HAVE YOU SEEN DUPLIN LATELY?
Have you taken advantage of these beautiful fall' after
noons over the past several week ends to make a teur of the "
scenic spots of Duplin County? Yes there are literally hun
dreds of beautiful scenic spots in Duplin these tell days. You
will find them most anywhere along our country roads If you
will Just look. We read and see pictures of beautiful scenic
drives in other parts of the state but I wonder how many of '
us look for the pretty spots and search out nature right here
at home. No prettier pastoral scenes can be found anywhere
'than here In old Duplin. I ride around and look and wonder
why the artists who paint country scenes In other parts of the
country have not looked for some around these parts. Now
that we have hard surfaced roads all over the county it. is
easy for one to tour the entire county on a sunny afternoon.
We could designate some of our attractive scenic spots hut
the most attractive are those to be found almost by accident
If you go out looking for a spot that has been pointed out
you might be expecting too much. If you go out looking for
natural beauty your eye will find it everywhere. Why not drive
out and discover your county - you'll be surprised.
To The Editor
- From the very dawn of civiliza
tion, some men have possessed an
inherent hysteria to dominate their
- fellows. The pages of sacred and
: profane history record the terrible
atrocities of War, which often has
drenched the World with the blood
of innocent men, women and child-
- ren. From time immemorial, other
men have devised all kinds of
" methods to try to stop war even to
the ridiculous extent of fighting
wars to end war.
Good will policies, peace tribu
nals, treaties and diplomacy are
most necessary and tremendously
Important, but insufficient.
In a pinch treaties are torn up
as scraps of paper, diplomacy is
inadequate and delegates walk out
of the League of Nations with the
. ' Some men's hearts must be
changed. The people of the World
must either accept God or war.
Which? I am sure bombs can and
may destroy the World. I am Just
as certain that prayer is mightier
than bombs. "
At this moment ladened with
the gravest possibilities and re
sponsibilities, I modestly offer the
I do solemnly promise:
First: I will be a better member
of the religious ; organization to
which I belong. .-;',
Second: If not a member, will
Join some religious group immedi
ately.'. A'; s
Third: I will pray dally for one
year that lasting peace will come
to all mankind. ...
Name ; ....
The sole purpose of this move
ment is to help save the World
spiritually and physically. If you
are willing to Jqln with me and
other people all over the World,
cut out this pledge, sign it and
keep it , . .Ki-;:.:r--.i.i..

Thoughts of the large family at
the Oxford Orphanage begin to
turn towards the . Thanksgiving
season wnen tnousands of Masons
and other friends annually give
generously of their means to the
welfare of boys and girls who need
and so well deserve them. This Is
of utmost importance in these
young lives. ' ' ;
The Oxford Orphanage for three
quarters of a century hss special
ized in every phase of properly
rcirJng. orphaned children. Its
"'ton of r""- t' -i r"v'
Institution whose sole object Is to
serve. s &:J.Jl J.:;-?!
The Grand Lodge of Masons owns
and operates the Oxford Orphan
age, but barf never restricted Its
services to the children of Masons.
Ninety percent of the children' in
the Institution are of non-Masonic
parentage. At Oxford the' question
of parentage yields to the need of
the child. That is the decisive argu
ment .. -'.
The need of Orphanages today
for greater support is pressing.
They must have more money
or else. You know what that means.
Superintendent Gray la forced
by circumstances to stress increas
ed donations this Thanksgiving.
The expense of operating the Ox
ford Orphanage has been growing
every year and now It at a peak.
When one thinks of the multitude
of services the institution has to
perform, it is enough to open the
hearts and purses of benevolent
men and women. Here is a partial
list of the kinds of service Impera
tively demanded: shelter, clothing,
food, recreation, heat, light, books,
school supplies, health programs,
athletic equipment, staff of train
ed workers, vocational training in
several departments, laundry, re
pairs and upkeep of grounds, build
ings and equipment, experienced
case work, and so on.
There is.no economy In neglect,
What we do not pay from the
heart, often we have to pay "thru
the nose." Juvenile dellnqulncy .is
an acute problem of the times. Its
prevalence is deplorable. The Or
phanage helps materially In the so
lution of this social problem by
rearing and training children who
otherwise would not have a chance.
If it did no more than this, the Or
phanage would Justify Its existence.
As a tax payer and public-spirited
citizen you are vitally Interested In
it. - v...?-;jv.' v-v-, "

Lessen far November It, ISM
SOME one has said that B the
Christian church did nothing
else but offer a regular' opportuni
ty for public worship of God, she
would h a v.e justi
fied her place in
the sun. This Is a
; rather misleading
-truth, for If a
'church did nothing
but worship It would
not be dolnt its
.whole duty, indeed
It would not be a
true church. As our
jshows, worship disconnected from
Ufa Is not only good, it is sinfuL
WHAT is worship, and why do we
worship at all? We might de
I fine it as a meeting with God, both
.conscious, and desired. "He shines
;in an that's fair." and in truth we
are In hla presence all the time.
But we are not conscious of him all,
i the time, when we are conscious
let him, then caw c( two things hap
pen. Either w hastily shut our
mmds and run away from him in
fear, which is am. "Or we linger,
.feeUng It Is good for us to be here.

Why worship? We worship be
cause we love God. - Otherwise It
would be a bore, at best, or a kind
of self-torture at worst We worship
.because we need Ood. If Jesus
needed both .public worship and
private prayer, so do we far more,
lWe worship because we need to
know God's win. -
Why Worship Together?
PUBLIC and private worship csn
. not be substituted for each oth
er. Readers of the Bible know how
.they were intertwined in the ex
periences of God's people, and how
our Lord himself, who, used to at
tend the synagogue services regu
larly, also sought God on the hills,
i alone. A rnanwho never meets with
God alone in prayer win not know
.how to come to publlo worship -in
the true spirit; -and a man who
habitually stays away from church
for no good reason is rio a person
whose private prayer-life Is likely
to be a healthy 'one. ".' r :
We need te worship together
" with ether Christians.' We need
: this experience ' te strengthen
j ear ewn prayerWe. We need
It te keep as from selfishness
In ear prayers, intense, earnest
prayer, and fall' ef faith tee,
J may be serlensly wrong If It
la essentially selfish. :
In corporate, public worship we
are reminded that none of us stands
.alone; that God has many children.
;We need' to worship together be
cause it is one of the very few,
things, perhaps the only one, that'
an human beings can do as one.
No two of us are alike, yet we are
alike in this one thing: We are all
human beings In need of God. To
worship together is to be reminded'
-Why Worship As We Do?
r OUGHT not to be surprising that
men worship God, in so many
ways, for there are all sorts and
conditions, of men. But within the
Protestant churches, our differences
are not important. Essentially we
have much the same "pattern' of
worship. It will be helpful to you,
the next time you are, in church, to
ask, at each part of' the service:
Why do we do this? What good does
it dp? Could U be left out without
