Engel The cross is expressive of our Savior's deepest humiliation. His resurrection is Hist highest exaltation; the crpss is indicative of the judgement which God had passed upon the world of sin, the resurrection of Christ is the absolution or justification of the entire world from sin and condemnation. Very early on Easter morning a number of. women were on their way to the Savior's tomb with their carefully prepared burial spices. It was still dark when they left their homes. There was also the darkness of sorrow in their hearts. They thought that they had forever lost Jesus. They grieved that death had robbed them of His blessed fellowship. His saving message had seemingly ended in disappointment . It seemed that the enemies had triumphed. And who would roll away the stone for them. When these women arrived at the tomb, the sun had risen & dispelled the darkness of night. Even so the great Easter fact had taken place to bring light and joy to all hearts. There was. no dead body in the tomb to anoint. Gloriously, victoriously Jesus had risen and passed through, burial clothes and rock-hewn tomb. The stone had been rolled away. An angelic messenger had already rolled it away to reveal an empty grave. There was no reason for spiritual confusion and hopelessness. Fellowship with the Lord, far from ended, was held out to His believers in even richer form. There was io triumph of Christ's enemies to grieve over. Only because the great Easter fact of Christ's resurrection was still unknown to the women was there gloom and sadness in their hearts. Must we not say. the same thing of the gliSjh^ and sadness that crowds its way into our Christian lives? It is there because the joyful light of the Easter truth has, not fully illuminated our hearts. If we are troubled about our salvation, we are forgetting that Christ rose for our justification. If we grieve over the seeming triumph of Christ's enemies, we are missing the truth that the risen Lord is reigning in their midst and making them unwittingly serve His purposes. If we are fretting about tasks that seem insurmountable, we are losing sight of the fact that our risen Lord is ever present in His power and grace to help and to provide. All gloom and sadness is dispelled by the joyful Easter message: He is risen. He is risen indeed. The exalted Lord lives and reigns forever! wedding trip. When they return, they will make their home at 313 North Ann Arbor Street. The bride graduated from Saline High School and attended Cleary College. The groom also attended Saline High School and is employed at the Saline Dairy as plant manager.

The speaker of the evening was Robert Maddex, agricultural engineering specialist at Michigan State College. He was introduced by Donald B. Johnson, county agricultural agent. Several points of interest were brought out. During a discussion on the amount of money invested in" farm machinery on the average farm, it was estimated that 75 percent of those present had over $7,000 invested and that 25 per cent had over $10,000 invested. A question raised was, who is the mechanic on your farmi? In most cases you have to be your own mechanic and a good one. It was pointed out that a farm shop can be of great help economically, and it also can be an expensive investment. A drill and grinder are very helpful in a farm shop but not essential. It was stated at the meeting that electric welders and oxya- cetylene welders will pay for cost of equipment within a few years. Approximately five percent* of total investment in machinery is spent per year for repair and labor. A farm shop does not have to be elaborate, but it should have a place for tools, be adequately heated, and • be large enough to work on equipment. It was the speaker's experience that shops without heat were seldom used during cold weather. Safety around the shop was discussed. This covered fire precaution, injury to the operator and use of good lighting.
