We extend a welcome to all teachers who do not go elsewhere and all new students. All who have no church of your own denomination to attend, are more than wel- come to one and all services.

Our Bible School reached a new record of 168 and next Sunday we are hop- ing and working, for 200. We in- vite all that have no church to attend, last Sunday and Mr. home to be with us at 9:45 to Hudgens acted as superintendent]study God's Word. Following our in his absence. I Bible School we had a real Spirit- We had for our missionary tual feast around the Communion speaker, Miss Whittum, of Still- h table , in remembrance of our water, and she left some goodlSavior's death for us. More peo- thoughts and ideas. , Our pastor preached for us at the 11:00 o'clock service, but in the evening dismissed; so those who wished could attend the re- vival at the Christian Church. Next Sunday we will have our regular services at all hours. Come, we will be looking for you. Do your part in the church work, as well as in serving our nation. We urge the children and the young people to come to League. Ephim Wall brought us some of the good he got out of the World's Fair and showed us some pictures. Among which .was a picture of the last cup that Jesus drank from. It was on display in a glass case and a guard standin by at all times. We extend our sympathy to Mrs. Issic Fulton and relatives in the loss of her nephew. Seventh Day Adventist Sabbath School 9:45; Bible study 11:00: As last Sunday was rainy, our attendance was small. Sabbath School lesson was "An- gel Ministery to Jesus." It is in- teresting to know that angels ministered to Jesus from before His birth to ater His death: so will they minister unto us if we will allow them to. An angel announced Jesus' birth, Luke 2:8-11 : an angel min- istered to Jesus after His temp- tation in the wilderness, Matt.: 4-11; an angel strengthened Jesus in the garden of Gethesmane, Luke 22:40-44; an angel rolled back the stone rom the tomb at His resurrection, Matt. 28:2; an angel announced Jesus' resurrect- ion, sayingt to Jesus followers, "Fear not ye; for 1 know ye seek Jesus---He is risen." Matt. 28: 5- 6. It is a comfort and a consola- tion to know that in these times, we need not to fear if we seek Jesus. An angel announced as Jesus was taken up from among His disciples, to heaven--- t . same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven." Acts 1: 9-11. We as a denomination, believe this return of Jesus is very near, we believe the signs, which were to tell when this great advent is near, are most all in the past. Are you ready for the great ad- vent? am I? Nxt Sabbath lesson is "Angel Ministery in the Gos- pel." ple came for this service and the morning message. We then en- joyed a basket dinner and an af- ternoon service. The revival meeting continues this week and through Wednes- day of next week. After the Wednesday evening services next week, the evangelistic party will prepare for going to Eugene, Oregon, where all three of them will attend the Bible college this winter. Three more Perkins young men will go with them to enter school: Carl Stufflebeam, Charlie Lee Fulton, and Crom- well Mansell. Irvin Harris and Alva Reynolds of the Olivet neighborhood left last week for Eugene, so Perkins is going to be well represented there this next year. After tonight there will be only six more sermons in the campaign. Great crowds are com- ing, to hear Reverend Fiscus preach his powerful sermons. His topics are timely, subjects that should command the thought of everyone today Up to Tuesday night there had been 33 responses to the invita- tions, about half of which were by persons wanting to make the confession. The song service, led by rs. Fiscus and accompanied by Miss Edna Fisk, is always enjoyable, as are the vocal numbers by Mrs. Fiscus. Her chalk pictures, too, are unusually fine, one of which she draws each Thursday night. Baptist Church Our pastor gave us two very fine sermons last Sunday. The one Sunday evening on the "Mark of the Beast" was espec- ially interesting,. He did not leave much room for any belief that the N R A has anything to do with it. We voted to dismiss services next Sunday evening to attend the revival now in progress at the Church of Christ, but unexpect- edly Evangelist Scotty called that he would be here Sunday evening to talk over and arrange for a revival meeting. This revi- val may be held soon after the close of the Church of Christ re- vival. All thoso who are not planning to attend church elsewhere Sun- day evening, are cordially in- vited to come and hear Scotty, the evangelist. Read the Journal ads. VE DO OUR PART ' Ford V-8 Sets New Mark In Elgin National Road Race Detroit, Michigan, Sept. 7- All previous records for the Fam- ous Elgin National Road Race were shattered when a Ford V-8 won the Joseph Weidenhoff Tro- phy Race for stock cars of A- merican manufacture in the 203- mile grind at Elgin, Illinois, last Saturday. The race was conduct- ed under the rules of the Contest Board of the American Automo- bile Association and was sanc- tioned by that organization. The winnin Ford V-8, piloted by Fred Frame, Indianapolis Speedway champion last year, lowered the mark set in 1920, in the last previons running of the race, by Ralph DePalma's famous race driver, in a high-powered racing, car. Frame's average speed was 80.22 miles per hour. DePalma's record was 79.5 miles per hour. The Ford V-8 nego- tiated the 203-mile course in two hours, 32 minutes, 6.1 seconds. Fifteen cars were entered, in- cluding  Fords, Chevrolets, a Ply- mouth and a Dodge. Fords took the first seven places in the e- vent. The Plymouth finished in eighth place. The other cars either were forced out of the race by mechanical failures or were flagged when the race was de- clared finished.

