Individual Aid Held Key to
STIRRING APPEAL IS MADE
Dr. H. 51. Iinlten, at White Tem
ple, Asserts Great Buildings Do
JTot Always Accomplish Most.
A stirring appeal for personal
evangelism as the keynote of reli
gious activity In the modern church
was made to a large audience at
White Temple yesterday morning: by
Dr. H. H. Hulten, ex-pastor of the
First Baptist church of Oklahoma
City, -who will fill the pulpit of White
Temple this month, with the possibil
ity of becoming permanent leader of
"The ministry Is full of men -who
believe they must have a great
church building, huge crowds, and
great sermons to accomplish good."
said Dr. Hulten. "These factors do
not always guarantee the most good
In Christian work. The larger the
congregation, the smaller is the
chance to reach the Individual.
Personal Work Advocated.
"It takes far more courage, ability
and Inspiration to speak the right
message to a single sinner than to
propound theories and theology from
behind a barricaded pulpit. Christ's
own creed is followed when the word
of God Is brought home In lasting
manner to the Individual through
the evangelistic endeavor of another,
"Many ministers preach sermons
52 Sundays In the year, and never
reach anyone. They are like some
hunters, who close their eyes and
blaze away with both barrels of a
shotgun Into a large covey of quail
with the hope that the mass of shots
will bring down something.
"I am not sure that I know what
a so-called great sermon really Is.
The value of a sermon is the effect
It has on those who hear It. If the
individual Is not touched. and
strengthened, all the flights of ora
tory and learning are of no avail.
Home la Place to Start
"Personal evangelism should begin
in the home. If you can't evangelize
your own brother, sister or thildren,
you can't evangelize the brother, sis
ter or children of anybody else.
"Evangelism, the effort to bring
others to Christ, is the keynote of
present religious activity. Many a
big man Is powerless to carry on the
work of God because, inpite of out
standing ability and talent and
scholarly attainments, he is unclean.
On the other hand, I have seen men
who could scarcely speak six gram
matical sentences in succession who
were splendid evangelists because
they were clean.
Christiana Are Classified.
"The sinner or individual outside
the fold sees God through the evan
gelist. I wonder what the world
thinks when it sees Christ through
"There are three classes of Chris
tians In our church today. The first
class Is a small, intense group of
warm-hearted, fervent Christians
who think the church needs an en
tirely new organization. The second
class is larger, and consists of those
who oppose a new organization, but
who believe we" should have more
consistency, more prayer and more
piety. The third group is indifferent,
and unfortunately is the largest class
in numbers. Personally, I am a mem
ber of the second class and have
strong Interest in the third.
"We must stir this third class so
profoundly that the church will be
a soul-saving institution rather than
an ecclesiastical clubhouse."
XE1V EDIFICE DEDICATED
First Church of Xazarene Holds
The new church building of the
First Church of the Nazarene, Twelfth
and Main streets, was dedicated for
mally at ceremonies yesterday after
noon lead by Rev. G. S. Hunt, district
superintendent of the church. A large
congregation attended the dedication
of the new edifice, which has a seat
ing capacity of 550.
"The world is not greatly Indebted
to the man who has simply followed
the beaten track," said the speaker.
"We say all hall' to the man who
with the sublime faith has ventured
out where others have never gone
forth. We do honor to Columbus, who
directed his vessels out Into n un
charted sea. and despite the threaten
lngs of his mutinous crew, pushed
on until he sighted the new con
tinent. "Leaders of this church, with Rev."
Alpin M. Bowes at their head, have
shown the same spirit in establish
ing this new home for our religion."
The speaker took as the subject of
his sermon "The Glory of the Latter
House." He referred to the fact that
the new tabernacle does not equal
in architectural beauty the houses
hitherto occupied by the congrega
tion, yet the expectation and prayer
of the church were that this new
home may surpass the former In spir
itual results, and displays of the di
"We pray that this house, un
adorned and unornamented, may be
the place where the Architect of the
Skies shall adorn and garland many
a soul with robes of spotless white."

TWO DEAD OF DIPHTHERIA
CHIDDREX SUCCUMB SHORTLY

City Health Officer Says Early
Treatment of Disease Must
City Health Officer Parrlsh, who
had believed the numerous cases of
diphtheria recently reported were on
the decrease and that recurrence of
the disease In any considerable num
bers was unlikely, was advised yes
terday of two deaths In a single day
of young children from diphtheria.
One case was that of little Robert
Helser, 1635 Willamette boulevard,
who died shortly after medical as
sistance had been summoned. Dr. F.
S. S. Schultz of St. John's respond
ing to the call. Earlier medical at
tention would, it was said, probably
have saved the lad's life. '
The other death was that of Philip
B. Kaufman, aged 2Vi years, son of
Mr. and Mrs.- H. R. Kaufman, 695
Patton boulevard. The child died
while being taken to the hospital in
"The wave of diphtheria cases is
receding," said Dr. Parrlsh yester
day, "but it is regrettable indeed
that the disease has taken two more
lives. All parents should be urged
again to take quick action and have
medical advice promptly If diph
theria is suspected or any condition
exists that might prove to be this
"Early use? of anti-toxin in these
cases means recovery in almost every
instance, and none should take
chances by delaying this great aid
to treatment. Delays are doubly
dangerous in dealing with this dis
ease, and they should not be tolerated
In any instance.".
