Mr. and Mrs. Bert Spear drove to Kahlotus Sunday to spend the day visiting at the Kahlotus Assembly of God church, where the Rev. and Mrs. Laurence Randall are pastor- eng. They enjoyed the Sunday school and morning worship fol- lowed by a potluck dinner. Films of Africa were shown by Clay Coop- A successful visitation-evangel- ism program under the leadership of Thomas B. Yates, was carried out at the Cheney Christian church last week. Thirty'eight new members of the church resulted. Of this number 20 were by primary obedience and !baptism. Mr. Yates is director of the Christian Men's Fellowship of the Washington-North Idaho Area of Christian churches. A visitation-evangelism program differs from the old-time mass evangelism essentially in this re- spect: The old technique consisted in people coming to a church to hear evangelistic messages; the visitation program involves teams of two persons calling in the homes of their neighbors and friends and i presenting the claims of the church and Christ. At the close of the week a public meeting is held and those who have signed commitment cards present themselves for admission to the church. This method avoids any embarrassment that may occur in public meetings, and permits a more informal conversation be- tween visitor and prospect. Where tried the method has been found to be very suocessful. On a per capita basis the campaign in Cheney exceeded in success all others conducted by Mr. Yates. and stands third in actual numbers of members received. Mr. Ytes is a layman, but is now devoting him- self to full-time Christian serv- ice. A followup plan calls for weekly calling nights not alone for evan- gelism, but for cultivation of the: new membership and for friendly cultivation of both old members of the church and new-found friends. Callers meet on a stated evening for dinner at the church and make calls at designated homes. Houses to Sell!

The fifth grade room with an enrollment of 31 was moved to larger quarters formerly used by the eighth grade and the sixth grade now occupies the former ninth grade room. This move also places all grade school class rooms in the south end of the building whereby the side entrance and stairway can be used exclusively by the elementary pupils. All Junior high school stu- dents use the front entrance only. This eliminates congestion and noise during rush periods. Accord- ing to Superintendent Charles Salt, it also helps to vacate the building in short time during fire drills. CELESTA KINDER HEADS BUSINESS TEACHERS' GROUP Celesta V. Kinder, Cheney high school commercial teacher, Satur- day was elected president of the Easter n Washington Business Teachers' association. She has been the group's acting president.

Speakers at the session preceding the election included Lee Sahlin, who discussed the Junior Achieve- ment program; T. W.