School Notes Bill Waite was heard sing:ing "Happy Days Are Gone Again," but nevertheless school has be- gun. All of the classes in high school have organized and are ready for the year's work. There are a number of new students this year, most of them having enrolled in the freshman class. These students are from Pleasant Valley, Vinco, Good- night, and Salem districts. The new books are almost all here so that study can really be- gin in earnest. Football practice has begun with. Mr. Pickett as coach, and the pep club is to be organized soon with Miss Allen as sponsor. The new school system pro- vides for a six-hour school day with only six one-hour periods instead of eight 45-minute per- iods. This eliminates some of the study hall periods. A part of the hour period is spent in recreation and the rest in study. of the twelfth when he stopped at the pits one minute and 20 The Y. P.

Knipe, III, received a let- ter last Saturday from Lowoll Godley, Payne county agent, with the information that a jun- ior 4-H Club fair would be held at Stillwater on September 12 and 13. There will be no county fair this year. Mr. and Mrs. Richard Grimm moved the equipment and stock of merchandise of the Let's Care, which they own and operate, in- to the east room of the building where they have been. The room was vacated first of the week by the Dixon Barber shop, and the cafe was moved Tuesday. its four perilous turns. A Ford V 8 entered and piloted by Frank Brisko, after complet- ing the morning, race over the 203-mile course for the Weiden- hoff trophy at an average speed of 77.98 miles per hour, was the lone stock car o finish in the af. ternoon race over the same dis- tance for the Elgin Watch com- pany trophy. The other four to I finish were specially-built racing] cars. Eight of the 14 entrants in 1 this race were forced out because] of mechanical trouble before half I of the distance had been run.] This Ford thus became the only car in either the stock car race or the free-for-all to complete the course twice on the day of the races. The highly consistent perform- ance of the Ford V-8 cars finish- ingj in the stock car race is re- vealed by the records. The differ- ence in elapsed time for the race Miss Dorris Brown and a girl friend, of Glenco, were in Per- kins on Tuesday of this week.

Lloyd Godley, County Agricul- tural agent, will be present to explain the Federal Wheat Ad- justment Act. It is important that farmers who plant only a few acres of wheat, as well as those who plant larger acreages, be present. The plan cannot be successful unless all wheat producers cooperate in perfecting, the organization nec- essary for carrying out the act. At this meeting a local com- mittee will be elected. It must be remembered that the entire plan is administered by the farmers and is under their direct control. Therefore, the utmost coopera- tion is needed. Lend your sup- port in putting" this plan over, Attend the meeting. Farmers who participate in the plan re- ceive a distinct advantage by re- ceiving, an immediate cash pay- ment and a guaranty of a parity price for the crops harvested in 1934 and 1935.
