Dear folks at home,---At
last it has come time to write a
birthday letter to Annie May, after waiting a month
from the time I wrote one out of date.
Glad she had such a pleasant trip to
Temple and Hillsboro,and that she got to see Lila.
It was a surprise to hear she had 'one on such an
extended tour as I had not heard that she was planning
Ye a it is a short time now till June
and home-coming. fope the plans for a general homecoming
can be carried out in full. Haven't heard for
sure whether or not Louis and his family can come,
but my impression is that they are pretty sure of
coming and are rather waiting on more definite plans
from the rest of us before saying Just when. Is that
it? Jake has a ver at attractive offer for attending
a summer school at San Marcos with Jack Storey, his
expenses being met some way so that it will cost him
nothing. By going to the summer school he will be
able to graduate in two more years at Austin College.
I have advised him to take it up. If he does he will
likely want us to meet at home about the first of June
or whenever school is out at A.C. In that case it
may be impossible for Lila to be a t home with us. ' ~
Perhaps it would be better to plan to meet when Lila
can get off and trust to fortune that Jake will be
able to come at the same time. After all Jake might not
go to San Maroos at all.
Went to Wio'ita Palls to preach for our
church up there yesterday week, and had the winner of
the State Oratorical Contest from lustin College to
take my place here
Yesterday was the usual full day,tho
the services were not so weil attended in town. The best
attendance we have ever had at Wolf Rbdge was yesterday's
p. Quite a number of our leaders
in \oung people's work here were absent from C.E.last
night. They have been lying out on us occasionally
but last night a greater nuber than ever were absent.
Knowing that they spent most of Sunday afternoon riding
around in cars as usual,I spent a good bid part of my
evening hour sounding a strong note of warning against
worldliness. I predict a record attendance at C.F. and
church next Sunday nights program when the mothers and
fathers of these youngsters tell them of my laying thoa
out. Young people every where areso devoid of relitou
conviction and duty. They have no ambition whatever.'"
It almost broke m heart last night after announcing
a special get-together meeting to discuss new plans for
May when only four or five of what you would call.
young people were there.Nearly all the cabinet absent.
I look for a real revival after last nights talk.
Here’s what’s next.
