This is my High School Alumni Reunion weekend . . . my 48th! Those of us that still drive at night, not in the hospital, and can remember where we are meeting will gather to share “good old days” memories. Many of them will be the same stories we tell each year, although with added embellishments. There are many wonderful stories from the “golden days” but here is one of my favorites . . . One evening a teenager was talking to his grandfather about current events. The grandson asked what the grandfather thought about the shootings at school, the computer age, and just things in general. The grandfather replied, “Well, let me think a minute . . . I was born before television, penicillin, polio shots, frozen foods, Xerox, contact lenses, Frisbees and the pill. There was no radar, credit cards, laser beams or ball-point pens. Man had not invented pantyhose, air conditioners, dishwashers, clothes dryers (clothes were hung out to dry in the fresh air), electric blankets, and man hadn’t yet walked on the moon. Your Grandmother and I got married first-and then lived together. Every family had a father and a mother, and every boy over 14 had a rifle that his dad taught him how to use and respect. And they went hunting and fishing together. Until I was 25, I called every man older than I, ‘Sir’- and after I turned 25, I still called policemen and every man with a title, “Sir.’ Sundays were set aside for going to church as a family, helping those in need, and visiting with family or neighbors. (I miss that most.) We were before computer-dating, dual careers, daycare centers, and group therapy. Our lives were governed by the Ten Commandments, good judgment, and common sense. We were taught to know the difference between right and wrong and to stand up and take responsibility for our actions. Serving your country was a privilege; living in this country was a bigger privilege. We thought fast food was what people ate during Lent. Having a meaningful relationship meant getting along with your cousins. Draft dodgers were people who closed their front doors when the evening breeze started. Time-sharing meant time the family spent together in the evenings and weekends — not purchasing condominiums. We never heard of FM radios, tape decks, CDs, electric typewriters, yogurt, or guys wearing earrings. We listened to the Big Bands, Jack Benny, and the President’s speeches on our radios. And I don’t ever remember any kid blowing his brains out listening to Tommy Dorsey. If you saw anything with ‘Made in Japan ‘ on it, it was junk. The term ‘making out’ referred to how you did on your school exam. Pizza Hut, McDonald’s, and instant coffee were unheard of. We had 5 &10-cent stores where you could actually buy things for 5 and 10 cents. Ice-cream cones, phone calls, rides on a streetcar, and a Pepsi were all a nickel. And if you didn’t want to splurge, you could spend your nickel on enough stamps to mail 1 letter and 2 postcards. You could buy a new Chevy Coupe for $600 but who could afford one? Too bad, because gas was 11 cents a gallon. In my day “grass” was mowed, “coke” was a cold drink, “pot” was something your mother cooked in and “rock music” was your grandmother’s lullaby. “Aids” were helpers in the Principal’s office, “chip” meant a piece of wood, “hardware” was found in a hardware store and “software” wasn’t even a word. And we were the last generation to actually believe that a lady needed a husband to have a baby. No wonder people call us “old and confused” and say there is a generation gap... and I am only 65 years old. —CC— And then there are the church hymns for the over-60 crowd ... 1. Precious Lord, Take My Hand . . . And Help Me Up. 2. It Is Well With My Soul . . . But My Knees Hurt 3. Nobody Know The Trouble I Have Seeing 4. Just A Slower Walk With Thee 5. Count Your Many Birthdays, Name Them One By One

