choir sang over station K. O. W.
H. At 9:30 we convened. Sun
day^ lesson was well taught by
our efficient staff of teachers.
The subject was “Asa: Life of

consensus of opinion of all that
Asa was a man in whom God had
supreme trust. Asa was also one
to recognize his duty to God. Due
to the absence of our Secretary

a vacation, Miss Edna Blair is

an outstanding pianist. Announce

upon oneself to open the door.

encouraging of the Union and said
