Salem, Oregon - Oct. 6, 1970: A new congregation began meeting in South Salem, July 1, 1970. This new work is the result of several months planning on the part of the Market Street church in Salem, and began with the blessing of that good church. About 100 were in attendance at the first meeting of the new congregation. Pete Wilson, who has been working with Al Craig at Market Street, will do the preaching at South Salem. Al Craig remains at Market Street. Both congregations are made up of faithful Christians, qualified elders, and are blessed with excellent preachers. We wish them well and predict great things for the cause of Christ in Oregon's capitol city.--R.A.B.

San Jose, Calif. - Oct. 13, 1970: We are happy to report the opening of a new church building in San Jose. Two and a half years ago, the congregation in Saratoga was established with a group of saints coming out of the Sunnyvale church. Warren Cheatham has been working with this congregation since its beginning. On October 18, 1970, they met for the first time in a new church building at 1315 Miller Avenue in San Jose, and from henceforth will be known as the Miller Avenue church. Pete Wilson, of Salem, Oregon, will be with them in a gospel meeting the first week in the new building. We rejoice with them and wish them well in years to come. --R.A.B.

He finally got a haircut and there he was!"

Some of the merchandise advertised is neither recommended nor handled by us, but we are pleased with the general overall appearance and content. This catalog was prepared by a cooperative arrangement among publishers.

We chose this method of advertising for 1971 because of economic reasons, and because of the comprehensive quality of the repertory. We think churches and individuals can find in this catalog what they want and need. So look it over, and let us hear from you!

CANYON, B.C., CANADA: The Church of Christ in Canyon conducted a gospel meeting, October 18-25. Dave Bradford from Calgary, Alberta did the preaching. Fifty-three names of visitors were recorded in our register. A special lesson on the "Issues" was given on Sunday afternoon. The largest crowd of the meeting (43) were present and receptive. Four families from northern Idaho attended the meeting. There was one restoration -- E. R. Roark, Evangelist.

ROBERT H. FARISH: Our meeting with Lindy McDaniel preaching was well attended and two were baptized. We were well impressed with Brother McDaniel's healthy humility, deep conviction that the Bible is the word of God and his high moral standard. Brother McDaniel is a diligent student of the Bible and gives much time to the preparation of his sermons. 507 Wonsley Drive, Austin, Texas.

TRACT HEADQUARTERS: Well, this is not a good term inasmuch as churches of Christ do not have any headquarters! But in one sense of the term, The Gospel Guardian is becoming your headquarters for tracts ... your tract, my, it still doesn't sound right. Anyhow, what we are trying to say is, we are branching out in a big way in the tract business. We are publishing the old line Gospel Guardian (Tractof-The-Month series). We are publishing Know-The-Truth series of tracts. We are going to cooperate with R. L. Morrison in the publishing and printing of the Lamplighter series of tracts. And...we are launching out on a new economic series of tracts under the name, New-Tract-of-The-Month. See our back page ad this week. Robert H. Farish, who was the genius behind the former Tract-of-The-Month series, is editing the new series. This new series of tracts is something absolutely different. The tracts are somewhat larger in height than others, but still pocket size. They are eye-catching. They open like an accordion. They will be updated in approach, yet true to the ancient Book. They are not too lengthy. Churches will do well to subscribe to the New-Tract-of-The series. They sell for $6.00 per hundred. Why not let us know that you want to receive a shipment of a new title each month? You may return any shipment you choose not to keep for full credit, and you may cancil your subscription to the monthly series at anytime. But it will help your teaching program to let us send you 100 new tracts each month. What do you say? Monthly billing.

Max Ogden: We learn of the passing of the noble Max Ogden who won the hearts and souls of so many people in a long life of gospel preaching. He was instrumental in arranging for the famous Neal — Wallace debate in Winchester, Kentucky in the 'thirties. He was a great man in the kingdom. He'll be greater in heaven. Great service here. Great reward over there. We'll miss him here, but look forward to meeting him there. He last preached in Bear Wallow, Ky.
