs among
wolves," Jesus told them. That Is,
they were Innocent and filled with
the message they had to tell, but
probably had no Idea how many
people would be angry at their
"nerve," as we would call it today,
in hearing such an important
message from these simple, Igno
rant, lily clothed persons, as they
They were to "carry neither
purse, nor scrip, nor shoes; and
salute no man by the way." This
latter did not mean that they
were to be uncivil, but the cus
tom of the country was to stop,
salute each other, and to chat
about this and that, and the 70
had no time for that. They must
work quickly to get the message
delivered before their Lord came.
Peace Be to This House
They were to go to a private
house, and when It was opened to
them, they were to give the Jew
ish salutation, "Peace be to this
house." If the man of the house
was at home and was hospitable,
they should rest In that home,
"eating and drinking such things
as they give; for the laborer is
worthy of his hire." Meaning that
they earned the hospitality by
their words and deeds, for they
were to "heal the sick therein, and
say unto them, The Kingdom of
God is come nigh unto you."
If they were not received cor
dially, however, the disciples were
to shake the dust of that place
from their feet, but they were to
be sure also to say that "the
kingdom of G04 is come nigh unto
you." And "woe unto those cities,"
Jesus told them. Tyre and Sodom
were considered wicked cities and
punished for their sins, but "It
shaU be more tolerable for Tyre
and Sodom at the judgment, than
for you," said Jesus.
"He that hearelh you, heareth
Me," the Master told these men,
"and he that desplseth you despls-
eth Me; and he that despiseth Me
desplseth Him that sent Me'
The 70 went their way and after
a time came back, meeting Jesus
at an appointees piaee, u 1 sup
posed. They were Joyful, for, said
they. "Lord, even the devils are
subject to us through Thy name.
And Jesus answered, "I beheld
Satan as lightning fall from
heaven." We surmise that his
meaning was that He saw the evil
giving way to good, and the work
of the evil one doomed.
Nothing Should Hurt Them
"Behold, I give unto you power
to tread on serpents and scorpions.
and over all the power of the
enemy: and nothing shall by any
means hurt you." Faith would
keep-them safe, but they should
not rejoice about that, but be glad
"because your names are written
In heaven," the Master said.
"In that hour Jesus rejoiced In
spirit, and said, I thank Thee, O
Father, Lord of Heaven and earth,'
that Thou hast hid these things
from the wise and 'prudent, and
hast revealed them unto bakes;
even so, Father, for so It seemed
good in Thy sight.
"And He turned Him unto His
disciples, and said privately,
Blessed are the eyes which see
the things that ye see,"
"For I tell you, that many
prophets and kings have desired
to see those things ye see, and
have not Seen them; and to hear
those things which ye hear, and
have not heard them." .
Princes, kings, wealthy, learned
and good people, would doubtless
have given everything they had
to have been with Jesus while He
was on earth, to have heard Him
speak, to have received His mes
sage from His own lips, and to
have done the work these 70
chosen men were appointed to do.
They were not rich or well edu
cated, but they were honest, sim
ple folk who understood their
Lord andwere willing to risk all
to do His bidding.

Meantime, it's taken for granted
that General MacArthur will over
come his handicaps, but it's obvi
ous that he has them to overcome.
The Axis powers naturally are
broadcasting their version that the
general "abandoned" the Philip-
