How to Be Happy
By C. G. EDWARDS, District Leader
Southern New England Conference
Some years ago a humble man in
Yugoslavia longed to serve God and
help others to know of the love of Jesus.
So he walked to a nearby city and gave
out literature from door to door.
There was intense prejudice in this
city, however, and certain ruffians
threatened him if he should return. Despite these threats, he was undaunted.
The next week he returned to do this
work again.
That night as he walked home, he
was set upon by a gang of rough men
and beaten and finally tossed in the
ditch, where his persecutors left him
for dead.
Back in the city where he had given
out literature a man who had read his
tracts and whose heart had been
touched by them, heard that he had
been assaulted. He went out into the
night to try to find him.
When he found our Christian brother he was still alive, and the man was
instrumental in getting him into a hospital. Soon the word was flashed to
some nearby ministers who rushed to
the hospital to give comfort and to
pray. When they approached the bedside, they noticed that their brother and
friend was so badly beaten he was hardly recognizable. His face was almost a
bloody pulp. And yet when he regained
consciousness, they saw his lips moving
and, when they leaned over to hear
what he said, these words came from
that tortured body: "Tell the brethren
that I am happy."
In direct contrast to this spirit of
tranquillity was the distraught attitude
of a famous movie actress a few years
ago, who had everything money could
buy and, in addition, she had fame and
popularity. Yet, at the height of her
career, she committed suicide—in utter
Millions are seeking for happiness,
many times in a wild and reckless
search. They search for it in riches, in
the wine cup, or in the pleasure centers.
Forty-seven billion dollars a year are
gambled away in this country in the
vain search for peace and happiness.
How is happiness to be attained?
The most powerful and successful
demonstrations of happiness in the
midst of affliction and trouble have
come from Christians. Witness the
apostle Paul, and his co-worker Silas in
a Philippian jail with their feet fast in
the stocks, and yet they are singing at
midnight. (Acts 16) Their hearts are
full of praise to God and happy contentment. Note the significant words
of the apostle Paul: "I have learned, in
whatsoever state I am, therewith to be
content" (Phil. 4:11).
Some of the great martyrs of history
were described by eyewitnesses to have
gone to be burned at the stake while
singing songs of praise to God. The
supreme examples of contentment are
found among Christians. What, then,
is the secret?
First of all, one can never find happiness by making that the goal of his
Number 21
life. Notice the great words of Jesus,
"He that findeth his life shall lose it:
and he that loseth his life for my sake
shall find it" (Matt. 10:39). One sure
way to lose happiness is by the selfcentered approach. Our lives must be
unselfish—they must be absorbed in
thinking of others and doing for others.
The moment we begin to think of ourselves we begin to lose the contentment
which is so important. We must make
it a habit to think always of others
and of their happiness. This very act
will contribute much toward the wellbeing of our own lives.
A second great principle that will
make for happiness in the life is absolute and complete trust in the watch
care and the goodness and power of
God. Notice the words of Proverbs
16:20: "Whoso trusteth in the Lord,
happy is he." If one believes in God's
watch care and personal interest in
people as Jesus taught in Matthew
10:29-31, he can face any problem no
matter how big, and be contented and
happy in the realization that through
God all things are possible.
He will make the principle of . Romans 8:28 his own: "And know that
all things work together for good to
them that love God, to them that are
the called according to his purpose."
When difficulties and trials come, he
will go to God in prayer, asking for
divine help, with the absolute assurance
and belief that no problem is without
solution, if our trust is in the guidance
of our Heavenly Father.
The third fundamental rule for happiness is right-doing. Proverbs 29:18
tells us: "Where there is no vision, the
people perish: but he that keepeth the
law, happy is he."
The apostle Paul expresses the same
principle in Romans 14:22. "Happy is
he that condemneth not himself in that

Did You Know?
Emphysema, a deadly suffocationtype disease caused mostly by cigarette
smoking, has now passed tuberculosis
as a cause of death, according to the
May Smoke Signals.
Almost unknown fifty years ago,
emphysema has rocketed into the ranks
of major killers today. Nine out of
every ten victims are long-time smokers. Thus, smokers now have another
specter to face when they begin or continue the smoking habit.

