PAGE EIGHT THE BILLINGS COUNTY PIONEER THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 1945 Roberts Honored Sunday A record crowd, composed of members of the congregation, and ffr~ends, turned ot~t last Sunday a~ the Congregational church in ~ea~, to honor the 50th anniver- ~ry of Roy. John Robert's yastor- ~ip. The speaker was Dr. Marvin ~. Bxan(R of l~rgo. A pot luck dinner was served at noon, with a special program following, in the church parlvrs. ~ev. Jc~hn Roberts was born in South Wales. Bv~tish Isles There were in this fanfily five children, four boys and one ~rl. When fourteen years of age he left home to continue his educa- ~km flrs't in Higher Grade School; t~hen for two and a half years at '"I~e Countess of Huntingdon Academy," a Congregational pre- ~:~ra~)ry school. While there he became a member of the Ebenezer Congrega,tional church. Swansea. Sot~'h V~ales. As a member of ~he C~ristlan Endeavor. he and three ~ther young men, with ~daer mere- bars vo assist them, conducted ser- vices for a~l sorts of men hl Oom- nmn Lodging Houses. He became a Sunday S~ho~l teacher, then Supt. of the Junior S. School, whicq~ had 500 pupils enrolled. These four 3~oung men, one of whom was Roy. Robert~ brother, were able to bring ~bout the esbablishmen't of the Ebenezer Mission church Which serves the poor and the sl.um axeas, and is now in its fiftieth year. In 1895 Rev. Rgberis moved to Bourne-End-on ~es and Join- ed the Cores-End Conga'effataonal ehuxch, and soon after took charge of the Well-End Mission church, where he served for twenty five years. It was here he met Mrs. Boberl~s. who was a nurse in the Great N~)~then, Hospital and a ~eacher in thhe Well-End Mission ~und~y school. He resig'ned from ,hSs post in 1920 due to ill health. from shell shock and over work. In 1920 he sailed from Sou0h- ~ampton, Eng'land to New York City, and t~hma to Canada, hoping *co retrain his he~lCh. In Augus~ he and his wife came m Ca.rrington ~nd Bordtfl~c. N. D where he was ~0~stor f~r seven,a/ years, and where new and be~u~.ful church waa ~uilt. I~ 1926 he took charge of the P~ars~hall, PMz~. and lWax, 1~cmth T}a,k~a churches. 'I~ere he ren%a~n- ed t~hroug~ rrm~y diffi u~t depres- sion years, making many ~lends. and often helping with the wo~ a the Indian Reservation. From these churches Rev. l~b- e.~ts and family came to ~, ~re he ~ serves as pastor ~n Che Be~ch, Ser~tlnel Bu te and Medom churches. His en~thusiasm amd energy for his c~urch work, for the yotm4 people ~f his church, for the 8%m- d~y Scthool, and the community it- self, have earned the adm~atiom of all. We caa only pray for ,h~ the prayer he has prayed for l~im- self, "Lord, give him ~tren~ to ~e end of his work, and work to the end of his sta'ength." Okays Extension Educational Plan A kind word for the type of edu- c~tion~1 program conducted by the ~nsion Service was contained In the 1944 report of the Alfl'ed P. Sloo~ Foundation, Inc. "l~e st~e- ment is quoted as follow~: "Probably the nearest approach to a type of education aimed at improving the econmrde stuns of local groups is found in the agrl- culeuml extension courses widely organized under state and federal allsplees." In North Dekota every county is on a coopera'ti~e basis and the IEo- gr~m of NTIAC Extension Service is statew~de. Civil Service Open 1,656 Jobs in N. W. A total of 1,656 jobs opening in the Federal service in Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska and the Dal~ms were announced today in lis~ sent to all first and second-class past offices in those states for posting ~by Rena B.

Shake- speare or the comic section. It's a great thing--tolerance' Folks who are better off in our town live on the west side of the railroad tr~icks. We've got a lake there, and the local park, and some real nice land. There used to be a phrase"from the wrong side of the tracks." It meant what you think . but you don't hear it any more. Not since Charlte Jenkins came home with the Purple Heart, and Wil- lie Wells got the Silver Star. There isn't any "wrong side" of the railroad tracks now!