Country Comments from Page 2 shared “party lines” with eavesdropping neighbors. And even politicians weren’t immune to this nuisance. During the 1960 presidential race, candidate Hubert Humphrey hosted a TV call-in show, only to be interrupted by an impatient neighbor demanding Humphrey hang up and free the line. The ever-polite Humphrey followed orders! Then there was the excruciatingly slow rotary dial. You could almost write a letter in the time it took to dial a friend. The higher the number, the slower the rotation, which is why the phone company gave low-numbered area codes to the biggest cities (e.g., 212 for New York, 213 for Los Angeles). Given that consideration, it’s still unclear why England chose 9-9-9 as its first emergency number. Perhaps it’s that famous British dry wit? But even the rotary dial was better than the alternative: Rural callers had to hand crank a generator to alert the operator they wanted to place a call. The biggest improvement over the years has to be sound quality. When Thomas Watson was testing early phones, he had to shout so loudly that his landlady threatened to evict him. Since engineering is very tough if you’re homeless, Watson rolled himself in a blanket to muffle the noise. Anyway, just think of all the time you’re saving by not searching for change for pay phones. Back in the day, even the rich had to dig for nickels! Miserly billionaire J. Paul Getty installed a pay phone in his mansion so he didn’t have to foot the bill for his guests’ calls. We’re guessing he wouldn’t be springing for unlimited minutes either.

Allen Idle Time Campers
was full of idle time campers. It meant it was the home of a very successful business that was started in Allen by the E. C. Peay family. I was in Allen two weeks ago and the lot where they began business (where the old Sunray Refinery was located) was covered with new campers and RVs. Allen may have died when the Sunray Refinery moved and it may have if someone had not sold E C. Peay a sports vehicle—camper--whose workmanship was so shoddy that it fell apart. So he built his own and when he finished it someone wanted to buy it and he sold it and built another one. This happened again and again until the town almost by accident was getting a new business.
The firm did not start numbering the number of sales until 1968 and since then, millions of campers have been sold and are still in demand. Sales had approached the $3 million mark by 1972. Townspeople

A hue and cry has been heard across the nation as we learned that Obama’s buddies are listening in on our phone calls as well as reading our email—especially those messages to Pakistan and Tripoli. The cry has lessened some in the past week as Americans learned that this eavesdropping may have saved our bacon a time or two from terrorist attacks. Still, Democrats remain pretty mad at George Bush (CNN says he started this stuff so he is responsible) while Fox News viewers are angry with Obama for taking this to new and unheard of levels. You have to wonder how Obama gets anything done just sitting there listening on his headsets all the time. One segment of our population that didn’t get excited at the news of this loss of civil liberties and privacy was the older folks that live in Stonewall. I grew up over there (my number was “17”) and I know. You may have thought that life was simpler
in those by-gone days but they weren’t. You had to know what you were doing. You had to know to crank the phone while it was hung up before you picked up and listened for Myrtle. Nothing happened until she made it happen. Our calls were monitored (for quality and content) by Mrs. Morris. Although the big walnut (or was it Oak?) switchboard was pretty enormous, Myrtle knew every number, each circuit and monitored calls because she needed to know when we answered (so she could quit ringing) and when we finished so she could pull the plug. I knew one high school boy who went to the Main Café to call his sweetie on the payphone so Myrtle couldn’t listen. Unfortunately, he didn’t know she operated the payphones too. Myrtle Morris was resourceful and taught me
how to operate the board knowing my curiosity would cause me to stop by to give her a break so she could go to Earl Cradduck’s for some groceries. Sadly, I learned she had taught others to do the same thing for the same reasons. I thought I was the only one at the time. The best part of filling in was I got to listen in for a little while. The fact was we never minded her listening in and knowing so much about our lives. In fact kids called her to chat—sometimes on the pretexts of asking her what time it was. After all, she had a large man’s watch hanging on the board. I remember calling “17” one time and Myrtle said, “Your mom has gone to Ada.” Her finger was on the pulse of Stonewall and I think we were all pretty happy to have it that way. And while we are pretty sure Obama is listening in, I don’t know
Light from God’s Word
Mark Legg, Allen church of Christ
“What could be changed that would make the church more like God meant it to be?” A question like this was asked to nearly 500 high school students. They gave their opinions for improvement in an amazing number of areas, such as the worship, evangelism, member’s attitudes, relationships, the preacher’s sermons and

