They are making their home in Upper Darby, Pa. Sgt. Cressman, Avalon High School Almnni, Class of '4', enlisted for service in the Army Air Corps. He spent fif- teen months as gunner on a B-17 in the European Theatre of War. Re- turning to the States, he is now stat- ioned at Chatham Field, Georgia, as an instructor on the B-29. Prior to Arthurs' enlistment, he was one of the crew who gave our summer tourists thrilling rides in the speed boats, Miss Catalina I and II. A THANK YOU The Avalon War Bond Committee deeply appreciates the efforts put forth by the volunteer workers who helped to put over the Mighty 7th War Bond Drive. Mr. Laurin, chairman, states that by their untiring services, Avalon doubled her quota. GERMAN WEREWOLVES Although news about the activities of German werewolves has been scant, there are indications that this type of resistance to Allied occupation of the Reich is increasing. American army cars are now report- ed to be equipped with blades for cut- ting wires stretched across roads at night by the Nazi underground. At least one American soldier has been reported murdered, and the bomb which exploded a few weeks ago in a building occupied by Allied authorities was hardly the work of small boys. As time goes on and the Germans further recover from the stunning ef- fects of defeat, Nazi underground ac- tivities may become still more intense. It may require FBI technique, rather than ordinary police methods, to keep it at a minimum. But there should be no hesit.ancy about dealing aggres- sively, instead of passively, with crime in Germany. There are undoubtedly many would-be fuehrers on the loose who will be active in trying to make the work of occupation forces not only disagreeable but dangerous. The more of these that are eliminated the fewer aspirants there will be for the role that Hitler once portrayed. Keeping our troops in Germany over a long period of time will not he easy either for the Germans or for our soldiers, but it is one of the problems of victory and is one of the best means of preventing a revival of nfilitarism. oN vo wcroRr--- A gun battle between two Gary, Indiana, undertakers over who would bury a deceased war worker ended in death for one of them and the wound- ing of three other persons. A battle-scarred B-17 (Fl~,ing For- tress) came to rest at Williamsport. Pa airport. Her Army crew climbed out, leaving the "Eager Beaver" grounded 'forever. It will be a labora- tory for aviation students at Williams- port Technical Institute.

He had his own answer, very simple, child-like and for life's essentials, adequate: "One who has given his heart to Christ". However, that's only the "acorn" and unless it follows the acorn's course through root and stem and leaf and out-reaching branches to feed on sun and rain and the night's dew, and the whistling wind and the winter's cold-- through all seasons, th1"ough sfO~'tl~d stress, it never attains Unless the acorn is grounded and rooted, the germ of life within soon withers and dies. And dead acorns are poor food even for squirrels. That seems to be the inexorable law of nature and life. Li4e is growth and growth requires nourish- ment for body, mind and soul--the whole being and nature of man. And that demands God in the life, even as the acorn demands Him in nature. I like the way Alfred Noyes puts it: "Blessed is he who bears within his breast A God, a true ideal and obeys it, Whether through Art, or Science, or a life Of simple goodness. There is the deep source Of all good thoughts and actions, it reflects Light from the Infinate." And was not that what the Psalmist had in mind when he sang ? "Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the wicked, Nor standeth in the way of sinners, Nor sitteth in the seat of the scorn- ful-(negative living, husks) But his delight is in the law of the Lord ; And in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by streams of water, That bringeth forth it.s fruit in its season, Whose leaf also doth not wither; And whatsoever he doeth shall pros- per". Sunday morning I hope to discuss this theme "Being a Clhristian" with my congregation. If you have no con- flicting duty, nor any good excuse for stayingaway, you might help by coming. C. Telford Erickson Community Church CHRISTIAN SCIENCE TEXT IS 'SACRAMENT' The Golden Text in the Sunday Lesson-Sermon on "Sacrament" in all branches of The Mother Church, The First C:hurch of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, was from I Corinthians: "As often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come." The Lesson-Sermon included this se- lection from the Psalms: "Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy loving kindness: according tmto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out uzy transgressions. Wash me th)r- oughly 4tom nfine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin . . . Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within men . . . O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise . . . The sacri- fices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart. O God, thou wilt not despise." In "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mary Baker Eddy said, "The baptism of Spirit washing the body of all the impurities of flesh, signifies that the pure in heart see God and are approaching spiritual Life and its demonstration." "Denial of the claims of matter is a great step to- wards the joys of Spirit, towards hu- man freedom and the final triumph over the body."
