I ' ' Hi , CHRISTIAN STEWARDSHIP ' International Sunday School Lesson for December 14, 1M1 Gojden Text: "It is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful." I Cor. 4:2. Lesson Texti II Cor. 8:1-9; 9:6-7. When Christian people generally come to a full realisation of the meaning of stewardship and accept its implications, patting its teachings into practice in their own lives, the Christian Church will show such an advance that it will amaze even the 1 most optimistic. I Just what is a steward? A glance into a dictionary reveals that a "steward is one who manages the af fairs, or possessions, of another." The steward is not the owner of the possessions, he is the care-taker, re sponsible to the real owner. This is true of a ship's steward he does not own. the ship nor even the materials with which he works or for which he is responsible. He must make an ac counting to the owner, however, for the manner in which he performs his duties or cares 'for the possessions oT the ship-owner. When we speak of Christian stew ardship, the idea is the same. We acknowledge that God is the owner of everything, by right of creation and that He lets us hold and use what is really His, for a time and that, eventually, everything that we have, or own, really goes back to the Heav enly Father in some way. The Psalmist declared, ''The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof, the world and they that dwell there in." Time, which we may use or mis use, was given to us by God. Our talents and abilities, which if proper ly developed may help us to attain success in living, are given to us by God. God is the source and owner of all things and man is just a tenant of His, allowed through God's good ness and generosity to use and pos sess what really belongs to Him. Acknowledging the above to be true, what return shall we make to t God for the use of His possessions .' , If we rent an apartment, a store building or a farm from another, we naturally expect to pay rent, a cer tain stipulated sum, for the use of the property rented. Yet, when some one be it preacher, Sunday School teacher or worker mentions that one should set aside a certain stipulated sum out of one's earnings as holy unto the Lord, most people hold up their hands in horror and say that the one tiling they don't like about the church and its workers is their ever lasting emphasis upon giving money. They are not stewards or they would not have that attitude. However, tithing is only a small part of Christian stewardship. Paul, in writing to the Corinthians, praised the Macedonian Christians for their liberality and generosity in giving to the unfortunate believers in Judea and called attention to a very 'impor tant factor, when he said that these Christians, "first gave their own selves to the Lord." When Chris- tians dedicate "their own selves to the Lord" there will be no question Pierce, Ned Nixon, Walter Umphlet, about their generosity, their service J. L. DeLaney, E. U.

He wants more than a small proportion of your money. He wants part of your time, your energy, your talent and your God-given ability used for His and in His service. You may not have much money, but there is always something you can give to God or use for God. He doesn't judge us by the size of our gift, the greatness of our talent. His only question of us is: "Did you do your best?" Anything less than our best is not a worthy gift to the God who loves us so much that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoso ever believeth on Him should not perish but have everlasting life. What kind of a steward are you?

Comfortable Hens Produce More Eggs When the cold winds of winter blow, that's the time to think of the comfort of the farm poultry flock, says C. F. Parrish, poultryman of the N. C. State College Extension Service. A comfortable house, free from drafts, will help to keep the birds free fiom common winter ailments and aid them in producing a maxi mum number of eggs. Then, too, each bird should have at least 31-! to 4 square feet of floor "'V1" -"- wuimi jiyauc auuuiu uk uruviueu ui the number culled down to a point where the birds may be comfortable in present quarters. Water that fhas been heated to knock the chill off, or fresh from the well early each morning, will do much to prevent a cold snap from causing a sharp drop in egg production. For less trouble, automatic electric or oil heated warmers should be installed. In other suggestions for December to North Carolina poultrymen, Par rish said the feeding of one pound of alfalfa leaf meal per 100 birds will be a satisfactory substitute for green feed if the dry fall prevented the sowing of a grazing crop. if the flock is properly housed and cared for and not more than 80 to 40 eggs per 100 hens are received daily, then there may be something wrong with the health or breeding of the birds, Parrish said. hi,m.-i. ; to the kind of breeding males he uses next year, or the sources from which he purchases his baby chicks, the State College specialist advised.
