which they are noted, formed tha
Inspirational background for the
very instructive and sipirtual serm
on that was so very effectively de
livered by our pastor. Among our
visitors was Our recent hero Mr.

agog over his wonderful feat of
bravery in action. Ah you know
we are resuming the building of cur

Since Hitler and Japs have made
it necessary for Uncle Sam to unite

There seems to be a lot of con -

can be said about what sort of dis

the customers while in the Amer

Due to the fact that this year
there will not be a banquet for the
