Inwardly a town can be found in Thia country the Long for a a skyscraper of which it May boast. That does not the taller the building the prouder the town. Competition for extra stories is keen and each town with a new building challenges to each with a mighty voice. It is interesting to note that Berlin has decided again formally against the erection of a a a skyscraper there. The German capital will remain a City of buildings limited to five stories in height. The decision 13 based on the Contention that the tall building denies the occupants of the lower floors their needed amount of air and Light. There is another reason supporting the Berlin position against the skyscraper that is not mentioned in the report of the judgment. Credited to it or not otherwise ered a. ,. T ,.

As autumn a sheaves yield us material Joy so May the spirit in which we reap them bring us to walk with thee love thy Sun upon its throne and thy wind and rain which sweeten the world. Free us from Money a madness and treason from the Poison of self and the curse of morbidity.

Over and above and beyond our Man made Ede less baubles o fair and faultless father we adore thee hear our prayer hold not thy peace at our Praise and Crown us As thou Dost All nature with the glory of thy godhood. Amen. The police were called on at. Detroit to Stop rioting due to the attack election Day on Kun flux Headquarters. The klan seems to incite / trouble even if it must of at the receiving end. Which certain architectural thought of necessity is devoted. The skyscraper City of the world of course is new York and it is new York which has the Best justification for projecting buildings High in the air. The realty available there for business purposes or for residential purposes for that matter is definitely limited. To utilize Manhattan Island to its utmost inspires the Engineer to erect taller and taller buildings. Nearly All cities that have followed the new York Lead Are motivated largely by competitive impulses. A sort of sheep like following of the Metropolis plan begins it and the movement spreads with each Little City and town Basing its claim to notice on the height of its tallest building regardless of the buildings Beauty or Utility. Many a building in the Quot Sticks has gone up an extra Story or two at a very greatly increased Cost of construction throughout when adjoining land for a wider spread of the Structure was available at comparatively Small Cost. Where land is Worth Many thousands of dollars to the Square foot the unusual height of buildings is justified by economic Force but the smaller cities with wide expanse of territory on which to build would add to their Beauty and detract nothing from their serviceability by spreading out and devoting More attention to the construction of Quality buildings limited to the Berlin Standard or some other Standard that discourages excessive height. This is particularly True in these Days when Quot parking space is one of the fundamental problems of business in the average City or town. Much like another. No seems to be in sight. He is really just going Over his bad stretch of Road and even if he has to travel it for three or four years it will do him no harm for it will teach him patience which is valuable to the journeys end. Progress j m p conference hears reports by its pastors today it is Rue to paraphrase the old hymn that some seem to be carried to the skies on flowery Beds of ease while others fight to win the prize or Wade through bloody seas but life is filled with inequalities and they never seem to make a great Deal of difference. In the end the Man who keeps plugging along gets there if he thinks while he plugs and has a definite idea of where he is going. Let him be sure of that and the Road May not seem so Dull and uninteresting for he will know that every Day will carry him Over the desolate stretches steadily and that by and by he will be rewarded with the sight of a Mountain Valley. There Are Many roads in the desert but to some of us they Are necessary because the desert lies Between us and the mountains. And if we Are really determined to gain the mountains we must Harden ourselves to trouble for a while forget the sting of the Sand and the bite of the Alkali dust and keep going cheered by the thought that we Are on the Only Road that will fake us there.