Thirteenth Sabbath Offering
for North America
The American Indians were the first
people to live in North America, They
were here centuries before Christopher
Columbus reached the western hemisphere.
These aborigines, figuratively speaking, have been pushed into the background and almost forgotten. Yet, "If
a red man ... gives his heart to God in
obedience and faith, Jesus loves him
none the less for his color. He calls him
His well-beloved brother."—Christian
Service, p. 218.
We are happy to announce that the
General Conference Committee has
voted to allocate the 13th Sabbath overflow for the second quarter of 1964 to
the "Red Indians" of North America.
Our projects are: (1) The up-grading
of the Navaho Mission School in Arizona; (2) The purchase of a medical

Columbia, Canada; (3) The erection of
a new school for the Indians in the
northern section of the Carolina Conference.
All will be pleased for this announcement, but perhaps some will wonder
why it is necessary for a 13th Sabbath
overflow to go to a home base like
North America.
The facts are that most Indians live
in territories where our conferences are
small and do not have funds to carry on
this mission work. Thus little has been
done—except in the Pacific Union—
during the past 100 years or more.
The 1960 Decennial Census enumerated 523,591 Indians in the United
States. In addition, over 28,000 Eskimos
and Aleuts were enumerated in the
State of Alaska. Of the 552,000 Indians
and Alaskan natives in the United
States, it is estimated that about 345,000
live on reservations or similar jurisdictional areas of the Bureau of Indian
Affairs, with about 207,000 living in
other parts of the country.
Following the discovery of America
by Columbus, the number of Indians
gradually decreased from about 846,000
until, in the latter part of the nineteenth century, the estimated Indian
population was approximately 243,000.
Since then the number has increased
The souls of our North American
Indians living within the shadow of
our own doors are as precious as are
the souls in far away Africa, India and
the islands of the sea.
The gospel must go to all the world
—to every nation, kindred tongue and
people. Therefore, we plead for a most
liberal overflow this coming 13th Sabbath, June 27, 1964.

Five-Day Plan
The Five-Day No-Smoking Plan introduced by the Atlantic Union Conference has proved to be of wide benefit
both on the East Coast and throughout
the North American Division. Greater
New York has been no exception in
taking advantage of government medical releases on smoking and cancer and
other diseases and has promptly
launched into a series of Five-Day
clinics. The first clinic held in Hunter
College attracted 2,000 people and
this was followed by two more in Manhattan, one at the Academy of Medicine and one at the High School of
Fashion. Since that time a new team
consisting of Elder J. R. Hoffman and
Dr. Dunbar Smith have conducted
three such clinics on Long Island, one
at Port Washington, one in Wantagh,
and one in Forest Hills. The last two
were conducted in Jewish Synagogues
at the request of the rabbis and other
influential people in the synogogue.
The latest clinic was scheduled for
Great Neck, Long Island, in the Saddle
Rock School and began May 10 with
this same team. Approximately three
thousand have attended the six clinics
that have been held and it is hoped that
many more can be conducted both in
the Long Island and in the Manhattan
area of New York City.
Berkshire Auditorium
A contract has been let to the Timber
Structures Incorporated to erect an
auditorium at Camp Berkshire 120
feet wide and 140 feet long to replace
the auditorium that was destroyed by
fire last July. Laminated timbers are
now in the process of being manufactured and it is thought that they will
arrive on the premises sometime the
latter part of May. It is in the plans that
the building will be far enough along
to use as a main gathering place for
the 1964 camp meeting.