many others. Thinking of their comments, one is reminded that it is very easy to find fault and to criticize. There is very little in existence that can’t be improved. And, even though the pattern for the church as given by God is perfect, we humans in our effort to fulfill that perfection have miserably failed. It seems very typical of us humans to look for the fault in others and to be blind to our own failings. And, it fills us with pride to be able to find fault with others. Isn’t the church composed of people? The word “church” refers to people who are called out of the world to belong to God. Therefore, if the church is to be what God intended, we who are member of the

church must seek to be what God intended. If anything needs to be changed to make the church more like God meant, it is each of us that needs to be changed. As our individual lives are changed to be what God intended, the church will be changed to be what God intended. It is so easy to conceive of the church as some impersonal entity not associated with us personally, but as members of the church, we are the church. It is not the perfect pattern for the church as given by Jesus Christ that needs to be changed, but it is you and I as individual member of Christ’s body that needs to grow into the likeness of Christ. May God help us to each individually be what God intended!

Atwood First Baptist News
The Atwood Baptist news that should have been in last week’s paper is floating around in cyberspace somewhere. If you come across it, please send it home. Needless to say, I’m not happy with the new, improved version of my email system. And I’m sure you’ll find this one in cyberspace too if it isn’t in the paper.
Our church will have Vacation Bible School on July 22-26th from 5:30 to 7:30 each evening. As always, all children in the area are invited to attend. More details should be available later. The older youth and their entourage returned from Falls Creek a week ago, which was to have been the featured event
in last week’s news. The condensed version is that they had a great time, learned much, heard some great preaching, and won the banner contest. T he special music at this week’s service was titled “Where the Soul of Man Never Dies.” Ted and Wyatt Deaton along with James and Jake Hammonds did a nice job of bringing us a spiritual message in a toe-tapping Nashville Bluegrass style. Rev. Karch’s message was titled, “Laborers are Few,” and was taken from Matthew 9:3538; Luke 5:1-11; and Luke 9:23-26. The Moore tornado emer-
gency, a heart attack, and getting the hay in before it rains are all examples of urgent situations. A world of people in need of knowing Christ is an even more urgent situation, and Jesus expects us to get on with the job. People are dying and going to hell, and more laborers are needed to warn the multitudes who need to know about Jesus. In the book of Luke, Peter recognizes that Jesus is no ordinary man. In fact Peter doesn’t feel he deserves to be in the same place as Jesus. However, Jesus tells him not to be afraid, and that he will make him and his fellow fishermen
fishers of men. The men are so impressed by this man and his teaching that they leave their work and their homes immediately to go with Him. Jesus later tells his disciples that any worldly thing that gets in the way of their walking in obedience with Him is useless. The message to us is that every day we are to take up our cross (self-denial) and live in obedience to Him. It takes determination, and it may be out of our comfort zone, but a multitude of people need to know about Jesus, and we are all He’s got. After all, Christianity is not just a Sunday job—it’s a 7 day a week job.

We had several people on vacation this Sunday. It’s always good to take a break from the daily grind. Hopefully they will be back next Sunday. We miss them when they are gone. God is good. The gardens and grass are growing each day . Praying that the temperature will stay around 90. Bro. Larry and Murphy sang our special for the day, “I’m Going Home, Where I Belong.” The sermon was taken from Galatians 3:23 and 4:7 and entitled “Are You a Child of God?” The child of God has been set free. We were at one time enslaved by sin. The Bible claims that all have sinned. We sinned because we were separated from God. Because of our sin, we were lost and helpless. Paul claims that those who come to “faith” have been freed. The child of God is learning to live by a new standard. We belong to Christ. Our lives are not our own. We are learning to live for something greater than ourselves. We are learning to live the life of faith. Abraham exhibited his faith by following God toward an uncertain goal. As Christians, we too follow in the pathway of faith. It may seem no easier for us than it was Abraham. Fortunately for us we have something he didn’t: a heritage of faith. The history of the church is written in the lives of believers. We invite you to join us for church next Sunday.
