'Men At Work7
If you want to see a worthwhile sight—a sight that exem-
plifies a high type of devotion to one's church—just drive out
Old Richmond Road a few blocks past Post Oak Road any
Tuesday or Thursday night. There you will see "men at
work"—not for money, not for honor and not for glory—but
just simply because they are devoted to their church and be-
cause, despite the manpower shortage and the fact that it
must be built as economically as possible, they desperately
want an addition to their church. They want it so badly that
they are willing to give the equivalent of half a day's work
twice a week after they have spent a full day at their regular
It's the addition to the Bellaire Baptist Church that is be-
ing built, mostly with volunteer labor. At no time, according
to Rev. F. A. Tippen, pastor, have there been more than three
paid workers on the job. And yet the building, for which
ground was broken December 18, is expected to be completed
by February 1, weather permitting.
The men work in the glare of spotlights, and the spotlights,
too, are donated by some of the church members. Some nights
the ladies of the church serve coffee and cake, adding to the
cheer and good fellowship that the work sessions bring forth.
The church is fortunate, said Reverend Tippen, in having
carpenters, electricians, engineers and other craftsmen as
The church, just four years old, met in the school house
after it was first organized and then in the Bellaire City Hall.
Finally the first unit of the church plant was built, but it soon
proved inadequate for the needs of the rapidly growing con-
gregation. With the completion of the unit under construc-
tion, the Bellaire Baptist Church will have a 15-room church
plant, with the new unit adequate to house a Sunday School
with an attendance of 250.
The giving of time to work for the church is not a practice
that has been recently inaugurated. Ever since Reverend
Tippen assumed the pastorate, members of the church have
been devoting time to church work in the evenings. In this
way, the lawn has been mowed, shrubs have been planted, the
church building has been painted, and other necessary work
If you have the time—and the gasoline—drive out some
night and watch these Bellaire Baptists at work. It's a sight

P.-T. A. Meet Today
Miss Marian Dunshee will pre-
sent a series of six discussions on
"What Can We Do For Our Chil-
dren?" in the auditorium of the
Oran M. Roberts School at Green-
briar and Swift. The lectures will
be held on Thursday afternoons,
beginning today at 1:30.
While the discussions were espe-

mentary age children, points
brought out are adaptable to other
age groups as well, Miss Dunshee
said. Each discussion will last one
and a half hours, followed by half
an hour of individual counseling.
The series is sponsored by the Par-

He had choked her. She was dead;
there was no doubt about it. He had
listened to her dying gasp. Now
she was cold—cold as the hand of
death. Yet in his anger he was not
convinced. Furiously he kicked her.
To his amazement she gasped, sput-
tered and then began to hum softly.
"Just a little patience is all it
takes, John," remarked his wife
from the back seat.—"The Jingle,"