In case of emergency, notify:
we are joining hands in this intensive
personal evangelistic outreach." Several
leading laymen including George Suhrie of New Jersey praised the Crusade's
objectives as they participated in the
Keynote of the Crusade launching
was given by Ralph Watts, one of the
vice-presidents of the General Conference. In a heart-probing appeal he emphasized that there are thousands in
this giant city and its environs who are
waiting for God's message to be
brought to them. "Success is sure as
we harness God's power to a fully committed witness for Christ," he declared.
Responding for the laymen in this
concerted soul-winning endeavor was
Emilio Knechtle, originator of the Crusade, who has injected great fervor into
the laymen's action program. "I was
simply amazed at the centrality of the
cross in the Seventh-day Adventists be-
liefs. I thought the church was legalistic in its thinking. Many of my
friends in the upper echelons of evangelical circles have this false concept.
This program is designed to give the
true picture of God's remnant church,"
Knechtle declared.
Climax to the laymen's appeal was
the charge given by W. J. Hackett,
Atlantic Union Conference president.
The challenge, centered on the cross,
hid all to see the Lamb staggering
under the cross, Christ agonizing in the
throes of a sinner's death on the cross,
and rising victorious as a conqueror
over the power of sin and death. "I
charge you to tarry no more," he
appealed as hearts in turn responded
with wholehearted dedication.
Following demonstrations of the
"how" techniques all were invited to
experience the thrills of "Do It Yourself" by crusade co-ordinators, union,
and local home missionary leaders, H.
W. Peterson, and H. E. Voorhees. The
Crusade is being followed by additional
training sessions in local churches. The
soul-reaching tools are letters, introductions to Christ, and a new series of
Christ-centered Bible lessons.
Succinct was the close with the
power-capsulated thought: "And I,
when I am lifted up from the earth,
will draw all men to myself" (John
12:32 R.S.V.)

Baptism at Utica
Sabbath, April 11, was an eventful
day at Utica, when for the first time
the ordinances of humility and the
Lord's Supper were celebrated in the
new church building. These services
were well attended, and in the afternoon the entire district met in the new
sanctuary for the first baptismal service to be held in the new house of
worship, during which 18 were baptized.
We are reminded of I Corinthians
3:5-9 where the question is implied,
"Who is a worker for Christ?", and
also the implied statement, "Someone
planted, another watered, arid God
gave the increase." The faithful work
of previous pastors, including that of
Benjamin F. Hartman, is richly bearing
fruit. The late Mrs. Anna May Shull,
who worked so diligently in time past,
is responsible for several who followed
their Lord, including the Robert B.
Olsen family and a number of their
friends. Joseph Twing and his good
wife exerted a strong influence and
helped in a wonderful way in preparing for the results witnessed on April
It was a real pleasure, too, for all concerned to have Roscoe W. Moore, our
conference president, present on April
25 at the worship services in this district when he joined in extending the
right hand of fellowship and welcomed
those joining with their particular
church group.
We praise the dear Lord for His
blessings, and trust confidently for the
future, as we continue to work with
others for another baptismal service.
We solicit your prayers, and will be
happy to pray for you in return, as we
work together in cooperation with the
Lord in preparation for the wonderful events that God has planned for the
remnant church.

Recently five blind children came to the Arlington National
Cemetery to see President Kennedy's grave. The schoolteacher, who
accompanied the children from Massachusetts, personally collected
300,000 trading stamps to make the trip possible. Watching the children
grope in their effort to reverently feel the wooden fence surrounding the
grave—for this was the only way they could "see" the grave—caused the
eyes of observers to mist and strong men to look away. The experience
helped all to appreciate the blessings of sight and to strengthen the
hands of any who labor for the blind.
As a church we have the responsibility of helping thousands of
blind people in North America to see God's truth for these last days.
The sightless, as the children at President Kennedy's grave, can only
"see" God's truth by feeling it with their fingertips on the Braille pub-'
lications prepared by the Christian Record Braille Foundation of Lincoln,
On Sabbath, June 13, an offering will be received in all churches

The main feature of the afternoon
session was a firsthand, eyewitness report by Rene Adrien of the disaster
which struck Haiti last October. The
three Northeastern Dorcas federations
went into action immediately when
news reached them of the disaster with
earnest appeals for help. In twenty-four
hours they had sixteen tons of clothing,
food, and medicine ready to be flown
to Haiti by the Navy and Pan-American airways. A total of 120 bales had
to be gathered, prepared, and packed
for shipment. One hundred twentynine women and a few men worked
around the clock to speed the needed
food and clothing to Haiti. One thousand dollars in cash was also raised and
given to our people, mostly through our
local conference in Haiti. Then Northeastern Conference sent Pastor Adrien
over in person to visit our people and
help in supervision of the materials and
money. Letters of gratitude and appreciation were read from the people of
The kind of ministry God would
have His people do at this time is clearly outlined in the fifty-third chapter of
Isaiah. When put into actual practice,
it will bring new life into our churches.
This chapter should be read over and
over again as it contains information
of the highest importance. The poor,
the unfortunate, the sick and suffering,
are God's legacy to His church. They
are placed among us for a purpose—the
development of a godlike character. By
unselfish ministry to their needs our
sympathies are drawn out, efficacy is
given to our prayers, and a character is
formed after the divine similitude.

