HONORING OUR MEN IN SERVICE
Today, July, 17, we honor our American Heroes: we pay tribute to the
men who are .serving our country—soldiers, sailors, marines and the men
who are, or will, direct our governmental affairs during all this most try-
The United Nations are confronted by a great task—the preservation of
our free way of life—something so vital, so dear, that no sacrifice is too
great to ask. Each one must realize that while fighting for our very exis-
tence, we must all work and pull together for Victory. The man at the
front and the max in public office must each do his job, but this alone is
not enough. It’s up to every American to pitch in and do his 91- her part.
There are many war-time duties that we must do. We may do volun-
teer civilian defense work, participate in the salvage drives, conserve our
own property through repair and good care; buy war bonds and stamps,
and lastly, exercise our privilege of citizenship by voting for the men best
fitted to serve a free and God-fearing America.
Let’s not just talk—let’s show our American Heroes how much we ap-
preciate them by backing them up and furnishing them with equipment
and by voting for men of high ideals, purposes and principles, who will
guarantee a free Democracy that the boys will be proud of when they re-
THE REVIVAL GOD WANTS US TO
HAVE will be the sermon at the 11
o’clock service. We know that God
is interested in all that we do, “For
the eyes of the Lord are upon the
righteous.” God wants us to have a
revival. Jesus wants it too, “who al-
so maketh intercession for us.”
REV. BILL MORGAN SMITH, pas-
tor of the Methodist Church, will be
our guest speaker Sunday night at
the Open Air Service. We are glad to
have Bro. Smith and the Methodist
Church to be with us in an enjoy-
able evening service.
The Community Singing begins at
S:30 with great hymns' of the ages
over the public address system. Come
out to the Open Air Service with us,
and you’ll find out where the coolest
place in town is.

Bethany Temple Baptist Church,
corner Peach Tree and Seagoville Rd.
began a two weeks revival last Sun-
day, July 12, and will close Sunday,
July 26. Splendid crowds, and deep
and prayerful interest marked the
first. day’s services. A large Junior
Choir, under the direction of Mrs.
W. A. Roberts, wife of the pastor, is
one of the outstanding features of
the revival. There are three groups
prayer meetings each evening from
8:30 to 9:00, one each for men, wo-
men, and young people. The Junior
Choir also meets at 8:30. A warm
welcome awaits you, and an earnest
invitation is extended to you, so come
and enjoy this revival with us.
Members of the Bethany Temple
Baptist Church gave their new pas-
tor Rev. W. A. Roberts and his wife
a surprise old fashioned “pounding”
last Thursday evening at their home
op Elam Road, just west of the end
of the pavement on Buckner Blvd. A
lovely shower of groceries and canned
goods and household articles was
given. Delicious refreshments of ice-
cold punch and cakes of all kinds was
served to the 38 people who were in
attendance. The pastor and his wife
deeply appreciated the kind of a
“pounding” the church was so
thoughtful and kind to give to them,
as well as the warm welcome that
has been extended to them by the en-
tire church family.
W. E. Carder, who is working on a
government project at Paris, Texas,

afternoon. Let us match the enthu-
siasm and interest of our fine S. S.
Superintendent, and gladden his
heart by filling all of our depart-
ments and classes to the overflow-
