Ex. 14:15. His subject was
“Church going forward.” Rev.
Roah reminded us that it was no
one big person in the church, they
all belonged to one family to God.
Our very souls rejoiced in the sal
vation of God. On Sunday even

wonderful sermon by Rev. Roah.
His text was from Matt. 17:18.
"They saw no man save Jesus
only”. His subject was “Jesus
Only.” Again we were made to

Properly speaking, Thanksgiv

of appreciation and of gratitude
for Divine benefactions. The spir

laudable; it should be encouraged;
especially should the youth of the
nation be urged to give to it due
consideration; but, in our celebra

It is to be regretted that the
mercenary spirit has become so
prominent—almost dominant. The .
commercial world thinks more of
"bargains” and "sales” than of,
the spirit Then, Epicureanism j
enters in. Many surrendor to
gluttonly while others are hungry.
It is both ridiculous and sacrilig
ious to pretend to express grati
tude by drunkenness and other
forms of bacchanalianism. Frivol
ity and worldliness are often dom
inant features of what is profess
edly a religious celebration; and
in this the real spirit of Thanks
giving is lost.
As a nation, as a race, and as
individuals, we have much for
which to be thankful. I know no
better way of emphasizing this
thought than that which is found
in the hymn entitled, “Count your
Blessings.” And I recommend
that the hymji be used in Thanks
giving services. The first verse
carries the gist of the whole pro

If you are discouraged, thinking
all is lost,
Count your many blessings—name
them, one by one;
And it will surprise you what the
Lord has done.”
The services were wonderful
throughout the day. The morn

Carter. Before the sermon he left
a short space open for testifying.

The Charm of the Chance
The men were thoroughly en
grossed in their games of cards,
so that the new arrival hardly
dared to bid them “good evening,”
lest he break the spell. But he
sat down to watch and think.
What a fascination the game has
for them. We can well understand
when they say they find relief
from ordinary cares in the pas
time. For the time being they are
dealing with kings and queens
diamonds of purely fictitious val
ue; they are living in a land of
make-believp, forgetting all else.
The same is true of chess play
ers. They, too, deal with ficti
tious values. Their kings, queens,
knights, ladies, castles, and pawns
are but symbols of imagination en
titles. In a sense they are taking
part in a battle in fairy land. They
have withdrawn from the struggle
jfor material realities and engage
in a tournament in which loss or
gain leaves them neither richer
nor poorer. No wonder they feel
relieved. It is a retreat into the
land of make-believe.
If, however, they play for mon
ey, then real, material values en
ter in again, and the game be
comes a business with all its cares
and headaches. The charm be
comes a lure. No chains are heav
ier than the confirmed gambler’s
fetters. For him the beautiful gift
of play has become a curse.
World War Hero
Hopes That Italy
Will Lose Fight
Jamestown, Term., Nov. 30, (By
ANP).—While emphasizing the
fact that he would not “go over
there again”, Sergeant Alvin C.
York, white, described by General
John J. Pershing, as “the greatest
civilian soldier of the world war”
expressed the hope that Italy would
be defeated in the present Italo
“I hope” said Sergeant York,
‘Italy will be defeated, sent back
home and made to pay for every
cents worth of damage that’s been
done. But I don’t want to see
this country take up arms to help
do it. And if she does count me
out. If we are attacked I’d be on
the shore to meet them when
they arrived but I am not going
over and stick myself in anybody
else’s business again.”
“Has Crimson Gulch a good ho
tel?” asked the traveling man.
"To tell the truth,” said Cactus
Joe, "it hasn’t. If you want a square
meal, speed up your car a little
and I’ll use my p’lltlcal pull to have
you put It. Jail for a few hours."

The Hopes Is To Improve The
Chicago, Nov. 30, (ANP)—
The Julius Rosenwald Fund
has expended $1,689,451 dur
ing the past two years, accord
ing to the Biennial Review
just issued by Edw*in R. Em
bree, president of the Fund.
The payments were made in
carrying out educational and
philanthropic programs, the
chief of which are Negro wel
fare, rural education, and
medical services. Outstanding
among these has been the
study of Southern tenuant
In commenting on rural edu
cation, Mr. Embree says in the
report: “During recent dec
ades, when we were hypno
tized by industrial prosperity
and urban glamour, we ceased
to think of the country except
as a place from which to es
cape. Formalistic schools were
as active as any of the other
forces of the past half century
in carrying children's atten
tions and ambitions from the
country to the city. In fact
schools Trcrs a oiud of sicV6
lor separating tne smart from
the dull and it was an axiom
the times that thje smart
would quickly migrate to the
cities, leaving only the dull
ards to make country life
even more dismal and soggy
than it had been before. The
first and great reform in rural
schools, therefore, is that edu
cation shall direct itself to the
peculiar needs of country chil
dren w i t h a view to making
them happy and useful citizens
of country life.' ’
A Council on Rural Educa
tion has been organized by the
Rosenwald Fund, composed of
20 leaders in education and so
cial afafirs, chiefly from the
South where the rural school
work is being carried out as a
continuation of the Fund's
long interest in Negro schools.
The present program, how
ever, is not restricted to Ne
groes, but concerns the whole
school systems of rural areas.
Important activities of the
Fund and the sums spent on
them during the past two
years: Negro education (in
cluding schools, colleges, and
fellowships) $330,000; Negro
health, $95,000; race relations
and social studies, $200,000;
general education, $120,000; li
brary extension, $100,000;
medical services, $190,000.

Farmers Lose Savings
In Swindle Game
Talladega, Ala., Nov. 30,
(ANP)—Palling for a story
told by a suave stranger,
George Carter and his son, re
puted well-to-do colored
farmers living near here, were
fleeced out of $1,382 here
Tuesday .according to the re
port made to local police.
The senior Carter made the
report, declaring that t h e
stranger came to him last
Thursday with the proposition
which involved a farm in
Georgia. The stranger held
deeds to the farm in Georgia
and for the sum of $5,000 of
which $1,400 would have to be
paid in cash, he was sup
posed to have turned over the
deeds to Carter. The cash
payment was made but the
deeds were not turned over as
per agreement and when the
seller failed to show up for
thre days, Carter reported the
transaction to the police who
are now searching for the wily