Several weeks ago we had a lead card
for the town of Wilton, Maine. While
we were there (Frank Tyler and I), I
asked him if there was anyone else in
town we could visit besides the person
who sent in the lead card. He informed
me that the minister of the Congregational church was interested in the
Bible Story.

books they purchased are to be paid for
by the town of Wilton. They purchased
one set of the Bible Story, one set of
Bedtime Stories, and one year's subscription to Life and Health.
The librarian made the statement
that she was pleased to get the books
because they needed something to counteract the comic books and other books
of that nature. The thought came to
me that God has many strange and
unusual ways to carry on His work
while we are sleeping.

On Sunday, Elder White led a large
group on a tour of historical sites in
and around South Lancaster and New
Hampshire. The following historical
article appeared in the centennial bulletin.

One hundred years ago, this April 30, 1964,
God in His Providence chose to gather in a
small hamlet in Massachusetts, known as
South Lancaster, a church which would become one of the mighty factors in giving the
Advent message to the world.
One of the pioneer founders of this body,
Stephen N. Haskell, was led by the Spirit of
God to establish a church society on that day
and eighteen years later a school. This was
indeed a day of small beginnings in which a
carriage shop became the cradle of the South
Lancaster Seventh-day Adventist church and
then the Atlantic Union College.

historical spots on Sunday.
The infant church had eight charter members, four men and their wives. It was born
in the home of Lewis Priest in North Lancaster. On a faded page, evidently from the first
church record, the following names are inscribed: Stephen N. Haskell, Mary How Haskell, Lewis Priest, Jr., Mary L. Priest, Henry
Priest, Maria Priest, Benjamin F. Rice, Roxie
A. Rice. This small beginning was in truth
a dream child of those Adventist pioneers,
who in organizing the Seventh-day Adventist
church that same year, looked for its growth
• into a world-wide movement. But even their
dreams could hardly have envisioned the
worldwide influence the South Lancaster
church was destined to have.
In its early years the growing church had no
permanent abiding place. Like Israel of old
they moved from place to place. Not long after the organization in North Lancaster, Lewis
Priest, Jr., and his brother Henry moved to
the South Village, Lewis purchasing the
white cottage that stands north of the campground on Sawyer Street. Now the Sabbath
services were held in South Lancaster. In 1869
they met in the Odd Fellows Hall over Turner's blacksmith shop. Later, they used a
large room in the Rice home, until that house
was sold. The now homeless church group
was delighted to accept the offer of S. N. Haskell's carriage shop as a sanctuary in which
to worship their God. This shop was located
on the Haskell estate near the present site
of our present church, the building was 20
feet by 25 feet and was used until 1877, when
it was discarded, being too small.
Years went by. In the fall of 1877 a general meeting was held in South Lancaster but
the church was too small to house the group,
so a forty-foot tent was pitched to meet the
need. Among other topics discussed was the
question of a suitable church building. This
resulted in the solicitation of donations and
pledges, and the erection of the new building
was begun almost immediately! The following spring, May 1878, the new church was
dedicated. It was fifty-six feet by thirty-two
feet in size and cost three thousand dollars.
In those days it was one of the finest in the
denomination. The membership then was
eighty. Though it has been enlarged several
times since, the original structure still remains as the front part of the present church.
The South Lancaster church is wealthy in
its rich spiritual heritage. Here was the scene
of one of Ellen G. White's visions which God
gave for the encouragement and instruction
of His people. It is recorded in Testimonies to
the Church vol. 5, p. 114.
Here in 1869 was formed the Vigilant Missionary Society for the purpose of distributing
missionary tracts and papers. In 1871 Ellen
and James White visited South Lancaster to
study this work of Haskell and his associates
and were greatly impressed by its organization and effectiveness. They endorsed the
plan and recommended that it be followed by
other churches. From this society came the
formation of our Home Missionary Department of the General Conference and our local
conference Book and Bible houses.
Here in 1870, on the edge of South Lancaster was held the first New England camp
meeting, and where Ellen G. White spoke to
ten thousand people who eagerly gathered
from all over New England to hear her.
Here in the winter of 1899 convened the
General Conference of the Seventh-day Adventist denomination. In that same year also,
the New England Sanitarium was established.
Later it was moved to its present location in
Farewell services for departing missionaries
have been frequent here in South Lancaster.
The first was for J. N. Andrews, when he
sailed in 1874 for his mission field in Europe.
Since that time over three hundred missionaries have departed from this church and the
Atlantic Union College to the four corners of
the earth to give their lives in the furrows of
the world's need.
"What bath God wrought?" This church
has indeed become by the Providence of God,
the focal point of the Advent message in the
East and undoubtedly is destined to fill an
even larger place in the plan of God in the
finishing of the work.
Hello again! Chippy Chipmunk reporting. These beautiful May days
make us realize that camp time is not
very far away. Things are beginning
to come to life here at Camp Winnekeag. The last week- end of April the
M.C.C. from South Lancaster Academy
were here for their annual bivouac.
The weather was beautiful and from
what I observed, they learned a lot and
had a good time.
I understand Elder Lake and his
crew are coming to put in the pier on
the 24th of May. Hope Mr. Sun shines
bright and warm that day because the
water is still plenty chilly. A number of
groups have already reserved the camp
for outings and it is nice to see folks
again. Mr. Doughty came and turned
on the water around the last of April
when they were sure Jack Frost
wouldn't come calling again until next
There are several applications already in for camp. That is the way to
do it, juniors, then you will be sure of
a place when camp starts. We are looking forward to a bigger-and-better-thanever camp this summer. I hear that a
lot of the fellows and girls who have
gone beyond the Junior-Camp age are
interested in coming back to camp to
work. I know for some people the summer would not be complete without
spending some time at Camp Winnekeag. To come to Camp Winn ekeag is
to love it. So get those applications in

