The Howe Enterprise
By H. L. Cody
There is a sign beside the highway pro-
traying a hungry and ragged child. The
picture and tne words “IT HURTS” are
intended to make us conscious of the mis-
fortunes of people in other parts of the world.
We need this reminder because we take so
many blessings for granted. It is hard for
us to understand how it hurts to be without
the necessities of life. There are many ways
that we too can say, “IT HURTS”.
It hurts to see people go hungry when
there is plenty of food, for ail. It hurts to see
people sick wnen there are so many doctors
and medicines. It hurts to see people in ig
norance when we have so many schools and
teachers. It hurts to see people sad when
there is so much to be happy about.
None of these can compare with how it
hurts to see people suffering due to lack of
spiritual needs. It hurts to see people hungry
for the truth. There is plenty for all, but
Christians have not been diligent enough in
sharing it with the world. Jesus said, “Teach
all nations” (Matt. 28:19). When it hurts
enough maybe we will do more about carrying
out the commission given us by Christ. We
cannot all go. over seas to preach and teach,
but, we can help send someone. Also, we need
to realize the great and urgent need of teach-
ing the Gospel in this country. There are
millions who would become Christians if they
knew the truth. Many who are not Christians
are confused as to what the truth is: and no
'wonder, since so many of us who claim to be
teachers are divided. As long as this condi-
tion exists we will continue to see people
confused. It hurts to see people ignorant of
the things that pertain to life and godliness
when God has given us all this through a
knowledge of Him who has called us to glory
and virtue (2. Peter 1:3). As long as people
are ignorant of the truth we will find them
with a misguided zeal In writing to the
Romans, Paul said, “For they being ignorant
of God’s righteousness, and going about to
establish their own righteousness, have not
submitted themselves to the righteousness
of God” (Rom.l0:3). God has given in His
Word all we need in order to know the truth.
I pray that we all might study more with a
mind to please God. This willl do more to
remove ignorance and aid the cause of Christ
than anything else I know.
It hurts to see people sick in sin when the
Great Physician wants to heal them Matt.
9:12,13). Jesus came to the earth for the
purpose of taking gway the sins of the world.
He knew man was sick (in sin and could not
cure himself. It grieved Him to look upon
people who refused to be healed even though
He was their only hope. Some were sinners
and knew it, They simply did not care.
Others thought they were right and Jesus
an imposter. Regardless of the situation
Jesus wept over Jerusalem because they
would not come to Him and be healed. This
^urely is tiue today. .Tesus has not changed

If we all pull together, the bank will be
a reality within a year or so. But, if we say
“The bank in Sherman or Tom Bean or Van
Alstyne have been good to me and I will
stay with them, then there will be no Howe
bank. It is true that the people in the Sher-
man and these other banks are good people
and to us the management of the banks in
Tom Bean and Van Alstyne are personal
friends but we are not “letting down” our
friends when we move for our betterment,
but on the contrary these very friends should
be glad for us to have a handy bank here at
The best authorities tell us that is costs
at least eight cents a mile to drive, even a
small car, so atj that rate it costs at
least 80 cents to transact business at Van
Alstyne and even more for the more distant
banks. Now 80 cents does not seem very
much but if you need to go as often as twice
a week it would amount to $6.40 per month
and if a bang should charge a “service
charge” of $6.40 we would go up in the air,
crack our heels together an shout “Robery”.
But, in the mind of your humble servant,
the most important reason for wanting a
bank here is the fact that it would increase
the value of our property: attract more
people and industries here. It is next to
impossible to get an industry at least one
with a considerable pay-roll to come to a
town wthout a bank.
So, when a member of the commtitee
(listed on the front page) be sure and fill
out one or both of the cards he will have
and be a booster for the bank and for Howe.

in His attitude toward sin nor weakened in
His desire to cure.
It hurts to see people sad over their sins
and of others. One may realize he is a sinner
and do nothing to be relieved of his burden.
He is grieved over his condition, but not
enough to change his life. It hurts to see
this. Others are saddened over the sins of*
another. If we could but understand our sins
often times make others suffer, maybe we
would change. I do not mean to say that
this would make us a Christian, but maybe
We would stop “havisg our fun” at the ex-
pense of others. It hurts to see someone sad
dened because a loved one is lost in sin and
will enter eternity without hope. It hurts
to see so many in need when the cure is ever
