This is tho last night of tho old
year and in about two hours a brand
new year begins. I think one of the
happiest as well as the most fright-
ening occasions of the cntiro year is
New Year's Day. Happy because all
the mistakes and sins of the past
year are over nnd wo always kid our-
selves into thinking that we are going
to bo so much better and accomplish
so much moro in the new year. Some-
times we do do more but generally
we do not. I always think that a new
year is frightening becauso it holds
so many responsibilities for us and
demands that wo get busy and do
everything in the world that needs
doing and in our hearts we feel weak
and know that in all probability we
shall leave thousands of things un-
done that wo should do. Is it not a
glorious thing for us that Ho under-
stands everything even tho things
that wo "meant to do" and forgives
us all when we really ask and gives
us new opportunities with each new
I am wondering tonight how many
of you have been as happy and blessed
as wo have been during tho year that
is coming to a close. Dick Junior
and I aro all well and happy; what
more is there in reason to ask for?
Yesterday completed my second year
in Brazil and it seems moro liko six
months! It is amazing how time can
Christmas has just passed and we
are in tho very middle of our sum-
mer time. All the girls had new sum
mer dresses and new broad-brimmed
hats for 'Xmas day. On 'Xmas night
we had a lovely tree and program at
tho church. All of tho children took
part in tho program among them my
Junior. It was the first time ho has
had a part in a real program and it
struck me as funny to have my five
year old son standing up before a
largo audience and saying his first
Christmas speech in Portuguese.
Dick is out of town on a preaching
trip. I wanted to go with him but
tho trip was too expensivo and Junior
and I stayed here. I am speaking the
language fairly well now and am
teaching a class of fifteen year old
girls in tho Sunday School. I am
very happy to teach girls of this age
for I have always especially liked and
have had a certain sympathy with
I shall not write a long letter this
this time. When Dick returns I shall
ask him to write you a letter giving
you moro of the church news. He is
so much better at that sort of letter
than I am. So I shall close by asking
that all of you pray for us and the
work we aro trying to do here and
by wishing each of you a very pros-
perous happy and worthwhile New
Year. Let us all live closer to our
Saviour during tho New Year and
livo in such a way that when an
other year shall have come' to a close
we will not feel liko the year has
been wasted. .
Very sincerely yours
MRS. A. S. DETER.
Two colored brethren were bewail
ing tho hard times. "Boy" said one
of them "times is harder'n I ever seen

perty soon I'm gonna start prcachin'

to do it ag'in."

"The world has been created for
you. It would all be useless were you
not hero to enjoy it. There is no
limitation on you except the limita
tion you put on yourself. It's not what
ycur father' was before you. It's not
what circumstances you have had to
face. As long as you think these things
have anything to do with it you
won't accomplish anything. What has
gone heretofore doesn't enter the
picture; it's whot happens from here
on that counts."
Vision is necessary for success the
speaker said. "Without faith we're
nothing and can do nothing" ho said
"Money doesn't mean anything. We've
got more gold now than wo ever had
and yet wo think we're broke. Money

defeat of Wednesday night.
"At one timo last night I saw five
of as good basketball players as I
ever saw on the court" ho said re-
ferring to tho Simmons team. "But
what happened to the team in the
closing minutes? I'll tell you tho
student body laid down on the job.
And when it was over everybody
made a bee line for the door. You
lost because you wero not back of the
team. When they 'started getting be-
hind your enthusiasm cooled." But
he tempered his criticism a moment
later when he said:
"If I wasn't so ball headed I be-
lieve I'd register" said Mr. Walker
jokingly as ho complimented the bas-
ketball team the Cowgirls and the
band. "You have a great school and
a great spirit."

Clara Lou Sheridan a delightfully
piquant young miss from Dallas ty-
ulcally modern was one of the fow
winners to know her own good points
without the experts' advice. A slight-
ly changed coiffure and just enough
moke-up to make her register b'eforo
the cameras was sufficient.
Alfred Delcambre also of Dallas
has a role in the picture.
The Queen opens the week with
"Eight Girls in a Boat" playing Sun-
