III I A "map of misery" for Charles Town has been suggested by the Charles Town Chapter of ,the Am- erican. Temperance Society. "This map", said J. Marshall Porter, local Temperance secre- tary, "would show the culturally destructive impact on Charles Town made 'by the consumption of alcoholic beverages. It would open eyes to the unavoidable fact :that alcoholism is a major ,public heal th problem in Charles Town even as it is throughout the United States." Mr. Porter said his organizat- ion"s proposal for such a map in Charles Town .is based on a public map prepared for the city of Long Beach, Calif. and described in the current issue of ,Listen, an inter- national journal aimed at the pre vention of alcoholism and narco- tics addiction which is sponsored locally by the Charles Town chap- ter of the American Temperance Society. Evergreen 4-11 Club Celebrates Birthday The members of the Evergreen 4-H club celebrated the clubs bir- thday at the monthly meeting on March 2.

It was decided to give Mrs. My- ers, the county leader w.ho also celebrates her ,birthday in March a ceramic 'pit.her made by Mrs. Boyd. Since the offices of Presiden~ and Vice-president had been va- cated an election was held and Norman Kay Whetzel was chosen president and Paxton Marshall vice-president. Jimmy Klnkead was elected to fill ,the game leader ~ost vacated when Norma Kay Whetzel accepted the presidency It was decided that Paxton Mar- shall should continue to serve as reporter as well as vice-president.

Revival Services To THm COURT tries the prisoner, or so it is intended. Sometimes Open Sunday At Calvary his story reverses the court's ver- dict. In such cases, those who look back at the trial can see that the Assembly Of God Church prisoner was really trying the The Reverend A. F. Stine, pas- tor, announced this week that a series of revival services will begin at the new Assembly of God Chur ch being erected near the Circle in Ranson on Fairfax Boulevard, Sunday evening, March 15 at 7:30. The services will be held in the basement of the .new church build ing since the church audi~orium is still under construction. The' Rev. Milton Seacord of Hamilton, Va., well known in Christian circles, will be ~he evan- gelist. Mr. Hamilton is a consecra ted servant of God and he will be bringing inspiring messages night |y. The Rev. Mr. Seine invites the public to attend these special wor Ghip services and to receive a :bless Ing from God nightly. There will be special music and 1 t court. That is to say, in the eyes of posterity and (we may well be- lieve) often of God himself, every one con- nected with the trial will be judged by his at- titude to the pris- oner; not the other way around. Joan of Arc, for example, had Dr. Foreman a spectacular trial. She was con- demned and cruelly execubed, ap- parently to every one's approval. But today she is called a Saint. Students of her life and times feel that if any one in that grim court- room where her death was .decreed deserved to die, it was not she, but some who betraye~ her, xome who Judged her. The Judge's Question Jesus' trial before Pilate is the supreme example of such an up- side-down trial. If any one had asked the governor that evening how he thought history would rank him and his young prisoner of that morning, he would have sm!led his grim Roman smile and perhaps said, "Hmph! History will not be interested. But if history wants to know, it's on the record. I had the man executed. That settles it, doesn't it?" Pilate could not have known that his own~ sole claim to fame would be the fact that every seven days, all over the world, in hundreds of languages, men 'and women would repeat the words' al- most like a curse... "and in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord, who .. suffered under Pontius Pilate." In the course of that wicked farce of a trial, Pilate asked a question which has more echoes than he guessed: "Then what shal! I do with Jesus?" That is ~the question by which the participant~ in that trial were judged; It rathe question that jtidges us today. What will you do with Jesus ? The Mob's Answer Pilate asked the wrong peOple what to do with Jesus. He was the judge, he had the responsibility. He never would have thought of asking a Jewish mob for advice on statesrrmnship or anything else. Yet he goes through the bitter farce of asking a mob, a brainless bloodthirsty mob, what to do with this innocent prisoner. The crowd thought they were passing sen- tence; but they were only passing sentence on themselves. The voice of the people is not the verdict of history, it is not the voice of truth nor the voice of God. Sometimes it is; but not there and then, not in Jerusalem. Mobs have voices, they have wills, they may have weap- ons; the one thing they do not have is brains, judgment, wisdom. The verdict of history, verdict of God, is seldom in favor of the mob. The Fact-Finders Of course, even a mob's voice has some brains behind it. In this case it was that dignified combination of chief priests and elders and scribes. These were Pilate's fact- finders. Pilate was a typical Roman; he cared less than nothing for local customs, superstitions, notions. He did not pretend to un- derstand why this Jesus should be the object of sc~ much hate. When Pilate said, "~rhat evil has he done?" it is ver~ possible that he was not "stalling for time" but really was puzzled to lmow. The scribes and the elders and the chief priests were his fact-finders, his research team when cases came up out of their c0urts--and such occasions were rare. If some in- quiring reporter ~ms asked some of those chief priests, the after- noon vf Good Friday, what part they had in the trial, they would perhaps have said with pride, "We were there/We influenced the re- sult. We were consulted. We gave the advice that changed the gov- ernor's mind. That Jesus might have been at large this minute, if it had not been for us." But is was murder all the tame. For these fact-finders had nO facts. All they had was prejudice, emo- tion, name-calling. They influenced the result; but not with truth. Can we say we axe never guilty of thelr crime ?

ALL I=OR THE CHURCH The Church is the greatest Factor on earth for the building of character and good citizenship. It is a storehouse oF spiritual values. Without a strong Church, neither democracy nor civilization can survive. There are four sound reasons why every person should attend services regularly and support the Church. They are: (I) For his own sake. (2) For his children's sake. (3) For the sake of his community and nation. (4) For the sake of the Church itself, which needs his moral and material support. Plan to go to church regularly and read your Bible daily.
