Approximately 76 per cent of the

and the same per cent of the anmar- 1
ried women missionaries in the last
33 years have been furnished; by the
student volunteer movement for
foreign missions, the executive committee
reported at the convention
today. The report was read by John
R. Mott, chairman of the executive
board, at the morning session. It
w nt into detail . of the movement
since it was organized 33 years ago.
Approximately, 1,000 institutions
wfcich have an enrollment of about
300,000 students are represented in
th? organization today. Its records
show, that 8,140 of the students enrolled
as volunteers have gone to
mission fields and of that number
2,202 were sent since the convention
six years ago in Kansas City.
' Last year in itforth America 47,666
students were studying missionary

"FLO FLO" FRIDAY
With its song novelties and ifs j
dance surprises, John Cort's mirthfill
and melodious oroluetion en- ,
titled Flo-Flo, will be the attraction
at the Grand Opera House starting ^
nej& Friday night Jan. 9th. for a .
limited engagement of one night on- ]
ly. " ,
Flo-Flo has five comedians, Geo. i
S. Kinnear as "Robert Simpson" and ,
Sam Howard as "Iaidor , Moser,"
partners, who own and operate the (
fashionable Bride Shop, create most ,
of the merriment. Fairbanks plays
the part of the American who wants j.
to spend everything to advertise the!
business, while Fein wants to save all
he can and still~~get results, The complications
brought about by this
curious contrast brings forth gales of ,
laughter. Then there are Andy Francis
anti John Ross as "Pink" and
"Mud", who are "handy in picking
up things, and who burlesque everything
that happens during the performance
in such a way as to make
one hold one's sides. Then last but j
not least comes Gus Vaughn in a'
rather odd part?tha? of a police-!
' man? who also -interjects comedy
j'into his dialogue that causes many a
, laugh. /
Carl Fletcher, as the boy rube,
dances and sings "There's Only Que
Little Girl," "When A Small Town
Boy Meets A Small Town Girl" and
"I Dont Know What You See In
Me," that have a rhymth to them
which keeps the audience swaying'. I
