CHEIMIAN When you consider a Bible School there are several element which go to make it effective. We have meno tioned lately some of what might be called the special features and we have mentioned the faithful corps of teachers. Another feature is the re- gularly attending pt-pil. The occa- sional attendant may contribute some effect when he is there but the regu- lar attendant is the one who furnish- es voitively necessary element in the Bible School. We are for the special features, for the tea- chers and officers, and we are happy to have such a fine group of regular attendants. Readers, if you are not one of these regular attendanta, be- come one of ,them. The bible school will make a real and valuable exratri- button to your lif The morning service lut Sunday was another enjoyable one, We en- IoYed the wholesome attendae which was sou as good u usual and the special number given us by the combined adult and young ple's choirs.

Nevertheless we heard them .nd were glad. Quite a large group of us met at the church and "tuned in". Counting everything, we feel that last Sunday at the Christian Church was a mighty fine day, qT.
