If not, you shouhl in some quiet hour; It's a glorious thing to do: For you'll find that back of the pomp and powder Most men have a goal in view, They'll tell you then that their aim is not The clink of the yellow goht; That not in the worldly things they've got Would they have their stories told. They'll say the joys that they treasur: most. Are their good friends, tried and flue, And an honest name for their own to boast And peace when the day is through. I've talked with men and I think I know What's under the toughened skin. I've seen their eyes grow bright and glow With the fire that burns within. And back of the gold and back of the fame And back of the selfish strife, In most men's breasts you'll find the flame Of the nobler things of life. WOODROW WILSON By Mason J. Merrihew Man of wisdom, clear of sight, Dwelling in that sphere where Light-- Halo o'er the wreck of ages, Casts o'er history's frenzied pages Beams of golden light, that sages Shed to guide mankind aright. Statesman, knowing that the might And the honor of a nation Bided not in strife or war, Or the things men battle for On the gory fields of carnage, Or the wrong in which they engage. Herald, he, of nobler ideals, Strong to endure ignoble ordeals Cast into his path by vultures In ruthless administration, Preying, in the guise of Cultures, Upon dupes they led to battle Like dull herds of driven cattle To the slaughter. Shame on mankind, Who require the best they can find To lead them to certain Freedom, Yet they follow fools to slavedom. Martyr, he, to soul ambition, Yearning to fend the World's demis- slon, Working- so hard for Brotherhood And our race's fond Motherhood, Ever, with the voice or Reason Crying down the trend of treason. Loved by all, who Lincoln love; Held by the Faith they each (lid prove. St'atesmen, Emancipators, each In death their gospel still will preach; Beside the Standard they held high, A Worht flag, yet, will proudly fly, And down the halls of love and fame ~Vill echo Woodrow Wilson's name, While heart to heart and hand in band The two great Liberators stand In the blest sphere of spirit land, With yearning souls for seed each sowed Along life's hard and thankless road, Yet wielding still a force benign And searching for a beacon sign To say, that they for whom each died Will cause their glorious work to bide And grow to grace life's eventide. God grant they both shall shortly see Their Ideals blossom to LIBERTY. Avalon, March 6th, 1924. Sometimes people think of a Sunday School as a "sissy" affair, but that term cannot properly be applied to the Community (Congregational) Church school. For several months there has been an attendance contest between the boys and girls, in which the boys held a steady lead and came out with much greater total attendance than the girls. The climax will be at 7 p. m. tomorrow, when the girls will provide a social at the church for the winners. All members of the Sunday School are invited. Mr. Fred Reed planted a number of almond trees in the grounds of his Crescent avenue home last week. --Edgar A. Guest. CHURCH IMPROVEMENTS Last week the auditorium of the Comnmnity (Congregational) Church was repapered. The walls were cover- ed with a light "oatmeal" paper, the new ceiling is cream colored, and an artistic narrow border completes the combination. The new firm of C. C. Milbourne and W. B. Cullen of 229 Metropole avenue, were the artists. The lighter parts of the stained glass windows were treated to remove the glare on the eyes of the audience. Other improvements are planned for the near future. To help pay for the above, the La- (lies' Aid Society is planning for a leg- of-lamb supper at the church at 6:00 p. m., on Tuesday, March 25th.