Reid continued from Page i authorities Are to investigate Grade crossing Accident in Georgia which resulted in the death of several children. They will find no doubt that the bus Driver reached the Grade crossing at the same time of the train s arrival. The new governor of new Jersey pledges himself to work for the modification by Congress of the volstead Law. Vell in so doing the governor can keep his promises and Congress will hardly notice his activities. The religious element in Virginia voting the fact is revealed that a spurious report to the effect that one Man on the democratic ticket in Virginia was a member of the knights of Columbus and therefore Catholic was responsible for a heavy Adverse vote for him. His of j potent got the greatest strength that any Republican has drawn in a general election in Virginia in Many years. He missed election but he did no to miss it by any great margin. What the influence of the religious prejudice had has not been weighed sufficiently for any conclusions to be drawn but enough is known to show the s Lgth of the protestant objection to Catholic candidate in Virginia. Many have said that the same objection would be expressed generally in the South if a Catholic were nominated for the presidency. In other words. Al Smith might split the solid South if he were picked As the democratic Standard bearer but there might be worse things happen to the South than a split. The a a solid South is politically negligible i Lithe nation since it always is already even the president Speaks of hoping to visit the South quite As he might speak of let desire to tour Mexico or Central America. Group were advancing a Century ago but the methodist protestant continues his distinct and separate course thriving without Bishops and operating under a somewhat More democratic government but adhering still to the fundamentals of the Mother Church. When the denomination comes to the Celebration of its Centennial three years hence it will have a great showing of Church strength to make and a record to hold up of great accomplishments. Every High Point citizen has an added interest in methodist protestant activities and successes in the conference of this state because All High Point is concerned with the development of the local College which is one of the big educational undertakings of the denomination. The Road in the desert by John Blake letters november i 1925. Editor of the Enterprise please give space in your paper for the following letter a sus Christ was a a a Hardshell a therefore he was the founder of the a a Hardshell doctrine John 6-44, 60. 65. 66. In his doctrine he taught that Many a works were nothing it was the spirit that quicken and the Flash profit eth nothing. John 6-63, and that god was their teacher. It was written in the prophets they shall All be taught of god. Every Man therefore that hath heard and Learned of the father cometh unto me. John 6-45. Jesus therefore taught that the people were taught of god and not of Man. And some of the people did not believe his doctrine As they do not today and they said this is an hard saying who can hear it. John 6-80, so some of our modernist like or. Stephens revised the word hard rating to the enemy of that doctrine in that Day called them hard Sayers and the enemy of that doctrine today like or. Stephens Calls us if the enemy of Christ s doctrine called him an hard Sayer As recorded in John 6-60. No wonder the same enemy Calls us a hard shells today. They received it from their fore fathers handed Down to them and they Are keeping he traditions of their fathers. The Law of the lord is perfect converting the soul. Spa. 19-7, and All the inhabitants of the Earth Are reputed As nothing and he doth according to his will in the army of heaven and among the inhabitants of Earth and none can stay his hand or say unto him what Doest thou Dan. 4-3 5. So you see god does his will perfect and none can hinder him. But or. Stephens you done to believe the Greensboro record comes out for a. M. Scales for a any office to which he May that a a sweeping commitment but probably not nearly As reckless As it sounds. Or. Scales aspires conservatively. The announcement that the Piedmont and Northern directors Are moving to secure right of Way from Charlotte northward is fair indication that the death of or. Duke will not interfere with the proposed Extension of the electrical Railroad. The courier journal at Louisville commenting on the Republican Victory in town charges that the g. O. P. Used slugging shooting and repeaters. The republicans signify they will enter suit so it seems safer in Kentucky to say rifles. It with the Charlotte observer writes a a prohibition is the Law of the land. For that reason the Republican candidate for governor of new Jersey is to be Given greater Praise for his defeat because he chose to be Defeated a within the Law a than to be elected on a platform which la a Defiance of established Law. In a strict analysis of the new Jersey outcome a Democrat has been elected As representative of an element in rebellion against Law and Law the Republican governor was quite right in going Down to defeat for what he believed right but the Winner is also a a within the Law a when he runs for office on a platform of opposition to what is the statutory Law now there was a time when the open Saloon was a a the Law but that did t place outside the Law any candidate who elected to run a or office on a dry ticket. The Law s not As that of the medes and persians. The Coin Feeken a in session Here the North Carolina methodist protestant conference in session Here is the controlling Church body of the denomination in this state and it has a particularly Hearty Welcome to High Point. The denomination has seen fit to choose this City for the location of the College of the conference and Back of the High Point College is Tho moral and financial support of North Carolina methodist protestantism. No great percentage of the laity know the history of the denomination. Soon the methodist protestants will be celebrating their Hundredth anniversary As a Church. They started their denominational life with a body of about 5,000 members of the methodist episcopal Church who were forced out by that denomination because of what were regarded in 1828 As their Radical views of Church organization. These prototypes of the present m. were protestants against the centralization of Power in the m. E. Church. They suggested for instance that the Bishop instead of holding office for life should come tip after some years of office holding for re election or supplanting. There were other Points of difference Between them and the stricter Brethren of tile methodist episcopal Church nearly All of them occurring Over the matter of Church government rather than Over Creed. In All the essentials therefore other than these matters of government the methodists protestant and episcopal Are close together. Since the methodist protestants organized a separate denomination time has brought their former Brethren around to the practice of some of the ideas that the protest the City Man was tired and disgusted. He had travelled three Days on a j this because you said a a you Felt that Railroad train and two Days in a isome Hardshell were standing r. It in the Way of some converts. Jesus four horse Wagon. Now he was on the hard Ayer of Hardshell said horseback. J woe unto you scribes and Shari the guide who Rode ahead of j sees hypocrites for you Compass sea him pointed to a Mountain which Jand land to make one convert and ,. T. When he is made you make him looked ten or twelve Miles Distant athe a a i two fold More the child than More than a Hun yourselves. It. 23-15, Jesus says in but was really dred. V a a that s the place a he said. A we go this Way he pointed to a Dusty winding Trail which led Down toward a hot Sandy Plain. Nothing was to be seen on either Side of it but Cactus and Mesquite Bushes and White patches where the Sand was encrusted with acrid bitter Alkali. A a we keep on this Road for three Days a said the guide. The City Man scowled a a Why do we have to take this terrible Road. We be had trouble enough already with bad a because this is the Only Road that will take us where we Are going a said the guide. A of course if we Wasny to going nowhere any Road would be just As the City Man smiled feebly and spurred on his horse. And at the end of the journey when he was encamped beside a sparkling Stream in a Green Mountain Valley j with wild Flowers Blooming around i lira. And a Cool Breeze blowing from a Mountain top not far away i he Felt that the Long Dusty Road was Worth taking. Most roads that a Are going anywhere Quot Are the Diotis some where along the Way. Some of them Are tedious up to the last few Miles. But better hard roads to desirable destinations than \ Beautiful roads that end in nothing. I have lately talked to a Young Man just out of College who is beginning his business life on a rather tiresome Road and is worried about it. He does not seem to be getting a a j very fast. He could do better work than lie is being Given to do More interesting work. One Day is the same scriptures above in John i came Down from heaven not to do mine own will but to do the will of him that sent me and he also says in it. 28 to his disciples go teach All National that All Power is Given into my hands and because the �?�hardshell3�?� believe what Christ the a hard Sayers said about it the a soft Shell or. Stephens says it came from the pit of hell and of course if he does no to believe the founder Christ he would not believe his body Hardshell for Christ that hard Sayer said they hated me and they will also hate you. Or. Stephens the old Hardshell. Paul said in romans 11-28, 29. 30 romans 6-23. That the gift of god which is eternal life is without repentance and that they receive this in their unbelief. Say. Or. Stephens do you think Paul told a a hell pit lie a of course i suppose you do hut. Paul also said let god be True and every Man a liar. So we a a Hardshell will take Paul sword for it. Paul said to the philippians being confident of this very thing that he which hath begun a Good work in you will perform it until the Day of Jesus Christ. Phil. 1-6. The Hardshell believe this with All other scriptures. Or. Stephens you done to believe this which Paul said because you Are afraid some a hard Shell will stand in the Way and Stop him. You gave them a Good name for honesty and also attribute lots of Honor to them As having great Power even above god. Paul said in Eph. 1-4, that they were chosen in Christ before the foundation of the world an predestinated unto the adoption Quot of children. A. Morton. High Point. N. Ence a position or. A. G.

