MORE ADVERTISING BY REV.
JOHNSTON MYERS S. O. S.!
Tomorrow is the day known legal
ly at Sunday, called the Sabbath by
Christians, and known as Rest Day
among the Quakers for centuries.
Also it has been called Rest Day by
many bartenders since one day last
year when Mayor Thompson issued
However, tomorrow isn't exactly
Rest Day. for everybody. Take the
Rev. Johnston Myers at Immanuel
Baptist cnurch, 2320 Michigan av.
He's going to have a wireless ap
paratus on his church platform and
messages will be sent to the Marconi
station downtown and back. After
that the Rev. Myers will preach on
"The Wireless Message."
This is one of a series of stunts the
Rev. Myers has been pulling. The
last one was distribution of Schulze
Co. bread. Everybody who came to
church got a little vest-pocket sized
loaf of bread, with a quotation from
the words of Jesus on it: "I am the
bread of life."
Opinion is divided among church
people whether the Rev. Myers is on
the right track. Some say there
ought to be some more simple and
direct way of putting across -the gos
pel of Christ than using Schulze
bread or sticking a wireless appa
ratus up behind the pulpit Still oth
ers say the Rev. Myers is advertising
and advertising is modern, scientific
and in line with business methods.
Myers hapens to be the same preach
er who filled the pulpit of Rockefel
ler's church in Cleveland a while ago,
delivering the remark that some day
John D. Rockefeller would be recog
nized as the greatest man of his age.
WHITMAN TO TALK AT NORTH
John L. Whitman fills the pulpit of
the North Shore Congregational
church, Wilson av. and Sheridan rd.,
10:45 a. m. Whitman is sup't of the
House of Correction. He's a quiet
man who runs a jail about as decent
ly as it's possible to run any jail in
Cook county. He's known as one of
the few public officials of Cook coun
ty who understands his job.
