playgrounds and recreational facilities". Every

it is with all things, playgrounds, unfortunately:
cost money lots of money. Committees form

the summer months have invariably been mel
after a request for money, with the age-old song
"Why that's going to cost too much. We're jus
ordinary folks, we can't pay that for play super
vision and facilities". And so project after pro
ject has died on its feet. But still the hue and
cry is for playgrounds not just ordinary play
grounds but first class playgrounds and th
one provision is that it must not cost anybody
a penny except maybe somebody else.
Of course a playground of this kind mus

Cost the Rotarians around $2,000.00, which they
didn't happen to have right now, besides the
cost of the lot which they purchased some few
years ago for a scout hut. Upon the develop-

moved so as not to hurt the value of the homes'
going up moved the hut at Rotary expense off
their own lot to help somebody else and the
people were very appreciative as they should be.
Now the Rotary Club wants to help the children
of these and other children about the town by
constructing a playground.
But some of the good citizens along Wood-

their street. "We want playgrounds, but put

'I believe that we can grow in
Faith in many ways but here we
want to look at two of these ways.
1. In our ability to worship.
2. In our obedience to God's will.

growth as Christians we have cer-.
tain goals set before us.
First, to develop from spiritual
infancy to spiritual maturity and
to express such maturity in our
relationship to others.
Second, to contribute as a mem-
ber of the body of Christ of that
sacred body, just as each member
of the human body contributes to
the well-being of the whole.
Third, to grow in grace and in
the knowledge of Christ, constantly
adding Christian virtues to our
Fourth, above all to manifest in
our daily relationships that love'
which is "the bond of perfectness".
Hopfner says: "Four things are nec-

Faith mkkes a Christian; life proves
a Christian; trials confirm a Chris*

Are we growing as Christians, in.
wisdom stature and obedience to
the will of God for our life.

BY RUSSELL KAY
Don't worry if your town is small,
i' it isn't growing as rapidly as
some neighboring community, if
new industries are passing it by.
Bigness isn't necessarily a bles-
sing. When a small town spreads
out and becomes a metropolitan
city a lot of things happen to it
that detract from the joy of living.
It loses its charm, its warmth and
its neighborly spirit.
Many tributes have been written
to the small town but one of the
best that has come to my attention
was published recently in the Flor-
ida Municipal Record. It was taken
from the Surface Creek News, pub-
lished at Cedaredge, Colorado. It
sums up the advantages of the
small town so clearly and forcefully
that I thought you would enjoy
reading it. Here it is:
"A small town is where every-
body knows your business and yet
they will make it their business if
anyone in the community needs
help. It is where folks will talk
about you and then talk for you
when the chips are down. It is
