Text; "And They Departed
Quickly From The Sepulchre With
FeaiL And Great Joy; And Did1 Run
To Bring His Disciples Word."
:-.' X ' ,' Matt' 28: 8,
The Resurrection of Christ is the
most stupendous fact of history - -a
fact just as truly authenticated
as are the facts that Hannible cross
ed the Alps, Napoleon met defeat
at Waterloo, and George Washing
ton was first President of the Uni
' We .waste no time here over so
called scientific arguments. Admit

POTENT GOD -- and incredulity

The resurrection of Jesus turned
death's sad gloom into life's glad
bloom. Witness the analogy of na
ture. Spring breaks winter's icey
bonds; vegetation, buried bulbs,
and fruit-tree blossoms burst forth;
the ugly crawling caterpillar is
transformed into the gorgeous-
colored butterflv: and the cold
sleep of winter's hibernation is 1
superseded by the "new life" of
spring's joyous animation.
So it is concerning Easter --it
is THE SPRINGTIME OF THE
SOUL, the Resurrection Day of our
Lord, who "Became the first fruits
of them that slept.'
No wonder the two Marys, who
"went to see the sepulchre," that
first Easter morning, "departed
quickly with fear and GREAT JOY
to bring His disciples word;" and
what indescribable ecstasy, and
rapturous Joy, their experience
must have been I Observe some of
these Easter Joys:
1. THE JOY OF DEATH DE
FEATED. Death is man's greatest

; Fred Patrick, 39 year old Negro
employed by George Amnions, lo
cal Negro business' man, was ar
rested Monday morning and jailed
on charges of robbery. Fred admit
ted the robbery of two places in
Kenansville on two successive Sat
urday nighto, March 10 and 17 to
Deputies Nicholson and Oliver
Home. Both times he entered Ros
coe Jones' cafe and Hill Top Ser
vice Station. On last Saturday night
he also took little Emory Sadler's
bicycle, which was parked in the
back yard. Later during the day
(Monday) he admitted to Deputy
Houston that he took the bike and
led Mr, Houston to a patch of
vines and undergrowth in town
where, he recovered the bicycle.
Fred also led Deputies Nicholson
and Horn to the hiding place of
other stolen property and they re
covered a pistol, radio, 10 or 12
cartons of cigarettes, 3 or 4 tooth
brusheg and some candy. About
$10 in cash was recovered later
in the morning. .
Fred said he was alone in both
robberies. However, officers doubt
this and at this writing they are in
possession .of the name of a woman
accomplice they expect, to arrest.
According to officers, .George

susjjicioned that he might be the
town, robber and tipped off the

grave with the light of immortal
ity. The angel at the sepulchre
sounded the death-knell of death,
when he declared: "HE IS RISEN!"
i 2. THE' JOY OF FAITH RE
STORED. Christ Crucified left His
disciples dismayed, discouraged,
dispersed, and in the grip of dis
pair And aefeat; but Christ Risen
restored their faith, and electrified
them with indomitable courage, an
Impelling spiritual force, that sent
them forth as flaming evangels of
3. THE JOY OF MESSAGE IN
TRUSTED. "Go quickly and tell
his uisciples that HE IS RISEN
from the dead." What a message
of transcendent significance! For
no "good news" that this world
ever heard was as important as the
fact of Christ's victory over death
- the soul-thrilling message in
trusted to the women at the tomb.
4. THE JOY OF HOPE INSPIR
ED. "If Christ be not risen, then
is your preaching vain, and your
faith is vain - - ye are yet in your
sins -- they also which are fallen
asleep in Christ are perished -
BUT, (declared Paul) NOW,, is
Christ risen from the dead;" and
the indisputability of that fact is
the brightest star of hope that ever
shone in the sky of human destiny.
5. THE JOY OF REUNION AS
SURED. "Go quickly -- tell his
disciples --he goeth before you
into Galilee -- there ye shall see
him." The RISEN CHRIST to meet
His disciples in Galilee -- what a
Glorious Reunion! "And if we be
lieve that Jesus died and rose again,
even so shall them which sleep in
Jesus will God bring with him."
Thus the thrilling, joyous, fact of
Christ's resurrection makes poss
ible the Christian's "Blessed As
surance, of A .happy reunion with
"those whowwe have loved and
lost for awhile."

Twenty teen-age- boys were aM

From the story brought out in
court, it seems there had been a ,
feud brewing between Warsaw and .
Turkey boys for almost a week.
Warsaw issued a challenge the first 1
of the week to Turkey and Turkey,
accepted. Boys from both -towns,
met Saturday night at Brinson's
Cafe in Warsaw where they argued '
and decided to go out side of town
to fight it out :?t '-, v,"- i-!,vrf,N '
They went out to Hill Street Ex
tension, west of Warsaw, in the
vicinity of Rob. Herring's bouse.
There they blocked the road with -four
automobiles and engaged In
arguing over "chicken", which is,
a game like "hot rodder's" in which
two cars drive toward each other
with the left wheels on the White
line in the center of the road and
will crash unless one loses nerve
and the one who loses is "chicken".
Fortunately there have been no
wrecks. There was no fist fighting
but 8 to 10 cars were blocked for
an hour according to witnesses and
there was 'profane language used. '-
Mrs. Hubert' Whaley reported the.'
