Intricate plastering work, both
of the auditorium walls and of the

about done, and the auditoriums
south and , east walls are com
pleted. Work of molding . the arches
over the auditorium has been com
pleted. And the organ chamber
is nearly enclosed.
Iron railing has been placed
on the north stairway that leads
to the balconies. The railings will
all be placed, it is thought, by the

guard against early overwork and
against exercises which' merely:
strengthen, without helping leg
spring. High kicking is very
good ; deep knee bending 'exer
cises, and others of this type, are
n't of much use to ady track ath

everything physique-of a weight
man, spring of a jumper, speed of
a sprinter and a special coordina

my fellows to keep in mind dur

training as well as during the
month of outdoor work that fol
lows, and I'd like to tell' it to ev
ery traek man in the country. It's
simply this: "Ddn't overstrain.
Remember that you're aiming to
build, up not prodigious, strength,
but facile speed. And Always keep
n mild that it's a lot easier (an'i
a lot more harmful) to overdo
than to under-work."

II. The Great Commandment
in the Iaw 34-40.
1. The First Commandment
"Thou shalt love the Lord thy
God with all thy heart, with all
thy soul and with all thy mind."
This means that supreme and un
divided love to God Is the first
and great commandment. Man's
supreme obligation is to God. It
is wrong to evaluate man's char
acter on the basis of his morality
as expressed In his relation to his
fellowman. Real righteousness'!
doing the right thing with God.
The greater immorality of which
a man can be guilty is his failure
to respond to the demands of God.
The one who does not supremely

MARQUISE III PUCE
Wooden Frame Is Finished
on High and Ferry
i Wooden frame of the marquise
around the building on the north
west corner of High 'and Ferry
streets has been completed. The
marquise extends around the en
tire building the second floor of
which is occupied by the Salem
Iron chains are used to hold
the marquise, in place. , These
have all been placed. The tin
work will be started this. week.
About two more weeks will he re
quired before the marquise is fin
ished. and with undivided affection love
God is the greatest sinner.
2. The Second Commandment
The second commandment is
like unto the first in that it cen
ters in love. It is not said that it
was equal unto the first; that
would not be true. A man may
love himself, but not supremely.
One's love for his neighbor may
be either too much or too little.
The measure set is love for itself.
We should love God better than
ourselves. He is worthy of all our,
affeoons, and demands all. Love
is not mere emotion, but a su
preme desire for the welfare of
another and a willingness to do
everything possible to secure that
end. The command to love our
neighbor is involved in the com
mand to love God. To pretend to
love God is folly if we do not love
our neighbor. To attempt to es
tablish a brotherhood among men
without the recognition of the
fatherhood of God is of God by
faith In Jesus Christ. It is true
that in the sense of being God's
creatures, all men are God's
children, but in the New Test
ment sense, men are only God's
children as they are in Christ.
The only way to bring in the bro
therhood of man is to preach Je
sus Christ to the race and secure
acceptance of Him. We thus be
come brothers in the real sense of
the term, when we have God as
our Father. AH obligations rest
ing upon man is embraced in these
two commandments. Those who
conform their lives to them are
God's children and are the very

ities agree that the -average ex

So economy is one of the main
motives in the practice of ''over
coating' an old "frame house with
stucco. If the structure is in good
condition, this can be done Inex
pensively. All.that is'peeded ls to
see that the siding is nailed down
tight, then nail on a reinforcing
fabric, and finally apply the three
coats of - stucco.- The first t two
parts of the job can be done by the
householder himself,'; reducing the
labor-cost to one single item, the
plasterer's bill. , " ' :.'
. Next to econmoy, the greatest
advantage, of, the t overcoating , is
that it greatly enhances the value
of the home; by raising it from
