the deal for the sale of the old
poof farm to the Schwarzchtld

It was the opinion of the Rev.
Albert Edgar Warner, Jr., of
Edmond, Okla., who supplied the
pulpit of the First Presbyterian,
church at Tenth street and Forest

the church should apply the prin-

the work of religion mora than it
is doing at present. His subject

he affirmed that when Christ sent
out his twelve disciples, command-
ing them, "Go ye into all tine
world and preach the gospel to
every creature," he commissioned
them to advertise Him and His
gospel to all creation. Developing
this idea, the preacher said in
"Every Christian was intended
to be an advertiser and a careful
study of the early centuries of the
qhurch's history shows that the
church grew with wonderful rap-
idity because it advertised Christ
and the principles which He
taught. The early Christians went

per. Martin Luther brought back
power and prosperity to a decad-
ent church because he advertised
anew the sweet and simple prin
iples of the gospel of Christ,
when heretofore men had heard
only of scholasticism, monastieism
and ecclesiasticism. The great re-
vivals of the Eighteenth and Nine-
teenth centuries came to the
church because great leaders like
Wesley and Edwards and Finney
and Moody did not hesitate to ad-
vertise Christ, bringing Him per-
sistently and insistently to the at-
tention of the non-chureh going
Not Advertising Enough.
''Because of the prayerlessness
and selfishness of a large portion
of the church membership of to-
day, the church is not advertising
Christ to the world as it ought
and is not bringing its. founder to
the forefront as it ought. The two
great methods of modern advertis-
ing, advertising by publicity and
by personality, arc being ignored
sadly by the church.
"The church is not making
enough: use of the advertising col-
umns of the daily press. To all
intents and purposes the official
boards of the churches of this city
have relegated Christ and His gos-
pel to the finest print in a part of
the paper where no one sees it un-
less lie is looking for it. The
churches of this great city should
use a whole page each Saturday
in every daily in the city, worthily
presenting the claims of religion
upon a population, three-fourths
of whom do not go to church at
But better than display adver-
tising in the columns of the daily
press is the daily advertising of
a consistent Christian life. This
is the unanswerable argument,
which tlii! men and women of the
world cannot meet. And yet, not
withstanding this, it is today, as
Bishop Satterlec once said, 'Many
in America who are being attract-
ed to the church by the teachings
of Christ are being repelled from
the church by the un Christian
lives of many of its professed fol-
