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." 1 141111111111111111111111 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 despair. 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 .,.„,„„ BERMUDA 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 ATLANTIC UNION GLEANER 2 thing which h find true hap what he believ so made us tha permit real pea ing his energie in doing what The applicat could make t could add ne their lives. As Christia world on the salvation, let u by pursuing th for the conten tasks of life. all things thro let us be happ alloweth." No one can ess if he is ignoring to be right. God has he conscience will not unless one is expendin doing his duty and knows to be right. n of these simple rules usands happy. And it zest and meaning to who seek to sell the y of life which leads to add to our effectiveness rules which will make d performance of the owing that we can do h Christ, (Phil. 4:13) Souther New England Conference fficers Re-Elected By W. J. ACKETT, President Atlantic nion Conference Delegates of he Southern New England Conferen met for the nineteenth biennial sessio on Sunday, May 10, in the beautiful new cafeteria building of Pioneer Valley Academy in New Braintree, Massachusetts. Theodore Carcich, vice-president for North America and a former president of the Southern New England Conference, M. L. Mills attended and gave the devotional essage. M. L. Mill was unanimously reelected as pre ent and A. E. Harms as secretary-t asurer. Also re-elected were all the ther members of the England Conference Southern Ne staff as well s the Book and Bible House manag Concerning the work in Southern New Englan Elder Mills reported: There were 45 accessions to the church during the pa biennium which results in a total me ership of 6,070. During the two-year nod tithe amounted to was an 8-1/2 per cent $2,057,590 w gain for the nod. The gifts to missions for the ame period aggregated $596,270 or a ain of nearly 4 per cent. Out of the xty-one conferences in North Amen , Southern New England was amo g the nine who reached the Silver V guard goal in the last Ingathering c paign. Five new churches have been organized and accepted into the sisterhood of churches. These include Northboro, Sterling, Leominster, and Brimfield in Massachusetts, and the Bridgeport Spanish in Connecticut. Highlight of the day for the delegates was the tour of the newly completed academy facilities which included the cafeteria and kitchen, and the boys' dormitory. All rejoice at the progress that has been made thus far. Construction has started on the girls' dormitory which will complete the present phase of the building program, and it is anticipated that the doors will be open for our youth in the fall of 1965. The Plans Committee brought in a number of resolutions that were voted which included a resolution of gratitude, a resolution putting the conference on record as being opposed to the Becker Amendment to the Constitution, and a resolution encouraging the widespread use of the daily Voice of Prophecy broadcast. A five-year plan was introduced which would place a number of Spirit of Prophecy volumes into every Adventist home in the conference at a very nominal cost. May God richly bless the members and workers of this challenging conference as they move forward in a united way to advance the work of God in a mighty way in the days ahead.

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. Smoke Signals is available through your Book and Bible House. 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.

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 steadily. 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. G. R.

Greater New York Moves Forward 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. D. E. LATHAM Secretary Treasurer 5 ATLANTIC UNION GLEANER R. R.

Name Church Address (Street) 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 appeal. 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- (City) 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, 7 ATLANTIC UNION GLEANER 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.) H. E.

The purpose of the visit was to acquaint the mayor with the work of Seventh-day Adventists in the Syracuse area. The cause of God has been advanced by this friendly visit with the chief executive of the hub city of New York State, Mayor Walsh of Syracuse. JOHN MILTON, Director Public Relations 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 11. 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.

HELP THE BLIND TO SEE By THEODORE CARCICH, Vice President, NORTH AMERICAN DIVISION 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, Nebraska. On Sabbath, June 13, an offering will be received in all churches to make possible the Braille publication of such books as Desire of Ages, Steps to Christ, Great Controversy, et cetera. If a schoolteacher was willing to collect 300,000 trading stamps to bring five blind children to see the president's grave, what should God's people give to help the great number of blind to "see" their way out of the grave? Whether you give $1000, $500, $100, or $1.00, mark your offering "Christian Record" or just "Offering for the blind." We are counting on you to do your best for the blind on Sabbath, June 13. no lovelier way to thank god for your Jight than by giving a helping hand to Joineone in the dark.-Helen Keller.

The speaker closed his appeal by referring to Christ's message to the church as recorded in Matthew 25 and asked the question: "Are you glorifying God by using your talents in His service?" When the nations are gathered before Him, there will be but two classes, and their eternal destiny will be determined by what they have done or have neglected to do for Him in the person of the poor and the suffering. --Desire of Ages, p. 637. 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 Haiti. 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. H. W.

The other 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. A. F. LAYMAN Southern New England MERLE L. MILLS, President ARTHUR E.

Mrs. Althea Babb paid for the Bible Story out of her own The week end of April 30-May 3 marked the centennial of the South Lancaster Village church for it was on April 30, 1964, that the church was organized. Elder Adams, the pastor, had a wellplanned program. Among the speakers were 0. D. Wright, a former pastor and president of the Arkansas-Louisiana Conference; Arthur White, secretary of the Ellen G. White Publications; and F. D. Nichol, editor of the Review and Herald. Joseph Melashenko was in charge of the music for the week end. 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. LEST WE FORGET Frank Tyler delivering books to librarian, Mrs. Althea Babb 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.

Lett: El r Hutchins at the keyboard of the new Baldwin organ. Elder White and the group who toured historical spots on Sunday. ATLANTIC UNION GLEANER 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 Stoneham. 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. F. L. MILLET Chippy 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 winter. 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 right away and plan on a good time this summer.

OBITUARIES BLOOD-Mrs. Flora Ann Blood was born on July 5, 1871, in a Scotch settlement twelve miles from Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada, and fell asleep in Jesus on April 21, 1964, at the Marlboro Hospital in Marlboro, Massachusetts, at the age of ninety-two. Her father was Kenneth MacLeod and her mother was Sarah MacDonald. On July 5, 1896, she was united in marriage with George H. Blood, Sr., of Lancaster, Massachusetts. To this union were born a son, George H. Blood, deceased; two daughters, Mabel J. Blood-Wright of Worcester, Massachusetts, and Ada M., of Marlboro, Massachusetts with whom she made her home. Mrs. Blood joined the Seventh-day Adventist Church at the age of twenty-five. She was active in Dorcas activities for over twentynine years and was a diligent worker in the Ingathering program as long as health would permit. She was a charter member of three different churches, first in Framingham, then in Hudson, and just recently in the newly organized church in Northboro. Funeral services were conducted at the Merrill Funeral Home in Hudson by the writer, assisted by Elder Skilton. She rests in the hope of the first resurrection when Jesus will call to life all those who have laid down their burdens after lives of dedicated service for Him. K, W. HUTCHINS PUBLICOVER-William Robert Publicover was born January 12, 1882, on Prince Edward Island, Canada. He came to Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1895 and lived there all the rest of his life.

Services were held in the Watson Funeral Home in Cambridge and he was laid to rest in Gethsemane Cemetery, West Roxbury, Massachusetts. VICTOR W. COLLINS WIELT-Henry Wielt Jr. was born July 15, 1886, at Brooklyn, New York, and passed to his rest Sunday morning, April 26, 1964, at his home in Buskirk, New York.

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. C. J.

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 heaven." 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."
