Lesson Text: Acts 14:44-52;
1 Following the triumphant exper
ience on the island of Cyrus, where
the proconsul Sergius Paulus had
been converted, and perhaps inspired
by such events, Paul and Barnabas

heathen world of Asia Minor, land-
southern coast. Here John Mark left
the party, although the record gives
no reason. Several years later Paul
divided from Barnabas rather than
agree for Mark to accompany them,
a, Many possible reasons have been
assigned for Mark's desertion. Some
think that he disapproved of the idea
or carrying the gospel to the Gen
tiles. Others that the missionary
tour was extending further than he
had expected. The possibility that
he had been stricken with sickness

as well as mere fear of the dangers
of the perilous joumey inland.
Another reason has been assigned
in his disliking Paul's assuming the
leavrship from his kinsman, Barna
bas.) At any rate, John Mark went
back to Jerusalem. In later years he
redeemed himself, serving with Bar
nabas and Peter so well that even
Paul was reconciled to him.
-JVe should not judge Mark too
.Hastily. As Dr. James D. Hunter
-says: "No one of us knows himself,
or is known, until the supreme test

1 stuff , exactly, we are made. There
may be in us more of the shirker, the
. traitor, the coward than we or others
ever dreamed of. Physical cowards-
we may not be, but moral cowards
we may easily be. Are we not often
afraid to express our honest convic
tions. Do we not sometimes shirk
the performance of an unpopular,
duty? De we not often secretly in
our hearts laud and praise bold,
brays? men, like Paul and Barnabas,
whfie' at the same time we leave
them to fight olone the great moral
battles of life? What better are we
than John Mark?"
i Paal and Barnabas proceeded on
theii hundred mile journey to Pisi
dian Antioch, a trip which took them
over bad roads or none at all,
through a lawless people, across un
brldged rivers and over mountains.
This Antioch Jto be distinguished
from the one in Syria and eleven
others) was on the main eastern to
western highway through Asia Mi
nor. Arriving here these leaders at
tended the sfnagogue and we have a
.brief account of the first recorded
sermon delivered by Paul, in which
he rjn through the history of the
Jews the gradual unfolding of God's
plan which culminated in the death
and resurrection of Jesus, and set
forth his great doctrine of justifica
tion ."by faith.
01 the next Sabbath the whole
city gathered to hear the new mes
sage. The Jews were filled with
jealousy and contradicted the basis of
the new faith. They denied the
possibility of salvation in the cross,
asserted that Jesus had died the
deafh of a criminal and charged that
te Resurrection had been a fraud
perpetrated by the disciples of JeBus.
Paul and Barnabas boldly met the
challenge, declaring that since the
Jewsyfelt themselves "unworthy of
eterAal life" they would turn to the
Gentiles, quoting the prophecy of
The world today should avoid the
unchristian exclusiveness practiced
and, believed bytte Jews of that day,
yet .there are many signs that such
is not the case. As Dr. Charles E.
Jefferson says: "The very existence

of civilization is jeopardized by our
national suspicions and hatreds. Na
tions are so afraid of one another,
that they weigh themselves down
with armor. Patriotism is too often
little more than hatred of foreign
countries. The man who is fond of
any country but his own, is suspected
of having the heart of a traitor.
We need the saving influence of the
great-hearted Paul, the man who
loved all classes and all nations and
all races, because Christ died for
The Jews incited the women and
chief men against the two mission
aries and as a result of the hostility
they were expelled, going to Icon-
mm. Women played a more active
part in the world of that day than
many realize. As William E. Ram
sey explains: "The honors and in
fluence which belonbed to women in
cities of Asia Minor forf one of the
most remarkable features in the his
tory of the country. Under the Ro
man Empire we find women magis
trates, presidents of games, and
loaded with honors. The custom of
the country influenced even the Jews,
who in at least one case appointed a
woman at Smyra to the position of
ruler of tke synagogue. It would be
strange if the women had not exer
cised some influence over St. Paul's
Regarding Sale Of
Wheat Under Act
Here is information of importance
to any person who buys, sells or
handles wheat this year under the
AAA's first national marketing con
trol program for wheat.
E. Y. Floyd, AAA executive offi
cer at State College, advising that
any combiner, processor or grower of
wheat should approach his county
AAA office for administrative details
of the marketing quota program im
mediately, today offered this outline
The non-allotment farmer who har
vests wheat in excess of his usual
acreage and the allotment farmer
who seeded in excess of his alloted
acreage must "clear" themselves
with AAA authorities either by
paying the penalty of 49 cents a
bushel on excess wheat or by pro
viding satisfactory removal of the
overage from trade channels before
they may receive marketing cards.
Unless the farmer can show his mar
keting card, Floyd said, the buyer or
combiner will know that the wheat
offered is subject to penalty.
Buyer and producer of wheat sold
without marketing card will be joint
ly liable for payment of penalty.
Action will be taken by the office of
the U. S. Attorney General in Fed
eral Court if the penalty established
for the individual farm is not paid
within 60 days after completion of
If the producer shows a marketing
card, however, the buyer or combiner
will know that the wheat may be
Special arrangements will be made
to accommodate growers who market
wheat by telephone or mail, Floyd

Old Glory Celebrates
The shadowy figure of Betsy Ross is shown in the background of the U. S. Marines, displaying our
National Flag and their regimental standard. At right are Pine Tree, Grand Union and Itattlesnake Hags,
used before the Stars and Stripes design was adopted by the Continental Congress, June 14, 1777. Citi
zens of the Carolinas will be proud to celebrate Flag Day, June 14. Roth North and South Carolina are
rich in their historical associations and are among the original Thirteen States. They will join the other
States of a thoughtful nation in remembering the birthday of Old Glory, beloved emblem of our country
for 164 years, for it was in 1777 that the Stars and Stripes first waved triumphantly "o'er the land of the
free and the home of the brave."