The conference adjourned at noon Blit met again at 2 of clock this afternoon with a devotional program. These exercises were followed by an address by or. To h. Lewis president of the general conference. Or. Lewis made the first of a series of addresses which he will deliver this week on a utne minister and his own or. Lewis address was to be followed this afternoon by a round table discussion of Rural Church life in North Carolina. Addresses of Welcome the visitors were formally welcomed to the City last night by Rev. Charles p. Coble pastor of the first presbyterian Church. Or. George r. Brown introduced or. Coble As the Dean of High Point ministers. Or. Coble in his address of Welcome said there were three reasons Why he was glad to have the privilege of welcoming the visitors Here. The first reason he said is because his Mother was a methodist protestant second because he loved the pastor of the methodist protestant Church and the last was attributed to the fact that All the churches Here have been More closely United As the result of a series of meetings. A we feel a said or. Coble a that we Are welcoming you to one of the finest towns in North Carolina a City which i Hope is cleaner and nearer to god than it has Ever been before. And we Are glad to Welcome you because we believe the methodist protestant Church is True to the great principles of the response to the Welcome address was by Rev. N. G. Bethea of Lexington. He spoke of the wonderful Opportunity of service which the Church Here has inasmuch As it is located in the same town with High Point College. A a we thank you for your Welcome a he said. A a and we have already had a foretaste of your hospitality in the Homes in which we have gone. We count it a privilege to be Here and wet ust that our stay May not be damaging but that it May be the other address of Welcome was delivered by mayor h. A. Moffitt yesterday afternoon. The mayor spoke briefly but he assured the visitors that High Point was delighted to have them As its guests or. Newell Speaks the chief speaker last night was or. W. A. Newell of mount airy a member of the Western North Carolina annual methodist episcopal conference. The theme of or. Newell a address was a a problems of the Rural he pointed out that the chief problem of the Rural Church is organization and the the Rural Church is not adapted to function with the Many organizations which Are found in the town and City churches. Living conditions and customs of Rural people make it difficult to maintain the Well organized Rural Church he said. Or. Newell discussed the problem of maintaining the Rural Church. Moving of the population from country to town was cited As a hindrance to Progress and growth of the Rural churches while the migration to other states was pointed out As another hindrance. Rural Church is dying a the Rural Church is dying be cause it ought to die a was a striking statement made by the speaker. Later in explaining the statement he said there Are too Many Small weak churches in the Rural communities. There is no need of two methodist churches in any one Community he averred. As a solution to this problem the speaker suggested the advantages of consolidation of churches or the reduction of the number of churches in any Given Community where there Are not enough people to maintain the separate churches. Advantages of the Highway with regard to the location of the Public schools were stressed by or. Newell and he asserted that the Church located away from the Highway will not thrive. Supervisory authority was declared to be the solution in strengthening the Rural churches Aud the advantages of the presiding elder were pointed out As a Means of organizing and maintaining the Rural Church. At the business session held yesterday afternoon a Telegram was read from Rev. N. M. Harrison Dean of High Point College who is taking Post graduate work at Chi Cago University. The message conveyed greetings to the conference.

Jfe said that something is wrong with rotary if there is anything essentially wrong with the spirit of the rotarian and rotary is All right if the individual is sound in his ethics.
