said. "Purity is power. Jesus nev
er taught that power was a re
quirement from heaven, but He
did teach that purity was neces
sary before the soul could meet
God in peace."
The Rev. J. G. Minton. Alliance
pastor, preaching upon "The Prod
igal Son." pointed out that the
first 6tep in the wrong direction
was as the young man turned his
back on his good home, saying
that when one has turned from
God and righteousness, the devil
will do his best to drive him into
the far country of sin.
"There was a turning point in
the life of this young man. The
bible tells us that he came to him
self and if he came to himself this
would indicate that he must have
been beside himself when he was
in the far country." Mr. Minton
said that if young people today
could only come to themselves
they, too, would say "I will arise
and go to my Father."
The preacher pictured further
how the father welcomed the son
home, forgave him freely, loved
him tenderly and that there was
feasting and merrymaking In that
home. He stated that this is the
way our heavenly Father wel
comes prodigal sons and daugh
ters who will return and repent.

The census roll for Marion
county has been completed and
shows 16.757 children of school
age. or between four and 20. resid
ing In the county, reports Couny
School Superintendent Mary J..
The school census this year is
149 less than a year ago, for which
Mrs. Fulkerson could assign no
reason, except that some of the
logging camps and sawmills In th
county have closed down, thereby
taking away some school children.
To date, high school tuition pu
pils those who have no high
school in their own district and
attend In others have cost Mar
ion county $66,046.96, Mrs. Ful
kerson said and pointed out that
these bills would probably be
higher next year owing to the fact
that the Aumsville, Stayton and
Turner districts had added busses
this year. Other counties paid in
$12,284.01 for pupils attending
school in this county.
Aside from the Salem high
school, which drew nearly half or
$30,473,168 tuition fund, Wood
ourn received tne hignest sum,
$11,818.56. Silverton received $9,-
