President Wilson went abroad and negotiated a treaty at the close of the world War which after a two year discussion our country did not see fit to ratify. After rejecting the league and adopting a policy of isolation we have witnessed the development of a feeling of depression and hopelessness in european affairs. Our country has become unsatisfied with its decision morally. There has been a great Omodei current of doubt and questioning As to whether we have done our Doty in world affairs. The economic breakdown of Europe has exerted a bad influence in our 4&untry politically socially and financially. Destroying a free mar in us a rav the Home paper that goes Home the Register is distinctly a Heck Ley Raleigh county and West Virginia newspaper a Home paper for the Home. It has no wire news service and if it did take one on it would he subordinated to the news of the Community and the state.

Now however with a government miss Beatrice Farmwald has been earnestly seeking to Lay the found visiting with friends around Roncker lion of economic rehabilitation it is Verte for the past week and reports and not As a member of the recent experts committee on settlement of the reparations question. He said in part a i object to having the great moral question of what America should do confused by a discussion of the merits of faults of the machinery through which she should make that decision effective. Whether i should go to a he Relief of my Friend and Comrade in a Hospital and Render what communities throughout the country it is reported a tin proportion of protestant Church members to the entire population is found to have remained constant since 1888, while in the same period attendance at sunday services dropped 47 per cent. Allowing for an increase in the protestant population of la per cent during the period the drop is equivalent to about 52 per cent. Why has attendance fallen off so greatly while membership has re about the same Hie a Din i could is one question. Whether a i t a i a i Konni i a a re. I a a. Ver Given is the increased facility i should go in a Buick or a Cadillac # or a Ford is another question. I object to delaying my decision or to be diverted from my main purpose by the sales talk of promoters of different vehicles. The first thing that i want to do is to Send word to my Friend in the Hospital that i am coming and then t will go by the Best conveyance which expediency puts at my disposal and if there be no other Way i will walk to his Relief. That is what i should like to have America declare to Europe. A i am not interested in going to a american people on a question of whether we shall join the league or whether we shall join the a world court or whether we shall make foreign Loans officially or unofficially hut i am interested in going to the american people for the answer As to whether or not in intend by every Reasor within our Power to Ai the ties for amusement and recreation without mention of the chief of these the automobile. A the Church As the dominant element in Tho social life of the Community a we read a has naturally suffered by this development. And it is natural that interest in the Church As an institution should decline with the decline of attendance upon its services. Under the circumstances the fact that Church membership and Church treasuries Are More than holding their own has a reassuring aspect.
