Dr. r. V. Poling-, pastor of the Pil
grim Congregational Church anj one of
the beat-k-nown and most prominent
Congregational ministers In the state,
yesterday announced to his congrega
tion that he has tendered his resigna
tion from the pulpit in which he has
been serving for the past year and a
halt the resignation to take effect
His resignation, he announced, was
due to no conditions that had arisen in
the church but because of the opening
of a new field of service for him in the
Tiring Squadron of America."
The church is loath to accept the
resignation and a preference is ex
pressed to grant Dr. Poling a leave or
absence during his service on the
"Squadron" and to secure a temporary
supply while he must be away. Dr.
Poling, however, expressed his prefer
ence that the church secure another
pastor as soon as conveniently possible.

Dr. Poling Is a thorough musician and
It is the solo engagement with the team
numbered one in the "Squadron" that

HINT IS GTVEV VACATIONERS
Leave More Than Money" in
Country, Says Pastor.
Visits of city dwellers to rural va
cation haunts are not uplifting al
ways to the morals and manners of
the community to which they go, was
the opinion expressed by the Rev.
James Diamond Corby, of the Univer
salis! Church, in his sermon yester
day on "An Unusual and Pleasant Va
cation." Dr. Corby preached on the
need of "taking a good example with
you on your vacation."
"We carry with us far more than
the grip or trunk contains." he said.
"We carry an atmosphere. We set an
example for those we meet We pay
our dollars for our board and room,
but grumble If the manners and morals
of the host do not suit. We expect of
them courtesy, honesty, neatness. What
do our country hosts expect of us?
What do we give them? Are they alto
gether pleased with the way we in
vade their quiet homes, upset the hab
its of their lives and sow ideas, prac
tices and fashions which they may
well view with alarm. If not with in
dignation? "Rural families cultivate economies
and frugal habits, yet the city chil
dren who go among them scorn sim
ple pleasures, and must have a pocket
ful of money and spend more in a
week than the children of rural fam
ilies do in a year. While the country
folks have children and scrimp they
note the show and parade of folks
whose watchward is. "Never mind the
expense.' A single holiday is a great
treat to them, but many of their city
visitors serve pleasure and chase en
joyment all the year.
"Country folks who are teaching
their young people to put a premium
on sobriety, decorum and decency
often are shocked by the carousing and
lack of decorum they witness.
"Many who take city boarders te'.l
me their boys learn bad habits, hear
coarse stories, their girls have the bad
example of loud, brazen ways of dress
and language. The misuse of Sunday
and the constant visiting on that day
serves to break down the higher
standards and harm life."

The Rev. Perry Joseph Green dis
cussed last night at the New Thought
meeting the claims ot Dr. Littlefield
that he has brought about the phe

experiments. "Dr. i,lttlefield's discov
ery is a verification of the New

"Dr. Littlefield did not say that ho
had created life In his laboratory, but
that he had been able to bring about,
by certain processes of evaporation, a
certain degree of temperature, with
moisture and a combination of certain
chemicals, a voluntary and organic ex

at his office in Seattle and to see with
their own eyes what he declares is his

the verification of the New Thought
teachings, namely, that everything is
alive. Every atom of substance, no
matter what it is, contains life and
intelligence and this life is the omni

Declares Elder St. John.
The end of the present world follow
ing the Battle of Armageddon, with
Jesus Christ as a possible participant,

righteous only, is predicted by local
Seventh Day Adventists, who base their
prophecy on the present signs of a
coming general European war. Bibli
cal passages are Interpreted by them
to indicate that these phenomena are
"The Bible prophesies the movement
of a great army from the north and
the annihilation by it of the Kingdom
of the South," said Elder Milton H. St.
John, pastor of the Central Portland
Seventh Day Adventist Church, yester
day. "By this we understand that Rus
sia, drawn Into the conflict as It is
likely to be, will swoop down upon
Constantinople, elsewhere known in
the Bible as the Kingdom of the South,
and drive the Turks from Europe into
the Holy Land.
"Then will follow the Battle of Ar
mageddon, consisting of a series of
conflicts around Jerusalem. If Christ
does not come to earth during the bat
tle he will descend soon after Its con
clusion. When he returns to heaven,
the Bible says, he will take all of the
righteous dead with him. These right
eous people, who died during the great
final battle between all nations, accord
ing to the Bible, will live in heavon
with Christ for 1000 years.
"Meanwhile, satan will be bound on
earth, which then will be Inhabited by
tho wicked. At the conclusion of the
1000 years Christ will return to earth
with all the righteous people and will
settle with them in the New Jerusalem.
"Deceiving the people of the earth.
Satan, unbound again, will lead them
in attack against the New Jerusalem,
with the promise that they will con
quer the city. As they are marching
to the battle, a great fire will come
down from heaven and devour them,
at the same time ridding the earth of
nil diseases and disease germs. A new
earth, inhabited with righteous people,
then will be born.
"From the prophesies of the Bible we
cannot fix the date, but CDnditions in
Europe now indicate that the time is
ripe. We predict that the final battle
of the nations will come soon, as a re
sult of the present complications in
Europe. America, because ot her Inti
mate commercial connections with Eu

prophesies of the Bible seem to con

Action upon the resignation of the
Rev W. B. HInson from the White
Temple probably will be taken by the
deacons of the church at a meeting
Thursday. None of the members of
that body, however, would make any
statement yesterday as to what action
probably would be taken.
In case the resignation Is accepted
the church law requiring three months'
notice undoubtedly will result in a
continuance of his occupancy of the
nmlntt for several weeks after his re
turn from his vacation at Sunset
Beach, where he will go this weeK.
Dr Hinson made no positive an
nouncement as to having filed his
resignation with the trustees in enner
of his sermons last night. The news
of the fact that the resignation wa
in the hands of that body pending
action by the deacons and the tneme
announced for his evening sermon.
"Finally, Brethren, Farewell," aroused
wldesDread interest, sufficient to
bring out congregations that filled the
"Thi3 13 not my farewell sermon.'
said Dr. Hinson. in closing his address
In the evening. "I go awuy for a time
to rest and. so far as I know, i snan
preach here In this pulpit the first
Simdav In September. I do not know
what the future may bring forth or
whither the winding road may lead
me in the future.
Dr. Hinson preached his sermon from
the farewell words of Paul in the
epistle to the Corinthians, and sharply
characterized the Church of Corinth as
the" most "materialistic ana carnal
phurch in its time."
"Paul said to them that he could
not Drecch to them the real truth that
was within them because they were
"There were also in the Church of
Corinth ecclesiastical anarchists aa
there are in churchea even or today, ana
i wish that the fate of every ecclesias
tical anarchist who makes bombs
against others might be the Bame as
the fate of those anarchists that made
the bomb to blow up Rockefeller; that
they might be blown to inch pieces Dy
their own bombs.
"I know I am skating on thin ice,"
he said at one point in his character
ization of the Church of Corinth, "and
I must skate carefully."
A portion of his words he applied
frankly and directly to the congrega
tion before him, saying: "Hear me,
now, for I am talking about you."
Dr. J. Q. A. Henry will occupy the
pulpit of the White Temple next Sun
day and until the return of Dr. Hinson
from his vacation. Dr. Hinson will
not leave for the beach until later in
the present week.
