PAGE 9 With The Of WITH THE HELP OF GOD God is good, God is great, Always love and never hate. Always there in time of need; Listening to take immediate heed. All your words He hears, and all your tears. Sometimes you begin to feel SO down, Just call His name He's always around, Waiting to lend a helping hand, To even the lowest or most righteous man. The devil will lead you wrong, But the Lord will lead you right, And in darkness, help you see the light. Mistakes you make from day to day, Just ask for forgiveness and the help of God And you'll find that Heavenly way. Girls' Athletic Event Day Girl's Athletic Event Day.

Milton's style is very confusing but very elevated. Paradise Lost is not only a epic poem, but also John Milton's inter- most thoughts, such as his idea of carrying your own Heavenor Hell within yourself. Many of the class's questions are cen- tered around the Bible itself, like "When you die, does your soul go on to Heaven, Hell, or some other place?", "Are we punished when we die for our sins on earth?" or "Did Christ die for all our sins or just for the original sin of Adam and Eve?" So you can see that there is always a discussiongoingon. FIJ)RAI,A, ALA. TRACK TEAM NEWS. For all those girls at Florala High WELCOME BACK WELCOME BACK Mrs. Pitt- man.
