Report Card
By Linda Martin
Congratulations to the Cedar Hill Longhorn football
team for a fine game and a victory in last Friday
night's game against Red Oak. Now we're looking for-
ward to a win over Forney tomorrow night. Good luck,
September was the official membership month for
PTSA and PTA. Both PTA groups closed out their
membership for this fall officially on October 15, when
state and national dues were paid.
Regular memberships are good for one year only.
The High School and Middle School PTSA now has a
total of 102 regular members and one Life Member,
Red Colquitt. We are also very proud to have our first
student member, Pete Rosales. Hopefully, other
students will follow Pete's example next year as we
continue to build PTSA.
Cedar Hill Elementary PTA has a total of 216
members which include members from both Bray and
South Hills Elementary Schools.
Mrs. Mary Nell Richards, membership chairman
for PTSA, and Mrs. Holly Steele, membership chair-
man for Elementary PTA both deserve a big thanks
for their efforts and time they have given to this
September membership drive.
South Hills held its Open House Tuesday, October 12,
with an excellent turn out of parents as did Bray Tues-
day, October 19. Many enjoyed the music program, PE
demonstration by fifth graders and explanation of the
reading program by first grade teachers at South
Hills. Both schools had taken great care in decorating
each room colorfully and informatively.
Coming up soon is the big carnival night at 3ray
sponsored by Elementary PTA. It will be Saturday,
October 30. Its theme is the "Carnival of Clowns." Mrs.
Joy Knight is in charge of the carnival this year and we
understand that she's doing an excellent job. The
carnival is not limited to just elementary students.
Everyone is invited and encouraged to attend. We
think this is an excellent and safe way to celebrate
Money made from the carnival will go to the funding
of Elementary PTA projects during the year. The
Cedar Hill Boy Scouts will be running a booth at the
carnival donating their time and money made at it to
PTA. Good for you, Boy Scouts!
Pi Sigma Middle School Science Club held a parents
meeting recently with teacher sponsor, Mike Bolinsky.
Purpose of the meeting was to plan the spring trip and
a money making event to finance this trip. The club is
allowed only one money making event per year. We
urge all of you Cedar Hill citizens to support this fine
Bolinsky has really worked with these kids (and all
of his science classes) to promote an interest and
enthusiasm in science that is a thrill to watch. Science
club members have by-laws to follow including
scholastic and conduct requirements to remain in the
club. They must also attend meetings at 7 o'clock in the
morning. PTSA is proud to sponsor such an
enthusiastic and worthwhile group.
By the way, we hear that Bolinsky's high school
chemistry class has a trip or maybe two planned this
year also. It that true, Mike?
Four after the game dances have been held this year
with one more to go. Last Friday, Harry Nelson, KLIF
discjockey, did the honors and gave away 15 or more
record albums. PTSA supplied three of those albums
as special prizes. We were glad to see some Longhorn
football players win some of them, Mike Murdock, Ray
Grogan, Steve Hozdulick that we know about. PTSA
board members are considering perhaps a special
dance to wind up the football season...Look for details
in a later column.
These after the game dances require a lot of pre-
paration and clean up. I would publicly like to thank
Mrs. Shirley Nicholson for being ever so faithful in this
duty. PTSA appreciates her efforts very much and
also those of parents who have chaperoned these

First Baptist Church
The word "church" is never used in the New Testa-
ment to refer to a building or a denomination. It is used
only in reference to all of the redeemed of all ages and
to a local body of baptized believers. The great
majority of its references are to the local church.
The church is a divine institution. It is built by Christ
and upon the faith of the believer. The church was
purchased by divine blood. The local church is to be
made up of baptized believers who are banded
together to observe the ordinances, worship the Lord,
mature spiritually, and carry out the Great
The church is referred to in Ephesians and in
Romans as the "body" of Christ. It is, therefore, an
organism, not an organization. This denotes life and
Several times in the New Testament the church is
referred to as the "bride" of Christ. This, I think,
symbolizes love and fruit-bearing. The church is to be
subject to Christ as a wife is to her husband.
Men ought to be careful how they regard the church.
They should be faithful in their support and love of it.
The Word of God cautions, "If any man defile (attempt
to destroy) the temple of God, him shall God destroy;
for the temple of God is holy..."
