Easter will be celebrated in

ginning with a sunrise service of
the Christian Endeavor of the
Evangelical church in Big Eddy
park, and a mass at the Catholic
church at 6:30.
The Christian church will pre­
sent an Easter program during
the Bible school hour. A number
of recitations and songs will be
given by members of the school,
who have been preparing For sev­
eral weeks for the occasion. A
record breaking attendance of
500 is the goal aimed tor, says
F. Claude Stephens, the minister.
Special Easter sermons will be
preached at the Evangelical and
Christian churches by the respec­
tive pastors, D. R. Kauffman and
F. Claude Stephens. Mr. Kauff­
man’s theme will be “The Event
that Changed the World," and
Mr. Stephens’ “The Argument
of the Empty Tomb.’’
The evening service at the
Evangelical church will feature

given by members of the Chris­
tian Endeavor under the direction
of Mrs. Enoch Dumas. Mary
Kauffman represents Abagail, a
woman embittered by her hus­
band’s death, contrasting with a
romantic younger sister played
Zonweiss Douglass. Bill Lumm
takes the leading man’s role, and
Leon Brock characterizes a Phar­
isee. Colleen Fogel is the child'
around whom the action of the
play revolves, and Sara McGee is
property manager.
Also on the program will be
Easter selections delivered by
members of the Sunday school.
The evening service at the
Christian church will be charact­
erized by a song service and the
sermon, “My Gift.”
