JTimes.News Photo. @@@@@@@@@@@@ + THE NEXT STEP fl It is said that history moves ' in a cycle like this: "From + bondage to spiritual faith, + from spiritual faith to cour. age, from courage to free- dora, from freedom to a measure of physical abun- dance, from abundance to + selfishness, from selfishness to complacency, from corn- placency to apathy, from apathy to fear, from fear .. to dependency, from dependency back again to bond- age." If this be so--it is easy to see where we are in this course of events, and the sight of it is frighten- ing. BUT do we need to make the next step? Do we -ll- have to go all the way down into greater dependency n and bondage? God forbid! Surely at anytime and at any place it "s possible, by the grace of God, to step out of that cycle into the higher regions of spiritual faith, if by that faith is meant the Christian faith, the =u= faith, of and in the Bible, the faith in the Bible's _.rL Christ, who is Author of our eternal salvation and by . =tr  that token Author and Source of all true human in- -U- dividuality, dignity, and freedom. _.[L We need a spiritual awakening: "Awake thou that $1eepest and arise from the dead, and Christ will i give thee light" LUTHERAN CHURCH ML Pulaski Chestnut New Holland MEN'S BOOTS AND ZIPPERS TIES AND BOOT STYLES o.P1y-Insulcrtednot absorb moisture - SeaLs in th -.SeaLS out cold - Steel Shank - Felt mid.sole hion insole. $16.95 - $18.95- $19.95 t-buckle Boot - $6.50 S-buckle Boot - $8.95 'huckle Red Sole Boot $5.95 MANY STYLES STRETCH RUBBERS DOUD'S ' DOUBLE R URN from these REA loans Americans are getting a better-living bonus--plus their money back--from Rural Electrification Admir, istrotlon loans. tn the first place, Rural Electric Systems already have repaid nearly $11/2-billion in principal and interest on their $3V2-billion in REA loans. And their repayment record is 99.998% perfect-one of the finest in the history of banking. Nearly 1000 Rural Electric Systems- mostly cooperatives- have invested these funds in l1-million miles of line and other facilities. Today nearly 17 million rural Americans, who found no other practical way to obtain electricity, depend on these rural systems for light and power.
