SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON ADVOCATE 8--A THI RSI)AY, MARCIt 26, 1:159 i v '. i i Town Seventh-Day Adventist Churches Urged Into Civil Defensq Members of the Charles Town Seventh-day Church have been called on to make some contribut- ions to civil defense and e.~pecially to take first aid training. The advice was given in Atlan- ic City, New Jersey, on Tuesday at the quadrennial convention of the Columbia Union Conference of Adventists by its director of wel fare services, Howard K. Halladay. Atending the four-day convention from this city is Glenn E. Smith, Pastor of the local church. The local minister, one of more Chart 600 delegates to the parley. heard the church official urge that local churches take "immediate steps toward accelerating civil de- fense preparations and welfare activities." "If a national or local emer- gency should arise, we then, as a church, will be prepared to save our own lives and the lives of others", Ha~laday told the conven: ion. "It is our duty to help save lives-the physical as well as the spiritual man." Resolutions passed Tuesday by the qi~adrennial business ,meeting reaffirmed the church's tradition- al stand in opposition to the use of public tax funds to support op- erations of any parochial school and against Sunday closing legis- lation. Thomas R. Gardner, Secretary treasurer of the conference, report ed to delegates that Adventists in the seven-state area represented by his conference contributed $24, 691,116.20 tithes and mission off- erings in the past quadrennial per iod, a per capita of $178.51 one of the highest per capitas of any Ad- ventist unit. Traditionally Adven- tists lead Protestants in per capita giving to the church. A two-day ministerial institute starts today. Pastor Smith is ex- pected to give a report of the con vention to the local congregation on Saturciay morning. Pastor Smith i~ expected to re- port that Adventists in Ohio, Pa., Md., Deleware, New Jersey, Vs., W. Vs. and Washington, D. C. gave more than 34 million dollars for tl~,e work of the church over the pa~t four years, thereby set- Ling one of the higi~e.% records of per capita giving of any religious body. Adventists follow the-prac- tice of tithing, setting aside one- tenth of their income for the chur ch. F lse Teeth Now Back With Owner After Brief Trip To Brunswick, Md. Jolm Lewis, Charles Town, custodian of ~he Chaxles Town Postoffice was in :difficulty for several days recently when one set of his faL~ teeth came up missing. Lewis notified the boys in the Postofflce that :he had lost them and he thought they were among some mail bags that he was readying them for shipment. An all-potnk~ alarm went out along the lines of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroa~l asking that a lookout" be kept for one set of f&lse teeth. The boys in the I~unswick, Md. postoflice got tht word and several days later ~y found the imissing teeth in g mail bag which had come from the Charles Town Postof- ~e, They returned them to Poltma~ster C. Manning Smith and now :John fully enjoys eat- |I141~ once again. /t seems as though John had his teeth in his shirt pocket and they fell into the mail bags as he was putting a roll of empty bags in it. The moral of the story: Don't carry your false teeth in your shirt pocket, but keep them in your mouth where they belong. County's FROM PAGE 1 Already this company has an- swered 73 fire alarms this year and the Citizen's Company 68 as against only 69 ambulance calls. Ordinarly the number of ambul- ance runs will far exceed fire calls. In many instances of the more recent fires, the blame can be pla- ced on sheer carelessness with small ,brush fires being started to fire about 500 acres of woods and brushland were burned over Fri day afternoon in the Christ Chur- ch and Shenandale section of the Blue Ridge Mountains Southeast of Charles Town. 100 Men Fought Blaze Tri-County Forest Protector Janles Honaker said ,more than 100 men, most of them firemen from Charles Town, battled this blaze for more than 12 hours be- fore bringing it under control a- I bout 2 a. m. Saturday morning. IThe fire was said to have started about 10 a. m. Friday on the How ell property where wash water was being heated over an outside fire. The Sire got out of control but was not reported to Charles Town's two fire companies until around 4 p. m. At one time the fire threat ened two homes and some Sum- mer cabins in the area. One of the four fire season viol ation arrests was made in connec- .Lion with this fire, i.t was reported. In this fire along with about a hundred men all but one .piece of the fire-fighting equipment in Charles Town was sent into the area along with a large water tank truck belonging to Shenandoah Downs Race track, plus the Har- pers Ferry company's truck. The Berryville (Vs.) fire truck came to Charles Town to standby. In this fire, as on several others which have occurred in the past week the modern communications system which is to be installed in Charles Town, would have helped matel-ially in not only handling communications between the men and eqti!P~gr~t at the fire site and the~flre stations in Charles Town, but it would also have been of even more value in contacting the Harpers Ferry, Berryville. Shepherdstown and Martinsburg companies. No accurate estimate of the fire damage of the past week has been made as yet, but with hundreds of acres of woodland and brush hav- ing been burned over, plus slight damage to some properties, it will There' Always Plenty of FREE the Timq Your " You All of PHONE 159 WEST WASHINGTON STREET CHARLES TOWN, W.
