laye, assisted by Mr. and Mis. I faf
ftnberger, soloist, choir director and
pianist. Evangelist DeLaye is a di-
rector of International Federation of
Christian Workers, and is 2nd vice-
president of the International feder-
ation Publishing Co. While a com-
parative stranger to the good people
l! Tahlequah, he conies to us highly
recommended. He and ills P^rty
have conducted scccessfcl meetings
throughout Texas, Arizona Califor-
nia. Iowa, Kansas. Colorado, Missou-
ri anil Tennessee. '
The churches alid business people
whom DeLaye and party have served
are enthusiastic in their praise of
them. The Macon Herald says:
"Evangelst DeLaye is master of
assemblies, he draws, holds or takes
his audience with him with ease.
The Rev. Safuel Warner, Ph. D„
pastor M. E. church, Kansas City, Mo
savs: "Evangelist DeLaye and par-
ty did a great work with us. They
are clean, sensible, religious and con-
secrated, and will do good wherever
"DeLaye is regarded as one of the
most eloquent pulpit orators who has
ever been in the city."—Beaumont,
(Texas) Daily Enterprise.
Pfaffenberger is a great soloist
and choir director. He knows how
to sing and how to get other people
to sing. He impresses people at once
that he is a gestleman of the first
water with his clearness and con-
Tahlequah people are to be con-
gratulated upon having an oppor-
tunity to hear these people.
Do not forget the date. Sunday
