h- violins we~t strike, the or- Dr. Foremlm ehestra would have to fold up till they came back again. So it is with the people who, so to speak, play second fiddles all ~eir lives. They may not sit in l~he front row and they may not play the principal melody, but we cannot do wi~kout them. The true music of life must have them. --and Silao,.. $1lag and,,. There was a man named Silas, who is r~entione@ a mm~ber of times in the New Testament; but rmver mentioned alone. He is al- ways somebody's eo~npanion, al- ways a member of a team. It is "Paul and Silas," "Judas and Silas," "Silas and Timothy" ("Sil- vanus" in 1 These. 2:1 is the same name, like William and Bill); even when Silas is mentioned alone, as he is by Saint Pater~ he is helping some one else. Ap- l~#~tl~ yott never thought of Silaa without tkird~ng of some one else too. Now this is nothing against him. He was sh-apl$ a second-fiddle man. He was no soloist, hut the music the early church played, so to speak, would have missed sometking of irapor. tance if he had not been playing. Sometimes football or other ath- letic teams will vote for the player "most valuable to the t~a~" This one Is very seldom the man the public watches for and hears most about. Hero and Leader Being, second-fiddle, or support- ing actor, or team-mate or what- ever you call it, does not mean that one leaves great accomplish- ments to others. The second rid- cue's work is cut out for him and the conductor of the orchestra ex- pects to hear him. SO it was with this ~as. The early Christians recognized him as a leader; in- deed that is the way he is duced at the first mention of his name. Furthermore, he was called a "prophet," which does not mean a reader of tea leaves or crystal balls, it means an in- spired preacher. Other men learned the will of Cod through ~ning to him. Besides this, he could be a hero when the time came. His name will always be remembered alongside that of Paul in the incident at Philllpi, when they were both beaten and thrown into jail; it was no solo the prisoners heard a.t midnight it was a duet. Paul and Silas both, in the midst of that ugly place, sang their hymns together. Indispensable Mon In one sense, nobody is indus. pensable. Everybody dies sooner or later, therefore those who are left behind can, if they have to, get along without him. But when - we speak of indispensable men we mean men we don't inCend to get along without, unless we have to. When Barnabas and Paul split up, Paul had to have some one, he needed a helper. If Silas was less impressive than Barnabas (as he was, to be sure, for nobody ever mistook Silas for the king of the gods, ae they mistook Barnabas once) at any race Paul needed him. On one occasion Paul simply would go no farther on his impor- tant journey until Silas and Timo- thy could catch~ up with him and they could all go on together. When Saint Pebsr set out to white a letter he needed some one to help him, and Sila~ was the man. Peter did not have to mention Silas' name, but he wanted all his readers to know it was Silas who belpe~ him. SO the reader of the Bible who is helped by this first k~ter of, l~r may be thankful for the man Silas; the same thing is true of i Thessalonians. For the obscure who help the great, let us give thanksl (Bused on outlines copyrighted by the Dl~Ision of Chris~n Education, ~stionsl Council of the Churches of Christ in the U. S. A.

Without a strong Church, neither democracy nor ci~4.1ization can sux- circ. There are four sound reasons why every person should attend scrd~ regularly and support the Chu~h. They are: (1) For his own sake. (2) For his children's sake. (3) For the sake of his community and nation. (4) For th~ salve of the Church itself, which needs his moral and matcrial support.
