riants Discover Minerals
A possibility that certain types of !
plant growth may cOfne to be more t
widely used as clues td mineral de
posits has been suggested by Uni
versity of Wyoming workers. They
point out that selenium indicator
and accumulator plants are now
commonly relied upon as guides to
rocks and soils which carry that
element. They suggest that vegeta
tion also may be used as a guide to
other minerals. Certain toxic vege
tation Is known to carry relatively
high rare-metal values, molybde
num being one example.

Mrs. Eva Mae Wynn in Recital
September 12
The former Miss Eva Mae
Dorris, now Mrs. Eva Mae
Wynn, the sweet singer in Is
rael, will appear in a recital at
Immanuel Community Church,
September 12th at 330 p.m.
There willi be no admission
charge. The public is cordially
invited to come and enjoy this
musical feast. An appreciation
offering will be taken. The
proceeds will go to our build
ing fund.
Mrs. Grace Stanley report
ed a total of $224 raised in the
Tag Day effort which she put
on for Immanuel’s building
fund. Of this amount she rais
ed $77.10 herself, which we
think was excellent. We are
very happy to announce that
this $224.00 raised the total
amount in our building fund
to the $5,000 goal for which we
have been working during the
, past year.
The Pastor, Immanuel, nor
Mrs. Stanley have the words
with which to properly express
thanks to the many friends
who thus far have so gracious
ly aided the church in its ef
forts. May God bless and re
ward each of you.
Now as soon as the neces
sary preliminaries incidental to
the building of a structure of
this sort are complete, we plan
to start building. Of course,
since our means are limited,
and for economic sake, the
weather is an item, we have to
reckon with also. But as we
said before, we are at the point
now, at long last, where we
can begin preparing to build.
For this we are very happy.
We have recently returned!
from the 17th Session of the1
Biennial Council of Commun- J
ity Churches, held in Los An-,
geles, California, August 17th
through the 21st. Rev. H.
Mansfield Collins, Host Pastor.
1 here were representatives
from many parts of the United
States present. Immanuel el
ected Mrs. Eva Ray as its d^e
gates, and she was one of the
hundreds of persons attending.
Two of the significant ac
complishments of the session
were, the dcision to uniet or
merge with the National Coun.
cil of Community Churches,
(white) in their next meeting
in 1949, and the election of Dr.
Joseph Evans, Pastor of Met
ropolitan Community Church,
Chicago, as the President of
our Council until the consum
ation of the merger. The next
meeting is set to meet in New
York.

Forestry In Europe
The Zurich municipal forest, the
Sihlwald, has been producing wood
crops for nearly a thousand years,
and in 1422 the city council decided
that the cut of that forest should not
exceed 20,000 pieces of timber per
year. This order constituted the
first recorded forest regulation that
is known. Led by Germany, Swe
den and France, all the principal
European countries now have gov
ernment forest agencies in many
cases have laws to regulate the cut
ting of timber on private lands.