this summer. Be seeing you.

different churches, first in Framingham, then
in Hudson, and just recently in the newly
organized church in Northboro.
Funeral services were conducted at the

Margaret and Lehman were married in England, March 3, 1945, during the closing days
of World War II. After coming to the United
States, she was baptized into the Seventh-day
Adventist Church, February 11, 1950, by
A. D. Livengood.
Mrs. Taylor loved her church and served
it well in many ways, the last two of which
were as deaconess and church missionary
secretary. However, her work did not stop
with the church. She served on many civic
committees such as Community Chest, Cancer
Drive, Beecher P.T.A., March of Dimes, and
was this past fall, the co-chairman of the
Mother's March.
Only will eternity tell the Godly influence
she has had on those around her. She now
sleeps waiting for the call of the Life-giver.

Relates to Christian Proclamation." He
has been working for a year on the dissertation, which was completed and
submitted to his graduate school last
Douglass spent the school year 196263 on leave of absence from Atlantic
Union College, living with his family
in Berkeley, California, where the Pacific School of Religion is located. He
remarks that his experience as the only
Adventist there was very valuable, adding that he was "probably one of the
very few conservatives to go through
the program there."
The dean-elect, a native of Springfield, Massachusetts, is an alumnus of
Atlantic Union College, Class of '47.
He is married to Vivienne Trask-Douglass, whom he met at college. With
their four children, they live in a large
old farmhouse off George Hill Road.
After his graduation from college,
Elder Douglass pastored several Illinois
churches. In 1956 he received his M.A.
in systematic theology from the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary, and his B.D. from the same institution the following year.
He was called to the Pacific Union
College religion department, where he
taught until joining the Atlantic Union
College staff in 1960.
Reflecting on his new position, he
said: "The happiest thought at this
time is recognition of the excellent academic posture of Atlantic Union College which Dr. Cleveland bequeaths to
his successor."
He remarked that "Christian education is concerned with the development of commitment of the whole man
as he rightly relates to his Lord in
Elder Douglass concluded with "It
is to this end that the coming years
will be devoted as Atlantic Union College continues to educate its students
for useful service and fullness of meaning in this life and for the life to come."
