PAGE SEVEN Service is Keynote Club Makes Good Start On j Publicity Week Ihe ilomlnst- Ing keyuote of Monday night's birth- ilay celebration in the Lcthbridge Hotary Club. The local Rotarians were observing the sixteenth anniversary nf the founding; of Rotary ami under ilia direction of Rotariaii Ilavidaon every phase of Rotary was explained to the members, old and new. Sixteen yoara ugo-Mn Jnen organized first Rotary club. Now moro. than eisht hundred cluba have charters and represent a mem- liersbip estimated to be 65.000. That is the. history of the organization shining light is "service." Tom l-'etterly told of the forming ot the first club by 7'anl Harris in Chicago. At that time tho four men. each rep- resenting different lines of endeavor, were actuated by lofty Ideals in bus- iness and professional intercourse am! they met at different offices. For a time the club was not lunueri1 and these meetings gave tuo early members some Idea of what a nee .inch an organization could be to its members. Gradually the full tledgo'd idea of Rotary grew until today the tram! spectacle of 65.000 men In sev- eral countries banded together for their mutual benefit and Qrst of all for the good of their communities, la hold up to the public. A Prophecy True Kotiirian R. W. Grcig tolt; Hie hist- ory of the growth of other clubs. Throe years after the first club saw daylight a sister club was brought in- to being in San Francisco and other clubs soon followed. At the first Rot- ary conrentlon ii. eras decided to form a national body. This convention was lield In 1810 iu Chicago. Forty dele; sutus weft snd fourteen of the then sixteen existing clubs ware represented. At this contention a prophecy was made that in eighty .rears one thousand Hotary clubs woald be formed and now It looks as it the one thousand clubs will eojne within the next twelve years. "Dad" l-alhrop told of the bringing the slogan, "He profits .Most Who Serves Beat." This statement h jnade In an address and was added to ihe ot Rotary and'was after- wards made the official slogan of Rotary. Kotarian Reikle told of the code of Mbics of Rotary. He remd them in full and told how they were drawn up. He explained the ethics ire different from the platform of Rotary In thai they deal with the conduct of Rotar- ians among themselves and other bus- inessmen. Limited Membership Commissioner Meech explained the benefits of'the limited membership. In the apparent weakness of tbe Rotary dubs, in the matter of small member- ships, hs said, lies Rotary's great strength. The membership Is not un- wieldy afid the community Is well rep resented." Concerted action Is easier lo obtain. Members are able to get a better understanding of businesses nf their fellow members. Billy Armstrong recounted how Rot- ary became International. In 1911 a convention waa held in Portland ami the following year it went to Duluth. Previous to this second convention Hotary club had been organized in Winnipeg and a request had been re- ceived from London, England, for a charter. Then forty clubs had been formed and in 1916 two hundred and fifty clubs were in existence with membership of B. B. Hoyt spoke of the high aver- age attendances at Hotary club meet- ings. No other organization has ever been formed which maintains such n high average attendance as the Rot- ary Clubs, he said. Out of the eight hundred clubs formed not one ot them has had to give up its charter. At oae :oastal point a club with a member- ship of sixty established the splendid record of having one hundred per cent, attendance for seven consecu- tive meetings. Tom Rldnath discussed Rotary ef- forts. He drew attention to the vidual service and to the efforts of as a whole. The other branch of endeavor was the concerted action of Rotary clubs, directed from the international headquarters or from tbe district headquarters. The biggest tiling the local club has done was the slagine of the carnival and fair in co- operation with Coaldale. It was a fin- ancial success and it cemented the good between Coaldale tad Lethbrldge and pror.eU a great hell) lo the Coaldale fair esnwlitlon. notary's outlook in fureljru lands was discussed by Joe Hodgson. That a great field of endeavor Itys before Rotary among toreiiiu-speaklng peoplo wau made plain by tie speaker. He drew R word picture of tho benefits to be derived through a better under- standing o( the problems of tbe dif- ferent lands, which would be brought out through