Jackson conducting the service. * This will be the first of two "openings” which the church will have with the formal and statewide opening coming on November 11. Regular services are to be held in ‘the church during Sunday. Rev. Jackson’s sermon will be "Our Church Speaks.” At the scheduled statewide open ing, gifts from throughout the state and local area will be recog nized, Rev. Jackson said, but Sun day’s service is set primarily for the convenience of the A&M stu dents and the local congregation. The A&M Methodist Church was first organized in 1919 when the First Methodist Church of Bryan, with Rev. P. T. Ramsey as pastor, appropriated $500 for its start. In 1920, Rev. King Vivian became the first pastor, land the present tabernacle was built in 1923 under the ministry of Rev. Jesse Thompson. " A campaign was started in 1939 by both the local church and the Methodist Student Organization of Texas, the Wesley Foundation, to provide funds for the construction of a permanent plant. Rev. James Carlin and Rev. Clen Flinn were the leaders in the campaign. The building plans set fourth by the joint-groups were for the con- struction of a student center, yet to be constducted; an education building which was completed and occupied in 1948; and the Sanc tuary which has now been complet ed at a cost of $175,000. Cost of the church plant and grounds represents an invest ment of about $325,000. Several charter members of the church will be on hand for the first service among whom are A. Mitchell, Mr. and Mrs. T. C. Burk- halter, and Miss Clarice Hassell. Ministers who have served the litl'al church since its organization include King Vivian, Jesse Thomp son, R. L. Jackson, James Carlin, Walton Gardner, R. C. Terry, and the present minister James Ft Jvckson. Directors of student work have been Burton Smith, Gene Brackney, Carlos Davis, Asburry Lenox, Travis Baker, and Bob Sneed.

At that time it was a rebuilding job, for the original church had burned. He remained there for two and a half years. “Ours is a two fold purpose in College Station,” Mr. Jackson said when he first came to A&M.” We are here to serve the church, the constituency, and the members of the church, and through the inter ested members of this church—to serve the A&M College.” It was without question that Mr. Jackson would step into the ministry. His father and his father’s father were both min ister’s as was his father’s broth- The father has carried on for over fifty-three years.

Bolton dug the first spade full of earth on the site of the new A&M Methodist Church’s new sanctuary. Under construction for over a year the Methodists will have their first chance to worship in the new building Sunday. It is the second step in a proposed three part plan. The first part, the educational building, has been in operation several years. The final part will be a student center, which will be started later.

He, like millions of smokers, found one test that doesn’t leave you up a tree. It's the sensible test... the 30-Day Camel Mildness Test, which simply asks you to try Camels as your steady smoke —on a day-after-day basis. No snap judgments!
