Oregon Leads Way In
Solving Church Problem
Oregon appears to be lending the way
in solving a few of the many church
problems. Salem claims the first church
in tho state to itse moving pictures as
a means of interesting people in the ev
ening services. Beginning Sunday,
February 0, the First Congregational
church of this city, began a series of
Sundny evening entertainments with
moving pictures of standard grade and
with the Fathc company service. The
first services brought but an attend
ance of 700, completely filling the au
ditorium, balcony and Sunday school
room. The pictures shown were' Fathe's
"Joseph in Bondage."
And now comes Scio, a town of 500 in
Linn county, Oregon, with four sep
arate church congregations, Methodist,
Christian, Presbyterian and Baptist.
These are to be merged into one church,
to be known as tnc ' Federated
The confession of faith is Jimple,
one that could he subscribed to by nny
Christian. Sectnrian lines were cast
aside, as the members of the new church
agreed that all they needed was the
fundamentals of the Christum religion.
The 70 members of the four churches
were glad to join hands, according to a
report received from Scio, and unite in
one strong church of brotherhood.
Tho "Federated Chlurch" is made up
as follows: Methodist, 5; Presbyterians,

A pastor from a consolidated church
in Oklahoma, the Rev. II. li. Her, was
called to fill the position of pastor, at
a salary of $M00.
And thus Oregon is solving the prob

evenings, and how to secure regular
services in the small towns where no
congregation is strong enough to sup
port a regular pastor.