Rotary. LIQUOR ACU916 Attitude Church Should is Subject of Fine Discount Take The second day of the mission a St. Mary's church ended with a at 8 o'clock. Hev. Rlckersteti took as the theme for his discourse St. Luke XV. verses 1 to 7. recounting the disdain of the Pharisees at ou Lord's action in associating with pub HcaojH .and sinners. The preacher drew a parallel between the action o: the Pharisees and-the gooc people of today In that they looket down upon evil doers and those who had fallen, instead of doing 'their best to help them. There Is something radically wrong with the ohnrch, this is the generally accepted atti- tude. He pointed out that Christ at tracted sinners to Him, in. spite ol the fact that he did not flatter the people or make light of Bin, always strongly denouncing It, nor snowing, them an easy way but of. it. He showed them a way it Is true, but it was a hard road which cessitated "taklug up the cross" and following Him. Christ attracted sin ners. simply because He loved them The Mission In the Church lie likened a mission In the church to the shepherd, who baring lost a sheep, left the niiiety and and went after that which wai lost. Or again to th; woman having lost a piece of silver and Marching dili- gently until she found it. The lost piece of silver more aptly illustrated the point in that It was of far more value as a coin tfyan the actual metal in it, as it was stamped with the royal sign. In the same way, ill who are baptised, are signed with the sign oC the cross and are therefore very precious as members ot the church. He also instanced- the parable-of the prodigal son. who was moved to return to his father, illustrating the repentant sinner moved to again at- tend church. Dualism In the short instruction which fol- lowed, Rev. Bickersteth pointed out that only invite a mock of sin, saying that it does not matter. Wise Men and thinking men, however, re- cognized the awfulness of sin and tried to account for its There was at one time old philosophy. called dualism, which taught the existence of two Gods, one good and one evil, each trying to win the human heart. He showed, however, that there was only one God and He a good one, and that the devil only existed by his will, the same as other creatures. God allowed this for our good. .ft defined sin as "any word or deed contrary to tbe known will of and that there were? two retiiul sin and deadly aln. Venial sin consisted of small acts ot commission or omission such as loss of temper and which everyone is guilty of. Deadly sin, however, is sin deliberately committed and which afterwards troubles our conscience. It is deadly because it cuts off souls from God. These two kinds of sin are mentioned In the first epistle general -of St. John, 5th Chapter, 16th verse, "A sin which is not unto death and there is a sin unto death." The only way out ia by repentance. Repentance involves (1) sorrow for our sto; (2) confession; (3) restitu- tion. All Christian people agree that we should confess our sins to God; but we should take the trouble to find In Uribcry Case in Supreme Court Points to.

This work, if the acreage is not to be re- duced by a very large percentage, will have to be rushed when spring finally breaks. Many observers are looking for a fairly early spring with conditions i favorable for spring plowing.

DATO'S GOVERNMENT MAY HAVE TO QUIT MADRID, Feb. con. rol of the chamber of deputies of i tho Spanish cortes, which meets to- morrow, would seem to have been lost in tho recent elections, by Prem- ier Dato. While he gained 27 seats, the number of followers of leaders who aro opposed to Doto appear to alvn.tho ODDOsitiou a majority In the chamber. Unless snouiu oiTouL some affiliation with other leaders, it would appear that his government would be compelled to resign. out what ,our sins are ana not merely confess in a general way that we are sinners. Children should make a habit of confessing to their mothers .nd thus form a habit -which will help hem not only in their childhood but their after life. He pointed out hat if, for instance, another person were beins blamed for a' sin we had ommitted, forglvenens would be ut- erly impossible unless we owned up ir, in other confessed. Sorrow for sin and confession were loth of no avail unless u-e also made estitutioii for our sin, such as for lampio. Ptolen property or other ways made good any dam- ge we had wrought. -After this we ould receive forgiveness.
