All over America, the churches enjoy record attendances. While we join in the outward observance of Easter--the egg hunts, the new finery, it is well to pause and think about the spiritual reason for the celebration. Here is how it was described in the gospel of St. Matthew: "And the angel answered and said to the women, 'Fear not ye; for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here, for he'is risen, as he said. Come see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly and tell his disciples that hg is risen from the dead; and behold, he goeth before ,you into Galilee ; there ye shall see him. Lo, I have told you.' Civilization has come a long way. It's a good time to count our blessings and let good deeds speak for us. MRS. REID GERONIMO Harpers Ferry P.T.A.
