CHURCH H A S P O W E R TO GIVE P U R P O S E IN L I F E The first t h i n g which needs to be said is t h a t the Christian Church is continually p r o p a g a t i n g itself and providing f o r its continuance by giving youth a p u r p o s e in life, by t u r n i n g young people around in their living and s t a r t i n g them on Christ's road. The secret of the success of Hitlerism and Fascism has been its ability to inspire young people and to load them to a c t i o n . The Christian ( hurch. too. has this power, if we but realize it. I he experience of a young friend — a lad in his teens — b e a r s this out. Reared in one of the finest Christian homes I know, he s t a n d s of . .f \ */-. as one of the finest of America's youth. His p a r e n t s had c a r e f u l l y avoided forcing him into a Christian decision, although they had wisely led him in his thinking. Some y e a r s ago the f a m i l y stood in W e s t m i n s t e r Cathedral and the boy read those f a m o u s words of Livingstone, "All I can s a y in my soLitydQ us.piay heaven's .rich bjeasing come down on everyone . . . who will help to heal the open sore of the world." The next day as f a t h e r and son were w a l k i n g the s t r e e t s of London, the lad said. "Dad, I'd like to do s o m e t h i n g . You know, there are still a lot of open sores in the world today, and I w a n t to help heal them. I don't know where God will lead me, into medicine, law, the m i n i s t r y , or s o m e t h i n g else, but I do know that I want to make my life count for Christ." Needless to s a y . the lad is still making his life "count f o r Christ."

Two weeks ago today the Hope college trackmen descended heavily upon the Michigan State Field House at East Lansing where they wrested honors from their opponents in all events. Starting the season off with unknown potentialities, the Hopemen dazzled the circuit with their performance in the Indoor Meet. In the opening events, the edge was not impressive, but the Hope wingfoots always find a warm-up period necessary, after which they begin to lead the field in an easy manner. Running the distances like gazelles and the dashes like streamliners, they marched from one event to the next, garnering points in all.
