No, not all the time; just on Sundays. You probably know quite a few. Maybe it's not always the tummy that hurts. It could be a big toe or maybe the left ear; but it's always something; and it always acts up on Sundays. Folks, I am not trying to be funny. I am dead serious about this old "song and dance" you hear played every Sunday. my tummy hurts; my big toe aches; myleftear pains; etc. Listen, you can like it or lump it; but I say that these belly.aching professors "ain't got" tummy trouble. They've got a bad case of heart trouble. There are those who say, "I just don't feel like attending church today. I don't feel too good." Well, these poor, wretched backslidden church members are right; they don't feel good. Who would feel good in their condition? Now, here' the rub. If these so.called Jesus-loving saints are so sick on Sunday, why aren't they still sick on Monday? Why don't they call the boss down where they work and sing him that old 'q don't feel good" song? If mamma's too sick on Sunday to attend church, then I wonder who's been doing all the cooking and house cleaning? Oh, yes, I can't imagine why the children's attendance record at the public school is so much better than at Sunday School. say, why not quit kidding yourself? Sure, you don't feel like going to church; but the reason is that you're backslidden and as cold as a cucumber. I have never met a backslidden church member who enjoyed attending church, have you? The next time you ask someone why he was not at church and he (or she) says, "I haven't been feeling wellfl' then you should ask him if he was sick or ff he just didn't feel like going to church. You see, there's a great deal of difference. I do believe that there are some professors who detest the thoughts of going to church so much that they make themselves sick dreading it, In fact, some of these same hellbound bellyachers would rather have a headache and stay home to eat popcorn, drink soda pop, and watch T. V. than to feel good and have to go to church. Let me emphasize this point. If a man, woman, boy, or girl can lay out of church and not be chastised by the Lord, then the Bible says they are bastards and not sons. Let your hair stand straight up and your liver quiver; and if you don't like it, go tell God. He's the one that said it. If you bunch of "I don't feel gooders" would get saved and feel better, it might be possible to have a revival now and then. I feel sorry for the many pastors who must constantly listen to the same old "six and seven" every Sunday. "I would have loved to have been to services this week, but I haven't been feeling well." The pastor knows that some people in his congregation are really sick when they say they are. There's others, though, who could say they had broken a leg; and he would be tempted to call their neighbors to see ff it were true I can say this with all honesty and sincerity. The frivolous aches and pains that keep some folks from church are insignifi- cant when compared to the heartache it causes the faithful few who do attend. How many times have you sat in church and could not enjoy the services because you were troubled about some vho erent there? The amount of grief and pain caused by these "I-don't.feel.good professors" would be hard to'determine. I do know this one thing, though; it's going to take more than a tummy ache to keep a true child of God away from church.

I  suppose the interest stems from both the desire of athletes to per- form well and the interest coaches have in their athletes attaining or reducing to certain weights. There are, it seems, notions that specific weights are needed, say, in certain positions in foot- ball. With respect to the competi- tion a boy might meet, this may be a sound theory.
