Paper// The following L'eniten article has been written- for this column by the Rev. John C. Wetzel, pastor of the First Congregation Church of Arcade: > Easter Is the nigh monment in the calendar of the Christain Church. It has become the time when we are reassured of our eter­ nal convictions. It is the day which symbolizes the triumph of life over death, victory over ap­ parent defeat, for the winter of despair is past and the stirring of life is upon us. There is real fit­ ness in commemorating the Resur­ rection of Christ in that season when the earth begins to wear the garment of green Yet in the trem­ bling of intense excitement over the approaching Easter time, one cannot forget the violent incidents which preceded it. . There is never a high experience of life which does not first have its low ebb of emotional despond­ ency and dissipation of hope. In the case of the Master, death had spoken and must be obeyed. The body, once more, is defeated by the limits- of time. In the spirit­ ual pattern one must die In order •to live. The Apostle Paul speaks of this when he says. \So you al­ so must, consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus,\ We look to this Christ for the adequate explanation of \Lent.\ No specific part of the record of Christ's life bears .the title \Lent.\ But it is aw accepted practice to use the- days following the baptism of Jesus as the basic guiue for the Lenten Season. Easter, being the expressed cul­ mination of the Christian hope— Lent, then, becomes the period of self-sacrifice, self-control, and self- denial. It is during this period that we pursue a more intense study of Christ's preparation for His life's work. Our deep concern is to find the secret of this amaz­ ing life. It is the time we ask ourselves these questions—What activated His motives? Whereto lies the deep reservoir of strength, wisdom and comirfitment? What produced such a deep sense of dedication to a will and being be­ yond Himself? We shall have to pursue the answers to these quest­ ions with the ardor and devotion of a student, who, always and ever, relates his findings to the wisdom of living. Information for the sake of gaining knowledge is only an­ other way of hoarding. In the spiritual values, only the life which Is given away freely can be of any worth. Thus we approach Lent with the same firmness of purpose as did our Lord—\Dying to self—alive to God.\ Our devotion is now filled with clarity as we relate ourselves to the high ideals and principles which he set forth. No other section of the record of Jesus Christ is so concise and exact in detail as is the tempta­ tion scene (Luke 4:1-13). Here we aee a struggle of a titanic na­ ture. Yet from this struggle the Master gained a steady triumph over its haughty power. In this struggle victory was assured for the validity and force of later proclamations. Jesus taught that the spirit of man is greater than the physical. The physical often falls to support us with any powerful comfort under excruciating struggles of the soul. In tune with the Heavenly Father, the spirit of man says that life can be a steady triumph. It rings more true. It is more active. It is more living. It is more renewing. This is the knowledge which gratifies and champions truth. This we recognize, in in­ tellect, something to be gained, in wisdom, a blessing to be sought. The spirit of man must be victor­ ious over all the demands of the physical. He must possess the strength within to such a degree that he can gain the mastery of all outward cravings and desires. An effort of preparation of the vision of God as a Heavenly Father is needed if there- is to be a suffic­ iency to carry us past the gloom leaden clouds of \Lent\ into the powerful and noble witness of an \Easter.\ This is the road that the (Master took. Whereupon—we must cast ourselves, needing every mite as well as every talent we possess. We do not walk the road alone. This same Christ, Who was vic­ torious over all, travels the path with us. Jesus' preparation for mastery of even the cross was one of purify­ ing self to His task, acquiring a keener sense of the motive in the task, learning reliance upon His Heavenly Father to the fulfillment of the task. From the time He returned from the scene of the temptation in the wilderness, un­ til He would say from the cross, \It Is finished. Into Thy hands I commend'My spirit,\ He knew he must be subservient to His Father's will. It would be a reliance upon His Heavenly Father's strength, wisdom, and authority, that would carry Him through the years a- head. From these days in the wilder­ ness comes the crystalization of spiritual wealth ana vitality which continues to place at man's dis­ posal the riches of the Eternal God. All one has to do to claim this inheritance is to follow in the way of Christ. But this Can­ not be done without personally identifing one's self with this \way \ In a truer sense of the word Lent becomes the forerunner of life. Easter is the harbinger of spiritual spring, the tone of new beginnings. Thus-^in self sacrifice, self-control, self-denial, the seeds of Jesus' way of life are sown. Easter is the flower and fruitage to the summer of God's love. Lent is a time of growth and develop­ ment toward the harvest. Faith without works is dead. Lent with­ out the new life is fruitless effort and wasted endeavor. .

Robert W. Galvin, Motorola President announced that the fund reached $45,042,958 last year, a 27 percent increase over 1958 Motorola contributed from its 1958 profits $5,147,133, and the fund itself earned an additional $5,297,227 Both the company contribution and the fund earnings set records in the 12-year-old profit sharing plan, the second largest deferred- type plan in the United States. According to Galvin. \profit sharing has encouraged employee interest in producing and increas­ ing profits because the individual employee will share in thoso pro­ fits. In addition, the success- in the growth of Motorola profit sharing has helped to encourage experienced personnel to remain with the company. Profit shar­ ing emphasizes the common inter­ est between employees, the stock- Participants in the profit shar­ ing plan contributed $1,821,288 last year. The ratio of company contribution to participants con­ tribution was $2.96 fcr each dol­ lar invested by an employee For every dollar invested by a •charter member of the fund to date, he or she has realized a re­ turn of $6.92 For those in the fund since its beginning in 1947, the value of their share is equiva­ lent to an extra $1.41 per hour over and above regular per hour wages. An employee who contri­ buted a maximum of S200 a year since lhe fund's inception now has an account value of $16,618 Employees at Arcade plant whr- have contributed a maximum of $200 per year since they became members of the plan in January, 19J6, now have an account value of $3,070. For each dollar they contributed during 1959 into the fund they qualified for a return of $4.01 in their profit sharing ac­ counts.
