Rose City Park Church Does
Away With Night Service.
Dr. Yonngson Plans Even Sons Kach
Sunday at 4:HO That Families Mar
Remain at Home In Evenlns.
ANEW schedule is in force in the
Rose City Park Methodist Church.
Instead of a night service that takes
the family away from home on Sunday
nights. Dr. Youngson has planned to
hold evensong at 4:30 o'clock. Of this
innovation he says: ""The district has
many young married people with little
children. Under the new arrangement
they can take an afternoon walk, come
in to service and then get home in time
for an early supper and an evening
round their own fireside. The home
life needs cultivation, and I think our
new plan will be. a great thing for the
A choral choir of 30 girls will sing
at the services.
Another new feature win be the
study of hymns and their authors. A
surprise reward will be given to those
who learn 30 hymns in as many weeks.
In speaking of the work of the
Church. Dr. William Wallace Young
son, the pastor, said:
Ts It Important that every family should
have a church home of Us own? If the body,
is everything and the soul nothing. It makes
no difference whether one goes to church or
not. But if there is a higher nature, and If
that nature requires food and care, comfort
and useful exercise, probably we" will all
agree that each family imperatively requires
a place where these thins may be sought
Churches are not less - necessary to the
moral welfare and to the safety of the city
than are manufactories and schools to its
physical and intellectual life. No person
ot good character and of sound Judgment
would care or dare to live where the insti
tutions of religion are pot found.
Modern civilization In Us best forms Is
Christian and ft could no more be main
tained without the church than could knowl
edge be preserved without libraries and
classrooms, or business without offices and
money. We must have the Church. If piety,
virtue and good will are to persist, and to
bless the world with golden deds.
If the church is to live and to do good,
this must be made possible by human effort,
and the obligation rests upon all alike. It
is Just as much the business man's duty as
It Is the preacher's to build up the church.
The church woman who labors in Christian
undertakings has a right to -the assistance
of the woman who puts all lier time Into
society, or even into the more valuable of
fices of the home.
The needs of men and women are served
by the church in a hundred ways, and many
of the deepest needs of human nature could
not be supplied In any other way. The church
is a creator of values. Krlng a saloon Into
a town or ward, and property goes down.
Build a church, and the financial desirabil
ity or the neighborhood is bettered.
The church pays, even when considered as
a money proposition. It Pays still greatel
dividends in citizenship. The church makes
manliness and ennobles womanhood: It cul
tures boys and girls into strength and
beauty of character . and conduct; It even
represses vice: if there were less churches
more policemen would be required.

Piedmont Community Club
Organisation In Effected at Presby
terian Church Wide Membership
Is Sought Next Meeting Tuesday.
A MEETING was called in the Pied

evening of October 12 .to consider the
advisability of forming a permanent
organization of the men of the com

by the 60 men who responded to the
call, and an organization committee
was appointed, with instructions to
present a constitution and bylaws the
first Tuesday evening in November.

ed, a permanent organization called
the Piedmont Community Club, was ef
fected, and the following officers were
elected: President, F. B. Layman;

the constitution, are to "promote the

its members and or the communities in
which they live." It hopes to include
in its membership all residents of Pied

munities who are in sympathy with
these objects and appreciate the value
of fellowship with other "forward
Although the meetings so far have
been held in the Piedmont Presbyterian
Church, and although the movement
was initiated by Rev. A. L. Hutchison,
minister of that church, the Piedmont
Community Club is not primarily a
church organization. Its membership
includes men of many different
churches and men of no church. It
aims at community welfare and wel
comes to membership all men having
the community's welfare at heart.

these two meetings by the women of
