FOR YOUR EDIFICATION: "The optimist says things never are as bad as they seem, the pessimist says they're never as good as they seem. .. and the sensible man agrees with both their viewpoints. That is, he doesn't exaggerate the importance of good news, but neither does he exaggerate significance of bad news. He can read the newspapers and listen to the radio without risking his sanity or endangering his heart. Why? Simply because he never forgets that all contemporary events are merely parts in a much larger picture, and none of them has an established and final face value until time has put those events in their proper perspective." — Lifetime Sneaker Encyclopedia HOYT H. HOUCHEN, 12528 E. Alaska Place, Aurora, Colorado

"I have recently preached in a gospel meeting at the Northeast congregation which meets in Colorado Springs, Colorado at 6323 East Platte, in the Eastgate Shopping Center. H. L. Bruce is the preacher there and is doing a commendable job. The group is small in number but strong in faith. The Harvey Clark and Levoy Free families are now working with this church and they are great strength and encouragement.

"Our work at Boston Street, 1297 Boston Street in Aurora, Colorado, continues to grow and the work is very encouraging. We had record attendances this past summer with visitors attending from all over the nation. On one Sunday we had 168 in Bible classes and 217 in the morning assembly.

"My meetings this year have been in Fort Collins, Colorado; Booneville, Mississippi; Portales, New Mexico; Columbus, Indiana; Bradley, Illinois; Lubbock, Texas (West End); Brownwood, Texas (Woodland Heights); and Colorado Springs, Colorado. I am to be with the Maryvale church in Phoenix, Arizona, Nov. 16-22 and this will complete my meeting schedule for this year.

"In addition to my support, the Boston Street church is aiding in the support of Herbert Eraser at Fort Collins, Colorado; H. L. Bruce at Colorado Springs, Colorado, and Karl Diestlekamp in Milwaukee, Wisconsin."
